Trent the White Dino Thunder Ranger joins the list of various Power Rangers Lightning Collection figures that have leaked before Hasbro has even officially announced them to the public.
The Omega Ranger, Putty Two-Pack, and White Dino Thunder Ranger figures have all been found at some retailers in Malaysia. The latter of which still hasn’t even been officially announced by Hasbro.
While it does seem that overall the paint job on this new figure will be an improvement over Bandai’s Legacy figure the paint job on the helmet is definitely a point of concern for fans.
Hasbro Disappoints on it’s Latest Power Rangers Lightning Collection Release
It’s no secret that Hasbro has had some paint issues in the past when it comes to some of their Lightning Collection figures. The difference here is that most of the time they are a minor imperfection that is on a case by case basis. This helmet issue seems like will be present on every single Dino Thunder White figure made available for purchase.
A fan who has already gotten their hands on the figure has even taken it upon themselves to fix the paint job with a marker. Yes I said a marker.
So this of course begs the question, if a fan was able to do this in the comfort of their own home, how come Hasbro wasn’t able to do this in their multi-million dollar factories.
Of course it is important to note that these are just $20 figures. However, fans have come to know the Lightning Collection as a quality line of figures so it’s pretty disappointing for fans to see Hasbro arguably cop out on this figure.
There is currently no known release date for the White Dino Thunder Lightning Collection figure.
