Has there ever been a spinning head figure for Green Samurai with an accurate mouthpiece? I'd be okay with a swappable helmet, but from an engineering standpoint, it would be neat to see.

Same goes for Megaforce Gold. Has that had an accurate, articulate helmet? I remember a Japanese figure got close, but the helmet wasn't seamless in Silver mode.

With a helmet that spins and a shield that detaches?
A shield that detaches and cracks your shelf.

Cam's baseball bat is now a mandatory Power Rangers accessory. Thanks Megaforce.

The sheath can detach with the sword to become a bat.



In the extended length Legendary Battle, Orion uses the bat. (time 1:19)

Hurricanger was so weird. A microphone-sword-bat. And it worked. Why couldn't Ninninger pull off that aesthetic?

Ninninger always felt like the Dollar Store bootleg of Hurricanger. Like, same general weird theme but just looked a bit off with the weapons and zords.

I got the same sense, but I still can't place why. Maybe it's just modern designers showing their influences, in a derivative way. It's the opposite of Abaranger's inspired take on Zyuranger elements.

The gashapon gimmick helped tie everything together in Hurri, the subtheme is literally "random toy". The Legacy figures totally missed this by excluding weapons. Not many weapons have as much charm as the Sonic Fin.

I mean, if we want to open a can of worms, sure!

While we are on the subject of 6ths and their weird items...I can't wait for Wild Force Silver, so prop makers can give us an amazing glowing pool table for that finisher.

Ninja Storm ignored the baseball motif. Despite being a silly season, Ninja Storm avoided some of Hurricanger's elements. Weren't the umbrellas mostly cut too?

It showed up in 2014, during the Action Hero line. Oddly, this only included a bat. Maybe Bandai forgot about NS' omission, or maybe it was a cheeky nod to the footage from Legendary Battle.

I still perfer the two SL Green Samurai figures for my essential GSR. Plus he fits in well with the SH Figuarts.

I consider Hurricanger the best series as far as aesthetics are concerned. I dare to say it has the best ninja costumes the franchise has done.

Ninninger has a good and unique color scheme when you add Green into the mix but those white gloves and boots feel so uninspired. And it feels a bit less ninja without the swords on their backs.

They were.

And it's a freaking shame they never thought of a way to show the umbrellas. I remember when I saw them for the first time. At that right moment I thought "it might look silly yet it's so darn epic, shame on Disney for skipping it".

I also like the version where they use pieces of cloth. But they pale when compared to the umbrellas.
