Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today the rest of SODO Book 9 and YUDO Zenkaiger 2!
- Kamen Rider Saber
The rest of Book 9 has been revealed! Kamen Rider Solomon was assumed to take up this slot but it has now been confirmed that he will be released later on down the line, so the final 2 boxes were freed up for a lot of accessories.
The first of these sets will include a bunch of items for Saber himself, focused around all of the random book combinations seen early in the show. These forms slightly change the helmet and that means there are a lot for them to do. Originally they were going to be skipped and this was said to be the case towards the end of 2020 but due to fan demand and finding a place for them, they are now going to happen. To cover all the forms faceplates are included for DragonPeter, DragonHedgehog, DragonHedgehogPeter, DragonEagleArthur, SaiyuDragon, and DragonEagleButasan. To make the forms even more accurate Swordriver pieces and stickers will be included.
Finally, a Ride Book holding hand will be included to recreate it scanned on the sword.
The final box for Book 12 will be accessories set for everyone else. LionPeter and LampHedgehog for Blades and Espada, the sword hilts for Calibur, Kenzan, and Slash. Slash also gets rock pose hands and the gun mode for his sword while Kenzan gets the other 2 shield versions for Butasan. Finally, the logo stands based on the final attack from the Zi-O Over Quarterz movie will be here for Gaim, Zero-One, and Saber.
Book 9 has been pushed from July to an August release.
The full line-up for YUDO has been revealed! While the Change Heroes line has already done TwoKaizer, everything else in this set will be picking up from where that line stopped. This included Super Zenkaiser and Super TwoKaizer. TwoKaizer will have all of his forms in this set and will allow for helmet and chest swaps to be more accurate than Change Hero for his Ohren and Shinken forms. The Kudakks grunts are also here in a YUDO tradition, as well as the very first figures ever for StaCeaser and ZenkaiRed! ZenkaiRed will even have his beam sword Geartlinger weapon!
YUDO has been pushed from a September to an October release.
