This brave (but cute) band of five nigirizushi sushi raw fish and three makizushi sushi rolls will protect the ocean! Takara Tomy's awesome series of transforming sushi is here to save the day as a full set of all eight warriors. Yes, behold the Sushi Transformers Sentai Squadron Schallyders Syrariders!
Remember it was Takara Tomy who made the original Transformers franchise with Hasbro, and here the same principle has been applied to Japan's most famous culinary export.
Just press down on the fish slice (or the button in the roll) and watch these mini meals transform into rangers! The sushi can change into armed soldiers and use their fish slice as a shield, with a mini soy sauce bottle as a gun!
This is a complete set of five regular nigirizushi sushi (tuna, shrimp, egg, salmon, mackerel) and three makizushi sushi rolls (natto, kappa, tekka), allowing you to stage full battles for the seas.
If you're a fan of Japanese cuisine you should get some of the details here. Not only do the sushi have their Kanji characters on their heads, there are some jokes too. For example, since you don't put soy sauce on egg sushi, the Syrarider doesn't have a soy sauce bottle gun but the special grill pan used to make the sweet omelet in a Japanese restaurant. The name "Schallyders" is also a pun, since "shari" is the type of rice used to make sushi. But if the trivia passes over your head, don't worry. Just enjoy playing with the warriors!
