Action figure leaks and official images of the new Power Rangers movie toys have surfaced revealing the new Megazord. The result is... Puzzling--Certainly divisive.
While the new Megazord manages to avoid looking like the rather vulnerable Autobots and Decepticons from Michael Bay's Transformers series, it lacks the iconic trait of appearing like a massive, robotic combiner. Ironically, it looks more like a suit of armor.
Leaked images show the combiner toy fairing a bit better--Although it looks a bit flimsy, it has more color and shows traits of a traditional Megazord make-up. (Note the Mastodon and Triceratops legs.)
The toy of the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord, or "T-Rex Zord", was also recently revealed--Looking less like a prehistoric creature and more like a Xenomorph from Alien.
Although these designs are barely recognizable and lack personality, it is worth noting that these are merely the toys. The on-screen execution could very well turn out okay.
What do you think of the new look for the zords so far? How does it compare with the original, iconic designs? Lets us in the comments.
