It’s Morphin time! We don’t know yet exactly what the new Power Ranger movie zords are going to look like in action, but we do know the originals from the TV show very well. Now, using Bandai‘s proprietary Soul of Chogokin engineering style for diecast toys, they’re back as totally metal vehicles that combine to make both larger forms of the Megazord: robot and Beast Tank Dino Tanker (yes, that’s what the tank form is properly called. Though the first one of you to claim that was your nickname in high school wins a virtual cookie*).
(*virtual cookie offer non-binding; virtual cookies are both imaginary awards and figures of speech.)
The robot form stands over ten inches tall, while each individual prehistoric-styled mechanical vehicle is fully articulated and playable as a separate piece. Available now for preorder, with delivery expected in May, the combined set retails from authorized Bluefin retailers (including some Barnes and Noble stores!) and your favorite online collector-toy outlets for around $299.99.
So grow, savings, grow! Get my bank balance as huge as Rita’s monsters so I can pick this sucker up! You might say I’m like putty in Bandai’s hands. Check out the full gallery below to see what kind of action poses the zords can get up to, then clear out an “abandoned warehouse district” in your toy room to make way for the epic battles to follow.
Do you need this Megazord power now? Do you want all your friends to eye-yai-yai your collection? It’s commentin’ time!
