The Digivolving Spirits line has expanded yet again, and this time they’ve released HolyAngemon! I’ve always been a fan of Patamon and Angemon that’s why I was very excited when Bandai announced the HolyAngemon prototype last year during a toy conference event.
I’ve already covered the earlier releases of the Digivolving Spirits figure, you can see the reviews below:

The photos for this review would feature a step-by-step transformation from HolyAngemon to Patamon.
I’ve said it again and I’ll say it again that I always liked how the box art are made. You will get the feel of the Digivolution transformation if you solely base it on the box art.
The box art also includes designs that are distinct to Patamon – especifically the DigiCrest of Hope.
The packaging also gives you an idea of the next figure release – this time it would be the black variation of WarGreymon.
The first thing I thought of when I saw the HolyAngemon figure is how would it transform to a Patamon? The colors of HolyAngemon is very different from that of Patamon’s. Well, it’s no surprise, given the complexity of the HolyAngemon figure I find this as the hardest to transform.
What’s Inside the Box?
The figure set basically includes the HolyAngemon figure the only accessory included in the set is the peg attachment for the stand.
Each parts of the figures are carefully packed into individual plastic bags so as not to damage the paint quality. As I said earlier, this figure has got to be the most complicated out of all the Digivolving Spirits figures.
Figure Articulation and Details
The figure has die-cast metal parts similar to the other Digivolving Spirits figures. The HolyAgemon’s die cast parts can be found on it legs which makes it appear easier to have the figure stand on its own. The die-cast part is quite heavy but its weight is still proportional nonetheless.
Aside from the die-cast part, this figure also has a translucent plastic parts found on the head armor and the weapons located in the figure’s arms.
The main thing that I really liked about this figure is its attention to details. This maybe the most complicated figure to transform but the details and mold is very impeccable.
Thee details on the gold strips and sculpts are nicely painted. I really liked that even small details such as the DigiCrest on the head was added into the figure.
You have to be extra careful when handling the winds on this figure as it may tend to break when you try to force it during transformation. The wing tips are also quite sharp so you should be careful with that as well.
The Patamon figure’s bottom part is painted in matte finish, so dirt or smudges might be of concern.
Since I personally have the Angewomon figure already, this figure was a no-brainer for me. I just had to get one! But If you’re not like me yet you still want to collect Digimon figures, then you should be considering this to be a part of your collection.
