Gosei Great Megazord


2 comments posted

After Gokaiger, Goseiger (imho), marked the point where aesthetics and design of the zords starts going downhill.

Even if Gokai-Oh and its components combined into one giant brick, at least we had a nicely designed brick with some cool gimmicks. I never understood, why on earth, the designers for Goseiger chose headers as a theme, a bleh color scheme, and underwhelming gimmicks.

Now BOA makes it even worse by downgrading the BOJ version with haphazard finishes and simplified parts. Why not just make a direct import of the BOJ version instead?

A definite bleh for me.

"Why not just make a direct import of the BOJ version instead?"

Because the original Japanese version cost $80 before shipping and handling even back in 2010.
The days of importing the original version(s) of any Super Sentai toys to the USA without drastic price differences changed many years ago and isn't likely to revert anytime soon. The world economy has dictated that.
