The Complete Selection Modification Hopper Zecter marks the 15th entry in Bandai’s Complete Selection Modification line, a series of high end Kamen Rider “henshin” or transformation belts promoted for adults. The Hopper Zecter is the transformation belt of Kamen Rider KickHopper and Kamen Rider PunchHopper from the 2006-2007 Kamen Rider Kabuto series.
1st Point, the shape of the belt is re-made to fit the Rider suit style. The Zect buckle is die-cast to create the texture and the heaviness of the belt. Details on the belt part is made so it’s close to the original. The Zect Buckle is also utilized by Kamen Rider TheBee, Kamen Rider Drake and Kamen Rider Sasword in the Kamen Rider Kabuto series.
2nd Point, Clock Up installed. The Clock Up sound effect is played by pressing the switch on the buckle just like how the Riders did in the series. 「CLOCK UP」&「Activate sound effect」&「CLOCK OVER」 are recorded.

Approximately 90 different lines are newly recorded by Yaguruma Sou ( Tokuyama Hidenori) and Kageyama Shun (Uchiyama Masato). The lines change before and after Transforming.
Before transformation: 1. Kageyama Shun: “HAHAHAHAHAHA!! It’s only you! Who actually looked at me…” Yaguruma Sou: “Let’s walk together. Into the darkness with no goal.”
After transformation(KickHopper): “There is no more Perfect or Harmony anymore…”, “Let me get laughed at too”, after transformation (PunchHopper): “I’m also destroyed into pieces….”, “Big bro, let’s just do this guy”
