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.

Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan & Gobuster Rumors:

A new set of rumors involving the Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan movie and the next Sentai series Gobuster recently popped up, and they seem to point to a completely different story than what’s been previously rumored. So let’s get started!

First up, here’s the latest rumor involving the plot of Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan, and it looks like we may be dealing with a sticky situation:

Zangyack controls the Space Police and Gavan arrests the Gokaiger for being pirates. The mysterious Gavan Bootleg shows up, arresting Gavan.

For those of you who haven’t heard about the Gavan Bootleg, here’s a picture:

Current rumors point say that Gavan Bootleg will be one of the main villains of the movie.

And that’s what’s come out for the movie. Not much, but there you go.

Don’t worry though, because there’s a lot more rumors for Gobuster, and it looks like the show might take a different turn from what’s been presented so far:

  • The Gobusters will start with Red (Male), Blue (Male) and Yellow (Female) it will move to 5. Additional members will be Black (Male) and Pink (Female). Red is rumored to be played Acaba Mio (Gokusen).
  • A cheetah mecha was mentioned. Animal motifs, at least for the mecha, seem likely.
  • The series is rumored to be a spy theme.

Well, that’s a different direction to say the least. If the rumors are true, then they are already the best spys ever, because they had us all totally convinced that they were bounty hunters. 😛

Anyway, that’s it for Super Sentai-related news. If anything else pops up, I’ll let you know!

Video Game Rangers?: Mock Power Rangers Teaser Trailer.

So, one of the biggest problems many of us see with adapting Goseiger for Power Rangers is figuring out how to get past, or at least get around, the angel theme. Well, I certainly know one person whose found a very creative way of getting around it, and they even made a short fan trailer! Check it out below:

Well, how do you like that? Would be a great way to get through to the current youth (wow, that sounded like something an old person would write). The only real flaw with this theme that I can see is that the whole “videogame world” thing is a little overplayed. But it could possibly work.

Of course, this is only a fan teaser, and it was made over a month ago, so it doesn’t include any new info that’s come out since. All indications currently point to a sort-of MMPR reboot, with the Rangers going back to school. And unless something else comes out, the official name so far for the next series will be Power Rangers MegaForce, so who knows what the theme will be then. This could turn out to be close to the real theme. 😉

New Gobuster Rumors: Tokumei Sentai Gobuster members are bounty hunters?

Hey, so new rumors about the next Sentai series Tokumei Sentai Gobuster popped up last night, and it seems that the real theme of the show could be bounty hunters. According to the latest rumors, the team will start off with three members, (as been the recent tradition with series following anniversary series), Shoki Ryo a.k.a CrimeBuster (Red), Aizawa Aberu a.k.a. OniBuster (Yellow), and Nami a.k.a. AlienBuster (Blue). If true, this would be the first time since Dairanger that their team designations wouldn’t involve their individual color.

Also “revealed” is the name of their primary enemy, Rogue Gallery, which would make sense with the bounty-hunting theme, and their leader’s name is Percy Rifuro or Percy Lefuro. Not very intimidating, but keep in mind these are rumors, so who knows what of this is true, if any of it.

And I would like to address something now that I’ve seen in other peoples comments on these “bounty hunter theme” rumors: just because they might be bounty hunters, it does not mean that this will neccessarily be another anti-hero team like Go-Kaiger (which even calling them anti-heroic wouldn’t be accurate). They could be very heroic, with any bounty collected being more of a side reward for bringing in a villain. The idea that the bounty hunter theme automatically means that their primary motivation for fighting is money is a bit far from reality. Most people in real life who become bounty hunters are usually looking for a chance to bring in wanted criminals and do good. So let’s not pass judgement on this newly revealed team until more info comes out.

New 2012 Sentai Rumor: Darn, my money was on “Cowboy” theme.

Well, it looks like we may have gotten a really substantial rumor from a very reliable source. Though I’m a little unsure about the theme. Anyway, dukemon22 has just posted a new rumored Sentai title for 2012 on his blog, and it looks like it’s going to be Yokai-themed. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it’s basically a Japanese folk monster. Like I said, an odd choice if it’s true. Here’s what dukemon22 had to say:

百奇戦隊ヒデンジャー

“Hyaki Sentai Hidenjya”. (Lit. Hundred Stranges Taskforce Mystery Ranger)

“Hyaki” is a pun on Hyakki Yakou (100 Demon Night parade) from folklore.

The rangers are, as stated:

Red- Kyuubi (9 tailed fox)

Yellow- Nekobake/Bakeneko (a monster cat, not necessarily a two-tailed cat, which is a nekomata)

Blue- Yatagara/Yatagarasu (a 3-legged crow that appears in many Asian mythologies)

That would certainly be an unusual direction, assuming that it’s true. Not sure what they would do with it. I don’t know, but like I said, this is still just a rumor, a very VERY new rumor, and until something else comes out to either confirm or disprove it, we shouldn’t take this seriously yet.
