This review is for Bandai Premium Fashion’s Gokai Yellow/Luka Millfy official jacket from Gokaiger. It originally retailed for 25,000 yen and was released in 2011.
It comes in one size only, women’s medium. When new, it includes an extra button, a fabric swatch and an exclusive apparel version Gokai Yellow ranger key.
This jacket is 100% wool and is a distinctive mustard color. The braided trim (also wool) is an olive green. Replicas of this jacket often fail to accurate represent the colors, which are very muted on the official. The wool fabric is high quality and thick, but like all wool requires additional care and is dry clean only.
Like other Gokaiger jackets, one of the most distinctive features of this jacket is the official buttons. Each brass button is imprinted with the Gokaiger logo, and this jacket has a total of 10 buttons and (if new) one spare. Aside from Marvelous’ jacket and vest, Luka’s jacket has the most buttons from this series.
One nice touch you often find on Sentai jackets is the special inside tag. This jacket is no exception and the tag commemorates the season as well as the anniversary.
This jacket meets my expectations in every way. In terms of fabric and stitching quality, it exceeds expectations. My only quibble about this jacket is that the design is a bit uninspired: without the special buttons it would be plain. However, we have seen this general jacket design repeated now for a couple Sentai yellows, so maybe it should be better described as classic. Overall, I would recommend this jacket to any fan of Luka or Gokaiger.
