    I thought it was because fighting a monster in, say, a park on on a street won't (hopefully) cause that much property damage, but calling out the giant robots to get their 70 ton asses down a busy street road for the sole purpose of squishing one dime-a-dozen monster would most likely result in a lawsuit.

    But hey, if they pull out the robots AFTER the monster gets big, then they're justified.

    Well, at least for MMPR, after they get their powers, Zordon told them that they couldn't use unnecessary force against Rita or her monsters.

    Did the rangers have a finishing move in MMPR or no?

    Although, then again, I guess "Shoot monster with giant laser" is less forceful than "Squish monster with giant robot".

    I was lucky. I painted a lot of it in shiney silver paint. (plan to paint the rest later) So I got lucky. I also painted Tyrrano's head, brow, thing.

    Also, if anyone has a spare minipla Gosei Great thay would want to part with lemme know. I'm not a super huge fan of the more simplistic mecha that's been the norm of late, but the minipla make up for it with articulation. I don't mind painting them.

    This really does need to be the 11th commandment or something. You wouldn't believe how much crap I have to deal with to try and preach this point on rebelscum.com....

    I remember how hard I fought to get a damn Supertrain Megazord. As a bigtime railfan who loves trains to death, this toy HAD to be mine. But my mom didn't want to pay $50 on even a birthday present and so I failed to get one when it was in stores...

    Of course she then caved and got me for me loose and used off of ebay....for $60....Way to go mom! :dunce

    I wish I was old enough to buy it myself when it was out. It's such a badass Megazord. I have since acquired the rest of the LSR Megazords as well and got the most out of them.

    I'd say if my collection is missing anything now, it'd be the Astro and Delta Megazords. I have the Mega Voyager at least

    Even with scraped stickers, one arm and not little antenna things mine looks badass.

    Even the arm alone looks like it could punch monsters by itself.

    I've been a Power Rangers fan all my life and I have no Megazords.
    They'd better not screw up Shinken-Oh.

    I have no Megazords.

    But I do have Super Legends Chase Gold Ranger, Green Ranger, White Ranger, and Lord Zedd.

    I did want Green Samurai and Titanium Rangers, but alas, they stopped carrying Power Rangers before I could find them.

    I'd be all over a Green Ranger morpher w/ coin and Dragonzord if they ever released them.

    I wanted the Super Legends White Ranger and the upcoming (last I heard) 4-inch White Ranger, but PR stuff hasn't been sold at regular retail in this country for years, at least not anywhere I've seen.

    I somehow held onto all of mine... Which is almost everything up until Dino Thunder. All I'm missing is the Dragonzord, Titanus, Super Zeo, Pyramidas, Artillatron, Q-Rex, Animus, and the auxiliary and Mezodon Megazord from Dino Thunder. Now that is too many Zords...

    I still have my Dragonzord and Thunder Megazord and Tigerzord from when I was a kid. Didn't get any others until many years later when I got the Wild Force MZ, Animus, Ninja Storm MZ and eventually the Special Edition Black Megazord. Also got a hold of MagiKing, Wolkaiser and Saintkaiser.

    Ended up selling the Ninja Storm one and the really old zords are in bad shape unfortunately. Dragonzord and Red Dragonzord especially. I had sworn off buying more Zords after those but the new MMPR toys and going to PMC got me a little interested again. It's probably for the best that I never did get the new Dino MZ and held off on Titanus. Recently, very recently, I did win some auctions for a new original Titanus and Dragonzord though. I'll need to pull out my SE MZ from storage as soon as they arrive. I thik I'll aim to get some more of the older Zords I missed and really wanted, but I'm going to try and not go overboard.

    As a kid, I had the Mega Voyager, and the Rescue Megazords. I think I also owned the turbo navigator and the small version of the turbo weapons.
