if 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

>>8575401
When 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
>>
>>8575401
Why 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.
>>
>>8575438
It 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 Goldars
Also should I just wait for the single release MM Green? Or is the two pack better?
>>
>>8575277
That'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!
>>
>>8575441
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?
>>
>>8575447
Red 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
>>
>>8575447
Red 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 show
I 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 autism

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.
>>
>>8575477
>I guess when your standards are this low
This 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.
>>
>>8575125
You 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).
>>
>>8575268
oh my god what the fuck
>>
>>8575452
Thanks 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?
>>
>>8575714
Hopefully after they learn their lesson about this 8 inch fuckery.
>>
>>8575714
never 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
>>
>>8572388
They're outsourcing because its cheaper, same reason why they got a new team to work on the line. Lower salaries.

>>8572549
Its 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.

>>8572890
Astronema looks okay. I hope she looks better in person.

>>8573183
This 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.

>>8573635
I rather them re-release King Sphinx and Rapper at the Goldar scale.

>>8573645
People will buy them regardless.

>>8573824
Thank you! I was going to request this pic. Can you do one with Legacy Jason + any other Legacy MMPR rangers, Goldar, and Pumpkin Rapper?

>>8575125
That sucks for the Lightning collectors who were looking forward to the villains.

>>8575252
Now 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.

I 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.

>>8576023
That's okay, just find them at the next Pulse Con!
>>
>>8576056
I 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

>>8576082
Warden worked on the Dino Fury Megazord. They stated it during their last fan Friday stream.

>>8576060
Watch they reissue it in a 5 pack with the main team and that'll be the only way you can get dino thunder yellow

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.
>>
>>8577422
8 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
>>
>>8575872
source?
>>
>>8577422
6 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.
>>
>>8577439
just 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?
>>
>>8575548
this is the problem with every fandom. there's shiteaters who will gobble up anything with the brand on it so change doesn't happen.

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.
>>
>>8577904
honestly seems like they just made them 8 inches so they could justify that $30 pricetag.
>>
>>8578030
Just 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.

Pumpkin Rapper never had black eyes or a black mouth. Only the reason fan art has him like that.

Yeah that looks off. They needed to be Goldars size. Bigger than the rangers but no monster should be bigger than what they made Goldar.

Alphas fine though

this is a WalMart exclusive

I 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.

Ran 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

Anyone know if Amazon will have Black Friday deals for LC? Maybe a drop in the psycho set again?

She'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.

Does 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.
>>
>>8580249
I 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.
>>
>>8580249
Use 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.
>>
>>8580267
Yeah 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.

She'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.

There 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.

While King Sphinx is irksomely tall, Pumpkin Rapper just has a normal sized body and a massive pumpkin head.
>>
>>8584466
A 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.

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/?
>>
>>8585791
I 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.

>>
>>8586015
Well, 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.

>>
>>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
>>8586786
OH! 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.

Yes 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.

>>8587873
I'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.
>>
>>8587873
The 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.

>>
>>8588041
If 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.
>>
>>8588528
The 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

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.).

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.
>>
>>8589574
They 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
>>
>>8589929
Can his legs actually split more than 45 degrees though? Because most LC figures can't.

no, 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 me

>>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.
>>
>>8577705
this looks bad but I agree it needs more paint

Technically speaking, does Hasbro now own the rights to VR Troopers and Beetleborgs? What about Mystic Knights?

>>8592071
I picked up putties so Goldar can have some goons.
>>
>>8594167
Yes, they effectively bought every property owned by Saban
>>
>>8594167
Mystic 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.
>>
>>8594357
Well 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.

Something 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.

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?

>>8595472
Red, 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

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.
>>
>>8595821
Nice 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.

Those have to be fan customs.

The 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.

Anyway, should I talk my friend out of buying the Hasbro Megazord? Is it really as terrible as it looks?

Honestly 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.

Yeah, 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.

I 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.

It looks really good. Well done.
The fins are straight-up pure white. They continue on from the white lining around the visor.

It 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.

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?
