Anyone worried about the Venus listing and/or thinking these are related to the Next Mutation/In Space crossover and not the MMPR/TMNT comic crossover I can set your mind at ease. The listing isn't the TMNT character of Venus from Next Mutation. Hasbro likes to use code speak for their Lightning Collection figures so leaked releases aren't easily known. Based on past releases the Ranger fandom discovered it was deduced that A SQD is code for A Squad, Venus is the code word for Yellow and Jupiter is the code word for Red. So in other words the Venus and Jupiter listings are for the Power Rangers SPD villains A Squad Yellow Ranger and A Squad Red Ranger. They have nothing to do with TMNT Power Ranger crossover figures.

why would only 2 figures be in code? and why would they code only the color for more a-squad. just putting a-squad already would tell us who it was. if venus and jupiter are code then shredder would be too right? by your logic tmnt is just a code name too. could be deciphered to be 2 packs from something like samurai or megaforce.

i really do hope youre right about more a-squad figs though, especially the red ranger finally getting made.

No clue why they didn't bother to code the TMNT stuff better. As for logic, I'm not really doing any guessing on my part. I'm just stating what is listed in the Power Ranger fan communities. The code words were deciphered using known past Power Ranger toy releases cross compared to corresponding past coded listings found for Power Rangers. All the listings were harvested as is from a store's in store computer for upcoming product by store employees who are also Power Ranger fans. The reason you got a mix of normal Power Ranger releases in addition to TMNT/MMPR crossover stuff is because the fans/employees that listed the list were looking for new Power Ranger listings as a whole.

not a single figure you and your "employee fans" "deciphered" has ever had a release before. ever. in any line. a-squad red and a-squad yellow have never had a figure. there has never been a single tmnt figure ever released in a power rangers line either. so if the codes match a previous release then how can it be a never released figure?

and yet these normal releases are only 2 of the figures? so wave 10 is just 2 figures? thats what you and your "fans/employees" have "deciphered" for us? lol you shouldve just stuck with the guessing story from your original post, its way more believable.

I think you are misunderstanding what that list in the previous link is. The list in the link is for "upcoming" Power Rangers figure release stuff that has been found in the computer system, but has yet to officially be released or announced with their code words partially deciphered as to what they should be (based on the code words used for past released figures). The past released figures from which the codes were deciphered from are the actual figures you can currently find in store now or were just recently officially announced on Hasbro Pulse. Figures such as King Sphinx, Pumpkin Rapper, Tenga Warrior, Z Putty Patroller, In Space Red Ranger vs. Astronema 2 Pack, SPD B-Squad Blue Ranger vs SPD A-Squad Blue Ranger 2 Pack, etc.  This link is the current code system Hasbro are using. Here were the code words that were being used for the upcoming Wave 9, which was just recently announced on Hasbro Pulse.

i understand perfectly, youre not understanding that there will not be a wave releasing with only 2 figures in it. no way is wave 10 only gonna be a-squad red and a-squad yellow like youre trying to convince us. and in your "lists" every figure has a code name. so if hasbro codes every figure the same way, as youre saying they do, then "fan boom shredder" would be code as well. and the tmnt 2 packs also.

so basically you joined this site just to come here and try to generate traffic to your own website via shady word links, with claims of being part of an "employee power ranger fan" network that knows every release before hasbro. if your english wasnt so good id swear you were a bot.

can you guys chill. Its ok to discuss things without even agreeing. It doesnt need to be an argument. There are a lot of unknowns here at this time, so I think its best we just wait and see whats what without fighting over it.

I'm well aware Waves usually come in sets of four. There are multiple possibilities for why only two non TMNT listings could be there. The employees looking into these computer systems are only looking for new items that have not yet been discovered and added to the bigger master list of unreleased items. Its possible the other figures in the Wave were discovered previously and were already on the bigger list, thus they didn't bother to relist them. There is a fair amount of stuff on that bigger list after all. Another possibility is one or more of the figures in this Wave with these A-Squad figures could be a re-release of an already released figure. For the longest time one of the previous Waves (the one that came out at the same time as Pumpkin Rapper and King Sphinx) had only three new figure listings. Turns out the reason why the Ranger fandom couldn't find the remaining figure was because the fourth figure in that Wave turned out to be a re-release of MMPR White Ranger (whose previous release was way back in the very first Wave release with Lord Zedd). At the moment we also don't know how that Boom Shredder is to be released given its a single figure. Unlike the TMNT 2 Packs it is possible it is considered part of the Wave with those A-Squad figures.

With the code listings, its not an exact science and its an ever evolving thing. Even the Power Ranger fandom aren't 100% certain on everything. While the codes for the most part are consistent, there are some outliers. The Z Putty listing had Zth in it, which pointed to Zeo as all the past Zeo Ranger figure releases used Zth as the team code. For the longest time until it was officially announced as a Z Putty (which is MMPR) it was thought that the figure may have been a Cog. Hasbro seems to be the most inconsistent with the code stuff when it comes to things that aren't normal Ranger figures, like foot soldiers, monsters, villains and this TMNT stuff like Boom Shredder. I think the code listing for Pumpkin Rapper was something like Milky Way. Yet if you look at the list of upcoming stuff it just states Eye Guy and Pirhantishead for two of the releases (which is just straight up actual monsters' names from MMPR, no code). So could TMNT or Boom Shredder be code for something else. Its certainly in the realm of possibilities. I'm more inclined to believe those listings however are more on the nose and exactly what the listings imply they are.

As for jumping the gun DrLava to believing that I'm here for nefarious reasons like trying to generate traffic to a website that I own, that is hardly the case. I am merely a fan of Power Rangers and also a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan, though I typically hang out more in the Power Ranger circles as I'm more casual when it comes to TMNT. I found this forum after hearing of the PowerRanger/TMNT crossover figures and decided to do a TMNT search for TMNT message boards to see what the TMNT fandom thought of the crossover figures after hearing how excited the Power Ranger community were for the figures. My contribution to this thread was simply intended to be helpful, nothing more or less. Seeing some of the speculation going on in this forum about these figures, particularly the non TMNT listings, and having some unique incites from Power Rangers side of thing (like knowledge of the code decipher from the Power Ranger fandom) I only wished to privy you and your fellow TMNT fans with those incites. My link listings was merely me showing tangible evidence that I wasn't just pulling random nonsense from my butt with the code stuff, but that there was tangible listings by the Power Ranger fandom backing my claims. I have no direct affiliation or ownership to any Power Ranger website, thus I would have no motive to specifically generate traffic to said site.

I can't speak on the behalf of DrLava in terms of the matter JayC, but from my end I'd have to say that I've been pretty cordial and chill all things considering. DrLava has every right to be skeptical of me given my newness here. I am merely trying to clear up any of those misconceptions he may have of me and clarify any ambiguities he may perceive in the information I've presented. All things considering I think the discussion has been very conducive. If nothing else, other members in this TMNT community may find the information I've presented as informative.
