12" Power Rangers - YELLOW RANGER!

Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers - 12" Series - Yellow Ranger - Hasbro 2021

Hasbro is pretty tricky with their non-collector toylines sometimes. When it comes to stuff like Marvel Legends and Power Rangers Lightning Collection, we usually know at least six months in advance exactly what we will find on the shelves. But every other line toyline that isn't geared toward us collectors  gets almost no promotion. I personally think this is thrilling. I love toy hunting, and I love being surprised. 12-inch "Titan-style" figure tend to be especially surprising. I remember discovering Spider-Girl, Quickshadow, and Cuddle Team Leader and being totally caught offguard at their very existence. This MMPR Yellow Ranger isn't quite the same scenario because after MMPR Pink was released last year, I figured would very likely get a Yellow. But I occasionally search for expected figures like this and this particular search always came up fruitless. But then two weeks ago I walked into a calendar store in the mall to check out their toy corner and boom! A gorgeous 12" Trini. Let's check her out below!

Yellow Ranger has a Ball-Jointed Head, Hinge-and-Swivel Shoulders and Hips, and Swivel Gloves/Forearms (her wrists and forearms are one solid piece, despite appearances)

Trini comes with her signature power daggers  that can connect to form a double-bladed bo staff.

Trini's hands are made a of a really flexible rubbery plastic which are great for grasping the weapons. She has the same hands as the MMPR Pink which seem specifically molded in that "vulcan" salute to notch Kimberly's arrows.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is MMPR Yellow with MMPR Pink.
