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.

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.

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 – November 11, 2018

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, Zi-O Set 4 and some news on the Zi-O EX set!

Kamen Rider Zi-O

The first figure for Set 4 has been revealed to be the OOO Armor! This armor, like the Fourze Armor from Set 3, will require the use of the new base Zi-O body which is being included once again in Set 4. The Taka, Tora, and Bata animals can all form their animal modes as well, with a special piece for Taka to have both animal and head modes. A special Ziku Driver piece is also included that doesn’t limit any articulation and can still spin.

The EX Set coming out next year has finally been revealed to be the Time Mazine. Zi-O’s version to be exact. Being a SODO scale version it can form both fighter and ship mode, as well as have a range of articulation. A special piece is included to make the head have the OOO Ridewatch instead of Zi-O as well.

The EX Set is also including Zi-O and Geiz’s bike, the Ride Striker.

Next time: Lock on!

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, Zi-O Set 3, future news, a whole new SODO line, and YUDO as well!

Kamen Rider Zi-O

The rest of Set 3 has been revealed! First up is the newest armor to show up in the show, the Genm Armor. This Geiz exclusive armor comes with the stand, all the armor pieces and the Zikan Axe with a Ridewatch molded in it. Overall, being based on Genm, the armor is basically a repaint of the Ex-Aid armor from Set 2.

Continuing with the as of now toy exclusive forms mentioned last time we now have the Den-O Armor! This form also comes with the Zikan Girade in gun mode with the Ridewatch molded on it.

The full line up for SODO Set 3 is confirmed as the Fourze, Genm, Ryuki, and Den-O armors along with the Zi-O base body and armor bodies for Geiz and Zi-O.

29

The Wizard Armor was teased for Set 5 as well, not known why it’s not in Set 4 though.

30

While no pictures have been revealed pre-orders have revealed that Zi-O SODO Set 6 will be very similar to last year’s Build SODO Sets featuring Ex-Aid. Set 6 is Kamen Rider Zi-O SODO Set 6 featuring Kamen Rider Build. This could be the new forms from the upcoming Cross-Z V-Cinema or maybe the RabbitDragon form seen in Build’s finale. Another set has been revealed as Zi-O SODO Set EX, which could be villains set like Build did with the Guardians last year. Stay tuned to SODO Sundays for more info.

SODO Chronicle and Kamen Rider W

To celebrate the Heisei Period and SODO a new SODO line has been revealed. This new line will launch next year with Kamen Rider W. Two sets have been revealed, one retail and one Premium Bandai. The retail Set 1 will include CycloneJoker. FangJoker, and Kamen Rider Joker.

SODO Sundays – October 14th, 2018

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, the first couple of figures in Zi-O Set 3 are revealed.

Kamen Rider Zi-O

The first few figures have been revealed for Zi-O Set 3! First up is the Fourze Armor. This armor, being more involved than others, will take up 3 of the slots in this set. The first 2 slots will be for the armor itself, and the stand. A rerelease/slight remold of the base Zi-O body from Set 1 will be in the set as well to allow for the different design the Fourze Armor has compared to others. Like in the show, the rocket mode used in the finisher attack can be done as well.

In a surprise move, SODO announced they will be covering the, as of now, toy and Ganbarizing exclusive Ride Armors. Ryuki is the first to be revealed as a part of Set 3. This is a basic armor, just a simple head, chest, shoulder pad, and thigh swap. If you missed out on the armor body from Set 1 and 2 then good news, it’s included in Set 3 as well. Also included with Ryuki is a new version of the Zikan Girade in sword mode that is now molded to have a Ridewatch in the slot for the finisher attack.

Both the Fourze and Ryuki armors are Zi-O only and no Geiz version pieces are included.

SHODO-X

As mentioned in the last episode a new SHODO-X set is on the way. The Bandai Candy Toy blog has released some new images of these figures as well as teased some possible upcoming SHODO figures in the works.

On the next episode of SODO Sundays, it’s showtime!
