October 10, 2018

Detailed New Renderings Of The Transformable Robot/Spaceships Featured In The “Power Rangers In Space” TV Series Set For Release In Spring 2019; Pre-Orders From Authorized Bluefin Retailers Open Now

 

Anaheim, CA, October 10, 2018 – Bluefin, the leading North American distributor of toys, collectibles, and hobby merchandise from Japan and Asia, opens pre-orders for a pair of new Bandai Shokugan Power Rangers Mini-Pla model kits – the Astro and Delta Megazords.

 

Scheduled for retail release in May 2019, the new, easy-to-assemble model kits each depict a faithful rendering of the transformable robot/spaceships that were featured in Power Rangers In Space, the 6th season of the venerable live-action sci-fi action series.

 

The Bandai Shokugan Astro and Delta Megazords will be available from authorized Bluefin retailers nationwide and also from a variety of leading online outlets. Pre-orders are available now. MSRP for each kit will be $42.00. Bluefin is the official North American master distributor for Bandai Shokugan.

 

As the Super Mini-Pla name implies, these compact model kits offer simple pre-colored snap-together assembly. A nipper or sprue cutter (sold separately) is highly recommended for assembly, but the following kits do not require glue.

The Astro Megaship served as the base and primary Megazord for the Space Rangers depicted in Power Rangers In Space. It would later become the Galaxy Rangers’ base of operations. The completed kit can easily transform from the Megaship/Megashuttle form into robot form. The Astro Megazord also may be combined with the Delta Megzaord to form the mighty Astro Delta Megazord.

The Delta Megaship is the second Megaship Zord of the Red Space Ranger from the Power Rangers In Space TV Series. It was controlled remotely by the Red Space Ranger’s Battilizer Gauntlet. The completed kit can easily transform from the Megaship/Megashuttle form into robot form. The Delta Megazord also may be combined with the Astro Megzaord to form the mighty Astro Delta Megazord.

 

Power Rangers fans and collectors are invited to enjoy a wide array of Power Rangers Super Mini-Pla model kits from Bandai Shokugan that are available from Bluefin. Currently released kits include the Megazord Super Mini-Pla Set, Dragonzord Super Mini-Pla Kit, and Titanus Super Mini Pla Kit.

 

The correction is for the release date for these products – which is set for March 2019 – NOT May 2019 as was originally stated.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
