Even though the website won't fully launch until November, RangerNation.com has just been updated with official looks at three toys — T-Rex Battle Zord, Power Morpher, and Red Ranger's Power Sword — created for Saban’s Power Rangers movie.
Obviously, of the three, the Battle Zord toy is the most exciting. Though we got a peek at the Zords on official posters released last month, this is our first proper look at one of them. Zords, which are colossal assault vehicles piloted by Power Rangers, come in many different forms, but for the 2017 live-action film, Saban and Lionsgate are going with Dinozords. As you can guess, that means the Zords will have dinosaur-like features, but they will also incorporate the futuristic/alien elements we've seen the costumes utilize. Furthermore, the Zords can combine together to form Megazord, a giant humanoid robot.
This Zord in particular is designed to resemble a tyrannosaurus-rex, equipped with several weapons, and is piloted by Jason Lee Scott (played by Dacre Montgomery), the Red Ranger.
