Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where protagonists always find the strength to rise from defeat and fight on to victory! Kamen Rider Build recounts Ryuga's hitherto secluded backstory, while Ryuga demonstrates his conversion from sidekick to hero in his own right by coming back from a quick defeat and finds the inner strength to save his friends from certain death. Meanwhile, over in Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger the Lupinrangers are reeling from last week's disaster but their inability to give up leads them back to each other and - thanks to a monster-of-the-week with a useful hidden ability - back on the hunt again. As always we'd love to hear your thoughts on Super Hero Time, so please come and join us over in our forum or on our Facebook page!   Kamen...

Here's what's happening on the next episode of Kamen Rider Build. https://youtu.be/wVXuTB1qLSw Episode 32: The Programmed Tragedy! Its been revealed that Banjo Ryuga contains traces of extraterrestrial life within his body! This greatly shocks both Sento and Ryuga, who comes to the sudden realization that most of his life has been a lie. Just why was Ryuga framed for murder, why does his Hazard Level increase so rapidly, how was he able to manipulate the Pandora Box, and why has BloodStark been targeting Banjo's growth this whole time? When Stark and Ryuga clash once again, more truths regarding Banjo's birth are revealed to him...   You might also like: SUPER HERO SYNOPSES | Rising From The Ashes Game On: KAMEN RIDER SUMMONRIDE BLEACH Trailer: A KAMEN RIDER Slays Again

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where it's dangerous to be related to Riders or Rangers. Kamen Rider Build continues its themes of identity, but also changes the mood by shifting the thrust of the story over to Ryuga (Cross-Z), who is about as close to a comedic relief character as the show gets. It seems that he too has a mysterious and unknown past, but unlike Sento he never recovered it until now. Meanwhile in Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger the tone is shifting in a more serious way, as Kaito (Lupin Red) finds that his target has a similar family situation to him, prompting him to try and help the very person he's also trying to rob. However, events outside of his control seem to make his chances of seeing his brother again about as remote as Ryuga's chance...

Here's what's happening on the next episode of Kamen Rider Build. https://youtu.be/ZZJbSvHP3I8 Episode 31: Surge, Magma! Banjo Ryuga may not be human… Everyone froze after hearing Misora’s words spoken while fighting Rogue within the Pandora Tower. Rogue was speaking about using human experimentation on Rouge’s girlfriend, Kasumi. Not only that but BloodStark was involved as well. Is Ryuga truly not a human? Meanwhile, the Kamen Riders alongside Sento burst within the Pandora Tower that is being controlled by Stark. Just when that happens, something strange happens to Ryuga…   You might also like: Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 7 VIEWTIFUL JOE: 15 Years Later ULTRAMAN Rights Challenged Once Again, Tsuburaya Productions Back in Court

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 7

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys, Uncategorized
Kamen Rider Build's SODO toy line continues to deliver with wave 7. This wave consists of Kamen Rider Build SmartPhoneWolf form, Kamen Rider Rogue and a third figure of your choosing. The last figure comes with enough pieces to create Engine Bro, Remocon Bro, or Hell Bros form. All these figures are very well done, as you'd expect from SODO, and they come with a fair amount of paint, especially the Hell Bros. I highly recommend getting a case rather than a set for this wave, so that you can have both Bros in your collection. Overall, this is another great wave, and I look forward to more from the SODO line. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWIcEWtxQjs&feature=youtu.be   You might also like: Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Full Full Rabbit Tank Bottle & DX Full Bottle B...

SUPER HERO SYNOPSES | True Identity

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where Japanese heroes strive to discover who they really are. Kamen Rider Build has always had some element of identity within it. Whether it's Sento's (Build) forgotten past, as referenced in the new intro sequence introduced this week, Kazumi (Grease) pretending to have similar amnesia in an attempt to forge a new identity, or the initial mysteries as to who Rogue and Blood Stark were. But this week the question of identity falls to Misora, who displays all three of her personas this episode as the latest chapter of the story begins to dig into the question as to who she is or what is possessing her. Meanwhile in Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger the Global Police are trying to determine if a trio of mild mannered cafe workers ar...

Misora was possessed once again by the spirit of Vernage, the Queen of Mars, as she quickly evacuates all the Riders from the battlefield! Just then, she says something that shocks everyone. “You will be hope…” Sento fights against Stark to try and reclaim the Pandora Box as they storm the Pandora Tower, and meanwhile, a secret about Banjo is revealed that confirms Vernage’s words…   You might also like: Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Tora UFO, Shika Pyramid, Kujira Jet, & Wizard Orange Full Bottle Sets Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Full Full Rabbit Tank Bottle & DX Full Bottle Buster VIEWTIFUL JOE: 15 Years Later

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Tora UFO, Shika Pyramid, Kujira Jet, & Wizard Orange Full Bottle Sets

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
So, since most regular release DX Full Bottle sets are so similar, we're going to go over 4 today from the Kamen Rider Build TV series and movie line. The first 3, from the show, are Tora UFO, Shika Pyramid, and Kujira Jet forms. All of these DX sets are fairly standard. If you like the form or the jingle (Shika Pyramid specifically has a very good jingle) then I recommend the sets. They're all cheap enough and solid additions into the Build toy line and any fans collection. However, the DX Wizard and Orange Full Bottle set is a bit more of a niche pick up. Much like the Kamen Rider Fourze and Kamen Rider OOO version, this set based on Kamen Rider Wizard and Kamen Rider Gaim requires you to have 2 other Full Bottles to achieve a Best Match with. Wizard best matches with Diamond fro...

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Full Full Rabbit Tank Bottle & DX Full Bottle Buster

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
Kamen Rider Build gets another upgrade this month with his RabbitRabbit and TankTank forms, and boy, if you thought the DX Hazard Trigger was a finicky toy, the DX Full Full Rabbit Tank Bottle will fix that for you. The DX Full Full Bottle is roughly the size of 2 DX Full Bottles put together, one side is gold and contains an interchanging, twistable top that you choose from a Rabbit image, Tank image, or a neutral image. The silver side is where all the electronics are held, and where all my complaints begin. For starters, the two halves don't interact so the image displayed on the golden half is a novelty at best. Now, to activate the different sound effects, you shake the bottle.... No, I'm not joking. Shaking the bottle gives you the sound of Build mecha rabbit from the show an...
