Product solicitation sheets from the toy conglomerate Bandai reveal that Tokumei Sentai Gobusters, the newest live-action Super Sentai television series, will premiere on February 26 in Japan. The various Super Sentai projects are the source material for the international Power Rangers franchise.
The new series begins with three heroes: Red Buster, Blue Buster, and Yellow Buster. Their Buster Machines — the cheetah-transforming Gobuster Ace, Gorilla, and Rabbit — combine to form Gobuster O, for which Bandai is making a 310-millimeter-tall (about 12.2-inch-tall) toy. To transform themselves, the heroes have a Buster Gear called Morphin' Brace with pop-up sunglasses.
The heroes also have "Buddyroids" — Chida Nick, Gorisaki Banana, and Usada Lettuce — that transform into the heads of their respective Buster Machines. (The Buddyroids' names are references to the food eaten by the animals that inspired the Buster Machines' alternate modes; niku is the Japanese word for meat.)
