    I've been a Super Sentai fan for several years now and I don't have any merchandise from it. The real stuff is a bit too pricey, so I looked to the Power Rangers stuff. I rather liked the idea of the retrofire series. I looked at some reviews and the Jungle Pride megazord seemed to be the best figure currently available.

    I thought the articulation was pretty cool, totaling 18 points. But the paint scheme seemed too simple. So I added all the details to make it show accurate.

    I added:
    - blue paint on the GekiTiger's eyes as well as the black trim around it going up to the ears.
    - Changed the black on the outside of the face to silver and the bits on the inside to black.
    - Painted the "rings" on the biceps black
    - filled the holes on the back of the fists with hot glue and painted orange.
    - painted the fist claws silver
    - black paint on the back stripes and back skirt.
    - black details on the tiger paws at the thighs
    - black on the thigh and lower thigh
    - silver on the back of the legs
    - orange on the leg bumps
    - black on the back of the legs under the silver
    - yellow on GekiCheetah's spots
    - black on GekiCheetah's head spots
    - silver on the feet of GekiCheetah and GekiJaguar as well as the top of the eyes above the "sunglasses"
    - black on the cheek stripes of GekiJaguar.

    Very nice. :D  I always thought retrofire could go a bit pricier if it had better paint aps and joints. (As in all the same as this one.)

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I have NO idea why all the others don't have the same joints. The lack of detail I can understand, but really, the articulation for a toy line should remain roughly constant.
