    I have to disagree. While the Ghost Figuarts may not be as good as Drive and Gaim, the Wizard Figuarts were outright terrible.

    As bad as the Wizard Figuarts are, they're over 3 years old now. Then again, the Hamel Cane not being included with White Wizard is blasphemy.

    The Ghost figuarts are pretty much this year's Wizard figuarts.

    If you get Ghost (and Specter) into a pose you like and put them on a shelf next to your other Figuarts they fit in with no problem. The Wizard Figuarts are tiny with weirdly short torso's and Wizard's belt falls off all the time. They look downright bizarre next to other Figuarts and are actually less show accurate than the Gimmick/Budget line Wizard figures.

    Yes the Ghost Figuarts have a few rough points of articulation, but they are no where near as bad as the Wizard Figuarts.

    Don't get me wrong, they still look nice when you're not trying to fight for the articulation for certain poses. I'm sure I'm in the minority when I say that I prefer the Figuarts face sculpts even though it's not show accurate.

    I don't think anyone's trying to imply they're as bad as the Wizard Figuarts, but they are similar in that they're certainly a huge step down from the Gaim and Drive lines. Like I said before, I'm not surprised since Figuarts never had a good reputation for pulling off cloth well and Ghost's designs revolve around parkas.

    I can pretty much co-sign on all this. The Gaim and Drive lines are really excellent, some of the best Figuarts out there.

    I wonder if the parkas were made of a more rubbery material if the articulation would be better. Maybe that's something we'll see if there is ever a renewal of Ghost.

    I'm personally a huge fan of the Drive line though I'm sure it's an uncommon opinion since it has so many exclusives and recolors.

    The thing is, after taking apart Ghost and Specter, I've realized that the parkas are not hindering the waist and ab articulation. It's the mold itself and bad engineering. The parka sleeves are absolutely an issue, though. They don't look good from most angles(moreso the dynamic ones) and literally have to be fought for articulation.

    The Wizard figuarts seem to have decent articulation, and the ghost figuarts look as good as the show. Seems to be a weird switch around.

    The Wizard Figuarts actually have really good articulation. They're just show inaccurate in every way possible(except for the Phantoms and maybe Wizard Infinity) which is the opposite of the reason someone would want a Figuart to begin with. It's honestly such a shame, looking back on nit.

    The Ghost Figuarts do look good but their face sculpts have been changed since we saw them at Tamashii Nations for some reason and they're not show accurate. I prefer the Figuarts faces but it is a weird change. On the bright side I can just make customs I guess.

    I remember that the good thing about wizard figuarts was the articulation (for the time mind you, but worked perfectly). It was pretty interesting on how badly proportion the majority of the line was.

    The faces of ghost and specter..... Personally bothered me. They even messed with the buyer with the correct color on the boxes, lol.

    I watched the first two episodes. That was about all I could stomach. The show was edited by some 5 year old with ADD. The camera kept changing positions like every 4 seconds and there were a lot of pointless shots. Not to mention the characters wre completely unlikable and forgot to take their meds. One dude was running around like a chicken with his head cut off and made Shunpei look mature. The girl was watching ghosts appear right in front of her but decided to whine about how there was no such thing as ghosts because science. And then we had the spastic little shit who was supposed to be the main hero. Not to mention the amount of CGI and the rushed feeling of those episodes. I'd go to the special olympics if that is what I want to watch, but I wanted to watch a super hero show. Hell, the special olympics would be far more enjoyable because you are getting to see real heroes there over this dumbass loser.
