Super Sentai Showcase #1: Japanese Super Sentai/Ranger Keys

 

Not exactly "Little Rubber Guys" but still "Little Plastic Guys"...I am indeed a victim of my own whims! On my last trip to Japan I was sucked/caught/infected by the Super Sentai bug. I was fighting the urge for a long while now since I grew up loving Power Rangers and I would say that along with Pro Wrestling played a pivotal role in my life.

 

Does anyone else collect Super Sentai keys from Japan or Ranger keys from the U.S?

 

This will serve to show my collection and also for me (since it's a way to keep track of my collection online). I am about halfway from completing my collection but I was told that these are getting harder and harder to collect or come by (not to mention expensive).

 

The keys themselves had different releases (boxed, in packs & gashapon: with/without stickers); so collecting all variants will be insane!

 

I would love to see some LRG key collections too!

Himitsu Sentai Gorenger Keys

 

I managed to get a complete set but they have at least 2 types of releases (gashapon, boxed, in packs & with/without stickers). So it was nice getting a complete set but I do have some doubles with stickers on the chest (but I technically count those as "variants"). So collecting these if you want all versions will be tasking!!!

Ranger Key Set: Metal Heroes Edition Set (Bandai Gokaiger / Ranger key Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger Gokaiger)【Ranger key set complete edition】

 

 

This beauty came in the mail today from Mandarake and it is the first boxed set I own (I bought all my keys loose). I love this set because its dedicated to Metal Heroes (familiar examples to U.S audiences: VR Troopers or Big Bad Beetleborgs). It felt like opening a jewelery case and the sets are quite nice in presentation. These can get quite pricy (I got mine for 7000 yen and that was the cheapest set I found on Mandarake) but honestly I dont know what the market is on these price wise since am relatively new to collecting Ranger Keys. It was perfect timing since am currently watching Juukou B-Fighter :)

Dai Sentai Goggle-V (Missing 4 Keys)

 

I only have one key! Hopefully I can pick up the other 4 keys I am missing (I recently acquired a lot of keys from Japan and I am hoping at least one Goggle-V Ranger key I need is in that lot).

Choudenshi Bioman (Missing 4 Keys)

 

When first buying these in Asia I was only going for the Red Rangers. So I only have the Red Ranger key and apparently the Green Ranger Bioman key is pretty hard to come by or expensive:

I don't understand the term key with these, are they actually keys? Or a type of figure? Never heard of or seen these before.

They look like they fold it bend, Is it a gimmick?

(Keys or Figure) Both...kinda

 

They are essentially a mini figure and a key (with posable arms). The Japanese versions are taller than the U.S releases and it is a total gimmick!

 

Besides needing to buy the keys, they also sell things like a communicator, gun, sword etc that are compatible with the figures.

 

They fold and depending on the series or release they say something accordingly when bending and inserting (like a key) the figure into the aforementioned communicator, gun, sword etc

 

The line had over 260 to collect and both retail/gashapon releases (boxed versions & packs)  :)
