Two brand new Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel toys are on the way – both sporting original designs by Bandai America!
In an attempt to bolster toy sales, Bandai America has created their own original Megazord cockpit weapon, and their own original Zord. This is not be the first time the toy giant has produced their own designs as toys, although it is currently unknown if either product will actually appear in-show.
Up first is the Super Blaster (seen above) – a powerful weapon that strongly resembles a lion. With dart firing ability and a Ninja Power Star included, the Super Blaster is expected to be a part of Bandai America’s Deluxe Battle Gear range of toys, joining products such as the Ninja Master Blade from Power Rangers Ninja Steel‘s toy line.
The Super Blaster was first seen packaged as a small accessory with Bandai America’s Ninja Super Steel Mode 5″ action figures. For this reason, the weapon is presumed to be exclusive to the team’s Megazord cockpit, much like many of Bandai’s Deluxe Battle Gear predecessors.
The second new toy to be revealed is the Simian Sniper Zord (seen above), a brand-new ape Zord that sports a massive cannon on its backside. With missile firing ability, the Simian Sniper Zord is ready to take down enemies in the Power Rangers’ quest to defeat Madame Odius.
At this time, it is unknown of the Simian Sniper Zord has any type of transforming ability. The Zord was never featured in Shuriken Sentai Ninninger, the Japanese source footage fueling Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel‘s overseas adaption.
Both new toys were revealed at the UK Toy Fair, with photos provided by Amazon & Twitter user @nightmere10. Each toy will release later in 2018, with price points yet to be named.
In Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel, the heroic teens find themselves face-to-face with an old enemy when they discover Madame Odius is still alive and more determined than ever to steal the Ninja Nexus Prism and revive its powers for her nefarious purposes. Now it’s up to the Rangers, and some unexpected help from new friends, to use the power of teamwork to protect the Prism, defeat Odius and save the world!
Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel airs every Saturday at 12pm ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
