SODO Sundays – December 8th, 2019

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, more Zero-One and a tease of what’s to come!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

The final figures for AI-03 has been revealed. Kamen Rider Jin will be final of the main five Riders to show up in the SODO line. Like Horobi this figure will come with the Atache Arrow as well as wing effect parts. He is also painted just as nicely as Kamen Rider Horobi was.

Kamen Rider Zero-One’s newest form, Shining Hopper will be joining the line! He like the other figures in the line so far this year will feature a lot of paint detailing on him rather than stickers for a lot of the yellow lines around the suit.

AI-04 has also revealed its first figure as Kamen Rider Vulcan’s Assault Wolf form. This figure will be coming with the Authorize Buster in its gun mode.

Kamen Rider Ikazuchi was teased with the Dodo Sword as SODO is working on fitting this surprise Rider into their release schedule.

SODO Sundays – October 13th, 2019

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, more Zero-One and Build!?

Kamen Rider Zero-One

The first 3 figures for AI-02 have been revealed for Kamen Rider Zero-One. Zero-One’s Flaming Tiger is first up. This form, like all the others recently, has a lot of paint detail on it which makes it look really great even without stickers. Multiple hands are included as well.

Vulcan’s Punching Kong form is the next one up. This figure still allows for the Shot Riser to be held by the huge fists. The fists can also detach in order to recreate the finisher attack from the show.

Kamen Rider Build

Grease Perfect Kingdom was shown off a couple of weeks ago without knowing how it would be released. This figure will be included in A1-02! AI-02 will be called SODO Kamen Rider Zero-One A1-02 featuring SODO Kamen Rider Build. Rare to see a series from two years ago still going on in the SODO line. Perfect Kingdom will come with two different ways for the figure to hold his trio’s dogtags.

Kamen Rider OOO

We knew next year SODO Chronicle OOO Combo Change Set 2 would be out but now there are pictures for it. Shauta, Tajadol, and Pyutotyra Combos are the lineup for this set. Pyutotyra is able to combo change as well, an ability only being seen in a net movie before.

SODO Sundays – September 15th, 2019

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, more Zero-One, as well as OOO!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

This year, SODO will be using brand new stands in the figure line. These new stands will have pegs for the hands to be stored in as well as the ability to combine together to form bigger stands. These stands were shown off being used with the second figure from AI 01 being Kamen Rider Vulcan- Shooting Wolf form. This figure also does not have as many stickers just like Zero-One and will break down a lot to be able to do form changes. He also comes with a holstered and non holstered version of the A.I.M.S Shot Riser.

AI 01’s box will also have enough of a ratio of bodies and armors so every form can be displayed unlike Zi-O last year.

Kamen Rider OOO

The full contents of Combo Change 01 have been revealed. Gatakiriba, Latorata, and Sogozo Combo have now been revealed on how they break down and what they come with. The set will have 7 boxes in it. They also have the ability to be swapped around to make all of the OOO mix and match forms.

The second set of SODO Chronicle OOO has also been announced for 2020 and will have Tajador, Shauta, and Pytotyra Combos in it.

Kamen Rider Build

Kamen Rider Grease’s Perfect Kingdom form from his new V-Cinema is getting a SODO release. It is unknown at the time how it will be getting released but it’s happening. It seems to include a hand featuring the dog tags of the Hokuto Trio. Metal Build was teased as well so we’ll just have to wait and see how this will come out.

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.

Kamen Rider Build

Gallery: Kamen Rider Zi-O – DX Time Mazine

The Rider Kicks Figure series is latest in a long line of budget gimmick figures and what would be a Rider without his signature ride? Shout it out loud and call forth the RKF-compatible – DX TIME MAZINE!

Time Mazines (タイムマジーン) are a type of time machine in the form of mechas which can transform between a flying Vehicle Mode (ビークルモード) and combat-ready Robo Mode (ロボモード). They are the means of time travel for Kamen Rider Zi-O and Kamen Rider Geiz, as well as special models being used by the Resistance and the Time Jackers.
