GameStop now has an exclusive line of glittery POP! Television figures celebrating the "Mighty Morphin Powers Rangers," ahead of the feature film rebooting the series, "Power Rangers." The figures include the five main rangers from the original series -- yellow, red, black, blue and pink -- in their solid, noticeably glittery, colors.
“Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” debuted on the Fox Kids afternoon weekday block in 1993. The series originally aired in Japan under the name “Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger,” with later seasons drawing from “Gosei Sentai Dairanger” and “Ninja Sentai Kakuranger.” The series was heavily adapted for release in America, with much of the original shows’ plots being rewritten, costumes changed and characters added or wholly removed.
The original Japanese series were part of Toei’s long-running “Super Sentai” series—“sentai” meaning “task force” or “fighting squadron.” The series, which still airs today as “Uchu Sentai Kyuranger,” is part of the tokusatsu genre, which combines sci-fi and fantasy-based drama with special effects to create entertainment aimed at children.
Debuting in theaters March 24, “Power Rangers” is a reboot of the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” ranchise. “Power Rangers” is a production of Lionsgate directed by Dean Israelite and starring Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Bill Hader and Bryan Cranston.
The glittery POP! Power Rangers figures can be ordered right now, exclusively from GameStop.
