SODO Sundays – September 6th, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, Zero-One carries over to Saber!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

Even though it ended last weekend Zero-One still had some characters to offer and some of them are coming in Saber’s Book 1 Set! First up, Kamen Rider Eden! Eden made a cameo appearance in the finale of Zero-One to set up the plot of the delayed summer movie that is now releasing in December. The creators of the SODO line weren’t sure what weapons Eden would be using in the movie so they gave him an improved version of the Thousand Jacker weapon.

The other surprise figure for Zero-One in Book 1 will be the Fighting Jackel Raider! The form used by Yua during the middle of the series. She will come with her sickle weapon and special hands for holding said weapon.

Book 1 for Saber will also include a new stand design to them that allows them to be pegged on top of each other to save shelf space and stack figures for display.

SHODO-X 11

We now have pictures of SHODO-X 11. The set will include Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Level 2 and his Double Gamer XX forms. They will come with the Gashacon Breaker and Gashacon Keyslasher weapons. The Keyslasher will have stickers as well as stickers for the chest designs with the health bars.

Riderman will be the Showa Rider in the set, he’ll have his swappable arm weapons as well as his bike the Riderman Machine.

Kamen Rider Kuuga

N-Daguya-Zeba was teased a little while ago. He will be a stand-alone Premium Bandai release. He will be a little more expensive due to all of the detail and PVC plastic he uses. While shown recreating the fight with Kuuga Ultimate, Kuuga will not be sold with him.

You can watch the latest SODO Sundays video over on the Toku Toy Store Facebook page.

That’s it for this edition of SODO Sundays Season 4! Stay tuned for the next edition on both Toku Toy Store and the Toku Toy Store Facebook page.

SODO Sundays – August 23rd, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, the story of SODO Kamen Rider Saber begins!

Kamen Rider Saber

The first set of Kamen Rider Saber SODO figures has begun to be revealed! This year the SODO Sets will be known as “Books”. Book 1 for Saber has shown off the first two figures, Kamen Rider Saber and Kamen Rider Blades!

Kamen Rider Saber will introduce new features in SODO line. He will split into two halves similar to how Kamen Rider Build did. This will allow for theoretical forms using the pieces from the different Riders.

The figures will have the ball joint swappable hands that were introduced with the Gaim SODO Chronicle figures, butterfly joints on the shoulders, and more leg movement. Continuing the trend started with Zero-One the figures will feature fewer stickers than usual, with only 18 stickers for Saber- Brave Dragon between the two boxes.

Kamen Rider Blades will be in the set as well, but more details on his figure will be shown off in the next update.

SHODO-X 11

No pictures of the figures yet, as they will be revealed in the next blog update, but the next set of SHODO figures will contain Riderman and his bike to continue the Showa Riders, and the first SODO Rider will make his SHODO debut with Ex-Aid Action Gamer Level 2 and Ex-Aid Double Action Gamer Level XX L & R. Details on the figures will be shown off next time.

You can watch the latest SODO Sundays video over on the Toku Toy Store Facebook page.

That concludes SODO Sundays Season 3! Thank you for the support over the past year during Zero-One! Come back the first weekend of September as we begin SODO Sundays Season 4 to cover everything SODO, SHODO, and YUDO has to cover over the next year!

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.

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.

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: October 8th, 2017

Hello, tokusatsu community! Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my biweekly series, SODO Sundays. This week we have news from Kamen Rider Build, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, and the Ultraman franchise.

Kamen Rider Build

Last week, Bandai revealed the lineup for SODO Set 2, due out at the end of October. The final figures revealed for this set were two more Best Matches for Build. His newest form NinninComic was shown off first; this figure comes with the Ninja half, the Comic half, a stand, and his weapon the 4 Koma Ninpoutou.

Bandai also revealed Build’s next Best Match: RocketPanda! This figure comes with the Rocket half, the Panda half, and a stand. RocketPanda also comes with the Steam Blade weapon for Night Rogue and Blood Stalk. To give both of them the blade, you’ll have to buy two of RocketPanda, sadly.

Of course, as with all SODO Build figures, the Ninja, Comic, Rocket, and Panda halves can be mixed and matched with all the other halves already released to get all of Build’s Trial Forms.

The full line up for SODO Build Set 2:

1-2: HawkGatling

3-4: NinninComic

5-6: RocketPanda

7: Night Rogue

8

When it comes to Blood Stalk, his figure was just revealed last night as the first figure in Set 3, due out in November. Stalk comes with the sticker for his stand (stand sold in other sets) and the Transteam Gun. The gun is cast in red plastic this time, probably to cut down on costs a bit.

A final note for Set 3 is that Bandai said to make sure you have the Vacuum and Hedgehog pieces for this set, basically confirming that Fire Truck and Lion will be released in Set 3 to complete those Best Matches.

Kamen Rider Ex-Aid

A few weeks ago, it was announced that Ex-Aid’s new form, featured in the upcoming Kamen Rider Para-DX Hyper Battle DVD, was getting a SODO figure release in the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Super Complete Special Edition Hyper Muteki Box in December. Pictures for this figure have finally been revealed. The figure looks great, using all repainted parts from other Ex-Aid SODO figures it captures the look of Double Fighter Gamer Level 39 perfectly.

7

Ultraman

Finally, two new SHODO Ultraman VS. sets have had some pictures revealed. VS. Set 4 features the figures of the original Ultraman, Ultraman Tiga, Red King, and Alien Balton. This set releases in December.

In January 2018, the next Ultraman VS. set will be released. VS. Set 5 will include the current Ultraman, Ultraman Geed, as well as Ultraman Leo, Astra, and Magma Star. Set 5 also includes some effect parts of buildings and attacks to create great display pieces. The building pieces would also be great for the Super Sentai Minipla robo series.

Of course, SODO Build Set 2-3 as well as Ultraman VS. Sets 4-5 will be available at TokuToyStore.com!

That’s it for this edition of SODO Sundays! The next edition will be on Sunday October 22nd on both Toku Toy Store News and YouTube channel. For constant updates on the SODO/SHODO line go check out the @SODOFountain Twitter page.
