I've seen some theories that Seiji Takaiwa might actually be the suit actor for Valkyrie instead of Zero-One when you look at how they move and the hand gestures.
Be interesting to see if that is the case.
You can tell a suit actor just by how they move their hand?
I thought it was already rumored and to a certain extent, confirmed that Takaiwa is now an action director in a sense? Don't take my word for it, but that's the talk that's going on my circle of friends.
Aah OK, so I haven't missed something in all the rush? Cool.Well gosh, since they were making such a big deal about the end of Heisei and the start of Reiwa, I would have guessed that they would at least attempt to try something different from the current Phase 2 tone.
Kabutack and Robotack? I don't know much about their content, but they both really look like Robocon to me lol.I mean the last couple of shows in the 90s.
First of all, welcome! It's always great to see new people here.Actually, there is a pun here if you translate correctly. Zero-One can translate as Rei Wan, and it’s a reference to the fact that it’s the first Reiwa Rider series.
He's not the action director. That's Jun Watanabe. There's been no official word as to who is in the suit. It's just people guessing based on their proportions and body language.I thought it was already rumored and to a certain extent, confirmed that Takaiwa is now an action director in a sense?

PLEX don't generally do the initial designs. Bandai design everything as a toy line first, then turn it over to them to make the suits, and they have to keep as close as possible to what Bandai are putting in stores. When there are exceptions to this, their armor is usually based upon a pre-existing Rider design to cut down on costs (for example, with Zi-O's future Riders).I really don't get what's going on in Toei/PLEX's minds when coming up with Rider forms. Why isn't Flying Falcon all red? They just added a red chest and mask and kept everything else that pale yellow. It looks hideous.
