Mega Bloks Power Rangers Samurai translucent Red Ranger and training mode Green Ranger

Nothing worth writing an extensive review over, but yesterday I picked up two blind bags from Mega Bloks Power Rangers Samurai line in London after scouring the UK for them over the past few weeks. Luck gave me the "ultra rare" translucent red ranger and the "common" training green ranger (which is wearing that hood/mask that you see for all of two seconds during the morphing sequence) and I have to say I'm quite impressed with these little guys. As well as the parts to make the figure, the packs also include a LEGO Mega Bloks brick stand in their respective colours.

The red ranger was an especially nice figure as the helmet is a separate piece to the actual head, meaning he can also be displayed helmetless (wearing that same hood/mask as Green). By the looks of it this will be a feature on all the rangers, as the Gold and Pink in the assortment are the same. The detail on the weapons is fantastic for figures of this size, it puts the Mega Mode Red figure's Fire Smasher to shame.

For £1.99, these aren't a bad purchase for Samurai/Shinkenger fans out there. Since the bags also are marked with the contents (I'm not sure of the actual numbers that determine the contents, but said number is also printed on the brick/stand) it should also be reasonably easy to get them all without spending too much money on doubles. Hopefully a few more stores closer to home will start stocking them soon.
