New Go-onger Images

I went back to some of my favorite Go-onger episodes and got some new screen shots. I hope you enjoy!

Go-onger: Power Ranger RPM Robot Toy Review


I just got today something I've been looking forward too for a very long time. I got the ValveMax Megazord. For all intense and purposes, I'm getting these because of Go-onger, not the RPM Americanized version, so I'm going to refer to him by his proper name "GunBir-Oh". See, at the end of last year, shortly before Christmas, Target put out the first RPM toy, High Octane Megazord (known better as "Engine-Oh"). I got that at only $20 - a great deal. Sure, they don't have the bells and whistles of the original Japanese toys - but it was still a pretty good deal.

So, next I wait for GunBir-Oh to hit stores. It wasn't until maybe August or September that I finally began to see the toy get out there. But, sadly, not in the form I wanted. They had it for sale at ToysRus, but that was at $45 for both Engine-Oh and GunBir-Oh. I don't want to buy the same toy twice. I next see the toy, sold alone, at my local Disney Store. But, MY WORD, what a complete rip off. They where asking for $40 for it. So, here I come all the way to October 26, two months shy of a full year since Engine-Oh was first released - and finally I unexpectedly find GunBir-Oh for sale at Target. This took 10 Months! But, anyway, I was happy to find it, and at only $20 it was a steal.

OK, as for the actual toy - it's probably not the same as the Japanese versions - but these are still some well crafted toys. Carrigator is great - and forms up nicely with the smaller but well detailed Birca and Gunpherd, who attached as the arms of GunBir-Oh. Pieces on Carrigator sometimes come off easily, but attached back just as easily.

On Engine-Oh, I feel I need to tell you the biggest fault with that toy, is that of BearRV. They made it so she can't have a flat surface for a head, as there is a connector on top of her, so in car mode that's a visual distraction. It goes away in Transformation, and I feel it's not that big of a deal. Also - they altered the hands on Engine-Oh. The Japanese version had open hands - and the American one has closed fists. This makes it good for holding his sword - but you quickly learn why they where opened fists when you can't entirely place the arms completely into their sockets, which might cause trouble when putting robots, like the Go-On Wings, onto the shoulders.

While the plastic is creaky, and perhaps feels like it might break someday, I'm non the less pleased with how both of these toys turned out. GunBir-Oh attaches nicely to Engine-Oh - and I was finally able to complete Engine-Oh G6.


I'd highly recommend buying both of these toys - and actually getting all 6 of the cars together is lots of fun. I'm unsure weather I'll get the Go-On Wings, or the prehistoric trains (adding everything, I have no doubt, will make this toy a much larger challenge to put together) I'll have to wait and see, or if they even come out.

Samurai Ha Oh Commercial

Here's a cool commercial for the Ushi Origami toy. I'm currently waiting on a pre-order for this toy, which I hope will ship soon. I had to bail from buying it from my regular shopping spot, Hobbylinks Japan. Instead I'm buying it from Bigbadtoystore.com. They might be charging more for the item ($150, as opposed to $130) but nothing can beat the difference between $12 shipping verses $70-Freaking dollars from Japan! Over all it's coming out to what I was expecting to pay, normal shipping wise. (Most other orders from Japan cost around $20 or such)

Well, I'm certainly gonna have to cut back on Sentai merchandise next year. I just wanted to make it this one year, and get all the incredible Shinkenger toys available.

Anyway way, here's the commercial

Gekiranger Images, Christmas Images Too!

I went back and mined a few more of my favorite Gekiranger episodes for some new images. One of them seem most appropriate with the oncoming holiday season, as Ken (GekiChopper) decides to play santa for Christmas. He even has a reindeer, played by Master Pyon.

Anyway, I hope you like the images. Enjoy!
