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.

Gobuster 2012 Rumors: Who you gonna call?

So as you can imagine, rumors have been flying around ever since it was determined that Tokumei Sentai Gobuster was going to be the official title for the next series. Well, we now have a number of rumors from a reliable source, and we’re definitely starting to get a good idea of how the series could play out. Here’s what been rumored so far:

  • The team is composed of red, blue, and yellow
  • The Gobusters will first appear in Gokaiger VS Gavan. They seem to be linked to the 30th anniversary of Metal Hero series.
  • Though the team starts at 3, the Gobusters have Partners. The original post relates this to Den-o, so it would be my guess the partners are partner spirits or youkai.
  • The henshin device, at this point in time, is rumored to be a smart  phone type. The device may actually have an interactive panel display,  but to what ends is unknown, but it sounds cool none the less.
  • Potential Color Scheme #1: There is a lot of speculation that the color scheme will be  Jetman-esque. With Red, Yellow, Black being male, Blue and White being  female.
  • Potential Color Scheme #2: There is speculation that the team will be colored  according to the olympic colors, like Go-onger and Liveman were (Red, Blue, Yellow, Black, Green)

So then, a three-man team with some kind of partners (possibly spirits/yokai) with smart phone henshin devices and a possible connection to the Metal Heroes. Wonder how that will work?

Keep in mind that these are rumors, and even though the source is reliable, these could turn out to be false. We still have a couple of months before any official announcement, so we’ll just have to wait to see what’s what.
