Got this a while ago now, but what an amazing find, in a local hobby store, a fully customised and finished ‘Muteki’ shogun megazord. Decals and all. Possibly a ‘remorphed’ Zord. Would like to upgrade to Chrome chest and sword at some point.

Picked him up for £20 😊 Bargain.

Great job, Voyager! Looks very impressive next to the Legacy NinjaFalcon Megazord.

That's a rare and lucky find. Is it permanently combined?

Nope, fully tranformable as normal 😊

Working on some concepts. It's just an odd impractical weapon. For something so bulky it should be like a boxing glove that also covers the forearm. It's like swinging a bucket.

Rant
Honestly the DC Red hands remind me the Legacy girls hands. It's way too small. They've given it way too more uniqueness that I don't even think it holds it's own gear well. Shadow Ranger has the best hands. I'd love if Hasbro just made it the standard for Right/Left. I don't think we need 4 different unique hands per box. Just two general standard ones and two unique ones.

Question for the pros.

During an interview with TokuNation, Gregory Mitchell mentions the Legacy Gold Ranger used "unpaintable" plastic. That's not an exaggeration.

I bring this up, because many Bandai weapons used a simmilar soft plastic. I'm curious how well, and how poorly, different series' weapons hold paint. Also, literacy. What polymers are used for these soft plastic weapons?

I'd like to paint the 5" action hero Alien Ranger weapons, but I'm worried they use the same plastic. Mitchell mentions Armored Might as another instance, and the AM accessories look a lot like Aurico's gold.

Polyoxymethylene (POM) and Polyamide (PA). Chemical resistant materials which inhibits paint. For customization, prime any plastic first.

Does anyone here have a replacement SHF Deka Red crotch piece, or suggestions on how to fix the inside if one of the leg pegs broke at the clip on the inside?

Thanks! That helps a lot!

Just to clarify (for the kids at home), I'm not talking about the prints. But, two birds one stone! Those FUD prints do need to be cleaned to remove some support wax and the lubricant. I'll follow up in your 3D print thread.

My typing defaulted to something else, didn't mean to say print.
For any painting project, especially with plastics. Prime them first. Adds more time but it's a nicer surface to work with.

Repainted Psycho Blue and his axe, looking a lot more screen accurate imo.

Was never to keen on his original blue.

I think with the Psychos is their colors are metallic like car paint. While Bandai went more matte.

He looks much better. The shade of blue BoA used was too light. All of them should have a metallic hue.

I've been thinking a lot about the Psycho hues lately. I think Bandai used that light blue to contrast Space Ranger Blue, which is darker. The blue on Prince Vekar is the perfect shade. It would've been the perfect time for Bandai's metallic shenanigans, but alas.

I felt inspired, and started this. I'm thinking about using the Armoured Might accessory for a Snow Staff. The NS gloves match the Magi gloves, but that's a minor issue.

I know Hasbro will probably release him, but I wanted to customize something. I still have to sand and paint.

I wish I knew what action figure bodies were closest to this. i know we got some for the figuarts but now we need some for these guys, because I'd like to do some customs too lol ...because lets face it, not every ranger will be released.
