Did that really just happen? This is the question haunting some viewers as they stepped back into Power Rangers HyperForce, after the surprising events of the previous episode of this live roleplay series. Last we saw, Black Ranger Vesper was struck with a seemingly lethal blast, reducing their six-member team to five in the final moments. As the group struggles to sort out the enemy's master plan, one name, which proves difficult to pronounce, is brought up in the conversation as the new heroes continue to deal with the bizarre circumstances of Vesper's loss. It's Andros, team leader for the crew of star-spanning heroes of 1998's Power Rangers in Space! Time to roll a die. https://youtu.be/sYjKI6HehVA Power Rangers HyperForce streams live every Tuesday at 6PM PT from HyperRPG. &...

Well, here's a twist. One place where you're almost sure not to find any patented daddy issues in the tokusatsu subgenre this year is the upcoming Hero Mama League, a wholly unexpected crossover event that gathers three heroines from Super Sentai television history, for a story about these superpowered ladies balancing their lives as world-saving badasses and the everyday challenges of being a mother. Yeah. This is happening. It comes to us via the Toei Tokusatsu Fan Club app, complimenting Toei Company's recent efforts to keep the spirit alive for the countless heroes running around their seemingly limitless multiverse of demons, aliens, and super-ninjas, righting wrongs long after their original shows leave the airwaves. As we gear up for the next entry into the new ongoing Space Sq...

Reflections on C2E2 2018

Blog, Conventions, Uncategorized
I used to think that every facet of my geekiness had to be kept separate from each other. I’ve had experiences of other geeks judging me, saying my actions or interests were “too geeky” for them, but that is a story for another time. This story is about conventions. Several years ago, I began to attend conventions. Specifically, the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) and Anime Central (ACen), each for the first time in the same year, and I mistakenly thought that C2E2 was only for pop culture things like comics and books while ACen was only for anime. This year’s C2E2 proved me wrong. This year, I especially felt a strong growth of Japanese presence at the con, including the booths and panels. Yes, there have been Japanese fandom items at booths before, but nothing...

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...
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...

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: ...
