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

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...

A month after Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger's first round of toys released, we now get the final missing piece to the wave 1 merchandise: Good Striker. DX Good Striker is a big and bulky mecha with 2 "modes" and 4 various functions. The first mode is his Dial Fighter form, where he more closely resembles one of the Lupinranger's mecha and, through some very simple and not-so-creative motions, he can assume his Trigger Machine form to more closely resemble the Patranger's mecha. Honestly, I think most people would agree Good Striker was really only meant to be an aerial vehicle. It's the mode he looks the best in and his car mode is a stretch at best, though I do admit the slight changes do make him fit in better with the respective teams. Good Striker also ...

Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER’s DX VS Changer, All DX Dial Fighters & Trigger Machines

Reviews, Super Sentai, Toku, Toys, Uncategorized
The Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger toy line has started off on a fairly high note. The concept of one Morpher being utilized slightly differently by both teams is an interesting one and the VS Changer pulls this off well, almost feeling like 2 separate Morphers. The toy can be purchased in 2 separate ways as well. One being the Lupinranger version and the other being the Patranger version. The VS Changer itself doesn't vary from set to set but rather the included mecha, being either the Red Dial Fighter or Trigger Machine Ichigo. In the end, regardless of which version you purchase, all of the DX Trigger Machines and Dial Fighters are available for individual purchase separately. The gun, for the most part, is white with black and orange highlight, and clear re...
Review: Kamen Rider Build DX Legend Rider Full Bottle Sets

Review: Kamen Rider Build DX Legend Rider Full Bottle Sets

Kamen Rider, Reviews, toku, Toys, Uncategorized
With any gimmick-heavy Kamen Rider series comes the "Legend Rider" merchandise. Basically, this means the fans can get a taste of some of the older Kamen Riders in their new driver toy. Kamen Rider Build, however, does something very clever with its Legend Rider gimmick that very few seasons can match. Here we have the Ex-aid Full Bottle set and the W Full Bottle set. Ex-Aid is broken up in to the DX Doctor Full Bottle and the DX Game Full Bottle, while W is broken up into the DX Tantei (Detective) and DX USB Memory Full Bottles. This is awesome as it both encapsulates the core of Build's gimmick, being organic and inorganic objects coming together, and the main themes of the individual series. Overall, these are great for any Kamen Rider Ex-Aid or Kamen Rider W fans. It's great to remin...

‘Kamen Rider W: Fuuto Detectives’ Knows Which Way The Wind Blows

In the summer of 2010, tokusatsu fans said goodbye to the lovable heroes of the Narumi Detective Agency, and the many wacky denizens of Fuuto City, when Kamen Rider W came to an end. Of course, several appearances occurred after that, but the loss of this pulpy action-noir world in regular doses was perhaps felt more strongly for some than with most other titles in the Kamen Rider pantheon. While the tradition of a new Kamen Rider taking up the spotlight from the old with each passing year continued to be observed, introducing us to many wondrous new facets of this crazy franchise, there was always a special place in my heart for the two-in-one detectives, Shotaro and Phillip, and their quest to rid the city of dangerous contraband known as Gaia Memories. It's with this thought in min...
