Lord Zedd is pretty cool. I'm looking forward to Goldar.What other villians would you like to see made?
I've got some mediocre shots of the Dinozord releases if anyones interested. 90s, Legacy and SoC lines
>>7560751The more they perfect the design the less fun it becomes.
>>7560749Rita and Rito
>>7560749>What other villians would you like to see made?I hope they give us Rita and the rest of her henchmen, Rito, Mesogog, Fury, Wrench, Poisandra, Curio, and Blaze.
>>7560796Eh, the Chogokin is plenty playable; if anything that comes at the expense of how good it could’ve been. Paint chipping and looseness overtime is the only fear to be had with playing with it as a Toy
I’d like to see Grumm from SPD with an alt screaming head missing both horns & an Astronima. She had several different hairstyles but truly I only want her red short hair with the cyborg bits
>>7560814>Grumm from SPDBrooding would be cool too.
>>7560796The thing I like most about the Chogokin line is the detail they gave the 5 Base Zords. They all seem to be good individuals units I enjoy displaying on their own, instead of the Megazord
>>7560749Rita Repulsa, Rito Revolto, Squatt, Baboo, Finster from MMPR. Putties and Tenga too.Oh and Astronema and this fucker.
>>7560848I really want to see them jump between seasons for villains. I can see Rita being made early but after that I hope they jump around. I would hope Ecliptor would be high on the list of villains.
>>7560749The rest from this image
I want to see villains who've never received figures. We've had a hundred Zedds so that one is very meh to me. Goldar has also had numerous toys over the years. Give me someone new. Scorpina, any of the Machine Empire, Maligore/Dark Specter, etc. The LC character selection in general has been very underwhelming to me.
>>7560749I would buy Scorpina in a fucking heartbeat.
haven't paid too much attention to them but how tall are the godzilla vinyl figures compared to lightning collection?
>>7560909Source for this awesome concept artwork?
>>7560990Gimme a bit and I'll take a photo with LC Zedd alongside NECA '54 Goji, vinyl GMK Goji and Mechagodzilla, and Ultra 500 Antlar.
>>7561034It's a damn awesome book of all the viallins in Sentai History up to a point (Gokaiger I think). It's in a mega link on the first post of the /ssg/ post on the /m/ board. Very much worth a download. It makes every one of them look worthy of a toy.
>>7560749Eye Guy and the skeleton man

>>7561205This is just Ridley.
>>7561032So what's the best cheap option for a Pink Ranger?
>>7561358reading the OP
Finally secured Zedd on Amazon!
I don't suppose anyone would know a paint that matches the LC Tommy head? I've got a great body for a civilian custom but the skin tone doesn't match.
>>7562439Why does he look so greasy?
>>7562451The plastic used doesn't photograph well. The head looks much better in person.
>>7562451The face printing they use does make the parts printed look shiny in some cases. I feel like Dino Charge Red's is pretty bad in certain lighting.
>>7561045I left GMK out because he and Mechagodzilla were nearly the same height.
>>7562709I thought GMK was the one without pupils
>>7562717Right. I kept the NECA '54 Goji and vinyl Mechagodzilla in, but left out vinyl GMK Goji because he was the same size as Mechagodzilla.
>>7562451He's a cis white male
>>7560909>mfw i have a traffic light growing out of my back
>>7562750OH! I misread that as like, you didn't put him away; not left him out of the shot.
>>7562075Mine comes in Friday. Finally got one as well after checking over and over. Hopefully the order doesn't cancel out though. One store near me has almost 10 White Rangers, 3 Red and 2 Shadow.
>>7563079I've passed on three Tylers now due to shitty paint. Only have seen one Shadow, which I also passed on due to shitty paint, and one White, which was actually decent enough to buy.
>>7563099for me the targets have been pretty bare, its the walmarts that are well stocked.
Gamestop took payment for zedd and shadow, i am hoping they ship them today. Already snagged the other two at retail
Anyone here comin down to Rangerstop ATL?
>>7563578I was considering it but then plane tickets are fucking astronomically expensive for some reason
>>7560749I’d be pretty surprised if they never made Rita, Finster, Scorpina, Baboo, Squatt, and Rito, if only because MMPR is such a goldmine. And ecliptor, Astronema, and psychos also seem obvious.But I’d love an emperor grumm, mesogog, zeltrax, and I liked Dekers design a lot even though I never watched Samurai. This also doesn’t count evil Rangers. Psychos, DesthRyuger, Titanium, Thunder Rangers, Drakkon, Blaze and Roxy, we’ll get all of those too I’m sure.
>>7564775Deker has a kick ass SHF.I would rather have a Xandred and some moogers. It's a long stretch, but a Dayu would be absolutely amazing, too.
>>7560749YEAR OF THE CHOOCHOO TOGQGER
Fuck! Does any one know where to get a super mini pla dino megazord for under $100
>>7565473I wish they'd re-release it and the Dragonzord.
>>7563355Update:got my shadow ranger, zedd is out of stock at their warehouse so who knows if I will ever get one. They already charged me for zedd. Not pre-ordering from gamestop unless its an exclusive
>>7565473>>7565513it kills me they are so rare. They could make so much bank if they rereleased themAlso, make the Thunderzords as minipla models. It kills me we have all the Mighty Morphin beside them
>>7566224Vision loss? What happened anon?
>>7565473late tax bucko
>>7566433Must be weird having /toy/ open and zoomed in so large that people outside could look in and read the replies with ease.
>>7566191I managed to get Megazord when amiami clearanced a set that had expired candy. It's really weird because I've never seen them do that for candy toys but at 35 bucks I wasn't gonna say no. I was too late for Dragonzord though so I have no reason to pick up Titanus until I can get a DZ kit.
>>7566191Part of me really wants them to do Thunderzords, but it will just end up annoying me when TMZ is unnecessarily oversized compared to every other Zord like he always is.
>>7566433Damn, sorry bro. Hopefully things work out better for you. I work for a boss who's also dealt with glaucoma all his life, you may want to look at the magnifier tool for Windows if you haven't already. It's how he deals with it. But then if you're already replying here you most likely have.
anyone who slept on Zedd, he's up on BBTS again
>>7560749I like him overall, but his feet are so little and weird looking.
>finally get a zedd from amazon>shitty paint apps from head to toe
>>7567905Mine has a silver dot/blemish right on the visor. It's the only one I've ever found in the wild so I'll live with him, otherwise he's excellent in every other way.
>>7567905mine has some slight paint bleed from the armor onto the thighs, be easy to paint over though. Still happy I was finally able to get him, even came a day earlier than the expected delivery date. Though legs seems a bit looser than I would of liked.
>>7567944Mine has the same thing. I found a new one at gamestop last night so I'm gonna send my other one back to hasbro.
WHY IS LORD ZEDD SO HARD TO FUCKING FIND.FUCK.
>>7569167Because he's the first, best interpretation of a beloved character.
>>7567756He's an awesome figure, but yea, the feet REALLY throw me off since they're so small and dainty compared to his muscular frame.I don't remember seeing his feet in the show, so maybe it's accurate? I dont know...but yea, kinda throws it off for me too.
>>7569196gotta cut corners somewhere
>>7569167He's one per case
I lost count of how many Shadows and Tylers I've had to pass on until finally finding a decent enough pair today. Saw this nice gem alongside them though. Oh and my Tyler's left arm is stuck like many have reported, but hopefully I can fix that with some heat. The LC has some of the worst QC I've ever seen. Hasbro really needs to up their game in future waves.
>>7569961Hopefully the second wave and Goldar don't have these kinds of QC issues.
>>7561205Thank you very much. Awesome book, is there a equivalent for the heroes and their mechs?
>>7570077Thing is you'd think they'd want to put their best foot forward when launching a new line, so these having so many problems right out of the gate is worrisome. I'm not confident it gets any better.
>>7561205Did anybody ever do scans of the Metal Heroes monster book?
Getting Shadow in hand I see that his boot armor are separate overlays. I'm feeling tempted to buy another and remove the chest/boot armor for an unmorphed look.
>>7569167Because I buy it.
>>7569167I finally found one at Gamestop yesterday, then my friend texted me and said he found two and bought one for me. They're getting out there now. Like >>7567485 said, BBTS put him up again so now's the time to order if you want to nab one for sure.
>Local walmart down to a lone Shadow on the pegs>>no restockSware if have to wait on the basics to sell too gonna freakIs a shot at an OC villain and a funny dinosaur man too much to ask
Think there's any chance the team-up could give us Putties/Triptoids/Vivix in the main line? $10 army builders sure are nice.
>>7571069Neat idea. I got one that was poorly painted in the head and chest from Amazon, so they sent me another free. That one had poor paint on the other parts, so I swapped the vest, head, and accessories then exchanged the faulty one for DC Red. Be warned that the vests take some work to get off, but it is totally doable. I just worked it back and forth slowly over the torso and popped off the hands to ensure they didn't snag on the way off.
>>7570739just go to ssg
Found a Shadow Ranger and I like him a lot.The ratchets in the ankles seems kinda off though. Is that just me?
>>7575788Nope, mine are weird too, the entire figure is really gummy and the ratchets move in large increments.
>>7575788you mean where you have to push his feet a bit up and bend his knees a little to make him stand naturally?
>>7571397How do these mooks scale with the LC figures?
>>7576309What do you think you're looking at?
>>7576140>>7576250I never had to do that with mine. I will admit his elbow joints are kinda rubbery though.
So who are everyanon's top five wanted figures in the line after wave 2? Post em!
>>7577653EcliptorIn Space SilverZeo GoldBeast Morphers GoldDino Charge Gold
>>7577653TitaniumRPM blackthe Psycho girlsKoragg[spoiler]kamen rider looking guy from Time Force[/spoiler]>>7577659Jin is in wave 2
>>7577653More than anything I want a MMPR Black Ranger with Adam head. I know we won't get it because they will do Zack and then do Adam in Zeo or Turbo but it is what I want.Beyond that I want Ninjor, Putty Patrol (including optional Zedd chestplates), Tenga Warriors and Psycho Pink.
>>7576513Yours doesn't do this?
>>7577653I just want some time force and lightspeed rescue
Got 2 Zedds from Gamestop today. I figured between them and the one I bought from Amazon that one would be decent, and worst case scenario I could kitbash together a good one, but every one is fucked. I'm fed up with Hasbro already.
>>7560242>that pic relatedkek
I was close to preordering Goldar, but after all the QC issues, I might risk it going to find it at a physical store in October.
>>7577689Not that I've noticed.
>>7578748Are the QC issues that bad? Got a Zedd on preorder (UKanon) and kind of worried now.
>>7580100The paint can be spotty in more detailed areas like White's helmet and Doggie's chest plate, but most Zedd issues seem to be minor paint scuffs to my knowledge.
>>7577653In Space SilverPsycho YellowPsycho PinkAstronemaEcliptor
>>7577653Quantum RangerBlue CenturionArmored TrakeenaDarkondaAny Lightspeeds
>>7577677Kamen rider looking guy?Looking at that monster history book, Timeranger had some damn cool looking MOTW. It'd be nice if they got some love even in that SD blind bag line.
>>7577653It is all I care about.
>>7582842My negro. They're in desperate need of some love.
>>7582800>green>buglike>red boots and gloves>has a prominent belt >his main thing is to RIDE only way it could have been more blatant is if he rode motorcycles instead of cars
I wish they'd go all in on a bug motif for sentai/ PR. I don't see why they can't do bugs and Kamen Rider can go ahead with dinosaurs.
Yo, just got Hasbro Zedd and can we get that torso set up into marvel legends?!
>>7583529>I don't see why they can't do bugs and Kamen Rider can go ahead with dinosaurs.Don't talk about Zi-O like that.
>>7583547Sure thing bro
>>7583552Too bad they keep making other new sculpts without this articulation
>>7583552Wow they are finally catching up to what we were getting 15 years ago.
>>7582842>>7582861I want these guys (and Ninjor/Ninjaman) as a fan of Kakuranger, but those Aquitar aliens always looked so damn bad to me, even as a kid.Oh, cool. I just realized they can do headswaps for Ninjor's alt mode.
>>7562451He's a teenager. Oily skin.
>>7562451Hasbro makes all of their unmasked heads look greasy as fuck.
>>7582842Lol why? They were there for 13(?) episodes out of the entire MMPR?
>>7583953I've never seen an episode of the alien ranger shit and I probably never will. I just love Kakuranger, and for better or for worse Power Rangers toys are the only chance, however small, that we'll ever actually get any decent figures of them.
>Go to Walmart with family>See Lord Zedd on the shelf>impulse buy itI never see single-packed figs at that Walmart. We have zero Marvel legends. People buy them up immediately. I'm so happy.
>>7577653I wish it were 5 figures a wave
Any word on new Mini-Pla? I really wa bug t to see the Thunderzords. Especially see a Tigerzord
>>7586604>Tooled the bulk of the MMPR weapons in one go>Chest crest for Green too>Outside of a crotch for Yellow the entire team is basically set, on top of a middle finger to BOA over Zeo goldBest of all this means Zyurangers that won't be manlets.Only downside is maybe the visor is too long horizontally, but that could be a saban helmet thing and I'd have no idea.
>>7586607> visor STILL sucks I swear to god, that helmet is cursed. No one can get it right.
>>7586631It's almost like they referenced Green's visor for the front on view.Maybe the sculptor was red/green colorblind?
>>7586604>2 Jason headsThis is really disappointing. What are the odds of us getting Trey in a retail release of Gold?
>>7586604>Hasbro's first exclusive is a set homaging BASED ASJ and not overrated JDF
>>7586604>sword on backwardsIdiots
>>7586604Is this going to be a public release or a con-exclusive?
>>7586671it's a separate piece shithead
>>7586673It's an SDCC exclusive, but it's going to be available on Pulse after the show.
>>7586673San Diego Comic-Con exclusive and will be available on the Hasbro Pulse website in limited quantities after the show.
>>7586681So? It's still put on there wrong, and looking at how the blade is held on, we don't know yet if it can flipped and put on properly because I'm not sure if the handle is gonna fit a piece made to hold the blade. Is that part going to be separate and moveable too?
>>7586666I doubt anyone really cares about those characters considering how little they were on screen to begin with. Not to mention they sperged at fans a few years back so I don't think they'll be ponying up for their likeness. https://m.imgur.com/a/x9n2V
>>7586604Not be nitpicky but why is the Morpher buckle so tiny on Red?
>>7586607We already know wave 3 has standard Red, and this makes me think Green and Gold will also be a part of that wave. Dragon Red would essentially be a kitbash, and a Trey head would differentiate the solo release.
>>7586683>>7586685How quickly do they tend to sell out on Pulse?
>>7586700Who knows. Pulse is being handled totally differently than their old store was. They seem to be more collector-focused now. The rush on sets used to be crazy s few years ago but it's seen a decline, at least for the exclusives I go for.
>>7586689>I doubt anyone really cares about those charactersI sure as hell care. I would rather have a new character head than an alternate facial expression. Regardless of how much screen time he had the character of Trey is pretty important to Zordon era lore.>Not to mention they spergedOne of them did, and he's not wrong.>ponying up for their likenessWhy do people keep assuming likenesses need to be secured for this line? Do you really think the ultimate Jew Haim Saban didn't have every actor sign that shit away from the jump? Hasbro wouldn't have promised every Ranger would come with a civilian head if they had to individually negotiate with all of them.
>>7586609>blade blaster in sword mode ignored againI really hoped Hasbro would finally give that to us. We have literally never gotten an American toy with that thing.
>>7586720Several Rangers from the Saban and Disney era confirmed they did sign away their likeness every time they signed on for a season. Bandai never really tool advantage of it, but I'm sure Hasbro will.Makes sense the exclusive Gold will have a Jason head. You can easily sell Trey in the regular line and people won't mind double dipping for him.
>>7586748It's a good way to make everyone happy if they do in fact release an individual Gold with Trey head. If that's the case I wonder what head the standard Red Ranger ends up coming with. Probably the non-smiling version, though I think the smiling one is better. I guess it's also always possible that it's [spoiler]Rocky[/spoiler]
>>7586688No it's put in there exactly how they want it to. Why not just wait and see instead of getting upset about the dumbest shit imaginable
>>7586771>it's not wrong, they did it inaccurately on purpose!I'm not upset, I'm pointing out that something is done objectively improperly. Deal with it. Or just keep accepting that they don't actual put any care or attention into this line because you also don't care and will eat it up regardless. Doesn't matter to me.
>>7586689>how little they were on screen to begin withJason wore the Dragon Shield all of 4 times and they won't stop making toys of that. And that's being generous and counting the end of "The Green Candle" where he wore the crappy American version in the Command Center for a minute upon receiving Tommy's coin.
Why is mmpr reds helmet so hard to do and why has even hasbro fucked it up?
>>7586733maybe MMPR pink will comer with the blade blaster in blade form
>>7586604I like the Power Blaster but I'm not spending $50+ for it. I'm really not liking these ranger figures. I miss the Legacy Collection.>>7586690I didn't even look at that, it does look weird.>>7586671Fixed.
>>7586777There ya go. Now find something else innocuous to get upset about
Where are you Canadians buying the Gold/Red Ranger set from? Does Pulse ship to Canada? I'm so pissed about it being an exclusive. Gold Ranger was my most wanted figure.
>>7586690It looks like they weren't able to go past the width of the belt
>>7586837Still not even half as upset as you clearly are at me pointing it out.
>>7586604That is one elongated torso on Gold.
>>7586855I think it must be reusing parts of White, which had the same problem
>>7586797and a cloth skirt
>>7586841I think our only option is to try and get it on hasbro pulse or ebay later on. Maybe some other sites will pick it up but the prices will still suck since they'll all be USD.
https://hasbropulse.com/collections/lightning-collection/products/power-rangers-lightning-collection-mighty-morphin-lord-zeddPulse has Zedd back up for pre-orderif you missed him.
>>7586819You miss shitty figures?
>>7587046These are shitty figures. Enjoy your silver morpher.

Check your local gamestops!!
>>7587072https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Search?Series=11623&SortOrder=New&Brand=4892Megazord and Dragonzord are sold out.
>>7587093>low-slung shoulders and nasty joint gapsHasbro fans really do have low standards. To think, 500 people had to go on unemployment so Hasbro could by this license.
>>7587189Hey cool, glad to see you're shitposting the same tired argument in every thread you can. You are still a pathetic asshole though, so maybe go away? I mean, you're welcome to stay, but you will be laughed at for being such a dumb shit.
>>7587052I'll enjoy my figures being in a good scale without all the muscles
>>7586819I wish they'd given us Anubis Cruger in his jacket...
How soon after SDCC will the figures be up?
>>7586866and and rubber pussy
>>7586696>We already know wave 3 has standard RedWe do? Since when? I feel like this announcement makes it very likely but did I miss some news prior to that?
>>7587288They'll announce a date, last year it was in August I think.
>>7586696>Green and Gold will also be a part of that waveDead wrong they aren't gonna blow their Mmpr wad so quickly.I bet we'll get one of the original rangers a wave for a very long time.
>>7587548That was my thinking too.
>>7587548>they aren't gonna blow their Mmpr wad so quickly.That's exactly what they're doing though. Wave 1 and 2 each have two big MMPR characters who really should have been saved for future waves. Hell Goldar isn't even in wave 2 proper, he's being relegated to a store exclusive. They're clearly not concerned about saving heavy hitter MMPR characters for the future.
>>7586819I'm glad at least Gold gets an effect part, and there seems to be alt hands we can't see. I have a bad feeling that this will be the only way to get a combined Power Blaster though. The Axe, Lance, and Daggers have differences when combined which are reflected here. The standalone figures will likely come with the standard versions of those weapons, and without the pegs/notches for combination.
Pretty good likenesses, though it annoys me that neither head represents how Jason looked in Zeo. If they had used the hairstyle from the smiling pic they seem to have based that version on it would have been close enough. I really don't understand why gave it a similar side swept style as the other head.
>>7587590They have to strike a balance though of putting in big enough characters to ensure that casuals and lapsed fans get into the line or it won't survive long enough to go deeper into the Rangers pantheon of characters.
>>7587645They'll compensate by doing the OG team, then Movie suits, then Ninja costumes. They'll mix in comic forms too.
>>7587645That's what they SHOULD be doing, but it isn't. There shouldn't be more than one MMPR character per wave to ensure that each wave has at least one figure which will be guaranteed to sell. Wasting Zedd on a wave with White Tommy, and making him one per case on top of that, was a boneheaded move, as was wasting someone as popular as Goldar on a store exclusive. Those figures should have been carrying waves without any MMPR Rangers. The reason I surmise wave 3 could include Red, Green, and Gold, is because con exclusives are generally repaints or kitbashes of existing figures, or figures that are coming soon. We know none of those characters are in wave 2, so I really can't see them being in a wave later than 3 if Hasbro chose to use them as this year's SDCC exclusives.
>>7587697MMPR lightning red was on a gamestop pre-order listing, it was posted in the NECA thread because the original poster was putting it there to be relevant to his comment but someone noticed it on the corner of the page. It may have even had the full wave leaked, but the anon who took the picture wasn't even focused on Power Rangers stuff to know what else it said.
>>7587722Yeah I know Red is, and that's why I'm saying based on this exclusive I think Green and Gold could be as well.
>>7587193They want $23 for this trash. That staff is fucking disgusting. It should be called a partial model kit with all the repainting you have to do.
>>7587807Best Zedd we've ever gotten so I don't know what you're bitching about.
>>7587849He knows it gets a (You) and people keep falling for it.
>>7587402This was leaked as Wave 3 a while back.Lord DrakkonGold Dino ChargeRed MMPRBlue Beast Morpher
>>7588011Fuck off with this unsubstantiated "leak".
>>7588011I'd be down for all of those, especially DC Gold.
>>7587697I have to disagree when it comes to Zedd. They needed to come out strong with Wave 1 and build up some real buzz for the line. I think Zedd more than any other, being that he is an American only design that has never really had this quality of figure before, was a great choice to really get Power Rangers from both ends of the spectrum of casualness into the line. He was for myself and many others the number one figure I wanted out of a relaunched line. I agree that they could and should slow down a bit after the first couple of waves but realistically nostalgia for MMPR will carry this line to a certain degree so it makes sense to get them hooked.
>>7588079>nostalgia for MMPR will carry this line to a certain degreeAt this point the entire line is going to be carried by nostalgia, which is fine.SPD is right on the verge for disney kids, and any babs who were/are into dino charge through netflix or nicktoons have bought up all the reds in my area so hasbro's hitting a good broad nostalgia range I bet they wish for in other lines.
>>7588160So it's spot on.
>>7588266How dare you!
>>7586819Hasbro once again fucked up the head placement with Gold. He and White Ranger have no neck with helmets on, though White ironically has an overly long neck when the Tommy head is on the body. How hard is it to make the heads sit properly on the bodies? Do they even look at these things before sending them into production?
>>7588312You sound like a fat bitch that sits in a basement surrounded by Power Rangers junk. "DOES NOONE LOOK AT THESE THINGS GARARRARGAGAGAGH!?"
>Want Gold Ranger>don't want Red as I have a figuartsFuck.
>>7588324What else am I to think when they have glaring flaws that no one catches throughout the production process? How do you make a figure who has no neck with one head and too long a neck with the other? Stupid mistakes seems to be Hasbro's MO.
>>7588328Wait for the solo release. There's no way this will be the only way to get Gold. Armored Red maybe since it was literally in 4 episodes and is just a kitbash of Red and Green Ranger parts, but Gold is too popular and requires too many unique parts to permanently relegate to con exclusive status. All they need to do is give it a Trey head so it's different enough, and it'll probably lose the black detailing on the shield and some paint apps on the weapons.
>>7586607its gonna be reeeeeal fucking annoying when I get this and its got loose joints or some other qc issue but mostly the joints
>>7588324>stop making fun of Hasbro
>>7588369>and some paint apps on the weapons.The entire bottom is unpainted, if it loses anymore it'll just be a silver and black staff with a red ball on top.
>>7588328I'd take Red, the smiling head, and Howling Cannon off your hands.
>>7586604why doesn't he have the dragon shield on the boxart? fucking lol
>>7587193Truth hurts, don't it? 500 people lost their jobs, Hasbro lied and said it was "SJWs cost us" only they needed the money for this and wanted an excuse. The figures are still 90s GI Joe-tier bad as far as anatomy goes. When will they lower shoulders to the base of the sternum? They still do freakish long giraffe necks on their toys.
>>7560843Never seen the Chogokin line. As someone who would like to own the Original Trio and the Thunder zords, what would be the best suggestion?
Legacy was oversized, but Lightning has zero depth and the holster is all wrong.
>>7589204Lightning is correct to the American versions of the suits.
>>7589382>MMPR Red is based on the US suit>Chest for White Tommy is kibaranger'sThey're the right choices selectively speaking, but it's still weird.
>>7588691Wow that is one hell of a made up story you came up with.
>>7588691>Hasbro lied and said it was "SJWs cost us"
>>7589632>Chest for White Tommy is kibaranger's?
>>7589675Yep, see?I don't really care myself because obviously the dairanger suit is nicer, but the chest armor extends all the way to the belt in your pic.
>>7589682>>7589675Interesting catch, never noticed that.
>>7586604The Power Sword is on backwards
>>7589682You're also using a photo of the figure leaned back, making the white stomach area look bigger than it actually is. You can see the space both above and below the coin is longer on the LC figure than the Kiba suit. The shield definitely looks more like the US version, it's just the LC figure has a freakishly long torso.
>>7588691I wish I could be as crazy as you.
>>7589939The belt is also lower on the figure. You can thankfully slide it up. That made a world of difference on DC Red.
>>7587849I agree that is the best one, but it is still shit quality.
Late for this but...
>>7591139Hey guess who's a lucky man anon.BM Gold/Beet Buster should be in the next wave of LNC!
guys what if [spoiler]surprise Dex figure[/spoiler]
>>7591242On one hand that'd suck because the third civilian rider in a collector oriented line would be fucking Dex.On the other hand the renewal black RX is kinda dated, and also crisis empire kaijin would be a sure thing.So it'd mean once again the only good thing to come from Saban's Masked Rider would be good toys of good designs in a bad representation.And then there's the all star, Ferbus.
>>7591242 (me)or the Beetleborgsor VR Troopers[spoiler]'s battle grid suits, repainted from MMPR figures[/spoiler]>>7591249really I just said that because I want Gatezone, RX is kinda ugly
>After a very, very long wait — on Hasbro’s next San Diego Comic-Con exclusive, The Power Rangers Lightning Collection 6-Inch Mighty Morphin Red and Zeo Gold Ranger 2-Pack. This two-pack features 6 versions of Jason (as both the original Red Ranger from 1993 and the Gold Ranger from 1996’s Power Rangers Zeo). They feature swappable heads for both helmet and non-helmet looks, and come equipped with the Power Axe, Power Bow, Power Blades, Power Lance, and Power Sword (which can also join together to create a Power Blaster). The Red Ranger also comes with a shield. It will retail for $49.99, and will be available on the Hasbro Pulse website in limited quantities after the show.
>>7591745>Six versions of Jason
>>7591795They're trying to say you get six different looks for Jason.>Red helmet>Red dour>Red happy toot>Gold helmet>Gold constipated>Gold smiling
>>7586870Damn what kills me the most is I splurged on the figuarts of the Tyranno Ranger with the dragon shield
>>7591249I'd totally buy Shotaro and Phillip SHF.
>>7591139What's Dekabreak's deal? I really like the costume.
>>7592016The 6th rangers are basically there to finish the Figuarts collection (yes I know they're out of scale)
>>7592016Dekabreak is part of the super special police squadron, his gimmick is a motorcycle. He also has a lisp.
>>7586604Wow seeing the gold ranger reminded me of this toy I had in the 90s with removable armor. Anyone else remember this?
>>7592395I totally remember this for a very sentimental reason. I used to have to go to those Shriners hospitals as a kid because of something to do with my legs not developing properly in my early youth so that my feet pointed inward. I think I was in third or fourth grade the last time I had to go, whenever Zeo was airing in any event, and I'd kind of grown out of PR by that point and moved onto other interests. I was particularly nervous that year because they had told my parents that, if I wasn't able to train my body to walk properly over time and straighten out my walking, I'd have to essentially have surgery on my tibia to reset them and be in a full-body cast for like half a year. Needless to say, despite my efforts to improve, I was very frightened about how the next visit would work out in the end. After driving all the way across two or three states to get to where the hospital was located, we decided to stop off by a store to stretch our legs a bit before driving on to our hotel. I stumbled upon this figure with a bio on the back stating that this was Jason, who had been my first PR toy back in kindergarten, returning to the team in their time of need. It was like an old friend showing up to support me when I was scared and I brought him with me the next day. Everything worked out fine in the end and I didn't have to have surgery, but I don't think I'd have been able to go in as bravely that day without that little twist of fate the night before.
>>7592395I'm curious to see how LC Gold looks without the shield. I'm sure they gave him the crest like this one so it can be used for the other Zeo males, otherwise it would be a waste of tooling to just do an upper torso with the collar.
>>7592459suck it trey, jason is this guy's gold ranger
>>7592395I really liked how the toys would give the sixth rangers bodies under the armor that looked like the rest of the team. Made for some cool feeling toys
What are some likely SDCC exclusives? So far I got, in order from most to least want>SPD 0range ranger, Nova ranger, and dragon shield Tommy's son 3 pack>Astronema with 9 interchangeable heads>team pink 5 pack>Psycho Green and Silver again>dragon shield Zack and Kimberly >1969 rangers 5 pack>green rangers 5 pack>Fighting Spirit 3 pack again
>>7593343Ryu Ranger Omega Ranger Super Legends ver RPM Red with Samurai coatTitanium Ranger Legendary Battle ver Dark Ranger
>>7593343>SPD 0range rangerI hope Kat Ranger gets a single release to go with Doggie.
>>7588068It was in Walgreens computers you twat
>>7592459= )I'm glad that everything turned out ok.
>>7593343Cyborg Ecliptor/Cyborg AstronemaI also see Scorpina being a Comic-Con Exclusive maybe even a Power Morphicon Exclusive if they continue that.
>>7593531No it wasn't.
Got Zedd finally, some paint issues but nothing too bad that isn't an easy enough fix. Holy fuck though, he's huge.
>>7594273Why else would Rita settle?
Did I luck out?
>>7594273>>7594587He really shouldn't be this hard to find. I would imagine/hope they'll put him 2 per case with one less Tommy or DC Red in any future cases of wave 1.
>no company has ever gotten the point on the bottom of the red rangers helmet rightdank
>>7594646is he hard to find? I genuinely don't know i killed time in a target and the mustve put out a case cuz they had one of everyone and two doggies it's the first time I've ever seen zedd in person.
>>7594929He’s one per case in a case of eight, and most places only ordered two cases.
>>7593742Eat my ass cunt
next time someone goes to gamestop ask about a binder that has upcoming games, its probably where >>7596073 this listing came from
>>7596073That was Gamestop and it only shows one of those figures, which was the most obvious figure one could guess for a third wave. Nice try.
>>7595277>two cases.not that guy but I noticed that too but when I found Zedd at Target, the only ones bought so far were 3 Tommysand later at another Target the only one I found was a Zedd
>>7594744ok but at what cost>>7594817the only good one is the vinyl figure
>>7587093>>7594587>no paint on the finger tips>not a lick of paint on the staffIf they don't want to paint a small detail like the fingers sure but there's no excuse for the staff. Not for $20.
>>7597484how fucking cheap are you people
>>7597491Finally broke down and bought Tommy at $16 total on Ebay. As it was a stock photo, I was taking a gamble, but his paint apps are nearly perfect. Compared to the other three in the wave, he's definitely the weakest release. Having the belt embedded into his waist is a big downside to me (again, sliding DC Red's up a bit instantly fixed the wonky-looking proportions) and I can't help but feel Tommy's alt head is too small compared to the others. Overall, it's a nice figure, but it feels like it was an early prototype for the other Rangers in the wave.
>>7597484Why the fuck would they paint the staff when they can just cast it in silver?Fuck, he’s got silver on his head, chest, back, arms, legs, and blue piping all over his body, plus he’s a new mold that will absolutely never be reused, and you’re going to bitch about the staff not having paint? “Not for $20” so fucking stupid, not like $20 is even that much but okay
>>7598568>when they can just cast it in silverWould have been totally fine with this too. Anything other than bare gray plastic.>“Not for $20” so fucking stupidMy point is the lightning collection is supposed to be a higher tier product than what we were getting in the past. Sculpts are there but not fully painting the accessories (they did paint the bomb) or casting them in silver like you suggested seems like a cheap move.
>>7577653Blue SenturionOperation Overdrive MercuryRPM GreenSuper Megaforce SilverKamdor
>>7598622Yeah you know what else is a cheap move?Making a "collector focused line" and only giving a total of two standard releases their iconic weapons at all, due to not coming with an out of scale build a figure part, and then for the most iconic team after releasing them in full, in worse plastic.
>>7561045What is the second from the right and do you like it? I love that design.
>>7600623That's the recently released Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Rider Kiva. His was my first Kamen Rider series in tandem with W.
>>7600623I got him for about $40 total (pretty cheap for the line) and he's well worth it so far as Figuarts go. Lots of detail and poseability, plus he has an alternate leg for his finishing attack (see >>7576513).
>>7600712I meant the 100 guy, but I like that rider too. Hes a vampire or something right?
