I think that's probably what Bandai gave them as projection. It may totally be subject to change. I remember the Zeo girls were at a later date and then shifted to an earlier time.

Should note that Walmart already ran out of the psycho ranger inventory.

Wouldn't it be cool if Hasbro made power ranger transformers? You know power rangers that turn into zords.

Just finished getting the Power Rangers In Space Legacy Figures. Just wondering why were people on Ebay charging more for the Blue Figure. Was it harder to get than the others. Also Who would have liked to have seen a second set of Space Ranger figures in the Grey Uniforms?

Even if they could, no. The Star Wars and Marvel ones were bad.

I believe we call that a "Projected Date".

Bandai tried that. I remember because it was the only way to get any representation of the Brachiozord during Dino Thunder without importing.

Yeah they were!

That's why when people say things like "The Hasbro Zords will be great because they've been doing Transformers for forever," I'm like, "Wait and see." No one from the Transformers development team was involved with the Marvel and Star Wars Transformers. Those were handled by the Marvel and Star Wars teams, who'd never done transforming robot figures before. See also: the early waves of Marvel Universe 3.75" figures, which were trash, even though the GI Joe and Star Wars figures in that scale were at the top of their game at the same time (because no one from the GI Joe or Star Wars teams lent a hand to the Marvel team, who hadn't worked in that scale before).

Just got my White Dinothunder Ranger. I think I'm glad that Bandai never finished Ninjastorm because I would have hated to seem them screw up Green like they did this figure.
I straight up then they gave up part way through making this.
It's missing not many paint apps that I'm going to have to spend a bit of time applying. They didn't finish the shield much less paint it.
So the lower leg rotation is back which is strange it was removed for the Zeo and DInothunder figures. I think the limbs are weirdly loose. I say that because they hold their position but I don't feel confident that it will hold it for long.
Really what's getting me are the paint apps. it's like they went "No one is ever going to turn this figure around".

I want to rant more but I know it's pointless and end of the line.

You are right, it's tricky to tell because it is slightly raised but nowhere near the front. Still so annoying they left it bare. Yeah this guys is going to take a bit of work to add on the gold, black, and white.

Sidenote, I assume getting the sculpts isn't that difficult anymore like in the 90's. But paint apps still are a portion of manufacturing that's still unique to each figure.

Eh... it was par for the course at this point. None of the legacy figures have gone without some sort of problem... it is what it is. Bandai is done, and we can hopefully look forward to better quality and appearance beyond prototype stage from here on out.

Personally, I think the figure looks ok for what it is... I never collected dino thunder and later on really liked that season... so granted we get yellow, I'm satisfied with this collection.

I got a confirmation email from BBTS that the Legacy Auto Morphin Wave 2 set has shipped. I will have an extra Tommy, but I didn't want to risk not getting the figures as the Power Ranger toy sections in the Walmarts and Targets in my area have been diminishing.

That honestly would have made more sense than all of the Green Rangers that were produced over the course of the Spring and Fall assortments.

The sculpt lines are there, the back of his shield isnít supposed to be raised like the front.

Itís kinda weird to explain. Bandai is both right and wrong. The back stripes actually are lower than the front from where they meet in the middle and then trail down the back to nothing. Bandai messed up the part that was to be slightly raised, but the majority of the stripes is correct. And it depends on what images and show you watch.





You can see AbareKiller has the flat stripes and on Drago, theyíre raised a bit, (not as high as the front), and flatten as they go down.
