The Hand is the stand of Okuyasu Nijimura, one of Josuke’s friends in JJBA part IV: Diamond is Not Crash. Rivaling in Strength to Josuke’s Crazy Diamond, The hand is a very powerful Stand. The Hand has the ability to eliminate space between objects catching the opponent off guard and bringing them closer for follow up attacks. Okuyasu can also use this ability to “teleport” short distances.
articulation - The Hand has the typical articulation that the other stands in the SAS line have. double jointed elbows and knees, waist and ab crunch, two different neck joints, bicep and thigh swivel and writs and ankle movement.
paint - The Hand is mostly pearlescent white with metallic blue along the shoulder pads, middle torso and on the forearms and legs. It has very smooth paint apps with a great contrast of colors. Since Okuyasu’s theme is currency, there are hints of gold throughout the figure. The Hand figure is probably one of the cleanest paint apps in part IV.
detail and sculpt -
The hand appears as a humanoid figure in yellow and black attire similar to football pads. Though it has several spikes jutting from them, A towel-like object drapes over its shoulders with a $ symbol on one end and a ¥ symbol on the other - corresponding with Okuyasu’s own fashion theme of currency symbols. It seems to have some type of binder or front-open helmet on the outside of its headlight-shaped eyes, and its right hand has spiderweb-like lines on the inside.
accessories - The Hand comes with: 7 total hands, stand and japanese word bubble.
price - the hand originally came out in late 2010 for $40-$50. I’ve had him for almost a year now but i had to buy him for almost twice the price. hopefully we will see a rerelease of this figure in the future.
Overall, The Hand is a great figure! Definitely a fun figure, with hours of play and my favorite stand in JJBA part IV. I can’t count the number of times i’ve taken it out for pics. The figure is so amazing! It is a must have along with Okuyasu to have one of the coolest characters in Diamond is not Crash! I would’ve liked to see a ‘space elimination’ effect part since there wasn’t very many accessories that came with it.
