LSR? SMF? OOD?!

Good riddance, Bandai.

Wait, those are OFFICIAL?
Yes, those are REAL!
IIRC, they were available for very short period, since 2017-movie and Ninja Steel merchandise were hitting the store by then.

In the realm of things that would hopefully be realistic:
  • 5" Rita Repulsa figure
  • Weapons packs for each team of Legacy Power Rangers they released, including MMPR - some of us didn't want those metallic repaints just for the weapons
  • The Legacy buildable Alpha 5, if it got far enough in tooling to be completed
  • Any remaining Legendary Ranger Keys, especially those we saw prototypes of, or could be easy repaints such as the "New Powers" (Dairanger), Female Samurai Red, and Ninja Storm Green Samurai Mode

I put together this list a while back of Ranger Keys that Bandai could still do:



In the realm of things that aren't going to happen, but I wish they would:
  • Legacy Shogun Megazord
  • Legacy Tor
  • Legacy Ninjor figure
  • A Legacy figure or Legacy Megazord of the 1995 Ninja MegaFalconzord (I know it's a crappy design, but it's still a part of PR history, and the only Megazord we never got in any toy form)

Very comprehensive! I agree about the Legacy Rita and Shogun Megazord.

The keys, I'm kinda fine leaving them where they are.

I think for Movie Ninja Megafalconzord we start asking Hasbro for that now, because it won't matter if it uses different ports or joints because it won't need to combine with anything else.

With all the old stuff they're putting out I can't help but Wonder if they've put out a few small amounts of the movie yellow and black morphers. That would be nice. but at least we have repro labels.

I would agree with Shogun Megazord, but I feel they would ruin it. Honestly, as a person who loves the legacy line including most flaws like butterscotch paint, the mistakes they've made on the last few zords, especially Ninja Megazord, are inexcusable. If the original ninja megazord had no problems moving it's arms up and down without moving the bear's legs, then that's something that should have NEVER happened with the new version. THAT mistake was unforgivable. Aside from the loose falconzord connection, the rest of the megazord was almost perfect. If they were to rush out a Shogun Megazord, we'd be complaining, "You should have left it alone, BoA you mother***!" Won't even get in to zordbuilder stuff. But even for completion, I'm afraid it just wouldn't be worth the frustration we'd likely endure. We still can't name a single legacy megazord they haven't made a horrific mistake on.

Weapons pack should be on the bottom list as BoA said they WON'T do that, and that was when TRU existed.. In a TRU-less world, it's impossible.

Damn, Xeno, that was a cold blooded burn!

But seriously tho, as much as I have loved Bandai, I think itís safe to say that the Lightning Collection is a great step forward for the Power Rangers brand.

Long live Hasbro!

Lightning Collection isn't just a step forward, it's basically a middle finger to Legacy. Hasbro's slideshow was essentially a point-by-point breakdown of everything people complained about with the Legacy figures and how Hasbro is going to be doing it better. People complain about the weird anatomy on Legacy? Hasbro promises "real world proportions and textures." People complain that Legacy figures don't come with their individual weapons? Lightning Collection comes with "all weapons and accessories," and, you know what, throw in some FX parts and civilian heads just because. And they're scaled in 6" like most normal figures.

Yep that's the way it should be. Like Marvel Legends but PR instead. And villains! Don't forget the villains! Especially Scorpina!

Watch it get discontinued within at least a year due to alleged "budget issues" (notice that I put "budget issues" in quotation marks because as we know, they most likely do have the budget, but will probably be too busy spending it with their already established home brands+Disney brands).

You still have, after several months of saying things like this, absolutely nothing that points to this happening.
