The wild ride is over, Power Rangers Wild Force/Hyakuju Sentai Gaoranger month has come to an end with this final Gallery! And today we’re taking a look at a very special release, DX Gao Hutner Silver Chrome edition! This promo set was only available in mainland Asia as a part of a special giveaway. It swaps nearly all plastic colors for silver chrome aside from some key points which feature flat grey plastic instead. These releases were not packaged in a complete boxed set like normal Gao Hunter but were instead released only in individual boxes.
It should be noted that while released in mainland Asia in Gaoranger packaging this set is actually based on the Korean release of the figure. And Korean Gaoranger DX’s are actually made from an entirely separate 2nd production run made specifically for release in that region. As a result diecast parts were removed in most cases and the plastics were of a significantly lower quality. However this set still features diecast shoulders. And it also has nylon strands under Gaolligator’s front legs that are present in the US release which secure them if they come off their hinges. Making this set is a bit of a frankenstein’s monster. As may be evident in the photos, reflective chrome is hard to photograph properly :p
So thanks so much for sticking with us throughout this long month of tributes and photos! Next month we close the year with Power Rangers Megaforce & Super Megaforce! To celebrate we’re going to be bringing you complete galleries of the entire DX line from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger!
