Never seen

Hm, I never seen the black one. Color wise, I prefer the black one.

Megazord double-vision

There were a couple of occasions where I did double-takes when they were sitting side-by-side. I'd seen the blue Astro Megazord for years, and then suddenly having its color-polar opposite next to it felt weird when I looked at it! Of the [few] repaints I have of other toys, this was the first time this has happened to me.

Though I prefer the blue ver., I kinda like the dark and menacing look to this one.

I wish my hat was a space

I wish my hat was a space shuttle. My hat is just a hat. :(

The Blue version of this toy

The Blue version of this toy has to be one of the best Power Rangers toys ever made, and now to discover they made a BLACK one... i might have to track one of these down!

This figure's design has a cool feel and look to it, and is a very classic old-school influenced design, at least to me. Mine sat well with the rest of my robot collection, until I had to sell it. :( I highly recommend that you check this toy out, even if you don't like most Power Rangers.

Oh, I completely agree

Oh, I completely agree with that assessment; the Astro Megazord/Galaxy Mega definitely has an old school-feel to it; like it's been updated, but hasn't lost what made it memorable or nostalgic (kinda like the Transformers Classics line does). But it's also very solid, it has good features both inside & outside, and it's neither difficult nor overly simple to understand how to use.

Plus, it just looks cool and comfortable in either mode, which is something you usually can't say for Super Sentai toy mecha that have multiple components. If it's a detractor that it doesn't have multiple component mecha, then you may not go for it. But they are very wonderful designs.

Not a big Sentai fan

I'm not a big fan of most Sentai robots, but Astro looks to be an exception. It looks pretty awesome in the pictures, and the space-shuttle as a hat is nice.

I see the fact that there aren't very many seperate pieces that combine together as a plus. A big problem I have with many Sentai robots is that they often look jumbled up. As if the designers just took whatever pieces they had lying around and made a giant robot out of it.

In contrast, Astro has a very cohesive design. It looks like it would be a very heroic machine!

Yes, many Super Sentai

Yes, many Super Sentai combining robos can look jumbled together. A very good example of this was most of the Gougou Vehicle line from "Gougou Sentai Boukenger" (2006)- even though they all had a similar look, they were very cobbled together and disorganized in many respects. I'm also very tempted to throw last year's Geki Beasts line from "Jyuken Sentai GekiRanger" in there; the only one I liked was the DX Jyuken Gattai GekiFire (which I'm currently trying to hunt down at mint/MSRP, help!).

I Learnt Something Today!

America actually released a deluxe repaint of one of their exsisting toys for the proceeding season from where the original came from? That is AMAZING! A pity the electronics aren't included, but like you said, it did make this version cheaper to buy. I haven't seen this at all in Europe, so no doubt this was a US exclusive. Great review. :)

This cracks me up

American-exclusive Black Repaints always do.

The light and sound functions weren't removed from all of these. Mine still has them. I'm guessing the first to hit store shelves still had them and electronics were only removed in a second production run.
