"starting with Shinkenger, probably in 2012."

They need two years to de-Japanify it.

Maybe I just don't know

Maybe I just don't know enough about Power Rangers,but what's the deal with those figures that have like the black chest,the red helmet,and the clear arms? can you switch around everybody's limbs?

I'm glad to hear that Shinkenger's gonna possibly come over here though, I enjoyed the show a lot.

Either it's me, or you can

Either it's me, or you can easily tell just from lloking at these things the quality of the plastic is cheap... Nice they are using stickers, something Hasbro abandoned years ago, but their quality is another thing...

Most of these are prototypes

Most of these are prototypes - the plastic quality is generally good.

Glad to see a Titanus

Glad to see a Titanus release, of any kind. The original's integration with the Megazords wasn't the best, anyway, so I'm not too upset it doesn't combine. Best news of all is that Power Rangers isn't dead, but will continue in 2012. Thanks for the coverage!

A tattoo? Hey that's a pretty cool idea.

It worked for Kwai-Chang Caine so go for it Grasshopper! :D

I'm trying to figure out how

I'm trying to figure out how they can stretch the series long enough to not release the Dragonzord for a whole'nother year... I don't remember the show being *that* long...

Well, wasn't

Well, wasn't Dragonzord/Titanus part of Dairanger, not Zyuranger? I think they merged the series...no?

According to Wikipedia,

According to Wikipedia, Dairanger is where the White Ranger comes from, so the mecha in that one would be the Thunderzords and White Tigerzord. Titanius and the Dragonzord mate up with the original Megazord, so wouldn't they have to be from Zyu?

Zord origins

Dino megazord, titanus, and the dragon zord are from zyuranger.
The thunder zords, tiger zord, and tor are from Dairanger.
It's the reason we never got the Mega-Thunder-Dragon-Zord.

Darn, I honestly hoped that Shinkenger would be spared the Bandai America treatment.
I guess I have two years (three at the rate things take to reach the UK) to develop some sort of selective vision type technique and then just filter it out from my life.

Great coverage guys! But you

Great coverage guys! But you should hear the "girls" on Rangerboard screeching about your Shinkenger news! Its pretty funny and pathetic at the same time! They also can't believe Titanus won't accommodate the Megazord! Oh, Lord you give them eyes, but they cannot see!

make sure they carefully

make sure they carefully read "it does not appear to integrate with the previously released megazord."

It just looks like it wont fit. Doesn't mean its a fact. It's still a prototype on display.

Watching the video, I'm glad

Watching the video, I'm glad to hear that the Dragonzord will combine with the Megazord. I hope it does not only the full combo but the one that use three of the other Zords to make Dragonzord in fighting mode.

I was ready to buy the new

I was ready to buy the new megazord, but looking at it on the shelf in person brought my toy boner to a noodly torpor. They seemed to have elongated his design so he's a little taller and sleeker, which is not what I like in robot toys. The shade of grey that they use for recesses is an eyesore, and the plastic is shoddy-looking. People buying this should expect a cheap product obviously made with the goal of saving as much money as possible.

Don't forget about it's ability to limb-swap with those awesome Ranger-scaled motorcycles!

Titanus could have been a

Titanus could have been a glorious rebirth. They could have improved him, but instead they decided to sump out this joke. His plastic looks cheap. Like a big fast food toy. This is ball cider out of a pusbottle.

Again, BA's ability to take

Again, BA's ability to take an awesome toy and magically make it crap never ceases to amaze me...

The only thing here that I might get is the lightsaber Dragon Dagger... which is also cheap. Why? Why, because it becomes a lightsaber, of course!

You could make several drinking games based on how many of these new toys will NOT be appearing in the show.
