Pachy Zord – Power Rangers Dino Charge, Dino Super Charge

The Pachy Zord is based off of the Pachycephalosaurus, you know the one. The dino with the big bone dome. Well, this time around he is wearing a hardhat and swinging a mace by the tail. This version is a recolor of the initial grey version from the show. This coloring is a nod to the Power Rangers Dino Charge Cephalazord. Ironically, they used the same dinosaur for both Zords, but they just used a different part of the extremely long name.

When the #8 charger is inserted into his mouth, the wrecking ball flips off of his head. Slide the swivel down his tail, and you have a very long reach.

He combines with the Ptera Charge Megazord to create the Ptera Charge Megazord: Pachy Formation. They used to have such awesomely long, convoluted names for these formations, but they have been simplified for Dino Charge.

When he is in Pachy Formation, the new arm is extremely long, and drags on the ground. Probably not the greatest design, but it does give the Ptera Charge Megazord a LONG reach.

These three Zords have a body in common.  They all have separate tails, and top heads.   The legs of the Pachy Zord are the same as the Raptor Zord.  The paint is really well done, as it seems to be with all of these figures.  We are starting to see the Super Charge Zords hitting shelves now.  It has been quiet for a while, with only the Ptera Charge Megazord coming out most recently.  There are going to be plenty of choices here for a little while.

Power Rangers Dino Charge – Ptera Charge Megazord

Lots of bright beautiful art.  He comes with his gold charger (clear #6), his head, 2 cannons, as well as a funny plate that covers the hole in his chest.  A strange addition to be sure, since it is removed and the Pteranodon’s head is attached there.   Of course the box would have been 3 inches deeper if they had put the head on for release, and that would have been ridiculous.

When he is in Pteranodon form, he has quite a wingspan.  Basically the length of the shoulders and double the length of his arms.  The body is a bit on the square bulky side.

The head covers the Dino Charger slot.  The top of the head pivots up, and the jaw drops down.

The charger sliding into place allows double cannons to be flipped forward for extra firepower.

Ptera Charge Megazord’s head is very intricately decorated.  There is mostly gold and silver with touches of blue.  It is quite a good looking helmet.

Standing in robot mode, he has slender legs with sharp toes.  He looks great as a Megazord.

Insert the charger, and the cannons flip forward for firepower in Megazord mode.

The guns that are attached to his shoulders can be removed and used as pistols.
The helmet slides closed from the sides to protect his face when he changes to Pteranodon.

Ptera Charge Megazord stands almost as tall as Megazord all on his own, withouth the addition of extra Zords.  To Dino Charge Megazord’s credit, all of his height is from T-Rex Zord alone.  He needs help from others for arms.

Dino Charge Megazord: Tri-Stego-Ptera Formation:   The formation of the two Megazords is quite a thing to behold.  This new Zord looks to be tough and flight capable.

MegaZord’s hat is taken off, and the Pteranodon’s head is used as a hat instead.

That is quite a backpack.  And the T-Rex tail is definitely needed to keep this guy standing.

Ptera Charge Megazord: Stego-Tricera Formation: Not really a sanctioned formation as of yet, but I wasn’t prepared for the Para-Raptor Formation.  As in, I didn’t know what the actual formation was until I looked it up on RangerWiki.  That and the box back uses the future Zords that have yet to be released.

The playability alone of these is so amazing and fun.   With a second Megazord, there are so many more possibilities.  There are enough arms out now that both Megazords can have a pair, with more on the way.  We are going to be crawling in extra parts in the very near future, with some fun new arms that will be more playable than the pairs out now.  I was just getting to the point of being bored with waiting, and then they came out with the next big thing along with some of the new Power Rangers and a whole slew of bad guys.  This looks like the largest number of bad guys released in any iteration of the show.
