OOH! I LOVE DAIGOYOU! He's probably my favorite Sentai Robot EVER.

His character in the show. He

His character in the show. He was the perfect bit of humor, and the perfect little henchman for Genta.

Sometime ago, after the DX

Sometime ago, after the DX Shinkenoh had sold out and before the SRC one was released, I was really looking forward to get this toy. It's big, stylish and seems to be forever on sale on HLJ, and I didn't even know it had light and sound effects! Maybe it's finally time to add one more Shinkenger piece to the collection :)

Thanks for the review!

Well, HLJ sent this to us

Well, HLJ sent this to us about two weeks ago, and let us know they still have some. And with their deep discounts and sales, I suggest you jump immediately if you still want one, because with today's exchange rate the original MSRP now makes this toy USD $80!

Glad to hear you liked the review!

I think Daigoyo's character

I think Daigoyo's character grows on you after a while in the show... and it helps that he's never as intrusive as some of the other "sidekick" characters in the franchise (like that blasted kid from Goseiger... grrrr...) I can see how the repetition in the sound clips could get real old real fast, though.

The toy is the only one from the DX Shinkenger line that's missing from my collection. As much as I am rabidly in love with the series, I've been on the fence about buying one for a long time now. Thanks to your review (which is excellent as usual), I think I'm gonna give him a pass... he's interesting enough, but with limited space on my shelves I think there's others I should spring for.

Finally got one of these

Finally got one of these a few weeks back. Unfortunately, mine was used and had only one of the disks.

Two things:

First, I noted that the disks DO fit in his hands. The hands are PVC and thus slightly flexible. You can place the disks with the hollow side toward the thumb by angling the hollow side into the thumb and then snapping the rest into place. I should take a pic of mine.

Secondly, there is a removable section of his front where the disks are dispensed. Anyone know why this can be removed?

Yeah, the hands are PVC, but

Yeah, the hands are PVC, but I don't want to ruin either them or any Disc as either part could break, especially the thumb. You COULD slide it in there, but I advise again that.

Since I reviewed this toy, I haven't gotten a satisfactory answer on what that crotch plate is for. (I address it directly in the video, BTW.)

Succeeds where Kyoryu fails

Kyoryu Origami was an attempt to create a toy that was both a roleplay weapon and a mecha that interacted with the others.. and failed at being either.

Daigoyo, however, can combine as a torso robot, which works much better than a human-size roleplay weapon (with ELECTRONICS to boot) trying to be a sword for something only around a foot tall, looks interesting and plays well on his own, and does not suffer from such poor weight distribution as to risk damaging himself. And while the jitte is annoyingly bereft of a fold-out handle, it's still light enough that Shinken DaiGoyo can balance it like that.

Pity PRSS didn't create a Deluxe Lightzord toy to match the fun, but there's plenty of time for someone to slip it in, especially with the franchise restored to being a profitable powerhouse.
