From the set of Power Rangers Beast Morphers filming in New Zealand, a brand new power-up mode has surfaced!
The newest armor can be seen in the photo above, originally shared by Twitter user @thepowerscoop. The photo depicts the season’s Red Ranger battling an army of evil footsoldiers, sporting never-before-seen gear.
The power-up mode features a new chest plate, shoulder pads, and wrist guards. It appears to be an original creation for Power Rangers Beast Morphers as it was not previously seen on the season’s Super Sentai counterpart, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.
Fans will immediately liken the new armor to those from recent seasons that were also original to Power Rangers. These power-up modes were always kept inside the Megazord cockpit, including Power Rangers Ninja Steel‘s Ninja Master Mode, and Power Rangers Dino Charge‘s Dino Drive Mode.
If the power-up mode seen above is indeed accessed via the Rangers’ Megazord, it would appear that Power Rangers Beast Morphers will break the streak of original modes staying inside the Megazord cockpit.
Of course, the power-up mode could be separate from the Megazords entirely. Could it be accessed via a cycle, akin to Power Rangers Jungle Fury‘s Strike Rider Mode? Fans will have to find out when Power Rangers Beast Morphers premieres in 2019 on Nickelodeon.
At this time, it is unknown if any of the other Rangers, including the Blue or Yellow Ranger, will also receive a power-up mode similar to the one above.
Power Rangers Beast Morphers will have 22 episodes, and air on Nickelodeon in early 2019 (click here to recap).
Hasbro’s Power Rangers Beast Morphers toys will begin hitting store shelves in Spring 2019. Fans can check out the official Power Rangers Beast Morphers synopsis below.
Set in the future, a secret agency combines a newly discovered substance called “Morph-X” with animal DNA to create the Power Rangers Beast Morphers team. The Rangers must fight off an evil sentient computer virus bent on taking over the source of all Ranger power, the Morphin Grid itself. Featuring never-before-seen leather suits and an all-new beast-themed arsenal (including dynamic new Zords), fans should get ready for a season full of secret ops and morphinominal fun.
Power Rangers Beast Morphers stars Rorrie Travis as Devon the Red Ranger, Jasmeet Baduwalia as Ravi the Blue Ranger, Jackie Scislowski as Zoey the Yellow Ranger, Abraham Rodriguez as Nate, Colby Strong as Blaze, Liana Ramirez as Roxy, Kristina Ho as Betty, and Cosme Flores as Ben.
