But now the malicious spirit has escaped and threatens the peaceful balance of planet Earth and all its creatures. To crush this evil threat, the Pai Zhuq masters must select three valiant members, teach them all there is to know about the ancient myths, and reveal to them the heroic mission of the secret order. Once accepted, the trio of Kung Fu warriors will be granted the special honor of becoming Power Rangers Jungle Fury, Earth’s only hope to stop the army of evil animal spirits from forcefully overtaking the human world!”</p> <p align="right"><i>--From the outside of the packaging</i></p> <p>Within all humans is a link to nature known as an Animal Spirit. Practitioners of Pai Zhuq train for many years in the ability to harness their individually-unique inner Animal Spirit in order to defend the world from Dai Shi and his monster minions. When one of these monsters grows to giant size, the three chosen warriors, the Power Rangers, expand their Animal Spirit power into a physical form known as a Spirit Zord. These Spirit Zords can combine into the Jungle Pride Megazord, a fast, agile, and skilled fighter which has the use of the Jungle Setsukon for hand-to-hand combat. When additional power is needed, the Jungle Pride Megazord can use its Savage Spin and Super Kick finishing attacks to put down monsters for good!</p> <hr> <p>The 4” Megazord figure and its weapons are composed of even amounts of PVC and ABS plastics. Other than the weapon, nothing on the figure is meant to come apart; both shoulder armor segments can pop off if too much pressure is applied. While paint is minimal to keep things simple (rather than by BA being careless, inconsiderate, or cheap), it is rather lacking along the back of the figure… something I would gladly have paid $1-2 more for to balance it out.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/576063-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_front_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (front)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576059-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_back_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (back)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576064-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_head_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="512" height="384" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (head)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576071-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_torso_+front_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (torso, front)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576070-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_torso_+back_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (torso, back)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576069-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_legs_+front_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (legs, front)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576068-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_legs_+back_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (legs, back)" /></p> <p>The point of having the Retrofire line is for both the alternate styling of the classic Megazord designs, and the action figure-like posability which their larger Deluxe-sized equivalents cannot do.<br /> Unlike their predecessors from 2009 and 2010 respectively, the 2011 releases do not come with a display stand.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/576108-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+posed+_6_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="640" height="358" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord posed (6)" /></p> <p align="center">(<i>Savage Spin</i> attack- torso and arms spin while head and legs remain stationary)</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/576109-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord-+Savage+Spin+attack+_1_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="640" height="358" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord- Savage Spin attack (1)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576110-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord-+Savage+Spin+attack+_2_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="640" height="358" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord- Savage Spin attack (2)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576111-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord-+Savage+Spin+attack+_3_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="640" height="358" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord- Savage Spin attack (3)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576112-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord-+Savage+Spin+attack+_4_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="640" height="358" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord- Savage Spin attack (4)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576113-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord-+Savage+Spin+attack+_5_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="640" height="358" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord- Savage Spin attack (5)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576114-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord-+Savage+Spin+attack+_6_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="640" height="358" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord- Savage Spin attack (6)" /></p> <p>Two weapons are provided.

Bandai America created two pairs of longer PVC claws that can be attached to the back of each fist!</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/576067-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_Jungle+Sansetsukon_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="512" height="384" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (Jungle Sansetsukon)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576065-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_holding+Jungle+Sansetsukon+in+one+hand_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (holding Jungle Sansetsukon in one hand)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576066-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_holding+Jungle+Sansetsukon+in+two+hands_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="640" height="358" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (holding Jungle Sansetsukon in two hands)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576062-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_claws_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="512" height="384" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (claws)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576061-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_claws+not+attached_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="512" height="384" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (claws not attached)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576060-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_claws+attached_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="512" height="384" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (claws attached)" /></p> <p>(It <i>is</i> possible for the Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord to hold on to the Jungle Sansetsukon at the same time that the extended claws are attached.)</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/576072-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+_with+claws+and+Jungle+Sansetsukon_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord (with claws and Jungle Sansetsukon)" /></p> <hr> <p>It seems that the Retrofire sub-line proved to be very popular among collectors in 2009, so much so that Bandai America has brought it back for Round Two. I have one thing to say to this: <i>WOO-HOO!</i> Despite some initial flaws and curiosities, Waves One and Two were a welcome answer to the posable-Megazord problem that has plagued the Deluxe-sized Megazord toys. Small as they were, they were stylistic interpretations that had action figure-like articulation, while not suffering from the curse of being merely armored Rangers or gimmick-filled statuettes with very restrictive, if any, articulation.</p> <p>(<i>By the way, Bandai America: Where In The Hell are my Retrofire Titan and Thundersaurus Megazords!? I was </i>really<i> looking forward to those! You promoted them, I saw figures advertised, but I never saw them in any stores near me.

Yes! Yes! Yes! <i>Yes!</i> I can’t believe I’m saying, but this set may very well be the first truly perfect Retrofire toy. It does what none of the previous six designs (nor its brother set also released at the same time in 2011, the Retrofire <a href="http://www.faindo.com/node/5914"><b>Delta Squad Megazord</b></a>) could do, and that is:</p> <ul> <li>Have a completely symmetrical range of motion, and high degree of articulation</li> <li>Have an excellent stylized adaptation from its Deluxe-sized and on-screen counterparts</li> <li>Compensate for a lack of function in the original design (specifically, the add-on claws)</li> <li>Slim the Megazord’s blocky/chunky armor into slimmer and more character-based proportions</li> <li>Have an excellent selection of materials and parts design</li> <li>Maintain adequate and screen-accurate paint coverage across both the front and back without losing too much in the name of reducing costs for production</li> </ul> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/576107-3/Retrofire+Jungle+Pride+Megazord+posed+_5_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="640" height="358" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Jungle Pride Megazord posed (5)" /></p> <p>All of this adds up to a fantastic adaptation and- in my opinion- highly successful figure. You want to know what I find most amazing? I don’t care for this Megazord’s design much at all, and yet I love this toy! <i>That</i>, ladies and gentlemen, <i>does not</i> happen very often with me.</p> <p>Bandai America, listen very carefully to me now, because I am about to give you a big hint as to how you can please both older collectors and kids at the same time: <i>Make all future Retrofire releases just like you did with the Jungle Pride Megazord</i>. About the only problem I have with this set is the PVC skirt panels don’t flex well and hinder the motion of the thighs a bit, and the head can’t look up or down despite being a ball-and-socket joint. I can overlook those easily. I am not joking here- this is a true diamond in the rough. It is a fully-posable action figure of a Megazord. Highly recommended!</p> <object width="480" height="390"><param name="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/v/hyUMjHCRI2Q?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/hyUMjHCRI2Q?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="390"></embed></object><p><br class="giImageBlock-clear-both" /></p></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-scale"> <h3 class="field-label">Scale</h3> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item"></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-chardesign"> <h3 class="field-label">Char.

Aliens have arrived on Earth and live peacefully with humans. At least they do until the Troobian Empire decides to destroy Earth. When the elite S.P.D. A-Squad mysteriously vanishes, that leaves only the B-Squad Rangers to defend Earth. When the A-Squad returns and captures Commander Cruger, the B-Squad must face them. As evil Broodwing has also invaded the Delta Base, the Power Rangers must combine their efforts to contain their enemies. A final showdown will reveal whether the B-Squad has the right stuff- and whether Earth will remain free.”</p> <p align="right"><i>--from the outside of the packaging</i></p> <p>The Delta Runners are large S.P.D. vehicles designed to deal with alien criminal activity on a larger scale. Each Delta Runner vehicle has a unique feature that helps out in battle, such as small manipulator arms, helicopter crane, and several other weapons. If individually the Delta Runners cannot overcome an opponent, they can combine together to form the Delta Squad Megazord, which has a Delta Sword and hand-held Mega Blaster pistol! When not in use or being repaired, the Delta Runners are stored safely inside the Delta Base, which also serves as the headquarters and Academy for the S.P.D. on Earth.</p> <hr> <p>The 4” Megazord figure and its weapon are composed entirely of ABS plastic. Other than the weapon, nothing on the figure is meant to come apart; both shoulder armor segments can pop off if too much pressure is applied. While paint is minimal to keep things simple (rather than by BA being careless, inconsiderate, or cheap), it is rather lacking along the back of the figure… something I would gladly have paid $1-2 more for to balance it out.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/576007-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_front_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (front)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576006-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_back_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (back)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576008-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_head_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="512" height="384" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (head)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576018-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_torso_+front_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (torso, front)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576017-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_torso_+back_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (torso, back)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576016-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_right+arm_+front_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (right arm, front)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576015-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_right+arm_+back_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (right arm, back)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576010-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_left+arm_+front_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (left arm, front)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576009-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_left+arm_+back_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (left arm, back)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576012-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_legs_+front_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (legs, front)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576011-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_legs_+back_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (legs, back)" /></p> <p>The point of having the Retrofire line is for both the alternate styling of the classic Megazord designs, and the action figure-like posability which their larger Deluxe-sized equivalents cannot do.<br /> Unlike their predecessors from 2009 and 2010 respectively, the 2011 releases do not come with a display stand.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/576019-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+posed+_1_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord posed (1)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576020-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+posed+_2_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="384" height="512" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord posed (2)" /></p> <p>The only weapon provided with the Delta Squad Megazord set is the Mega Blaster, which has been redesigned into a large rifle!</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/576013-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_Mega+Blaster_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="512" height="384" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (Mega Blaster)" /><br /> <img src="/gallery2/d/576014-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+_Mega+Blaster_+held+in+right+hand_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="640" height="358" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord (Mega Blaster, held in right hand)" /></p> <hr> <p>It seems that the Retrofire sub-line proved to be very popular among collectors in 2009, so much so that Bandai America has brought it back for Round Two.

Simple: this toy was designed- and probably built- in 2009, not when it was released in 2011. If you look at the bottom of the feet, they say “?BVS” (i.e. the Walt Disney Company, former owner of the <i>Power Rangers</i> franchise until 2010) and “BANDAI 2009 MADE IN CHINA”, respectively.<br /> Umm… whoops! This means that many of the problems I had with the first two waves of releases from 2009 are present here as well: limited paint applications, particularly along the back of the figure, and restricted/asymmetrical articulation in the arms specifically.<br /> The sucky part for this 2011 release, though, is that Bandai America didn’t give us either the Delta Sword, or- get this- a <i>display stand</i> (which this figure was obviously designed to accept). A new problem is that the legs are now restricted even more in articulation- they are always splayed a bit at the hips, which the previous releases didn’t have a problem with. The feet also don’t flex the same way compared to each other! Oh, and the Judgment Scanner in the left arm is attached to the figure’s upper arm rather than properly to the lower arm, so it interferes with the articulation of the shoulder.</p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/576023-3/Retrofire+Delta+Squad+Megazord+posed+with+Mega+Blaster+_3_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=1758a8b6039d65bd679d2f5ed0152501" width="640" height="358" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord posed with Mega Blaster (3)" /></p> <p>So what did I like about this set? Well, two things, really. The first is that- hey!- they even released it. The other is that I laughed pretty loudly when I saw the Mega Blaster upgraded from a little pew-pew pea shooter into a completely bad-ass giant stocky rifle!</p> <p>I was really looking forward to the Version 2.0 Retrofire line if they ever brought it back, but I guess I’ll have to wait a bit more for that. In the meantime, the Retrofire Delta Squad Megazord certainly lives up to the standards of the 2009 releases, so I have got to give it props for even existing since that was another Megazord I liked.</p> <object width="480" height="390"><param name="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/v/hyUMjHCRI2Q?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="https://www.youtube.com/v/hyUMjHCRI2Q?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="390"></embed></object><p><br class="giImageBlock-clear-both" /></p></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-scale"> <h3 class="field-label">Scale</h3> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item"></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-chardesign"> <h3 class="field-label">Char.

Though the tone of the series is rather serious from the past- taking place in a post-apocalyptic world- the individual Zord Attack Vehicles resemble modern-day machines like hot rods and cargo planes with animal-like features and large expressive eyes. In addition to their speed on the ground, the red-colored Eagle Racer could fly through the air. The High Octane Megazord is armed with only a Super Saber and defensive shield. The Zord Attack Vehicles are always at the Rangers&rsquo; disposal because Dr. K designed them to appear from the emblems on their chests and be powered by their own Engine Cell cartridges.</p> <hr /> <p>The 4&rdquo; Megazord figure and its weapons are composed of even amounts of PVC and ABS plastics. Other than the weapons, nothing on the figure is meant to come apart; the right shoulder &amp; fist and head can pop off if too much pressure is applied. While paint is minimal to keep things simple (rather than by BA being careless, inconsiderate, or cheap), it is rather lacking along the back and legs of the figure&hellip; something I would have paid $1-2 more for to balance it out. The point of having the <em>Retrofire</em> line is for both the alternate styling of the classic Megazord designs, and the action figure-like poseability which their larger Deluxe-sized equivalents cannot do. To allow a wider range of poses, an easy-to-assemble two-part silver ABS display stand is included in each set, the base of which is shaped like the <em>Power Rangers</em>&rsquo; trademark lightning bolt. Because the peg at the top of the stand is angled, the figure will never &lsquo;stand&rsquo; upright vertically, only diagonally. (<em>For some action poses, that is fine, but if you want more level poses, just take the figure off the stand.</em>)</p> <p><strong>. . .</strong></p> <p>Other than the basic provided display stand, the Megazord has a PVC Super Saber and hollow shield. The sword can only be gripped in the right fist, and the shield can be attached to a hole only on the left forearm. For the High Octane Megazord, none of the joints ratchet- all free-turn with no resistance other than friction. Its head is on a ball-&amp;-socket joint. The waist can turn all the way around. The arms, despite being nearly identical in appearance, behave in different ways. While the right shoulder can pitch outwards and the right fist can twist all the way around, the left arm is different. The upper left arm twists around but does not pitch outwards, and the left elbow is flexible while the right is not. Clearly the arms were designed to achieve a few specific, on-screen-oriented poses with the weapons rather than act as a fully-capable action figure. The hips are also very poseable- able to swing both outwards, twist vertically, and pitch forward/backwards. The only restriction on the hips is on the skirt armor, which is PVC. The skirt armor is flexible to a certain degree, but it will break or wear out if pressed too hard and for too long. And really, this is the only restriction with the figure that may be unavoidable. And finally with the legs, the knees can also pitch backwards to 135-degrees, and both ankles can pitch downwards a bit as well.</p> <hr /> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/471435-6/Retrofire+Wild+Force+_L__+Mighty+Morphin_+_C__+and+High+Octane+_R_+Megazords+posed.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=d95f584858a3f3eff45838d8e0cf0552" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Wild Force (L), Mighty Morphin&#039; (C), and High Octane (R) Megazords posed" /> The <em>Retrofire</em> line is an answer to one of my long-held protests, and that is having a poseable representation of a Megazord without having the toy be a Ranger with attachable armored sections or a static-pose 3&rdquo; figure with just one-axis shoulders &amp; maybe an action feature if we&rsquo;re lucky. I can completely understand [now] why the Deluxe-sized Megazords can&rsquo;t be posed beyond just the shoulders, and that is because their size and the complexity of such a design would be prohibitively expensive on a yearly basis. While I wish the <em>Retrofire</em> sets were about 1-2&rdquo; taller and had slightly better paint apps, I am still quite satisfied with what we have here. Additionally, these sets are a reinterpretation of classic designs without being completely new or reboots or skewed by some random and pointless copyright infringement issues. If a Megazord were to appear in a Japanese <em>anime</em> series, I am confident that they would look just like this (as if jumping out from the screen) rather than big and bulky like their Deluxe-sized toy counterparts. They may not be transformable, but this is just as good- a true action figure of our favorite Megazord! <img src="/gallery2/d/471562-6/Retrofire+High+Octane+Megazord+posed+_6_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=d95f584858a3f3eff45838d8e0cf0552" width="640" height="480" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire High Octane Megazord posed (6)" /> This <em>Retrofire</em> set is identical in poseability to the <strong><em>Retrofire</em> Mighty Morphin&rsquo; Megazord</strong>- featuring the same strengths and faults even if their outward appearance is different. Compared to the larger [Deluxe] <strong>High Octane Megazord</strong>, this one makes-up for some of its faults (most-notably in proportions) and it benefits greatly from the <em>Retrofire</em> style by slimming it down and making it look like it&rsquo;s moving even when it&rsquo;s not (thin legs, wider shoulders, smaller waist, etc.). Additionally, the shield is an actual shield with less holes in it rather than the leftover crap from the almost-as-tiny Bear Crawler on the [Deluxe]-version. I also thought some additional paint could have been used on the sides of the lower legs, and perhaps the back of the shoulder armor. However, unlike the larger transforming version- where all of the Zord Attack vehicles had large-yet-clearly-stoned eyes- they are treated as simple headlights that are painted light blue here, which I liked. The Super Saber was also better designed to look like an actual sword rather than a spear or pike, and has a slight curve on it; that was an improvement in my mind without taking away from the original design, but makes now it the longest sword of the three <em>Retrofire</em> sets! Considering how boring the [Deluxe]-sized version is, the <em>Retrofire</em> High Octane Megazord is a breath of fresh air. Highly recommended!</p> <p><object width="320" height="265"><param name="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/v/CNKVMOCDk0c&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"

While each Wild Zord contributed a separate attack feature when combined in Megazord form, it also used the Blue Shark&rsquo;s tail as its basic-use sword, and its final Mega Roar blast to finish off giant Org monsters. The unique quality of the Wild Zords, however, is their ability to share their bodies and powers with the Megazord, allowing it to take on those powers in the form of numerous special weapons &amp; upgrades- some examples of this being the Wild Force Megazord Sword and Shield Mode, &hellip;Predator Mode, or &hellip;Spear and Knuckle Mode. When not being used, the Wild Zords all reside on the flying Animarium island hidden in the clouds above Turtle Cove, and are summoned when the Rangers use their Crystal Sabers.</p> <hr /> <p>The 4&rdquo; Megazord figure and its weapons are composed of mostly ABS and partially PVC plastics. Other than the sword, nothing on the figure is meant to come apart; the right fist and head can pop off if too much pressure is applied. While paint is minimal to keep things simple (<em>rather than by BA being careless, inconsiderate, or cheap</em>), it is rather lacking along the left arm and back of the figure... something I would have paid $1-2 more for to balance it out. The point of having the <em>Retrofire</em> line is for both the alternate styling of the classic Megazord designs, and the action figure-like poseability which their larger Deluxe-sized equivalents cannot do. To allow a wider range of poses, an easy-to-assemble two-part silver ABS display stand is included in each set, the base of which is shaped like the <em>Power Rangers</em>&rsquo; trademark lightning bolt. Because the peg at the top of the stand is angled, the figure will never &lsquo;stand&rsquo; upright vertically, only diagonally. (<em>For some action poses, that is fine, but if you want more level poses, just take the figure off the stand.</em>)</p> <p><strong>. . .</strong></p> <p>Other than the basic provided display stand, the Megazord has a PVC Shark Sword. The sword can only be gripped in the right fist. Due to the materials used for the right hand, you have to wedge the Blue Shark&rsquo;s jaw open a little in order to get the sword in there; once in place, it grips very tightly. For the Wild Force Megazord, none of the joints ratchet- all free-turn with no resistance other than friction. Its head is on a ball-&amp;-socket joint, but sits so low on it that it can really only turn side-to-side. The waist can turn all the way around. The arms- unlike the other two <em>Retrofire</em> sets- behave in only a slightly different way from each other. While the right fist cannot twist at all, the left arm is different and the left fist can twist all the way around. Both shoulders only pitch up-and-down all the way around, but both elbows can only twist sideways! Clearly the arms were designed to achieve a few specific, on-screen-oriented poses with the weapons rather than act as a fully-capable action figure. The hips are also very poseable- able to swing both outwards, twist vertically, and pitch forward/backwards. The only restriction on the hips is on the skirt armor, which is PVC. The skirt armor is flexible to a certain degree, but it will break or wear out if pressed too hard and for too long. And really, this is the only restriction with the figure that may be unavoidable. However, in keeping with the design of the &lsquo;real&rsquo; Wild Force Megazord, there is no skirt armor along the back of its hips since those joints were already exposed. (<em>This allows a clear view of how the hip joints operate, compared to the other two </em>Retrofire<em> sets which have the same joints but are then completely covered.</em>) And finally with the legs, the knees can also pitch backwards to 90-degrees, but both ankles cannot move. The feet of the Megazord, oddly, are angled slightly upwards, so getting it to stand upright on its own is sometimes a challenge!</p> <hr /> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/471435-6/Retrofire+Wild+Force+_L__+Mighty+Morphin_+_C__+and+High+Octane+_R_+Megazords+posed.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=d95f584858a3f3eff45838d8e0cf0552" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Wild Force (L), Mighty Morphin&#039; (C), and High Octane (R) Megazords posed" /> The <em>Retrofire</em> line is an answer to one of my long-held protests, and that is having a poseable representation of a Megazord without having the toy be a Ranger with attachable armored sections or a static-pose 3&rdquo; figure with just one-axis shoulders &amp; maybe an action feature if we&rsquo;re lucky. I can completely understand [now] why the Deluxe-sized Megazords can&rsquo;t be posed beyond just the shoulders, and that is because their size and the complexity of such a design would be prohibitively expensive on a yearly basis. While I wish the <em>Retrofire</em> sets were about 1-2&rdquo; taller and had slightly better paint apps, I am still quite satisfied with what we have here. Additionally, these sets are a reinterpretation of classic designs without being completely new or reboots or skewed by some random and pointless copyright infringement issues. If a Megazord were to appear in a Japanese <em>anime</em> series, I am confident that they would look just like this (as if jumping out from the screen) rather than big and bulky like their Deluxe-sized toy counterparts. They may not be transformable, but this is just as good- a true action figure of our favorite Megazord! <img src="/gallery2/d/471404-6/Retrofire+Wild+Force+Megazord+posed+_7_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=d95f584858a3f3eff45838d8e0cf0552" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Wild Force Megazord posed (7)" /> I have to say that, of the three <em>Retrofire</em> sets, this one is the most irritating. While the others have up-and-down motion in the head, this one does not. The arms are annoying too- only able to swing forward/backwards at the shoulders, and slide side-to-side at the elbows. While sculpted just fine, I don&rsquo;t see how a lack of movement in these arm joints helps any- it&rsquo;s very restricting, and I would say that the <strong>Deluxe Wild Force Megazord</strong> was more effective here! Similarly with the feet- I found that slight tilt on the bottom of them as completely unnecessary, despite the style of the figure overall. By contrast, what seems like an error I actually appreciated, and that is the exposed hips in back. While not exactly the same as its larger counterpart, it does make more sense to expose them than give it additional skirt armor because it&rsquo;s emulating slightly how the transformation works. As was the case with the other two sets, this one could have done with a little more paint- notably on the left arm and the lower legs. So, the <em>Retrofire</em> Wild Force Megazord is a mixed bag of tricks- I like the overall <em>anime</em>-style of the figure and line details, but some of the poseability is confusing &amp; annoying.</p> <p><object width="320" height="265"><param name="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/v/CNKVMOCDk0c&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param

It was a combination of five Dinozords which could form an Attack Tank Mode, and was armed with the Power Sword &amp; Mastodon Shield and a forehead blaster. Towering 333&rsquo;-tall and weighing 570 tons, the Megazord rocked the world and gave Rita Repulsa frequent migraines as it pounded through her foolish plans and clumsy monsters. When not in use, the separate Dinozords are hidden in far-off areas like forests and deserts, and they are repaired there by Zordon and his robotic assistant Alpha-5.</p> <hr /> <p>The 4&rdquo; Megazord figure and its weapons are composed of even amounts of PVC and ABS plastics. Other than the weapons, nothing on the figure is meant to come apart; the right shoulder &amp; fist and head can pop off if too much pressure is applied. While paint is minimal to keep things simple (<em>rather than by BA being careless, inconsiderate, or cheap</em>), it is rather lacking along the back of the figure... something I would have paid $1-2 more for to balance it out. The point of having the <em>Retrofire</em> line is for both the alternate styling of the classic Megazord designs, and the action figure-like poseability which their larger Deluxe-sized equivalents cannot do. To allow a wider range of poses, an easy-to-assemble two-part silver ABS display stand is included in each set, the base of which is shaped like the <em>Power Rangers</em>&rsquo; trademark lightning bolt. Because the peg at the top of the stand is angled, the figure will never &lsquo;stand&rsquo; upright vertically, only diagonally. (<em>For some action poses, that is fine, but if you want more level poses, just take the figure off the stand.</em>)</p> <p><strong>. . .</strong></p> <p>Other than the basic provided display stand, the Megazord has a PVC Power Sword and hollow Mastodon Shield. The sword can only be gripped in the right fist, and the shield can be attached to a hole only on the left forearm. For the Mighty Morphin&rsquo; Megazord, none of the joints ratchet- all free-turn with no resistance other than friction. Its head is on a ball-&amp;-socket joint. The waist can turn all the way around. The arms, despite being nearly identical in appearance, behave in different ways. While the right shoulder can pitch outwards and the right fist can twist all the way around, the left arm is different. The upper left arm twists around but does not pitch outwards, and the left elbow is flexible while the right is not. Clearly the arms were designed to achieve a few specific, on-screen-oriented poses with the weapons rather than act as a fully-capable action figure. The hips are also very poseable- able to swing both outwards, twist vertically, and pitch forward/backwards. The only restriction on the hips is on the skirt armor, which is PVC. The skirt armor is flexible to a certain degree, but it will break or wear out if pressed too hard and for too long. And really, this is the only restriction with the figure that may be unavoidable. And finally with the legs, the knees can also pitch backwards beyond 135-degrees, and both ankles can pitch downwards a bit as well.</p> <hr /> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/471435-6/Retrofire+Wild+Force+_L__+Mighty+Morphin_+_C__+and+High+Octane+_R_+Megazords+posed.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=6967f4421447f835d7d2145117c55dc0" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Wild Force (L), Mighty Morphin&#039; (C), and High Octane (R) Megazords posed" />The <em>Retrofire</em> line is an answer to one of my long-held protests, and that is having a poseable representation of a Megazord without having the toy be a Ranger with attachable armored sections or a static-pose 3&rdquo; figure with just one-axis shoulders &amp; maybe an action feature if we&rsquo;re lucky. I can completely understand [now] why the Deluxe-sized Megazords can&rsquo;t be posed beyond just the shoulders, and that is because their size and the complexity of such a design would be prohibitively expensive on a yearly basis. While I wish the <em>Retrofire</em> sets were about 1-2&rdquo; taller and had slightly better paint apps, I am still quite satisfied with what we have here. Additionally, these sets are a reinterpretation of classic designs without being completely new or reboots or skewed by some random and pointless copyright infringement issues. If a Megazord were to appear in a Japanese <em>anime</em> series, I am confident that they would look just like this (as if jumping out from the screen) rather than big and bulky like their Deluxe-sized toy counterparts. They may not be transformable, but this is just as good- a true action figure of our favorite Megazord! <img src="/gallery2/d/471284-6/Retrofire+Mighty+Morphin_+Megazord+posed+_6_.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=6967f4421447f835d7d2145117c55dc0" width="480" height="640" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Mighty Morphin&#039; Megazord posed (6)" /> It is with great and welcome nostalgia that I possess this set. The <em>anime</em> styling lends itself well, and brings the &lsquo;character&rsquo; to life in a way that the original Deluxe-sized set could never have achieved. It is also nice to see that some of the subtle styling of the right foot and both shoulders more closely resemble that seen on-screen in season one of &ldquo;<em>Mighty Morphin Power Rangers</em>&rdquo; rather than on the <strong>Deluxe Megazord</strong> toy from 1993. Aside from the oddly-chosen way the arms behave compared to each other, the minor limits with the skirt armor, and the rather-noticeable lack of paint on the back &amp; arms of the figure, the <em>Retrofire</em> Mighty Morphin&rsquo; Megazord is definitely something you want to collect. Highly recommended!</p> <p><object width="320" height="265"><param name="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/v/CNKVMOCDk0c&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed src="https://www.youtube.com/v/CNKVMOCDk0c&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" width="320" height="265" /></object></p> <p><img src="/gallery2/d/471435-6/Retrofire+Wild+Force+_L__+Mighty+Morphin_+_C__+and+High+Octane+_R_+Megazords+posed.JPG?g2_GALLERYSID=6967f4421447f835d7d2145117c55dc0" width="640" height="427" class="giThumbnail" alt="Retrofire Wild Force (L), Mighty Morphin&#039;
