Titano Charge Megazord – Power Rangers Dino Super Charge

After playing with really well articulated Transformers, it is always a struggle to re-wrap my head around Power Rangers Zords. The bodies generally have four point of articulation, at the two shoulders, and the legs.

Titano Charge Megazord is no different. In robot mode, he looks to be quite formidable. The later Zords of a series are usually a lot bigger, and can form a robot on their own.

Titano Charge Megazord and Dino Charge Megazord stand about the same height at the head. Rexy’s head gives DC Megazord a little extra height.  Titano is a stout figure, standing strong. Being based on a Brachiosaurus should give a sense of how robust this robot is going to be.  Titano Charge Megazord has a axe type weapon. It is slotted into a hole in his hand.

Of course the fun of the Power Rangers Zords is the transformations. Titano becomes a Brachiosaurus. It is a bit flat in appearance along the back.

There are some nice touches though, like the fact that the back looks like a giant mouth.

We will have to wait to see what this combo is called in Dino Super Charge, but parts of Titano can be added to Dino Charge Megazord to make a REALLY tall figure. It helps that Rexy’s tail becomes the top of the head.

They even go so far as to unite the entire team of Red, Blue, Pink, Black, and Green all in one Zord.

Though not accurate for the Super Sentai counterpart, this version of Titano can use other Zords as shoulder mounted weapons, or use them as replacement arms.

With #10 Dino Charger, my collection is one step closer to being complete. I am only missing D and SD to get all of the main Chargers. There are lots of extra chargers out there like MMPR and others, but for my display, I really only wanted the initial set.


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.


Plesio Charge Megazord – Power Rangers Dino Super Charge

PC Megazord is fantastic. He comes with so many pieces, and creates his own Zord without having to add any other Zords. This is similar to the Ptera Zord that can also stand alone. That really helps the fighting of the bad guys when more Zords can show up to be in the fight.

It is clear which iteration of the show he belongs to, with the giant gold dino face across his chest. The color scheme on him is fantastic. Clearly a look a the color wheel was taken to match the gold with the purple. Add in some black and white, and you have a good combo all around. There is just a touch of red around the face to give a little touch of extra, and to nod to the later Plesio Charge Megazord: Pachy-Rex Formation which includes the red Rexy.

He has one extra piece that is the head of the Plesio and can form a giant blaster on one arm. Fear not. He does come with two hands, and does not need to head to be attached at all times. The extra hand, or both hands can be stored against the back of the leg. It turns out to be a great hiding spot since he has so much bulk behind him anyway.

There is a lot of movement of parts to get him transformed into the spaceship.  When all is said and done, he makes a great looking ship too.   Inserting a charger into the mouth, opens a cannon array on the back of the neck. You can alway use extra firepower.   Similar to Rexy, when the charger is in the Plesio’s mouth, the mouth can fully close.

Of course, things cannot stop at a zord and that is all. They have to combine in some way. When we first saw Rexy, he had to be combined with two other Zords to form Megazord. PC Megazord can definitely stand on his own, and is quite a brute to boot. Well, we add a little Rexy, and a touch of the Pachy Zord, and what we end up with is the Plesio Charge Megazord: Pachy-Rex Formation. This is no small feat of connection. There are pieces moved all about. Rexy becomes the lower torso and waist. Plesio rotates and moves so much that his legs become the new shoulders to attach big arms onto. His cannon becomes one arm, and Pachy Zord becomes the other.

The directions are really good, and all of the parts of Rexy and Plesio are used, except for where to stick Dino Charge Megazord’s helmet. It can actually attach inside of Plesio’s cannon.

This is a good time to talk about the mis-colored Pachy Zord. I have talked about it before, and liked the nod to the Dino Thunder color scheme. I actually like it even more now, since Pachy matches the Plesio, and the graphite color of the original version doesn’t match.

In this new formation, he is huge. He is tall, think Rexy with a tall head on top, and Plesio’s feet added to the bottom of Rexy’s. He is wide, shoulders out to there. And he is long. Rexy keeps his head and tail to make the full length.

And let’s not forget what is best about all of the different lines of Power Rangers… the heads of the Zords.   Some have great heads, some have awesome hats.  The Pachy-Rex Formation is no different.   It looks like two sides of jaws opening to reveal this great new head.  It is actually the back of Plesio’s head turned around.

Standing with the other two Megazords, he is not super extra huge compared to them, but he does have a little extra height in the head.   This guy is a great addition to the team.  He is big and powerful, and a lot of fun to play with.   He is substantial, but is so well designed that he stays together while being played with.


Power Rangers Dino Charge – Dino Charge Megazord

A few months back, I went onto Netflix to find something to watch.  I clicked on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and I was instantly hooked on the show.  From the guys dressed in suits to the terrible lines, I couldn’t stop watching.  Come three weeks ago, the new series Power Rangers Dino Charge was set to begin.  In pre-emptive enjoyment, I grabbed a few of the figures which I reviewed here.

Since then, I have grabbed the rest of the team, and began my hunt to track down the Red Rangers released at the end of the Super Megaforce run.  That is a completely different problem I will address on a different post.  Today we are going to look at the main guy, the Megazord.

I was not sure what to expect when he first came out.  I had only ever collected a few Power Rangers, and only figures.  So, to get a Zord was a whole new ball game.  Last week he was on sale at Toys R Us, so I figured it was a perfect time to get him.  When I picked up the box, I knew I was making the right decision.  It was very heavy.

He is made up of three Zords.  The T-Rex Zord (red), the Tricera Zord (pink), and the Stego Zord (Blue).  He doesn’t have a good articulation as I was hoping for, but there are always limitations with large figures like this that have to do a lot of things.   They have to come apart to form other parts.  They need to be able to eat their Dino Charger.  And of course they have to transform into a dinosaur.

Watching him form into Megazord for the first time in yesterday’s episode (3), it is clear that his transformation is very similar onscreen as it is in toy form.  His head rotates into place and then his helmet is dropped on top just like this.

The Zords are powered by a Dino Charger.  A battery the Rangers keep in their belts and then throw into the air and powers the Zord.  Megazord came with a T-Rex Charger (#1).  It is a special version with a clear case, instead of a flat silver color that comes in the Dino Charger Power Packs.  Speaking of Power Packs, a Power Pack has two Dino Chargers and a hard rubber Zord. There is a button on the top of the charger that turns the picture inside.

I grabbed this pack to get the #5 Triceratops Charger, which is used by the Pink Ranger and powers the Tricera Zord. It also came with what is being listed as an auxiliary charger #16 Dino Stretch Charger which is supposed to stretch one’s neck to extreme lengths. We will see how this one plays out in the show.

When the Zords are apart, they become their standard dino mode.  They can fight in this mode too, as we saw when they were called at the end of episode 3.  They do not have very much articulation, with just movement in the legs.  Rexy has a little more with a his head being able to swivel, and his little front arms can move up and down.

When the Dino Chargers are inserted into the mouth of the dinosaur, their bodies change a bit.  The Tricera Zord’s tail extends and she uses a drill action to attack.  In her premiere episode (3), she blasted through two Giant Vivix, which look like Godzilla.  The Stego Zord has an extra spike that comes out in his back.   The T-Rex Zord’s feathers/spikes on top of the head spread out when the mouth is closed.   He can close his mouth over his charger.  The other two are left with wide open mouths.

Over all I am happy with this set.  I don’t know if I would have been happy at the original $34.99, but at $24.99 with an additional $5 off at Toys R Us, it made for a much better deal.  I just have to remind myself that these are not Transformers.   They serve a different purpose, and are fun in a different way.

Up next I will be looking at the Dino Cycles.  This week they are on sale at Target for $10.99, $4 off.  They come with “an exclusive Ranger.”  Check back to see what that is all about.  And how do they look when they are combined with Megazord.  You don’t want to miss that one.
