Toy Review: S.H. Figuarts Warz Gill (Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger)

As the second villain released for the S.H. Figuarts Gokaiger line,  Warz Gill supposed to have poofy trousers but Bandai opted to use a slender feature. The S.H. Figuarts Warz Gill in enveloped with white, gold and blue paint applications and a chest detail somewhat similar to GokaiSilver in Gold mode.

There is nothing much to say about swappable parts as he only has two open splayed hands and one pointing hand. Changing parts may be a stretch to collectors with stout hands, reaching the default wrist maybe a challenge. Though the tassels near the wrists are using a soft plastic mold, the hands are hidden most of the time which is a bummer since the hand molds look great. 

I'm really glad that Warz Gill has the S.H. Figuarts treatment as the first figure announced representing this character was a non poseable figurine. Surprisingly, he has great amount of articulation and the ball joints on his robe does help in letting the leg and arms joints move freely.

My only issue are the number of hand replacements and the tassel on the wrists. A bended pair of tassels will help, showing the details on the hands that are easily missed. For collectors with big hands, it will be somewhat difficult to reach the default hands to replace it with extra parts.  Again, another great sculpt from Bandai, but could have been better if the company just gave a few extras for us to use. Bandai seems to be late in releasing this to the market but just in time before Super Megaforce airs.
