The focus today will be on Lightning Collection though they are starting off with a trivia contest for pride not prizes.

Lightning Collection SPD A Squad - Red Ranger Charlie, Yellow Ranger, Green Ranger, Pink Ranger. Pink Ranger is a Gamestop exclusive and Green Ranger is Best Buy. The others are available at places like like our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com at 1pm ET.

Lighting Collection 2 Packs - In Space Blue Ranger Vs In Space Psycho Silver Ranger, MMPR Yellow Ranger Vs Scorpina. These will be available for pre-order everywhere starting at 1pm ET.

Andros is teased. Be released later in the year.

They teased a blaster which looks like might be from the Phantom Ranger.

Panel is over.

i love the classifieds too, they look awesome displayed but the best of classified doesnt beat the best of lightning collection. rita, ranger slayer, psycho rangers set, and drakkon are beyond awesome posed on display.

the 4 shared heads is amazon storm shadow, beachhead, firefly, and cobra trooper. its the exact same head. even cheaper than the paint issues you bring up. and equally as bad as trent missing the black on his helmet.

Well, we're getting into personal preference here. I love the LC Rita figure, I think they did a great job on her, and there are other real winners like Lord Zedd.Does the best Lightning Collection figure beat the best Classified figure? That's an opinion for you and everyone else. I just think overall the Classified line is better executed.

I can tell you for certain that the heads on those four Joes are NOT the same. Each one is an all new, unique sculpt. If you take a quick glance at them you might think it's reuse, they are all similar STYLE masks, but every one has its own unique details. It would actually have been a lot easier for Hasbro to just do the same head four times and color it differently, but I assure you they did not. That's an example of the kind of effort being put into those figures that I like a lot.

I'm talking strictly final product action figures. Distribution issues have noting to do with anything once something is sitting on my shelf and looking cool. I won't go too far into the other lines so as to not derail things, but I think the vast majority of the Joes released so far are just bonkers-----in a good way. (I'm also not sure what you mean by 4 of them sharing the same heads.)Some issues I have personally experienced with PR:The likenesses on the unmasked heads are roughly 50/50 hit and miss. For every really good head you get (Trini), you get one that is completely botched (Zack).

Coloring on some figures is off. Pink Ranger Kim has about three different shades of pink on her. Red Ranger Jason's torso is a different shade of red than his arms and legs.

Green Ranger Tommy is missing the white diamonds under his armor.

Pumpkin Rapper and King Sphinx have missing paint galore. (A lot of these figures they just plain decide not to paint.....very cheap).

Zeo Ranger Blue is missing his signature weapon, the rest of the Zeo Rangers released so far all have their signature weapons.

There is some good things going on with the line, but lots of hiccups.

all issues that every hasbro line suffers from. look at every star lord head ever. 1st sabine release. 1st white queen. list goes on andon. its not just power rangers thats hit and miss with unmasked head sculpts, its just the hasbro way. same thing with paint issues are nothing new either and have plagued hasbro since their jurassic world days. i love the classifieds too, they look awesome displayed but the best of classified doesnt beat the best of lightning collection. rita, ranger slayer, psycho rangers set, and drakkon are beyond awesome posed on display.

strongest in what regard though. cause you say gi joe and sales wise thats the weakest of hasbros lines. output, also the weakest. less than 20 figures released and 4 of them share the same head. that was barely okay in the 4 inch line, in the 6 inch line its a slap in the face. no way classified is stronger than lightning collection in any way.

i dont know what qc issues youre having with these figs that arent present in the other hasbro lines either. no differences between those 4 lines in that regard.

Yeah, calling this one of the strongest lines is a reach, IMO. Personally if I were to rank 6 inch Hasbro lines I'd put GI Joe first, Star Wars, Marvel, then PR. It's riddled with QC issues. All that said, it absolutely doesn't matter because people will keep buying the MMPR related stuff no matter what and keep it going on that alone.

No, it's definitely just you. Not every move they make is perfect, but I'd say this is one of the strongest lines being produced atm.

This is one of the strongest lines being produced right now??

really? that's a bold statement, stronger then Marvel Legends?, Star Wars Black Series?, NECA Turtles?, I guess the Ranger figure hunger is so real, you'd take Gummy Sandal Rangers and say wow! thanks Hasbro, you are knocking em out the park here, It's just my opinion but this line feels lost, and the people working on it seem even more lost, they cant even figure out their own boxes, SPD A-Squad yellow comes in a box that says In-space yellow ranger, White Dino ranger didn't even get any paint hits on his helmet, King sphinx looked half baked...black dino charge ranger the team forgot was even coming out and didnt even acknowledge it when it hit stores randomly. These guys are sleeping at the wheel.

man is it just me or does this line seem like it's on life support right now?

they seem to be struggling to figure out what to put out, and when it hits inless it's MMPR it pegwarms, all of the monsters and 2 packs are smoking the pegs everywhere, and they keep on revealing more and more boring uninspiring new product so it seems.

Maybe I'm wrong, and people are still happy with this line? , but it looks like a sad corpse of what could have been, but was handled poorly by what seems like people who hardly care about Power Rangers.

No, it's definitely just you. Not every move they make is perfect, but I'd say this is one of the strongest lines being produced atm.
