Recently, Tamashii Nations has been promoting that the next retail S.H.Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou release would be Kamen Rider Dark Kiva. Also, with the announcement they provided details on when pre-orders will open, its price and its intended release date. However, until today there were only teaser images of the product, and no information regarding the figure’s accessories.
Now, surprisingly enough, S.H.Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider Dark Kiva will only include four pairs of optional hands. Whereas, the original S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Dark Kiva, released in late 2010, featured weapons used by the character. Yet, fans should not care too much about missing accessories, as the Shinkocchou Seihou is more accurate to the suit. Furthermore, this newer figure will feature a soft-goods material cape like Kamen Rider Wizard’s trench coat. Nevertheless, below is the gallery from Bandai:
Pre-orders for S.H.Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider Dark Kiva open tomorrow at online retailers. Orders for the figure at priced at 8800 yen, and expected to ship in August. However, it is expected that this item will be distributed to North America via Bluefin Brands.
