>>8575125you are personally hurting me by making that the OP pic. this is what we deserve
>>8575172This is what PR fans get for having such low standards.
>>8575172Could be worse, you could be a GI Joe fan
This is what we could've had if Hasbro wasn't pants on head retarded.
Why did they do this? Why? I had dropped the rangers for all the QC issues. I was looking forward to these and they completely butchered them.
So is it supposed to be white or silver?
For all it's Flaws, I still enjoy the line. 19.99 for decent plastic reps of designs I love. It's a shame they're botching so much; especially when it comes to Paint apps.
>>8575268silver side white trim, why cant hasbro get this right.
Heads up, A squad blue doesn't come with trigger fingers just the normal grip hands
>>8575211The new joes are MUCH better than these
>>8575211the 3.75? sure. the Classified line is great, though -- other than the distribution
>>8575252if they're done this from the start i wouldnt be pissed. monsters 8-inch, humans (including zedd so he scales with rita) putties and rangers at 6-inch, fine, it's not accurate to the show but everything still makes sense together. this is just stupid
>>8575125There's nothing wrong with this.
>>8575125Fucking Hasbro, man.
>>8575172They are going to make a Monster sized Goldar
>>8575268>continuously paint white helmet details silver>start to paint silver detail whiteThis line is an unmitigated disaster.
>>8575395that'd be so scummy to do that.
>>8575125No.... this cant be true! Tell me its not!
>>8575401When has Hasbro not done that shit?>release one Psycho Ranger as an exclusive and another in a two pack>5 months later announce a Amazon 5 pack with no changes to those two already released figures >all the $30 released Marvel Legends bafs as single carded/box>GIJoe Target exclusives all being high demand figures
>>8575401Why would anyone even want a massive Goldar? This scale is stupid as fuck. The villains look good when they can be pitted against the Rangers as seen in the show. If you're gonna start to arbitrarily scale shit to some idealized size then why even make them look show accurate at all? This line boasts show accuracy and then does something stupid like this.
I like the more imposing size. It's supposed to stand out on display with the 6 rangers, being a little bigger seems better to me.
>>8575438It stands out by being a fucking monster among 5 twinks in spandex you size queen faggot.
How fucked am I if I want Lightning MM Red, Blue and Pink?I managed to find Yellow and Black in store as well as Zedd and both GoldarsAlso should I just wait for the single release MM Green? Or is the two pack better?
>>8575277That's the next Ranger on my list after the original MMPR. Love that Gold and Black design. Did you take that pic with a phone or camera? Great quality!
>>8575441I'm sorry, they are too big for you. I'm sure that must be frustrating. Do you want some chikkie tendies and hunny mussie to go with all that autism?
>>8575447Red and Blue are easy to find. Pink you'll have to eBay unless you get lucky. I found mine at a walgreens. mmpr green just released so he should be easy to find
>>8575447Red and Blue are doable in the US for retail or on sale (Red was $13.99 on Amazon like a week ago). Pink is shorted right now and costs $40 or more unfortunately. I believe the main difference between two-pack MM Green, and single is the helmet.
>>8575453>it’s autism to not want an 8” figure to be the same size as a 6.5” figure, even though they were the same in the showI guess when your standards are this low, you can drag any of us down to your level of stupidity and then beat us with experience.
>>8575477>sperg out because someone gives another opinion >not autismI wasn't even disagreeing, I was just saying I personally didn't mind it. You're the one all fucked up about it, so yeah. You're an autist.
>>8575477>I guess when your standards are this lowThis is ultimately the problem. The immediate reaction to the scale of these was overwhelming ire across multiple websites. Then the shills start coming out of the woodwork saying "I don't mind it", "I like them being imposing", etc. If everyone could band together to tell Hasbro they fucked up we might be able to save future waves from this fate, but the low standard shills will ruin it for the rest of us, just like every other fuckup in this line that they make excuses for.
I wouldn’t care so much about KS and PR being so tall if they’d already made other monsters like Goldar just as tall. I don’t care that they’re taller than the Rangers, and I don’t even care they’re taller than Zedd and Rita.
>>8575125You know why this happened? Fucking Hasbro knows we all use SHF for our Rangers and skip their shitty Rangers while using the villains as spot fillers, so they increased the scale by two inches so we'd have to buy their shitty Rangers just to have something that's CLOSER to being in scale (but still not in scale).
>>8575268oh my god what the fuck
>>8575452Thanks man, got intoToy Photography few months back.Took it with my Canon Powershot x530 HS, got it refurbished from Canon themselves.
So, when are we getting a Rito figure?
>>8575714Hopefully after they learn their lesson about this 8 inch fuckery.
>>8575714never because they fucked the scale forever. he'll either be taller than rita and goldar (who he is in every scene with almost) or shorter than every other monster
>>8572388They're outsourcing because its cheaper, same reason why they got a new team to work on the line. Lower salaries.>>8572549Its not due to the factory. That's just corporate talk to point fingers elsewhere. I'm sure its the factory workers that pick the paint apps and make the choice whether to paint the face or not.>>8572890Astronema looks okay. I hope she looks better in person.>>8573183This is why they should release the deco sheets as soon as they pitch a figure. So people can point out whats wrong with their references.>>8573635I rather them re-release King Sphinx and Rapper at the Goldar scale.>>8573645People will buy them regardless.>>8573824Thank you! I was going to request this pic. Can you do one with Legacy Jason + any other Legacy MMPR rangers, Goldar, and Pumpkin Rapper?>>8575125That sucks for the Lightning collectors who were looking forward to the villains.>>8575252Now thats perfect! I guarantee you people would pay $30 for these! Even with them lacking paint. This scale with Sphinx mouth and nose painted, Rapper with a darker wash would have been perfect.
Is LC Pink Ranger just second-hand now or is there a chance she gets restocked?
>>8575872MM white got restocked so it's possible
>>8575872It feels inevitable they will do a 5/6 pack next year or some other rotation.
>>8575125>wave 1 of the Monsters line>effectively a mission statement of what we can expect from this, a toyline aimed at collectors>the success of this wave determines the success of all future waves, so they should be putting their best foot forward>faces missing black paint apps>thanks, Warden
>>8575872I would bet good money there'll be a 5 or 6-pack with the whole team.Maybe since they've done the original team, they'll do Rocky/Adam/Aisha/Kat headsculpts, since they have them from the Zeo versions and the Pink metallic armour version.
>>8576023That's okay, just find them at the next Pulse Con!
>>8576056I mean you're not wrong.I'm still waiting to see if they do a reissue of Dino Thunder White, since they're offering replacement helmets and all
>>8576023Warden not till end of 2021 at earliest, Kingdom is his final Transformers wave so you have to wait for that to be over in terms of figuring out what he worked on
>>8576067The entirety of Dino Knights Charge Fury Thunder might not even be him desu
>>8576082Warden worked on the Dino Fury Megazord. They stated it during their last fan Friday stream.
>>8576060Watch they reissue it in a 5 pack with the main team and that'll be the only way you can get dino thunder yellow
>>8575714Get ready for 9 inch Rito without camo print or eye sockets
>>8575872She has been restocked a few times just keep your eyes out.
>>8575548man I just like big monster toys
>>8576120I wouldn't put it past them.God, I've got so many doubled-up figures from this line, it's pathetic.
>>8576176Same. Big monsters just look better.
>>8575481>you’re the one all fucked up about it>dO yOu wAnT ChIkKeN TeNdIeS aNd MuSsIe?Yeah buddy I’m the one super rustled here, that’s why you default to calling everyone babies over something you care nothing about.
>>8575481>I wasn't even disagreeing, I was just saying I personally didn't mind it. You're the one all fucked up about it, so yeah. You're an autist.>I'm sorry, they are too big for you. I'm sure that must be frustrating. Do you want some chikkie tendies and hunny mussie to go with all that autism?
>tfw never cared about shitty rangers and only liked the robots and monster suits>only intend to collect evil space aliens and monsters of the week and maybe zords
>>8575548Looks like we are doomed
>>8576618You seem pretty cool.My Ranger teams are pretty much done, so I'm looking forward to getting some cool monsters n zordsMight mix-and-match with monsters from other tokusatsu series, maybe a Megazord fighting king ghidorah, or Ultraman beating up Pudgy PigGonna be neat
>>8576685Figuarts Ultraman won't scale with these kaiju. Nothing does except maybe Storm Collectibles
>>8576687Good thing I already own all the Ultra-Acts then, they'll scale
>>8575296Are they purposely fucking up this line?
>>8575872This pic is so hot
What would your ideal size be for a hypothetical Haslab MMPR Megazord? Pic related is their Haslab sentinel compared to the 6 inch Legends line.
>>85774228 inches so that they match the monster wave, then put the price point into articulation, combining, and paint. unlike a sentinel you cannot have a zord that looks like it scales with people because it'd be too huge. I'm already used to having "people scale vs robot scale" with stuff like ultraman figuarts, robot spirits, etc. but this is hasbro so their approach will be "more plastic = good" so we'll get something the size of that sentinel that costs $400, doesn't combine, scales with nothing, and looks like a scaled up marvel legend
>>85774226 inches, fully transformable. Basically Super Miniplas. It makes no sense having Megazords be taller than the Rangers when they're gonna be out of scale with each other regardless. Then all 6" villains can double as adversaries for both the Rangers and Zords. 8" villains is asinine, even if they did eventually do 8" Zords. Make everything the same damn size.
>>8577439just type in Pink Ranger Hentai into google. should pop up in the first couple of results. That's how I found it.
So all it needed was some more paint? Why can't hasbro do this?
>>8575548this is the problem with every fandom. there's shiteaters who will gobble up anything with the brand on it so change doesn't happen.
>>8577775Those people aren't 1/12 scale fans. They don't care about scale at all.
i dont know what everyone is talking about, i got my monster wave in and king sphinx looks fine with everyone else. its not show accurate but he's a bigger monster guy so whatever
>>8577821>so whateverthanks shiteater.
>>8577821>i dont know what everyone is talking about>its not show accurate butAnswered your own question shilltard.
>>8577899boomers complain about anything i guess
Eh kinda bummed by the scaling but I can ignore it. Figures are neat, wish paint was a bit better and Sphinx should not have been 30 he doesn't come with enough accessories. Pumpkin is awesome though and I love the extra heads.
>>8577904What happened on the shelf below?
>>8577705Looks better even if it isn’t more show accurate.
>>8577808What weird is they are to scale of the Megazord coming out
>>8577954Nothing it's just extra storage for now. I recently moved and am still in the middle of putting my collection up. I have a few marvel figures laying on top of some unopened boxes.
>>8576365>It stands out by being a fucking monster among 5 twinks in spandex you size queen faggot.You're the one who started throwing names being so fucking triggered by a toy being to big. Stop being a lil bitch about it. Don't buy it then, grow up.
>>8577904honestly seems like they just made them 8 inches so they could justify that $30 pricetag.
>>8578030Just like Bandai slapped unneeded diecast that only caused problems onto their Legacy items to justify the cost. It's because retards think size and weight equates to value.
Remember folks: it's the Vietnam factory fucking things up and the HasBRO started the QC issues should iron out by early next year.
>>8578197Anon, the Hasbro rep literally said it's the Vietnam factory.
>>8576154You would think it'd be easy as shit to do Rito but after King sphinx nothing would surprise me.God help us whenever they get around to Ecliptor
>>8578203Why are you so fucking paranoid?
>>8578306I'm not, that's just you being paranoid again.
>>8578316Because I want to have sex with Anubis Cruger. What's your excuse?
that hasbro anon was a liar, just an undercover rep trying to trick us into buying lightning collection
>>8578331You legit need some meds man.
>>8578193Both are responsible. Hasbro should have put their foot down earlier and not given them the wrong colour guides to begin with.
>>8578491I like how you think that's what happened.
>>8578017>You're the one who started throwing namesYou called me an autist first, retard. Try responding with more than one brain cell next time, bitch boy.
>>8578331Spent three days talking about every Hasbro line, barely even talked about Lightning collection, but sure he’s a fucking spy or whatever.
>>8578491This is true>>8578501This is not
>>8577705Pumpkin Rapper never had black eyes or a black mouth. Only the reason fan art has him like that.>>8577821Yeah that looks off. They needed to be Goldars size. Bigger than the rangers but no monster should be bigger than what they made Goldar.
pic related seems like a no brainer for a MMPR display, but was wondering what anons thought about it who had it
>>8578923Alpha 5 is great, Zordon is shit
>>8578923What store is this exclusive to and when tf is it coming to Canada
>>8578923I've seen reports of the screw to get to the batteries for Zordon breaking making you have to break it to actually get to them Alphas fine though
>>8578924>>8578942thanks. Yeah that makes sense. So Zordon is like a $10 accessory that seems more trouble than anything else. Probably just get it for the Alpha then. >>8578940this is a WalMart exclusive
>>8578923I don't understand why they sculpted Zordon, he looks creepy. They should have lasercut and backlit a piece of acrylic inside the tube, it would have looked dramatic and not so cheap.
>>8578539>hasbro hires all their staff through instagramKek, you genuinely can’t make this shit up. Where’s your proof? Or are you just going to point to the freelancer they hired who happens to post on Instagram?
Well done Hasbro, well done.
>>8578524This is how I know you're a fucking sperg, who doesn't socialize. You call someone a size queen faggot and don't think thats an insult then ree out when they call you an autist over it. Learn how to talk to people retard. Maybe people would listen to your lil Timmy complaints instead of calling you the retard that you are.
>>8579055Shes looks tiny next to Zed something which is strange as Rita doesnt look tiny next to him. Can you do a side by side with Rita. Maybe its just the headpiece thats making Astronema look so small. Shes as tall if not taller than the Quantrons. I hope the Quantrons dont tower her.
>>8579055>one day new Machine Empire>new Divatox>new I forget the guy at the right right but him tooYES
>>8579055Ran through a few scenes where Divatox and Rita/Zedds together or Divatox and Astronama together, from what I can gather Zedd and Rita are almost the same height with Divatox slightly taller than them and Divatox maybe 2 or 3 inches taller than Astronama.Going by the the show Zedd and Rita shouldn't be absolutely mogging her but just slightly taller.What in the absolute fuck is Hasbro doing with the sizes>inb4 Ecliptor is huge
Anyone know if Amazon will have Black Friday deals for LC? Maybe a drop in the psycho set again?
>>8579282But Rita and her are the same scale, Rita just has a fuck huge hat
>>8579329Not my pics, I'd need to see them side by side without Rita's dress to compare, but it doesn't seem like it's the same body if Rita is this much taller.
>>8579214She's supposed to have big heels as seen in your photo, so she's losing a bit of height with her flat feet. She should be about as tall as Andros, and if you were to swap out heeled feet from a Marvel Legend she'd be close to that mark.The problem is Rita and Zedd. Zedd was scaled larger than he's supposed to be (he's about 6.5", whereas in the show he was under 6 feet), and then Rita was scaled to Zedd. It results in everything being off. Will they scale Ecliptor to Astronema, or will they make him a beast like Zedd? It's a mess.
>>8579148Lmao cope harder
>>8579087>”Hasbro hires all their staff through Instagram”>the guy who designs the box covers was discovered through InstagramOne guy gets hired to make box art and suddenly all their freelance employees get hired off of Instagram? Talk about a stretch
>>8579626>Talk about a stretchAny excuse to denigrate women
>>8579626It's almost like this board is infested with retarded trolls
>>8579564Ok there ksteel
>>8577705Does anyone have any experience custom painting these figures? Can you just apply paint and have it be good to go or do you need to prime the figure before hand? Just got Pumpkin and Sphinx and wanted to add a bit more paint detail to them both.
>>8580249I think tips that would apply to painting Gundam models should be transferable to these figures. Not totally sure though. I did see one youtuber mention using a Gundam Marker to color in the nose of King Sphinx black.
>>8580249Use acrylic or lacquer paints on plastic and you're fine. I never prime anything. Though if you were wanting to paint a lighter color like yellow on top of a darker one, then you'd probably need to prime.
>>8580267Yeah priming helps so your paint doesn’t chip, but most people are doing Grey/black on both Sphinx and Pumpkin so you don’t really need to. I’d stick to acrylic though, lacquer can chip sometimes.
Here we go lads
>>8580772Is that supposed to be special?
>>8580772That looks cool!I was worried at first but ill definitely be picking up the Astronema 2 Pack.
>>8578923autistic screeching Alpha 5 stock image on the back is lol
>>8581502She'e shorter than a female Ranger due to her calves being shorter. With heels she should be as tall as a male Ranger, so they really botched her height. Since her legs are plain black I'm hoping they can be swapped with a Marvel Legend to make her as tall as she's supposed to be, but it's ridiculous that I should even need to do that.
>>8580249wash the figures beforehand
>>8575184They have a good line what are you on about?
>>8581842Meant for the post below it
>>8576687What if you don't care about the monster being the same size as Ultraman? Him fighting a bigger foe is fine too.
>>8581090All it is is just a different box, the figures are completely the same, the spectrum series is a target exclusive
>>8581874That should be how Target exclusives should be from now on.
Any repainted king sphinx yet?
>>8581850No its not
SoC Titanus is currently $150 on Bluefin's website for Black Friday. This is pretty consistent with last year where Dragonzord was $80. I won't lie I am really fucking tempted to get this, even if I have no room for it on my Power Rangers Shelf.
>>8583283I love you! That's the one I needed to complete my collection.
>>8583283Thats basically MSRP for the Legacy one, and considering they're 90% the same thing that's appropriate.
>>8582414Check out the lightning collection subreddit, there’s a few.
>>8575418Right? They're supposed to be human-sized villains for human superheroes to fight. They're not fucking daikaiju. The only monsters/villains who should be that size are Master Vile and Dark Specter.
>>8577821>but he's a bigger monster guyThere is no "bigger monster guy" in MMPR. King Sphinx is the same height as Goldar. The only "bigger monster guy" in MMPR is Master Vile.
>>8575268So glad I don't like SPD enough to buy the whole team. Shadow Ranger is all I need. Maybe Kat if they do her later.
>>8575125While King Sphinx is irksomely tall, Pumpkin Rapper just has a normal sized body and a massive pumpkin head.
>>8584466A reasonable assumption, but no. Pumpkin Rapper's shoulders come up to the midway point of a male Ranger's helmet. Even without his big ass pumpkin head, he's still too big.
>>8575125The lead for the upcoming Power Rangers movie will be trans.
>>8584506Is this confirmed or just part of the weird time travel rumour from a while ago?
>>8584506I'm fine with this. Diversity has always been a big part of Power Rangers.
Bluefin has an unending amount of the White Ranger figuarts. It's always on sale every Black Friday.
Proportionate with Goldar and the nose/mouth painted he would have been perfect.
>>8578193>Remember folks: it's the Vietnam factory fucking things up and the HasBRO started the QC issues should iron out by early next yearThis is a fucking lie. They've had these issues for years. It's not new.
Ok /toy/ I've posted my PR shelf a few times recently so I'm sorry for reposting it yet again but I wanted to put my situation into context so you guys would better understand my dilemma. As you can see my current PR setup is pretty full, I personally feel that it's slightly too cluttered at the moment but I've arranged it to where I'm at least content with it. As you can see, I have SoC Megazord and Dragonzord. With SoC Titanus on sale for such a good price, picking up is almost a no-brainer to complete the Ultrazord, however I run into two problems. Problem one is the aforementioned space constraints, I'd love to expand my PR shelf, but I can not do so at the moment, maybe one day in the future. Problem two is display configuration. Even if I did have ample space to accommodate the Ultrazord on my shelf, I personally prefer displaying Megazord and Dragonzord separately. I've actually only ever combined the two one time. I don't really like handling them that much because I'm afraid I'll be a retard and break something. Anyway, even with the space I don't think I'd display the whole thing in Ultrazord formation anyway. Normally, if this figure were even just $50 cheaper, I'd pick it up just to have the option of Ultrazord if I ever wanted it, however, even discounted, the price is pretty high for something I don't even have space for. That and all the other random issues that seem to plague the release. The tight fit for the legs, the difficulty attaching the claws to Megazord, and other weird nitpicks, I just don't know if I can justify spending that $150 for it. I can afford it, I just am having a lot more trouble justifying it than say another whole Megazord. Titanus on it's own is kind of meh and really needs the other two sets to be worth it. I just don't know what I should do, I feel like I'd be fucking myself over by skipping on the deal but then I'm finding it difficult to justify the purchase, even at such a discount. What should I do /prg/?
>>8585791I would add Alpha in front of Billy with his hands posed ¯\_(ツ)_/¯I'd get it. Titanus released in 2019. Its usually two years later when retailers run out of stock that prices go up. After 2021 Titanus will be hard to find plus you wont ever find it below $400.
>>8585779>They've had these issues for years.Line only started last year dude. Is it really so crazy to you that a newer, shittier factory is having so many fuck ups? Or are you just a conspiracy theorist?
>>8585987Hasbro 'forgetting' paint apps has been a thing in Nerf for years but I don't know about pre-LC Power Rangers or Marvel Legends
>>8586015I feel like with LC it's to a far worse degree than MLs and BS.
>>8586049yeah these figs are way worse than MLs.
>>8585750>inb4 6 months from now they rerelease King sphinx with slightly better shading and the nose/mouth colored
>>8586015Well, Hasbro didn’t own PR prior to Lightning Collection, so any issues with Legacy would be Bandai America’s fault. They gimped on paint plenty but most of the time it was them being objectively cheap, not necessarily factory errors. Zeo Gold (Cheddar Ranger was the popular nickname) was a particularly bad example. As for Legends, the paint apps are usually decent. It’s pretty rare to get a completely unpainted figure in most spots (although some Spider-Men have plain red plastic that would’ve really benefitted from black lines). However, I think PR generally has a lot more paint apps than the average Marvel figure. Not really an excuse, but Omega Ranger for instance requires a fuck ton of paint apps.
VS Pack when?
>>85859871) you don't know what "conspiracy theory" means apparently 2) it doesn't matter how long the line has been around, retard. It's a thing Hasbro has been doing for years. 3) I honestly can't tell if this is shtick or if you're really this stupid
>>8586536The Vs packs are perfect for Red Samurai vs Deker. Snide vs Kendra could work. Pipe dream but Snide vs Sledge, a "for leadership" pack.
>>8586599Skull vs Bulk would be nice
>>8586565Suck my cock, mouth breather. Go rant about election fraud, that’s more your speed.
>>8586565>1) you’re dumb>2) you’re dumb>3) you’re dumbSomeone’s bootyblasted lmao
>>8585779Imagine thinking this
>>8586536Holy shit. This is the first time I've ever seen any actual proof of existence for the legendary "Zhane vs. Elgar" deleted scene from Countdown to Destruction.
Will they do Mystic Force bros?
>>8586536I want a Quantron 2 Pack like the Putties.>>8586750I was going to say I dont remember this. Wait, what? This is the first time hearing about it. Any more info about it or any other deleted scenes?
>>8586767>Any more info about it or any other deleted scenes?All I've ever heard about it is that it existed. I THINK it was supposed to take place between "WE... are the Power Rangers!" and Zordon's energy wave, but I might be wrong about that. As for other scenes, there were some, but I think they were just extensions of scenes already in the episode as opposed to entirely new/unused sequences. There MIGHT have been an Andros/Ashley kiss, but again, I might be mistaken. I haven't really read anything about these scenes in probably well over a decade.
>>8586750>>8586767>>8586786OH! Supposedly Phantom Ranger was going to demorph once Zordon's energy had saved the universe and they were going to tie up his thing with Cassie, but I'm not sure if that was actually a deleted scene, cut from the script before filming, or just a fan rumor.
>>8577439>>8577416You can find a Ranger thread in /aco/ if you're looking for more of the same.
This doesnt look too bad, but I cant speak for King Sphinx
>>8587033Huh. He doesn't look too bad next to Zedd... Is this your pic? Any chance you could take one like this with Sphinx?
>>8587045Its from D Amazings review:https://youtu.be/kqcuEAO3sSc
>>8587045It doesnt look as bad because their shoulders align. Its just the huge head that makes him taller. Sphinx on the other hand shoulders are way above everyone elses making him out of scale.
>>8587073>First thing he does is yank Pumpkin Rapper's head offJesus. I'm always so careful with my shit that sort of thing gave me a heart attack.>Watches the King Sphinx reviewI never really noticed it before, but there's something off with Sphinx's face sculpt. It's too human-y when it should be more feline. But I can't quite pinpoint exactly how/why.
>>8586755PR season was bad, Sentai was only decent. No demand. No figures.
>>8587172Missing the nose paint
>>8585750Who did this so I can ask them to fix mine?
>>8587172the first and only lightning collection problem I've had was the neck joint popping out when I was swapping out the helmet for the tommy head
>>8586755Nothings off the table but the capes will probably suck.
>>8587033As I pointed out earlier, Pumpkin Rapper isn't oversized. He just has an enormous head. He's actually in scale with the others body-wise.
>>8587746He's not as bad as King Sphincter but he's still oversized. His body is taller than the male Rangers, and his head is larger in relation to it. >>8575252 is proper size. Rita and Zedd are oversized themselves so he doesn't look bad next to them.
>>8587746>As I pointed out earlier, Pumpkin Rapper isn't oversized.As I pointed out earlier, he is.
>>8587784Yes and no, body is right, collar piece and head are a bit OS.that said, this is a dumb reason for not getting a cool looking monster.
>>8587873I'm totally getting Pumpkin Rapper, but King Sphinx being fuckhuge kills it for me. That and the lack of face paint. Plus Rapper at least comes with cool accessories that I can use on other figures.
>>8587873The body isn't right, the torso is longer than a standard male Ranger before you even get to the collar. Look at the arm placement compared to Green. The collar should be below a Ranger's head, not at the middle of it.
>>8587172>I never really noticed it before, but there's something off with Sphinx's face sculpt. It's too human-y when it should be more feline.Yeah definitely looks more animalistic in the show, and it's more than the nose paint
Totally nitpicking here, but the end of the chin decoration in King Sphinx should also be red. I'm amazed that even the old toys got that part right.
>>8588041don't worry, Im sure they will release a $30 upscale Goldar in wave two
>>8588041Them being bigger is better. Suck it.
>>8588111It should be painted. People didnt notice it because the nose and mouth are the ones that make the figure look off.
>>8588173Them being bigger than the Rangers is one thing. They shouldn't make Goldar look like a midget.
>>8588193Goldar was a bitch anyway
>>8588200Maybe, but he was a bitch that was the same size as King Sphinx.
>>8587916>dumb and genericboy, this is the og dumb and generic
>>8588173like the tumor on your brain?
>>8588041>launch your line with the claim of most show accuracy ever>constantly fuck up accuracy of the Rangers due to hiring lazy freelancers who don't do proper research>intentionally fuck up the accuracy of the monsters of the day by making them two scales too large to better justify a $30 price pointThe Lightning Collection is literally "Monkey's Paw: The Toyline".
Picked these up on sale. Usual Hasbro frustrations (had to take a blowdryer to a bunch of frozen joints, and Rita’s elbow almost tore despite the heat) but I’m really enjoying them, never expected to have a decent Rita figure.
Why should I pay $30 for an out of scale King Sphinx when I can just use the one I already have, which actually has a painted face and better sculpt?
>>8588463What's under her dress?
>>8588482I don't know why are you such a little bitch?
>>8588482Do you enjoy being miserable all the time?
>>8588482Holy shit Hasbro, get your shit together. It's sad that more than two and a half decade old figure is better than what you released now.
>>8588488Under her dress is just the standard stock body in black plastic. The only difference is at the elbow, where they pegged in human forearms
>>8588488Look here >>8581502
>>8588482I will say it's nice that LC Sphinx has his loincloth and shoulder pads painted properly and actually comes with his scepter. Otherwise... yeesh.
>>8588509>>8588519Thanks for answering my question, anons. That's a disappointing looking buck body. Still, I'm planning on getting this set as i don't have Zed and you can never have too much Machiko Soga in your life.
>>8588041If they had just scaled it like Goldar, they could have painted the nose and mouth with the extra budget. Or at least forego the failed attempt at shading.
>>8588528The Bandai figure overdoes his forearms just a tad (they're not quite that Popeye-y on the actual suit), but the accurate face more than makes up for it. Looking at the two side by side, I think the problem with the Hasbro figure's face is that it looks like the sculptor saw a head-on shot of King Sphinx and they somehow misinterpreted his muzzle/snout as snarling/grinning lips
>>8588482Nobody asked you Reddit fagFuck off back to your shill discord if you serious think it's even an option to go for a mcdonalds toy statue vs a new Hasbro fig you're a fucking retard, but we already knew that
>>8588463I don't have her but from watching reviews the joints or her elbows were backwards. So people had to lift up the sleeves and rotate the elbows so they had the proper articulation.
>>8588615Yup, I had that issue plus the joint was frozen. So it was very confusing
>>8588580Why are you so mad at an honest question?
>>8588674>honest>full of deceitful remarks
>>8588681So Hasbro isn't charging $30 for an out of scale figure with a badly sculpted, unpainted face?
>>8588585Everyone should be criticizing Hasbro for the terrible job they're doing on the Power Rangers lineBut this video is so shit I saved the response to the first time people were spamming it trying to give this faggot views
>>8588712I'd rather have none thanks. Views help content creators so even spite watching helps them out more than a downvote hurts.
>>8588712>>8588730If you have to due to autism, you could actually post youtubers related to the thread. Like Toku Topics who actively steals material from these threads anyway
got Lightening Black Ranger today. knew the faults going in but still a solid figure. Good accessories. Hope they re release Pink because at this point that's all I'm missing for the original line-up (got the rest on pre-order). Got to posing Drakkon as well. Despite being a bit samey with the White Ranger, I dig him. Especially with the context from the comics. Vicious bastard. So weird how Pink is rare. Pretty much every other MMPR that's been released seems easy enough to pick up (at least in the U.S.).
>>8588556I'm not even entirely sure what you're trying to say here but it feels fairly aggressive so I'm just gonna say "okay."
After looking at this all I'm not sure I want Quantum Ranger anymore.
>>8588784>knew the faults going in but still a solid figure.There something I missed or is this just general dislike of the line?
>>8588482LC Sphinx looks like he cried off his eye makeup
>>8589079You can't talk about a toy you like on this board without starting with an acknowledgement of the manufacturer's historic sins
Painted his staff since Hasbro was too cheap to do it. Not flawless but it looks fine from a distance on the shelf...
>>8589468At first I thought it was some added custom paint.
>>8589079>>8589542I guess I just like to cover my bases when I post. I also watch Anthonycustoms reviews which are definitely on the critical side. >>8589079>There something I missed or is this just general dislike of the line?I would say it's somewhere between "Oh this is so cool Hasbro is making all these Power Ranger toys" and "why are they making choices that are either ignorant of the source material, or just smack of laziness/incompetence". So some happy some angry. That's why I kind of tip toe when talking about the figures.
>>8589574They could've at least included the lines in the sculpt. Lazy fucking interns. Also I don't understand how they fucked up the belt so badly when the cheap Blue Ranger got it right.
I grabbed a green ranger because I was bored waiting on a prescripton. for the most part it's what i expected, except: why the fuck is the ankle pivot on these so good? it's better than my import figures in that specific joint, and it can hit much wider poses than my figuarts zyurangers with his feet flat on the ground. it kind of pisses me off
>>8589929Can his legs actually split more than 45 degrees though? Because most LC figures can't.
>>8589938no, it’s just a ball joint with a thigh cut. so that’s disappointing, but I knew that when I bought it. it’s specifically the ankles that surprised mealso I typed green but I meant white
>>8589951also ignore that i have him pointing his sword at himself like a dumbass lol
>>8589952yeah the ankles are pretty good. It's been a long time since I've seen the White Ranger in action so I always get confused with that damn sword.
Anyone got the rerelease of the White Ranger? Were there any differences?
>>8589970i dont have the previous one but comparing what i just bought to pictures of it, it looks like a straight reissuefrom what i understand this was their "strong premiere" before the line started going downhill so it makes sense they wouldn't change anything
>>8589951What good are the ankles when the hips have terrible range? Also you have him holding the sword backwards.
>>8589983I think Saba has more paint details but idk.
>>8589988nice job reading, dipshit
Mandarake has a SOC mega used for $260, looks like it has some scuffs though and the description says there is damage but I can't tell from the translation.Anyway someone have a look and tell me what they think
>>8590291Had myself a look and it looked pretty good, so I bought it. Thanks for the tip, fag
>>8588784Hasbro had to fight for retailer faith for like a year because of legacy's shelfwarming.Lightning IS Yellow selling well kinda broke the mold so hopefully between metallic and needing MMPR wank MMPR Pink will get a double packed second release.
>>8589929I was gonna ask what imports you have where you somehow think these are better, but then I saw you had the sword backwards in >>8589951 and realized you're just retarded
>>8589756>Lazy fucking internsThey aren't interns, dingdong
>>8590623Are you retarded? He's only talking about the ankles and he's right, only Amazing Yamaguchi figures have good ankles on imports.
>>8590623Nice job reading, dipshit
>>8590632*CrybabyIt's just Hasbrofag, the most pathetic troll on this image board
Anyone have a pic of Sphinx/Pumpkin Rapper next to a SOC MegaZord?
Psycho Green and Putty 2 Pack are back in stock on Pulse
Damn that was fast! I received my Titanus from Bluefin. I placed my order Monday afternoon and received it this morning.
Just bought the new Hasbro Megazord, and it ain't half bad (or good). My only problem is the lack of a neck, knees, and wrist swivels, but hey shoulders and hip movement, and elbows help.Also glad to see 5mm ports on him, so he'll be fun to mess with all the recent TFs I've gotten.
>>8575806>They're outsourcing because its cheaper, same reason why they got a new team to work on the line. Lower salaries.Aren't most of Hasbro's lines now made over in Vietnam? I know Transformers moved there around the mid-2010s and Overwatch was also done by (presumably) the same factory as both TF and Thunder Collection, no idea about Star Wars, Marvel or their other lines though. If that's the case, the I can probably see why the quality is not all that great considering they have to juggle like a dozen lines at the same time. And most people think that the lines are either shit, or turning into shit (Star Wars and Transformers especially with regards to the latter)Personally, I just want Goldar and maybe some putties and Pumpkin Rapper. Not really interested with the rest of them.
>>8577705this looks bad but I agree it needs more paint
Where the fuck is my LC Captain Chaku
Technically speaking, does Hasbro now own the rights to VR Troopers and Beetleborgs? What about Mystic Knights?
>>8592071I picked up putties so Goldar can have some goons.
>>8594167Yes, they effectively bought every property owned by Saban
>>8594167Mystic Knights and Mask Rider are in limbo. When Disney bought Saban's IPs in 2001 those two were separate property buys. When they sold Power Rangers back to Saban , BB and VR were certainly involved because they tied the Metal Hero Series with the Sentai into the license, but they never did that with their OG or the Kamen brand and as such no one is really certain if Disney still has them.
>>8594357Well masked rider's original footage is what's in disney limbo, with the RX, J, and ZO footage in ishinomori pro limbo.Just like KRDK's OG footage in addness limbo and ishinomori pro not wanting to reup stock footage and design rights.But Hasbro outright owns the "rights" outside of that for masked rider, saban got all their live action rights back.Which means basically nothing in the long run.
>>8594167Something up with Mystic Knights and Rider because neither of those are being sold or legally streamed anywhere. And considering how shameless Shout Factory has been with the buyout that is telling us something is in dispute on the Hasbro side.
Anyone find these exclusive packaged deluxes in Target yet?
>>8587873>Jason That’s Tommy you retard
>>8595238I think they have a soft street date of December 1st, along with the two packs, but some people have been finding them and the wave with the Z putty.
Hello, just recently got into toys and found out that the Lightning Collection exists. Where is the cheapest place to get the 5 members of the MMPR right now?
>>8595472Red, Yellow, Black, Blue, and Green should be doable retail (either in-stock or pre-order) but you might have to spread your purchases across stores as they may not have all of them in-stock. In the U.S., these figures are MRSP $19.99. Pink Ranger is rare at the moment and currently the only one you'd have to pay over MRSP for (on average she is scalped for $40).
I could’ve sworn I remember hearing that Lightning Collection was supposed to be groundbreaking because it was being worked on primarily by women, which would explain a lot honestly
>>8590291You aren't going to be able to ship anything out of Mandarake without paying more than the product's price in DHL shipping right now anyways.
>>8595805Give it a shot, dude.
>>8595808I order from them constantly and DHL is $30-40 per $300 I spend so long as I’m not buying huge shit
So I finally broke out my Shadow Ranger and finished up his paint apps I began ages ago before moving. I'm still not sure if the outward-facing sides of his helmet's fins are meant to be silver or not. I never noticed until I saw it on the Battle for the Grid game. Otherwise, I think I'm gonna call him done.
>>8595821Nice job.The outside of the fins are meant to be white, as is the edging around the visor. The two lines going down the top of the helmet each side of the badge are also missing paint. Those lines and the lines on the mouthpiece should be the same silver/gunmetal as the paint around the siren lights.
>>8595821you missed the blue on his knuckles and the black stripe down his leg guards
I think Hasbro underestimated how much work there is to making Power Ranger figures and just assumed it was something they can lazily do similar to how people see the show itself
two new figures coming. female psycho gold and sorpina.
>>8597364she has an expression of discomfort.
>>8597361>>8597364Those have to be fan customs. Hasbro would obviously come out with Psycho Silver first (mainly because Psycho Silver is actually from the TV show and what the fuck even is Psycho Gold?) and that Scorpina looks awful, even to a point that Hasbro wouldn't be okay with releasing. Okay for a fan custom, but dreadful for an actual Lightning Collection figure.
>>8597364I can't tell if these are customs or not
>>8597364>>8597361Can't wait for Toku Topics to think these are real and steal this content for another video
>>8597456of course its a custom, hasbro would never put that much paint on a figure
>>8595802Jason Jason David Frank is my favorite Sentai Man
>>8597456Look at the right arm, it’s clearly just a painted Trini. Even Hasbro wouldn’t be dumb enough to sculpt human skin with clothing folds.
>>8579324Yup. Psycho set is down to $70. I've been waiting on it, thus far it's the only decent deal I've gotten out of the whole Black Friday - Cyber Monday thing.
>>8596494>>8596521Didn't have much luck getting the metallic blue I have to stay on the hands (odd, since I didn'thave any issues painting DC Gold's hands), but I think I will at least add some metallic black to the lines on the top of the forehead so it matches the mouthpiece and may add the black to the shin guards. I think I'll try to paint the wrist piece for Omega next.
>>8597909also they wouldn't paint the armor if they could just leave it as a waxy yellow instead of gold
Has anyone dealt with Hasbro to get a replacement head for Dino Thunder white? What's the best way to get ahold of them to get the right head?
>>8598024The only way is to go to the customer support page on Hasbro’s website, and get in the online chat with someone. They’ll ask you to take a picture of your figure with a piece of paper that has a number written on it. The number is something they tell you over chat, to make sure it’s you and you actually own the figure. Then they send you a new head within a week.
>>8597975Those look great together.
>look up a video to remember how the dinostegazord looked like in action>get an ad before the video played>when it's on youtube kids*sight*Anyway, should I talk my friend out of buying the Hasbro Megazord? Is it really as terrible as it looks?
>>8598239Honestly it's kinda pricey for what it is from what I can tell. It's more expensive than the Legacy one was when it came out and looks worse imo. I dunno, I'd be interested to see when Hasbro is going to do a fully combining Megazord set for the Lightning Colleciton but it'd be hard pressed to get me to replace my SoC.
>>8598301Yeah, that's about what I told him. That it's too expensive for what it is. I didn't even know about its price in comparison to the legacy, that just makes it worse even if the Legacy wasn't great either.I was considering it at first too because of how much I hate diecast making the SoC essentially an overpriced turd in my eyes but then I saw it in person and it looked pretty bad, especially when each part of the set is about 20 dollars where I live and the legs look like those shampoo bottle transformers figures that appeared en masse with the fourth movie.Hopefully they make a good one in the future now that they moved Warden over to their team because there's no option for me as of now.
>>8597950I was hoping for $60, optimistically $50. Oh well, maybe they’ll do better for Christmas.
I'm holding off on the fins until I can get a good look at him from the side to determine the proper color (I think I'd go for the lighter silver I lined the back of the helmet with), but I think I'mdone with him for the time being. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out after all this time.
>>8599348It looks really good. Well done.The fins are straight-up pure white. They continue on from the white lining around the visor.
>>8600004>>8600008It looks like a lighter silver, similar to SPD Red's in the second image. Also, it seems I may need to darken the lining on the back of my helmet if I want to be accurate.
>>8600044>Also, it seems I may need to darken the lining on the back of my helmet if I want to be accurate.Nevermind. For some reason, I had it in my head I used the light silver that I painted his little shoulder SPD rank with, rather than the sterling silver/gunmetal gray 50/50 mixture I used on the pauldrons. The helmet lining matches the pauldrons though.
For those that have Astronema. Is it easy to pop the head out?
