Yellow Ranger is scheduled to arrive Friday from Amazon with Blue and the Ranger Slayer coming next week.

I'm absolutely gutted about the Alpha-5/Zordon set being a Walmart exclusive. Also sucks that Rita is coming with another Zedd.

After next week I'll consider my collection of these complete. I was only really interested in MMPR characters. Now that the main team is complete I'm ok skipping the outside characters like Alpha and Rita since it's now a chore to obtain them. My initial reaction after seeing that Alpha was a WM deal was to just dump the lot of figures I already have but I'm just gonna keep the main MMPR team and call it a day.

Anybody need a extra red power ranger still in package? Got one for trade. Not sure of series but it came from a gamestop. Pm if interested. It needs a good home.

Yellow Ranger arrived a day early from Amazon. Now just need the Blue and the MMPR team is complete. I decided to pass on the Ranger Slayer and throw Drakkon up on eBay.

My Blue MMPR is scheduled to ship this week from Amazon, but I'm gonna be surprised if it actually does. Hasbro Pulse already pushed the date back on him and I gotta assume they know better than Amazon...

I recently received MMPR Blue, Zeo Gold and the Ranger Slayer from Amazon (spread out over three separate deliveries, despite being ordered together). I just started collecting this line in January, and here's what my shelf looks like now:

I ended up ordering Ranger Slayer despite initially cancelling and it's due to be here Wednesday.

Blue Ranger is due Saturday via Amazon. Now I just need to come up with a proper display for these figures. Goldar and Zedd wouldn't fit anywhere.

Well that's that. Unless I'm really motivated to get the proper Black Ranger I'm probably through with this line.

I’m sticking with MMPR and Zeo, with heroes and villains from those series. I’ll grab MMPR movie figures of course when they come out. But overall, I’m doing very few of these and enjoying it.

No one here jumped on the Zordon and Alpha set either? I want to, but at the same time, I think I'm probably done with this line.

I only collect MMPR so I have 2 each of everyone. Just waiting for a second yellow to come avaiable on BBTS. I need a proper Black Ranger and then I'm done. I did order Zordon and Alpha from Walmart and Gamestop actually told me my Rita and Zedd came in - they just can't sell it to me because of the street date.

I'm still holding out hope Rita gets a single release.

From what I read, they said yesterday that more MMPR is coming. I hope they mean monsters.

Question for those of you who collect carded. Are there any protectors you have purchased? Looking to protect my signed Pink and White Rangers but also looking for one big enough for the green ranger/putty set as I also have that one signed.

Thanks for any suggestions you can provide.

If you're talking about the Box figures, GW Acrylic is this is the only place I've seen hard cases offered. I don't know if they would work as I'm not familiar with the box size for this line.

My GameStop preorder of the Zedd & Rita 2-pack came in today. It also happened to coincide with the 20% off select toys sale going on, so I walked out there with it for only $40.

I received the Hascon Lord Drakkon Evo III figure today. I had to ditch the plastic cape and give him an old Vader cape. He's pretty cool but in no way worth the $50 I paid. I feel like most of the value of the package is tied up in the stupid massive green lightning effect that I just tossed in the parts bin.

I was close to buying this figure as it looked cool and interesting, but yeah at $50 no thanks. Shouldn't have been more that $30 IMO.

Is anyone getting the TMNT/Power Ranger crossover figures?

I ended up preordered each set so far. I've been reading every tmnt book IDW has produced, and the little I've read of Boom's PR stuff, I've liked.

I saw this today and though WTF, I thought Neca has TMNT License? So it took me by surprise and shock, and Shredder looks really good as does the Foot Soldier/Tommy. I just haven't been into TMNT since the Playmates days, never been into Power Rangers, and never really cared much for any of the reboots or to have 7" figures. Which seems to be the new norm. I might get Shredder just to have something unique but I can pass on the others.

It's weird though that the power Ranger stuff seems to be selling out quite well and very quickly, at least on Pulse. Either they aren't making that much, it's hugely popular or some people are even scalping these. lol

IT really does seem like after Neca got the license, playmates got really loose with it and then everyone started putting out turtles stuff.

After Mighty Morphin, I don't really know anything about other power ranger iterations, but I have a good friend who does and he's not a huge collector, but he usually ends up with a figure or two from every wave or every other wave.

Well it does seem as if Playmates does best if they're hands off, they certainly didn't do very well with Star Trek. At least after 94.

The I heard they are returning in 22 with a new lease on Star Trek and I'm genuinely curious to see how they run that into the ground. lol
I'm guessing it will be 6-7" just like everyone else is doing which would likely leave me out as a classic 3.75" collector, but if done right I might pick up a few of the TNG cast. If they even cover that era because I'm sure they'll focus mostly on DiscoTrek, and Strange New Worlds, which would now mean 3 versions of Spock!
