Found Ninja Blue & Ninja Black at Target today. Just a heads up, if you think the paint apps were terrible on White & Pink, prepare yourself for even worse. I was fortunate to be able to go through each case to find the best that my store had to offer.

See, this is why I hate exclusives. I always try and find the ones on shelves with the best paint apps. There is no Target near me, so even if I was able to order them all online, who knows what condition they’ll be in when they arrive?

I have had paint and color issues on every single LC figure I’ve purchased (sans Lord Zedd). It’s ridiculous at this point.
I still have 2 of each preordered through Target. I've decided to keep the preorder just in case they arrive in better condition. If they are trash, I can always return them to the store.

Definitely. That’s another reason I like it. I like a lot of Kamen Rider designs, but the Figuarts are relatively expensive. I still have a few though. Love Kamen Rider Ouja and Horobi. I have the Figuarts for both of them. I seem to particularly like these purple and silver armors!

Found the Blue Ninjetti at Target. I checked the scanner and it came up $30. Didn't bother to look through them at that price.

That's odd. The app says they're $25. I wonder if the store will match the app/online price. Pink and white were $25.

*edit* This, to me, says they'll price match the online price. But who knows.

Target will match it. This is often a trend in Hawaii where we need to match the prices seen online, as we have higher prices. Generally the cashiers can do the override pretty easily.

Didn't want the Ninja MMPR outfits, but y'all have made me want them. :) Kim was in stock a few nights ago so I grabbed one, but at this point I wonder if it wouldn't be much easier and way less frustrating to just buy a full set off someone down the road. That way I could check paint before dealing with endless purchases and returns.

But I think the headsculpts on these are really good, including the best version of Kat, who now has FOUR likenesses. Is she the longest-running female Ranger? That seems fair, then. :)

I think Kim beats her by episode count. But she is definitely second.

Got Ninja Ranger Black and Blue from Target today, they pulled them from the back for me.

They did Billy so dirty, why are they painting the eyebrows so thick and janky?

My Adam has perfect paint, but his karate chop hand is fused and there is a major gap on his thigh cut on the left leg.

I noticed some Tommy's have a small issue with the left leg as well. Both the ones I got were loose and there does look like a small gap on some I saw.

How did you get them to pull from the back? The app still says preorder so it won't let me look for store inventory. Did you just ask if they had them by the dcpi and/or app/website page? I'm going on Wednesday and I'm hoping they have some, would be nice if I have a heads up before I try.

Got Dino Fury Red Ranger. Love the costume design for this suit, especially the knight-like helmet. Usual excellent poseability. I’m in for any more characters from this series if they have this aesthetic.

Would be very cool to get Void Knight. Love the look of his armor:

You'll be happy to know that Dino Fury Green is rumored to be on the way in LC.

Void Knight has a basic figure. Scales marginally well with LC. Not as much articulation obviously. I bought it simply because I don't know if they'll ever release him in LC. I feel buying the basic figure villains is probably a safe bet.

Hoping for a Void Queen figure down the line.

Nice!

So the basic Void Knight is decent scale with Lightning Collection figures?

The basics line is the same scale as LC iirc. So most of them fit in if you really want certain characters. The Hengeman, Dino Fury's grunt soldiers, just got released and should make good army builders for LC DF Red.

On another note, if anyone is going for Ninjetti Blue and Black, be careful with Black. A friend got two of them, each from a different Target, and they both had this bizarre assembly issue where the right foot was just straight-up glued to the ankle and wasn't fully assembled. When he accidentally broke the first one's foot off he found the peg on the ankle joint that connects to the foot was just completely nonexistent and the foot wasn't actually connected to anything.
