Toy Review: S.I.C. Kiwami Tamashii TryChaser 2000 (Kamen Rider Kuuga)

The S.I.C. Kiwami Tamashii Trychaser 2000 boasts of an almost show accurate representation of Kuuga's police bike in the TV series. Even though that has been said there are a few minor changes such as the front and hind wheels that have thicker rubber material, giving that strong dirt bike edge. Its wheel spokes are broader, finished with a glossy grey SIC signature paint finish.  The rear suspensions have deeper crevasses with the drive chain molded together as single unit.

Other changes are the cylinders with the antennas attached to get that SIC feel and headlights having a lighter shade of blue. The rest of parts are kept true to its representation except from the engine block sprayed with a touch of bronze. There are 3 alternative ways to work around the bike. First, a slot is found at the bottom of the engine so you can use the S.I.C. Kiwami Tamashii Kuuga's stage. Alternatively, you can use any Stage Acts for that matter and it will work just the same.

 This also helps in mid air actions with Kamen Rider Kuuga. Next are for stationary modes with the bike's kick stand or with this clear base where the rear wheel sit in between two panels. Surprisingly this stage holds the wheel quite well.

This set only contains the long baton like Try-Acceler rod, which on the show does not only acts as a key but it changes into a sword when in Titan form. In addition are two grip wrists for Kuuga to hold the throttles.

I just a a few minor (like a mosquito bite minor) gripes. I just wished that the rear drive chain have this spring action and a smoother running  rear wheel.

The Trychaser 2000 is a decent toy given its aesthetics and how Kamen Rider Kuuga sits comfortably on the seat pan. It may look like the bike is too small for the rider, but if compared to show photos, seems accurate enough. But I was looking for its flavorful SICness which is minimal on this bike. It will make sense once you have combined this with the Gouram. If you are into Kuuga, this is going to be a nice treat for you and for your Kiwami Tamashii.Check out the video review below for more.
