I finished these pretty quickly but I have yet to see anyone actually talk about them aside from that one old article that announced them in the first place.
I'll add the titles and add my own go at the plot and explanation of what I think that video's are about. The video's will most likely be removed at one time or another since it on Youtube you know. And if they do you can easily find them are your own again lol

The Sense Of Wonder.  

The first video is my favourite and creepy enough it also kind of falls in with the season. Its a sad romance story and simply beautifully executed. 

My xxx is Best in the Universe

Second up is a rap video (STAY!!) This is Gurren Lagann and for some reason I don't hate the rap just like I did with the original music video's Row Row Fight the Power!!!
This is pretty simple.
Long explanation that you probably already figured out: 
Short but obvious note that you didn't think up before I showed you:

Kittan Zero

I'm not even going to spoiler tag this one, Its about Kittan so it has to be awesome right? And of course it is! It could even be canon if the haircuts of certain characters weren't so different from what they originally had in the series. The best way to take this is about how Kittan tells the Dai-Gurren crew how he originally got his Gunman whilst being drunk of his ass. lol Get ready for an epic showdown of manliness even from the sisters! :D

Kiyal's Magical Time 3 Minutes Before.

In this PV Kiyal is a much younger girl who's going to high school and is friends with Darry. O and they are both Magical Girls! It really cutesy and adorable and I <3 Kiyal but this isn't really the song for me lol

Gunman Symphony

The 4th instalment is about when the Gunmen where first constructed around the time Genome was just a child. This shows the capabilities and the diversity of what the gunmen could have been if not for the Anti-Spirals. Luckily the Dai-Gurren crew made it all possible again :) IMO this is a little bit boring but hey if you like the Tech specs this is the video for you! :)
Also: 02:25 This soooo reminds me of Gundam! :D

Dai-Gurren Good Bye

I love this video! It does solve many continuity problems and it does it so beautifully :D

Big Building

Sadly this hasn't much more plot then the original series. Its still cool heroes beat villain up to a pulp! BUT from what I see here this is supposed to play out in either Victorian England or Victorian France. It turns from a Medabot-like battle to what I can basically describe as an modern art battle. This is the one that confuses most people, but non the less I did find something familiar in the video in the form of Ogon Bat and Doctor Nazo other then that this video is just Gainax being weirdly creative.

Bonus video: Yoko: Pieces of Sweet S.T.A.R.S

Because it so cute and yet not to cute!! And its mostly ignored by fans of the show. Its basically about Yoko going to Moe-verse during a time of peace! :D
I think that's all the video's I can put out without falling asleep from exhaustion. Enjoy them guys!! :)

And yet It came back me whilst searching for knock-offs.... Sigh... This is total face palm material -_-
This is the Chinese Super Sentai anime called Beast King *shutters* Its 46 episodes and has so much things taken from several series that it has the Koreans green with envy!! And that's the biggest freaking achievement of the year!!! I'll give you a summary of what I can see just from the opening. (also i'm bored)
00:00 Right from the start something unoriginal, most people would think of Magiranger but it reminds me more of Zyuranger's original mandala.
00:02 First of the robot looks like RID Megatron with a weirder helmet.
00:05 But now you can CLEARLY see where they took it from!!  And they even name it the Mythical Beasts Megazord xD
00:06 This kind of stance looks familiar doesn't it? Reminds me of Transformers.
00:07 And for the record IMO the tortoise actually looks cool! Unlike the other. 
00:08 - 01:11 Blurry blandness. 
00:12 Big eared Galvatron!!! xD
00:16 Nope neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeveeeeeeeeeeeeeeer saw this before.... ahem.... 
00:20 Magi Maagi Majiiro!!
00:22 Never saw that before either but i can forgive them for this.
00:27-00:29 MY EYES!!!  
00:33 God dammit they still live xP Also Megatron again XD 
00:34 Never saw the Megazord move like that!! well except that one time. 
00:38 Why are the villains cheering for the good guys? weird. Also they remind me of less likeable and dumber Bulk & Skull. 
00:39 Maagi Magi Magika!! 
00:46 - 00:47 Hakajyu Gattai!!  
00:52 - 00:58 Not card games on motorcycles, noooo they took this from something else that came out this year!
01:00 Again <3 The Turtle 
01:01 Megazord sequence activate!! 
01:04 O GOD NO!! They dance? urrrrg i feel sick >.< 
01:05 No just NO!! I can forgive this because its the company who owned it at that time due to a movie and an anime. But China.. I CAN"T FORGIVE YOU!! >.< 
01:06 - 01:34 Blandness and so booooring!. 
I thought I would be about to catch more but it seems that I overestimated this magnitude of the ripping in this video. But that doesn't mean that there isn't more.
As you can see in the picture posted above there's a second mecha which is a bland Dragonzord knock-off, Which only exists for a power-up.
I can't say much about the series itself other then it being in mandarin and hard to find on the net. Also I remember seeing this on a site posted by Digifiend, But I can't remember which one.  

As for the Toy I found:

By DM Fighter on Youtube  
I would say yes its an half-@$$ed knock-off with a few mistakes but IMO some parts of it actually look cool! If I had 2 of these and a Dragonzord I would take two of the Dragonzord leg parts from the KO's and a Tortoise for the arms. Now THAT would look cool in my collection :)

But first I was extra lucky last week since when I was volunteering for the Salvation Army I found another megazord. One which might be obscure so let me show you which one.
 Ginga Beast Rhino
 Ginga Beast Rhino
This Megazord was from Gingaman / Lost Galaxy and was one of 3 Ginga Beasts / Lost Zords which where saved by our heroes from the clutches of the Space Pirates.
What was even more lucky was that its a complete set with the box still in good shape. Something that's very rare for this Zord since it has so much little parts that are easily lost. Luckily somewhere in this city there's another big Power Ranger fan that decided to hold on to the box :)
First of 5 is the C1 Zord which is small futuristic tank and pretty much my favourite amongst the 5 small components.
C2 is an futuristic (by 1960's sci-fi standards I guess) exploration vehicle with claws.
C3 can either be a truck or or train but I'm going with truck. It holds the helmet and the main part of the huge gun.
C4 is a solar powered buggy that forms the head, Its kinda cute.
C5 is by my guess an armoured car with guns on top. It forms the arms.
The Plasma gun is called the Gigantus Buster and is missed in many collections, I'm really, really, really lucky to have those smaller parts in such a good condition.
The Centaurus Megazord is AWESOME!! its so old-school and mostly vehicles which is something I like very much about it. It also happens to be the smallest DX Megazord in my collection. Its even smaller then the Red Thunderzord. lol I'm absolutely happy with this piece of Sentai mecha and I only had to pay €10 for this thing!! :D
And now for the main catch of the whole year (actually 15 years to be exact). I FINALLY own a Dino Megazord something I never really got a chance at. :D
We had to go to Leiden and it costed me €30 and next month's manga to get it but I finally got it and its just as epic as I remember it!! :)
  Most people say this is their favourite but it not my favourite. Sure its the biggest most powerful and its the Red Ranger's zord but its just not my favourite lol.
This one is missing allot of stickers which is kinda sad but not an horrible disaster, still I find it sad that its missing the sticker where its cannons should be.
  I was really worried about the tusks of this zord. I thought they would fall of all the time but they seem to be pretty tightly put in there
I'm so happy I went through the trouble to get pictures of the smaller components other wise I would not have been able to make these awesome photo's.
I already had 1 of these that I bought 10 years prior, But now that I got this one the other one doesn't seem to be that important to me lol.
  The Sabertooth seems by far to be the most complete of the 5 stick wise, It used to be my favourite back when Thuy Tang was still alive (RIP)
I also got two Triceratops because I already bought one about one year ago (I don't really remember lol) Any way I'm happy that the lady who sold me the mecha was nice enough to let my search for the final smaller stuff that most collectors don't own any more. And thus I got the horns!!
I haven't decided yet if I should glue them to one of the two Triceratops so I will never lose them. But judging from most collectors it seems to be a must.
I suck at getting the Tank Mode right but this is my try. ^_^
And finally the Megazord who I now adore and put up next to my other mecha. As you can see its as complete as I could get, it has the cannons, the horns, and the Power Sword. Can't get more awesome then that face reveal which is something that is edged in to my memory like a trauma XD
 Dino Megazord - Double Triceratops mode.
 Dino Megazord - Double Triceratops mode.
And due to having two Triceratops I can now do this!! ^^^^ :D
 Compared to the lesser Megazords I own

 Lastly: My only B-fighter
 Lastly: My only B-fighter
This is something I really missed out on. Not because I did not want the toys but because I had no luck finding the damn things!!
Luckily the same lady who sold me the Dino Megazord also gave me this:
Which is pretty awesome since I hated Jo who was annoying as hell. But I've always liked Ran . And these photo's don't do the figure justice, I even tried it with a flash and still it does not show the desired shiny glaze on the figure. Its an action figure with a stupid gimmick though, all you need to do is move the middle a bit and then it swings around the B-lancer its holding. Pretty cool but cheap and it also gets in the way of its posability.

It was only the day before yesterday that I claimed that I would ignore my most wanted nostalgic toy in hopes of getting something rarer. 
 No Dino Megazord for Ben
 No Dino Megazord for Ben
But today I did something dumb, really, really, really dumb! I was bored and went to look at the Dutch Ebay (marktplaats) I saw nothing unusual, all I wanted was to lol on how high the prices are for some of the not so good looking collectors items. But then I noticed something rare. An rare thing that last time went away for waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to much (around €110 to be exact) and seeing no bids and how close it is to my home town, I just had to bid on it in a way that would ensure that it would come in to my possession. I could have gone for €15,- or at the highest €20,-. But noooooooooooo I had to bid €30,- way to high for a starting offer. And the dumb thing is. WE DON'T HAVE THE MONEY FOR IT THIS MONTH!!!. This is supposed to be one of those cramped *save as much as you can* months, where we save just enough to pay the last bills. So now I'm stuck with a p!ssed mother, who doesn't like it one bit that I did this behind her back. It was a mistake, a big mistake and yet.... I'm actually glad that I did this!!. I never EVER got a shot at the damn Megazord because I was to young and to dumb to buy one as soon as I saw it. This will put us back about €50 with travel costs included (I fail) and this early (though all things considered long over due) Christmas gift is going to bite my @$$ when this is over. And I'm fully aware of this.
 What I'm about to buy
 What I'm about to buy
Even though the person who's trying to sell it to me failed to even form the Megazord, I'd have to say it looks pretty good for such an old toy. Especially the Mastodon Zord. But yet again the Triceratops is missing its horns lol. Some things are notable especially the fact that it has the *Sun Wukong* shield of the Red ShogunZord. But that's not what I'm interested in. No what I noticed is that for some dumb reason the Megazord has the Dragonzord's tail between its legs. Little weird but i do hope she has it. 

This was a stupid impulsive thing to do and I'm ashamed of my myself. Now I'm going to apologize to my mom for breaking my promise. LoL I feel sorry and feel happy for myself at the same time. XD (I fail)

 Due to Kuma's recent Ranger madness on the forums i decided to upload something I'm pretty sure no one owns any more. When I was like 6 I often went along with my mom to the tobacco store and since begging for even more candy was out of the question, I turned my attention to magazines. And being a big Power Rangers fan I collected quite some Dutch Power Rangers magazines. These where still being produced in Dutch format for Holland but this was the 3rd and final season and for some reason they did not continue under the title of Power Rangers Zeo. So these might as well be the final volumes released in my country. What is a shame though is that it pretty much in unreadable to you people so its all just pretty and nostalgic pictures for you guys XD

I could not save them all because my mom threw away most of them and I wasn't exactly careful with them to begin with. Still I think they survived pretty well these past 14 years ^^  The last one features Saban's Masked Rider the raped version of Kamen Rider Black RX and an add for the shit fest that is the show with illustrations drawn by the master himself. (which is the only thing that saves it)
What I have next is something I was addicted to Sticker albums, Man I was nuts for this stuff you had big stickers sold in 10 packs for fl.1- and 1 sticker wrapped around a piece of gum for fl. 0.05,- and accompanying these where both big and small sticker books. I threw away most of those but I kept this one and my Digimon album too (though i never had the chance to fill it.) If you know French you might understand something on these photo's XD
Also something I wanted to show is my Battle of the Planets sticker album. Something which I found at a 2nd hand shop. Its basically an recap of the entire show but to bad for you guys this 1980's Sticker Album is in Dutch too. lol Some of the stickers are lose due to the glue being that old. I think that I lost a few since I last got it.
Next up is something that is of some use to you guys, I got this at a retro game store and the owner of the store told me how rare these are I immediately bought it. Its a official annual book also for season 3 of Power Rangers. And this one is an U.K release so you guys can actually read it XD
And last but not least my old poster which I had on my wall for at least 5 years XD. And as you can see its still full of stickers (I was addicted to that gum lol)
Sorry for all the hazy pictures, I wanted to make this as quick as possible and if I had used a scanner (which I don't own) it would have destroyed the books. :P
