Hey everyone. I think this kind of topic is kosher but if there's a problem, I'd be happy to hear from one of the mods here so we can make things cool. :sweat:
My name is Brad and I work at Mega Bloks in Montreal, Canada as a community manager. I'm also the resident tokusatsu fan, with a soft spot for Kamen Rider -- Kiva and OOO in particular. If you don't believe me, just check out my desk:
I joined here for two reasons.
- To get to know other tokusatsu fans, which I've never really done outside of Tumblr and circles of friends.
- To hopefully discuss our new toyline, Power Rangers Samurai.
I'll keep the corporate stuff to a minimum to avoid leaving a bad taste in anyone's mouth, so I'll just say that this stuff is pretty cool. The Lion, Ape and Dragon Folding Zords, along with the Samurai Megazord are all available in select Toys R Us in the USA right now, with a full North American launch coming in February and more countries thereafter.
This isn't the first time we've had a license like this, either; we did a few Power Rangers in the US before and also had the license to Kamen Rider in Japan, for which we made a handful of very cool sets featuring the original KR and Faiz.
One of our Halo figs on a bike from Faiz ...
Some Ninja Storm figs.
Anyway, I think these toys are really cool and I hope you will check them out. We're releasing more and more weapons, accessories, equipment etc. with the hopes that you will all customize your Rangers and Zords and hopefully show them to us!
Thanks for checking this out.
Also of note:
We're currently running a contest called Countdown to 2012 that gives you the chance to win our entire PR Samurai Spring 2012 line-up before it even hits store shelves! All you have to do is answer some quizzes/trivia about PR Samurai, which will no doubt be very easy for hardcore fans like you.
I hope you will all check it out.
Thanks for the sticky!!
Members, don't forget to check out the Mega Bloks Samurai contest page daily. There is a new daily puzzle until the end of the year.

Neat, if you didn't say these were official, I would have thought you made them yourself.
Will there be Super Samurai products for the Spring release?
Wow, these are actually nicer than some of the Bandai US products.
Honestly, Brad, you got my sale the moment you used the term Tokusatsu. Excellent sales tact!
those look really good...
lol, Ninja Storm blue looks like the Gokaiger version (male)!
