The year is 2011. Bandai and Toei have just finished what might have been the most successful season in their merchandise-driven cash cow, if not in terms of viewership, then surely in terms of toy sales. The 35th Anniversary of the Super Sentai franchise was immensely popular, and its gimmick would ensure toy sales for the future of the series for years to come. There was only one problem now.
The 36th Super Sentai. It had to happen.
I still can’t get over the fact that they’re keeping that butt-ugly Gold Mode power-up for Orion.
Not to mention he looks a lot better with the Hanson hair.
And here I thought I was the only one who thought Gold Mode was hideous.
