More Gobuster Scans: No big spoilers here, just more toy news.

Hey, some more scans from the same catalogue that the Gobuster reveal came out of. There’s no big spoilers this time, just some cool stuff that will be available when they start releasing toys for it. Let’s see what else will be available in the next few months:

This is a chart explaining the combination and transformation sequence to create Gobuster-Oh (I think). This is how they combine:

  • Rabbit forms both arms, backs of the fist are the helicopter cockpit, forms the head, and other parts
  • Gorilla forms both legs and body armor
  • Go-BusterAce has clear sunglasses over his eyes
  • Gorilla’s head attaches to the chest, Rabbit’s to the right shoulder, Cheetah’s to the left shoulder

Not sure what anything after that says.

RedBuster/Chida Niku set:
130mm figure of RedBuster, and a figure of Chida Niku that transforms into his bike/cockpit mode.

Ranger Key Series Ride and Go:
Minicars that go when reved up, and a Ranger Key inserted. 4 kinds are  listed so far. Red Buster Key w/Buster Machine Cheetah, BlueBuster Key  with Buster Machine Gorilla, GokaiRed Key with GokaiGalleon, and GokaiSilver Key with GojyuuDrill.

Super Sentai Best 01:
Sofubi figure set consisting of GoseiRed, ShinkenRed, GokaiRed, AkaRed, Go-onRed, and GekiRed

Uchuu Keiji Gavan Figure: 175 mm figure of Gavan.

And this is just the standard top game/character watch release that comes out with almost every Sentai series nowadays.

And that’s all of them, for now. If anything else comes out, I’ll let you know!

Gobuster Story Revealed!: Are we still talking about Super Sentai, because this sounds a lot more like a Power Rangers story line…

Alright, first we got the leaked catalogue images, and now we have the official story for the 36th Super Sentai series, Tokumei Sentai Gobuster! And when you read it, you’ll get why the title is what it is. Read the story below (translation courtesy of kakeru1986 of HJU):

“A long time ago, among moutains far from any civilization, there was a center researching on human innovation. One day, the main computer of the research became malicious and went berserk. Humanity managed to stop this, and peace came back…or so it seemed.

Humans, now in peace, predicting that their enemy could go berserk and attack another time, decided to build giant robots and machine, and trained chosen warriors to fight against it. Finally, this day has come.

The name of the team formed to fight against the enemy is Tokumei Sentai Gobuster! Now their battle begins.”

Wow, really convinced now that they’re starting to pull stuff from Power Rangers. Not that they haven’t before, but it’s just much more obvious this time around. Either that, or they’re really letting Koichi Sakamoto take the reigns on this one. Either way, let us reserve judgement until we’ve seen more.

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!

New Gobuster Cast and General Rumors: Pick a naming convention already!

Looks like we’ve got new rumors for the 36th Super Sentai series, Tokumei Sentai Gobuster, and it features a new cast rumor and new plot point rumors. And this time, we get to see more Foodroids! (Wait, wrong show) Check out the current cast line-up:

The core team will be composed of  RedBuster, Sakurada Hiromu (played by Suzuki Katsuhiro), BlueBuster, Iwasaki Ryuuji (played by Baba Ryouma), and YellowBuster, Usami Youko (played by Arisa Komiya).

And here’s the current set of rumors that have come out:

  • Heroine is a favorite among “maniacs”
  • A former Space Sheriff guides the 3 rangers
  • Enemies are Supernatural Creatures/Ghosts
  • Strong comedy flavoring
  • Transformation Device is the Mission Paneler. Smart Phone type.
  • Robot is a cross between GekiTouja and SirenBuilder
  • The Partner Robos seem to be based on “Favorite Foods”. The first 3 are  meat, fruit, vegetables. The 4th ranger’s robo may be a  dolphin/representing fish.

It’s like all of the rumors from the past couple of months are starting to coalesce. Plus, the Foodroids have been upgrade to full Food mechs! Really, you take that from Fourze?

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.

BTW, how awesome is that Battle Fever fanart?!

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!

Gobuster Toys Rumors: Brought to you today by the number “7”. :P

Along with the newly “leaked” costume design from the next Sentai series, Tokumei Sentai Gobuster, there seems to be new toy-related rumors circulating which include new figures, new weapons, and even a possible confirmation of the Misson Paneler. Here’s the skinny so far:

A toy site called Takarajima listed the first wave of figures, with seven new figures all together. According to current rumors, the first six figures are of the three primary Gobusters and their partners. The supposedly that’s GobusRed, GobusBlue, and GobusYellow, with their respective partners. The seventh figure is expected to be Gavan, with current rumors saying that Ohba Kenji will appear in the series, and will essentially be the Gobuster’s leader. And other rumors still point to the Mission Paneler as the main henshin device, and that they will each get two weapons.

Also listed on the toy site were collectible items, four were mentioned in particular. Here’s a pic:

Looks like somthing for each of the figures. Could these be connected to the Mission Paneler, like the RangerKeys to the Mobirates? Or are these just little collectibles? Assuming that this is related to the mentioned collectibles, then that’s a real possibility.

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.

Tokumei Sentai Gobuster Cast Rumors: Round 1, Olympics!

Hey, the newest set of cast rumors have popped up, and it looks like one of the possible color combinations will be that of the Olympic Rings, a Red-Blue-Yellow-Green-Black color scheme as with Liveman or Go-Onger.

And currently rumored to be on the considered for the cast are:

  • Red: Hideaki Kabumoto
  • Black: Mayu Tomita
  • Yellow: Kenjirou Nagashima
  • Blue: Maika Miyashita
  • Green: Shun Takei

Who are any of these people? I have no idea. So far it’s been rumored that the team will start off with three members, Red, Yellow and Black, diverging from the standard norm of starting with a Blue senshi. And even more so, it’s rumored that this Black senshi will be female (regardless of whether or not the person pictured above is chosen), making her the first Black senshi in Super Sentai history!

Well, if any of this is true, then we’ll definitely be headed into a period of team make-up experimentation. Of course, this is just a rumor for now, most likely we’ll go through several color schemes and potential casts before we ever get any form of confirmation. But this would still be an interesting direction to take.

Go-Kaiger/Gobuster News, Info, and Rumors: Let’s get the Space Sheriff to settle this.

Hry, I know this is kinda late, but it’s still pretty exciting news! It looks like the Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan has been confirmed! We have more on this, and we have some new rumors about the next Sentai series, Tokumei Sentai Gobuster. So let’s see what’s going on:

Yes, it looks like what’s going on in the pic above is happening, and while their hasn’t been any official confirmation from Toei, the website http://www.gokai-gavan.jp/ has been registered, and the movie has been added to movie review websites like Lady Eve and Good Nagano, so I would definitely say it’s been confirmed. And it looks like the premiere date for the movie will be January 21st, 2012.

And since the recent tradition has been to throw in the next series near the end of the movie, most likely the movie will include Gobuster. Speaking of which, we have some new rumors about the next series, dealing with the henshin device they use and the team make-up:

  • The Gobusters’ henshin device is known as the “Mission Paneler” When the “Change Panel” is pushed, the Gobusters suits appear!
  • The Gobusters are composed of GobusRed, GobusBlue, GobusYellow, GobusGreen, and GobusWhite. Based on previous info, Green and White may join a little after, or be the rumored “partners” of the main time.

And in a final bit of news, this image has been leaked:

It appears to be a Gavan RangerKey, which would be inline with the movie announcement, and recent confirmation that Bandai would release Gavan mobile headquarters, the DolGiran, as a DX Go-Kai Machine. But of cousre, this could very easliy be fake, considering the number custom RangerKeys that have been created by fans since the release of the DX Mobirate. But this still would be cool, especially if they were to release it along with the DX Go-Kai Machine DolGiran. Just something to consider.

Anyway, that’s it for Go-Kaiger and Gobuster news for now, if anything else pops up, I’ll let you know.
