Last year we traveled thousand miles to attend "Power Morphicon 2014" in Pasadena, California and our team had a wonderful time with our friends & customers there at our booth :) We sold lots of our tokusatsu toys there but, to be honest, we had some left out as well at the time and we did not want to take them back to Japan so we came up an idea to donate the rest of our toys for a local community church in California and we did :)
And the other day, we have received a thank you letter from the same church reporting that they gave our toys to their local children in need of them before their Christmas. We are so thrilled and delighted with this letter and happy about what we did and just want to share with our friends and customers.
So it it no secret that Kamen Rider Agito, the 2nd Heisei Rider, does not have his "Alter Ring (known as DX Triple Flash Henshin Belt) " in the Complete Selection Modification line until now. Not fair :(
Knowing other Kamen Riders get their CSM releases, and we have not heard the good news for Agito at this point if we are correct.
So this week, let's talk about that!
[KR Agito Question] Agito is the 2nd Heisei Rider. If Bandai is to sell KR Agito's CSM Triple Flash (Henshin Belt) in future, what would it be #1 priory for you to have the set? We will share it at our next FM Live Show at https://t.co/woYK4Bwzqo #cstoys #tokuwave #Agito #CSM

Kamen Rider Agito continued the Heisei Rider series as a spiritual successor to Kuuga. While initially having some small references to the 2000 series, the show eventually set those aside and continued to be its own independent story. Kamen Rider Agito transformed with the Alter Ring (known simply as the "Triple Flash DX Henshin Belt" in the toy line). Much like Kuuga's Arcle, it would appear when summoned from within by Shouichi and used to transform. The toy, much like the Arcle, was able to transform between Agito's Ground Form, Storm Form, and Flame Form. With an additional piece, sounds for the Burning and Shining Forms were also obtainable. Unfortunately due to the loud motor for the middle spinner, a lot of the sounds are difficult to hear.
Agito was also the first series in the Heisei Era to feature more than one Rider with the arrival of Kamen Rider Gills and Another Agito. Both Gills and Another Agito didn't use transformation belts, instead simply transforming from their human forms to their "Agito" forms after saying the iconic "Henshin!". However, both characters featured a belt like feature on their designs. Kamen Rider Gills sported the Meta Factor while Another Agito sported the Ank Point. The Meta Factor was released in toy form in a special Kamen Rider Gills roleplay set, though it featured only a few sounds and was a more simplified release. The Ank Point was unfortunately never released.
Join us next week for the belts of Kamen Rider Ryuki!
