meh,it doesn't look enough

meh,it doesn't look enough like a regular arcade game to me. The day they come out with a Pac-Man or Street Fighter II I'll be all over it.

I know we have tons and tons

I know we have tons and tons of video games where fighting is the thing that happens, but a video game machine doing the fighting? Ordinarily that might sound cool, like something out of Transformers, but-- no, no. Uh-uh. I refuse. You might be able to drag this particular horse to water, but I refuse to drink this putrefied infected purple sludge.

This is NOT a Super Sentai toy even though it says it is on the box. There have been some unusual transformable helper mecha in the past- paper lantern, robot ninja-in-training, race car tire- but this one takes the cake as the one that has had the least amount of support from the fan base. And I count myself among them in that opinion. It's a POS devoid of spirit because he's so dammed annoying both as a character and as a toy, and two of his modes are dependent on a series-wide gimmick (Headers) which rendered the line neutered and highly detestable. The only good part of the line- collectible cards that are read by the toys as well as real arcade machines- was completely overshadowed wasted here. (Just typing the name "Hyper Gosei Great" makes me sick to my stomach...)

This is a shelf-warmer in the strongest sense. I shouldn't really have any say in the matter because I am obviously outside the target demographic, but do NOT get this thing. I was given the opportunity to review it, and I told Josh I wouldn't touch it because I was so fed up with the whole debacle and would have been largely biased in my examination.

You're certainly right about the bias

Geez, you were REALLY bitter about the Headers lol. Even though they work better as an overall gimmick for the mecha than cards would have. You're so salty about them that you throw the one mecha you can stick cards in - you know, that thing you thought was so superior - under the bus. Frankly, with how ungodly biased you are about the Headers someone else should have been put in charge of ALL the Goseiger reviews so that we could get something more balanced and useful.

"There have been some unusual transformable helper mecha in the past- paper lantern, robot ninja-in-training, race car tire- but this one takes the cake as the one that has had the least amount of support from the fan base."
American fans aren't the real fanbase lol. Especially not American fans who have zero tolerance for quirkiness and take SS too seriously. Get over yourself.

Frankly, as Datas Hyper he looks more like a classic toku robot than any of the ones you mentioned (and is most likely an homage to Daitetsujin 17). The only REAL problem with him is that the column on the arcade control panel ends up impolitically positioned (at least on the suit, it's not as bad on the toy).

Kind of neat as an arcade and

Kind of neat as an arcade and regular Datas. Not a fan of the Hyper mode though.

EVA_UNIT you really hate this thing!

I love your passion! That is why i love this site. Not only can we love toys, we can express our extreme hatred for some as well. I am with you all the way EVA. This thing looks bad, like no play value at all, just lame.

Hyper looks like a pre-Zyu

Hyper looks like a pre-Zyu toy.
