    I recently ordered (Sunday) Lightning Collection Yellow Ranger from Pulse.

    More to the point how fast do they process orders and how fast is FedEx home delivery?

    I understand the site says 5 business days.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Please and thanks.

    It depends and... it depends. Processing time is probably okay because it’s not a peak ordering like Toy Fair or the holidays, unless they’ve been inundated with orders from Lightning Collection stocking. Delivery is very much a local matter.

    It depends. I've had a figure arrive in 2 days with their free shipping. In fact, I've had them send me an email telling me something has been shipped out and then it arrived the next day as they sent the email later than they shipped it.

    And on that note, I just received my shipping notice for Yellow Ranger.

    Honestly, I do too. But I'm mecha oriented and the offerings have been either lame or almost non-existent from Hasbro. The two "legacy" mecha we've seen so far have been a bit on the "ick" side so far. I hope what Split Lip says is true - that we will see proper collector style Megazords in the near future. Because right now, I'm just kicking myself over not buying a Shogun Megazord several years ago for $75 when I thought a Bandai Legacy version was inevitable. More fool me.

    So yeah, I guess that leaves just going the BoJ import route. At least I'm getting cool Megazords that way. And this year's Ryusoulger clearance sales are the time to buy before next year's adaptation in Power Rangers, when you may or may not get actual transforming mecha from Hasbro.

    I guess it's a good time to be a North American ranger figure collector, though.

    I pre-ordered Rita and Zedd from Gamestop.

    Pulse has yet to ship the Yellow Ranger!

    I must express some disappointment with them.

    Last they contacted me the figure had left the warehouse.

    On the bright side I'm not dealing with bigbadtoystore.

    got the new wave in today...

    Trini is by far the winner of the batch...great likeness, great figure, two accessories and two effects pieces...

    Colby has a great likeness, great costume...not sure why people complained so much about the laptop, it's a neat unique accessory...

    Jack is also well done, nice that his weapons combine and the likeness is pretty much there too...

    Rocky's likeness...i can sorta see it in profile, but front-on, yeah it's lacking...and I'm not quite satisfied how the cut of the costume is reflected in the shoulder joints...not a horrible figure (well mine has two left feet, but at least that's not noticeable) but the lesser of the batch...

    I posted pages back that if ever Hasbro decided to make Zords, they can utilize what they did under their Titan Class Predaking.
    Brick Limbs but Articulated Combined Robot form.

    Do the weapons form the power blaster or is that only available through the 2 pack?

    I posted about the Super Minipla Jaguar Vulcan a few days ago, and just got and built the SMP Sun Vulcan Robo yesterday, so I'll follow up a little bit here.

    Sun Vulcan Robo is probably the best of the SMP Sentai line yet. Yes, it's a simple combination with basically a torso and two legs combining, but there are some nice engineering involved to facilitate posability and the simplicity allows for a very solid robot and a complete transformation/combination that doesn't require additional parts. Together with Jaguar Vulcan, this set is simply priceless to me (the original DX Sun Vulcan Robo was the first ever chogokin toy I got as a kid, but it took a shelf dive about 3 days in and broke off an arm:cry ). I'm so glad something like this is available today. At this rate, the SMP Victory Robo and Grand Liner should be pretty spectacular.

    Wait, they did the carrier mech too?

    I'm currently watching Sun Vulcan and it's all right. No where near as good as Denziman and I expected more from it being a direct sequel.

    Yes, they did the carrier as a Premium Bandai release.

    I have no idea if Sun Vulcan was any good because I actually never watched it. I grew up in Taiwan and back then there weren’t any Tokusatsu shows shown there. They sold all the toys though, so I knew about all of them, just never got to watch any.

    I wonder if they’ll eventually do Battle Damaged Rangers (Rangers with scuffs/ dents in the helmets, burns where there would be weapon strikes) or fully civilian Rangers (fully de morphed)

    This showed up on Amazon Japan when I was checking on my Kiramajin order. It's tempting but every time I try SMP, I'm let down somehow. :/ At some point, you just finally say nope.
