His fate is in your hands…Kamen Rider Meteor has joined the ranks of my collection! I have been looking forward to reviewing him, and he has left me a bit torn. Read on and you will see why.
Meteor is the secondary Rider in Fourze. I will blatantly say I have not been a fan of the show and it’s gimmick…as a Kamen Rider. If it was just another superhero, he’d be good. Kind of like if there was a Star Trek series that decided to be about an office drama on Earth. Anyway, Meteor was much more to my style.
Meteor is a gloss black body suit, brilliant blue helmet with the space motif. I love that is asymmetric, though I totally think they are re-using part of the Drake costume for the shoulder. It does not hamper posing though. I LOVE his helmet though. That blue is just sexy and gives him just that right amount of dimension.
Going strait to the accessory count, we have 3 pairs of hands, and a pointing one, two versions of the Meteor Driver, two versions of the Meteor Galaxy (arm component),and belt. The hands are also a slight difference in design from left and right. The right hand has an extra sensor on the finger for using the Meteor Galxy. There are also two versions of the food-droids deployed and hidden mode. Ok, I will say…the food droids are silly. I thought the can droids in OOOs were odd, but I could see where they were coming from (stealth equipment hidden in soda machines, silly, but makes sense). The thing is…
He’s a cute little guy!! Really!
Now for the two versions of the Driver and Galaxy. If you look closely on the left, there is an Astro Switch plugged into the driver, the right one has it removed. Same with the Galaxy, one with and one with out. This way we won’t lose some little Astro Switch. Fouze has that issue.
I HATE THESE LEGS!!! When I first saw them I thought they were re-using the Ryuki Legs. Especially with those knee caps. I wish they had. These are plainer than Blacks, but look at the hips. See that gap? Gods it bugs me! Black, Agito, all the “simple” legs with little armor still have filler.
That gap just bugs the hell out of me. This is the first major let down I have encountered with a Figuart. And then he split…yup, his waist joint pops like my Revoltech figures!
Well I did say he was cool from the waist up…Actually he is awesome, his hands make him so damn cool! From the Bruce Lee style he is supposed to emulate, we can have Meteor as…
Throwin’ Signs like he’s from the West Coast
Just Keeping It Real Yo…
oh I got one for you…what has two thumbs and is totally ready to be an internet Meme?
I couldn’t stop! If it wasn’t for those legs, I would consider Meteor the most fun figure of this year! If you can get by that one glaring detail, I absolutely recommend…
THIS GUY! ok…last one I promise…but really, he is pretty cool to have. As always, there are ways to get him 🙂
