Play Arts Riku
By the time
I really became aware of this figure, I was already waiting
for a KH2 version. That worked out well, huh?
Luckily I accidentally caught wind of a reissue and snagged
him for 47% off retail
price so I can't really complain about the wait.
I'm not a "box person", obviously.
But if someone were buying this from anything other than a
reputable source, they might be tempted to think it's a
knock-off from a quick inspection of the box. No
sparklies, no foiled text, no holograms, Square-Enix?
Then again, finally having my Riku is
sparkly enough. The eyes are clear and nicely done,
he's got just the slightest smirk from certain angles, and
it's unquestionably Riku. As for articulation,
well... I understand why so many people complain about KH
figure articulation. But the fact that he can move
at all and holds his poses is kind of just fine with
me. He's not much for accessories, either, only
coming with an extra set of hands (fists, for... uh,
angsting and punching?) and his weapon, Soul Eater.
See, he can pose! Even if
he's looking at me like he wants me dead. I'm
used to it, Riku.
This was just a simple ass
shot, until I noticed how amusingly creepy the
waist looks. You need to eat more, boy.
I was worried that KH Riku
was going to look really bad next to KH2 Sora,
but they actually look decent next to each
other. And Riku's still taller, so he's
happy about that.
just me or does Sora have a knowing smirk
right here? (You need to eat more,
too. Geez, look at those legs.)
