The Power Rangers movie reboot has revealed its first look at the brand new Megazord, and fans across the Internet are sharing their opinions.
Given how iconic Megazord (aka, the Power Rangers battle robot, constructed by uniting individual battle units, or "Zords") is to the franchise, and how different this new movie design is, it's no wonder that we're seeing such...impassioned reactions on social media.
The Power Rangers movie reboot has, in general, been looked at with skepticism and the now-standard divisiveness. The story has the same elements, but the tone and that "alien aesthetic" is distinctly different. And nostalgic fans don't like "different."
Below are some of the best reactions to the new Megazord. Some fans are reacting positively, embracing the new alien aesthetic; some are reacting negatively, saying the changes dishonor the legacy of the original - and there's even one or two level headed opinions to keep things in perspective.
Take a look at the best Twitter Reactions to the new Megazord.
