Momotaros Imagin pre-contract ver

'I start the way I finish-

'I start the way I finish- at a climax!' is Momotaros' motto when he becomes Den-O Sword Form.

Den-O World, like all the others in "...Decade", is all twisted-up & contorted compared to how it's own series runs, but most of the rules are the same...

Imagin are monsters that can travel through time by using a human's precious memory against them. This way, they can travel to the past [where that memory originates from] and destroy the world. Den-O uses a special mind-reading card to determine the exact point where the memory takes place, and uses the DenLiner train to travel to the past & stop them.

Momotaros is one of four (okay, six) Imagin that choose not to fight against humans, and instead bond with the human who is chosen to use the Den-O powers. (When Decade was in this World, the main Kamen Rider character was nowhere to be seen, so Momotaros instead inhabited random people in order to fight as Den-O; hence his worn-out-yet-desperate determination. You can see in the video above that he merged with Kamen Rider Kuuga without realizing who he was. The funny part is, Kuuga didn't know who Momotaros really was, and accidentally kicked him instead of the Alligator Imagin!)

So, before any Imagin can become fully-formed, they appear as the sands of Time, and do not establish a corporeal form until they make a Contract with a human victim. Because Momotaros intentionally never made a Contract with Den-O, outside of the DenLiner he always appeared in his sand-form... hence, the figure above.

To simplify-

In case you tl;dr'd, essentially:

These Imagin peeps generally need to make a verbal contract with someone to go into full colour. Before that, they are made out of the grey sands of time, hence this guy.

Why bother putting metal in

Why bother putting metal in just the toes? I would think that at the very least, these SIC guys would have metal feet for balance, and ideally joints for durability.

Soul of Imaginative Diecast???

They must actually be joking with us right? JUST THE TOES??? More like Soul of Imaginative Fauxgokin! Nice figure but- please don't contribute to the desecration of the Chogokin legacy. PLEASE?

Way to be narrow minded. Yeah, I'll admit, poor naming on their part. You don't have to go all "it's destroying everything that it means to blah blah blah fanboy."

I don't think it's "close

I don't think it's "close minded" to assume by the name the toy would have a little more metal in it.

Alright, lemme put it this

Alright, lemme put it this way. It's close minded becuase SIC is a branch off of the SOC brand. Now, I just now realized that this is the first SIC on this site, and that might have something to do with it. But just because they normally make high metal content pieces doesn't mean that they don't have stuff that isn't. It'd be like looking at a hat made by Nike and asking, "Where's the rubber?"

Another argument might be that a chogokin, by definition, should have plenty of metal. Unfortunately the brand is called "Soul of Chogokin." Guess they just wanted to keep the same naming mechanic.

First SIC?!

Haha, yeah, I mean it's not like that, say, the SIC Akumaizer 3 set was reviewed here a while back!

Now I'm just being mean. I don't necessarily agree with SIC being an SOC spinoff- I though it more harked back to the era of tokusatsu chogokin.

Fanboy? Narrow Minded?

To start with, you could be a little more respectful Mechaninja. This site is to comment on DX reviews, not for ripping on members.

First, I am far from a "fanboy"
Second, If you were to see the entire range of my collection, NARROW doesn't come close.
As for my mind?- hardly narrow.

And for this figure? It is barely technically a "chogokin" with its laughable metal to plastic ratio- period.
This figure should be : Super Imagine if we had some metal Content.
Like I said, nice figure- but not chogokin standards.
It's known as sarcasm in my first post. Lighten up a little man!

Still getting the name

Still getting the name wrong. It's "Super Imaginative Chogokin". Even says so on the logo in the "toy line" link.

Didn't the SIC line begin as Bandai trying to do Todd McFarlane style toys?

but my SIC Ryuuga and alternative zero were hefty they had a loet lot more metal than the recent ones at the price of lesser articulation compared to this guy... back in the old days of SIC there was at least a somewhat decent metal content....
