Well, in all fairness I think that is the holiday season jacking up the price.

With a re-release on tap for February, it will drop below $100.00 again
for the US version.

The base is really cool, and I'm sure the sounds will be neat, but I got the legacy dragon dagger when it originally came out. Since they look to be exactly the same, I'm gonna pass. I also feel bad for BoA, here they are putting out all these awesome legacy items. People are like "ZOMG! This is everything I've ever wanted!" Then BoJ swoops in reuses the same molds, change some sounds, and maybe add 1 or 2 minor things, and then people change their tune to "ZOMG! This is everything I've ever wanted! Way better than those shitty legacy versions!"

I may wait on reviews for the Zyusouken as the Artisan Dino Buckler did not have many sound effects and did not even bother having any show theme songs.

The Artisan Dragon Buckler I will wait to see if that show accurate buckle is a thing.

To be honest Bandai's legacy line has been a bitter-sweet ride. A lot of the products I was excited for always ended up having issues that really annoyed me.

Dragon Dagger: all the weight was in the blade when it should have been in the handle, the soundboard was newly made and did not feature the sounds from the show

Saba: very loose in the middle where the handle meets the blade, tiger coin was terribly painted

Dragonzord: legs didn't lock right, tail couldn't come apart to look show accurate, hole in the back of the neck visible from the front, destroys the paint on legacy megazords head when trying to combine them

Lol, I love my Legacy Dragon Dagger, this BOJ version is just a bonus. Will display them both in all of their glory.

I'm really surprised to see these, considering how the response to the Artisan Dino Buckler was in Japan. But, of course, pleasantly surprised. The Dragon Buckler was one of my first big-ish Super Sentai purchases, and the one I still find myself regretting parting with while planning my wedding.

The Legacy/Artisan items are almost certainly my favorite collectibles released in the last decade or so. It's like the made the exact things my 10 year old self would have wanted.

It'll be really nice to have the High Proportion series displayed with the full-sized versions, too.

So, let me guess, they'll come out right around the same time as the SoC Daizyujin?

Speaking of Daizyujin can we get a x-plus re-release that's easier to get for us NA fans?

I believe there is a Legacy Dragonzord re-issue coming next year. Maybe they will fix the legs or something.

A bit late on the comment for this item but do you guys think that the Artisan Aura Changer will have more sounds of sorts or be more dynamic than the original DX toys?

Considering the mechanism in which the original toy works it does not have the traditional buttons that can facilitate these extra sound bytes. I do hope that they do add some background music for the Henshin.

The first post in the thread has the Middle-Man services. There's possibly more, some may not even get them. It pays to watch them all. And there's usually a heads up here too of when they go live.

RangerBango and anyone else, for future reference, please don't "bump". Either with the word or something that's borderlining. I'm not going to dish out infractions... but I will make this the first and only warning on that.

We have people here that are fully aware of the thread and when there's news, it will be posted. There's no need to revive a thread just to appear on the first page.

So yeah,there were some videos showcasing the new Artisan Aura and Kiba Changers but they are restricted for my region. Like the uploader themself made it unavailable for anyone else to watch these videos.

On the listings page for them? Don't worry, you're not missing anything. It's nothing to do with the toys, it's just episode 17 of Dairanger, region-locked to Japan.

I see. What a tease.
I was hoping for confirmations on whatever new additions that the Artisan release will have over the original DX release.
