N.Y. Maxman is gearing up for another pass. The third in the Maxman comedy action series, continuing their trend of hiring basically everyone you've ever seen in any recent Kamen Rider and Super Sentai production known to man, had its film festival debut in April 2017. Now, the tokusatsu superhero send-up returns to Japanese theaters next month, offering another chance for fans of the subgenre to see some of their recent favorites on the big screen.
For the unfamiliar, the series began in 2015 with Mr. Maxman, starring Chiba Yudai aka angelic warrior GoseiRed of Tensou Sentai Goseiger as a sad sack news presenter who just can't catch a break, until he discovers a pair of glasses that give him amazing powers. The 2017 sequel Bros. Maxman, as the name implies, follows Maxman's brother i...
Kamen Rider Build's 5th Best Match is the Flying Monotone! RocketPanda! This form is, unsurprisingly, made from the Rocket Full Bottle and the Panda Full Bottle. Panda is done up in a translucent white plastic and creates a cute image of a panda face. On the other hand, Rocket uses a light, almost sky blue color to differentiate itself from the other blue bottles, Tank and Diamond. It features the image of a rocket ship about to take off, complete with billowing smoke on the bottom, motion lines and some cool perspective work. Ultimately, these are 2 more solid Full Bottles and fans of Build are definitely gonna want them for their collections.

Well, if there is one thing to complain about with the Kamen Rider Build series so far, it's the toys. More specifically, the role play weapons (and the gimmick line, but we've been over that already). The Drill Crusher was underwhelming but it did come with a Full Bottle making it feel like a decent purchase. Then the Hawkgatlinger abandoned the Full Bottle gimmick and while it wasn't offensively bad it was far from a "must own" toy. Now we have the 4 Koma Ninpoutou aka the Ninja Art-Invoking Four-frame Ninja Sword and its name is the longest thing about it.
The sword itself I think is a cool concept, combining a pen and a sword making a pretty sweet weapon in the show, but as a toy it ends up being more pen than sword. If I haven't made my point clear enough yet, this thing is tiny...
Kamen Rider Build's 3rd Full Bottle collectible set is that of Ninja and Comic. A bright purple and yellow duo, these two combine to give Sento his Ninnin Comic form. There's not much more to say, they're standard Full Bottles. The sculpted detail is nice, the sounds effects are solid and the price is highly affordable and super wallet friendly. If you like the Full Bottle gimmick, you'll like Ninnin Comic. Now, please enjoy my review for the Stealthy Entertainer! Yeeeeeeeah!
