Are you talking about a Legacy 6-pack or are you talking about having one seasonal wave be a variety of rangers from all the seasons instead of the split we have now? I can't see either one doing well tbh. A 6-pack would be too expensive and selling a randomized wave like that could clog up the shelves even further if they're not popular. The idea behind the split was that they could pair a more popular team with a less popular wave in order to get figures moving.

This backfired because all the females, no matter the team, are pegwarming instead.

I'm quite surprised they didn't do this in the first place for that specific reason. Maybe they didn't want to cannibalize sales of the 5" figures. Then again, they have a variety of different types of action figures anyway.

*dreams* I need a Legacy Ryu Violet, Sasori Orange, and ShiShi Red Orion.

As far as we know, he is still being released with Psychos/Dino White. The larger image that those came from doesn't include any of the Psychos/Dino White, but these seem to be concept designs anyway. We won't know until it's on shelves or Bandai chooses to give us a straight answer.

Got my 7 metallic rangers today. Metallic red is much better than the comic con version from last year and honestly I feel they should have switched them if they wanted the sdcc to truly be exclusive.

Zeo Ranger V feels like it has wired articulation but it looks cool.

For anyone that has all three Zeo Ranger V, sdcc mmpr and nycc movie red look great together. As for metallic white, Saba and the gloves look great as I wasn't expecting them to match but the joints look off due to them not being metallic but small nitpick.

I went to TRU this afternoon, and found some interesting Legacy things. Among their offerings were several of the movie Rangers (I think they had at least one of everyone, and two Alpha-5s), two Dustins, one Tori, the Black/Yellow/Blue Space Rangers, and - the strangest thing of all - the 'metallic' Mighty Morphins in their original series packagings with the Build-A-Megazord pieces. Pretty diverse cross-section of offerings, huh?

Those MMs threw me (so, naturally, I posted about them on Twitter), because they definitely had their appropriate original-release packaging (notice the lack of "limited edition" on Red), but they were the 'Metallic Armor' figures. If someone did buy the Metallics just to get the weapons and switched out the originals - packing them back up THAT neatly - then, more power to them for being honest enough to not just return an empty package, unlike the handless Yellow NSt Ranger that I found.

Oh, and I found some RangerNation reusable shopping bags for $3 each.

No, I think some asshole retuned the metallic figures in the original boxes.

But what do I know? Bandai has thrown things completely out of left field.

There is nothing honest about theft, regardless of how the theft occurs. They returned the items for a full refund, but did not return a full item.

That’s certainly what happened. See it a LOT with Marvel Legends. Saw this post on Twitter today. The depths some people will sink to never cease to amaze me.

I know there's nothing honest about theft and fraudulent returns, but they packaged them back up SO NEATLY. That took some effort, there. (I harken back to that Gosei Ultimate I found in a different box back at the tail end of Super Megaforce at Meijer, which was thrown into a Q-Rex box with zero accessories, or arms, IIRC. That's why I thought that these were genuinely what should have been in there, and why it threw me for a loop.) That Deadpool return in the other photo is something that definitely should NOT have been taken back.

Guess this is where those Metallic Rangers from Walgreens wound up. I thought someone buying Blue and Pink together was kind of odd.

I remember hearing stories of people buying dvd players and returning the boxes with bricks of some sort in them. That was more discrete than this. lol

Being an asshole and a Fraudulent return yes but I wouldn't call it theft. A person returned a metallic figure in a box with a megazord piece. It screws over a collector like us that knows better but a to someone that doesn't know they are getting what was promised in series 1, a red ranger and a megazord piece,

Also said buyer did buy the series 1 figure and likely didn't return that as well so said person is an asshole but I wouldn't say straight out thief.

A thief is the guy that took the legacy Red and Green in of my Target last year and then put the empty boxes back on the shelf.

It's theft because they kept a part of figure they're returning.

So you can make the MegaTigerzord or use these as Zordbuilder legs.
