    To be honest every time I see Gaoking/Wild Force Megazord it just gives me that Voltron type vibe, but I'm just rambling. And ooh, more Ninja Rangers.

    The whole phenom as of lately, collecting wise, has made me to develop certain "hate" towards either the hobby as a whole or to the brand that produce such items.

    Its a pain to get that Classified line period. MOTU Origins? No way Im paying more than 25 and 30 for those little figures. Just not worth it. Power Rangers? Its better to wait for certain items like the Sycho rangers or vs packs if you dont want to get doubles, just a pain.

    It's honestly overwhelming. Pretty much everything I can recall coming out is stuck in everyone's preorder pile until next year. I don't even remember what the next actual wave is among the sea of exclusives.

    You better believe you'll have to rebuy certain figures for things like more accurate helmets which should've been like that to begin with. It's one thing to release a V2 that improves the mold or be add more accuracy but fixing clear mistakes or walking back their personal creative liberties shouldn't cause you to double dip and be stuck with/have to resell an inferior figure.

    Same. It's become such a hassle these days finding anything in store or beating other collectors/scalpers that it's depressing. Then there's all the news you have to constantly keep up with. It doesn't help that the companies that make these things don't try at all to make the experience easier or less of a pain. They're doing just fine so no need to change their business practices for us. Plus the prices keep going up. Some of which is justified but it's not like they'll reverse them when things get better...

    No idea why the MOTU Origins line keeps getting brought up in topics, but those things are dust collectors in my area. No one wants them and they keep getting clearanced.

    For PR, it's just the nature of the beast when you've got full teams. I'd rather end up having to rebuy a figure or two to get a whole team as opposed to not getting the team completed at all. Like I would have no issue right now if Hasbro were to do a Time Force 5 pack and I had to rebuy Time Red for it. Not only would it give them the opportunity to include some additional weapons, but hopefully it would also mean the paint apps would be superior, especially with the higher costs they're starting to charge.

    Anime-Export finally listed Gao Hunter and Gao Knight. Put in my order for Gao Hunter but am still debating on whether to also get Gao Knight.

    I’m not going to worry about Gao Knight, if BBTS gets it in for pre order for a reasonable price I’ll grab it I can. Maybe Mandarake will have it sometime down the line too. That’s how I was able to get Victory Robo earlier this year.

    Yeah, that has been a main problem for me in terms of collecting.

    Even in my country, different import shops can bring in different exclusives…that’s why I stopped at the MMPR i.e. the first team.

    Been seeing YT videos popping up the last couple days about leaked LC listings that has got me very excited. I don’t normally follow the LC leaks, but apparently this Twitter account has been providing reliable info for a while. So I do hope these are true.

    Apparently a Red Ecliptor figure is coming as well as a Megazord to go with the rumored Dragonzord. Hopefully those zords turn out good. Also
    Power Sword, and helmets for Drakkon and Zedd. Not really my thing but think Zedd is an interesting choice.

    Here we have the stuff I’m really excited for. Finishing off some of the teams’ core members as well as finally starting on Dino Fury. And Wild Force! Including an unknown WF villain (hoping for Zen Aku but I’ll take Jindrax or Toxica also) as well as a Zeo villain (any would be good tbh).

    The bottom three are supposed to be vehicle sets. Glad to see those are still happening.

    Seeing a duplicate In Space Blue is kinda disappointing though. The spot would have better been used for Silver with his unique vehicle. Would be nice if they moved on to doing vehicles on their own to go with already released figures.

    With Dino Charge, Dino Thunder, and Beast Morphers finally near complete, I’m
    curious how they’ll handle releasing the renaming Rangers from those series.

    For Dino Charge a five pack with Aqua, Purple, Graphite, Silver, and Keeper would be a good fan channel release. I wonder if they’d do the Dark/Navy Ranger though.

    I can see Tommy getting a single release as Black Ranger but I could also see him in a versus pack with a villain or a two pack with Red Turbo Tommy.

    Steel I could also see as a two pack with his morphed and unmorphed forms. Or a versus with Venjix.

    I think the question is whether they will ever do a Decker figure.
