At long last the FINAL Showa Kamen Rider has finally been scheduled for release! Arriving in January 2017 as a Tamashii Web Exclusive is the long waited S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider J!
Not only completing the trio of Showa Movie Riders from the mid 90’s, Kamen Rider J is also the last of the Showa riders overall to be released as a figuart. Which is really fitting when you consider he was featured in the last Showa Rider production. J will include two full sets of hands, an additional right hand featuring his signature “J” pose, J’s sidekick grasshopper Berry, and an alternate set of wings for Berry!
Kamen Rider J finally rounds out the Showa era of riders but we’re still missing two Heisei Riders right now (G & Kiva). We wonder how long it will be before those gaps are filled as well. Does J’s release bode well for either of them? What do you think? Time will tell. And be sure to get in touch with your preferred middleman or Tamashii Web Exclusive service when orders open to secure one. You can find a list of some such sites here.
