SHfiguarts Kamen Rider Rising IXA


Rising IXA, from 2008’s Kamen Rider Kiva, is the upgraded form of the secondary Rider, IXA. In the show, IXA is upgraded with the IXAriser (which was apparently hidden in his mouth all this time), which allows him to access the stronger Rising IXA form. 

*Mouthpiece ejects*




Rising IXA’s transformation received quite a lot of flak at first, mainly because it was just a copy of Kabuto’s CastOff, and that it used similar SFX too.  Having said that, Rising IXA is a remold of the standard IXA form. The only remolded parts are the shoulders, torso, stomach and head.

Rising IXA features a ton of paint apps unlike IXA which is primarily unpainted. The paint apps are extremely well done, and the metallic blue looks really good in person. However, the gold used for Rising IXA is closer to yellow than the gold used for IXA.

Accessory wise, Rising IXA comes with the standard IXA’s accessories, along with a cellphone mode IXAriser and gun mode IXAriser. Both IXArisers have hinges that allow them to be flipped open/closed.

Rising IXA’s hand holds the phone mode Riser pretty firmly, which comes in handy for scenes like this.

Sure, Rising IXA’s fingers are kinda too big for the buttons, but it’s not much of an issue.

Interestingly, the Riser’s recoil was so huge that it threw Nago backwards and deactivated his henshin during the first appearance.

The hinge in the Riser allows it to do the Laser Net mode like the DX version.

One thing that I really like about SHF Rising IXA is that his eyes are a lot brighter  and shinier than the standard IXA, which is why his eyes turn out pretty nice in photos.

I would highly recommend Rising IXA, but he’s a May’10 Tamashii Exclusive, which might make him somewhat harder to find.
