The 38th official Super Sentai has been revealed via Bandai toy catalog, and it’s… well, really ugly. Presenting Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger:
The idea of the show is apparently to branch out from the usual Sentai market and make something that will appeal to toy train otaku (which actually is a large niche in Japan). Of course, the danger of this is that they usually prefer models of real trains as opposed to transforming robot trains, but who knows, maybe Kamen Rider Den-Oh model kits did really well? At any rate, that is one hideous robot.
Tokkyuger starts February 16. For a look at the rest of the catalog (including weapons, henshin devices, etc), check out hju.
Since I forgot to mention it earlier, Toei also has HappinessCharge Pretty Cure starting in Japan in February, marking PreCure‘s 10th anniversary. Leaked designs from amazon:
