Now, count up your sins! by stalydan Now, count up your sins! by stalydan
This is the Chibi Arts Kamen Rider W/Double figure and the Soul Eater Shinigami ring that I bought at MCM Expo Manchester 2012. I really like both of them and they look great on my desk.

By the way, in case anyone does ask, the Japanese (さあ、お前の罪を数えろ! Saa, omae no tsumi o kazoero!) means "Now, count up your sins!", Double's catchphrase.

:D @ KR W Cyclone Joker!

Pity I didn't get to go to the MCM Expo in Manchester though.

But at least I've got myself Figma Samus Aran & SHF Akibared instead. :aww:

Oh cool :D Can't say I'm a big Metroid fan but when I saw it on the Good Smile website, I was very tempted to get one myself.

I really need to watch Akibaranger. It should tide me over until Kamen Rider Wizard comes out. I don't like Fourze or Gobusters so I've been stuck for watching any new tokusatsu shows xD

Incredibly! It's a shame this is the only Kamen Rider that's been done in this style; I would have loved to have picked up a OOO's figure. Think of how awesome that could be! Form changing would be really easy as well!...

Why isn't this a thing already?!

I know, right? :( They could've at least released FangJoker, I love FangJoker... I haven't watched OOO yet, but Kamen Rider OOO, Eiji, and Ankh probably would've made adorable Chibi-Arts! I guess CycloneJoker, Shotaro, and Philip didn't sell well enough for Bandai to consider making more KR Chibi-arts figures. *tear*
I would've liked if they also did some Sentai Chibi-arts. I mean, my wallet would be crying, but still...

I know what you mean :( Asking for all forms of a rider like Double is a bit mad seeing as he has nine initial ones and then another two added to the series later with another in the movies. It's just sad that they didn't sell enough to even warrant a limited release of more like HeatMetal or LunaTrigger.
At least with the OOO collection, you could sell the first three forms (TaToBa, GataKiriBa and LaToraTah) like they sold the medals for it: TaToBa with the Grasshopper arms as one figure and then sell the Lion and Stag Bettle heads and the Cheetah legs as a seperate set. If it worked for those, I'm sure it could have worked for this.

It's quite surprising that they possibly didn't sell enough too cuz from what I heard, the exclusive Shotaro and Philip figures sold out very quickly on the Tamashii Web shop. Maybe collectors are more into poseble, scale-accurate figures than cute, chibi, stationary figures.
Well, there is always hope. Bandai has just recently released S.H.Figuarts of past Sentai and Kamen Rider seasons. There is a small possibilty that they might revive the Chibi-arts line for them as well. Not only that, but any new figures they make might be better designed than CycloneJoker, Shotaro, and Philip because now they have more experience with other Chibi-arts from series like One Piece, Tiger and Bunny, etc. They were just starting the Chibi-arts line when the KRW ones came out, so they have a few flaws, like CycloneJoker's loose legs, for example.

Oh yeah, those legs are really loose on mine too.
I would have loved to have got the Shotaro and Philip figures too but I got the Double figure at a convention stall that only had this and a few Kamen Rider model kits. When I got home, I found out how hard they were to get.
Hopefully they do release a few more of the chibi style figures for Sentai and Rider series, it'd be a shame if they didn't.

From all of the reviews I've watched/read on Chibi-arts CycloneJoker, all of them said that the legs were loose. I use a little bit of double-sided tape on mine to help them stay. Hopefully, if they ever make more KR or some Sentai ones, they will fix this problem.
Yes, Shotaro and Philip are sold out EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!! >_< I was actually very close to getting the Shotaro and Philip ones on eBay (for $260, ouch), but the guy I bought them from actually had the nerve to sell them to someone else, most likely someone he knew locally outside eBay, while they were still listed. :P Yes, you can probably imagine my despair when I got a message saying that my money had to be refunded because the figures were already sold... OTL Oh well, I'm still waiting and checking on eBay everyday for them. Who knows, they may pop up one day for cheap. :3 Until then, I'm probably going to make Shotaro and Philip plushies to fulfill my need for cute representations of my favorite KRW characters. :3
The last convention I went to was back when I wasn't a fan of KR yet, so I didn't really pay too much attention to what kinds of KR stuff was sold there, but I do remember seeing a few KR figures/kits and there only being one booth that had something Sentai related. I guess there aren't enough tokusatsu fans outside Japan to sell anymore than that.

It really is a niche market. I know a couple of people who know what Super Sentai is and even fewer who know what Kamen Rider is. I really would like to see more stuff being sold at conventions but at the same time, it doesn't bother me too much that there isn't. It'd just be better though if there was so I wouldn't have to pay shipping fees for my figures xD
