You know the exercise, the Ranger fans: a new show, a new Ranger team and a bunch of new Zords that can combine and turn into Megazord. With Beast Morphers on the way, it all starts again – but this time the toy front has changed a bit, thanks to Hasbro's Power Rangers era.
[Full disclosure: the Power Rangers franchise was created, and previously owned, by Haim Saban, who has ownership interest in Univision Communications, which itself currently owns Gizmodo Media Group, the network of websites io9 is part of.]
Beast Morphers is the first Power Rangers series released among the franchise's new owners, Hasbro. This not only affects the show itself, but also the toys that are now also under Hasbro Auspices.
Prior to the New York Toy Fair, the company unveiled its plans for ranger verses of parts and parts toys, from RPG accessories to action figures, but io9 can now exclusively show what one of them is highlights of the first waves of Beast Morphers Merchandise: The transforming Zords that you can collect to form the most powerful weapon in the arsenal of the Beast Morpher team: Beast-X Megazord and Beast-X Ultrazord. 19659009] In the fall of 2019, the New Zords will fit into two categories: three of them are dual-converting Zords that can switch between vehicle and animal modes, while two triple-changing Zords with Vehicle, Tier and have their own Represent robot mode.

Let's start with the three double-changing Zords, available for $ 25. The Blue Ranger's Beast Wheeler Zord can turn into both a mechanized gorilla and a wheeler truck, while the Yellow Ranger's Beast Chopper transforms between a jackrabbit and an attack helicopter. To them comes the mysterious Beast Jet Zord, who can switch between Scarab and Jet mode.
The two triple-changing Zords each back $ 30 – the Ranger Ranger's Beast Racer can switch from bike mode to a Cheetah form and their own robot mode and form the basis for the Beast-X Megazord. In the meantime, the Gold Ranger's Beast Wrecker can transform between robot, mantis and a construction "wrecker".
While each individual Zord has its own gameplay functions, the actual morphinomale magic happens when you bring them all together: Combine The Zords of the Red, Blue, and Yellow Ranger make up the Beast X Megazord, which you can see below. Adding the Beast Wrecker and Beast Jet Zord allows kids to make the ultimate Beast-X Ultrazord
