After the tragic and unexpected passing of Tsuru Hiromi as the original Bulma, a new actress has been hired to succeed her as the blue-haired engineer in the action anime series Dragon Ball Super. Singer and actress Hisakawa Aya has a list of credits as long as a kamehameha wave, adding her voice talents to a plethora of well-known geek properties over the years, including the previous chapter in the DB saga, Dragon Ball Z. Among her other works, she served as the voice of nerd queen Sailor Mercury in the original Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, the sword-wielding Xianghua in the Soul Calibur video games, and the sweet-toothed lion guardian Cerberus in Cardcaptor Sakura. Hisakawa has touched many other beloved properties in her long tenure, including Transformers, Oh My Goddess!, Dete...
Toy Review: LUPINRANGER VS PATRANGER’s  DX VS Changer, All DX Dial Fighters & Trigger Machines

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...
Toy Review: UCHUU SENTAI KYURANGER YUDO Figures Wave 1

Toy Review: UCHUU SENTAI KYURANGER YUDO Figures Wave 1

Reviews, Toku, Toys
Do you like the Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger TV series? Do you like the SODO toy line? Well then this set... is still pretty terrible, I can't recommend it at all. Yudo is the Super Sentai franchise's attempt at matching the success of Kamen Rider's SODO line, but with a fourth of the figures, half the quality and care, yet selling for the exact same price. Wave 1 (the first and last wave, at least for Kyuranger) consists of Shishi Red, Shishi Red Orion, and Hooh Soldier. These figures are sculpted just fine and articulate well but my compliments end there. The plastic quality is absolute garbage and the figures have zero paint applications, in favor of a figure that needs to be 100% stickered up. The SODO line, for the same price, does half paint and half stickers, not to mention the be...

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...
