Alright, it looks like music day is over. Oh well. At least we can get a better looks at the Astro Swicth sets.
Alright, these are the same sets that were pictured in the official catalogue, only blown up to where they could actually be see. Let’s take a look:
Here’s set 1 with Astro Switches 7 and 8, and it comes with the Fourze Base State Ganbaride card. This is speculation, but I’m pretty sure that 7 is a parachute, and 8 is a circular saw. They actually look very complicated up close.
Here’s set 2, with Astro Switches 12 and 13. Not sure what they do, I’m sure we’ll find out soon. And of course, it comes with a musterious Ganbaride card.
Here’s set 3, with Astro Switches 18 and 19, and a Ganbaride card. These are jumping into the higher numbers very quickly.
And finally we have set 4, with with Astro Switches 21 and 22 and a Ganbaride card.
Each set will be priced at 750 yen, and is expected to be released monthly, with set 1 coming out in September, set 2 in October, set 3 in November, and set 4 in December. Each set will come with a special Ganbaride card for Fourze, presumably those for his different States.
And as a quick guide for the symbols next to the Switches: each symbol or shape corresponds with a different slot in the FourzeDriver, and a different limb in his body. The orange circle is his right arm, the blue X or cross is his right leg, the yellow triangle is his left leg, and the black square is his left arm. And something I haven’t noted before now, but it looks like the slot for his right arm is the one that determines which State Fourze is in. And look at what set 2 features… 😉

P.S.: Yesterday was the anniversary of Neil Armstrong becoming the first man on the moon. Considering the theme for this Rider, that just seemed very relevant. Of course, it’s extremely relevant by itself, but still.
