Toy Review: S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Exceed Gills

If there is one S.H. Figuarts that I never fail to see on shelves up to this day is Kamen Rider Exceed Gills. This updated form of the rider has sharper accents on his horns, shoulders, and the rest of the extremities. Moreover, the red parts are more prominent especially on his belt and the claws on the forearms and heels.

Included in the set are 6 different kinds of open splayed hands, an extra head with an open mouth and two pairs of Gills Stingers, each segmented into 3 parts. Swapping the head is an easy plug on the neck joint that is a good thing considering how difficult it is to do with newer S.H. Figuarts. The Gills Stingers have markers to act as guides on how they are connected together. Once established each replaces the shoulder blade caps at the back and let the hands support the weight of these accessories.

Now I kind of understood why there are still stocks online and the price keeps on decreasing just to dispose from the shelves. The joints on the figure are loose and the claws on the body just keeps on detaching. Though I understand why that is but there are no secure locks to keep them on throughout the experience. The most irritating parts of all are those Gill Stingers. These don't clip on well at the back of the figure and so as the segments that supposed to keep them together. To me, Exceed Gills as an S.H. Figuarts is a missed opportunity to be one of the best Agito-related figures in the market. More to this from the video review below.
