Received my new Green Ranger Communicator from starlight.studio on Ebay today.

Here it is with the white one I got last month.

Sadly, when the communicator arrived, it was broken into 2 pieces :(. There is also a minor paint scratch on one of the green strips. I’ve emailed starlight.studio but I think this was probably the work of UK customs as the packaging looked like it had been opened. But as you can see above, I fixed it anyway.

Communicator was broken into two pieces when it arrived. Damn UK Customs!

Don’t let this put you off ordering from starlight.studio though, I’ve always received good service from him in the past and my White Communicator was perfect last month. I’m pretty sure this is not his fault and that UK customs are to blame but I’ve emailed him anyway. He makes fantastic quality stuff and is a very reliable seller. Highly recommended!

One step closer to owning all 7 colours. Just the core 5 to get now. I’ve thought of a really cool way of displaying them too. As I’m re decorating my room at the mo, I’m going to put 7 nails in a line on my wall and hang the 7 communicators on them. Will look sick with my custom morpher display I’m working on.

Received my Dyno Buckler Holster this morning. I’ve been after one of these loose for a while now.

For those who haven’t already seen this post, I’m slowly working through customizing my 6 Power Morphers into show accurate versions. Here’s my newly customized American morpher in my new holster.

Here’s the back (with stickers from reprolabels)

Haven’t yet customised this morpher (reprolabels on the way) but it is good for illustrating BoA’s infamous stupidity in the flipping of the morpher.
Have yet to customise this morpher, as you can see Bandai America made them the wrong way round!

One last drool pic. I’m so pleased with how my morpher turned out (In case you hadn’t noticed lol).

Got my new gold morpher plates from Jess (PowerProps on Ebay). They are replacement recasts painted gold for those of us who are not skilled enough to attempt to repaint them ourselves. Jess’s paint job is way better than I could ever hope to achieve. Bless her, she also sent me a free falconzord coin!

Here’s Jess’s coin next to the one I recently recieved from Argus. Jess’s coin is on the left and Argus’s on the right. Keep in mind that Jess’s coin is an original sculpt. I think they are both awesome! Hail to the prop makers!

Here’s my old original morpher (before). It has new bolts and zyu back stickers but I was waiting for the gold plates before I added the show accurate stickers.

The new plates simply screw on just like the old ones. Man, the morpher looks wierd without the plates!

One complete gold morpher!

Ready to apply the rest of the reprolabels I bought.

Morpher complete! The best part is that I have not damaged my original childhood morpher to make this and I can return it to its old look whenever I want by swapping the plates back. It feels damn wierd morphing the other way round though lol!

And finally with my new white communicator 🙂

Sadly I’m re decorating my room this weekend so I can’t take another group shot with the gold morpher as the others are packed away :(. I’ll post one next week.

Now to get me some more reproplabels and finish the rest! Its gonna cost $120 to get the remaining stickers I need. $120 on stickers :o. Gonna get them a few at a time. Stay tuned!

Got my Ninja Coins from Argus this morning and I’m very pleased with them. They really didn’t take long to get here at all. Only tool 4 days to get to me in the UK since he confirmed that they had been shipped :).

The coins themselves are beautiful. I’ve wanted to own the falcon coin for years but decided I would get a full set as Argus is not sure if he wishes to continue. Some of them are a slightly tight fit in the morpher (compared to bandai coins) but I actually prefere the more secure fit.

Been looking forward to doing this, all six season 3 morphers! (Still waiting on my gold morpher plates from Jess before I fully customize the morphers / stickers).

Here is all the coins I own. Ninja Coins are by Argus and dragon / tigerzord coins are by Buzzs_Room. I also have 6 sets of the original 5 morpher coins. Next I want to get a dragon buckler coin cast.

Finally, I customized my communicator a bit. I put some balled up tissue paper behind the green felt so that it is pressed against the mesh. Thanks to Red-Space-Ranger on RangerBoard.com for showing me how to open the communicator and for giving me the idea to do this. I think it looks much better.

Just got my communicator from starlight.studio on Ebay :). Its awesome. Not exactly show accurate but certainly worth the money. It looks gorgeous and is very well made.

Here’s some pics. Excuse my pale complexion lol

But here’s what I’m most pleased with. I’ve heard of a lot of people customizing these communicators with more accurate green mesh for the speaker part. As far as I was aware, the starlight.studio communicator came with a shiny metal mesh part.

I’m not sure if this is a recent addition to starlight.studio’s communicators but my one has some green felt underneath the speaker grill. I almost didn’t notice it until I took pics. Here’s a more detailed pic of the green felt inside:
