[MOD] S.I.C. vol 35 Kamen Rider Blade

Kamen Rider Blade series is probably one of my favorite S.I.C. release because of its detail and dope sculpts but also one of the series under the S.I.C. line that I hate most (Hibiki, Ryuki and Faiz too) due to its fragile joints that breaks easily. Anyway, I’ve always liked the vibrant red on KR Blade’s compound eyes and thought it would be great if the normal KR Blade has the same unlike the dark red compound eye it comes with so I experimented and did this mod.


On the left is a broken ‘extra’ piece of KR Blade’s Jack form and on the right side is the normal KR Blade and as you can see both figures has different peg holes on where the compound eyes are being connected, for the KR B-jack form its on the lower center while the normal KR B is on the upper center so I had to make a hole on where I can attach the compound eyes on KR-B.


I don’t own a drill-bit so I used a small screw driver and just tried to make a small hole first and after I switched to a bit more thicker screw driver to make a hole enough for the peg to fit accordingly.


So the first phase is done, and here is the look so far below.


Above is a comparison between 2 normal KR Blades, on the left is the modified with jack form’s compound eyes while we have the un-modified normal/original KR Blade on the right. 

Somehow I am not satisfied with the change I wanted to see so I purchased a Gundam Marker GM05-200 to make that final modification I needed for this figure.


As you can see, the area of the eyes for this figure is blue and hollow at the same time which gives a dark color scheme on the compound eyes even if you change it and thats where the Gundam Marker will come in to play to make that area a bit more lighter and reflective in color that will give a vibrant look on its compound eyes.


And now everything went well according to my plans (bwahahaha!).

Anyone may come up with different ways on how to do this but as for me I am very satisifed with the end result of this mod and maybe I’ll keep that gold detail in between of his compund eyes since it somehow compensates with that gold lining on his cheeks, shoulder pads and bracers.
