So, based off of a YouTube review, it looks like Kim's morpher is painted silver, along with the other details.


So who knows, maybe they really did use that one extra paint app and put it towards the silver stripe on Green's helmet. At the very least, I'm a little less worried that we're going to be getting white power morphers for the rest of the team.

You guys, I get it. Iíve seen Mystic Force and it is in my top five American Power Rangers. Itís my wifeís all-time favorite. I was trying, and as is often the case failing, to be funny.

That said, I will be legitimately surprised if Udonna or Koragg/Wolf Warrior arenít the first Mystic Force Characters we get. They started SPD with Shadow, so they know our favorites.

They're also easier to make, not requiring a cape. Magna's body is flexible for future armored characters but he has a semi stiff Cape, which works for him but not for Mystic Force.

No, I definitely agree, the eye is drawn elsewhere on Fighting Spirit Green, plus with him being a one off, it doesn't bother me nearly as much. I mean, I say that, but I don't even have him yet lol.

I just knew that on the rest of the team, and regular green, white morphers would definitely bug me. The Zyuranger suits are pretty plain, the way I see it there are three major areas that are kind of the center pieces. The helmet (obviously), the chest diamond, and the buckler. If any one of those looks off, it throws off the whole suit. I really hope we don't end up with any kind of Legacy type shenanigans in terms of inconsistent MMPR belts. Don't want to see any arbitrary white morphers on some, but silver on the others.

hey just an FYI and idk if this was just me being unlucky or not but the Lightning Goldar order I had at Gamestop's website got randomly cancelled this morning. I was able to reserve another one but idk what caused it. If anyone has theirs reserved online they may want to check their email just to be sure.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned this yet (that I've seen), but is anyone else bothered by the size of the belt morphers!? Here is an image from DosmRider's review of LC Fighting Spirit Green next to a Legacy Green.



They're tiny and have no depth to them at all. They really do just look like stickers. I have LC Green in hand, and there's just a whole host of problems from the bizarre lack of neck, the missing mouth plate paint, the yellow shield, the inaccurate helmet. I'm pretty disappointed. I hope Hasbro is reading this and fixes these issues before a standard LC Green Ranger is released.

I'm still worried they won't fix the inaccurate mold and paint of MMPR Red helmet before standard release.

Because they use stunt costume as refference, check out your figuarts, for a proper morpher size.

The issue is their size and flatness.

I donít know if this would/could fit into the Lightning Collection or would be itís own separate thing, but Iíd really dig a retro plug-n-play arcade stick that has all the old SNES/Sega/Gameboy games all in one spot. License issues are probably going to never allow that to happen since so many developers worked on all those, but it would be cool if they could make it happen. But then again, a bunch were two player games so idk how theyíd get around that issue.

I said figuarts is the best comparator, not legacy. That doesn't mean LC is a good designed belt.

I noticed the Morpher since the first time pictures showed up.

Really small to my liking. 😡

That's my phase two of Mike-A-Mizing my LC green ranger figure. 🤫

Phase 1 almost done 😁



I just don't really like the silver stripe 🤮

I'm also surprised nobody has mentioned how off the hue of green they used really is. I hope that's just for the special set because seeing it side by side with the Legacy Green (which IMO is a phenomenal Green Ranger figure and one of the highlights of the line) it really does look bad. Between that and all the other issues with this release, I think silver-stripe Tommy might be hands down the worst LC release to date.

I got an email from GameStop but it was to update my CC (which I did). I got excited for a minute and thought that they were getting ready to start shipping them out.

Hasbro will likely reference the American/NZ props and pics. Green ranger is is the same green as the core team green rangers. Don't expect an off turquoise tint. I'm thinking Bandai worked from Sentai props.

I don't think they will modify the belt. At best they will be like the Armored Red and Pink ranger. It perplexes me that it's so flat. Hasbro needs to really assess their reference material because I don't think they are picking the best(assuming they have access to it).

The FS Green ranger clearly has consistent errors with the coin and the sigils on the diamond. So it's in the mold or the paint stamp. It seems fine details are just problematic for Hasbro and the QC is very lax.

Red Ranger might get a new helmet. I think they chose not to apply the silver.

Lastly yeah, helmets wise they seem to flatten the sides of the MMPR team.
