“Hyper Cast Off.”
There’s only one man who can walk the path of heaven. And while it’s been a long time coming, Bandai is finally tackling Kamen Rider Kabuto’s most powerful form with a new Shinkocchou Seihou figuart. However, with this premium do over on the way (as always) we like to reflect on the original figure that needed an update in the first place. With that said, let’s take a look at S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Kabuto Hyper Form (original Release.)
The original Kabuto Hyper Form was released nearly 7 years ago. In terms of where figuarts engineering is today, that’s an eternity. Many releases from this era have begun the transition into the Shinkocchou Seihou line but many more still need it as well. Hyper Kabuto though manages to still be a charming figure even after all these years thanks to a fairly involved Clock Up transformation, his Perfect Zecter, & the included wings of light for his Hyper Kick. What we’ve seen of the Shinkocchou Seihou release already puts this one to shame, but for a collector on a budget the original release of Kabuto Hyper Form is still a worthwhile alternative.
