Following the current season of the dance/gun/dinosaur-themed Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, Toei will launch its 38th Super Sentai series, Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger. It's all about trains! Train track helmets, railroad crossing chest motifs, a giant combined train mech known as the TokkyuOh, electronic train ticket device morphers called Tokkyu Chargers  -- this show looks like it's going to be the right kind off the rails.

Toei Hero World Confirms Adult Sized Kamen Rider Bumper Motorcycles, So I Guess I’m Going To Japan

Toei Hero World promotional art

A few weeks back, we brought you the announcement of Toei Hero World, an indoor amusement park and museum devoted to Super Sentai (the show that was adapted into the last 20 years worth of Power Rangers) and Kamen Rider (the story of a line of heroes who kick monsters to death while riding motorcycles). As you  might imagine from those summaries, this is something that the staff here at ComicsAlliance is pretty excited about, but now, we have an even better reason: Toei has previewed the attractions at Hero World.

As you can see above, this includes one very important, game-changing bombshell: The part where you ride bumper-car motorcycles through a track filled with inflatable Shocker Combatmen does in fact have motorcycles sized for adults, so I guess I pretty much have to go there now (CA Editor Caleb Goellner can ride in the sidecar). Check out a few other attractions below, and start pricing that trip to Mihama, Chiba City.

Full Line of ‘Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger’ S.H. Figuarts Teased

Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger S.H. Figuarts Main

It'll be a few years before Nickelodeon and Saban get a chance to Power Ranger-fy them here, but right now in Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger is Toei's tokusatsu task force of choice. As such, Bandai's S.H. Figuarts action figure line is set to be brimming with the multihued heroes in the coming year, with the series' dinosaur-themed cast rolling out in a major way. Team leader KyoryuRed's figure arrived just this week, and it's set to be joined by a two-pack pairing KyoryuBlue and the standalone KyoryuGreen KyoryuGold later this spring. While KyoryuBlack and KyoryuPink haven't been scheduled, they're confirmed to join the team down the road as seen in a slew of new images on Japanese retailer AmiAmi.

Toei Hero World Tokusatsu Museum Is Set To Open This December In Japan

TokuMuseum01

There was a time when I thought that the single best reason to go to Japan was that amazing Hello Kitty amusement park that featured a parade where Kitty teamed up with Noah (you know, from the Bible) to lead animals back from the far reaches of the galaxy. I'm still pretty interested in seeing that in person, but on the off chance that I needed something else to check out over there, we now have Toei Hero World to look forward to.

Set to open to the public in Mihama, Japan this December -- just in time for the Christmas spirit to take hold of you and cause you to buy a couple of plane tickets for the CA staff -- Hero World is a museum devoted entirely to the proud history of tokusatsu programs like Kamen Rider and Super Sentai (better known over here as the Power Rangers), complete with rides for the kids -- and by that I mean me and Caleb -- who are so devoted to superheroes and their giant dinosaur robots.

Former Power Ranger Opening Tokusatsu Themed Bar in Japan

sentaibarmain

For a small sub-section of a generation raised on the special effects-enriched slugfest Power Rangers franchise -- in any of its many, many flavors, from the classic Mighty Morphin to Samurai, through things like Ninja Storm, Dino Thunder and the classic* Mystic Force -- there is likely no cooler idea than getting drunk in the company of an honest-to-goodness Power Ranger. To those dreamers, however, some good news: if you travel to Japan, you can now legiti
