Power Rangers In Space – Black and Blue Rangers (Power Rangers Legacy 6.5 inch figures)

There was a long dry spell of no new Legacy Power Rangers in the stores. And then all of the sudden, The second half of Wave 3 (In Space), the entire Wave 4 (Zeo and Dino Thunder), and even the first part of Wave 5(Zeo and Dino Thunder continued), started to hit the stores. Mostly at Walgreens, but I have more recently seen them starting pop up at Target, though once again they are a little too late.

Today we are looking at the last two figures of In Space, Blue Ranger, T.J. and Black Ranger, Carlos. As with the majority of the figures in the Legacy line, the figures share the same body, with a new head. We get the same articulation over all of the figures. The articulation is pretty good overall. A few places that could be improved, like the neck and the hips, but they are pretty solid overall.
These guys come with their Blade Blaster and a holster.

The real exciting part is to be able to complete the Astro Megazord. It was a funny choice of figures, as the team did not use their vehicles to combine Astro Megazord. Their vehicles combined to form Mega Voyager.

It is fine with me, because the Astro Megazord is an outstanding figure. The details are the best of the released Zords so far, and it would be hard pressed to find one better in future waves.

Now we have three complete Zords. Astro Megazord joins Dino Megazord from Mighty Morphin’, and the first released Storm Megazord. These Zords are a lot of fun to play with.

I am happy to have another complete set of Rangers. It is very exciting to get complete teams of some of the older classic teams that we didn’t get the great articulation for earlier on.

These poor Rangers don’t have much work to do. They are Rangers without enemies… for now. Bandai has announced that the Psycho Rangers will be in Wave 7. I can’t wait. For one, it will give the Rangers someone to fight with. And two, the Psycho Rangers are going to look awesome! We haven’t seen actual pictures yet, but they were really cool in the show, so they have to be cool in toy form too.

Power Rangers Legacy 6.5 inch figures – In Space Pink Ranger (Wave 3 Continued)

I thought we would never get to see the other end of Wave 3. I had to go back and see when I posted about the first part of Wave 3. That was back in April. Now here it is in December. There have been some missteps along the way, most notably in the Power Ranger pegs for Legacy figures being filled with Mighty Morphin’ Pink and In Space Yellow Rangers. There are always complaints that girl figures don’t sell. Well, we didn’t see a bunch of Mighty Morphin’ Yellow hanging around, so it is only certain female figures I guess.

Well, I haven’t seen them in the wild, but the rest of wave 3 (In Space Blue, Black, and Pink) have started to hit the stores. I found this In Space Pink Ranger on Amazon for normal price. The Blue and Black are going for outrageous amounts. I will keep my eyes out. I am hearing that Walgreens is the place to go, so I will venture out to some in the next week.

Well, today we are taking a look at Cassie Chan. Cassie was the third Pink Ranger in the series after Kimberly and Katherine. Seems that she should have been names “Kassie” to keep up with the ‘k’ names, but oh well. She and Ashley were the only two characters to move from Turbo to In Space and retain their colors.

Cassie is her in all of her pink glory. I am a fan of the In Space outfits. They carried over a bit of yellow from Turbo, and it is reflected in their neck triangle.

First time watching the show, I wasn’t too fond of the color rectangles going across the chest. I did however get to like it later as it shows all of the team reflected in each outfit.

Cassie comes with her Blade Blaster and holster. I think the weapon is a bit out of proportion, a bit big for the figures. The colors are really well done on the weapons. I am impressed that we got silver, black, red AND gold represented on the little guns.

As with the rest of the figures, Cassie comes with a piece to build the Astro Megazord. She brings the right arm.

The team is coming together, slowly but surely. There have been announcements for the next few waves, including the Psycho Rangers, which also tie into In Space. That will mean there will be 12 figures all together for In Space including the Silver Ranger and the Astro Megazord. I doubt any other show will top that number, save for the Mighty Morphin’ team coming out a second time with metallic paint.

We will also be seeing Dino Thunder, Zeo, and Ninja Steel. It seems to me that they should have brought out Ninja Steel a bit earlier to coincide with the show, and hopefully bring some new fans to the 6.5 inch line. Oh well, I am not in charge. I will be sitting here waiting to find the figures as we move into 2018.
