The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ first iconic villain is getting her own Lightning Collection action figure! Machiko Soga’s Rita Repulsa (or Witch Bandora if we’re getting technical) kicked off the first season of Saban’s adaptation of Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger. Now, the character is honored in 6″ form with all the glorious details preserved. Yes, including her Madonna-inspired pointy breastplate.
Rita Repulsa retails for $33.99 and will ship out at the beginning of October. However, If you were hoping that Hasbro would put Rita Repulsa in collector-friendly packaging, you’re out of luck. Nope, this wave of the Power Rangers Lightning Collection isn’t part of Hasbro’s rollback of the windowless packaging. Instead, Rita Repulsa will most likely be shipped in a box showing only a picture of the figure. Check it out below.
Hasbro’s description of Rita’s accessories is about as barebones as their current packaging:
- 2 accessories
- 2 additional face plates
- 2 sets of alternate hands.
In addition, Hasbro Pulse also has several other new Power Rangers characters up for pre-order:
- Mighty Morphin Green Ranger
- Mighty Morphin Red Ranger
- Mighty Morphin Pink Ranger
- Mighty Morphin X Cobra Kai Johnny Lawrence Morphed Black Boar Ranger
- Mighty Morphin X Cobra Kai Miguel Diaz Morphed Red Eagle Ranger
- Mighty Morphin Mighty Minotaur
- Turbo Red Ranger
- Lightspeed Rescue Blue Ranger
- RPM Yellow Ranger
- Lost Galaxy Yellow Ranger
- S.P.D. Yellow Ranger
- Dino Thunder Black Ranger
- Lost Galaxy Pink Ranger
The Rangers and other characters vary in price, between $24.99 and $33.99.
If you’re looking for a Rita with more show-accurate details and accessories, check out Super7’s Ultimates version of the character. Of course, she’ll cost more, but at least the figure will come in a display-friendly box!
