“At its premiere in 1993, the ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ resonated with people around the world, turning it into a global pop culture phenomenon,” said Janet Hsu, CEO at Saban Brands. “Since then, the Power Rangers TV series has continued to exemplify teamwork and inclusivity which is something we are extremely proud of and will be showcasing throughout our 25th anniversary year as we look to celebrate this historic milestone with fans of all ages.”

Created by Haim Saban and launched in 1993, Power Rangers is one of the most-watched television programs in the United States and remains one of the top-rated and longest running kids live-action series in television history. The series and subsequent movies, including 2017’s feature film with Lionsgate, follows the adventures of a group of ordinary teens who morph into superheroes and save the world from evil.

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.

To be a part of this EPIC Power Rangers history-making event, visit http://www.toyhalloffame.org/nominate and nominate the Power Rangers Megazord before the end of July!
