Teenage Mutant… Power Rangers? [Hasbro Review]

For our latest delve into the upcoming releases from Hasbro UK, we’re taking a look at these MMPR x TMNT figures. The potential is definitely there with two powerhouse franchises coming together, but do the figures live up to the hype? Let’s find out, shall we?


MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS X TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 6” LIGHTNING COLLECTION – MORPHED DONATELLO BLACK RANGER AND LEONARDO BLUE RANGER Collab 2-Pack

(Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: £59.99 /Available: SS 2022)

VERDICT: I’ll admit, these are pretty cool. The sculpting is on point the articulation is decent, but for £60(!?) I could get three better accessorised Power Rangers figure for £6 less. They’re pretty enough, but the price point is a big problem.

COWABUNGA DUDES, DUDETTES, AND DUDERINOS… IT’S MORPHIN TIME! From DINO FURY back to the original MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS, the POWER RANGERS have brought teamwork, action, and adventure to fans. The legacy continues with figures, vehicles, collectibles, and roleplay toys from Hasbro. Imagine all the action of POWER RANGERS with toys from Hasbro! In the Boom! Comics crossover miniseries, the teens from Angel Grove are cut off from their powers, and Donatello and Leonardo use the Rangers’ morphers to become the new Black and Blue Rangers.

This MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS X TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 6” LIGHTNING COLLECTION MORPHED DONATELLO BLACK RANGER AND LEONARDO BLUE RANGER Collab 2-Pack features action figures with premium paint and decorative details inspired by the Boom! Comics crossover miniseries, with over 20 points of articulation in each figure for high poseability. Plus, swappable heads to display the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Ranger helmet or without (it’s turtle time!).

This bodacious 2-pack also includes multiple character-inspired collab accessories, like Donnie’s staff merged with the Black Ranger Power Axe, Leo’s katana merged with the Blue Ranger’s Power Lance, and blast effect pieces, along with an extra pairs of hands for more ways to play or display. GO POWER RANGERS! Look for more collectibles in the LIGHTNING COLLECTION. Each sold separately. Available for pre-order from Hasbro Pulse UK and all good collector sites.


MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS X TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES LIGHTNING COLLECTION – MORPHED RAPHAEL RED RANGER AND FOOT SOLDIER TOMMY Collab 2-Pack

(Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: £59.99 /Available: SS 2022)

VERDICT: Again, a cool set. Not quite as cool as the last one, but still cool. Tommy should really be a Casey, one character sorely lacking from this wave, but the Raph is fine. Somehow, the last pack turned out to be the well priced one, because in this pack you get a worse-than-average Lightning Collection figure and a TMNT figure… again for £60

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS X TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES LIGHTNING COLLECTION – MORPHED MICHELANGELO YELLOW RANGER AND APRIL O’NEIL PINK RANGER Collab 2-Pack

(Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: £59.99 /Available: SS 2022)

VERDICT: My thoughts on Michelangelo remain consistent with the other Turtles. As for April, yet another generic pink ranger is exactly what we need, right? £60 for two re-packs with alternate heads. Great.

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS X TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES LIGHTNING COLLECTION – MORPHED SHREDDER GREEN RANGER Figure

(Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: £34.99/Available: SS 2022)

[Click to Enlarge]

VERDICT: This is the best of the new figures, hands-down. The sculpting is impeccable, some of Hasbro’s best, the articulation is on point, and he had alternate hands! But for the price of a small Hasbro vehicle or studio series ’86 Hot Rod, I just can’t see the value here. You’d really just be buying these for the novelty value.

GO POWER RANGERS! Look for more collectibles in the LIGHTNING COLLECTION. Each sold separately. . Available for pre-order from Hasbro Pulse UK and all good collector sites.


OVERALL: There’s no two ways about it, Hasbro has really dropped the ball with these figures. These should be some of the most exciting action figures of the year, but instead they are overpriced and lazy.  A major disappoinment.
