Got my Dragonzord Coin from starlight.studio today! I have also received the core 5 coins too but there was a problem that starlight.studio are being very helpful in helping to remedy. I will post pics of those once we’ve sorted it out.

I have to say, these coins are beautiful. They really make my morphers shine and I think they look better than the bandai originals. Apparently, this Dragonzord Coin is not a re cast of a Dragon Buckler Coin but is starlight.studio’s own original sculpt and it’s so close, I would never have known if he hadn’t told me.

Also, starlight tells me he is working on Ninjetti Coins! He estimates that they will be available in time for Power Morphicon! Can’t wait to see them!

Sorry I have not posted any updates to my collection thread, the accountant at work messed up my paycheck every month since December. Had to wait till end of March to be paid and, as you can imagine, I was not impressed.

Anyway, I forgot to post pictures of my new display shelves. I got them in January and not all of my stuff will fit on them so much of my collection is still in storage. I’m still decorating my room and there’s more shelves on the way. For now, I just have my mecha on display but hopefully I’ll be able to display almost all of it once my room is finished.

I’m also much closer to completing my morpher display project. I’ve ordered the rest of the reprolabels I need and a full set of starlight.studio metal coins for good measure.

Just received the first coin today, Jess’s tigerzord coin (purchased from PowerProps on Ebay). The pics really don’t do this justice, they are so nice and shiny that its hard to get a good clear pic. The coins are awesome in metal and I really like her interpretation on the tigerzord emblem. Similar to the emblem on the toy saba sword.

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 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:
