Super7 ReAction - SCORPINA!

ReAction Action Figures - Power Rangers Wave 2 - Scorpina - Super7 2021

I don't think any single ReAction figure I've seen so far exemplifies the potential of the line more than this Scorpina. For a character who I personally feel has the most interesting and unique design of the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers show, she has has shockingly little merchandise produced. And despite her recently getting a nearly perfect Lightning Collection figure last year, I think this small retro-styled figure from Super7 is my favorite. Her complex asymmetrical organic costume somehow works extremely well with a simple 5-point body construction and the mix of flat colors and metallics really pops. When I look back to one of my first ReAction purchases, the MOTU Sorceress, (irregular sculpting, bad paint, awkward posture) and it's hard to believe these are from the same line. Most of the modern figures are great, but have simplistic designs by nature (G.I. Joe, ThunderCats, etc) so I focus on Scorpina as an example of how Super7 handles complexity. And they kill it. Let's check her out below!

I thought Scorpina had interesting leg articulation. The majority of ReAction figures have T-crotch articulation, but Scorpina has an angled V-crotch cut. Although looking back, I can see that Teela, Evil Lyn, and Cheetara have the same leg design (although I counted more than 25 in my collection that did not, so my surprise still stands).

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are the MMPR ReAction ladies so far: Pink Ranger, Scorpina, and Rita Repulsa.
(Yellow Ranger coming soon!)

And here is my Scorpina collection: Lightning Collection, ReAction, Imaginext, and Pint-Size Hero.
