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

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

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

Blog, 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, 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...

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where it's nice to be getting back into Rider again following it's one year hiatus after the end of Ex-Ai...huh? "Build"? What do you mean "Build?" What on Earth are you talking about?! Kamen Rider Zi-O, Episode 02 “Best Match 2017” Geiz continues to attack Sougo (Zi-O) but his finishing move is intercepted by Tsukuyomi. Sougo activates a Ride Watch that changes into his bike, and uses it to flee from the area. Geiz summons his own bike and quickly gives chase, but Sougo manages to hide and Geiz continues off down the road and away from him. While Geiz confronts Tsukuyomi for interfering with his assassination, Sougo once again encounters Woz. He explains that the Time Jackers intend on changing the timeline so that someone else becomes Oma Zi-

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where it's time to say goodbye to Kamen Rider Build. Kamen Rider Build, Episode 49 “The World Build Created” Despite the reservations of his inner Katsuragi, Sento (Build) resolves to rescue Ryuga (Cross-Z) from the void between the worlds. Misora initially protests but lets him go. Sento travels into the opening to find himself on a beach, with Ryuga laying face down on the sand. Ryuga's eyes glow red and he attacks Sento, before transforming into Evolt. Evolt declares that he has absorbed Ryuga and intends to do the same to Sento. Sento must beat him and release his internal energy, otherwise the dimensions will not merge correctly and both will be destroyed, though Evolt believes that absorbing Sento will repair his Evolt Trigger and allow him

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where broken helmet scenes will always be cool! This week's episode of Kamen Rider Build brings evens to a head, as the Riders begin their final battle to defeat Evolt and forge a new world while citizens cheer them on. The Lupinrangers face another difficult challenge in Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger  as Umika's father comes to ensure that her birthday celebration consists of more than just eating pudding. Things come to a close for Build next week as the final episode airs. Will they announce a "Returns" special immediately after the episode as they did for the previous two series, or will it be a true finale (well...before Sento and Ryuga appear again in the next series)? It also seems that the Patrangers will get some ex

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where sometimes we have to cover the far extremes of the tokusatsu world at the same time. This week's episode of Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger is going way out into the "fun and campy" end of things, even by Super Sentai standards. Keep your eyes out for the middle aged backing dancer wearing a sparkly silver thong over their leotard. Meanwhile, Kamen Rider Build promised us death before it's one week hiatus and it's going to milk this tragedy for everything it's worth. Farewell Kazumi. You will be missed...assuming that you aren't somehow resurrected for the next crossover movie. Which kind of episode do you enjoy more? Do you like it when they present them both together or would you prefer it if they didn't pair a sad epi...

How many time puns can one blogger cram into the span of a few weeks? Guess we'll find out, as the pink carpet gets rolled out for the newest hero in the ongoing Kamen Rider super-saga from Toei Company. Kamen Rider Zi-O is time-slipping his way up and down the last twenty seasons of this illustrious franchise, mixing it up with the heroes and villains of Japan's Heisei Era, and god help you if you didn't pack a fire extinguisher. As previously mentioned, Zi-O is the 20th official Heisei Rider series, and they're pulling out all the stops on this nostalgic extravaganza, sure to bring back fond memories (and other stuff maybe) from the show's lengthy history. Naturally, the star of the show is young enough that he was only alive to know some of these guys and basically nothing of the s...

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where heroes can only survive by working together. It's a lesson that both phantom thieves and global police must reluctantly learn this week in Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger as Lymon gives the first demonstration as to what the higher ranked, golden safe owning Ganglers can really do. Meanwhile in Kamen Rider Build the main problem every Rider has is always attempting to carry their burdens alone and it seems that the ghosts of Grease's past have come back to haunt him and set up a big cliffhanger. And it is indeed a cliffhanger because there will be no episode of Kamen Rider Build this coming week. It's being bumped for the televised opening ceremony of a nation-wide Japanese high school baseball championship. We will, h
