SHfiguarts Kamen Rider Faiz

Standing By // Complete

A quick review of Kamen Rider Faiz/555, the titular character of 2003’s Kamen Rider 555.

I’ve had Figuarts Faiz for a while now, finally gotten around to reviewing him. Faiz’s Figuart rendition faced a fair bit of criticism upon its release, mainly due to its “fat thighs” and the lack of silver paint on his fingertips. Faiz’s thighs didn’t bother me, to be honest. The onscreen costume generally made the thighs seem thicker too, so I guess that it’s pretty screen accurate. The silver fingertips, on the other hand, appeared to have no justification at all. Releases like Kiva Emperor, Shadowmoon and Amazon had painted fingers/fingertips, so I have no idea why Bandai decided to scrimp on Faiz.

Faiz comes with a crapload of accessories to depict his equipment’s various modes. As shown above, he comes with multiple buckles (1 without the Faiz Memory, 1 without the entire phone), the Faiz Edge, the Faiz Phone (in phone, gun, and gun+pointer modes), and the Faiz Shot which comes molded with a hand.

The belt itself is very detailed. Interestingly, the entire belt is a separate, removable piece, much like The First/Next.

The Faiz Phone’s level of detailing is very impressive too.

Strangely, Figuarts Faiz has a somewhat womanly figure, especially when it comes to the rear. Faiz did have a female user, but still, this is pretty weird.

Overall, Faiz is a pretty good Figuarts release, and the accessory count more than makes up for the lack of the painted fingertips.

    Nice gallery and photos man. could the fingertips thing be due to it having to be 2 diffrent colors and they alredy did the red-ing? anyway looks nice, i really like the pic in dutch angle of his lower right leg ready to kick the existance out of an orphanoc

      I dunno, Amazon was way more complicated, and yet he has silver-tipped fingers.
