Thanks to a few unauthorized cameras, we were able to see and learn alot from this year’s Tokyo Toy Show, including a lot of upcoming stuff for Go-Kaiger. One of the big rumors we got out of the Go-Kaiger exhibit was the not-displayed Legend Machine for Go-Onger, which, according to the rumors so far, is an F1 Racer version of Engine Speedor. Here’s a sketch:
No one was actually allowed to bring cameras inside, so someone made this sketch of what it looks like and how it works. Go-KaiMachine Speedor is about 1.5 times bigger than the PatStriker, and can combine with either Go-KaiOh or Go-JyuJin. It’s also rumored that it will also double as the Turboranger‘s Grand Power, much like how Gaolion doubles for both the Gaoranger and Shinkenger Grand Powers, but this rumor is unconfirmed. Then again the whole of this rumor is still unconfirmed, so who knows for sure.
Aside from this, someone was able to take a pic of this:
It’s Go-KaiMachine FuuRaiMaru! The Grand Power for Hurricanger, FuuRaiMaru has can divie into five parts, with a special unfolding gimmick in the arms, and several shuriken-based weapons. And it also comes with a Seppujin helmet, prompting rumors that it can combine Go-KaiOh and Go-JyuJin into one larger robo.
And it looks like the Go-Kaigers are also getting a new weapon, a traditional Sentai Bazooka weapon, modeled after Go-KaiGalleon. It’s said to come with five RangerKeys.
That’s it for now, if I run into anything else, I’ll let you know!

After 18 years, the only crossover of two of Japan’s favorite superheroes, Ultraman and Kamen Rider, will finally be out on Blu-Ray and DVD October 26th.
Ultraman vs. Kamen Rider is the first and only crossover special between the two series, and includes clips from both series (from the original series all the way up to the then-current series of both), never before seen clips from both series, and assorted other clips. And to top it all off, a final, literally gigantic, fight scene with Ultraman and Kamen Rider fighting side-by-side.
Until now, the DVD release of this special was uncertain, due to the collaborative nature of the special. And there is word that some of the content of the special has been modified (hopefully, not too much). But, one of the new special features for the movie includes a conversation between Fujioka Hiroshi (Takeshi Hongo/Kamen Rider) and Kurobe Susuma (Hayate/Ultraman). That would be something to see.

In case any of my male readers were hoping to have a chance at dating Ichimichi Mao, aka Luka Milfy/Go-KaiYellow, I’m afraid I’ve got some disappointing news for you.
Recently, at the launch of her first photobook, A Distant Shore, she was asked about her preference in men, what type of guy she was interested in, and she responded (and I quote), “Men? I am only interested in 2D, not 3D!” And for those of you who don’t quite understand her answer, she’s basically saying she’s not interested in dating right now. She also, apparently, has an otaku side, which she’s revealed through various posts on her pesonal blog. (For those interested, here’s her blog: http://ameblo.jp/ichimichi-mao/)
Formerly known as Rio Minami, Ichimichi Mao was born February 1, 1992 in Osaka, Japan (she’s only 19?!). Currently, she plays the role of Luka Milfy/Go-KaiYellow on the popular series Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger.
My apologies, once again, to anyone out their, male or female, who thought (probably delutionally) that they had a chance at dating her. And also to anyone currently in her age group who feels a little depressed now about NOT being a big time celebrity like her. I can relate to both groups.

Here’s part of an interview with Jason David Frank from No Pink Spandex, as he talks about the return of Skull (Jason Narvy) to PRS, and also about how PRS isn’t part of the overall Power Rangers series canon. The way he put it, PRS is actually Saban’s attempt to restart the series, and that, besides the Bulk and Skull charactes, none of the other past Rangers or characters will be on the series. For more, just click the link above.
I’m back, what did I miss? Oh, right, a sh*t load. Anyway, let’s get started!:
Yeah, how do you like these? Some extended sneak peaks from the Go-Kaiger movie, the series, and a ton of toys. Anything you’d like off of here? If so, then go aout and buy it yourself! Personally, I’d like some of the Legend Robos, so that could some up with my own stupid combinations.
