The new line of Power Ranger Legacy products are the Legacy Figures that 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. 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 Power Rangers Ninja Storm Legacy Figures, this main team of 3 gives us the ability to build a completed Megazord.
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 sports 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. Check out some of the packaging photos below.
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 and are not attacked at every joint and the weapons are taped into their holding spots.
Ninja Storm, Ranger Form!
Ninja Storm Megazord
The build a figure Ninja Storm Megazord does not disappoint. The Ninja Storm Megazord stands about 7" tall, pieces connect effortlessly to a ball joint system and they are pretty well detailed for a $19.99 item. The Ninja Storm Megazord has some joints, giving it minimal articulation and again no weapon included. Personally I would have liked to see more articulation in the Megazord, but I know that as a whole this is a step up from the usual 5" figures and the figure as a whole will look great when displayed.
Instead of my usual height comparison pictures I decided to compare Legacy Ninja Storm Blue to S.H. Figuarts Ninja Storm Blue. I felt that this gave a clear image on the size of the Legacy Figures as well as gave a detail comparison between the more expensive Figuarts and the Legacy Figure. Legacy Ninja Storm Blue is taller than her S.H. Figurarts counterpart and the blue used is a bit lighter but this is a more show accurate color than the Figuarts version. The main different here in detail is that the Figuarts version hides the joints better, came with the Power Weapons and had a bit more Morpher & sword details.
Considering all of the options, I would definitely 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. These Legacy Figures get 4.5 out of 5 PUNCHES. It would have been a 5 out of 5 if they had included those Power Weapons and the Megazord weapon.
