Summary of Zi-O SG Watcher: Vol.39


Summary of Zi-O SG Watcher: Vol.39

From the archive of Bandai’s candy toy blog series for Kamen Rider Zi-O, with the reveal of all the features for Kai SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O.

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.

Kai SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O was previously revealed as a special set featuring Zi-O, Geiz and Woz with exclusive changes. Previously, the blog put emphasis on the fact that they will have RideWatch stickers – a sheet is included which has every one of the Heisei Rider watches, along with Woz’s MirideWatches.
In this set of images, they also clarify that paint is being used for various parts that previously used stickers.

An additional feature for this set are Rider Kick-specific foot attachments, depicting the bottom of the feet and the “Kick” written on it. These make use of the existing display stand peghole.

Another new feature is the use of clear parts in the visor, with a clear portion in the back of the helmet to allow light to travel though it and light up the visor. It should be clarified that this is not an electronic light-up gimmick.

Each Rider includes the standard display stand, and pair of fists and open hands. Zi-O specifically also comes with a pair of pointing hands for his pose, as well as the Zikan Girade in both its modes. Meanwhile, Geiz has the chop hands included with his WizardArmor form, as well as the Zikan Zax in both its modes.

Woz features the Zikan Despear in its three modes, as well as a new spear part that is longer and more accurate to how it looks in the show.

The Kai SO-DO set is an exclusive to Aeon Group stores.
