I really can't get over how I really dislike seeing the Yellow ranger as a buff male turtle, it weirds me out, and yet another pink ranger re-release how many is this now? the best part of this 2 pack is April's unhelmeted head, which looks like new bob haircut Scarlett.

 

looks like evangeline lilly to me, reuse of the Wasp head?

Just realized if all things are right about the listings, Blue & Black turtle rangers are Pack A, and Yellow & Pink are pack B, and so who is Pack C going to come with besides Red turtle ranger, if Green ranger shredder is a single packed fan channel? Casey Jones or something?

 

Just be patient man. I assure you Hasbro will deliver something nice for that line... They have a great team on board for the Power Rangers team...😀✌️

Hoping for Raph/Drakkon Shredder for last pack wooooof that would be tramend. cant wait for all these

Certainly a valid want, but I'm hoping, this being an iconic mash-up deal, they stick with the actual icons. No offense, but the Ranger comics are basically just glorified fan-fiction in my book.

I'm betting on a Raph vs. Zedd/Shredder set.

They look pretty cool, but what it ultimately does is making everyone wish for regular turtles in this scale, style and articulation, which would be kinda easy since they all have same body but I guess powers that be they won't allow this, or will they? I guess we have to wait and see.

Following the reveals eariler this week of the Power Rangers X Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Lightning Collection Morphed Donatello & Morphed Leonardo, Power Rangers X Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Lightning Collection Morphed April O'Neil & Morphed Michelangelo and Power Rangers X Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Lightning Collection Foot Soldier Tommy and Raphael Red, comes Shredder.

Shredder uses the power of the Tommy’s coin and morphs into a twisted, evil version of the Green Ranger.

This 6-inch Lightning Collection MMPR x TMNT Collab action figure features premium paint and decorative details inspired by the Boom! Comics crossover miniseries, with over 20 points of articulation for high poseability. Plus, swappable hands and a soft goods cloak for more ways to play or display.

You can pre-order these now at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com now.

Check back tomorrow for a new Hasbro Power Rangers Brand Team Live-Stream starting at 11am ET.

They look good with their helmets on, but unmasked they all look like they have different art style and it looks weird. Im also super confused, why is Tommy in this and why is he a foot soldier? Shouldnt there be like a casey doing some kind of swap like be a puddy or whatever?

These Power Ranger TMNT crossover toys aren't just a random crossover mash-up for the sake of cross-over mash-up like some of the other past TMNT crossover mash-up toys (aka Universal Monsters, Star Trek, Apollo 11). The figures were actually taken from a comic book crossover story between IDW's TMNT comics and Boom Studios' Power Rangers comics. So what mash-up figures they chose to make is in context to what happened within the comic story. Tommy went undercover and joined the Foot in an attempt to rescue/deprogram a childhood friend whom he learned had been radicalized to join the Foot. This leads to Shredder stealing the Green Morpher and teaming up with Rita Repulsa. Shredder ends up disconnecting the MMPR teens from their ability to transform via the Green Morpher, so the TMNT and April temporarily fill-in as Rangers till the problem could be fixed. Casey, Splinter, Karai, Rocksteady, Bebop and Baxter Stockman were also in the story, but stayed their normal selves. The only characters left that appeared within the comic story and could be considered mash-ups of both franchises (but aren't toys yet) are the five powerless MMPR teens (Jason, Trini, Zack, Billy, Kimberly) dressed as street ninjas and Baxter Stockman's experimental Foot Elite Putties (hybrids of Foot Soldiers forcibly merged with Putty Patroller clay).

So, we've come full circle. *LOL, sigh*

When this comic first debuted, I made the same joke as I am now:  They already did a MMPR/TMNT crossover.  It was called "Next Mutation," and it was HOT GARBAGE.
<P>
I hated it then, and I had no interest in the comic, but when the toys were first announced, I DID briefly wonder if my combined childhood-driven love of action figures and TMNT would supersede my teen-sourced LOATHING of MMPR.
<P>
After seeing the toys . . . I mean, they're fine, I guess, from a quality standpoint.  And I would enjoy having all of them in their regular colors, (Donnie in Purple, Mikey in Orange, April in Yellow) and ESPECIALLY this version of Shredder in a more traditional gray/blue/purple/silver/black deco, his design is actually kind of amazing.
<P>
BUT . . . as they are now, based on the comics . . . I find I am reacting to them the same way I did to "Next Mutation" 25 years ago.  Even a TMNT coat of paint is not enough for me to embrace the Super Sentai camp of MMPR.
<P>
All power to anyone who likes them.  They're cool toys.  But me, unless I can get them for a STEEP discount, and I custom paint them in classic TMNT colors . . . these looks, at these prices? Nope, can't do it. *chuckle*

Thank you for that clarification. Admittedly I was ignorant to what this was and assumed it was just a toyline crossover that had no reference. Good to know that it has a background and is derived from another source. Also thank you for that backstory, it makes these figures alot more interesting.
