Easily the most anticipated part of the Legacy 6.5″ Figure line is the release of the Power Rangers Zeo figures. On display at Toy Fair 2017 was the entire assortment of Power Rangers Zeo including the Build a Megazord figure, the Zeo Megazord.

The hits just keep coming with another new reveal from Bandai America’s panel at Power Morphicon!
Long awaited by many collectors, the Zeo Rangers will be the next team to receive the Legacy treatment in Bandai’s 6.5″ collector aimed line. Presumably the build-a-figure would be of the Zeo Megazord but there’s no confirmation on that currently. Though we can confirm the massive smile on Kickback’s face with that Legacy Zeo Gold Ranger reveal ;)
In case you missed it, the Official Power Morphicon convention listed some more updates to their guest list last week. The list of added guests is as follows:

Another month has come & gone and so have a number of toy galleries and in depth reviews by our Photo & Content staff! This month we took users on a trip that ranged from 2015’s Kamen Rider Ghost to 1973’s Kikaider 01! We also stopped in with a number of new Power Rangers galleries this month related to Dino Charge & Super Megaforce, with a dash of Zeo for good measure. And we made a special pit stop with a wonderful look at Kamen Rider Kiva! As with every month, we wanted to give you a variety of quality photos & reviews to enjoy.
Below are all the links you need to get caught up on this past months galleries:
Quick as lightning, strong as steel, watch out danger he’s for real, you know when lightning strikes it’s Gold Ranger!
I decided to finally crack open my personal collection of Gold Ranger figures to do a gallery and review for the 5″ Zeo Gold Ranger figure from the end of the Power Rangers Super Megaforce 5″ figure series. Short-packed (one per case) and part of the final wave, this figure wasn’t necessarily found by many people in many of the big stores (I personally found my figure in a Walgreens).
The figure is an excellent addition to any fan’s collection and especially for fans of the original Gold Ranger. The articulation is on par with Ranger figures from the 5″ line from Bandai America and probably due to my personal love for the character cause it to be even more so amazing to photograph. Check out 46 high definition images of the Power Rangers Zeo Gold Ranger 5″ figure by clicking here or by clicking the ”Discuss on TokuNation Forums” link at the end of the story.
Do you have this figure – if so, what do you think? Any other Gold Ranger fans out there? Give some love to this awesome Ranger in the gallery discussion!
Rounding out our coverage of San Diego Comic Con 2015 we have a couple gems to share with you. Our own Kickback just sat down with Bandai of America for an interview on current & upcoming products and a few other goodies fans have been clamoring for with Power Rangers Legacy & Dino Charge.
Starting things off we discussed Power Rangers Legacy items. These releases were apparently never meant to be chronological like collectors had assumed, it happened to just turn out that way. Bandai knows that the Ninja & Shogun Megazords as well as the Falconzord are all very obvious choices for the future. Power Rangers Zeo is also internally very popular. They also think a Legacy Gold Zeo Ranger Staff is a interesting idea ;) Legacy Tor was mentioned as well but as a whole they don’t want to destroy collectors’ wallets.
The Thunder Megazord shown at SDCC should be able to assumed the Assault Team sled mode, but they’ll get with their designers and give us an answer post-con. The Legacy Blade Blaster displayed was entirely a mock-up as the retail version wasn’t ready yet. They would like to do a role play item and a mech/figure item together if possible kinda like Saba and Tigerzord. Again they don’t want to break the bank. Fans have also asked recently about a Black & Gold Dragonzord, so we posed that question to Bandai. There response is “would fans buy it?”
For Dino Charge Bandai still asserts that if a Ranger appears in show, of which there’s likely to be 11 between DC & Supercharge, then there’s a very good chance to see it in toy form. When asked about any possible gender swaps or sash swaps in the show, they referred back to the first answer. Bandai is also taking this position with Megazords, if it appears in the show footage it’s very likely to receive a toy. Villain figures are a key point of interest to Bandai as well since this is the first time since MMPR that waves are predominantly villains. Poisandra however is still cloudy. While Bandai is looking into it, it depends entirely on the characters trajectory in the show. They simply don’t know currently. The same can be said for why no Supercharge items were displayed – if it hasn’t been revealed in the show then they can’t necessarily show it in toy form without approval from Saban Brands.
Fans of Ranger Keys from Super Megaforce will also be sobered a bit. Currently no plans for more Ranger Keys as the play pattern is no longer current. Speaking of exclusives Bandai confirmed that they are upping their game for New York Comic Con to match the cons size. They will have an exclusive of some kind for this years show.
Bandai of America takes the fan opinion very seriously. They also want to cater to collectors and use the Legacy line as well as conventions to try and do that. They encourage fans to let them know what they think at conventions and such.
We’d like to thank Bandai of America for their time over the weekend for answering our questions and being awesome in general. The team is super excited for the future and can’t wait to show you what’s in store next. They hope you’ll come see them at this year’s NYCC.
We’re doing a series of updates on films starring or being created by former Power Rangers actors. And while TokuNation.com has avoided taking any public stance on any fan created films (due mostly in part to the sour taste left in everyone’s mouth due to one “film” in particular) we also think it’s only fair to inform our audience of these types of things because honestly – they’re pretty cool and we do hope they’re successful.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you should know that Austin St. John, also known as the original Red Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as well as the greatest Power Ranger of all time, the Zeo Gold Ranger, is set to star in a post-apocalyptic world as a survivor who must lead other survivors to safety. The movie is called Survival’s End and the perks for donating to the campaign are interesting – everything from your name in the credits to a camping trip with the “OG Red” himself! Check out Austin St. John discussing the movie below.
We want to note – this campaign is considered flexible funding – no matter if they hit their incredibly high goal of ($275,000), any money you elect to donate will be given regardless if the goal is reached. But Austin St. John has taken things to a new level in the realm of fundraising – he’s selling raffle tickets for your chance to win a number of awesome Power Rangers collectibles, with his autograph on it, and a super rare opportunity to own the Mighty Morphin Red Ranger helmet that he’s been carrying with him for about a year or so now.

After months of speculation on whether these would even be released, cryptic answers from Bandai of America, and more than one of these packs showing up on sites like TaoBao, most of the remaining Power Rangers Super Megaforce Ranger Key packs have FINALLY hit retail! And it looks like the new keys packs are indeed Toys R Us exclusives!
Twitter user @clong83[/URL] found these 8 new Ranger Key Packs at the Willow Grove, PA Toys R Us location! They do feature the TRU exclusive sticker so that narrows your search area to find these as most retailers begin to switch over to Dino Charge product fro the winter/spring.
Curiously the Operation Overdrive & Wild Force Pack B’s have yet to be seen at retail with this assortment. Could they possibly drop at a later date? Have they been pulled from this assortment all together? For now we just don’t know. The packs released thus far though are:
Alien Pack B
Yellow Alien Ranger
White Alien Ranger
Lost Galaxy Pack B
Lost Galaxy Green Ranger (translucent)
Lost Galaxy Yellow Ranger
Mystic Force Pack B
Mystic Force White Ranger
Ninja Storm Pack B

RPM Gold Ranger
SPD Pack B
