HurricaneYellow isn't out of the monster-fighting biz just yet. Actor Yamamoto Kohei, known to many Super Sentai fanatics as super-ninja Bito Kota on Ninpu Sentai Hurricanger, is hard at work on a new project for Toei Company. The developing TV series will feature a new hero not affiliated with the likes of Toei's usual suspects from the long-running Kamen Rider and Super Sentai franchises. Kaiju Ward Gallas, as the name implies, is a kaiju show, with giant monsters as a centerpiece. Not a first for Toei, but after years of focusing heavily on their Big Two, this comes as somewhat of a surprise. Kaiju action is more Tsuburaya Productions' thing. With their ongoing Ultraman franchise, they've defined the look and feel of giant monster action on the small screen for decades now. Elsewhe...

It's that time again. A new Power Rangers incarnation is on the horizon, and fitting with recent tradition, we're treated to an early trailer of what lies ahead for us in the coming year for this long-running franchise. In keeping with that tradition, of course, this video features no footage of any members of our new super-team, as it debuted at this month's Power Morphicon event so early that no actual scenes had yet been shot with them. What we do have is lots and lots of footage from 2012's Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, the 36th installment in Japan's Super Sentai brand, from which Power Rangers gets much of its action visuals. Power Rangers is such a unique animal when it comes to modern entertainment, a hybrid between Japanese-produced fight scenes from Toei Company and American-fu...

It's that time again. The 20th entry in the Heisei Era's official Kamen Rider television series franchise is quickly approaching, and ahead of it comes a flood of new images and bits of information from which to glean early opinions. And as we feast our eyes on the new Kamen Rider Zi-O, we wonder what the future may hold for this enduring brand. And the future is very much on the minds of the show's creative forces, as the new series lead will be a time traveler, utilizing powers inspired by the heroes who came before him in the Heisei Era, which comes to an end with this incoming project. As the clock imagery in the title logo implies, this is a watch-themed hero, who changes forms based on the timepieces inserted into his henshin belt, accessing various transformations that will ...

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

In February of 1993, Gosei Sentai Dairanger kung fu kicked onto the scene, and the world of Japanese tokusatsu was a little brighter. As the 17th entry in Toei Company's ongoing Super Sentai franchise, a breath of fresh air was on the menu, and we leave it to history to judge whether it paid off. The series is remarkable to Power Rangers fans for a few reasons. While Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was first hitting the airwaves, based on Dairanger's dinosaur-themed predecessor, Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger, the martial arts practitioners of the Five-Star Task Force were facing a tide of monsters from the dark Gorma Tribe. Later, footage from their adventures would find itself to the west when it was integrated into MMPR's second season. Though many villains and giant mechs were utilized f...
