Logo-pladela

The 'Pladela' label as seen in most vehicle packs with similarly styled figures

Chogokin style figures, also commonly referred to as Popy Sentai figures (both terms used in lieu of an official term) are slim, blocky, consistent figures that represent many Ranger teams, until the scale and style started to seem outdated. The term 'Chogokin' is used to refer to anything die-cast and the 'Chogokin' label is seen in every one of the individual figures. The term Chogokin 'style' is used because there are also lightweight full plastic versions of these figures (labeled Pladela プラデラ), usually accompanying vehicles.

The Chogokin style had its roots in J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai figures, but truly began with Denshi Sentai Denziman, consistently going forward. The last full team that retained the style is Ginga Sentai Gingaman, as by Mirai Sentai Timeranger, while they had a set of figures that were similar to the look, the sculpts were more muscled.
