Creative production company, iam8bit, announced a new line of artist-designed Power Rangers merchandise, including enamel pins and a remastered vinyl soundtrack.


iam8bit announced their partnership with Saban Brands to create new officially licensed merchandise only available through iam8bit.

The first is a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers screen print by illustrator, JC Richard. Measuring at 36 by 12 inches and priced at $60, this hand-pulled screen print is printed on acid-free archival quality paper and limited to 350 pieces. Richard’s previous work can be found in galleries such as Hero Complex Gallery and from companies such as Disney and MONDO.

Richard’s screen print design is also invoked in the album art for the special remastered single LP vinyl. Titled “The OG Soundtrack”, the album contains the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers iconic theme song by Ron Wasserman and some featured tracks from the first two seasons of the series. The vinyl record itself is printed with a “Rainbow Ranger Splatter” design. The album is priced at $25.

iam8bit’s Power Rangers collection also includes limited-edition enamel pins at $10 each. These are 1.5 inch pins designed by artist, Andrew Kolb. It features all six of the Power Rangers cast, which includes the Green and White Ranger designs as well as Rita Repulsa. Kolb’s work can also be found at MONDO and comics variant covers such as Cartoon Network’s IDW comics.

However, customers cannot select which of the Ranger designs they would like as each are randomly distributed. Customers must buy the complete set of all seven, which will also include the Rita Repulsa pin for a total of eight pins, as noted:

These exclusive collectible pins were designed by artist Andrew Kolb, featuring all six RANGER helmets and super-villain, RITA REPULSA.

But there’s a catch:

Rangers are RANDOMLY distributed to customers, unless a set of ALL SEVEN is purchased. Purchasing a complete set will score you the ultra rare RITA REPULSA pin.

Please note: if buying more than one but fewer than seven pins, we’ll always send different rangers – no duplicates, we promise!

QUALITY CONSTRUCTION!

This 1.5″ Hard Enamel pin is manufactured to the highest Collector Quality level. Made from combination of copper, brass alloy metal and hand-filled color enamel, the pins are 2mm thick, which makes them exceedingly durable. After manufacturing, each pin is hand polished to bring out a smooth, glossy shine.

Additional products from the iam8bit Power Rangers collection include a coloring / activity book, gift-wrapping paper, and a set of Ranger-colored pencils.

All products from this collection is available for pre-order starting at Friday, November 4th 2016 at 9:00am PST. The pre-orders’ estimated arrival is early December.

iam8bit was founded in 2005 and partnered with companies such as HBO, Nintendo, Playstation, Disney, and Warner Bros. to create a variety of productions such as films, TV spots, commercials, as well as regular art exhibits in their Los Angeles-based gallery.
