Legacy Tigerzord

White Tigerzord Stats
Length: 80 ft
Weight: 330,693 lbs
Speed: 114 mph

The Legacy Tigerzord follows on in the Power Rangers Legacy line up with the Megazord and Dragonzord. As with the others it is a brand new mould based on the original toy released in 1994 for the second series of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Compared with the original it is slightly smaller with no electronics but sleeker and heavy with diecast metal parts, additionally its only accessory is the tail/sword so there aren't as many accessories to lose as there was with the original. This figure is also Zord Builder compatible, at least with the legs, so you can form a version of the Mega Tigerzord. At the time of writing, a Legacy version of the Thunder Megazord is due to be released early 2016 and will no doubt be compatible with the Legacy Tigerzord.

The second series of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers ran between 1994 and 1995, and as with the first series its an adaptation of the Super Sentai Series Goset Sentai Dairanger, its 17th series, airing between 1993 to 1994.

In the original Super Sentai series, the Tigerzord is called "Won Tiger", whilst the combined Mega Tigerzord form is called "Shinsei Gattai Kiba DaiOh".

In robot form its a solid figure and I'd say it looks a lot better then the original 1994 version. Articulation is limited and its a shame you can't turn the robots head but it does have knee joints.

Transformation to tiger mode is identical to the original however when transforming the figure to Mega Tigerzord mode, the rear tiger legs need to be removed completely and set aside. I would have liked a transformation where they stayed in place as pulling them out was simple enough but when I tried to put them back, though the plastic is solid, it felt like I was going to break it at one point.

This figure is expensive and really only worth it if you are collecting the Legacy line up. As a stand alone figure its okay but I'm sure it will be complimented with the upcoming Legacy Thunder Megazord which I'm sure will also come with a hefty price tag.
