Of all the SRCs that I have,

Of all the SRCs that I have, which includes all Super Sentai ones so far, Daizyujin is by far my favorite. Not just because of all the nostalgia and stuff, but also because, as a action figure, it outshines the others in almost every aspect (specially, joint stiffness and paintjob).

I hope it sells well, so perhaps Bandai may se a public for older Sentai super robots. It would be nice to see the long losts Battle Fever Robo and Sun Vulcan, shown once as prototypes.

I would buy Battle Fever.

I would buy Battle Fever. Their suits may look like barf, but that is a sick and nasty looking robot! In a good way!

Get the SOC Battle Fever. It

Get the SOC Battle Fever. It is in scale with the SRC and is a freaking amazing figure. Not a lot of articulation but enough to be fun. However, the amount of diecast content on that figure and its weapons is the stuff of legend. I did not know how much diecast was in it when I got it. When it showed up, and I pulled it out for display, I was STUNNED

The SRC Sentai robots seem to be focusing on Power Rangers era Sentai so I am not sure you will ever see anything from before sadly. I would love a Jet Icarus or a Sun Vulcan!

You take that back! Battle

You take that back! Battle Japan's suit is cool in a funky way. The rest of the suits do look like barf.

Actually, I think if the Daizuyjin sells well, we are going to see the exact opposite. Bandai will more likely focus on everything post-Zyuranger because there is a bigger market for those toys. Just look at the recent SRC Sentai reveals. They have shown the Daibouken and the Gekitouja, but no word on the previously mentioned Sun Vulcan Robo or Battle Fever Robo.

Well, the SOC Battlefever

Well, the SOC Battlefever Robo is IN scale with the SRC so I doubt we will ever see it for SRC. Besides the SOC is awesome and a must own. All the SRC that have come to market thus far has been Power Rangers era thus far so I agree with you that we probably won't see earlier mecha.

Sad really.

Thanks for sharing! I was not aware that the SOC Battle Fever Robo was in scale with the the SRC line. I have been meaning to get one, but have yet to pull the trigger.

It is sad that Bandai may shelf any plans for releasing pre-Zyuranger mecha in the SRC line, but at least we get some of the cooler recent mecha. I personally cannot wait for the SRC Gekitouja. That is one that definitely deserves a highly-articulated toy!

You will not regret pulling the trigger on Battle Fever Robo. He simply is to awesome.

The great five is a very popular robot if I'm not mistaken.

I wonder if Bandai will reissue them as SRC too.

I think that would all depend

I think that would all depend on whether or not Bandai continues to make only the mecha that have appeared in Power Rangers. As things are going now, I doubt it. But I would love for them to do other mecha. I would kill for an SRC Jet Icarus.

That makes me as well. The only hope we have was at SDCC , I heard more than myself telling Bluefin that they would like to see earlier mecha. Heck, I would be happy with a OhRanger Robo!

We need Dino Mega Zord power now!

Forget "we" need, "I" need" Dino Mega Zord power now!

Another great review! There is so much cool stuff. I have to get this guy so I can pose him with the Monster Arts Godzilla and Mechagodzilla I don't have :(

"JM: If you are a fan of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and want a non-transforming action figure of the original Megazord, then look no further. In fact, why haven't you gotten him yet? GET OUT THERE AND BUY HIM."

YES SIR!

Count me in!

I bit the bullet and just bought one. Actually I also got a Monster Arts Godzilla and Mechagozilla to go with it. It looks like the toys will be in pretty good scale with each other. These were the toys I've been waiting for and I did not want to miss out PLUS I hope this encourages Bandai to bring out the diecast, transforming collectors edition Mega Zord.

Still working on the in scale mini city out of card board ;)

If you are still looking for this guy, amazon.com has him for $52.30 and if you have prime you get free 2 day shipping!

Nice! I too have been looking to get the SH Monsterarts Godzilla and maybe Mechagodzilla to go with my newly acquired Little Godzilla.

I know a lot of people are hoping for a Jet Icarus from Jetman so we may get a few pre-MMPR sentai mecha after all.
Me, I just hope we get the Super Train Megazord.

I just want them to do a SRC for each of the Sentai mecha. I love them.

Memories

This robot brings back a lot of memories from my teenage years, I remember how the first Power Rangers were born and the popularity they gained.

One funny thing about the show was when they showed the scenes were the Megazord was holding the sword, you could see the hand of the actor (that was inside the suit) just wearing a glove, instead of the big robot fists.

I'm slightly on the fence about getting one, time will tell.

Thanks for the review.

I feel like Bandai should make articulated transforming mecha.

I feel like Bandai should make articulated transforming mecha. I'm sure it wouldn't be so hard to make transforming SRC's or articulated DX toys.
