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!

Go-Kaiger Scans and Episode Summaries: Rise of the Dragon Slayer?

Yay! More new scans! This time, we have scans from upcoming episodes of Go-Kaiger, as well as some new episode summaries, and it looks like we’re going into two characters’ backstories. Meet the Princess and the Dragon Slayer!

Next week’s episode of Go-Kaiger, Ep.41, “Something I Don’t Want to Lose”,  Emperor Ackdos Gil enters the battlefield, setting after the Go-Kaigers for the death of his son. And along with him are two of his guards (seen above), Imperial Guards Dyrando ans Zatslig. After imprisoning Damaras for not protecting the Prince in battle, Zatslig, with a reputation for destroying whole worlds, goes on the attack. And Ahim is the one that goes after him, because Zatslig is the one who destroyed her home world of Famille and killed her parents, the King and Queen shown in the first scan, and saying that she has a grudge against him would be an understatement. We’ll also learn how she met Marvelous and why she became a Pirate.

And this scan come from the episode after, Ep.42, “The Strongest Man in Space”. In it, Ahim uncovers reports that would suggest that Don Dogoier/Hakase may have been a legendary warrior, known for slaying many dragons on many worlds. But Don has no memories of doing any of it. So, is he a great Dragon Slayer, or was he just an intergalatic cosplayer?

And this final scan reveals that the RangerKey toy line will continue into next year (2012), and that there will be a new toy to use with them. No word yet on which teams or senshi the new RangerKeys will be based on.

And that should be it for Go-Kaiger series stuff. Hopefully, we’ll get a glimpse of that new toy sometime soon.

Question for you: Any ideas on what the new RangerKey toy will be?

Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan Leaked Images: What kind of jail is this?

Check out the newest leaked scans from the Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan movie. This one, leaked earlier today, shows scenes of a space prison full of former Sentai Villains!

According to these scans, and a couple of rumors, the prisoner list includes: Shizuka of the Wind (Boukenger), the three Pollution Ministers — Kegaleshia, Kitaneidas and Yogostein (Go-onger), Yatsudenwani (Abaranger), Gekkou (Boukenger), Bae (Gekiranger), and Jealoushitto (Gokaiger).  And notice that the three Ministers all have white cloths on their head, indicating that they’re ghosts. And they aren’t the only ghosts, because supposedly Walz Gil is also suppose to be locked up with Jealoushitto. One guy supposedly came across them filming a scene where Jealoushitto and Walz Gil were in a fist fight, and the Gobusters showed up to hunt down the ghostly Prince.

This is quite the shock to see, because everyone in there either reformed or changed sides, so why have they been locked up? Well, it turns out that the prison is in Makuu Space, and that Gavan was tricked into locking them up with the Go-Kaigers by movie villain Makuu Prison Chief Ashrada! (pictured in the scans below) Will Gavan be able to see through the deception in time to correct his mistake? Apparently not, at least that’s what the scans below show:

I must see this henshin sequence, NOW!

Suddenly, the line-up is much shinier!

Andm on top of Gavan appearance, we get to see BattleKenya and DenjiBlue fighting alongside. Nothing quite like teaming up with yourself AND yourself. 😛

And we do have a little more info on Gavan Bootleg. It’s a robot warrior created from the combined technologies of the Space Police and the Zangyack, who can mimic all of Gavan’s abilities, and can drag people into Makuu Space.

Of course, no robotic copy could ever replace the original. 😉

And this is Makuu Prison Chief Ashrada, who tricked Gavan into arresting the Go-Kaigers, and who inherited the blood of the fallen space mafia Makuu leader Don Horror. In the movie, he activates his own blood in order to expand Makuu space and conquer the Earth by engulfing it!

And here, we see Gavan after he’s captured Marvelous, working on what he thinks are orders from the Space Police Chief Uibaru, only to realize afterwards that Uibaru is really Ashrada! But when he tries to free the Go-Kaigers, he gets captured and locked up by Gavan Bootleg!! How will they all get free and stop Ashrada before he engulfs the Earth in Makuu space?

Expect epic fight sequences and action from Gavan.

Here, we se Retsuo Ichijoji after he’s rescued a young Marvelous. A small heart-warming scene, I’m sure.

Here, we see Retsuo trapped in Makuu prison by the bootlegged robot. Will Marvelous and the crew be abel to free him, and themselves, in time to stop Ashrada’s plans?!

And it looks like Elder, the older of the Sneak Brothers that was batted out into some distant horizon, has returned for revenge! And he brought along his younger sister, Sister! And it looks like they’re trying to tangle with BattleKenya, which might be a big mistake.

Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Vs. Uchu Keiji Gavan premieres January 21st, 2012.

Gobuster First Leaked Image?: Costume Designs can be tricky, but this one seems alright.

Well, the first supposed leaked image from the next Super Sentai series, Tokumei Sentai Gobuster, is out now, and it depicts what may be the official costume design for the new team.

Going over the design, it is an interesting one, to say the least. It seems to be partly based on the Boukenger costume, at least around the limbs. Not sure how I feel about the big yellow hexagon on his chest though. However, I do like that their trying to bring back the tech helmet look, since it really hasn’t been seen since Timeranger. At this point, they’re still probably working out the details with the design, but overall I like it.

And there is a strong possibility that this could be related to the final design, especially considering that last year around this time a possible costume design for Go-Kaiger was leaked that was very similar to the final design. So you never know. Keep in mind though that this could very easily be a fake, or at least an alternate design they decided not to go with.

I can say this though; it does fit the bounty hunter/Metal Hero rumors that have been floating around. Not sure where the yokai would fit into all this though. I can see them working together with Gavan and Sharivan very easily.

Kamen Riders Birth and Proto-Birth confirmed for Climax Heroes Fourze: Re:Re:Birth

This leaked magazine scan has revealed quite a lot about the upcoming game Kamen Rider Climax Heroes Fourze, mainly dealing with OOO, Birth, and a little more about Fourze.

According to the scans, OOO will have all of his major Combos, including the movie-exclusive BuraKaWani, as well as having a medal swap system in place, giving him 127 possible Medal combinations. Both Kamen Rider Birth and Proto-Birth will be featured in the game. And it looks like Fourze will be able to use the #5 Magic Hands Switch in the game. No news on any other Switches or Modules that have made it into the game.

Well, with all of this so far revealed, I wonder what other secrets will come out before the game’s release this December?
