The Kamen Rider franchise is getting even more generational with the latest in their series of movies based on the ongoing action hero franchise, Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FOREVER. And here's the poster to prove it. As previously mentioned, they keep trying to end this Heisei Era, but something's always standing in the way. A gaggle of heroes from recent (and not-so-recent) years in the Rider saga are returning for one last (lol) battle to save the world from evil. A new poster has been unveiled, to give you a taste of the combat to come. Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FOREVER hits theaters December 22, 2018.   You might also like: This New POWER RANGERS Cereal Wants in Your Mouth Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER ZI-O DX Faiz, Hibiki, Kabuto, Den-O Ride Watches, Faiz Phone...

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...

It's that time again. The 20th entry in the Heisei Era's official Kamen Rider television series franchise is quickly approaching, and ahead of it comes a flood of new images and bits of information from which to glean early opinions. And as we feast our eyes on the new Kamen Rider Zi-O, we wonder what the future may hold for this enduring brand. And the future is very much on the minds of the show's creative forces, as the new series lead will be a time traveler, utilizing powers inspired by the heroes who came before him in the Heisei Era, which comes to an end with this incoming project. As the clock imagery in the title logo implies, this is a watch-themed hero, who changes forms based on the timepieces inserted into his henshin belt, accessing various transformations that will ...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD S.H.Figuarts Blood Stark & Kamen Rider Cross-Z

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD S.H.Figuarts Blood Stark & Kamen Rider Cross-Z

Blog, Kamen Rider, Toku, Toys
Two SH Figuarts items were produced in the main toy release line for the Kamen Rider Build TV series, those being Build himself and the villainous Night Rogue. Now, despite these two figures sharing a lot of the same pieces, Blood Stark and Cross-Z, unfortunately, are Premium Bandai Web Exclusives. Let's start with the negatives right now, because the absolute worst thing about these figures are their prices (Well, Blood Stark's neck joint is also loose, but it's acceptable). As previously mentioned, these two figures have a lot of parts that are similar to those in past releases, but their price point is double just because they're Premium Bandai. This is going to be a huge deterrent for a lot of fans, and rightfully so, since the figures don't come with enough to justify this huge s...
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...

Here's what's happening in the upcoming movie theater releases for the latest series in Toei's ongoing Kamen Rider and Super Sentai tokusatsu franchises. In the team-based Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger en filme, a man of mystery will appear, whose job description and appearance bare a striking resemblance to the famous literary detective Sherlock Holmes. The two feuding factions of thieves and police officers may have their hands full when he is on the case. Meanwhile, Kamen Rider Build: Be The One returns genius freedom fighter Sento and his brother-in-arms Ryuuga to battle while Kamen Rider Blood Stalk threatens all they hold dear before they can decide, once and for all, who will "Be The One", as the television theme song tells us. The life of a friend, ...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 9

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 9

Blog, Kamen Rider, Toku, toku, Toys
Kamen Rider Build's 9th SODO set features 4 figures again and, like the last set, one of them is from Kamen Rider Ex-Aid's Another Ending Trilogy. First up, we have 2 Best Matches from Hokuto and Seito, they are RoseHelicopter and ToraUFO. These are pretty standard figures for Build's SODO line, but of course this isn't a bad thing. These figures have great paint, articulation, and detail on them. The amount of stickers is reasonable and the swapping ability is still present. Next up, we have a retool of Kamen Rider Paradox from Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. I never owned any figures from Ex-Aids SODO line but, as far as I can tell, this version of Paradox is identical, minus the coat tail pieces, and the plastic is molded in black and grey instead of Paradox's signature red and blue. His stick...

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 S.H.Figuarts Night Rogue

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD S.H.Figuarts Night Rogue

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys
Kamen Rider Build has been lucky enough to have 2 regular SH Figuarts releases, with a 3rd to come in June. Here we have Night Rogue, the first major antagonist of the series. Holy crap, this figure is beautiful. Build was a good figure but his design is very simple. In contrast, Night Rogue is complex and far more intricate. The detailing is just superb and the articulation  doesn't suffer one bit for any of that. The paint is on point too, he even has glowing yellow eyes that can be seen under his bat visor when you look closely. The accessories are great as well. He comes with the Transtream Gun and Steam Blade, both are accurate to the show and look great on their own but can even combine into the rifle mode for an even cooler look. At the end of the day, I have absolutely zero negat
