New Go-Kaiger Pics: More Machalcon! And some disappointing news…

Hey, new set of pics popped up, mainly of the Go-KaiGalleon Buster, and of Engine Machalcon. Check them out below:

Okay, the more I look at it, the more I keep thinking that there’s going to be a second formation with this and Go-KaiOh, like there was with GaoLion.

And finally, we have this pic showing the RangerKey options for the Go-KaiGalleon Buster. As you can see, they have seven RangerKeys in place, which includes the team and an extra black key. If you look at the on in the picture though, you can see that it’s just the GoseiBlack Key, not a seventh Go-Kaiger. While it’s still a possibility at this point, there still hasn’t been any word on one, so if they have one, it’ll be a while before we hear anything about it.

2012 Sentai ACTUALLY CONFIRMED: It’s for real this time!

Hey, just came out within the last 20 minutes, dukemon22 has found actual copyrights for the next Super Sentai series! And it looks like the official title for the 36th Super Sentai series will be (drumroll please): “Tokumei Sentai Gobuster“! That translates to “Special Mission Taskforce Gobusters”.

Here’s a copy of the copyright claim:

I know, I had to srink it down so that it would fit on the page, but I can guarantee you that it’s real.

And if any of the rumors that have been floating around are any indication as to what the series will be about, then think something along these lines:

With all the rumors of ghosts and yokai and such being major themes in the series, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch of the imagination to think that Gobuster was a play on Ghostbusters. No one can verify that at this time, but at least we have a name. And since the copyrights have come so late this year, it could be a sign that Go-Kaiger will last longer than 50 episodes, so even if you’re not excited by this, at least you can be excited for more Go-Kaiger.

What do you think, Egon?

Go-Kaiger Dairanger Tribute Episode: Five-Star Pirates!

Looks like we’ve got some new info on the upcoming Dairanger tribute episode (Ep.33), and it looks like Gai’s back in the spotlight. Here’s the summary:

Episode 33: Hero daaaaa!!!! – 10/09
While at the super market, Luka and Gai meet the monster Bacula who is eating everything. Gai’s GokaiCellular ends up being eaten as well. Feeling down about what happened Gai is confronted by a single man…

Spoiler Alert! That mysterious person will be one of the Dairangers. 😛

The real question is, which one will it be? Will it be Tenkasei Ryo, a.k.a. Ryu Ranger? Or will it be another Dairanger?

And it also looks like this is going to be an episode with a lot of out-of-suit action, which is rarely seen anymore nowadays. Should be exciting!

Seven Legendary Riders in Movie War MEGAMAX: Showa Rider KITAAAAA!!!!

Yesterday, we got news of two brand new Riders that will appear in Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider Fourze & OOO Movie Wars MEGAMAX. Today, we have news of a few old Riders appearing in the movie, as well as more info on Nadeshiko and Poseidon.

While the focus of the story will be on Fourze and OOO, it has been confirmed that seven Rider from the past will also be appearing in the movie. Namely, the Seven Legendary Kamen Riders Ichigo, Nigo, V3, Riderman, X, Amazon, and Stronger. No word on where they’ll appear in the movie or what role they’ll play in the story.

For Fourze’s part of the movie, the plot will mainly surround a love story between Gentaro and Misaki Nadeshiko, a hish chool girl whose able to transform into Kamen Rider Nadeshiko. She want to fight alongside Fourze, but who exactly is she?…

For OOO’s part, they encounter a mysterious young man named Miharu, who is able to transform into Kamen Rider Poseidon. Like OOO, Poseidon uses three Core Medals, the Shark, Whale, and Wolffish Medals. And from the look of this scan, I’d say that he’s OOO first evil Rider.

Well, at the very least, we’re looking at a movie with the total of 13 Riders (minimum), with what will probably be a very big ending. And yet, no one outside of Japan will be able to see it until next year. Nothing worse that delayed awesomeness.

UPDATE: We have a a bit more detailed background on the two parts of the movie, as well as on the two new Riders.

Fourze’s part of the movie will be the story of Gentaro’s first love. And who is this lady that managed to steal his heart? Why it’s Misaki Nadeshiko, a.k.a. Kamen Rider Nadeshiko. The main focus of the story will be on Nadeshiko’s identity, and on what happens with Gentaro’s first love (some people just went “Aww”, other just said “bleh”).

More detailed images of the suit show the changes that went in to stylize the suit for a more female appearance. The suit has a sailor-style collar connected to solar ribbons, a belt similar to the FourzeDriver, but it only has the two arm slots (so far for Rocket and Radar Switches), they seem to have swapped out the orange in the Fourze outfit for blue, and it’s rather form-fitting, which is an entirely different discussion. And her version of the FourzeDriver doesn’t seem to have the big lever on the side, so how will she henshin or perform a Limit Break? Hopefully, it won’t be some “magigirl”-style transformation, otherwise I’ll have to have a few words with Koichi-san.

And for the OOO part, the story seems to center around the arrival of this new Rider, Kamen Rider Poseidon. A mysterious young man named Miharu changes into Poseidon and challenges Eiji to a duel. Since Eiji has no way of transforming, since all of the original Core Medals were destroyed, Date steps in as Proto-Birth to fight him, but then the picture above happens…

Poseidon is very similarly modelled after OOO, he has a modified version of the OOODriver with three aquatic-themed Core Medals, his head, torso and legs matching the corresponding colors, and with the designs from the Medals on his chest. The designs on the Core Medals are of a Shark, Whale, and Bering Wolffish. This is solely my opinion, but he does remind me in many ways of a Maori warrior, between the theme of the Medals, the look of the designs on the Medals, and the odd-looking staff.

But his appearance begs many questions. How does he have these unique Core Medals? How does he have ANY Core Medals? And how will Eiji be able to defeat him if he can’t become OOO?

Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal to Premiere on CW 4Kids Toonzai October 15th: Wait, 4Kids still has rights to it?

4Kids Entertainment recently announced via Facebook and YouTube that Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, the latest iteration of the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, will premiere on their CW 4Kids Toonzai block.

The new series revolves around the story of 13-year-old Yuma Tukumo, an amateur duelist, and Astral, a mysterious life form from a parallel world that suddenly appears before Yuma. The series originally debutted in Japan back in April, with the manga launching back in February.

Here’s the new teaser promo that 4Kids has posted:

4Kids has been in recent legal battles with the series licensers, ADK and TV Tokyo, which nearly led to the two licencing companies to cut ties with 4Kids and sell licenses to new distributors. To sum up the events to this point, 4Kids filed legal actions against the two companies to keep them from selling to someone else, until their own separate legal troubles were resolved (for a more complete story, click here).

Well then, I guess this news begs the question: how do you feel about Zexal making it’s way into the world? Are you excited by this? Could you care less? And how do you feel about 4Kids handling it? Are you happy about it, or would you prefer another company dealing with fewer legal troubles to distribute it? I’ll admit, I haven’t really followed the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise in a while, I might just have to see if this series is worth it’s muster.

Kamen Rider Fourze Scans: New States, New Switches, and New Riders!

New scans time, which means a new look at what’s coming down the road. And for Fourze, that means the in-show reveal of his Elek State, a look at some new Astro Switches, and some very interesting Movie Wars MEGAMAX news. So let’s get this post in the air!

First, we have a massive pile of scans for Fourze’s Elek state, but no big reveals about it. You can look over them anyway:

Oh, so that’s how he changes into his Elek State. Mystery solved. 😛

And with that, we can move onto the new Switches!

These are all Switches set to be revealed in October. From No.11-16, we have:

  • Astro Switch 11 – Scissors
  • Astro Switch 12 – Beat
  • Astro Switch 13 – Chain Arrays
  • Astro Switch 14 – Smoke
  • Astro Switch 15 – Spike
  • Astro Switch 16 – Winch

Here’s the new switches in action:

And next, we have a shaded pic of Fourze’s Fire State, which uses an unkown red Switch, and is equiped with the Hi-Hack Gun Module.

Now that we’ve covered that, let’s deviate slightly for bit and talk about this scan:

Yep, looks like JK got into the KRC too, but Kengo seems to be very upset about it.

And finally, we have scnas featuring two new Riders for the Movie Wars MEGAMAX!

On the left we have Kamen Rider Nadeshiko, who will be in the Fourze part of the movie, and on the left we have Kamen Rider Poseidon, who will appear in the OOO part of the movie. Not much has been revealed about Poseidon, other than the alternate version of the OOODriver he wears, and his unique Core Medals which feature sea creatures (no confirmed identities of the Core Medals themselves). However, we have learned quite a bit about Nadeshiko.

Nadeshiko is a high school student that wants to work with Fourze. And she becomes a romantic interest for Gentaro, who will apparently fall in love with her. I guess they’re covering the “teen romance” base with this character. No word on whether or not she’ll appear in the series. And as you can see, she sports a more retro-looking spacesuit outift, with a blue version of the FourzeDriver that only has two slots for the arms.

This scan also confirms the rumors that the Fourze part of the movie will take place during the Amanogawa Sky High Festival.

Well, that’s all for Fourze news, if anything else pops up, I’ll be sure to let you know.
