Kamen Rider Build Episode 10 Shows Us How It’s Done, With an Action-Packed Heist

It's been two weeks since our last visit with the motley crew of heroes, rivals, and frenemies of Kamen Rider Build, and they've chosen quite the cliffhanger to leave us dangling from. With the Touto science lab about to be invaded by the terrorist organization known as Faust, loyalties on every possible side are being tested at each corner, tensions are high, and the show has geared up for its most thrilling episode yet. How do they keep outdoing themselves like this? We begin with a rare recap that doesn't include a pseudo-fourth-wall-breaker of the main characters sarcastically commenting on their own show as usual, instead preferring to just roll the clips in as dramatic a fashion as they can muster, slowly building us toward the coming siege. After the opening credits (with a s...

Review: Kamen Rider Build DX Legend Rider Full Bottle Sets

Kamen Rider, Reviews, toku, Toys, Uncategorized
With any gimmick-heavy Kamen Rider series comes the "Legend Rider" merchandise. Basically, this means the fans can get a taste of some of the older Kamen Riders in their new driver toy. Kamen Rider Build, however, does something very clever with its Legend Rider gimmick that very few seasons can match. Here we have the Ex-aid Full Bottle set and the W Full Bottle set. Ex-Aid is broken up in to the DX Doctor Full Bottle and the DX Game Full Bottle, while W is broken up into the DX Tantei (Detective) and DX USB Memory Full Bottles. This is awesome as it both encapsulates the core of Build's gimmick, being organic and inorganic objects coming together, and the main themes of the individual series. Overall, these are great for any Kamen Rider Ex-Aid or Kamen Rider W fans. It's great to remin...

Well, that settles it. With this episode ending the way it does, leading us into a direct continuation for next time, that means Kamen Rider Build has had ten straight episodes of pure plot with absolutely no narrative pitstops. Skip episodes at your own peril with this show, they're not taking any breaks. They may, on occasion, break you though. With one leap of development and dramatic revelation after another, no stones are left unturned with this amazing series and my love for it increases with each passing week. After another amazing recap, where genius amnesiac Kiryuu Sento learns that cafe owner Isurugi Soichi gave him his new name by throwing together the Japanese characters for "tank" (sen) and "rabbit" (to) and combining them with the family name of his barber Kiryuu, our st...
Review: Kamen Rider Build SODO Figures Wave 2

Review: Kamen Rider Build SODO Figures Wave 2

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
Well, the time has finally come. Wave 2 of the Kamen Rider Build SODO figures is here! Much like wave 1, I'm nitpicking at best to find anything negative to say. This time around, we get 7 boxes and 4 figures instead of the prior 6 boxes and 3 figures. The 4 figures are HawkGatling, NinninComic, RocketPanda and our first villain, Night Rogue. Every figure is excellent in detail, articulation and accuracy, once again I find it very, very difficult to say anything negative about these figures, even the price is great. Overall, once again, these are the best Build figures on the market and I can't recommend them enough. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX_a8m5W1jk For this and other Kamen Rider and Tokusatsu merchandise, check out CSToys and BigBadToyStore.

On a day unlike any other, he came, he saw, he died like a hundred times. It's the maniacal Dan Kuroto, the sometimes antiheroic, always antihumble video game supervillain known as Kamen Rider Genm, in his twisted Dangerous Zombie form from the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid TV series. And here to give us a taste of what we may be coughing up our hard-earned coin for is toy reviewer extraordinaire Vangelus, ready to drop some knowledge bombs down your drainpipe, with no continues. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N22ULPlYnWM For this and other Kamen Rider and Tokusatsu merchandise, check out CSToys and BigBadToyStore.

At last, his magnificence is upon us. Like a bat out of Faust's evil underground lair, the villainous Night Rogue emerges from the Kamen Rider Build television series, finally getting his shine with this S.H. Figuarts item from toy godsend Bandai Tamashii Nations.   Recently revealed as Himuro Gentoku, the duplicitous son of the Touto Prime Minister, Night Rogue acts as a leading member of the shadow organization Faust, conducting dangerous experiments on human subjects. And, in keeping with classic Kamen Rider tradition, as a key antagonist of the show, his theme is that of the bat. With a pose that screams "come at me, bro", this bad mamma-jamma is armed with his Steam Blade and Transteam Gun. These weapons combine to form the Steam Rifle. And did I mention the steam?...

Review: Kamen Rider Build DX Transteam Gun & Steam Blade

Review: Kamen Rider Build DX Transteam Gun & Steam Blade

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
So far, Kamen Rider Build has been a great series and its toys have been fairly solid. Items like the Build Driver and DX Full Bottle sets being the best the toy line has to offer and the weapons, so far, being mediocre. Nothing egregiously bad but just nothing noteworthy, UNTIL NOW! The Transteam Gun is the transformation device of Night Rogue and Blood Stark (I won't call him Stalk) and it is the best weapon of the line easily. The gun is a tad small but in fairness it looks small in Gentoku's hands in the show as well so I'll let that slide. The detail is fantastic, the gun fire sounds are satisfying and can be fired as fast or as slow as the user wants. You also get the DX Bat Full Bottle with this set, which can be inserted into the Transteam Gun for transformation into Night Rog...
