Today we will be taking a look at Lord Drakkon from the Power Rangers Lightning Collection. For any who don’t know who Lord Drakkon is, he serves as the main antagonist in the Shattered Grid arc of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic books by Boom! Studios. He is a sinister and older version of Tommy Oliver from an alternate reality where he rules his Earth with an iron fist from a dystopian and futuristic Angel Grove where he is in total control. The Lightning Collection is the new adult collector line from Hasbro. Hasbro took over the Power Rangers line from Bandai this year. This new Lightning Collection line should fit in nicely with the Marvel Legends and Star Wars Black Series since they are all now made by Hasbro.
PACKAGING: Before we open this up, let's take a look at the packaging.
Lord Drakkon comes in what is to be the standard box for this new Lightning Collection by Hasbro. It’s a nice rectangle-style box. Lord Drakkon is displayed clearly in the middle with all his accessories. To the right is some artwork of Lord Drakkon. Below we have the Power Rangers Lightning Collection logo along with the name of the figure. Turning the box around we see that the artwork from the front of the box is wrapping around to this side. The back of the box only shows the promo picture for the figure. This line does not show any other figures from the line nor a bio for the figure. Turning the box around one more time we see we have another look at that same artwork from the front.
OUTSIDE OF THE BOX: Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.
Taking Lord Drakkon out of the box we get a good look at all these figures. The figure looks really well done and looks like he came right out of the comic book.
