New robot TV series features ultimate 12-man transformer

Engine Oh G12 is a new transformer TV series that’s super hot in Japan right now. In this clip, a dozen normal-sized motor vehicle robots transform into an indestructible giant mecha with a 12-man cockpit. Even if you can’t understand what they’re saying, the visuals are amazing. Engine Oh G12 is actually part of a series called Engine Sentai Go-onger, and premiered on TV Asahi last February.

  1. Looks like my studying has finally paid off and I can now at least watch/understand TV shows for kids.
    Yeah, I thought this was some new Power Ranger show and not Transformers. Still, looks like a good way to push the merchandising on the kids. I counted numerous items.

  2. This is not a new show, its the latest series of Super Sentai. Power Rangers is originally a Japanese show which Disney buys the footage for, cuts out all the asian actors and re-films it with American ones. They also change the story, and make the whole thing so very much more cheesy lol. You’ll see this robot in ‘Power Rangers: RPM’ this year.
    This season – ‘Engine Sentai Go-Onger’ – is nearly over, and the next season starts in Febuary (with a samurai theme). If you are interested in watching the Japanese version with subtitles you can over at
    P.S. If you were interested, the first season from our childhood, ‘Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers’ was originally ‘Kyoryu Sentai Zyu Ranger’.

  3. I can’t believe how many people actually thought this was a completely new show. Did they not even GOOGLE the term before writing articles?
    Yes, this is just one robot from the show Power Rangers is derived from – the last one from that season. 4 Megazords, 3 component Zords each; put ’em all together and what do you get? In the US it’s called the RPM Ultrazord.
    If you haven’t seen Power Rangers RPM, check it out. Let me put it this way: the bad guys already won, and that’s the *premise.*
