Perhaps, but I sure makes my inner-twelve-year-old happy. I try to aim for 5-6 of each mook-type. Roughly one per Ranger. The Putty Patrollers were easy to build up with that $30 Pulse 2-pack. Plus that 9 counts three I pumpkin headed. May have gone a bit overboard on Z-Putties, but their my favorite of all the PR foot-soldiers. I'm actually two shortdue to a spring cleaning mishap.

That pic comes from the twitter account below, Hasbro sent certain media product. Power Rangers podcast No Pink Spandex also received a Finster. This will probably be released before April, hopefully Dec.

I think that Hasbro put the dates out so far on many of the recent pre-orders due to how messed up shipping is right now world wide. It's why we are seeing so many things hitting randomly at various locations through out the world. I know that there's around a hundred or so cargo ships off the coast of California as of last week. Hopefully as they are getting the various issues with the shipping industry taken care of, it will lead to things coming out on a more "regular" basis.

Just picked up Zhane a few minutes ago at Gamestop.

The metallic Silver paint on it looks great.

First time I've purchased a figure before Hasbro formally announced it.

Which is the right move at this point. Delays suck and they're frustrating, but I'd much prefer the producers and their retail partners start getting very conservative with their estimates. It's far more annoying to do the BBTS method for most of their stuff where they just keep pushing stuff out by a month. Everything should just be dated with a quarter and when product actually leaves the factory then they can probably put a month on it to give people a head's up.

I decided to order the retro megazords with the intention of customizing them. I am sure super7 will do a megazord figure, but 16 bucks and some paint will work for now.

The final product of Finster looks great IMO. Frankly some of the best figures of this line are the non-rangers.

Finster really does look terrific. I hope they make a Mystic Mother. Always loved that design and full-circle Rita moment.

Here's the video review of Finster.

Great figure, up there with Tenga as the best LC of the year.

Articulated mouth.

Personally, I don't really want it, but for MMPR completionists.. it's a must.
