Stockpile Sunday Review: S.H.Figuarts – Shocker Rider (Showa)
S.H.Figuarts – Shocker Rider (Showa)
Toei Hero Net Exclusive – September, 2012 – ¥3,360
The Shocker Riders were a group of Shocker controlled warriors who looked similar to Kamen Rider 1 and 2 back in the original show. Unlike “The Next” film, the Shocker Riders in the original show all had different color scarves. This release of the Shocker Rider from the Showa Era was released as a Toei Hero Net Exclusive in Sepetember, 2012 for ¥3,360 before fees. As stated, this release comes with multiple scarves to emulate the multiple Shocker Riders in the show. The available colors are yellow (default), blue, white, pink, green, and purple. Unfortunately only the default yellow color has the “action” effect scarf, the other colors are the relaxed position. He also includes seven additional hands and a briefcase. Shocker Rider is a nice figure overall, but just isn’t worth the price when Ichigo, Nigo, and Sakurajima Ichigo are all retail releases that go for pretty cheap. If you love the original show, or just love the mold, then he might be worth it, but unless you want him super bad, he’s probably not worth the price.
