My Small Collection of Morphers

When I was young I never ever got a chance to buy a morpher. When I was older I never came by morphers because Bandai Europe was run by idiot trolls who stopped selling Morphers when Zeo Started!
Now though I got more then enough morphers in my collection. Like my Legend Mobirates I blogged about earlier. Or the Armor Hero stuff that don't work because they are bootlegs.
But the one I am most proud of is my normal Morhper which I bought in February (kinda forgot how long at it actually was lol) It came in a box with 2 megazords and some small stuff. But it only had the Mastadon coin. and of course its not a Dyno Buckler. Nope I bought Reprolables as soon as I got this thing. But first I attempted to fix its faults. For instance. The batteries in it where almost rusted away. And the red part under it was greasy a can of fat. I got 3 of the 4 screws off and cleaned one of the plates in hot water. One of the screws was broke when I bought it so I had to clean it by soaking and rubbing (giggity!) it. It worked out great! I even managed to get it working for a few days. But the sound started to decline and the lights arent even working properly. So I removed the batteries out of fear for rust. Any way I love this thing and I hope to get the 2013 morpher too!
Abaranger is one of those of which I kinda was disappointed at. For one thing Its the one from Mainland China and it doesn't work quite as good as the original and its American counterpart. Instead of making a Dino/Flying Reptile sound when opening and closing the mouth parts. It makes the sound when opening. And when you close it this thing will go in to call mode. This is annoying. You'd think the Chinese would get this right. Just switch around the effects. Or put call mode where its actually supposed to be, which is when the mouth is closed and you push the button!.

Next up are my SPD morphers. I got 2 normal ones and 1 Battlized morpher. They are okay but they could have been better. My first gripe is the sound. Dekaranger was pretty much one of the best Sentai's with their sound effects. And this is pretty evident with my Gokai Patrol Striker. But ALL of the SPD morphers are really really quiet. Bandai America failed there. Now my Battlized Morpher on the other hand is really good. But then again all I got with that is a small LED that goes on and off when you grab the throttle... Also Yes I painted my morphers. First just to fix some scratches. And then to make a Master Licence. and then to make my own morpher. Sadly I got disinterested in the painting stuff for the moment. So its been left for the mothballs.

My first morpher is the accelerator from Boukenger. Well from Power Ranger Operation Oversuck... Its not bad. But not worth the money I paid for it. Which was €18. Inferior plastic and an annoying piece of cardboard instead of the codes on the original. Sounds are okay. But I miss the Go Go Goooo~ part when you call for the Bouken vehicles.

Some Other Stuff                                                                  
And this is what else I got
As I was saying on the Legend Mobirates blog. I got this Ride & Go Machine in order to get the Red Buster Key without having to buy the DX Gobuster set which gets sold out constantly. 
Its a cool thing. But to be fair. I kinda leave it in the box most of the times. I shouldn't have put the stickers on either. I don't really like shelf fillers. And I have to many already.
Speaking of Keys. Here are my 5 Go Red Keys. Which I was planning to paint, Sadly I am being lazy at the moment. And I still need to find the right paint for some.
 And lastly something I got in the Box along with the Power Morpher. The DX Hurricane Hawk. I have no idea at all where the Shinobi Machines have gone. But I am glad its in here. This thing is so well made.  At first I could have sworn that the main body was made out of Diecast.
Sadly I don't have much use for it. Other then a display piece or to joke around with my Ninja Megazord. (which I should dust off) If I get a chance I'll buy a Storm Megazord complete that is. I don't really care if I have such a small thing two times.

Any ways. I'll be posting another Megazord from the box next. Bye :)
