We reached out to Bandai America to get a couple more clarifications or questions answered for everyone after our initial trip through the showroom. The questions (and answers) are below!
What do the new Legacy figures come with?
With the main core of the teams, it will be a Build-a-Figure type of system where each figure will come with a different piece to build a bigger figure. For the first assortment, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers figures will come with pieces to build a Megazord figure. Whether or not they will come with individual weapons has not been finalized yet. Sixth Rangers, such as the Mighty Morphin Green Ranger figure, will come with accessories instead of a “Build-a-Figure” piece.
What is the exact size of these new Legacy figures?
The Power Rangers themselves will be 6.5″ in scale, and the figure they create will be 7.5″ in scale. They will retail for roughly $20.
The fans still want to know – are we going to get a Poisandra figure?
There is no update for a Poisandra (or Keeper) figure at this time.
At New York Comic Con it was stated that Bandai America was working to get the remaining Ranger Keys released. Nothing is displayed at Toy Fair. What is the status of those remaining keys – are they coming out, or are they cancelled?
The product manager who is in charge of Ranger Keys did not make the trip to Toy Fair so unfortunately their final status is unknown as of this posting. If we get the answer later on we will be sure to update.
If we get any more updates, we will post them up for everyone. We did ask about a possible Talon Ranger figure, but that question was skipped by Bandai America.
We'll be posting news here as it happens! Keep your eyes here for information and later on pics!

Legacy figures of every ranger sounds really interesting. I can't wait for that.
"Every Ranger ever" is a tall, TALL promise. What happens if sales for the line bottom out & things get canceled?
Any word on whether these rangers are nicely proportioned or is it the same old song and dance?
Electric Turahk says
"Every ranger ever" does sound both promising and a little ambitious. But definitely cool. Looking forward to seeing them.
Yay Ninja Megazord!
I'm also interested in the legacy figures, but eh. I know they love their beefcake proportions too much to not use it.
After all, boys only buy action figures of beefy men and girls with Power Girl proportions
