Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: Master Vile

This is the 3rd Power Rangers post of 4 that I have planned.  Again this is one of my little brothers toys from his childhood.  And again I know nothing of this character so I'll just be describing my thoughts on this figure.


This is Master Vile.  What I want to know though is what is so vile about him?  Is this even a "him"?  And can you even classify this as an action figure?  I mean, where are the arms and legs?  This is a big chunk of hollow plastic.  Like the other Power Ranger villains I've previously looked at, Master Vile features a little gimmick.  See that gold ball on his chest?  When you roll it like a track ball (remember Centipede?) the head spins around in circles.  What the heck?  I don't get it.  Can someone please explain this goofy character to me?  He also comes with a gold staff like weapon.  I'm guessing he's some sort of wizard or magician.  Don't know...don't really care.  Man these Power Ranger characters are down right goofy.  What on earth did my little bro see in these?!  One more Power Rangers review and that's it...I promise!

  1. You may find Master Vile's character even more confusing. Master Vile, a villain, is Rita Repulsa and Rito Revolto's father. I too have no idea how that is physically possible.

    He is a sorcerer and a few of his abilities include teleport from one place to another, firing energy blasts from that gold scepter, casting various spells, and spitting out eggs that will hatch all kinds of monsters.

    The spinning head gimmick seems like something just made up by the toy creators. I do not remember seeing his head spin in circles ever on the show.
