Space Patrol Set

Ah! so this is the toy that I saw in my local toy store. I wonder what it is. I only saw the japan packing of this toy. But without the Deka robo, I think it is useless.

The Blast Buggy was only

The Blast Buggy was only the second Super Sentai toy to be a film-exclusive- to never appear in the associated series. (The first- Gao Kong- was from "...GaoRanger: The Movie- Fire Mountain Howls", that that was just a repaint!) And, for the most part, it's fairly unique- a light armor & weapons upgrade for the DekaRanger Robo. It wasn't meant to be a major player, hence its simple design & function. But, I also think that it fits right in with the other SPD mecha. (I use it in place of the horrible DekaBike Robo...) In addition to that, what the Space Patrol Set's release did not include was the missile-firing option, but it's close enough that- like me- you can use it as a stop-gap until you find the rarer Blast Buggy.

While it is dependent on the DekaRanger Robo to show its full potential, it's also a nice little vehicle on its own- with good detailing, that big-ass cannon on top, and the nice big wheels to roll around on as well. This thing'll even conquer carpet which most Super Sentai mecha can't claim!
