I'm glad the wave has none of the goofy ass smiling portraits.

PREACH.

Good news is that Kimberly has got to have a second portrait coming at some point. Maybe Kat too (although she probably has the only decent smiling portrait in the line).

Apparently Monsters Wave 1 are major pegwarmers. Hopefully that leads to some changes with the future releases planned.

The Sphinx figure looks so lame, given it's pricepoint.

I'd love if Rita is released as a single in the next wave.

Yeah, it's the pricepoint that's hurting them. For that price there's no excuse for the missing paint apps.

Plus King Sphynx towering over Goldar probably isn't helping either.

Pegwarming where? I don't see them anywhere I go, and I hit 3 different gamestops, 3 different walmarts, and 2 targets in my travels. I see a bunch of the 2 packs with the special packaging at target. The rest is all single card Ethan and syd. It's funny I don't even see Leo. I'm not saying you're lying by any means, I just don't see that here.

Toku Topics said they are pegwarming in the Saturday video. And that guy is like the #1 PRLC-obsessed collector online.

Speaking of which, he just released another news video;

More listings leaked out. A-Squad Pink and Green are coming too.

Monsters Wave 2 and 3 have been removed from the list.

TMNT Packs release details.

Woke up on a PR kick today. Not a huge collector(just the MMPR stuff really) but I've been diving in to some other avenues. In Space has me intrigued(Astronema is the one of the coolest names ever) and the SPD Omega Ranger with cycle looks amazing. Need to play some serious catch up. Made a checklist this morning and away we go...go...Power Rangers!

Awesome to hear that you’d like to dive in a bit more into the PR world! There’s a ton of awesome teams and cool villains. I feel the biggest issue that prevents people from exploring more is the amount of characters...but it’s fun to explore! It’s one of the things I enjoy most about Power Rangers (along with the designs).

Anyway, if you need a resource for release or announced Lightning Collection figures, look no further than Grnrngr.com. He’s the #1 PR toy resource. Here’s a link to the Lightning Collection section:

In terms of keeping up with news about the live, the aforementioned PR Collection Info will keep you up-to-date. His YouTube channel is Toku Topics. Josh does a wonderful job keeping all the Hasbro news and rumors in one place.

Yea the monster 2 packs are still sitting at my Target. I think there's still 2 each there. Also the Andros and Astronema 2 pack has been chilling at my Target for months now. That and the the B squad 2 pack. Honestly shocked they haven't gone on clearance yet.

Maybe Fwoosh should do a Top 3 Monster poll. Still present the results like a Top 10. But individual votes are more about what you'd absolutely buy right now, rather than balancing a list or even finding ten monsters you think look interesting enough to maybe think about buying.

Or they could just try and keep it more towards main monster villains like Ecliptor. Bigger figures that need the bigger box and budget but appeared in more then 1 episode. And actually paint them proper. The sculpts are there, and really nice for the monsters we got. They just needed more paint.

Yeah I'd personally much rather have characters like...

Scorpina
Rito Revolto
Master Vile
The Machine Empire
Divatox and her minions (Elgar, Porto, etc.)
Ecliptor
Darkonda
etc.

...over the monsters of the week.
