Revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic Con was the Power Rangers Zeo Legacy Zeonizer. Now, thanks to a listing at EntertainmentEarth.com, we have an official press image as well as the release details.
Due out in February 2018 for roughly $99, the Power Rangers Zeo Legacy Zeonizer official image gives us our first clear look at how beautiful this item is. Undoubtedly this will be a hot item that will be in the collection of many fans.
The Bandai America Legacy line of helmets will continue now – the Legacy Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Green Ranger Helmet Revealed earlier today at online retailer Entertainment Earth. Like the Legacy Red Ranger and Legacy Movie Red Ranger helmets before it, this item will be a wearable helmet designed to look as close to the show as possible.
According to the listing, the Legacy Green Ranger helmet is set to release in February of 2018 for the usual retail of around $99.
We invite you to take a look at our article of how Power Rangers failed to deliver at San Diego Comic Con and this reveal, coming through an online retailer as opposed to Bandai America or Saban Brands, only furthers to reference our point at the continued mismanagement of the brand. This is an item that could have been, and should have been, revealed at San Diego Comic Con less than a month ago.
Great news for those of you collecting the Power Rangers Ninja Steel toy line – the Power Rangers Ninja Steel Lion Fire Fortress Zord is now available online at Toys’R’Us website!

We’re reporting on this bit because of the fact that Lionsgate was the movie studio behind the Power Rangers Movie. Hasbro had been in negotiations with Lionsgate for a formal takeover, giving the toy company its first real movie studio under its belt. Hasbro has been attempting for years to go from “toy maker” to “entertainment producer”, such as the failed Hasbro channel via Discovery Channel known as “The Hub” some years prior.
Could this have been a roadblock from green-lighting a Power Rangers Movie sequel? We may never know but it certainly doesn’t hurt that a major competitor to Saban Brands and Bandai America, Hasbro, failed to acquire the studio that has the rights to the Power Rangers Movie.
Hey Power Rangers fans! The Official Power Morphicon opened its registration this morning! If you haven’t registered yet, please click here and begin the process. A lot of fans are expressing dismay that they didn’t have an option to include the Power Morphicon Exclusive 6.5″ Legacy Power Rangers figure. While it hasn’t been showing up during the registration process, there is a way to add it.
After you’ve registered for your membership, you will be sent an E-mail regarding your registration. Open that E-mail, go back in to your registration profile on the site, edit the “Extra Items” tab, and you can then add as many Legacy 6.5″ figures that your membership allows. You will have to pay for them in advance.
While there has been no official announcement on what the Power Morphicon Legacy 6.5″ exclusive figure is, a report out our friends from Power Rangers NOW states that it is indeed the evil Lord Drakkon! However, some conflicting reports are out there as well (at one point the original registration site showed “Psycho Silver Ranger”). However, we did learn Bandai America will be offering a second exclusive through their booth at the convention. So stay tuned for more details!
Each year we have a new gimmick figure in the Kamen Rider action figure line. For example during Kamen Rider Gaim it was the “Arms Change” figures and most recently in Kamen Rider Ex-Aid it was the “Level Up Rider” series. This next series, for Kamen Rider Build, is called the Bottle Change Rider series. We now have a Bottle Change Rider 01 Kamen Rider Build Rabbit Tank Form official image courtesy of Bandai Japan.
This figure has a button on the back of him that, when pressed, will separate the figure in to two pieces so you can use other Bottle Change accessories to change the form of Kamen Rider Build.
This figure releases September 2nd 2017 in Japan for the price of 3,500 yen. No other accessories have been revealed as of yet but stay tuned for more details and hopefully more images.
Our brand new hero, Kamen Rider Build, will use a weapon that’s already gaining a lot of traction in the fan community for being awesome as heck – the DX Build Crusher! It’s basically a drill sword that also changes in to a gun. We now have the Kamen Rider Build DX Drill Crusher official images courtesy of Bandai Japan.
The DX Drill Crusher comes with the Hedgehog Full Bottle. The DX Drill Crusher can act as a sword and spin when the activation button is pressed along with a sound effect. Or, you can transform it in to a gun and shoot your enemies. Insert your favorite Full Bottle accessory to unleash a special attack and also place it in your DX Build Driver to activate a new form!
The DX Drill Crusher releases on September 2nd 2017 with a suggested retail of 5,000 yen. Check your favorite online import stores and order yours today.
Not satisfied with simply having a brand new DX Build Driver you can also pick up the set that includes the holder! We have the Kamen Rider Build DX Build Driver and Bottle Holder Set official images courtesy of Bandai Japan. With this set you recieve the DX Build Driver, the Rabbit and Tank Full Bottles, the Bottle Holder accessory, as well as the Cleaner Full Bottle.
This item releases on September 2nd 2017 in Japan. Prices will vary so check your favorite import store for all the details and pricing.
Also included in this update are images of simply the DX Bottle Holder which is available for purchase by itself with the Cleaner Full Bottle.
