This set is huge. I had to expand my photography background both in width and height in order to fit this monstrosity. I think this is a case where bigger is not always better.
The Terminal looks really good. It has places to hold full trains with room to spare. It is clear this is where we really go off the tracks in the show for realism, since we have a train terminal that can convert into a massive locomotive. I am not saying the rest of the Super Sentai series is real, but with the rest of the Ressha, at least they could travel around Japan on already used tracks, until they use their flying tracks to fight.
It is clear to see just how big Hyper Ressha is with ToQ-Oh standing by it.
With all five trains on board full length with room to spare. This thing really is a terminal.
It is clear that the smaller Hyper Ressha is meant for great things. It has quite a formation for later use.
A lot of folding, and the Terminal turns into Hyper Ressha for Hyper ToQ 1gou, late in the series. The front end looks great. It is a powerful locomotive, with great colors, and guns to boot. We get a bit of a problem in the back half, where it is just open air back there. I do not like that part.
Hyper Ressha has a spot of honor on top of Hyper Ressha. it just sits there in the groove. There are lock in ports all over this thing, but this is not one of them. I really would have liked to see this lock into place.
The front end of Hyper Ressha is fantastic. There are so many great details here.
A few changes here and there, stand him up, and you have Hyper Ressha Henkei Hyper Ressha TeiOh. I am not fond of this mode. he is pretty much a chunk of plastic with stubby moving arms. This is a display piece more than anything. The playability here is very low.
This guy is sizable, standing a whole head taller than ToQ-Oh.
One more mode with another transformation similar to standing the Terminal on it’s end and adding lots of Ressha and we get the Hyper Ressha Gattai ToQ Rainbow. This is it. All that the ToQgers can throw at the bad guys. He is the grand master of all Ressha. I still have a few Ressha missing from my collection, so there are some blank spots in his body, but you get the gist of what is going on. The front cars of all of the Ressha help to combine this guy.
He is a little more pleasing to the eye than the Hyper Ressha Henkei Hyper Ressha TeiOh, but he is still blocky. At least he has longer arms, and you can play around with the Ressha on him.
Overall, this is a Ressha you will want to get only if you intend to collect the whole line. If you are after the smaller Ressha alone, you may want to go with the candy version. You will save a lot of money and space. I don’t know where I am going to put this guy. I really like the Terminal conversion the best, but it takes up a lot of real estate. The Hyper Ressha conversion is good too, and I may have to keep him in that mode most of the time to save space.
