Hey hey everybody, I've returned with a new review that's sure to spoil you!
It's time to hop aboard the ZeroHorn and jump into the past as I take a look at S.H. Figuarts
"What a nuisance..."
The fourth general release of the newly re-imagin'd Den-O line, Zeronos arrives in brilliant fashion, packaged in a highly detailed cardboard box with plastic windows along with a plastic tray within to hold the figure and all of its accessories.
As with the previous Den-O releases, Zeronos is packed with details and vibrant colors that really bring out the appearance of the seconday Rider, and do a superb job of recreating Yuuto's masked form.
Like Sword Form, Climax, and New Den-O before him, Zeronos is fully plastic, and features the same ball-type ankles joints which allow for a great range while posing.
When it comes to accessories, Zeronos has a healthy amount. Included are three sets of hands; two fists, two splayed open hands, two gripping hands, as well as a hand for holding the ZeroGasher in Bowgun mode, a pointing hand, a hand for activating the Full Charge lever on his belt, and lastly two gripping hands for his card.
An un-activated version of the ZeroGasher is included and split into two pieces for placing onto his belt. There are two versions of the clips that attach to the belt to have the ZeroGasher in active or in-active modes and are easily switched.
Included as well are two seperate versions of Zeronos' driver face, for when the card is locked in place or removed. The Zeronos card is included, and like in the show, is reversable for either Altair Form or Vega Form.
"Let me say this to start.."
"I am fairly strong!"
Lastly, two versions of Zeronos' main weapon, the ZeroGasher are included. One in Sword mode, and the other in Bowgun mode.
Both weapons are large and bulky, and really compliment Zeronos during posing. The attention to detail is superb, even having the slot at the base of each weapon to press in a Zeronos card to activate his final attack.
All in all, Zeronos gives us another enjoyable helping of Den-O, and recreates Yuuto's Rider form in great detail and poseability.
The only problems I could find with the figure is that, like Sword Form, his hands seems really tight, and I worry about them pulling the ball joint out of his wrist. Another issue is that his midsection movement range seems a bit limited, and doesn't allow for a great deal of turning and bending. Also, like with New Den-O, his gripping hand does seem to loose it's ability to actually hold onto the ZenGasher after a while, but that's a problem that is easily fixed.
Of course these are only small issues, and don't take away much if at all from the overall presentaion of the figure. If you're a fan of Den-O, I have little doubt that you own, or already have Zeronos on order, but even if you're not, his appearance really makes him stand out and I'm sure he'd fit into any Rider collection.
As always, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to have a look at my review. I hope that it was informative, and helped you decide wether or not to pick up this time-hoping Rider.
'Till next time!
"Deneb! Take over for me.."
