Power Rangers Ultrapost: Samurai are Super!

Hey, there’s been a lot of Power Ranger news that’s come out over the last month, and for some reason I keep missing it! So, I’m just going to take some of the biggest headlines from the past month or so and thow them all into one Gigantor post! And coming up first we have this new poster for the the new season of PRS, Power Rangers Super Samurai!:

Yep, next season, the “Super” mode will be officially incorporated into the series, including this new Super Mega Mode. And if I’m not mistaken, I can see a new enemy in the corner. No info yet on when the next season will start.

And this poster actually came from the Power Morphicon Facebook page, who also announced the official date for Power Morphicon 2012! This year, it will take place from August 17th-19th 2012 at the Pasadena Convention Center (same location as the last), and Registration is open for anyone interested.

Speaking of Pasadena, anyone who saw this year’s Tournament of Roses Parade (and not on ABC)¬†might have caught a glimpse of the Power Rangers Samurai Video Game float. If not, you can check out this video from the HGTV coverage of the parade:

And here’s a nice gallery of pics:

And here’s a couple of behind-the-scenes videos, one of which includes Andre from BlackNerdComedy:

Now this next part, I don’t have a decent segway for, but it was still awesome.

Yep, this happened, for 48 hours on Nicktoons back on the 6th (January 2012), and I’m assuming it was awesome since I couldn’t watch it because we had downgrade our cable package literally the week of. My life sucks sometimes…

BTW they have been playing that on there regularly as well, so go check it out if you can! Because I can’t. ūüė¶

Now let’s move onto some newer news thst came out while I was working on this ultra-post!

Mainly, Kimberly Crossman has been 100% CONFIRMED to play a future Red Ranger Role! YAY!! This confirmation via a recent video post on Carlos Pena’s YouTube Channel¬†(Carlos Pena¬†from¬†Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush)¬†where she comes on and outright says it, though she does keep us in the dark about the details. You can check out the whole video below (though I can’t guarantee you’ll be that impressed):

So yeah, there’s that. And then there’s this:

Yep, this is the cover of the latest issue of Hyper Hobby Magazine, which your going to see a lot of as I do more of these ultra-posts, and the portion of it that I want to cover here is this: while full translations of this are STILL not available, we can confirm that Toei did discuss the 20th Anniversary of Power Rangers, and those discussions included possibly re-shooting the¬†Legend War scene from the opening of Go-Kaiger with teams from MMPR onward. Whether the 20th season of Power Rangers will be the Go-Kaiger adaption is anyone’s guess.¬†But that’s still big news, though I wouldn’t expect any adaptions of the movies to be quite as spectacular as the Go-Kaiger movies have been so far.

And that should be about everything, barring nothing comes out in the next five minutes. If anything else pops up, I make no guarantees, but I’ll try to let you know.

OOO WONDERFUL and Go-Kaiger Flying Ghost Ship movies release date confirmed!

Two months ago, Toei premiered two back-to-back movies that became box office juggernauts within their first weekend. The two movies, Kamen Rider OOO THE MOVIE: WONDEFUL, Shogun, and 21 Core Medals and Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger THE MOVIE: The Flying Ghost Ship, now have a confirmed Blu-Ray and DVD release date!

Yes, both movies will be released next year in both standard and collector’s box set editions, with the OOO WONDERFUL movie being released on January 21st, and the Go-Kaiger movie being released on February 21st. Don’t ask me why they’re being released a month apart from each other, the only guess I can come up with is that the Go-Kaiger movie release date puts it closer to the series finale.

Anyway. more details on this as they come out.

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?

Kamen Rider OOO PuToTyra Combo confirmed for Climax Heroes Fourze: Isn’t that character a bit of a dinosaur at this point? :P (I joke)

Will we ever run out of OOO fanart? Probably not.

It’s been confirmed through the Japanese edition of Playstation Magazine that the OOO PuToTyra combo will appear in the upcoming PSP¬†game Kamen Rider Climax Heroes Fourze.

In the previous game Climax Heroes OOO, Kamen Rider OOO could only use his first three combos (excluding TaToBa, which is his primary combo), from GataKiriBa to SaGoZo. But with this new expansion to the game, OOO will have all of his in-show Combos, which also includes TaJaDoru and ShaUTa. For a look at the issue of Playstation Magazine this story came from, check out the video below:

It’s very informative, if you speak Japanese.

Kamen Rider Climax Heroes Fourze will be released for PSP and Nintendo Wii this Winter. Price is still TBA.

Kamen Rider Fourze Confirmed Episode Summaries!

How’s that for awesome fanart?

Next month is the start of Kamen Rider Fourze, and after months of speculation and rumors, we’re finally starting to get an idea of what the series will be like, and now we have confirmed episode summaries from the first two episodes of Kamen Rider Fourze, courtesy of Otona Fami (from Freesia of HJU):

Episode 1, Blue – Spring – Strange – Body. The episode title pattern seems to be consisting of 4 kanji characters written separately. Together, they do form a sentence. In this case, “Youth Transformation”

Gentaro is transferred into a new school and is put in Yuuki and Kengo’s class. The first thing he says is to become friends with everyone.

While the leader of the American Football club is suddenly attacked by the Orion Zodiart. Kengo, who is too weak to fight, decides to make a gamble and gives Gentaro the Fourze Driver along with some Astro Switches.

Episode 2, Eaves – Space – Upper – Class. Put it together and you get, “Space, First Class”

While fighting the Orion Zodiart, Gentaro tries to come up with various strategies to fight with. He finds out that he has to turn off the Zodiart Switch to defeat a Zodiart. Later, Gentaro is taken to outer space through the magical locker, Rabbit Hatch. Gentaro decides to protect his school and creates the Kamen Rider Club.

Not¬†a bad entrance for¬†a new Rider, can’t wait to see for myself!
