Well, after missing out on the first release, I preordered a Legacy MMPR Green Ranger back in August/September at GameStop and it just came in. Unfortunately they only had one left, mine, and it had a noticable paint scuff (or brush stroke) right on the center of the shield. The QC team at the factory strikes again.

Iím a little bummed since I was looking forward to this, but at least I live and work in areas with multiple store locations. I can go on a little journey Saturday and see if I can find another.

Have they re-released the Blue, Pink and Black rangers with belt fixes?

Lol bandai gives no f*cks about fixing any mistakes they made.

The re releases were just a quick cash grab before the contract is up and nothing more.

So again was the rerelease actually a new production run then. There is no reason the belts would remain the same. Of course it could be they kept the same settings and refused to change them.

Well the packaging has updated dates on the back, so tnhey have to be a re issue, which makes not fixing the belts even worse. It was certainly a missed opportunity considering this was a cash grab. A lot more people would have rushed out to get them knowing the issue was resolved with this run.

Making those corrections probably would have incurred a minor cost from the factory, either in terms of money or time.

Not to mention it would've pissed off people that already bought the wrong ones.

There was no way for Bandai to win the minute the wrong ones hit shelves.

To be fair they pretty much already did that by making you buy the metallic versions just to get the weapons and white belts.

Is Bandai even worried about pissing off the customers at this point? It's not like they have to worry about keeping out business.

Found a complete set of Metallic + Green + White @ EBgames/Gamestop!!!! This set should complete me. Any future releases, maybe I'll pick up a favorite ranger or two but for a complete team, this fulfills me.

... Can they do that? I wouldn't be shocked Hasbro stepped in and told Bandai to go fuck themselves.

Maybe Japanese releases (SH Figuarts or something)? This is the first I'm hearing of more Gamestop Power Rangers exclusives.

Theyíre officially listed as statues in GameStop computer. Their descriptions can be wonky sometimes. No manufacturer info listed or visuals available yet however given the revealed release date Iím now thinking itís not Bandai. Whatever they are, theyíre exclusive to GameStop. Iíll update as more info becomes available.

I must admit, it feels a bit sad to me seeing the Legacy toy thread "demoted" from the stickies section
