I'm really itching for the rest of the Remastered figures already.

I keep going back and forth.  The unmasked heads just aren't selling me.  Trini's is the best for sure.  Billy's is second--it's more of a caricature IMO, but the removable glasses helps it.  Tommy's is just off--again it's more of a caricature/highly stylized JDF.  Kim and Zack are close but just not there--Kim just look bored.  Jason's is.......oh, wait.......

I already have the screen-accurate Red helmet from the color swap two pack, and I've cobbled together five blade blasters in holstered positions, so I've been upgrading on my own for a while now.

I think the one I'm most looking forward to is Rita, all those heads look great.

And then we have Super 7 who are getting us the Bulk and Skull that every MMPR fan is asking for.....It all looks good except they will tower over your Lightning Collection stuff.  The more I look at them the more I wonder if I can't just live with that.

Best case scenario is that Hasbro returns from "hiatus" with these guys right out of the gate in one year.

I'll be real curious if they actually make it into production. But it is NUTS to see action figure versions of those characters 30 years later. Thanks, nostalgia!

The remastered figures don't really do it for me. I wanna like them but they have so many problems. The heads for some of them are about the only thing i deem worth it at this point, and not for that price. Hopefully they go on sale. If not I'm fine with the ones I have.

I bought the 30th anniversary special issue this last week for the comics. It's pretty cool seeing Kat and Tommy's wedding. As well as a new story written by Amy Joe herself, which is actually a prequel to set up a mini series that she is writing that will be released next year based on Kimberly.

I picked that up too.  Not only did you get a Kat and Tommy wedding in one story, but a Kimberly and Tommy wedding in another.  In the same book!  That should give the "Kat or Kim" crowd something to talk about.  I personally don't think he can go wrong.  I liked that issue, interesting stories, good art.  Recommend.

I haven't read the whole thing yet. I've been too enamered with starfield to do literally anything else. I just read the Kat and Tommy wedding on the way home when I first bought it lol.

Got a Rita on sale from GameStop. Couldn't resist any longer - and she looks great! Her head is HUGE but as I never took the Zedd/Rita one out of the package I never noticed. The faceplates are so thin and dainty. But how fun to have so many versions of this character available, finally, 10,000 years after her first appearance.

So of course they make her packaging twice as big.....because Hasbro cares about the environment.

Remastered Black Ranger shipped from amazon, should be here tomorrow.  I guess amazon might be the ideal place to buy from in this case.  If you get a defect that you just can't live with, it's an easy return.

No but I'm gonna guess it's probably $100. That's $25 a piece which is now retail price. But Amazon could try to get greedy and charge more. If it is over that it'll eventually go on sale or discount. The comics have less of a base then the show, and just about all those went on discount at some point or another.

Omega Rangers will most likely be the Pulsecon exclusive while the Master Morpher will most likely be available at Fan Channel retailers.

Depending on price I may be down for that master morpher.  Even though I'm not into roll play accessories.  I already ordered the reissue of the dragon dagger...
