Goldar is joining the next wave of Hasbro’s Power Rangers Lightning Collection!
At Toy Fair 2019, it was announced that Wave 2 of the Lightning Collection will release in Fall 2019, and Goldar will be featured as a GameStop exclusive!
The action figure will include moveable wings, and detailed gold paint.
Goldar will be accompanied by the Power Rangers Beast Morphers Red Ranger as part of Wave 2. They are the only two characters confirmed to be a part of Wave 2 thus far.
Rumors suggest that the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Pink Ranger, Power Rangers Lost Galaxy Magna Defender, and Power Rangers Beast Morphers Gold Ranger will also be a part of Wave 2.
Each figure will retail at $19.99.
The Power Rangers Lightning Collection is a line of action figures with an emphasis on quality. The line will span over time to include action figures based on different Power Rangers heroes and villains, each with a premium design.
Each action figure will include weapons, accessories, and swappable heads. Some figures, where necessary, could include multiple accessories or swappable heads.
Action figures in the Lightning Collection line will stand at 6 inches tall, and feature 27 points of articulation. Hasbro will also be including optional special effects with each figure.
The brand new toy line will be Hasbro’s equivalent to Marvel’s Legends line, or Star Wars’ Black Series line. Many fans will liken it to Bandai America’s previous Power Rangers Legacy line.
The strategy marks a different approach from Bandai’s, the former maker of Power Rangers toys from 1993-2018. While Bandai planned its Legacy Figure waves around the release of complete seasons, Hasbro appears unafraid to jump across all 25 years of the Power Rangers timeline. Some fans may be excited to see representation from every point in Power Rangers history (with villains included), while others may grow weary of the possibility that they may never see complete teams released.
