    Just takes time to learn. Goldar was a nightmare though since I hand painted the gold because I didn’t wanna take him apart and mistakenly break him. Otherwise I would have airbrushed, but I like the hand painted style gives him a nostalgic prop look to me. Since I got 2 spares I might try my hand at repainting another

    And now that back up Goldar order is out for delivery already. :lol  I actually ended up spending less in the end since I was able to pick a slower shipping speed than the original preorder.. for whatever reason it wasn't offered before.. and yet it actually shipped and is expected to arrive within a day. Nice.

    Green Ranger and Putty two pack isn't an exclusive. Well, it's a Fan Channel exclusive which basically means anyone who wants it can carry it... GameStop just seems to be the first place it's popping up, but it's also available from many online retailers as well. Also, there's Psycho Blue which is supposed to be a GameStop exclusive.

    Edit: There's also the Galaxy Red/Psycho Red two pack which is supposedly a Best Buy (of all places) exclusive.

    After nearly 4 months of not finding Zedd (I wasn't allowed to purchase him the one time I saw him, which was a week before the street date,) I finally got mine via Amazon. I'm not even much of a Sentai fan, but this figure is just fantastic. But you already knew that, lol.

    I'm kind of debating getting a 2nd one, just so I can clip away all of the tubing. I think I would've preferred if it had just been molded onto the body, making it look more snug. And I also like how this guy's costume looks without the tubing.

    I thought only Transformers suffered from GPS? I mean I don't recall other toylines having issues with Gold Plastic Syndrome, just The Transformers.

    Also, did BBTS ever have the SDCC exclusive in stock? I'm kind of wondering how to get that one now that it's come and gone. *SIGH*

    1. It was a joke since GPS is long gone, and yes other toy lines suffered
    2. The sdcc Ranger pack will be on Pulse and early for premium members, and I’ll be trying to snag some to help out

    Transformers must be the most noticeable then because I don't recall any other toylines having toys made out of gold plastic crumbling to dust, otherwise all those C-3PO figures would have a HUGE problem.

    I'd say put me on the short list for that SDCC set if possible, but I'm already extending myself a little far these days, but if BBTS doesn't list it ever I guess it's up to helpful folks like you and others to try and nab that set for the international crowd, which sadly we Canadians seem to count as for some asinine reason.

    As far as I recall most vintage C-3po toys were yellow and then Chromed for the most part

    Such a good cosplay just like the show. Plus, with a different head and painting the metal, you could have a solid Colossal Titan cosplay too.

    As for the tubes, I like them. Old zedd toys always had them painted/sculpted on and they looked like weird veins, not tubes.

    Wings! They need touch ups but works well enough for a quick pic

    I know from experience that some old White Ranger figured suffer from GPS. The shield of the 8-inch figure (the one that came with the Tigerzord) is very fragile. The pegs break extremely easily. I also have heard accounts of people who have the white flip head suffering from the same issues.

    That goldar repaint is amazing. I'll have to go start checking around here probably after work today.
