Shocker Riders by Taiko554
Shocker Riders
And here's the last piece with the original Rider designs.  In the original Kamen Rider series, Shocker eventually creates six villainous riders to combat Riders 1 and 2. 

Left to right, Shocker Riders
6 (pink), 5 (violet), 4 (blue), 3 (green), 2 (white), and 1 (yellow). 

I can understand the budget necessitating a reuse of the rider costumes, but making the only difference a color in scarves is just silly. 

Everything here is my hard work. Please don't touch anything without permission. Thanks.
Kamen Rider 2 by Taiko554
Kamen Rider 2
And right onto the second rider ever!  Kamen Rider 2, Nigou!

Nigou is obviously just a bunch of recolors of Ichigou.  Nigou also has three costumes, from left to right: his original with green accents, his true and most recognizable form with the red boots and gloves and light green helmet, and the cut-n-paste of the previous two.  I actually like the first and original costume the most because I don't like the clashing of red, but whatever.  And like I said on Ichigou's piece, the stripe numbering is odd.

Yay, the original Hopper Duo is done!  We're moving right along.

Kamen Rider 1 by Taiko554
Kamen Rider 1
Whoooooooo!  And so it begins, the riders of the Showa Era!

This here is Kamen Rider 1, Ichigou.  The O.G. rider.  Ichigou was the first rider created and has been in numerous team ups since.  He's a cyborg who fights for justice and began the legacy of masked toku heroes.  I've never seen the original series (or much less any of the Showa era) but it is still cool to see the original Rider still in action at times. 

Ichigou has three costumes.  The first is the blue original suit.  The second is a darker suit apparently referred to as Sakurajima.  The third and final suit is the most recognizable costume for Ichigou, with the silver boots, gloves, and accent stripes and red belt.  The third is also the closest to Nigou, so that has always been a bit annoying to me.  Moreso is that Ichigou has two silver stripes despite being the first rider and Nigou has a single stripe despite being second.  Confusing. 

Anyway, he's finished!  I've decided to start at the beginning and move forward through the series. 
As I said a while ago, I have absolutely no intentions or desires to make the Showa Rider's weapons or civilian appearances.  It'll just be their rider forms and that's it.

Kamen Rider The Next, Shocker Rider by Taiko554
Kamen Rider The Next, Shocker Rider
It wouldn't of felt right including this recolor on the heroes' pic.  In the movie Kamen Rider The Next, Shocker creates six or so more Hoppers to fight the first just 1/Ichigou since he's the only one still fighting.  The three heroes are all fighting the six Shocker Riders and the other villains during the final fight though...and that sequence is great.  Watch it. 

Anyway, there's more than just one.  But unlike the original TV series, there are no discernible differences between the six, they've all got identical coloring and scarves.  So just one figure is perfectly fine.

Kamen Rider the First and Next by Taiko554
Kamen Rider the First and Next
I'm kinda warming myself up to actually tackle the Showa series' riders.  It made sense in my mind to try and make these rebooted suits first. 

The original Kamen Rider series got a reboot-ish/retelling movie in 2005, and then a sequel a couple of years later.  Kamen Rider The First showed off new designs for Rider/Hopper 1 and 2.  The Next movie then gave us a new V3.  

The top row has the first costumes of the three riders.  1/Ichigou is in the middle in blue.  2/Nigou is on the left in the green with few design changes.  V3 is on the right.  1/Ichigou got a worn out colored suit in The Next movie with darker teal coloring and red eyes, included at the bottom.

2/Nigou and V3 were Kamen Riders in other series with 2/Nigou being Raia in KR Ryuki and V3 being Drake in KR Kabuto.  And if you rewatch Kabuto closely enough, there's a super brief cameo by 1/Ichigou outside of the cafe in an episode. 

The movies are pretty well choreographed, if nothing else.  The fights in both are awesome.  The First was a good movie, The Next was extremely creepy and had more of a horror movie aspect to it.  The main thing I didn't like it though was giving backstory to the villains...I don't need to sympathize with the villains, only the heroes.

Apparently stuff like this is OK?

I can't find a single thing in that gallery that wasn't taken from another website, be it an English toku blog (or several), Gaim's production website, actors/actress' personal social media account, etc.  Everything is stolen.  Nothing was created by the user.  I don't get it.  He's not fooling anybody in thinking he created those pictures, right?  Is anybody able to explain why that user is allowed to have an account?  If no, I recommend everybody start reporting the user and any images you can prove are stolen. 

And as a final piece of information: when I asked that user if anything in his gallery was actually his or if he had permission to post ANYthing in his gallery, I was ignored and blocked.  Innocent people in the clear don't sweep things under the rug.

Please and thank you.

United States
I was born and raised in Northern Virginia. I went to college at James Madison University and graduated in 2012 with my Bachelor of Arts degree. I'm happy to say that I finally found work where I can put my degree to good use and I enjoy what I do.

I've been creating pixel art as a hobby for around five or six years and got into the medium while looking for pictures of Super Sentai when I learned that was the base footage for Power Rangers. From there, I became a fan of other tokusatsu programs as well.

It's got more originality than I expected, given the last two theme songs.

Sorry to bug you, but one of your pictures was used without permission. Your picture is located at the very end of the video, for like 3 seconds, but I felt I should tell you anyway.…

Thanks for letting me know.

No problem. According to a good friend of mine, you don't tolerate theft of your art.

The least that they could do is credit Taiko for the pic at the end.
