A week ago we celebrated Kamen Rider Heisei Generations Forever being officially released and subtitled in North America. Because of your response to the sale that Bluefin Brands and Team Kamen Rider did on their merchandise we are pleased to share with you that three new official Kamen Rider shirts are available to order via Amazon.com!
As with the previous releases these shirts are available in a variety of colors and in USA sizing. As a personal owner of the previous shirts the quality is fantastic – I recommend going one size larger just because they are a bit snug.
It’s time to travel back to 1971 and Medicom has your ticket back to the past with their take on a Kamen Rider 1, pre-orders have just opened up for the RAH Genesis Kamen Rider 1 & Cyclone Ultimate Edition Set!
As the name implies, this massive set will include both Kamen Rider 1 and his trusty motorcycle: The Cyclone. An assortment of optional hands will be included, along with an alternate head depicting actor Hiroshi Fujioka in his iconic role as Takeshi Hongo. In addition, both belt and motorcycle will have a built-in LED gimmick.
All of this can be yours for a relatively steep cost of 56,650 yen. (Approximately 517.49 USD as of this writing) you can look forward to this figure sometime in September 2019. In the meantime, head on over to AmiAmi and reserve yours today.
Tamashii Nations 2018 is just around the corner, and thanks to the official @t_features twitter we have confirmation of the two tokusatsu exclusives for the show.
First up is a repaint of the well received Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider 1 S.H. Figuart in Sakurajima colors. Since Tamashii seems to be working backwards from the “Shin Rider 1” design, how long until we get Hongo in his original colors? Rider 1 will retail for 6480 yen.
“Oh no!” The Black Hazard arrives continuing the pattern of black repaint event exclusives with S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Build Rabbit/Tank Hazard Form! With Hazard confirmed at last, could we see Rabbit/Rabbit or Tank/Tank as well as Genius on the horizon? Here’s hoping. Hazard Form will retail for 6480 yen as well.
Both exclusives will be available at Tamashii Nations 2018, October 26th-28th.
