soul of chogokin megazord review

During the 90s, Power Rangers was an extremely popular TV show and one of its most iconic elements was Megazord. This is a big deal for a lot of kids from that era, who were pretty obsessed with the concept of a giant robot that transformed into a team of super heroes.

It's been a while since we've had something like this from Hasbro, but the "Zord Ascension Project" series is here to offer a new take on Megazord that feels more substantial and modern than past takes have. The first in this line-up is Soul of Chogokin's Dino Megazord, which reimagines Bandai's iconic original toy for today's kiddie-power-ranger fans.

The Dino Megazord is a pretty big and striking figure, with lots of diecast in its construction. That's a good thing, as it means the toy is both weighty and sturdy. The articulation points on this combiner are more than adequate for getting some really cool action poses out of it, even though they're not as elaborate as you might expect from a dedicated Megazord toy.

There are five separate Dinozords in the set that have their own beast mode and gimmicks (the Triceratops is especially interesting, with its horns on chains) as well as a Megazord itself that comes with a Power Sword and Mastodon's head as a shield. They're all sculpted and painted to a high standard, but it can be hard to tell just how detailed each of them are until you get them all together.
