Kamen Rider Faiz, what an interesting rider. While Inui Takumi used the belt for most of the show, there are also a few other people who used it as well. Takumi himself is also an interesting character. He’s not as arrogant or badass as Tendou, but he’s got his moments.
The package is nicely coloured. It’s themed similar to the Faiz suit, black box with red letterings.
What can I say about the Faiz suit.. Well, the first thing you’ll notice is how bulky he looks. Compared to Kabuto who looks anorexic, Faiz here looks..well..fat. Ok that’s not entirely true. He looks meaty xD It’s almost accurate to the suit in the show though. There’s a lot of discussion about how disproportioned he is, but I don’t really mind it. Sure he has curvy thighs. Sure his head looks a little bit small compared to his body, and yeah I can see his ass shape, I’m ok with that 😀
Overall detail is great with a couple of disappointments(discussed later on)
Other articulation notes:
-Head can spin 360
-Usual shoulder SHF joint and pelvis joint.
-Rotation below the shoulder
-Foot has toe articulation and can bend side to side just like any other SHFs with a diecast foot.
Overall, pretty great articulation as expected of any SHF. Only disappointed part is the 90 degree bend.
While I was trying to do the crouching pose, I might’ve forced some of the leg to pose a bit too much and this made the thigh rub with the..crotch..area(man that sounds wrong) Anyway, please be careful when you pose with this figure and make sure you don’t rub the red paint lines with any of the body parts and you should be fine.
One last disappointment is that the legs are wobbly and loose. Kind of annoying when I was trying to pose him in kicking poses.
The tiniest nitpick I can do is that they don’t give you a Faiz Driver with the phone flipped open to do exceed charges and the holster holding the Faiz Shot has no alternative when the Faiz Shot itself is removed, but these are SUPER TINY nitpicking that’s not really important ^^
Now, a Horse Orphenoch or Wolf Orphenoch S.H.Figuarts would be nice 😀
