Power Rangers - DINO FURY GREEN!

Power Rangers Dino Fury - Rip 'n Go Sabertooth Battle Rider - Hasbro 2021

It seems that lately the inclusion of female characters in the Power Rangers toy lines has greatly improved. The Lightning Collection in particular doesn't shy away from producing lots of female figures, often with a few variations included. But one area that is always lacking is the non-collector figures and vehicle packs. These assortments almost always exclude any female rangers. How many times have we seen zords, motorcycles, armor packs, and role playing items made only for Red, Blue, and Black Rangers? I can't even count. This small Dino Fury Green Ranger figure is the first female ranger toy outside of the main figure assortments in recent memory I can think of. It's especially nice because she's unique in the fact that she's a Green Ranger (a role usually filled by a male character), and she's also one of the few LGBTQ+ characters in the whole Power Rangers franchise. I also just read that she's getting a 12" figure later this year. Times are a' changin!  Let's check out Dino Fury Green below!

Green Ranger has only 5 points of articulation: Swivel Arms, Leg, and a Ball-Jointed Head.

One of my favorite Rangers scenes, when Izzy rips off her shirt in the middle of battle. Iconic.

Izzy's vehicle is a Rip 'n Go Sabertooth Battle Rider.  
The action feature happens when you put the big key in the back of the cycle and forcibly pull apart the key like a pair of scissors. The friction is supposed to force the cycle forward. It's doesn't seem to work super great.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with her figure from the Amazon Exclusive 5-pack.
