    Hey, last year I preordered the Figure Rise Standard Kamen Rider OOO model from BBTS and it was supposed to be released in December but it keeps getting pushed back, I was just wondering if anyone knew what’s going on since it’s more than half a year later and it says estimated third quarter 2022.

    BBTS is really weird when it comes to model kits. I preordered the Hi-Nu when it went up for the initial release and I have yet to recieve an invoice. If you see any model kit up for preorder on BBTS consider it on backorder and don't believe the release date they have on their site. Right now you could either wait it out for find some other hobby shop and see if they have it in stock.

    To be fair to BBTS, all Bandai models are experiencing a shortage and Bandai has publicly declared they're prioritizing domestic suppliers over foreign ones, so North American retailers have no idea exactly when their orders will be filled.

    It's also why I'm still waiting on Kuuga Titan Form to show up on any of my Canadian hobby sites.

    That's true but I've clearly been recieving various emails relating to restock from various US hobby shops that primarily deal in model kits, so the US is clearly still receiving shipments but I have yet to see BBTS restock any of these kits and when you receive an email like this:
    ah geeez man.PNG
    You kind of have to wonder what exactly is going on over there when it comes to bandai model kits as a whole?

    P.S. I have yet to recieve an email/charge regarding that the model kit, that the email is reffering to, has arrived in my PoL...

    The issue is not that the US isn't getting stock, it's just not prioritized, and it's different from product line to product line and even specific kits. Especially ones that are backordered or additional print runs after release.

    It's not that there's not product, there's just not enough to go around. The model you specifically backordered is an old one and if it is reprinted it's not likely in large volumes. Same thing happened to me with the HG Helmwige Reincar. Backordered for literal years on HLJ and even though it was just reprinted the other month my order never got filled. (and I know it was reprinted because it had the new blue Bandai logo, which the kit had never had before in its production lifespan) I ended up finding one of Mandarake and cancelled my HLJ, and HLJ is a Japanese retailer that would logically have priority over someone like BBTS.

    Bandai, and Japan in general, is going through a plastic shortage on top of increased demand. Kits are either not being reprinted or having very limited, selective runs. I don't even know if the old HGUC Z'Gok-E has been reprinted lately.

    Luckily Bandai is planning to open two new model factories next year to meet demand.

    And here I was worried Geats would have the most elaborate suit by a mile given the amount of rumored Riders.

    Let me guess, he's a villian who will start the show very serious and then become a moronic bumbling dumbass halfway through after becoming a good guy.

    The suit actor looks super tiny under all that armor. They should’ve chosen some jacked dude.

    the shoulder pad to arm ratio is way off and the ankle armor hangs like a child wearing his older brother’s clothes.

    cool design otherwise, but that dude needs to do some deadlifts

    Kamen Rider Rogue/Gentoku Himuro from Build comes to mind. There's Alain from Ghost.

    Yep, but at least Alain got even more badass as Necrom compared to Himuro.

    That's how I'm feeling about the Geats designs so far. Armour is too bulky, it looks kind of cheap and ill-fitting. I got too spoiled by the majority of forms from Zero One and Revice being fairly form-fitting.

    The aesthetic overall is a bit cartoony and overly toy-like, which is not really my thing. I've certainly seen worse, though.

    Yeah, I'm completely turned off to everything Geats... I loved Revice, so I'm kind of salty too that it's ending and the replacement is so underwhelming. Personally, I don't care for Fortnite and shooting games either, so the motif already put me off, but none of the designs or the cast looks that intriguing to me either...

    I could be pleasantly surprised, but I also really hate Yuya Takahashi's writing--it suffers from what I'd describe as "One Piece" syndrome, tries to be serious here and there, but then descends into goofiness and "we can do anything.. cuz of our friendship... *heart*" bullshit halfway through. Wouldn't be surprised at all if Dr Kain isn't absolutely right about Buffa becoming a clown and an ass-kisser to Ace halfway through the show.

    Except One Piece is good...

    I'm mixed on Takahashi as I loved Zero-One, but Ex-Aid was atrocious, thus, he's 50/50 for me. At least for Kamen Rider. His Lupin III movies were exceptional despite the story being left unfinished.

    But hen again, he did write Zero-One Others...

    Agreed, there’s something off with all the designs. The fabric they chose for the body suits is baggy and untextured, and the unpowered up armor parts look like foam painted black.

    Then there the issue of the giant heads used for a majority of the suits.It’s kinda like they looked at those goofy fortnite designs and decided to use the bear headed design for everything.

    there’s some cool stuff here, I like the main riders weapon a lot for example, but a lot of it feels unrefined or uninspired.

    This was his original color scheme, right? When did his outfit change?
