It's that time once again! New toy catalogues for Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger will be out later this month, and with the reveals in them looming we have a few advance rumors of what we'll see.
- #9 Pleson will be a violet & white plesiosaur partnered with Kyoryu Violet and will have 3 modes. Plesiosaur, boat/sub, and a robot mode named PlesOh. When Pleson combines with Gabutyra and Bunpachy Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin is formed!
- The rumored Kyoryuger summer film will feature a brand new Zyudenryu, #0 Tobaspino, a blue & yellow spinosaur. Tobaspino can combine with Bunpachy and Ankydon to form SpinoDaioh! It's rumored that Tobaspino will be a repaint/remold of Gabutyra!
- Last but not least Kyoryu Red will be receiving a personal power-up. He will receive a new gun modeled after Gabutyra called the Gabutyra Dokanival. (Dokanival being a play on the word for boom and carnival). When the Dokanival is combined with the Gaburevolver he becomes Kyoryu Red Carnival!
As always remember to take rumors with a grain of salt. In this case several. But none the less, true or not, these are some exciting rumors indeed!
The last of Bluefin's update, we have release info for Ultra Act Ultraman Nexus Junis Blue Mode.
He’ll be released in August along side the Shocker Combatman and Kamen Rider 1 for the retail price of 37.99. A wide array of effect parts will be included to replicate his signature attacks, along with a swappable red chest piece and alternate hands.
It seems that some new images of Kamen Rider Wizard Infinity Style are making the rounds today, credit to Tokunation user AoBlue.Uchusen Magazine #140 features an awesome multi-page spread on Wizards' ultimate form. Created from Harutos' tears and his desire to protect others, this form contains so much magical power that it transforms Wizardragon himself into it's weapon, the Axecalibur.
Wizard Infiinity is likely to debut in Episode 31 "Tears".
From Toy Reviwer Shishioh, we have some extensive in hand photos of the S.I.C. OOO Effect Set which adds a swappable TaToBa Greed head for the S.I.C. TaToBa figure, and Eiji’s partner in Medals collecting: Ankh!

We're kicking things off with what makes the Dino Rangers possible, their Dino Morpher! Each stock morpher comes with a Tyranno, Tricera, and Ptera dino plate to represent each ranger. When attached to the morpher, each plate activates one generic sound and one unique sound.

Enterbay announced that a high end 1/4th scale Kamen Rider Ichigo figure was in the works back in 2011 but have remained silent on the project ever since the reveal.
Almost 2 years after it’s announcement, and we’ve finally been given a release date for this piece. Enterbay’sKamen Rider Ichigo will see a release sometime in late April 2013. The new photos posted by Enterbay shows that the figure will indeed have some kind of light up gimmick in his eyes. Although a price has not been announced as of this posting, you can expect the final price tag to be quite hefty.
Thanks to Tokunation Member OtoyaKurenai for the heads up!
The mysterious adventures of Fuuto City are set for re-release in perfect high-definition!
The first boxset of W's re-release will be out in mid-July, containing 16 episodes all for the low, low price of 20,700 Yen. Details on the rest of the series are not yet available, so stay tuned for more!
After several months of mentioning this new character in magazine scans we finally have our first image of Green Hippopotamus! Green Hippopotamus is of course the final member of Dobutsu Sentai Gobusters from the upcoming Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters V-Cinema! We see him here with fellow new character Black Puma and their universes' Pink Buster (Rika Sakurada). Remember the Dobutsu Sentai is an alternate world version of the Go-Busters that based themselves on animals.
An interesting thing to note is that the actor playing Green Hippopotamus is actually none of other than Tatsuhisa Suzuki. Who also happens to be the voice actor for buddyorid Usada Lettuce!
Now this is certainly a strange and interesting piece. World Box Studios revealed their next entry in the Lakor Baby line and it’s none other then Ultraman.
Even more interesting is that the figure will indeed include a Kaiju to fight...and not just any Kaiju but the King himself: a little baby Godzilla as an accessory/companion piece.
Standing at 150 mm, other accessories included with this figure are: two swappable hands, two ladles, a bracelet, energy effect parts, a building, and an in scale human figure.
Released with the tag line “Take Happiness Home” however, with the release date not officially revealed as of this posting, it is currently unknown when you can take this bundle of happiness home...or for how much.
Thanks to Tokunation Member Sideswipe Prime for giving us the heads up!
Tokunation.com is back with it's final tribute to Power Rangers In Space and this time it's a big one! Today we have a complete gallery the DX Silver Titanus figure, a rare piece that came out at the tail end of the In Space toyline. Rumor has it that Silver Titanus was originally meant to have a brief appearance in the shows final 2 episodes, Countdown to Destruction, for the epic final battle! It only has 2 official combinations, one with the Mega Winger, and one with the standard non-winged Mega Voyager. The others pictured here are just there for fun.
What's even more interesting that you may not know is that Silver Titanus was designed by PLEX! Yes that's right PLEX, the Japanese group responsible for designing nearly everything in Super Sentai from ranger suits to mecha to changers, designed this bad boy. We've included a scan from a PLEX design book released in 2001 that showcases their original line art for Silver Titanus as well.
Silver Titanus is a heavy repaint/remold of the original DX King Brachion (AKA Titanus) figure from Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger. Some of the accessories from each are even capable of being swapped between the 2, and though the electronics have been removed from this release there is still an accessible battery compartment.
This Saturday April 6th will see the return of Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger for our viewing pleasure! To prepare us for this some new magazine scans are making the rounds featuring the various characters of the new season including Malsheena in her new powered up form, new villian General Two, and of coursethe Akibarangers themselves and their new looks!
We also have looks at the toy merchandise that will be released under the Akibaranger banner. New S.H.Figuarts for each of the Akibarangers & Delu-Knight included. And just as suspected the Japanese releases of S.H.Figuarts Tyranno Ranger and S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ranger will indeed be tied to Akibaranger! Let speculation run wild but this more than likely means we'll be seeing some more Akibaranger themed accessories with these characters like Red Hawk and others from Season 1!
ZUBAAN! Here's a gallery of the candy toy figure of ZUBAAN! From Gogo Sentai Boukenger. Zubaan only spoke one word, ZUBAAAAN! And that's all he needed to say. This was a completed figure, and only needed labels applied. There was no construction involved at all. His transformation is simplified from his DX toy, the jewel on his chest didn't lock the toy it only turned on a peg.
Earlier this year, we posted a picture featuring Gavan Type-G standing amongst his fellow Metal Heroes- Janperson, Jiraiya, Jiban, SyncRedder, B-Fighter's Blue Beet and Kabuto. Well, new scans shown reveal that they may not be the actual Metal Heroes after all...but the Gokaigers transformed into them using the Metal Hero Ranger Keys!
Does this mean we may get another Movie Ranger Key release like the OOO Key Set during the run of Super Hero Taisen last year? Only time will tell!
