Toy Review: S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Drake

The dragon fly rider in the form of this S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Drake takes on a sleeker and more offensive feature of the fictional character. If it is not obvious enough, Drake sports a lot of wing accents starting from the compound eyes to the chest armor that is held by a brace in between, just right above the shoulders. The rest follows Sasword’s mold including the joints that hold the parts together.

 As what S.H. Figuarts action figures had back in the day, the figure includes 4 hands and the Drake Grip and Drake Zecter formed together into his primary weapon. Old SHF figures have a longer stem for ball joint showing the gap between the hand and the forearm. Even with that, movement of the wrist is more flexible than some S.H. Figuarts to date.

Looking at the figure, the wings seemed to wide for his head compared to the stock images of the character you see online. For its articulation, I cannot argue much since it follows the same frame as other Kabuto figures. Accessories, well that is what Bandai offered throughout that wave and those who had this just let it be. To close, Drake even with its less-than-accurate mold is a decent figure, even better than recent releases that offered almost nothing of added value. Bandai should stick to the simplicity of creating action figures such as Kamen Rider Drake. More to this from the video review below.
