Review: Morphin Brace – Buster Gear Series 01 (Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters)


It’s rare when a Sentai Changer debuts and absolutely blows me away the first time I see it. Well, the Morphin Brace did. I was intrigued by the design, the glasses concept, as well the design in general, being in a spy motif. I managed to snag one from AmiAmi in the wee hours of the morning, and I have to say, it delivers. The look of the toy is great. It fits in the futuristic spy motif, has all the details from the show, and some pretty fun functions. To change functions you turn the dial, and to activate, you push the button. You swap between “Go-Busters!”, Call Mode (15 Buddyroid Phrases), “Let’s Driving!”, Analyze Mode, “It’s Time for Buster!” (Final Attack Mode), and Game Mode. There is also a Special Mode when you spin the dial a bunch, that says one of seven random phrases. Press the button on the front to activate “It’s Morphin’ Time!” and press again to hear the transformation sound. The device sits on a plastic strap that can fit most wrists, but your milage may very on that. There honestly isn’t anything I would change for this toy. It’s been a while (since Shinkenger) that we’ve gotten a device that lets us play with all of the features right out of the box. No buying random items to get more gimmicks. It’s all here. No unlocking, no gimmicks, just right out of the box fun. The last time we’ve had a team Brace Changer was Abaranger, and that was 2003! Of course, we did get some along the line, like the Brace Throttle, GoGo Changer, Gong Changer, and the Shift Changer, but it’s been a long time since we’ve seen the base team use a brace. If you’re a fan, I see no reason to skip this. It’s a fun little changer filled with a lot of sounds, a sleek look, and all around fun. Highly, highly recommended.
