I am definitely excited for the mecha this go around.

I am thinking that I am going to pick up a set of KyuTama, as well.

I haven't been this in love with mecha since Gokaiger. Better start saving up now, I suppose.

I kinda figured they'd have something else as a "treat". Devious indeed if true.
.


Also the other 4 mecha basically do nothing to really enhance KyuRenoh. You just swaps a leg or arm for play ability

-No new helmet
-No early season upgrade( I.E Zyou Wild King or King Shuriken Gattai King Shurikenjin )

So there's a minor "hook" for you to enhance KyurenOh with the cockpits or different mecha for legs and arms


I guess with 9 mecha for the first three months BOJ thought

"Okay. Yeah. I think we have enough"

LOL

Or it's being saved for March when all 9 + a few more Voyagers combine

And that's BEFORE the 6th ranger even arrives! Yikes

Oh yeah. Unlike previous seasons when additional mecha would be released in March( Cube Kirin or Cube Gorrila)

Nope. All 9 will be out in February

Start saving.

I like that the mecha is simplistic for kids yet not like the "PlaysKool anime eyes" mecha we've had over the years

The swapping gimmick is very simple.

Zordbuilder take notes.
It looks VERY ZordBuilder friendly. All of the limb mecha have a female port on the top to serve as legs while Red's mecha would have the male ports. The BoA version would have less paint and probably less articulation on the individual Voyagers to save on costs. (This one is selling for around 7,800 yen while a BoA version would be around $34.99)

This mecha is very tempting but I'll wait for the BoA version in 2 years. I'll pick up the vinyls of the girls for my nieces, though.

For those interested in how broke they'll be by the end of February, here is the complete price listing from the catalog.



and of course, we'll get the standard points campaign as usual.

7980 yen for the mecha? Daaaamn. That thing is still so beautifully tempting. Maybe I can sell some stuff and get it, haha. I mean, I haven't been this excited about a Sentai in years, and I didn't even bother getting the past two years of changers (even though that was always a staple point in my collection).

Space and Zodiacs. COUNT ME IN.

I am definitely going to have to sell off a lot of my collection to A. Fund KyuRanger and B. Be able to accommodate them because I have NO ROOM.

Big fan of KyurenOh. Big fan of the Seiza Blaster. Bye bye Zyuohger stuff, is all I can say.

I think I'll get a couple of those aux zords and try a little something with those female ports. Now I kinda regret getting Cube Whale.

Took out the catalog background and cleaned up the picture of KyurenOh. It really is a sweet ride!

Well, at the very least, they have in-built weapons and the like, as you posted in the rumour thread. But there's not really extra playability there, since there's only so much you can do with a static shield.

Thinking about it though, the Voyagers seem to connect on via their KyuTama, so a BoA version would have to forego that in some way or another.

@ AcceLOWorst: The KyuTama on the mecha all seem to have female ports for when they become legs. Red's BoA version would be male ports for the usual arm articulation, legs and maybe some extra male ports on the shoulders for shoulder cannons and the like (like attaching Para Zord or Ammonite Zord on the shoulders and...of course, bikes).

It looks cool and all, however I see zero points of articulation in legs. Seems like we're making a bit progress after the atrocity that Zyuohger was, though we're still on G1 level of blockiness.

The way I'm seeing it is that Shishi Voyager has half-rings on it, which the KyuTama plug into the form a full ring around the central orb. And there'll be slight concave portions for the orbs to fit into. They'll probably need to lock in place a little, though, I suppose. Is that the female port that you're referring to?

One thing I have clocked is how Shishi Voyager/KyurenOh's head works. The top of the head is on a swivel at 45 degrees, so rather than turning the whole thing around, you just turn the top half and lower the jaw to reveal the face. It's pretty clear on the "base mode" splash on the cockpit set page, and you can see that the lion's silver mane ends up around the neck of KyurenOh.

Edit: Just clocked that the peg on the KyuTama half-ring (on the front side) is probably what clips into Shishi Voyager. Similar mechanism to Kyoryuger... let's hope the clips on Shishi are strong.

funny, the first impression I had, of glancing at a pic of the new megazord, was that it was from that Chinese sentai tv show, not realizing it was the real deal...

It may be a while before we go back up to the levels of Gaoranger levels of engineering and build quality.

I'll be going for the mecha, changers and the Kyutama. Do we know if the Kyutamas will have electronics, or is it only the changer? Because if not it'll mean I won't have to buy things like the Buckle for the DX versions, and can just get the Gashapon ones.
