    I wish they'd do a rescue theme. It would be a nice change. A nod to Hurricanger? A battleship as the main robot and having the ability to eject mini-mecha? That would be cool. The divided team idea. Not bad idea either. I'm already picturing what type of mechas that could be used in the series.

    Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger

    Sounds interesting to say the least. What do you think? Discuss below!

    As you can tell, the thread title has been changed.

    It will definitely have trains, but the "Tokkyu" makes it sound like they may be going with some kind of rescue theme as well. Even though the word itself hints at "express" I doubt Toei would just do trains alone. There's going to be a catch there.


    Everyone is translating "Ressha" as "Vehement Car" which is technically right, but I think they're going for a pun on more than just "train." "Rekka" means giant blaze, and the "retsu" character can mean heroic.


    Kind of awesome that I get both my favorite motifs back to back though. There goes money.
    Latest rumor posted yesterday:

    -The "Tokkyu" in Tokkyuger will have a double meaning. As rumored before, we may have a rescue type series on our hands. "Tokui"(Special Ability) + "Kyu"(Rescue/Relief)

    -The mecha may be hybrids of rescue vehicles and trains. The prevailing rumor is that the mecha are known as 特救烈車 "Tokkyu Ressha" (Special Rescue Vehement Cars.)

    Rumored as the following:

    Bullet Train/Firetruck Hybrid

    Bullet Train/Police Car Hybrid

    Bullet Train/Ambulance Hybrid

    These trains have the capabilities of different rescue vehicles.

    They may have an origin in space.

    -The Tokkyuger's team weapon is the "特急剣" (Tokkyuken), Limited Express Sword

    Some speculation is cool:

    -The first 3 vehicles are to be joined by a "Blue Train/Helicopter" and a "Yellow Train/Bulldozer"

    -The Train/Firetruck will be Red, the Train/Police Car will be Black, and the Train/Ambulance will be White and Pink

    What a wasted post, Emily. Of course it is Tomas (Thomas). The name is right there in the pic. If you had already known that was Tomas, don't post. Its obvious you posted to make sure it was.

    It's finally here! Toy retailer GreatToysOnline had posted our very first look at the upcoming 38th Super Sentai series Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger (烈車戦隊トッキュウジャー). This season's main theme are trains. The television series starts airing this February 2014.

    At the back, you'll see this year's main mecha, rumored to be called Tokkyu-Oh.

    According to previous information, the new series will target not only kids, the usual target audience for a Super Sentai series, but also train enthusiasts. It is also stated that the series will be using a different call sign, トッキュウ1号 for Tokkyu 1 (Tokkyu Ichigou), Tokkyu 2 (Nigou), Tokkyu 3 (Sangou), Tokkyu 4 (Yongou) and Tokkyu 5 (Gogou). And the transformation device will be electronic tickets

    Copyright for Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger was registered last September. With the suit revealed, cast members will be announced on late December or early January.
