Power Rangers had the biggest area of the Bandai America showroom. It looked great. Lots of product on display from role play to Megazords.
Here's some highlights:
- The Giga Megazord will be available as a complete gift pack as a retailer exclusive sometime before the holidays. If you don't feel like hunting down all the parts, this is a good option.
- No Dragonzord, or any classic Megazords this year. Next year is a Power Rangers anniversary, however, and the rep said to expect TONS of classic Megazords and items. 2013 will be great for classic MMPR fans.
- There will be no deluxe Megazord of the Lantern robot (DaiGoYou in Shinkenger). Instead, they are releasing s smaller original Gigazord that is about as tall as the regular Megazord. Despite being entirely different parts, it will be able to connect to the other Megazords in the line.

Historically, one of the most unique and compelling features of the Power Rangers line has been and continues to be, our ZordBuilder collection.
Construction is an aggressively growing segment, but traditional construction sets can be so square.
Bandai has fused action and construction to deliver a creative play-pattern that allows kids to build show-accurate Zords and Megazords or an infinite number of their own Zord creations and extend the Power Ranger play experience.
A perfect example of the ZordBuilder collection is the Gigazord. As seen in the TV series the Gigazord is the ultimate Megazord, and can be created by combining 3 Deluxe Megazords and 4 Zords. That’s 40 individual pieces, combining together to create the Power Rangers strongest weapon.
As we were leaving the showroom, the actual actors who play the red and pink rangers - Alex Hartman and Erika Fong!
