New toys tied to the upcoming “Power Rangers” movie have been revealed, offering fans of the franchise the first look at the Red Ranger’s “T-Rex Battle Zord.”
The images debuted on Ranger Nation, a new “Power Rangers” fan site that promises a full launch on Nov. 20. The site now only features the three toys.
Shown with a two-inch Red Ranger figure for scale, the Dinozord features missile-firing action and sound effects. Ranger Nation states the Zord can “connect with other Zords to form the towering Megazord.” The new Zord is much sleeker than the original 1990s model, and seems to stay true to the newer, darker theme that the “Power Rangers” movie promises.
The website also debuted a look at the Power Morphers, which allow the Rangers to don their battle armor. The Morpher will come with the five Power Coins of the Rangers. Also revealed was the Red Ranger’s Power Sword in toy form. The designs are an homage to the original series but, as with the T-Rex Zord, they possess a sleeker look and move away from the geometrical shapes of the classic show.
A franchise reboot, the film follows five ordinary teens who learn that their small town of Angel Grove — and the world — is on the verge of obliteration by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, the quickly discover they’re the only ones who can save the planet — but they must overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it’s too late.
Arriving March 24, “Power Rangers” stars Naomi Scott, Becky G., Dacre Montgomery, Ludi Lin and RJ Cyler. The film debuts in theaters March 24, 2017.
