I guess they wanted to surprise everyone on the 3 year anniversary of its premier, which is today.

To be quite honest,I dunno why Bandai made a DX Driver for a series clearly not aimed with children in mind.

I guess because the series was the first of its kind and they weren’t sure how well it would be liked, so they didn’t invest much into the only toy for season 1.

Edit: And a sample of the CSM Amazons Driver is already on display at the CCG Expo currently going on in China.

What a beauty that thing is. I never even finished Amazons Season 1, still on the list. But I do love the belt. The DX version being Premium Bandai annoyed me and I refused to pay so much for it.

Probably won't get the CSM either but it'd be nice to watch the reviews...? xD

Well that was unexpected...

I'm all for this, especially since the Neo Amazons Driver received a CSM-quality release right out of the gate. According to the blog, this came third place in the Twitter poll they held last year, behind the Delta Gear and Blay Buckle.

So there are two separate covers this time round, rather than one changeable one. The only concern for me right now is that there's no sign of one for Amazon Sigma, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

If I get the CSM one then I'll put my DX up for sale.

It says on the CSM blog that it will include a little more than what was on display, so that could mean a Sigma Faceplate, or possibly something random like the gold Amazons Register from the end of season 1, or the unique Amazons Register used by Neo Alpha to go with the previous Neo Amazons Driver release.

Sigma faceplate is a pretty obvious inclusion (the DX version had the sounds anyway and it's the same mold). Otherwise I assume just small improvements - the size, maybe add some functionality to the register, more sounds, etc. Possibly a better but still not screen-accurate version of the weapon (battler grip) - I think the original had one but it was small and not great. Not a full size one but just some more detailing.

Not sure about the Militant Amazons Register because it's the most obvious thing we're missing but it goes with the Neo Driver, not this one. Would be a less weird inclusion than a mobile though.

I kinda want it, just cause I really dug Alpha from that series.
But never wanted to play CSM price for a DX toy.

True about the Militant Amazons Register being relevant to the Neo Amazons Driver, although the Neo Driver did come with the Sigma faceplate for the original DX Amazons Driver, so there is a precedent for it.

The original Driver did have a tiny plastic blade to attach to the handle, yes. Pretty lame, to be honest - I would like to see it made a little bigger this time round. Maybe even include different options as seen in the show (scythe, spear etc.)

First wave of the CSM BlayBuckle sets delayed until August, but the first wave will still be shipped before the second wave which is still set for August shipment.

Yes, it comes with all the Kamen Ride, Final Attack Ride, and Final Form Ride cards of the first 10 heisei riders, and the Kamen Ride and Final Attack Ride cards of the rest.

And the 20 Final Kamen Ride cards of the heisei riders final forms that come with the Neo DienDriver are confirmed to work with the Neo DecaDriver, it is unknown if the rest of the cards work as well.

Okay, so I just pre-ordered the CSM Amazons Driver. It was inevitable, I suppose - as was the cost!

https://p-bandai.jp/item/item-1000137492

So in a nutshell: 4 faceplates (Alpha, Sigma and two for Omega), 4 BGM tracks (including the two theme songs), cast dialogue, a scythe attachment, and the Amazons Register armband also with lights and sounds. All in all, quite a nice package.

Can anybody enlighten me on what the second Omega faceplate is about, though? Google Translate calls it the "Fullness Version" but I have no idea what it's for. My Amazons memory must be rusty but I don't remember Omega's belt ever changing in appearance like that.

It’s to recreate an effect sometimes seen in the show. One instance specifically is Omega’s first henshin, where the eyes of the driver looked bloodshot, and a more accurate translation of the name of the faceplate is “bloodshot version”.
