After I got into Transformers, I made the mistake of browsing other reviews’ videos and web pages and kept seeing all this stuff about Figuarts. Their biggest franchise being the Kamen Rider series. Then I started watching them. I will tell you it is worth tracking down, and the Ryuki series is one of my favorite, and is getting a great deal of attention. If you are interested in collecting this line of figures, Ryuki is an essential.
The detailing that Bandai puts into these guys is at an incredible level. From the crest on his helmet to having the segmented eyes through the helmet. much of that is hard molded, not just painted on.
To calling in a monster to assist with the final attack!
Ryuki as shown above also comes with his contract beast, Dragredder, whose various parts become his weapons, such as his tail being the sword. Also the leg sections can become sheilds as well. He is multi-segmented so he can flex via ball joints. I haven’t messed around too much with him, I think if posed a lot, you will have to use clear nail polish to tighten the joints back up.
If you collect the higher end of figures, I can say he is worth the price. Ryuki makes a great center piece for any display and really shows off what a figure can do.
