Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger mini-pla GokaiOh CLEAR VERSION


As the Gokaiger merchandise draws to close (save for ranger keys and a few other things), it's only fitting that one of my final purchases is of a toy that was also my very first piece of Gokaiger merchandise. This clear plastic version of the GokaiOh mini-pla/candy toy figure was released as a web exclusive last month, and featured all five Gokai machines in one large box covered in some great pictures of its contents (no candy included this time though).

However this isn't quite the same toy that I reviewed almost a year ago, and is in fact the enhanced 'Starburst' edition that was released later in 2011. This version not only came with a far better cannon piece for the chest, but also had the Gokai Jet, Marine and Racer all moulded in their correct colours (meaning significantly less sticker work). Having never seen this version in person before, it was nice to see that it improved some of the minor issues with the stickers on the original (such as four silver blade stickers for the swords rather than two). In addition to being entirely made of clear plastic, all of the stickers are foil.

I'm not going to give a full review of the figure again, because the GokaiOh mini-pla was excellent and the Starburst version only improved it further, so instead I leave you with an extensive image gallery. This exclusive version might not be to everyone's tastes, but if you're a fan of clear plastic toys I highly recommend seeking one out at a decent price.
