Tamashii-Nations-Kamen-Rider-Baron-Sukia-Arms

As Tamashii Nations 2014 continues we’re seeing more and more items that were on display earlier in the show but under a photo ban. Well no more for at least two figures. In a pair of images released by the Tamashii Features twitter account we have an official reveal of S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Marika and S.H. Figuarts Suika Arms (Kamen Rider Baron Version)!

Both look absolutely stunning. These figures were present in the blurry image of the rather large and awesome Kamen Rider Gaim display we reported on Thursday. There are still quite a few figures reported to be in the same display actually like Jam, Mars, Kamuro, etc. As we get pics for more of them we’ll update you!

Kikaider Reboot DVD

After a somewhat lackluster reception in Japan and a surprising (yet limited) theatrical release in North America, the Kikaider Reboot film will now be coming to DVD with official subtitles for US audiences!

Kikaider Reboot’s DVD is currently scheduled for release in December 2014. No details regarding price or range of availability are available at this time. Stay tuned to TokuNation as we keep you up to date on this heroic reboot!

Drive Episode 0

When the Kamen Rider Drive & Gaim Movie War Full Throttle film hits theaters there’s going to be a bonus for movie goers. When you purchase tickets for this film in Japan you’ll be given a free (while supplies last) Kamen Rider Drive Episode 0: Countdown to Global Freeze DVD Special!

This special, as the name implies, will take place before the series proper begins. The primary focus of this episode will be the day the Global Freeze happened and how that affected the world and characters we know. We’ll also see the initial Roidmudes that were subsequently destroyed by the other character spotlighted in this special, Kamen Rider Proto Drive! 

And the recently revealed Kamen Rider Drive Secret Mission: Hunter & Monster will be included with the January issue of Televi-Kun. This special focuses on a feud between the Massive Monster & Justice Hunter Shift cars while the phantom thief Ultimate Lupin is involved in a high profile kidnapping case! And if you are unable to obtain the Episode 0 DVD have no fear, the Type Televi-Kun Special includes it as well!

 

SH Figuarts Kamen Rider Zangetsu Shin 001

Who likes soda? Who are we kidding – we’re a collective fan community made up of people who watch subtitled tokusatsu shows online and enjoy (and at times cringe through) Power Rangers – OF COURSE WE LIKE SODA! And if you don’t, you might want to make an exception for this soda – our gallery and review of S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Zangetsu Shin – Melon Energy Arms!

This “powered-up” or “final” form of the Kamen Rider Zangetsu character was the first of many (and we mean many) Tamashii Web Exclusives for the S.H. Figuarts line of figures from Kamen Rider Gaim and as you can tell by the pictures – it doesn’t disappoint!

Check out over 40 pictures as well as our review for S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Zangetsu Shin – Melon Energy Arms by clicking here! Sound off in the discussion thread – did you get this figure? What are your thoughts? And if not, are you planning to pick it up when you can?

Tamashii Naitons 2014 Gaim Display

As is usual with these larger Tamashii events there’s a photo ban in place on a select group of items at Tamashii Nations 2014. For whatever reasons there’s always a selection of figures at these thing you just can’t take pictures of. Generally they’re off in their own areas of the show but eventually someone sneaks camera shots of what’s in there. For now at least there are no pictures or at least no decent ones of quite a few more things than we realized.

Before the show began Bandai aired a 30 minute livestream video in which a slideshow contained images of the Gaim & Drive displays. But thus far that’s all we had to go on. The list below confirms much of what could be made out in those images and includes several more we were unaware of. Here’s the full rundown of what IS at the show but can’t be photographed:

Updated with at least 1 image from the Kamen Rider Gaim display!

Kamen Rider
S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Drive Type Speed
S.H. Figuarts Tridoron & Drive Tire Sets
S.H. Figuarts Machine Chaser
S.H. Figuarts Ride Chaser

That so far is all the yet to be pictured items that we know are physically at the show. That’s quite a lot of stuff. Frankly the grainy images we have seen show that the Gaim & Drive displays are huge and full of figures, really great set pieces. It would seem silly for the photo ban on those sets up to last through out the show. And the two additional Metal Heroes would be welcome among the numerous other fresh reveals yesterday. We’ll keep you posted if images for anything on this list turn up from the event.

Lets Watch Wednesdays All Stars

Our journey with Kamen Rider Den-O ended last week and it’s time to finalize the community choice for our next segment. As we announced a few weeks ago the poll to decide the next Let’s Watch Wednesdays exclusively features 5 Power Rangers seasons as choices!

Voting has been pretty intense so far and our two front runners are currently tied. Voting to decide our next segment will remain open through Friday October 31st (Happy Halloween!) at 11:59 PM. At that time the show with the most votes will be our new segment set to begin next Wednesday November 5th.

Click discuss on the TokuNation Forums at the bottom of this post to be taken to our poll thread. There you’ll be able to choose from the 5 following options!

  • Power Rangers In Space
  • Power Rangers Zeo
  • Power Rangers Time Force
  • Power Rangers Jungle Fury
  • Power Rangers Lost Galaxy

Obviously with no new show chosen as of today there is not a new Let’s Watch Discussion to be posted. But perhaps use this time to catch up on those last couple of Den-O movies we had at the end, or get your regular weekly toku fix of Ressha Sentai ToQger & Kamen Rider Drive!

Kamen Rider Drive Type Wild 01

Revealed over the weekend today brings us some new in depth scans of Kamen Rider Drive’s upcoming second form, Type Wild!

A primarily black form, Type Wild swaps the the Tire Koukan gimmick out to it’s right shoulder. 3 new Tires will also be introduced along with Wild; Wrecking Hooker, Mad Doctor, & Rumble Dump! These new scans give us a taste of what each new tire looks like and a better look at the slick black police deco that Type Wild sports.

A handful of additional movie scans from the Gaim X Drive Movie War Full Throttle are also included showing off Kamen Riders Lupin, and Proto-Drive.
