“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.
