In the immortal words of Woz,
“Rejoice! He is heir to the power of all riders”.
Kamen Rider Zi-O is nearing it’s end and the impending start of the Reiwa Era of Kamen Rider is on the horizon. And as this series and the Heisei Era come to an end, Tamashii Nations has just released the first of Zi-O’s power ups in figure form. S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Zi-O Build Armor is the first stepping stone along Sougo Tokiwa’s path to the future where he rules. Will he be a benevolent overlord, or succumb to the evils of Oma Zi-O? Time will tell.
For now, we’re tackling this first in a line of Zi-O Armor Time upgrades in the same we always have, with a comprehensive gallery & review! Zi-O Build Armor set the standard for what was to come with many of the shows’ various power ups as well as many that never made it in. This figure likewise sets an incredibly solid & stable standard for how the Zi-O line should progress from here on. A stylish figure with tons of personality inherited from both of it’s parent designs, and armed with the Drill Crusher Crusher (yes!) it’s an excellent addition to the power set of this benevolent overlord.
