Deluxe Mega Voyager
Review by JoshB
The Deluxe Mega Voyager comes from the 1998 series, Power Rangers in Space. It's based off of the Japanese Super Sentai series Denji Sentai Megaranger.
The toy is essentially unchanged from it's Japanese release, even the characters name is the same in both series.
It's worth noting that I think it's one of the few "Megazords" that doesn't actually have "Megazord" it it's name.
We were really spoiled with Power Rangers toys in the 90s. This was basically a direct Japanese import, with a full styrofoam tray, for about $39.99. I thought I was to sophisticated for Power Rangers at the time, but now I feel like a fool for sleeping on this.
The Deluxe Mega Voyager consists of 5 vehicles, one for each ranger.
Mega V1 Resembles a humanoid astronaut, and is the Zord of the Red Ranger. The arms move, but that's about it.
Mega V2 is a space shuttle who is piloted by the Black Ranger. On it's own it does nothing. Keep this out of the sun as it's prone to yellow over time.
Mega V3 is a rocket piloted by the Blue Ranger. Mega V1 can clip on the top to ride it. It separates to become a weapon, and the legs of the megazord.
Mega V4 is a spaceship piloted by the yellow ranger. It is similar in design to the Astro Megazord in spaceship mode. It becomes the chest and arms of the Megazord.
Mega V5 is piloted by the Pink Ranger, and becomes the feet for the megazord. This piece is also prone to discloration over time.
Combination into Deluxe Mega Voyager
Flip over the top panels on the feet.
Attach the legs.
Mega V1 folds up into the torso.
Attach the top section of the rocket.
Unfold the arms from the center of Mega V4, and slide down over the rocket.
Remove the cone of the rocket, and place Mega V3 on top.
Remove the front of Mega V3 to reveal the face!
The cone of the rocket can be attached to the arm and launched from the section.
The remains of Mega V3 become the shield. It's a bit too heavy to hold up on its own.
The Deluxe Mega Voyager can also combine with the Mega Winger (not shown) to create the Winged Mega Voyager.

This was the first Power Rangers toy I bought for my son way back when. We played and played and played with it. Several years later, the arm assembly of the yellow spaceship broke, and it was more than super glue could fix. I contacted Bandai and they sent a free replacement. It's really unusual, as it didn't have the factory applied stickers. The kid was pretty excited when his first Megazord got fixed!
