Was gonna lump this with the Gunpla Chat post but… this is not exactly “Gundam model” even if it is of the MG level ^^;. Haha.. even before I got into Kamen Rider or know what W is, I sorta called it on the MG FangJoker in this post. Again, waiting has paid off. It’s not so much that I don’t like CycloneJoker but I find it boring to be building the same model over and over again; FangJoker is basically the CycloneJoker model with spikes and half a different color scheme… and by extension, so is Skull. Still, I think I’ll be picking both of them up along with MG ReZEL Commander, DSH, and some other stuff. I WANTS THAT MG FEDORA! I am really not feeling those hands though… they look really unnatural! For “human” models, I think it’s better with it comes with fixed/set hands like its Figuarts counterpart than those..uh… mecha hands. Also, they look like they have some really thick thighs o_O
And with the addition of Accel, the whole basic W Rider line-up is complete (minus EXTREMEEEEEEE!! and TRIAL!)… and Bandai did all that with just ONE frame! Accel seems to be the only rider that differentiates itself from the other… but it’s also the most expensive thanks to its Bike gimmick ^^;. Being 1/8 scale, these models are HUGE! 240 mm = ~9.5″ so it’s almost the height of a PG! Originally I thought they would be scaled accordingly to match a MG Gundam but guess not o_o.
Haha… another example of “real men ride each other”… xD
