Don't panic!

Actually, it's about $22. Or roughly the same amount it cost here in the States for the regular version. :)

Oh thank god

I thought you'd won it in an auction, and I felt that was too much.

Oh, "won"! Hahaha.. I didn't

Oh, "won"! Hahaha.. I didn't even think of that. No, that will always be the original price in that field, not necessarily what we actually paid. I just wrote "won" because we don't have any other currency symbols besides yen and dollars to chose from. If you must know, I paid $150 shipped from Korea for this, which I thought was not bad considering a) how hard it is to get one of these and b) how big the shipping box was.

Swapped arms

Y'know, I honestly didn't even notice that. But I've got the thing on my desk and they are correct now so I must've fixed it when I attempted to transform it. Now I almost feel like I should review the Japanese version just so that for once I can (hopefully) have everything right, even though it arrived to me wrong, in this case. But I honestly have no intention of removing it from the box. Although technically, the Japanese box says "Unifive", in addition to Bandai. So should I do it just to catalog it properly?! Maybe wait for a really, really, really, really slow day and use the Bandai one instead. Shhh!..no one will know.. :)

Given there are Japanese

Given there are Japanese versions of the true Power Ranger jumbos (just different boxes, as far as I can tell), I guess I'm not surprised there are multiple versions of this. Admittedly, I wouldn't have known there was a Korean version, though. Not sure if you're aware, but there is a Canadian version also, with a different box. I don't own it so not sure if there are any physical differences from the American version, though I would doubt it.

It's kind of odd this toy exists at all in any form. It seems to have been thrown out there on it's own with no other toys in it's category. It doesn't fit with the other Power Ranger jumbos because of it's size and transforming. And there is a slightly smaller version of this toy made of more common plastic material that fits in better with other Power Rangers and has a more traditional transformation like other transforming toys. But, that being said, it's close enough to a jumbo (and cheap) that I had to get one. Well, at least the American version. Don't have a whole lot of interest in the other versions unless I just happen to run across them.

I've never seen a Canadian

I've never seen a Canadian version. Is it in French or something?

Also, there are no Japanese versions of the Power Ranger jumbos, unless you mean the Jumbo Hero Gourai Senpuujin, but that's a completely different toy.

Actually, there was a guy

Actually, there was a guy selling a Power Ranger jumbo in a Japanese box. He had photos of it and the box was clearly different than the American version. I almost purchased it, along with a couple other jumbos I bought from him, but it seemed to be the same as the American version other than the box, so I couldn't see spending the $150 or so he wanted for it. I'm not sure if that is the only Power Ranger jumbo that comes in a Japanese box or if all of them did. It was the one with the big yellow circular chest (not sure of it's name, off the top of my head). I naturally assumed there must be Japanese boxes for all off them.

As for the Canadian version of the Astro Megazord, I could be mistaken since the picture was small that I saw, but it may have been a picture of the back of the box which I mistook for a Canadian version. I'll have to go dig up my Astro Megazord to double check. If it was the front of the box, it's a completely different box.

Yeah, that's a jumbo vinyl.

Yeah, that's a jumbo vinyl. I think it's 20-21" tall (to 22" for the US Jumbo) and obviously a different material and sculpt. That piece, like the Jumbo Astro Megazord, is also a strange one-shot release. I think JoshB used to have one, but I didn't see a review of it in our archives.
