Thanks to Youtube user Wotakufighter2121 and a heads up from Tokunation member RiderSkyward we have our very first look at the DX LT-06 Tategami Rai-Oh from Tokumei Sentai Gobuster! This figure is BIG, interesting, and looks like a lot of fun. For some it may not be worth the high price tag and to others this fine toy may seem like too little too late in the Gobuster DX line. However this figure looks to be a great addition to any Gobuster collection. This video review shows off the Rai-Oh in Robo, Lion, and Bike (with Gobuster Ace) modes but does not show off it's combining gimmicks with the other DX Buster machines.
UPDATE: Video now posted with additional combinations!
Credit to Wotakufighter2121for the video, he has a lot of cool reviews, even does a nice little bit of guitar at the end =]
Anyway...Looks pretty sweet to me, cannot wait for the minipla version. Other than that I think I need to save my pennies and get the DX mecha off mandrake, might skip Ace though and just go for the King combo.
Wow, that figure is massive, and very impressive. It reminds me of the difference between the White Tigerzord and the Red Dragonzord back in Dairanger.
I thought the figure would be rather stocky, but it actually looks pretty lean. The shoulders were surprisingly thin, but the whole thing looks great in proportion and shape. I can see how people might not like aspects of the overall shape, such as the thing waist and large thighs, but it reminds me of Beast Wars/Machines and I really dig the design.
I think it's going to cost a terrible penny, I might have to scour Mandarake in the future too. Does anyone know how much it will cost?
As much as I hate to admit it, this video makes him look a lot better in RaiOh mode.
That said, I still hate the lion mode with a passion(why does the head detach, just to put a tire-sunflower mane in between the head and the neck?), and I certainly don't like him more than the rest of the line.
sweet mercy! he's almost Gigazord height! and he DOES combine with Ace in Vehicle mode! a sweet mercy! if I buy this I'm gonna finally buy DekaBreaks Mecha to have these guys with My Dekaranger robo Full Blast custom!
Further proof the Go-Bust Mechs could all look that amazing if they really wanted them to. Lazy Bandai.
You... may want to wait to pass judgment sentai. He also posted a video of this thing combined with the other machines. It's..... not pretty. From the front it looks fine but the literal monkey butt and the thickness of him from a sideview is pretty bad. I still think it looks better than the combos which involve the Ace though.
