Arms Change Bravo Banner

At long last, Mister Dangerous has finally arrived on stage!

The second Premium Bandai Arms Change exclusive figure is now on its way to collectors’ homes and Youtube reviewer wotakufigher has put up an in-depth look at the Armored Durian Rider, including a close-up look at the armor transformation and Bravo’s appearance with other Fruit Arms.

Definitely another fantastic addition to the Arms Change series!

While Kamen Rider Gaim draws closer to the final act, a new form for Armored Rider Ryugen has been revealed: Yomotsu Heguri Arms!

Putting this form into perspective, the name Yomotsu Heguri is quite possibly a reference to a Japanese myth involving the food of the dead, how this plays into the show is still unknown but could lead into some very interesting develoupments with everything else currently in play.

Do note that the credibility of these scans are still being put into question, this is still an unconfirmed rumor and should be taken with a grain of salt.

At the SDCC Legendary panel, Director Gareth Edwards announced that he will be back to direct Godzilla two, and then show the attendees at the panel a teaser featuring “historical” footage and a voiceover by JFK revealing that there are more threats out there as the names of creatures flashed on the screen, they were: Mothra, Rodan, and Ghidorah.

 

Gareth will be directing another film before tackling Godzilla 2.

 

 

Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger

Straight from the just concluded Shout Factory SDCC panel we have a huge official announcement from the company. A complete series release of Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger, fully subbed, is happening!

That’s right folks, the show from which Mighty Morphin Power Rangers drew it’s source material will be released on a complete series DVD set with full subtitles! And chances are that with Shout Factory’s history of including incredible extras, this set will have some great surprises! When asked about the release itself Shout Factory’s Brian Ward confirmed that this was Saban Brands idea. So this came directly from them, as in Saban approached Shout Factory about putting this release together.

While at the panel we also asked about the black sheep of the Saban Tokusatsu family, Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. This often forgotten but excellent series is a personal favorite of mine and I was curious as to whether it could ever see a release. Brian Ward put it this way, there are legal rights issues to releasing certain series such as Mystic Knights and he went on to specifically mention that Masked Rider falls into that same category. The rights for shows like this don’t necessarily sit in Saban Brands hands, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they won’t happen.

Kamen Rider Drive Merchandise Catalog

A full scan of the recently-uncovered Kamen Rider Drive merchandise catalog is now online! Translation of this material provides several key insights into the upcoming new series- but still, ALL Kamen Rider Drive details are UNCONFIRMED BY OFFICIAL SOURCES AT THIS TIME. That being said, here’s what the catalog has to offer:

*The collectible gimmick for this season is Shift Cars -small vehicles that interact with the Drive Driver to unlock new powers. Apparently Drive has at least three combat Types- Speed Type, Wild Type and Technical Type. Future Shift Car releases may lead to even more fighting Types.

*Kamen Rider Drive’s main weapons are the Handle Sword (literally a steering wheel with a sword attached; turning the wheel charges the sword’s power) and the Door Gun (a handheld blaster; slamming the door reloads the gun).

*The scans also offer a brief look at a different character, presumably Drive’s rival- Machin Chaser! This character uses a different weapon- the Brake Gunner but his combat Types remain unknown.

Despite everything we have learned from this new merchandise catalog, we still have no real look at Kamen Rider Drive himself! We can only hope this changes in the near future, and until then we ask you join in our ongoing Discussion Thread to share your thoughts on the 16th Hesei-Era merchandise line!
