Some sentai realize that, in order to better fight evil, they must prepare their allies by assisting them in branching out. Thus, Henshin Boosters were made. A henshin booster is a small item, usually a card, focusing crystal, or similar, that can amplify a Sentai's arsenal.
Each Henshin booster contains a Suit ability, which anyone with the Henshin class feature may use. A character can use a maximum of three Henshin Boosters each day, and each booster can only be used for five rounds a day, split as desired.
While using a Henshin Booster, the character gains the Sentai Ability contained. Activating a henshin booster is a free action, as is deactivating one,but activating it consumes one of the rounds available. If a Henshin booster provides an ability requiring another Sentai ability, the character must have the required Sentai ability, either from Sentai levels or through another Henshin Booster.
A sentai determines the effects of a Henshin Booster that scales by taking their sentai level, -5. A non-sentai who activates a Henshin Booster (such as by using Use Magic Device, or with a henshin license) treats their sentai level as 1/2 of their HD.
Henshin Boosters vary in price based on the required sentai level for the ability contained, as seen on the below table.
Required level/CL of item|Price|Aura
1|1,000 gp|Moderate Transmutation
3|3,000 gp|Moderate Transmutation

When sentai stop to think about things for a few days, they realize that they cannot always be there to help, and that their powers might not always be there.
Working with expert artificers, they came up with a solution- the Henshin License. Allowing non-sentai to take a form similar to that of a true sentai, though at a reduced power.
As a full-round action, a character who owns a Henshin License may take on a hero-suit like form for a number of rounds equal to half their level, plus their charisma modifier, which obscures their physical characteristics and allows them to use henshin boosters. The default Henshin License gives armor equivalent to a masterwork chain shirt, not included in the price, but others might give armor equivalent to full-plate, or any other type of armor, including magical armor, which adjusts the price appropriately. While using a Henshin License, a character gains their charisma modifier as a Deflection bonus to AC, and may make unarmed attacks as though they had Improved Unarmed Strike. If they have Improved Unarmed Strike, they treat their unarmed damage as though it were one die larger than it is.
A Henshin License may only be used 3 times each day.
Strong Transmutation; CL 11th; Craft Wondrous Item, creator must have the Henshin class feature, alter self; Price 20,000 gp, plus cost of armor used
The crystalization of a Sentai's abilities and willpower, a Henshin Record is typicaly a small figurine of the Sentai's costumed form or a card with the picture of the costumed form on it. By default, only a Sentai who still has their powers can use a Henshin Record, though a small number of magical tools have been crafted to allow non-sentai to use them.
A Henshin Record contains the complete abilities of a Sentai's costume- their archetype, Sentai Abilities, and other class features are stored in it, even including their maneuvers or formulae known and readied or prepared at the time the Record was made. When a Sentai uses a Henshin Record, they lose access to their own abilities, but gain access to those of the assumed costume, gaining the abilities of it that corrospond to their level.
Any Sentai may create a Henshin Record, but doing so consumes 200 xp per character level and causes them to lose their powers, as detailed in Ex-Sentai. They may not use their own Henshin Record for a year and a day after they sacrifice their powers to form it.
