I found Walgreens Exclusive Metallic Blue Ranger, but he seems to have his calves swapped. I compared him to Gamestop Exclusive Space Blue Ranger and found they are definitely reversed. You can tell because the boot cut joint never lines up just right with the knee. Anyone else have this problem with their MMPR and Metallic figures?

I feel out of place here. The only Power Ranger things I have seen at my Walgreens are leftover movie figures. Am I looking in the wrong aisle? lol

Lol! No you aren't... but here's the deal. Walgreens resets around this time for Christmas. So some stores haven't reset, in the middle of, or have. Sometimes, you just have to ask. I've found Walgreens employees... especially the managers in the vests to be very helpful. A lot of the stuff is in the back for stocking after the aisles have been reset, and they aren't afraid to look. Some will even tell you the day the truck arrives.

But here's your problem.

Walgreens typically shares stock. Meaning a wave of figures can be split between multiple stores. In the case of Dragon Ball Super... each store gets 2 figures. There's 3 in Series 2.... so you have to hunt cause the other store in the area might have the other figure.

In the metallics case... some stores seem to be getting them all, splitting them up, or in my case... getting MMPR White and Yellow instead. If there's 2 figures of anything... that's all they'll get till they sell. Some stores will order them, but only get what they get, they can't ask for specific figures.

I went to two Walgreens in my "area." Both had a full case of both Metallics and Dragon Stars.

Yeah, DRW found full cases too... but also friends in bigger cities that are seeing the 2 per store. Definitely wasn't saying that there couldn't be full waves.

Probably has to do with location and how much stock they move. I have 5 within a 10 mile round trip and know for a fact they share stock.


And don't take that offensively, totally not my goal. Some stores are getting full cases, some share stock. Walgreens is weird.

I also wasn't trying to offend anyone! I hope that isn't how I came off.

I've only found one metallic figure so far, a blue ranger in a smashed up box.

Movie red helmet at Mentor TRU. Full set of movie Legacy figures (including red!) They even restocked the Thunder Megazord. (There's like 4 of 'em there.)

I don't think you know what the phrase, completely agree means then.

They aren't exclusive... not sure why you're calling them exclusives.

The Walgreens in Lorain, OH, had the Metallic Blue and Pink out this morning at $20 each, with the only other PR figures there being the Nutcracker NSt Rangers.

Edit: ...Makes me wonder why I can't remember which Walgreens I visited. I was at the Lorain one by the old Super Kmart, not Avon Lake. Whoops!

I was being hilarious. I know they aren't actually exclusive.

I can confirm now that they are designed to come reversed like this. I tried to switch them back but the pegs are different sizes. If you check your male MMPR Legacy figures, I suspect you'll find that their boots are all irreparably flawed by design.

Found two Reds, two Blacks, and a Yellow at one store (left the duplicates), and one lone Blue at another, and empty spots on the shelf or no spot on the shelf at a few others. Just happy I just need one more.

Well that's not too far for me. Maybe it's time to go looking around my neck of the woods.
