Hey guys, Mitch here, so I briefly touched upon toys of the Figuarts and SIC variety a while back on my personal blog (Link). Now I feel somewhat obligated to bring a couple of reviews to the Mondo Cool community so here I am with a review of the SIC Kiwami Tamashii Kamen Rider Kuuga (Mighty Form) from well.. Kamen Rider Kuuga!

Now show accuracy isn't really a factor when discussing SIC because that is an absolute non-point when it comes to this line but don't worry; it looks like Kuuga and if show accuracy is what you're after then go buy the figuart, it's a bit more expensive but it's more show accurate.
As far as posability goes it's SIC regardless of its scale so you've got all the essentials; ball-jointed neck and head, arms and legs (with elbow and knee joints respectively) and feet. The motion of the arms is somewhat impeded by the large shoulder-pieces, and being a bit to forceful with them can pop them right out of their sockets but they pop right back in no problem. His legs however can't be positioned at a completely straight angle, meaning if you want him to stand up straight, then you're stuck with him at a slouched angle.
As for accessories you've got a pair of calm relaxed hands, a pair of fists and a left hand for Kuuga's henshin pose and a right hand in the thumbs up position for his iconic pose. Finally Kuuga also includes a smaller scale tamashii stand complete with arm, an effect piece to clip onto his foot and a plastic Kuuga symbol piece for it to clip onto. These pieces are used to recreate Kuuga's finishing move; the mighty kick!
Here's a little size comparison for those who care.
