Earlier this month, Hasbro announced that the Power Rangers Lightning Collection will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of “The Wedding.” For those unaware, “The Wedding” is a 3-part episode arc in Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers season 2! In this multi-part event, Rita Repulsa returns and places a love spell on Lord Zedd, who immediately marries her. This unholy union lead to them becoming a major issue for the Power Rangers, until the Machine Empire arrived…
Now, Hasbro intends to celebrate “The Wedding” through 6-inch Lightning Collection figures; these figures are obviously being based on Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa. First, the Lord Zedd is a re-issue of the original Wave 1 release, but features new paint applications. Whereas, Rita Repulsa is an all-new character within the line, which will also be the figure to incorporate cloth attire. In addition, the entire set will feature wedding accessories like the cake, and bouquet. Nevertheless, we have the official reveal trailer, image gallery and description for this set below:
