Toy Review: S.I.C. Kiwami Tamashii Kamen Rider Agito Flame Form and Storm Form

The S.I.C. Kiwami Tamashii Agito Flame and Storm is one of the few Tamashii Web exclusives that was released in Bandai's banner of 3 3/4 inch figures. So lets start with Agito's second form or Dragon Eye power ups, Storm form. Its head and legs hasn't changed that much from Ground form and the main feature is on its torso. Storm Form's gem on the belt has changed from gold to metallic blue reaching towards its left shoulder, pad and arm. The other is Flame Form. Similar to Storm, Flame Form's major changes are on the red eye of his Agito belt overarching to the chest and right side of his arm, the rest remain the same.

The difference, except for the obvious color, is that Flame Form has a bigger and sharper shoulder pad. Both share the intricate design of your typical S.I.C. figures and has more details that of their big brother. Each has two pairs of extra hands, one pair for slightly relaxed motif and the other to either hold weapons or for the Kiwami Machine Tornador. Signature weapons include the Flame Saber and the Storm Halberd. Their weapons have molded effects to rather emphasize more than what they are. Obviously, fire for Flame Saber while Wind slash Water effect for the Storm Halberd.

However, even with holding hands, there are wrists already molded together with the effects which limits swapping the weapons from left to right. That is right hand on Flame and left for Storm. This means, unless you have a Kiwami Machine Tornador holding hands become useless in the mix.

Overall, I had no issues in articulation as I am already familiar having Ground form and Trinity in possession. The effects for this set is great and seldom seen in the Kiwami Tamashii line. But it is a downer that there is a limitation on swapping weapons on both side of the arms and the effects molded on the weapons, hindering the additional effort on the blade designs which should have been another highlight of the set.
