"After a very, very long wait — CNET has the details on Hasbro’s next San Diego Comic-Con exclusive, The Power Rangers Lightning Collection. This two-pack features 6″ versions of Jason (as both the original Red Ranger from 1993 and the Gold Ranger from 1996’s Power Rangers Zeo). They feature swappable heads for both helmet and non-helmet looks, and come equipped with the Power Axe, Power Bow, Power Blades, Power Lance, and Power Sword (which can also join together to create a Power Blaster). The Red Ranger also comes with a shield. It will retail for $50, and will be available on the Hasbro Pulse website in limited quantities after the show."
I want this so damn badly, mainly for Zeo Gold, but the MMPR red is looking solid, and I love that he includes the combined blaster!
I definitely hope I can snag a set!
That's incredible for only $50. Absolutely gonna try and get it off Pulse. Hoping they don't fuck up and forget to make an order limit like they did with the Star Wars Celebration exclusives

That is a fantastic exclusive and a really good price for it too.
Really only want Zeo Gold though.. wonder what differences there would be with a retail one down the line. Probably a different civilian head?
"and come equipped with the Power Axe, Power Bow, Power Blades, Power Lance, and Power Sword (which can also join together to create a Power Blaster)."
It's not just a solid piece; it has actual functional combining?! o:
I love how this is a bit of shade throwing at Bandai regarding the weapons.
Some issues with the sculpt but those accessories are amazing.
Question when have power daggers ever been called power blades
Lightning Collection Gold definitely seems to be stronger than before.
My only concern here is that in comparison to the original wave, they might be throwing out all their big popular characters right out the gate. Zeo Gold, MMPR stuff... it means future waves will have a more varied selection, which I'm looking forward to; but won't be anywhere near as popular without this star power to sustain it and hence could lead to a bad future for the line.
