V3 from Kamen Rider The Next (2007)

Japanese tokusatsu (live action films with special effects) - don't really follow them these days but definitely want to get the DVD of "Kamen Rider The Next" which is a sequel to "Kamen Rider the First", a retelling of the Kamen Riders/Masked Riders with an updated look which means cooler costumes, unlike the very basic ones of the Showa era.

The Shocker organisation sends Kamen Rider Version 3 (hence "V3") alongside six new Shocker Riders to attack Kamen Riders 1 & 2. Don't hold your breath for oscar-winning scripts or performances - this movie is just to drool at cool costumes.

The new look V3 (supposedly fashioned after the dragonfly whilst Kamen Riders 1 & 2 get their look from grasshoppers)

V3's "Double Typhoon" belt

The stamp of Shocker (which stands for "Sacred Hegemony Of Cycle Kindred Evolutional Realm" - still trying to figure out what it means)
