Royal Jokers?

I don't believe but it happened, Bushiroad actually did it. Blaster Blade has fallen to Void, but not only has he been Reversed, no no, that wasn't enough. Blaster Blade has been assimilated intothe Star-Vaders themselves. Introducing Blaster Joker.

I'm guessing this means that Binary Star got the boot.

But it's not just Blaster Blade that's turned to Link Joker. From Blaster Blade's Memories it seems that Link Joker acquired the data it needed to create clones of some of Blaster Blade's comrades from Royal Paladin.

Subjugated by The Clown's latest toy, a Berserker System, Blaster Blade and his Cyber Clones exsist now solely to destroy.

Star-Vader, Brave Fang
[AUTO]: Forerunner (When a unit of the same clan rides this unit, you may call this unit to (RC))
[AUTO](RC):[Put this unit into your soul] When an attack hits a vanguard during the battle that this unit boosted, if your vanguard is in Legion, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose up to two of your opponent's locked cards, and those cards cannot be unlocked during your opponent's next end phase.

Wingal is a victim of this Berserk Clone system and his Double would probably love nothing more than to sink his teeth into him. Except he can't feel plesure or enjoyment as the Berserker System only allows it's host to feel rage and nothing else.

Silence Star-Vader, Dilation
[AUTO]:When this unit is placed on (RC), if your vanguard is in Legion, and the number of locked cards your opponent has is two or more, search your deck for up to one card named "Star-Vader, Blaster Joker", reveal it to your opponent, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck.

Gallatin's clone has a similar lare to Wingal's clone and his purpose is generally the same. Strange then that this clone ends up having a variation on a trumpeter skill instead of being a vanilla. On that we can safely assume based on this that Link Joker are not cloning Star-Call Trumpeter.

What's obvious though is that these two cards will not both work together in the same turn unless these Paladin Jokers have some type of superior call gimmick, but that isn't something Link Joker needs and I certain very few of us would actually welcome it.

With Seeker Alfred already confirmed for the film how plausable is it Link Joker will get an Alfred clone in the same set? I wouldn't like to say but then again, Strongest and Deadliest Ethics Buster were released in the same set.

I will be honest in saying though, I have concerns that we may not get the Movie Boosters in English, atleast not as Movie Boosters. Maybe as Extra Boosters but I doubt we'll have an English dub of the movie.

Even if we did, with the current quality of of the English dub for the series, that would be horrible in a movie. No thanks.

Anyway, that covers the new reveals I guess, not something I intend to do except for when something catches my eyes. In this case, the trigger that caught my attention was Brave Fang. Instantly recognised it as Wingal and wanted to know "why?"

All the details are on the cardfight wiki of you want to look at the lores, also the reaction over there is quite funny. I'm not providing a link as frankly if you care enough about Vanguard to stumble across this blog, then you should know the wiki already.
