The foot soldier figure we deserve, but will never get. *squints at the tire fire that was super megaforce*

I don't really want to see foot soldiers until we get a main villain and at least one ranger from the series they're from.
Did that THING actually appear in Sentai or is it fan made?

The Ghost Ship movie, which is why it's easy to miss. 13 min in.


Also agreeing for Putties being the best intro piece for soldier fodder. If they won't be creative in customizing, fandom certainly will be.

Ooh, you know how Hasbro will make those boxed sets of, like, Clone Troopers or Stormtroopers throughout the eras? Do something like that with 4 or 5 different versions of the Putties. Make the box look like the Monster-Matic.

Wow. I forgot how short it was. They really made that complex suit for less than 2 minutes of air time. Lol Still a thing of beauty.

That whole film was a fever dream. Gokaiger was hitting full stride, riding the high of 199 and Silver's intro, then suddenly it gets a Casper knock-off film?

It's the generic yearly movie. Basically a TV show episode with better budget to promote the toyline and sell more toys.

There was very few which were really good. My favorites were Gekiranger's and LuPat's though Hurri, Deka, Magi, Bouken, Go-on and Gosei had fun movies as well.

I definitely want some foot soldiers! At least one from every season. Hopefully most of them will be done. Ideally it would be great to have one wave consist two rangers, one villain and one foot soldier. But that will never happen(
Can’t wait for the Comic con though... hopefully we will see some awesome announcements

They could at least do the different hands (sword, ball) as option parts on a single figure, right?

That is what I'm hoping for. Not a whole heap of accessories, but since the Putties don't need a head swap nor have a standard weapon, putting in the blade hand and/or ball hand or similar seems like the way to go.

Is anyone going to the Hasbro Pulse Members' only party at SDCC? They mention it having a first look at new products. Seems like this might be where we learn more about the lightning line. I'm hoping they'll do something similar in October for NYCC?

Boog_ACBA on youtube is and he posted a video where you can comment questions for him to ask there. I've seen a few Lightning Collection related onces already.

i was sad to have to re-buy figures from the legacy collection, but the lightening figures have been much better so it is worth it. for con reveals i am nervous they will branch out from figures and start releasing other stuff we already have like power morphers or gold power staff... i am not sure i want to -want to buy those items again.

Putty accessory discussion
Honestly, while there are plenty of things they could include with a Putty figure, the only things I'd really want would be a ball hand, a sword hand, and a pumpkin head. I feel like those are the only real "must have" accessories for a Putty Patroller.

Well, if they turn out better than what you have, sell your old stuff. If they're worse, no worries or need to buy (though that last point goes either way lol).

I really need to see Pink Ranger to see how they plan on doing the women

I would be okay with a new morpher if it was (or lead to) the Master Morpher

If they do morphers aimed at adult collectors, I hope they don’t repeat Bandai by releasing the same morpher time and again with cosmetic changes. I’d rather pay extra to get a morpher with the original 6 power coins, the “standard” plates, and the gold Green/White ranger faceplates and just have the option to swap everything around. I’d even be open to separate add-on packs like a master morpher pack or movie/season 2 upgrade pack.

It’s the same line of thinking as the custom lightsabers Disney has at Galaxy’s Edge. Sell the main thing, then have us come back for other bits and pieces.

What Larry said, do this with Master Morphers.

Custom Morphers have been popular for ages, and their parts are readily changeable. Different backplates, different coins, different shells, different stickers.

Custom Power Coins are just as popular, and recent media has opened the door to countless coin powers and styles. Hasbro could take the idea of Power Coins further than Ranger Keys, they could even build on the pin trading culture at parks.

It's terrifying.

If Toei were to do a Sentai with a Toei gimmick, Hasbro would go crazy with its adaptation.

I think Armored rangers that can turn into cars would be something

We’ve had figure like that before but a series? That would something
