Further images of Hasbro’s upcoming Power Rangers toy releases

With Power Rangers Beast Morphers almost upon us, Hasbro have released further images of the new Zords and Megazord from the show, as well as a completely original toy in the Playskool line!

Following on from last week’s initial Beast Morphers reveals, we now have more details about what the new zords and Megazord will look like. As you probably appreciate by now, Power Rangers Beast Morphers marks Hasbro’s first run at making toys for the franchise and boy are they coming out swinging! In a surprise move ahead of New York Toy Fair, Hasbro have been revealing their first Power Rangers lines in dribs and drabs; last week we saw the roleplay weapons to action figures and now they have shown off the new Zords, scheduled for release this Autumn. Hasbro has already stepped up to the plate, revealing two separate Zord styles where the majority can transform twice: between animal and vehicle mode. The Red Racer has the distinction of being able to transform three time, as it can also transform into a robot on its own.

Without further ado, lets start by having a look at the Red Ranger’s Zord, the Beast Racer, in its three separate modes: vehicle, animal and robot. The Beast Racer Zord will also make up the basis for the Megazord when in robot mode.

Next up are the dual changing zords which can change between vehicle and animal modes. These include the Beast Wheeler Zord for the Blue Ranger, Beast Chopper Zord for the Yellow Ranger, as well as two mystery/not so mystery Zords (Gold and Silver *cough*), one of which is known as the Beast Jet Zord.

The Beast Wrecker is another mysterious Zord.

When the bad guys go supersize, the Power Rangers need a way to keep up so they have the ability to bring their Zords together to create the Beast-X Megazord, made up of the Beast Racer, Beast Wheeler and Beast Chopper Zords. When they add in the Beast Jet and Beast Wrecker Zords, the Power Rangers create the powerful Beast-X Ultrazord.

The Beast-X Megazord, created form the Red, Blue and Yellow Ranger’s Zords.

For fans excited to see how the Playskool toy line will follow the Imaginext line for younger children, Hasbro also released some images of their newest addition to the collection: the legendary Red Dragon Thunderzord from Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. This behemoth of a Zord stands at approximately 14 inches tall and possesses lights, sounds and moving arms and wings, all of which are triggered by pressing down on the Thunderzord’s tail. If you place the exclusive Dragon Shield Red Ranger onto the Zord’s back, he reveals then unleashes hidden projectiles to defeat the bad guys. The Red Dragon Thunderzord is due for release around the same time as the Power Rangers Beast Morphers Zords, towards Autumn 2019.

Continuing along the same theme, we also got images for some of the roleplay toys and costumes for Power Rangers Beast Morphers that will be seeing release.

POWER-RANGERS-BEAST-MORPHERS-BEAST-X-MORPHER-Wrist-Toy.jpg

Kicking things off is a look the new Morpher from Power Rangers Beast Morphers, named the Beast-X Morpher. This wrist-mounted toy has lights and sounds built in as well as voice and movement activated features. Attaching it to your wrist and using the phrase “It’s Morphin Time!” will trigger the morphing sequence effects and swinging your wrist around will also activate battle lights and sounds for the toy. It also includes some Morph-X Keys which will also trigger lights and sounds. Other keys will be included with other toys from the series.

Following on from the Beast-X Morpher is the Power Rangers Beast Morphers Basic Figures Assortment with each figure standing at 6 inches tall. Each feature multiple points of articulation and include two accessories so that fans can recreate the poses and scenes from the Power Rangers Beast Morphers series. Plus, with the included Morph-X key, kids can imagine unlocking powers in the Beast-X Morpher toy.

Continuing from the figures are the new roleplay toys. The Beast-X Electronic Sabre features lights and reactive sound effects that respond to kids’ movements as they imagine battling monsters and villains as one of the Power Rangers. Swinging the sabre firmly 7 times unlocks “Beast Mode,” with special light and battle sound effects.

The Cheetah Beast Blaster looks like a Cheetah Zord, ready to pounce, but can morph into blaster mode for soft dart-firing action! Powered by NERF, the blaster comes with 3 darts, ready for morphinominal action against any opponent.

51405673_247185332700914_8657190953766879232_n.jpgThe Cheetah Blade looks like it’s ready for action with its cool plastic blade projecting from the mouth of the cheetah handle.

51457163_291551421530195_1906585082760527872_n.jpg

The Electronic Cheetah Claw is used when the Red Ranger powers up in Red Fury Mode. The toy features reactive sound effects that respond to kids’ movements as they strap the toy to their hand, then make a slashing motion to extend the claws. Pushing a button on the handle makes them retract again, ready for more action.

51754576_2348081098806917_5253079370506960896_n.jpg

The Red and Blue Ranger masks both feature designs inspired by the TV show, so kids can imagine leading the Power Rangers in the battle to protect the Morph-X. From Halloween, to party time, or every day adventures, kids can imagine jumping into action.
