Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today info about Saber Book 9, Ryuki 2, and some YUDO!
- Kamen Rider Saber
The next 2 figures for Book 9 have been revealed. Continuing the trio of Xross Saber forms is Featuring Saber! This is the form using the main books of Saber, Blades, and Espada and completes the variations of Saber’s final form. Included with this form is the final version of the Xross Saber still needed with the scanner piece at the top of the sword.
Blades is also getting his final form in this set as Tategami Hyoujuu Senki is finally getting a release. This one took a while due to the Bandai team trying to figure out how to due the mane on the helmet without limiting the head articulation.
Following these new figures Book 9 still has 4 slots left to fill.
Saber’s Dragon Televi form seen in the recent Hyper Battle DVD will be coming as a Televi-Kun pack in item at the end of July, following the pattern for Hyper Battle DVD forms as seen in the past.
- Kamen Rider Ryuki
The first SODO Chronicle Ryuki set will be releasing this August but coming this November is Set 2! For the first time in SODO Chronicle, this will be a set of 5 figures and will take up the whole space in a box without duplicates. Knight Survive kicks off the set with both versions of his Dark Visor Zwei.
Ryuki will appear in the set of course, but not as Survive, instead in his Blank Form seen only in the first episode of the series. This form will come with his broken sword.
To round out the set will be the next 3 Riders who appeared in the show, Ouja, Gai, and Raia. Each of them will come with their visors and their main weapons, something the first set didn’t offer everyone.
While no pictures have been shown off yet, to go along with this set the next 2 Premium Bandai Monster releases have been confirmed as Dark Raider for Knight Survive, and the combined Contract Monster Genocider.
- Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger
YUDO 2 is still due out in September but a teaser has been posted for the first figure in the set, TwoKaizer! It appears he will be more gold in color compared to the Change Hero Series release and looks to potentially have a swappable chest to switch to his Ohren and Shinken forms.
