If you absolutely adore the Shin Kamen Rider and his transformation belt, well, then you will want to wear it everywhere you go. OK. Maybe not. Perhaps the sanest way is to have it on your phone, instead of strutting down the street with a giant belt on your waist.
Folks, meet the Henshin Action Case Kamen Rider Henshin Belt Typhoon Initial Type with Prana Forced Discharge Auxiliary Mechanism. I know. The product name is unnecessarily a mouthful but trust me, this is going to be the coolest smartphone case you can get since the Batmobile Tumbler iPhone case.
And also like the Aliens Xenomorph Skull iPhone case, this case is all about visual impact and then some. This phone case is inspired by the Kamen Rider transformation belt as seen in Shin Kamen Rider with a design based on the toy version of the belt. Strangely, though, it is specifically said that it is not designed to protect your phone, instead it is a part novelty phone case and part toy.
Personally, I think it feels more like a fidget spinner. It is equipped with a gimmick that rotates the turbine of the belt which you can activate by manually sliding a lever on the side of the case. Note: it will not transform you into Kamen Rider. The case offers access to the charging port and buttons, and it does not affect the functioning of the speaker. But it will definitely bulk out your phone (about 195 x 95 x 42 mm) and also, you will need to slide open the top left cover to reveal the camera module.
The case is compatible with select iPhone models but exactly which models we are not sure. It also said that it can fit certain Android phones. Again, it is not clear which models. The Henshin Action Case Kamen Rider Henshin Belt Typhoon Initial Type with Prana Forced Discharge Auxiliary Mechanism is expected to be sold at the Kamen Rider Store starting July 2023 for 4,950 yen.
