MOVIE REALIZATION Kamen Rider 1,2 (Kamen Rider THE FIRST)

MOVIE REALIZATION Kamen Rider 1,2 (Kamen Rider THE FIRST)

Both Ichigo and Nigo are armed with 3 pairs of poseable hands, 2 scarves and a pair of antennas each. The difference between the sets are the paint apps and for the scarves, Ichigo have torn and holed mold into these while Nigo's have a smoother and brighter shade of red. I like the fact that the attention to detail for the props are top notch - even the scorch marks and the gradient dark lines are there. I adore the Rider belt with the plastic jewel in the middle...molto bene.

If you have your SHF the Next toys, you are probably familiar with the battle scarred marks on Ichigo's helmet. The difference is that the hair at the back of the helmet is not present on the SICs while the SHF version is visible.

Nigo however looks closer to Shin Ichigo especially the paint apps on the helmet. Another detail to note is that Nigo has a worn down Shocker logo. I'm not sure if this is deliberate or a quality issue. I tried to scratch it with my fingers but it doesn't come off easily, so I guess it is.

The joints should be familiar for these 30 plus articulation point figures. There are a few limitations though. First with the scarf laying down on the chest provides limitation on the head movement. The flowing scarf is better.

Second is the leg articulation. This bumps on the belt too much that you can only lift the leg 30 degrees sideways. The engineering was made on SICs infancy so expect that the joint on the crotch area is not as refined and poseable as today's offerings. So as the feet, these don't have a hinge at a toe so you'll feel a bit awkward in certain poses. As for the rest, they are fine on my standards.

The details for each figure are impeccable and what is demanded from SICs. Although a lot of Kamen Rider collectors shy away from the deformity of most Kamen Rider SIC figures, this set is in between polished and rugged, a combination that may lure more consumers to SICs.
