Bandai’s candy toy blog posted a new entry for Kamen Rider Zi-O, with the last addition to SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O: RIDE 8 and a look into the future of SO-DO Chronicle.
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.
To begin, the blog post provides a list of things coming out in April:
- April 1st: Kamen Rider Battle Ganbarizing Choco Wafers: RiderTime 3
- April 8th: Kamen Rider Zi-O Arms 2
- April 29th: SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O: RIDE 8 Feat. SO-DO Kamen Rider Build
With that, Di-O shares something Premium Bandai related that he’s been looking forward to introducing…
“Inheriting the power of all Riders, over time and space, the king of the past and future!”
“His name is Kamen Rider Zi-O, and this is the moment of his birth!”
The statue of Sogo Tokiwa, which was seen in the year 2068, has now been given an actual release. It will be available from Premium Bandai.
Apart from being a highly detailed statue, it will also feature drybrushed dirt to give it shading and texture.
While you can just purchase the statue for the sake of displaying it on its own, the scale is intentionally comparable to SO-DO, making it an excellent display piece for the figures.
The Premium Bandai details can be found here. The next blog update will be on April 7th.
