Toys R Us Reveals Putty Patrol Action Figure From ‘Power Rangers’

The new design for Rita Repulsa’s Putty Patrol from the upcoming film reboot of Power Rangers has been revealed through a toy just like the Zords, Megazord, and Goldar. So far everything we have seen has been reimagined with an alien-like design for the new film which has swapped out the colorful campy tone for a darker, more mature take on the rangers. Rather than the monsters made from clay looking like stuntmen in gray suits, the new Putties look very much like actual monsters made from clay. I think the studio had the right intention behind the new look of the Putties but much like the new design for Goldar, the execution is poor.

As someone who grew up as a huge Power Rangers fan (I’m talking Halloween costumes, Power Rangers themed Birthday parties, the whole nine) I am beginning to temper my excitement for the release of the upcoming film. We are now just over two months away from the release of the film and all we have seen so far are posters and a teaser trailer, albeit an awesome teaser trailer that got everyone’s attention, we have still yet to see any shots from the film of the Rangers in action sporting their full suits as they take on the villains. With the lack of a new trailer during what felt like trailer week 2016 last month and the continued revealing of characters from the film through toys, I’m quickly beginning to lose confidence in the film Dean Israelite has helmed for Lionsgate.

Power Rangers hits theaters on March 24, 2017.

The film stars Dacre Montgomery as Jason Lee Scott (Red Ranger), RJ Cyler as Billy Cranston (Blue Ranger), Naomi Scott as Kimberly Hart (Pink Ranger), Becky G as Trini Kwan (Yellow Ranger), Ludi Lin as Zack Taylor (Black Ranger), Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, Bill Hader as Alpha 5, and Bryan Cranston as Zordon.

Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.

‘Power Rangers’ Official Teaser Trailer

Go Go Power Rangers. The first official trailer is here.

Go Go Power Rangers. The first official trailer is here and it actually looks good. As someone who grew up in the 90’s with the original series, I didn’t think this movie would appeal to me but the film seems to have struck a balance somewhere between the original series and Josh Trank’s Chronicle but definitely closer to the latter.

The trailer introduces us to the five social rejects who will become the ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ after discovering a great alien power outside of Angel Grove. While the bright and campy tone of the original series is not apparent in the trailer, the film seems to have carved out its own place within the franchise while reminding us with the music and martial arts that this is unquestionably Power Rangers.

Towards the end of the trailer we get a glimpse of Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) and a quick shot of Jason (Dacre Montgomery) beginning his metamorphosis into the Red Ranger inside what looks like it could be the rangers’ command center.
