Deluxe Black T-Rex and Spino Zords

Black T-Rex and Spino Zords came out together, and they are based on the same body, so I thought it would be best to review them together.

The black version of the T-Rex is great looking in black and gold. It looks like we are getting a run of this color through all of the figures released in the Legacy line, and this one is just happening to come during the run of the line.

The Black T-Rex uses the same body and head as the Red Rexy. There is a variation on the tail which is short and stubby. The black T-Rex also comes with the missile launcher backpack that comes with the Spino Zord.  I doubt we will be seeing him like this in the show, but you never know what they could pull out of their sleeves.

Of course, the only reason most would want the black T-Rex would be to make the all black Dino Charge Megazord. And you are in luck. You can now make it, since there was an exclusive color release of Dino Charge Megazord with Rexy in green, but the Stego and Tricera come in the black. It is all a scheme to get you to buy a few extra parts, but it works fine for me. I like the green version as an homage to an earlier show, as well as being able to now make a full black and full green version of Dino Charge Megazord. If we can get a pink Rexy, we will have colors for the whole team with a main Zord.

Spino Zord is a Zord a lot of people were waiting for. Some really don’t like the backpack with missile launcher. I think it is fine.

He also comes with the stubby tail. I can’t figure out the stubby tail, since it looks like it had the long tail in the Japanese version of the show, and had the long tail in the Japanese version of the toy.

The tail can be used as a missile launcher or a gun on Spino’s shoulder. The backpack becomes a handheld gun.

We are getting quite a collection of Megazords now.   Everyone can be formed into a Zord of some sort with lots of combinations.  I will definitely stick with standard Dino Charge Megazord, and Black Dino Charge Megazord.  But the rest will probably change around a lot as I see fit.  I need one more variant color for a Zord to make an all-blue Spino Megazord, and then I need the variant Red Raptor Zord and one more variant colored Zord to make an all-red Zord.  There is still a whole season of Dino Super Charge to go, so we may yet be able to build more full single colors of Zords beyond Black and Green.

Rexy can’t have all of the fun.  Spino can be used to make the Plesio Charge Megazord: Pachy-Spino Formation too.  Not my favorite combination, but there are a lot of fun things you can do with the Zord builder.



Limited Edition Dino Charge Megazord

Something new popped up at Target yesterday. Under the radar, but something I felt like I had to have. This is the Limited Edition Dino Charge Megazord.

On the packaging, it boasts “Limited Edition Color” as well as “All New Charger.” The color combination is fantastic. You get a green T-Rex Zord, as well as black versions of the Stego Zord and Tricera Zord.

A Green Rexy alone looks great, but the addition of the two black figures gives you something extra special. Combine them with the black Rexy, and you have another Megazord that has been blacked out, similar to the MMPR version of the Megazord that is at Toys R Us. I haven’t broken my black Rexy out of the box yet, but that is going to be coming soon now.

The black versions of Stego Zord and Tricera Zord look great. A lot of gold plastic and paint added all over the place, with a touch of silver that remains. They are consistent with the use of gold and silver across all three figures, and it really works.

You still only get one charger with the set, and it would have been great to get some color variations with the different Zords, but it was not meant to be.

Rexy looks absolutely fabulous in green.  Will we ever see this in the show?  I am guessing no, we will not.  This is a toy only variant, but I am glad it exists.   If we keep going with this, we could end up with an army of main Zords.  We now have Red Rexy, Green Rexy, Black Rexy, and Spino Zord in Blue.  We need a pink version, and all of the Rangers would be able to command their own Megazord.

#1 Transparent Clear Fossil  This is a new Charger for anyone who is collecting all of the chargers.

This year we are seeing so many variants, nods to previous Power Rangers series.  This one is stand alone, but it is really nice.  You can begin to work on your rainbow of Megazords now.
