Kamen Rider Fourze Press Conference: What did I miss? Oh, right, EVERYTHING………

Yeah, I would have reported on this mucch sooner, but the power went out at my house, and in half the city, during a very nasty storm that popped up yesterday. So, I’m just gonna have to put EVERYTHING Fourze-related that’s popped up since yesterday into this one post. Brace yourself, ‘cuz we’re about to take off!

Yesterday, the official press conference for Kamen Rider Fourze took place, and we’ve been getting photos, videos, and announcement after announcement about it since!

First, we’ll go with all the pics I’ve found of the press conference so far:

 

Wow, that’s a whole lotta stuff!

Anyway, as a sepcial treat, I have two videos for Fourze, one from the press conference, and one about the press conference with some footage from the show. If you listen closely to the first video, you can make out Fourze’s henshin sound!:

3… 2… 1… HENSHIN! (Funky music), that’s how a henshin sequence should sound. After the little fight sequence, he checks his watch, and goes, “Ahh, I’m late!”

Ikuze, High School Rider!

Anyone else starting to feel pumped?!

How about now?

Anyway, the character profiles have also been released. Let’s take a look at our new class:

From left to right: JK, Tomoko, Sarina, Miwa, Shun,
Chuuta, Kengo, Gentaro, Yuuki and Mysterious Man

Kisaragi Gentaro(Fukushi Sota): The main character of the series, second year. He recently transferred to Amanogawa Academy. He’s a bad boy rocking a short pompadour hairstyle. He declares that he will become friends with everyone in the school. He meets  Utahoshi Kengo, as if it was destined for them to meet. Gentaro receives the Fourze Driver and starts the Kamen Rider club in school. He seems to be an idiotic character.

Utahoshi Kengo(Takahashi Ryuki): The main character’s partner, second year. A young man who had the mysterious switches. He’s a key person to the whole story. His locker seems to be distorting space and he’s somehow able to reach the moon base, “Rabbit Hutch” through the locker. He’s also able to pull out the super bike “Machine Masshigler”. He might be physically weak, but he has strong heart full of will.

Joujima Yuuki (Shimizu Fukima): The heroine of the story, second year. She is Gentaro’s childhood friend. She’s a bright and cheerful high school student, she refers herself as a “space nerd”. She usually heads over to JAXA after school. JAXA is like some space thing in Japan. She’s the only one that Kengo can actually trust, Kengo shared his secret about his special locker to her.

Kazashiro Miu (Sakata Rikako): Third year. She’s somewhat the queen of the school as she is a cheerleader. She’s the daughter of a rich family. Ever since she was born, she was always treated like the queen bee. No matter where she goes in school, her two sidekicks will always follow her. She’s a beautiful girl with pride.

Daimonji Jun (Justin Tominori): Third year. The captain of the American Football team. There’s a hierarchy going on in Amanogawa Academy, with jocks on top. Jun is standing on the absolute top.

Nozama Tomoko (Shiho): First year. She’s the goth girl with black make up under her eyes. She always brings her Tablet PC with her and has a weird laughter. She seems to fixate and obsess over various things, but the details are unknown.

JK or Jake (Tsuchiya Shion): First year. Jake is the information provider of the school. He easily detects danger and is a coward who always runs away.

Sonada Sarina (Konan Yuka): Gentaro’s homeroom teacher and the teacher of classical literature. She’s young and beautiful, every student loves her. Although, she has trouble with Gentaro and Kengo.

Oosugi Chuuta (Tanaka Takushi): The geography teacher. He’s a middle-aged man with bad looks and a bad personality. No one seems to like him. He seems to be trying to get it with Sonada, but it just won’t happen.

The man with red eyes (Tsurumi Shingo): A mysterious man who caused some incident and has the “Zodiarts Switches” He seems to have a connection with the school, but he’s a complete mystery.

That’s the line-up we’ve got going, hopefully the story won’t get too bogged down with high school stuff.

Quickly, we do have some info on the “Astro Switches” Fourze uses. The switches, as you know, are inserted into the FourzeDriver, and gives him different tools and abilities. Starting from right to left on the belt, we have: Right Arm-Rocket, Right Leg-Launcher, Left Leg-Drill, and Left Arm-Radar. So far, we’ve only seen the Rocket Arm in action, but I’m sure that we’ll see more of the other Switches’ powers as we get closer to the launch date (badum bum).

As you know, with OOO on the way out, Bandai has already announced that they will be replacing the part of the game that uses the OOO Medals and changing them out for the Fourze Astro Switches. Above is how the game will look with the new Astro Switch gameplay, let’s see if it pans out.

And in the final bit of Fourze related news, the official website from TV Asahi is up for Kamen Rider Fourze, and it’s right here: http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/fourze/ . There’s not much to the site yet, but it is up and running. And I will be adding it to the blog roll sometime soon.

Alright, that is it for Fourze news at the moment, if anything else pops up, I’ll be sure to let you know. And, for anyone interested, this is the biggest, most thorough post on Kamen Rider Fourze on the internet as of today, so, yeah, your welcome.

Kamen Rider Fourze starts September 4th, the week after the series finale of Kamen Rider OOO, and will air alongside Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger in the Super Hero Time! tv slot.

Go-Kaiger and OOO Previews: Finally, what we really want!

Sorry I can’t bring you the full episodes, but here are the previews for next week’s!

Will Don be able to accept Gai? Will Gai finally use his Gold Mode? And will Ankh be absorbed by Lost Ankh?! Tune in next week to find out!

henshinGARB Catalogue 4: Or why people like to stop at trilogies.

Hey everyone! It’s that time of the season when there is absolutely no big toku news. So guess what I’m going to do? That’s right! I’m going to push my own stuff onto you! Because of such underwhelming demand, and an ever-expanding product list, I decided that it was time to publish a new catalogue. And this time, I’m including EVERYTHING that’s currently in the shop. I’ve got a lot of old stuff, a lot of new stuff, and a lot of stuff you might not even be interested in. So let’s get to it!

First up we have the henshinhead logo tee, available in multiple sizes and colors, available for men and women. Only $12.00.

New to the shop is this tee with the mini logo on the left side of the chest, so that you can have the logo of your favorite blog site on your heart. Available in multiple sizes and colors, for men and women, and for only $12.00.

Here we have the newly re-designed HENSHINHEAD RULES! tee, I’ve changed the font, and played around with the sizes, and you’ve got to admit, it looks nicer. Available in men’s and women’s sizes, in multiple colors, and available for only $10.00.

Still available are these re-designed Heroes for Japan Tees. Now, I know that the Super Hero Time Japan Relief Effort has been over for some time, and that I originally designed these shirts for that charity, but these are still cool designs, and the message is still the same. Available for only $12.00.

Also still available are these Still Standing Tees, showing the Kamen Rider statue in Miyagi after the tsunami devastated the area, still standing after a massive earthquake and a raging tsunami. The ultimate symbol of Japan’s strength and resilience. Available for only $16.00.

And of course, one of our favorites, the GOOOO-KAIJA! Tees. Both men’s and women’s sizes are available in multiple sizes and colors. Men’s shirt for only $12.00, and women’s slim fit AA shirt for $19.00.

And now for one of my favorites, the Don’t make me Push my Buttons! Tee. It’s a pun with a toku twist! Now available for women’s sizes. Available for $16.00.

We’ve now made it to our Toku Allegience line, and here we’re starting with Super Sentai. Based off of the Goranger costumes, it now includes Akaranger and Momoranger designs. Each available for only $12.00.

Also still available as part of the Toku Allegience line are these designs based off of Kamen Rider and Ultraman. Each also only $12.00.

Sorry ladies, I’m still working on female equivalent designs for Kamen Rider and Ultraman. But you can always get the Momoranger shirt.

Next up we have the popular Bouken Spirits Tees, featuring the Boukenger compass logo on the chest, which are equal in size and position as they appear on the Boukengers’ uniforms. Available in multiple sizes and colors, $12.00 for men’s, $19.00 for women’s.

And new to the shop is the Bioman Badge Tee. Because I’ve been watching a lot of the dubbed episodes of Bioman lately, I’ve become somewhat of a fan of the show, and wanted to express that in t-shirt form. Available in multiple sizes and colors, $12.00 for men’s, $19.00. for women’s.

And along with this line of retro series, I decided to through in these new Aura Power! Tees. With the Maskman logo in the proper place on the t-shirt as it was on the uniform,  even you can use the power of aura and kung fu skills to fight evil. Available in multiple sizes and colors, $12.00 for men’s, $19.00 for women’s.

And because I am apparently one of the few people who actually likes either version of this series, we have these Gingaman in a Lost Galaxy Tees. With the iconic Charlie Brown-esque jagged line marks across the midsection, these shirts properly pay tribute to this series. Available in multiple sizes, men’s muscle shirt $17.00,  women’s standard weight t-shirts only $12.00.

And now for a random series of buttons.

As you may or may not be able to tell, I really like buttons. We’ve got six different button designs, all available in small and large size buttons. The majority cost $5.00 for the small buttons, and $6.00 for the large buttons. The only exceptions are the Still Standing buttons, which are $4.00 for small, $5.00 for large.

So that is everything currently available in the shop, hope you guys like this stuff. If you’re interested in any of this stuff, or just want to check out the store, just click the henshinGARB link in the blogroll on the side, under the section labeled “Stuff I actually have anything to do with”, and it should take you straight there. And if it’s anymore of an enticement, there is a Spreadshirt special going on for the month of May, buy four short-sleeve shirts and get one free. Details in the coupon below. (Note: you do not need a physical copy of the coupon, just the coupon code listed below.)

UPDATE: Okay, I understand that the KRFan SUCKS! Tees were in bad taste, so I’ve gotten rid of them. But the sentiment is still there.

UPDATE: (5/21/11) Hey, added some new stuff, ckeck it out:

It’s all part of my new Abare Guts! line of products. We have men’s shirts available in red, blue, and black for $12.00, a yellow women’s shirt available for $19.00, and two sets of buttons for $5 and $6. So if that doesn’t entice you to buy something, I don’t know what will. And for anybody who just can’t find the link to the shop it’s right here: http://henshingarb.spreadshirt.com/

Could somebody buy something please?! I just can’t keep waiting on PaladinZeo to get paid. Come on, I will do whatever you want, make whatever you want, if you want me to modify the designs or make them available in different sizes or colors I’ll do it, just please say something. It’s all about the customer here at henshinGARB.

Super Hero Time Update(?): New video released on RRR.

http://ridersrangersandrambles.com/2011/04/30/10849

RRR just uploaded a new video regarding SHT. Just follow the link above to see the original post. For those of you who don’t know or may not recall, Ryokuya of RRR along with CS Toys Blog and several others started the Super Hero Time Japan Relief Effort after the devastating magnitude 9 earthquake struck off the coast of Japan, the quake that resulted in hundreds of massive aftershocks and a tsunami that nearly wiped out Sendai and other areas along coast. From March 13th to April 9th, SHT managed to successfully raise $8255 for Japan relief, and it was all thanks to your donations. If you’d like to read the original post, or see the video, just click the link above. And to those of you who donated, arrigato gozaimasu! (^O^)/

henshinGARB: Hissatsu Waza Sale: Slashing prices left and right in one big finisher!

Hey there everybody, I’m just here pushing my shop henshinGARB again, and bringing you new deals and new products. While this isn’t a new official catalogue, it is free advertising for me. So let’s get to it!

Starting with new price cuts, the ever-popular henshinhead logo tee has been drop-kicked down to just $12.00, for men’s and women’s tees. Here’s another pic for those who haven’t seen it:

T-Shirts ~ Men's Standard Weight T-Shirt ~ henshinhead logo teeWomen's T-Shirts ~ Women's Standard Weight T-Shirt ~ henshinhead logo women's tee

I’ve also gone down on the price for the GOOO-KAIJA! Men’s tees, now down to $11.

T-Shirts ~ Men's Standard Weight T-Shirt ~ GOOOO-KAIJA! Men's Tee

Sorry ladies, no price reduction for the women’s tees. Not without losing yellow.

Also reduced is the “Don’t make me push my buttons!” Tee, now down to $16.T-Shirts ~ Men's Heavyweight T-Shirt ~ Don't make me push my buttons! Tee

If you look real close, you can see the kanji for henshin on the phone screen. Thought you’d like that.

While SHT might have ended, I will still be offering the stuff I made specifically for it, namely the two tee shirts at reduced price.

Starting with the Heroes for Japan tees, their price has been reduced to just $12. I have also taken the writing off the back, but the message still rings true.

T-Shirts ~ Men's Standard Weight T-Shirt ~ Super Hero Time Support: Heroes for JapanWomen's T-Shirts ~ Women's Standard Weight T-Shirt ~ Super Hero Time Support: Heroes for Japan

And the Still Standing Tee (featuring the picture of the Kamen Rider Statue in Miyagi still standing after the quake and tsunami) has been reduced to $16.

T-Shirts ~ Men's Standard Weight T-Shirt ~ Still StandingWomen's T-Shirts ~ Women's Standard Weight T-Shirt ~ Still Standing

And that is everything that has been reduced. And just so were clear these price changes are permanent. Because our Hissatsu Waza sales cut prices down to size, and makes sure they stay down!

But before I forget, I have three new products available, as part of my new line called “Toku Allegience”. While we all love every tokusatsu series, we do have our favorites. And you can show it we these new tees. Available currently for Super Sentai, Kamen Rider, and Ultraman. And each available for only $12.

T-Shirts ~ Men's Standard Weight T-Shirt ~ Toku Allegience: Super Sentai Tee

T-Shirts ~ Men's Standard Weight T-Shirt ~ Toku Allegience: Kamen Rider Tee

T-Shirts ~ Men's Standard Weight T-Shirt ~ Toku Allegience: Ultraman Tee

If you like to see any other genre or series, be sure to let me know. I’ll even do bad guys if you want.

And that’s all for now. If you see anything you like, be sure to click the link in the blog roll, under the category “Things I actually have anything to do with”. And be sure to visit to see what else is available. And as always, keep checking here for all the latest in toku news.

Super Hero Time! Final Update: Thanks Everybody!

Saturday April 9th was officially the last day of the Super Hero Time! Japan Relief Effort. The final donations came in and the final amount came to $8,255! That is certainly more than they were expecting, and a good sum of money for an upstart fundraiser. And since the money is going directly to Mr. S at CSToys Blog, and he has already arranged to hand this money over to charities in Japan, I’m sure it will go to good use. On behalf of SHT for this site, I just want to thank everyone that donated to the relief effort. It’s amazing what we can do when we come together. For everyone that donated, you should all consider yourselves real heroes. If you’d like a real henshin device to go with that title, please feel free to contact me. But in all seriousness, I would just like to say thank you, your donation will really help someone out.
