Chests in Female Power Ranger figures

Now that the pictures of the new 2010 MMPR figures are out, many are saying the male figures are 'under steroids' for their super muscle physique and the female figures having a large chest. I have already covered the male figures last week. The 2010 female figures are not the first to have ahem.. 'large chest.' I want to keep this blog family friendly. But this has happened in the past but it has been a slow process.

In 1993, the male and female figures were the same. They had no difference, they all had 'male' chests and no skirts. The Pink Turbo Ranger in 1997 did have a female chest but it wasn't too big. Pink and Yellow had no skirts. The Yellow Turbo Ranger looked strange but the re-issued Heroes figure had a more 'female' physique.

In 1998, the Pink and Yellow Rangers for Space and Lost Galaxy had round half-spheres for chests, they were rather big. I don't have a picture of the Yellow Galaxy Ranger.

The female figures remained with big chests well into SPD. Dino Thunder Yellow Ranger was a bit more normal and the Blue Wind Ranger's arm looked strange. None of them had skirts. The first female figures to have skirts was the Mystic Force Rangers and they were from Japan and had skirts attached to the legs and were molded. They had average chests.

The Operation Overdrive female Rangers had molded on skirts like the Mystic Force ones but were not from Japan. The Overdrive girls' busts were slightly bigger than the Mystic Force ones, I own them. Cheetah Ranger of Jungle Fury had a real skirt, for the first time, and she had a avergae chest. Camille 'Melle' of Jungle Fury's chest was just fine, but I do have to note that her Japanese counterpart on the show had eyeballs on her bust, to imitate the Chameleon's eyes but they were censored and removed for Jungle Fury and thus, also for the toy. Anyway, RPM Ranger Yellow and Ranger Silver both have skirts and modest breasts.

So, to wrap up, there have been around eight series to have female rangers to have large busts. And there has been two series with flat chests and five series with modest chests. But it can be debatable that the Pink and Yellow MMPR Rangers of 2010 have bigger busts, maybe they are more sloped than the others.

Idea! What if you cover all non-Japanese actors in Sentai? Romi Park is Korean and she's Dayu. Also I'm pretty sure there was a recurring African character in Megaranger.

And let me be the first to say that I am not complaining about the breast size.
