Power Rangers Lightning Collection Wave 3 Revealed

The third wave of Hasbro’s Power Rangers Lightning Collection has likely surfaced online.

In a series of Walmart online toy listings found by Twitter user @PowerRangerTalk, Wave 3 of the Lightning Collection will evidently feature:

•Red Ranger (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers)
•Gold Ranger (Power Rangers Dino Charge)
•Blue Ranger (Power Rangers Beast Morphers)
•Lord Drakkon (BOOM! Studios’ Comics)

The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Yellow Ranger is also expected to release as a Lightning Collection figure, but may not do so until a later time.

The lineup will still lean heavily on Hasbro’s skew towards male characters, bringing the Lightning Collection’s total to 20 male characters and 1 female character.

Three of the characters in Wave 3 will be a part of the dino-themed teamup coming to Power Rangers Beast Morphers in 2020, with all but Lord Drakkon expected to appear on the show. The upcoming teamup is the likely reason for the third wave of Hasbro’s toy line leaning very heavily into Power Rangers’ dino-themed seasons (click here for more on the upcoming teamup episode).

While unconfirmed, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Red Ranger figure will likely feature a human head for Jason Scott, and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Yellow Ranger figure will likely feature a human head for Trini Kwan. Hasbro stated at San Diego Comic Con 2019 that they have no plans to release an action figure with more than one human head (click here for more on Hasbro’s San Diego Comic Con comments).

The Wave 3 figures are expected to hit stores in late 2019, or early 2020.

At San Diego Comic Con 2019, Hasbro also officially announced, for the first time, the complete Wave 2 of Lightning Collection action figures, which includes the long-rumored:

• Pink Ranger, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
• Magna Defender, Power Rangers Lost Galaxy
• Red Ranger, Power Rangers Beast Morphers
• Gold Ranger, Power Rangers Beast Morphers

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.

    1. I know it’s stupid to think people are actually complaining about more males being made when power rangers has always been more for boys than girls. While power rangers has had a ton of females in the past and a lot of fans that are female even they would go for male figures as oppose to the girls. Not to mention they’re just starting with the third wave and they did add one more female. Honestly you just can’t please everyone

  1. Great, but how about telling me when the f**king show will return to TV in the U.S.

    This waiting is literally destroying me

  2. When will they stop with Mighty Morphin and do other Ranger series? They do realize that there are other cooler Rangers out there

    1. You do realize last wave was SPD, MMPR, and Dino Charge, this wave is MMPR, Shattered Grid, and Dino Charge. Exclusives have been similar, with psycho rangers, Lost Galaxy, MMPR black and Goldar, and Zeo gold? trust me, once they get MMPR out of the way, they will be full force towards other series, probably finishing up Lost Galaxy and Beast Morphers, as well as starting to get into Dino Charge and Zeo. we are already getting A LOT more variety than we did with Bandai.

          1. Why do you hate RPM! Are you a fan of MMPR since true fan watch all Power Rangers. MMPR is the most overrated season ever. We didn’t even have any RPM figure yet

  3. I thought I hear a rumor back than that Beast Morpher Yellow was going to be a game stop exclusive when someone show off Beast Morpher Red at New York Toy Fair 2019 unless they forgot about it. Maybe it will soon come and I’m excited to see Beast Morpher Blue since it my favorite suit in Go-Buster/Beast Morpher, it might be biased since blue is my favorite color. Lol! When we do get it I will try to collect the whole entire current time. For me if I have to pick one team to be completed soon, it be current team since I give them a special place on shelves! Maybe Beast Bot, especially Steel since he never got Sh. Figuart! I don’t know how I will display the season since Lost Galaxy Red and Pysco Red from different season if I display by era, but I will figure it out! Can’t wait to get Boukenger/ Operation Overdrive and Tensou Sentai Goseiger/ Megaforce since they didn’t complete team in Sh. Figuart! Please Sh. Figuart do more Super Sentai figuart especially Kyuranger who suit look great, but it need little more time by either attaching like Washi Pink wing or Sasori Oranger Tail, or complete different mode like Oakami Blue and Oshi Black!

  4. For Mahou Sentai Magiranger/ Mystic Force, can someone please tell Hasbro to made the cape part only out of cloth material instead of plastic since I want the figure to move better and when making my own animation, it will look like the cape is moving?
    This applies to any cape heroes!
    For example if they going to make a different Magna Defender with Mike head and different accessories, I want the cape to move!
    I don’t know have this will apply to head that have moving hair especially the female since they can get stuck on head movements.
    Another idea is it can apply to female like the skirt since I don’t mind the slit between skirt but it can look weird in that it seem like the skirt is rip open. It doesn’t always have to be the female ranger, it can be villain too and especially in Gokaiger/ Super Megaforce the male have like side flip pieces.
    Just an idea 💡

  5. Lightning Figures I want to include that important to make are:
    *Super Sonic: It made an appearance in PR Super Megaforce and Boom Studios Comic
    *Hyper Force: Beside Hero of the Grid, it need more love in toy industry
    *2017 Movie: Even though we got some in Legacy Line, I want a Rata, Golden Goldar
    *Chameleon Green: It was cool to make a first appearance on Boom Studios Comic, but this one can be confusing unlike it get a rerelease when Kyurangers actually come
    *Dairanger: So that I can put Tommy on this team, please Boom Studios write a story on what happens to the rest of the Dairanger suit!
    Fun Idea:
    *If you going to sell to especially Japan and fan of Super Sentai in America, make some deal with Bandai Japan making Super Sentai figures in this line can be cool!! Maybe make it Amazon Exclusive, or Hasbro!

    1. Sorry I mean Toei, not Bandai Japan, or let Toei to remind Bandai Japan to make some of these Lightning Collection figures over their so I buy it here for the price. Usually I think these figures will not be too expensive to ship here since in Japan you can get better quality for less! Especially a $15 or under rider kick figure is better than $20 or more legacy/ lightning collection!

  6. How can the fans get in contact with Hasbro? there is no poll or anything like that.
    There are so many cool characters, which were never or rarly released.
    Kind Mondo, Darkonda, Ecliptor, Phantom Ranger, Scorpina, Rito Revolto, Astronema….

    1. You know we can receive better quality paint and plastic in other area. So to keep it in 20 dollars range with cloth cape, we can receive more weapon, hand, and to add on.
      Since Cloth doesn’t cost much, maybe Both? In that if you want to change the cape, but I don’t mind if they have peg hole that is hidden under the cape!

  7. Couple of things.

    1. MMPR is always going to be the most popular to the general public and the line’s cash cow, so expect every single wave to have an MMPR figure.

    2. I hope this line stays so far away from soft goods, it ALWAYS looks awful at this scale and if a cloth cape is really that desired it’s super easy to mod one yourself (you can’t really do it the other way around).

    3. When they get to Rita (which I hope is sooner rather than later), I hope they do one of those awesome plastic overlays with the snaps like they used on their Marvel Legends Talos figure! It looks a million times better with all the details visible and it doesn’t look crazy like how the Star Wars Admiral Holdo turned out (I really hate when they mix cloth and plastic because it NEVER looks good).

    They’ve even proven they can do a great articulated sleeved arm like on the Marvel Legends Collector and Grandmaster.

    The base body could even just be the basic female ranger body cast in brown to save on tooling. It’d just be new head, arms, removeable plastic collar/conebra, brown plastic dress overlay, and her staff.

    1. Yes we do need that cape! Do you really want your figure to look cheap on paint? Personally I agree with Anonymous on this one since you should of not be mean to them since you should of say that I great idea, but I think this will make it look better. To me I think it important since with plastic you can’t do that. If you want a plastic one, make one yourself since Power Rangers meant to be in dynamic pose since cloth will make it look better since you need the cape to fully move!

    2. You know we can receive better quality paint and plastic in other area. So to keep it in 20 dollars range with cloth cape, we can receive more weapon, hand, and to add on.
      Since Cloth doesn’t cost much, maybe Both? In that if you want to change the cape, but I don’t mind if they have peg hole that is hidden under the cape!

    3. Yes Rita Repulsa should come ASAP!

      Love the idea of plastic instead of cloth because you’re right, it NEVER looks good!!

      I hope Hasbro sees your comment!

  8. How is the 1st comment crying about the article mentioning a lack of women? Rita is one of THE most popular and recognizable people in MMPR history. Relax, fans do want all the iconic favorites and some of them happen to be female.

    Hopefully she and Rito Revolto are in a two pack. Personally, I want Andros, Scorpina, Ninjor, SPD Red, and Andromeda.

      1. Most of the people here in the comments can’t form proper sentences, yet even if they could they still wouldn’t make sense.

  9. Okay, I’ve skimmed through everyone’s comments so far and now it’s my turn. First, the overabundance of male characters. I don’t really care about that, but I understand where people are coming from. Representation is important and while not always a necessity, is still nice. Second, the lack of originality, e.i. redoing MMPR from the Legacy Figures and a few others so far. I perfectly understand them doing Lord Drakkon because he was an exclusive that not everyone was able to get, so now this a perfect opportunity for someone like me to get him. But I already have a full team of MMPR and there’s already a full team of Zeo and Dino Thunder. In Space and Ninja Storm were lacking rangers, so there’s an opportunity to fill the gap. I honestly do not care if MMPR is the most fondly remember among every iteration of this show, I think I speak for everyone when I say we want to see something different. Fighting Spirit Green Ranger counts, he has the silver strip, Legacy Figure did not. 😉 Honestly, I broke my Legacy Green Ranger and now I need something to replace it with, so, I guess there’s that for an excuse to do MMPR again, but still.

      1. You do know that she still in Power Rangers community right so please don’t tell us lie and give us information on this because we want to heard from actors itself!

  10. I love them.
    The Power Rangers are for me… My force, is… My force, my love, my friends, my…
    Are fantastic! And they are my talent too!

  11. Why does this website make everything about gender/sexuality. You coulda just said new Wave so and so’s incoming… NEW WAVE 9 COMING SOON! 1 Hetero Male, 1 Bisexual Male, 1 Transgender Female, 1 Gender Neutral Villain coming to a store near you! Like cmon

  12. Makayla Harmer will be in Portugal from Power Rangers Beast Morpher! I was a background character and cast was really nice!
