~ Megahouse Kamen Rider Faiz Axel Form (Deforide)

I receive this item last week from Hobby Search. Its one of my favourite figure. The mold is nice but I am dissappointed with the paint job. The paints application are quite rough on certain surface and also has some paint scratches.

Brief Specifications and Review:

Series: Deforide
Price: 3000 Yen
Material: ABS and PVC
Point of articulations: 19
Accesories: A pair of fist, a pair of relax hand, brief case, clear articulated stand, Faiz gadgets (Pointer, shot, edge, gun, phone, un-use belt), rider kick effect part.
Playability: 4.5 out of 5
Quality: 3 out of 5
Sculpt/ Mold/ Design: 4.5 out of 5

Axel:" dare you kill all these innocent people?"

Axel:" Ore- Sanjou !!!~" LOL

Axel:" Eat my dust !!!~"

The problem for this series is the head joint !!! The head only can turn about 30 degrees left or right. I suggest that Megahouse could add a extension joint to his head allowing his head to extend out slight and can bend forward or backward.

Exceed charge !!! ~

Axel Crimson Smash !!! Thanks for the free clear stand included by Megahouse. Axel can complete his rider kick !!! The stand has 2 points of articulation.

Axel:" Aaaahhhh....Who left the banana skin here? ><"

A look at the back detail.

Axel with Faiz edge preparing for chopping action.

I guess you know Axel is attacking who ~ :p

Sparkled Cut !!!

Axel: "Lets see what shall I use next ~"

The briefcase's handle fits nicely on his hand. The briefcase also carries a "Smart Brain" logo.

Weapons and equipments which are Faiz gun, belt, Faiz pointer and Faiz shot can be kept in the briefcase. However, the weapons are quite loose in their respective slot.

After uploaded all these photos only I realize I forgot to take Axel with Faiz Shot actions !!! Anyway, the Faiz Shot fits perfectly on his hand and has good detail.

~ MN-1014 II Hand Gun

I bought this toy after my brother asked me to get one as well from a gashapon machine by Bandai, Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. Each spin cost 200 yen. This hand gun is from volume number 14. Wow!!! Released up to vol. 14 already. It is about 4" / 10 cm long depends on type of gun. I must say, this not an ordinary gashapon toy.

Gimmick 1: The parts can be seperated. The below parts are what you are going to get and require you to install the gun. However, the trigger part is pre-installed maybe its quite complicated.

Gimmick 2: The "bullet" can be seperated into case and bullet itself. You must insert the bullet into the case.

Gimmick 3: Now lets us insert the bullets into the megazine. Remember always ensure that you are inserting the case filled with bullets. The are maximum 4 bullets can be inserted into megazine each time. Pull the small tip as shown by the green arrow. Then, you insert the bullet into the area as shown by the orange arrow. In real life I think this megazine is pre-loaded as normally I saw those gun user only changing the megazine when they reload this type of hand gun. ^^

Gimmick 4: You must pull the barrel as shown by the red arrow in the following photo before you insert the megazine into the gun. The small manual come with gun does not inform the customer about this. I almost break the megazine (plastic whitened !!!) when I tried to force it into the gun. Luckily, the gun is made from ABS plastic. I still manage to bend it back.

Gimmick 5: Put the megazine into the gun. Make sure that you plug it in tightly until you hear a "click" sound else your bullet gonna stuck inside the gun.

Gimmick 6: There is a lock for you to lock the barrel for safety purpose. You just have to push it up as shown by the arrow to lock it. ^^ Cool !!!

Gimmick 7: There is a small square shape hole for unloading the bullet case. I like this gimmick alot. Just imagine yourself holding the gun facing up, then pull the barrel. The case will fall out from the hole. Always make sure the case will come out after you shoot. Else you have to open up the parts again to remove it when the barrel got stuck.

A very good scientific toy indeed. I am looking forward for other volume to be released. One thing that I feel dissappointed is Bandai did not seal this hand gun parts with plastic when its in capsule causing some of the brown paint chipped on the grip.

~ S.H.Figurarts Kamen Rider Ultimate Form Kuuga

This is the most expensive normal released of Kamen Rider in S.H.Figuarts series at 3300 yen. He does not has much accesories but has many type of hands for you to swap. This set also includes the black eyed Kuuga face. Face? Yes, a face plate. Bandai does not give extra head but require you to swap the face armor. He is taller and heavier than other Figuarts Kamen Rider. Even the Tamashi stage can't support his weight !!! No.....I want his rider kick !!!

Henshin !!!

It has very great details on every parts especially his chest and belt. The center part of the belt is in tranparent black and has tiny details inside.

The sharp "horn" on his sholder armor is made from semi soft PVC but still very sharp !!! 100% not for kids to play this figure.

Another sharp point on his leg.

The black eyed Kuuga. I guess this is the evil form of Kuuga according to the source from Wikipedia. The emblem on his hand is real cool !!!

Kuuga:" Argggh....Let me squash you"

Kuuga:" Decade just bring it on."

Overall, this figure is great. I only feel dissappointed with his extra hands as some are not in proper sculpt or scale especially the default fist is so small and round. =="

~ Son Gohan Super Saiyan 2 (HG)

Gohan is my favourite character in Dragonball. Especially this Super Saiyan 2. I finally found this figure from a local toy shop. =) I can't wait for the S.H.Figuarts version to be released. =)

The details is awesome for a gashapon figure. He has brown line washed marks over the skin and has golden shiny hair !!! Too bad Figuarts version is in yellow color.

Gohan VS Cell with support from Gokou in SD form. =p
