HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! SUBARASHI!!!!
The Silver Rider has a faceplate similar to Gaim's, interesting. The Gold one looks new to me.

No sign of the third Rider mentioned in last month's scans, I wonder whether that's just Jimber Melon then.

We're up to 17 Riders now, 18 if you want to count the Kurokage Troopers:

1. Gaim
2. Baron
3. Ryugen
4. Zangetsu
5. Gridon
6. Kurokage
7. Bravo
8. Knuckle
9. Zangetsu-Shin
10. Duke
11. Sigurd
12. Marika
13. Bujin Gaim
14. Fifteen
15. Kurokage-Shin
16. Gold Rider
17. Silver Rider

I think Zangetsu-Shin has to count as a different Rider now since 2 people are using it now.

Well if there is a movie war next year Gaim could well take over Hibiki (apparently standing on 19).

18, if you count the third, Gaim-looking one. I'm pretty sure that's not Jimber Melon, since it was under 'New Riders Appearing in the Summer Film'.

I get the feeling that was just some poor wording on their part and it was just meant to be "Look at all the things appearing in our movie!"

TV Asahi's site also counts Lemon Energy Baron as a new Rider (He's listed under the Next Gen Riders section instead of as a form change of Baron) so make that 18-19.

My one complaint thus far has to be the color choices. I know that its super common for the whole red oni/blue oni thing to come into play when you have a pair of characters especially in anime and toku, but am I the only one who's confused as to why the second guy isn't silver and green?

I feel it should be lookin something like this...

I wouldn't count that as a new Rider, because:

- it's still called Kamen Rider Baron
- TV Asahi is probably separating the Sengoku Driver forms and Genesis Driver forms
- Baron has the same base suit
- He doesn't even go out of suit when switching belts

That seems to be the reasoning behind TV-Asahi's sorting, yeah.

Someone pointed out how Zangetsu-Shin and Kurokage-Shin happen to not only be upgrades to existing Riders, but their Energy Lockseeds are also upgrades to existing Lockseeds, which might be why they get the name change. Kind of a weird bit of logic to it, I know, but based on what we seen, it makes some sense I guess?

I kind of treat the -Shin name like I would with any sort of unusual form name. Like how Meteor's new form isn't called Meteor Storm States, it's just Meteor Storm. Or Ixa's form isn't just Rising Form, it's Rising Ixa. -Shin is just like a "This is a special kind of form change" name to me.

Also, since they're grunts and don't traditionally henshin (or do much of anything really) I feel like we can't count the Troopers as separate riders. Armored Rider Kurokage clearly counts but the Troopers are basically just an army of clones. I feel like the Troopers fall into the same grey area as the Riotroopers.

Basically, yeah - Their official name is just "Kurokage Trooper", or no name at all in the case of the show, no Kamen/Armored Rider title.

EDIT: Someone pointed out that the silver apple'd one might be based on the armor of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, seen here. I have to admit, I didn't think a head piece this similar actually existed. :laugh:

Keep on shining, Dairanger.
Hey guys, I've recently just received my Sengoku Driver, the thing is though, that when I go to flick the switch on the back to turn it on nothing happens, do they come with batteries inside the driver or do I have to buy my own? Also, how would I be able to insert the batteries? 1mm Phillips Head screwdriver is still too small for it.

The Sengoku Driver is one of this belts that you push that funny looking knob at the very bottom of the back and slide it.

the general rule with battery-operated toys is that unless it's the kind that has a pull tab, like the Lock Seeds, the batteries are sold separately, but most Bandai toys just take 2 AAA batteries

it doesn't really matter. those are secondary colors that are just there for decoration; they're still supposed to be a golden apple and a silver apple, not red and green

alternatively, those colors may represent the sun and moon in reference to a 20th century Irish poem that reads like this

I will find out where she has gone
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
And walk among the dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun

Any idea why the Gashapon Lockseeds have come to a halt? I recall release dates suggesting that April would include Wizard in All Dragon and an Oren version of Donguri, while this month would have Kachidoki and Skull. The official site's Gaim page doesn't seem to provide any new product listings past March, even when there's been a wave with Durian and Matsubokkuri...

There was a notice awhile ago saying that Set 13 and 14 will be delayed. Set 13 (Durian and Matsubokkuri) was out but delayed for a whole month, but still no new release date for Set 14.

That clears things up, thank you. It's a shame because not only would that version of Donguri be fantastic to own, but I like the tiny Kachidoki. :laugh: Suppose there's always the candy toy version.
