Today we will be taking a look at Super 7's take on the Green Ranger from the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Ultimate line. According to Super 7, the Ultimates line is highly detailed and intricately sculpted, action figures that are sure to impress! With interchangeable heads and hands as well as an arsenal of accessories, they're a collector's dream come true!

Before we open this up, let's take a look at the packaging.
The Green Ranger comes in an angled square box. The figure itself is displayed in the middle with all his accessories. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers logo is at the bottom with the Green Ranger name listed below. Turning the box to the side we have a lightning bolt wrapping itself around to the front of the box. The back of the has a picture of the Green Ranger as well as a write-up below. Tommy Oliver, the one and only Green Ranger, first debuted as the evil 6th Ranger, controlled by Rita Repulsa, and was able to defeat the Power Rangers and the Dino Megazord single-handedly! It took the combined strength of all five Power Rangers to break Rita Repulsa's spell. With his free will returned, the Green Ranger could join the other Power Rangers in their fight against her. Tommy is an excellent addition to the team, wielding the power of the Dragon Dagger, which enables him to summon and control the mighty Dragonzord to help the Rangers fight against evil. The other side of the box has the same lighting bolt wrapping itself around the front.
INSIDE OF THE BOX:
Let's take a look at how the figure comes packed inside.
Taking the figure out of the box we get two plastic trays holding the figure and all the accessions. We also get a purple backdrop with some energy in the background.
OUTSIDE OF THE BOX:
Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.
Now that we have the Green Ranger out of his plastic prison we can see that overall he does look good. Super 7 did a very good job trying to capture the look of the Green Ranger, however, there is just something about the figure itself that looks a little off to me, maybe its that the suit, there are no wrinkles or anything like Hasbro does.
Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.
Like most Super 7 figures, Green Ranger comes with many accessories, so let's get into this. You are able to pop out the arms that are on the figure and swap them out with these interchangeable arms and shield to make him look like the 90s toy but my figure the arms won't pop out at all, and I tried everything from heating him up to just pulling the arms and I couldn't get it. That was highly disappointing for me. He also comes with a classic toy-inspired grey Dragon Dagger. The old 90s toy also came with a Blade Blaster in gun mode so we get one of them as well. We also get a fully painted dagger, the Sword of Darkness, The Sword of Power that he used in The GREEN DREAM episode, the Mega Heater gun he used in GREEN NO MORE part 2. He also comes with the best accessory ever, an open Morpher. A Good Tommy head, and an Evil Tommy head, both heads are overpainted and look very cartoon-like. Lastly, he comes with some extra hands, Left and Right Gripping Hands, Left, and Right Gripple Hands with vertical joints, and Dagger Playing Hands.
How can we pose the figure? Let's find out!
GREEN RANGER’S ARTICULATION INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
DUMBBELL JOINTED NECK - This allows you to turn the head 360 degrees.
BALL-HINGED SHOULDERS - Gives the arm 360-degree rotation and also the ability to raise and lower the arm.
UPPER BICEP SWIVEL - This cut lets you turn the whole arm below the cut 360 degrees.
SINGLE JOINTED ELBOWS - This allows you to bend the arm about 90 degrees.
SWIVEL HINGE WRISTS - It allows you to be able to turn the figure's wrists in a full 360-degree circle while also bending them up and down.

WAIST SWIVEL - This lets you be able to turn the figure around 360 degrees at the waist.

BALL JOINTED ANKLES - The ankle hinge allows you to bend the foot front and back and to the left and right.

How does the size of this figure compare to others?
The Green Ranger stands right around the 7-inch mark. Our new Green Ranger is standing next to my original Bandai figure, the Hasbro Lighting Collection figure, and the Bandai Legacy figure.
What are Baby Huey's scores for the figure?
PAINT JOB 5/5 - This figure is loaded with paint, so is everything he comes with. Super 7 doesn't cheap out on the paint.
FIGURE SCULPT 2.5/5 - The sculpt is ok looking overall, What I'm not liking is how stiff the figure looks since there are no wrinkles in the suit. If they would have added something like that like Hasbro did he would be 10x's better looking. The head sculpts could look so much better too if they didn't have so much paint on them
POSING 1.5/5 - He is a little hard to pose sometimes with only the single-jointed elbows and knees.
ACCESSORIES: 5/5 - Man there really isn't anything more I could ask for.
DURABILITY 2/5 - The arms being stuck inside so I can swap them out is a bummer, I also feel like if I keep trying I'm going to break the figure and for his price, I don't want to do that at all.
OVERALL SCORE 3.2/5 - I am a little disappointed in this guy, I am a huge Green Ranger and JDF fan and was hoping for a little more from the figure itself.
RETAIL COST: $55.00
I PICKED MINE UP AT BEST BUY.
TIME FOR SOME TOYING AROUND!
