The Waiting Game, a new busou shinki, and another kind of rider?

The Waiting Game, a new busou shinki, and another kind of rider?
04 Mar 2011 08:29:48

So another semester begins, I' am eagerly waiting for my wonderful or dreadful acceptance letter to the university which I will be transfered to. However, instead of getting that letter I received a interesting package...

Well I got a hold of Busou Shinki Zilvern, apparently its Zielbellen according to the box, and Figma Kamen Rider Zolda Torque.

Oh Konami, you and your pretentious way of spelling names of busou shinkis.

I have yet to open up Zilvern's box so I'm going to let Eternal handle the tape cutting business...

And out from the box is Zilvern, seems to be a bit shy despite the warm welcome.

Zilvern seems to be about the same height of most SHFs and I going to presume 1/12 figures as well (correct me if I'm wrong). Zilvern also uses a type 3 MMS body, so it might be taller than some figmas too.

Black★Rock Shooter: Hey Zilvern, you seem to be taller than the other shinkis and Torque over there.

This is the first time, I bought a Figma Kamen Rider, and it is quite stable. The articulation for it can be a bit more finicky compared to a figuarts, but nonetheless it is capable of some awesome poses. Lastly, the rubbery parts are neat, but one has to "line" them up or else the rubbery parts somewhat bunches up.

I'm kind of surprised BRS could actually hold that cannon without a stand.

Zilvern is overall great as a figure, but her parts count is awfully low. Although she does come with a neat box, kind of reminds me of those revoltech boxes, most of the smaller bits fit into the box amazingly enough.

Zilvern: I want to hurry up and check what else is inside the box.

Zilvern: Check out my tiara BRS!

Zilvern: Hehe, I'am Black Pink Zigzag Rapier...!
Black★Rock Shooter:...

I almost forgot to mention that Zilvern comes with 3 very well detailed faces (1 neutral, 1 happy/sinister/battle face, 1 blushing face). And as for her quality control seems to be fine, except that the tip of her sword was a bit bent. Other than that she seemed just fine.

Zilvern: Nya?

Thanks for looking, and see you again~

Torque from what I've seen has some impressive paint applications on it, the gold looks fine. I'm still surprised Max Factory went as far as to color the two little dots under the gold circle on each shoulder pad; one red and one blue. Although I did notice on mine that it was missing one black paint application on just one side of the collar, but other than that the paint seems just fine.

Lastly, your choice of busou shinki Sharatan; you sir have fine and sophisticated tastes.
