Hero Review
The nameless Hero sports 18 points of articulation and comes with the ever-useful display stand, one extra arm with open hands for holding his sword and of course, the basic sword which is nifty sheathed upon opening the box.

I never played Dragon Quest VIII so I do not know how to pose Hero. I looked for shots of him in the internet and to my pet peeves, the figure is indeed in a sword-posing disadvantage. The figure does not come with another extra hand so that Hero can wield his Bastard Sword just like in artworks. When I said \"Bastard Sword,\" I am NOT swearing. Bastard Sword, FYI, is a sword which can be wielded with either two or one hands. Obviously, Hero can look much more battle-ready if he could fully wield his sword.

Putting the disadvantage with Bastard sword poses aside, the figure paid careful attention to Hero\'s clothes and even thoughtfully including his pet mouse in his pocket. The intricacy could really give Akira Toriyama or any Dragon Quest VIII fan a pat on the back after they\'ve been disappointed with the things being mentioned in the above paragraph.

His head in a B-Bandanna?! We could\'ve hoped for an interchangeable head depicting the Super Saiyan-like in-game form of Hero.

The good:
- Intricate figure sculpting, faithful to Toriyama-san\'s design.
- Weapon in sheath, now that\'s a really unique touch to the Play Arts line. It was followed by Kadaj of FF7-AC series 2.
- Display Stand included to stabilize Hero in some action poses, but probably would not be needed as Hero can balance in most poses.

The bad:
- Too small, not even in scale with the Final Fantasy figures.
- The Bastard Sword posing disadvantage (explained above).
