Wizard looks awesome, but pretty easy pass for me. Will be all over Infinity though.

Super Tatoba looks pretty good considering what they had to work with. On the fence about this, but since OOO doesn't have an official "final form" I'll probably pick it up.

edit: Ouch. Just noticed the price for Flame Dragon. Prices continue to rise...

He actually comes with all the dragon parts, so I guess that's where the extra cost comes from.

Anyway, is anyone else getting impatient for the rest of the updated Showa Riders? I really like the new Kamen Rider 1 and need Rider 2, V3, and Riderman to go with him. I was hoping that at least one of them would get released this year, but that seems unlikely now.

Awesome! Hope this means we're getting V3 soon! I seriously check this board (I'm a lurker) every day or two for news on V3. I'd pretty much given up hope at this stage. I just figured the first two figures didn't sell well so they ended the line.

I have the first Rider 2 from this series so I'll stick with him but here's hoping V3 and Riderman aren't far behind.

I can now proudly say I own all the main SIC Heisei riders (along with W). I'm very excited as I never thought I would be purchasing all of them. I started off with Faiz in 2009 because I was amazed how awesome detailed and beautiful it looked and it seems just in the last two years I ended up collecting all of them lol.

The last piece to my showcase is W, which I just ordered this morning and I should receive it in a couple of weeks. I don't plan on getting any main riders after W mostly because I have nostalgia for the first 10 and W is an awesome series. (Although I don't like OOO the SIC line for the series is incredibly tempting!)

I may consider getting more SICs in the future but that's a big maybe, considering they're price tags. But for now I'm happy to have completed my small collection.

Oh, it looks like they are not done yet with Kamen Rider OOO yet; there is a pic showing a sic version of Kamen Rider Poseidon somewhere.

I am in the same boat. I started with Blade because I thought the King form was absolutely addicting to look at (too bad the skeleton for the figure is kinda trash like Faiz in my opinion; i.e. loose legs).

I ended up getting the main series and then went with OOO because the Combo for a few of them were just so friggin pretty. Lost Blaze Tajadol and Sagohzo in particular rank in my favorites so far...

I blame my friend for introducing me to these hobby shops.

In related news! My S.I.C. Zanki fell over for no reason and the plastic hook in his knee joint snapped! Hooray! It's not like he was my favourite Hibiki figure or anything...*sobs*. And he, along with his box-mate Ibuki, remain the two least stable and worst put-together of my entire collection. Even worse than the Chinese knock-off Gundam model kit I built (badly, as a child).

As much as I adore S.I.C., I am *not* getting another one from before Vol. 40 or so. They just aren't stable. That said, my Ryuga/Alternative duo-pack is perfectly fine. They're hardly poseable, with single-joints that don't fit very well, but at least they don't fall apart literally EVERY TIME I TOUCH THEM. There has never been an instance when I so much as looked at Ibuki or Zanki and one of their bulky metal bits, legs, weapons, or wearable equipment didn't fall off immediately.

Now I think about it...maybe it's just the Hibiki line that took a dive in quality. I haven't opened my Garren/Chalice duo-pack at all, for fear of the same issues as plague my Hibikis. Plus I've heard that the Blade line is really prone to breakage, and I couldn't stand anything happening to my precious Chalice.

I got myself a fresh pack of Act 5 stages for x-mas, so my three Hibiki figures are at least upright and unlikely to spontaneously shatter, for the moment. But Ibuki still has to have sticky tack on his mitts just to hold his trumpet. Sheesh.

Yeah, dont open those up. I got lucky with Chalice, but my Garren's leg broke out of package, Leangle's shoulder (armor) popped off and the peg chose to break over allowing the armor back on, and Blade Jack Form had its arm fall apart out of package.

Chalice was a little loose leg wise but only in the ball and not the point of articulation making for an easy fix... I have had several Faiz figures because the plastic in the leg broke out of package... Pre Vol. 40 sucks hard. I saw a chinese website that sells parts for faiz and blade skeleton wise but I would love to be able to buy those legit and without a middleman (wouldnt know where to begin).

Although I heard that the Hibiki SIC series makes great skeletons and replacement/modding parts for the Vol 13 Kuuga and Blade series (Agito too apparently but Hibiki line is much cheaper).

wow the thread is kinda dead guys :\

On topic, omg check out Infinity form, I might just grab this. Is this limited edition?
Seems like all the toy threads are pretty quiet these days... guess no one was impressed by the SHF SSJ Goku Renewal or the Vegeta or Trunks rerelease...


Anyway that's pretty cool!! Might actually have to pic Infinity Form up!
