Super Imaginative Chogokin

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Super Imaginative Chogokin (aka S.I.C.) is one of Bandai's popular line-up of die-cast metallic figurines (chogokin) based on the Kamen Rider franchise and other characters created by Shotaro Ishinomori and his production company. The figures are usually modified and differ from its counterpart as seen in the series. It is intended for those riders to closely resemble the ones portrayed in the manga and to have a much more darker theme. S.I.C. figures are mostly sculpted by Takayuki Takeya and Kenji Ando.

History[edit]

The S.I.C. product line is made up of 1/10-scale action figures (typical height is 7"/18 cm). The line debuted in December 1998 with its first figure, Volume 01: Kikaider. Popularity grew for S.I.C. due to its reimagination of the original comic book character. S.I.C. pays homage to the late Ishinomori Shotaro. The designs of S.I.C. reinterprets the original artwork by Ishinomori. The first ten volumes were only statuettes that were mounted on a stand but Volume 11: Side Machine and Kikaider marked a milestone for S.I.C. The figure was given very articulate joints because this set included a figure and a bike.

Spin Offs[edit]

Due to its overwhelming popularity, many spin off lines were created. The first of which is S.I.C. Takumi-Damashii which essentially are small figurines based on their S.I.C. counterpart. A similar S.I.C. line based on the tokusatsu show GARO was created in 2006, called Equip and Prop. Another Line is called Rangers Strike Solid, It was released on March 2007, It Is similar to the S.I.C. Takumi-Damashii but their poses were based on a card line by Cardass itself & it was dedicated to the long-running Super Sentai. The Movie Realization line debut in 2004. Similar to S.I.C. it features characters such as Devilman, Kamen Rider, Evangelion, Spider-Man, and Batman. By 2009, the newest line of S.I.C. which is smaller than a standard version called S.I.C. Kiwami-Tamashii, it will release on January, the first release featured the character Kamen Rider Hibiki.
