Premium Bandai announced the latest release in the Kamen Rider Zero-One S.H. Figuarts line, the S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Ark-Zero and Effect Parts Set.
“Arkrise! All Zero.”
Ark makes its impact on S.H. Figuarts! Kamen Rider Ark-Zero is Kamen Rider Zero-One’s primary antagonist, a sentient satellite that decided humanity’s fate was to be exterminated. Ark possesses no physical body, so it uses hosts, primarily members of Metsuboujinrai.net to transform into Kamen Rider Ark-Zero. It first made its debut in episode 36, I Am the Ark and a Kamen Rider.
Ark-Zero’s mechanical design is recreated in great detail. The asymmetrical design is faithfully reproduced, such as the red eye representing Ark’s core and the exposed cables. Soft plastic is used on the various cables wrapped around its body allowing for a wide range of motion. The figure stands at 145mm tall.
This release also have effect parts representing malice energy. This malicious kanji energy was used by Ark-Zero and members of Metsuboujinrai.net as well as Kamen Rider Zero-One Metal Cluster Hopper briefly. Two seperate pieces are included.
This figure also comes with an impressive variety of weapons; the Attache Arrow, the AIMS Shotriser, and the Attache Shotgun. Replaceable wrists include 4 left wrists and 7 right wrists.
