“A transformation into a more mature style, perfect for formal occasions.”
The tradition of the Hyper Battle Video (and the rider forms exclusive to them) dates all the way back to Kamen Rider Kuuga, though that special did not feature an exclusive form for him. To this date none of the various HBV exclusive rider forms have ever had figuarts produced of them and likely never will either. In a search to rectify that case for Kamen Rider Drive, I stumbled across a fantastic artist & customizer. @relgnadam on twitter. Thankfully relgnadam had actually already created the form I was looking for, and after some correspondence agreed to recreate one more time for me, S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Drive Type High Speed! For Toku Toy Box today we’re taking a look at this magnificent work of art in the full gallery below!
I’ve followed relgnadams blog for some time now, which you can find here, madangler blog. You may be familiar with some of his more recent projects such as re-creating Dark Drive’s future ride the NEXTridoron or his brilliant work recreating fully poseable Cronus robes. Relgnadam is a professional, and his work is a labor of love. He tirelessly recreates figures and vehicles down to the most minute detail, with absolute precision. I was ridiculously happy to be able to come to an agreement on the Type High Speed custom you see today, and having it in hand after a little over a year of anticipation, I am nowhere near disappointed.
We’ve attached the full 50+ image gallery of this impressive custom piece to this post, but you can also check out our review by clicking the link below.

In a couple days we’ll be back with another Toku Toy Box gallery, and this time, we’re headed back into the Armour Zone….
