Review: Arms Change PB01 – Kamen Rider Bujin Gaim Blood Orange Arms (Kamen Rider Gaim)

Arms Change PB01 – Kamen Rider Bujin Gaim Blood Orange Arms
Premium Bandai – May, 2014 – ¥3,780


Looking for Bujin Gaim? Ask a middleman, or hit up Mandarake or Yahoo Japan Auctions?

The Arms Change line has proven so popular, that Premium Bandai had no choice but to create their own Arms Change to ensure that nearly every Rider gets a release! The first release is Kamen Rider Bujin Gaim, the main villain from the Gaim (and Taisen) portion of the Gaim x Wizard movie! He was released in May, 2014 and cost ¥3,780 before middleman fees. Bujin Gaim is, as you guessed it, a repaint of the normal AC01 Gaim Orange Arms figure. The only major difference in the figure is the black mouthpiece painted in as well as the red crest on the helmet. Obviously included are the Blood Orange Arms, a red version of the Orange Arms with decorative black markings that actually look really cool. Also included with the figure is the Musou Saber and the Daidaimaru, also red to match the Blood Orange Arms. One thing to note is that while the Musou Saber is the same, the Daidaimaru is fully painted, unlike the one included with the normal AC01 figure. Given his status as a repaint Rider, the price of his premium status after all the fees isn’t really worth it. To hard core fans of the line, he has little flaws and looks great on display. Unfortunately it’s just hard to justify the price for a spiffy repaint, especially given that at the time of this post, the figure goes for $60-$70.
