Don’t say no – just live more!
One of the most successful lines (in terms of merchandise) for Kamen Rider in the last decade – Kamen Rider Gaim – is making the leap from DX toys to CSM and our wallets couldn’t be more afraid! Before we begin – what is CSM? It stands for Complete Selection Modification. It is basically your DX toys on nerd-steroids to make them as identical to the show as possible and usually with a lot of added features as well. Those nerd-steroids come with an increased price-tag making these items truly for the ultimate collector and not the casual passerby.
Announced and revealed today – the CSM Sengoku Driver. And while today’s announcement probably didn’t offer Kamen Rider Gaim fans everything they wanted in one shot it does offer quite a lot. Let’s look at the details and digest them so we’re all on the same page.

The CSM Sengoku Driver will come with a large plethora of sound effects, voice clips, and background music from the show. Thanks in part to an interview with the actors for Kamen Rider Gaim and Kamen Rider Baron, we know that there are many theme songs from the show included in the CSM Sengoku Driver, including the fan-favorite “Ranbu Escalation” song.
Pre-orders begin later today in Japan.
