Estimated release date – December 2016
I’m a little late to the party, but just recently announced were a few of the new toys that are going to be launching with the new Power Rangers film coming out in 2017. As of right now we have the new Morpher with 5 coins, the Red Ranger sword, and the T-Rex Zord with Red Ranger figure. The T-rex will be able to combine with the other Zords that will be shown off at a later time, and will stand at around 24″ when fully assembled into the Megazord!
As for the Red Ranger Zord that was announced, I like it but I am a little reserved about picking it up right now. I like the design but it seems like it will have trouble standing by itself and the coloring leaves a little to be desired. I do love that it has explosion sounds, fires missiles, and the Ranger having to sit inside the T-Rex’s head is something pretty original to this figure. This is something that I will have to wait and see the others before I can make a commitment.
I have no desire to pick up the Red Ranger sword as of right now, but the Morpher is another story. I kinda like the overall simplistic design of the toy and the fact that it comes with all 5 of the Morpher Coins. That and it appears to have a light up and sounds gimmick which definitely as to the overall play value. This seems like something if I saw in stores I would purchase in a heartbeat!
This is kinda sad, but these new figures have me more excited for the Power Rangers movie then what the initial teaser trailer was able to accomplish! I’m very happy overall with what I’m seeing so far and can’t wait to see what the rest of the line has to offer!
