Sic Vol52 Kamen Rider Kabuto Review

I think its quite apparent that my favourite Kamen Rider series is Kabuto. I picked up the SIC Kabuto today (Shock horror Kenny its got metal pieces!!) from Hobby Dream. Its an amazing figure it is no wonder that Chogokin can stay in the action figure business for so long. A Chogokin is at the pinnacle it'd make any one think twice before playing with it although it is very articulate.

First off the details are stunning. Alot of the parts and minor details were also hand painted.

This figure also has many neat inclusions like many pairs of hands and most importantly the Hyper Armour parts.

But of course to finish it off... Hyper Clock Up!

Chogokin already put so much into the detail of this figure I was wondering why they wouldnt provide an extra set of red metallic knee caps to remain true to the series. Another minor but important detail being omitted is that the Perfect Zecter (the sword) didn't have the Drake, The Bee and Scorpion Zecters as attachments to create the weapon's final form.

The kit also came with a 1:1 scale  Kabuto Zecter (The thing that enables Tendou Souji to transform into Kamen Rider Kabuto) so I decided to post a rather geeky photo!
