Super Sentai Team #01: Himitsu Sentai Gorenger Sofubi (1975-1977)
Everything has to start somewhere (Sentai, Super Sentai and Power Rangers) and Gorenger/Goranger was the first Sentai series!
My favorite character from this series is the Yellow Ranger (Kirenger) and it was an extremely successful and long running show (for a Sentai show).
I was so happy to complete this set and I found 4 of the Soft Vinyl figures on yahoojapan and the others in Hong Kong.
These Sofubi are available and can be found in the wild but the prices range depending on condition.
For some reason the Pink Ranger is difficult to find or at least at an affordable price. Which is why I feel like I ended up with a great deal on the yahoojapan set.
I bought a complete Green Ranger and Yellow Ranger in Hong Kong at In's Point (the Green Ranger from yahoojapan had a broken arm and the Yellow Ranger had some paint coming off).
Since I bought the Sofubi on yahoojapan before my Asia trip, it was nice finding the two upgrades during my trip (its interesting to note that this Sentai series had two Yellow Rangers; so I will add the double to the team).
You gotta love that vintage look!
Found on: yahoojapan & In's Point (Hong Kong)
Price: yahoojapan set was 3,200 yen (circa $29) + Shipping + Proxy Service Charge & the two found in Hong Kong: 150 HKD each (circa $19)
