It was like 5 years ago when I got the S.I.C. volume 38 (whitebox below) and from that day on that I had it I told myself will keep it mint-in-box until I get my hands on the volume 11 (box above) but that time I was also into other figures under this line and it’s spin offs not to mention I started collecting other action figures from different toy lines.. It took me a while before I decided to start hunting for this S.I.C. Volume 11 and now that I have them both its time to free them in their packaging and start taking photos of ’em.. And if time permits may do a review of them tough there may have been quite a few that had been done but will just do it for the reason that I want to..
Here is another review for a figure that is almost a decade old release, I had to pick this one up because Continue reading
Here is my take on a figure that was recently released by Bandai a few months back. This is a well improved figure under the notorious S.I.C. Kamen Rider Blade line which Continue reading
Here is my review of Bandai’s Toe Hero Net Limited Figure Masked Rider G3 Mild.
In my perspective, knowing how the armor swap works not only for this figure but including those from volumes of S.I.C. Den O, Kabuto, Kuuga (Decade ver) and Decade only proves that Bandai can pull this kind of concept without sacrificing the materials being used. And I am referring to how consistently solid the based bodies are still even without those chogokin stuff with a well balanced articulation points compared with what we are having nowadays that all sculpt and articulation but the materials feels…. errr.. cheap?
Yes, this release and the volume 39 G3/G4X set may still have chances to have loose knees and other joints that you may need a tamashii stand/figure stand but hey, this ‘maybe’ a work in progress back then and this concept ‘may’ have started and revolutionized the double hinge joints that we are now seeing with the current releases.
I find this figure along with what they did to volume 38-39 an evolution, rising from the graves of the…. whatever stuff they did and put on the Hibiki, Faiz, Blade, Ryuki line that had gave us great grievance on our bleeding wallet with their market value nowadays at the same time broke our hearts with their fragile parts and joints.
Not entirelyyyyyyyyyyyy disappointed with their current lines starting from W and what has followed with a multi changer scheme, for whatever reasons Bandai have done with what we have right now, might as well go with the flow. Afterall, I really love the S.I.C. line and it’s spin offs and whatever Bandai may throw at us… I’d just deal with it.
Just my two cents….. as a S.I.C. collector.
