Review: Zyuden Mobuckle Kyoryu Gold Ver. (Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger)
Zyuden Mobuckle Kyoryu Gold Ver.
Retail Release – May, 2013 – ¥2,600
The Mobuckle was a return to the Sentai buckle toys after a brief reprieve during Go-Busters. This is Kyoryu Gold’s version of the Mobuckle, which is a straight up re-sticker of the original Mobuckle. It was released in May, 2013 along with the other Gold toys for ¥2,800. The Mobuckle is used as a cell phone and PDA device for the Kyoryugers. Unfortunately all we get with this is a blank screen with the logo on it, the default picture of the Mobuckle when it is on their belts. The device can open up and store three Zyudenchi inside. Included is the Deinosgrander Zyudenchi, which activates a new “Arm On” weapon for any of the Kyoryugers. It activates new sounds in the Gaburevolver and Kyoryuzin. However, the Zyudenchi can’t actually be used in an “Arm On” combination, despite the function in the show. While it does exactly what a Sentai buckle should, it being a phone device, it’s a shame there isn’t any electronics, or at least swappable screen plates for added role play for the kids. Still an alright toy for the price, especially on sale, and the Deinosgrander Zyudenchi is pretty awesome.
