Legacy Dragonzord

Dragonzord Stats
Height: 124 ft.
Weight: 340,000 lbs.
Speed: 86mph
Weapons: Power Lazer Drill

The original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series from 1993 in an adaptation from the Japanese Super Sentai series, which at this time was in its 16th series (having started in 1975) called "Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger". The Dragonzords Japanese name is "Dragon Caesar".

Released a year after the Legacy Megazord, the Legacy Dragonzord was an anticipated figure. This is an all new mould which has never been released before unlike the Legacy Megazord. This figure also does not come with a sticker sheet, all the details are either moulded on or are pre-applied stickers.

Legacy Megazord

Megazord Stats
Height: 333 ft.
Weight: 172,000 lbs.
Power: 50,000 megavolts
Weapons: Titanium Power Sword, Laser Emitting Eyes, Mammoth Shield, Power Punch Missiles, Thunder Cannons, and Pterodactyl Chest Plate.

The Legacy Megazord is a "reissue" of the original 1993 Megazord to celebrate the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 20th Anniversary in 2013. Bandai did not use the original 1993 mould but the slightly smaller and sleeker mould of the 2010 Megazord. (The 2010 Megazord was released as part of the 2010 reversion of the original 1993 show which was remastered and featured an updated logo.) The Legacy Megazord differs from the 2010 release with the inclusion of diecast metal parts and premium paint work.

Dinobot Slug

Bio: "This fiery warrior hates taking orders, unless it means he gets to destroy something. He'll level anything in his path with a fit of white-hot dino rage."

A re-imagining of Slag from 1985, obviously with a more "PC" name. It’s a solid sturdy little figure and is quite poseable the only bit of “kibble” is the folded dinosaur tail on the robots back which just hangs there. I do like the way the arms split to form the dino chest as well as the overall purple colour (though movie inaccurate).
