Toy Review: S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider OOO Shauta Combo

Another complete form has included itself to the 10-inch scale models, this is the S.I.C. Kamen Rider OOO Shauta Combo. Powered by 3 core medals namely Shachi, Unagi and Tako, the main color motif is blue. Some of the accents are beefed up that its S.H. Figuarts counterpart like the fins on the shoulders, crazy S.I.C. lines and Core medals held in the OOO Driver.

The accessory count in this Tamashii Web Exclusive maybe overwhelming at first, but it is really not. Part of the set for this Marine type form are 5 extra hands, 8 Tako tentacles and the adjacent accessories, 3 cell medals, the Denki Unagi and Voltarm Whips, and finally the translucent chest pieces.

Similar to its S.H. Figuarts form, you need to detach the default Unagi arm connections to replace them with longer versions. You need to twist the sockets and plug the whips on to these while letting the holding hands stabilize the grip. Voltarms are different wherein pulling the forearms will give way to insert these on the figure. What you will find more interesting are the tentacles, you have to replace the lower half of the body with a two-part clear base and form then attach each tentacle on the exposed pegs. Clear chest pieces, if you have other released S.I.C.s, is just plain and simple by taking out the Medal chest plate and replacing the parts piece by piece.

The only gripe you’ll have on the set is the limited shoulder movement due to the huge fins on the figure. With 8 legs on the ground will allow the figure stand up without the help of a stage. These can also fall off but that is due to the owner’s carelessness and it will not hamper the overall experience. I may have less admiration on the S.H. Figuarts counterpart but this S.I.C. takes a whole new perspective to the Marine combo. More to this from the video review below.
