Back in the summer of 2011 I approached our network owner, Tony_Bacala, with an idea for a new website to add to the network. Having been a fan of Power Rangers all my life while watching Gokaiger weekly, along with getting in to Kamen Rider through Kamen Rider Fourze, I wanted to take this enjoyment and passion and share it with other people in a broader scope. Tony_Bacala agreed to give me a shot, having been an Administrator at TFW2005 for nearly 10 years, and told me I had to find my own crew to run it.
For months I spoke with members of TFW2005.com who had an interest. I didn’t want to go pick up notables from other existing communities – I wanted to introduce fresh faces and build something from the ground up in every aspect. I did not know that the staff we would put together, the staff we have today, would be some of the greatest people and friends I would ever have. Sentai Tamashii, Den-O, Kamen Rider OOO, Paladin, ZeoRangerV, Kiryu, Uchihabro – they are some of the best and I am honored and humbled to get to do this with them every single day.
Six years. That’s a lot of San Diego Comic Cons, a lot of Toy Fairs, a lot of New York Comic Cons, and a sprinkling or two of Power Morphicons as well. 574 galleries as of today. That’s almost 100 galleries per year. Toku Toy Box – one of our holiday staples – is as popular as ever.
For 2018 we are going to go full swing with the celebration of the Power Rangers and the 25th anniversary. We have so much content planned for the year and I cannot wait to share it with you and celebrate the last 25 years of the Power Rangers franchise. And we cannot forget the Lupinranger vs. Patoranger hype, or just how exciting Kamen Rider Build is!
Thank you for making us a stop on your adventure through the world wide web. Thank you for your support, your comments, and your criticisms. Thank you to all of our members who have made this their place to discuss all things tokusatsu and more. We hope you will continue to be part of our family and we hope to continue to deliver the news, galleries, and content you expect for years to come.
