Toying Around - Power Rangers Dino SuperCharge
I wanted to try something a little different this time since this Saturday (January 30, 2016) the new season of Power Rangers will be starting on Nickelodeon at noon.
So in honor of Power Rangers Super DinoCharge I wanted to take a quick look at 9 of the 10 Rangers that have already been released.
Left to right: Blue (Stegosaurus), Black (Parasurolophus), Green (Velociraptor), Pink (Triceratops) , Red (Tyrannosaurus), Gold (Pteranondon), Aqua (Ankylosaurus), Graphite (Pachycephalosaurus), Purple (Plesiosaurus)
Every Ranger aside from the Gold Ranger comes with the Dino Saber and the Dino Mopher that are cast in a pea green plastic. Gold Ranger comes with his Ptera Saber cast in grey plastic
Male Rangers stand a little over 5 inches while Female Rangers stand just at 5 inches
All figures have the same articulation. Only difference is the women, due to the skit they have a harder time moving the legs back and forth.
Heads and neck on a peg
Shoulders are on a ball and pin hinge

Legs are on a ball and pin hinge
Single jointed knee

Here are two Rangers (Gold and Purple) next to Marvel Legends Grim Reaper
Later this year we will get the 10th ranger to the team, The Silver Ranger (Brachiosaurus). This will be the largest team of Power Rangers ever! Most teams end up with 6 Rangers
So that’s my review on the Power Ranger Dino SuperDino Charge figures from Bandai. After a few years of changing the height of the action figures, from 3.5 inch to 6 inch they finally settled on this 5 inch scale for the last few years. I have no issues with the size at all as long as they keep it. The paint applications and articulation has for the most part are fine. Would I like to see more? Heck yes but Power Ranger toys are geared towards and for kids, not adult collectors. So they are just fine the way they are, kids can have a ton of fun playing with them….and me too as you can see below ;-)
I give them a 10/10
Don’t forget to tune in this Saturday January 30th at noon for the premier
