Medicom RAH Masked Rider Black

Guys, this is the toy of year 2008!!!, a real gem of all the 12 inch figures !!
For all Malaysians, I am pretty sure that when our local television RTM was showing the show “Baja Hitam” in the 90’s , you all will be shouting “Tendangan Padu Maut” !!! “Belalang Tempur”!!!
After nearly 20 years, finally medicom releases its latest 12 inch action figure – RAH 393 – Masked Rider Black.

Hen Shin!!

This is simply NOT a toy for the youngsters, it nearly cost me a bomb and I may have to start makan roti next month …hahahahaha….

Head Shot and Rider Belt

Check out the details of Black’s head, the eyes are crafted in superb details showing the beautiful compound eyes of a grasshopper.

Rider belt is the most important part, the evil organization –Gorgom inserted one of the two century stone into Kotaro Minami body transforming him into masked rider Black. The other century stone was given to Kotaro’s twin brother who eventually becomes Shadowmoon.

Rider Actions!!

Koi!! Gorgom!!

I will show you the century power!!

I am Masked Rider Black!!

Let me show you the power of Black!!!

Hehe, I learned this pose from Den-O...

Posing with Black was a lot of fun, the articulation of the body was so surreal. You can do a bunch of action poses without even have to scare of breaking it, anyway for a toy that is so expensive I would advise to be more carefull when you are trying some unique posing, better be safe than sorry.

Battle Hopper

Kotaro Minami escaped from the evil organization - Gorgom with the help from Battle Hopper, his most loyal comrade. Battle Hopper is not just an ordinary bike, it cares for its master and even sacrifices to protect them. Battle Hopper was originally designed for the next century king.

Let’s Ride

Come over , Battle Hopper!!

Hopper: I will protect you, Black!!

Ikuzou!!! Hopper!!!



I would give Medicom RAH Black a 5/5, its just the best toy that I have ever collected, although the price is abit expensive but I still think it is worth every single cent of my money spent.


  1. Yosh! Your first figurine entry is finally up, congrats! This is a very good post as I believe not too many people possess this figure because it's really meant for Kamen Rider hardcore fans only. Nice work but I have some tips for this kinda post:

    1) Add some Wikipedia or related links about Kamen Rider, particularly BLACK for general readers or the uninitiated so that they won't scratch they head when they land here. Youtube videos make good addition too :)

    2) Photoshop is your friend, dont't trust your LCD monitor when bumping up the background to pure white. Make sure your R/G/B values are all 255 for pure white. My LCD monitor reveals major flaws here.

    3) If you let the front wheel spinning while taking the last two photos, they'll be significantly more "dynamic" and dramatic!!!

    Okay, why don't you pluck Hopper's LEDs out and stick them into Black? And where the heck is the trademark Tendangan Maut pose?!

    PS: Get you Blogroll up ASAP so that you can start exchanging link to get more exposure.

  2. Thanks for your comment ya,
    I will try to improve on my subsequent posts.
    First of all, I really never thought of posing with the wheel spinning, maybe next time la.
    And I also tried to pose the tendanagn padu maut but ended up very gave up..(dont want to later koyak my Black).. up will be Batman & Batpod.

  3. nice shot...
