My first RAH

solluxcaptorsolluxcaptorIl y a 2 ansLoot
Finally my EMS experience from hell is over... took them about two weeks of keeping it hostage and then eventually a LOT of phone calls to 5 different places until they finally gave me instructions and the code to pay for the ridiculously extortionate fee online... (£15 for handling? Are you kidding me? They didn't even deliver a slip to tell me how to pay! I had to chase it up myself!)

And I finally got my first RAH! He's absolutely beautiful, this won't be a proper review but I will go over some of his features.

Also my question is, is there anywhere I can get accessories in the right scale for RAH? Like 1/6 scale? I really want to get a nice looking chair for him to sit on so he can live a lovely quiet life with me <3

Firstly, I'll introduce the character for those who don't know. I bought the RAH version of Kira Yoshikage from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable (Spoilers in the wiki article, here's his picture if you want to see it individually) In the series he's typically portrayed with blonde hair, which I would have preferred to see on the figure since I think it fits his character best... (Bright purple hair on a guy who's goal in life is to not stand out? I know bright colour variations are normal for Jojo but it doesn't fit his character well in my opinion) but I do think it looks gorgeous regardless of how well it fits so that's fine with me.

Here's how the box arrived:

It's quite simple but impressive looking! You can't really tell but this box is VERY large. It's hard for me to find a place to put it...

Inside of the box is just as beautifully displayed:

It opens with a magnet to keep the window shut which nice since it should keep the box in good condition as it won't open itself up. Inside it displays Kira and his accessories in a window, and shows some pictures of the figure and props on the side too. There's actually a 'surprise' prop that wasn't included in the photos... I'll talk about that later.

Firstly, you get two of his different head styles (I think you get the 'awakened' version with the Killer Queen RAH?) and WOW these are some beautiful face sculpts. I'm completely in awe of how gorgeous they are. I'm glad they made Kira look as beautiful as he is in the manga.

You get some interchangeable hands too and wow, the details on these are just gorgeous. I'm a little bit in love, Kira definitely has some beautiful hands of his own too...

He also comes with three extra ties alongside the one he's already wearing! So you can keep his style fresh while he lives a quiet life in your home. These are sooo tiny, I worry about how difficult it will be to put them on if I try to change it.

Now for the 'surprise' prop. This REALLY caught me off guard and I felt like it was a really clever thing.
So I picked up the sandwich bag to admire it and I felt that it wasn't empty... I noticed that you could open it up, so I took a peek inside to see if I was imagining things or what it could be... I couldn't believe it when I looked inside and it was actually a decapitated hand! I freaked out about this for a LONG time afterwards and since it wasn't shown on the box I was really caught off guard by this lovely surprise. Too fitting , well played RAH.
(Spoilers for those who want to understand why this is so well played but haven't read the series: Voir le spoilerCacher le spoilerKira is basically a serial killer with a hand fetish to put it simply, he murders female victims and takes their hand to be his 'girlfriend' until it starts to decay and he gets a new one. The first scene where you meet him in the manga involves him hiding his 'girlfriend' in this sandwich bag, someone else taking it by mistake thinking it was their sandwich, him trying to track it down and eventually the other person opening it and getting a big surprise... just like I did.)

The hand is kinda gory and gross so I'm gonna hide a closeup photo of it under this spoiler for people who don't like gore:

Really impressively done though, it actually looks quite realistic. Even seems to have a bit of moisture to it so it looks extra gory.

Here's some photos I took of him! Such a perfect model. I want to take some with his other head next but right now I'm a little scared to change it ><

Look at those perfectly sculpted cheekbones *___*

He really has such a beautiful face sculpt and all the small details like the parts on his belt are amazing!

Holding Kira's hand... I wonder if I can be his next 'girlfriend' (´・ω・`)


I actually took about 300 photos but those are all I'll post for now. He's just too beautiful and photogenic to resist photographing! Certainly going to feature in many more photographs of mine.

This was my most expensive figure purchase and I had to do a lot of waiting and battling with customs to get it... but it was 100% worth it! I'll definitely be buying more in the RAH series and hopefully I can get ITEM #21312 next but he's really hard to get ahold of ;_;

I hope this article was enjoyable as I had a lot of fun writing it and taking the photos, also I would really appreciate it anyone can tell me where I can get 1/6 sized furniture suitable for RAH!

witchitch (Il y a 2 ans) #3199931I'm glad to hear that they ship nicely! That's always something I worry about when buying from new places. I didn't know that about the killer queen RAH, I've always seen him up on sites for a really high price but that's a bummer they seem to have paint defects!!! Also yeah no problem about the friend request!!! c:
Yep I was totally worried until he arrived incase they didn't pack him well ><;; But thankfully they did!! The box was lined with like those air packets all the way around and then the figure was wrapped in bubble wrap.
Yeah sadly at least all the ones I've seen have some paint defects, it makes me feel nervous about getting one and considering the price it seems like I never will ;~; I can dream!
Thanks for accepting my friend request :D I look forward to seeing RAH Dio pictures!

Edit: I just noticed you ordered the shadow Dio too. Holy crap, all of my envy.

solluxcaptor (Il y a 2 ans) #3198725Hopefully I can save up for him next! <3 It might take a while since he costs a lot though ;_; Ohhh I used Solaris Japan for Kira too! :D I was scared he'd get damaged but they shipped him really nicely. I really want to collect the Jojo RAHs too, especially Dio though. I've been trying to look for Killer Queen too but he's always reaally expensive and damaged >< I think maybe the product was defective because literally every single one I've found sold online has some kind of damage or issue to the paint :/
May I add you since it seems we have a lot in common? :D

The-Hurricane (Il y a 2 ans) #3199244After being on that wiki for a few minutes I feel like Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is a mix between Gay Muscle Bara, 80's and 90's music references, and Shounen tropes. What is with this show? XD I looked up Killer Queen out of curiousity and I was like "He looks like he belongs in a bara BDSM anthology!" I'm...so, so curious about this series now. I feel like I'm going to need to watch it, if only to try and understand it! Yeah I have no idea how they thought that Killer Queen would look intimidating. He looks like a kitty! T____T
You're actually completely right with all of that, it doesn't take itself too seriously and it has a bunch of references :P It's a super fun series, but also with a great story and characters! I really recommend it if you have the time and feel interested :D The anime is a pretty good intro, it doesn't cover nearly as much as the manga but it's easier to get into as a starting point IMHO. If you watch the 2012 first series it covers part 1 and part 2 very well in just 26 episodes. Kira/Killer Queen aren't in the series until part 4 which hasn't been covered in the anime yet (anime is part 1-3) but I'm hoping for an adaptation announcement!
You're right, Killer Queen does have a BDSM look ahaha but still super cute! He's my favourite stand in Jojo :P

solluxcaptor (Il y a 2 ans) #3199225Thank you! I'm actually really liking the black colour like I said since it'll make his outfit stand out instead of blending in :D That's Killer Queen, his stand which is sorta like a spiritual entity with powers that's tied to a stand user, kinda hard to explain (Jojo wiki explains it nicely if you really do care to know jojo.wikia.com/... ) ^^; But that's Kira's stand. Technically the stand of the villain making it part of the villain team so maybe a little off :P But I agree that Killer Queen is super cute!! He's supposed to be intimidating but I can't find him anything but cute with that cat face :P

The-Hurricane (Il y a 2 ans) #3199206Oh my god that's awesome. :D Yeah that chair will fit really well! If you want you can always paint it purple as well if you're looking to recreate that sort of look. :3 (What is the cat looking dude in the background? He's kind of cute, like he looks like he belongs on a hero team or something but knowing how odd this anime is I'm betting I'm waaaaaay off! XD)

solluxcaptor (Il y a 2 ans) #3199011By the way, sorry for messaging you so much about this but I realised why I like the armchair for him so much! It reminds me of this fanart 41.media.tumblr... (my phone wallpaper) except I think the black colour is best because he will stand out more ^^ So it's perfect! You managed to pick out something perfect without knowing the character well :D

solluxcaptor (Il y a 2 ans) #3198925Thank you sooo much, you've been so helpful! That's perfect then, I really like the first one but this lounge chair is so nice too! I'll look around at the rest of their range before making a decision but I think I'll definitely get one of these now ^^ I'll definitely take photos too! If you like, I can add you and I'll let you know when I take some. (I might not be able to order the chair for a week or so because I need to cut back on purchases right now but definitely in the future)

The-Hurricane (Il y a 2 ans) #3198918That's from CM Toys, and their bodies are pretty comparable to Hot Toys or Sideshow, so yeah, that would fit just fine if you're interested in it! There are some other models that look sort of comparable as well, just so you're making an informed decision:
www.ebay.com/it... I don't know if he's the type to lounge or not, but this could make for some dramatic posing options.
They also have much more utilitarian options like folding chairs and lawn chairs, office chairs, sodas, all that good stuff. :)
But yeah, to answer your question definitively, this chair should be a fine fit for him! You're very welcome for helping! If you end up getting the chair I would love to see pictures of him in it! :D
