Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where it's dangerous to be related to Riders or Rangers. Kamen Rider Build continues its themes of identity, but also changes the mood by shifting the thrust of the story over to Ryuga (Cross-Z), who is about as close to a comedic relief character as the show gets. It seems that he too has a mysterious and unknown past, but unlike Sento he never recovered it until now. Meanwhile in Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger the tone is shifting in a more serious way, as Kaito (Lupin Red) finds that his target has a similar family situation to him, prompting him to try and help the very person he's also trying to rob. However, events outside of his control seem to make his chances of seeing his brother again about as remote as Ryuga's chance...

Power Rangers HyperForce is kicking into overdrive in this episode of the live roleplay series. After this, only three episodes remain in this Twitch streaming show, so why not throw a couple monkey wrenches into the works before the big finale? The HyperForce team recently added Joe Shih to their official ranks as the new Green Ranger and have now entered the landscape of 2007's television season Power Rangers Operation Overdrive, where the Sentinel Knight, guardian of the fabled Corona Aurora, awaits. Those final faces say it all. https://youtu.be/__klzMY4Z-U Power Rangers HyperForce streams live every Tuesday at 6PM PT from HyperRPG.   You might also like: HERO MAMA LEAGUE: The Mother of all Super Sentai Crossovers Watch: The Silver Ranger Revealed – POWER RANGERS HYP...

Are we all caught up on Power Rangers HyperForce? No? Well, what are you waiting for? The Hyper RPG show based on the Power Rangers TV saga is ramping up toward the end of their season. But before we hit the climax of their time-trekking journey, we'll briefly look back on some of the memorable bits from the story so far. The live gamesters at HyperForce were given a shock as a new player entered the arena in the form of Yoshi Sudarso, the Blue Ranger of Power Rangers Dino Charge. You'd think his brother Peter Sudarso, current Blue Ranger of Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel, would have known ahead of time that Yoshi would be making his first appearance on the show some weeks ago. But what fun would that be, eh? For posterity, we may either relive or experience for the first time, th...

Here's what's happening on the next episode of Kamen Rider Build. https://youtu.be/ZZJbSvHP3I8 Episode 31: Surge, Magma! Banjo Ryuga may not be human… Everyone froze after hearing Misora’s words spoken while fighting Rogue within the Pandora Tower. Rogue was speaking about using human experimentation on Rouge’s girlfriend, Kasumi. Not only that but BloodStark was involved as well. Is Ryuga truly not a human? Meanwhile, the Kamen Riders alongside Sento burst within the Pandora Tower that is being controlled by Stark. Just when that happens, something strange happens to Ryuga…   You might also like: Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 7 VIEWTIFUL JOE: 15 Years Later ULTRAMAN Rights Challenged Once Again, Tsuburaya Productions Back in Court

Kairi starts to blame Touma and Umika for their loss. Keiichiro walks by and passes them in the middle of the night. “Did something happen?” Keiichiro asks, trying to make sense of the situation. As a part of his mission to protect citizens he cannot ignore this situation. Keiichiro eventually mentions he saw a weird guy walking down the street eating ice. Kairi immediately asks him where he saw him last. Kairi suddenly regains hope after having lost part of the Collection…   You might also like: Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER’s DX Cyclone Dial Fighter & DX Tr...
Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 7

Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD SODO Figures Wave 7

Kamen Rider, Reviews, Toku, Toys, Uncategorized
Kamen Rider Build's SODO toy line continues to deliver with wave 7. This wave consists of Kamen Rider Build SmartPhoneWolf form, Kamen Rider Rogue and a third figure of your choosing. The last figure comes with enough pieces to create Engine Bro, Remocon Bro, or Hell Bros form. All these figures are very well done, as you'd expect from SODO, and they come with a fair amount of paint, especially the Hell Bros. I highly recommend getting a case rather than a set for this wave, so that you can have both Bros in your collection. Overall, this is another great wave, and I look forward to more from the SODO line. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWIcEWtxQjs&feature=youtu.be   You might also like: Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER BUILD DX Full Full Rabbit Tank Bottle & DX Full Bottle B...

Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER’s DX Cyclone Dial Fighter & DX Trigger Machine Biker

Reviews, Super Sentai, Toku, Toys, Uncategorized
Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger has proven to be an excellent Super Sentai series, but its toy-line... Well, it's hit and miss. Today, we have the DX Cyclone Dial Fighter and the DX Trigger Machine Biker to talk about. And, while the Biker is clearly better than the Cyclone, neither are too amazing. The Cyclone Dial Fighter is the first upgrade item for the Lupinrangers. As a helicopter, it's pretty cool, mostly green with a unique aesthetic to it. I really like it in this mode. The dial opens up the propeller blades and, well, this is where the toy falls apart. As an "arm", if you can even call it that at this point, it looks awful. Now, in fairness, it's show accurate but it just looks like a broken helicopter attached to a robot. Thankfully, the sounds and in...

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where Japanese heroes strive to discover who they really are. Kamen Rider Build has always had some element of identity within it. Whether it's Sento's (Build) forgotten past, as referenced in the new intro sequence introduced this week, Kazumi (Grease) pretending to have similar amnesia in an attempt to forge a new identity, or the initial mysteries as to who Rogue and Blood Stark were. But this week the question of identity falls to Misora, who displays all three of her personas this episode as the latest chapter of the story begins to dig into the question as to who she is or what is possessing her. Meanwhile in Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger the Global Police are trying to determine if a trio of mild mannered cafe workers ar...

Wedding bells are ringing toward the start of this episode of Power Rangers HyperForce, as an unlikely pairing of figures from the Power Rangers television series is apparently about to tie the knot. The live roleplaying series from streaming platform Twitch inches closer to its season finale, and they're hoping for a second season as they formally welcome a new Ranger into their midst. Now, who could it possibly be? Let's rocket into episode 21 with returning guest star Yoshi Sudarso, a cosplaying fanboy after our own hearts and formerly the Blue Ranger of Power Rangers Dino Charge. https://youtu.be/ePLHDSyGMls Power Rangers HyperForce streams live every Tuesday at 6PM PT from HyperRPG.   You might also like: Watch – MECHA: THE RISE AND FALL OF GIANT ROBOTS Toy Review: ...
