The Dino Thunder tribute keeps on going with a gallery of the deluxe Dimetrodon Zord!
The Dimetrozord is one of five auxiliary zords used in Dino Thunder that can be summoned by either the Black Ranger or the Triassic Ranger. This zord can replace the Tyranno Drill arm and allows the Thundersaurus Megazord to perform the Dimetro Saw Blade finishing move. The Dimetrozord also forms the inner right leg of the Triceramax Megazord.
The deluxe figure is approximately 8 inches long and has a spinning 'saw blade' gimmick that runs on the motor in the Tyrannozord. The U.S. release of the Dimetrozord was packaged with the Dx Dino Stegazord.
From the Kamen Rider Fourze Movie: Space Here we come! Here is Kamen Rider Fourze in his movie special state, Meteor Fusion!
Designed by the XVII computer, powered by the 40 switches flipped by those who believe in Gentaro's power of friendship, Kengo was able to construct the Earth shaped switch combining both Fourze and Meteor's power into one awesome package.
Gaburincho! There's more than one dinosaur sentai in town and this time we're taking a look at 2 more releases from the newest one. Today's gallery focuses on DX Zyudenryu Zakutor & Parasagun from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger! Kyoryugreen & Blacks partners are the first 2 individual mecha releases outside of the DX Kyoryuzin set.
They can combine with Kyoryuzin himself to form Kyoryuzin Western or with the upcoming PteraidenOh to form PteraidenOh Western! There are also a variety of mix and match combos for Kyoryuzins' limbs thanks to the fact that left arms can be used as rights and vice versa. Be sure to tune in later in the week when we bring you the gallery and review of Ankydon and Kyoryuzin Macho!
