After Hasbro bought the Power Rangers in May 2018 we've been awaiting the details on what they intend to do with the line after the end of the current Bandai licence. At Power Morphicon this weekend we got our answer with a first look at a brand new era of Power Rangers figures.
The Power Rangers Lightning Collection will borrow from Hasbro's highly successful Black Series (Star Wars) and Legends (Marvel) in that it will be a 6" super articulated line. The figures will come in boxed packaging and the figures will be released more akin to Star Wars Black Series - with different era's mixed into waves. The US RRP will be $19.99. Hasbro are also going to employ the face print technology to the series.
The first wave of this brand new Lightning collection will arrive Spring 2019, but fans at Power Morphicon were treated to a tease of one of the first figures - the White Ranger. You can see from this early prototype some elements of their Marvel Legends articulation - but also new joints such as that hand pivot and foot joint.
