i would have rather they used this opportunity to get a more obscure character made like ninjor, scorpina, or bulk and skull (although i am a little concerned on how civilian figures will translate as an action hero body sculpt).

maybe next morphicon...
I doubt if they'd make a con exclusive figure that requires much, if any, new tooling. Drakkon can be done with probably 80-90% reused parts. Psycho Silver, if it happens, is 100% reused from the male Psycho Ranger body being developed for Red/Blue/Black.

true.

and lets give them some credit, they could have just given us red ranger with green ranger shield and called it an exclusive lol.

Morphicon already stated the figure is of a brand new sculpt. They just haven't revealed anything else.

I would guess, much like last year they will announce the NYCC exclusives
around a week before the show.

I have had zero luck finding the metallic legacy figures at any Walgreens. Considering these are showing up at Walgreens now compared to Target/Walmart like previous waves, where am I going to have hunt for the Zeo and Dino Thunder Waves? Gas stations?!

My Walgreens has the metallics. If anyone needs help getting them you're more than welcome to PM me.

EDIT: Please note I hit a snag, and found out that my PayPal and bank account are no longer connected. Thanks PayPal for telling me! I'm in the process of getting that hooked up again, should only take a couple of days. Once that's all back in order, I'm totally willing to continue helping people grab these. Please feel free to PM me if you still need help and I'll see what I can do.

And I just bought the last one. Thanks. Also the red movie morpher is on sale at tru.com for $25. I bought two more to make the yellow and black morphers.

I'd stand a better chance of finding them at 7-Eleven than I would at any other store. Don't get my hopes up and then just dash them!

Eh... the case adds a bit to that price. I mean, LED's, felt, the actual box and the name plates... I could see the coins going for $75 on their own. It looks like the coins actually have a ring of diecast molded in them. Could just be the pieces that come together to create the full coin, but each coin feels heavier than just plastic.



Had to wait to get home! Lol! So the colors for Kylash's are far better. The dinos in these are just upscale versions of the toy morpher.

First off the coin sizes. From L to R: Legacy Movie, Kylash Prop, Movie Toy, Zyuranger Medal (based on Legacy), and original.

So they changed the words under the coins. Wasn't it supposed to say the Dino names.

Not sure if anybody mentioned this but the Legacy Communicators have been quietly updated with black bottoms like the SDCC gold communicator. Guess they got a lot of complaints about the chrome wearing off.



I don't understand why they didn't make it metal. The circuit board doesn't seem to be touching in areas that could cause shorting? Maybe where the tactile switch is is but it could be preventable with minor tweaks. Oh well I guess?

Oh circuitboard is blue now instead of green but the sounds are still the same and Alphas clip still cuts off weird.




Stamp for this version is 97132116

I didn't know they were even still making legacy communicators since they came out years ago. Nice they keep trying to improve on them though.
