This was the fate of all my SH Figuarts Kamen Rider figures. I had to clean my room before I moved to Japan but I was running out of time so I just threw them all in a cardboard box. Finally took them out of the closet today. Man… that’s a lot of money I’ve spent on Kamen Rider figures in like… one year’s worth of time.
And I still have these guys that I haven’t reviewed either! I just dug them out from the corner of my room to give it a good dusting with a swiffer. I don’t even remember where I got the Kuuga from ^^;. Does any of you still watch Kamen Rider? I’ve given up on following it after OOO. I’m sure the stories are still great and interesting but the suit themes are just so terrible starting with Fourze. What I mean is their equipment and suits ARE straight up toys that look too ridiculous for my suspension of disbelief to handle. I know the franchise is practically one big toy commercial aimed at kids, and it works, but the show used to be more passive about that stuff, the tone was more serious if not just darker, the main protagonist wasn’t a goody-do-gooder or a let’s-all-be-friends! type guy. How did we went from Kuuga to Kabuto to Fourze to… what in the world of Freakazoid is Kamen Rider Ex-Aid?! I really must be getting too old for this stuff.
Never got a chance to review my acquired SIC figures too. Think I’ll just leave them this way. Probably not going to review the other SHF either unless the KR bug bites me. Speaking of which, there hasn’t been a new MG Kamen Rider since OOO huh?
Last but not least, I’ve also acquired a SH Figuarts Vegeta once upon a time. I’m really bad at reviewing human figures (with facial expressions) but maybe I’ll give this a go later on.
Still focusing on Gunpla at the moment :)
Normally, I don’t show you my finished product until the review. However, I am overly excited about the result (not to mention that I actually finally completed a model…) that I just gotta show you all before reviewing it (which I am working on as we speak) ^^;. Now that the hands are “fixed”, I can finally say…

After much delay, it’s time for the moment of truth: the revelation of the boxes…

As is the tradition every year, it’s time for another contest following the obligatory anniversary post. The game is simple and takes very little time… but don’t expect it to be easy. *puts on troll face* >:)
UPDATE 2: Last day to submit guesses will be on 10/4 at 9:30 PM.
UPDATE: Hints revised a bit because I found one that was a bit misleading.

First time ordering from fellow comrade Gundam Guy‘s online store and it certainly won’t be my last. Loved the experience and shipping was easy on the wallet since we both live on the same coast- the huge box only cost $15 to ship. All it took was send him an email with what I want, work out a deal, hand over the cash, shake hands, and viola! Here’s what I got…

Had a blast here the last time with a few of my friends so we came back this time to eat and drink to our heart’s content the night before going back to school ^^.
As always, if you have an empty stomach then proceed with caution.

Here’s my last SHF review for the year as well as my last SHF of Kamen Rider Double. Like I said before, saved the best for last :). Check it out- SH Figuarts Kamen Rider W FangJoker!
This is what Kamen Rider W is all about.
My first Web Tamashii limited SHF. My backlog of SHF is increasing faster than I can review them. Despair is my goal! orz
