If those big zords could combine they'd actually be useful. As is I don't see the point. They're not even as articulated as they could be, so I'm not sure why they couldn't make them combinable. Black Dino Thunder looks pretty nice.

I could see people been more likely to bite at 1/4 scale helmets as they are more likely to fit into a collection and better chance of getting a full team + a bit cheaper.

I've said this hundreds of times, but Bandai fucking shit the bed with that line and never gave it a real chance outside of Japan. On top of that, American fans didn't do their part and waited for sales and second hand shops to get entire teams so anything non-MMPR was fucked to begin with.

I still remember when people would not buy the Shinkenger/Gokaiger releases because there were web exclusives teammates without a US release. Then there were people who wouldn't buy Gobusters/Kyoryuger because they didn't reveal every single ranger at once and they didn't want to risk having incomplete teams.

I've received so many figures that smell of cigarettes or Axe that I only buy sealed when possible now. That and too many people getting rid of stuff with QC issues.

>>6566605
Bandai should know they can't rely on the American PR fans for anything import related at the best of times.
They should really look into doing full teams in one go, even if it's a more expensive set, more likely a person would get a full team as opposed to a full set of Kamen Rider forms.

Went to NYCC yesterday(only day I got a ticket for). The Tommy set sold out in less than an hour. I did find an In Space Pink Ranger for $14 though so that was pretty awesome. If I got that set I'd have felt inclined to pick up the metallic MMPR set but now I don't. Just gonna do In Space, Psycho Rangers, non-metallic Tommys, and probably Dino Thunder.
>>
>>6566739
Yeah, I probably wouldn't have been interested in the Metallic Rangers either if I didn't already have SDCC Red from the first year these figures came out. I'm skipping In Space myself, even though I did watch it and enjoyed it. I'm debating getting all of Zeo, I'll definitely get at least Jason since the Gold Ranger is my all time favorite Ranger design. I'll probably get Dino Thunder since it brought me back to the Series and you know, more Tommy.

He objectively wasn't. Trey was a hell of a lot stronger with the powers, and Jason eventually had to give them up altogether cause his body couldn't handle them.
>>
>>6566351
I think the best way to revive the line is make it 100% P-Bandai exclusive. That way they only produce the amount ordered.

I wouldn't care about using a middleman for it all, so long as I finally completed the teams I diligently pre-ordered straight from Bandai (well via a middleman, but close enough).

I'm pleasantly surprised to see the Good vs Evil packs continuing on, and not just as Walmart exclusives this time, but it looks like it will mostly be re-releases again. I imagine they'll put 93 Rita in one of the packs, but ALL of them should have new figures. Many Rangers could be made with only a new head.

The legacy figure line is like a sick dog that needs to be taken out behind the barn and put down. Bandai has irrevocably fucked it up in far too many ways, and it needs to just be put out of it's misery instead of dragging it on with more shitty figures.

To be fair, consistently fucking up collectors releases is BoA's specialty. I'm honestly surprised the Legacy Megazords are still going after the first one was just the 2010 release with die cast and less stickers and every other release have had horrible balancing issues due to the shitty Zordbuilder ports combined with useless diecast.

In other words, the Legacy Rangers will live on despite all the botching.

One of the guys at Bluefin said MMPR sold huge. It was Ninja Storm, Overdrive, and the Samurai 6-pack that didn't sell well here. Overdrive was incredibly unpopular, Ninja Storm was middle of the road at best, and there were a plethora of reasons the Samurai set sold poorly. So they used polling to try to figure out who the fans did want, and ultimately it was seen as inconclusive.

If anyone is to blame it's the fans for not banding together to push a single team. Zeo and Space were the highest voted teams, split about 50/50. Then you had a decent amount of people yelling for Time Force or RPM. It was too scattered for Bandai to feel comfortable proceeding with another team. If everyone had just said make Zeo next we'd have probably gotten them, and the sales should've been good enough to show Bandai that the demand is there for non-MMPR teams. TLDR: You played yourselves.

This might be a little off-topic, but I'm looking for some Power Coins for the Legacy morpher. (Triceratops and Mastodon)

I got the movie Red morpher, but I'm a Blue/Black fan. Have you guys tried those resin coins from Starchild Studios or MMPRProps? I don't think Starlight does single coins, and I don't really want the whole set.

Starlight coins are diecast, but you don't need to resort to that. There's a dino coin set that's still readily available. $25 on the Toys R Us site, and with a sale you can get it cheaper. Unless you find someone who bought multiple morphers and is willing to unload his extra coins this is probably gonna be your cheapest option.

Considering most places have never seen Blue/Black/Pink In Space or the metallic MMPRs, the issue is not a lack of product, it's that the product the retailers DO get doesn't move. I still see places sitting on the same NS Blues and even Yellows from when the figures were originally released over a year ago.

Power Rangers is an odd beast. It's not like comic properties or Star Wars where people can cherry pick from a variety of unique characters. PR teams are very samey, and the lack of weapons doesn't help to distinguish them from one another. With PR you tend to have two types of people, those who want full teams, and those who only want reds and/or sixths. Moving the non-red core members is always going to be difficult because they don't stand out, and committing to a full team ends up running you $120. I think beyond MMPR, the legacy line would have been better suited to reds, sixths, and villains. Maybe you could throw in other popular Rangers from time to time like Jen or Zeo Adam, but I just don't think full teams work at a $20 price point.

Basic 5 inch figures are the only feasible way I can see full teams actually selling well. There's a big difference between $60 for a team and $120. If Bandai were to release 5 inch Alien and Ninja Storm Rangers within the Super Ninja Steel line for $10 a piece I don't think they would have any trouble selling. Also it would increase the odds of kids buying them thanks to the low price point, same scale, and similar themes. Dino Charge could have released metallic MMPRs and Dino Thunder, Kyuranger's adaptation could do In Space and SPD. I think it would be a hell of a lot more appealing to both the young and older fans than padding out the main line with useless cockpit modes.
>>
>>6576840
If they made them a little smaller, literally figuarts sized, to save on plastic, and sold them at $15, it would've helped so much. For one, they would've worked better with SHF. The 5'' sculpts are too shitty, though, I never touch those because they look even worse proportioned than the roid rangers. Super Legends had the perfect aesthetic and was about 6'' scale.

The 5" legacy line had the most asinine distribution I have ever seen in my 30 + years of action figure collecting.

It started with cases of straight Zedd, and it seemed like stores were getting two or more cases of him, so that was 24+ Zedds without any of the others to balance him out. The follow up to that was Jason, both Tommys, and... Zedd again... for some insane reason. Finally came cases of Kim, Billy, Trini, and Zack. The Kim and co cases were initially pretty limited. It seemed like stores only got a case or two and then they were gone for months as people bitched about not being able to find them. Perhaps Bandai underestimated demand? In any case, they did eventually get more of them into stores, only this time they were arriving in dedicated cases like Zedd initially did.

Now in theory this wouldn't have been terrible if stores were getting a case of each Ranger, but that wasn't what happened. The cases weren't distributed in any sensible manner, and stores were getting cases of nothing but one Ranger. Some stores only had Billys, others only had Trinis, others only had Zacks, it was a mess. Pic related shows a store that only got Billy cases.

Despite all this incompetence the figures eventually managed to sell through (in most places at least), and they apparently sold well enough to get a wide re-release a year or two later (they were initially exclusive to Toys R Us). The 95 movie figures were a bit better distributed, but they were still unnecessarily split between two cases instead of just putting the 7 figures in a single case and calling it a day.

Metallic Rangers have arrived!
>>
>>6580688
Does Green come with the Sword of Evil?
>>
>>6580696
He does. Green and white are just the regular versions and red is SDCC red, I picked him up at the con. They practically begged me to buy one. I don't think he was moving fast at the con.
>>
>>6580688
I just picked up Red. Not super impressed, but maybe that's because I only had White before this. He looks so good.
>>
>>6580688
Tell me about the Metallic paint! Why do they wear it?
>>
>>6580700
I'm gonna get the metallic bundle when it comes out.

Green, White, and Zeo Red. Whatever the fuck it's called.
>>
>>6580784
Bad news, it was the NYCC exclusive. It isn't coming out.
>>
>>6580784
But that GR is based off the Fighting Spirits episode that has the silver stripe on the helmet and the wrong color morpher. Wouldn't look right with the rest of the MMPR.
>>
>>6580830
What does this have to do with the fact that the set was a NYCC exclusive and won't be released otherwise?
>>
>>6580873
Do you not understand how to read threads?
>>
>>6565732
This can't be more than a prototype. I mean even the ankle pins aren't black. That's not a matter of paint, but just casting in the right color of plastic. Even BoA can't screw that up.
>>
>>6580770
In the show, main 5 and white had metallic armor upgrades, which just meant shiny spandex. In the toy line, Bandai loves to fuck over their customers so they made the metallic versions in order to redo MMPR with weapons this time. Unfortunately, the "metal" plastic looks fucking good and this is the only way to vote with actual money for weapons instead of BAFs so here we are.
>>
>>6581149
Does anyone else here not like the "metallic" look? It makes some of them look like they're made of jelly.
>>
>>6581154
I like the visual look but I do think it would look nicer on different figures. Not sure if it's the plastic but it looks almost translucent on the red ranger.

No matter how hard I try I just can't like the Legacy figures. If Bandai had actually consulted the fans before making them the figures would be very different. As they are they're "it's better than nothing" tier. People buy them begrudgingly because the perfect PR figures they got a taste of aren't being made anymore. Hell even Bandai America's own Super Legends were leagues better than these.
>>
>>6581211
>people buy them begrudgingly

There are many, many people who don't share your opinion, friend.
>>
>>6581211
Look man I don't like the Legacy figures either but to say that there aren't people out there stupid enough to is kind of ignorant
>>
>>6581154
I think it looks terrible. The half-assed semi-translucent swirly "metal" plastic companies use sucks.
>>
>>6581211
The fans dont make figure budgets
>>
>>6581221
Eh with how much the fucking white ranger of all things is shelfwarming, I don't think people care about them one way or another.
>>
>>6581211
You have to remember, in America, toys collectible or not are still looked at as a kid thing. Large companies like Hasbro, Mattel, BanDai make their toys geared towards 4+ years olds. If you want collector grade figures that's what the internet is for. If you want to pick up a mid range collectible go Walgreens while picking up some BandAids and banana chips.
>>
>>6581267
White Ranger is packed 2/6 in the case with the Space rangers and 4/6 in the MMPR only cases. Really doubt it's fans not caring about him.
>>
>>6580654
This years sentai team, the Alien orb ones I take it. I don't think BanDai even makes Sentai figuarts anymore.
>>
>>6581290
I hate to be that autist but it's Bandai.
>>
>>6581267
White Ranger is the best looking one and gets overstocked. Despite that, they STILL sell through. You really don't know what you're talking about.
>>

>>
>>6581320
Widely reported, friend. You would be hard-pressed to find White Rangers sitting on shelves at this point, and as previously stated ITT, they constitute 1/3 and sometimes 2/3 of the entire stock due to demand.
>>
>>6581320
Is that the same as "nobody likes them and people only buy them begrudgingly!"
>>
>>6581221
>>6581259
Are people buying them because they genuinely like the figures, or because there isn't an alternative? All I seem to see is people bitching about them so I'd say it's the latter. Figuarts are still brought up as the gold standards years after the line died. If figuarts still existed today I can't imagine anyone would be buying these, but they don't, so people buy them while thinking "I wish the figuarts were still going."

>>6581263
The fans could have said don't make them in a retarded 6.5 inch scale. Don't give them cartoonish proportions with roided men and giant tittied women. Give them their god damned weapons instead of a useless build-a-figure.

Funny how the 5" triangle box Legacy girls sold fine. Maybe take a look at why the Legacy girls aren't selling before writing off all female figures Bandai. Could it maybe have anything to do with the fact that they look fucking horrendous?

I see at least 5 at every Wal-Mart I frequent that didn't already clearance them out and remove their Legacy pegs

As an American, I can definitely attest to liking balloon tits.

I also like the current Legacy 6.5" line, but can also admit BoA bungled the shit outta it. It could've been so much better.
>>
>>6582131
Good. Maybe they'll start to not listen to every retarded fan in this fanbase.

But the line is failing specifically because they haven't been listening to the fanbase.

Billy should have gotten the spotlight finally. Billy carries throughout the whole MMPR and Zeo seasons. Billy had all the ideas on how to win. Billy had all the inventions that allowed shit to happen. Teleporter wristwatch? Flying car? Figuring out how to beat each monster as it came? All Billy.

TLDR : Billy should have been the gold zeo ranger.

Mate, people actually want them to not pack so many females.
(Mostly cause they look terrible.)
BoA talks about how they listen to customers and what not all the time, like when they're mentioned in MMPRToys, but they never really do.

Want a 6-inch line that scales with Marvel? Nah 6.5 and ROID RAGE
Want a revival of the Super Legends line? Nah flippy heads!
Want a reissue of the regular-ass Megazord? Non-transforming zords!

Fucking ridiculous.

I kind of like the new metallic figures. I wish any retailer on my country would pick them up but it seems like they are just straight up uninterested in toys in general.

Also, interchangeable heads when?

Was it a Conan sword?
For some reason I always pictured him with the katana from Samurai, even though I knew it was a western sword.

is it just me or does MMPR look the worst in this bandai marvel legends power rangers line

they look so off
>>
>>6583162
They definitely look the most awkward. Ninja Storm has mesh and sleeves to hide their shortcomings, and Space has more linear designs that aren't interrupted by the 6-packs everyone is sporting.
>>
>>6583162
And MMPR has those awkward shoulder things to them for no reason.

It's not just you. The shoulders, the chest diamonds are too small and the ab crunch breaks them up on the guys, the diamonds on the gloves and boots are shaped wrong, the morphers are huge, Red's helmet is way off model, and Green's is also off to a lesser degree. Not only are they awful looking compared to the figuarts, but they're even less accurate than the 5 inch figures which have accurately sized/shaped diamonds, properly proportioned morphers, normal shoulders, and better Red/Green heads.
>>
>>6583702
I wish I bought Figuarts Red when it was cheaper, but I had to settle with Red on roids. Mine is the sparkly clear version.
>>
>>6582583
I always felt like he got middle fingered pretty hard when his age up fix backfired and led to the most bs write off. Maybe he got some alien pussy at least (unless the character is now gay to match the actor and be retardedly progressive).
>>
>>6583766
Honestly I bought the Figuarts and BAF Red and they were almost the same price with latecomers tax, this was before I knew about the metallics.

I really fucking hate the push to make Billy gay. Firstly it's insulting and implies David Yost couldn't play a straight character because of his personal life. It' not flattering, its shameless, and patronizing. Secondly, Billy got so many love interests in the show its practically a part of his character.
>>
>>6583771
>Maybe he got some alien pussy at least

Crazy to think, but it's been long enough that you could introduce some new alien ranger as Billy's son or daughter from Aquitar.

The 5 inch sculpt is better than it looks, Bandai just fucked up the visor paint. With fixed paint I think it looks better than figuarts or legacy.
>>
>>6584336
Not sure how that soft sculpt is better. At least the figuart is sharp.
>>
>>6584369
Because the figuart visor is the wrong shape, and it throws the entire helmet off.

literally nobody but you fucks thinks that billy is better than tommy unless he's black billy, black billy stole the movie and made it all watchable (unless you're a purist)

>>6584066

now, this, actually works on two levels, if they DID bring him back but he was gay, then they could explain it by a common enough "they were all me struggling to deal with my feelings" phase gays go through, and if they didn't, they could easily make him bi to have a "power rangers should not be homophobic, and all of us have since rgrown up, so even though he left because tommy was an ass to him when he caught billy looking at a boy (say, jason, zack or tommy himself.) he has grown up and apologized, bringing billy back, and billy has flirted with both genders.


if they wrote it well, and gave consideration to it so it was in there, it could be done either way while retaining the "we were wrong then and know it now" attitude it would have to have.

but, this is power rangers, it is home to cheesy writing and bad acting, so that's not likely.

>>
>>6584690
Considering the shit David Yost put up with while he was on the show, it would be in considerably poor taste to write all that stuff on his character like that.

I'm fine with having a gay ranger or whatever since PR doesn't make their characters revolve entirely around one character trait, but retconning Billy like that is pretty insulting to Yost the same way making Sulu gay in the new Star Trek movie was to Takei.

There's two waves before the Psychos, Bandai is lying to people to try to move those girls. We haven't even seen prototypes yet, you bet your ass they would have shown them if they had them.
>>

Couldn't agree more. They act like it's our fault they can't move units, but they claim they never heard any negative feedback regarding the Pamela Anderson sculpts they use. I can't imagine who's running market research over there but they should be fired.

Where is this from?
>>
>>6582583

Billy got screwed because he fucked Kimberly IRL as part of his desperate bid to cure himself of his homosexuality.

One of the executives at Fox had a huge crush on Amy and when he found out that she fucked him, he ordered Yost fired from the show, with Saban using his homosexuality as the excuse.
>>
>>6587543
Oh for fuck's sake.... Not this urban legend again!
>>
>>6587487
>he isn't reading the boom comic
Get on that shit. Immediately.
>>
>>6587546
What the hell are you talking about? Did Yost really fuck Amy Jo Johnson?
>>
I'm so fucking pissed at Bandai. I haven't been able to find In Space Blue anywhere since wave 3 launched and then I learn they fucking pulled all in space figs from the assortments.

And now wave 4 is JUST MMPR red, blue and black.

If you actually think you're gonna get those Zeo, DT and psycho figs you're a fucking moron.
>>
>>6587548
It's an urban legend that circulated on usenet and Power Ranger forums in the late 90s and early 00s.

The rumor goes like this: when Power Rangers hit it big, one of the executives at Fox started dating Amy Jo. Everything is going good, until he gets her to quit the show by claiming he can make her a "real star". Amy Jo finds out that he's lying to her for pussy and dumps him after she quit the show, then has a one night stand with Yost post-break up because they are BFFs.

The exec finds out Yost had sex with Amy Jo and orders Saban to get rid of him/cockblocks having Billy be the Gold Ranger.

The firing didn't come outright at the start of Zeo because of issues with contracts (Yost had a long term deal Saban didn't want to void and get sued over) and the fact that he was praying that the executive would go away and he could keep Yost. To the point that the Phantom Ranger was supposed to be Billy, as a means to make him a Ranger again.

Yost's butt-hurt (from the original rumor) is that Saban kept lying to his face about being the Gold Ranger, until some of the writers basically told him what was going on. Yost and Saban got into a big fight, at which point Yost told Saban to fire him if he and the executive didn't want him around.

The whole "Amy Jo fucked David Yost to try and cure him of his homosexuality" came later, when Yost being gay/fired from the show came out and the rumor got twisted to incorporate that into the mix.

Another variation had Steve Cardenas being fired from the show, replaced with a pre-teen, being a direct result of this; that Cardenas openly took Yost's side when he found out how Saban and Fox were screwing with him, leading to Saban firing him at the end of Zeo when he was ordered to replace a cast member with a kid after Beetleborgs was a huge hit.
