Bandai had just released the new Figure-rise Standard Masked Rider Hibiki and our stock is arriving soon. Let's have a first look of this kit (photos from Bandai Spirit blog) before we get it on hand.
To get this kit: Figure-rise Standard Masked Rider Hibiki
Let's start with the box art (above picture). The box art is kind of cool where we can see Hibiki standing in the forest.
The Hibiki body uses polarised material where you can see a glossy surface and glittering texture that changes its expression when exposed to light. Above picture show the straight build of the kit.
Besides the body colour, this kit comes with various of accessories: sound hammer and sound hammer effect; sound shooting effect; sound angle; different types of hands etc.
You can pose the Hibiki playing the sound drum as it comes with the drum pedestal as well.
The Flame effect parts let you pose the Hibiki in a very cool action mode.
And of cause, all figure-rise standard masked rider kits come with stickers. In this Hibiki kit, the unique visors part will be presented by the gradation sticker. The sticker will be pasted on the clear visor parts that have matte surface, this will create a texture on it.
Meanwhile, on the arms, gradation part is reproduced by a transparent sticker that printed gradationally. In addition to polarisation molding, various textures are used to reproduce the Hibiki.
Conclusion, this new Figure-rise standard Masked Rider Hibiki is not only comes with polarised molding, it includes a wide range of accessories too. This is a very cool factor for this kit.
I wish to know how's the articulations but this will not know until I get the set. But at this moment, it's a cool kit to me.
