(Kyoryu) Brave New World Tokusatsu hero shows, and the worldwide fandom surrounding them, have changed greatly over the past fifteen years. Beyond genre, beyond formula, beyond character archetypes, beyond even cinematography and direction, the greatest way that change has manifested is cross-pollination. Super Sentai—in its original, unedited form—currently gets official DVD releases in the West. GARO went from a pet project known only to the hardcore, to a running franchise and a mainstay event for one of the biggest MMOs in the world. Kamen Rider has radically reinvented itself several times tonally, and Ultraman is finally getting significant amounts of love by way of behemoth streaming service Crunchyroll.  Meanwhile, more and more properties are adopting the "live-action...

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...
