More Dino Charge toy info Thanks to Razzle1337

Check out Razzle's Dazzles Blog

Razzle1337 has found new Dino Charge listings at Toys R Us and has given us names to Rangers, arsenal, villains, zords and other toys. These are tentative and might not be used on the show (reminds me of Megaforce's Lion Laser changed to Robo Laser on the show). 

5” Figures
42211 Armor On Red Ranger
42212 Armor On Blue Ranger
42213 Armor On Pink Ranger
42214 Armor On Green Ranger
42215 Armor On Black Ranger
42209 Gold Ranger
42210 Graphite Ranger
42216 Sledge
42217 Ptera Charge Megazord

Role-Play Items/Megazords
42039 Gold Ptera Morpher
42040 Gold Ptera Saber
32097 Ptera Charge Megazord 

 Razzle1337 guesses Ptera Charge Megazord is Pteraiden-Oh, Gold Ptera Saber is Zandar Thunder and Gold Ptera Morpher is Gaburichanger. Sledge might be the new original villain and everyone is a thunder over Graphite Ranger is probably Kyoryu Grey. Graphite is made almost entirely of carbon atoms, and as with diamond, is a native element mineral, and an allotrope of carbon. Graphite is the most stable form of carbon under standard conditions. No name yet for Kyoryu Cyan, if they are going for minerals, they might go for a gemstone like Aquamarine and Amethyst.

What would the others be?
Cyan - Azurite, Apatite, or Aquamarine?
Violet - Amethyst?
Silver - Diamond?
Navy - Sapphire, or Benitoite?
Benitoite
Apatite


New Zealand Artist Michael Day announces his creation Sledge becoming an action figure:

Power Rangers Super Megaforce - All Hail Prince Vekar - Episode Review

  Episode Summary:
 Vekar gets a new Megazord. Gosei gives the Rangers a day off. Jake wants the Sky Ship, Gosei is not for it, Jake convinces him by saying that if there is an emergency and Gosei agrees. Vekar wants to pilotthe megazord but Damaras is not for it. He says Vrak always hogged the glory and that he will prove his father wrong. He remembers Emperor Malkar telling Damaras that Vekar is a blunder and that he must look after him. The Rangers have a picnic on the ship, get attacked by Argus and X-Borgs. They go to Super Mega mode quickly and fight the X-Borgs. Blue fights Argus, he goes down. They use Super Mega Cannon to take down X-Borgs and some red Bruisers arrive called Royal Guards.


The Rangers go down. Blue fights Argus in the warehouse. Orion becomes Wolf Warrior and defeats one Royal Guard (but apparently the other is down too). Argus energizes his solar slash, Blue does a similar move and they cancel each other, making a huge explosion. The Rangers come to Blue's aid. Vekar meets with Argus and teases the Rangers. Orion points at Vekar, saying he destroyed his planet. Vekar blows him off. Vekar has Levira launch the Megazord. Armada Megazord launches from the ship and Vekar enters it.


The Rangers summon their own Megazords. They call Turbo Falcon. Armada Megazord zips around. They use the Dino Thunder keys to combine the Megazords. Armada Megazord beats them up. Vekar sends a finisher and zaps them. Red says to abandon them. The others are ejected, Noah in a quarry and Orion and the others at a park. The zords split up and the Sky Ship crashes.


Argus is sent against the Rangers, Noah defeats him. Vekar returns, the six Rangers reunite and fight Megazord vs Megazord. Gosei gives them more power and they combine Q-Rex, Turbo Falcon and Legendary to make the Ultimate Legendary Megazord. The Armada Megazord and Vekar are destroyed. The Rangers aboard the Sky Ship celebrate. Troy isn't so sure. Jake is positive. Damaras hauls Vekar out and vows revenge.

Episode Review:

I know even though Jason Smith (Casey/Jungle Fury Red) wrote the episode, he might had not had a choice with omitting the other Extra Heroes. In the original Gokaiger, Red became Wolf Warrior, Silver became Magna Defender, Pink became Kat Ranger, Yellow become Sentinel Knight and Green become Blue Senturion. But in this ep, Silver became Wolf Warrior which I think was a mistake. They probably thought they were Sixth Rangers and only Orion can become Sixths but this was a major mistake. Because we don't see the Extra Heroes at all because of this. We get more pre-Zyurangers. By the count of episodes aired in the US, we miss 4 Rangers they don't transform to.


The overall episode was just going through the motions. Noah had no connection to Argus, unlike his Gokaiger counterparts. And Troy's 'sacrifice' was in vain because it wasn't too much like Troy and he was fine, without a scratch.

Sailor Moon - Act 8 - Minako - Sailor V

 Episode Summary:
Picking up from the last episode, Sailor V is in front of the others. They comment on her costume looking different. Queen Beryl sees this in her crystal ball. Luna sees this from Central Command. Sailor V shows her red goggles. Artemis says she is the princess of the Moon Kingdom. Usagi thinks about the crescent moon shape and her tiara changes shape. Zoisite comes up behind her, he sees the others and he disappears. Tuxedo Mask says Princess Serenity and leaves. Sailor V says "That man is..." Tuxedo remembers the events of the last episode and realizes he couldn't protect Usako. Venus comes up to Usagi saying she has done a good job so far. V makes them realize she spoke to them through the V game.
 
They get called by Luna. Venus changes back to Minako Aino. They all enter the control room. They ask where she has been. She said she met Artemis before Luna and Usagi, they been fighting crimes in Tokyo and finding out about Queen Metallia who wanted the Silver Crystal and take over Earth. She is gaing energy from humans. Rei asked if they met before. She says long ago, Metallia destroyed the Silver Millennium, they sealed her but someone broke the seal. They have to seal her again. The girls say they will work together as a team. Minako is quiet and then says thank you. Outside they part ways. Minako says the memory seal will be broken soon, that time is running out. Artemis stresses to her to work as a team, she says she has a mission, only to be completed by her.
 
 
Usagi has another dream she is the princess being pulled by Prince Endyimon and is called Serenity, she wonders the meaning and wonders if Minako is hiding something. She bumps into Mamoru in the park, who is reading books about crystals. She remembers he told her why he is after the crystal. Usagi wonders where it is. Mamoru says he couldn't protect her and he feels ashamed. She blushes. She hands him a watch. He tells her to keep it. He says he has her handkerchief, they will trade next time. Luna leaves, she wonders if it appropriate if they fall in love. Artemis bumps into her, saying her first mission is to find the Senshi and bring them up. He is surprised she doesn't remember, he guesses it will take time. Meanwhile at the Dark Kingdom, Metallia tells Beryl to target Venus because she might know where the crystal is. Kunzite says he will do the mission for her now.
 
 
Kunzite tells Minako to go along to Tokyo Tower with the crystal. Artemis is against this. The girls bump into her, asking her to dinner. She makes an excuse and runs away. All the electricity is shut down by Kunzite. Luna tells the other Senshi about this and they run. They bump into people whose energy has been drained. Usagi thinks of Mamoru, who awakens from a Serenity dream and accesses the situation. Minako henshins into Sailor Venus. She tries Cresent Boomerang to no avail and knocked back by Kunzite. She tells him he has a true self. Beryl tells him to finish her. He is about to blast her when the others arrives thanks to Jupiter making a protective orb. The Senshi tell Venus they are friends and work better as a team.
 
 
The senshi do their attacks but they don't work. Sailor Moon tries Moon Healing Esclation but gets attacked. Venus gets blasted and Jupiter saves the others. Tuxedo saves Moon, she blushes, cries and hugs him. She nods and tells him to go, that it is dangerous, she kisses him. She leaps back up. He says that she is determined today and that she shows him a different side of herself each time. He wants to know who she really is. Moon leaps in front of the Senshi, about to take an attack from Kunzite and Tuxedo takes it instead, knocking his mask off. He closes his eyes. She shouts and then ep will be continued next time...
 
Review:
This truly was a great ep.  It showed Venus' backstory without revealing TOO much but it hasn't been done before in this way. I am glad they kept the storyline of Venus pretending to be Princess from the Manga, it was also used in the live-action version (tokusatsu). I like that Minako wants to work on her own and Artemis is against it. I like that even though it had to do with Venus, it still had plenty of time to deal with Mamoru/Usagi issues. The connection between Kunzite and Minako are lightly touched upon. Also, Usagi is much stronger than her original Anime counterpart. Sure, Usagi got stronger in the original from time to time but she still was goofy cute. What is interesting is Mamoru realizes how useless he is.

Power Force Halloween Package

I misread an e-mail about the Facebook/Party City Halloween Chat with the "Red Ranger" and didn't read I would get a package soon. Anyway, ZeronXepher took a pic of it and I recieved today but FedEx brought it all damaged. It was stepped on and bent and slightly open. Only two items came slightly bent. I already told my Power Force rep and she said she'd take care of it.

 The package comes with:
- Mighty Morphin Morphsuit (color vary)
- Super Megaforce Halloween Bag
- Megaforce Chibi Coin Purse (color vary)
- 6 candies
- Samurai Paddle (color vary--I got a red one)
- Samurai Party Bag
- 3 Megaforce Party Discs (color vary--I got Blue, Black and 3 boys)



- Mini Megaforce Rubix
- Megaforce Tattoo Sheet
- Megaforce Kids Bag




I previously recieved the Blue one two years ago thanks to Saban Brands, now I got two! Too bad I don't fit in. 






Super Megaforce Halloween Bag, yes I know Green and Yellow are missing. My niece bought this for my grandnephew Jaiden and then my nephew's girlfriend got it too, not knowing we already had one. Now I got this one. This came wrinkled and bent thanks to FedEx. 





I got Blue Chibi Coin Purse, some got Red. I like this. The candies I put in the family candy jar that everyone shares, I put the paddle, discs and rubix cube in the party bag to give to my grandnephew when it's his birthday in early November, the cup is going to my grandnephew now, the chibi purse is staying in my room which I'm sure my grandniece and grandnephew will chew on (yes, they are not dogs but they still put stuff in their mouth) and the Halloween bag to my grandnephew Jaiden for Halloween.
