New Goseiger Catalogue Pics!

DX GoseiGrand. Knight's gattai robo of the Grandeon, Sealion, and Skylion (with him forming the head of Grandeon, and GoseiGrand.) Grand and Great can gattai into Grand GoseiGreat, complete with a new staff-weapon that utilizes the other Headders. Grand GoseiGreat is pictured with Mystic DatasHyper at the bottom, meaning that the Mystic Brothers are a power up probably designed for Datas Hyper, so he can stand on even footing with this new comnbo.

A mecha chart, showcasing all the formations. At the top is GoseiWonder, the bird-recolor of GoseiDragon, holding 5 new headders, including its own Bird Headder. When it combines with GoseiGreat, it swaps out with the Dragon to form "Wonder GoseiGreat."

New Kamen Rider Info and Fan Pics

Given the cat-emblem, the above is probably Field Form.

New Rider's Blank/Base Form.

The "Bird Form" of the new rider.

The rider's new belt. On one side is the "Medal Holder" which stores the Medals (6 medals can be stored at a time.) The other side of the belt has the "Medal Scanner". Its purpose is unknown, but if I had to guess, it's probably similar to Maximum Drive, where a medal is used to activate a finisher. The 3 corresponding Medals for each form seem to be inserted into the belt, and then the buckle is spun.

-The 2010 rider will change forms via medals. These forms will be represented with different groups of animals. There are 3 medals in each group changing the head, torso/arms, and legs of the rider. The medals are distinguised via lines. 1-lined medals change the head, 2-lined medals change the body/arms, and 3-lined medals change the feet.

-One of his base forms, pictured above, is "Field Form", represented by Lion, Tiger and Cheetah

-Insect Form is composed of a Stag Beetle, Mantis and Butterfly

-A Bird Form is also available

-Eyes are green in "Bird Form", blue in "Field Form", and red in "Insect Form". While Bird Form and Field Form are aesthetically similar, Insect Form actually differs greatly, with protruding horns out of the helmet. Eyes are Red, with a green base color.

-Belt has a signal display

Rumor: GoseiKnight's Robo, GoseiGrand, GoseiWonder

GoseiWonder, the creative remodeling of GoseiDragon and its combine with the other core machines.
New Toy Catalogue info:

DX Tensou Gattai GoseiGrand
Releases in- July
Price- 6,800 yen

GoseiGrandeon (Lion-motif, Black Armored Vehicle), GoseiSealeon (Lion-motif, Blue battleship), and GoseiSkyleon (Lion-motif, Red-Fighter/Rocketship) combine into GoseiGrand. Grandeon forms most of the bot, with Sealeon and Skyleon forming the legs/feet. Can combine with GoseiGreat to form Grand GoseiGreat.

The Grandeon Headder is transformed from GoseiKnight. This Headder has a four step transformation. Transforms from GoseiKnight to GrandeonHeadder, then to the Head of GoseiGrand, and then the Head of Grand GoseiGreat.

Grand GoseiGreat is formed by the following:

Grand's arms, formed from Grandeon, are attached under Great's feet as clogs. The rest of Grandeon attaches on top of GoseiGreat's body to make the new chest, increasing the height massively. Sealeon and Skyleon become the new arms. Shark and Pheonix attach on top of sealeon and skyleon to make shoulders. The Snake and Tiger Headders attach to the sides of the arms just under that. DragonHeadder moves up to attach to the new chest.

DX Tensou Gattai GoseiWonder:
Releases in- August
Price- 5,000 yen

A recolor mecha for the movie. However it is something a bit different from past recolors. The main mecha sold with the set is a blue recolor of GoseiDragon, except with a new Headder- the Bird Headder. The other Headders in the set include:

Wani Headder (Black Crocodile)

Zou Headder (Yellow Elephant)

Iruka Headder (Blue Dolphin)

Kabuto Headder (White/Tea-colored Beetle)

To form GoseiWonder, GoseiBird (temp) a remodeled blue GoseiDragon utilizes the other 4 core mecha (GoseiPhoenix, Snake, Tiger and Shark) and replaces their Headders with these new ones, color coded of course. Instead of a sword, Bird's tail forms a giant axe weapon.

Price- 6,000 yen
Release- N/A

Transforms the Goseiger into SuperGoseiger. Seems to control/imimate Grand GoseiGreat's weaponry/finisher. One side is a sword, and the other is a gem/dome. The Headders can be stored in this dome, and can spin and shine. The Tensouder is stored at the front of the grip.

Super Goseiger (SH figs):

The Super Goseiger have golden armor on their shoulders, arm and chest, forming a Saint Cross. The chest designs emulate the Headders.

New Digimon Series

Revealed through Gashapon, the series is currently labeled as "New Digimon Animation", but the title is obviously temporary. We know the following:
-There will be a goggle boy, pictured there. He is not confirmed as the only Tamer, and I expect more. Even if we are in for a "V-Tamer" situation, I still expect more human characters to show up.
-The lead digimon include:
Shoutmon (the red dino in the headphones).
Dorurumon (The horned tiger/lion)
Baristamon (The Beetle)
Greymon (a blue version, meaning virus. His look has been updated as well. Looking at the sillouhette pic, he has a tail-axe, and seems to be the villain, at least to start, for the series.)
Monitormon (The TV-Set)
-Shoutmon is able to combine with the other digimon to form the Omegamon-esque, Shoutmon X4 (Cross 4), and in super-robot tradition, I expect for there to be many more combinations. The mascot characters (The Star w/shades and the other little dudes) form its sword, which I like, a lot.
-The series, much like Ganbaride and Dice-Oh, will have a gaming component. These figures can link up to Bandai's "AR Colliseum" allowing for you to battle your friends with your action figures. I assume the digivices this year will also utilize these figures in some way.
-The only unexplained digimon is the bunny-type riding on top of Dorurumon. Possible partner digimon for another tamer?
I would propose that the digimon "gattai" situation is not done for fun and marketing only. If I had to guess, there's probably an adventure-02 problem where the digimon cannot evolve on their own, and thus, need to combine to evolve further. While Shoutmon and Baristamon look to be child level, Dorurumon certainly does not, but I guess that could just be a misconception. It'd be interesting if the gattai was at the Adult Level though.

July Goseiger Gashapon

Although small, there are images of HyperGoseiGreat and GoseiKnight.
