Iím planning on getting the intermediate Zords just to hold me over till the transforming ones are released. One thing that I was kind of disappointed about after watching some YouTube reviews is the villains donít have the same hip joints that the Rangers do. Itís not a huge deal but it wouldíve been nice to have Blaze be able to do everything the red ranger can do.

These figures are cool. I had to paint the zipper part but that's ok.

I finally got some time to open up these figures. Damn they are amazing, very realistic body type that's for sure. Yellow also shares the same height as the guys, and she doesn't suffer from bandai's tiny feet. So it's easy to pose her and get to stand without any issues. The only problem I have is getting the figure to hold the weapons properly. The glove is definitely tight.

so at the same price of $10, we're getting larger, better basic figures than what Bandai put out?

Bandaís figures were more blocky compared to these figures. These are almost like the figurarts body type. Also I get the price hike because a lot of work went into these figures and we are finally getting detailed weapons again. Also hasbro is went that extra mile to give us personalized packaging for each figure. So I would say the price hike is fair.

I feel like hasbro took a lot of pride in their work while in Bandaiís time they tried to cut corners when ever they could.

actually not much of a price hike...weren't the old Bandai action-hero assortments about $10 anyway? And they often left off paint deco on the rear of figures

Price hike? Power Ranger Action Figures have been $10 since at least Dinocharge if not Megaforce.

Watching the guy who did a review on the blaze figure, So for the basic figures, the 4" line, do the feets only go forward and back? or is there a swivel joint he didnt show?

No im talking about the joint that moves the leg. The joints on the hip to leg.
see what I mean? I'm not seeing a side to side joint. Just front to back.


and really? Theyre 6"? lmao, i figured they were small considering the blaze figure was small in the reviewers hand.

Theyíre 6Ē.

Blaze and Tronics donít have the same hip joint as the Rangers. So yes, only front to back, no side to side.

I'm probably be bashing Red Ranger's posable upper legs onto Blaze until we get a proper LC figure of him.

That is, when the figures start trickling into stores down here...

I'm aware. You can cement them back together once everything's been cut-up and put into place. I'm not exactly a virgin when it comes to doing toy surgery.

Wow, didnt mean to offend dude. Just that with joints like these are usually reverse where blazes are from the leg to torso where the rangers are probably torso to leg. If you can pull it off awesome.

From Toys R Us Canada, it's available now, but does anyone else noticed it's on the wrong hand?

I hope it doesn't awkwardly fit the left, where it should be.
