Yeah.....that Rider Advent Belt sure looks neat. I wouldn't mind giving it a try.

I must admit, the Advent

I must admit, the Advent Belt looks nice. It's a lot different from its Japanese counterpart, the V-Buckle :)

I was hoping for another stab at Kamen

I like the Kamen Rider Black toys Bandai released in the 90's, and I'm jazzed that the motorcycle toys feature LED. The show ain't bad, but it's in a crummy time slot. All in all a great time to be a US fan.

Yeah, I don't think the

Yeah, I don't think the show is half bad considering the audience it's shooting for and the laws it has to follow over here. I think Kit Taylor (KR Dragon Knight) could grunt a little more emphatically when he's hit (it sounds too weak, under-acted), and the title song is rather bland without even a full first phrase even if the theme sounds cool!
There's some real dedication to Kamen Rider going here, and I think that transition was smooth. While I might find "Kamen Rider Ryuki" more in-depth and engaging (I give the Japanese source materials the benefit of the doubt even though I haven't seen earlier than "...Blade"), I'd say that "Kamen Rider Dragon Knight" is doing well.

But I also agree that an earlier time-slot would help tremendously. (They used to treat PR the same way when it first came out-late morning, bounced around the schedule.)

I got a pre-release

I got a pre-release sampler from Bandai America, so I have a small insight into the cards...

Every toy in the KRDK line (vehicles, figures, weapons) will come with a single Advent Deck card. I don't know how it was done with "Kamen Rider Ryuki", but each US-ver. Card has unique holes punched into the top of them. Then- I'm assuming- when you run the card through a one of the summoning devices (called?), and it will produce a sound specifically for that Card.
Now, for example, will Wing Knight's Final Vent card sound different from Dragon Knight's Final Vent card? I don't know; it will depend on how the Advent Cards have the holes punched-in.

I have requested a sampler of Kamen Rider Torque's blaster/Card reader so that I can demonstrate this on CDX, but when that will happen I have no idea.

. . .

Oh, that reminds me- "Kamen Rider Dragon Knight" is being moved to a new timeslot for me this next weekend 10:30/11:30am Central. WEither that means the ratings suck or it's kicking ass. (How can I view official TV ratings for the show!?)
