Toy Week 2 Continues

Those of you that were fearing Toy Week 2 to be over, there will be much more this following week. I have summer break now so I will be doing some more posts. I'm the boss and I make up the rules, who cares if a 'special week' lasts two weeks? Leave any requests (for Toy Week only please) on this post.

-Lavender Ranger

Gokaiger Episode 17


The Gokaiger use the Goseiger powers

Gai introduces himself to the team but they ignore him.

Yellow as MegaSilver, Green as Dragonranger, Red as TimeFire, Pink as AbareKiller and Blue as MagiShine



Gai's daydream

Gai pops out of nowhere with the GokaiSilver powers. I don't have pics of his henshin but it reminds me of Titanium Ranger and Quantum Ranger as it comes up from up high.



I like how Silver's Final Wave is brutal but maybe will be changed if and when they do it as Power Rangers. Also, I was a little disappointed that his Final Wave doesn't have a special name or even called 'Silver Final Wave.'

Episode 18 (June 26):
Next week the 5 Gokaiger transform into Silver Sixth Rangers. From how GaoSilver is holding his sold, I am to guess that is GokaiGreen and how BoukenSilver is in the center I am to believe it is GokaiRed. GokaiPink as Go-On Silver because of height.Suit Actress Mizuho Nogawa (Gokai Pink) played Go-On Silver originally. And by elimination, I am led to believe that MegaSilver is Yellow and Gosei Knight is Gokai Blue.

Gamespot reviews Power Rangers Samurai Game and Comic-Con



http://e3.gamespot.com/story/6318190/e3-2011-power-rangers-samurai-preview-hands-on

"Right now, Samurai is shaping up to be respectable beat-'em-up for fans of the series. The simple combat certainly won't lure in veteran players, but the smart use of the license will keep people who love the show invested."

Also the Comic-Con contest, TV Guide.com says never-before-seen footage will be seen. Maybe Episode 1 and 2?:

Toy Week 2: My Collection Part 1


In honor of Toy Week 2, I decided to show a bit of my Power Ranger collection, I got some Super Sentai and Kamen Rider stuff. This is half of the collection, I got some more I might show later. I might be missing some bit and pieces that are in storage. Most of these are pretty dusty. I miswrote Gun mode as Sword Mode on the subtitle.

Gokaiger Wii Game

I know about the game, I've known for months and lots of people have mentioned it. Everyone is excited about it. It will be released soon for the Wii, "Super Sentai Battle: Ranger Cross" is coming this Fall. I haven't mentioned it because I haven't had good enough pictures and the graphics looks a lot like Dice-O. My friend has a Japanese Wii, if I have the money. I might buy it if he'll let me play it on his Wii. It has five teams: Gokaiger, Goseiger, Shinkenger, Go-Onger and Goranger.
