Are you getting that big bull

Are you getting that big bull one? The robot and bull mode on its own look decent but the final combo is one of the biggest cluster $%&#@ I've ever seen in a sentai because they literarily took whatever and stuck it on without regarding if it looks good compare to something like the original Ultrazord which recycled it's parts extremely well.

I wouldn't get it for many

I wouldn't get it for many of those reasons. It's also a $150 brick without S&H.

You know, I Just bought the

You know, I Just bought the American version of this toy and despite all the electronics and disc gimmicks being cut out of it, I still love it. He looks awesome in either mode and the changing faces and weapons gimmick is neat. Plus the lobster mode being HUGE is nice.

Genta did not create Ika. Ika

Genta did not create Ika. Ika was a gift from Takeru. Please correct it.

Some more thoughts

I can see the hilts of the swords in the Minami face, at least.

The Kita face just makes me think "Prepare to meet... Mister Angry Eyes!"

"Are those supposed to be cannons above the knuckles?" That's certainly what they look like. They're probably a feature that Plex designed but then forgot to really make use of. It happens now and again - Black Gammer and Yellow Kumard from Kakuranger never actually used the Gammer Bow and Kumard Claw (they were at least seen readying them in the fight with Tengu, but didn't actually get to wield them), the Saurer Buster finisher from Zyuranger (seen in some promotional material) went completely unused...

"what the hell kind of weapon is that if it isn’t a very poorly designed spear?" Well, that's exactly what it is - a spear (yariika is "squid spear", not just "squid"). A spear that in toy form Ika Daikai-Oh can't properly wield but instead only awkwardly hold by a handle. It's the Dragon Antler/Power Staff allll over again. Bandai's desire for bulky polearms does not mix well with their neglect of articulation.

Oh, a bit of an oversight: You neglected to say what size battery it takes. For those wondering, it's size LR44/ size 357 (Same size, different material) button cell batteries and you need two.
