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.

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.

SODO Sundays – April 5, 2020

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today nothing new but more information on AI-06 for Zero-One!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

The already announced final two figures for AI-06 the Trilobyte Magia and Kamen Rider 001 have now been shown off in more detail. The Trilobyte Magia is an all in one box figure. This was done with the intention of a potential army building. The only catch is that the stand and weapons for this figure will be bundled in the final box of the set with Kamen Rider Zonjis’ cape pieces and stand.

Kamen Rider 001 is using slightly remoulded leg pieces from the Blood Stark SODO figure from two years ago. This figure also features a PVC plastic head which means all of the details are fully painted on.

20200402105341

AI-06 has been delayed to a May release due to ongoing shipping and manufacturing delays around the world.

Next time the first figure of AI-07 will be revealed!

Kamen Rider Zi-O

AI-05 won’t just have Zero-One forms in it. The Kamen Rider Zi-O Ohma Form from the Over Quarterz movie will also be released in this set. Alongside him will be a rerelease of the Kasshin figure from last year’s SODO Plus 2 set.

SHODO

A brief teaser was released for the next SHODO set seeming to confirm SHODO Kamen Rider Amazon Alpha and Kamen Rider Amazon Omega for the SHODO line.

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.

20191127151432.jpg

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.

SODO Sundays – November 17th, 2019

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, more Zero-One to start AI-03 and the next SHODO set!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

The first two figures for AI-O3 (December release) have been revealed! First up is Kamen Rider Valkyrie in her Lightning Hornet form. This figure will also come with the Attache Shotgun for her or Kamen Rider Vulcan to use. Continuing in the trend of Zero-One SODO being well painted there is not a ton of sticker work to be done with this figure either.

Kamen Rider Horobi is next up in this set. To limit stickers on the legs not looking good the decision was made to just paint the entire legs as well as the chest and most of the head so this figure really doesn’t have many stickers at all! He comes with the Attache Arrow weapon too.

SHODO-X Set 8

The next Set in the SHODO-X line will be out in March 2020 and the lineup has been revealed. Kamen Rider Stronger will be in this set along with his Charge-Up powered up form and his bike the Kabutolaw.

Kamen Rider Blade will be the big highlight in this set though. He comes with his Blade Rouzer and effect parts for card-holding hands and effects for the cards used in his Rider Kick finisher.

As always, you can watch SODO Sundays Season 3, Episode 6 here:

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, more Zero-One to finish off AI-02!

Kamen Rider Zero-One

The final two figures for AI-02 have been revealed! SODO’s first female Rider since Ex-Aid’s Kamen Rider Poppy will be Kamen Rider Valkyrie in her Rushing Cheetah form. This figure is a female mold of the Vulcan body and will come with the same Shotriser accessories. The stickers on this figure will mainly be used to fill in the black details on the shoulder pads and other areas of the cheetah armor.

The last figure in the wave will make AI-02 the largest SODO set to date with 9 boxes. This figure is Zero-One’s Freezing Bear form. This form also features the first time SODO will have a pre-applied sticker on its head and have special transparent plastic parts to replicate the effect from the show.

AI-02 releases at the end November with Zero-One Flaming Tiger and Freezing Bear, Vulcan- Punshing Kong, Valkyrie- Rushing Cheetah, and Grease- Perfect Kingdom.

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.

20191011152631

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.
