They seem pretty awesome. From what I can make out, they include voice clips from all of the cast, as well as the henshin sound from the show. The only diecast metal parts are the ring on the Aurachanger and the whole Kiba emblem/ring piece.

It's confirmed that the Kiba Ranger Key and inner silver circle of the Aura Changer Key is Diecast. Nice, I may have to get this.

Toku Taku has it up!

I went ahead and got it from AnAlpha (Tokullectibles)... his price is great. EMS shipping alone was $40 from Toku Taku!!!! Fuck that.



(This is why it's getting harder and harder for me to buy from Japan)

Yeah, the moment I saw AnAlpha's early bird price I knew he was the winner for my money.

I missed that... but it's no biggie... the $145 shipped alone was well worth it.

I waited to see exactly how the prices differed... any more, I'll just buy straight from him.

As much as I want to buy in on this now I can't. I'll have to wait a few weeks, but I don't think it's going to sell out. This doesn't appear to be a limited run, no particular number is listed on the page so it could be one of those "make how ever many is ordered situations". They'll be accepting orders until December 26th so hopefully I'm right in my assumption.

With Comic Con, Legacy Ninja Megazord, Legacy Helmet, PlayStation VR and the freakin Pro. I'm financially exhausted for the rest of the year. Lol.

You're right, it's not limited at all, though preorders through Bandai are over on December 26th (or until they sell out of their undisclosed max run capacity, whichever is first).

I'm sure most will be ordering extras so that they'll be available even after preorders close.

I am surprised Bandai is selling this all as one set. Well I need a friend who is also interested and willing to split the bill.

I'm not.

There's not as much to these as the Doron and Buckler. While I think they could have gotten away with selling them as individuals... one, they probably want to keep the prices at a certain level, and two, selling in sets gets them out quicker and able to move on to the next thing faster.

I'm sure they have a plan. It's just that there's not much to these changers. I have a Kiba Changer and it's tiny and has next to nothing with sounds and lights. With limited space for sounds and lights... each one would be a harder sell at over $100 unless they supplied something to go along with them.

I for one am glad for the sets.

Well the down payments for these will be driving me nuts as I have a preorder I will have to pay by the end of this month as well.

Isn't the Kiba Changer and the left arm portion of Aura Changer near, if not, identical mold wise? It was probably surprisingly cost effect to give us both Changers instead of coming up with a new bonus item like the Dino Crystal or lil Ninjaman.

It is.

However the Kiba Changer's white actually has a little metal flake in it opposed to the Aura's solid black.

But your point stands, yep.

Still, I'm incredibly happy it's getting released. The worst part is waiting until March/April to actually get it.

Oh yeah... I mean, you don't know how many times I've debated on getting the original. My Kiba was a hell of a deal, $250... so I snagged that. But the Aura has just been out of my reach.

That's why I hope they continue. I don't have an Accel Changer or Degitaizer... both of which have skyrocketed. I've had 3 Keitaizers... still have one that's pristine. So I'm drooling over here waiting to see what happens. To be able to finally own them would almost make my Changers from every Sentai complete.

It never even crossed my mind that Degitaizers might happen. That's a must buy for me.

Accel Changer is probably a yes too, but a little less of a "need" for me since I managed to repair and relabel a Turbo Morpher into one... I wonder what kind of bonus that one might get. Little ranger vehicles?

Well, I am keeping my options open till the end of December to get my down payments done. Maybe I can have a friend of mine help me pay for it as I only care about the base Aura Changer and my buddy being a HUGE fan of Tommy.

Probably a transforming Giga Formula (Turbo Ram)... so it can drive like the go-kart it is, then can transform to cannon mode.

What are you not sold on? Not being a dick, I'm genuinely curious.


I for one wouldn't pass them up. The originals go for $400-$600 dollars. The Kiba being in the lower end of that. To get both for less than you can one... yeah, I'm not skipping them.
