First pictures of Kyoryuger emerge from Japan!

The first photos of Jyuden Sentai Kyoryuger have emerged on 2ch. They are blurry, but they help to convey the gist of it. Here are the photos along with what can be inferred from it:

The Kyoryuger Sentai consists of Red, Blue, Black, Green, and Pink, eschewing the more traditional Yellow this time.

The logo has an electrical arc around it. Additionally, the logo appears to have a train running through it.

The helmets appear to have nods to both original dinosaur sentai, Zyuranger and Abaranger, but the face plates are more reminiscent of Dekaranger in style. Each of the characters appear to wear a sash across one shoulder which reminds me quite a bit of Worf from Star Trek: The Next Generation. The zig-zag pattern appears once again, which not only is a nod to the zig-zag patterns featured by tribal characters in Zyuranger and Gingaman, on the yellow field, it looks like arcing lightning bolts or electrical current. I also can't help but see that it looks like the e-mail envelope which appears on the Megaranger suits. Green's helmet reminds me a lot of Vul Shark from Sun Vulcan.

It's difficult to tell from this blurry picture, but there appears to be only one female character, which is quite common in Super Sentai. The dinosaur train running through the text "Jyuden Sentai" is appropriate, since "densha" is the word for train (lit: electrical wheel). A dinosaur Shinkansen? Could this be a strange mixture of something like Kamen Rider Den-O's Denliner and Super Sentai?

Keep in mind that these photos are extremely blurry and extremely new, within literal hours of posting on 2ch. It's way too early to know much of anything about this, but more on it as it develops.
