After being teased for months, Bandai has finally provided information regarding the release for S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Valkyrie Rushing Cheetah. The product is going to be sold as a Summer 2020, Premium Bandai exclusive. Now for those unaware, the figure is based on the third Rider, Kamen Rider Valkyrie/ Yue Yaiba (portrayed by Hiroe Igeta) in Kamen Rider Zero-One. In the series, Yue Yaiba is established as an agent of AIMS, fighting the rouge Humagear. However, it is later revealed that she also works for the corrupt Zaia Enterprise, a rival to Hiden Intelligence. To combat her enemies, Yue transforms into Kamen Rider Valkyrie via the AIMS ShotRiser and Rushing Cheetah Progrise Key. Nevertheless, below is the official gallery from Premium Bandai:
The figure will contain:
- Four pairs of optional Hands
- AIMS ShotRiser
Pre-orders for S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Valkyrie Rushing Cheetah open tomorrow, February 21 at 4:00 pm JST at Premium Bandai. The figure is scheduled to release in July 2020, and it is priced at 6050. Those interested in purchasing the item should contact a middleman service as soon as possible. Furthermore, since previous Premium Bandai Kamen Rider Zero-One S.H.Figuarts have not been made available by Bluefin Brands, fans should not expect this item being distributed to North America.
