silver wolf

Loki / Gaosilver
Ultimate Solid The Dark Heroes 1 – Gashapon
Manufacturer: Bandai
Origin: Super Sentai Gaoranger

you must be strong, fierce and cool looking to be the bad guys…

when Bandai announce that they will release the Dark Heroes characters of their Ultimate Solid line, I jumped of excitement *literary X D

I bet almost all of tokusatsu fans out there must be wishing for a special line dedicated for their bad idols, and here it is

the first line up included Hakkaider, Kamen Rider Ouja, Shadowmoon, Dark Knight and the Gaosilver himself in his wolf form, LOKI!! almost all of the tokusatsu world’s baddies you would wish for, niceeee….

I’ll review the other character later, but right now, here comes Loki!! to tel the truth, I’m not really familiar with this character, but this gashapon design itself really stood up among the other baddies… his terrifying crescent weapon, his bluish black armor plate, his smile and glare… all of those components really announced his identity as the bad guy!!

I really love the design, even beating my fanaticism of Shadowmoon in this first line up… in my opinion, Loki got the best design + pose among the other baddies in this first line up *bravo for making my Shadowmoon looks less charismatic for the guys who sculpted him -_-’

anyway, this wolf form of Gaosilver makes his appearance in the special movie of Gaoranger, watch to movie to love him even more ;)

Black Sun


Kamen Rider Black
Front-Gashapon version
Back-Trading Figure Hyper Detail (HD) Limited series 2
Manufacturer: Bandai
Origin: Masked Rider Black

he’s Black and he’s back!!
…… retarded opening line?? yeah I know ^^’
Kamen Rider Black is considered to be one of the most famous Kamen Rider series around the world in late 80′s… maybe it’s because the adult,complex and dramatic story or maybe it’s because somethin else…

anyway, here he is again, the Kamen Rider Black!!
we already talk bout his SIC Tamashii version, now we move on to his other figure form: trading figure and gashapon

the one on the back is Hyper Detail (HD) Limited version of Black.
he looks totally amazing!! almost 5 inch tall, nice black glossy finishing paint, superb details-especially on his eyes and those Black’s signature lines!! another good news, he comes with Shadowmoon on this series (I’ll review the Shadowmoon later) and share the same battle pose, better grab both of em!!
the only downer is the figure’s antenna…
it’s small, separated from the head and easily bent or fell off from the head… better take extra precaution when attaching those antennas

as for the one in the front, that is the gashapon version of Black
I’m not really sure what gashapon series he come from, cause I got that one loose for only 100 yen in Capsule Monster Osaka
but still, you just can’t get wrong by getting another Black figure that only cost around one buck, righty o!!
the gashapon version is still nicely detailed, even thought the paint works is kinda messy, but that’s not the main problem… the main problem is that antenna!! just look at them!! oversize antenna for a mini gashapon, ahahahahaw!! X D
