SODO Sundays – August 9th, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, the final figures for Zero-One’s retail line and Chronicle Kuuga!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

The final two figures for AI-10 have been revealed. First up, in a surprise reveal, the Another Riders are continuing once again with Another Decade! The final boss of Kamen Rider Zi-O is joining the set. His head is almost entirely made up of sticker details due to the more complex design of the head. With his announcement, SODO has announced this figure is the end of the planned Another Rider figures as well as Zi-O figures in general.

The final retail figure for AI-10 will be Kamen Rider Ark-One. This figure is based on the final villain for Zero-One that just appeared in the most recent episode. With this reveal the final retail set for Zero-One is complete.

Now that Zero-One is winding down SODO has confirmed at least the first 3 sets for SODO figures for the next Rider series: Kamen Rider Saber.

Saber will begin to be covered in the first September update as well as in the first episode of SODO Sundays- Season 4!

Kamen Rider Kuuga

Following the announcement of Set 2 & the Premium Rising Form Set for the SODO Chronicle Kuuga figures the next Premium Bandai item has been revealed.

This will be a Set of Kuuga’s bike the TryChaser 2000. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without the Gouram as well. The Gouram will feature a handle Kuuga can hang from and will be able to connect with the TryChaser to form the TryGouram.

That’s not all for Kuuga as the showcase of Ultimate Form from the upcoming Set 2 ended with a teaser of the Gurongi N-Daguva-Zeba joining the Chronicle line in an unknown release.

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 Season 2 – August 19th, 2018

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. After a year of SODO updates it’s time to kick off Season 2 with the loose ends of Build and the beginning of Kamen Rider Zi-O!

 

Kamen Rider Build

Although Build ends next week and the final Premium Bandai set was already revealed, there are still a few more things up Bandai’s sleeve. First up is a hidden accessory for the Premium Bandai set in the form of the Build Driver with the Magma Knuckle and the Hazard Trigger in it from Build episode 48. Since that episode was not out at the time of the set reveal, they waited till now to show it off. So, if you already pre-ordered the final set this will be thrown in with it.

A Coming Soon image was also shown off. Could this be something related to the finale next week or something in a special post-show? Only time will tell.

Kamen Rider Zi-O

Speaking of time, the next Kamen Rider series is joining the SODO line! Kamen Rider Zi-O will be the third Rider series to have a SODO figure line and the first figure in Set 1 was revealed to be his base form.

Combining the distribution of an armour box and body box from the Ex-Aid line with the articulation and quality from the Build line Zi-O is trying to be the best of SODO line yet. Like other figures, Zi-O will come with a stand and sticker, which is the same stand they’ve used since Ex-Aid. He will also come with his Jikan Grade in sword mode. No gun mode for it yet but it will come eventually.

Zi-O will also follow in the footsteps of the Dai-SODO line right off the bat by including a set of swappable hands! He is shown using them for a passing of the torch moment from Build to him.

We are in for another year of SODO greatness with Zi-O on SODO Sundays Season 2!

As always you can watch the Season 2 premiere here:

S.H. Figuarts Dan Kuroto and Shin Dan Kuroto Announced

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.

Dan Kuroto:

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.
What other Kamen Rider characters would you like to see with the actors likeness? Let us know!
