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.

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.

SODO Sundays – April 18, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today Zero-One’s AI-07 begins!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

To kick off AI-07 is one of the more recent suits to appear in the series Kamen Rider Jin Burning Falcon! Bandai stated that they tested twelve different shades of red for the plastic to be able to get the best possible look to the show.

He will come with wing pieces just like his original base form release as well as two versions of his Slash Riser for belt and weapon modes.

Kamen Rider Kuuga

To celebrate the release of SODO Chronicle Kuuga Set 01 soon, the figures have been shown off in more detail. Mighty Form was the first to get this treatment. For this showcase, the Bandai Blog recreated a church diorama to reenact Kuuga’s first henshin into his Mighty Form from Episode 2.

That’s not all for Kuuga. He will be getting a third set in the SODO Chronicle line. This will be a Premium Bandai release. Included in the set will be Kuuga’s four Rising Forms: Rising Mighty, Rising Dragon, Rising Pegasus, and Rising Titan.

SODO Sundays – April 5, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today nothing new but more information on AI-06 for Zero-One!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

The already announced final two figures for AI-06 the Trilobyte Magia and Kamen Rider 001 have now been shown off in more detail. The Trilobyte Magia is an all in one box figure. This was done with the intention of a potential army building. The only catch is that the stand and weapons for this figure will be bundled in the final box of the set with Kamen Rider Zonjis’ cape pieces and stand.

Kamen Rider 001 is using slightly remoulded leg pieces from the Blood Stark SODO figure from two years ago. This figure also features a PVC plastic head which means all of the details are fully painted on.

20200402105341

AI-06 has been delayed to a May release due to ongoing shipping and manufacturing delays around the world.

Next time the first figure of AI-07 will be revealed!
