Kamen Rider Fourze Info and Pics

 

We are just weeks away from premiere of Kamen Rider Fourze, and everything you can think of about him has been coming out of the woodworks, including pics, info, and eve some confirmations of older rumors about Fourze. Prepare to takeoff!

Let’s start off with this!:

No, this isn’t old stock footage. This is from the upcoming series, and in many ways confirms two myths about the show: 1) That past Riders would appear heavily in this and future series, and 2) that the show would center around rumors of a “Kamen Rider urban legend”. What better way to start off a legend than with a legend!

Alright, now back to Fourze! As you know, Fourze has a series of “States” that he can transform into, and we have the stats on his Base State. Let’s see how he stacks up:

  • Height: 200cm
  • Weight: 95kg
  • Punch strength: 2.1t
  • Kick strength: 6.3t
  • Jump power: 20m in one jump
  • Speed:  100m in 6.2s
  • Special Attack: Rocket Drill Kick (Stratosphere Kick): 15t

Not bad rookie.

Alright, Fourze’s bike, as we know it, is called Machine Masshigler, but that’s just what Gentaro(Fourze) calls it. It’s official designation is “ORB-40F”. It runs on hydrogen, so it doesn’t release any CO2 into the atmosphere. Gotta like an environmentally-conscious Rider.

As you know, fourze’s power comes from the “Astro Switches”, which control his base states, the modules that he equips himself with, and the idiotic Foodroids that he uses. The Astro Switches themselves are powered by a mysterious “Cosmic Energy”, nothing is know about the energy other than that it comes from space. And we have some info on the first five confirmed Modules, or weapons, that he can equip himself with:

  • Fourze’s Module 1, the Rocket Module:
    A rocket is equipped on his right arm. By enabling the Exhaust Thruster, Fourze can add up another 4 t to his punches.
  • Fourze’s Module 2, the Launcher Module:
    He can shoot 5 missiles from his right leg.
  • Fourze’s Module 3, the Drill Module:
    It’s equipped on his left leg. It’s spins around 200 rpm.
  • Fourze’s Module 4, the Radar Module:
    By using this module, Fourze can give his Launcher Module homing missiles. He’s also able to reflect certain waves.
  • Fourze’s Module 5, the Magic Hand Module:
    The Magic Hand is equipped on his right hand, which gives him an extra 10 m reach. The end of the Magic Hand is called the “End Effect Pliers” which can lift up any object up to 6 t.

Of course, the Astro Switches aren’t the only things that are powered by the Cosmic Energy. So are the Zodiarts, Fourze’s main enemy. The Zodiarts use their own Zodiart Switches, and if a person had one of these Zodiart Switches, they would become a Zodiart. And yes, I know the whole gimmick-powered monster thing is cliché at this point, but what can you do? Anyway, the first two Zodiarts that Fourze is going up against are the Orion and Scorpio Zodiarts.

Here’s what we know storywise: Utahosi Kengo (far right) was given the FourzeDriver and 40 Astro Switches by his dying father, whose wish was for Kengo to fight the Zodiarts with it’s power. The only problem, though, is that Kengo’s body is very weak, and therefore cannot fight. He eventually ends up giving the belt to Gentaro (far left) after they meet. The heroine in this story, Joujima Yuki (in the middle next to Fourze), is Kengo’s classmate, and Gentaro’s childhood friend. She calls herself a “space nerd” and “Japan’s happiest schoolgirl”.

Here’s more random pics:

And here’s a handful of toy pics:

Hey, check that out. You can get the SP BuraKaWani Medal set, and it comes with Astro Switch 5, Magic Hand Module. Well played, Bandai. Well played.

Alright, that’s it for Fourze stuff at the moment. If anything else pops up, I’ll be sure to let you know.

Go-Kaiger Ep.23 Screen Shots: Pirates, to the Rescue!

Here are some screen shots from the most recent episode of Go-Kaiger. This one is the GoGoV tribute episode, and GoPink is featured. Let’s get to the main event:

Yes, that is a man dressed as a woman. Basically, Navi predicted that they would meet someone important by helping people out, everyone split up to find people to help out, and Joe and Hakase ran into her, we’ll say, to give her back an earing she dropped. And then they couldn’t get rid of her. Marvelous and Gai found themselves stuck at some long flight of stairs helping old people climb up them (they just kept coming!), and Luka and Ahim came across a pregnant woman who went into labor just as a certain EMT/former Sentai heroine showed up.

But it wasn’t long before the Gormin showed up, without a leader(?).

Thet fight the Gormin as Fiveman and Magiranger, both of which are sibling teams. There’s a recurring “sisters” theme throughout the show. I’ll talk about that more a little farther down.

After the fight, Luka and Ahim headed to the hospital where the pregnant woman was taken, and found out that the woman that showed up to help was Tatsumi Matsuri, a famous EMT and former GoPink of GoGoV. They call everyone to tell them about this, Gai gives off a very enthusiastic (and somewhat vascular) salute upon hearing this, and they all agree to meet up. Unfortunately, everyone was still caught up in what they were already doing, so they’re stuck for a while.

And you can see what happened to Joe and Hakase.

Not a bad make-up job, really.

Later, when they’re trying to catch up with Matsuri, whose trying to help out a seriously injured young boy, Basco shows up demanding GoGoV‘s great power from Matsuri in exchange for letting the ambulance leave so that the injured boy could be treated.

Because she’s so dedicated to helping out others, she was willing to hand over the Grand Power, but Luka adamantly insisted that she needed to stay behind and help the boy. During this scene, she reveals (in a flashback I couldn’t find screen shots of) that she use to have a little sister, named Fia, who became gravely ill and died before Luka could take her to a doctor, and she talked about how powerless she was to help. Luka was even willing to stay behind and distract Basco by herself, so that the others could escape. But Ahim stepped in and insisted that they needed to fight together, to stop treating her like her surrogate little sister and to trust her to come up with a way out of it. And Luka trusted her to do so, so they came up with this:

This isn’t actually Matsuri in this picture (at least not according to what happened next):

That’s right, she used MagiPink’s magic to disguise herself as Matsuri, so that the ambulance could get through and the Grand Power could be safely kept away from Basco.

Now that’s some clever thinking. Of course, they’ll never be able to use that again, but still.

The ambulance might have been able to get away, but they were still stuck with Basco, not to mention Rio, Mele, and Zuban.

Oh no, what are they going to do?! Oh, right, it’s the GoGoV tribute episode!

It’s a very good update of the henshin sequence. For those of you expecting a Titanium Ranger cameo, I’m afraid you’ll be slightly disappointed. At this point, they fight the summoned senshi as GoGoV, while Go-KaiSilver goes into Gold Mode, and they finish them off with Final Wave and Go-Kai Legend Dream.

Oh, look, new RangerKeys. Oh, darn, the monkey got them.

And here’s what GoGoV’s Grand Power looks like (What’s unofficially being called by me as GoGo-KaiOh).

Yes, they’re water hoses. This new droid is a Fireroid.

Go-Kai Prominence! (That’s the name of the attack)

End of the show, everybody’s fine. Hooray!

And here’s some shots from next week’s episode:

Jealoushitto!

WTF is that?!

Mini pics!

     

Next week, they change into Megaranger, Timeranger, and Hurricanger.

Alright, as you may or may not know, it was announced not too long ago that Kamen Rider OOO and Kamen Rider Fourze would have a movie war together, and a small teaser trailer for it has popped up. Let’s take a look:

Sorry it doesn’t reveal much. That’s why they’re called teaser trailers.
