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.
