SH Figuarts Kamen Rider W FangJoker


Hands down the most awesome form of Double in my opinion xP. Instead of Shoutarou, Philip is the host body for this form so henshin time is actually limited due to his weaker body. As FangJoker, W seems to be more agile and fights more ferociously than the other forms. Love the spiky flares all over the body which give W a bit more wild look to go with the fighting style!

Quote: “Akuma to ainori suru yuuki, aru ka na?” – “Do you have the courage to ride with the devil?”. I noticed a a misleading photo on the back; the lower left photo shows FangJoker using CycloneJoker’s “Count up your sins!” hands but they are actually not included >_>.

Hands: Open palms, holding hands, two-finger pose hands, “Count up your sins” hands ver. Philip.

Weapons: Arm Fang, Shoulder Fang, Maximum Drive.

360 degrees view. FangJoker is quite the looker! :D

Very fearsome!

Closer look at the details. The Fang Memory and the W Driver are reasonably detailed for their size so I have no complaints there (except the fang memory’s design reminds me a bit of Power Rangers). I think W looks aesthetically better overall with all the spiky flares and whatnot… just check out those eyes! ^^. Oh yea, those protruding spikes all over the body are sharp enough to make you say “o0o!” but not enough to say “ouch!”. The W-fin is also improved over the other forms because it doesn’t have that nasty nubmark underneath it but it also seems to be a bit more fragile since it is thinner as well.

Let’s get wild!

Just like the real thing, the figure is also very agile.

ADVENT! TO THE TOP!

“What can I say? I’m just too damn popular”

ARM FANG

*PSH* *Dinosaur screech* ARM FANG!

Swap out the normal wrist band for the Arm Saber version. This can sometimes be a pain because you have to pull out the hand first and pop it back in afterward… which is not exactly easy.

All the Fang parts are hard plastic so caution is advised when handling them to prevent risk of snapping.

SHOULDER FANG!

FANG BOOMERANG!Actually… the Fang part is not really usable because the tip of the blade is actually missing -_-.

Again due to the missing blade tip, W can’t wield it because Shoulder Fang looks so silly without it.

I wonder why W never use both at the same time…

RIDER KICK


1! 2! 3! “Rider Kick…” RIDER KICK! *ksh! ksh! ksh! Dinosaur screech* FANG!

MAXIMUM DRIVE!

haaa…

ファングストライザー!

FangJoker has a lovely Rider Kick but I find it rather difficult to capture in still photography because the move is in constant motion during the whole sequence. Slashing someone with your feet is just plain awesome.

Why is there no FangMetal, or FangTrigger? Is the Fang memory obstructing the left side from changing memory?

Damn… I wished Double could’ve fought like this too.

W

“さあ。。。”

“お前の罪を数えろ!”

“悪魔と相乗りする勇気。。。あるかな?”

W ASSEMBLE!

The Jokers

We need something like a “Den-O x W” team-up where we can have different W from multiple points in time in different forms and team up :D


LOOK! THE EAST IS BURNING RED!

VERDICT


Kamen Rider W in any other form is still W. Though this one has some minor aesthetic improvements over the others in that Bandai fixed the W-fin’s nubmark (it’s not there) and the joints (elbows and knees) are in the appropriate color (not black like the others), this is still the same W. I think I can safely assume that anyone who collects SHF and loves W will undoubtedly love the FangJoker (top favorite or not), and will want to get their hands on this figure anyway so I’m guessing there’s no need for a “verdict”, right? :D
