Pentawhatnow? (via Star Ten Thousand)

Tempting, but I bearly know you at all my dear. Also, I’m not all that into paganism, so it might not work out. (For everyone else seeing this, just read the fine print at the bottom)

Pentawhatnow? Today, I compared Pentacost (which is today, apparently) to that one episode of Babylon 5 where Kosh comes out of his encounter suit. Then I compared the disciples to the Power Rangers and Peter to that one special Ranger who shows up later in the series with the silver/gold/white/whatever Zord, like Zhane in Power Rangers in Space.* (Yes, I watched Power Rangers, and yes, In Space was my favorite. My pre-teen self thought Andros was very very yu … Read More

Go-Kaiger’s Grand Powers: Count za Powas!

I know, OOO reference, but it still works. Anyway, between the movie, the recent episodes, and the arrival of Go-KaiSilver, the Go-Kaigers have come into a lot of new powers. So let’s see what they’ve got so far:

Starting with powers they’ve collected in the series so far, they’ve obtained grand powers from: Magiranger, Dekaranger, Gekiranger, Gaoranger, Shinkenger, and Carranger.

From the Go-Kaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Battle movie, they actually obtained grand powers from: Goranger, JAKQ, Denjiman, Goggle V, Dynaman, Bioman, Turboranger, Dairanger, Boukenger, Go-Onger, and Goseiger.

And with the arrival of Go-KaiSilver, they will obtain powers from: Zyuranger, Timeranger, and Abaranger. And supposedly, they will also obtain the Hurricanger‘s Grand Power soon, in the form of FuuRaiMaru.

And that just leaves: Battle Fever J, SunVulcan, Changeman, Flashman, Maskman, Liveman, Fiveman, Jetman, Kakuranger, Ohranger, Megaranger, Gingaman, and GoGoV. So that means they only have 13 powers (excluding the yet-to-be-collected Hurricanger powers) left to collect! And they’re only 17 episodes in! This really is quite the series.

Now it’s not really known for certain if the Grand Powers they obtained in the movie will in fact carry over into the series (other than the confirmed Goseiger powers), but so far the movie has been confirmed as a continuation of the storyline from last week’s episode, so who knows. They might even use GorenGo-KaiOh again (just look at the Go-KaiOh formation above, combination of Go-KaiOh and Varidrine, the carrier ship used by the Gorangers).

Go-Kaiger Ep.17 Pics: Ooh, shiny!

Here are some screen shots from this week’s episode. Sorry I never do actual reviews:

In the Go-Kaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Battle movie the premiered on Saturday, they apparently do get the Goseiger’s grand power, along with a few others (check next post).

Here’s Gai, watching this big opening fight scene, grinning ear-to-ear. He does introduce himself, and follows them around trying to get them to let him join, but they ignore him for the most part.

This is when they run into this week’s Action Commander and fight him the first time, using the Sixth RangerKeys they got from Basco the week before. Gai does try to jumo in during this fight, but the Action Commander runs off before he has a chance to.

This is from a scene where Gai really tries to get the other to let him join, even revealing his day-dream to them. Needless to say, they tell him off and leave him where he was, thinking that he was just some obsessed idiot.

And this is where he later reveals himself as Go-KaiSilver. This image is from a very long and drawn out self-introduction that pulls a lot from past introductions. Hopefully, they’ll shave it down to size in the next one. Really shows how much of a fanboy he is. And I couldn’t find any pics from the henshin sequence itself, but let’s just say it was like the others, only with the anchors, and they came down from a point above him, similar to the Titanium Ranger or Quantum Ranger morph sequences. Makes you wonder just how much Koichi Sakamoto is trying to get Saban to make this series.

Don’t let this pic fool you, he actually faired very well against the Gormin, he just had a harder time against the Action Commander.

This is what his Final Wave looks like. Mothaf*cka got impaled!

And these are some shots from the next episode:

We finally get to see Go-JyuJin in action! But we’ll have to wait two weeks to see it! 😦

Next week there won’t be any new episodes of Go-Kaiger or Kamen Rider OOO, both shows will be on break. However, new episodes will premiere the week after on June 26th, so try to hang in their until then. You can always wait for the subs to come out, or go through and catch up on previous episodes you weren’t able to watch before, or you can always stock up on Go-Kaiger stuff. I know where you can find cheap Go-Kaiger themed t-shirts! 😉

Go-Kaiger Cheaper Toys release: Might not be Bandai DX, but still, you know, okay…

So as most people know, the toy tradition in Japan is very different from what it is over here. You see, instead of having just one toy company contracted to make the various toys, game, and whatnot, there are often several, making different toys at different price ranges, often working together to make their toys compatible (excluding special releases and collector’s items). So for people buying this stuff, it’s easier to find the same thing with a cheaper price tag. And this is especially for anyone who would have to order these toys and have them shipped to another country. And that’s why we have stuff like Gashapon and Narikiri releasing Sentai and Rider stuff along with Bandai. But enough with some drawn out explaination, let’s get to the good stuff!:

These are the Gashopon RangerKey Set 4, and the Narikiri Set 2. While I’m not sire on any of the pricing, I know that they will certainly be much cheaper than the normal or DX sets from Bandai. So hopefully this makes it easier for anyone collecting this stuff (I talking to you, PaladinZeo). A bit of fair warning though, I can’t really speak for the quality of these sets, they have a bit of a reputation for not really being on par with the Bandai sets, but at a cheaper price, can you really complain all that much?

Eternal: RETURNS!; The Shock of the Century!

We’re getting closer to the release of this Kamen Rider W V-Cinema Release, Kamen Rider W RETURNS: Kamen Rider Eternal, we’re getting more info on the movie itself, and it’s shocking ending!

In this movie, Kamen Rider W is still fighting aagainst the remaining dopants, when a mysterious woman with psychic powers appears. The woman, calling herself Mina (played by Takahashi Rin) has come to take revenge on W for the defeat of Daido Katsumi (a.k.a. Kamen Rider Eternal) because she thought Katsumi was a hero, and that “Katsumi was going to save us from hell”. And that’s when she reveals Katsumi’s past as a hero, and the events that lead to the formation of NEVER and Katsumi becoming Kamen Rider Eternal.

And with the release of Kamen Rider W FOREVER Director’s Cut, theses images, supposedly from an alternate ending, have been leaked to the web. Just tell me if the person in this pic looks familiar:

I’ve gotta say, if they had used this image, then the overall story arc would definitely have taken a different turn. Of course, this could also be a spoiler of sorts for future Kamen Rider W projects. Who knows for sure, but if I hear anything, I’ll let you know.
