Friends on facebook who figured out the riddle on the S.I.C. page. GREAT WORK. (Congrats Eddy Ong for being the first to get it!) Now we have more information on this masterpiece!

Today, I will be reviewing the Super Imaginative Chogokin Takumi Damashii figure of Robot Keiji K (Robot Detective K) from Volume 9 of the Takumi Damashii series.

Character Bio:
The Character was created in 1973 by what many consider the father of Japanese tokusatsu and superhero manga, Shotaro Ishinomori (famous for his creation of Kamen Rider, Kikaider, Inazuman, among many other famous names).  In the story of Robotto Keiji (Robot Detective) the hero is a robot named Robot Keiji K or “K” for short. While the character has no human form, K often wears human attire and has human like personality traits. The main antagonists of the show are part of an organization named BAD . With his partner, Daizo Shiba, K solves crimes and fights criminals with style. K has the special ability of Blow-Up Mode, in which his blue metal armor turns red and is able to withstand much stronger attacks (such as rocket launchers, etc) and becomes capable of using an arsenal of guns and rocket launchers that were concealed under his armor (often used as a finishing attack against the BAD robots).

Thank you Wilson Tan, for this tip!

Now, Let’s get on with the review!

Details of the Blow-Up mode version:

The hand of “mother’ is close to being a 1:1 set of human fingers. Very strange and beautiful at the same time. The figure stands at about 12 cm tall (roughly 5 inches) when displayed thus).

SIC TD ROBOT KEIJI K 7There are two Blow-Up mode versions of the figure released. One with the weapons revealed and another with them hidden. While the one with weapons revealed comes with a black hand of “Mother” as a base, the concealed weapon version comes with a white hand with red/orange nails.
