Despite the fact Sentai releases are relatively rare, Tamashii Nations thought it would be an awesome Christmas present to release Gokai X’mas (Gokai Christmas for people not offended by the word Christmas…) as an S.H.Figuarts release. Sure, he was only in one episode as a Christmas special, but hey, let’s do it anyway! Gokai Christmas was the form Gai (Gokai Silver) took when he used his magical powers to combine the Gokai Red and Gokai Green Ranger Keys. As you would expect, it’s a split between Red and Green’s suit right down the middle ala Kamen Rider Double. I love the way the head sculpt looks, Red and Green’s visors are similar enough for it to not look weird, but different enough to make your eye play weird tricks on you and make it really cool. There is no paint bleeding anywhere on the figure, so the split is done nice and clean. He comes packed with the Gokai Gun, Gokai Saber, the Gokai Christmas Ranger Key in Ranger Mode and Key Mode, alternate Gokai Cylinders with Ranger Keys inserted, and eight additional hands. For his ¥3,675 price tag, he’s not really worth it. If you can find him in the after market for a decent price, he’s actually a great figure! I really like the Gokaiger mold, and this one is no exception. If you really like the Gokai Christmas concept, or want a cool S.H.F. to put in a Christmas display on your fireplace or something antique like that, then by all means go for it. Gooooookai! Christmas!

  1. Will he be ‘Christmas Ranger’ in PRM perhaps? 🙂
