More Power Rangers Samurai Stuff: Parades, Floats, and the greatest Panel EVER.

Hey, don’t be fooled by shiny specials, this week has practically been dedicated to all things Power Rangers. As proof, we have video of the Power Rangers Samurai in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, along with a few photos, a new design for a Tournament of Roses Parade float, and video from the Tsuyoshi Nonaka Panel at the Pacific Media Expo (PMX) talking about the desings for the Mega Mode figures. Let’s get this Samurai celebration started!

First, for those of you who didn’t catch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this year, here’s the Power Rangers Samurai’s official appearance in the parade:

And here’s a small gallery for you:

Who doesn’t like a little Ranger live-action show? And the little affair is fine, but it could have been really jazzed up with a float like this:

Yes, this float will be created and submitted to the 123rd Annual Tournament Of Roses Parade by Namco Bandai, and will feature all six Rangers standing amongst their zords and the Samurai Megazord, the float itself being made with precisely arranged flowers and organic materials. Just a little over-the-top promotion for the Wii game.

And finally, we have a video from the PMX featuring the Tsuyoshi Nonaka Panel, and during this panel they reveal some secrets behind the design of the Mega Mode figures, including:

  • That the “Battilized” Ranger figure would appear in the show
  • That the ninja/wrestler-style masks were originally included in the design because they had no idea who would be on the final cast, and Saban just decided to incorporate the masks into the toys
  • That the Mega Mode was partly inspired by the suit designs from the MMPR Movie
  • And that they usually use these kinds of designs mainly with Kamen Rider

Check out the panel video here (for the stuff about the PRS Mega Mode, skip ahead to about 8:47):

And that should be everything Power Rangers-related for now. If anything else pops up, I’ll let you know!

New Gobuster Rumors: Trust No One. Seriously, there’s no consitency with these rumors anymore..

Well, there’s been a number rumors about the future Sentai series Gobuster that have popped up over the last day or so, and I would have reported on them sooner, but I got swept up in the Power Ranger Morphenomenon Jungle Fury Marathon that’s still running on Nicktoons. Ignoring that, there is one thing I can say for certain about the rumors, and that is that I have no certainty about what the story is suppose to be anymore. There’s been one rumor after the next, and they all seem to contradict one another (for example, there’s one that was posted on JEFusion that says their suppose to be University students, but since it was proven false I’m not going to mention any of it). So for now, I’m just going to post rumors from solid, semi-reliable sources, which leads us to this batch of rumors from Dukemon22. It would seem to somewhat solidify the spy theme rumor that came out yesterday, and the general connection to Metal Heroes that’s been persisting since before the series name was even confirmed.

Here’s the current set of rumors, according to dukemon22:

  • Red’s motif/partner is a Cheetah. It can transform into a motorcycle.
  • Blue’s motif/partner is a Gorilla. Main ability comes from raw strength.
  • Yellow’s motif/partner is a Rabbit. Master of technology that can hack into any computer system.
  • The forehead of the helmet has the face of the animal. The eyes of the helmet are sunglasses, similar to GokaiSilver in color.
  • They look a little like Metal Heroes.
  • There are Partner Robots. Cheetah and Gorilla are person sized, and will be of the rubber-suit variety while Rabbit will be Bomper-esque in size.

And yes, they will supposedly act as the Sentai mechs and combine together to form the main robo.

Why Robotack you ask? Because that’s probably the closest to what they’re describing. Hopefully, they’ll look a little better than that.

Also rumored was their henshin devices and weapons: For the henshin device, supposedly they will be using sunglass to henshin. The sunglasses will pop out from their wrist bands/watches. And since they’ll be spies, their main wepins will by spying equipment (cameras, smart phones, etc.).

And that’s all of it, for now anyway. Hopefully, we’ll start seeing more of a consistency with these rumors.

BTW, how awesome is that Battle Fever fanart?!

Kamen Rider OOO TaMaShii Combo “Let’s Go Kamen Rider” Movie Appearance

One of the most anticipated scenes from the movie OOO Den-O All Rider: Let’s Go Kamen Rider was the debut (so to speak) of the OOO TaMaShii combo. And for anyone who hasn’t scene the movie yet (which you can click here to see), we have the clip from that scene in the movie! So check it out, and feel the Rider Spirit!:

Okay, so it was only about a minute and a half of the actual TaMaShii combo footage, but that was an awesome minute and a half!

And that’s followed by an even cooler scene at the end, so be sure to click that link above to see the whole movie!

Go-Kaiger Rumors: Mid 80’s Nostalgia!

Yep, the latest episode rumors are out, and this time they focus on three extremely popular teams from the ancient times we refer to as the “80’s”.

According to the rumor, ChangeDragon, YellowFlash, and RedMask will all appear in episode 32 to give Go-Kaiger their Grand Powers. It’s not certain whether the actors themselves will make an appearance or not. And it looks like the Go-KaiGalleon Buster will utilize the Grand Powers of Changeman, Flashman, Maskman, and Ohranger.

If the rumor is true, it would confirm a previous rumor about the return of Kaizu Ryousuke (Takeru/RedMask) to acting via Go-Kaiger, and possibly one about Basco having three Grand Powers from these teams. We’ll just have to wait and see.
