Hasbro has just finished wrapping up their Power Rangers Toys and Collectibles Power Hour panel at Power Morphicon 2018. There was a lot of reveals that came from this panel.
Power Rangers: Legacy Wars
First up was the 25th Anniversary announcements involving the mobile game Power Rangers: Legacy Wars. This past week, an image showing five orbs of different colours has been revealing the next characters to join the game. After reveals of Shadow Ranger, Samurai Gold, Titanium Ranger, and Ranger Slayer the final reveal was shown off at the panel to be Hyperforce Yellow. This is Hyperforce’s first introduction into Legacy Wars and continues their presence in more Power Rangers products.
Two new Funko POP’s were officially revealed at this panel as well, first being a metallic version of the helmetless Tommy Green Ranger that was just recently released. This will be a Galactic Toys exclusive. Another Tommy related POP was announced with Lord Drakkon getting his own POP as well. The rest of the new wave already announced will be popping up in the next few weeks.
Heroes of the Grid
The new Kickstarter game Heroes of the Grid, which has already reached over $200,000 in it’s goals has revealed another figure for the game in the works. Cyclopsis will be the next figure joining the game. It was also mentioned how the game will allow fans to create their own Ranger team with the different add-on packs that are going to be released. They choose to use Kickstarter since it gave the game a more direct connection to fans in the development of the game and see if the interest was there.
DropMix & Lineage Studios
Joining with Hasbro two new partnerships with Power Rangers have been announced. DropMix was announced to be producing cards that break down songs to create new songs based on other parts of songs. A card based on the original Go Go Power Rangers theme song will be offered at Power Morphicon.
The other partnership, Lineage Studios, will be working on wearable collectibles. They will be starting with a Power Morpher in both the silver and gold version with swappable coins, including coins from such events as Shattered Grid. Lineage will also be producing movie posters like artworks based on major Power Rangers events with Forever Red, Shattered Grid, and Soul of the Dragon being shown off first.
