Although I guess if the "Zords" were based on sailing ships, that would be a change of pace from the usual cycle of animals, cars, and animal-cars.

And they can turn into past Sentai heroes? I.e. recycle costumes from old seasons? I guess that's the anniversary theme... but it also kind of fits the pirate theme, in the sense that they're "stealing" others' identities.

As for Samurai, are they bringing back the old MMPR theme (which I never much liked), or is that just for the promo?
The pirates theme was primarily chosen for the rise in popularity(One Piece, POTC)

The mecha rumors



その2

そしてお待ちかねの商品説明!
遊ばせて戴きました!!
ゴーカイジャーのロボットは船、飛行機、車、潜水艦、トレーラーが合体し、今後の商品と合わせる事で遊びが 広がります!
魔法使いや刑事、侍とかとか?
また、レジェンド戦隊との事で、昔の戦隊関連の商品が展開するようです。
この内容は熱かった!
GoukaiGalleon (Pirate Ship, Red), Airplane, A Car, Submarine, Trailer.

Future mechs will have relations to other sentai, such as Wizards, Detectives, Samurai and beyond.

What it sounds like to me is auxiliary mecha will be designed to pay homage to different themes

There could be dino aux headders, ninja headders etc etc.




The headder concept is basically smaller auxiliary mecha/toys that attach to points on the robo

The current series Goseiger started the concept


Here is how they're used for toys. Goseiger had three sets representing Sky, land and sea

GoseiGreat for this year's series which will end in February





RUMOR

The Goukaiger robo will wear different headders for attacks



The Power Ranger theme in the Samurai promo was purely for nostalic reasons
