Stockpile Sunday Review: S.H.Figuarts – Kamen Rider OOO Super TaToBa Combo
S.H.Figuarts – Kamen Rider OOO Super TaToBa Combo
Tamashii Web Exclusive – May, 2012 – ¥3,150
After the release of Rocket States, Fourze’s exclusive form from Movie War Megamax was released, Kamen Rider OOO’s followed the same month. This was released in May of 2012 for ¥3,150 before fees. Kamen Rider OOO received an upgrade from the future in the form of the Super Taka, Super Tora, and Super Batta O-Medals that transform him into Super TaToBa Combo. Super TaToBa is a new combo using the Taka Brave head, along with an upgraded Tora Body and Batta Legs. The unique thing about him is that unlike the other OOO Combos having a base, Super TaToBa uses the red, yellow, and green colors to their fullest. While looking totally unique, he shares TaToBa’s worse trait: the legs. His legs (and his shoulders for that matter) are incredibly loose. This makes posing him rather difficult and tedious. Your milage may vary when it comes to the tightness of his joints. Super TTB comes with two Super Tora Claws and five additional hands. Unfortunately he doesn’t come with the beautiful wings that were included in the TaJaDol Effect Parts Set or OOO TakaJaBa, despite being seen with them throughout most of his debut. While I love how unique this suit is, the figure unfortunately suffers from a problem that plagued most of the OOO releases: horrible QC. If you absolutely love the form, then go for it. Otherwise, Rocket States and Nadeshiko are both better Megamax releases. Now where is Aqua and Poseidon? Seriously. There’s not even prototypes. I’m sad.
