Easter Bunny Meets New Basket Buddies w/ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
March 29, 2010

Easter is just around the corner and parents are looking to rev up their kids’ baskets with a morph-tastic gift alongside those chocolate bunnies. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers from Bandai America Incorporated can help parents “power up” baskets and keep kids entertained long after the Easter egg hunts are over. The value-packed toys offer multiple ways to play, enhancing the creativity and imagination of playtime experiences.

Easter baskets will be action-packed with the inclusion of any one of the following Mighty Morphin Power Rangers toys:

·        Mix & Morph Base ($14.99 SRP) – The Mini Mix & Morph Base fits perfectly in any Easter basket and is portable enough for kids to carry with them on their Easter egg hunt. This value-packed set includes a Mini Base, two figures, and one key. The included figures have detachable limbs and torsos that kids can mix and morph to create their own unique Ranger or Megazord. Children can collect additional Rangers and Megazords to create hundreds of figures.


·        Dino Megazord ($24.99 SRP) – Kids can spend their spring holiday mixing and matching five morphable Zords or combine them into the Dino Megazord from the TV show! The Dino Megazord includes Tyrannosaurus, Mastodon, Sabertooth Tiger, Pterodactyl and Triceratops Dinozords.  Kids can collect and combine with the Vehicle Zord System to create their own larger Megazord.


·        Zord Vehicles ($9.99 SRP) – Rev up kids’ holiday with Zord Vehicles that each have their own unique morphin’ action and include a 4” articulated Ranger. Collect and combine two or three different vehicles (Dino Cyles or Morphin Racers) or collect five vehicles to combine into the Ultimate Megazord (each sold separately).

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.
