    Of course they care about Western culture. You'll note that whatever I'm supposed to call the Orange ToQGer is pretty blatantly a cowboy in his monster form.

    Oh, so that's why half the henshins and other catch phrases are in English, because they want nothing to do with them! Also, it's not a century old, it's still current. Also, English is kinda the language of the culture it's from.

    Lots of new info on toys and the mecha, but terrible pictures.

    Main Mecha is called Shuriken Gattai Shurikenjin. This five piece robot is composed of Shinobumaru, a humanoid robot ninja/torso, Dragomaru, left arm/dragon, Dumpmaru, a dump truck/right arm, Wanmaru, a dog, one of the 2 legs and Byunmaru, a train (byun is an onomatopoeia meaning something that is moving fast). The main gimmick of the mecha is similar to Ohranger Robo's helmet change where different Shurikens can become Shurikenjin's helmet and gives the mecha different attributes. Above is one of those modes, Shurikenjin Drago.



    Additional mechas are called Otomo Shinobu with the first 2 being called Paonmaru (elephant) and UFOmaru (UFO) and a 3 stage transformation mecha called Shinobumaru Whirlwind.

    As for the toy gimmicks and price, here's the list:

    Shinobi Shuriken – Just like the Shinkenger Hiden Discs. the swords are activated by setting the Shurikens. Voice and LED’s in each. with each of the 5 Ninningers Shurikens will be capable of forming the head of their main robot as well!

    DX Shinobigatana Best Sword - Sword weapon/changer of the series. This toy includes the Red Shuriken, 4980 yen.

    DX Gammagamma Gun - Includes Blue Shuriken, 3980 yen.

    DX Ninnin Buckle - Includes Shiro/White Shuriken, 2800 yen.

    DX 5 Super Ninja Tonnin shuriken
    - 1800 yen.

    Better picture of the mecha. These are going to take some getting used to.
