Tokumei Sentai Gobuster REVEALED!: Talk about a power you’ve never seen before. [Updated Three times]

They’re finally here! Here’s the first official images of the 36th Super Sentai Series Tokumei Sentai Gobuster!:

Here they are! From right to left, that’s YellowBuster and robot partner Usada Letas, RedBuster with Chida Nikku, and BlueBuster with Gorisaki Banana, and of course Gobuster-Oh in the background.

And this is their main henshin device, the (and I kid you not) Morphin’ Brace (sincerest apologies to the Mission Paneler for not making the cut). Apparently, it pops out the shades that the Gobusters where on their helmets. And from the looks of it, it come with interchangable disks for each Gobuster (think the Shinobi Medals from Hurricanger). And then there’s the thing on the bottom of the page, but I don’t know what it is, so let’s move on!

And here are two of their side-arms, the IchiganBuster, a camera that changes into a gun/blaster, and the SouganBlade, a sword that changes into a pair of binoculars. And from the looks of it, it seem that they do combine together to form one more powerful weapon.

And this is RedBuster’s mech, CB-01 Gobuster Ace. Looks like Chida Niku first turns into the head of the mech (GoseiKnight anyone?), and then attaches itself to the car shown above, then changes into a cheetah, and then changes into a single robot that can combine with the other two. A little complicated, but okay.

And the other two, Gorisaki Banana and Usada Letas combine with a BlueBuster’s truck GT-02 and YellowBuster’s helicopter RH-03, respectively, to form the auxillary gorilla and rabbit mechs. And when they all combine…

…You get Gobuster-Oh! Looks like a cross between SirenBuilder and Engine-Oh. (What is it time for? I can’t see, there’s a giant robot in the way.)

Anyway, today’s news isn’t entirely about Gobuster, because this was included with the leaked scans:

Whoa, that’s bigger than the others. It’s the new Legend Mobirate, apparently with 68 new sounds, a new gold-lined paint job, a Super Sentai databease, and a new AkaRed RangerKey! And it will be cheaper than the standard Mobirate!! And it looks like they’ll be releaseing three new RangerKey sets, which include full-team SunVulcan, Gaoranger, and of course Gobuster. Set for release in March.

My thoughts: On first impression, it looks good. At first, I was somewhat shocked by the new suit designs, mostly because they look like an outfit you’d where backpacking, but it works. I’d do like the new colored-shades look, and the helmet design is clean and simple. While I’ll admit that I had been looking forward to the Mission Paneler, I do like the pop-out shades gimmick of the Morhpin’ Brace (Saban, if you ever get to this series, please, for your sake and mine, keep that name!). From the look of that, and their equipment, it looks like the spy theme rumors might be true. And I guess with the new mechs that they wanted to retry the “Headder” concept from Goseiger, but it’s a nice looking Sentai mech. Th only thing I’m no sure of is their team logo. It’s a pair of shades over an ellipse that makes it look like a big “G”, and has the letters “BG” on the shades. It’s just a little too reminiscent of the Go-Onger logo for my tastes.

And of course, this post is full of good news, because along with this new preview and the new Mobirate news, it looks like the premiere date for the series is February 26th, which would put the official number of episode of Go-Kaiger at the rumored number of 52! Yay rumor confirmations!

If I find out any more, you can bet I’ll let you know!
