OOO Combo Change 08 Kamen Rider OOO Putotyra Combo
And this seems to be the last of this fantastic OCC action figure series from Bandai - or is it really the last of it? Would there be some sort of last minute "last of the last" or some sort? I really don't know.
For all I care, I don't care much actually, in fact I haven't watch a single episode of Kamen Rider OOO tv show and I don't even bother to find out how the opening songs sounds like....
Eventually, someday I will, once the DVD box set is out containing all the episodes from first to end and I will watched them all continuously on the weekend... talking about late adopters, oh well, I just don't like to watched some episodes and have to wait again after that and I don't do all those dirty downloading torrent stuff.
Nonetheless, let's start the review of this OCC08 Kamen Rider OOO Putotyra Combo.
According to Wikipedia;
Putotyra Combo (プトティラコンボ Putotira Konbo), also known as the "Invincible Combo" (無敵のコンボ Muteki no Konbo), is Kamen Rider OOO's purple combination using the powers of Giru's Core Medals: Ptera, Tricera, and Tyranno. Though it is the most powerful form that Kamen Rider OOO can assume, it originally turns Eiji into a mindless beast if he stays in the Combo for too long. However, he eventually manages to exert his will over the purple Core Medals, but he still suffers from the physical strain.
So in a way, I tend to believe that this Putotyra is some sort of berserker and eventually as the most powerful form for Kamen Rider OOO after taking some amounts of viagra LOL....
Out of the box;
You will get all these;
Basically the head, body and legs part were separated since they call this toy series as "OOO Combo Change".
And as usual, let's have a look at this purple pervert monster;
Truly a monster and this form really look different than the rest....
Articulation wise it's very good but not as excellent as the other figures in this series since there are bound to be a little bit of obstruction here and there due to the gigantic and monstrous design of this form.
However, the usual kneeling pose can be done without any difficulty;
And now, let's have a look at the features of this pervert monster. First on the shoulder, you can do something like this;
And then the wing part at the back, you can attached it onto the head part, something like this;
You can also see how the manual explain it;
And this is how it looks like from the front;
The look is not at all friendly....
The next features is on the armor on the "tail" or "ass" part which also cover the side of the legs, something like this;
It can become a bigger kangaroo tail.... LOL
I told you, this guy is not really friendly and he is quite freaky in fact.....
And these are the weapon;
According to my friend who have watched some of the episodes of Kamen Rider OOO TV shows, actually this weapon ("Medagabryu" the name) can transform from the original "Axe mode" into the "Bazooka mode". However in this toys/figures series, big brother Bandai provide us with both of them - probably they just lazy to think about the "transformation" procedure.
So this is now the purple pervert monster holding his deadly axe ready to cut any trees... LOL
And this is the Medagabryu in the Bazooka mode;
Shooting spree time!!!!!! LOL
I guess that's about it, if you have this fun action figure I'm sure you can do any dynamic action pose that you can think off but I guess this is enough for this review.
If you happen to have the rest of the action figures in this OCC series, you can do something...
LOL... that is not what I really have in mind... actually I was thinking about trying out different combo combination but as my friend told me that this purple combo cannot be mixed with any other medal combo and I guess there is no need for me to do it then, but if you do have all these figures, for fun sake, feel free to try it....
Eventually I still missing the OCC 04 Kamen Rider OOO Sagohzo Combo. I'm not sure if I can obtain it within this year as that item have been selling like hot cakes, I missed the first initial release and I missed the 1st batch of restock release as well so I can just hope and pray that someday I can be lucky and grab it from somewhere. Probably I just skip it and get the S.H. Figuarts version instead... who knows right?
For now, I guess this should be the end of my journey with this OCC series and I think this toy/figure series is quite excellent in it's own accord. I can see lot's of improvement and eventually I enjoy this figure more than I could on the S.H. Figuarts version.
Kamen Rider OOO seems to be the firs Kamen Rider series that I have almost all of the action figures and that shows how much I appreciate this creation from Bandai. I simply love every bit of it.
As for this Putotyra Combo figure, eventually I do have some complains about it and that is about the"sturdiness" of the attachment.
When you attached or combined the head, body and leg parts... and then you play around with it, doing some action pose and all that, out of no where and quite often they seems like they wanted to be separated from each other. After a while it can be annoying. Usually you need to press the round button at the back of his body to separate them all but for this particular unit that I have, sometimes by just turning the body a bit and the body and will be separated from the leg parts.... sigh...
It is not really too bad but it can be annoying but after a while you tend to get used to it as well.
Apart from that complain, I guess overall I'm still happy with this figure, he is certainly a beast!!!
