Action figures from Bandai’s fall Power Rangers toy line have begun to surface in retail stores. Earlier this year, The Power Rangers Samurai Times reported that these figures would also be available from online retailers such as Big Bad Toy Store, and Amazon.com. The fall line consists of the Gold Ranger in Mega Mode, the Red, Blue, Green, and Gold Rangers in their standard style, Deker, and Rita Repulsa from Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. In addition to the action figures, new zords and a Gold Ranger Morpher have been released as well.
The Power Rangers Samurai Times was able to procure cases of action figures from the fall line, and can confirm the following information. First, different “waves” of figures are denoted by a letter following the assortment number; the assortment number for Power Rangers Samurai‘s four inch figures is 31500. Cases numbered 31500A, 31500B, and 31500C were part of the spring line. Case 31500D is the first case from the fall line; it contains three Red “Fire” Samurai Rangers, three Gold “Light” Samurai Rangers, two Blue “Water” Samurai Rangers, two Green “Forest” Samurai Rangers, and one Evil Deker and Rita Repulsa per case for a total of 12 figures. Case 31500E is the second case from the fall line; it contains three Gold “Light” Mega Rangers, (Mega Mode,) three Red “Fire” Samurai Rangers, three Blue “Water” Samurai Rangers, two Green “Forest” Samurai Rangers, and one Pink “Sky” Mega Ranger for a total of 12 figures as well.
The Power Rangers Samurai Times will continue to keep track of the contents of Case 31500F, and Case 31500G as they become available to us. Power Rangers Samurai figures should be available in most major retailers, and through online distributors. Furthermore, you can check out the new section of The Power Rangers Samurai Times called Backpage, which will have links to the Editor–in–Chief’s eBay auctions of surplus Samurai figures. Once the Backpage section is gone though, so are all of the figures that were for sale there.
UPDATE: We can now confirm that Case 31500G contains three Gold “Light” Mega Rangers, three Red “Fire” Samurai Rangers, two Blue “Water” Samurai Rangers, one Green “Forest” Samurai Ranger, one Yellow “Earth” Mega Ranger, one Evil Deker, and one Rita Repulsa for a total of 12 figures per case.
