I generally dig the tv shows and will watch them if they happen to be on Jetix or whatever. I don't really follow them though. My question is, what exactly is the point of buying the figures? It seems like when playing Power Rangers, it would be more fun to role-play than to try to emulate martial-arts with figures. And besides that, don't they generally end up piloting zords anyway? Having to choose as a kid, I'd probably just buy the zords and ignore the figures. Maybe I'd buy role-play weapons and whatever little devices. But I am of course very biased, being a Transfan So I'm wondering what collectors buy, and what they truly enjoy.
