On Friday, January 3rd we had the opportunity to do something really special. We held a live-streamed interview with #TeamRider of Bluefin Brands asking both questions we wrote up as well as questions we asked you for via our @TokuNation Twitter account (now 10,000 strong and growing – THANK YOU!). During the interview they were able to see your comments and respond to them real-time. We had a blast and we can’t wait to do it again soon.
Below is a recap of some of the questions/answers as well as the stream itself so you can listen if you missed it. Enjoy!
Are previous CSM Kamen Rider belts available to be released in the United States and Canada?
Bluefin Brands is limited to only what is currently in production or available at retail in Japan. If there is an item that you want to see brought back – be vocal on social media and at conventions. However, there is a good chance that any future CSM items that release will be brought over to the United States and Canada.
Why are there no releases currently planned for UK and Europe?
Bluefin Brands does not hold the rights to distribute items in the UK or Europe. They encourage fans in the UK and Europe to reach out to their local distributors to try and get the same items released there. (NOTE: We have reached out to the Bandai UK branch in hopes of getting more information and if/when we receive a response we will share it with you).
Why is xxxx S.H. Figuart not releasing in the United States?
Tamashii Nations and Bluefin Brands are two separate entities. Tamashii Nations produces a certain number of figures and allocates them accordingly. For the record – #TeamRider asks for quantities of EVERY. SINGLE. FIGURE. that is produced. Sometimes they get a yes, sometimes they get a no. Originally, they were told they were not getting S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Zero-One – and now he’s available for pre-order. They’re working on it.
Are you going to release the accessory items for the DX Belts?
At this time they are not in the plans – but they want to for sure. It goes hand in hand with the earlier comment about items in production. If Lock Seeds aren’t currently being produced they can’t necessarily get a run of Lock Seeds brought over to go with the DX Sengoku Driver. This is something they are looking at and working on but the short term answer is nothing right now. Stay tuned.

Along with the recently announced Kivat Belt, more Complete Selection Modification goodness is coming our way from our friends at Bandai. The following CSM items are on display at The Henshin Complete Selection Modification Exhibition Vol.1 event currently being held at Tokyo, Akihabara:
–Kamen Rider Aqua’s Transformation belt
-The V-Buckle used by the Alternative Zeros from Kamen Rider Ryuki
-The Garren Buckle and Rouzer used by none other than Kamen Rider Garren.
-The Psyga Driver and Orga Driver used by Kamen Riders Psyga and Orga respectively.
Do note that these are currently display only items so there’s a good chance that these were only made for the show and won’t see an actual release to the public. But be sure to check back with us, and we’ll notify you once any of these belts enter the production/pre-order phase.
In case you missed it; the trailer for Toei’s upcoming movie Kamen Rider Reiwa: The First Generation dropped just a week prior. Fans were delighted at the reveal of Kamen Rider Ichigata, a walking homage to the granddaddy himself: Kamen Rider Ichigou.
Since his reveal last week, a pre-order page for his transformation belt: The CycloneRiser’s just went up on P-Bandai’s website.
Pre-Orders for the DX CycloneRiser will begin December 2nd 2019 and will close January 23rd 2020. The belt will then be shipped out by March 2020 with a retail price tag of 6,50 yen. Also included in the package will be the Rocking Hopper Progrise Key.
