Struggling with the duality of his human & Fangire parentage, Wataru Kurenai protected humanity from his own monstrous kind. As Kamen Rider Kiva, Wataru fought for justice, but he also needed a ride. Built by the mysterious Motobat the 16th, and entrusted to Kiva by Kivat Bat III, the Machine Kivaa is a mighty machine worthy of the Fangire king!
Tamashii Nations has done Kamen Rider Kiva fans an incredible solid with this release. The Machine Kivaa Option Parts Set gives fans everything they could possibly want to compliment their Kiva collections. Not only do we get the the Machine Kivaa, a stylish modification of the base Honda Shadow 750 model, but also Kiva’s other signature props. The regal throne we see Kiva sat upon often, particularly in the series opening, as well as the Bloody Rose. The magnificent violin created and played by Wataru’s father, Otoya. This set really is a love letter to a show that’s often derided, but is absolutely one of the most stylish series out there.

Premium Bandai has announced the next entry in the fan-favorite Complete Selection Modification series!
This time, Kamen Rider Kiva gets a chance to shine- thanks to the Complete Selection Modification Kivat Belt! This belt consists of the legendary creature Kivat III and six Fuestles which Kiva uses to channel various attacks.
But that’s not all! Complete Selection Modification will also be releasing Tatsulot– the almighty dragon device that activates Kamen Rider Kiva Emperor Form.
A full video preview of the Kivat Belt & Tatsulot has been uploaded online:
The CSM Kivat Belt will be released in March 2020 for 29700 Yen while the CSM Tatsulot is scheduled for release in April 2020 and priced at 13750 Yen.
The annual Tamashii Nations event is under way and as ever, there are a plethora of new items on display. Just as with every Tamashii event, an item being displayed does not necessarily indicate that it will be released however. A number of new items are currently listed as “Display Only” as well.
That being said, this year’s event has certainly provided a number of figures of interest:
Shinkocchou Seihou S.H. Figuarts:
– Den-O Sword Form
– Kuuga Growing, Dragon, Pegasus & Titan Forms
– OOO TaJaDor, SaGoZho, LaToraTah & ShaUTa Combos
– Dark Kiva
– OOO Ridevendor
Kamen Rider S.H. Figuarts:
Build Genius Form
Ghost Mugen Damashii
Vulcan Shooting Wolf
Valkyrie Rushing Cheetah
Ultraman S.H. Figuarts:
Ultra Dark Killer
That is a hefty grouping of new reveala. Once again, we know that not everything here will make it to production for some time, if at all. But it’s always pleasing to see just how much Tamashii pumps out for these events. As more new reveals, images, and information from the event surface we will update this story and the related thread.
Shy, anxious, fearful, Wataru Kurenai would rather craft violins like his father Otoya. But as the son of the Fangire Queen as well, he was destined to become Kamen Rider Kiva, the Fangire King! And like the King’s before him Wataru has one trusted partner, a member of the Kivat family, Kivat Bat III. With Kivat in tow, Wataru sets out to fight Fangires and protect humanity, just as his father did (occasionally) 20 years prior. Now it’s time to break the chains on a review we’ve waited years for with S.H. Figuarts Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider Kiva!
As the Heisei Era ends, Tamashii Nations has at long last delivered on the promise of completing the 20 Heisei Riders! With Kamen Rider Kiva, the entire lineup of main riders is complete, and let me say, it’s incredibly satisfying. Kiva brings to a close an era of incredible heroes and does so in gorgeous fashion. With the trademark accuracy and engineering of the Seihou line, Kiva looks as though he walked right off the set. Including his 6 Fuestles, the Hell’s Gate leg for his Rider Kick, a Ridewatch Tamashii Stage, and the ever present Kivat Bat III, Kiva is a tremendously welcome sight to any Kamen Rider collection.
You can check out our full 100 image gallery below by clicking “Discuss on the TokuNation Forums at the bottom of this post. It features not only the 20 Heisei Riders, but also as many Kiva cameos as I could make happen including TV riders Ixa, Rising Ixa, Emperor Kiva, & Dark Kiva, movie villains Kamen Riders Rey and Arc, & even Decade’s own Kiva-La! Please join in the discussion and let us know what you think of this release which finally closes out the Heisei Era. Next time, it’s Armor Time with a brand new gallery from Kamen Rider Zi-O!
“I think I was destined to choose this path.”
Little did Sougo Tokiwa know, his childhood dreams of being a great king were prophetic in a way. Should they ever come to pass, they could create the desolate future ruled by Sougo’s own evil self, the overlord Oma Zi-O! In the present, Sougo journey’s down the path of the overlord, defeating Another Riders as Kamen Rider Zi-O! But with the Day of Oma approaching, will Zi-O become the evil overlord? Or will Kamen Rider Geiz, the Time Jackers, Kamen Rider Woz, or even Kamen Rider Decade, manage to contain his power? Time, will tell…
S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Zi-O kicks off this year’s new Figuarts sub-line as a pretty solid release. While assuredly many will take issue with this figure’s lack of accessories (which are included with the Ride Striker) this figure has a lot to offer and lots of personality. Zi-O is a well rounded, well articulated figure that fits in fantastically with mainline figuarts as well Shinkocchou Seihou releases. Though Seihou Kamen Rider Kiva still hasn’t been released, seeing Zi-O with his fellow lead riders is still quite the sight. And if you happen to have a DX Time Mazine as I do, you’ll find that Figuarts Zi-O works quite well with him. Zi-O also compliments Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider Decade marvelously.

Today, Toei began streaming a new video promoting the upcoming Kamen Rider Heisei Generations Forever film (which comes out in two days!). But rather than just a new teaser or trailer for the film, this video previews the films theme song, which is itself a compilation and re-mix of the Opening Themes for all 20 Heisei Riders!
Titled “Heisei Generations Forever Medley D.A. Re-Build Mix” this song arranges clips from each of the 20 Heisei Rider OP’s into one giant song, set to a variety of archival footage as well as new scenes from the soon to be released film itself. This new theme was arranged by Daisuke Asakura.
Kamen Rider Heisei Generations Forever hits Japanese theaters on December 22nd! Best to dodge spoilers on social media for a bit, but if you’d like to join in on our ongoing discussion of the film, feel free to pop into our discussion thread linked below.
