MG Figure-Rise - Kamen Rider Accel (Bandai)

Hi guys :) Here comes my 2nd MG Figure-Rise Kamen Rider... Accel!

Manufacturer: Bandai
Scale: 1/8
Grade: MG Figure-rise
Origin: Kamen Rider W
Price: 4500 Yen

Part 1: Legs & Feet

The legs are pretty well-done, as the articulations are very good :) Tights and ankles could turn left and right, giving a lot of room for handsome posing.

I Accel's feet are a bit bigger than Cyclone Joker, which is a good thing ;)

Part 2: Torso & Belt

The torso is pretty well-done too, as there's parts allowing better hip movement ;) The belt actually could be detached for the signature posing too!

Part 3: Upperbody

The neck can be tilted a great deal backward due to the transformation mechanism, which is fantastic for posing.

The body of Accel is less moveable as compare to W i.e. Cyclone Joker also due to the transformation, but not a big issue.

The shoulder permits 360 degree movement so all is GOOD ;)

Part 4: Putting It Together :)

Rider Form

Very good pose-ability ;)

Bike Form ;)

Very good :) Just a bit small if put together with Kamen Rider W... ;)

Quick Review

Plastic quality

The plastic very nice ;) The only flaw is that the nub marks turns dark instead of turning white, making it impossible to make disappear without repainting the kit...

  • Head/Neck: Fantastic :)
  • Shoulder: Fantastic!
  • Arm/Elbow: Good.
  • Wrist: Fantastic!
  • Hand: Very good... wished the hands are bigger...
  • Waist: Fantastic!
  • Torso/Hip/Tight: Fantastic!
  • Knee: Normal.
  • Ankle: Excellent!
  • Feet: Good.

Looks and Feels


Besides the turning-dark nub marks (which is not obvious by the way), I am very happy with this model ;) If you like action posing, this kit worth your consideration.
