Since the moment we heard from a Bandai America Rep that a Poisandra figure may not be released in either of the Dino Charge lines I got to thinking about not only Female Villain representation in the Bandai America lines, but also the representation of the Female Rangers and Allies.
Over the years since MMPR we’ve lost a lot of the focus on the Female viewers of the show as you will see in this look-back at the standard Female Figures and the Figures we never saw.
You will notice that after MMPR’s focus on girl-related items began to dwindle, but suddenly saw a resurgence during Samurai – Super Samurai.
Let’s go back and look at the Female Figure representation in each season and you can judge for yourself how neglected Women are in this toy line series.
*for the purposes of this article, only Action Figures of the standard size (and their slight variations) will be discussed. As such, only figures released during their specific seasons are only discussed, unless otherwise stated.*
Mighty Morphin’ saw a massive release of Female Ranger figures as well as an unprecedented representation of Girls toys and playsets.
Besides MMPR Season 1, the Female Rangers got Thunder and Shark Cycles! Auto-Morphin Figures for not only Kimberly and Trini but Aisha as well. They received Auto Morphin and Standard Metallix Figures AND even Delphine and her Battle Borg got figures released!
