    I kind of like the design. Although, how is this gimmick going to work in live action?

    Just because the toys do that doesn't mean it's how the form changes will be depicted in-show. The figures for OOO split apart into three pieces and that wasn't how it worked on-screen (though the button used to unlock the figure sections does seem to be on the back of the actual OOO suit).
    Yeah, Cleaning seems weird. His antenna is a vaccum head and his left shoulder pad appears to be the container of a cyclonic vaccum. The chibi figure of that form seems to have a fully mechanical left arm. Also, it's a rabbit / vacuum cleaner Rider suit, and that's a bit wtf.

    I think I'm generally still in the "getting used to it" phase. Build combines roadkill with random objects to create a Rider that looks like W with extra kibble glued on.

    What do you guys think of KeyDragon Form?

    A better image of NinNinComic Form:

    A listing for the first quarter bottle sets that names all their forms.
    The first row, from left to right: GorillaDiamond, HawkGatling, NinNinComic, RocketPanda.
    The second row: KaizokuRessha (yes, 'pirate train', insert your own Sentai reference here) and OctopusLight.
    Also shown are some of the bottles for this year's Legend Rider subline. The Doctor and Game bottles for Ex-Aid, and the Detective and USB bottles for W.

    It seems that they're really going to town with weapons for each form. I haven't seen an official name for this one, but HedgehogTank's is a drill-sword that becomes a gun. The toy will come with the hedgehog bottle.

    [​IMG]

    HawkGatling gets a gun simply called the Hawk Gatlinger. NinNinComic gets the Four Panel Ninja Sword, and KaizokuRessha gets the Pirate Launcher.

    The secondary Rider's main weapon, the Beat Closer, which apparently has a musical theme.

    NightRogue gets a pistol called the Transteam Gun. There will be another villain called Bloodstark whose weapon is called the Steam Blade. These weapons have the ability to combine together.

    The DX Build Phone, which becomes Build's bike when you insert the lion bottle into it:

    I'm guessing that he maybe doesn't get to keep the Dragon part for long as it looks the same as the secondary Rider's.

    Loving all the designs and weapons. Just wishing Toei could take a break of having so many Riders and Rider-like villains appearing in the show so early. We could use a break from that trend and go back to a Solo Rider arcs before the secondary Rider debuts in ep 17ish. But the toy marketing clearly has a bigger influence, which is why they do this.

    Zelmoda's card sword in Carranger was subtler than this one.

    On the plus side, I do like how despite how much current Rider shows get wrong, the 'classic' tropes still manage to emerge, such as Nitrogue and BloodStark being a bat and cobra respectively: all that's missing is a spider.

    Maybe they're saving Spider for later?

    First up, it has been announced that Build will appear in the 44th episode of Ex-Aid on August 20th. The show will then start airing in early September instead of in October as had been expected. This means that anything up to seven episodes of Build could air before the timeslot change kicks in and moves the show to 9am

    Onto more scans. apologies in advance for their large size.

    First up, a better look at the Build Driver. This comes with the Rabbit and Tank Full Bottles. Is it just me or does the center-right image of the bottles look like they actually contain liquid?!

    [​IMG]

    The Build Driver will also be available in a set with a Full Bottle holder (which can hold three additional bottles), and a DX Kamen Rider Build Gashat.

    [​IMG]

    Next up, Kamen Rider Close's transformation items. These will not be released until November, so perhaps Build will get a couple of months by himself before he's joined by another Rider? It seems that Close will also use a Build Driver, but transforms using a device called the Close Dragon. This replaces one of the Full Bottles, and the other slot is filled with the Dragon Full Bottle.

    [​IMG]

    Finally, in December Build will get his first true upgraded form: a soda can called the DX RabbitTank Sparkling. You pull the tab and insert it over both Full Bottle slots. The carbonated contents change Build into RabbitTank Sparkling form.
