“Now…count up your crimes!” 

The fan favrioute Kamen Rider Joker returns to Medicom’s high end RAH DX line with figure that utilizes the new body from Cyclone Joker 2.0!

RAH DX Kamen Rider Joker 2.0 like all recent RAH DX releases will only be avalaible online via Medicom’s Premium Club site even more bad news is that the figure is quite expensive compared to a Figuarts, retailing for 22,680 yen before middle man fees and shipping.

But on the positive side, the figure will be going up for pre order October 24th and won’t see release till May 2015, offering plenty of time to save.

Dino Charge logo

TokuNation forum member Raz has uncovered some interesting new Power Rangers Dino Charge items in Toys R Us’ computer system . Please be aware all details are unconfirmed at the time of this writing. Official releases may vary from our early speculations.

 

The items of particular interest in these new Dino Charge toy listings include-

2 new Basic Gear Items:

42039 Gold Ptera Morpher 
42040 Gold Ptera Saber 

One new Megazord:

32097 Ptera Charge Megazord 

Another wave of 5-inch action figures:

42209 Gold Ranger
42210 Graphite Ranger
42211 Armor On Red Ranger 
42212 Armor On Blue Ranger
42213 Armor On Pink Ranger
42214 Armor On Green Ranger
42215 Armor On Black Ranger
42216 Sledge 
42217 Ptera Charge Megazord

The Gear &  new Megazord likely belong to the Dino Charge Gold Ranger. The Graphite Ranger could be the American name for supporting character KyoryuGrey. The action figure Sledge is likely an enemy character (perhaps a member of the Deboss Legion).

In addition, listings apparently confirm that the Dino Charge toyline will contain 60  Dino Chargers (which seems to be the American name for Kyoryugers’ Zyudenchi). Which Chargers will make the transfer to this new series? Only time will tell!

Zyuranger Shout Factory DVD Cover

TokuNation broke the news to the world back in July that Shout! Factory would be bringing Zyuranger to the US in the form of a complete Series DVD set. Now only a few short months later we have the first look at what that set will be like!

Revealed via Brian Ward’s twitter account (@BWard028) is our first look at the Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger DVD cover! Sporting a “before Power Rangers there was…” line across the top it looks like this set should appeal to both Power Rangers and Sentai fans alike. What are your thoughts on this image? How do you think this DVD set will sell  and what will it mean for possible future sets? Join the discussion after the jump by clicking “Discuss on the TokuNation Forums” at the bottom of this post.

SHMonsterarts Godzilla 2000 Special Color Official 001

Flying under the radar among the other recently revealed Tamashii nations products this week is the upcoming S.H. Monsterarts Godzilla 2000 Special Color Version!

It looks like the very popular Godzilla 2000 mold will be getting a re-release in a new color scheme designed by Yuji Sakai.  A prolific concept artist and S.H. Monsterarts Sculptor, Mr Sakai is also the original artist behind the design of Godzilla 2000!  It appears that the new paint job is the only special treatment given to this figure as no additional accessories will be included, just as with the original release this is bare bones.

Godzilla 2000 Special Color will be released as a Tamashii Web Exclusive in April 2015 for 7776 yen.

SHFiguarts Kikaider 01 Official 01

Revealed earlier this week among several other new figures, the Tamashii Web Shop has updated with official images and pricing info for the upcoming S.H. Figuarts Kikaider 01!

The younger brother of Jiro the original Kikaider, Kikaider 01 (Ichiro) was likewise the star of his own live action series in the 70′s. Itself a follow up to the original Kikaider show. At the rate Bandai continues to pump out new Kikaider Figuarts we may run the gamut  of the two classic live action shows pretty quickly. Perhaps some figures based on the Reboot film or the anime & OVA’s are down the road?

S.H. Figuarts Kikaider 01, much like his brother, only includes 3 extra sets of hands for accessories. But this classic addition to your collection will be made available as a Tamashii Web Exclusive in April 2015 for 5184 yen.

SHFiguarts Blade Broken Version Official 007

Revealed earlier this week among several other new figures, the Tamashii Web Shop has updated with official images and pricing info for the upcoming S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Blade Broken Head Version!

This battle damaged reissue of Kamen Rider Blade seems to includes most of what the original release did aside from the Lightning Blast effect parts and the piece of rubble to place the Rouzer  in. It swaps the standard head for the “broken” version so there’s no undamaged helmet included either. What it does have are 3 & 1/2 sets of additional hands, the Blay Rouzer holster, the Blay Rouzer itself, the fanned out Rouze Card part, and the same Rouze card sticker set included with the first release.

S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Blade Broken Version will be released as a Tamashii Web Exclusive in April 2015 for 4320 yen.

Two of the three mystery lock seeds in the big Premium Bandai Showa Rider Lock Seed set have been revealed through magazine scans.

We’ve known about Shadow Moon now for some time, but this new one might come as an unexpected shock to a few folks with a Seed to represent Shocker’s Great Leader. What’s more, the magazine scan previews the inside artwork for both Lock Seeds.

 

 

Kamen Rider Lupin 2

New images have come online showing us the enemy character from the upcoming crossover film Kamen Rider Drive X Kamen Rider Gaim: Movie Taisen 2015 FULL THROTTLE!

This new villain is known as Kamen Rider Lupin. His story is mostly unknown at this point but he uses a transformation weapon similar to Machin Chaser.

 

Movie Taisen Full Throttle premieres in theaters December 13 2014! Stay tuned to TokuNation until then as we keep you up to date on all crossover news!

LWW Onigashima Warship

It’s time at last for the finale of Kamen Rider Den-O with Let’s Watch Wednesdays! It’s been a long journey but we’re finally here. Admittedly this week is more optional than anything, the story proper was wrapped up with Final Countdown, but a few new mysteries abound…

Picking up just after a brief crossover in Kamen Rider Decade, Onigashima Warship sees a small army of Oni transported from the past to the year 1980. Here they seek the key to the Onigashima Warship, literally their last trump card. With the young boy Yu and a little help from Kamen Rider Decade, can the Den-Liner crew repair the past and fix the de-aged Ryutaro or return the vanished Yuuto? A passing through rider or two, plenty of body snatching, and form changes abound!

And the finale, the Cho Den-O Trilogy! The first film, Episode Red, features Kamen Rider Zeronos and Airi Nogami sorting out the sordid history (and future) of their love. Episode Blue features New Den-O & Teddy. Friends from the future, can these inheritors of the Den-O legacy survive the past and return to their future? And finally Episode Yellow focuses on, Kamen Rider Diend?! That’s right, the thieving hero/crook from Kamen Rider Decade has come to (sort of) right the wrongs of his own past. But being pursued by the new Kamen Rider G Den-O brings it’s own problems. With time travelling hijinks, more than a few double crosses, precious mementos, and at least one insane artificial Imagin, is it any wonder Diend is here? Have no fear, this time Diend steals the show with his Complete Form!
