Toy Review: S.H. Figuarts Sagittarius Zodiarts

Out of the box, the S.H. Figuarts Sagittarius Zodiarts requires the flame-like accents to be attached at the back of the figure. The figure has a sophisticated and elegant look but seems to have a mix motif of a bird-like structure and that of a centaur archer. To complete, his signature weapon, Gilgamesh is attached on the right side of the arm. This bow’s arms do have joints the swivel in and out.

Other accessories included are the Zodiarts Switch and 5 extra hands. Though the holding hand in the mix can grab the Zodiarts switch, holding the switch is not as firm as weapon holding hand but it does what it needs to do.

Gamou’s personification in S.H. Figuarts form is not complete without the robe parts. To attach this of the figure, detach the shoulder pads and the flame accents out and then clip the arm sleeves followed by the torso. These have to be firmly clipped together assuring the robe doesn’t fall off. The problem area would be on his left arm it is why it is important to attach the bow again to keep the sleeve in place. On this stage, it is impossible to move most of the joints but you can adjust the feet and the head to balance the figure.

Amongst all of the Zodiarts featured in the S.H. Figuarts line, for me this is the most important figure to be included in your collection. Sagittarius is a well-executed figure but there are some off parts like the cylinders on the right arm and shoulder pads that dislodges themselves when they hit the flame accents on the back. The figure has the basic articulation and the abdominal joints are well hidden from view. More to this from the video review below.
