Deluxe Red Battlezord

This combo and MagiRanger are the only two megazords I own, and I love these two guys! Certainly the first toys on the shelf I'll let my son play with when he's old enough. Great review!

Bravo, Eva! I was waiting

Bravo, Eva!

I was waiting to see if you'd cover this guy. Power Rangers are a mystery to most older collectors, yet they really are the modern "quality" toy robot. Ah, but for space considerations.... Selling off my Megazords increasingly feels like shooting myself in the foot. Then again, sticking solely with the toys of your youth can be torture sometimes :)

Thank you. ^_^ Unlike most

Thank you. ^_^

Unlike most collectors who frequent this site, with the exception of jumbos and interactive vehicles [what else did I forget to mention?], Super Sentai mecha just take up a lot more shelf space proportionately. BUT, that's what I like about 'em- they're BIG and you don't have to squint to see most of the details. 12"-average height is just right for a kid-sized robot toy. It's the collectors who get it up the ass when they go for the same physical size for iconic robos like Gundam, Macross, etc. (EX: a Yamato ver-2 1/60 Super Valkyrie stands under 11" and costs over $130 because it specifically targets collectors and is most-definitely NOT a toy.)

that thing is just awesome.

that thing is just awesome. by the time i get around to ohranger with my sentai collection, it's probably going to be real hard to find red puncher.
i will be displaying it separately. i think it looks good enough on it's own

Truthfully, though getting

Truthfully, though getting the original Japanese version(s) would make my collection shift more towards Super Sentai releases and make it more 'valid', I'm not going to pursue them because the PR versions are so close/identical. Only in the spirit of having the originals would I pursue them.

To be fair, though, there are several of my PR Zords I would eventually like to replace with their Super Sentai counterparts, such as the Shogun Megazord (the Muteki Shougun is the Holy Grail for PR collectors), Ninja Falconzord, Serpentera, and Red Dragon Thunderzord.
