S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Skull

 Alright, for my first review, ill be reviewing S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Skull.

Packaging: Nothing to special here, just the normal SHF box. This one has a logo next to the photo denoting that it is a Tamashii Web exclusive. The other logo below that one shows he is from the Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010. 

Accessories: Comes with everything he would need to come with: Five sets of hands, Two hats (one damaged and one not), Two scarves (one laying down and one flowing out) and his gun. If you want to count his belt, you could, it does come off his waist. Removing his hands and head are pretty easy, getting them back on can be a bit tricky. They are both on small ball-joints, so they move back and forth when trying to replace the head or hands. After a few times tho, you get the hang of it.

Articulation: As with all the Figuarts, they have GREAT articulation. You can pose him in just about any pose you can imagine. The knees are double jointed, the elbows and shoulders are single jointed. The shoulder is also set on a larger ball-joint providing even more movement. The feet are die-cast, providing more balance.

Paint: With his color schemes, there isn't much there. This biggest problem is the head. If you remove the hat to many times, it will rub off the paint on the forehead.

If you liked Kamen Rider W then I would look into getting this figure. With it being a exclusive, he is hard to get tho, so if your not wanting to hunt for it, try for the Crystal Skull version. The only difference in the two is the head. I believe they fixed the paint issue with the head on the Crystal version
