No Power Rangers show would be complete without their trusty Zords. And if the teaser trailer for the reboot left one thing, it's that it did not give a good look at them. Thankfully, toys for the movie have appeared online, which include the T-Rex Battle Zord with a miniature Red Ranger figure.
The overall design of Red Ranger's Zord has an organic metal theme on it, much like what the live-action, as Screen Rant Reports. It has missiles for arms, the feet have a single claw each, and the figure looks "grounded". The Zord also sports a big cannon on its back. Additionally, it is inclined that it can combine with the other Zords to form a MegaZord, another staple in every Power Rangers show. Whether this feature will actually be part of the movie itself, though, is still left to be seen.
If this is a reference of what the other Zords (Mastodon, Triceratops, Saber-toothed Tiger and Pterodactyl) would look like, it is definitely a departure from their 90's counterparts. The original show (then called Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers), which aired in 1992, featured Zords that are bulkier, blocky and more geometric in appearance. This is primarily due to the fact that some of them required stuntmen to wear the costumes for filming, while some were animated through puppetry. Only a handful of animation was done via computer imagery at that time, unlike the reboot Zords which appear to be fully computer animated.
Other toys that appeared along with the Battle Zord are the new Morphers and the Red Ranger's Power Sword, according to ComingSoon. The Morphers, as fans of the series know, are used by the heroes to transform into the titular Power Rangers. Five coins will accompany the Morphers, each representing a different ranger.
Directed by Dean Israelite and written by John Gatins, the film would follow five teenagers as they discover a mysterious power, and an alien that threatens to destroy the planet. Knowing that they are the only ones who could stop it, the teenagers choose to band together and use their powers to become the Power Rangers.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved.
