The newest action figure to hit store shelves is an evil Red Ranger! But it may not be the Red Ranger you expected.
Bandai America has released a brand new 5-inch action figure based on the evil Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Red Ranger clone from Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel‘s 25th Anniversary episode, ‘Dimensions In Danger’.
The figure features the original Red Ranger with his black gloves and boots, a Power Sword, and his iconic spiked armor that gave him a villainous appearance on TV.
In the episode, Lord Draven kidnaps Rocky DeSantos, using him to create an army of evil Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Red Ranger clones. Lord Draven would also go on to create evil clones for the Power Rangers Turbo Pink Ranger, Power Rangers In Space Blue Ranger, Power Rangers Dino Thunder Black Ranger and White Ranger, Power Rangers Samurai Gold Ranger, and Power Rangers Megaforce Yellow Ranger.
Bandai America confirmed to us that the other evil clone Rangers will not release in toy form. An action figure was only made for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Red Ranger as a “special salute” to the 25th Anniversary episode.
The newest action figure was found at Walmart by Reddit user gwakamole614.
Bandai will continue to release Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel toys through the end of 2018. Hasbro’s first Power Rangers toys will begin to release in spring 2019.
Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel is currently airing every Saturday at 12pm ET on Nickelodeon.
