It’s the gimmick that just won’t ever fade away, Ranger Keys! Today we’re taking a look at just the latest set from Premium Bandai released in this 5 year old line of collectible trinkets. Today’s subject is the Ranger Key Set Metal Hero Edition!
This incredible new set seeks to fill out some long standing gaps in Ranger Key collection, following up on a Ranger Key set released 3 years ago to coincide with Super Hero Taisen Z. That set introduced 6 Metal Heroes into the line with Jiraya, Jiban, Draft Redder, Janperson, Blue Beet, & B-Fighter Kabuto. The Metal Hero Edition adds another 10 Metal Heroes to the line up with:
Gavan (Uchuu Keiji Gavan-1982)
Sharivan (Uchuu Keiji Sharivan-1983)
Shaider (Uchuu Keiji Shaider-1984)
Juspion (Kyoju Tokusou Juspion-1985)
Spielban (Jikuu Senshi Spielban-1986)
Metalder (Chojinki Metalder-1987)
Fire (Tokkei Winspector-1990)
Sol Braver (Tokkyu Shirei Solbrain-1991)
SWAT Sho (Blue SWAT-1994)
Gavan Type G (Uchuu Keiji Gavan The Movie-2012)
While that does indeed fill in most of the gaps for collectors, there’s still a few left that may irk some (mostly me). For now enjoy over 75 images of the Ranger Key Metal Hero Edition along with group shots comparing this set to the Ranger Key Complete Edition released for Super Hero Taisen Z.
