Super Sentai News

Super Sentai is a franchise comprised of 37 anime series, 4 manga series

So, the last time I was here, I was complaining about the Man of Steel movie, even though I haven't watched it, and people weren't happy about that. Understandable.

I've seen it about a week ago and made a video about it, but forgot to post it in this community. And after which, I also watched Pacific Rim with my friend and made another video about that (with him) as well, so I thought I might as well post both of that here.

Yes, that is a Power Rangers lightning bolt stuck in between the Pacific Rim logo. Just for fun. Not mocking it or anything.

Anyway, to sum it up, both movies could've been better; Man of Steel could've used more character, and Rim could've used less cliches. Both are just mindless action movies made to entertain - the latter being more the case than the former. Nevertheless, I really want more out of both these franchises in the future.

Yeah, you could complain, "Yakkity yak. This guy just doesn't get what cool action movies are meant for." You know... I liked Independence Day, and Con-Air. But I'd prefer watching The Dark Knight over any of those two, any day.

So this is my first and last toy of the DX Gokai Machine line. The others are either to expensive to or not really worth the trouble.

Pat Striker

The reason why this is my first and last Gokai Machine is simple. I just <3 Dekaranger! Not only that but I always loved the Deka Machines especially Pat Striker with it streamlined form. The moment I saw the first pictures in the rumour thread of HJU I knew I wanted to buy it. It has that beautiful red in the front with the somewhat cheesy but still awesome rainbow patterned sticker on the front like Machine Doberman and Machine Bull from the original show. I also like how this thing fits together. Aside from a few white lines like on the logo's on back and front you can't really say its not a one piece car. I've decided not to take photo's of it (lazy) but the lights and sounds on this thing is epic! I like how much it looks like the lights on the actual Dekaranger mecha. And my only strife with it is that they didn't do much with the lights. They could have let the lights go on and off switching from left to right like on a actual siren does. It would look nicer then just the regular on and off.

Any way lets take this police car apart and move on! ^_^

Deka Gokaioh

I find the fact that you have to take it apart and open everything up a bit of a downer. If you put the middle piece in its button will be pressed down and it will make the sounds before you plan to lol. But when spinning that wheel on the back its worth it with the awesome gattai sound and the cool finishing sound which actually does sound like multiple bullets instead of just one sound that's really scrambled. I love it!

Deka Gokaioh (Gun Mode I guess?)

Well this mode.... I do compliment it for the fact that the guns actually do look like the D-magnum from the side. what I do dislike though is that the left arm has that stupid canon in the way again and the other arm isn't holding it that great either.... Still at least they tried! I hope the SRC version fixes this problem. :)

And that's my Pat Striker its something I loved buying and it did not involve my wallet being punched in the money bags till it bled out those precious dollars.... Unlike what I still have to pay the shipping costs for.... O well that's for another time. See you in the next blog xD

I wish I could have done this on ''Talk Like A Pirate'' day, since it seemed appropriate... But a certain someone didn't want to pick it up :( So I finally got what I want... after 4 weeks of extra waiting... Any way here's my Gokaioh:

The box is pretty awesome and even though it keeps repeating the same patterns. I really hoped it be just as big as the Power Ranger Boxes I had back in the day but they are clearly dwarfed by this thing. I am honestly glad to have this because It will be about half the worth for this mecha lol

Gokai Galleon

 Okay lets start with the main machine of this show and the reason I bought this thing, The Gokai Galleon. Which is also the one Gokai Vehicle that makes sense for a pirate themed show. Its pretty cool. It is blocky but that's only really an eyesore if you look at it from above. Initially I was worried about the thrusters/legs in the back of the ship. From the wrong angle (again above...) they really stick out. Also a bit weird is the fact that the mouth of Gokaioh can be seen from above the Galleon. I can't help but think they at least could have hidden that. But to my surprise the sides of this galleon hide those two problem pretty neatly. I also like how the ship hides the arm connectors by making them look like cannons. Though the biggest feature I like about this ship are those bad-ass swords you can put on the front! When I first got them out of the box I thought they where diecast xD

Also

Might I add how annoying it is coming across some of the newer Gokaioh reviews and seeing how they say the main quarters of the team is in that little space behind the little masts. Which of course was disproved in the Abaranger homage episode of Gokaiger. It clearly shows its some where around the biggest mast (which can be removed for some reason btw) when the kaijin escaped the crew. Focus people!

Gokai Jet


 I am really disappointed at this thing, its so blocky some reviewers didn't even know it was a plane on first sight. True it has some cool decals and logo's and it does provide a place to hide the hat for the later formation. But I hate that it fails to hide that damn hand. Something that also raises an eyebrow is a tiny bump on the back of this so called plane. WTF is it supposed to be? If its supposed to be a rocket booster it fails at that as well. Any way this is the least favourite of my vehicles.

Gokai Racer

Gokai Racer... Gee a race car... How space pirate like.... NOT! Sure it looks cool but I really hate the fact that they choose the vehicles to be ''A Pirate ship and vehicles that boys like'' It feels so half-assed!! Any way for what its supposed to represent it doesn't really look that bad. It has wheels and a cockpit. Big deal. I do like the brown/bronze plastic parts on it though. It makes it feel less like some block.

Gokai Marine

Yes It looks like a block and it does look like some sort of marine mammal. But this is still my favourite of the 5 since its simple yet has all those nice decals painted in, like on the sides. The pink of this thing looks looks especially good compared to the old Megazords I own. (Shogun megazord should not count IMO) I especially like the gold anchor on the front. It look so nice.

Gokai Trailer

My second least of the 5. And that's because its actually a 2 part vehicle and not just some block. Then again the two part thing is the reason this thing is my second least favourite. That's because every damn time I need to make it in to a leg I need to rip the car off and slap it on differently. This doesn't really make it fun to have.... I could have gotten a Dekaranger robo....

Gokaioh

So here it is Gokaioh. I disliked the fact that its a block former from the start. On its own its not really worth that much to me. I like how the several colours of the mecha all get almost equally shown. The bronze/brown colours really looks good in this combined form. The only one that breaks this sadly is the Gokai Jet which has almost none of that colour. Speaking of Gokai Jet, For something the best swordsman of the crew pilots its can't really hold the damn sword all that well. The face of Gokaioh has to be one of the best I've seen in a while. Its so neatly detailed and it work so well with the hat it gets. A disappointment that I knew before I bought this toy is the canon. Which is tiny and just so stump-like that I can't really count it as a canon. The least they could have don is hollow it out a bit. but they didn't even bother with that. Still its a nice feature for any one who has plans on collecting the other Gokaiger mecha and I admit that it does kinda make me less pissed of about the blockiness of this entire line. The one this that annoys me the most about this formation is this *DYNAMIC POSE!!* man it takes up allot of space doing that. It looks like its shitting a brick next to all my other Sentai mecha / Megazords. And I'd rather have seen another Gaoranger type of mecha for this anniversary with it being all posable and streamlined and stuff. If this continues to next year I am quitting on buying a DX Super Sentai mecha! Only once any anniversary will I take the trouble of buying one. Instead I might focus on buying old Sentai mecha and the Super Robot Chogokin versions. 

Soon I'll buy some more stuff I want to blog about in the future. But as of now I am still waiting for the people who handle that site to call back on my to that so I can pay for everything. But that does not worry me. I still have some things to blog about first. But I'll be slow on that too. :)

And now we have reached the final blog. This time for the combinations of the two mecha.

Hyper Haken:

Hyper Haken is in one word HUMONGOUS!! The worst part is that this is the way it was packed. Clipped on a huge cardboard wrapped in foil paper. So this might be the big reason why some parts and stickers where scratched. I can't say its not awesome though. I do like it when you spread out Garuda's wings making it even bigger. The only real difference with this one and the official version is that this version has a huge piece of plastic that you can clip under the formation to keep everything together. The sad part is those damn rockets!! They are not supposed to be there. And it doesn't exactly look good. Which is why I plan remove them at a later date.

GATTAI!!!

Fusion!! Great Scram!!
Fusion!! Great Scram!!
Just kidding!! XD
Just kidding!! XD

But in the light of the Abaranger Tribute of Gokaiger I just had to try an arm swap xD It does work though! And it does actually look pretty cool with them :)

GATTAI Great Icarus!!!

Fusion!! Great Scram!!
Fusion!! Great Scram!!
Great Icarus!!
Great Icarus!!

Man this thing is awesome. Sure there are stickers missing on the wing design that takes some of the awesome away. The arms are still switched around, and the blue on Jet Swallow is still to dark... The legs are not really clipped on that good... So bad in fact that picking it up lets them fall off... And lets not forget that the Garuda head hasn't exactly got a clip to begin with... And that the wings on the back are now unmovable because of the wheels on the back of Great Icarus.... But the size of this Sentai Mecha awesome thing make up for all that!! This thing towers above all the Megazords I have!! And due to the Owl and Swallow clips it does make it somewhat more posable almost like the arms on the Thunder Megazord :D

Size Comparison

So now it also owns my Tiger Megazord in size! Yeah It really dwarves everything I ever got (Should have bought that Fortress Maximus)

My collection (note that this is not really my full collection) is growing pretty fast. And I hope to be able to blog about Gokaioh on Talk Like A Pirate Day. But I think I am not going to make it... We'll see, Bye! :)

| |

The Jetman set isn't just Jet Icarus. Its also the second mecha of Jetman. The alien built Jet Garuda.

Bird Garuda:

Man this bird mode is EPIC!! It easily falls apart because of the weight and the weak tabs but other then that its size makes it pure awesome!! The pictures could have been better. But I sadly don't own the many Tamashii stages that could have hold it up xD

Jet Garuda:

So yeah.... When I actually changed this thing for the first time I didn't really noticed HOW F#ING HUGE IT REALLY IS! My god this is where the €30 went!! In the shipping cost for this damn thing!! Aside from that remark I really like this thing. Its mostly the same size and quality as the original Garuda. The only real difference are the chest piece stickers which where diecast on the original if I recall. All this thing needed to have are new sticker with silver lining all around them. Also about those weak clips, When clipping on the left the panels that keep the chest together aren't that tight. So when I try to clip on those legs the 2 parts keep bending in really scary ways. I <3 the wingspan btw

Size Comparisons:

Damn this thing is fun to put next to another bug mecha and comparing the sizes lol So yeah here's some pictures to compare it with:

First the most logical choice, comparing it with Jet Icarus.... You can see why I think I bought Garuda instead of Icarus xD

With its wingspan it trumps the Super Kakure Daishogun's / Falcon Ninja Megazord's wing span by just a bit.

And now with the two biggest bots I got. Big Albert and the Thunder Megazord! Man these get owned easily xD

The only thing that I got that seems to go bigger then those is my Mega Tigerzord and that's only because of those dumb shoulder pats xD

Not much more to say about Jet Garuda.... But I will post the next and final blog as soon I can. laterz :)

This week we celebrated the 20th anniversary of Choujin Sentai Jetman! And weirdly enough this is the first time I actually can buy stuff on-line. So I bought the recently released Jetman set at KO Toys for my birthday. This included Jet Icarus the mecha of the Jetman. And in the light of Jetman's tribute episode in Gokaiger, I will gladly show this thing off ^^

Jet Condor

Lets start with Jetcondor the Jetmachine of Black Condor aka Gai Yuuki. The most manly and awesome Sentai hero of them all!! He's the one who returned for this week's episode.... Even though he may have died at the end of the series. This thing is 99% the same as the original toy. The only things that had been changed are a few stickers. Most notable the Jet Condor text line needs to be red.

Jet Swan

Jet Swan is the same deal just different wings and a different cockpit. The white kinda sets of the colour scheme of this plane. But between the 3 jet types for the main 5 mecha I do like these the most

Combo's

Yeah its not official AT ALL. But I like toying with the idea that Gai would help Kaori out because she's afraid again. And the two discover not only a double flight mode but also a tank mode xD

Jet Owl

Jet Owl is pretty! That is.... from one side... Yeah apparently the Chinese company that made the KO was afraid that kids would switch around Jet Owl and Jet Swallow. So for each its yellow on the right side and blue on the other side. And Stupidly the numeral stickers where switched too! So I got a stanley knife and switched them around xD Not much else to say here. I do wish they included some claws though much like those used in the series.

Jet Swallow

I like this one more the Jet Owl. I think its due to the shield of Icarus actually becoming the wings for Jet Swallow. But the shield itself is a bit annoying as the clips that hold it together are uneven. And I am frankly sad that the didn't take the trouble to correct the colour to the actual light blue its supposed to have. Still I can look past all that. I like the cockpit of this one. Especially the point forming a beak. ^^

Jet Hawk

So much FAIL! I mean man this thing sucks! Firstly I knew it would turn out to be a blocky chunk of plastic with the connectors where the arms a supposed to connect clearly visible. I also knew about the crappy hiding system of said wings. But what I did not know what how messy it is to form it as it is. Its like its missing a whole lot of connection tabs that are supposed to keep everything together. But that ain't the real problem. The head/cockpit is the problem. I know its supposed to turn inside the body but somehow they made it so that the head always tilts down all a bit so everything comes loose as soon as one breathes on it or even looks at it. Lame Red Ranger mecha is LAME!

Icarus Haken

So this is Jetman's full on homage to Gatchaman! Icarus Haken! Its coo. But putting it together and taking it apart is a bitch to live through. Even if you got the Swan and Condor parts in the cockpit/foot part keeps coming loose so you'd actually have to be very careful picking it up. Also the sticker are reverse on the Jet Hawk part. So it actually looks to be upside down. This has annoyed my so much that I tried to carefully remove the stickers and switch them around. But sadly from the first second it looked to be a failure. the stickers are very thin and the glue is really strong. So I got not choice but to leave it like that!. Unless Reprolabels come out with their stickers I requested like twice now.

Jet Icarus

Forming the Jet Icarus is not as bad as CCLemon99 claims IMO. I liked putting it together and the steps are fairly easy. But I do agree that this thing didn't deserve to be a die-cast bot. Its pretty fine for a KO btw. The part where metal used to be are pretty solid. Even without the metal. And though the chrome did get damaged on the trip from Hong Kong its still a good grade for a 3rd party company. There where a few annoyances though. Mostly stickers of course. Firstly both feet need stickers. The Condor part needs a white sticker with a vent pattern on it, and the swan part needs a similar vent sticker too. Also the numeral stickers on the arm where switched around. So blue was on Jet Owl and Yellow was on Blue Swallow. Like I said these where easily switched around but where annoying non the less. Putting that all aside I love the design of this thing its so old school! and this before the DaiZyuJin who took a massive leap to mostly non-boxy looking Megazords. I like the blade and shield. But I can't seem to let it hold the damn gun upright with out letting it fall down. So I had to put it like its aiming at the sky.

SUPER SENTAI WORLD REUNION ALMOST COMPLETE!!

Overall I am very happy with this buy especially with that great timing of mine :D

Editor's Note: Due to a annoying bug on Animevice I've been unable to use the gallery feature I've grown accustomed to. Which is why I didn't post it when the episode actually aired. Luckily my mother allowed me to finally use her browser and it turned out the bug wasn't around on this thing. So I got to blog it any way. Better late then never I guess.

| |

Though I didn't initially want to post this here as it has nothing to do with anime or manga (except if you count the comics that may or may not exist) and thus there would be no point to it. I did it any way because I was bored. This is part of a blog series that is supposed to only be on my new Blogspot account The Toku Tea Room. To be fair I think I won't be posting any more of these here and just stick to the toy blogs instead and maybe actually work on the occasional anime related blogs I was planning.

Sport Ranger
Sport Ranger

The first season of this Thai Sentai aired in Thailand for 16 episodes between 6-8-2006 and 29-11-2006. As this was supposed to be a Thai independent Super Sentai series it had to have a theme to the show that non of the official series had. So they went with sports. This works... Kinda...

Before Episode 1:

Once there was a alien tribe called Star Hunter that traveled through space conquering many planets by stealing life-force from the beings that lived on them with a very powerful item called the King Medal. But the medal wasn't strong enough to absorb all the energy and seeing how they wanted to rule all the dimensions, they made another medal called the Knight Medal. They conquered allot of planets by taking the life-force with the medals. They set their eyes on Earth. But they believed themselves to be so powerful that they weren't prepared when a war on the planet caused bullets and anti-aircraft missiles to hit their ship on its way through the atmosphere. The ship exploded over Alaska and the medals where lost. The tribe decided to retreat for now and make new medals. Some time later the medals where found and taken by two Earth scientists. Doctor Earth took the medal that was broken in to 5 pieces and Doctor Heart took the medal that was still whole. One day their lab exploded and the medal under Heart's protection disappeared.

After this even Doctor Earth noticed that the medal made monsters. So he researched his broken medal and made a ''Sport''detector machine that that can control the 5 pieces of his medal and use 5 henshin devices to apply that energy to 5 special suits that where designed to bring out the special attributes of each of the 5 pieces. He then created the SSS organization and an A.I called Darling that helps the future team. As Zordon and Alpha searched for 5 teenagers with attitude so did Doctor Earth. He needed each member of the team to be very talented at a sport that would bring out the best out of the 5 suits and their respective pieces of the medal. These where: Boxing, Tennis, Soccer, Swimming, and Gymnastics. Luckily he found 4 willing youngsters to fight the monsters but couldn't find a boxer for the final suit

Episode 1:

Rocket Puuuunch!!
Rocket Puuuunch!!

The episode starts out with a shady guy with sunglasses making fun of a Muay Thai boxer in his locker room about losing a match. The boxer is about to punch him but the shady dude promises him power just when he promises the boxer power. He then proceeds to shove a ball of light in to the head of said boxer. Who then curls up screaming in pain and changes in to a volcano-type Kaijin. The newly born kaijin feels the raw power given to him and then proceeds to beat-up and scare the other sportsmen who just happen to walk in after he changed. We then switch to our protagonist of this episode who is asked by an tourist to make a photo of him. And then the Kaijin turns up who of course scares everybody around just by being there. He is quickly met by a guy in a weird yellow uniform who begins to fight him. The yellow stranger says he is going to stop the monster to his wrist watch and proceeds to transform in to Soccer Yellow. Soccer Yellow puts up a valiant fight but alone he can't exactly keep up with the volcano Kaijin. The guy who was mentioned earlier catches yellow and challenges the walking volcano only to have and Mr Satan vs Perfect Cell effect and promptly getting his ass handed to him. The monster mentions that the protagonist was the one who knocked him out in the Muay Thai match and says this is payback for earlier. Suddenly a pink ribbon wraps around the Kaijin's arm to stop him from punching his rival.Turns out the 3 other Sport Rangers have arrived and the 4 combine their powers to temporarily scare away the kaijin. they decide to take the boxer with him to their base and we turn to the evil organization of this season. Who consist of the shady dealer, two glowing KKK-like henchmen and a Great Leader-type eye on the wall. The eye asks the dealer if all goes to plan. The dealer tells him he made a kajin and the red KKK guy congrats him on the plan in process. We turn to the SSS Building which shows the SSS to stand for Sport Searching School. As the unmorphed Sport Rangers watch over the knocked out boxer. Who gets a red morpher apparently to save his live (or something like that) . He wakes up and show to still have some pain. Swimming Blue tells him not to stand up so fast. He asks where he is and Yellow tells him that they saved him and that he is in the SSS building. The Sport Rangers do the wrong thing and rush him in the plot of the series. Telling him that they fight those monsters as Sport Rangers and that they gave him a morpher making him Boxing Red. He apparently takes it in stride and they turn their attention to a screen where the A.I called Darling shows up.

Blah Blah Blah I am annoying Blah Blah Blah Mister Voice is better Blah Blah Blah
Blah Blah Blah I am annoying Blah Blah Blah Mister Voice is better Blah Blah Blah

Darling tells ALL of the story and bores them to death. Doctor Earth (who is in a black and silver uniform) says that that he should stay inside and heal his wound for now. Somewhere outside the Volcano guy starts attacking people no doubt searching for Boxing Red. The team gets an alert and movie out. The four change first meet up with the monster who does what I think is a Muay Thai ceremonial pray... That or a lullaby... I dunno... The 4 battle the Puddy troopers of this season and the kaijin but get owned at each turn. At the base Boxing Red can't stand by any more and tells Earth that he's joining the fight. Outside Volcano guy says the lost and Soccer Yellow says that he shouldn't be so sure of that. Turns out red is behind the building and challenges the monster. He transforms an jumps off the building. He easily fights off the putty's and attacks the Kaijin with his special attack: Flying Fists! Red joins the team and they retreat for now. In the villains lair the leader finds out that its now a 5 membered team. He tells the shady guy to work harder and one of the glowing henchmen goes to the now humanized monster and tells him that to keep his power he needs to kill the Sport Rangers. Agreeing to this the KKK villain gives him a power up.

The Rest Of The Series:

The other 15 episodes are mostly regular monster of the week episodes. They get a mecha around 7 or 9 called the Spirit Robo who is awesome and super detailed. The shady guy turns in to a White Sport Ranger-like villain towards the end of the series but sadly it didn't turn in to a Green/Dragon Ranger-like plot. And in the last episode the series takes a dark turn as 3 of the 5 Sport Rangers sacrifice their lives to stop Doctor Heart who turned out to be the leader of said organization.

Season Two:

Season two has mostly a new cast with only Swimming Blue and Gymnastic Pink returning. And the villains of this season is the Hunter Tribe who have returned to conquer the planet and retake the medals. Apparently there was also a movie made but I couldn't find much more info. In season 2 Doctor Earth changed in to a 6th Sport Ranger who is apparently based on basketball, but I couldn't find any hint at his color. I am guessing White. Also it turns out that Thai law is keeping the series in the homeland So there's little to no chance of seeing this subbed any time soon. The only episode I found that was downloadable was just a 254x345 season 1 episode. Really small and not worth the trouble.

The Sentai:

Team 1
Team 2
  • Ace Boxing Red 1: The most talented SR. A typical Red Ranger who can deliver a strong knockout punch.
  • Ice Boxing Red 2: Replaced Ace after he died.
  • Yu Swimming Blue: The big sister of the group. She returned for season 2.
  • Up Soccer Yellow: A sincere guy, but a hothead when it comes to small tasks.
  • Ball Soccer Yellow 2: Replaced Up after he died.
  • New Tennis Green 1: He is the Urataros of the group. No seriously.
  • Tech Tennis Green 2: Replaced New after he died.
  • May Gymnastic Pink: The goody good girl of the group, loves shopping as much as Blue does (a new actress replaced the original but the character was kept).
  • Earth The mentor of the group who made all the Sport Ranger equipment later turned in to Basketball (white/black).

My Opinion And That Of Others Too:

I watched the raws on Youtube. There are NO dvd encodes floating the net sadly. So I don't see this subbed anytime soon. From what I saw (Not heard since I don't know Thai) its pretty good. It was keeping it more to the dark plots of Sentai rather then the lighter side of some Power Ranger episodes. And it didn't have that big of a budget, but what they did with it looked really great. Love the morphers, the suits, and especially the mecha. I am really sad that no one uploaded the encodes from outside of Thailand. I would really like to see it subbed. Though then again I can do without the ear raping Darling who is totally a Mister Voice rip-off btw! Anyway I did see some toys photo's on-line by chance but I found nothing really marketed. This makes me sad because I would really like one of those morphers xD. The opinions of others are mixed from what I saw on Youtube and several English speaking forums these past few years. Some Thai fans argue that the designs are cool but the actors are sub-par. I don't think that's the case. But then again I don't know that since I don't know Thai. The other common complaint is some scene transitions are really badly done. And I think I don't like those either.

Sequel?

FLYING PUUUUUUUUUUUUUNCH!
FLYING PUUUUUUUUUUUUUNCH!

Earlier I posted a blog about a series introduced to Thailand via a press conference a year ago. I think its supposed to be a sequel. But I don't know for sure. For the longest time this series was along with Jushi Sentai France Five the only true foreign Sentai production around. (Power rangers doesn't count as they are adaptations!) and I'm glad that's changing. :D

___________________________________________________________________

Editor's Note: I think that I did pretty well even though I don't know Thai. This just shows how far one can come to when doing a little research :)

My Jetman set is ordered and it will be here somewhere around this upcoming week. I also ordered one the 3 Gokaiger items I wanted and its already here. So all is well for now. But when I started buying things online we did something wrong. I was interested in a Turboranger item since its from 1989 my birth year. And my mother pressed buy before I could ask questions to the seller. And I thought I canceled the order, But now I'm stuck with it. lol

As you can see it looks nice for something that old. It shows the 5 rangers but not really next to their respective vehicles. It says JR which I think is the company that made the KO rather then a toyline. I say that because nowhere on this box does it show the Toei logo nor the Bandai logo. You'd have better luck finding Waldo on this box.

On the back it show a group shot of the team which is cool. Above that are photo's of the models actually used in the show and on the right is oddly enough the official version of Turbo Robo. If the seller had shown more pictures of the box instead of the crappy 24x24 picture he did use I wouldn't have bought it for this price.

Inside everything seems to intact. Even the sword is there and also the Japanese instruction paper. Which btw shows that its supposed to be like a CandyToy/Miniplay So that's at least something to be happy about. ^^

Lets start with the vehicles for Yellow Turbo and Blue Turbo which are Turbo Buggy and Turbo Jeep. They leave allot to be desired.... Since the KO company was to cheap for Blue and Yellow plastic they made them red and black and as in the DX version they form the feet. So they are really, really, really tiny... But I do like the stickers. They are very detailed and they look accurate. ^_^

Pink Turbo's Turbo Wagon is the brick of the set and seeing how this is just a little bigger then a Candy Toy set is saying something. I wish they painted the windows since I am afraid to do it myself.

Black Turbo's Turbo Truck is so big that it should have been the brick, but when doing to transformation it really does allot, so I'm not calling it that. Again I wished it had stickers for the windows and maybe they could have put a silver sticker up front to highlight the spoiler. But alas cheap company is cheap. Also the red part that was supposed to turn in to the shield is supposed to be white. They should have done that. :/

Red Turbo's Turbo GT is AWESOME!! at least the DX version! xP This is cool to but it doesn't hold up. They could have added black wheels instead of Red and again with the windows, it just annoys me!. The positive thing I can say is that awesome huge T symbol on front I <3 it ^^.

The combined form of Turbo Robo Junior looks cool but messy. Even if you transformed it like 5 times. The arms are in an eternal balancing act and the back panels of Turbo Truck are hanging loosely inside Turbo GT. The left foot is higher then the right since the fin of Turbo buggy doesn't really lock in to place making it stick out like an inch. The Turbo Wagon was annoying as hell I had to split it in two and then I had to open those the parts open too. Which went really slow at first xD. But the most problems I had was ironically with the Turbo GT part of Turbo Robo JR. (which is the easiest part on the DX version) I had to pop the head in to two small pegs while keeping the Turbo Truck parts in place and pressing an additional white piece on the GT. Which I really don't understand because It makes the head pretty much disappear on the bot. Speaking of the head it's really ugly. Instead of making it 1 color they made it red and white.

In two weeks I'll be getting my Jetman set and a new router since the lightning strike broke mine.... Yeah I'll be without Internet for 2 weeks... yay~ :/
