Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Genius Full Bottle

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Genius Full Bottle

Blog, Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
The lead hero of Kamen Rider Build has reached his final Genius Form. And, to attain that form, Sento needs the Genius Full Bottle. The DX Genius Full Bottle is a great final toy for the line. It's simple, but it comes with all the functions you'd expected, and it looks and sounds pretty sweet. On its own, the the toy looks similar in size and shape to the DX Sparkling Can. It does, however, have a new color scheme and mirror in the center for a cool light-up effect when activated in the driver. On its own, the DX Genius Full Bottle has a button that you can press to activate the "turn on" sound effect. From there, continually pressing the button will cycle through Sento's voice saying some of his classic catchphrases until you cycle back to the "turn on" sound again. Inserting the to...

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Evol Trigger

Blog, Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
Kamen Rider Evol gets an upgrade in a very similar way to the star of his show. This results in similar toys yet again for the Kamen Rider Build series, though that might not be such a bad thing. The DX Evol Trigger here is a huge improvement on the previously reviewed DX Hazard Trigger. Pressing the button and inserting it into the DX Evol Driver gives you the "Revolution" sound effect with the new jingle for Black Hole form. Furthermore, in this state, you get a new attack, the "Black Hole Attack". A second button-press gives you the "Fever Flow", obviously similar to the "Overflow" from the previous version of the toy. Lastly, this toy gives you the option for the "Black Hole Finish" and the "Black Hole Break" for its final sound effects. Overall, it's a very simple toy and complem...

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Evol Driver, DX Rabbit & Dragon Evol Bottles, DX Bat Engine Full Bottle Set

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
Kamen Rider Evolt has appeared in the last act of the Kamen Rider Build TV series, and of course a new Rider means new gear, so lets take a look at it all. First up, we have the DX Evol Driver, basically a repaint of the DX Build Driver, but with new sounds and a few fresh parts. All of the unique sound effects are fantastic and a vast improvement on the old Driver toy. It's able to read every single collectible Full Bottle too (as seen in the second video), though it does read them differently than the DX Build Driver, so that keeps things fresh. The set comes with our first two Evol Bottles, Cobra and Rider System. With these, you're able to make Evol's base form. The form gives you a henshin jingle and finishing attack, the Evol Finish. Any non-Best Match gives you the Evol Attack ...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 8

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 8

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

Blog, 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

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

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...
