    Well if BoA does release a Legacy Thunderzord, here are a list of things I would love to see....

    The Red Dragon Thunderzord being fully articulated in the neck and tail areas with heavy ratcheting joints.

    The Fighter Mode not having any overtly obvious Zord Builder ports. In other words, no butt plus on my Red Dragon Thunderzord!!!

    The sled/Chi Palace accessory for the possible Ultrazord combination if ever.

    The Unicorn and Griffin Thunderzords being hollow enough to have the legs of the Red Dragon to fit in for combination.

    I would love extra chrome on certain areas like the Lion's paws, the Phoenix tail and the sword.

    Enough die-cast to give the set a good weight but not too much where it can hardly stand.
    Looking at the Megadragonzord in this one.

    Maybe some swappable face plates for the helmet to emulate the different eyes for the Thunder Megazord as a bonus.

    A bit of extra articulation if possible for the Thunder Megazord.

    And maybe a spinning staff gimmick where you can either lock the right hand of the Red Dragon Fighter Mode or a button that can make him spin his staff. Also maybe some telescoping for the staff for the Megazord and Ultrazord formations.

    no offense or anything but isn't that kinda asking for too much? personally I'd be happy with screen accurate decals and the sled having some kind of mounting clip for tor so that way it actually stays together

    Most people will be paying $80-$100 for this and you think that is asking too much?

    Honestly, I am getting tired of Bandai of America cheaping out on the vast majority of Ranger toys in the US and how most of the good stuff being imports with long wait times or ridiculous shipping costs.

    The Zord Builder system has no place in a line focused on adult collectors and all these demands aren't out there seeing how well made the Dragonzord was and how awesome Titanus looks.

    No decals, it needs to be painted on details that is screen accurate. The era for stickers as long past.

    well still some of the things you listed I can see being good but who really wants a telescoping bow staff for the dragon and the spinning wrist gimmick I can't see working well since the arm is made from two of the dragons legs which are separate pieces

    The staff tends to look undersized in the other Megazord combinations especially with the Thunder Ultrazord and the spinning wrist could be placed higher on the arm. Like with the original but with a choice to unratchet the joint to allow more free movement.

    Same here. The first Zord set I got was the Thunderzords and would go on hiatus till the Rescue Megazord of Turbo and would collect In Space and then Time Force.

    http://news.tokunation.com/2014/09/05/new-legacy-tigerzord-saba-images-pre-orders-available-20682

    So we finally have new images of the Legacy Tigerzord and I can't say I am 100% convinced if there will even be compatibility with the unsure possibility of a future Legacy Thundermegazord.

    Unless the legs of the Legacy Tigerzord allows for a connection like in the old Dairenoh mold or if it can maybe extend, I am still not convinced in buying one. Especially with there being figures that are coming soon like the Masterpiece Ultra Magnus,Soul of Chogoki Gaogaigar and Masterpiece Star Saber.

    That Tigerzord looks down right amazing. I cannot wait for that thing to come out. OH my god I'm getting an orgasm just looking at it. It is show accurate, looks very posseable, and is all paint with no stickers.

    As awesome as the Tigerzord is, he is still just a piece in the Thunderzord collection. We need the other Thunderzords now!!!!

    They'll come soon enough.

    I've still got all of my original Thunderzords (including Serpenterra), so I am in no rush even though I want them all all now.

    It shall still be inexcusable if they didn't release them or didn't improve on the outstanding base mold by shoehorning the Zord Builder gimmick. We don't want no Supreme Beast Machines Cheetor for $100.

    Home Page:
    Anybody else curious as how how Bandai will do the Red Dragon Zord with the increased articulation like on Dragonzord and Titanus? Not to mention, how will they do the legs on the Thunder Megazord since Red Dragon's legs would normally slide into the Unicorn and Griffin, but Tigerzord's got zord builder ports. My idea of how that would work is have zord builder connections on panels that fold out of the way for Thunder Megazord mode, but hey, that's just me.

    Fixes.

    They really need to make a correction set.
    Remember how the legs are connected on the old DaiZyyJin mold? Yeah, the cylinder design snapped into the butts of the Tiger and Triceratops. That's why it was so sturdy.
    Correct it with new Triceratops and Tiger molds; where the ZB port is farther in so the entire thing is more sturdy; and in addition, more metal on the feet.

    And we all know those heavy feet on the Legacy Dragonzord are the cause of all evil. They just need to make them fit better with the Megazord legs and have less metal. And an actual connection system.

    $40 call it a day, everyone buys it.

    Got him at TRU for $136 yesterday.

    At that price, he was worth it. Anything more would have been a rip off. I love him, but the pieces he came with to prevent the Megazord's legs from bending is garbage. They don't lock into anything, so they just make it so the tiger and tricera just pop out of the pegs, which is way worse.

    Of course, I wouldn't mind if they did an updated Megazord (again) that is all paint with no stickers at all and some slightly modifications made to the legs and hell, maybe some additional articulation in the arms.

    So has anyone heard anything new for the legacy line or are we in a slow period while they finish up redesigns for the next thing?
