Why not buy those two on clearance and return two of your first purchases? I would totally do that, especially with money being a consideration.

Have yet to see that figure in stores, let alone on clearance.

I'm a bit surprised they hit clearance. They were gone within a week everywhere here. And they are a good figure, and an army builder. Sometimes you never know with stuff.

I recently returned my Tyrano sentry. I had him for a while but he just sat in his box on my floor, I never got around to opening him. I realized I had not yet opened him because I don't really care, so back to the store he went. He looks awesome, is a great army builder for those that are interested, but just not a necessity for me.

Currently the very, very few LC collection figures I have that are NOT MMPR related are on my list of "to-sell" figures. I have to keep this collection in check.

NICE. Got an email from Target saying Ninjetti Red, Yellow and Pink (Kat) have a release date of Oct 2.

Really looking forward to completing this set. Even if they end up on deep discount like the others before it, I think these figures look pretty sharp. And they've really packed in the accessories. Value for your dollar! Woo hoo!

I didn’t watch In Space so I do not remember this Megazord. Dang that is a great design. I’m getting Maveller/Leopardon vibes from that. That is very interesting. It’s design should allow Hasbro to make a very stable giant robot mode. I’ll have to go watch some video clips of it in action.

Thwipp!

Astro Megaship/zord is my favorite zord. Loved that the Rangers had their own spaceship like the Enterprise. I am dreading the price. ZAP Megazord is 166, ZAP Dragonzord is 132.

Got the re-release MMPR Red from Dorkside last week and once again the difference in color between his torso and limbs is very noticeable.

Honestly, how many pennies would it cost Hasbro to fix this problem and have their plastics match color?!

Yea those are gonna probably be all straight rereleases. I didn't expect them to fix anything. No new helmet, and no plastic alterations. No pinless tech. It kinda sucks. Idc about the pinless, but the plastic off shading is annoying.

I was looking at the five Pink Ninjas at Target and each package had at least one head with bad eyes. Lots of shifty eyes, except it wasn't done on purpose like McFarlane. I was going to go with the package that had the best unmasked head, but then I decided to hold off all together, for now. The last Pink Ninja was quickly clearanced after I bought two for full price.

I was interested in the PR Ninjas, but the quality control with the paint on those was atrocious from what I saw at Target. Just terrible that Hasbro was charging a premium for such a crappy product.

I found Ninja Kat today - she looks great! The best likeness to her so far.

They also had a Ninja Kim back who rang up at $30+. Is she reshipping with the Kat figure? Four Kats, one Kim.

Saw this Friday evening. Couldn't be more ecstatic!!! Astro Megazord is my all-time favorite! I thought I'd be waiting years for this. At least until they went through all the MMPR zords. So very, very happy. It's such a cool-looking Megazord that I think it'll appeal to casual collectors too.

I can't wait for Delta too!! :D

Found Ninja Kat. Most of them had the eyes printed slightly above the sculpt (like, most of the way on, but just a hair off on the bottom), which made it kinda look like she had bags under her eyes, which honestly didn't look terrible, as some people have them permanently & look like normal people, but I still definitely passed on those, lol.

One of the half-masked heads, the face was coming out of the mask. Steered clear of that one, too.

I had to settle for the second best face print, though, because the best had some plastic eff-up with the tip of her nose. C'est la vie.
