And I'm saying, Until Amazon sells out of however many they eventually receive, people should relax. This is why people get away with scalping because people panic.

Unless you get lucky at a Walgreens, I think those figures are long gone. I just saw the males today at a Walmart, but it was the revision case with only Red, Black, and Blue.

If you have a Shopko, try there. I've seen some on their pegs as late as a week and a half ago.

How ironic that to 'fix' the problem of surplus females being left on the shelf, Bandai have created another in their dwindling scarcity (or uncertain status like DT yellow, and delayed, 1-retailer-exclusive-with-quantities-based-only-on-orders like Zeo). For my sake in England, I certainly hope some scalpers are pre-ordering the zeo girls because I can't imagine we'll be able to get them any other way if these are the hoops you guys are having to jump through, and you're the main market.

I saw some new Legacy stuff today, finally. The only place on my island that carrier anything is Walmart. They had 4 different 2 packs of rangers and villains today. I really wanted the Lunar Wolf Ranger and Madame Odious but it was like $22 and I just couldn't justify it right now. It was nice to see a Red Mystic Ranger as well.

No Shopko around me, I'm from NC.
Checked 6 Walgreens, only White & regular Yellow.
I got other 3 males at Gamestop today, around is all the same, just male "revision" as you said.

Thanks you all.

I saw Red and Yellow at Target on Monday, so they're still out there. It was the first time I'd seen the metallics at Target in months.

I was on the hunt for a game and checked out a few Gamestops, they seem to be getting the Metallic MMPRs now, though I think it might just be the male-only cases, not sure though. I did find more of the girls at a couple nearby Walgreens though, and a whole lot of Dino Thunder Reds and Zeo Velveeta.

I went to my toys r us yesterday after a long time, Iím surprised they still had like 3 or 4 legacy mmpr pink and space yellow. There werenít there before so did they get another case? Also I was shocked to see 1 mmpr yellow because she was hard to find along with space black and blue.

I also got an update from cmd store Iím glad itís not a scam. I just think itís really weird their live chat is offline most of the time now and they donít have a contact number.

I get what you and others are saying. I do feel confident that online stores will get stock, and that TRU stock will go somewhere. There's no doubt of that.

The variables in this are, how much stock and availability. The truth is, we DON'T have a clue how many Bandai produced. Did they produce a whole batch before the Saban/Bandai crumble, or did they perhaps halt production? We don't know. We also don't know how the TRU debacle is going to change things up. Where is stock going to go? We don't know. We've never been in this situation before.

And to add to that... TRU in the UK has announced that they will close ALL stores in the next 6 weeks.

Should you pay scalper prices? Absolutely not, unless it's the end all of things. But I will say that if you find a deal that's a few dollars higher AND you're willing to pay that, then get it because it might be best to err to the side of caution on this. If you want to wait, then go for it... no one is forcing people to buy them at higher prices.

And if people are panicking... well, that's their fault. There's nothing wrong with being proactive and prepared. Like I said, I want the Zeonizer, so getting for a few dollars more isn't the end of the world for me. The staff... I'm not that broken about it. If I can get one for normal price then I will, if not, no biggie.

The other thing is. What if there isn't a ton of stock? Then stores get them in, demand is high, supply is short, and now all of those people "waiting" get screwed and have to pay scalper prices when they could have paid $20 more to get something a couple of months ago.

And of course there's the vice-versa of that too... maybe there's more than enough stock. We just don't know the variables here.

I'm of the mindset that, yes, you should wait to see and not pay scalper prices BUT you also shouldn't pass up stock coming in... or paying a few... and I mean a few dollars more if you really want it.

And I've bought all my Legacy items, sans the Dagger at my TRU. Now with them potentially closing my one source I'll have to resort to online... and that pretty much goes for everyone in the world that wants them. So while stock can be plentiful... the adverse of that is, you now have a greater clientele buying online which depletes supply far more quickly that before.

There's no guarantee that even if there is a ton of stock that you'll get either one.

So the gist? Don't panic, but be mindful of the situation as well.

I'm in New York and I've never come across the Metallic MMPR figures in-person. I was lucky enough to get them from someone through the Power Rangers Traders, Buyers, and Sellers Facebook page for only $25 each. I've still never seen any of the Dino Thunder or Zeo figures, and believe me, I've been looking. Target, Walmart, ToysRUs, and about a dozen Walgreens that were way out of my way. I enjoy a good toy hunt, but this is getting deflating. I've been lucky enough to pre-order the main five Zeo Rangers though Gamestop and Amazon, but Gold is still elusive. I bought some gold paint to fix him up over two months ago

I totally agree with the no-panicking mode on the Zeo items, but I do
wonder if production on these two items was smaller to begin withÖ
with them being a "test" of non-MMPR weapons / changers at a high price-point.

They never numbered the Gold Zeo Communicator at SDCC, but those ended up being
pretty damn rare, I would guess there were only 500 or so of those, if that.

Gold Zeo Communicator was a convention exclusive. There's no correlation to its production run with these items. Yes, there were probably less made of the Zeonizer and Golden Power Staff, but not so much less as to come anywhere near that number. If they knew what was going on upfront with TRU and it was such an issue, they would've outright cancelled them. Why bother only producing a couple of hundred of each?

Correct, I know it was a SDCC exclusiveÖ my point is that Bandai
seemed to be "unsure" about stepping outside MMPR for Legacy role-play
and zords, and it would not surprise me if these Zeo releases were produced
in lesser numbers for just being non-MMPR.

The Gold Communicator was just the next logical thing they could
"Black and Gold-ize" for SDCC.
