“Familial love? I felt no such thing.”
After a weekend of fantastic teases for possible releases from Kamen Rider Drive, we thought it was finally time to take a look at this excellent release. One of the strangest but most welcome retail releases for sometime, it’s everyone’s favorite maniacal, apocalypse bringing, evil deadbeat dad! That’s right, it’s S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Gold Drive!
Gold Drive is a pretty straightforward repaint of the basic Drive Type Speed figuart with Proto-Drive’s archetype gear/proto-tire. The thing is though that this release takes an already fantastic mold, and spruces it up with the perfect paint apps. While this release brings literally nothing new to the table mold or accessory wise (in fact it comes with less) it’s probably the nicest use of this body so far. With the upcoming release of Zero Drive we’ve already seen 4 versions of this mold. Come on Bandai, when can we have Type high Speed? But this is yet another excellent addition to any Kamen Rider Drive, or in fact evil Rider/toku villain collection! Read on to find out why.
