Power Rangers Samurai Toy Site shows the toys have the MMPR Actor FACES!



The Bandai America site has the Power Rangers Samurai section up now. The Switch Morphin toys (so far only Red and Blue have been seen) have the mega helmet and then the Ranger with the black face mask and you can see their eyes. The Blue Ranger has dark skin just like the actor. But the site has pictures of their heads in civilian mode and it is JASON, BILLY, and TOMMY! I am sure it is Tommy, because it looks like he has a ponytail in the back. The toys that are out, don't have these faces, maybe this was just a prototype. But I wonder what David Yost thinks about this, or the other actors, that their likenesses are being used after so many years. Maybe they made the mold of the heads for some MMPR 2010 project but when Saban spearheaded Samurai, they used the heads as a prototype. This is just a guess.

I'm still waiting for the rest of the Go-Onger toys to be sold here while the American companies sells what looks like cheap knock offs of the real ones. Just like the TV versions of the shows.

It's disappointing we didn't the Full Throttle Rangers from the RPM toyline in the actual show itself like we did with the Spirits Rangers. I thought it was a curious coincidence that they shared the same animal motif as the original Red, Black, and Blue Rangers. Maybe they could still appear in Samurai somehow (especially if they decided to make an RPM reunion episode).
