Tamashii Nations is getting ready for its special show this weekend, Tamashii Features. This year, the company is also celebrating the 5th anniversary of the S.H. Figuarts line. In gearing up towards the show, a few planned items are being teased, notably the release of Kamen Rider ZX and a improved version of Kamen Rider Black.
While ZX may not be one of the popular Riders, he's the last of the Showa Era to get a release. Judging by the detail in that one shot, it's looking like they won't be glossing over anything. The other news comes via early magazine scans with news a renewed version of Kamen Rider Black. The original version was released back in 2009, so it's only been 4 years since. As to what's been done differently, he's being made to look more like his TV appearance. In addition, his bike, the Battle Hopper, will also get a revision and his rival, Shadow Moon, will receive a standard re-release this October.
There's going to be a lot more at the event this weekend, but as with the reputation with these types of shows are, we'll never see most of these ever be released. Here's to hoping!
