Grazie al passaggio di licenza da Bandai a Hasbro abbiamo delle figure da collezionisti dei Power Ranger di qualità ottimale, simile a quella dei Marvel Legends e della Black Series di Star Wars. Lo Shadow Ranger è un personaggio di nicchia che Bandai ci avrebbe fatto aspettare anni prima di vedere, ma Hasbro ce lo ha dato subito. E la gimmick della linea di dare a ogni Ranger la testa aggiuntiva senza casco è un tocco di classe.
Al igual que la figura del White Ranger, esta es genial. Una increíble atención al detalle, la cabeza de "civil" que trae es muy detallada y le da una vista muy distinta! De los mejores diseños que hay
On paper this figure is amazing. Amazing articulation, show accurate, and detailed all for an affordable price. I was really looking forward to finally owning a detailed SPD Shadow Ranger but was disappointed by the poor quality control. The right hand / sword grip is so loose at the wrist he can't even hold his sword up, merely the weight of the blade is enough to cause it to swing down almost immediately. Paint applications are spotty an even textured in some places.
The sword and morpher fit well into the hand and the unmasked dog-like head is nicely detailed. It's great that they include a next piece as well to help the details of the unmasked look. The additional hands are nice as well and the lightning effect on the sword is one of the better effects of this wave.
The negatives, outside of my quality control issues, are minor. I wish they'd provide more photos or details on what parts are. It took me a minute to figure out that the blue ring is meant to be his neck and that could be explained better. The joints aren't generally the same stiffness and in particular some are unnecessarily stiff (ankles, part of the shoulder, etc). And finally I feel like some of the hand held accessories could use a little more paint. This is generally across the whole line though and are relatively minor compared to the overall accomplishments of the figures.
That all said the quality control issues effectively ruin this toy for me. I've got the rest of the line and they all have varying degrees of quality issues with White Ranger being the best (only two paint application problems) and Shadow Ranger being the worst (loose wrist, multiple paint issues). Based on other reviews and photos it seems others have gotten a lot more lucky than I have though so it may just be my figure(s). Just may be something you need to risk or is better to buy in person where you can monitor things.
This would be a 4.5/5 otherwise.
Pros: - Cost effective - Detailed accessories - Great articulation
Cons: - Poor quality control for joints and paint applications - Minor nitpick issues (e.g. more paint for accessories)
Overall it's a great figure on paper that could use a little bit of a refinement to be perfect. Unfortunately the quality control aspects for the entire line let these figures down. Worth checking out but better to buy in person where you have better control over selection.
