Talk About Lucky! (That’s an Order): An UCHUU SENTAI KYURANGER Review

I was determined not to come back with another Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger review that talked predominately about lead character Lucky, but it seems my fate was written in the constellations. This show, about a team of futuristic space trekkers boldly going up against the Jark Matter Empire, quickly became a new favorite for me, winning me over with its adventurous theme, great characters, and fun ideas. To this day, my feelings in that regard have not changed. Though I suppose I've squished those sentiments into a tiny side pocket now that the show has so aggressively pursued one of Super Sentai's worst habits: Putting an inordinate amount of attention onto the dude in red. The luckiest liberator in the whole wide universe is not only the unofficially official leader of this enormous team...
Review: Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger DX Kojishi Voyager

Review: Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger DX Kojishi Voyager

Reviews, Super Sentai, Toku, toku, Toys, Uncategorized
Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger's DX toy line has been pretty hit-and-miss as a whole, but it ends really strong with Kojishi Voyager, aka Caesar. Caesar is a small chibi-like lion toy, similar to Mini-Tyra from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, but instead of combining with a weapon, he combines with a fellow Voyager mech. On its own, I like this little guy, but the real fun begins when you add Shishi Voyager to the mix. Combining the two Voyagers together makes Super Shishi Voyager, my favorite form. This is an amazing form, changing the look of Shishi Voyager from a spaceship with a lion head into a full-fledged lion mecha. The size and silhouette of this thing is great, though I can see fans being bummed out by the lack of articulation. Overall, I think, combined, this is the best Voyager of the wh...
Review: Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger DX Saiko Kyutama

Review: Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger DX Saiko Kyutama

Super Sentai, Toku, Toys
Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger has been running for 30 episodes and the Kyutama gimmick has been stale for a while now, but thankfully the Saiko Kyutama changes the game! This Kyutama is huge and stylized to really stand out from the bunch with its red coloring and beautiful blue ring. It also has its own electronics but unlike the Hikari Kyutama that tried (and failed) to work its sounds in tandem with the Seiza Blaster, the Saiko Kyutama tells the Seiza Blaster to sit back, relax and let it handle all the awesome new sounds. So what can it do? Well, for starters we have 5 attacks with just the Kyutama itself, these have yet to be seen in the show (as of this recording) so we don't know what they do just yet. After you insert it into the Seiza Blaster (or hold the button down with your fin...

Mr. Justice has yet again enlisted the help of the Kamen Roller!
