DX Diesel Ressha

Good review!

Thanks for going into extra detail on the other possible combinations of these robots; I'd been wondering about whether certain part-swaps would be feasible. I'm not a fan of the Cho ToQ-Oh for the same reasons you cite, but I like a lot of the potential alternate combinations. In fact, it looks like they can be mix-and-matched to make niftier-looking versions of both mecha.

The next thing I'm super-curious about is whether there's any potential for the non-Den-O EX mecha to form feet or arms, or if they're pretty much relegated to being chest pieces.

I'm also curious about the inverted-T indentations on Diesel Ressha (normally hidden by the engine bib.) I wonder if they're connection points for future mecha. It's odd to realize I like different combinations of this Sentai's mecha significantly more than most in-show combinations. I'm guessing the super-awkward feet extensions for Cho ToQ-Oh are there to keep the whole thing from falling forward, but man, it looks awful.

From the picture of all the

From the picture of all the EX resshas I have seen, including the one from Goseiger and Gokaiger, it appears that they will all serve the function of being the chest piece on the ToQ-Oh. But we have not yet seen all of the EX Resshas, so we might get other feet Ressha like the Den-O.

So far the "T" indentation are only for attaching the head piece to the Diesel Oh. If you look at the leaked pictures of the Build Ressha, it looks like that part attaches atop of the one of the Build Ressha's pieces in a similar fashion to how it attaches to the Cho ToQ-OH.

I would give the Tank and Car Carrier Ressha points for being functional if they were indeed needed to keep the Cho ToQ-Oh upright. However, the Cho ToQ-Oh can stand just fine without these pieces. Having the legs at a slight angle is enough to keep that combination from toppling over.

I really hope they skip this

I really hope they skip this series for Power Rangers and go back for Go-Buster. These are the least compelling mecha in the history of sentai.

The simplicity of recent

The simplicity of recent combinations in Kyoryuger and ToQGer does give a different perspective on the Go-Busters mecha. Sure the Gobuster-Oh was a clusterF@ck of a mecha, but at least the toys were ambitious.

I feel they rushed this

I feel they rushed this series after Kyoryuger, the sentai suits looks awful, the idea is unattractive, and the "mecha-oh's" are the ugliest thing I have seen in a while on the media. They even look like knock off... I think that chinesse Thomas that transform into a mecha is better than this...
