    I have met Bosch a number of times over the years and he was always cool everytime I met him although he always seems tired lol. Maybe I'm lucky but I never felt rushed either while in line but I also don't try to stand around and talk forever because I want to be courteous to other people waiting to meet him.

    It's been maybe 3-4 years since I met him but I remember that outside of his autograph session at a con I went to he also had an individual table in the vendor's hall and was doing one free autograph and $10 for any additional. Thought that was cool of him since he could definitely have charged more!

    The only Power Rangers actor I met so far that was just sort of meh was Austin St. John. It wasn't like he was rude or anything but didn't say much and just signed and done. I have 2 other friends who met him at different conventions and had the same experience too.

    Going to meet Karen Ashley for first time in about 2 and a half weeks so can't wait for that!

    Found In Space Silver Ranger yesterday at GameStop. That was an exclusive right? Oh well, one down, so many more to still track down. Stupid exclusives not all hitting Canadian Retailers. Never did find the Alpha-5/Zordon set at any local Wal-Marts.

    All this current discussion is doing for me is reiterating the old bit about not meeting your heroes...
    They're human, too. Good days, bad days, kind of unfun to be on eggshells wondering which one you're going to get.

    Meh.

    (Although, I met Aaron Archer and spoke to him for well over a half-hour and the dude was a complete gentleman and it was very eye-opening.)

    Oh, I know a lot of people bought that with the express intention of flipping that thing. I think you'll have no problem obtaining one, it's just a question or whether or not you're willing to pay the price. If you're talking MSRP, then yes, it's going to be very hard to get. It's limited to however many NFTs they sold. I get the feeling that the molds are made and production's ready to go, they're just waiting to see how many NFTs were purchased before they make that black and gold run. I'd imagine the original show colors Megazord will be mass retail levels.

    1079 were sold, IIRC. That's incredibly limited. Good for scalpers. Bad for Hasbro - I'm sure they were hoping to move more than that. I honestly think they would have doubled their sales if they had ditched the stupid NFT thing.

    The Tengas are $18 on Amazon now. Tempted to buy a couple, but not sure if I'd rather them or the Z Putties for my display.

    Same thing happened with DT White last year so that's not surprising. Hopefully he goes up on their website.

    I’m not big on the NFT stuff, either, but this makes me wonder what the price will be for the Megazord.

    Clearly the limited release figure with an NFT will cost more than the traditionally colored one. But by how much? If the NFT is $200 are we looking at $150, like a Titan? $100?

    Yeah, I think the normal Zord is going to retail for around $150-ish.

    sounds like that Cobra Commander fiasco that some site was offering that turned out to not be the figure they were offering after all...

    but this NFT Megazord...do they manufacture to order for this based on how many tokens they sold? that could be a pretty small run based on the timeframe it was offered...we're not talking haslab numbers...

    or did they run a batch off already assuming a certain number will sell and offer it in another fashion for much more money?

    That was a completely different type of idiocy.

    The way I’m looking at the special edition Megazord is that while I like the way it looks; if it’s not available at all without the nft then it just wasn’t meant to be. I’m not engaging with that and have zero interest in creating a wax wallet.

    Considering the NFT aspect required that particular strategy to be a US exclusive, I could see there being other avenues of purchase eventually for other pulse supported market.

    Wasn't sure about this since I already have the regular one, but liked the more accurate legs. Guess it would mean I could have one combined. Was expecting a ZenkaiOh Black JuraGaon more than this.

    I appreciate the link.

    Definition of FUNGIBLE Something that is fungible (such as money or a commodity) can be replaced in equal parts by another equal part to settle a debt or an account.

    Since NFTs are non-fungible... they can't be replaced in equal parts to settle a debt or an account.

    I was being sarcastic, but now I'm even more confused by NFT. It doesn't matter though, it's just Monopoly money.

    I think we're all confused by NFTs and why some people seem to think they're a great "investment". :lol

    I think the biggest problem is much like how Hasbro is using the Wax wallet and having you "redeem", others will follow suit. If it's a one-of-a-kind NFT, someone will pay big, dumb money for it. Especially if there's some special redemption involved. -_-
