There was already incentive that IF you were some of the lucky few able to find a set of the Metallic Rangers, you could have a complete set of at least one team.

But now, I'm just beyond pissed that they included the sword with with set, because unlike the SDCC Red Ranger, this one isn't chromed out, so there's zero chance of getting this any other way than this sure to be overpriced on ebay set.

I'd like that Megazord, but not at $60. Maybe it'll come down on eBay if I wait it out long enough...

That would mean someone would have to sell it at a loss, not even including shipping. How often does that happen?

Ooh I didn't even think about Green and White being metallic.

I'll be pretty upset if this is the only way to get his Zeo Power Sword.

For those wondering why they didn't include black DT, I believe they are trying to follow what happens in the show, where only those 3 character appeared in his dream.

Like wise in this toy, if you look at the box properly, the window of the box is actually the visor of black DT, showcasing that the 3 figures are inside his head, similar to how the 3 characters appeared in his dream/head in the tv show.

Still, it's a bummer that they didnt include black DT in it, especially since they sort of had it already as shown in one of Bruno's earlier video, at the 5min 45s mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUDXYB5HKBI&t=20s

I DO like that they include a white holster for the Dragon Dagger. It's accurate to Fighting Spirit.
And the Metallic White Ranger goes perfectly with the rest of the Metallic team. Metallic armor was only for White, Red, Blue, Black, Yellow, and Pink. Sorry Green!

If they wanted to be 100% accurate Green would've had the silver stripe.
It does have the silver stripe...

1- con excluvies suck major ass
2 - this line just keeps degrading more and more!

There will never be a perfect ranger line release.
There will always be issues.

I'm just gonna get the Legacy ZEO role-play items and then I'm done!
I'm gonna return the white mmpr tomorrow...

correct me if I'm wrong... but didn't they kinda announce at SDCC that the legacy figures would now come with weapons AND a build a figure? is that starting with psychos or do you think they were able to work it out in time for Zeo/Dino Thunder? seem odd they would make a Zeo weapon just for a con exclusive when at this point they know and have acknowledged that everyone wants weapons included.

maybe not for every set of figures but def the more popular ones. id say Zeo is high on the popularity list.

First it was every ranger ever, now it won't be
No weapons
Bad sculpts
Bad paints
Con exclusives with weapons
2nd waves different look, added weapons

The figurine line is shot!
There is no consistancy except that there is a lack of it....

From what I recall, they said Psycho Pink would come with the Savage Sword and the Sixths would come with weapons. Nothing about the main rangers getting BAF pieces and weapons at the same time.

I agree that it is sort of odd to make the Zeo sword a con exclusive, but I'm not reading into it further than that because they can do more with exclusive releases than they can with retail releases.

We haven't heard anything about them stopping "every ranger ever" (as ambitious as it is).

I think the retail MMPR metallic figures are a one-off release. We won't see second waves of figures with weapons for every figure. This is an exclusive release so it operates a little differently than retail. I have faith that they'll address the weapon issue in a satisfying manner.

I personally disagree that the sculpts/paint are bad, but that is a matter of preference. The other figures we get aren't spot on either.....

No weapons is bad, but its still bad if they make figures with weapons? Who said it wont be every ranger ever?

I think that is overreacting to this set just a bit,
Calling it degrading.

And as far as all the other points, to each his own.
I have complained about this line before myself... But at the end of the
Day, it is nice to have these misb all together. They look great as a line.

Well for the psychos I do remember them showing weapons for all of them and the build a figure alpha pieces. Maybe it’s cause they are a copy of each other with different paint.

There Psychos are were the weapons start to come, along with a smaller stupid BAF (not that I'm saying Alpha is stupid, I just hate the whole BAF concept). Zeo and Dino Thunder are too far along I believe to have that changed implanted for them, plus we already know that Zeo has the Megazord BAF.
