Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 7

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...

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

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...

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 6

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
Kamen Rider Build's 6th entry into the SODO line continues to  add new Riders to the mix, along with a movie exclusive/ganbarizing form and upgrade forms for the show's characters. First, let's start with Kamen Rider Grease. This figure looks great and (unsurprisingly) uses a lot of similar pieces and ideas from the Cross Charge figure from wave 5. Next, we have my personal least favorite figure, Doctor Game form. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with this figure. The sculpt, the articulation, the paint and the stickers are all well done, but I just don't like the look of the form aesthetically. Now, supposedly this form was briefly seen in the last Heisei Generations movie before giving Kamen Rider Build a form resembling Kamen Rider Ex-Aid (though, at this point in tim...

Well, I'll be a dead monkey's bloody uncle. If you haven't yet caught up on the legend in the making that is the Kamen Rider Build television series, I forgive your mistake. Since it exploded onto the scene a few months ago, it gave the impression that it was telling its story a bit differently from its predecessors in the long-running action hero franchise. It had a way with character, world-building, and general tone that set itself apart from the rest, and that only becomes more apparent as the surprisingly dramatic, strikingly creative series spins on. Especially when it comes to its dynamic portrayal of the villains in the series, the exploration of which can sometimes feel as complicated and rich as how it treats its many heroic figures. Which brings us to the current GOAT of th...

Here's a little something to jam to while waiting for your next fix when it comes to the heroes of the tokusatsu world. From Kamen Rider to Super Sentai to Power Rangers, Youtuber Studio Megaane has been delivering one nostalgic twist after another on the special-effects shows we at Henshin Justice Unlimited hold most dear. Plus quite a few other titles both of the live-action and animated variety. Studio Megaane creates music tracks in the style of old school 8-bit video games, generating a unique sound not to be duplicated, especially for those of us who fondly remember the days when this was pretty much all you had when mashing buttons and cursing the incredibly difficult games of the era. You haven't known true struggle until you've been felled by your hundredth accidental landing...
Toy Review: S.H.Figuarts KAMEN RIDER BUILD

Toy Review: S.H.Figuarts KAMEN RIDER BUILD

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, toku, Toys
S.H.Figuarts are known for making the best Kamen Rider figures on the market and the current entry in the television franchise is no exception. Kamen Rider Build Rabbit Tank Form is beautifully crafted here in sleek and shiny red and blue plastic with mat black underneath. Topping him off are his gorgeous red and blue compound eyes that, of course, emulate a rabbit and tank. His articulation is 100% what you expect from a figure of this quality and brand, though the head is slightly limited by his design. As for accessories, Build is pretty light, having only 5 hands to swap between, he doesn't come with any weapons or effect parts. While this is a bit of a bummer, it's hard to be too mad at the figure. It's a regular release SHF (which is rare nowadays) and it's incredibly cheap, beat...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 5

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 5

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
SODO set 5 makes a huge comeback after the lackluster set 4 for the Kamen Rider Build series. We have the return to form with 3 full figures (4 if you count the re-release of Night Rogue but I already have him from set 2 so we'll only be focusing on the new figures). First up, we have PhoenixRobo and RabbitTank Sparkling. These guys are fairly standard figures, though that's not a bad thing. Both have excellent detail, articulation, roughly the same amount of stickers, and they both maintain the body swap gimmick. Build's Sparkling form only has one slight deviation from the norm, being a fully painted face that is also one solid piece unable to split up while the rest of him can. Cross Charge, however, is a completely new type of figure to this line. Also split into 2 boxes, Cros...

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Hazard Trigger, Smartphone Wolf & Unicorn Eraser Full Bottle Sets

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Hazard Trigger, Smartphone Wolf & Unicorn Eraser Full Bottle Sets

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
The new power-up item introduced in the Kamen Rider Build TV series is the Hazard Trigger. This device allows Build to access his Hazard mode as well as utilize other forms later on down the line. The toy itself is pretty cool, turning already existing "Best Matches" into "Super Best Matches" and adding an awesome guitar effect, among others. This item is similar to the Cross Dragon or Rabbit Tank Sparkling in that it tries to make sounds in tandem with the Driver but it does not work well with the aforementioned items, only your basic Full Bottles. That being said, the henshin is the same despite the bottles used and the Hazard Trigger then offers the user 3 different attacks. The Hazard Attack by cranking the handle, the Overflow by pressing the button on the Hazard Trigger again, and ...
