It’s time for another episode of Talkin Toku!

Join Kickback, Den-O, Sentai Tamashii, and special guest host Danny as they discuss their thoughts and feelings about the upcoming finale of one of the most well-received toku series in recent memory – Kamen Rider Gaim!

In the toy talk segment they discuss the hunt for Power Rangers Super Megaforce 5″ Figures at their local Walgreens, as well as their reactions to the Kamen Rider Gaim Overlord weapons in the upcoming release of the Arms Change Kamen Rider Ryugen Yomi Arms figure.

Conversation is lost when … well, the graphic in the story will make a lot more sense. Around 20 minutes in the fact we’re unscripted with no clear direction rears its ugly head as conversation changes to Chuck E Cheese?

But take a listen – find out who is right, who is wrong, and who was way off base when the Kamen Rider Gaim live stream airs later this afternoon and releases via sub groups next week!

There’s also a bit of talk about Power Rangers Dino Charge, a small wishlist for the 2015 Super Sentai series, and more stuff!

Enjoy the episode and we’ll see you on the flip side of the series finale of Kamen Rider Gaim in a little over a week!

Kamen Rider Drive Dimension Cab

With the approach of Kamen Rider Drive right around the corner, more and more scans and information is coming out regarding the upcoming hero’s form changes, toys, accessories, and so much more. Thanks to a post on the Kamen Rider Facebook Fan Page and our friends from HeroTaku.com, we have some new Shift Cars (the devices used to change forms and access new abilities) to share with you.

The scans aren’t too great but check out the new reveals: Shift Wild, Shift Technique, Justice Hunter, Spin Mixer, Massive Monster, Dream Pegasus, Dimension Cab, Mad Doctor, Rumble Dump, Fire Braver, and Rolling Gravity! Kamen Rider Drive premieres on Sunday, October 5th in Japan, but thanks to the powers of time differences, it can be viewed online through various streaming sources on the western half of the world at 7pm EST on Saturday, October 4th.

Are you excited for Kamen Rider Drive and these new Shift Cars? Sound off!

Super Megaforce Titanium Ranger 000

It’s time for another round of Titanium Power at TokuNation! In honor of the Titanium Ranger’s inclusion in the finale of Power Rangers Super Megaforce we’ve got 3 galleries coming up for your viewing pleasure. And the first one is today’s featuring the Super Megaforce 5″ Titanium Ranger from Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue!

Having only just made it to retail in the final Super Megaforce 5″ assortments, this figure has been spotted mostly at Walgreen’s. And I was lucky enough to stumble across one. As a massive fan of the Titanium Ranger I had to own this guy to display with all my other Titanium figures. If you have the chance, and can find this guy for retail price, then definitely pick him up to compliment your 5″ ranger collection. You can always use another 6th ranger. And we don’t exactly get figure of good old Ryan Mitchell very often.

We’ll also be bringing you another pair of galleries later in the week for the Power Morphicon Ranger Key set as well as the Super Legends Titanium Ranger! Stay tuned for these upcoming galleries and for now click “Discuss on the TokuNation Forums” at the bottom of this post to see over 30 images of this unique addition to the line as well as a full review!

The Power Rangers film project has lost its Executive Producer.

Screen veteran Roberto Orci has reportedly backed out of the project, choosing instead to devote full attention to Star Trek 3.

Power Rangers is still set to return to theaters on July 22 2016 with a screenplay by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz. Stay tuned to TokuNation until then as we keep you up to date on any & all production news!

Megaforce Red 001

When the going gets tough, the tough shout out “GO GO MEGAFORCE!”, and they never, NEVER let go of their weapons!

TokuNation.com is back with another gallery and review of the Power Rangers Super Megaforce 5″ Figures, and this time it’s none other than the current leader of the team, the Megaforce Red Ranger with thanks to Fury Diamond from RangerCrew for hooking me up with this figure.

This is the first time the Megaforce Red Ranger has been released in 5″ size but how does the figure hold up? Does the detailing on the molding of the accessories continue to shine as seen in previous galleries? Click here to see the gallery and review!.

And don’t forget to check out our previous galleries and reviews from this line – the MMPR Green Ranger and Zeo Red Ranger combined gallery/review, as well as the Lightspeed Rescue Red Ranger gallery and review! And stay tuned for two more galleries coming very soon – and a special gallery of the Titanium Ranger and celebrating his toy releases throughout the years!

LWW Kamen Rider Den O 40 42

“Take Care of Deneb.”

Let’s Watch Wednesdays returns to Kamen Rider Den-O but with the loss of one of our heroes. In case you haven’t noticed we’re rocking a Thursday Edition this week. Techincal difficulties on my end being to blame. But we’ll be back to normal next week.

Yuuto paid the ultimate price when his past self was erased from time. Or so it would seem. The Zeronos cards aren’t all bad after all. While the memories of a person disappear, they are protected from the ravages of time. But with no more green cards left, Yuuto must now resort to the red cards and an even greater price must be paid as well. The memories Yuuto’s made in the present will now cease to be. His past no longer exists, and now neither does his present, nor would it seem does his future. But one thing is certain, Zeronos Zero Form is a power to be reckoned with!

Den-O Trivia #15
It’s time to see if you were paying attention again! This week the show changed up something most people skip right past, the opening! That’s right, the usual rendition of Climax Jump you’re used to was replaced this week by Climax Jump Den-Liner Form. A rendition of the song sung by our lovable Imagin! Episode 40 is the first instance where the opening theme changes and the first where clips from the episode you’re about to watch are inserted into the montage.

Of course this isn’t the only alternate version of Climax Jump out there. In fact when Climax Jump was released as a Single there were 5 versions of the song just on that disc. But there are multiple other versions of the song each tied to a particular form of Den-O as well as several more official remixes of it. I actually know of at least 12 more versions of the song out there, bringing the total close to 20, all of which I have of course.

Kamen Rider Gaim Showa LockSeeds

One last hurrah for Kamen Rider Gaim collectors! Bandai Premium has opened a page for a special set of LockSeeds featuring the Showa-Era Kamen Riders!

Orders will open September 18 and release is scheduled for January 2015. The price is a somewhat steep 14,580 Yen before shipping and fees.

 

Kamen Rider Drive Action Poster

A brand-new full-length trailer for the upcoming Kamen Rider Drive is now online! This extensive preview gives us a close look at Drive’s Shift Cars and combat styles, along with a brief hint at the upcoming Movie War!

 

 

Kamen Rider Drive premieres October 5th! Until then stay tuned to TokuNation as we keep you up to date on this amazing new hero!

Lightspeed Rescue 001

When trouble rears its ugly head, you’d better make it a Lightspeed Rescue!

Continuing the galleries of the Power Rangers Super Megaforce 5″ Figures, we’re proud to bring you another legendary Red Ranger gallery. Having surged in popularity in recent years his figure is desired by many and found by few. That’s right – we’re talking about the Lightspeed Rescue Red Ranger, Carter Grayson.

Releasing in Wave 4 of the 5″ figure assortment, this figure is actually harder to find than you might expect – a lot of stores never got Wave 4 and if they did, you had one (at most maybe two) chances at grabbing the figure as he was packaged one per case.

To see all 32 images of this figure and to read the review, simply click here! And stay tuned to TokuNation.com for more upcoming Power Rangers Super Megaforce 5 Inch Figures – including an AWESOME looking gallery coming of the Titanium Ranger and the gallery everyone has been waiting for, the Zeo Gold Ranger!

A special thanks to Fury Diamond of RangerCrew.com for helping obtain this figure!
