I'm pretty happy about the fact that his transformation gear isn't based on previous Ultramen

This, so much this. After the Ultraman legacy gimmick stuff felt completely pointless in Z in every way, and in fact made getting new powers feel really lame, I'm glad we're ditching it entirely here. Trigger himself looks very nice, even if I don't get the point of the Circle Arms' Power Claw mode (the other two are a lot more obvious but I can't see any use in having the sword split in two like that). The new Spark Lens is also neat, I like the idea of humanity copying the original, but the voice is very underwhelming. Oh well, it hardly matters. I hope it's as good as it looks.

Maybe I need to watch Tiga before this though...July is pretty far away, I have some time...

In all seriousness I find the big SD Gundam eyes on the Shinken and Ohren Gears pretty interesting.

It’s literally GokaiGold but doesn’t look too bad (sort of makes me wonder if he actually IS a Gokaiger somehow).

Based on the fact his toy comes out on the 24th that means we might be seeing him in the series really soon as well

It'll be interesting to see Trigger- I know in Japan Tiga is hugely popular and now a lot of his childhood fans are in their 30s so it's bound to be a big nostalgia show for a lot of people as well. Is this the first time where a big name in entertainment has played the hero in an Ultraman show before?

It happened in Tiga itself too, only there it backfired since his actor's company is a pain in the rear end to deal with and now he got effectively erased from history due to that. Hopefully it won't be the case here too, especially considering how New Generation Heroes tend to reappear a lot.

Ohhhhh right- I had completely forgotten about that. Honestly I don't know a lot about Tiga; I've only watched it once a few years back. I can see why people really dig it but I'm a bit so-so on it. I know it sounds stupid but I have a bit of a hard time watching a lot of 90s shows because the bad video effects are really distracting to me. The whole elder gods thing was odd to me as well.

Funny how S.H. Figurarts was able to cough up enough money to get Hiroshi Nagamo to appear to hawk their Ultraman Tiga figurine, though..

It was probably immensely popular because there hadn't been a new Ultraman produced in Japan for about 15 years (80 produced in 1981, Tiga produced in 1996) and a new generation got a brand new show..

I'm always kind of sad when a new form shows up in Kamen Rider and it has a lot of cool CGI-based tricks that get ignored in favor of regular weapon fighting later.

Like, Hiiro getting Taddle Fantasy was great. Using his cape as a weapon! Summoning mooks to fight for him! Telekinesis! Barriers!

And then he steals his sword back from Kuroto and mostly just sticks to his usual fire and ice slashes.

CGI costs are the worst enemy of any Kamen Rider. Just look at poor OOO GataKiriBa, that never gets used because it's extremely expensive.

None of these toy photos seem to have like.... his 'base' form?

There's an Ohranger and a Shinkenger and a Kyoryuger (I think?) outfit, but maybe in base form it'll look good and the transformations in the show will be cool?

Also given the 35 on the helmet, maybe this means some sorta Gaoranger 7th or something

That literally is his base form, he’s a gold Gokaiger suit for some reason.

if this is the one you're reading as a Kyoryuger form, it's his base one

I wonder if Twokaiser will modify his role call part based on his form. Like, normally, he'll go "Kaizoku Power!" in regular form but if he's in the others he'll go "Chouriki Power!" or "Samurai Power!"

It was sort of a question hedged as a statement because I haven't seen every piece of PR media ever, but uh, thanks for your opinion.

I was surprisingly okay with it. The background it gave on Divatox at first was confusing but I eventually grew to like when I remembered that one set of Turbo writers gave her an evil space pirate family who haunts her dreams, and the next set of Turbo writers gave her Dimitiria as a sister and a monster general as a brother. Given how messed up all of that was, making her a girl hosed up by Darkonda and dark wizard space magic was okay.

Fiveman The Supersonic Rangers had a short story that was in one of the hardcover editions of the MMPR book and then got reprinted in the Power Rangers: The Psycho Path graphic novel.

I think those are the only two we were too lazy to edit Super Megaforce properly "New Powers" to have been in the comics so far.
