Our first Orange 6th ranger!

And his changer is a smart phone!



Our new hero’s train will be a diesel-powered steam train, the Diesel Ressha.

The Appli Changer is a phone that can open so a railroad appears. You will have to slide the Build Ressha to transform.
His weapon is the Yudo Breaker. It a light baton that serves to guide vehicles, preferably in the dark.
With the Drill Ressha, 6gou can power up his weapon.
When the Diesel, Tank and Car Carrier Ressha combine, Diesel-Oh appears !

The combinaison of the Ressha from 1 to 8 will be called Cho Toq-Oh !
By combining with Toq-Oh, it transforms it into Toq-Oh Police and by combining with Diesel-Oh, it transforms it into Diesel-Oh Police.
By combining with Toq-Oh, it transforms it into Toq-Oh Fire and by combining with Diesel-Oh, it transforms it into Diesel-Oh Fire.

Re: Power Rangers

Good god, the mecha toys in this one are just more and more ungainly. Getting used to the suits though, slowly...

Still fun to see that the Kyoryuuger (and other Sentai?) get to climb aboard their own train when they visit...

I wonder if we are going to get a violet too.

I'm seriously shocked it wasn't a gold or silver like the past six times.

Re: Power Rangers

Odd that they're skipping Go-Busters, given how much it reportedly draws on terms and elements from Power Rangers, like the term "Megazord," the "It's morphin' time" phrase, etc. It seems a little impolite not to return the favor. Maybe they felt it was too similar to previous PR seasons? Or maybe, given how much they seem to want to recapture the feel of MMPR, they're eager to jump ahead to another dinosaur-themed Sentai.

Go_Busters was a flop, it was unpopular and the toys sold like crap, Bandai and Toei like making money so they probably more than fine with bringing a popular toyline to the west earlier.

Bingo. Hit it on the head.


Synopsis


Confirmation from the official Power Rangers Facebook page





Go, go prehistoric era!

The kid-friendly heroes of Saban's Power Rangers return to the land before time for its 22nd season next year with Power Rangers Dino Charge. The series will air on Nickelodeon in 2015, and Bandai America is slated to create a new dinosaur-themed toy line pegged to its launch.

Dinos are a big draw in Japan and will continue the Power Rangers' strong success overseas, according to Bandai CEO Akihiro Sato. And by returning to the Jurassic influence that also gave the world Power Rangers Dino Thunder in 2004, "we know fans will find this next season larger than life," said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands.

In Dino Charge, the Paragon Prisms were given to a dozen dinosaurs for safe keeping by an alien, but they were lost when asteroids hit the Earth and wiped out the dinos. Now in the present day, an intergalactic bounty hunter starts sniffing around Earth looking for the Prisms in order to harness their power and annihilate the world, so a team of Power Rangers forms to find the Prisms first and fight the bounty hunter and other threats with dino-powered swords, blasters, Zords (in Power Rangers lingo, large fighting machines) and Megazords.

No need to wait till next year for a new season of Power Rangers, though — Power Rangers Super Megaforce, the 21st season of the franchise that debuted in 1993, premieres Feb. 15 (noon ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.


Bounty hunter eh? Sounds different from Kyoryuger which some people will like

That's a plausible explanation... but every previous Super Sentai season from Zyuranger onward has been adapted for Power Rangers, with none of them skipped (although Dairanger and Kakuranger were only partially adapted). So did Go-Busters perform notably worse than the preceding 20 seasons inclusive? Or is there some other factor behind the decision?

Maybe it's a mix of reasons. Maybe the producers on one or both sides of the Pacific were unhappy with PR being two years behind SS instead of just one, so they wanted to catch up, and when an unpopular Sentai season happened, they decided that was their opportunity. The next one being dinosaur-themed could've been an additional incentive. So maybe kind of a "perfect storm" of factors.

Re: Power Rangers

According to Fury Diamond of RangerCrew/Megaforce Cast, Go-Buster footage will be used in Dino Charge in some fashion.

Saban is in charge again.

Not too excited about Dino Thunder making a return. Looking forward to the train themed rangers, unless they skip that too.

^Aside from Dinosaurs, it has nothing to do with Dino Thunder.

Terrible ratings and terrible toy sales. Bandai absolutely hated the show and scapegoated it for the failure of the toyline. Kyoryuger is considerd by them the best selling toyline since Gaoranger/Wildforce.

Re: Power Rangers

I'd be happy if they did tie it into Dino Thunder in some way, since that was one of my favorite Disney seasons. And getting to see Emma Lahana again would be lovely. And maybe they could bring back Jason Frank too in some capacity. It would be fitting if the three dinosaur-themed series had a common thread. (Or I should say "dinosaur"-themed, since only two of the five "DinoZords" were actually based on dinosaurs, the T. rex and the triceratops. The others were a pterosaur -- related but distinct -- and two Pleistocene mammals.)

Which, of course, is not an unprecedented situation. Did Go-Busters do notably worse than the 9-10 consecutive seasons of Super Sentai that were adapted when Saban was in charge the first time?

Come to think of it, though, the situation was materially different in one way back then. At the time, they were only one season behind; if they'd skipped a season, they would've had to run concurrently with the corresponding Sentai, and that wouldn't work because presumably SS would've still needed the costumes and props and it would've been more expensive for PR to duplicate everything -- not to mention the full range of stock footage they needed might not have been available. So up until the past few years, they simply didn't have the option of skipping a season (or folding two seasons into one). That must be the deciding difference -- it just wasn't possible before. And of the series they've adapted since Saban took over again, Go-Busters must be the first one that did poorly enough to skip/subordinate. Yeah, that makes sense.

I'm wondering how saban will deal with Kyoryuger VS Go-buster. He can technically BUY the VS movie but the Go-busters are in it.

In an odd addition all 3 dino teams will crowd the movie too.

Toei must really think Go-buster's can't succeed on it's own with Kyoryuger so they add the dino element into the VS.












Oddly enough, Geki(TyrannoRanger) is using the new Legacy morpher toy.

Well, they did say above that there would be some Go-Busters footage incorporated. Maybe it'll be like the Alien Rangers, an alternate Ranger team alongside the Dino Charge Rangers.

In fact, I think I read that the Go-Busters storyline involves an alternate-timeline Go-Busters team that interacts with the main one. Maybe DC will go the alternate-timeline route too, and use the Go-Busters costumes as the alternate Rangers.

maybe this will help Christopher.

With the help of Kyoryuger, the third dinosaur Sentai, the brand earned an estimated 14.0 billion yen in the Toys and Hobby Business area. This was an improvement over Go-Buster’s 9.6 billion yen and also marks the most successful Sentai year since before Gaoranger.
