SODO Sundays – September 6th, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, Zero-One carries over to Saber!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

Even though it ended last weekend Zero-One still had some characters to offer and some of them are coming in Saber’s Book 1 Set! First up, Kamen Rider Eden! Eden made a cameo appearance in the finale of Zero-One to set up the plot of the delayed summer movie that is now releasing in December. The creators of the SODO line weren’t sure what weapons Eden would be using in the movie so they gave him an improved version of the Thousand Jacker weapon.

The other surprise figure for Zero-One in Book 1 will be the Fighting Jackel Raider! The form used by Yua during the middle of the series. She will come with her sickle weapon and special hands for holding said weapon.

Book 1 for Saber will also include a new stand design to them that allows them to be pegged on top of each other to save shelf space and stack figures for display.

SHODO-X 11

We now have pictures of SHODO-X 11. The set will include Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Level 2 and his Double Gamer XX forms. They will come with the Gashacon Breaker and Gashacon Keyslasher weapons. The Keyslasher will have stickers as well as stickers for the chest designs with the health bars.

Riderman will be the Showa Rider in the set, he’ll have his swappable arm weapons as well as his bike the Riderman Machine.

Kamen Rider Kuuga

N-Daguya-Zeba was teased a little while ago. He will be a stand-alone Premium Bandai release. He will be a little more expensive due to all of the detail and PVC plastic he uses. While shown recreating the fight with Kuuga Ultimate, Kuuga will not be sold with him.

That’s it for this edition of SODO Sundays Season 4! Stay tuned for the next edition on both Toku Toy Store and the Toku Toy Store Facebook page.

SODO Sundays – August 23rd, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, the story of SODO Kamen Rider Saber begins!

Kamen Rider Saber

The first set of Kamen Rider Saber SODO figures has begun to be revealed! This year the SODO Sets will be known as “Books”. Book 1 for Saber has shown off the first two figures, Kamen Rider Saber and Kamen Rider Blades!

Kamen Rider Saber will introduce new features in SODO line. He will split into two halves similar to how Kamen Rider Build did. This will allow for theoretical forms using the pieces from the different Riders.

The figures will have the ball joint swappable hands that were introduced with the Gaim SODO Chronicle figures, butterfly joints on the shoulders, and more leg movement. Continuing the trend started with Zero-One the figures will feature fewer stickers than usual, with only 18 stickers for Saber- Brave Dragon between the two boxes.

Kamen Rider Blades will be in the set as well, but more details on his figure will be shown off in the next update.

SHODO-X 11

No pictures of the figures yet, as they will be revealed in the next blog update, but the next set of SHODO figures will contain Riderman and his bike to continue the Showa Riders, and the first SODO Rider will make his SHODO debut with Ex-Aid Action Gamer Level 2 and Ex-Aid Double Action Gamer Level XX L & R. Details on the figures will be shown off next time.

You can watch the latest SODO Sundays video over on the Toku Toy Store Facebook page.

That concludes SODO Sundays Season 3! Thank you for the support over the past year during Zero-One! Come back the first weekend of September as we begin SODO Sundays Season 4 to cover everything SODO, SHODO, and YUDO has to cover over the next year!

SODO Sundays – August 9th, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, the final figures for Zero-One’s retail line and Chronicle Kuuga!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

The final two figures for AI-10 have been revealed. First up, in a surprise reveal, the Another Riders are continuing once again with Another Decade! The final boss of Kamen Rider Zi-O is joining the set. His head is almost entirely made up of sticker details due to the more complex design of the head. With his announcement, SODO has announced this figure is the end of the planned Another Rider figures as well as Zi-O figures in general.

The final retail figure for AI-10 will be Kamen Rider Ark-One. This figure is based on the final villain for Zero-One that just appeared in the most recent episode. With this reveal the final retail set for Zero-One is complete.

Now that Zero-One is winding down SODO has confirmed at least the first 3 sets for SODO figures for the next Rider series: Kamen Rider Saber.

Saber will begin to be covered in the first September update as well as in the first episode of SODO Sundays- Season 4!

Kamen Rider Kuuga

Following the announcement of Set 2 & the Premium Rising Form Set for the SODO Chronicle Kuuga figures the next Premium Bandai item has been revealed.

This will be a Set of Kuuga’s bike the TryChaser 2000. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without the Gouram as well. The Gouram will feature a handle Kuuga can hang from and will be able to connect with the TryChaser to form the TryGouram.

That’s not all for Kuuga as the showcase of Ultimate Form from the upcoming Set 2 ended with a teaser of the Gurongi N-Daguva-Zeba joining the Chronicle line in an unknown release.

SODO Sundays – July 12th, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, Zero-One starts its final retail set and the next series for SODO Chronicle is revealed!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

AI-10 will start with the Dodo Magia in 3 boxes. The first box will have his original Magia design. The second and third boxes are for Dodo’s Custom Upgrade forms. Specifically, the SODO figures can make his Dodo Magia Custom 2 form. In the show, Custom 1 is the armour from Custom 2 and the head from his base form but due to the neck peg system not matching between the two figures you’ll be unable to make the Custom 1 figure. They showed how it should look while saying how it can be made.

20200704184954

To go with the Dodo Magia you can get his chick footsoldiers that will be out AI-09.

SODO Chronicle…

GAIM!

Gaim will be the next Rider Series to join the SODO Chronicle line. Out in November, the first set will have Gaim- Orange Arms, Baron- Banana Arms, Ryugen- Budou Arms, and Zangestsu- Melon Arms. They have changed the body mould a little bit with this release, changing the waist articulation to be a ball joint and having the hands-on a ball joint instead of just a peg.

20200710193118

To fit with Gaim’s Arm Change gimmick you’ll be able to change the armours but to get the full effect stickers will have to be selected for the visors.

SODO Sundays – June 28th, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today actual Zero-One news once again! Zi-O is over!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

AI-09 has revealed the rest of its figures! First up is the final form for Zero-One: Kamen Rider Zero-Two! This figure will come with the Progrise Hopper Blade that Metal Cluster Hopper but will also come with a special version of the Attache Caliber with a peg at the bottom for the hand to hold both swords and recreate the combined version from the show.

Next up is the final figure to finish the Kamen Rider Zi-O figures with Kamen Rider Tsukuyomi! After a nearly year wait she is going to be released in AI-09. She comes with her Faiz Phone X that she used throughout the show but never in her Rider form except for in a stageshow as well as a swappable hand to recreate her Luminous Fractor weapon she used to backstab Another Decade in the finale of Zi-O.

AI-09 isn’t done yet as the new villain for Zero-One will be here as well: Kamen Rider Arc-Zero. This figure will have painted eyes as most recent figures have had but will include the option for stickers for the eyes to have more detail on them.

In a surprise reveal the final figure for AI-09 will be a Dodo Magia. More information on him will be in the next update.

Kamen Rider Ikazuchi from AI-08 has also finally been shown off after a long wait.

SODO’s commitment to making every on screen form has been something they have been keeping up since Ex-Aid and this has always included the forms seen in Hyper Battle DVDs. Zero-One had one earlier this year but the form from the special seemed to be overlooked, until now. In the September issue of the TV-Kun magazine, a SODO figure for the Hopping Kangaroo Zero-One form will be released.

Kiramager YUDO

A Japanese retailer put up pre-orders for the second set of YUDO figures for Kiramager and with them a list of contents. No pictures yet as the figures haven’t been revealed yet but the set will include: Kiramei Silver, Garza, the grunts of the season: the Bechats, and an accessory set. This set will be out in October.

SODO Sundays – June 14th, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today actual Zero-One news once again!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

To start off AI-09 we have two new HumaGear versions joining the SODO line! First up is the first generation of the HumaGear seen in the Reiwa: The First Generation movie as well as flashbacks from the series. This figure uses the base figure from the Guardians from Build and Kamen Rider Kikai from Zi-O. The figure, like the regular HumaGear coming in AI-08 gives you the optional sticker to have the good or evil HumaGear Module on the head and eyes.

Like the Another Riders from last year SODO is once again diving into the villains from the series with the Magia! The basic Trilobyte Magia was released back in AI-06 but now in AI-09 the other Magia are beginning to be released. First up is the Berotha Magia from the first episode. He comes with a Zetsumeriser that can be placed onto the normal HumaGear to recreate the transformation sequence. There are alternate stickers as well to show the uncracked and cracked Zetsumerize Key in the belt.

SODO Sundays – May 31st, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today actual Zero-One news once again!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

AI-08 has finally revealed some Zero-One characters to join all of the Over Quarterz Riders to finish off the set. First up is the HumaGear! This figure follows the Trilobyte Magia figures from AI-06 as well as shares some moulding from that figure. There will be a sticker option to display the HumaGears in their good, blue eyes versions or their taken over evil red eye version.

That’s almost it for AI-08 but the final figure will be the long teased Kamen Rider Ikazuchi who was teased all the way back in December. He’ll be officially revealed in time for the next SODO Sundays.

20200530014842

Kamen Rider Kuuga

SODO Chronicle Kuuga Set 1 just released in Japan and the Bandai blog has been posting in depth showcases of the figures. Last week was for Titan Form and while nothing much new was shown off for the figure there was a hidden tease in the photos. One showing Titan Form among some Tamashii Flame Effects showed a prototype for Kuuga’s bike the TryChaser. There are no details on how the bike will be released at this point in time.

20200520222258

SHODO-X 10

Now that the most recent SHODO Set is about to be released the next set has been revealed. Set 10 will feature Kamen Rider Kabuto in his Rider and Hyper Forms. These will include his weapons as well as pieces to make the Hyper Clock Up effect.

The Showa Rider joining Kabuto in this wave is Kamen Rider Super-1. He will be released with his different hand options as well as his bike the Blue Machine.

SODO Sundays – May 17th, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today nothing about Zero-One once again!

Kamen Rider W

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Kamen Rider W a new Premium Bandai SODO Chronicle set has been revealed. The first part of it is a Premium special version of the CycloneJoker figure. This time they have added much more paint and molding to him as the only stickers are really the Gaia Memories in the Driver. He will also include a sticker that shows the Joker Gaia Memory in his Maximum Drive slot and a sticker that matches with the memory missing from the Driver.

To go along with this figure they are also making the first SODO Chronicle bike the HardBoilder. Also included with it are the attachments to make the HardTurbuler, the HardSplasher, and Start Dash Mode.

Kamen Rider Zero-One Zi-O

More figures for AI-08 have been revealed! Joining Kamen Rider Zamonas in this set from the Zi-O Over Quartzer movie is the final member of the trio Kamen Rider Barlckxs! Bandai went all out with this figure. He comes with everything that he would need to, like his sword that is modeled after Kamen Rider Black RX’s RevolCane which also has the alternate finisher “lightsaber” mode. The stickers also feature the designs of the Black RX, RoboRider, and BioRider Ridewatches he has on his holder.

At the end of the film he holds up a banner shield that says “Heisei” as he is defeated by the 20 Heisei Rider final form Rider Kicks, so that is included as well and featured engineering to try and make it as accurate to the CGI piece it is in the film.

20200514191701

Now, they could’ve stopped there…

However, in the movie when he uses the BioRider Watch, he can summon Black RX’s power to liquify to attack and avoid attacks. This turns him all blue. So SODO is doing that too!!! Barlckxs will be in this set for a second time! This time cast in an all-blue translucent plastic to mimic this appearance.

20200514191504

They mentioned that there eventually will be a Zero-One character in this set as it has been nothing but Zi-O for it so far.

SODO Sundays – May 3rd, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today lots and lots of SHODO!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

AI-07 will be continuing with Kamen Rider Ichi-gata from Reiwa: The First Generation movie! This figure is a great one to pair with Kamen Rider 001 in AI-06. He includes a pair of fisted hands.

20200422164235

Also in the set is Kamen Rider Vulcan in his Rampage Vulcan form. The effort and time was put into this figure to mold all of the animals for all the different Progrise Keys this form is powered by. Like the past forms for Vulcan he comes with the ShotRiser in its belt and weapon forms.

20200430004224

AI-07 will be out in June but we already know the first figure for AI-08 and that is Kamen Rider Zamonas! This is the second of the trio of movie exclusive Riders from the Zi-O Over Quarterz movie. He comes with his bowgun weapon. Zi-O is almost done with the figures for Zi-O with this release.

Kamen Rider Agito

SHODO will be releasing a Premium Bandai Set for Kamen Rider Agito. This set will include Agito’s Burning Form that wasn’t in the earlier SHODO Agito set as well as Kamen Rider Gills and Kamen Rider G3-X!

This G3-X figure is fulled loaded with his full arsenal.

20200422192322

Kyukyu Sentai Go-Go V

SHODO Super continues for a second set! This set includes the entire Go-Go V team and includes the first female mold for the SHODO line. The team has all of the arsenals for the team as well as another SHODO first with minor stickers on the weapons for the smaller details paint couldn’t cover.
