I'm pretty disappointed with the recent Lightning Collection figures. The gold on Goldar, the Red Ranger/Gold Ranger 2-pack and the Green Ranger/Putty 2-pack reminds me a lot of that horrible Bandai Legacy cheesy gold plastic. It's also inconsistent with the fantastic White Ranger figure, which has great gold paint applications. I also feel the shade of grey on the putty is too light, should have been a darker grey.

Pretty sad as I really wanted to invest in that line. Hopefully, the gold on the final products won't appear as flat as on the latest pictures in real life.
I'll just say this. They can't physically paint the full figure gold. Metallic gold paint isn't cheap and it's a full coverage figure. So right out of the gate, expecting Goldar to be full painted gold was a dream.

That said. Hasbro does use a goldish plastic, which is cheaper, and is more in line with what Bandai Japan does with Sentai and Rider in terms of color and less like what Bandai America did to Gold Zeo. And sometimes it has a little flake/glitter in it to make it more "metallic" and also a little swirl effect in it. While maybe not ideal, it's the most cost effective. But I wouldn't worry about it appearing too cheesy.

In fact, the 2017 Target Exclusive Goldar is more in line with the gold Hasbro uses than the hideous Zeo Gold.

Photos too tend to blow colors out... so I'd definitely wait for in hands.

Gotta agree with that. On the BBTS website, white ranger's gold looks terrible, but it's spot-on on the figure. The instant I saw the green ranger figure this morning, I thought there is absolutely no way I'm getting that. I didn't like many things about it, including the gold on the shield, the shield itself being rounded, and it being the DT FS version with silver stripes. I'm not a fan of that. But seeing the photos of the actual figure rather than those lesser promotional shots changed my mind. Looks so much better in action, and I'm really liking that putty figure.

Not sure on Beast Morphers. I already have figuarts red and now the Hasbro action figure, but the LC figure looks nice (except for his human head) and gold ranger looks great, too. Since go-busters, I pretty much just wanted a gold ranger figure. But Pink and Magna are definite buys. I'm surprised the cape is looking as good as it does. Thought it might actually be cloth, looks great for plastic.

Zeo Pink or Turbo Pink?
That idea is inadequate for many reasons.

If they do ninjetti pink with kat head that means no ninjetti kim.

Hasbro just made it complicated that could have been simple. Two human heads for about 12 rangers wouldnt break their bank. When they have marvel legends who have an alt head, weapons, AND a baf piece.

Like some of the C-3PO figures that aren't a metallic gold and photos look a little off, but when you see them in person they actually look fantastic.

Can anyone point me in the direction of some figure stands for the lightning collection like what Hasbro uses at cons to display the rangers in certain poses.

They look to be like this: https://www.amazon.com/Obitsu-MLST-A...88438557&psc=1

However, you'd be fine with Stage ACT 4 or something along those lines.



Picked up Amazon preorders... not thrilled with having to get the online for now, but good placeholders if I have trouble finding them in store. Definitely need to look at the figures first... but also nice to have a back up plan lol.

With the reveal of the Fighting Spirit Green Ranger, I'm now fully expecting MMPR Rocky, Adam, Aisha, and Kat to show up in multi-packs down the line, whether they be general release like Green/Putty, store exclusive, or convention exclusive.

I'm less confident in something like the Turbo Rangers or Lost Galaxy Pink getting multiple releases.

Only thing about that is that hasbro reportedly stated that they will NOT release the same ranger twice to compensate for the extra head.

For Stone Canyon they MIGHT get a 95 movie release but Kat just could be shit out of luck.

Does hasbro even own the rights to the 95 film btw?

Instead of Hasbro re-releasing the same figures but with different heads, which they said they wont do I guess. How about a package of alternate heads? lol A 6 pack of alternate ranger civilian heads! Do that a few times and it would cover alot of rangers.

they are more likely to include an extra head in a two or 3 pack. they might even do a vehicle pack and throw in a head, though they usually try to have the head match the theme of the pack. i just hope the "working on a way to include the extra heads elsewhere" doesnt end up exactly like bandais "well get you the weapons somehow". i have way more faith in hasbro then bandai though.

Yeah so far Hasbro is doing a pretty good job, just need to get their quality control for paint apps fixed. I think if the demand is high enough, they will find a way to get the alternate civilian heads out. So far they are blowing BoA out of the water with their resent releases though. I mean, look at the White Ranger helmet, it is the correct size, color and looks exactly like the one in season 2. Beautifully done in my opinion.

The 1995 film rights were acquired by SCG, and reside with Hasbro.

Hasbro didn't rule out rereleases. They simply acknowledged the fact that some fans don't want to spend $20 for a second head. Nothing has been publically ruled out. They're, tacitly, exploring all options.

I expect popular Rangers like MMPR Pink will have multiple releases with different head sculpts. That doesn't rule out other options to get Kat.

People complaining about the figs not including multiple actor heads need to look at the big picture.

The only TRUE “conflict” with this is Trini/Aisha as they were both only MMPR yellow.

They can solve this by either including both heads w/ MMPR yellow, or doing an exclusive movie Figure Set with Aisha’s head being the main draw for buying it.

A Ninjetti Figure, using common sense, would most likely include 2 heads, one with the hood & bottom face mask up, and one with the hood & face mask down, but keep in mind in order to be accurate the one w/o the hood/bottom face mask up would still have the headband, so that head would not look proper if put on MMPR yellow...

For the other overlapping actors:

Rocky/Adam/Kat/Tonya Heads - Zeo - they were the only actors to wear these suits so this is where they would be featured first.

TJ/Cassie/Carlos/Ashley Heads - Can be Turbo and/or In Space (Justin would also be Turbo Blue)

Lost Galaxy - Kendrix would come with Pink, and they could release an Astronema fig that comes with multiple heads of her different looks, one being “normal” that could be swapped with LG Pink.

Again, “just buy zeo” isnt good enough because you have characters like adam who have multiple suits and people would like to display all his ranger forms from mmpr-turbo.

Hasbro basically did the same for Jason and packed TWO heads for zeo gold and mmpr when they both could have shared one head. . And Jason aint even the OG gold ranger. But hasbro realized people want to display unmorphed jason in both forms.

Not everyone wants to buy zeo just to complete the mmpr roster. They wouldnt even be zeo rangers if they were not in mmpr first so it would be silly to ignore that.

Well then you could sell off the figure minus the head. Sadly thats probably you best option. People will buy zeo green minus the adam head if its cheap, or simply if they cant find it in their area. I know it sucks but unless there are running changes/rereleases theres not much else to do if you ONLY want mmpr.

Nothing will ever be good enough so why we talking?

Almost like it was a Jason 2 pack or something...

Oh god. It's not about want, it's pushing your hand. THEY want you to buy Zeo and if you want a Kat head so bad then you'll do it. If you don't, whatever. Not including those heads isn't going to affect MMPR sales but not including them can affect Zeo sales.

The short of it is Hasbro, like any other company, is out to make money. Hasbro also happens to be giving much more than BoA was every willing to do at the same price. We can choose get worked up into a frenzy over there not being a Kat head OR you can learn to compromise. I'd rather have accessories over another head because that is the trade off. You want another head then you get less accessories.

Kinda surprised they didn't show off the armored Zack.

The new set looks great, gonna wait till retail to get them cuz of the QC issues with wave 1.

I'm mostly hyped for the putty but a little disappointing its packed with a fighting spirit Tommy. Mostly because i want at least 6 putty's which would leave me with 6 FS tommy's lol

Was also to see renders of wave 3. Maybe hascon?

Hopefully if wave 2 sells well they'll increase the sizes of the waves.

Also hoping for more 2 packs

"I paid $20! Has-bro, you owe me big time!"

The entitlement with this fandom would be hilarious if it wasnt so self-detrimental. We spent literal years trying to get ONE signature weapon per Ranger. We had to deal with compromises, closed weapons, and no weapons.

Now we get basically everything for each Ranger and people want every head sculpt included?

Stop it. You're being silly. You make us all look bad.

Every single post whining about Kat signals to Habsro "hey, Kat has fans, that means money".

A Jason two pack. That has two human heads. Why not just pack one human head? Because Hasbro knows that collectors want the option to display both Jasons helmetless if they choose. Even if you buy Zeo blue for the Rocky head, you still wont be able to display Both Rocky’s at once. Thats what I meant about “buying zeo” doesn’t exactly solve the problem. But We”ll see what happens.
