What would usually take an hour to show in regular cinemas(VS movie) in a regular year is going to take a year to tell.

So I wonder who are the Patoranger and Lupinranger true villains. I guess it could be either if we just had one team for the year

Patorangers and the Ganglers

Lupinrangers and Ganglers

Well, the true villains would be the Ganglers. But there's going to be some kind of conflict between the two teams as time goes on. Thieves don't play nice with police forever.

Assuming that what we've been shown is true; (I.e. that the VS Vehicle in the changer sets is identical to the ones in other releases) the entire first quarter should cost me about $400 including shipping. That's astronomically lower than what I paid for Kyuranger's first quarter, so I'm more than happy to surrender my funds to the overlords at Bandai.

(All hail their greatness and refusal to use stickers anymore on DX robots.)

Speaking of kyuranger, do you think that we know that the mecha are going to be the collectables for lupato, does this mean the rest of the kyutama are going to be released next year, like how the remaining ranger keys were released during go-busters? (posted here so I don't want to avoid any spoilers in the toy thread)

I would say that's probably a safe bet. But we still don't know what form the releases are going to take. I wouldn't be surprised if at least a few kyutama were released in after-series dvd specials. Sort of like how Ex-Aid is releasing more Gasshats that way.

We'll probably know closer to the end of the show how that's all working out.

No I mean in a regular season the teams would get their own specific villains to handle.

Either one of them might get the Ganglers and then there would be a second group for the Patoranger's or LupinRangers

It would be like the Machine empire taking on the Zeo rangers and Alien ranger(No Rita and Zedd) for an entire year.

Ah, gotcha. No in this case it's one enemy group. Both are fighting the Ganglers; it's just for different reasons.


Oh , and just to clarify re: GoodStriker, in case anyone assumed he wasn't, he is indeed electronic.

Update- ImageAnime has preorders up. Probably going to buy most of wave 1 from them, as my office is incredibly close to theirs, and even with their higher prices, not paying shipping for this smaller 1st wave makes it worth it.

I'll pick up the rest via cstoys (like the sofubi figs).

Nope. By all accounts there are 6 actors. So unless they're going for some weird fight club thing (which they're not), both Reds are separate characters, with LupinRed being young (17), and PatorenIchigo being older (22).

But let's keep the non-toy dicussion to the Rumors thread

It is a bit of a tricky situation, because in utilising the mecha as collectibles, you kind of limit how many you can produce. Look at the number of KyuTama, or even ZyudenChi... and compare that to the Ressha. It'll be interesting to see how they handle the VS Vehicles as collectibles, especially before GoodStriker appears.
It's been like this since Gokaiger. Ranger Keys still sell and then they sacrifice Go-Busters to not have collectibles and release more keys.

Ever since that, it always the odd year Sentai (Kyoryuger, Ninninger, Kyuranger) that got both collectibles and mechs as separate things, and coicidentally they're the one that got adapted to Neo Saban Power Rangers. Probably doing collectibles every year for Sentai will use bigger budgets and Bandai focused more on Rider now so Rider always have collectibles every year.

That's true, though Ninninger also had a limited number of Nin Shuriken thanks to the electronics. Unlike Kamen Rider (see the number of Lockseeds or Gashats), it looks like Sentai collectibles with electronics tend to be limited in number. And if we're getting really technical, I wouldn't really count the Cube Animals as collectibles, either. But yeah, by and large, your observation holds, and I do think it's reasonable to assume that Bandai opt to alternate out how large a focus there is on the collectibles with Super Sentai.

Not so much with Kamen Rider, of course, haha!

There's definitely evidence that seasons like LupinVSPato are stopgaps to deal with the larger collectible-based toylines of the preceding year. They want collectors to have the money to afford the rest of those collectibles, and the new toy line.

On that note, for the first time ever in my life, I actually made an "appointment" of sorts to go into a physical store and preorder Sentai toys. That's going to be a weird and dangerous day lol.

I feel like the collectibles this season are...meh. Which I'm actually fine with. I'm pretty burned out on collecting the Kyutama already.

I quite like them, but then they aren't really collectibles for that very reason. They're going to be selling KyuTama at least until the end of next year's first quarter. Maybe even later, depending on how we're getting the rest.

One of the main reasons I'm looking forward to this show is that it gives Toei another chance to bring back the Dekarangers and whichever Space Sheriffs they can muster.
