Japanese toy maker Medicom Toy is riding on the Shin Kamen Rider wave with a new BE@RBRICK Kamen Rider collectible figure that pays homage to the OG Kamen Rider. Released as a commemorative product for BE@RBRICK WORLD WIDE TOUR 3 in Hong Kong is a 700 mm (27.6 inches) tall BE@RBRICK Kamen Rider Old No. 1 1000% figure.

The BE@RBRICK Kamen Rider Old No. 1 1000% is not the only special edition BE@RBRICKs. There are quite a few, including an Astro Boy and a Hello Kitty variety. As far as this figure goes, there is really nothing say much to say than it is based on the OG Kamen Rider 1 which itself makes it a worthy collectible. Well, that is if you are into BE@RBRICKs and/or are a got-to-have-it-all superfan of Kamen Rider.
