Arms Change 08 – Kamen Rider Zangetsu Shin Melon Energy Arms
Retail Release – February, 2014 – ¥3,000
With the power of the Genesis Driver, Zangetsu has become an all new Kamen Rider, Zangetsu Shin! His Arms Change figure, 8th in the series, has been released in February, 2014 for the standard price of ¥3,000. Zangetsu Shin, at the core is the same as all the other Arms Change figures, but done up with the Genesis Driver, and Zangetsu Shin’s all new suit stylings. Included is the Melon Energy Arms, as well as the Energy Rider’s main weapon, the Sonic Arrow. It’s hard to get the figure in a pose in which he is actually firing the thing, but it still looks neat and has a little pull back action which is nice. The Melon Energy Arms looks great, and I can’t help but really like it. Zangetsu was my favorite Armored Rider, and his new form is even better. I love the clear orange plastic, and it’s really great. While the Arms Change line is really hard to collect given the shortages in production, but it’s still a fantastic line, and Zangetsu Shin is a great addition to the line. On to Kurokage…if I can find him anywhere.
