Power Rangers Zords Revealed in New Toy Video
Back in July, it was revealed that Lionsgate's upcoming Power Rangers reboot will bring back the Dinozords from the original series. Earlier this month, we got a glimpse of the Megazord through a new toy photo, but today we have a video that unveils our first look at all of the individual Zords. This video gives showcases the Triceratops, Mastodon, Sabertooth Tiger, and Pterodactyl Zords that will come together to create the Megazord.
MMPR Toys posted a seven-minute video of the Megazord, which is not the "transforming Megazord," with this video revealing that there will be another version that has the five separate Zords. However, on the back of the packaging, which you can see at the 4:34 mark of the video below, we get our first look at the individual Zords. The Pink Ranger Zord also appears to have a "putty" figure as well. No purchase date has been announced for these toys.
Power Rangers stars Becky G (Yellow Ranger), Naomi Scott (Pink Ranger), RJ Cyler (Blue Ranger), Dacre Montgomery (Red Ranger) and Ludi Lin (Black Ranger), with Elizabeth Banks also starring as the villainous Rita Repulsa. It was also recently confirmed that Bill Hader will provide the voice of Alpha 5, while Bryan Cranston will portray Zordon in this remake. The first trailer debuted last month, but it remains to be seen when the next batch of footage will be released.
This new update of the Power Rangers TV show follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove, and the world, is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) is directing from a screenplay by John Gatins, based on characters created by Haim Saban and Shuki Levy. Lionsgate has set a March 24, 2017 release date for Power Rangers, putting it up against Warner Bros.' King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Sony's Keep Watching. Take a look at this new video featuring the Power Rangers Megazord, and skip to the 4:34 mark for your first look at the individual Zords.
