^Yeah, I don't know if I really trust Bandai's choices of characters, at least out of the gate. However, once SH Figuarts had shown that it could sell the Heisei Kamen Riders it finally started really getting into the Showa Riders. If they aren't going to be doing the entire Heisei (think of the Biollante), then I see them doing it this way. Once they can feel confident that they can move these using, what on paper looks like it would be the most recognizable, design then they'll get into some of the more "obscure" suits. However, I'm wondering how they'll handle some of the Showa figs that were released by Revoltech. Will they make Monsterarts of those figs? If not, that would be a pretty glaring hole in the line. No Baragon, no Anguirus, no Gigan...with how popular those characters are on both sides of the ocean, I can't see Bandai resisting the opportunity to release them if this series really ramps up.
As much as some of the designs bug me, I really wouldn't mind seeing a whole wave devoted to all the Final Wars kaiju. Most of the designs would work well in this format and who wouldn't want a new King Seesar, a Manda, hell a Kamakaris or the new Gigan in a poseable form. If they're all sculpted by Sakai-San, all the better.
