2022 version of Hasbro Pulse Con Just around the corner, Hasbro has just revealed that Power Rangers will be joining the festivities with a special Power Rangers brand nameplate. Power Rangers will be joined by other brands such as Marvel, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, NERF, Fortnite, Start Lineup, Magic The Gathering, GI Joe, Transformers and Avalon Hill, and the event will take place on September 30 and October 1. The full schedule for the board hasn’t been revealed yet, so we’re not sure when the Power Rangers board will happen, but we’ll keep you posted when this information is released.
Hasbro recently revealed a few new additions to the Lightning Collection during Power Month, including Power Daggers, new monsters, and more Power Rangers characters that include Wild Force Blue, Time Force Blue with Vector Cycle, Ryu, and Chun-Li Power Rangers characters X Street Fighter, which appears to be part of a whole new line.

These numbers have been well received, so we’ll probably see some other additions to this line, and there are also two more strength morphs, including the Power Ax and the Power Bow. It’s also been confirmed that weapons will combine to form a Power Blaster, and the Power Sword is now shipping, so fans may be able to piece the Power Blaster together sooner rather than later.
We can also see the full reveal of the next addition to the Zord Ascension Project, which now includes the Dino Megazord and DragonZord. During a previous interview with the Hasbro Power Rangers, I asked John Warden what went into putting this new line together.
“Yeah. There’s a lot that went into it. I mean, ever since John and I and Joe and the team got together, doing the Megazords in a way that celebrated establishing what they were the right way was something we really wanted to do. We knew it had to be excellent. It had to be bespoke. It had to be transformed. That’s a big part of it. For me, as a mecha collector and giant robot fan for years and years and years, ever since I was a little kid in the ’80s, I grew up playing with some of the Bandai greats as many people have done as well as Transformers and Gobots And all of that stuff, I wanted to make sure this was wide and the scope was really, really important. I was looking at everything,” Warden said.
“When our team got together, we figured that having these guys at a scale of 1/44, and the distinct expression, but also having things that make it feel more real, things like a working cockpit and all the nuances that would make this look like the real thing and give that promise That if so, as we look to the future, others will be in range with the ones we launch,” Warden said. “Then, we talked about our branding team and our packaging team, about all this other deep stuff, like the origin. When they call the Zords, where do they go? The idea is that there’s this warehouse in the universe where these things go. You see, there’s going to be more that we’ll reveal. About him when we finally talk about the Megazord project or the Zord Ascension project. That’s just the tip of the iceberg or the excitement for this.”
Hasbro Pulse Con will take place on September 30 and October 1.
