Deluxe Isis Megazord
Review by JoshB
The Deluxe Wild Force Isis Megazord is one of the best megazords to date. It is comprised of 5 zords: Deer, Giraffe, Aardvark, Rhino and Hawk.
The hawk has 3 different electronic sounds in its tail: Falcon calling, laser beam and battle call.
The Wildforce Megazords come from the Japanese sentai show Gaorangers. The original Japanese name of this toy is Gao Icarus.
If you are looking for play value, the Isis Megazord satisfies in every way. Press a button on the giraffe, and the Gao Spear extends. A similar button on the deer activates the Gao CrossHorn (the antlers move). You can turn the armadillo into a ball and use the spring action of the rhino's horn to kick it across the room. Also, the wings of Isis fold over to create "Ultimate Defense Mode".
Isis is fairly straightforward to transform. The deer and the giraffe simply fold in the legs. The most challenging part is the rhino, but once you do it once you don't forget it.
The Isis Megazord is very similar to its Japanese counterpart, Gao Icarus. All of the die-cast metal parts remained intact, although some of the paint detail is missing for the US version. Bandai has made big improvements in the US versions of its toys since the early days of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.
