As I've said earlier. The MMPR Red helmet is a perspective nightmare. To get an accurate reference you need helmet pics at various tilts. At one angle its an oval like the movie version posted here. At other points its a circle in a front profile.
Well what I'm really confused about is... why do you need reference photos at all? You've got the actual helmet, they've put it on display more than once. Scan the damn helmet.

Honestly. I still donít think the helmet is THAT far off.

Itís missing the white trim around the visor, so you have the red and black without separation, so itís giving an odd look. Basically the visor looks larger because the separation isnít painted.

Well that makes more sense, store exclusive. Annoying though, around here Walgreens are sketchy getting exclusive pops I can only imagine a figure like that...well who knows I guess we'll see. May pick it up, though unsure despite liking it.

Is it just me or do the noses on the Jason faces seem way too wide/big for the overall face. Itís like they put Ernieís nose on Jasonís face.

This, forever. The helmets exist and therefore they should always be the most accurate part...especially when human headsculpts are in the equation. Even then, a simple google search shows what the helmet should look like, so..Hasbro really is slacking

Jason looks like he got his wisdom teeth taken out and his face is swollen. Not a big fan of them, but wasn't really planning on displaying the civilian heads anyways so meh.

I can live with the helmets. Red ranger helmet to me looks better than the lightning one, and bandai had the brand for how long and couldn't even get it right? Even when the legacy collection still had quality put into it.

Zeo its not accurate but I don't hate it either.

But those Jason heads are hideous. Trash-worthy if you ask me.

Maybe they'll throw in a mini paper bag to go along with the figs

You are not wrong. It seems odd that this is even a problem. They would need to go back in clean it up but they'd have the basic shape.. The only issue I could see is if they can't modify the helmets for a good scan. The helmets aren't chrome but they are shiny.

these new pictures are making me like the figures more. I know I was not super excited when I first saw the wave one official pictures but in hand I thought the figures looked amazing. I'm sure its going to be the same for these guys. from the new pictures,

I like the shape of the red rangers helmet. I think the lack of the white trim really hurts the overall look. The power sword looks very nice. I'm glad that the handle is painted black. The Legacy version looked very off being red. The belt being very thin is off putting at first but to me its not a deal breaker. It just makes me questions Hasbro design choices.

Gold rangers visor not being flat is also an odd design choice. It looks really good in some pictures and really off in others so its hard to say how I feel about it. I also really like that black wash on the shield though. I like the different power staff variations but the missing paint apps really hurt this weapon.

the MMPR Black looks pretty good in the one picture we got. I think they nailed that head sculpt.

Its good to know that I am not the only one that thinks those Jason headsculpts are terrible.
They look NOTHING like him!!

They look more like when Robot Chicken is using a fat, nerdy character in one of their clips.
Its sad that the automorphin figure looks more like Jason than the figures with 25 years of technological advancement behind them.

Haha, those Jason heads look hilarious! Overall those Red/Gold rangers look pretty good, though not 100% show accurate, they still look much better than the bandai versions. I do wish hasbro would try harder to be more accurate and do something about quality control on their paint applications.

As to Gold Rangers visor not being flat. That was probably done to create depth and possible help the paint apps. Depth is going to stand out in various lighting.
Not saying that's what they should have done but it could explain their madness.

Good thing thereís a panel at SDCC in under two weeks where it would be prime opportunity to ask questions about helmet and facial scans.

I donít mind the Gold Ranger helmet that much, but the visor should be flat. As for the ASJ heads, I think theyíre too round. They look like him now as opposed to him back in the show. Luckily, they can still correct these issues when the single releases come out.

If they choose to release foot soldiers, what footsoldier it would be first to be released? Putties? Tengas?

I'd love it if they dived head first into the comics and gave use a few sentries. For standard show stuff, I'd love if it were Quantrons or Cogs. Vivics would be cool too.

A sentry could be interesting (an exclusive probably). Wonder if they could get away with it being a re-tool, or if that would be too off-model (they're all a bit chunkier than their respective bases)

Putties are most iconic, probably those. I would love a Tenga.

They could probably retool for Mastodon and Tyrannosaurus sentries, but Saber Tooth and Pterodactyl sentries are too different from the base forms.

I mean, yeah, Putties.

Putties, but they could be really creative as there's MANY different types and I don't mean just Z-Putties.
