Given how many other random characters were shown, they probably didn't have time to make the whole team. Plus these are prototypes and not the real things.
I really don't get why they came up with the two jetman figuarts, the two gekiranger figuarts, and akaranger. I'd have much rather seen the prototypes for the rest of goseiger since gosei knight is about to come out and we haven't heard anything about the rest of the team, nor anything about a possible gokai silver gold mode (as well as gokai silver's darin).

Well I doubt they'll make individual body types for specific characters like that. I can kinda seem them doing that, but I'm sure it'd be more cost effective to just re-color the body and sculpt a new head.

If they did they'd have to make a short Kiba Ranger, same with a smaller King Ranger. Being that Kou was like 10 years old and Rikki was "16 years old".
I'm hoping if they make the Kiba Ranger and the King Ranger, they have both a tall version to match the rest of the team, but also have a small one too.

Kou grew to normal size when he transformed (so he wouldn't be laughed at), he wasn't any smaller than the rest of them.

Goseiger was an incredibly unpopular season, we're probably getting Gosei Knight as an exclusive, because he was about the only thing people did like about the show. If they were releasing all of the Goseiger's, he'd be a standard release like ShinkenGold and GokaiSilver. I'm sure they'll get to them eventually, but Jetman, Dekaranger, Boukenger.. and well, practically every other season is higher up on the priority list.

Gekiranger wasn't particularly popular either, but Rio and Mele were, which is probably why we're only getting those two. Gold mode and the Gobuster figures will probably be released as more of a "surprise" like what happened with GokaiRed. Just because there are no prototypes doesn't mean they aren't being made, and the ones we have seen prototypes for might not be released for years.

Though, with the older series' coming out, it does bring it to question on if they'll make bikes for the super sentai teams or not.

Whole sets of Rangers is already a lot, adding the bikes would be too much to ask for. Pity too, the Gorangers would benefit from that.

I finally got my first Figuarts, Shinken Red. I'm a bit worried about the hands. They are a hard to change, I'm worried I might break the joint. I saw earlier in the thread about using oil.

Would someone mind posting an amazon link to a specific oil to use?
I honestly thought I was the only one, I'm the same way with my shinken Pink and yellow I hate changing the hands because it's so hard. It feels like I'm about to break it. I even don't get how to pose them I see all these amazing pictures posted on ranger board and FB but I always fail at posing them. So I've given up and just kept them MIB.

I suggest investing in Tamashii stages.

If you don't want to then when you're posing them keep their feet anchored to whatever surface you're on. You can move them in whatever position you want, but if you're not accounting for the feet it's just going to fall over.

I took that trick that people suggested for the hips and took a pencil and coloured in the ball of the hand. They *seem* to slip on easier now, and it's invisible once the hands are on.

That's not true, for the first few episodes when he appeared as Kiba Ranger he was "normal size". After they found out Kou was Kiba Ranger he was still smaller than the other Dairangers after he changed.

I wonder how long it will take them to announce a Gavan figure? I would camp out at amiami for that.

I'm just glad they are focusing on showa and fourze for the moment, nothing from their that I want. My wallet is thankful too...

This is the closest you'll get to one. It's in-scale with Figuarts.

I honestly never even noticed the change while watching the show. I'd guess they would still just make him normal sized though, rather than making an entirely new mould just for him. They can just say it's Kibaranger prior to his identity being revealed.

Though I almost hope they go with the smaller one, just to annoy the MMPR fanboys
