This week on CCLemon99.com I take a look at the Top 7 Best & Worst Yokai from Ninja Sentai Kakuranger. http://www.cclemon99.com/2016/05/twin-top-7-best-worst-yokai-from.html
Welcome to my review of the Road Kabuto [ロードカブト] from B-Fighter Kabuto [ビーファイターカブト]!
It's funny how I've slowly been getting into these vehicle toys. There is no real reason for it other than many of them being fairly cheap these days. Case-in-point, I managed to snag today's toy, the Road Kabuto, SEALED for ¥1000. Sure, you won't find something like Dairanger's Kiber Machines so cheaply, but there are still some quality sets out there for very affordable prices. Maybe there was a reason this was so cheap, though. Let's take a closer look!
Road Kabuto comes with a B-Fighter Kabuto figure along with an Input Card Gun and Kabuto Lancer.
If I could somehow copy and paste my entire review of the Police Speeder from Carranger, I would. Without even looking, I ended up giving this toy the same rating even. It has all of the same wins and faults. It's a very neat little toy with plenty of detail and lots to do, but suffers from fixed steering on the front wheel--which is actually more forgivable here. I do really like the figure of Kabuto here even though he is yellow rather than gold. I will say that wrist articulation would've made a world of difference when it comes to holding the Kabuto Lancer, but that's alright.
I'm sorry I really don't have a whole lot to critique on this one. It's a solid toy--especially for the price I paid for it. I kinda like the crazy design of the bike as a toy over it's goofy looking show equivalent. If you come across one for cheap, I say snag it. You won't be disappointed.
