Liking it...

What I love about this gattai is the galleon and the other vehicles. It feels like a "proper" vehicle combiner which I dig from Hikari Sentai Maskman. Who would've guessed a galleon? I have yet to purchase this brick (as you lovingly call it) but here I am defending it :)

On the flipside, if it does feel like a children's toy, that's because IT IS. But unlike Gosei, it won't leave you feeling cheated due to the ridiculous header gimmick. In my opinion, we've been too focused on the adult collectors' wishes and wants on toys, we are forgetting the primary audience of the show: children. If you'd like more collector-centric toys, then Bandai's SOC and SRC line is there. In fact, they are coming out with an SRC version of this one. Non-combiner though.

Ooh, a SRC Gokai-Oh is in the works? First I've heard of it. Well, if the SRC Shinken-Oh is anything, I might go for it as well!

i don't know if you've seen the show already, but wait till you see what they've done with Gaolion ;) that's some very clever engineering there

Oh, I know exactly what they did with GaoLion. Cleaver engineering, perhaps, but I don't like how it turned out. I'm debating whether to get GaoLion or not. Unless it gets used for a later combo- beyond Shinken Gokai-Oh- I may skip it altogether.

Yes and no

yes, I have seen the first episode of the show, but alas, no for the rest of the episodes. will have to wait for torrent then.

as for gaolion, yes, he does combine with gokaioh. either as a weapons upgrade or as a lower torso component. wait for dekared's car...

GrownUpsInSpandex gets their fansubs out far faster that TV-Nihon does, but without the flash. And the big reason I've become attached to them is you can either use torrents or download directly, which TVN doesn't!

errors

Doubt you caught this, but this (good) review (of a toy I don't really approve of & doubt I will ever), you added a "T" to the leader of Zangyack's name, which should be "Oiles Gil" (last I remembered), you left out an "O" in "Don Dogoier" & the Galleon Cannons are a completely different weapon on the Gokai Galleon, the weapon you kept referring to as the Galleon Cannon is actually called the "Gokai Ho" (no translation due to being written in katakana, similar to "Gokaiger")

Hey Eva, I haven't seen it on

Hey Eva, I haven't seen it on the pics, so I'm telling this just in case.

Japanese fans discovered the chest panel that flips open for combination is actually two-part and the larger chunk can be detached to eliminate the huge "last walk" pad from the super mode by pulling it out from a clip system built in there.

There's a specific reason why I didn't mention that here... Don't worry, I'm already aware of it. ;)

Nice review

It's been years since I've been fired up by a Super Sentai series and although the art design of this particular toy is child like I think I'm still going to have to get this one. In my humble opinion this one deserves to have a "Classic DX" style Die-cast Godaikin collector version.

This was an excellent review Eva!

Thanks!

Thank you, Mod!

Thank you, Mod! ^^

Supposedly a SRC Gokai-Oh is in the works, but I just heard of that today as well.

Ehh, I don't know where you could put die-cast in this toy! It would probably double the already huge price of it, and they'd definitely have to re-engineer the toy to get die-cast in there.

I know, right!?

That's a gold mine I wouldn't mind sinking some cash into- an[other] SOC Super Sentai robo. (I don't like the Battle Fever Robo much, that's why i don't have one.)

I agree, Battle Fever Robo

I agree, Battle Fever Robo and Leopardon weren't the best choices to kick off Super Sentai representation in SOC.

A correctly scaled Sun Vulcan, Dynaman or Goggle V would of sold much better than two non Gattai robots from the 1970's.I believe they wanted to release them in order and when the first two didn't do to well they stopped it.

Eventually they are going to have to do Super Sentai robots sooner or later!

In a perfect world, we'd get a Great Five, since the original is ridiculously hard to find (mostly because it's awesome).

I'm sticking with the candy toys for Gokaiger like I did with Shinkenger. (I skipped Goseiger, because not even articulation can save those designs.) The big plus with the candy toys is you can finagle more add-ons at once; for instance, there's supposedly a way to do GaoGokaiOh with the candy toy that allows you to attach the Trailer and Sub.

Are you planning on getting any of the Joint Gattai robots?

I wonder if those can attach to this guy?

The Joint Gattai sets? Hells

The Joint Gattai sets? Hells no! I've got the DX-sized sets, and I don't like parts-formers.

The Joint Gattai sets aren't very big, and I've heard nothing about them being compatible with DX Gokaiger sets.

Haha, I knew...

I knew you would slam this toy. PLEX designs suck a lot lately. Now I just need an SRC Sun Vulcan Robo to remove that bad taste in my mouth.

Ehh, you can have your Sun Vulcan Robo; I don't care much for that one.

I could understand why the Gokai-Oh was simplified, but I also thought they could have done a bit more with the transformations while preserving the hollow interior(s).

Ohh, wow...

Ohh, wow... Wow-wow-wow-wow-wow. O_o I've never seen anything like that before.

If I didn't already have my own channel, and clear opinions and reinforcement from others who continually stroke my ego (such as it is), I might be a little crushed.

I would love to interact with this guy for a little bit someday.

Hey buddy,whoever you are. Guess what? Ima do the you greatest service you could possibly imagine. In my next vlog, I'm going to promote your page so that other haters can congregate and swap teh hate, and continue to do all of this behind my back instead of to my face. I am truly pleased, though, that you promoted my video and my channel, so it's only fair I return the favor.

/sarcasm

Any other CDXer have an opinion of this?

Oh, and I don't Tweet.

But .... Twittering DOESN'T require a ton of energy. And that is literally half of what he's doing. The other half is just watching EVA's vids.

Lost interest in the guy's

Lost interest in the guy's opinion at about...oh...the second post? Yes, your videos could be better. Anyone's videos can always have room for improvement. But the worst? If the person really hates your video reviews so much, then why does he/she watch the whole video in the first place? But I guess the person has nothing better to do than get his/her hate on... And it's also funny how the person hates your reviews yet feels the need to hide behind anonymity.

Seriously, this is an example of the people whom you should pay no attention to, Eva. There is nothing useful being said that could be used to make future videos better.

But he DOES have a reason.

But he DOES have a reason. That being he doesn't like EVA's reviews because he think they're not good. Sorry somebody having a different opinion than you makes you upset.

And if it's pissing you off, I don't think it counts as a "failure"

And before somebody asks why I'm defending this guy( besides actually finding him kind of funny), somebody has to play the Devil's advocate

NEWSFLASH: Second wave of Gokai machines revealed! XD

Thought this would interest you guys. Found this one in a blog:

"Now, it's time to present to you Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger's second robo and the sixth ranger's mecha, GokaiSilver's Gojyujin. And along with this is our first rumored actor for GokaiSilver.

GokaiSilver's Robo will be called "Goujyujin" (Strong Beast God). It has a 3 step transformation ― transforms from a Dinosaur, to a Drill Battleship, and then into a robo. The robo's right arm is a drill (in a nod to Abaranger's AbarenOh). The left arm is the Tyranno's head (a fist is inside the head). The legs are the Tyranno legs. It is rumored that only arm swapping might be an option, so probably no gattai with GokaiOh.

In addition, the next GokaiMachine is from Hurricaneger and will be called "FuuRaiMaru." Modeled after Hurricanger's FuuRaiMaru (except it is totally green in color) stores in GokaiOh by dividing into 5. Unfolding gimmick in both GokaiOh arms. Out of the feet appear 3-sided Shuriken. Out of the chest comes a Senpuujin head/helmet. Both Shurikens can unite into a bigger weapon (like Tenkuujin's weapon) which GokaiOh can hold."

The blog ALSO reveals spoilers for upcoming episodes and pics of the new gokai machines.
