Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER DX Siren Striker & Victory Striker

Reviews, Super Sentai, Toku, Toys
Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger winds down with its final two VS Vehicles, though both are for the Lupinrangers. First up, we have the DX Siren Striker. Siren Striker is an awesome boxy tank, complete with standard Patranger sirens, big red and gold treads, and a big, extendable cannon. I love the look of this thing as a vehicle and it feels great in the hand. It also looks awesome on the DX VS Changer, giving a new henshin jingle for Super Patren Ichi- I mean Super Lupin X.......because that makes sense.  Odd show choices aside, the sounds are fantastic and the reason you should pick this toy up is because, much like every other VS Vehicle, the mecha formation is pretty lackluster. Once again, in the official configuration, the arms are both Splash and Magic again,

The Lupin team of Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger get their coolest new weapon/mecha yet with the DX Lupin Magnum. The toy is a big red gun, roughly the same size as the DX VS Changer, and the sound effects are exactly what you'd expect. Remember though, this toy isn't just a gun - it's also a Dial Fighter. That means it can combine with the DX VS Changer to activate finishing sound effects. Turning the dial 1, 2 or 3 times, while the two toys are combined creates a strong finishing attack sound that gets progressively stronger with each dial rotation. This toy is great as just a gun but the fun doesn't stop there, now we get into the transformation. By rotating the dial to a specific point and pulling the trigger, the toy partly auto-transforms and gives the

Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER DX Magic Dial Fighter & Trigger Machine Splash

Blog, Super Sentai, Toku, Toys
Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger's toy line continues, after a rather long break, with 2 new mecha: the DX Magic Dial Fighter and DX Trigger Machine Splash. Now, even though these new toys are inherently different, for the first time, they both belong to the same team - the Lupinrangers. First up, we have the DX Magic Dial Fighter, a rare blimp-themed mecha. Visually, this thing is awesome. It feels very different from the usual mecha we get. Turning the dial opens the front, revealing a big, spring-loaded orb inside that can punch enemies. On the DX VS Changer, you get your standard attack sounds and summoning sounds. Ultimately very fun, but not the most exciting thing this toy can do. For the first time in the LvP series, we have a new mecha that changes the c

Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER DX X Changer & X Train Fire / X Train Thunder

Blog, Reviews, Super Sentai, Toku, Toys
Lupin X / Patren X has made his debut into the Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger television series, and of course that means new toys. Today, we have 3 sets for you all: the DX X Changer set, the DX X Train Fire set, and the DX X Train Thunder set. The X Changer consists of X Train Gold and Silver, two individual trains that cannot combine into one like in the show. In this form, X Train Gold's section can make train noises when the trigger is in the proper position. The two X Trains can combine side to side to make the X Changer. When rotated into the right position, the trigger will now make gun shot sounds. Rotating the gun now actives the henshin. Depending on whether X Train Gold or X Train Silver is facing forward will determine the form you make. From there

Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER DX Trigger Machine Crane & Drill

Blog, Reviews, Super Sentai, Toku, Toys
After the phantom thieves of Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger got their two-piece VS Vehicle last month, now it's the cops' turn. The DX Trigger Machine Crane and Drill functions similarly to the DX Scissors and Blade Dial Fighter. They are two separate VS Vehicles that can combine (I use that word loosely) into one solid vehicle. They function with the DX VS Changer together or individually, and they combine with PatKaiser to make PatKaiser Strong. In the DX VS Changer, you get Keisatsu Boost sounds for the two separately and summoning sounds for the two together. As I've said in past videos, I absolutely love the functionally of the VS Vehicles in the Changer, and this set is no exception. However, I've also stated that the mecha this season aren't really my th...

Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER YUDO Figures (Wave 1)

Reviews, Super Sentai, Toku, Toys
Well, last time we looked at the YUDO toy line, my opinion wasn't too positive. This time around, I'm happy to say that YUDO learned from its mistakes with Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger and made the Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger figures much better. SODO still does it the best, in my opinion, but this round of figures is leagues better than the last one. This set consists of 6 figures in 7 boxes, one for each ranger and one box for the accessories. So be warned, without the accessory box, your figures will not come with a single weapon or any additional pieces. The figures themselves are pretty solid. They feel slightly cheaper than SODO figures, but that makes sense since you are getting twice as many figures per wave for the same price and each figure is in its own...

Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER DX Scissors & Blade Dial Fighters, DX Hammer Dial Fighter

Reviews, Super Sentai, Toku, Toys
After both teams in Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger simultaneously received new VS Vehicles last month, now the Lupinrangers get the solo spotlight with the new DX  Scissors and Blade Dial Fighter. This is a fantastic set. Both the Scissors and Blade Dial Fighters are 100% unique and each function together or independently. They both have unique summoning sounds, lock combinations, and gun shot sounds. This set is basically 2 Dial Fighters in one. The "Kaitou Boost" gives the user the massive shield and boomerang in the show, but here, you get snipping sounds for Scissors and metal clashing sounds for Blade. On their own, they each have their own individual "attack modes" with Blade just turning into its sword form and Scissors unfolding its undercarriage to reveal

The next cast in line to join the swelling ranks of the Super Sentai franchise makes up not one super-team, but two. Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patoranger makes history by pitting two equally important groups of superpowered heroes against each other in a co-headlining battle royale. The first official poster is here, and with it comes a brief synopsis of the coming events. Right off the bat, the logo containing the names of both teams looks like that of a "versus movie", as previously mentioned. Observed separately, the two halves don't even look like they belong to the same series. A simple, but effective way to illustrate the differences between the two groups, despite some of their implied similarities. One such similarity can be noted quite easily, with a gla...

Sentai vs Sentai in 2018?!

News, Super Sentai, Toku
In an odd turn of events, Toei Company has filed trademarks for two different names for the next Super Sentai series coming in 2018! The confirmed trademarks state that the teams will be known as Keisatsu Sentai Patoranger, and Kaito Sentai Lupinranger. Now, as the names indicate, the 2018 Super Sentai series may/will feature two teams pit against one another; a team of cops (Patoranger) versus a team of thieves (Lupinranger)! However, this could also just be a similar case to Ninpu Sentai Hurricanger, where the team consisted of two groups, the initial three Hurricangers and the two secondary Gouraigers. It may be too soon to tell what these names really indicate, but interest in the series is quickly building. Once other details are confirmed, updates will follow, so please stay t...
