Recently during the Tamashii Cyber Fes 2020, Tamashii Nations unveiled S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Zero-One Shining Assault Hopper. However, in a surprising twist this subsidiary of Bandai, quickly activated the pre-order page for the item on Premium Bandai; this makes the product the quickest item shown at an event to be placed up for order. Now, for those possibly unaware of this item, the figure is based upon an upgrade form to the titular hero of Kamen Rider Zero-One. In the series, Aruto Hiden obtains the form through combining his Shining Hopper Progrise Key with the enhancement module Assault Grip, thus becoming the Shining Assault Hopper Progrise Key. Then by activating the Progrise Key within the Hiden Zero-One Driver the form is realized. Furthermore, the form made its debut in episode 15 of the series. Below is the official gallery for the figure from Bandai:
The figure will contain:
- Three pairs of optional hands & an additional right hand
- Authorise Buster (Ax Mode)
Pre-orders for S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Zero-One Shining Assault Hopper are currently open on Premium Bandai. Orders for a single figure are priced at 6600 yen, with orders schedule to ship in September. 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.
