Individual Review:
The Mighty Morphin Red Ranger has great detailing on his suit, overall.  The diamond design continues from the chest to the back.  The Power Sword is very fine with even a tiny Tyrannosaurus emblem on it.  Then the helmet could not be any better with every detail being spot on.  

The figure only has two downsides.  The first, as with four of the six figures, are the Cuffs on the Gloves and Boots.  The raised cuffs distract from the paint scheme of the boots and cuffs a tiny bit, but nothing that can't be easily ignored.   The other small flaw, that all six suffer from, is the Belt.  The Power Morpher on is painted, granted with fine detail, but it still would have been nice to have a raised Power Morpher detail.  Plus, there was no holster on the belt, but without a Blade Blaster, the holster really isn't needed.

Individual Review:
The Red Zeo Ranger has not great, but good detailing on his suit.  As with the other figures, the paint scheme continuing on his back is a plus.  The Zeo Five Power Sword is good in detail, though the bottom of the star is slightly messed up.  The rest of the sword details are all there, including the Zeo Emblem with the five shapes.  The Red Ranger's Helmet is immaculate and spot on.  

The two flaw with this figure are the lack of chest detailing, and the belt area.  The original five inch Zeo figures in 1996 had the raised design on the Ranger's chest, whereas with this Red Zeo Ranger, the details are just painted on.  A small downside, but can be looked over.  Then, as with all the figures, the belt buckle is just painted on, instead of being raised and detailed. Plus, no holster to the belt, but with no weapons to holster, it's nothing major.

Individual Review:
The Red Turbo Ranger has wonderful suit detailing with the black lines being perfect.  The Turbo Sword, though not specific weapon of the Red Ranger, still has a great amount of detailing in it, including the Turbo Wrench emblem.  The helmet is an amazement, with all the fine details it makes one of the best of the six figures.

This figure only has two small errors to it.  The first is the weapon.  While three of the six Red Rangers in this release, got their specific "Red Ranger Weapon", the Red Turbo Ranger got the generic Turbo Sword that all Turbo Rangers had.  Why exactly did Bandai America not give him a Turbo Lightning Sword?  Who knows.  The other flaw, as usual, is the belt.  Again, the buckle is painted and no holster.  The buckle is missing a bit of detail, but nothing major.

Individual Review:
The Red Space Ranger figure is great with the simple correct suit details.  The Spiral Saber is another example of great accuracy, with no flaws in the weapon.  With the helmet, the superb detailing continues as the Space Emblem, while very tiny, is still spot on.

The small inaccuracies with the Red Space Ranger are the Cuffs and Belt.  Again, both Boot and Glove Cuffs exist where the real Space Ranger suit design do not have them.  Plus, the belt buckle is again spray painted, instead of being raised.  And no holster, but also no need for a holster since there's no weapon for it.  Really, nothing that can't be looked over.

Individual Review:
The Lost Galaxy Red Ranger figure is another good figure, though having a few flaws.  The overall details on the suit.  The Quasar Saber is beautiful in the smallest traits.  The best of those being the Red Lion emblem on the sword.  The best part of the figure is the great helmet.  The wonderful rendering can be seen via the black lines.  

There are three small fallacies, two again being nothing major.  The figure has boot and glove cuffs, when the real Lost Galaxy Suits did not have them.  The belt buckle emblem is painted, and there's no holster on the belt.  But those are really nothing major.  Though again, like the Turbo Figure, this Red Ranger did not get his specific "Red Ranger Weapon".  Instead of being given the Magna Talon, this figure got a Quasar Saber.  Now I will give Bandai America the point that the Quasar Saber was more used than the Talon, so the Saber does look more natural.

Individual Review:
The Mystic Force Red Ranger is a good figure, but admittedly, has the most flaws to it.  The looks of the suit are nice, and continue to the back of the figure.  The details on the Mystic Light Staff are amazing, and plus it's not glow in the dark.  The greatest part of the figure is the helmet.  The Red Legend helmet looks wonderful and has all the trimmings.  

The flaw with this figure are a bit more than the others.  The normal falls being the cuffs of the gloves and boots and the belt emblem being painted.  Now those are easy to look over, but the other errors are a bit more.  

First, I wish this figure was just a normal Red Mystic Ranger figure, and not have the Legend Mode to it.  The other Red Rangers are in their normal modes, granted Mighty Morphin through In Space didn't have a "power up" mode, but still.  I think all the Red Ranger figures should just be normal Red Rangers, and none featuring a higher level of power than the other.  With this Red Ranger being in Legend Mode, the weapon portion again comes into play.  All five Legend Warrior Rangers have the Mystic Lion Staff, so we have another Red Ranger not having his specific "Red Ranger Weapon".  Finally, the chest detailing on Red Mystic Sound Power Ranger Figure is spot on, but on this figure, the chest details are just painted.

Linear Review
After many years, the adult Power Rangers Collector gets recognized by Bandai America.  Now while these Red Ranger figures can be enjoyed by the young fan, they truly are meant for the adult collector.  

Each Red Ranger figure stands about 6 1/2 inches tall and has a ton of articulation.  The Rangers are much more detailed than any 5 inch figure.  The muscles may be a tad overdone, but they still look cool.  The detailing on the figures can really be seen in the helmets and on the backs of the figures.  Each Ranger helmet is spot on, and the backs of each Ranger is painted, something that never happens.  

All the Rangers come with a weapon, and while not painted, it still looks great with the Red Ranger holding it.  Adding to the collector aspect of these are the Display Stands.  The stands are all the same, and have the trademark silver lightning bolt, and the Power Ranger name label on the front.  

I have added individual reviews of each figure, along with a grade for each one.  I have to say, though each figure has some small flaws, they all are must haves.  That explains why all six grades are in the mid to high 90's.  When I do not regret buying two sets of these at all, that means that they all deserve A Grades.  Most of the flaws are easy to look past, and aren't really that noticeable when the figures are on display.   

This is hopefully only the first set of Red Rangers, so here's hoping we get the second set in 2007.  But in the meantime, I HEAVILY recommend EVERYONE go out and buy these Red Rangers figures.
