|This article is about a set of toys based on a robo/Megazord in Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers'|
Daizyujin was released in Japan with accurate stickers and a chrome sword. The mecha was show-accurate with the ability to go from tank mode to robo mode. It included cannons and a sword.
Megazord was a rerelease of the Zyuranger Daizyujin. This was rereleased in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers line with new decals. The "Megazord" Toy was released in the Fall of 1993. The toy featured several unusual decal changes, most of which involved changing the red decals found on the Sabre-Tooth Tiger to a dull cyan.
Black version (MMPR)
The deluxe version also saw a special black repaint release. It had gold decals. In either form, the decals follow the show-accurate designs. As a Power Rangers toy it was released as Special Edition Megazord.
Vehicle Zord System Release (MMPR)

- by Bandai America (2015)
In 2010, a new mold to go with the toyline for the remastered series was released, with some conversion modifications, as well as the ability to combine with toy-exclusive bikes. The new mold is noticeable more simple compared to the original toy, such as combining previous multiple parts, as well as being much smaller. Due to this, it is not compatible with the Dragonzord or Titanus from the 1993 toyline, though it can however combine with any of the other Megazords released in the Zord Builder toy line.. The 2010 release officially renamed the mecha to "Dino Megazord" so as to set it apart from other Megazords.
This version of the toy was rereleased again in 2013 as as the Legacy Megazord for the Power Rangers 20 toyline. This version of the toy uses the same mold as the 2010 toy, though it has diecast metal parts, chrome parts, accurate painted details, a hard plastic chrome sword like 1992's Daizyunjin and the 1993 Megazord, and package that replicates the original 1993 Megazord's packaging. The Legacy Megazord box has stats which include the following- Height: 333 ft.; Weight: 172,000 lbs.; Power: 50,000 megavolts; Weapons: Titanium Power Sword, Laser Emitting Eyes, Mammoth Shield, Power Punch Missiles, Thunder Cannons, and Pterodactyl Chest Plate. Both the 2010 & 2013 releases are compatible with the 2014 release of Dragonzord and Titanus.
The Legacy Megazord was reissued for 2015. The major changes include stickers being already applied to the mold, the handle of the Power Sword fitting much easier into the fists and the box containing minor alterations.
In Fall 2015, a black & gold version of the Legacy Megazord will be released, it is a reproduction of the Black and Gold Daizyujin from 1992 & the Special Edition release of the original Megazord from 1994.
Smaller Transforming Sets
Plastic Model Kit (MMPR)
- by Bandai Asia (1994)
The Plastic Model Kit of Megazord was by released per individual zords. The plastic used was only grey, red, yellow and blue. The set had complete show-accurate decals. The transformation to Megazord mode was identical to the deluxe release except that the Tyranosaurus and Megazord heads were interchangeable (instead of hinged to each other), and the Mastodon legs and Megazord arms were also interchangable (as opposed to being two sides of a spin-joint). It also lacked the cannons.
Mix n Morph
- by Bandai Asia (2009)
Dino Megazord was released with a Red Ranger figure for the Mix & Morph subline of the MMPR toyline. The figure could separate at the head, arms, and waist to form other combos with other Megazords from the line, or even the Rangers.
It was later rereleased in the Mix & Morph Megazord pack with all the other Megazords in the line.

Non-deluxe large Megazords
Puradera/Special Size Megazords
The Puradera Megazord was designed to look a bit closer to the screen version. The Tyrannosaurus, Mastodon and Pterodactyl parts do not transform. The Sabertooth Tiger and Triceratops can be removed to form simplified versions of the zord forms.
Under Power Rangers, it was not marketed as 'Special Size', however, it fell under the same category of toys as those that followed it. It was also released with decals matching the Deluxe version.
Remote Control Megazord
- by Marchon (1993)
A 14-inch moving version of the Megazord with sounds. It is battery-operated and can be controlled with a wire stick.
