This is one of the best green ranger figures ever made but I still found many flaws with it. I decided to give it a little customizing to give it that show accurate look. First thing I noticed was that there were no white diamond patterns. Next I figured that since his gold vest wasn't removable I added the staps that hold it in place like on the the tv show. I only painted the straps, I was going to mold them but doing that would have interfeared with the articulation. If you look in the 1st photo you'll see that there is a big concave area going from the arm pit out to the chest, this is only on the right side of the figure. This is to allow him to hold his dagger in flute mode like on the show. I was going to fill it in but it really isn't that bad. Granted a shoulder joint, and a double hinged elbow would have done the same job if not better but I do not work for the company that manufactured this figure <:)
I also added detail to the helmet. The teeth designs bordering the visor were not painted so I gave them a silver finish. I also painted the gold bordering the ruby on the forhead of the helmet (trust me I know what the helmet looks like I do have a life size one for reference;)) I painted the morpher/belt buckle. I also painted the Dragon Dagger to look more show accurate, and finally added holster for the dagger made out of craft foam. I used foam because it holds up well, it is flexible so it doesn't hurt the articulation, the dagger has a snug fit, and it will not rub any paint details off of the dagger itself.
I realize that this isn't a ful fledged custom but it is the little things that make up a whole. Despite the flaws I highly recommend getting this figure especially if your a Ranger fan. And...now you know how to make it a better figure, and hopfully some of you can do better than I did. I hope you enjoy:)
