Beast Morphers - 12" YELLOW RANGER!

Power Rangers Beast Morphers - 12" Action Figure - Yellow Ranger - Hasbro 2019

I was nervous when word hit that Hasbro had usurped the Power Rangers license from Bandai. I don't doubt Hasbro's ability to create quality product, but I had become accustomed to the various figure lines Bandai would roll out with each new Power Rangers team. And we had only just started getting 12" figures with Dino Charge so I was afraid the torch wouldn't be carried. But sure enough, Hasbro knows the marketability of this scale with the success of their Marvel Titan Hero Series and we saw 12" Ranger and villain figures right away. My big hope now is that they show a little more commitment to the female characters than Bandai did. There aren't many marketable characters in Beast Morphers, so it will be an interesting test to see if they produce the second female, Cybervillain Roxy. So far she seems like the only one missing. Despite my feelings about the designs of the Beast Morphers Rangers (I think they look boring), I am really happy to have this 12" Yellow Ranger. I think it's a good sign of things to come.
























Beast Morpher Yellow has a ball-jointed head, hinge-and-swivel shoulders, hinge hips, and swivel wrists (the wrists were a surprise).





She comes with a blaster gun.

















Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!


Here she is with her 6" Version.




And with two other large-scale rangers: Dino Charge Pink and Power Rangers Movie Pink, both from Bandai. The Hasbro one is a noticeably smaller scale.




And finally with two recent Hasbro 12" figures: Black Widow and Captain Marvel. It's clear that Hasbro wants a similar scale across all their properties.




Cheers!
