Article by Action Ranger Timmy
So I'm walking through a Wal-Mart and suddenly I'm all, huh, 4inch Mighty Morphin Power Rangers toys. It's an anniversary, and I had heard they were reissuing toys of the original Rangers, but I didn't realize there were toys in the 4-inch scale. I took a look, and holy hell, they have all the articulation I require in a 4-inch figure before I start considering it.
So I want to check them out, but which one? All the male rangers had comically oversized hands and huge metal pins in their joints, I was worried the pink ranger's skirt would restrict the leg joints, so I went with the Yellow Ranger. And that works since I do like collecting toys of Asian-American Pop Culture heroes. (Trini. RIP)
But yeah, I'm really digging this figure. There's ball jointed leg and shoulder joints, hinge joints at the elbows and knees, and there's cut joints at the gloves and the head. If there was a waist joint I'd probably go out and buy the entire team, but as it is... I dunno I might just enjoy this one and leave it at that.
