First the logo and released pics:
As you can see, the uniforms are very different from the original concept art.
And here is some info from dukemon:
The work is surrounded by a samba rhythm, making it a fun and bright experience! Theme of the show is “Charging” (Juuden, i.e. Jyuden, Beast Electricity). Using the JyuDenChi, in which Dinosaur Souls are stored, the Kyouryugers charge various pieces of their arsenal.
-Henshin Item is the “GaburiVolver” (Gaburi- to bite). The JyuDenChi is set in the “Gaburinchou” and henshin is carried out with a Samba Sound.
-Red, Black, Blue, Green and Pink require the help of Dinosaur partners, similar to Aba. Their names are GabuTyra (Tyrannosaurus), Parasagan (Parasaur), Stegocchi (Stegosaurus), Zactor (possibly a Velociraptor), and Torikera (Triceratops.)
-GabuTyra, Stegocchi, and Torikera can gattai into the “KyouryuuJin”. Parasagan and Zactor act as replacement parts for the bot. The toy has speech gimmicks, and it can recognize all the batteries. It resembles AbarenOh a tad, and its’ voice actor is Chiba Shigeru, who’s appeared in way too many shows to list here
So as you can see, still trying to be different and experimental like they were with Go-Busters, only with a much lighter feel. For a closer look at the new dinosaur partner mechs, check out these new toy pics from Big Bad Toy Store:
Here’s the official robo KyoRyuJin, which is a combination of GabuTyra, Stegocchi, and Torikera. Pretty similar to AbarenOh and MagiKing, with the other mechs acting as secondary attachments similar to Engine Birca and Gunpherd with EngineOh.
Here’s Dinosaur Zactor (and a partial of one of the JyuDenChis (which contain the Dino Souls and act as “batteries” for the Dinosaurs and the Kyoryuger’s equipment).
And this is Parasagan (sorry, it’s hard to tell what any of these things are without translations).
And this appears to be one of the first new additional Dinos, which the website lists as Stegochi, but looks like it might be one based off of an Anklyosaurus.
And this last one features the new DinoChaser and an illustrated KyoryuRed figure. As you can see, they start out as two separate Raptor-type dinos that combine to make the bike. As you can see in all of these scans, each major set seems to come with a JyuDenChi, and if you look closely at this last one, you can see the future sidearms that the Kyoryugers will use, namely the GaburiVolver and the Samba Sword.
Overall, this is show is suppose to be bright and up-beat with a Latin rhythm, somewhat purposely designed to counteract what Bandai has called the “dark” nature of Go-Busters (which they also hope will counteract the low sales of Go-Busters merchandise). Now we don’t know anything else that has been 100% confirmed, so I’m going to hold off on any real judgment about the series until more info comes out, but so far it doesn’t seem bad (to me, other people, ehh… they’ve already decided it’s going to be terrible). Personally, I was hoping to see some of influence from these Zyuranger Redesigns in the Kyoryuger‘s design, but it’s still not bad.

UPDATE: (12/8/12) More catalogue scans have come out, giving us a better look at their main robo KyoryuJin, and a look at their sidearms and henshin device. Check those pics out below:
First, a better look at the Dinos and KyoryuJin. As you can see, the JyuDenChi is used to “power” special effects in the Dinosaurs, or as they’re known here, the JyuDenRyu, and they each play different sound effects when combining together. Kamitsuki Gattai! Also, the first extra JyuDenRyu, Ankydon (the light blue one that looks like Steguchi) is also shown here.
And here we have a better look at the GaburiCaliber, in sword form and combined with the GaburiVolver to form the DX GaburiCannon. They will sell both parts separately AND in a DX combined set that comes with three JyuDenChis. The JyuDenChi exclusive to the GaburiCaliber is #15 Allomeras (note that the shape of the GaburiCaliber is similar to the Allosaurus).
And here we have a better look at the GaburiVolver, which makes this the first gun-based henshin device for a Sentai series (excluding, of course, any that change into guns, or the Akibaranger‘s MM-01). It comes with two JyuDenChis, #1 GabuTyra and #14 Stymero (Styracosaurus- no word on any future mechs for it). As you can see, to start the henshin functions, you place the JyuDenChi your going to use for the henshin in the bottom “barrel”, close the “mouth”, spin the chamber and whammo!, you’re a Kyoryuger! And as a finisher, there’s a second barrel for combined power attacks. But from what I can tell, there’s only sound effect for Red, Blue, and Pink, which makes me think that Green and Black will come in later in the series with their own version henshin device.
And here we have an overview of the Kyoryugers with their sidearms and their henshin device. And here’s the basic idea we have of the series thusfar: We’ve got five dino-themed rangers fighting and changing to a Samba beat, whose main henshin device is a revolver (the call phrase, by the way, is “Kyoryu Change!”), whose main gimmick are batteries that run on electric dinosaur souls, whose team make-up is the first truly unique line-up we’ve seen in a while (before Sixth or Extra rangers), and whose outfits seem to look like horribly mutated Zyuranger costumes. A better look at the whole team here:
There still haven’t been any more confirmations about the plot, or any future cast, but given the fact that the first official image has come so late in the year, that shouldn’t be such a surprise.
Juuden Sentai Kyoryuger premieres February 17, 2013.
UPDATE: (12/9/12) Even more Catalogue Pics have surfaced, including some better quality ones for the JyuDenRyu. Let’s Check them out!
Here’s a close-up of the belt, which acts as a phone and a carrying case for JyuDenChis, and it looks like it comes with JyuDenChi #14 (no idea). It also shows a new sword weapon (possibly the Samba Sword) and an inflatable punching bag toy.
And here’s another view of the DinoChaser, along with vinyl figures of the Kyoryugers and a mini GabuTyra.
And here we have future relese sets for JyuDenChis, namely #17-22, along with some merchandise advertising (yes, they’re updating Dice-OH! again). And it looks like they included a calendar of release dates starting in January and going through April. And now for a better look at the JyuDenRyu:
And that’s it for now, any more I’m just putting in a new post.
