So, this year, they've taken soul chips and Ranger keys, and mashed them into some unholy abomination of collectable gimmicks?

Personally, I prefer series that build up to some of this stuff rather than "congratulations, new Rangers - here are your weapons, your vehicles, your zords, your Megazords. Good luck with your first fight."
I have said similar things many times. Megaforce and Super Megaforce were the worst for this. The SMF premier, especially.

"Oh, there's a tougher Armada. Here, here's some more powerful morphers and zords."

"Wait, if you had more powerful stuff lying around, why the fuck didn't we have that to start with?"

"There's a simple explanation for that..."

I like stand alone but I am always a fan of continuations of the same power base. But I like details over simplicity..

I'll definitely be picking up the RyuSouls, because there's going to be original ones included, and I need to complete that collection lol.

I am curious to see what will be in each set. If this information is public, does that mean that pre order will open soon ?
Good to see that they keep selling complete set for minipla !

Or they could have spent an episode or two where the Rangers had to go on a quest to obtain the new powers. That was one of the problems with the approach they went with, the power-ups were unearned. Can you imagine if, in MMPR season 3, Rito destroyed the Thunderzords and fried the power coins, so Zordon just pulled a new set of coins out of a drawer and they continued on as if nothing happened? They had to shut down the whole command center in season 2 to create the White Ranger. The approach Super Megaforce took was just lazy writing.

I was thinking about this, minipla usually release only things that are already available in DX toys. What do we have so far ? Set 01 could be kishiryuoh 3 knights, and set 02 would be tiger lance and milNeedle and all souls as one soul is also a head for kishiryuoh. It would be, if true, a first that a set doesn't sell a robot on his own (last year EX and vs vehicule 3 were not available as set for example and I don't count the summer movie robot as well)

So the blade "swallows" the not-ranger keys?

Not really impressed though the show can make good use of the gimmick.
