One could argue that the year of 2010, during the Mighty Morphin’ reversion, was one of the darkest times in the fandom. So dark it caused Saban Brands to reacquire Power Rangers all together!
As a fan of both the show and the toy lines I must convey that the 2010 Bandai America Toy Line was one of, if not the worst, toy line in the show’s short history. (Honorable mention to the Overdrive Toyline for sure!)
Disney licensed and created with Bandai many insane products from creepy Ranger Cell-Clocks to adding new strange armor or powers to the beloved Mighty Morphin’ Rangers.
Let’s take a look back at some of the horrendous products that Bandai and Disney attempted to sell you.
**Pls note this is not a complete list of 2010 items but they are among some of the very worst.
Zord Builder is Born
In 2010, Bandai America introduced us to Zord Builder. During this time there was no real working Zords that you could combine with (until the Samurai Zords debuted the following year). Zord Builder, whether you love it or hate it, has changed or even revolutionized Power Rangers toys and 2010 was the first time it was introduced. Now it is ingrained in all of the Power Rangers Zords; Not all things in 2010 were terrible!
Mix N Morph & Titanus
In 2010 Bandai America began to integrate a new gimmick that had seen popularity with Ben 10.
Mix N Morph allowed the kids to change the appendages with other Rangers or Megazords!
The 2010 Titanus contained a Mix N Morph Base in which a mechanism combines the figures for you.
Small packs of these “Keys” were also available for purchase. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
