    Other than Red and Green, they would have to be like the "Premium Color" DBZ Figuarts. Tamashii never straight-up reissues Web Exclusives (which every Zyuranger was other than Red and Green). MMPR Yellow is actually the weird one, being 100% US exclusive.

    I would be all over a Metallic Armor set. (And I already own all the MMPR Figuarts!) But again, Bluefin is still sitting on the metallic Samurai set, so I imagine it's unlikely, though not entirely impossible. I mean, 25th anniversary is next year.

    I assume they meant for Bluefin to reissue them.

    Are the MMPR Figuarts really fetching that high of pricetags these days?
    The last I remember hearing, Pink was super-expensive, as was one (or both) of the Tommy ones, right?

    They're all easily over $50 USD on average. Sometimes much, much more.

    I'm still missing the Pink Ranger. Haven't checked on her recently but I recall her going for quite a lot. Way too much for me to complete the team.

    Did you order the metallic one with the weapon or are those out?

    Yeah, but Bluefin can't reissue them unless Bandai does. It's a very big circle of oxymoron.

    Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarranger!!!

    They can distribute figures that were web exclusive in Japan as a regular release over here (that's how it works for the vast majority of Dragon Ball Figuarts), but once they're sold out, they're sold out. A new release would have to be like the "Premium Color" Vegeta, Trunks, and Cell that came out.

    Actually, it sounds like they now have had a change in their contracts and can no longer sell web exclusives outside of DBZ and Sailor Moon. They said they can't even do the web exclusive Monster Arts anymore.

    Outside of Monsterarts (which is dying) and Power Rangers (which is dead) what web exclusives did they release besides DB and Sailor Moon stuff. Also, isn't the Japanese release of Strange a web exclusive? We're getting him here thanks to whatever deal they reached with Marvel/Hasbro (though it seems they have to include pricey special accessories to do so).

    My DX Kyruenoh came in the mail last week. Glad he screams his name out because, phonetically, I was calling him "Ki-urine-oh" instead of "Cure-in-oh". LOL!

    Only paid about $70 shipped off HLJ and that's about what he feels like he should cost. Still missing the more classic 1980's style of mecha...but the light show kind of makes up for it. And I like the fact you can see the drivers in the spheres.

    Sounds more complicated then it should be.

    Looking at Ebay completed listings for a complete set of domestic ones sold for $790 USD and the Japanese ones sold for $1100 USD. I couldn't imagine paying that much for 7 or 8 figures that are basically the same. I think I only paid $230 Canadian total for them all when they came out.

    I still haven't picked up the Turtles but with the way these have sold I am really reconsidering picking them up while I can. I could see the same thing happening.

    Well... Took the plunge, spent more than I wanted, and won the Legacy Collection Green Ranger on eBay. Not a huge fan of the franchise but I always liked the MMPR designs and they look like pretty good figures. Now to wait for the White Ranger and the metallic rereleases of the 5 main Rangers to hit the stores.

    Stupid question, just as I don't normally drift much into Sentai/PR stuff. I notice that Tamashii Labs (Japan) is releasing a nice Green Ranger Dagger next month for ~$130. I notice Bandai America is releasing a similar "Legacy" piece for $69. Does anyone know what the main differences are? Or how badly BA does when compared to the Japanese eleaaes?
