Pretty bad accessory combo.

Pretty bad accessory combo. I knew there was a reason I never got anything past the original 5 Origami and Ebi

Anyway, If you do ever get them I think Ebi Origami is pretty decent. While Ika is just as lame as these guys. fortunately Ebi doesn't need anybody else to be cool. Daikai-Oh Is quite a nice robot with a fairly cute gimmick. Ohh and he has one of the better combinations I've seen in a while with a base Mecha. True Samurai Gattai Daikai Shinken-Oh looks nicely powered up.

While the final combo Samuraihaoh is akin to what Engine Oh's G12 combo was, Just a mess of mecha slapped together. I'll avoid cursing though.

Great review as always.

I have all the Shinkenger

I have all the Shinkenger mechs except for Daigoyou and Kyoryu Origami (which is basically a repaint of the Shinkenmaru). The yellow tabs that come with Kabuto, Kaijiki, and Tora are never needed, though Ika Origami comes with one as well. All eleven Shinkenger mechs as Samurai Ha Oh are a cluster, but a sight to behold nonetheless.

Great review EVA!

Thanks! Oh, I'm sure the


Oh, I'm sure the Samurai Ha-Oh is quite the spectacle, but not one I'm willing to spend another +$120 on!

I figured the yellow clip-ons were to keep the Shinken-Oh's torso upright in the Samurai Busou forms, but that was when it was back-heavy from the Kabuto and Tora. But if the Ika hangs out in front, what then are the clips for???

Shinkenger Mechas

Well to me, I have ALL the Shinkenger mecha pieces even DaiGouYou and Kyoryu. The 12-piece thingy called Kyoryu Samurai Ha-Oh is awesome but the Kyoryu can't really hold itself nicely on HaOh. However, it is achieveable nonetheless.

Let me answer EVA's question on the yellow peg. The yellow pegs were released to cure an error Bandai Japan had made when producing Shinken-Oh, a very weak backbone joint. So, each of the Gattai Series pieces aside from Kajiki (YES! even Kyoryu has one) include this one little peg. The yellow peg serves 2 purposes:

1) Enforces the back so that it won't break whenever you do a Busou or Chou Samurai Gattai thing. (Kajiki is not applicable because the body of the Kajiki is enforced at the backbone, covering it and enforcing it)

2) It removes the oddity that the back of the body is empty when you do a Busou. So, that explains why even Kyoryu and Ika has them.

I would say Ha-Oh is awesome. I never really tried the mechanical feature in HaOh mode but in MogyuDaiOh and Ushi mode, I did. DaiGouYou is one piece I'd say that stands out of place. Nothing of him is applicable to the HaOh formation, unlike Kyoryu. And unlike Go-Roader from his pre-decessor, DaiGouYou is in no way performing attacks with HaOh. In the show, he normally stays in the cockpit with Genta. However, DaiGouYou has a very interesting gimmick, it speaks random phrases when you push the Disk launching button at the back and remove the Disk from the hatch. That's what I like which is being more gimmicky than GoRoader.

Re: Shinkenger mechas

Thanks for the confirmation on the yellow accessory piece.

I briefly considered getting DaiGoyou because it was compatible with the Shinken-Oh, but mostly the lantern mode killed it for me... AND it's a parts-former, which I've never been a fan of.
Yeah, the Go-Roader GT had potential that wasn't exploited, but I still like it despite the limits on sound effects.

Oh, I have no doubt that the Samurai Ha-Oh has amazing presence, and I would like to see the DX version some day (even if I don't own it). But as I stated in the video, that's just not enough to compensate for the amazing amount of parts-swapping that's involved.
The Mogyudai-Oh was just too blocky for my taste even though it had the rotating head cannon for the final combo, AND it broke the mecha trend AGAIN with the cart being towed behind it which becomes part of the robo rather than an accessory to the animal. (Those are the same reasons I didn't get the MaxOhJa from "AbaRanger".)
BTW, why would a mecha stand ON a cart instead of IN it...???
The DaiKai-Oh was just too outlandish for my tastes, even though the rotating face(s) gimmick was kinda interesting. There is just too much [kibble] sticking out of whatever mode it's in for me to tolerate.

Shinkenger =/= PR: Samurai

Bandai of America made completely different toys for their Power Rangers Samurai line than the ones from Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, They're intentionally made to be cheaper due to the recession in 2008. If you really want the Japanese versions, you'll have to buy the Kabuto Origami, Kajiki Origami, and Tora Origami from ebay, since these were only available in 2009. They will be very pricy, however.

You're both wrong. Flagging

You're both wrong. Flagging sales are the reason behind the cheapening.

The DaiTenku is an animal/vehicle hybrid.

It mixes bird and bomber plane. That's what's with the placement of the tiger's head: It's intended as a bombing chute.

I can see what it was going for, but..

As I said in my old comment the DaiTenku seems to be a mix of a Pheonix/Ho'oh (based on the head and the long tail) and a heavy bomber like the B-29 or B-52 (hence the bulk and the tiger-head-as-bomb-chute)..

That said, it still kinda feels like a Tsubasamaru/Falconzord wannabe.
