power rangers 22

It was twenty-two years ago today that an evil space sorceress by the name of Rita Repulsa escaped her space-garbage-can prison with the goal of conquering the Earth. An intergalactic being known as Zordon, along with his robotic assistant Alpha 5, selected five teenagers with attitude to take upon the ancient power of the dinosaurs to become the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. For twenty-two years different teenagers (and adults) have taken the mantle of power to save the city, to save the Earth, to save the galaxy – even to save time itself!

We’ve had evil villains from space, space pirates, an entire United Alliance of Evil, a Machine Empire, evil demons from a place that was obviously Hell but you can’t say that on a kids program, space insects (a couple of times!), a computer virus that conquered the world, a scientist obsessed with dinosaurs, an evil ninja, space cats (…yup), an entire Armada, and an evil bounty hunter. We’ve had mentors that rhymed, sang, once drove race cars but became paleontologists because television, a ninja hamster, created a robot son because that’s not creepy, an introvert genius, a samurai mentor, a head on a wall, a dog, and now a creepy little alien that caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. We’ve had a kid Power Ranger, we’ve had a Power Ranger die (but come back to life because kids television), we’ve had a tragic story of a knight who lost his son and the grief kept him alive, we’ve had a mother/father/son team of Power Rangers, and we’ve seen a team go SUPER MEGA (you knew that was coming).

We’ve had the original creations of the Titanium Ranger and the Spirit Rangers and we’ve had BLITZ NEW POWERS!. We’ve had great music selections and we’ve had some questionable theme songs. But in the end, we’ve had 22 years of heroes and that’s a feat that is pretty dang impressive on to itself.

Happy Birthday, Power Rangers. Please enjoy this montage of opening sequences from the last 22 years brought to you by the folks of RangerCrew.

SH Figuarts Winspector Fire Official 005

Here we go! Today the casting sides for the upcoming Power Rangers 2017 Movie were released online. What is a casting side you ask? Well, it’s basically a bunch of lines for actors to read off or to get in to character while auditioning for the role of the character they’re trying out for. Casting sides are not always a guarantee – the casting sides for Power Rangers Megaforce were different than what we ended up with.

Now obviously – there’s potential major spoilers. Below is a screen shot of the casting side with the details blurred out. These casting sides potentially give us the first details on the story (how similar is it to the “leaked” story from a month or so ago?), as well as more details on some of the character bios that were leaked not too long ago (Kimberly being absent from school for six months is explained, as well as part of Billy’s reasoning for being such an introvert). If you’d like to see the casting sides, you may do so courtesy of our friends at MorphinLegacy.com, our friends at RangerBoard.com, as well as the folks of RangerCrew.com.

To see a scan of one of the castings ides (albeit edited to avoid spoilers), simply click READ MORE!

Kamen Rider Ghost September Scan 3

A plethora of new images for the upcoming Kamen Rider Ghost have surfaced online, giving us several new details about this exciting series!

*First and foremost, we get a good look at Ghosts’ henshin sequence! It seems that Ghosts’ base body is essentially a blank slate and the alternate clothing mantles are ACTUAL ghosts that this Rider will wear during fights.

*Upon receiving his powers, Ghost gets a sidekick- a miniature white phantasm known as Yurusen that will teach Takeru about his new abilities.

*We also have some clear images of Kamen Rider Ghosts’ vehicle- the Machine Ghostriker!

*Last but certainly not least, we have our first good look at the Ganma monsters! It seems these creatures can take on mantles similar to Ghost and evolve beyond a basic foot-soldier configuration to a new stage known as Ganma Commando. The first three Commandos revealed in these scans are the Katana Ganma, the Yari Ganma and the Denki Ganma.

Kamen Rider Ghost premieres on October 4 2015! Stay tuned to Tokunation as we keep you up to date on all ghostly news!

SH Figuarts Ride Macher 009

Searching, destroying, all done at mach speed! And this time Kamen Rider Mach has a little bit of help, today we’re taking a look at the recently released S.H. Figuarts Ride Macher! 

The Ride Macher is both the companion piece and sort of the successor to the Ride Chaser and these brother machines share a base in the Honda NM4. At their core the figures are quite similar as well. The Ride Macher trades out the Chaser’s dark theme for a bright futuristic look that definitely syncs up with Mach’s own racing motif. The Ride Macher also includes many more accessories than the Ride Chaser in the form of 2 new Advent Signals and their accompanying Signal Bikes; Tomarle & Kaksarn! As with the Chaser a 1st run bonus accessory is also included, the Funky Spike Effect! Sadly of course this bike can not form the mighty Ride Crosser with the Ride Chaser, unlike the DX’s they simply aren’t capable of it.

We’ve attached a selection of images to this post but check out our full discussion thread by clicking “Discuss on the TokuNation Forums” in order to see the full 40+ images of the S.H. Figuarts Ride Macher & the Funky Spike Effect Bonus!
