Ranger Key Cockpit Playset

Comes with a metallic Aka Ranger Key. Looks a bit interesting, but they should have went with the Gokaiger's Pirate Wheel instead.

Power Rangers Comic-Con News

First to start things off here's the future of the Anniversary Toyline and it looks very promising! From Tokunation:

We are getting a re-release of the 2010 Dino Megazord, but this time with Metallic Paint. We are also getting a Shinken-Oh release! We are getting a Dragon Armor Red Ranger figure as well as mini helmets just like Japan has. But the real highlight is the release of the Power Morpher!! I can't wait for this toyline. 2013, we're ready for you!

In other news, Power Rangers Megaforce will utilize Gokaiger footage in its second season. It was confirmed by Elie Dekel. Also the new block that will air Power Rangers re-runs will be called the Vortexx. Power Rangers Lost Galaxy will begin to air on that block.

New Go-Busters Upgrade!

From Jefusion:

The upgraded form of the Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters have finally been revealed in the 3rd Quarter toy catalogs! They will now be called Go-Busters Powered Custom.

The form can be accessed via the GB Custom Visor attachment for the Morphin Brace. The GB Custom Visor will be released on October/November for 3360 yen, whereas the RHS RedBuster Powered Custom on October for 640 yen.

**This will be my last post for a couple of weeks. I will return with more news at the end of the month.**

New Go-Busters Robo

From Jefusion:

LT-06 Tategami Rai-Oh can transform to a lion, as its Animal Mode, and motorcycle (?) as its Vehicle Mode. It can combine with GT-02 Gorilla and RH-03 Rabbit to form Go-Buster RaiOh. Adding BC-04 Beetle and SJ-05 Stag Beetle in the equation will form Go-BusterKing!

Saban Brands to rebuild CW toon block


"The CW is turning over its Saturday-morning animation block for kids to Saban Brands, the network announced Thursday.
Pact comes days after the previous owner of the time lease to the five-hour block, 4Kids Entertainment, sold off assets in bankruptcy court to both Kidsco Media Ventures (a division of Saban) and Konami's 4K Acquisition Corp. for $15 million. Kidsco won the rights to the CW block as part of the selloff.
The daypart will be rebranded and resupplied with new programming in the fall, though tentpole attractions "Power Rangers" and "Yu-Gi-Oh!" will stick around. A companion website will also be launched.
Saban will assume responsibility for selling ads in the block, a portion of which will go to CW in exchange for the airtime.
Financial terms nor the length of the deal were disclosed. The end of 4Kids's current five-year pact with CW was scheduled to expire in October.
"The association with Saban and the programming and marketing they will bring to us will be a great asset for The CW and its affiliates on Saturday mornings," said CW chief operating officer John Maatta.
In addition to oversight of the global phenomenon that is the "Rangers" franchise, which was bought from Disney in 2010, Saban has been in the Saturday-morning business before. In 1996, Haim Saban's company merged with Fox Kids to program toons for kids on Fox for a few years.
"Saban Brands is back in the kids' television business in a big way," said Elie Dekel, president of Saban Brands. "The broadcasting block represents a unique opportunity for us to be the premier destination for action/adventure and comedy on Saturday mornings, while delivering what kids want online and on mobile 24/7/365."
4Kids launched a The CW4Kids brand on CW in 2008 before rebranding as Toonzai two years later."

This gives more confirmation to what was said during the Licensing Show a couple weeks back. I have high hopes for this block. Saban is a smart businessman and hopefully we will see the next installment of Power Rangers on here after Megaforce. It also might go back to being a year for each adaptation once 2014 is over. Only time will tell.
