    Yeah, but one male body makes like 150 rangers with only the helmets, belts and maybe one other cosmetic change needing to be produced.

    If they do more two packs I wouldn't mind getting the ninja designs for the regular five as those were pretty unique looks. You'd have the same issue that you currently have though with who gets packed with the fifth character.

    Yea, I'd want all of them if they were to do any of them

    If Tommy does come with Raph, they could always milk the 2 packs and do 1 ciivlian/ninja ranger packed with a foot ninja, that way troop building is a bit easier

    I've noticed this too with several mecha back when i used to collect Sentai. I think they're connection points for planned mecha that eventually were not released.

    Ok. Actually, it’s not as bad as I remember.

    Especially since most of the Power Rangers (at least in earlier seasons) are supposed to be teenagers, so being slightly shorter is conceptually accurate

    Bcuz the comics seem to be at this time more popular than the shows, the Boom amd IDW seems to be making Hasbro (at least in their minds) all the money when it comes to PR. I wouldn't be surprised if they finish In Space or was it Lost Galaxy to make a crossover TMNT 2pk like DCC did for the BatmanXTMNT

    If they complete teams then people start checking out and not paying as much attention, slowly releasing teams keeps fence riders engaged and more likely to see things they like outside of the specific teams they are looking for. Also, there are no other versions of this specific iteration of the TMNT that I'm aware of. Hell, there aren't even really any IDW based TMNT figures.

    Would hope sometime this month they would reveal the Astronema and Ecliptor 2 pack or Pirantishead.

    That could get revealed on the Fan Friday, especially if the Raph 2 pack got revealed today and they did the Shredder single release tomorrow. They'd need something to reveal on Friday.

    It would be a bummer if they revealed the same things on Friday. Because the ad hinted the crossover.

    Edit: For some reason, I foreseen a vision of the boxart for Pirantishead.

    But completing teams means they can start new teams since they've still got Alien, Turbo, LSR, JF, RPM, SMF, Samurai, etc, that have yet to even get started.

    They can start new teams without completing previously started teams though, completing teams isn't a pre-requisite for starting new ones

    Yes, but my point is they're doing spin-off crap instead of focusing on the real teams.

    On the positive side, they have no excuse to not do Sentai only costumes given they were willing to scrape at the bottom of the barrel and do TMNT versions.

    The TMNT crossover is a popular miniseries from the comic, not really scraping bottom of the barrel, and again, not completing teams quickly will keep fence riders engaged and paying attention. In doing so they may see other stuff they do like beyond the specific teams they absolutely want. Take me for example. I bowed out of lightning collection because of the bs they pulled with the Psychos (releasing 1 as a store exclusive, 1 in a 2 pack and then releasing all 5 in a 5 pack, making people rebuy red and blue). They were one of three teams I wanted (MMPR, Coinless, Psychos). Thanks to this "crap" as you put it, I'm interested in the line again, at least in a limited capacity.

    I tend to think that releasing all the rangers from a series in a few waves is actually beneficial, because if you wait too long, the older figures become harder to get and fence sitters will just sit out completely. The only way it makes sense to string them out is if you're planning a box set which will just screw over early adopters.
