“Cast Off: Change Beetle!”
A dark reflection arrives in our latest retro Kamen Rider Kabuto gallery, it’s S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Dark Kabuto (Original Release)! This classic release predates the recent Tamashii Nations exclusive Shinkocchou Seihou Dark Kabuto by a number of years. And while it’s clearly been outclasses by the S.S. release now, we thought it was the opportune time to take a look at it.
Dark Kabuto is a decently extensive repaint of the original Kamen Rider Kabuto figuart. Though the detailing on his chest and back isn’t quite as sharp as the new Seihou release. As with many other figuarts from this period he tends to be a bit off model, a little too lanky, and lacks a number of accessories. But on a budget, the original Dark Kabuto may fill the gap in your Kabuto collection.
