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.

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.

SODO Sundays – June 16th, 2019

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, lots of Zi-O and Den-O once again.

Kamen Rider Zi-O

The Dai-SODO Set that is releasing has been officially revealed. Consisting of Zi-O, Geiz, and Woz this set will feature better paint details and plenty of stickers for added detail. A sticker sheet will be included for the option of giving the Ridewatch holder any Ridewatch seen in the show. Another added feature is the clear plastic visors of the figures that give off a glowing effect when light shines through them. Woz’s Zikan Despear is also longer in this release than in his original release.

Zi-O Set 10 has also revealed it will have the next two Decade Armors. Based on OOO Tajador Combo and Ghost Grateful Damashii. Each of these forms will feature a base body in the Set lineup with Set 10 including one Decade Armor box with the stickers to make each; so, to display both forms, a second Decade Armor set would be needed.

SODO Ride Plus 2, releasing in August, has revealed most of the full lineup, consisting of DiEnd, Hattari, and Ginga. The last figure, as well as some of the accessories for this figure, are being left as a mystery. It’s unknown if the identity of the mystery figure will be revealed before release.

The SODO Another Set 1 releasing in July has releases better images of the four monsters in the set. This reveals better where the stickers on the figures are going to be as well as the fact that these figures carry over the hand swapping feature from the main line.

Kamen Rider Den-O

SODO Chronicle Den-O Set 2 has been revealed. The set will have Den-O’s Climax Form, Liner Form, and Wing Form. Unlike the second W Set, this will be a retail release. The Climax Form comes with a box of accessories that allow the form to become the Chou Climax Form as well.

SODO Sundays – April 14th, 2019

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, there’s a lot of Kamen Rider Zi-O to cover.

Kamen Rider Zi-O

Both Ex-Aid and Build went Premium Bandai over the course of their lines and Kamen Rider Zi-O is no different. The first item for Premium is an odd one, the Sougo First Henshin statue from the first episode and the Oma Zi-O 2068 timeline. While not being classified as an official SODO item it’s designed specifically to be in scale with the SODO figures, namely Kamen Rider Ohma Zi-O.

Another Premium set was revealed to be a second EX Set. The first EX set, which released last year, had the Zi-O Time Mazine and the Ride Striker bike along with the Ridewatch face attachments for the Time Mazine. This second set will feature both Geiz and Woz’ Time Mazines along with Ridewatch faceplates for Kuuga, OOO Tajadol, Genm, and Cross-Z.

The rest of the Set 9 lineup has also been revealed: First up is the new upgrade form Kamen Rider Zi-O Trinity Form!

20190402155045

The Decade Armor catch up continues with both the XXR and XXL Ex-Aid Decade Armors! While both bodies are included for this form it does require the purchase 2 of the armor set to get the full effect.

Kamen Rider W

SODO Sundays – February 24th, 2019

Hello, tokusatsu community! It’s Joshua Perry here to talk about SODO figures on my fortnightly series, SODO Sundays. Today, the rest of Set 7 and some teases for what’s to come.

Kamen Rider Zi-O

The final figures of Set 7 have been revealed. First up is Oma Zi-O! Teased back around Christmas this figure will finally be releasing in this set. His stand confirms his name as Kamen Rider Oma Zi-O, which is the first time he’s been referred to as an official Kamen Rider.

The other final figure of the Set is Woz’s Futuring Kikai armor. The final future Rider armor Woz has used in the show will also include both versions of Zi-O II’s sword. An extra Woz body from Set 6 will be included in Set 7 for those who don’t own one yet.

A new SODO ad has teased 2 figures not shown before. First was the Zi-O Decade Armor in its Build RabbitTank Sparkling mode. Confirming that we would be getting these armors in the line. Also Cross-Z Evol from the upcoming Cross-Z V-Cinema was also shown. With SODO Set 8 being another featuring Build set this makes a lot of sense to be included in the next set.

This ad also revealed the prototypes for some Another Riders from Zi-O! Another Build, Ex-Aid, Faiz, and Gaim were shown off in the ad. No information on how many they are doing or the way they are to be released yet but stay tuned.
