    Well Bandai had to release a statement and promote the deluxe Kingohger ahead of the reveal.



    Comprised of the primary five team mecha and five other little bugs. It's a 10 piece mecha right at the start. It's also got alot of articulation compared to the bricks of the past(even better than DonOnitaijn)

    The smaller mecha mostly just fill out the gaps of KingOhger

    King-Ohger appears next time in DonBrothers!

    In an episode still being written by Inoue and almost directly after a major plot revelation



    Interestingly the team core mecha is called "KingOhger". There's been chatter that the team might not settle on a name for themselves for awhile.

    Wow, God Kuwagata takes up even more of the robo than usual -- it's the torso, arms, and upper legs. The mantis and the bee make up the lower legs. The dragonfly is the sword and the wings, the butterfly is the sword hilt and the head. Of the peripherals, the spiders are basically torso shielding and the ladybugs are arm shielding, but that ant wrapped around the sword blade seems entirely pointless. Unless the sword also turns into a gun and the ant is the trigger or grip, maybe.

    Why do I have a feeling that mecha is going to be "EXPENSIVE".
    WAY too many parts.

    Almost entirely pointless. It is mainly there to cover up any unnecessary holes that are exposed

    The DX King-Ohger set of 10 is scheduled for release on March 4 2023 at a price of 9350 Yen. God Kabuto the first auxiliary mecha will be released in Late March 2023 for 3850 Yen.

    Compared to American toys that skimp on articulation and paint(mainly silver) I'd say it's worth it for 90 dollars

    Another speculation is she wanted to direct the episode but Hasbro said no

    Also. The Ranger keys have been quite popular these past 12 years way after Gokaiger ended. There's always been an opportunity to sell a ranger set of keys.

    Coming soon. KingOhger ranger keys

    I don't if anyone has mentioned this yet, but the official Power Rangers Youtube channel, at least it says "Power Rangers Official" with a confirmation check, has all of Mighty Morphin through Jungle Fury, and Dino Charge/Super Dino Charge available to watch for free. They appear to be in the process of adding RPM right now too.

    ^ Yeah, YouTube is now supposed to be the exclusive online streaming home for most of old PR (you can still find MMPR, Ninja Steel, and Beast Morphers on Netflix alongside, obviously, Dino Fury), and more seasons/series keep getting added as time goes on.

    I wish the Toei YouTube channel would carry the new Sentai and Rider shows live, like Tsuburaya does with Ultraman. And that it subtitled everything instead of just the first couple of episodes of their old shows.
