Toy News: Democracy in Action

Allow me to change up the site title for the sake of this article: No Pink Spandex.

Okay, much better.  We should avoid contradictions if at all possible.  The internet is serious business after all.

In October of last year, Bandai left it up to the fans and/or readers of ToyFare magazine to choose the subject for the next line of chase figures.  Issue #141 listed the options as the original Pink Ranger, Red Zeo Ranger, Solaris Knight, Blue Dino Ranger and Omega Ranger.

The original Pink Ranger got 1,838 votes to Red Zeo Ranger’s 792.  It is truly a testament to the fanbase’s desire to see a girl in pink spandex and a fairly lousy selection of other choices appreciation of good design and a positive female role model.

I’ll admit, I voted for her through the ToyFare website (Sorry, Lisa).

I voted for her. I was sick and tired of the girls constantly being ignored. Red ranger this, red ranger that.

I vote for pink too. We need more girls, I’m tired of seeing the guys get all the toys and the power ups.
