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.

Storm Megazord – Power Rangers Legacy 6.5 inch line – Build a Figure

With the new Power Rangers Legacy 6.5 inch line, you get a BAF part. The three parts of the Ninja Storm Rangers combine to create the Storm Megazord.

This guy is great looking. He is a bit taller than the Power Rangers, but they are definitely in a size category of their own. They do not fit in with the full size Zords, nor do they fit in with the posable Zords we saw from Megaforce.

What they will have going for them is quite a few of the figures when all is said and done. So far we have Storm Megazord. We will also have Dino Megazord from MMPR, since Red Ranger comes with the torso. It will be interesting to see how they package the rest of the teams. With the Ninja Storm Rangers it was easy, since there were three Rangers. One came with the torso, while the other two came with an arm and a leg each. Guess with a team of 5, each will get a single part.

Over the course of the next year, it looks like we will be getting:

Ninja Storm
Mighty Morphin’
In Space
Zeo
plus 4 mystery characters

It is a bit of a funny order, since they started with Ninja Storm (I think due to a 3-member team, plus 2 MMPR), then we go with 3 MMPR, to continue that team, along with 2 In Space. We will finish with the last 2 MMPR and 3 In Space. After that we will move into two waves of Zeo with each wave being 3 Zeo + 2 mystery.

So between just a month or so ago, up until late fall 2017, we will get 25 figures + 3 Zords (listed so far). By then we should be knee deep in Power Rangers Movie stuff too (will we see the movie characters in this scale too?). Not to mention we will also be getting regular merchandise from Ninja Steel, on the TV side of things. Power Rangers fans have a LOT to look forward to in the next year.
