Sky High is known as the King of Heroes in the Tiger and Bunny anime, and was one of my favorite characters other and Tiger and Bunny of course. Sky High was very dynamic in the sense that he was able to fly around via jet packs, as well as manipulate the wind as his NEXT power. Bandai once again hit it out of the park with the S.H. Figuarts Sky High, but I do feel that there could’ve been a little more. Read the review to check him out!
Sky High is really becoming one of my favorite Figuarts very quickly. Even as I’m writing this review, I’m noticing how much of Sky High’s (Keith Goodman’s) personality shines through the figure. The many different hands and the articulation, as well as the overall look really show what Sky High is all about in the Tiger and Bunny Anime.
I was a bit worried that the white, for lack of a better word, gown, that Sky High has would limit some of the articulation, but it doesn’t at all. Both sides of it are able to fold up on hinges to your heart’s content. Sky High’s feet are diecast, so if you’re worried that Barnaby and Tiger (can’t speak for Rock Bison) were the only ones with the metal feet, worry no more! As with all of the Tiger and Bunny S.H. Figuarts figures, the sponsors are posted on Sky High with plenty of detail and accuracy.
Sky High’s accessories aren’t the greatest, but they’re not the worst. He comes with4 different pairs of hands, a battle damaged facemask (really just chipped at the top) including the tiny, tiny piece of it that’s chipped off, and of course his signature jet effect for his jet pack. Overall, I feel there could’ve been more. Possibly some type of wind effect to go in his hands, a la Dragon Ball Z.
Overall, Sky High is a great figure. Even though he lacks some well needed accessories, he still has a very strong core figure with a lot of articulation and solid parts. If you can get around the lack of wind effects, I would recommend Sky High to any S.H. Figuart or Tiger and Bunny fan!
