Here is my review of S.I.C. Toei Hero Net Limited Version Kamen Rider J w/c I had last Oct 14, 2011 together with my S.I.C. Limited Kamen Rider Den-O Rod Form & Axe Form ( w/c I might make
a review next week. )
This figure cost me around 8, 809 Japanese Yen / 115.45 USD.

I can only come up with 3 words with regards to its packaging, plain and simple.. 🙂
Note: Prior to this review I already took most of the twisties because its already a habit of mine to check the figure first before leaving the place where I bought my figures.
The sculpt is really nice and the details are so… S.I.C.-ish.. 🙂
In my opinion the body’s “architectural ” design is a generation 2 or 3 for the S.I.C. line where the entire parts of his body can now move further and has a great articulation IF we would compare it to the previous S.I.C. figures. And almost the enitre part of his joints are being supported by ball joints
( arms, shoulders, hands and knee ).
The entire arm can turn in 360 degrees but due to its shoulder pads design hinders the entire arm to flap further.
Neck / Head Articulation – pretty much basic were his head can turn up and down, can turn to 360 degress and supported by double ball joints.
Waist articulations – The figure has a very limited articulation due to its body design like on the image below — highlighted in red square shaped, the belt design somehow blocks the entire waist from extending its waist articulation further, the same goes with his back.
Leg articulations – his legs are supported by ball joint ( again ) together with his ankle. And due to the figures body design ( again ) limits the entire legs from doing split poses ( in red square ).
The only spare hand that came with the figure.. Bandai could have added J’s signature ” J finger ” hands.. 😦
Posing Time..! 😀

Details: 10/10 – got problems with that punk?!
Articulation: 8/10 – could have been better but what can we expect from a S.I.C. release way back in 2004-2005?
Final Words: Its worth it for an old release, pretty much pricey not to mention the number of stuffs it comes with but, if you are a S.I.C. collector, plain toy collector or just a fan of the franchise I highly recommend this figure.
