Review by JoshB
Bijinda was originally released in Japan as part of the Super
Imaginative Chogokin (SIC) line.
She comes from the series Kikaider,
a modern reworking of the classic Tokusatsu (live-action) show.
Bijinda is part of the Bandai Studioworks line, a highly
detailed and exquisitely packaged series aimed at collectors. The box features double fold-out covers with Velcro. You could almost enjoy this
figure the same without ever taking it out.
The 7-inch figure features limited articulation, but an insane amount
of detail. It is one of the best sculpts I have ever seen. There is a
small amount of metal in the figure, just enough for Bandai to
slap the chogokin label on it. It has tons of features, including:
- Chest opens up to reveal a removeable hydrogen bomb
- Evil cat
- Removeable knife
- Interchangeable hand
