Lets Watch Wednesdays All Stars

Our journey with Kamen Rider Den-O ended last week and it’s time to finalize the community choice for our next segment. As we announced a few weeks ago the poll to decide the next Let’s Watch Wednesdays exclusively features 5 Power Rangers seasons as choices!

Voting has been pretty intense so far and our two front runners are currently tied. Voting to decide our next segment will remain open through Friday October 31st (Happy Halloween!) at 11:59 PM. At that time the show with the most votes will be our new segment set to begin next Wednesday November 5th.

Click discuss on the TokuNation Forums at the bottom of this post to be taken to our poll thread. There you’ll be able to choose from the 5 following options!

  • Power Rangers In Space
  • Power Rangers Zeo
  • Power Rangers Time Force
  • Power Rangers Jungle Fury
  • Power Rangers Lost Galaxy

Obviously with no new show chosen as of today there is not a new Let’s Watch Discussion to be posted. But perhaps use this time to catch up on those last couple of Den-O movies we had at the end, or get your regular weekly toku fix of Ressha Sentai ToQger & Kamen Rider Drive!

Kamen Rider Drive Type Wild 01

Revealed over the weekend today brings us some new in depth scans of Kamen Rider Drive’s upcoming second form, Type Wild!

A primarily black form, Type Wild swaps the the Tire Koukan gimmick out to it’s right shoulder. 3 new Tires will also be introduced along with Wild; Wrecking Hooker, Mad Doctor, & Rumble Dump! These new scans give us a taste of what each new tire looks like and a better look at the slick black police deco that Type Wild sports.

A handful of additional movie scans from the Gaim X Drive Movie War Full Throttle are also included showing off Kamen Riders Lupin, and Proto-Drive.

SHF Baron Lemon Energy Arms Official

Bad news for those of you collecting the S.H. Figuarts line of characters for the popular Kamen Rider Gaim series. Normally, exclusives from these type of events show up as Tamashii Web Exclusives a month or two after said event is over. But it would appear that this time almost all the exclusives from the show will be available only as Lucky Draw items – basically super rare items.

The S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Baron Lemon Energy Arms figure is one of the said exclusives from this month’s Tamashii Nations Event that will be available only as a Lucky Draw item after the event. This means that unless you have purchased a pre-order from a few hobby shops attending the event, or have someone attending the event, you will be stuck looking on the secondary market for this item. It’s almost a guarantee that Mandarake will have the item pop up from time to time over the next few months, but the availability is not guaranteed in the slightest.

Best of luck to all those looking to complete this line with this new revelation.

PMC Power Morphicon Ranger Key Set 0401

That time of year has rolled around once again! It’s the second annual Titanium Ranger Day! October 28th 2013 started it all when our good friend Fury Diamond of Rangercrew got together with Bandai Cards to help promote the Titanium Ranger with the official reveal of his Power Rangers ACG Card and a live chat with his actor Rhett Fisher! 

What began as a simple day of appreciation for the character has grown to be much more than that. Not only did Titanium Ranger make his way into the ACG with his own card, but he was 1 of the final 5 rangers selected in the Morphin Madness competition,  he was recently featured in an exclusive Power Morphicon 2014 Ranger Key Pack, had a 5″ Super Megaforce Legendary Ranger figure produced of him, AND made it into the finale of Power Ranger Super Megaforce with the returning Legendary Rangers!

As the first ranger ever to be solely featured in Power Rangers (Lightspeed Rescue) with no sentai counterpart for his basis, Titanium Ranger is one of the most unique creations in the entire Power Rangers franchise. Appreciation for the Titanium Ranger & the actor who portrayed him, Rhett Fisher, has been on the rise for years now and it can’t be any coincidence that the character has gotten so much love this year alone at the height of the Power Rangers recent 25th anniversary. And we here at TokuNation are proud to celebrate another Titanium Ranger Day!

ToQGer VS Kyoryuger

The team-up train keeps right on rolling!

Toei has officially confirmed their newest Super Sentai team-up: Ressha Sentai ToQGer VS Kyoryuger THE MOVIE!

The special will be released in theaters on January 17, 2015! No other details are known at this time, so stay tuned to TokuNation as we keep you up to date!

Kamen Rider Drive Gaim

Some new information has surfaced online & given us more insight about the enemies of Kamen Rider Drive X Kamen Rider Gaim Movie War FULL THROTTLE!

The first villain was seen earlier this week- Kamen Rider Lupin! He is described as a world-class thief out to steal the name Kamen Rider.

A second enemy creature was revealed through recent scans- an artificial lifeform known as Megahex. This monster is seen fighting off Gaim in Kiwami Arms. The accompanying text confirms this monster will attack the alien planet last seen in Kamen Rider Gaim & force Kouta to return to Earth. Megahex is also the source of our third and final “new” villain. Most surprising (and the largest spoiler to date; which we will keep hidden out of respect for other fans who wish to go in cold)

Spoiler:

Professor Ryoma Sengoku has returned! Armed with a repaired Driver and the new E.L.S. HEX Energy LockSeed, he transforms into Kamen Rider Duke- DragonFruit Arms!

Movie War FULL THROTTLE premieres in theaters December 13 2014! Stay tuned to TokuNation as we keep you up to date on all Movie news!

Kamen Rider Drive Type Wild Scan 1

The latest round of magazine scans demonstrates Kamen Rider Drive’s second form- Type Wild!

Drive uses the Shift Wild Shift Car to unlock this upgraded suit. In addition, a new wave of Shift Cars will appear to fight with Type Wild- Hooking Wrecker, Rumble Dump and Mad Doctor!

But Drive’s not the only one receiving upgrades! The mysterious Machine Chaser will obtain new Core Powers based on fallen Roidmude. In particular, these scans demonstrate Chaser Bat, Chaser Cobra and Chaser Spider!

 

Definitely looks like some interesting adventures are coming down the road for Kamen Rider Drive!

TK 06 Machine Chaser

Though this fledgling line is still in it’s early stages we’ve just gotten our a peak at the first (and currently only) villain in the line. Tire Koukan TK-06 will be none other than Machine Chaser!

Machine Chaser looks to have much of the fantastic asymmetrical detailing of his on screen counterpart and  includes his henshin device the Break Gunner. It’s currently unknown if this figure can actually use the Tire Koukan gimmick and accept tires for weapons. Either way, TK-06 Machine Chaser will be released in December for 3456 yen.
