If you haven’t blown all your money on fireworks this 4th of July, maybe consider setting some aside. Why? Because X-MEN and Power Ranger collectibles are about to hit shops on July 6th!

Over at Previews World, we saw that X-MEN’s Bishop and some of the original Power Rangers [the Mighty Morphin kind] are almost here. It’s a weird mashup of franchises to launch on the same day, but considering Bishop doesn’t shop up that often in Marvel’s merchandise lines, I’ll take it. The X-MAN from a dystopian future will arrive in our time in the form of a 12″ tall statue limited to 3,000 pieces. He’ll only set you back $250 unless your comic book shop is one of those who puts an extra 25-50% markup on things. Oh, you know the types of stores I’m talking about.

From a grim and distant future comes the X-Man out of time – Bishop! Formerly of Xavier’s Security Enforcers, Bishop is now the latest statue in the Marvel Premier Collection. Wielding a blaster and gathering up a charge in his other hand, the energy-absorbing mutant stands approximately 12 inches tall. Designed by Joe Allard, sculpted by Alejandro Pereira Ezcurra!

Yes, MiniMates are still around! I don’t know why I’m still surprised each time they pop up, though. Once these things littered the toy aisles of Target, now they pop up on one peg in the “collectors” section behind the electronics department. So who exactly are these things aimed at, and do they sell? Are they collectibles? MiniMates have always confused me.

If you’re a fan of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers and MiniMates, Diamond Select has a brand new 4-pack for you. Included are the original Pink, Blue, and Green Rangers along with the manic robot Alpha 5. The pack is priced at $29.99.

The final item DS will release on the 6th is a 10″ bust of the Mighty Morphin’ Red Ranger. This bust is $175 and is very limited, with only 1,000 pieces being made.
