The first item in 『METAMOR-FORCE "BARI"ATION』 series!
The ultimate "Baikanfu"， finally appears!
A full collaboration of MASAMI OBARI X SENTINEL -
Prototype production is by Mr. Tetsuya Ikeda (Origin), the representative of 『digitarian』, a 3D modelling team currently being very successful at events etc.
From recreation of the head which Mr. Obari is very picky about, to 『Pile Formation』 and 『Action (Articulation)』, this is an unprecedented Sentinel toy which stretches everything to the maximum!
In this review, we will talk deeply about Baikanfu, Kenryu, Rom and the pile formation gimmicks!
By the way, the blog writer seems too passionate about and touched by this item (?), resulting in a large number of photos he wants to share, and so we will divide the review into 2 parts, both in big volume!
Although still feeling a little bit lightheaded after WF, in order to show everyone our Baikanfu, he just kept taking lots of photos with a passionate spirit…!
???, "A fire that cannot be extinguished by storm… People call it『passion』…!”
Blog writer, "Who are you!?"
… So, the first one we want to introduce is…
The protagonist and the successor of Tenku Chushin Ken - Rom!
Rom whom everyone knows is made into a tiny figure of about 90mm!
Although he will be stored inside Kenryu and Baikanfu’s body after pile formation, his body proportions still look very good and he stands out on his own!
The head is in combat mode with the mask shut.
He has sharp eyes!
Despite small size the range of motion is wide.
Exchangeable hand parts such as knife hands and open hands are included.
Swing joint is used in the bottom part of the hands.
Since he can cross arms flawlessly, please enjoy the awesome gestures of Tenku Chushin Ken as shown in the above picture!
Rom’s favourite “Kenro” comes with the set!
So does Guardi’s sword “Nagase”!
Having these two swords means…!
Right! ”Tenku Chushin Ken Goikui Nitoichijin” seen in the final episode!
The twin blade formed by Kenro and Nagase is also included!
Just look how cool this posture is!
Ok, let’s move on!
The next one is…!
『At the peak of light energy, Kenro can cross the dimensional barrier and call forth Kenryu』
(Please recall the amazing voice of Mr. Sho Hayami in your head)
(Translator, "I don’t know who does the voice over for the English track")
『When Rom combines with Kenryu,
his power increases by tens』
『Wherever there is darkness, there is light.
Wherever there is evil, there is good.』
『The emissary from the heaven,
Kenryu, is here!』
And so here he is, Kenryu! Appearing in high spirits!
Of course Kenryu can accommodate Rom and combines with him into one!
We will leave the details in Part 2!
You can never imagine Rom being inside as Kenryu remains so stable and smart.
You can peep through the joints and see the red parts which is proof that Rom is inside.
Of course, we have included Kenryu’s “Kenro” and “The shield of justice” shown in earlier picture as optional parts!
The point is that even with Rom inside he is still capable of doing various poses.
And there are plenty of optional hand parts too!
So, finally, it is time for THAT to come…!
Heaven, Earth, Fire and Water,
"Whenever Rom needs help,
Kenro will become light in midair"
"Crossing time, crossing dimensions"
"Pile Formation is completed"
"When Baikanfu synchronizes with the planet's energy"
"He can draw upon the power of nature"
Okay, after finishing Pile Formation, it’s time to end part 1!
In Part 2 we will go on to talk about Baikanfu’s design, articulation, pile formation gimmicks etc.!
