Review by JoshB
Barom-1 comes from the show Chôjin Baromu-1超人バロム１ (Superman Barom-1), a Tokusatsu show that aired in 1972 and only lasted 35 episodes. The story tells of two children Kentaro and Takeshi, who are given the power to transform into Barom-1. The two children use the magic of Kopuu to transform into Barom-1 to fight the evil alien Doruge.
This unremarkable figure was the first in Bandai’s Henshin Hero Series of vinyl figures. These were a low-cost line of hero figures that were sold on shelves at toy stores in the 90s.
Articulation is simple, limited to the waist and arms, but the sculpt is really nice. It’s an affordable way to get a representation of Barom-1 in your collection.
