S.H. Figuarts Zangetsu Shin Melon Energy Arms...S.H. Figuarts Zangetsu Shin Melon Energy Arms...

MindsEdgeMindsEdge4 jaar geledenReview
Hey there everyone, finally back with a brand new review!

With the threat of human extinction growing ever nearer, the head of the Yggdrasil corporation, Takatora Kureshima, becomes the first to equip an experimental Driver, giving birth to an incredibly potent new form.
Get pumped as I take a look at S.H. Figuarts...

Kamen Rider
Zangetsu Shin
Melon Energy Arms

The first Rider to receive his secondary form in the Gaim line, Zangetsu Shin arrives in typical Exclusive Figuarts fashion, within a detailed, windowless box that houses within a plastic tray for containing the figure and all of his accessories.

Like previous figures in the Gaim line, Zangetsu Shin is fully plastic, and makes use of the plethora of S.H. Figuarts joints including the welcome ankle rockers that were previously seen in the Fourze line.

The detailing and colors on Zangetsu Shin are amazing, and really do an excellent job of bringing the stern businessman to life in all his glory.

When it comes to accessories, Zangetsu Shin is sports quite a decent selection. Included are four pairs of hands; Two fists, two gripping hands, two more gripping/drawing hands with the pointer finger lifted, two splayed open hands, and lastly, a gripping hand for activating the Genesis Driver.

Two versions of Zangetsu Shin's primary weapon, the Sonic Arrow, are included. A normal version that is used mainly for slicing and dicing his foes.

The second has the string drawn back, to recreate the setup to the powerful energy arrows attacks and finishers that Zangetsu Shin is known for.

Lastly, like all the other Riders in the Gaim line, Zangetsu Shin comes with two versions of his Melon Energy Lockseed, the first in Locked mode and the second in Open mode.

The details on these tiny accessories are truly amazing, and are quite intricate for the size of them. As I've said before, be careful, since these things are quite small and you could easily loose them!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/MindsEdge1424982030.jpeg

As a whole, the Gaim Figuarts line continues to amaze, and Zangetsu Shin sets the bar high for the figures to come.

The beautiful clear plastic orange used for his armor and visor is striking, and the small bubble details emulate the condensation we see in the show's suits quite well.

He still has the somewhat pearl/cream white as normal Zangetsu, but it's barely noticeable when you get him in hand.

In all honestly I can find very little fault with Zangetsu Shin, there is of course some limitation at his right shoulder, but that's simply by design.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/MindsEdge1424982106.jpeg

All in all, Zangetsu Shin is another stellar release in the Gaim S.H. Figuarts line. The juiced up Rider is possibly one of the best looking figures to have come out so far, and just exudes coolness.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/MindsEdge1424982028.jpeg

The molding on these figures is some of the most detailed we have ever had in the Figuarts line, and I look forward to the remaining releases and whatever awaits us in the future.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/MindsEdge1424982108.jpeg

I absolutely can't help but recommend Zangetsu Shin, his unique design and strong figure base make him one of the best Gaim Figuarts there is, and he's easily my favorite thus far.

As always, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to read over my review, I certainly hope that it was helpful, and gave you the information you needed to decide whether or not to pick up this wounded defender of Humanity.

Well that's just it, this is Takatora to me and no one else, hence why you don't see regular Zangetsu in the review. :)

Anyways Zangetsu shin is probably my favourite figure of the year so far! I can't wait for the other energy rider!

As someone with no knowledge of or interest in Kamen Rider I must say the detail on this figure is pretty impressive!
