SHfiguarts Kamen Rider Joker

Using the T2 Joker Memory and Narumi Sokichi’s LostDriver, Shotaro henshins into Kamen Rider Joker.

On first glance, Joker might seem to be just a lazy design, being a totally black repaint of W’s basic forms or a stripeless JokerJoker form from Movie Wars 2010.  However, he’s actually a homage to Kamen Rider Black, much like how W is a homage to Riders #1 and #2.

Kamen… Raidaa… Bla- oops.

Joker is pretty much a movie-exclusive form or a movie Rider. However, he did appear in the last episode of the TV series.

What’s really amazing about Joker is that Hidari becomes pretty badass. He thrashed Heat “Fire Girl” Dopant with an oldschool Rider Kick, and defeated Metal “Macho Man” Dopant with an equally oldschool Rider Punch.

Now, back to the figure itself. Joker’s a remold of the standard W body, except with the LostDriver instead of the DoubleDriver.

However, Joker has this really awesome flatcoat on him, giving him a nice matte texture. Interestingly, the W forms have different level of matteness: CJ was glossy, FJ was semigloss, and Joker’s all out matte.

Joker doesn’t have much accessories apart from alternate hands, since he doesn’t use any weapons or equipment. A Rider Kick/Punch effect part would’ve been nice though.

Overall, Joker’s a very fun Figuart to have, and is an essential part of any W fan’s collection.
