Seriously, it slipped my mind that I was describing Neros/Grimlord. Nice pick-up. (but yeah, Sentai needs something like that)
Yeah, Sentai need a another villain like that again.

I’m thinking we’re going to see a Digimon/Pokémon setup. It actually makes a lot of sense since Toei is planning a new Digimon anime next year. Also shiryu means growing dragon. Maybe we could have eggs for gimmicks.

Wouldn't eggs and growing dragons be a little too on the nose? It's one thing to homage an external source like Harry Potter or Game of Thrones, but an existing giant Japanese franchise like Pokemon? I might understand if they use just one egg to grow something big like an auxiliary mecha, but an entire team as their basic item doing exactly what Pokemon does on a regular basis, it just seems too similar.

But the catch to that is many series whether it be Anime, Western Series, and live-action have had eggs synonymous with Monsters/Dragons. So have eggs doesn’t really correlate to it being a Pokémon rip-off. Plus eggs don’t necessarily have to be egg-like. In Digimon Digi-Eggs had a plethora of different features.

I would say they could go the jewel route if they want to be more distinct.

I believe you. I suppose it would be more blatant if the eggs were containers for carrying around miniature dragons who grow when released in battle.

I'm not on board with eggs. We had the "Dinosaur Eggs" in Zyuranger and Abaranger had all the mecha outside the original 3 and Brachio come to Earth as eggs. I guess it could work if they make it a gimmick and the dragon motif, but eggs just feels like it's been done.

To be fair, it hasn't been that long since ToQger and we're already back to tiny versions of the mecha that go on the transformation device.

I don't think they're too worried about reusing things.

As a collectible though? It hasn't. At least not in Super Sentai. It can maybe work, we'd have to see what sub-motifs are utilized this season.

リュウソ

Ryuuso: Leave. I assume its used a verb. Which probably doesn't mean anything. But its another translation of "Ryuusou"

Don't recognize that word; any source?

A Western Dragon would be suitable for Red.

i could see Red having a Dragon Caesar esque mech that acts as a humanoid on its own, while the other four/two having dragons that transform into humanoids and then merge with Red's mech like DaiRenOh. sort of like giving the Dragon mech knight armor.

Could work. Godzilla's pretty big, so giving Red a Dragon Caesar-mech would be a nice touch.

I can't wait to get our first look at the suits so we know which one they're focusing on, Dragons or Knights or if it's an equal mix.

Might be fun if saw Red got a zord that had a warrior mode. Sure, it means more Red-centricness but I liked back in the days of the Thunderzords with the Red Dragon having his warrior mode and fighting. Would at least give some dynamic in the beginning. I mean sure, usually they wait till the third act to give Red some new zord that he can pilot by himself, but I liked the individual warrior mode type. If they were willing to be more unique in the beginning at least, take a little note from Go-Busters where it wasn't all about just instantly combining to the newest form and finishing the monster. Have Red able to fight individually if needed, then(if say it's a five man team) the others can combine into a vehicle or something like form to also fight together. Then they can come together as the Megazord.

^ Even better, each Ranger's mecha has a warrior mode and it's combined form is not revealed until episode 8 or 9.

I rather not just go with "Dragon Caesar" for Red. At least let them read up on actual types of dragons and make it work out with a good variety of them (like a Chinese, Welsh, Slavic, maybe a feathered serpent from Mexico...)

Though it would be funny if the villains later develop an evil mech (or a 6th mecha) based on a dinosaur, considering how dragons in some cultures were just their representation of dinosaurs without knowing about their own prehistory at the time.

They're most likely doing collectibles separated from mech toys again if LuPat' sales hurt them that much......

Maybe have a Kirin in there. Since Kirins are normally depicted as a Dragon, plus we could throw in a Dairanger reference.
