Is it just me, or does Vulcan look more like a main Rider, and Zero-One looks more like a third Rider?

the art may be slightly different, but they're obviously the same form
They don't look exactly like the same form because of the shoulder pads are different, one of them looks like it has more armor bits and they have a different chest design than the other.

It's the color, we haven't really had a yellow main. We had gold with Agito but no real yellow.

Well, all the rkf figures cost 2,500 but Zero-One shinning hopper cost 4,300 yen, so it might have a functionality like cast off?

Looking at the figures Valkyrieís shape is a little stout compared to the others. And I canít help but notice the hips are a little more shapelier as well. Actually Valkyrie reminds of an old figure of Deka Pink my friend once had. So Iím 60-70% sure itís a female. Escpicially in Bee mode the arms are far less developed than Vulkans sitting next to her/him.

yeah ok, looking at the listings, it's called shining assault hopper, so a fusion of shining hopper and assault wolf. it probably doubles for the regular shining hopper

Vulcan looks more like some of the more recent main Riders, I guess, but I've not been a fan of many of them.

Zero One is the first Rider I've seen in years where are first glance I've thought, "Wow, that is cool." Not, "Oh, that looks kind of neat," or, "Oh, God, what have my eyes done to deserve this?"

Zero-One looks weirdly mook-ish like a modern-day Shocker Trooper. He still looks cool tho. I really like how sleek he looks and his forms skew more towards Gaim-Armor where the armor looks modular and adds to the suit, and not Zi-O Armor where Zi-O's base suit already looks bulky and the armor is just another form and looks extra bulky.

The gimmick does look like a cassette tape and Zero-One does have a Spider-Man vibe to his look, so the rumors have been pretty close this year.

Also Valkyrie looks female and not in the way people assume Zi-O was female with his bigger chest plate. But from the figure and overall design.

Briefcase weapons and casette tape trinkets is a bit of an odd gimmick, but it does suggest a vaguely spy-like setting. Though I don't know what sort of spy would need something like Mammoth.

What if they're not really briefcases, they're actually boom boxes which works either way.

The scans say "attache mode", so they're definitely briefcases.

Vulcan looks like something that would show up in "Amazons" IMO

So a yellow lead Rider with a grasshopper motif and a blue secondary who uses a gun. Though if the colors were slightly different, Vulcan's motifs wouldn't remind me of G3, but RyuGunOh. Man, Ryukendo was such a strange one-off of a show.

It will be really interesting if Zero-One have noir spy story with futuristic technology..

And, I really want Kamen Rider Zero-One series are using jazz music for opening and OST.....

I mean it's not the first time Kamen Rider/toku have ulterior secondary themes to their gimmicks.

I hope we see mammoth more than we see Time Majin, Power Dizer, Sukia Arms, that one lizard ship Ghost had, etc.

All of those required CGI. It could be a physical suit like Maximum Ex-Aid, but that has its own set of problems.

Maybe it's the eyes, but now I'm getting a Sazer-X vibe from the suits.

Even the logo is Kikaider 01 influenced. It's almost like Toei felt "yeah, the last post-anniversary series was Kikaider influenced with the half-half suit...so let's really run with the sequel this time around". (yeah W wasn't Kikaider influenced but it did at least have the suit and a blue/red form)
