Power Rangers - ZEO PINK!

Power Rangers Lightning Collection - Pink Ranger 2-Pack - Hasbro 2021

I never really watched much Power Rangers. When Mighty Morphin Power Rangers debuted in the US, I was in high school and my only real exposure was my best friend's little brother who was obsessed (and was also insistent I looked just like Tommy the Green Ranger - I did not). But I was aware of the property and I loved seeing the flip-action morphin' toys at Walmart (a gimmick I hadn't seen since TigerSharks). Then about five years ago I started watching Dino Charge and really enjoyed it. But everything in between is a blur of pink and yellow that I have trouble keeping straight. My only exposure to all these chapters of Power Rangers is the toys. The Zeo toys always stood out to me because of their intricate gold adornments. There is something ancient and historic about the design that you don't see in other Ranger lineups. Plus the masks with their bold visor shapes and non-silver lip sculpt remind me of the first Sentai series Himitsu Sentai Gorenger from 1975. Let's check out Zeo Pink below!

Katherine "Kat" Hillard is one of the rare Rangers who plays different roles across several seasons. She was the second MMPR Pink (after Kimberly left the show) and then continued as Zeo Pink in Power Rangers Zeo. This Pulse exclusive 2-Pack features both versions of Kat with different hairsculpts.

Zeo Pink has an alternate unmasked head, a laser pistol, a power pod sword, a blue ricochet effect, two sets of hands, and her signature shield.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Zeo Pink with Zeo Yellow.

And with the 2018 Legacy figure from Bandai.

And here she is with her pack-mate, MMPR Pink (also Kat).

And here are some of my Lightning Collection Pink Rangers together.
