The Power Rangers Legacy Mask Collection was first presented at San Diego Comic Con. A Red Ranger version of the Mask Collection was shown last year and the current Mighty Morphin version was shown a few months ago at San Diego Comic Con 2013. The product was spotted early last week by Twitter Follower @CABAN81 at a local Toys R Us. The Mask Collection rapidly found its way to ToysRUs.COM and several stores throughout the United States. The collection is priced at $29,99. You can check out the online listing to see if your local store has the item. For more information on Bandai products, check out the Products section on Megaforce Cast.
Special thanks to @CABAN81 for providing a middleman service for us last week for the review. I spotted a nice stack of the Mask Collections at our local Toys R Us yesterday.
The Legacy Mask Collection’s packaging has the same design as the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the current Power Rangers 20th Anniversary toyline, which was also featured on the Legacy Megazord and Legacy Morpher products. The usage of the green background color with white and yellow font color brings back memories from the original product line. An image of the six Ranger helmets is used three times (front, back, and sides). The box can be opened from the side. A brief summary of the Power Rangers story is shown on the back of the box. The box features the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Power Rangers 20th Anniversary logos.
The collection has a single, wide stand for the six Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The stand has a smooth, black surface with six individual white stands for each of the helmet. The front of the stand highlights the masks with the Ranger symbol and name. As much as I love the single entity of the stand, I wouldn’t have mind if there was a way to separate the mask display to spread them out.
The masks are beautifully designed to represent the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers helmets. The Green Ranger helmet uses the original Green Ranger design (without the Silver stripes). My primary rant is the lightweight nature of the masks, which can be pulled off the stands. When I opened the products, the Blue and Pink Ranger masks opened up to reveal the plastic connectors. A higher material would’ve been fantastic for this product. I posted more photos at Megaforce Cast.

Mega Bloks announced the Power Rangers 20th Anniversary Collector’s Pack at San Diego Comic Con. The Collector’s Pack features the six Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Blade Blasters. This 53-piece set will release in August as a Toys R Us Exclusive ($14.98 MSRP).
It’s Morphin time with the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 20th Anniversary Collector Pack from Mega Bloks. The original team of Red, Blue, Black, Yellow, Pink, and Green Ranger come in their classic uniforms, ready to defeat the forces of evil led by Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd! Features Power Rangers Collectible Set, Deluxe Packaging for Collectors, and a Cool buildable display stand. Ideal for kids 5 and up.
The usage of the light gray and green gradients provide a playful homage to the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers products. The box places heavy emphasis on the Power Rangers 20th anniversary logos. The artwork used on the front of the box is an adorable representaton of the Mega Bloks figures. The six Mighty Morphin Rangers and their Blade Blasters are shown in the front.
The back of the box shows the six Rangers and the collector stand. I liked the usage of the Power Coins in the box art. The coins would’ve made a fine addition to the Stand. The top right of the box promotes the super-articulated joints that were introduced in the Power Rangers Megaforce products earlier this year. The bottom of the box shows the Fall Toyline, which includes the Robo Knight Hero Racer, Snake Mechazord, and Gosei Grand Mechazord.
The Collector Pack comes with 53 pieces for the six Rangers and the Collector Stand. As shown on the box, the Rangers are already assembled. The set also comes with the Instructions, which is the standard for Mega Bloks sets. You can view all of the photos on Megaforce Cast.
The Mighty Morphin figures are pre-assembled, which is a plus in my book. The Megaforce Mega Bloks were a pain to assembly. The design of the helmets and suits resemble the Mighty Morphin characters in the traditional Mega Bloks style. The Pink Ranger helmet lacks details and could use some work. The belt is a lost opportunity for a Morpher. Mega Bloks created great belts for the Samurai and Megaforce Cast. This version of the belt looks like a cheap paint job.
The stand is easy to assemble and provides a platform for a variety of individual and team poses. The color choices for the stand is a nice touch. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers logo is shown on the front block.
I uploaded all of the Power Rangers 20th Anniversary Collector Pack photos on Megaforce Cast.
Mega Bloks is promoting their Power Rangers and Halo product lines at San Diego Comic Con.

The Gold Legacy Power Morpher is the product that fans have been waiting for since the original Power Morpher released in 1993. Bandai is selling 1,000 Gold Legacy Power Morphers at San Diego Comic Con 2013 at $100/ea. This product is a SDCC exclusive with no confirmation on whether Bandai will release a similar item in the Fall. Earlier this year, Bandai America released the Legacy Power Morpher. For more information on the original Legacy Power Morpher, check out our review on RangerCrew Blog.
True fans of the Power Rangers will instantly recognize this iconic must-have morpher – the Legacy Power Morpher in a Green Ranger / White Ranger Edition! Featuring all of the detail from the original Mighty Morphin series, this Limited Edition is 24 Karat Gold plated and comes with two Diecast coins. This morpher features all of the detail of the original series. Wear it using the included belt attachment or morph into action with lights and the original Mighty Morphin theme song! Packaged in a fully foiled collector box, collectors and kids alike will love to relive the thrill of the original Mighty Morphin series as the Green Ranger / White Ranger. Available exclusively at the Bandai America booth # 2813 at San Diego Comic Con, July 17-21, 2013. Limited quantities available each day. Only 1000 produced and individually numbered.
The packaging follows the 1993 design schema that was also used in the 2013 Legacy Power Morpher. Green and White Rangers are shown on the front cover with appropriate sizing to maintain the focus on the product and the green packaging. The morpher and the two coins are visible from the front of the box. The back of the box maintains the classic design with the usage of background color and font. The size of the box (same as the original Legacy Power Morpher) is pretty small for the epic product. I remember the large box that came with the 1993 Power Morphers and Blade Blaster set.
The Gold Legacy Power Morpher comes with the 24K gold diecast Morpher, 2 Power Coins (Dragon and Tiger Coins), Holster, and Instructions. You can view all of the photos on Megaforce Cast.
The Gold Legacy Power Morpher has the same weight and beauty of the original Legacy Morpher with an added reflective nature from the gold plating. If you loved the original morpher, you are well on your way in enjoying this version. I’m not a fan of the gold plating because I prefer the original shine, which also looked stunning in various lighting. The back of the morpher has an on and off switch, which plays the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers communicator sound when switching to On. The button on the left side of the Morpher opens the Morphers and plays the lights and sounds (On Mode). The Mighty Morphin theme instrumental is played when you hold the button for a few seconds. The song sounds amazing with appropriate volume, but there was an off key near the end of the song that was quite noticeable. The Power Coin snaps properly in the Morpher with a hint of depth with the coin’s thickness. The coin can be snapped out of the morpher by pressing the Z panel in the back of the morpher.
The Dragon and Tiger Coins are included in this set. Unlike the dark finish from the original Power Coins, these two coins have a gold finish. The details of the symbol are fine rendering with the right lighting. Once again, I prefer the finish from the original coins. These coins look more gimmicky than actual coins. If Bandai decides to release these coins to the public, I hope they go with the original finish.
It’s Morphin Time
Here is a quick video that I filmed with the Gold Legacy Morpher last night.
Following its debut in 1993, Saban’s iconic live-action pop culture franchise, Power Rangers quickly became the most watched children’s television program in North America. Emphasizing the importance of teamwork, responsibility and helping others by following the adventures of a group of ordinary young people who “morphed” into superheroes, this long-running series has been seen in more than 150 countries, translated into numerous languages, and remains a mainstay in children’s programming blocks. For 20 years, the highly entertaining saga and fan favorite characters from Power Rangers have captivated children and adults alike and are beloved by legions of fans worldwide.
In celebration of this multi-generational pop culture phenomenon, Shout!
