I believe the numbers

I believe the numbers are for the toy morpher from this show. It has a little keypad on it that they use to transform so that's probably for the kids to use and become their favorite Ranger.

Huh, these are actually

Huh, these are actually official and not knockoffs? I thought they had quit making the diecast figures with Ohranger.

In both the US and Japanese

In both the US and Japanese versions of the show, the code to transform for the 5 main characters was 335. I think the numbers on the package are just godaikin designations no? Or, do you mean the toy had an action feature different from the show that used the packaging numbers the way more recent morphers used cards and keys. And As far as I can tell yes, these were official releases, they have the Bandai logo.

Figure issues

Looking at the Chogokin figures for various series, it looks likely that the same body-and-limbs toolings were re-used multiple times. If that's the case, then it's entirely possible that by Megaranger some groups of toolings had suffered mold degredation.

The flaking and cracking of the chrome says nothing about whether they're official or not. Vacuum-metallizing, which is the cheap-and-easy way to do chrome like that, often ends up vulnerable to cracking and flaking (just ask anyone who owns Beast Wars Transmetal toys).
