DefoReal Kamen Rider Joker Figure Announced
Premium Bandai announced their second DefoReal figure release, the DefoReal Kamen Rider Joker from Kamen Rider W.
Shotaro transforms into Kamen Rider Joker by utilizing a Joker Memory into the Lost Driver. His appearance is identical to that of Kamen Rider Double. Shotaro uses the T2 Joker Memory when accessing this form for the first time, being able to defeat both the Heat Dopant and the Metal Dopant with relative ease despite having difficulty as Double. The Lost Driver was acquired when Kamen Rider Skull’s ghost aided Shotaro.
The DefoReal figure line highlights the concept of “deformed x real”. The joker memory is loaded into the maximum slot on the waist, and it is shaped by posing with a deadly Rider Punch. The details of each part are replicated in the body of about 2.5 heads with a total height of about 13 cm. Furthermore, the black color of the whole body is painted with a matte texture, which contrasts with the purple metallic feeling of each part. A clear material is used for the compound eye part, and it emits light by using the attached pedestal. Two LR44 button batteries (sold separately) are required. The set includes: the Kamen Rider Joker figure, a pedestal, and an instruction manual. Everything is made of PVC and MBS.
The DefoReal Kamen Rider Joker figure from Kamen Rider W will go for 6,600 Yen (tax included) and is scheduled for shipment in February 2021. Preorders are being accepted today.
