“Blue Ranger! You’re mine!”
As the Space Rangers quest through the stars to save Zordon and bring peace to the galaxy, the newly brainwashed Astronema has finally found the key to their defeat. Drawing their power from the great Dark Specter, these malevolent machines are faster smarter stronger, and evil. First posing as the Power Rangers then attacking them relentlessly, the Psycho Rangers hide even more monstrous strength just below the surface. Each Psycho Ranger is programmed to ruthlessly hunt down the opposing Power Ranger of their color, and Psycho Blue will stop at nothing to find and defeat TJ, the Blue Space Ranger…..
Easily the most memorable and powerful team of evil rangers in franchise history, the Psycho Rangers have earned their place in the hearts of fans and collectors. So it’s no surprise that seeing this team shaping up in Hasbro’s Lighting Collection line has been received so well. Psycho Blue may be the first of the team to hit the line, but Psycho Red was also just released via a two-pack with the Lost Galaxy red Ranger as well. Psycho Blue is armed with his signature Psycho Axe and an energy absorbing hand just for ranger powers, Blue sets the bar high for the rest of the team in Hasbro’s line.
We’ve attached the full 50+ image gallery to this post but you can see it as well as read through our full review after the jump by clicking “Discuss on the TokuNation Forums” at the bottom of this post. With Psycho Blue out of the way, next time we’re travelling through space and time once more with w new Zi-O gallery; S.H. Figuarts Ride Striker!
We’ve all had those days where nothing seems to go right. When it comes to collecting in-demand S.H. Figuarts there is probably nobody who knows that more right now than Ranger Liz. For those not in the know, Ranger Liz is a growing YouTube personality that covers Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, Ultraman, and Power Rangers with weekly streams and near-daily updates.
Liz, like so many of us, had pre-ordered S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Kiva through her local GameStop store months ago after being unable to pre-order one from Japan (due to them selling out in a matter of two to three minutes). Her pre-order was secured and she was ready to go. Months went by and the figure was released – but Liz received no communication from her GameStop store. She reached out numerous times and was told her order was still pending. Finally, on August 18th, she went to the store and talked to the staff personally.
They had claimed they had tried to reach her repeatedly, leaving voicemails even, and due to a lack of communication from her, either sold it or sent it back to the warehouse. Naturally Liz was crushed. Overcome with emotion she shared a very heartfelt video to her followers about her sheer devastation regarding the one Kamen Rider figure she wanted more than any other and, after believing for so long that she had it secured, had it ripped away. To top it off – she was offered $5 store credit and nothing more for the inconvenience.
Enter Bluefin Brands.
Bluefin Brands is the distributor branch of Bandai in North America for Tamashii Nations product. They were pinged on Twitter regarding this story and, within a couple of hours, had reached out to Liz.
We’re happy to report that Ranger Liz will be receiving her S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Kiva after all courtesy of the incredibly generous and endearing folks at Bluefin Brands. They didn’t have to reach out to Liz nor did they have to turn her day around – but they did and that speaks volumes.
Please take a moment to check out an awesome product they’ve put together for tokusatsu fans – a Tokusatsu Blind Box which can contain product of Power Rangers, Super Sentai, Kamen Rider, and Ultraman. For $100 you will receive three S.H. Figuarts of the above-mentioned properties. On top of that some lucky fans will also receive, for free, the Soul of Chogokin Dragonzord. Click here to check it out and purchase.
Thanks for being an awesome company Bluefin!
The first store exclusive in Hasbro’s new Power Rangers Lightning Collection action figure series has been fully revealed!
Goldar, the iconic monstrous villain of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will be sold exclusively through GameStop!
Goldar’s price is a very modest $22.99 before shipping and handling. Release is currently scheduled for October 2019!
Hasbro’s new Lightning Collection figures have been generating much hype and excitement in the fandom as of late. And it seems like the hits just keep coming!
We’ve been getting numerous reports via social media that the big bad monkey himself: Goldar will be joining the line!
Lightning Collection Goldar is expected to release in the fall as Gamestop exclusives. No Pre-order link is available yet as of this writing, but we’ll sure to let you know the minute he goes live.
The S.H.Figuarts line’s been something of a fan favorite amongst collectors ever since the series first started. Many of us have been hoping that these figures will be easier to obtain domestically, and now it seems like collectors will finally have their chance. In a rather surprising turn of events, it seems that more S.H.Figuarts will be made available domestically for North American consumers at Gamestop of all places thanks to no part to our friends at BluFin. Among those are numerous Kamen Rider and Ultraman figures. Various listings appeared on Gamestop’s website the other night, as reported by various fans in the Toku community. The 20 Rider Kicks versions of the following Figuarts are up for pre-order as of this writing:
S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider Build Tank Rabbit
A screen grab from Gamestop’s own computers via Twitter user @ShadowThePika can confirm that these figures exist within the system and each one of these Figuarts will retail for reasonable 49.99 each and expected to ship out in February. Of course, we have no way of telling if Gamestop plans on carrying more of these in the future and it seems unlikely that they’ll carry anything P-Bandai exclusive. Still, this opens the floodgates for Kamen Rider collectibles to potentially come stateside!
Gamestop exists outside of North America as EB Games, and while the two companies operate under the same umbrella it’s currently not known they’ll follow suit. Stay tuned, and we at Tokunation will provide you an update to this exciting development as it’s made available.
Last month we received a teaser for a new Power Rangers Legacy figure exclusive to GameStop.
Now, after much speculation this new Legacy figure is at last available to order!
The figure in question is a Mighty Morphin Armored Red Ranger and includes the Dragon Shield, Dragon Dagger, Blade Blaster & Power Sword. An excellent “last-hurrah” of sorts for the Legacy series!
Legacy Armored Red Ranger is currently scheduled for release in November 2018! The price is a very modest $22.99 USD before shipping and handling!
It’s collection completion time! The GameStop exclusives, Legacy Power Rangers Zeo Pink Ranger and Legacy Power Rangers Zeo Yellow Ranger, are now available both at GameStop.com as well as arriving at local GameStop stores! This is your chance to finally complete the Legacy Zeo Megazord figure as well as adding the highly sought after Zeo girls to your Legacy collection.
Share your pictures with us on Twitter via @TokuNation or using the hashtag #TokuNation and we’ll share your score with our followers!
Looks like fans of the Power Rangers Legacy action figure series are in for one last treat!
A new listing at GameStop has revealed an upcoming exclusive Legacy action figure- Mighty Morphin Armored Red Ranger! This will be an excellent entry for fans of the iconic Dragon Shield configuration.
The Legacy Armored Red Ranger is listed with a price tag of $19.99 USD and has a tentative release date of November 15 2018! However, price and release details are subject to change. Stay tuned to TokuNation for further details on this exciting Legacy entry!
UPDATE TO STORY: A lot of readers have inquired on whether or not this is a Legacy 6.5″ action figure, or if this could be a Legacy flip head figure. To that end – we honestly don’t know for sure. What we DO know – “AF” stands for “Action Figure” in GameStop listings, so the speculation that this is a Pop! Vinyl is probably inaccurate.
The $19.99 price tag attached puts it at the same price range of the two Legacy figure assortments (both 6.5″ and flip heads). The assumption made is that GameStop has shown increased interest in selling items for collectors – specifically the Legacy lines – and this is another offering. Who knows – maybe the Psycho Ranger girls show up at GameStop in Spring 2019.
