The Power Rangers Megaforce Deluxe Training Set came in the mail today from Toys R Us. The website is selling this ToysRUs Exclusive set for $34.99, which is a decent price based on the fact that the Mask and the Power Ranger Blaser cost about $30 if purchased separately. For more information on Bandai products, check out our Products page on Megaforce Cast.
The Power Ranger Megaforce Deluxe Training Set delivers the ultimate role play experience. Includes a ranger mask, basic morpher, belt buckle, blaster with sounds and multiple cards. It’s all the gear you need to become a Ranger.
Deluxe Training Set
The Power Rangers Megaforce Deluxe Training Set comes with the Red Ranger mask, Power Ranger Blaster, Gosei Morpher (not the Deluxe one), Belt Buckle (card holder), 6 Power Cards, and instructions. The Red Ranger helmet and Power Ranger Blaster are two standalone products that can be found in local Targets, Walmarts, and Toys R Us. The front of the packaging shows the individual items and the cards. The back of the box promotes the Training Set items and the Megaforce Blaster (sold separately).
After finishing this review, I’ll be giving this set to my 6 year old nephew, who has been a Power Ranger fan since Power Rangers: R.P.M. As a card collector, I will keep the six cards that comes with the set. You can view all of the images on Megaforce Cast.
Red Ranger Mask
The Red Ranger Mask is a similar product to the standalone Red Ranger Mask that released last month in local stores. You can order this product on Amazon. The mask has an open visor, which I’m not a fan of. I would’ve preferred a semi-transparent layer to give the illusion of an actual visor. The mask design looks great with the details around the visor and the mouthpiece. The standalone mask (sold separately) has the appropriate visor.
Power Ranger Blaster
The Power Ranger Blaster is one of the first Power Rangers Megaforce toys that released in November 2012. You can order this product on Amazon. The Blaster comes with the Red Dragon Zord (Headder in Goseiger). The weapon is a decent size with a hint of details without the need for decals. I personally loved the details on the Dragon Zord. The blaster plays sound when pulling the trigger.
The Belt Buckle is a standalone product will release later this year. I will admit that the product looks better in person than the Toy Listing photos that are shown on Toys R Us website and the box. On a personal note, the buckle looks wonderful but the functionality needs work. The chrome-like shine on the buckle is appropriate for the accessory. The card holder doesn’t open as fluidly as I would expect it to. The width of the card holder should be a hint wider to allow easy access to the cards.
The Training Set comes with a standard Gosei Morpher. This is not the Deluxe Gosei Morpher, which can be ordered on Amazon as well as local stores. This mini-morpher is a cute yet cheap version of Bandai’s flagship product. The mouthpiece can be removed completely, which feels like an odd feature. The standard Gosei Morpher does not have any electronic functionality (sound and lights). The design on the morpher is the best part of this toy. I would’ve preferred that Bandai replaced this morpher with the Deluxe Morpher and raised the price of the set accordingly. After all, this is the Deluxe Training Set.
The following photo compares the size of the Gosei Morpher with the Deluxe Gosei Morpher.
The set includes 6 new Power Cards. Before the product released, I was concerned that the cards would be repeat cards from past products (Red Ranger Mask and Power Ranger Blaster). 2 sets of Red Ranger cards has the same Red Ranger pose but different backgrounds. We may see a similar concept to other Power Rangers Megaforce cards in the Action Card Game. For more information on the Action Card Game, check out the Cards page on Megaforce Cast.
