Just like Japan, we get our own Ranger Key Sets distributed at retail to help build our collections. These first debuted at Target stores for $12.99, then started popping up at Toys R Us for $7.99. Target quickly adjusted their Power Ranger pricing, and Key Packs are now $8.99. Finally they can now be found at Walmart for $7.92, Kmart for $7.99, and Amazon.com for $9.99. Each Key Pack unfortunately only contains three Ranger Keys, meaning teams will not be complete. In fact, Bandai has stated at Toy Fair 2014 that there is only a little over 60 Keys planned for retail, with more planned for things like conventions. Whether this pans out remains to be seen, but it’s shaping up that completing a set of Bandai America Ranger Keys will be just as annoying as Bandai Japan. Sets usually consisting of the three core males of the team, with some teams changed around for whatever reason. The first seven Key Packs are:

Super Megaforce:
– Red
– Blue
– Green

Megaforce:
– Red
– Blue
– Black

Samurai:
– Red
– Blue
– Green

Mystic Force:
– Red
– Green
– Yellow

Wild Force:
– Red
– Blue
– Black

Lightspeed Rescue:
– Red
– Blue
– Green

Lost Galaxy:
– Red
– Blue
– Green

The Keys aren’t a whole lot different than those found in toys, but those that are found in toys tend to be painted just a little bit different than the ones found in the packs, for better or worse. I’m a huge fan of the little Keys, so I really dig each and every release. It’s just unfortunate that they are only in packs of three, and getting full teams looks to be getting slimmer and slimmer every time Bandai opens their mouths. At $7.99-$9.99 a piece, we’re paying prices VERY similar to Japan. Considering our Keys are smaller, it’s really a shame that we can’t get at least five in a pack like Japan. That’s not to say the releases are bad, it’s just a shame we won’t be able to line our toy rooms like the Megaforce Command Center.
