    My wife was a doll and bought me Kyuranger Cerebus for my birthday. Now I have a use for the extra voyagers I bought to complete Orion Bazooka.

    Was speculating what the other accessories may be for the Psycho Pack and was wonder. Do these count?

    Yeah, definitely a little underwhelming, especially after the initial shadow reveal that made him look like a post-modern Mazinkaizer. This looks very...toyetic? I feel like we are losing the "grandness" prior Sentai mecha toys would bring.

    When I was a child, I saw a whole storefront full of Godaikins. I asked the owners what those were. He said they were the granddaddy of GoBots. A strange way of putting it...but the grandness of the mecha definitely caught my attention.

    This doesn't really fall in line with those. I know Bamdai doesn't view the show the same as it did, want to invest in it, yadda yadda. Just disappointing they don't have the old "if you build it they will come attitude".

    I really do dislike how early they bring in 6th rangers these days. They never give you enough time to really get used to the main team chemistry before changing up the formula anymore.

    There's a certain charm to it, but the translucent plastic still scares me.

    I could probably deal with it if it had a decent head, but making it just a diamond with a weird frame on it is pretty lame and makes the rest of it worse

    I'll admit I was a little underwhelmed by that reveal and how it didn't really match the silhouette we saw earlier this year. But then I had a revolutionary thought...

    What if the silhouette wasn't showing us Gigant Driller, but rather the inevitable super combo? Have we been bamboozled this whole time?

    All I know is that the combo better be amazing because King Express was just okay (great concept but iffy toy) and this looks to be heading in the wrong direction from there.

    Just scored the MMPR blue ranger for $35 shipped off ebay:D 

    Which is the most I'm willing to pay for a Hasbro Legends or Plasma figure on the 2nd or 3rd party market.

    All I want now is a movie Slimer from the Plasma series.

    Was thinking on making the Plasmas and Joes, but better not. Staying with the Rangers.

    I was thinking about getting some of the Ghostbusters and Joes to use as bodies for my LC unmasked heads. Maybe if I can get some of them on discount. Would be cool to have some rangers as a Ghostbusters team. Don’t know if the heads will fit though. Have had trouble with some Marvel and Star Wars figures not working.

    Yeah I went overboard buying Magna Defender and Shadow Ranger.

    Ultimate Big Chap, Pennywise and T-800 Terminator will be my last Neca figures.

    Unless they announce a Doc Brown to go with the reveal of Marty.

    It seems most of the lines I collect are reaching a conclusion:

    DC - Done
    Gundam - 3 left
    Marvel - 3 left
    Power Rangers - Done
    Star Wars - Done
    TMNT - Done
    Transformers - Done

    Marvel and Transformers could change based on future Legends and Masterpiece reveals.

    So... Can you guys convince me not to buy the rest of the ryusoulger toyline? Thanks to some people here, I finally went on amazon japan recently and I really wanted to complete my siege collection first but GUESS NOT! Although the shipping is kinda abismal. Should I just delete Amazon Japan from my mind? Because I'm seeing some good prices for the jetman minipla...

    Will they ship the Jetman Minipla to the States? Last time I tried, they wouldn't.

    As far as Ryusoulger, buy now or regret later.
