But once I saw it I bought it immediately. A translucent vinyl figure with sparkles in it?! I don't care what toy line this is for, I want it and I want it now.
"Now" actually took about two weeks because it was coming from China, but I got him and he's proudly displayed on our mantle now, wondering why he's in our house as there's like barely ANY Power Ranger figures for him to hang out with.
Seriously though, we grab villain figures when we think they're cool and the new Dino-Charge line or whatever is FULL of cool villain figures so this guy has a lot on his plate if he wants to keep our living room safe from danger.
We also have the 12" captain doggy dude from the SPD series. I guess I really appreciate Power Rangers toys for putting out stuff that is accessible even if you're not a fan of the show or current storyline. It's also nice to be able to avoid trying to take home a mint-in-box Saba or Dragonzord when they come in the shop since I have zero attachment to the brand from a nostalgia standpoint.
Oh, and I really like the Putty figures from most of all the various Power Ranger series. Sorry for a weird rambly review, but I'm bored and these photos have been on my phone for over a year now so I thought I should do something with them before deleting them.
I guess I should give you some info on the figure... This is a Sentai Hero Operation Overdrive Red Ranger. He's about 5.5" tall, articulated in the neck and shoulders only and has a gun that fits in his hands or on the holder connected to his belt. He came in a two-piece box which is surprising since a lot of the figures this style and size usually just come with a tag.
