So… more Crow! This time we have the S. H. Figuarts version, so not much assembly here!
He’s noticeably darker than all the other Silver Crow figures I have. His wings are set into a transparent layer of plastic though, which can give them a “floating plate” look from certain angles. I really dig this effect.
Close-up of one of those wings:
Here you can see the shininess from the plastic coat on the wing. Also you can see the joint mechanism – this articulates well, and is definitely one of the strengths of this figure.
Here you can see the “floating plate” look. Yeah, I didn’t do good in posing this for the photo shoot… his hand is looking a bit broken :P. The details on his arms are good, and he looks streamlined from the side. No complaints here.
Here we can see the “charged” arm piece. Looks OK from this distance, but looks a bit “cheapy” close-up. He has a hand replacement for the “full” blast, but I wasn’t a big fan of that, so have left his “chopping” hand on.
Back details are OK. Nothing much to comment on here. Stand goes in firmly, and holds him well.
Close-up of the arm blast:
A little bit messy in the middle, and the blue semintranslucent stuff looks a bit iffy.
“Charged” arm on the other side:
Grasping hand looks good, and this forearm looks better than the other imo. But I’m a sucker for the charge effect.
Overall, I like him, but wish he were paler like the other figures. His midriff looks a little odd-shaped, and could’ve done with better matching in the sculpt with the other bits, but suspect this may’ve been done to assist with articulation. If I could have his wings on another Silver Crow, I’d really like that. If you like his appearance, I can recommend this figure, but I don’t think his overall look is nicer than the others.
