I wish the amount of articulation & detail on these figures were available back in the day when the original toys were available.

These will likely find an audience & customers mostly due to nostalgia IMHO.

Yeah... I used to have all the figures back in the day... I'm so glad we are finally getting some decent figures and such.... I can't wait to see the others and see official promotion pictures soon.... From what I read SDCC is gonna be very big or the MMPR line, so I'm sure we will get Black,Blue,Yellow,Pink and White.

No, it's Japanese. There should be preorders for this up somewhere shipping from Japan first because it's from the Bandai S.H.Figuarts line. But those NA sites are probably preliminary pricings.

Im sure we will get the Zyuranger soon enough... I will be tracking down the other two SL Rangers so I can do an comparison once I get this is July...
I read on some site that they have big plans for MMPR/Zyuranger at Comic Con 2013. I'm Hoping they will do The DragonZord like they did the Megazord also.

it's japanese made, but much like Megaman, and Dragon ball, it's targeted at the american auidence, and being sold by Blufin/tamashi as an american exclusive. don't expect to see these on japanese retail for any cheaper.

They might even cost MORE.

Yeah most likely, but we dont know about Green Ranger's Arm Bands... But in regards to DragonZord I was refering to the 7" scale... The one that is right next to Red and Green Ranger... Our chances of getting that are more likely than a Dragonzord from Brandai America...

Im pretty sure that was the last time we seen the actual Dragonzord in action. I know Sentai restrained it, but story wise its still fully functional. It was heavily hinted that once the coin ceased to be that the connection with it was lost too. But yet they use pieces of it in Season 3 for the Ultrazord. And in season 2 & 3 we did get a tiny amount all new American zord battles. Would of been nice to have Dragonzord helping the Shogun zords or something.

Damn, now im wanting the toys too. But i wouldnt get SHF too small. Ill wait until Medicom gets around to them. Their kamen riders i dont think Hot Toys could beat. The rangers they have released have been hit and miss but if they made these id probably harvest them and put them on truetype bodies

I know its unlikely. But id actually take the step from being a casual observer of this toy line to actually buying it if they released a Goldar. Specifically he needs to come with his wings. We know SHF can make great "monster" figures and Goldar would be icing on the cake for this line. I wouldnt buy Black,blue, pink and yellow but id love to have a little shelf with Tommy and Jason battling Goldar.

Make it so.

And a Lord Zedd. I remember during changing of the Zords when Zedd had Tommy trapped in a cave and was owning him like a boss.

I was never a fan of the Psycho rangers, i dont know why people were a fan of them. they had little to no character, and lasted but a short story arc. Same thing goes for PRIS. It seems really over rated along with Time force.

Few things.

One: Because other baddies had such a long story arc that lasted more than an episode. :lol They lasted two seasons.

Two: They were a lot more physical than the regular bad guy.

Maybe if the Psychos were in a series with a good guy ranger team that i would consider " fighters " id consider them bad ***. If they could take on Tommy, Adam, Jason or whatever and still get the upper hand id tip my hat to them. Being able to beat a baseball player, a dancer, a book reader, a soccer player and Andros isnt that big of a feat.

And the monster forms sucked! Darkonda all the way from PRiS.

Wow, how did I miss this thread?! Eight pages in just a few days, that's awesome. I often find myself looking for topics on Sideshow for things like this and just figured there was no interest.

We all know Super Sentai is better than Power Rangers.. but man, my nostalgia runs deep for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I'm not sure I can even still watch the show, but as a kid it was huge. Getting the morphing Red Ranger figure was a BIG deal for me. This is so awesome. I'm getting every S.H. Figuarts MMPR figure Bandai makes. I wonder if there will be any differences between the Power Rangers and Zyuranger releases. Some Space Rangers would be cool as well.. and maybe the Turbo Rangers too. For the record, the Psycho Rangers were awesome!

I'm also really enjoying Kyoruger lately, which I'm sure is no small part due to my love for Zyuranger. Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs! :D

Do we? I must be the only person on the planet that prefers Power Rangers. But then I've only watched SS clips on Youtube and grew up with MMPR, so there's probably a lot of nostalgia attached to it, but I just don't see the massive difference between the two.

03-14-2013, 02:18 PM
Sentai used to be alot better than Power Rangers. I grew up with MMPR and it wasnt until Ninja storm 10 years later that i found out Sentai even existed. The last few years of Sentai have been pretty sucky though.

It used to be all about the story and characters. But its become an even worse merchandise mover than even PR. Every episode apart from maybe the first 2 and last two just feel like an excuse to give us new cards, or zords or whatever. So because if that, the PR series being alot shorter make it short and sweet and less of something to endure which is what sentai has become.

Saying that, i did really like Goseiger. But that kind of kept itself unique and fresh with its 3 different sets of villains. It felt like 3 small series in one.

Science Friction
03-14-2013, 07:00 PM
Here's how I see it. It's like Kiva said, early Super Sentai was very story driven. Zyuranger has a much more complex and adult story imo than Power Rangers, which at least in the beginning is pretty heavy on the slap stick comedy and like the standard teen sitcoms of the era. That's not to say I don't enjoy it, nostalgia has a strong hold on me, it's just not the same quality of story. The later Super Sentai stuff is definitely more about toys and marketing, I guess they learned that from us, lol. Still, Kyuryuger has been pretty good so far, but it's much more American than Super Sentai used to be. At least that's how it seems to me. If you get the time John_Salmon read up Zyuranger, it's a pretty cool story really.

Ive been watching these guys commentarys on PR episodes lately. They are not experts on the show so they are going in semi-blind. its nice to hear their reactions. They are funny guys. At first it may sound like they are just mocking the show but they are in to it and make some good jokes and observations.

The newest episode they just put up was Return of an old friend part 1, so now im totally wanting the Green ranger figure.

In the past SHF have released red separate, 6th ranger separate and then 2 two packs with the other rangers in. But they might release them separate too. I think its guaranteed that they will do the entire team. Even if its not in the "MMPR" label it will be made under the Zyuranger name.

Now that's the set of Rangers I would love to get and being a figuarts is just the icing on the cake! :yess::yess:

Dairanger and Kakurainger where great series and I hated the fact that Saban chose not to use the outfits from both series when they tackled the idea and footage on Power Rangers. But then again, both original japanese series only had one female, that could be said about Zairanger or the MMPR's original suits. So I guess they could've still had two females in the right season's outfits, even though in reality the japanese footage was a man.

IMO the seasons of MMPRS where they used the footage of Dairanger and Kakurainger were alright but would've been much more entertaining to see the power rangers in the right outfits. :slap

Still that Green Ranger figuarts is a must for collectors like myself. As well as the rest Figuarts will be doing.

Hope we see the White Tiger Ranger in the future!

Oh. I didn't know I never got to watch the Zyuranger series. The only Japanese series I got to watch was Deka and Geki. I really hope they make a GekiViolet figure. He's my favorite by far after Tommy. I use to be a member at RangerBoard and was going to have a guy named King Ranger make one for me but he ended up ripping me off. We were talking for a while and were internet buddies. He taught me how to use base bodies to customize SH figures. Sent him my DekaMaster and Rio to fix and he never sent them back to me. Kept them... keeps saying he'll send them but never does. What a D-bag.

If it wasn't for him I would've never gotten into this hobby of 1/6 scale figures.

I've been interested in these pieces for a while (had no idea this thread even existed, as I've been posting in the other MMPR thread.)

From the 20th Anniversary line, I've got the Legacy Morpher and Megazord. Very awesome pieces. I'm definitely going for the 1:6th helmets next. Then, possibly Figurarts' Red Ranger/Green Ranger....This could be a slippery slope. I'm not about to go crazy though.

LOL. yeah, appearently, the current series in japan spoofs the rest of the genre pretty hard. ESPECIALY MMPR. the american colors on those two, and the Generic "american hero" pose is intended to show that those ARE Tommy and Jason from the american series.


I wonder if Blufin will import the Akiba rangers...

I wonder for fans of Tommy and Power Rangers who don't follow Sentai know that the original White ranger in the Dairanger was actually a whiny little boy around 10 -12 years old maybe younger. :slap

I believe he was the younger brother of the Pink ranger and when they showed the White Tiger Ranger fighting outside of the tigerzord it looked like a kid in the White Ranger outfit.

Which is why when Tommy would fight the puddies in Power Rangers they used new footage, because if they used the Japanese fight scenes the kid was definitely a small fry. :lecture

Still I can't pass on this being a fan of both Dairanger and Power Rangers! I also love Figuarts. :hi5:

Most likely. A scorpina would be badass too

Yeah it made no sense. Thrax was the main badguy in a short story arc in Operation Overdrive. He had apparently been trapped on the moon very similar to Rita as he got freed at start of the arc. Its an Avengers style story with a handfull of rangers returning from the past 5 modern years but also Adam returning as the Black MMPR. They even visit Angel grove for a brief part of the story. & Alpha too!

well.. it's not terrible for a bandai america toy....

That's the 4 inch Zedd. This is the Super Legends.

I think he's a fine stand in with Figuarts until they make their own MMPR villains, especially if one were to improve his paint job, maybe give the red parts a black wash. I think it's only a matter of time before we get villains. Bluefin had a villain poll in which Goldar won, and they mentioned Zedd and Rita on another occasion.

If thats the case Goldar will most likely be first as he's pretty popular... I would love for an Scorpina then I could re-act the Green With Evil Part 4 scene with Evil Green Ranger, Goldar and Scorpina surrounding the Megazord...

Yeah it's a shame. I'd really love to have a Dragonzord to go with the Super Robot Chogokin Megazord. Megazord on his own has always been kind of boring.
