I... want a Battlizer?

I... want a Battlizer? O_o

Seriously, that thing looks awesome. So too do the motorcycles, though I won't get any of those.

OMG, that kiosk rep kills me, just kills me! She's so on-script that it's sad. She sounds like she's talking to a little kid, not an adult collector who knows a hell of a lot more about it than she does. Atom, I'm surprised you didn't try to quiz her. BTW, not that I'm trying to sound sexist-or-anything, but why is a +40 woman selling an action toy line?

I JUST found out a few hrs ago that the enhanced-armor look of all those figures is what they will really look like inside the Samurai Megazord when they're piloting. This is how they have avoided the uncomfortable-to-translate-over kanji in the Shinken-Oh's cockpit. However, there are a few figures that will feature the typical skin-tight 'spandex' armor.
Enhanced armored suits that appear when piloting a giant robot? I'm genuinely impressed!

Okay, so let me see if I get this right...
Bandai America works with Saban to spend money for creating brand new swords for the Rangers when they're inside the Samurai Megazord instead of using the previously-established design, and then they make a giant version of the new one rather than the old one??? And they expect to make that money back when they could have saved a lot of it by NOT making a new one to begin with? Sounds like the ol' BA to me...

GOD! MY! OH! The Retrofire Megazords are back!!! (BTW, where the f**k are my Retrofire Titan and Thundersaurus Megazords?)

(Still debating whether to get the Samurai Megazord or not to review... if it takes me this long to decide, I guess I don't want it?)

I'm liking this line more and more, though I wish I was there to ask some questions. Great vid! Good job!

Well, ask here; maybe someone at CDX knows!

crikey, hearing that woman

crikey, hearing that woman talk made me cringe at every second of that video

now about the figures themselves: i still don't understand why the americans always make the ranger toys so buff, while they look nothing like it in the show.
also don't understand the point of releasing rita into the line. will she be in the show?
while i do like the look of the battlized mode, i don't get why every red ranger since Space has to have a battlized mode.
megazord: meh, i'm quite happy with my shinken-oh

guess i'll stick to Sentai toys.
