KB Toys bankruptcy was BS. I mean, the company was screwed and there was no saving it. But the guy who took over a year before bankruptcy was the former CEO of Toys'R'Us. What did he do when the company went bankrupt? Sold the name and all remaining licenses KB Toys had to Toys'R'Us. Shady as hell. And this is coming from me, who was a Store Manager at the time the store closed.

Another fun fact - retailers have more power over what product releases than you would think. Example - Psycho Rangers Legacy figures. The original pitch for the Build A Figure was not Alpha-5 ... but retailers wanted a better guarantee that the figures would sell, so a MMPR-related figure was included as the Build-A-Figure to get retail buy-in.

Why? Because the retailers only want to buy product that is going to sell and not sit on the shelves. MMPR continues to sell (I will still argue that it's because the ONLY product they release is MMPR) so retailers continue to want more MMPR. That is most likely the reason for those non-transforming Legacy Zords and the Legacy flipheads.

So before we shun Bandai for making product we don't want ... sometimes it's the retailers who want it, and the toy company obliges.
Hold up a minute - WHAT?! The Psychos had another BAF in mind before the retailers forced in Alpha 5? Holy crap! I wonder what the original pitch for the Psycho BAF was. I bet cash money it was either the Mega Voyager/Makes sense as that Megazord fought the Psychos the most or Dark Specter/Their source of power.

OK, so went to my local Walgreens today for the heck of it, secretly hoping to find Zeo (but knowing it's probably gonna be five weeks before I see anything Zeo / DT pop up, that's IF Walgreens is the one that's picking them up). I expected to see more metallics, and what do I see? In Space Pink and Black! Has Space popped up in anyone else's Walgreens yet? This is a new thing to me. I was aware MMPR white and Yellow were showing up, but not Space.

I found In Space Pink at my local Walgreens in Grants Pass, and she was the one I needed to complete the Astro Megazord. Last time I was there, MMPR Yellow was there, but when I got In Space Pink, Yellow was gone.

Sweeeeeet! Couple these sightings with the DT blue being found, and it looks like Walgreens is gonna be the place to get them!

Then allow me to to be the first to say... LET THE HUNT BEGIN!!!

So there's been a lot of sightings of the new wave. So I did some amateur research.

There's been 10+ Zeo Gold listings on Ebay, 5+ of DT Red, DT Blue, and Zeo Green.

No sightings for Zeo Yellow, no eBay listings (sold or otherwise) of Zeo Yellow ...

So either kids are buying her before anyone else does, scalpers are passing her up entirely, or she's not in the assortment.

Maybe shes one in a few cases? That wouldnt be horrible. It would make female figures sought after again, so no worries of them peg warming. I cant imagine scalpers passing on her and kids buying her up over gold or any of the others seems odd. Same with collectors.

She is part of the series 4 release according to the back of the box.



Read somewhere that case has 3 gold rangers 1 green ZEO and one red and blue Dino thunder.

Also!

Are those new Legacy Zoe's out in the wild?

eBay
Series 4 contains the five figures pictured, but the initial wave of figures for series 4 does not include Tanya. The breakdown is 3-1-1-1, with the 3 being Gold.

This is Bandai trying to counteract the pegwarming of Tori and Ashley (and to a lesser extent, Kimberly, but she was 2/case which was insane from the get-go).

They should have included another DT Red instead of another Gold, which is going to pegwarm really bad now. A 2-2-1-1 split would have a better if we believe Reds sell no matter what. Plus that gives more variety to the assortment.

I can’t fault their thinking with Kimberly. She’s supposedly more popular than Zack or Billy, so that is why they decided to do 2/case with her. It backfired on them. Now their strategy has become “Let’s ship no girls in most case assortments or at all.”

The question now is where we’ll see Tanya. Maybe they reached some sort of agreement with TRU or Target and they’ll have the assortment with her. Hopefully.

Yup!

That gold ranger is going to hurt this line more than anything in this line yet.
