To be fair, they probably dodged a bullet with Ranger Slayer. The artwork of that 'Kimberly' looks nothing like AJJ either. Perhaps it was a rights issue.

She's drawn as a generic ginger with an antifa haircut.

I believe Drakkon got the JDF headsculpt because they had the live action footage as reference.

I think its a much better headsculpt than the original, but yeah...chin is slightly too big. Honestly it fits right in at this point as most of the decent female sculpts are all a teeny bit off. Like you can see the actresses in most of them but also could use them as a generic civilian in another line. I'm happy enough with it as the original was a tough pill to swallow.

The headband is an interesting dilemma though. I display with helmets off and since this is so much nice than MMPR, I will probably use this as my Kimberly...but I don't really want to use Kat in MMPR because I think the Zeo uniform came out beautifully. Maybe April will keep the spot...

Honestly, the Trini and Aisha headsculpts are great. For whatever reason, they can't get AJJ right.

That being said, they'll probably release new versions of the core MMPRs by 2023, for the 30th anniversary. There will be another Kimberly attempt soon enough.

Also, rumors are circulating that Wave 11 might be;
Dino Fury Red
Dino Charge Pink
WF Lunar Wolf Ranger
Unknown Machine Empire figure from Zeo

Interesting on Pink Dino Charge - Shelby is gorgeous but I'm surprised we aren't getting purple first just because she's got such a unique costume color and would really stand out on a shelf. Plus Hasbro's got it down when it comes to producing glasses now (Baroness in Joe, etc).

Well, nothing's confirmed. Take this all with a grain of salt. It's coming from Josh/LightningFigPR. But he's been accurate with the past leaks.

In addition to those figures rumored, he's also hinting the following figures are on deck;

Lost Galaxy Green
Wild Force Blue
Dino Thunder Yellow
An Unknown version of MMPR Black (hopefully Sentry)
Dino Charge Blue
Dino Fury Green
BM Yellow
Wild Force Jindrax
Wild Force Red with Cycle
Space Blue with Glider
Time Force Green with Cycle

We'll see what comes to light in the next few days.

I really hope all of this is true, especially Wild Force Red. One of my favorite suits.

Also FINALLY another Time Force ranger.

Yeah, it's a shame Time Force was ignored in 2021. They missed the 20th anniversary.

Time Force Green is a big yes.
We’re finally getting BM Yellow according to this rumor. That’s also great.

In previous years, I would have liked this lineup.

But realistically... these three waves could literally take us into Q1 2023, at the rate that PR Lightning is delayed.

At least half of next year's releases are going to be items announced this year (going into the spring).

I hope most of those rumored releases are true. Not seeing any new variations of MMPR gets me excited, especially if stuff like Dino Fury Red and the Wild Force figures end up being real.

Disappointed that they never bothered with Quantum Ranger.

Some more potential leaks.

MMPR Red Sword

Drakkon Helmet

Zedd Mask/Helmet (wtf but okay)

And along with that rumored Lightning Dragonzord, they're doing a Lightning MMPR Megazord.


Also a Red repaint of Ecliptor, as a solo release.
