A Better Look at the Putties and Rangers Figures of Saban's Power Rangers

01.03.2017

For better or worse, fans of Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are about to experience a re-imagining of the mega-popular 90s franchise via a brand-new POWER RANGERS movie from Lionsgate and Saban Films. Since the announcement of the multi-colored and multi-cultural teens making their return to the big screen began, the internet has been on fire with cheers, jeers, and speculation as to design choices for characters like Rita Rupulsa (Elizabeth Banks), Goldar, and others for the 2017 reboot. Today, thanks to Toys “R” Us, we’ve been given a better look at the Putties (Rita’s capering minion horde) as well as a first-look at the 7” fliphead figures from Bandai.

Judging from what I can see in the photos, it appears as if the Putties will forgo the bumbling “mime-from-Hell” motif (yes, I’m aware that the Putties make use of their vocal chords) for something more akin to that of anthropomorphic construction site materials. While different, I think it’s cool that the Putties look as they’re formed by matter and objects littered around the area of battle as opposed to just teleporting in from wherever. Here’s hoping that their bulk and sharp, protruding parts will present them as a more menacing adversary for the Rangers - instead of the one-punch-and-done nuisances they’ve been in past incarnations.

Expected for a February release, the fliphead figures will include Dacre Montgomery's Jason and Ludi Lin's Zack. And because these are “fliphead” figures, boys and girls of every age will be able to switch between the character’s Ranger and civilian appearances.

POWER RANGERS will be morphing its way into theaters on March 24, 2017.

My god

Have action figure companies still not figured out that doing that head switch thing makes the shoulders to wide and the figure look ridiculous? If they haven'r solved that yet they should give it up. Would removable masks really have cost more in material?

Excited for this, but disappointed at the appearance at Goldar the most, since I was hoping he would look a bit more barbaric instead of the melting brick of butter they released a while ago.

Putty's I'm sure will look better in the final product.

Putty's actually look interesting, but will be CGI shit for sure

The toys look horrible though, especially the rangers. They look like fuckin mexican knockoffs with zero detail and just a monotone paint job.

Those are from the 90s and look 10x better than these ugly things.

They actually look pretty much the same, tbh. I think you need to take the nostalgia glasses off to see the similarities though

Um how can you look at these new toys and say it looks anywhere near the same as the old ones. I was just using the old ones as a reference to the actual use of more than one fucking color.

Throwing it out there, but these toys look like shit. I swear to god, the quality of toys have only gone down as I've gotten older.
