“Fire All Engines!”
After a very very long wait, we’ve finally gotten a chance to take a look at Kamen Rider Drive’s final form with S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Drive Type Tridoron! The ultimate fusion of man & machine, this release is actually the deluxe Tire Blending Set as well. So not only do we get an excellent new figure, but several new Blended Tires too! Drive Type Tridoron is one of my favorite final forms in recent memory, and one that I feel brings entire design and aesthetic full circle. Does the figure do the same?
Drive Type Tridoron has been a long time coming. The TV series and various specials for Drive contained numerous riders and forms and slowly most of them have somehow made it out to market, so it’s no surprise that Drive’s final form has as well. A big, bulky, and powerful looking new form, Type Tridoron takes much of what works from this line of figuarts and admittedly a few faults as well. But it can’t be denied what an impressive presence it is in a Drive collection. Especially when armed with the mighty Trailer Cannon, or one of 3 fantastic Blended Tires included with this deluxe release. Each brings a unique flare to Drive’s look and a special weapon as well.
We’ve put together a huge 100+ image gallery of this figure after the jump. Just click “Discuss on the TokuNation Forums” at the bottom of this post to see the full gallery & review. Obviously there are still several more Drive related figuarts in the pipeline, but this is an incredibly solid release for a riders’ final form. S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Drive Type Tridoron is another excellent addition to any collection.
