Power Rangers Movie: New Action Figures Revealed at Comic-Con

SDCC 2016 - Power Rangers Toys Display

With every new movie, comes a slew of brand new merchandise right alongside of it - especially film version figurines of any new heroes or characters. The Power Rangers action figures (specifically, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and toys haven't been updated in quite some time. But thanks to the upcoming movie reboot, our favorite morphin' teens with attitude finally got new, smaller versions of themselves.

The new Power Rangers action figures are currently on display at this year's Comic-Con International in San Diego at the Bandai booth (#3535). They each feature futuristic armor, bright colors, and sleek helmets (see the actual movie helmets and power coins here!). As they stand there, in their little glass cases on top of a rocky landscape, they are displayed in some pretty powerful stances that highlight the strength of the new team. In fact, the action figures are designed with more joints giving the heroes more flexibility and movement.

Fans can see action figures for Singer Becky G as Yellow Ranger Trini, Ludi Lin as Black Ranger Zack, Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger Jason, Naomi Scott as Pink Ranger Kimberly, and RJ Cyler as Blue Ranger Billy. Take a closer look at the photos below.

Vintage Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger action figures wore unprotected suits of spandex, matching white boots and gloves with diamond-shaped accents, and proudly donned the gold emblem of their prehistoric counterparts on their chests. While still very collectible and desired, the old figurines are no match for the new kids on the block in their sleek, futuristic suits of armor.

The rebooted Power Rangers movie’s storyline keeps the same basic plot as the original Mighty Morphin'  TV show. Earth is attacked by an evil alien witch named Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks), who threatens to unleash an army of monsters. To put a stop to her destructive plans, Rita’s ancient enemy Zordon (Bryan Cranston) summons five unsuspecting and ordinary teens to become the Power Rangers.  With their new armored suits and martial-arts skills, they are able to morph into prehistoric robots called “Zords” to defend the Earth.

Below are shots of the other displays focusing on legacy Power Ranger costumes, zords, and weapons.

From Lionsgate Studios and Saban, the Power Rangers reboot is the beginning of what could be another successful franchise. Of course this depends on how well the film performs with critics, long-time fans, new generations of fans, and as always the box office. However, most fans are still on the fence about the reboot and anxiously awaiting the first trailer to get a better sense of what's to come. At least we already know the new action figures are up to par.

Saban’s Power Rangers will open in U.S. theaters on March 24, 2017.
