I found the Fisher-Price Imaginext Power Rangers Morphing Megazord(that’s a mouthful!) at Target. It was a bit of a surprise. I did not think the first Megazord(the Dino Megazord came out in 1993!) would still have any interest. I figured they would only have the current Power Rangers stuff out. Who would remember Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, except for maybe the parents. Anyway, seeing a 23 year old Super Sentai robot was a was a nice surprise. Major blast from the past.
It reminds me a bit of the Playskool Epic Optimus Prime I posted 2 years ago as it is similar in size and style. Even the back part is hollowed out like the Epic Optimus, but this is way taller. I have to think they have the same designer. While the Epic Optimus was 22″ this one is a whopping 27″. It is by far the biggest robot I have ever seen. Design wise it is a bit closer to the actual robot from the tv show, than I thought it would be. Which is a nice plus. I have always been fond of Super Sentai robots, even if I did not care much for the shows. Looks like this generation has the Epic Optimus and the Imaginext Morphin Megazord as Jumbo Machinders for their nostalgic robot memories.
For you Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fans this may be the piece to get, if not the Power Rangers Limited Black Edition Legacy Megazord at Toys R’ Us
