Toy Review: S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider 1 (Old)

The S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider 1 Old version or original suit version is somewhat a variant from Sakurajima release. As the first Kamen Rider suit, the figure is taken from the same mold as the Sakurajima version with a lighter shade of green for some parts, a more pale red compound eyes but this has a metallic paint application on its helmet.

The 2 mufflers and the first 4 pair of hands is the same as the Sakurajima version but on this set, Bandai has added with 3 more extra hands one of which is to hold the mine. One of these hands is supposed to hold the mine by taking out one its horns. It is difficult really to find that specific horn since there are no distinguishable markers. Another use for this bomb is to attach this on the translucent rider kick effect that plugs into Kamen Rider 1’s foot. Final part to mention is his bo staff with ornamented heads on each side and a silver mid section.

In my simple knowledge of the series, I think there should be a blue version similar to The Next, since I was looking at stock photos and Medicom’s releases. If it is, it will confuse first time Kamen Rider fans and make that difference between three releases. But that is only my thoughts. As for the overall package, I have no issue when it comes to articulation, price and optional parts. Even with that been said, it is almost impossible to use the bomb with the rider kick effect since this is not inclusive with a Tamashii stage.
