The upcoming reboot of Power Rangers features all new looks for the Rangers and Megazords that deviates far away from the colorful look of the original Fox Kids series to give us something darker and a bit more mature. The film still manages to stay true to its core with reimagined, yet familiar versions of the main characters but the visual aesthetics for the Rangers and their Megazord have a much more traditional Japanese influence compared to the original suits and Zords modeled after the dinosaur and prehistoric animal synonymous with each Rangers’ power coin.
Over the last month, several toys have been revealed giving us our first look at Jason’s Tyrannosaurus Zord along with his Power Sword as well as the fully assembled Megazord from the upcoming film. Today the rest of the toy Zords have been revealed showcasing the designs for the Blue Ranger’s Triceratops, The Black Rangers Mastodon, the Yellow Rangers Sabertooth Tiger, and the Pink Rangers Teradactyl. The designs are right in line with everything else we have seen from the film so far. A gray figure can also be seen in the photo for the Teradactyl Zord. Could this be our first look at the new Putty design?
While it doesn’t seem like it will be possible to assemble to the individual Zords together to create the Megazord, a separate Megazord toy which happens to be very large will be hitting shelves this holiday season.
Power Rangers stars Dacre Montgomery as Jason Lee Scott (Red Ranger), RJ Cyler as Billy Cranston (Blue Ranger), Naomi Scott as Kimberly Hart (Pink Ranger), Becky G as Trini Kwan (Yellow Ranger), Ludi Lin as Zack Taylor (Black Ranger), Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, Bryan Cranston as Zordon, and Bill Hader as Alpha 5.
