It did, they appeared as silhouettes behind the red ranger during transformation.

Oh good. I just ordered one of those Super Mega Mode cases from BBTS, and was gonna sell the normal supers if the girls didn't come out.

I meant to say outside of that part in the transformation. I'm guessing it's based on whoever is in super mode when they form the Gigazord. We'll at least see both reds, and I think yellow. I'll have to watch my shinkenger eps again.

Well shit. Consider the BOJ version.



See how perfectly flush both halves fit here? In the BoA version, there's an awkward little gap when it formed the Origami mode. There was a reason why they left out the Origami transformation. They most probably sacrificed it for the sake of elongating the forearms to make the overall Megazord look more proportionate.

When you change one part, you change everything. With these new proportions, it would be impossible to form the Origami mode, so I guess they decided to do away with it for this version. That's why the parts don't sit flush with each other in the Samurai Megazord version.

Hmm. Plausible, but I doubt it. From what I'm seeing in that picture, the symbol itself is perfect, as it lines up perfectly with the other half of the toy. The actual parts themselves cause the gap. Although you could be right, I honestly don't see them lining up perfectly even if it were sanded down.

Have we heard any news when the BOA Bullzooka gun is going to released in stores?. Wasn't it supposed to be out last month?

Toywiz.com had it listed as being released in March, but that information was likely incorrect from the start. Had the Bullzooka been ready for March release, then when the Toy Fair took place in February, the Bandai reps would have had a fully functioning & completed toy to show off. Instead they had a mostly completed toy, but it was still tied to a large sound box for all the various sounds it would make.

Since it is likely to be part of the Fall Line, I'd say expect it around the usual May to August time frame.

You only need to sand down the feet, but it would stay a bit more flush than what was shown before (which i probably won't do because I like the little feet on it). You are right though that the symbol itself would not be perfect, that'd probably take some putty to get a full one going on.

Please do, I would love to do it myself but I want to see how you got the joint going.

I haven't been able to pick up a Samurai Megazord yet. How close to Origami mode does the red zord get? The Origami mode is one of the reasons why I wanted to buy the zord in the first place. So its kind of a bummer to hear that the BOA version doesn't do that.

I actually hadn't watched the toy fair video in full until now. While I won't endlessly comment, there are a few things of mention that I'm sure others said that are renewing my hope for the next 8 months:

- Transforming Gigazord is said to work with the zordbuilder system
- Tiger Tank is also zordbuilder compliant
- 4 inch figures are in the works that weren't at the toy fair. Super girls and more villains are my guess.

I'm anxious to see how the Gigazord and Tiger Tank work with the zordbuilder system. There is really a shitload of stuff yet this year to see:

Retrofire Claw zord
Red/Gold Sword Cycle
Electronic Mega Gloves
RC Megazord
Gold/Blue Shogun 8"
Super Mega full team 4"
4" Shogun Red
Auto morphin red/blue/green/gold
Barracuda Blade
Gold Training Set
Bullzooka
Shogun Helmet
Pink/Green Mega helmets
Electronic Samuraizer
Build and Morph sets
Morphin Vehicles
Auxiliary Claw/Scorpion/Lantern
Morphing Gigazord
Tiger Tank

Damn, I just wish they'd get to releasing this stuff.

It does not. Lion mode with arms and legs folded in is as close as you can get without modding.

Buying a Shinken-Oh just for the origami is something I've considered often, but the zordbuilder system during Samurai and MMPRv2 is incredibly impressive. They're sacrificing some show/shinkenger toy accuracy for something that is helping toy sales a lot.

I have the DX Shinkenger Mecha collection (enough to form Samurai Ha-Oh anyway) only because I bought them before we even found out about Saban buying back Power Rangers. Anyway, I have to say, although I love my mecha, the american versions don't look much different either. The emblem mode is cool, and I think the Dragonzord was the only one that got shafted, but other than that, the Megazord looks pretty much the same.

To be honest, I might just pick up Samurai Gigazord (the transforming one thats more in scale with the other Megazords), just for the sake of having some cool and wacky combinations. Its just a shame you can't attach the Battlewing to the Bullzord withouyt losing articulation though. And I am looking forward to the release of the Scorpion and Clawzord. I think it'd be kind of cool, yet awkward at the same time to see the Clawzord support Zord combining with the Deluxe Clawzord as a new arm.

Of course it would be neat to see BOA do an Auxiliary (spelling?) version of the Lion Folding Zord where it becomes something like an arm or a leg. As for the other versions of the Samurai Ranger figures, I'm having a hard time right now, deciding on whether or not to get the Armor Morphin figures. I mean, I loved the Switch Morphin ones, so I'd think that the Armor ones would be cool to have as well. Especially since they have a different gimmick. Just a shame to me that the figures don't include weapons. Ironically, the last time I was at the Walmart in Vienna, WV I found a headless Red Ranger Armor Morphin figure and the manager still wanted to sell it at the full price for $11.00, even though it was in fact missing its head.

Go figure.

I bought mine afterwards, and while I will agree that they do look incredibly similar, the Ha-Oh easily dwarfs the gigazord. Also, when you compare the battlewings, the BoA version looks like a cheap happy meal toy. Though at the same time, I wouldn't suggest the BoJ version to anyone because of the ridiculous price...I just happend to get lucky and find mine for cheap. (180 for aux, 90 for Shinkenoh and a shodophone, 30 for Daikaioh, 150 for Mougyudaioh)
