Kamen Rider Agito Ground Form


8 comments posted

I got a few of these: Den-O Sword form, Blade and Garen. I like them but the fact that they were on clearance worries me. Are these particularly bad examples of the line or just unpopular or overproduced? Since you mentioned haveing several, do you think the line overall is improveing with time or stagnating?

I'm considering getting rid of my S.H. Figuarts and venting my rider-lust on these smaller, cheaper representations. I love figuarts, but they cost a lot and in a competition with Super Robot Chogokin... well, giant robots ARE my first love. A collector on a budget needs to make the hard choices, no matter how many lines he may like.

I would say that the line

I would say that the line seems to be getting better as time goes on. Agito has better double jointed elbows and improved shoulderpads over say, the Blade figures. I think that the ones you have are all pretty good. The Blade ones have some limited shoulders, but other than that they are very solid I think.

The reason that they may have been on clearance is that these figures are not show accurate and very stylized, something that I love, but is not to everyone's tastes. This is not one of Bandai's more popular lines like Figuarts or Robot Damashii, so they produce them a bit more slowly and they don't sell out nearly as fast.

I have to admit that when I messed with my first Kiwami Tamashii, I also thought about collecting these instead of Figuarts. Not that Figuarts aren't great, but these are just such a great value for their pricepoint! I really hope we get more Heisei main riders like a Kabuto, W or Decade. That would make me very excited. Although a Kaixa and Side Basha are still pretty awesome.

I agree!

I've seen the larger SIC Kabuto and he is badass. The rest of the Kabuto gang would be equally cool.

SIC KT OOO's? I can dream too, right?

Thanks for the advice and opinions, I will take your words into consideration as I figure out my next move!

Hi, I've been following CollectionDX for some time now, but this is the first time I feel like commenting, so sorry if anything's worng.

About the review, thanks for it! Sometime ago I was after the "Full" S.I.C version of Agito (the one that comes with Machine Tornador), but HLJ's stock ended before I could do anything, so I waited.

Last month I saw at Amiami the S.I.C. Kiwamii Tamashii Machine Tornador for pre-order and judging by the low pricee of the bike and Agito I decided to get both. I'm still waiting for it to arrive, but I confess I was a little worried about the size. I'm happy to hear so well of the figure! Thanks again!

About the line, I think it's a great one. Though I own just S.I.C. Shadow Moon I've always liked the redesigns of S.I.C.s, specially for the older Riders, I mean, they get closer to what they really are: monsters like the ones they fight, but that fight for justice.

Nothing wrong with comments

Nothing wrong with comments my good sir. Glad to hear I posted something to get you commenting in the first place!

I have not preordered the Machine Tornader myself, but I do plan on getting my hands on it in the near future. A Kamen Rider needs his rider after all.

I also love the more monstrous designs of the SIC Kamen Riders. The ones I always bring up in point are the Black RX, and the original SIC Kuuga. That thing is so spindly and nasty looking, I absolutely love it!

Awesome! I do so love Kiwami Tamashii's! I can't decide if I want to get this figure or wait for Trinity form...
