Depends on your budget and what aesthetics pleases you. All three line-up (SIC, SH, and SIC Kiwami) are fairly spaced apart in prices- you can pick up a Kiwami figure for $10-20, a SHF for $30-40, and SIC for $60+ so it’s not exactly comparable. From what I’ve seen, you get a lot of “figure” out of SIC figures (I like to think of them as the KR counterpart of GFF). I can’t comment on any real SICs yet because I haven’t seen nor touched one before… still waiting for my first one to come in later.
Appreciate your reply. Now I’m waiting for your S.I.C figure!
Sorry if this might be troublesome, but is it possible to make this site adapted to an iPod or iPhone? Whenever I type the URL on my iPod, it sends me to this link without any images (or blank images).
Appreciate your effort on posting your experience with Gunpla :D
Z, it’s all your fault that I’m craving for Kamen Riders! hehehe. Anyway, I’m planning to get myself a Kamen Rider W Cyclone Joker.. but which is better? the Master Grade version or the S.H. Figuarts? in terms od articulation, posability and over all details? Thanks in advance! :D
From the looks of it, the MG seems to best the SHF in every way including size… with the exception of signature poses (I don’t think you can “count up your sins” with those hands…). Not to mention it is also $10-15 more than the SHF depending on where you look. Your call though.
i just want to ask where do you buy your SHF’s?
do you buy them online? if ever you buy them online, where actually do you buy them?
I tried to buy from HLJ once, but when it reached me, the box of my SHF has already been opened (the sides of the box has been double-taped), i dont know if they opened it for security purposes or they just made a mistake and put an opened SHF box into my shipment :(
can you recommend some stores near SD, CA? thanks Z :)
The link to Gundam Guy is on my blogroll. Ebay is generally safe; depends on the seller, service is not bad. You can pay like up to $15 shipping but it would still be cheaper than some other places… if lucky. Check it out for yourself.

hmmm, I like to start my kamen rider collection, problem is, don’t know what line I’ll go for, SHF, SIC or SIC Kiwami. I love the re-imagine or organic/gothic theme of SIC, but the price make me think twice or thrice, and they also say that SIC always tend to go rare, as it is rare for that line to have re-issues, what I love is SIC Dark Kiva and Ixa set. SHF, price not on the expensive side, but the thing that I don’t like is their design inconsistency, like some have thin or anorexic limbs, some have fat or muscular, I like Shadowmoon and Black. SIC Kiwami, the problem is that limited series are release.
Can you help to decide on this one? I’ll love and appreciate your answers, thanks! ^_^ .
