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.
I got an email saying they were processing orders and they needed me to update info. Had to do it over the phone since it's a guest order and the guy said it's shipping.

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 🤮

In which case you'd probably cut off the morpher and put it on LC Green.

Gokaiger series sofubi? I recently picked up the Dekabreak from that line, and it scales perfectly.

Ding! Ding! Ding! 👏

U are correct sir! 👍

And haven't done the belt yet, but that is phase 2 😁

I'm Also going to use the vinyl red ranger helmet on the LC when it comes out or on the SDCC Jason set Armored red.

That is a good looking red helmet, can't wait to see that.

Oh, nice! How tall are the vinyl figures that they can scale so well? Also 6"?

Could the green ranger hold the dagger and SOD at the same time?

It's amazing how in 26 years not a single American MMPR Red helmet sculpt has come close to a cheapo Bandai Japan vinyl.

You'd have to get another rangers hand. I really don't understand why Hasbro just wont put in two hands capable of holding things. I see it with all their figures. It's like the mandate is right handed only!

America cant get the red ranger toy right. America also cant get the green ranger suit right in the show.

Thatís really a bummer. Even bandai came through on that.

For all these negatives (small morpher, cheap gold, bad neck, Qc issues, unable to hold both weapons).

Im starting to think the human head isnt worth the tradeoff. From what Ive seen, overall legacy seems to have the better figure. Bandai even has the better weapon.

I haven't stated this opinion yet since I've felt like I would be in the vast minority, but I find almost no value in the human heads. I do appreciate the effort, but I will never display them un-helmeted. And for as much money and time that is spent on Hasbro's part (technology, actor likeness rights), I can't help but think of what kind of extra paint apps, sculpt and weapons quality, etc. we could be getting instead.

I don't think removing the heads is going fix these QC issues. The problem with some of the heads is a result of trying to make models off like LQ pictures from the 90's. In contrast the newer actors they have HQ pics of if not getting head scans. The heads are not holding them back. If they nixed them, you'd have the exact same product but without a human head.
Sculpt wise, folks go look at their marvel legends line. These same issues pop up over there. This is Hasbro in general and not specifically this line.

Now weapons wise. Once we get past MMPR, there isn't much to compare to with Legacy. I'd say Hasbro got MMPR's power sword better. Black and Pink seem to be about equal.


I personally like the heads. I do think they should maybe try to be less accurate and had some humanity back to it. I'd rather have a Boom comics Jason esque face then trying to be 100% accurate to the actor.
Though going forward with new teams I could see them bring in the actors for a 3D head scan session.

I don't just mean QC issues. The heads definitely contribute to the $19.99 price point. Considering how much time and effort and money go into producing those, we could be getting more paint apps and hands and weapons instead, which are more important to me than human heads.

Bandai also called this a weapon...

And I'm not referring to the boulders stuck to her chest.

One thing I really like about Bandai's figures is the separation between glove/gauntlet and elbow. The elbows on Lightning Pink are awful, it takes something away from the Ranger suit aesthetic.

I understand that choice on $10 figures, but it looks tacky when you bump up the price.

Every bit of plastic does contribute. Though I think you are overestimating the the heads to the grand scheme of Hasbro's line of products like this.

Weapons wise, we haven't missed much. I think DC Red is the only figure that's missing a signature weapon. Nixing the head on Shadow Ranger isn't going to option in the red and gold paint apps that are missing. I just don't think the inclusion of heads are the reason we don't get two open hands.

I think you're underestimating the cost of the heads. Actor likeness rights are incredibly expensive, as would be the 3D scanning technology used by toy companies. It's an entire department that gets paid. That on top of the actual production of the head, the 3D face printing technology, and the paint apps for the head... all of these things would absolutely take away from other paint apps and accessories.

Dino Charge Red also had a lot of weapons, not just one signature piece.

I'd say the same for Legacy's ball joint wrist, which did get loose and broke off on one of mines.
