    Super 7, the same company that sold me a backwards Man at Arms, a stucked visor Triclops, loose ankle Hordak and no chance for an exchange. Ive had more luck with Hasbro and Mattel than with them.

    So I have been watching Green with Evil, and thought it would be nice if Super 7 gave the Dragonzord the smokestack it bites in half.

    They wouldn't let you exchange them? Did they at least give you a refund?

    I think they are made to order so they had no spares to exchange

    That's bullshit. They should always make extra for defect purposes.

    Neca pulled that crap with their TMNT movie Tokka and Rahzar. And they’re supposedly bigger than S7.

    I saw the Beet Zord at a ROSS too. Had it been the transforming version, I might have bought it. Shampoo Bottle zords can kiss my rear.

    $40 for the Zeo Megazord is the "right price" for it. But I'm not going to buy a second one unless it goes red tag.

    At this point I'm not playing the MMPR game anymore unless Hasbro does a five pack with corrected helmets. Super7 is too expensive and too many issues, and distribution made collecting LC a miserable experience. Unless I can get these teams as a set I'm not bothering. :/

    Red is obviously squished, but what's wrong with the other helmets? They seem OK to me.

    Honestly, same. But I wouldn't mind if White and a proper Green were in there too. Not sure how many would prefer the core five Rangers be their own box set but we don't have a definitive Green Ranger. You can't even cobble together the Fighting Spirit one with the MMPR to make it because of all the inaccuracies. White Ranger I'm okay with but never found one with good QC. Actually a Tommy two pack would be what they'd prefer to do anyway... so core five pack it is.

    Fans have been rebuying the same MMPR Rangers forever thinking the next iteration was the best we were going to get from retail. I wish we could simply have definitive figures in the Lightning Collection. The asks aren't above what they're capable of based on what we have in LC. I'm really hoping John Warden goes in there and slaps some sense into the people who keep blatantly getting things wrong (potentially on purpose) and give us some real Megazords from older seasons. Not inbetweens like those lame video Megazords that appeal to no one.

    I wouldn't mind rebuying the MMPR team as a 5 pack if it included a ranger sword and ranger gun for each member along with updated helmets, fixed paint apps, and some ranger specific hands. The Thunderslingers would be nice too. In fact, do the Thunderslingers Gun combo isntead of regular ranger guns.

    To anyone that has both/all 3, how does Retro-Morphin Ninjor scale with the Minipla Ninja and/or Shogun Megazords?

    IIRC, he stands taller than the SMP Shogun Megazord but I'd have to verify it when I get home from work.

    John Warden perfected the "vanishing horizon" method of selling nostalgia with Transformers. (Here's an Optimus that's 65% what you're looking for. Now here's one that's 75% there. And 90%. How about a repaint that gets to 95%? And here's 98% but it doesn't transform. Now here's 99% without the trailer.) I'm sure he'll do the same here.

    That would be very unfortunate considering the good I've heard he's done for Transformers but honestly if he goes 90%+ immediately at Power Rangers it would really help because I'm just not happy with Lightning Collection. Considering what we've had to put up with from Bandai despite their achievements, hopefully we can count that as the 65-70% era, insert slightly higher percentage for Hasbro's current performance, and we can get as close to 100 soon assuming he hasn't already been calling some shots. I'll wait and see if we get some real Megazords from previous seasons before getting into that but there's plenty that needs fixing now.

    Some of the issues with LC just scream "nobody double checked let alone single checked" and that needs to be figured out because it's their flagship line. If they're doing these errors on purpose to make us rebuy figures with less errors, at least do it with just MMPR (which they seem to be) and not the less popular seasons too. Nobody wants to rebuy some of those Rangers and I refuse to play FOMO with them until they actually earn it or the close enough version finally comes out. With the rising costs (some of which may not be their fault) with no quality boost to match them and the difficulty of collecting these days, that's money on the table that can go somewhere else.
