The Rider Kicks Figure series is latest in a long line of budget gimmick figures. This year’s line of Legendary Riders takes back to the long-lost past of 2016 with Kamen Rider Genm!
Aspiring God, Kuroto Dan (檀 黎斗), is the CEO of GENM Corp, Undead Bugster, and comedy heel who acts as both serious and goofy antagonist to the doctors of the CR. Using the Proto Mighty Action X and Dangerous Zombie Gashats, he becomes Zombie Action Gamer Level X-0.

This figure, as well as other Rider Kicks Figures, are available from Toku Toy Store at £24.99 each. Stay tuned for further Rider Kicks Figure reviews and galleries!
The Game Master returns! Bandai has recently announced that kami-sama himself, Shin Dan Kuroto, will be getting the S.H. Figuarts treatment in the form of not one, but two S.H. Figuarts! Dan Kuroto will and Shin Dan Kuroto have both been announced for release. Dan Kuroto is highly detailed, featuring a facial scan of actor Tatsuya Iwanagi, and Shin Dan Kuroto is decidedly more like something out of anime or a western cartoon. It’s silly, it’s over the top, and it couldn’t be more perfect. The press release photos show the figure in various poses, each channeling the Game Master flawlessly, and the face includes an almost unsettling amount of similarity in expression to the actor himself. The production model is sure to lose some of that quality, as all human-faced figures do, but it is still quite a sight to behold. See images below.
Shin Dan Kuroto:
S.H. Figuarts Shin Dan Kuroto so far does not have a price, and pricing will be announced in the near future. Per the pictures, the figure will include the Continue pipe as well as a miniature version of the Dangerous Zombie Gashat. Toku Toy Store will be accepting preorders for this item once pricing is released. This article will be updated once pricing is released.

Thought you were done with Kamen Rider Ex-Aid? Toei aren’t done with the doctor gamers yet!
Some interesting Ex-Aid news has been announced by Toei in the form of a novel series being published by Japanese publishing company, Kodansha.
From what’s been announced so far, the novel is set sometime after the events of the Another Ending V-Cinema Trilogy. The writer for the novel series is Yuya Takahashi, who was also the head writer for the series and the first book is due to be released at the end of June.
The title for the series is “Mighty Novel X” and is said to reveal the past and future for a character but we’re unsure as to which character that is yet.
Kodansha has been known to be publishing Kamen Rider novels for a few years now and their recent ones have been supplementary material to V-Cinema releases.
