Bandai’s candy toy blog posted a new entry for Kamen Rider Zi-O, talking about the last addition to RIDE 2.
The man in charge of candy toy development goes by D, and in honor of Zi-O, he has changed his usual nickname to Di-O. He opens by establishing the release dates for the month:
- SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O: RIDE 1
- SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O: RIDE 1 Set
- Buttobasoul Hot Ramune
- Kamen Rider Paper ART
- Sound RideWatch Series: SG RideWatch 02
- SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O: RIDE 2
- SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O: RIDE 2 Set
As of this latest blog post, the first wave of SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O has come out. It contains Zi-O, Geiz, the BuildArmor set, and Armor Changing bodies for Zi-O and Geiz.
“ArmorTime: Complete! Faiz!”
Di-O then goes on to reveal the last addition of SO-DO’s second wave, FaizArmor – this is a form that will be used by Geiz in the upcoming episode 6.
While FaizArmor is no departure from the armors seen so far, the use of mobile phones gives him a look that stands out.
Something that may be familiar to everyone by this point is the FaizPhone X, a combination phone/gun/watch used by Tsukuyomi and Geiz. It will be included in its gun mode, which can be held by anyone using the standard fists that are made to hold items.
Also included is the Faiz Shot, which was a knuckle weapon used by Kamen Rider Faiz. It can be held in either hand.
Lastly, the Faiz Pointer, which is used by Kamen Rider Faiz to perform his Rider Kick. Here, it is an alternate shin armor piece, specifically made to go with Geiz’s Armor Changing body.
Much like armor sets before it, it comes with its own display stand. Much like DriveArmor, it is only made for Geiz to use.
With this, the second wave of SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O is complete. Like the first set, it will be available as individual boxes and as a full boxset.
“Next update will be on October 7th! Although it feels a bit early, I’ll start posting the lineup for SO-DO RIDE 3, so please look forward to that!”
