Since Hasbro acquired the license to Saban’s Power Rangers in May last year, fans have been eagerly anticipating the first reveals of their upcoming toy lines. In August, they teased the Lightning Collection – a premium line of action figures – with a reveal of Tommy Oliver, the White Ranger. Since then, they’ve been relatively quiet on the figure front.
But with Toy Fair coming up next week, and more toys due to hit shelves this Spring, Hasbro has unveiled its Basic line and a pair of Zords – these figures are targeted at the Power Rangers’ younger fans. We hope to see more of the collector-oriented Lightning Collection at Hasbro’s Fan Media Briefing next weekend. Stay tuned!

This fall, Nickelodeon debuted Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the fourth animated TMNT show. Earlier this month, Playmates Toys launched the accompanying toy line. Our friends at Playmates were kind enough to send us five figures from the new action figure assortment – the four Turtles, because no review could be complete without them, and Baron Draxum, the main baddie from the new show.
Hasbro kicked off New York Comic Con with their “deskside chat” with the Marvel brand team. Ryan Ting from marketing and Bobby Vala from design shared their latest reveals and plans for 2019.
I’ll be brief, since I’m trying to actually get to the convention sometime today 😀 – but will update as I review the video of our conversation. The video should go up on our YouTube channel late tonight or tomorrow morning.
