Archelon Zord – Power Rangers Dino Super Charge

Bandai America has had a pretty good run of going off the rails and making new toys that are not based on the show, but are based on the Dino Chargers.

This time around the Archelon Zord. A giant sea turtle with a saw blade on his back. Seems legit to me.

As a stand alone Zord it is not all that menacing. It looks about as useful as a sea turtle getting ready to lay some eggs. Upon closer inspection, there is more there than what it seems. We are getting an upscaled version of the small plastic Zord that came with the #21 Dino Slow Charger in the two-pack.  It has an appearance of a flying ship of some sort. I imagine the pods on the front fins are some kind of engines. It would not be out of the realm of possibilities in the world of Power Rangers for this guy to be a flying Zord of some sort.

The Zord has the standard mouth that allows it to be attached as an alternate arm to any of the Megazords. I think with Archelon and Deinosuchus (you know, the orange crocodile), there are some pretty formidable auxiliary Zords to fight with.

When the charger is placed in the mouth, the saw blade slides out into place further down the body of the turtle. As and added bonus, the back legs flip out of the way to give the most possible damage to the enemy.
