    Super Sentai Artisan Dairenoh and Won Tiger are not the Legacy versions. They're just the original DX versions with extra paint, and apparently some additional diecast parts.

    Super Sentai Artisan DX Won Tiger Revealed - Tokunation
    I have no idea why they're doing it like this. It's a very strange decision.

    As for a megazord I'd like to see a SoC of. Ground Gosei Great would be pretty cool.

    For the second question, a franchise I'd be ok with getting trash movies if it meant getting awesome new toys? Let's go with either Starcom or King Arthur and the Knights of Justice.

    Alright, I’m about to lay on some dread-ucation!

    So first off the original crankcase toy from DOTM is based on concept art, aside from the head, it really doesn’t match the CG model.

    Crankcase and berserker are the ones with the big pincer things on their shoulders. They share a CG model, and the only differences between the two are that crankcase has gold “hair”, and berserker has a big red X on his chest. The berserker figure from TLK could easily be repainted into crankcase at a future date.

    Crowbar is the one with the big tendrils on his back, he is unique in that respect, and like crankcase and berserker he transforms into a Chevrolet Suburban.

    Hatchet is the four legged one, again, a suburban.

    Dreadbot is the one that looks exactly like crowbar, except he doesn’t have the tendrils, and he transforms into a VW van.

    I appreciate the discussion on SoC Megazord. He is my only SoC figure, and when I got him at retail I was a bit down on the whole line. Especially when the Power Ranger fans I know we\'re to hyped about it. No that it has been said that this is not the call for SoC I might look at some other stuff too.

    Hoping for some Last Jedi discussion with different opinions on the movie. While I loved it and one of my friends hated it, they at least agree that (ignoring the internet), it's provided the most fun conversations for a Star Wars movie that we we\'re able to see in theaters. And the most to chew on.

    I think the \"punching bag\" movie implies it couldn\'t be good.  It\'s terribleness makes money but all the energy goes to the more classically targeted stuff.  If the movie was good, there\'d be more stuff embracing that take, all fine and good because it is good, but the classic stuff would be set aside, you know?

    Could somebody please explain what Aaron meant by codes and using them to find certain toy locations in a store? That sounds super useful! Where do you find the toy codes? Where do you punch them in? Am I miss understanding this entire thing and sounding like an idiot?

    You can get the DCPI code for an item, either from store employees or other fans and use them in the brickseek tool to find stores with the the toys in stock. At least that is what I do sometimes.
