“Fight with me, my greatest buddy!”
It’s time to search & destroy all at mach speed one more time! Kamen Rider Drive continues to be a merchandising juggernaut with new releases churned out from Bandai every quarter. Even now, nearly 3 years after the series finale. This go around we’re looking at the first new S.H. Figuart released from the series second V-Cinema, Drive Saga: Kamen Rider Mach/Kamen Rider Heart. Once again Bandai has managed to fashion a new form out of pre-existing molds to create S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Mach Chaser!
Not to be confused with last years’ Kamen Rider Chaser Mach, Mach Chaser is Gou’s final form. Accessed through a new Shift Ride Crosser (which is present in the Mach Driver), Mach Chaser is a new spin on what made Chaser Mach so great. This time the cohesion between the mishmash of Mach & Chaser parts is even greater though thanks to a solid new color scheme. As always Gou has his trusty Zenrin Shooter at his side, and this time he has the addition of a brand new zenrin effect part for curved slashes! If you loved Chaser Mach then there’s lots to love for you here with Mach Chaser as well. Drive as a franchise has been built on smart repaints and reuses of pre-existing designs, this is yet another wonderful execution of that ideology. And just a heads up, Mach Chaser does not come with a Signal Ax, the ones in these shots came from my Kamen Rider Chaser.
