    5.5" Articulated Power Ranger figures spanning the series. Red Ranger is due up, but I'm sure if it is successful we'll see additional colors and maybe even zords (Stevey needs an articulation Megazord and Dragonzord, and both Megadragonzords)

    they might as well not have been. I have the original Megazord, Dragonzord, andTitanus. Articulation? Pretty much the same as the G1 gestalts. Meaning shoulders, up and down. Thats about it. Now the individual zords had pretty good, albeit basic, articulation.

    I might, MIGHT, consider getting some of the original MMPR figs. However, if they make the zords, I'm all over that.

    I'd snag up a set of all 6 original series rangers. Just to have them displayed with my UltraZord.

    I assume he was talking about the original Ranger Action figures, not the Zords (which yeah they were bricks...still are surprisingly) But the original toys had a TON of articulation.

    That original mighty morphing power rangers red ranger is awesome! I may be crazy enough to buy a power ranger figure again since I stopped after the original show ended. Wow that stuff looks great! I hope they make the green and white rangers as well! Thanks for the news.

    I was just thinking that it's going to encourage more people to go back and get stuff from their childhood.

    I've been trying to get one of the original Megazords (Orig. Dino, Thunder Megazord, or Shogunzord) for a long time. It's going to put even more pressure on the market for them.

    It sucks cause I'm not even looking for one in mint shape. Just decent shape and has all the parts to form the Megazord. I might have to shell out a lot more now. :(

    I have a boxed, complete Thunderzord Assault team, the styrofoam is kinda fragile, had a small peice break off at one point. But the Zords are complete and if I rcall correctly, dont have any/much playwear. I also have a Red Dragonzord to go with them. Also have a Shogun Megazord with most of the individual zords weapons, and a Falconzord to go with it, minor playwear on them both. I don't plan on selling them, but for the right price, I could be convinced to part with them...

    PM me.

    'Bout time they did this. Now if they can stick elbows, knees and moving heads on some of those Zords

    moving heads would be awesome. If they gave them just that, they'd be a mass improvment.

    Those are neat, but some of their desisions seem odd. The heads are just about the only thing that's really different on them. Everything else is just painted on. It really wouldn't have been an issue had they at least gave them different gloves and boots. It really stands out in some of those, particularly the original and Galaxy rangers. Also painted on armor for the Legend Mode looks horrible. Lastly, the gray weapons. The regular ones always have gray weapons. It couldn't be that tough to color them. In most cases a simple red or gold paint app is the only thing required.

    I'll still probably get a couple though.

    Too bulky indeed but still kinda cool. If they give us Sentai from shows before ZyuRanger it'll be the ultimate fan wank and I will scream in joy for years. I doubt there's a chance of that at all though.

    I'd be all over re done zords but the rangers... well I used to tape the show and fast forward to the zord bit, the ranger were just kinda a wast of space to me.

    That's pretty awsome. I like that Zyu Red has Dragon Ranger's armor. Nice touch.

    I'm a little surprised there haven't been any Sentai "revamp" figures. Kind of like how they ocasionally do with Kamen Rider. I'd really like to see some of those older designs reimagined by a modern day artist.
