SODO Sundays – July 12th, 2020

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

Kamen Rider Zero-One

AI-10 will start with the Dodo Magia in 3 boxes. The first box will have his original Magia design. The second and third boxes are for Dodo’s Custom Upgrade forms. Specifically, the SODO figures can make his Dodo Magia Custom 2 form. In the show, Custom 1 is the armour from Custom 2 and the head from his base form but due to the neck peg system not matching between the two figures you’ll be unable to make the Custom 1 figure. They showed how it should look while saying how it can be made.

To go with the Dodo Magia you can get his chick footsoldiers that will be out AI-09.

SODO Chronicle…

GAIM!

Gaim will be the next Rider Series to join the SODO Chronicle line. Out in November, the first set will have Gaim- Orange Arms, Baron- Banana Arms, Ryugen- Budou Arms, and Zangestsu- Melon Arms. They have changed the body mould a little bit with this release, changing the waist articulation to be a ball joint and having the hands-on a ball joint instead of just a peg.

To fit with Gaim’s Arm Change gimmick you’ll be able to change the armours but to get the full effect stickers will have to be selected for the visors.

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 3! Stay tuned for the next edition on both Toku Toy Store and the Toku Toy Store Facebook page.

SODO Sundays – May 31st, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today actual Zero-One news once again!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

AI-08 has finally revealed some Zero-One characters to join all of the Over Quarterz Riders to finish off the set. First up is the HumaGear! This figure follows the Trilobyte Magia figures from AI-06 as well as shares some moulding from that figure. There will be a sticker option to display the HumaGears in their good, blue eyes versions or their taken over evil red eye version.

That’s almost it for AI-08 but the final figure will be the long teased Kamen Rider Ikazuchi who was teased all the way back in December. He’ll be officially revealed in time for the next SODO Sundays.

Kamen Rider Kuuga

SODO Chronicle Kuuga Set 1 just released in Japan and the Bandai blog has been posting in depth showcases of the figures. Last week was for Titan Form and while nothing much new was shown off for the figure there was a hidden tease in the photos. One showing Titan Form among some Tamashii Flame Effects showed a prototype for Kuuga’s bike the TryChaser. There are no details on how the bike will be released at this point in time.

SHODO-X 10

Now that the most recent SHODO Set is about to be released the next set has been revealed. Set 10 will feature Kamen Rider Kabuto in his Rider and Hyper Forms. These will include his weapons as well as pieces to make the Hyper Clock Up effect.

The Showa Rider joining Kabuto in this wave is Kamen Rider Super-1. He will be released with his different hand options as well as his bike the Blue Machine.

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 – April 18, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today Zero-One’s AI-07 begins!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

To kick off AI-07 is one of the more recent suits to appear in the series Kamen Rider Jin Burning Falcon! Bandai stated that they tested twelve different shades of red for the plastic to be able to get the best possible look to the show.

He will come with wing pieces just like his original base form release as well as two versions of his Slash Riser for belt and weapon modes.

Kamen Rider Kuuga

To celebrate the release of SODO Chronicle Kuuga Set 01 soon, the figures have been shown off in more detail. Mighty Form was the first to get this treatment. For this showcase, the Bandai Blog recreated a church diorama to reenact Kuuga’s first henshin into his Mighty Form from Episode 2.

That’s not all for Kuuga. He will be getting a third set in the SODO Chronicle line. This will be a Premium Bandai release. Included in the set will be Kuuga’s four Rising Forms: Rising Mighty, Rising Dragon, Rising Pegasus, and Rising Titan.

It doesn’t stop there. Pieces to make a new version of Build RabbitTank Hazard will be in this box as well as the first release of the double Rabbit eyes faceplate which appeared on screen for about 7 seconds.

Kamen Rider Kuuga

Kuuga will be the next series to join the SODO Chronicle line! His first set will come with his four base forms or Mighty, Dragon, Pegasus, and Titan form. They confirmed the other of his 11 forms that appeared in the series will be in line at a later date. The weapons also come with the regular versions that he uses to convert them into this arsenal. This set releases in April 2020.

Kamen Rider Den-O

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 – August 25th, 2019

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, Zi-O ends but isn’t gone for good!

Kamen Rider Zi-O

Zi-O aired its final episode last night and with it came a blog update looking back on some of the new things the SODO team accomplished this year from giant robots to special extra sets, monster sets, swappable hands, and past series making appearances in the line.

New stuff was revealed though. Ohma Form and the 3 Movie Riders from Zi-O’s summer movie will finally be getting releases in the SODO line but not in a premium set or anything, they will be coming out retail throughout the first couple of waves of Zero-One’s SODO line. Along with them will be the newest Rider to show up in the final 2 episodes, Kamen Rider Tsukuyomi!

20190813170204

Kamen Rider Double

In a surprise reveal Kamen Rider Eternal will be making an appearance in the SODO Chronicle line. It is unknown at this time how or when he will be released. He will have his dagger as well as swappable pieces to change into T2 Maxmium Drive attack.

Kamen Rider Zero-One

The newest Rider series will begin next weekend as well as a look at his first SODO figure. A teaser was shown off this week, however!

ZeroOneTeaser

With that SODO Sundays Season 3 will begin next week!!

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.
