Akibarangers was awesome.

Akibarangers was awesome. Aside from the episode count, I think there's nothing to dislike about it. This figure does perfect justice to it and, personally, I think its slimmer body looks better.

I wonder what happened to the helmetless heads that were shown in early prototypes of the SHF Akibarangers. Will they be Web Exclusives or were just abandoned?

I think part of the charm of the series is that it was only 12 episodes( +1 for recap). Had it gone on any longer, I imagine it would run into some of the problems that other tokusatsu shows run into like boring filler episodes, a stretched out storyline, lame villains and unsatisfying endings.

I was wondering about the un-helmeted figures also, there has been no mention of them or Malshina recently. So is suspect that if they do come out they will be Tamashii Web exclusives.

I think they were showed off and then forgotten about. I was really looking forward to grabbing them. I want more information about Malshina and the Corporate Drone figuarts.

this show is nothing short of brilliant, especially as a 1-2 punch coming off of Gokaiger. So much love, and pretty damn smartly written for appeared to be a parody show.

Unfortunately I cant afford figuarts (i'd have to catch them all), but if Akibarangers come to the Sentai Hero Series vinyl figures, Im all over it

Akibarangers is definitely a gem in the Super Sentai line, even though it is unofficial.

I know what you mean. It is tough to not buy the whole team. I am just glad that unlike the other Super Sentai S.H.Figuarts, all of the Akibarangers are a regular part of the line. Having to buy Tamashii Web Exclusives really hurts the wallet.

Even though it's unoffical, Unoffical Sentai Akibaranger is one of my favorite sentai's, especially the second season (Powerful Ranger FTW)
