As mentioned in my previous Power Rangers R.P.M post, I managed to find the Power Rangers R.P.M. Full Throttle figures on ebay for a good price. Managed to finally find a cheap Gold Ranger figure, it was still slightly more expensive than the other Power Rangers R.P.M. figures I have though. I have now completed my Power Rangers R.P.M. figures collection as I won’t be bothering with the Dinosaur inspired figures in this toy line as they were not featured in the show.

My only complaint with this figure line is the angle of the male rangers heads, they are all looking down at the floor. This pose looks fine in the pre packaged poses but it looks like the males are looking at the floor in the poses I like to use in my display. The female rangers have ball joints in their necks and it would have made these figures look much better in my display if the male rangers shared this feature. Finally completed another season’s figures though, not sure which season I will try to complete next as it depends on the price of the figures.

As mentioned in my previous Power Rangers R.P.M post, I managed to find the Power Rangers R.P.M. Full Throttle figures on ebay for a reasonable price. I received my Green Shark Ranger today and I just need to find the Gold Ranger now as I won’t be bothering with the Dinosaur inspired figures in this toy line as they were not featured in the show.

Now I own a few more of the male ranger figures from this line, I still stand by the comments I made in my first R.P.M. post about the strange angle on their heads / necks. All of the male rangers appear to be looking down at the floor which looks fine in the poses they have whilst in their packaging but quite odd in my display with figures from other seasons. The female ranger figures have a slight ball joint to the neck and it would have been much better if they included this feature on the male figures too.

Apologies for the recent hiatus on this blog. As mentioned in my previous Power Rangers R.P.M post, I’ve not been able to add much to my collection over the last two years due to various financial commitments and space issues.

Found some great prices on ebay for the newest additions to my Power rangers R.P.M Full Throttle Figures collection and I received the first two today the Black Wolf & Blue Lion Rangers. I have the Green Shark Ranger on it’s way too but I have yet to find a reasonable price for the Gold Ranger figure to complete my collection.

Having already bought the Red Time Force Ranger a few years ago, I was beginning to doubt that I would ever find the other figures from this toy line at a decent price. But, in the last month, I have managed to add the Blue, Green and now finally the Quantum Ranger to my collection.

I was also pleased to find that the last three Power Rangers Time Force figures I have bought all still have working lights / batteries. Many of the the toys that come in “try me” style packaging tend to have little to no battery power left, especially older toys such as these.

Just need to find the girls now!

As you may have noticed, I’ve been on a bit of a figures kick lately and have managed to fill in many blanks in my Power Rangers figures collection. As mentioned before, I stopped collecting during the Power Rangers Turbo era but picked up the habit again during Power Rangers Dino Thunder. Unfortunately, this hiatus means I have some rather expensive gaps in my collection.

This month has been great for finding good deals on ebay on some of the older figures I’m missing as well as some of the newer figures too. I received my Power Rangers Wild Force Red Ranger figure today. I’ve noticed that Wild Force is the one season that I own the least items from (aside from my Growl Phone) and have also managed to find the Black and Yellow Wild Force Rangers. Sadly the Wild Force figures seem to be quite rare on eBay and are often more expensive than a lot of the Time Force figures, which is strange as Time Force is the older season.

Sadly the packaging was quite damaged for this figure but the seller mentioned this in the auction and, though I insist on only collecting MISB toys, I usually remove them from the packaging for display anyway. The figure itself comes with some great accessories that are painted for a change! But the paint job on the figure itself is not the best. You can see in the last picture (see below) that the his left glove has some paint missing. Also, as this figure line’s gimmick is the dual action feature, his legs are not posable which makes standing him up in my display a little difficult. I MUST invest in some figure stands!

I was lucky enough to find another Power Rangers Time Force figure on eBay at a very cheap price to add to the Blue and Red Ranger figures I already have. Was not sure if I would ever get close to completing the Power Rangers Time Force team when I bought the Red Ranger a few years ago as they are either scarce or expensive. But this month I have managed to find the Blue, Green and Quantum Rangers MOC on eBay at some pretty good prices considering their age. Just need to find the girls now!

I was also very pleased to find that the batteries / light up feature was still working on both the Blue and the Green Ranger figures I have bought this month. Quantum ranger is on its way!

The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 2010 toy line has proven very difficult for me to complete. Not only because they were never released in the UK but also because they quickly became rare items on eBay. However, I have decided to persevere and try to complete these figures as they are perfect for display with my Power Morpher collection. I play to create a battle diorama on the top of my morpher display case once I have all the figures I want, using some Tamashii Stage Act. 4 stands I have.

Anyway here’s the Blue Ranger figure I received today. Managed to get a good price on this one but it seems the last 3 rangers are going to be expensive, especially the female rangers.

I’ve been behind on my morpher collection for some time so decided to fill in some of the blanks. I have not bought a morpher since Operation Overdrive!

This is the first Bandai of America Morpher that I have bought for some time as I usually spend the extra cash on the Japanese versions. But this morpher does not have a Japanese counterpart as the Solar Morpher used in Power Rangers Jungle Fury is an American creation and not the same as the Sentai Changer.

After reading Linear Ranger’s review of this toy, I was not expecting much. Most adult collectors have agreed that this morpher is for the kids only due to its small size. However, I cannot believe how bad the American released morpher toys have become. Firstly, this toy does not even look like the sunglasses used in the TV show but also the toy is very poor quality. The ear pieces are difficult to attach and the clip on plates for each ranger colour are very ill fitting, to the point that the button becomes difficult to press especially with the Red Ranger plate. The sound effects are ok but nothing special.

I kinda got what I expected here so I’m glad I found this morpher as cheap as I did. Thankfully, this Amercican morpher is a one off and I will be buying Japanese versions of the R.P.M morphers.

I’ve made a few recent additions to my Power Rangers figures collection last month and thought I would upload some updated photos of my figures.

Sadly, as I stopped collecting during Power Rangers Turbo but started up again from Power Rangers Dino Thunder, I have some large and expensive gaps in my collection to fill.

My next purchase is definitely going to be some sort of peg type stands for my figures as I hate it when my figures fall off the shelf as it is a long way from my shelves to the floor.
