Will the wrist strap be ok for adults? How were the originals as I've never had the chance to own one as they are so expensive, although I used to have a ohranger King Brace which was a bit on the tight side

That's a good question that I'm not sure we have an answer for yet. This is the first artisan (or Legacy even) release of a wrist based morpher.

I've never had a wrist based morpher that didn't fit, but that have all been awfully snug.

The straps are virtually the same design from Dairanger till Time Force. The plastic ones with the emblems on the strap. Unfortunately mine didn't come with the original strap. It has a Degitaizer strap.





The Aura and Kiba have designs imprinted on them however.

I don't know if they'll make them a bit bigger, but more than likely they'll be the same.



EDIT: Here's Gold Ranger Power's Kiba and Aura Changers, you can see the straps.

Well, given it's a premium release, I would hope they would make straps a bit bigger. It's not like the target audience with these retro releases are kids.Then again, the Japanese tend to be smaller than us chunky Americans even in adulthood :p

That thought definitely occurred to me. I tried googling "Japanese average wrist size" and spent like 5 minutes reading some watch collector forum before I realized I was literally just reading what some guys posted about their favorite watches.

So the Legacy Dragon Dagger was on display at Tamashii Fest by a display of the SoC Daizyujin. Granted, that's usually a show for figures. And they had all the Zyuranger Figuarts on display too, and we know there's no hope of seeing a re-release of those. They probably just put it there to compliment Daizyujin.

Although I have no trouble with the normal ones... slightly bigger ones wouldn't be a big deal.

It's my job...

I at one time made a thread that did comparisons between all the Japanese and American versions. It took awhile, but it was a great resource... and I might do it again one of these days. All the info was lost when my computer crashed a long time ago. For resources on Changers/Morphers I'm pretty good. These are things I love. And I'm not trying to be boastful. I've been wrong a few times too... and I've added that to knowledge.

I've been looking at Morphers and Changers for a lot of years, and was only missing 5 Sentai ones originally... out of every single one.

Dude, absolute legend for the info, really appreciated

I never realised we could into so much depth

And thanks to everyone else for the input, it gets me excited though, the possibility of collecting all the morphers again

That base looks awesome, I think if it were maybe a wooden/Solid Green it would look better rather than acrylic, but looks awesome nonetheless

Is the Tamashii Nations event starting today? and where can we see the latest pics?

So I am the only one who notices the gap on the back of the leg Zords that look to allow some movement such as a traditional knee bend? Or is it just me?

Of course, I predicted that such movement would be facilitated by the leg Zords as opposed to the Tyrannosaurus due to the design of the Tyrannosaurus Zord.

They could make a mint selling those bases to all of us that have the Legacy Dagger.

Is there a reputable site to order/pre-order artisan items from, or are we limited to eBay sellers?

First post has links to some of the more common middlemen services.

There's also AnAlpha's shop through FB

He's about as trustworthy as internet strangers come.

Also, he gave me a thumbs up emoticon once, so he's pretty cool.

Most sites like Japan Hero Collectables, Nippon-Yasan, Toku Taku Toys, etc will carry them, but you'll pay higher shipping rates. Now not everyone will carry them, but those are ones to watch out on. Check out the first page for more links.

But one of our members here, AnAlpha, has his own site on Facebook - Tokullectables - https://m.facebook.com/commerce/prod...1431752244936/

One of the best prices you'll find.

So the change in lights and sound are not too much. They sound more fancier and show accurate with an actual BGM track used for transforming. Yeah, I have yet to get into Kakuranger like I did the other seasons used for Mighty Morphin.

So I may not really be in a rush to get them like I am the Aura Changers of Dairanger.

What are you not sold on? Not being a dick, I'm genuinely curious.


I for one wouldn't pass them up. The originals go for $400-$600 dollars. The Kiba being in the lower end of that. To get both for less than you can one... yeah, I'm not skipping them.

the changers look nice, but even the original ones i didnt really care for. they dont have the "gimmick" i want in a changer? i dont know if i'm explaining it right. i got the artisan zyuranger medallions because hell they are medallions that looked incredible! better than the US legacy coins, plus the tribal medallion was included. something that should of been included in the US release. since i already owned the legacy morpher, i didnt go for the zyuranger buckler. didnt feel the need to own the same thing twice, at least in my mind. i did get the kakuranger doron changer. i too owned the original doron changer, so buying the new one was a give in. i love the medallions of the kakuranger team, but the aura changers dont do anything really. you either insert a key or for the main 5, pull down a key. that doesn't really interest me. now if they were to release ohrangers changers, i'd totally buy that! while the movements are similar to the aura changers, i think it does more. flashy lights, crystal with the mirror inside to reflect the light outwards. i just think the ohranger changers do more then the aura changers. just my opinion.
