‘Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers’ Anime Website Launches With New Video And Art

It doesn't yield too much specific plot information about Toei and Marvel's first major teamup since Japanese Spider-Man circa 1978, but the freshly-launched official website for the Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers anime does deliver a lot of new character information via new artwork, character bios and even some animation.

Don’t Say No, Just Eat More: Toei Hero World Introduces Kamen Rider Buns And Other Edibles

Kamen Rider Buns from Toei Hero World

On the off chance that there just weren't enough reasons for us to hop on a transcontinental flight to Japan and visit Toei's Hero World, the new indoor theme park and museum based around the history of tokusatsu, they've given us a new one, and it is edible. It was pretty inevitable that they'd have a few Kamen Rider and Super Sentai themed menu items to snack on while you were browsing a collection of props or waiting for the bumper motorcycles to open up, but I assumed it would be limited to plastic "Collector Cups" and, I don't know, the Gorenger-themed "Big One" Burger. They are not.

They have, instead, given us delicious looking buns shaped like Kamen Riders' heads. And, you know, also collector cups. Check 'em out below!

Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger Dino Charge
Toei

Following its Power Rangers Super Megaforce localization of Toei's Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger series, Saban will return to the dinosaur motif that made Mighty Morphin Power Rangers a huge hit in America back in 1993. According to USA Today, in 2015 Power Rangers Dino Charge will debut on Nickelodeon, meaning that Saban will skip the spy-themed 36th Japanese Sentai Series known as Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters in favor of a show with more humor, more rangers and a lot more dinos.

‘Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers’ Anime Toy Images Arrive Online

Marvel Disk Wars- The Avengers toys Bandai
Bandai

Marvel Disc Wars: The Avengers -- perhaps the most prominent team-up between Marvel and Toei since Japanese Spider-Man in 1978 -- still has a few months before it's set to debut on TV in Japan, but Big Bad Toy Store already has a low-res look at its toys from Bandai. The assortment of action figures and transforming disks doesn't necessarily clarify the show's plot, but it is nice to see a more anime-style Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Spider-Man and the Hulk in articulated 3D.

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.
