We’re down to the wire! The final battle is just around the corner in Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Ep.50 subbed, and even though they can use the Greatest Treasure in the Universe to rid the Universe of Zangyack forever, they’re not going to.

Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Ep.50 RAW: Decisions, decisions….

Hey, look, you can embed videos from Dailymotion now (without having an account)! It’s Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Ep.50 RAW, and this time, after barely surviving a onslaught by the new Zangyack invasion fleet, they find themselves seriously considering using the Greatest Treasure in the Universe to destroy the Zangyack (ergo sacrificing the Grand Powers of the other 34 Sentais and erasing their influence from history), when they encounter people recovering from the attack, still spurred on by their faith in Super Sentais to help save the world. Also, it’s sort of an informal Zyuranger tribute episode, featuring the return of Mammoth Ranger Goushi, along with other familiar faces. The final battle is on the horizon. Let’s set sail! (I’m gonna miss these pirate puns…) Check out the episode below:

I still feel like I’m owed a Zyuranger tribute episode, how about you? Let’s see what happens in the finale next week!

Go-KaiSilver revealed!: Who the heck is this Gai?

It’s official, Go-KaiSilver has been revealed! With regular pictures and everything! :)

Yes, this is Go-KaiSilver in his Gold form, with the special AnchorKey he uses to change into this form. And we can officially say that the character Gai Ikari (Once again, I’m guessing it’s Guy Ikari) will be Go-KaiSilver.

It seems that, like a lot of us, Gai is a human who has loved Super Sentai his entire life (in case you’re wondering, I mean that he is from Earth, wha a twist!). One day, he save a girl from a car accident, saving her life but getting badly injured himself. He passes out and meets AbareKiller (as Mikito), DragonRanger, and TimeFire in a dream. They were so impressed by his heroism that they consider him worthy of becoming the sixth Go-Kaiger and give him the Go-KaiCellular and the Sixth RangerKeys, to which he is very excited to recieve. He joins the pirate gang so that he can fight Zangyack and bring peace back to Earth.

Well, he may still be a couple of episodes away, but we’re all still super excited about it. And he’s already a history maker. For one, he is probably the first senshi to have two standard forms from the beginning, and his personal weapon, Go-KaiSpear, takes the multi-weapon concept to another level. And of course, let’s not forget about his personal robo, Go-JyuJin.

Go-JyuJin has three different forms: Go-JyuDrill, Go-JyuRex, and it’s final robo mode. In it’s final robo form, the drill acts as it’s left arm, and the Tyrrano head acts as it right arm. Very similar to AbareMax, but the head and tranformation makes it look more like V-Rex Robo. And it’s rumored that it will be able to swap arms with Go-KaiOh, but no word on any gattai between the two. Is it just me, or does this guy just seem to work in threes?

The main rumor is that he will pop up in Ep.17, and that it will be a tribute episode to either Zyuranger or Timeranger. More should be revealed as we get closer to the date.

BTW, the week after Go-KaiSilver premieres, there won’t be any new episodes of either Go-Kaiger or Kamen Rider OOO, there is a scheduled break then.

UPDATE: (5/24/11) More Go-KaiSilver scans have been leaked, let’s take a look.

Ooh, you can see the actual Go-KaiCellular in this one! And his personal RangerKey, too!

And this is Go-JyuJin in Robo mode. You like this one any better, PaladinZeo? ‘Cuz I think it looks badass myself.

And this is Go-JyuJin in Go-JyuDrill and Go-JyuRex mode. And probably the only pic I’ve seen so far of Go-KaiSilver in his standard form. Seriously, go look at the other pictures, there almost all of him in Gold Form.

That’s it for now, if any more pop up, you know what to do.

UPDATE: (5/25/11) Hey, nothing else has really popped up, but I just forgot to mention that episode 17, the one Go-KaiSilver will premiere on, will be a tribute episode for three Sentai series. It will be a tribute to Zyuranger, Timeranger, and Abaranger. And this is expressed in the different modes that Go-JyuJin goes through: the Drill mode represents Timeranger‘s grand power, Rex mode represents Zyuranger‘s grand power, and the Robo mode will represent Abaranger‘s grand power. They’re taking out three birds with one stone.

More stuff Saban hid in the closet: Zord designs for unfilmed Zyu3 project!

Hey everybody, I was just poking around looking for actual news to put on the blog (this has been a very slow week for toku news, but for anyone in regular news, they can hardly keep up) when I stumbled across this pic from the Henshin Justice Unlimited forums:

These were zord designs for MMPR’s later seasons designed by the actual Toei sentai mecha designers. The stroy behind this is that it was either designed for the Zyu2 footage, but they settled on the Dairanger footage instead, or, and for some reason I find this more likely, it was designed for their third season, the never-filmed Zyu3, as a way to replace the Dairanger mecha/Thunderzords with zords that better reflected their powers and costumes. If you look at these designs, you can see the overwhelming similarities and drastic differences between these and the original Zyuranger mecha/Dinozords. The design is much more stream-lined, much smoother and cleaner looking, and yet they stil retain the same look and feel of the original, and it looks like they combine the same way too. And it seems to have features that other mecha would use later, like the built-in bow or the drill fist. It may be possible that they went back to these designs when they started work on Abaranger, because there are just too many similarities here for them not to have used these. And as proof that they made this for Saban and Power Rangers (other than the big bold letters on top that say “POWER RANGERS”) is that they incorporated the lightning bolt logo into the design, and they included an updated version of the Tigerzord. Not only does it form it’s own separate robo like the original Tigerzord, it can also combine with the Dinozords, and the Type A formation uses the face from Dragon Megazord. In fact, this version of the Tigerzord borrows a lot from the Dragon Zord. And, at least for the Type B version, the Tigerzord could act as a cannon weapon for the main Megazord.

You know the more I look over this, the more I can’t help but notice things that would go into later mecha designs. Other than Abaranger, I can see design elemants for Hurricanger, Gaoranger, Gingaman, I think that some of it might have even made it over into Kakuranger. These designs, these concepts are just way ahead of their time compared to other mecha designs from around that time. Don’t get me wrong, if they had made, it probably wouldn’t have looked a thing like this, but it still looks like a mecha you would have seen this decade.

I just had to share this.

Just take a look at these picks:

Something to satify both Power Rangers and Super Sentai fans.

And, this is unrelated but I liked this one too.

 

And these.

 

 

 

 

And this one, just because.

 

Maybe this one, too.

That is all. 



Go-KaiSilver Debut: Meet the newest member of the crew.

The sixth senshi for Go-Kaiger has been confirmed (sorry I’m a day late, I got trapped in the Tokuverse, I’ll tell you later). This sixth senshi will be Go-kaiSilver. Here are some pics:

 

Go-KaiSilver will basically be able to change into any of the past major sixth rangers. At the moment, these include (in sequential order) Dragon Ranger, Kiba Ranger, King Ranger, MegaSilver, TimeFire, GaoSilver, Shurikenger, AbareKiller, DekaBreak, MagiShine, BoukenSilver, Go-onGold and Go-onSilver, ShinkenGold, and GoseiKnight. He can change into any of these past senshi using his Go-KaiCellular, a device very similar to the Mobirates, but looks and works differently. Pic here:

When Go-KaiSilver changes, he places a variation of his RangerKey into the Go-KaiCellular, pushes the Go-KaiSilver icon on the number pad, and hit s button on top of the device, where an anchor-shaped scanner reads the figure and changes him into Go-KaiSilver. The device also comes with an anchor shaped key that inserted into the bottom that allows him to change into Go-KaiSilver Gold Form.

 

While no one really knows if this second form will give him any extra abilities, it does look cool. In gold form, he will have special armor that includes a chest plate decorated with the helmets of the previous sixth senshi he can change into, and his helmet design changes as well. You can almost make out the kanji for gold in the visor design.

So, first impressions. In his standard silver form, his appearance is very reminiscent of BoukenSilver, and not just because their both silver, either. Because all of the Go-Kaiger have gold inlay decorating their costumes, his costume doesn’t seem that different from the others. The only real difference seems to be in the design of the helmet, the cuffs, and the collar and seams of the “jacket”. Not to mention the fact that his visor is a gold color instead of the standard black. In his special gold form, his appearance is like a cross between Kamen Rider Decade’s Complete Form and Zuban from Boukenger. A lot of people are surprised to see this extra form, but I think it’s fitting. Between these two forms, his appearance covers the two main types of sixth senshi: the kind that have a slightly altered outfit, and the kind that have an armored, highly decorated outfit. Between the differences in his outfit and the anchor motif, this makes me wonder whether this is supposed to be a pirate character or not. I’m almost getting a sailor vibe from him.

A number of people have voiced questions and complaints over the choices of the sixth senshi. The main ones are that Mask X-1, who is the first official sixth senshi despite a one episode appearence, wasn’t included, neither was Bull Black or DekaMaster. And some people think that GoseiKnight shouldn’t have been included because he technically isn’t a normal senshi, although I think he should be, as much time as he’s spent fighting with the Goseiger, and the fact that he has a name that actually has a Goseiger title, and not some off-the-wall name. Plus, there are a host of other senshi that weren’t included as sixth senshi, and a number of non-sentai and non-senshi helpers that haven’t even been acknowledged, so there’s a very, VERY slight chance that there could be either a seventh senshi or some kind of special helper that will take the place of these extra senshi. My only concern is why the buttons for Go-onGold and Go-onSilver are the same button? Does he magically split and change into Go-on Wings?(It would be so awesome if he did) Seriously, what are they going to do about that?

And as for the Go-KaiCellular, it’s a little unconventional. Instead of the staple flip phone design that’s been in use since the first cell phone changer, they went with a smartphone-esqe design. I would compare it to a Nokia phone, but it has a much wider “screen”, kind of like the Droid Pro. I’ll admit though, while the concept is unique, I’m not fond of the button design. Because it has all of the senshi he can change into on the buttons, and doesn’t use the same RangerKey system the others do, he’s very limited to the number of senshi he can change into. Overall, I like the phone, and the concept.

I hope the character behind the mask is just as impressive as the costume, otherwise I will be beyond disappointed. Quite frankly, if they make him into that strong, mysterious silent type, and not some flamboyant, over-the top character, then I’m just going to have a very long talk with the writers, producers and directors at Toei. And while I’m there, I may just have to bring up the subject of net neutrality and fair use. I honestly can’t think of anyone with the gall to upload any upcoming episodes of the series onto YouTube. Somebody get on that right now!

UPDATE: (2/25/11) Just found a pic of his main weapon, Go-KaiSpear.

It has three modes, a trident mode, a blaster mode, and a special anchor-spear mode that he uses in his Gold Form. It looks like it will also come with the Dragon Ranger Key (Zyuranger/MMPR Green Ranger). Let’s keep an eye out for this!

UPDATE: (3/7/11) Found this pic just now, seems they will release sixth ranger toys with the Go-KaiSilver stuff.

 

And if you’ll notice, they are going to release ShinkenOh and Daizyujin/MMPR Megazord. So can’t wait for that, even if I probably won’t buy it.
