Toy Review: Digimon Adventure Digivolving Spirits 05 Alphamon

Today’s unboxing review will be all about the warrior Digimon – Alphamon. Alphamon is part of the “Royal Knights” together with the more popular Omnimon (Omegamon) and Magnamon.

So far, I’ve done reviews for the first four released Digivolving Spirits figures and I have to say, so far my favorite would be the Angewomon figure. Let’s see if the Alphamon figure review would be my new favorite Digivolving Spirits figure.

Box Design

The box art design for the Digimon Digivolving Spirits figures line has been very consistently great. They would give you the feel that the figure inside really does transform from its rookie form to its mega or ultimate form! I really liked how they added little details on the inside flaps of the box as well.

The box also showcases the next figure to be released, in this case the Mega Kabuterimon – this would be the 6th Digivolving Spirits figure.

First thoughts

The figure would be at its Alphamon figure upon opening the set. At first, you’ll notice the contrast of the colors – the blacks versus the purples – which will make you think how this could transform well down to its rookie form Dorumon.

To me, the color purple on Alphamon’s transformation is still quite noticeable compared to when you transform the figure to its Dorumon form which in this case you can barely see any blacks.

I wished Bandai could’ve done a better job hiding the Dorumon’s colors it is quite loud when transformed to its Alphamon forme.

Figure Articulation

Given that this figure transforms into another one, the articulation is quite limited for both the Alphamon and the Dorumon forms. The main concern for the Alphamon figure would be its cape (which is mainly to cover for the Dorumon form) which makes the entire figure very stiff when it comes to posing.

The Dorumon form is very stiff and you can’t barely move it from its standing form.

Figure Details

What I really like about the entire Digivolving Spirits figure line would be the details. The paint apps and attention to small details are nicely done. For this figure, Bandai did not disappoint, given that the figure is mainly colored in blacks and purples. Bandai still manage to add minute details to the entire figure. I really appreciate how they’ve added the gold streaks into the entire figure paint apps.

The die cast parts on this figure are located at its golden bands, the red orb on its head and the chest armor – most of these are from the Alphamon form.

Overall Rating

This is still a solid figure set from Bandai despite its limitations in articulation. I would still recommend that you get this figure. This figure goes well together with the other Digivolving Spirits figures.
