On September 27, 2023, Bandai announced the beginning of Judgement Time with the next item in its Memorial Edition line of Super Sentai transformation devices, the SP License from Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger.
Change Standby! Roger! Emergency! Dekaranger!
To coincide with the 20th anniversary of 2003’s Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger, Bandai is releasing the SP License Memorial Edition. The changer is available on Premium Bandai’s website until November 24, 2023 and costs ¥11,000 (tax included). Bandai expects shipment to start in March 2024.
The space and police themed series used the Space Patrol License to change into their suits, as a communicator, and as a way to quickly judge criminals in the field. The American adaptation Power Rangers SPD also used the SP License. The SP License Memorial Edition comes with 5 license sheets, one for Deka Red, Blue, Pink, Green and Yellow which can be swapped in and out of the License. It also comes with a waist mounted license holder.
In Change Mode, users can select between three different BGM modes: “Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger (TV Size),” “Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger (Full),” and “Emergency Transformation! Dekaranger.”
In Cast Mode, users may play a roll call from one of each of the five members of the original Dekaranger squad. Additionally, there is a Shutter Mode and a Call Mode which plays various voice lines from the rangers.
In Judge Mode, users can decide the fate of the combatants and choose innocent or guilty, a feature first seen in 2017’s release in the Super Sentai Artisan series. Users can also select charges for the assailant and even order them to be deleted.
The SP License is not scheduled to be released outside of Japan. Overseas fans can use From Japan to purchase exclusive tokusatsu merchandise. Click here for our guide to using From Japan.
