Check below for a breakdown of each new addition to the Power Rangers Lightning Collection.
Mighty Morphin Red Ranger Power Sword
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is a series that’s aired its first episdode almost 30 years ago to the homes of children in August 1993. In those years, the series has featured a multitude of props on the show, one of those is the Red Ranger Power Sword, which Hasbro is releasing as a premium product of to show off or use in cosplay. The collectable features lights, sounds, and touch-activated light FX as well as a display stand. The Mighty Morphin Red Ranger Power Sword is set to release this August for $229.99 USD for ages four and up, it’s currently available for pre-order at Hasbro Pulse, Entertainment Earth and other fan retailers.
Mighty Morphin Ninja Red, Yellow and Pink Ranger Figures
The Red, Yellow and Pink Rangers from the early seasons of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Jason, Trini and Kimberlee, were portrayed by Austin St. John, Thuy Trang, and Amy Jo Johnson. They were three of the five teenagers ‘with attitude’ chosen by Zordon to protect the heart from Rita Repulsa and her minions. The Red and Yellow Rangers would later transfer their powers to their successors, Rocky (portrayed by Steve Cardenas) and Aisha (Karan Ashley).
Later in the series, the Power Rangers were granted new ninja powers by Ninjor following the destruction of their Zords at the hands of Lord Zed and Rita Repulsa’s group, thus becoming the Ninja Rangers. The six-inch Ninja Ranger figures feature premium paint, decorative details, over 20 points of articulation for high poseability, swappable heads to display the Ranger with or without his helmet, a blast effect piece, and an extra pair of hands for more ways to play or display.
Each figure will be sold separately and will cost $24.99 USD for ages four and up. The figures will launch on July 1st and are currently available for pre-order at Target as well as in limited quantities at Hasbro Pulse.
