This article is about a/an cross-series toyline in the Power Rangers franchise.

The Lightning Collection is a Power Rangers cross-series toyline. It is the first Power Rangers toyline to be produced by Hasbro after the company acquired the global Power Rangers toy license from the previous company, Bandai America, in February 2018. The line serves as the successor toyline to the latter company's Legacy Collection, produced from 2016-19.

Background

Hasbro unveiled the line at Power Morphicon 6 in August 2018, touting the upcoming release as "the most show-authentic Power Rangers figures ever". Each figure stands at approximately 6 inches tall, half an inch shorter than the Legacy Collection figures, and features a less "heroic" body sculpt with real-world proportions. In addition, each figure features over 20 points of articulation. Each figure comes with the character's personal weapons and other accessories, including interchangeable hands, optional "special effect" parts, and a separate "civilian" head featuring photo-realistic likenesses of the Rangers' actors.[1]

The line is being described as an "anthology series" with waves fearuring Rangers from different teams and eras.[1] The first figure from the line to be revealed was the Mighty Morphin White Ranger, with Hasbro displaying a prototype of the figure at Power Morphicon 6. A 55-second video showing the creation of the figure was shown at Power Morphicon, which included footage of the figure with its alternate "civilian" head bearing the likeness of actor Jason David Frank.[2]

Like the previous Legacy Collection, the Lightning Collection figures retail for around $19.99.[1]
