As if said in my previous reviews of the kits in this series, I grew up in the 60's and remember the Batman television series. So I'm very impressed with the kits from this show, and The Riddler is now exception. Again the likeness to Frank Gorshin, who played The Riddler is dead on. The kit is very well engineered, and fit together with no problems. The options are 2 different heads: with or without his hat. His right hand can be open or holding his cane. His left hand can be open or holding his hat. And his mask can be left off on on. I chose to use the head with his hat because I thought it might be hard to get the hat to stick to his hand. I also added the cane, and left the mask off. To use the mask I would have had to take a 50 mile round trip to get the pale lavender paint called for in the instructions, and I desided it wasn't worth the trip. But I would only recommend this kit for someone with a lot of patience, and that is the decals. You have a green question mark decal for the hat, a jeweled decal for his tie, and over 100 black decals for his clothes. I used the Microscale decal system for the decals. I used the Micro Set solution to get the decals to adhere, Micro Sol to get the decals to soften to set in the irregular surfaces, and Micro Flat to remove the gloss on the decals. It took me over a week to add all the decals, but it is worth the time and effort. So now the only bad thing is having to wait for The Joker kit to be released.
