I'm also tired of seeing tons of things we just got from Bandai relatively recently - and that are basically still rotting on shelves.
Armored Black Ranger was last sold in 2014, as an SDCC exclusive.

Legacy Gold Ranger is rotting on shelves because it was awful.

Legacy Armored Red was Gamestop exclusive, and seems to have sold well.

Bandai's last (TV) Goldar was in 2010. Plenty of Pops and other novelty figures, but not from Bandai.

I'm not sure the helmet is an exact match (the tusks look a little broad), but it's a damn sight closer than MMPR Red's. Overall, I think this looks pretty great!

Can we still pre-order Goldar from GameStop? Is there any reason to pre-order or will they be plentiful in store?

Nice, that armored black ranger looks pretty good! Walgreens exclusive though? That is going to be a pain to find without having to drive through 3 different towns. Not many walgreens around here.

Theres no way toknow for sure, but at least in my area gamestop exclusives start out hard to find but then become plentiful. Plus they usually go on sale a month or 2 later to stick it to the people who paid full price.

My only wish from this line is that they'd do a Ninjor figure, but I know he's too obscure for them.

I'd say shadow is more obscure than anything from MMPR so you may be in luck (eventually)

Also is anyone expecting there to be the regular diamond design under the shield on red and black? You can get white ranger's shield off by heating it up and removing the arms and head. He's got a pretty normal body underneath, no grooves for the part like on Legacy. But equally Hasbro wouldn't trade in the chance to sell two would they?

I dunno, Ninjor seems to be getting more recognition these days (Legacy Wars, the Boom comics, those little mini Hasbro figures), so a Lightning figure doesn't sound too far fetched. Maybe not right away, but I can see him coming after all 7 MMPR are released.

I'd love it if we got a Lightning Rito too eventually.

White Ranger doesn't have a diamond on the suit, because they're not in the show.

Shadow has moulded line detail under his vest.

Bandai covered MMPR, ZEO, SPACE*, NinjaStorm*, and Dinothunder.
It's a bit silly to expect Hasbro to avoid these series given their popularity.

Though at this point we are just seeing MMPR material. Of course they were going to put that out.
Zeo was a bit of a eyebrow raise. Now just because Gold Ranger is in a con pack doesn't mean Gold Ranger will be released on his own this year.

Now Red/Black I think are finalized figures given a little bit of extra flair. So yeah they are going to have the full designs sans the gold bands.

Still with Hasbro it's QC issues that are still a problem. Went to the store today. DC Red was nearly perfect except for all the paint missing from the helmet.

I don't know that is such a given. The problem with MMPR is that I own these figures already... in several different versions! There's so much more for Hasbro to tap into. SPD (check), Time Force, and obviously Super Megaforce (for the switching heads). MMPR is great to have released gradually, but I'm significantly less interested now than I would be down the line.

Would you really prefer them to do con exclusives/store exclusives of characters that haven't had many releases? Paying scalper prices for charcters like mystic white or phantom, or pass on another release of a mmpr figure you don't need?

I feel like besides zeo gold these are good choices for exclusives. (Along with other power up modes) but zeo gold can be released with trey's head or a different jason head and it would still be considered "exclusive" curious on how exclusive that will stay.

I'm going to buy them because I never really bought many of bandai's ugly releases. I got the mmpr lightning collection figures (really believing they were committed to doing every ranger and in decent quality lol) and the movie ones.

Sorry, but its always going to be mmpr included in some way or form. Its simply the money maker of the brand, flat out.

In transformers, its always optimus prime and megatron.

In spiderman, its always going to be peter parker.

In superman, its always going to be clark kent, and etc.

Its just how franchises work. Hasbro already did something out of the box by starting with spd shadow. Lets give them time.

Power Rangers isn't other brands. When PR reboots we don't get a new Jason and a new Tommy.

MMPR is but one anchor. Red Rangers are another anchor. Fancy armored heroes are another anchor.

As of right now the reality if the aging general public is familiar with MMPR then other seasons.
Hasbro's goal though should be to change that perfection so they can sell Timeforce merch as well as MMPR.
Yes Power Rangers has other anchors but they aren't those are very broad. There's a difference between A Red Ranger and Jason/Tommy.

Personally I think Power Rangers needs a real reboot like the Boom comics. The history is too disconnected. You aren't selling shows that were around for 1 year to a kid who parents were still in HS. Everything needs a reintroduction and a consistent lore to world build.

Transformers did this. The rebooted movie could have done this if it didn't save those elements until the end of the film.
Out reality for right now is that MMPR is going to be pushed first. So no you probably won't be seeing Wildforce yellow just about yet.

Time is a fickle thing. In a decade they could cover everything but not gonna happen in one year.
