SODO Sundays – July 21st, 2019

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, Zi-O reveals the rest of its line. 

Kamen Rider Zi-O

The final figure for Zi-O’s SODO Plus 2 has finally been revealed! The minons of Oma Zi-O: Kasshin! This figure will have his spear weapon included in the assesses box of Plus 2.

20190717215526

As for the accessories box of Plus 2 the Double Armors’ Memory Droids will be joining the set as well to round it out.

Many fans were expecting Kamen Rider Aqua to be the final figure of SODO Plus 2 and to apologize for the disappointment the SODO Blog decided to reveal the entire contents of Zi-O SODO Set 11. As of this point, this will be the final retail set of SODO for Kamen Rider Zi-O. The set consists of: Mirror Zi-O from the Ryuki Arc. The Decade Ryuki Survive Armor from the Rider Time: Ryuki special, and the Decade Faiz Axel Armor which was a Buttabosoul medal exclusive form. Special hands for Kamen Rider Woz will be included to have both Black and White Woz’s books.

But that’s not all. Another Zi-O will also be joining the Set as the first Another Rider to be in the main line. SODO Zi-O Set 11 releases in August.

With the final Zi-O Set revealed this leaves the forms and Riders from Zi-O’s Movie Over Quarterz missing from the line. Zi-O’s Oma Form and the Riders Barlckxs, Zonjis, and Zamonas will be joining the SODO line at a later date with more information to be revealed soon.

SODO Chronicle

The blog wasn’t done though. The next Kamen Rider series to join the SODO Chronicle line will be Kamen Rider OOO!! Shown off first is his TaToBa Combo. It does appear that the OOO figures will be able to separate for combo forming.

SODO Sundays – June 16th, 2019

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, lots of Zi-O and Den-O once again.

Kamen Rider Zi-O

The Dai-SODO Set that is releasing has been officially revealed. Consisting of Zi-O, Geiz, and Woz this set will feature better paint details and plenty of stickers for added detail. A sticker sheet will be included for the option of giving the Ridewatch holder any Ridewatch seen in the show. Another added feature is the clear plastic visors of the figures that give off a glowing effect when light shines through them. Woz’s Zikan Despear is also longer in this release than in his original release.

Zi-O Set 10 has also revealed it will have the next two Decade Armors. Based on OOO Tajador Combo and Ghost Grateful Damashii. Each of these forms will feature a base body in the Set lineup with Set 10 including one Decade Armor box with the stickers to make each; so, to display both forms, a second Decade Armor set would be needed.

SODO Ride Plus 2, releasing in August, has revealed most of the full lineup, consisting of DiEnd, Hattari, and Ginga. The last figure, as well as some of the accessories for this figure, are being left as a mystery. It’s unknown if the identity of the mystery figure will be revealed before release.

The SODO Another Set 1 releasing in July has releases better images of the four monsters in the set. This reveals better where the stickers on the figures are going to be as well as the fact that these figures carry over the hand swapping feature from the main line.

Kamen Rider Den-O

SODO Chronicle Den-O Set 2 has been revealed. The set will have Den-O’s Climax Form, Liner Form, and Wing Form. Unlike the second W Set, this will be a retail release. The Climax Form comes with a box of accessories that allow the form to become the Chou Climax Form as well.

SODO Sundays – March 10th, 2019

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, some of Set 8 and the SODO Plus set.

Kamen Rider Zi-O

After being revealed in the SODO ad a few weeks ago, we now have our first complete look at the Decade Build Armor. This armor comes with the Build Drill weapon the original Build Armor had included.

Geiz Revive and both versions of it are also joining the SODO line.

SODO Plus

Decade is the last figure to be in the special SODO Plus being released! This Decade goes all out, including the original White DecaDriver and the Pink Neo DecaDriver, the Violent Emotion head, G4’s Gigant cannon weapon, multiple versions of the Ride Booker, and hands with him holding cards. Definitely a great figure for any fan of Decade!

Shinobi, Quiz, and Kikai have also been fully revealed for this set as well.

SODO Sundays – February 24th, 2019

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, the rest of Set 7 and some teases for what’s to come.

Kamen Rider Zi-O

The final figures of Set 7 have been revealed. First up is Oma Zi-O! Teased back around Christmas this figure will finally be releasing in this set. His stand confirms his name as Kamen Rider Oma Zi-O, which is the first time he’s been referred to as an official Kamen Rider.

The other final figure of the Set is Woz’s Futuring Kikai armor. The final future Rider armor Woz has used in the show will also include both versions of Zi-O II’s sword. An extra Woz body from Set 6 will be included in Set 7 for those who don’t own one yet.

A new SODO ad has teased 2 figures not shown before. First was the Zi-O Decade Armor in its Build RabbitTank Sparkling mode. Confirming that we would be getting these armors in the line. Also Cross-Z Evol from the upcoming Cross-Z V-Cinema was also shown. With SODO Set 8 being another featuring Build set this makes a lot of sense to be included in the next set.

This ad also revealed the prototypes for some Another Riders from Zi-O! Another Build, Ex-Aid, Faiz, and Gaim were shown off in the ad. No information on how many they are doing or the way they are to be released yet but stay tuned.

SODO Sundays – October 14th, 2018

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, the first couple of figures in Zi-O Set 3 are revealed.

Kamen Rider Zi-O

The first few figures have been revealed for Zi-O Set 3! First up is the Fourze Armor. This armor, being more involved than others, will take up 3 of the slots in this set. The first 2 slots will be for the armor itself, and the stand. A rerelease/slight remold of the base Zi-O body from Set 1 will be in the set as well to allow for the different design the Fourze Armor has compared to others. Like in the show, the rocket mode used in the finisher attack can be done as well.

In a surprise move, SODO announced they will be covering the, as of now, toy and Ganbarizing exclusive Ride Armors. Ryuki is the first to be revealed as a part of Set 3. This is a basic armor, just a simple head, chest, shoulder pad, and thigh swap. If you missed out on the armor body from Set 1 and 2 then good news, it’s included in Set 3 as well. Also included with Ryuki is a new version of the Zikan Girade in sword mode that is now molded to have a Ridewatch in the slot for the finisher attack.

Both the Fourze and Ryuki armors are Zi-O only and no Geiz version pieces are included.

SHODO-X

As mentioned in the last episode a new SHODO-X set is on the way. The Bandai Candy Toy blog has released some new images of these figures as well as teased some possible upcoming SHODO figures in the works.

On the next episode of SODO Sundays, it’s showtime!

Full details on the Kamen Rider Kuuga CSM Henshin Belt Arcle

As teased last month, the next entry into the Complete Selection Modification line is the Arcle Henshin Belt from Kamen Rider Kuuga. Premium Bandai has now revealed the full details for the set.

The Arcle itself has all of the sounds and lights it was expected to have. Mighty, Dragon, Pegasus, and Titan forms are all included.

Additional plates and pieces are included as well. First is a plate used for the Rising Forms and Amazing Mighty forms. Another plate is included for the Ultimate and Rising Ultimate Forms. Button caps are also included for the Ultimate Forms.

All of Kuuga’s forms are represented in this release. All 4 base forms, 4 Rising Forms, Amazing Mighty, Ultimate Form with both Red and Black Eyes, and Rising Ultimate with both Red and Black Eyes. Growing Form is also included to some capacity.

But with the Arcle being a pretty basic belt another accessory was added. A replica of the phone used in the show by Karou Ichijo! Ichijo’s actor has returned to record new voice lines in the phone as well.

 

It’s unknown if the belt itself features any voice clips from Yusuke Godai or Yusuke Onodera as CSMs usually do but there is BGM tracks from Kuuga in the belt.

This belt has already sold out its first wave and a second will release in April 2019. You can pre-order from Toku Toy Store here.
