Galaxyroid Cosmo X (1-3)

DDL

3-part video series starring Tomokazu Seki, released by VAP Video in 2001. Apologies for the quality being lower than usual. The tapes had a weird copy protection scheme that prevented me from recording them the usual way, so I had to use a low-grade video capture device.

Masked Rider AMC [Eng]

…Masked Rider what?

Okay, this is gonna be a long post. Tl;dr is that it has no relation to Masked Rider. It’s ̶u̶̶n̶known under a ridiculous amount of titles, among them Power King, Power Warriors, Outlaw Power, Armicron, Armicron in Outlaw Power, Armicron – Savior from Space… are we done yet?

Originally made by Korean director Shim Hyung-rae (known for Dragon Wars and the godawful 1999 Yonggary remake) as a direct-to-video movie in 1995. A year later, it was picked up by American distributors to capitalize on the Power Rangers craze. Instead of just dubbing the movie, they went the Saban way and only kept the special FX scenes, everything else was reshot with American actors. Years later, it was released on DVD in Hong Kong – in classic bootleg tradition – under the name Masked Rider AMC.

But what else is there? Hilariously inept acting, even worse dubbing, braindead dialogue, bullies that make Bulk & Skull look like intellectuals, stolen character designs, stolen plotlines, and tons of stock footage. In short, it’s a forgotten gem of the VHS era!

This is supposedly the same person. We’ll just hope the viewers can’t tell Asians apart.
