As the Kamen Rider line of S.H. Figuarts continues, inevitably older releases go up in value. This has been especially true for the incredibly popular line of Shinkocchou Seihou renewal type figuarts. To date, of the myriad Seihou releases, only Kamen Rider Kabuto has ever received a reissue and that was two years after it’s initial release. Today that may change.
In confirming new items releasing in October, Tamashii Nations has announced S.H. Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider Kuuga (Decade Ver.). Kamen Rider Kuuga, or a version of him at least, played a significant role as a support character throughout the Kamen Rider Decade TV series and it’s movies. Mighty Form Kuuga was the most often seen form in Decade as well, though it should be noted that all of Decade Kuuga’s forms are identical to the original save for an additional form. So the exact nature of this “Decade Version” is unknown currently.
Does being specifically branded as the “Decade Version” allow Tamashii to circumvent some of their own self imposed rules for reissues like the Premium Color line of Dragonball figuarts? Or does this imply that the figure has some new accessories exclusive to the Kuuga version of the character? One thing to note, is the official image used to announce the figure. It’s completely new, as in, it’s not from the set of photos released for the original Seihou Kuuga orders. It would be quite odd of Tamashii to do a brand new photo shoot for a figure that has pre-existing official photos, unless there are new accessories in play. We’ll continue to report any more new information made available for this release.
Seems like there’s a reissue of the Shinkoccou Seihou Kamen Rider Kuuga coming in October 2019, although it is called the "Decade Version". So I guess it is meant to portray the character from that show.
Unless the accessory count varies it looks to be the same figure as the Shinkoccou Seihou though. So if you haven’t gotten that one yet, now’s your chance
Well, that's... interesting. The original only came with 3 1/2 additional pairs of hands too; so I can't imagine this would come with anything less? And what would it come with additionally, actually? Kivala???
Very weird news but not unwelcome.
It's been a while since I've seen Decade the show, but I can't really think of anything it could have to make it specifically represent that version of Yusuke.
Nice for anyone who doesn't have a Kuuga yet but wants one though.
Come to think of it, it has literally been a decade since Decade aired.
Whoa. Dairugger XV! That's going to break the bank.

Huh, interesting. Decade's Kuuga is the real reason I wanted the original release and was pretty satisfied with that. Can't imagine either what could be different.
But can't really argue against reissues of Seihous, they are totally worth if you missed them the first time around.
It could actually be that there's an optional Decadriver piece you could put on his waist instead of the Arcle.
Oh sweet, we're getting an RD Gelgoog Jaeger!
Eh... I guess this is pretty neat too, and I suspect this might hint at how they re-release some other Seihous as well (Kabuto, Hibiki)...
