Toy Review: S.H. Figuarts 009:RE Cyborg Joe Shimamura

The S.H. Figuarts Joe Shimamura is taken from the 2012 anime film 009 Cyborg.This means Joe has a modernized look without letting a huge chunk of Ishinomori’s 1960’s creation.His button on the uniform are now smaller, so as his eyes ending the whole theme with high-cut boots.

Joe is inclusive with just 2 extra hands and two muffler extensions one is on a stiff plastic mold and the other on a flexible bond.Exchanging parts are not out of the ordinary and quite standard compared to today’s S.H. Figuarts releases. Looks too perfect, is there something a miss on the figure?

Bandai Tamashii Nations is not new in creating S.H. Figuarts toys based on an anime series. In fact some of the earliest releases were successful that it expanded its flavor to other collectors. Most notable are the Dragon Ball Z warriors and villains, One Piece and even Pretty Cure. The sculpt is very impressive and puts Art in S.H. Figuarts. However it compromised the “character expression” in the key points we all know in this lineIf there is an ab joint and less hindered leg articulation, this could have been more engaging. More to this from the video review below.
