Yes, most of the PR PSH have been on Amazon for awhile.
But the only products I have seen in brick and mortar till a few days ago were the Mega Mighties figures.
And I did not want to get them off Amazon because the msrp is a few bucks lower than Amazon's price. So I am hoping that they will be cheaper once they hit Walmart and Target. Or maybe Amazon will drop its prices.

Yes, though, people have been finding them in stores for a couple of months too. Just most stores didnít put them out until they reset.

YMMV. But, as I said, PSH toys have been in stores for MONTHS.

Ok Nvm. Just assumed everyone was in the same boat concerning the PSH.
No ones posted saying they have found them. No Posted pics. Much less reviews.

Oddly enough, the first sighting and post was from DT Blue actor Kevin Duhaney, who found his own figure.

Itís finicky that way. Thatís just how itís set up. If you go to Display Options, you can change it. Itís automatically set up for Last Month, but if you change it, youíll get more pages or a longer list depending on whether youíre on mobile or desktop.

Now all we need is to hire the ghosts of Burt Reynolds and Jerry Reed to smuggle them across the Mississippi.

Geez.
Considering the fact that these Zords are useless without either Triple Changers,that is oversight on Hasbro's part.
Ah, welcome to Hasbro's handling of...anything.

They're known to do this, more so as of late.

They map out the year and plan on getting this item or that item out at a specific time, but Walmart has first dibs (embargo, there's several writeups on it over at TFW2005.) and they tend to put the items out early (giving them a head start) and then other retailers follow suit and before you know it, all of the stuff that was supposed to come out when it was is now sold out and there's nothing available on the street date.

This is part of the reason why Target will refuse sales of an item if it's part of their upcoming seasonal reset. (Which just occurred, so there should be no restrictions for the better part of the next three months.) If Hasbro places a street date on the packaging, none of them can actually sell said item. (PR does not have a Hasbro street date, currently.)

Case in point: Siege Galaxy Force Optimus was supposed to be released July 1st, I got him in April at Walmart. Thundercracker was supposed to be August 1st, Entertainment Earth got him in a case with Megatron back in July, and Springer was supposed to cased with Thundercracker, but they bumped it and put Starscream in his place. They do this to pad the waves and stretch everything out so they can make it to the end of the year. If stores like Target and Walmart keep selling as they have been, Hasbro will run out of stuff to sell long before the end of the year and going an entire quarter or more like that is terrible business.

That's why this is happening, but it's backfiring. It also doesn't help that the line has a small amount of mecha rather than a full series line like Transformers or Star Wars would. I give Hasbro credit, though, they seem to be rolling with the punches for the most part.

Do you happen to have a receipt or the Meijer number? Because all of the Meijers I've been to don't even have a UPC/code for it, let alone spots on the shelves for them. Though, to be fair, I have smaller locations near me, not the larger ones that make you feel like you're walking through an airplane hangar.

I got my Gold/Silver/Evox/Drilltron shipment from Walmart. The outward movement on the hips on Gold is some of the loosest articulation I've ever seen on a figure straight out of the package. Silver's not great either. Drilltron has some fairly loose arms.

The number on the receipt is 63050980538. Which looks to be the same as the UPC on the box just without the trailing digit (which is 9).

Found a big stand of PRBM stuff in my local Mr Toys, here in Australia. It was kind of heartening because that's the first time I've seen an actual toy store (not a gimmick shop or a pop-culture, but an actual big toy department store) make a huge deal out of PR merch in about a decade.

Those little Fisher-Price-esque figures were interesting. How come Danny the Black Wild Force Ranger comes with the Jungle Fury Rhino-steel zord? Anyway.

The zords were all there. Red and Gold were fifty bucks each, the other three were forty --- so to complete the fleet, that's $220, all up. I'm pretty sure I spent less on the original GoBusters mecha, so, I'm good with that.

But they had the full first range of the figures, which was fantastic, because chances are they'll get the next wave ... which is Roxy and Gold and Silver and Evox, and they're the ones I want.

Apparently, it transforms from the JF one to the WF one.

I'll tell you why - smart people have control of the brand.

They share thematics, and they're both Power Rangers. Instead of revisiting every series like it's insular, Hasbro has already rethought what this series is about.

This pack sold their approach for me, and conveys a lot about how Hasbro views PR. They could've just bundled dino teams, they could've just paired Rangers by series. Instead, we get Ninjor Battle Mode and Dino Charge Green. What? No, seriously, what?

This pack says something about character and thematics. Riley is a fencer, he's usually depicted with a sword. Ninjor Battle Mode fights exclusively with a sword, and comes from a ninja themed Sentai. It's a smart pairing that isn't by-the-books. Hasbro rethought what it meant to sell Rangers.

People arguing for the old approach...I'm sorry, y'all are wrong. The team approach is tired. This is so much smarter. This is how you expand a brand, market characters, and grow beyond insular stories.

Could you imagine Hasbro doing Ninja Steel and... Ninjor is just the Mentor or has a major presence because it MAKES GOD DAMN SENSE UNLIKE A GOD PRISM?
