Summary of Zi-O SG Watcher: Vol.37


Summary of Zi-O SG Watcher: Vol.37

From the archive of Bandai’s candy toy blog series for Kamen Rider Zi-O, with the reveal of Kamen Rider WozGinga for SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O: RIDE 10.

The man currently in charge of candy toy development goes by G, and in honor of Zi-O, he is now going by the name Gi-O.

“Gin-Gin Gira-Gira Galaxy!”

“An astronomical fantasy!”

“WozGinga Finaly-Finaly!”

The blog post reveals Kamen Rider Woz’s strongest form, WozGinga Finaly, as part of SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O: RIDE 10.

The blog goes on to show closeups of the stickers, which depict all of the planets. The BeyonDriver is also highlighted as it features a new mold with the Ginga MirideWatch in place.

The main talking point of the post is the cape used with this form, and how it makes use of PVC (soft plastic) instead of ABS (hard plastic). By using PVC, it is much more flexible for poses.

“Woz’s cloak is worth millions of yen!”

Gi-O goes on to explain that there are demerits to the use of PVC parts. Separate molds are required for making PVC parts, which can cost millions of yen to produce. They made this decision for sake of movability.

Also included with WozGinga are the subforms TaiyoForm and WakuseiForm. These are presented as alternate heads, with the sticker sheet providing alternate stickers for the one display stand.

WozGinga will be taking up slots 3 and 4 for RIDE 10. Those seeking to display all three forms would need to buy multiples of both sets.
