There’s no doubt that the original Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers Megazord is iconic. Over the years, this toy has been produced multiple times in different incarnations. Even this year we’ve got the Imaginext version, a reissue of last year’s Legacy version and an upcoming Black and Gold Edition.
Now, Saban Brands has tasked Ranger Nation to help them induct nominate the iconic Power Rangers Megazord for the National Toy Hall of Fame!
Every year the National Toy Hall of Fame inducts two classic toys that have continuously delighted both younger and older generations. And what toy is more LEGENDARY than the Power Rangers Megazord? This toy was truly the first of its kind and has continued to be a fan-favorite, reinvigorated with each new Power Rangers theme over the past 22 years.
Saban Brands is asking the Power Force and all of Ranger Nation to work together to cement the Megazord’s place in toy history at the November 2015 National Toy Hall of Fame induction.
