I swear, this happened with Kyouryuuger. I didn't understand got get the first few episodes -- so I ignored the series. Later that year, I give it another chance, and suddenly Its the Best Super Sentai EVER!!!
Well, ToQger has a lot to do to reach the lofty height of Kyouryuuger, but I picked up where I left off (episode 3), and it suddenly all clicked for me. The plot suddenly became engaging - the characters understandable -- I don't know what it was about that particular episode, but everything about it suddenly "worked" for me.
I know a lot of fans might not have liked ToQger as much as previous seasons. Its understandable; seeing as I was skipping it myself. Yet there's something really charming and cute about the series -- the use of Imagination, Trains, and their fight against the Shadow Line are more engaging that the first two episodes lead me to believe. So I'm giving the series another chance!
The end of the Sentai series, sometimes, is advantageous as well -- as there are sales for the products, as the new Sentai series takes priority. I wanted to point some of these items out:
ToQ-Oh -- the main Giant Robot of the series, is selling for $52 on Amazon! I know the robots get a bit "complicated" as ToQger goes on, adding more and more piles of trains to the assortment; but their original 5 Train Set Robot really stood out on its own.
Henshin Bracelet - or Transformation/Changing Bracelet, is only $19 right now! This Bracelet works in conjunction with the Train parts from the main robot, for Transfering Colors between characters. End of the day - it makes cool sounds, and makes a cool Cosplay Piece.
Mind you -- the prices listed above WILL NOT last. I bought Kyouryuuger Robots near the end of its run, and those toys are now running $100, instead of the bargin basement prices I originally found. So if you can afford it, its a good idea to jump on these products now, rather than later.
Also - please tell me if you might consider giving ToQger another chance? What is your opinion of the series?
This is a blog about Super Sentai. I am trying to show some of the Sentai images I've collected for myself over the years, and have a place where other people can see them all in one place.
The internet just doesn't have many pages that have good quality sentai images, and those that do are scattered and hard to find. So pleae forgive me if I have posted somebody else's image here. If your the originator of one of these images, then please put a post and I'll try and take it down.
I'll also be posting information about Super Sentai and Ranger Profiles - with info on diffrent Rangers, Villains, Allies, and their giant robots (Gattai Focus)
