 Info from Dukemon22 of TokuInsider:

 TokkyuBlaster- The Tokkyuger's common arms. Can switch from Uchimasu Mode (Firing Mode) to Kirimasu Mode (Cutting Mode). Comes with a TokkyuResshar, the "ScopeRessha" which combines with TokkyuOh, switching out for the left hand.

TokkyuBuckle- The Tokkyuger's belt buckle. Holds the "Rainbow Pass". Comes with with a TokkyuResshar, the  (Name unreadable), which forms the Signal Shield for TokkyuOh.

Renketsu Bazooka- A team cannon formed from the Tokkyuger's personal weapons. Ichigo has the Rail Slasher, Nigo has the Form Trigger, Sango has the Shingo Hammer, Yongo has the Tunnel Axe, and Gogo has the Tekkyou Claw. Comes with the TokkyuResshar, EnergyResshar, which can combine with TokkyuOh by replacing the left arm.

 Ressha Gattai Series 1-5 Ressha Gattai DX TokkyuOh:
 Combined from the core 5 TokkyuResshar - RedResshar, BlueResshar, YellowResshar, GreenResshar, PinkResshar.

TokkyuSango - YellowReshaar
TokkyuYongo - GreenReshaar
TokkyuGogo - PinkReshaar

  Transfer Change series TokkyuIchigo, Nigo and Sango.

Action figures of Ichigo, Nigo and Sango. It seems the Tokkyuger have the ability to "transfer", which changes the numbers on their suits and allow them to use the other rangers' powers. (Note Red holding Blue's weapon, and so on and so forth.) Under that are the usual bonus toys- SH figure series, punching bag and watch.
 Ressha Gattai Series TankResshar:
Combines with TokkyuOh to make TokkyuOh Tank. (Replaces both hands)

Ressha Gattai Series CarCarrierResshar:

Combines with TokkyuOh to form TokkyuOh CarCarrier (Replaces the right hand)


The Tokkyuger's changer. Each ranger loads a different TokkyRessha into the changer to transform. The TokkyuRessha in turn double as their mecha and our collection gimmick this year. A set of both TokkyuOh and the Changer will be released as well.

Lavender Ranger's Thoughts:
I usually don't editorialize like this but I have to say something. I hated when people who hate on the suits at first glance (like GoGoV, Gekiranger or Go-Onger on the top of my head) but I am not fond of the suits. I feel like we've seen this before. The helmets are fine but the suits themselves are far too simple for me. They look like parody Zentai morphsuits. They remind me of grunts. If the glove and boot cuffs were more complex or if the suit itself had mix of colors like black, white an dsilver, it wouldn't bother me as much.

Hello LavenderRanger,

So, this new sentai is based in Trains and Rails right?

But they need to redesign the Megazord. First time I don't like a Megazord, it is too square shaped and doesn't have any stylish form as others.

Is Yellow supposed to be male?

The suits look simple because there will undoubtably be a more intricate powered up form (which will mean kids need to buy two sets of toys) ala Genkiranger.

So as a first level suit, it's pretty good. Simple and clean.

I am sooooo hoping they are doing like Dynaman...throwing out "test" suits and then changing them later on...

hey LavenderRanger,

My comments on the toys and promo pics of the new rangers.

I'm so sorry, but I am definitely not liking this new team's helmet design and the lacking of motif within the suits.

Of course, they are some mix and match with their toys like Go-ongers' five weapons-in-one blaster and looking at the mecha of the year, the head reminds me a lot of DekaRobo, and that train body of it looks even more ridiculous. Thinking back GoGo V (Lightspeed Rescue) has a better train theme mecha than this.

According to this picture:

The Tokkyuger can change color (depending on the weapon they want to use). The only thing that does not change is the number (hence their name)

Definitely I dont like the suits, looks like were drawn by a kid

Lets wait to see them in action...

I believe yellow is female. So it's nice to have two females again on the main team.

It's way too early to tell how this will all pan out.

GoGoV had some really bland suits and mecha that looked boring but the show (Lightspeed Rescue at least) was able to bring it to life.

Howdy, Lavender Ranger! I must also say that I do not at all like the designs for this series. I don't like the costumes, the helmets need a total redesign, and the outfits are WAY too simplistic and honestly, kind of dorky. The mecha look simplistic and boxy, and I really don't want to own them, as it stands. These designs actually bother me more than Gekiranger and Go-Onger ever did, combined! If anyone reads this who can get these suggestions to the designers/creators, I'd suggest more wheels, pistons, and rails on the arms and legs. The possibility for each ranger to better embody their trains' style is wide open here. Take some hints from steampunk fashion for Red Ranger, some designs from Ultimate Iron Man's catalogue for Blue and Green, and perhaps some hints of modern cyberpunk style for Yellow and Pink. There's nothing but room for improvement in the mecha designs here, too. Draw some inspiration from the Generation 1 Transformers "Astro-Train." Gen 1 also saw the release of the Transformers Train Set (from Tyco). I loved that design, owned it, and played with it until it utterly broke! This Sentai design is utterly terrible as it stands. The rest of the kitsch (morphers, belts, weapons, etc.) is pretty neat, but the costume and mecha plans have got to go!
