Summary of Zi-O SG Watcher: Vol.41


Summary of Zi-O SG Watcher: Vol.41

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

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.

“Advent. Complete. Turn Up.

Change: Beetle. Sword Form. Wake Up! KamenRide!

Cyclone, Joker! Taka-Tora-Batta! 3-2-1! Shabadoobie touch to transform! Soiya!

Drive! Awaken! Level Up! Best Match! RiderTime!”


“Kuuga-Agito-Ryuki, Faiz, Blaaade!

Hibiki-Kabuto-Den-O, Kiva, Decaaade!

Double, OOO, Fooourze!

Wizard, Gaim, Driiive!

Ghost, Ex-Aid, Build…!


“Kamen Rideeer… GrandZi-O!”

The figure has plentiful amounts of molded detailing, depicting all of the Heisei Riders on the suit, with stickers to add a sense of depth. The head features paint and PVC.

Included with GrandZi-O is a reprint of the Saikyou Zikan Girade from Zi-O II, but Gi-O shows the fun possibilities with this form by using weapons from several other Riders.

Gi-O also has fun displaying GrandZi-O with all of the lead Riders that have received SO-DO figures so far, as well as gold forms between Ex-Aid and Build.

With that, the lineup for SO-DO Kamen Rider Zi-O: RIDE 10 is complete, and set for a July 8th release date.

The same blog post then transitions into news for SO-DO Kamen Rider W with Mr. D, the man in charge of SO-DO Chronicle.

New photos for Kamen Rider Cyclone are revealed. This figure was previously announced as part of Ichiban Kuji’s lottery. The form is exclusive to a Kamen Rider W novel and has since appeared in S.H. Figuarts, as well as one of the console games.

Mr. D then has some fun replicating the Final FormRide Double scene from Movie Taisen 2010.

Lastly, Mr. D displays Kamen Rider Cyclone and Kamen Rider Joker in a CycloneJoker formation, and combines Cyclone with FangJoker to make what he calls Kamen Rider FangCyclone.

Mr. D hopes that fans of Philip, fans of SO-DO, and fans of SO-DO W, don’t miss out on this figure.
