Inside ‘The Henshin: Complete Selection Modification Exhibition’

This week, in Japan’s Akibahara district, Bandai Japan held an exhibition to commemorate their line of adult collectable henshin belts and accessories, Complete Selection Modification. In addition to a near comprehensive selection of CSM releases, the exhibition also introduced the concept of “the future of transformation belts”, a special exhibition of “future transformation belt toys,” giving attendees a glimpse into the future plans of Bandai’s toy division.

On their official website, Bandai provided this description of the exhibition:

The CSM series has been developed since 2013 as a complete toy series for adults. From the 1st release “Double Driver” to the 24th “Amazons Driver” will be displayed together with the world view of the work, and a reference exhibition of a new lineup will also be held. In addition, the latest CSM work that will be announced at the eve of December 6th will also be exhibited at the fastest.

As we announced on our Facebook page last night, the “latest CSM work” announcement they are referencing was for the Complete Selection Modification Kivat and Tatsulot devices from Kamen Rider Kiva. As promised, these items were on display in the exhibition too.

Thanks to one of our customers and supporters, Drew Hurley, we are able to provide you with a gallery of images from inside the exhibition. We’d like to express our supreme gratitude to Drew for sharing his images with us.

Kamen Rider Zero-One

The rest of AI 01 has been revealed! Biting Shark and Flying Falcon will be the last two figures to be featured in AI 01. Continuing the trend from Rising Hopper there is a lot of paint on these two forms with minimal stickers. Shark will come with the Attache Calibur in sword mode while Falcon will come with it in suitcase mode.

There will also be a Complete Set Box that will have just enough extra bodies to give each form an option to be displayed. This set will release on October 28th.

Kamen Rider Zi-O

The second Set of Another Riders will be out next month and the showcase on all four figures has begun with Another Den-O. All of the figures in this set will come with optional year stickers to reflect their original appearance or their Another Zi-O II summons.

BiriBiri Geiz will also be getting a figure in the big yearly box set this year that will also come with the DX Ridewatch for the form.
