Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today Saber, Zenkaiger, and DECADE?
Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger
YUDO Zenkaiger will be out in May. There isn’t any promo shots of them just yet but we do have a prototype for ZenkaiJuran!
There will be 9 boxes in this set, Zenkaiser and ZenkaiMagine will each be a complete figure in one box. ZenkaiJuran, ZenkaiGaon, and ZenkaiVroon will each have to be 2 boxes to make the figure. Finally there will be an accessories set as well.
Kamen Rider Saber
The Shimi soldiers will be a part of Book 5! These are the not often used grunts of the series that will be comprised of 2 boxes. In regards to their existence, it was decided to make them in SODO before it was known how little they would appear in the series.
They will be very light on stickers, only including the sticker for the nameplate on the stand.
Finally for Saber related figures it was mentioned how important the input from the surveys is when deciding releases. It was originally reported that the helmets for the random combos, like Saber- Dragon Peter would not be created in SODO. Due to feedback they are now being considered for release. Saber- Dragon Peter and Saber- Dragon Eagle Butasan are scultped but haven’t been approved for release yet, so time will tell.
They will in fact be releasing the straw and wood house shields to go along with the brick house for the Butasan form though.
Kamen Rider Decade
In a surprise turn of events Decade Complete Form will be released as a SODO figure in Saber Book 5 as well! They have gone all out with this figure to the point where a special accessories set will be released in Book 6 in March to give him everything. He will have a number of sticker options to showcase the normal Complete form, the Strongest Complete Form seen in some movies as well as the Final Form Rider summons of Kuuga-Kiva and Diend.
If that wasn’t enough in his Book 6 accessories set he will have an open DecaDriver for both the original and Neo version, a swappable arm piece with the Kamen Rider Amazon Gaga Amulet, and to cap it all off, ShinkenRed’s Rekka Daizontou!
They had to jump through a number of hoops to include the Sentai weapon, which included having to put the Shinkenger logo onto the box for the set!
Kamen Rider Gaim
The next set for SODO Chronicle Gaim as been revealed as well! This will be the final retail set for SODO Gaim and will include the final forms for the main Riders. Gaim Kiwami Arms will have the most paint included on a SODO Chronicle figure, with all of his silver detail. He will have the DJ Gun as well as a hand for Kachidoki Arms with him holding the Kiwami Lockseed.
Ryugen Yomi is next in the set, and will feature a remolded chest plate to accommodate the new Kiwi helmet articulation, and he will have the Overlord Inves weapons.
Finally for the figures will be Lord Baron. While not technically a Rider form, this was the the “final form” used by Baron in the show. He will have his weapon as well as a broken version of it and the Banaspear to recreate scenes from the final battle with Gaim.
Instead of a 4th figure there will be two boxes of Kiwami Arms weapon accessories that have all of the weapons he could summon with the form, including the Kurokage Shin version of the Kagematsu and new Lockseed inserted versions of the Sonic Arrow, DJ Gun, and Musou Saber.
SODO Chronicle Gaim 3 will be released in May.
