It’s been a long time coming but I’m happy to announce my return to TokuNation galleries! And it’s time to take a look at the long awaited final Showa Rider, Kamen Rider J! J rounds out the trinity of movie exclusive riders from the post-RX era that is still considered Showa by Toei. The 3 films,Shin, ZO, & J are some of my favorite guilty pleasures. Each for differnet reasons. So it brings me great pleasure to finally own all 3 of these figures. This has been nearly 3 years in the making.
Kamen Rider J, you’ll notice has a very similar design to ZO. Which is intentional, but has also caused many people to mistake the two for one another for years. But when you get down to it, they are both very very different. The two figuarts themselves don’t share a bit of molding at all that I can determine, so J winds up with his own unique personality from ZO. While not perfect, J is an admirable send off to the Showa Era of Kamen Rider. Now let’s hope his iconic Rider Machine, the J-Crosser, is on the way soon.
