I just switched my morpher plates with a pair of clicks metal ones and my morpher can't open under its own power now. Do I need to get a metal x y axis as well? Or can I just lubricate the plastic parts to get it to work? Thanks in advance!!

And if anyone could let me know if there is a way to restore and get rid of scuffs and scratches on the clear red piece inside the morpher I would be very greatful!!
You don't have to but you should if you'd like for them to open properly.

I just loosened the x y axis screws a little bit and now it slides open on its own.... Not easily or fast, but it works.

I just received a new Power Morpher, it was sealed in it's original packaging.
It however has a loose handle. Any ways to fix that?

Personally don't know about the handle issue bud, but I would like to take a moment to recommend Powerprops on ebay to anyone that owns a power morpher. I just got a set of her weathered plastic/resin (pretty sure there plastic) power coins in the mail and they look amazing with plastic or metal plates!! She even has a Titanus/King Brachion coin that I've never seen before. I'll post pices when I get a decent functional camera =p.

On a side note, is there anyway to make a prop makers coin fit more securely in a morpher? I've got a set of Powerprops weathered coins and I love em, but 3 of them don't lock in place at all. Any way to alter the coin to make it fit better?

Which way is the proper orientation? I've seen it where the button is on the bottom left, and others where the button is on the top right. Which way should I put by stickers to make it accurate?

----
Did some research and it looks like button on the bottom is the proper way from the show. I was a bit confused because the toy had it on the top. Good to know for when I put new plates on it.

Depends if you wanna make it "show accurate".

In the show they hold it with the button at the bottom, yet in the movie its with the button at the top.

Wonder if anyone could help a UK based morpher owner. Own 3 power morphers and want to respray them to look better.

Which is the best paint that I could get in the UK? Both Gold and Silver colours.

If you had searched, you would've seen that this has been asked a few times in this thread alone. Testors is the suggested brand. Specifically for silver, Testors 1242.

I'm really sorry if this is a double post, I'm not totally certain about the 24 hour limit.

But does anyone have any tips on this?

you are fine. you are asking a new, relevant question.

as to making them fit, I am unsure. the only suggestion I would have is take some resin and apply a small millimeter or two addition to the tabs

Hey, guys. I just got a raggety old Power Morpher (the red interior plastic is broken, which is a bummer...it's barely visible with the plates on, but it still bothers me). Anyway, I thought I'd test with painting, since this is in terrible condition anway. I removed the plates, decals, so on so forth. But when I sprayed my primer, it ended up really grainy. Have any of you had this happen? If so, do you have a suggestion to what I did wrong? I used a matte white spray primer used for plastic models, so I knew it was safe for plastic.

In the same train of thought, what's a good way to remove the paint if I don't like it? I was thinking of soaking it in simple green for a few days. Can anybody support this, or give me a better option? I'd really like to try again.

To get rid of the grain, use some 220 or 400 grit sandpaper. I know a lot of people on here are against sanding, but if you use 220 grit, it should only get rid of the bumps.

Also make sure that no debris or dirt is getting into the primer as you wait for it to dry.

I just finished customizing my first morpher, complete with Blinddrummer's decals. I have to say I like it a lot! I still have a set of gold morpher plates on the way from PowerProps, because I was afraid I would royally screw up. I'll probably order more decals for those plates. But i sanded down the grain from the primer, did 2-3 layers of gold, followed by 2 of clear gloss. It doesn't look perfect, but it looks damn good!

I have white and green ranger coins on the way from click. When I get those, i'll take pics with MY plates, not powerprops, and see if I can figure out how to post them on here. I wasn't that confident, but it looks 10x better after you get the decals and a coin in there!

Simple green is good, you can also try Purple Power for a few minutes or hours depending on the paint used. For example I used Krylom Metallic Gold and when I try to remove it to use Testors metallic gold it was kinda hard to remove so I let it soak more time.
