Early reviews of Power Rangers 2010 figures

This is a bit disappointing. With how great the figures look (except for the steroid bodies and big breasts), I would have prefer them to be the same height of the other figures. All other figures have been 5.5" and this is 4 inches. Almost the same height as the Kamen Rider Dragon Knight figures. I am disappointed but I will see it in person and see if I will buy it. I hope it is cheaper than the other figures.

Alpha 5 is almost as tall as the Rangers. And the RPM Ranger's height compared to Alpha 5, Alpha looks the appropriate height. Fans don't like Zordon right now, Zordon looks like Patrick Stewart (X-Men, Star Trek: The New Generation). It would have been great if there was blue-green ooze inside the Zordon cylinder. I don't think young fans would recognize Zordon. He reminds me of how he looked in the movie.

I do like the personal weapons and Blade Blasters and the gold wing items. They are great. I wasn't sure of the weapons being black but I guess they did them for them to stand out. I like how the female Rangers look. I also love the detail on the morphers. I also like how the Green Ranger has the shield straps.


Height wise, they did look the same height but if you look carefully, they are using forced perspective. The RPM Rangers are all lined-up but the MMPR Rangers are closer to the camera and Red's hand is up distracts. If you look at MMPR yellow and RPM Blue, you can see she is smaller.

These are the new Green Rangers. The small one from the new Mini Mix & Morph playset, the 2010 4" figure, and the Super Legends figure that came out a year ago.

UPDATE 11/6/09 5pm EST
Mark commented asking what will we have for Fall 2010 for the second round of figures, if new Rangers like the Spirit Rangers or RPM Dino Rangers; upgrades to the MMPR Rangers; Dairanger inspirations or Shinkenger? I think most likely we will get upgrades to the MMPR Rangers, because this is the MMPR line. Rangers like Spirit Rangers would be interesting--but the only one they could do is a Ranger based on Titanus. Maybe they will release the White Ranger. It would be cool if they release the Dairanger figures.

New Revelation:
A special Mighty Morphin Figure Pack from Wal-Mart, with Pink, Red, Blue, and Green figures (with less pose-ability) and a skinny Lord Zedd figure (not like the Super Legends one).

Wait a minute, in that video contest thing, they were the same height! THEY LIED TO US!!!

Or that's just a mini-figure.

Well, at least we'll get the Super Legends Pink Ranger.

Also, what do you think is going to happen for the second half of 2010? They can't release any sixth rangers as they've already released the Green Ranger and there are no canon power ups like in Jungle Fury.

New Rangers? Other Saban-era Rangers? Shinkenger? Useless upgrades? DAIRANGER?!?!?! Who knows how Bandai thinks. I still feel screwed out of another Digimon season.
