Tokumei Sentai Gobusters First Images


After months of waiting, the first scans of the 36th Super Sentai Series, Tokumei Sentai Gobusters (特命戦隊ゴーバスターズ) is finally here! What's more is that we have the toy catalog for next year and the plot for the series!

Here is the plot of the series as seen in the show's poster:

A long time ago, among mountains far from any civilization, there was a center researching on human innovation. One day, the main computer of the research became malicious and went berserk. Humanity managed to stop this, and peace came back... or so it seemed.

Humans, now in peace, predicting that their enemy could go berserk and attack another time, decided to build giant robots and machine, and trained chosen warriors to fight against it. Finally, this day has come.

The name of the team formed to fight against the enemy is Tokumei Sentai Gobusters! Now their battle begin.


Just like the Super Sentai shows that followed after an anniversary series (Hurricaneger and Gekiranger), the Gobusters will start with three members, namely: RedBuster, BlueBuster and YellowBuster. The three of them will have partner robots called Buddy Roids namely: Cheetah Niku, Gorisaki Banana and Usada Lettuce.

Their main mecha Gobuster-Oh will be made up of three individual mechas: Gobuster Ace, RedBuster's race car that turns into cheetah, and have a robot mode; GT-02 Gorilla, BlueBuster's truck that can change into a gorilla; and RH-03 Rabbit, YellowBuster's helicopter that can change into a rabbit.

Cheetah Niku, as a Buddy Roid, can transform into a cockpit for BusterRed to pilot. Cheetah Niku and Red's Buster Machine can combine into the "Buster Vehicle CB-01 Cheetah".

Cheetah can then undergo a transformation into animal form, making it into a Buster Animal, "Buster Animal CB-01 Cheetah". That form then transforms into the robot, GobusterAce. Combines with Gorilla and Rabbit to form GobusterOh.

The Gobusters will be equipped for their fight against a berserk computer and his troops with these devices. Based on their descriptions, the series might really go with the rumored spy theme.

Buster Gear Series 01 Morphin' Brace
Releases: February
Price: 3,675 yen (temp price)
The Gobusters' transformation device. Has a "Henshin Mode" (transforms the rangers), "Call Mode" (summons Buddy Roids), "Let's Driving Mode" (summons Buster Machines), "Analyze Mode", "Robo Mode" (activates GobusterAce), "Game Mode" (play a game using the dial on the MorphinBrace) and "Special Mode" (secret mode activated via the brace's dial).

Looking at the pictures, the transformation call seems to be "It's Morphing Time", with the catchphrase for the show being "It's time for Buster". Just like what was mentioned in the rumors, they will use the sunglasses to transform as Gobusters.
