^ This is true, but in some cases the figure would stand out so much,
take for instance, SL Lord Zedd, he fits PERFECTLY with Goldar and a possy of putties. But SL green doesnt go well with any of the old MMRP figures.


Which is why, with luck, they'll release a new mold MMPR ranger in each years SL waves.

We just need five more figures, and like I said the next one (If it happens) will no doubt be red. MAYBE black.

Right so, Entertainment Earth is listing the Lightspeeed Rescue Titanium Ranger as the newest Super Legends classic release.

No pictures yet, but according to their list it's the only one (With any certainty of being a classic ranger).

Ummm,



JDF'd gave us this pic a while back in the RPM toy thread.

There's also the new extreme Super Legends (Green, RPM Red and Black) and more additions to the retrofire megazord line.

the original dino rangers with the Dino Thunder rangers in one uber pack

that way we have a team to go with green and white SL, and we have a revamped DT team

I've got no problem with a thread specifically for Super Legends but does it have a purpose besides, "I WANT THIS FIGURE! I WANT THAT FIGURE?" Because if it doesn't then it's really not necessary.

The point of it was to discuss the super legends sub-line, sadly the "I want this. I want that." posts come with it.


I mean it's to be expected in a thread dealing with a line that's predominantly new molds of old favorites.

I have something other than an "I want" to add!

Bandai told me in an e-mail that there are no plans for any female Super Legend figures.

Not that I expected them to have any but I thought I may as well ask them since I had nothing else to do.

so the Super Legends line has been expanding since it's creation. a video game, clothes, 5in zords, rangers, and extreme rangers. i see only two other ways to make this line larger. but i wonder if bandai would ever do super legends morphers or zords.

and it's just like Bandai to forget the girls. damn it.

Huh! They should absolutely make a MMPR Pink.
Dino Thunder's Kira and Ninja Storm's Tori would be sweet too, but oh well.

I'm not too keen on the new hip joints. Mainly because I haven't bothered buying an RPM figure yet to see how the articulation holds up but the Super Legends figures we've already gotten have a great joint system in place.

I can see why they changed it, fewer pieces means lower cost.


Can anyone tell us how the hip joints hold up on this design?

i know right?

then an Alien Ranger/Ninja storm one, as they both have a ninja motif

that would work, any two teams with roughly the same basis/motif could be released in one figure pack, just, w/o the "extra features" the bandai loves so much.

I love how the next three posts after this one was more "I want". Way to be classy, guys.

It comes back to cost.


Remember folks the Super LEgends subline is still a Budget line. The less work they have to do for a figure the more likely it is to happen. Which is why the male MMPR rangers would be easier.

A new helmet, gloves boots and belt.

Minor tooling all around.


While getting a few all new ones a year is do-able five to ten new sculpts for the subline would be pricey.


I mean look at it.

New male sculpt four new helmets.

New Female Sculpt plus another helmet.

Now for two sets of figures the number is doubled.

Then of course there's paint apps. the design process, etc.


It's too expensive for two team box sets.



We might be lucky enough to get the Super Legends that have already been released in a box set, But it's unlikely we'd ever get a box set of completely new figures.
