There’s a brand new Lightning Collection two-pack coming to online retailers!
The newest Lightning Collection pack will allow fans to own the Power Rangers Lost Galaxy Red Ranger, and Power Rangers In Space‘s Psycho Red Ranger, each complete with accessories.
Power Rangers Lost Galaxy‘s Red Ranger will come complete with a human head for Leo Corbett, and a Quasar Saber. The Psycho Red Ranger will come complete with his iconic sword.
Buying the two-pack will allow fans to own both Red Rangers inspired by the teamup episode ‘To The Tenth Power’ from Power Rangers Lost Galaxy.
The two-pack will retail at $39.99, with release slated for December 2019.
The newest two-pack comes on the heels of Hasbro’s announcement of a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Green Ranger and Putty Patrol two-pack revealed at San Diego Comic Con. Is this the start of a wave of two-packs featuring a Power Rangers hero and villain from Hasbro?
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
Wave 2 will hit all mass retailers in fall 2019.
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.
