At NYCC 2016 Bandai had the Power Rangers Movie Red Ranger Legacy Figure available for purchase as an exclusive item to the Con. This was the first time any merchandise from the new Power Rangers Movie was sold. This figure was done in the same type of paint as the Legacy Mighty Morphin Red Ranger from SDCC 2016 and came with the Sword and Power Coin. Below I will break down the packaging and the product so you can get your first look at the Legacy Movie Red Ranger Figure! The Power Rangers Movie by Lionsgate is due to teleport into theaters on 03/24/2017.

The packaging used for this figure is similar to the other Legacy Figures that have been released except the Legacy Movie Red Ranger comes with a sleeve around the packaging stating it is a New York Comic-Con 2016 Exclusive and that it comes with the Power Coin, the sleeve also has the words "Legacy Collection Movie Red Ranger" in a metallic writing on it which looks awesome. The image of the Red Ranger on the sleeve is not colored and the lightening behind him has a red tint to it. Once the sleeve is removed the package is identical to the other Legacy Ranger Figures, the package has a clear plastic front so you can see the figure and accessories inside and the back of the packaging shows the current Wave 1 Legacy Rangers that are available.
The weapon that comes with the Legacy Movie Red Ranger figure is not really a match to the Red Ranger weapon we were shown right before NYCC. This weapon looks for energized possibly? With the clear blue around most of the blade. It does look cool, but it leaves the question of "Why is it blue colored?" I also had some trouble getting it to stay in the right position in his hand. You can see a close up of the accessory and the released movie image below.
The Power Coin accessory is very nice and detailed, when held to the light you can see the Tyrannosaurus image inside of it. It does not fit into the Legacy Morphers or Legacy Movie Morphers but does look nice when displayed with a light behind it.
The Legacy Movie Red Ranger figure does not disappoint, it has the 20 points of articulation that is found in the other Legacy Ranger Figures and he is easy to pose. The detail on the figure is fairly decent and the paint used on the center of the cheat really stands out in the light. The helmet looks great and is pretty accurate with the movie image as well.
These are the reason I have given the NYCC 2016 Legacy Movie Red Ranger from Bandai 5 out of 5 PUNCHES! The original price of this figure at the Con was $40.00 keep this in mind if you try to run out and buy one. Also remember that a Legacy Red Ranger Movie figure is going to be releasing closer to the movies launch on 3/24/2017.
