Series 3 Legacy Ranger Build-A-Figure : Power Rangers In Space Pink, Blue & Black Ranger - Review
The packaging for the Power Rangers Legacy Figures has remained the same as previous waves. The front is a clear plastic allowing you to see the Ranger inside the packaging (allowing you to inspect them for factory damages), the back of the packaging shows what Megazord that specific Ranger helps you complete and on the lower part you can see the full set of Rangers that come in that wave. This wave (series 3) brings us Power Rangers : In Space Pink, Blue & Black as well as the remaining Mighty Morphin Rangers White & Yellow.
Once removed from the outer cardboard the Rangers are "securely" locked into a plastic packaging, I have securely in quotes because my In Space Black Ranger has his weapon and holster loose in the packaging and my In Space Blue Ranger had one of his arms not secured as well. The Pink Ranger was held into the packaging at the waist by a plastic tie which is easily cut away but Black & Blue did not have this added protection. Typically the male Rangers are held in at one wrist by the same plastic tie, this could be how my Blue Ranger freed his hand during shipping.
I am going to start this section by advising everyone reading that there are some defects in the Ranger Legacy Line that been showing up more and more. A good example of this is that the Pink In Space Ranger that I have has a loose neck so her head tends to lean forward very easily, this is not a big issue but others are reporting loose waists, hips and arm joints on various figures in this line. This is also something we saw in the Power Rangers Movie Legacy Rangers as well. Now don't go grabbing your pitchfork and torch just yet, these flaws tend to happen I would suggest trying to locate another of the figure you have an issue with and exchanging it or contacting Bandai America to see if they can assist you, I have provided a link to their customer service page below.
Aside from those inconsistent issues, the Rangers are easy to pose and look great when combined with the entire team. It is important to note that this is the 3 core team I have completed but possibly the 4th for some of my readers depending if you picked up the rest of the MMPR set as well. After this wave completes shipment we will have Mighty Morphin, Ninja Storm, Power Rangers Movie + Alpha 5 & In Space all completed leaving a few months before the next wave comes out which I believe is the Mighty Morphin Metallic Ranger set with their Power Weapons.
These 3 figures bring us the remaining parts to the Astro Megazord (Personally one of my favorite Megazords), Pink gives us an arm, Blue gives us the missing leg & Black gives us the other arm.
This set of Rangers looks amazing when standing together and as you can see there are many options for posing them in a group.
The Astro Megazord looks amazing and even though it is lacking a few details, the ones they made sure to add really give the figure a completed look. There are limited joints on the Megazord figures making posing a bit complicated but I found a position I liked him in fairly easily.
When compared to the existing Megazords we have been able to build so far, the Astro Megazord comes in at the mid height range and they all look awesome when standing next to each other.
As always the Power Rangers Legacy Figures do not disappoint, Bandai brings us just enough details to make the figures & Megazords look amazing without making the price point really high. These figures go above and beyond the regular 5" line and are definitely worth a purchase. The minor manufacturing defects can be annoying but are so rare that it should be easy to find a replacement Ranger if you come across one that is a bit looser than you would like.
The Power Rangers : In Space Ranger set gets :
4 OUT OF 5 PUNCHES!

Series 2 Legacy Ranger Build-A-Figure : Power Rangers In Space Red & Yellow Ranger - Review
The Power Rangers Legacy Build-A-Figure wave 2 sets have started hitting stores just in time for the holiday season. Wave 2 or series 2 according to the packaging consists of Power Ranger In Space Red & Yellow as well as Mighty Morphin Blue, Pink & Black. Each priced at $19.99 and none of them let us complete a new Megazord, we can expect to see the Mighty Morphin Yellow Ranger out in Series 3 with the White Ranger and the Pink, Blue & Black In Space Rangers. This will allow the completion of the Dino Megazord as well as the Astro Megazord from Power Rangers In Space.
PUNCH the "READ MORE" break below to learn more about the
Power Ranges In Space Figures.
The Legacy Red Ranger Helmet from Bandai is a first time product for the company showcasing a full cos-play Red Ranger helmet. This product is priced at $99.99 and is not a retailer exclusive. The product was originally scheduled for release in November but Toys R Us stores were selling the product as it arrived to them.
The Legacy Helmet packaging is actually not bad. The packaging features the Red Ranger on it, images of the helmet and a story of the Red Ranger as well as the origin which is similar to other Legacy Line packages. The helmet itself comes wrapped in tissue paper and then wrapped in plastic and then encased in a cardboard shell. This is good because even if the outside box is a bit damaged from shipping the product inside it most likely perfectly fine.
The Helmet & Stand
The Legacy Helmet does include a stand to display it which is a great idea. The stand has a plate on the front that says "Mighty Morphin Red Ranger" and it is done in a gold metallic paint. To me this was a great touch by Bandai and really gives the product a nice way to display it. The helmet itself is great, keep in mind this is a cos-play helmet for $99.99 and most actual cosplay helmets will cost you anywhere from $250.00 to $300.00 depending on the maker. Than being there are key differences in the Bandai version and any cosplay made helmet, the Legacy Helmet is done in a matte finish not a shiny finish (not really a big issue for me), the plastic is VERY thin in spots and the helmet itself has very little weight to it (again not a problem), the latches on the side are not actual latches but are a tension clip that can be a bit frustrating to lock back into place after the helmet is placed on your head, additionally, the Helmet comes apart at the seem so you have to make sure it is attached all the way around but this is done with just some light pushing. The helmet comes with a hairnet which I am assuming is to keep you from catching your hair in the seems when locking it into place and the inside contains a snap back style device to make the inside fit a larger or smaller head. Venting is a slight issue on the Legacy Helmet, the only vents are near the visor seeming and it does not do much for air, clearly you are not going to suffocate inside the Legacy Helmet but you will fog up the visor fairly quickly. So extra thoughts on this product, the pin striping is really good and you can easily see through the visor, it is not glasses friendly or at least I had an issue wearing my glasses inside it with my big head....
The Legacy Red Ranger Helmet is a great product and being the first time Bandai has tried their had at a full cos-play helmet it could have gone either way. I think they did an excellent job with this Legacy product, they kept the price down and in line with other Legacy items as well as gave us a very good cos-play item, the added details and gave a stand. If you plan on picking up any of the Power Rangers Legacy products for the holidays I definitely suggest adding the Legacy Red Ranger Helmet to that list. Additionally I do hope that they decide to release more of these helmets either in the form of full teams or even Red Rangers.
The Power Rangers Legacy Red Ranger Helmet gets

Power Rangers Legacy Figures (Build-A-Figure) : Mighty Morphin Red Ranger - Review
The Power Ranger Legacy Firgure (Build-A-Figure) products measure about 6.5" tall, have 20 points of articulation & come with parts to build the Megazord from their respective series. Wave one consists of MMPR Red, MMPR Green, Ninja Storm Red, Ninja Storm Blue & Ninja Storm Yellow. These figures are priced at $19.99 and have started hitting shelves this month in assortment packages. I picked up my Legacy Figures at a local Target that had them in the back room but not on the floor yet, give a Target Team Member this DPCI 087-06-4657 and they can find it for you. These figures have also started showing up on Amazon & at Toys R Us Stores. Bandai says we can expect to see all of the Ranger teams created including 6th rangers at about one wave per year, they have also stated that the 6th Rangers will not come with Zord pieces but instead come with a special 6th weapon or accessory. Below you can read my review of the Mighty Morphin Red Ranger Legacy Figure.
The packaging design used for the Power Rangers Legacy Figures are new when compared to Bandai's packaging format. They look similar to the packaging used on the DC Comics Icons packages, they sport the curved edge on one side and the words "Legacy Collection" with the Ranger color written below it on the plastic. The front shows the Ranger season at the bottom, that Rangers picture and the "Build A Megazord" image as well. The remaining front of the packaging is clear and shows the Ranger and the accessories they come with. The back of the package shows the current wave of Legacy Figures available and the Zord that can be built by purchasing all 3 of the current Ninja Storm team. The Rangers are held into their plastic casing by only a few plastic straps that are easily cut with a scissor additionally they are not attached at every joint and the weapons are taped into their holding spots. Check out some of the packaging photos below.
The only accessories that come with the Legacy Red Ranger are a folded Blade Blaster and the Dino Megazord Torso. It really bothers me that they chose not to give him his Power Sword or the Blade Blaster in Blaster or Blade modes. I know the SDCC 2016 Legacy Figure came with the metallic version of both the Power Sword and Dino Megazord sword so to not include something more for a weapon just seems odd. The lack of the extra weapons really limits how you can pose and display this Legacy Figure.
The 20 points of articulation that Bandai has given to the Power Rangers Legacy Figures really gives alot of options when trying to find the perfect pose for these figures. Even with the terrible weapon that Bandai has chosen to include, you can still get some decent poses out of this figure. The weapon slides into his hand with little effort and unlike the Green Ranger there is no shield to restrict movement.
Considering all of the options, I recommend that you pick up these figures or at least grab the Rangers from your favorite season. I personally will be picking up all of the Legacy Rangers that they release. The Legacy Red Ranger gets 4.5 out of 5 PUNCHES. I would have given him a 5 out of 5 if he came with an additional or better weapon.

Today the Bandai UK Facebook page showed off something we had not seen yet, a Legacy Communicator - Tommy Oliver Edition. The communicator is the same as the Legacy Communicator coming out in June but this is the one comes with White & Green bands and also has specific sounds directed right at Tommy. The Facebook page has this listed as a Toy R Us UK exclusive item due out in July 2016 but does not say if and when it will be available anywhere else. We reached out to Bandai UK and they responded saying that "We can't comment on the US plans on the UK." which is what we expected them to say but were hoping for something anyway. We sent a message to Bandai America and are waiting a response. It is safe to say that it will release at Toys R Us stores in the United States around the same time in July based on the previous Legacy Line patterns. Also they have to give us a Green & White banded communicator at some point right? Below we have posted the original Bandai UK Facebook Post with the video showing the Legacy Communicator in action. What do you think? PUNCH us a comment!

Today Bandai announced the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Legacy Red Ranger Helmet! This is a first for Bandai but hopefully not a last. This helmet is sized at a 1:1 scale wearable item designed for comfortable cosplay. There is no actual size listed on the helmet but it does come with a display stand and is priced at $99.99 on Amazon. This price point is significantly lower than the cosplay helmets found online today that can run you up to $450+ depending on design and maker. This release is set for November 2016 and there is only one photo available of it currently (Shown Below).

The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie Legacy Morphers are currently available for purchase at www.Toysrus.com. They are priced at $59.99 each and like previous Legacy Line pieces they are only available at Toys R Us. They currently come in Red, Blue & Pink and contain the 2 coins shown above. It is odd that these movie Morphers did not come with the Ninjetti Power Coin the same way the White Ranger Movie Morpher did and Bandai never gave a reason as to why. Below you will find a closer image of the Morphers as well as links directly to the Toys R Us purchase page. All you need to do is PUNCH the buttons below!

I want to start off by saying I did not plan on buying the Legacy Black & Gold Dragonzord for multiple reasons. The first reason being I already own the regular Legacy Dragonzord, the second reason being the price, this is a Toys R Us Only item and that means of course Toys R Us controls the pricing which is set to $79.99 I definitely suggest waiting until you have a coupon. The third reason is that this figure was not in the show, but once I saw it on the shelf at Toys R Us I impulse bought it and I am not disappointed. The Legacy Black & Gold Dragonzord does look really good and I am now kind of upset I never grabbed a Legacy Black & Gold Dino Megazord. Below you will find multiple pictures and various comparisons for height and size but this is NOT a review of the figure since it is just a repainted version of the previously released Legacy Dragonzord. Some things to know; the Legacy Black & Gold Dragonzord can combine with the regular and black and gold Legacy Dino Megazord and it is part of the Zord Builder collection meaning you can swap pieces from other sets onto it as well. Enjoy the photos and PUNCH us a comment to let us know what you think of the Legacy Black & Gold Dragonzord.
As mentioned above the Legacy Black & Gold Dragonzord is part of the Zord Builder Collection so I had some fun. Below you will find the Legacy Mega Samurai Dragonzord.

Today Bandai UK posted images of the Power Rangers Legacy Movie Morphers (Red, Blue & Pink) and packaging on their Facebook page. The Morphers currently do not have an exact release date but are still labeled as a Toys R Us exclusive in the United States with some websites getting a shared exclusive on the product. Fans can expect to start seeing these Morphers on store shelves in June 2016 with an expected retail price of $54.99 still no word on why they have not chosen to include the Ninja Power Coins like they did with the White Ranger Legacy Movie Morpher and Bandai has not given any info on when we can expect to see a Black & Yellow Legacy Movie Morpher hitting shelves.

Legacy Falconzord on Toysrus.com!
The Power Rangers Legacy Falconzord has FINALLY landed on www.Toysrus.com! Some West Coast stores have already seen deliveries of the Legacy Falconzord but if you are on the East Coast you most likely have been struggling to locate one. Not only is it currently showing "Out Of Stock" which is typical when they first post an exclusive item to their website but it also is showing a price drop to $59.99! This price point is definitely more inline with the expected price of a Legacy Line figure that is this size. If you find it in store make sure you bring up the Toys R Us App or Website on your phone and show the cashier so they will adjust the price for you since we have noticed most Toys R Us in-store pricing does not match the website. We spoke to a Toys R Us employee in store who said our region was expected 1,200 units and they should arrive with in 2 weeks! We are not sure how big our "Region" is but I hope every is able to obtain one of these Legacy figures.

www.Bigbadtoystore.com has started taking pre-orders on the Power Rangers Legacy Communicator! The Legacy Communicator like other products in the legacy line is made with die-cast metal parts and comes with changeable color bands for Black, Pink, Blue, Yellow & Red. This Legacy item is priced at $69.99 and set to release on July of 2016! There is no word on a Green & White banded Legacy Communicator but we think it is safe to bet that if this item sells well then we will be getting an addition Legacy Communicator down the line similar to how the Legacy Morphers were released. Are you going to get just one Legacy Communicator or plan on getting five like we do? PUNCH us a comment and let us know!
The Pink, Blue & Red Power Ranger Legacy Movie Morphers are still available for pre-order from www.Bigbadtoystore.com.

Courtesy of the Bandai UK Facebook page today we got a view of the Power Rangers Legacy Thunder Megazord next to the Legacy Tigerzord. This gave us a good idea of the combined height of the Thunder Megazord and they do look awesome in the picture. The Legacy Thunder Megazord stands at approximately 13" and the Legacy Tigerzord is approximately 10" tall this is the same height as the Legacy Dino Megazord. So this confirms that the Legacy Thunder Megazord is pretty tall and if I remember correctly it might be taller than the Legacy Mega Dragonzord or close to it.
They also provided some assembly shots of the process to build the Legacy Mega Tigerzord which you can find below. PUNCH us what you think in the comments!
