The Original Red Ranger Gets The S.H. Figuarts Treatment In September
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers celebrated its 25th anniversary last year, but its Super Sentai source material from Japan is set to hit an even bigger milestone next year as Shotaro Ishinimori‘s Himitsu Sentai Gorenger turns 40. Fans won’t have to wait to celebrate, however, as Bandia will release the series’ uncommonly athletic leader Akarenger (Red Ranger) in S.H. Figuarts action figure form this September.
Standing approximately 6″ tall, the upcoming Akarenger figure will come packed with his Red Bute (in both whip and spear forms), Silver Shot pistol, throwable Birdies and a grenade for a proper “Gorenger Storm” group attack.
Bandai’s listed the figure for preorder for ¥4,860 (about $47.75 USD), but North American distributor Bluefin Tamashii Nations has confirmed the figure will be available domestically, with specific release details forthcoming. It’s safe to assume the figure will follow the Japan release by about a month for around $45 or so.
