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

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

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

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...
