Seibertron Power Rangers / Super Sentai Toys Discussion Thread

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

I feel dumb for not being able to tell from the pic above but this lion fortress is a mega oversized version of the Japanese Lion Ha Oh.

Here is the US version (torso only) next to the fully assembled Japanese version (on the left)

Image

The **** were they thinking?!

it was a big toy before but now this thing is HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE

Look how small the megazord is in it:

Image

Compared to the japanese version

Image

(and yes the US and Japanese version of the 5 member megazord is more or less the same size).

It really looks like an OS KO figure we see in transformers, especially since it has less colour variation (because the amount of paint to match the colours would just make the price increase even more).

I am very dissapointed, I have no space for this giant hunk. The only consolation is that the japanese version can have the US megazord in it, so that is always an option to those who have less space (or dont want to dedicate this much space).

Me thinks Bandai of America has taken the interactivity with the 6" figures a step too far. I don't mind it for the main Megazords (hell, I may get the Armored Zord Figures), but for the Lion Fortress... I predicted the play set thing correctly, I just never anticipated he'd be mahoosive!

And another thing they missed the mark: apparently all 3 Auxiliary Zords (Tusk, UFO, Surfer) will be sold only as Megazord recolors with the Robo Zord/Shinobimaru switched out. Ugh, hopefully Toys 'R Us will request a gift set with all 3, with a bonus Dino Zord/Dinomaru.

Yeah I am really baffled at their marketing decisions this go-round. Instead of sticking the extra zords in the $20 zord class, they make them $35 redeco megazords, and stick some lame cannon in the $20 zord class that's not in the show, doesn't look good, and nobody is buying. The only upside is that you can buy the 5" figures of the zords and sit them in the megazord cockpit and the only thing you don't have is the proper face.

Gonna be honest, I never liked Akaninger sitting in the cockpit of Lion Ha-oh. In battle scenes he would appear hilariously out of scale.
not to scale.png


The toy at least glossed over it by giving a feasibly small akaninger to sit in the mouth but here they want you to put an entire 5" figure there? Oh lordy lordy lordy. I'd be cool if this wasn't the one meant to combine with the main megazord and just a secondary playset like we've gotten before, but it is the only representation of the Lion Fortress in this line and it's just way too big.

It's really odd considering that Nininger/Ninja Steel has the same amount of auxiliary mecha as Kyoryuger/Dino Charge. It's really a missed opportunity to have some cool original zords (and maybe make a Tridoron one too). It didn't seem like not having a zord in the show affected the sales of them, the extra auxiliary zords in Dino Charge were super hard to find.

I think it's more like to pad out the Deluxe Megazord assortment. Dino Charge/Kyoryuger had 4 Megazords total:

- Dino Charge Megazord / Kyoryuzin
- Ptera Charge Megazord / Pteraiden-oh
- Plesio Charge Megazord / Plezu-Oh
- Titano Charge Megazord / Gigant Bragi-Oh

With two Limited Edition redecos brings the total up to 6. Ninninger also has 4, but Lion Ha-Oh relocated to its own assortment limits the number to 3:

- Ninja Steel Megazord / Shurikenjin
- Bison King
- Gekiatsu Daioh

The Auxiliary Zords will allow for 3 more entries (4 if they produce Dinomaru), making a more steady stream of new releases instead of old product lingering.

I like a big mech, but this is ridiculous. The japanese versions were quite in scale with each other, but this is far too big for the megazord to sit in.

The original Lion-OH is stupidly huge and expensive. So much that I skipped on it despite having the Japanese Shurikenjin and Bison King.

But ah OVERSIZED (original? KO?) version is simply pushing the ridiculeness to the extreme!
...

Hmmm.... I wonder if they'll be crazy enough to make a oversize Transformers G1 Fortress Maximus to match the scate of the Generation/Classics line? :lol:

And all for the sake of it interacting with the 6" figures, and bypassing the size limits of the regular Megazord assortment.

but thats fun, I dont mind brick splitting and building. I am not buying that giant movie megazord, but I see why people could like it and the play value involved in it. But this is 1 brick. And its the size of Fort Max.

No, this is also a brick that separates into smaller bricks and reassembles into a different brick shape. The lion head comes off and becomes the robot chest, while the robot head comes from underneath the lion and mounts on the top. Not as complex as even Zyuoh King, but it's a little more than just standing up the lion.

I'm 100% not defending the scale of this toy but it has a function and it does it well. Maybe they'll release a smaller one next year or something, I don't think they're likely to get to the lion fortress before Super Ninja Steel anyway. It shows up mid-series in Ninninger, and if they do it like this they basically only have Gekiatsu Daioh to use next year, since the Ninja Steel and Bison megazords are this year, along with most of the otomonin.

Anyway here's a clip of Lion Ha-Oh and Shurikenjin Ha-Oh in the show to see what scale these SHOULD be at.

I believe he's referring to the recent Legacy line release of those figures.

Speaking of the Legacy line, i saw a mountain of black and gold Titanuses warming the shelf at one of my Toys R Uses a few days before Christmas. Still asking $150 for them. I laughed.

Ok, quite a shocker here, but Power Rangers will no longer be partners with Bandai of America after April 2019, as announced at New York Toy Fair:

Bandai of America Press Release wrote:After a successful 25-year partnership building the iconic action franchise, Power Rangers, Saban Brands and Bandai have mutually agreed not to renew their global Power Rangers master toy license agreement, effective April 2019. Bandai will continue to support Power Rangers, including the 2018 commemoration of the Power Rangers 25th anniversary and the current season, Super Ninja Steel. In addition, Bandai, through its partnership with Toei Company Ltd., will continue to exploit toy rights for the Super Sentai series, which has enjoyed over 40 years of success, in Japan and select other Asian territories.


Further more, there's a rumor that the US license has been picked up by none other than Hasbro :shock: To clarify, the Japanese Super Sentai toys will still be handled by Bandai proper, as stated above.
