Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER ZI-O DX Faiz, Hibiki, Kabuto, Den-O Ride Watches, Faiz Phone & Ride Watch Dizer

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER ZI-O DX Faiz, Hibiki, Kabuto, Den-O Ride Watches, Faiz Phone & Ride Watch Dizer

Blog, Henshin Justice Unlimited, Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
Kamen Rider Zi-O's gimmick continues on strong with 4 new entries. Our first one is for Kamen Rider Geiz, the Faiz Ride Watch, then the next 3 for Zi-O being Kabuto, Hibiki and Den-O Ride Watches. These all function the same as the Ride Watches of the past. Bottom line: if you like the gimmick as a whole, the sounds these toys make, or the Rider they represent, then you're going to like these toys. https://youtu.be/-HjGpuylB-c https://youtu.be/Wh7bvYNHHb0 https://youtu.be/_7ZUIQmRfLY Den-O is the only one that comes with a stipulation that the buyer may or may not be okay with. Den-O's Ride Watch is in a set with the DX Ride Watch Dizer. It's basically this year's version of the Pandora Panel from Kamen Rider Build but with less story significance. Either way, it nearly doubles the a...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER ZI-O DX Fourze Ride Watch & RKF Ghost / Ex-Aid Armor

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER ZI-O DX Fourze Ride Watch & RKF Ghost / Ex-Aid Armor

Henshin Justice Unlimited, Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
The latest collectible toy for the Kamen Rider Zi-O series is the DX Fourze Ride Watch. As far as Ride Watches go, it's right in line with the rest. Multiple sound effects based on button presses, a henshin jingle and a finisher sound. Overall, if you are like me and absolutely love this gimmick line, this is another fantastic entry. https://youtu.be/QnTAfxPTkuE The RKF (Rider Kicks Figure) line isn't slowing down either with 2 new releases at once: the Ghost Armor and the Ex-Aid Armor. Ex-Aid has by far the coolest armor as well as this gimmick still standing strong as one of the better gimmick lines we've seen. Ghost has some added perks as well. Not only is it just as good as the other 2 armor sets but this one comes with some bonus accessories for both Kamen Rider Zi-O and Kamen Ri...
Toy Review: Rider Kicks Figure (RKF) KAMEN RIDER ZI-O, Geiz, Build & Build Armor

Toy Review: Rider Kicks Figure (RKF) KAMEN RIDER ZI-O, Geiz, Build & Build Armor

Henshin Justice Unlimited, Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
Kamen Rider Zi-O is releasing a gimmick line of figures. This is no surprise, as every Rider series has one, but Zi-O is striving to be different. The Rider Kicks Figure (RKF) line feels more like discount Figuarts than a standard gimmick line, and that is definitely a good thing for the fans. Zi-O and Geiz are strong first entries into the line. Both have fantastic articulation, decent accessory counts (Zi-O has one alternate hand and they both have a weapon, though only in one of their 2 forms), and they have reasonable paint for their price. The only downside, as far as I can see, is the size. The RKF line has been sized down to something closer to America's Power Rangers Ninja Steel action figures rather than scaling with past gimmick lines or even Figuarts. I will say, however, that...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER ZI-O DX Kamen Rider Drive, Ex-Aid, Ryuki Ride Watches & DX Zikan Girade

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER ZI-O DX Kamen Rider Drive, Ex-Aid, Ryuki Ride Watches & DX Zikan Girade

Blog, Henshin Justice Unlimited, Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
The Kamen Rider Zi-O series continues to release more and more toy collectibles with the DX Ride Watches for Kamen Rider Drive, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, and Kamen Rider Ryuki. These function exactly the same as previously seen DX Ride Watches, but with the added flair of the respective Rider. It's also worth noting that this is the first time we can see official images of Zi-O's Ryuki Armor Time form but also we do not get an alternative for Kamen Rider Geiz nor do we see a Kamen Rider Zi-O version of the Drive Armor. Anyway, if you're like me and loving the Ride Watch gimmick, then by all means snag these while you can. They're great additions to anyone's collection. https://youtu.be/kXsKqc7au0E https://youtu.be/CPZ4YXnuOIE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoS96g99MOI&feature=youtu.be ...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER ZI-O DX Geiz, Ghost, Build Ride Watches & Holder

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER ZI-O DX Geiz, Ghost, Build Ride Watches & Holder

Blog, Henshin Justice Unlimited, Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
Kamen Rider Zi-O is releasing toys at an insane rate. Ride Watches are coming out literally every week and I plan on covering them all. Here we have the DX Build, Geiz, and Ghost Ride Watches and the DX Ride Watch Holder. All the Ride Watches function relatively the same way. The Kamen Rider's symbol and series year are displayed on the face. Rotating that frame reveals the face of Kamen Riders Geiz, Build, or Ghost. They all have a singular button that can be pressed to activate the sounds. The first press is the Rider's name, the second is a tagline for the Rider in Japanese, of course, and Geiz gets a third line that summons the Time Machine. This third line is specific to Zi-O's series and is identical and exclusive to Geiz and Zi-O. All three Ride Watches can be placed into ei...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER ZI-O DX Ziku Driver

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER ZI-O DX Ziku Driver

Blog, Henshin Justice Unlimited, Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
The Heisei Era is coming to a close and Kamen Rider is celebrating with its latest anniversary season, Kamen Rider Zi-O. Now the first batch of Zi-O merch has had some issues. A lot of sites were understocked and fans are having a tough time getting their hands on these toys, but I assure you, if you do, you are in for one hell of a treat! The DX Ziku Driver is fantastic on all accounts. The toy comes in one of two sets. This set is the most basic one, which includes simply the Driver, belt straps, and the DX Zi-O Ride Watch. The Ride Watch itself is a nice weighty handful of a gimmick. The face can rotate to reveal either Zi-O's symbol and debut year or it can display an image of his face. The single button on top will shuffle through 3 sounds unique to each Rider's Ride Watch. The Z...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 8

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 8

Henshin Justice Unlimited, Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys, Uncategorized
Kamen Rider Build's 8th SODO toy line entry comes with a little surprise. First off, as expected, we have RabbitRabbit and TankTank forms. These are great figures and use the same gimmick we've seen throughout the Build line. Even though it's not show-accurate, you can create a "Super" RabbitTank form, if you will. Articulation, detail, and stickers are all standard and these guys just look fantastic on the shelf. The twist, however, is that this time around, we get 2 new figures from Kamen Rider Ex-Aid's Another Ending movies. These figures are Kamen Rider Genmu Level Billion and Kamen Rider Lazer Level X. For me, these are brand new figures, but for those of you who were into SODO during Ex-Aid's run, you'll recognize these as repaints/re-stickered versions of Ex-Aid Level 99 and La...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX KirinCyclone, PenguinSkater, HachiMarine, SaiDryer, & SameBike Full Bottle Sets

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX KirinCyclone, PenguinSkater, HachiMarine, SaiDryer, & SameBike Full Bottle Sets

Blog, Henshin Justice Unlimited, Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys, Uncategorized
Kamen Rider Build continues to release some of its last DX Full Bottle toy sets and here we have the latest 4 standard pairings, along with a special one. In release order, we have the DX KirinCyclone set, DX PenguinSkater set, DX HachiMarine set, and DX SaiDryer set. These 4 are regular release items for your standard Full Bottle price and functionality. The forms shown range from ones we've seen in action, to Ganbarising exclusive, to unknown. Overall, if you like the form or the jingle, I recommend these DX sets. Our last set, however, is a unique one - the DX SameBike set. This item comes with a DVD copy of Kamen Rider Build: Raising the Hazard Level 7 Best Matches. This is unfortunate because the DVD drives the price up to around 5 times that of a standard Full Bottle set, but the a...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Cross-Z Magma Knuckle

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Cross-Z Magma Knuckle

Henshin Justice Unlimited, Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
Kamen Rider Cross gets his next and final upgrade form in the Kamen Rider Build TV series with this device, the DX Magma Knuckle. The Knuckle itself functions very similarly to the DX Cross Dragon, requiring the insertion of a Full Bottle and all. The toy comes with the DX Dragon Magma Full Bottle, though it's missing the insert piece that allows for the shaking gimmick and it reads as simply "Dragon" in all other Build toys. The knuckle itself is a fantastic size, fitting even a large adult hand. It has a button on the front that can be pressed or held down to make fire sound effects and, when a bottle is inserted, the sounds change to the "Volcanic Knuckle" attack. That's about it for the toy on its own. For the next step, we'll need to add the DX Build Driver. Inserting the Knuckle in...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Tora UFO, Shika Pyramid, Kujira Jet, & Wizard Orange Full Bottle Sets

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

Henshin Justice Unlimited, 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...
