Woohoo! I didn't expect to start finding these figures so quickly. About three weeks ago I was having an irrational craving for more Imaginext figures. I had just found the Series 4 blindbags so I should have been satisfied for a while, but I instead found myself Googling for Series 5 pics like a lunatic. It was a bust. But then Eric over at Toyriffic sent me an email letting me know about the upcoming Rita Repulsa figure. I was ecstatic. Not only was it another in the growing family of Imaginext females, but a witchy villainous one to boot. I have a thing for bad girls. I expected them to show up sometime in Fall, but I surprisingly stumbled across a display at one of my TRUs this weekend (they only had a few different pieces, not the whole line yet). After getting my hands on this figure and Goldar, I predict the Power Rangers line will be really strong in this format. I fully intended on selling Goldar, but I'm pretty much obsessed with him. Hopefully everyone else will be too. Let's check them both out in detail below!
It was exciting to see the additional figures on the cardback. The Pink Ranger hadn't been shown previously and I think the Putty Patrol 3-Pack is news as well.
Rita's headdress is removable. Let's get these boring shots over with...
Ahh.. That signature jester-like headpiece! I love it.
Now on to Goldar.
First of all, I'm impressed that he's built like a giant Imaginext figure. He has the same proportions as the standard buck, just greatly scaled up. He seems to be made out of a slightly rubbery, but still rigid, plastic.
Rita has a standing platform on Goldar's back. When Rita is locked in place, you can rotate her one way to make the wings pop out, and turn her the other way to make the right arm raise.
Goldar's tail is curled up into a loop on his back. It appears to be made of rubber with a wire in it for posing (don't quote me on that). I didn't want to play with it too much because I still might sell him.
Here are some images of Rita on her platform.
He's so big it's awesome. Look how tiny she is by his feet.
Time for a Group Pic!
