Kamen Rider Fourze - Hyper Hobby (Sept Issue)

Kamen Rider Fourze is the main rider in the Kamen Rider Fourze. His name roughly says Forty, an indication of the Kamen Rider Series 40th anniversary and the forty different powers he can access with the Astro Switches.
The main protagonist, Gentaro Kisaragi, is a second year student in Amanogawa High School, who has a delinquet appearance but is actually really friendly and wants to make friends with people in the school by forming the Kamen Rider Club to investigate the urban legends of Kamen Riders in town. Kengo Utahoshi joins the club and reveals that he has acquired a strange belt and items called Astro Switches but is unable to use them and gives them to Gentaro. When Gentaro uses the items in combination, he is able to transform into Kamen Rider Fourze and fight the Zodiart menace.
Kamen Rider FourzeEditGentaro is given the equipment to become Kamen Rider Fourze by Kengo. Fourze is based off a space craft and roughly the retired Space Shuttle. After Gentaro inserts four Astro Switch into the Fourze Driver Belt, then he pulls the lever on the side of his belt, and he transforms into Kamen Rider Fourze. Gentaro tends to say "Space is Here!" (宇宙キター, Uchū Kitā?) when transforming into Kamen Rider Fourze. Similar to his predecessors, Kamen Rider Double and OOO, Fourze uses combinations with the Astro Switches and their modules. However unlike the Gaia Memories and O Medals, only a few of the Astro Switches changes Fourze into a different form (known as 'States'). Kamen Rider Fourze has shapes on his limbs where the Modules attach: Circle for the right arm, Cross for the right leg, Triangle for the left leg, and Square for the left arm. Kamen Rider Fourze also has a turbine on his back not only used to fly, but also used to control posture.
Base State is Kamen Rider Fourze's default form. This States can be accessed without any specific Astro Switch. Using the Rocket Module, Fourze can perform the Rocket Rider Punch. By using the Rocket and Drill Modules, Base States can perform the Rocket Drill Kick Rider Kick Limit Break. 
Info on various 'Astro Switches':
The Astro Switches are special push-button switches that hold a special energy called the Cosmic Energy (コズミックエナジー, Kozumikku Enajī?) that are the center of Kamen Rider Fourze's powers. By pushing the buttons on the Switches, Kamen Rider Fourze can turn it "on" (オン?) to access Modules. There are 40 known Astro Switches in total.
1.Rocket Switch (ロケットスイッチ, Roketto Suitchi?, Circle): The Rocket Switch arms Kamen Rider Fourze with the Rocket Module (ロケットモジュール, Rokketto Mojūru?) on his right arm, allowing him to fly. By enabling the Exhaust Thruster, Fourze can add 40t more force to his punches.
2.Launcher Switch (ランチャースイッチ, Ranchā Suitchi?, Cross): The Launcher Switch arms Kamen Rider Fourze with the Launcher Module (ランチャーモジュール, Ranchā Mojūru?) on his right leg, allowing him to attack enemies from a far distance. The module can launch 5 missiles to attack an enemy.
3.Drill Switch (ドリルスイッチ, Doriru Suitchi?, Triangle): The Drill Switch arms Kamen Rider Fourze with the Drill Module (ドリルモジュール, Doriru Mojūru?) on his left leg, allowing him to drill through the ground and pierce enemies with a powerful kick. It spins around 200 rpm.
4.Radar Switch (レーダースイッチ, Rēdā Suitchi?, Square): The Radar Switch arms Kamen Rider Fourze with the Radar Module (レーダーモジュール, Rēdā Mojūru?) on his left arm, allowing him to detect any enemies that are not visible and reflect certain waves. The module can also be used with the Launcher Module to launch homing missiles.
5.MagicHand Switch (マジックハンドスイッチ, Majikku Hando Suicchi, Circle): The Magic Hand Switch arms Kamen Rider Fourze with the MagicHand Module on his right arm allowing him to use a large manipulator arm which gives him an extra 10m reach and pick up heavy objects using the End Effect Pench (エンドエフェクトペンチ, Endo Efekuto Penchi?).
