Review: Kamen Rider Build SODO Figures Wave 3

Kamen Rider Build goes 3 for 3 with its SODO toy line, hitting yet another home run. This set is the first one where I highly recommend getting a case, since you will need duplicates. This set consists of 3 and a half figures: Build LionShoubosha form, KeyDragon form, half of Cross-Z and Blood Stark (I still refuse to call him Stalk). Both Cross-Z and KeyDragon require Build's Dragon half to be complete, so to have both figures proudly displayed in your collection, you're gonna need 2 Dragon boxes. Luckily, cases come with 3, so you'll even have an extra, just in case. All the figures are beautifully articulated and the stickers are fantastic.

By pressing the "call" button you can get various lines of dialogue from lead character Sento. Not much more to say about the phone mode, it's a phone. Transformation is simple enough and kinda show-accurate. It folds out like it does in the show but obviously the model in the show is repl...

I was determined not to come back with another Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger review that talked predominately about lead character Lucky, but it seems my fate was written in the constellations. This show, about a team of futuristic space trekkers boldly going up against the Jark Matter Empire, quickly became a new favorite for me, winning me over with its adventurous theme, great characters, and fun ideas. To this day, my feelings in that regard have not changed. Though I suppose I've squished those sentiments into a tiny side pocket now that the show has so aggressively pursued one of Super Sentai's worst habits: Putting an inordinate amount of attention onto the dude in red. The luckiest liberator in the whole wide universe is not only the unofficially official leader of this enormous team...
