S.I.C Kiwami Damashii Kamen Rider Agito Trinity Form Part 2

The sword is painted on both sides

Moving on to the introduction of S.I.C Kiwami Damashii Kamen Rider Agito Trinity Form's weapons and option parts after kickstarting the review series in the previous posting. ^^

All of Kamen Rider Agito Trinity Form's weapons and option parts.

Weapon for the right arm (Flame Form): Flame Sword.

Closed by default, a pair of fins on the crossguard can be flipped downward to complete the sword's look.

Flame Sword.

Closeups on the sword's details.
A very "important" aesthetic feature to point out about Flame Sword: unlike S.I.C. Kiwami Damashii Kamen Rider Blade King Form's Blay Rouzer, the sword is fully painted on both sides. ^^

Weapon for the left arm (Storm Form): Storm Halberd.

Like the expandable fins on Flame Sword, the two blades on Storm Halberd are retracted by default and can be hinged outward to complete the weapon's look.

Closeups on the pole-arm's details.

The pole-arm is slightly over 14cm in length.

Two pair of option hand units included for Kamen Rider Agito Trinity Form: open fists for weapons and spread palms.

Not only does the paint work beautifully realize the metallic colors of the respective hands, it's delicate enough to even indicate the different finger segments. ^^

To attach Flame Sword and Storm Halberd to their respective open fists, the handles are simply squeezed into the designated palm area through the almost invisible split between the thumb and index finger. ^^

Typical design of round slot for the wrist to accept the ball-type joint of all the hand units.

The default pair of closed fists.

A feature on the main figure that is inherited from the original Ground Form: the middle and rear pair of fins behind the head crest can be hinged downward.
On the original Ground Form, the crest opens up before Kamen Rider Agito executes its Rider Kick. On this Trinity Form, the crest should always be opened I suppose. ^^

A very striking figure this is. ^^ The metallic colors of the helmet, body armor, left and right arms easily stand out as the most interesting features to be noticed immediately on this S.I.C. Kiwami Damashii figure. Even though the gold used is of a somewhat darker shade as compared to the design of Kamen Rider Agito, it matches the tone of the metallic red and blue used for the the right and left arms respectively and compliments said two colors well. For that matter, the very obvious asymmetrical look of the figure is somewhat "softened" by the similar color tone.

The figure also features sculpted details that are just right for its size in my opinion. ^^ The curvy line details on the chest armors, left and right arms are obvious in their appearance, but don't look crowded or complicated that they occupy most of the space on their respective armors. They fit nicely with the figure's proporation and colors in realizing a unique image of Kamen Rider Agito in the S.I.C. series. ^^ Besides the details on the metallic-colored parts, the black limbs and back are filled with equally interesting sculpted details, most which would only be noticeable upon close scrutiny.

Also, the stylish sculpted details on the chest armor already give the figure's body an asymmetrical appearance to begin with, thus helping to "soften" the awkwardness of the figure's asymmetrical look together with the similar color tone mentioned earlier on. ^^

Speaking of minor details, I really like the clear red goggles and clear yellow jewel on Alter Ring, the henshin belt. Considering the small size of the figure, the special material used for the two components really gives it a level-up in terms of details and look. ^^ It also serves as a "reminder" on how S.I.C. Kiwami Damashii Kamen Rider Blade Jack Form could look so much better if its eyes were made of the clear parts instead of just been painted red. ^^;

Moving on to the figure's articulation design and some action poses in the next posting. ^^
