I personally don't mind the accessory packs being separate, although the main figure should come with more. I mean... Kamen Rider Fourze's whole thing is the modules, and those came in, what, separate sets of 4-5 switches? When there's 40+?

Recently the Fourze modules went on sale at HLJ for like 150-300y each: it would have basically just been cost of shipping to buy them all. I was about to SAL them all, but I decided hell, I'm never going to take all that plastic junk out. And I am a HUGE fan of Fourze.

You can keep your Fourze. Just let me have all my W Figuarts...

*still needs CycloneMetal, CycloneTrigger, HeatJoker, HeatMetal, HeatTrigger, LunaJoker, LunaMetal, LunaTrigger, CycloneJokerXtreme, CycloneAccelXtreme, CycloneCyclone, JokerJoker, and Joker*

Okay, I've still got a ways to go... ^^;

Reading this makes me sad that I can't get a Kamen Rider figure.

On the matter of the figure at hand though, I've had it for over a month or so before the review was written. He's actually pretty neat, and I even got both accessory pack on the same day.

Why can't you get a Kamen Rider figuart? Blufin sells them in the US as long as they're not a web exclusive (of which yes, I do have a web exclusive Rider). Or there's Mandarake, which generally has good prices on figuarts (that's where I got said web exclusive, plus my Gokai Yellow).

SHF Luigi is actually up for pre-order now. He comes with the stuff Mario didn't (stand, extra hands) along with a red pipe accessory set. Nendoroid Mario has just been announced at Wonder Festival and should be up for order soon. Plus Jakks Pacific is also making articulated Nintendo figures including Yoshi and a big Bowser (and Mario, Link, and Donkey Kong) that may look good with the SHF Mario and Luigi.

I live in Canada, and they never show up where I live.

Well, Amazon.ca has a good showing there. Any decently sized convention likely would also have representation, though if Blufin themselves aren't there, the prices will likely be higher.
