Not enough with my latest post about RAH DX Kamen Rider Kabuto Ver.2.0, it is time for the first Kamen Rider review. This is S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Shin Ichigo or Kamen Rider No. 1, The first Kamen Rider character featured in Japanese tokusatsu. Takeshi Hongo, who was a biochemistry college student with an IQ of 600 at Jounan University. He really love and enjoyed riding motorcycles and want to participate for the Grand Prix. While practicing, he was kidnapped by the terrorist organization Shocker and modify him into a cyborg before with brain washing. After all, Hongo tried to escaped and fight back the shocker with his new power, as Kamen Rider.
The S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Shin Ichigo comes with an old design, of course it is the first appearence from Kamen Rider No. 1. It is something like the memorial rider has come back alive and turn him out into the form of action figures. With his single rotating belt and his neck scarf, Ichigo sure an awesome rider though it was an old one. The design of the helmet with red clear part in the eyes turn it very well.
You can see the body is kind like of something soothing texture with comparatively simple design and it is quite awesome. The arms and legs design are pretty flashy though his gloves and boots looks really nice with bright silver color. The leg is not made from die-cast, but was not a ground like a ball joint.
The best part that you can go is doing Rider Kick pose with effect part attached on his foot included in this S.H.Figuarts. You can put the effect part with another S.H.F line such as S.H.F Kamen Rider OOO TaToBa Combo and S.H.F Kamen Rider Faiz Blaster Form. The Rider Kick pose can be managed with some help from stand base to make it flowing in the sky. To give a real looks, it also features the additional scarf with waving in the wind style with high detail. It is really exciting since that you can pose as many as you like with high durability and perfect articulation.
S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Shin Ichigo comes with interchangeable hand parts, additional scarf, effect parts for Rider Kick!, and sword as the weapon accessories. The action figure is made from ABS, PVC, and POM composite materials which give him enhanced detail and superior articulation. It will be more perfect with the release of his partner S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Shin Nigo. Better to wait for it, for now you can set you pre order now on this product. Images taken from hacchaka.
