Review: S.H.Figuarts – Kamen Rider Super-1
S.H.Figuarts – Kamen Rider Super-1
Retail Release – November, 2012 – ¥3,800
Next in our fairly random Showa line-up is none other than Super-1, the OG Space Rider that uses Switches to enable his abilities. Yep. Super-1 uses the same base molding as the previous Showa releases, so the articulation is gonna be spot on. As always, I really dig this shoulder system, and the hip system used isn’t bad at all either. Super-1’s main gimmick is activating the switches on his belt to gain new arms that give him different abilities. The blue arm is the Elek Arm, the red arm is the Power Arm, the gold arm is the Radar Arm, finally the green arms are the Thermal Arms. A set of arms comes with the figure for each type. Just pop off the arm right at the glove and switch them out, similar to Fourze’s Modules. Your milage may very when it comes to the joint, but mine are fairly difficult to remove, while the joint up near the bicep likes to pop off like no other. Also included are ten additional hands, two additional Power Arms, two additional tassels, an additional muffler, and a big ole’ sword (Lightning Sword). Overall, Super-1 has some quality problems in joint strength, but makes up for it in sculpt, paint, and stability. If you’re a fan of the suit, show, or love you some Showa, then by all means pick him up! Great addition to the collection, even with the potential flaws.
