Since The Next got destroyed in the great purge of MegaThreads, let us continue our discussion here, in the wonderful world of V3.

The First Thread: It got eaten in the great feast of 2010.

The ToyBox Wiki with updates from ShukuenShinobi said:
Before Figuarts, there was Souchaku Henshin. Souchaku Henshin was a line of articulated Kamen Rider toys that featured die cast attachable armor. Somewhere along the way, Souchaku Henshin came to the point where it was very articulated and essentially, became the flagship figures of the TV series. The attachable armor pretty much became a bonus, and was simplified greatly as time went on.

So, someone at Bandai headquarters apparently decided they couldn't get enough of this crazy articulation and decided that they had to have more. Screw the attachable armors. And that's how the Figuarts line was born. Top notch styling that remain close to their televised/silver screen counterparts (1:12 scale, these dudes stand at 15 cm tall, roughly) with articulation (35 movable points!) and durability (die cast feet with metal pins!) that never compromises. The line premiered with Masked Rider The NEXT, churning out righteously awesome figures of Rider 1, Rider 2, and V3 all in NEXT-y goodness. While The NEXT created some extremely divided opinions, these figures have received near-universal acclaim from casual and hardcore fans.

At first, S.H. Figuarts mostly concentrated on the Kamen Rider franchise, with the odd anomaly now and then like Domon and Zero. But recently, Bandai seems to be committed to branching out the line into other franchises, such as Dragonball, Pretty Cure, One Piece, and Super Sentai.

Shoot I should get another Gills. I knicked the gold on one of mine when removing his pincer things.

Just a correction on the Smilodon quote. There's a hiragana (
"ra") missing and the translation is slightly off. It means something more like
"When you've eaten, put forth your enthusiasm and bring/find (it) home, Mick."
It's the line from the episode about Evil Tail, when Ryuube was feeding Mick the special dessert. :laugh:

Thanks for setting up the new thread, dude. Just a few things though:

I don't think we ever saw a prototype of Hardsplasher Figuarts EX. And Revolgarry was just a scene decoration, so I don't think it's meant to be a Figuarts EX. Also, I think the six Showa Figuarts won't be released at all since they're just mockups. And finally, the bike Kuuga was riding in Tamashii Feature's Vol. 1 back in Feb 2010 is TryGouram. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks again for maintaining the thread. :thumbs:

Got GataKiriBa through as a backup in case TaToBa is not available so I will at least have a OOO SHF.
