Heads Up 27 by SeanRM Heads Up 27 by SeanRM
Let's Go!! Rider Week continues with the first Kamen Rider to fly.

After five connected series, it was decided to start fresh and make the new series a stand alone return to the original's themes. As such, 1979's Kamen Rider (often called New Kamen Rider) featured a completely new cast, and pitted our young hero transforming into the mighty Kamen Rider to fight against the forces of Neo Shocker. The show continued as a separate series until the 20th episode, when Kamen Rider Stronger appeared to aid the young warrior. Stronger would dub the new Rider "Skyrider", and officially welcome him as the eighth Kamen Rider.

Skyrider stands out from the others; not only being based on a locust instead of a grasshopper, but having the power to fly.

I actually based it on an original design picture by Ishinomori, instead of the suit from the show. That and the speed lines give it a great retro-manga feel.
