It’s time for another week of Megazord Madness! Round 2 is now open allowing the next round of votes to occur as well as offering you up more coupons for your Power Rangers Dino Charge purchasing needs! Click here or visit www.MegazordMadness.com to vote! It should be important to note – there was a voting discrepancy on some of the match-ups in the first round. As we enter the second round, nearly all the questionable match-ups (we’re talking votes of 12,000 to 1,200) were apparently wiped or reversed, and the apparent loser became the winner. To sum it up – nearly all the Tommy Oliver zords (Dragonzord, White Tigerzord, Falconzord, White Shogun Zord, Brachio Zord) that were losing by astronomical numbers ended up as winners and are in the second round.
We reported this via our @TokuNation Twitter account yesterday, but we are also making a front page post at the behest of our friends at Bandai America who want to make sure that this information gets out to everyone as there was a lot of concern over the original details.
Regarding the Legacy Thunder Megazord: The individual zords that make up the Thunder Megazord will indeed combine with each other to form the classic attack sled just like the original release 20 years ago. The information before was uncertain but Bandai America is now confirming that the attack sled can indeed be formed by the individual zords.
Regarding the Legacy Falconzord: The original price listed in Toys’R’Us computers showed a suggested retail of $79.99. Many fans were upset as the Legacy Falconzord by itself does very little – it’s a bird that doesn’t turn in to anything and only acts as an attachment for the Ninja Megazord and the Shogun Megazord, which currently have not been announced as upcoming Legacy items but teased as such by Bandai America at NYCC 2015. Towards the end of the show, Bandai America reached out to us to confirm that the price of the Legacy Falconzord will be $59.99. This is great news for a lot of us as we believed the original price of $80 was too high.
A very special thanks to Greg Mitchell from Bandai America for the follow up on these questions. Please stay tuned as there’s a lot of great things coming from Bandai America for fans of both the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as well as fans of Power Rangers Dino Charge!
Our very own Sentai Tamashii is attending New York Comic Con 2015 and had some time to sit down with Greg Mitchell from Bandai America. We had asked on our @TokuNation Twitter account for some of the questions you guys had for Bandai America, as well as some of our own.
We asked around 12 questions and got answers for pretty much all of them! More Ranger Keys … we remind them which ones not to forget (and it looks like they almost did!). A 5″ Talon Ranger figure? Why does the Legacy line continue to rise in price – especially that $80 Falonzord? And does the Legacy Thunder Megazord have that attack sled formation? We got the answers!

File this one under totally unexpected and totally awesome! Word has just dropped on Yoshi Sudarso’s facebook page, and been officially confirmed on the Toei Ninninger site, that Yoshi will be making a brief cameo in next week’s episode of Shuriken Sentai Ninninger!
In Yoshi’s words this will only be a “quick cameo”, but this is pretty exciting and very unusual. This actually marks the first time ever that a Power Ranger actor (from the excellent Dino Charge no less!) will make an appearance in an episode of a Sentai! This episode also marks the return of Metal Hero Jiraiya! So this is going to be one very exciting extra special episode of the series.
Whether you’ve continued following Ninninger or not we think it’s safe to say that this is one episode that people across the world will be tuning in to! We’ll see you next week Yoshi!
Some new images from the second wave of Kamen Rider Ghost toys have been posted online!
*We now have our first look at Ghosts’ upgraded form, Ghost Tokon Boost! This design adds a flame motif to Ore Damashii and greatly enhances his abilities.
*Tokon Boost Damashii gets a new weapon- the Sunglaslasher! This sunglasses-shaped-saber can hold two Eyecons and perform combo attacks.
*A THIRD Kamen Rider for this series has been confirmed- Kamen Rider Necrom will be joining the battle for Damashii! While the new design remains hidden in silhouette, Necrom will henshin using a wrist-mounted changer (tentatively know as the Megaulouder.)
*Last but certainly not least, we also have brief teasers for the next two Damashii forms- Goemon and Ryoma along with three upcoming Eyecons– Grimm, Sanzo and Himiko.
Stay tuned to TokuNation as we keep you up to date on all Ghostly details!

A new round of auctions have cropped up on Chinese auction site Taobao showcasing some upcoming Power Rangers Dino Super Charge products in packaging for the first time! Among the items listed are some things we saw back as SDCC as well as a surprise or two:
With these packaged samples turning up on the secondary market it’s probably a good indicator that they’ll be hitting actual retail in the near future! keep your eyes peeled and if you spot any of these new charged up items be sure to share your findings in our Toy Sightings Forum!
Here are some images of the Power Rangers Dino Charge figures on display. Unfortunately, there was no new product revealed at NYCC 2015 this year. The diorama on display looks identical to the one seen at SDCC 2015. What was shown is as follows:
– Dino Charge Megazord
– Ptera Charge Megazord
– 5″ Figures (villain waves)
So while it’s not Poisandra or Dino Super Charge, either way it is still awesome to look at, so check out all the images after the jump!
Some brand new items are on the way from Bandai America at NYCC 2015 in the Legacy line of items! While most of the news broke yesterday, we have some more pictures of these upcoming items:
– Legacy Falconzord
– Legacy Communicator
– Legacy Blade Blaster
Also on display were:
– Legacy 5″ Movie Figures
– Legacy Thunder Megazord
– Legacy Black & Gold Megazord
Check out all the images after the jump!
Some new information regarding the upcoming Movie War between Kamen Rider Drive and Kamen Rider Ghost has surfaced online!
Of particular interest, recent reports indicate that Movie War Genesis will be presented as a single contained story featuring both Riders. This is a drastic change of pace from previous Movie Wars, which generally feature three separate story bits (one for each Rider and only a short teamup at the very end).
The director of Movie War Genesis has also been announced- Osamu Kaneda, veteran of Kamen Rider Gaim Gaiden and Super Hero Taisen will direct the film. The script will be written by Makoto Hayase– a newcomer to the tokusatsu genre.
Movie War Genesis will be released in theaters on December 12 2015! Stay tuned to TokuNation as we keep you up to date on all cinematic details!
