    Well this is neat

    BigBadToyStore has what seems to be a domestic listing for the MiniPla Don Onitaijin for this November (it’s currently out already, presuming you can find a store that isn’t sold out already)

    Not only that, Bandai actually made an English logo for the release:

    I doubt it’s anything more than continuing to push for MiniPla’s stateside releases, but it’s still neat to see

    Bonus bit: not too much of BBTS usual mark up; the pre-order says the price will be $48.99 (a much more affordable fraction of the DX Figure’s price)

    Revice Episode 1 has been added to Toei’s weird YouTube “here’s two episodes of each rider” experiment thing

    They should just pull a Gundam.info - shows free on YouTube, rotate what's available fairly regularly, YouTube shows have built in adds at the end for gunpla/models/whatever, shows are fully accessible on <insert streaming service here>

    Bandai had an earnings report recently I gotta find again that makes me think someone over there needs to explain to the old men at Toei how to localize a brand internationally.

    It's weird, because there's absolutely a market out there from what i can see. Kamen Rider shows are *fantastic* as binge watchable content, because let's be honest - none of them are high literature, but they're cheery and fun. I'm actually finally watching Saber, 7 episodes in, and it's good stuff for what it is. And you could totally still play to the core kids demographic and then just rake in the extra money from the adults and other nerds who'll shell out for belts, or hell, do limited runs of the full costumes for cosplayers. Charge ten arms and five kidneys, i'd bet they'd still sell.

    IBO was 2015, so I’d guess more Build Fighters (which ran from 2013 to 2014)

    given this data is Fiscal Year 2023, I would guess (but am not 100% sure) that their FY2014 data is from 2013

    Build Fighters was when they really started pushing Gundam.info's youtube, which made gundam way more accessible to your average person. BF itself got a lot of good buzz which the series needed after AGE's... chilly reception. IBO helped though!

    A friend of mine went to California for Power Morphicon, and apparantly Gokai Red is staying in the same hotel as him. I am mildly envious.

    Some pictures of mini-figs for Kamen Rider Geats has shown off what Tycoon will look like (more or less) with a personal Raise Buckle of his own.

    Supposedly, the Raise Buckle's based on ninjas.

    i watched episode 1 of geats!
    I pogged out of my goddamn mind when I realized this show is gonna be a kabuto/gatack situation, love having the viewpoint character be a secondary protagonist

    Just watched the last 3 eps of Revice all in a row and
    got a little teary-eyed, but it still didn't match the ending of OOO. I just didn't care as much about Vice, probably because he was so goofy all the time. Still a solid season of Kamen Rider. Hiromi is best boy.

    And then watched the first ep of Geats and it definitely looks rad. Geats' design with the white top/red bottom is really good.

    Yeah
    Geats definitely has the Tendou vibes of being the cool cocksure guy, and Keiwa definitely has Kagami vibes as the normal shlub trying to deal with all the craziness

    Obviously they're both battle royales, but it's actually kind of like Ryuki in that way too. Even though the show was called Ryuki, Knight often felt like the main Rider and Ryuki felt more like a secondary

    I finished all of Saber, including Trio of Deep Sin

    Which sadly wasn't a great epilogue despite it's cool hook. Saber itself was pretty fun, though the Villains were weak. Logos and Storious just didn't have very compelling reasons, and there's really only so far "because he's eeeeeevil" can carry you for characterization. Amazing Siren was a great suit though

    Thankfully the main cast carried things while playing off each other well. Rintaro was a highlight, as was Mei's many many comedic dooms.

    Desat was criminally underused too.

    The Suit designs overall didn't do a lot for me - emotional dragon was the best designed of the lot, but none of it really reached the clear strengths of Z0's designs. On the other hand, no Gai shitting up the plot. We'll call it a draw.

    Geats first episode was interesting, I'm curious to see how it unfolds and how many bodies hit the floor. Also very curious to see what the upgrade forms look like in this, especially given the starting dynamic between Geats and Tycoon.

    Debating if I want to watch Revice. Vice seems really really annoying

    He's voiced by a guy who's been super duper racist online about black people so that's an out if you want to take it

    Yeah, that's one of the reasons i've been considering avoiding it as well, because aaaaaarghs fuck that guy. It's bad enough he's a decently prolific VA =(

    Looks like they're adding something new to the Double line alongside the Fuuto PI-fueled Driver reissues.

    The next chapter of the Thouser Vs Gemn story just got a trailer and it looks like it's opening the floor for some more unexpected entrants.
    https://youtu.be/_VMtnpjJeL4

    So Horobi's back somehow. Plus Riders from Ryuki and Saber joining in and apparently Faiz's final boss cause sure, why not.

    Asakura being back is interesting, given he died died back in the Ryuki sequel/epilogue special from Zi-O (with no take backs this time)

    It seems like the dudes in white briefly seen could be Foundation X which would explain a lot about the other "shouldn't be there" reappearances since Asakura appeared in a special involving them during Kamen Rider Ex-Aid.

    Geats ep 2
    They killed off Pengu Rider already?! And his little ID core thing broke? That better not be the last we see of that suit! I was really hoping for some cool penguin designs

    I wonder how many times we'll see a new world created... At first I thought it would all take place in the current world until Tycoon wins, but now I have a feeling it's going to get rebooted a few times

    Between the opening and the episode itself, I can't help but wonder if Geats is either being forced or purposefully putting himself in the role of Odin from Kamen Rider Ryuki.

    So, the Jya seem to have an actual language they're speaking. Which makes me think there's likely to turn out to be more going on with them than we think (ala the Grongi back in Kuuga)
