S.I.C. Vol. 50 Kamen Rider Kiva Part 2

Detailed to the brim

A look at all the accessories of S.I.C. Vol. 50 Kamen Rider Kiva after the introduction yesterday.

The figure straight out of the box.

The entire belt is still empty.

Items to fill up the belt: fixed Kivat-bat and 6 Fuestles.

Very nice details on the tiny Kivat-bat. All the silver line details are clear to see, so are the shiny paints done for the eyes and a jewel on the forehead.

Kivat-bat attached to the center of the belt.
As you can see, there's a slot in the belt where Kivat-bat's mouth is supposed to be to allow a Fuestle to be inserted into it.

3 Fuestles on the left hand side of the belt: Garulu, Basshaa and Dogga.

Crazily detailed sculpture for each tiny Fuestle O_O

3 Fuestles on the right hand side of the belt: Wake Up, Doran and Buroon.

The same level of crazy details as the 3 previously mentioned Fuestles.

Each Fuestle is attached to a pin on its dedicated position in the belt compartment.

Positions of the Garulu, Basshaa and Dogga Fuestles on the left side of the belt.

Positions of Wake Up, Doran and Buroon Fuestles on the right side of the belt.
Placement of the Fuestles is based on their order of appearance it seems. The earlier it get used in the show, the closer it's to the front of the belt.

A fully equipped Kamen Rider Kiva. ^^

The die-cast components on this S.I.C. figure include both shoulder armors, wristbands, knee armors and the entire separable armor on the right leg. All the chains are real metallic chains as well. As compared to the previous S.I.C. reviewed - S.I.C. Vol. 48 Kamen Rider Gaoh & Kintaros Imagin, the amount of die-cast components for Kamen Rider Kiva is actually more, even though it's just one figure. ^^;

The other accessories included:

Wataru's violin "Bloody Rose"

The details on the violin.

The bow for the violin.

Winged parts for the right leg for the "Darkness Moon Break" finishing move.
They are clear red parts with the exterior painted in normal silver. The details and texture are a bit creepy, but very realistic at the same time.

Some detailed engravings at the edges of the wings.

3 pairs of option hand units included.

Movable type Kivat-bat and the limited die-cast fixed type.

The details on Kivat-bat.

A connector part is included to allow the movable type Kivat-bat to be used on the belt instead.

The mouth of Kivat-bat can move a little bit, allowing it to bite down on a Fuestle, just as the depiction in the TV series.

The die-cast Kivat-bat is a little bit different from the normal fixed type. The missing mouth part on the latter is present on the limited version.

The die-cast Kivat-bat can of course be attached to the belt.

Rich details are well expected for a S.I.C. figure, but seeing how they are done so nicely on the figure can still be quite mind-blowing. ^^
