I really enjoy Kamen Rider Drive, and one of the things that kept me in the show the early episodes was the inclusion of Mashin Chaser. Not quite a Dark Rider, oh no…just a bit more…I was thrilled that he was a main stream release as well, so I had to get him. So lets TUNE in to this next review!
Oh man…were to start…I love this character’s design and it translates so well to this figure! The asymmetry is rampant1 From the different eyes, the pipes, and the fan freaking tastic shoulder pads, he looks great. The skull on the shoulder really pops in silver. Actually all the metallic paints look fantastic contrasting to the black.
Front to back, no issues for me at all with the cosmetics. The details bring out things I never noticed in the show, like the “spine” on his back. This is really a gorgeous figure.
Accessory count…well…we get all we need. We get his gun and some hands. I would have liked some way for his gun to be put on his hip, just because then I could actually use the other right hands. The gun looks great though, getting the same love as the rest of the figure.
Articulation is good. The cables do limit certain poses, but in the show Chaser did fight rather stiff.
But he does pass the one leg test!
If a Drive fan, you need this guy. If a fan of purple and black, you want this guy (yeah, I’m talking to you with the Skywarper screen name…). Another good solid Figuart release in the Drive line. Really not much to say, but plenty to show, definitely check out the extra pictures. I give an A
