SH Figuarts Pink Ranger Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Announced!

As a rule, I hate pink. Like–hate pink. But there’s a couple things that that doesn’t apply to, including My Little Pony Pinkie Pie, Jem of Jem and the Holograms, and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Pink Ranger (Kimberly). And if even I like the Pink Power Ranger, you know she must be good! Bandai seems to know that as well, as they surprised collectors this morning with the sudden announcement of the S.H. Figuarts Pink Ranger Mighty Morphin Power Rangers figure!

S.H. Figuarts Pink Ranger Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Bandai Figure

Just as you’d hope, the SH Figuarts Pink Ranger Bandai figure has an extra added rubber skirt to make the figure authentic. The Pink Ranger skirt is most likely made of a soft, flexible plastic so that it won’t inhibit articulation at all. I actually did see a few people who were worried that Bandai was going to cheap out and just make the S.H. Figuarts Pink Ranger figure a repaint of the MMPR Red Ranger or something with no additions at all, but that was never a concern of mine. Bandai makes expensive, high-end action figures in the SH Figuarts Mighty Morphin Power Rangers line–they were never going to cut corners in that manner.

Bandai Pink Ranger Mighty Morphin Power Rangers SH FiguartsKimberly Hart, the original Pink Ranger, is one of the most beloved Mighty Morphin Power Rangers characters ever. She was the heart of the original MMPR team for three years, and is famous for her athletic abilities and her romantic relationship with Tommy (the Green Ranger and later White Ranger).

Now that we’re up to four of the seven original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers SH Figuarts figures, I think there’s little doubt that Bandai intends to finish the line (especially considering that Bandai already cooked up prototypes for the SH Figuarts Blue Ranger, Black Ranger, and Yellow Ranger a while ago).
