Honestly, I think that the overall RPM figure line flat out sucked. The only good thing about that line was the 10 Ranger figures we got. (Core 5, Wings and Paleo Rangers), and the Megazords, which were pretty nice to see.

Make sure to leave the helmets Red and Black so the kids can appreciate the dual color scheme." XD
I noticed that ever since DinoThunder's toyline ended, all of the other seasons from then until Samurai were incorporating repaints of other figures into items like their action sets, which in turn came from previous action sets. Look at the Overdrive Action Sets. A good bit of them had recycled figures. One thing that I miss greatly is the Megazord playsets we'd get, like in Space, Turbo and even Zeo.

Which is another area that I'd like to see Samurai move in on. Create mini playset versions of the Folding Zords, which each could come with a 1 inch tall Mega Ranger, Villain, and micro version of the Zord. Get all 5 main sets together and combine them to make a Samurai Megazord mini figure. I think it'd be cool to see that, and then have a Clawzord playset as well. Honestly, there are a lot of areas that Bandai could explore, but then again, its up to their discretion on what is made and what isn't. I'm just happy with the overall results we've gotten so far, especially since there was a lot of doubt at first about the Bullzord getting a release, and then it did.

Don't know if this is old news or not. Times Square's Toys "R" Us has the Super Samurai display up front in the lobby. The standees are guys only this time around. The symbols are gone. It's just a standard orange wallpaper with the Super Samurai logo. As for merch, it's your standard fare. 4 inch figs, Wii games, leftover Figuarts, every Zord that's out now, etc. Nothing new except for childrens' apparel.

Only new thing I have seen at my TRU outside of the one and only one "Power Cards book" (that I bought) is the Red Ranger Dress Up Set for $17.97.

You said it was guys only? I went today and there was all 5, with red being super. Regardless I might pot some pics after I go to the Kid Icarus Uprising demo event and Nintendo World tomorrow. I'm surprised that they didn't have the bull this time though. One thing they did have though is that poster that was shown off a while back. May pick that up tomorrow.

Which "leftover Figuarts" do they still have? I've been looking for Gold for awhile.

Although I'm not TheNewGuy, I can answer that for you, they have like 4 golds there, but it's up on the second floor display near all of the DC toys, not at the front display, as that is just a buncha reds.

Oh no I meant I was going to the KIU demo event (derped hard, damn laptop said it was the 14th today) and then to nintendo world since I was going to take pics of the upstairs display, should have cleared that up lol.

Might as well add it to this post,







You could see the same image reversed as well outside. The logo was the only PR thing about that whole setup.

Haven't been hunting for anything new in a while. I need to formulate a new plan. The only things I may buy from stores while hunting will probably be restricted to Zords only. As for figures, I think pre-ordering a case might be the way to go for me, since I have started doing custom figures.

Probably because flipping the whole display would look awkward with their visors. If Pink was behind yellow, the kanji sticking out the edge might not look right.

When I got my Godson the Red Shogun Ranger toy, they had a Hydro Bow that actually shot water, which I thought was neat idea for the summer months.

im sry tru, i have a background in promotions in a retail setting, the item, or show based item you are advertising should match the show 100% perfectly, for example a kid sees on the window the shiba symble is on the left of the suit in this display


but the toy has the symbol on the left, might think it as a fake, or knock-off

therefore the signage should look like this

Disney used to mirror the SPD Rangers on the DVD packaging. It's nothing new. Whoever made the display probably assumed that the suits were symmetric and, thus, could flip the photo with no problem.

Assuming the Y-pattern on the suits is designed to resemble a kimono, according to this recent post on Fandom Base, reversing the way a kimono is tied is used for the dead. Yes, you are looking at posing Samurai Zombies here.
