 These are not my pics. Razzle1337 & Pocky Bandit have found these All Yellow keys on eBay but theres no Yellow Ranger Costumes (like the Halloween kid costumes that have the all-color keys at Toys R Us). One eBay listing says its from SDCC but no one reported this key. Also, Saban Brands gave Power Force members at PMC the All Red Super Megaforce key and translucent Mighty Morphin Green key that were reported to be at SDCC. Plus those all Red Keys were everywhere on the tables at the Power Force Breakfast. If anyone has any info, please let me know!!!


William Rodriguez says he went to the Nick Hotel Super Megaforce weekend they gave out the Pink, Red and Yellow Opaque keys. Pocky Bandit hypothesized that they were from the Nick Hotel since the eBay seller was from Florida. I live in Miami, I am out of money and wished I had gone.

5.5" figures to 5" figures
They went from 5.5" Auto Morphins in MMPR to 5 inch figures in Power Rangers Turbo. They remained that way until Mighty Morphin Reversion in 2010. No official reason has been given to why they change from 5.5 to 5 but through the years, the molds and articulation have changed. During the Disney Era, some figures were show-accurate and not show-accurate.

5 inch to 4 inch Figures
Bandai announced the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers reversion figure would be to be 4 inches, along with Kamen Rider Dragon Knight, because of the economy and to save on plastic. Fans didn't like this but by Megaforce they put up with it. 

4 inches back to 5 inches
For some unknown reason, they went back to 5 inch figures with Super Megaforce, they kept doing 4 inch but with limited paint and limited Rangers, no female Rangers. I think the reason they did 4 inch figures with limited articulation and color for younger kids. Having a 4 year-old nephew, he takes off a lot of paint off the figures with his play. But fans don't like the idea of kids having 'cheap toys.' Fans love the 5 inch 'Action Heroes' but no one knows about why the size change occurred.

Calf extensions

Later Legendary figures are slightly taller, having long calves. Shades of Grey says that MMPR Red, MMPR Green, Lightspeed Rescue Red, Zeo Red, Samurai Gold (also TRU 6-pack), Samurai Red (also TRU 6-pack), and Megaforce Red (also TRU 6-pack) are ones he spotted with longer legs.

Size Chart
I attempted to write down what figure sizes from Bandai (not counting plush, jumbo or child size figures) were available through the years, I might have forgotten some, kindly leave a comment on it with attitude please. Only comment once, I have to approve it.

 Thanks to @duleking16 for spotting this at Toys R Us. According to Razzle1337, this is now available on the west coast, hopefully soon throughout the USA. This is the Exclusive Deluxe Legendary Morpher and 20 Ranger Keys. Originally Razzle1337 found a pic it would have 5 members of MMPR, 5 of Megaforce, 5 of Samurai and 5 of Super Megaforce.
But later Fury Diamond of Rangercrew found a server pic that it would have the keys above, the box boasts that 3 are exclusive--Yellow Dino, Quantum and Silver Space Ranger.

But for now, Pink Zeo and Pink Turbo are also unavailable in packs. In upcoming packs, it said there will (or might) be In Space Set B, Time Force B and Dino Thunder B. I hope Silver, Quantum and Yellow appear in those, it worries me what will be in those packs. Fans are hating how the set is $80. But like most Toys R Us exclusives, it should lower soon. Not a lot. Another complaint I seen from fans on Twitter and boards is that the other keys are covered so it is hard to see if they have good paint jobs or not. I complained before about the keys available, I would have changed a couple. I am currently underfunded so I won't be picking this one up unless it is severely reduced.



I have covered the blind pack figures before but I didn't put the secret codes before, so here there are. Samurai ones are not in major retailers anymore but maybe you still find the blind packs on ebay or discount stores. Megaforce ones can still be found at Walgreens. Super Megaforce ones are rare but have been spotted at Target. You find these codes on the back of the packages on the sides embossed, not printed.

All items here were, are or will be only available at Toys R Us unless other wise specified.

Legacy Power Morpher
 Deluxe Power Morpher, even better than the Zyuranger version and the MMPR version. There was different versions of these morphers, the first wave had glitches. It came with five different coins. The back look like the Zyuranger Dino Buckler. It can fit as an adult buckle. It came out in 2013. This item was originally 60 to 70 dollars.

Deluxe Legacy Dino Megazord
This came out in 2013, not available in 2014 but said to be re-released for a short time very soon. It is diecast. This originally was 70 to 80 dollars in the US.

 Legacy Mask Collection
This originally came out as $30 but it wouldn't sell, it eventually decreased to $15 for a little bit. Some come with mistakes, like two red helmets or wrong name on the wrong mask.

 Green and White Ranger's Power Morpher
At the San Diego Comic Con 2013, a special gold version was released. Later this was announced and released in early 2014. It was the same price as the morpher with 5 coins, this only comes with two coins.

 Legacy Dragonzord
This has come out in late 2014.

 Dragon Dagger
Came out in 2014, it comes sounds.

 Legacy Red and Green Rangers
5 inch figures put in similar boxes to the 1993 8 inch figures. These two came with White and Lord Zedd in one wave. They have been re-released after the other wave of the other colors. Green comes with silver stripe on helmet, which was accidentally put on a Morphin Madness $5 off coupon. The Action Hero MM Green has no silver stripe.

 White Ranger and Lord Zedd
Came in same wave as Red and Green. Lord Zedd was exclusively sold at SDCC 2014.

 Legacy Blue and Black Rangers

Since Halloween is upon us, I figured I'd cover the masks they made. Japan has them for many years since Sentai started I believe.
 Samurai Red Masks
The one on left is from Bandai and is Mega Mode. It is heavy duty, with a nose protector in the back. The one on the right is from Party City, a basic mask with skinny string on back.

Samurai Blue and Gold Masks
Both in Mega Mode, I think there was a regular gold one too. 

Green and Pink Samurai Mega Mode Masks
First time there was a Pink Ranger mask outside Halloween, these came out in 2012.

Red Shogun Ranger Helmet
It is a full kid helmet, it fits some adults, it is like the Mission Helmets but without sound effects.

Robo Knight and Red Megaforce Mask
Deluxe masks with nose guards and black straps, came with cards

 Super Megaforce Masks

Operation Overdrive Mission Helmet
Not show accurate but it was for kids, some adults and had a video game inside.


Red Jungle Fury Mission Helmet
Similar but of the Master Mode, show accurate with the claw gauntlets.





Since Halloween is upon us, I figured I'd cover the masks and training sets that were available for kids through the years. Japan has had masks for practically every Sentai but Power Rangers had it only for Halloween until SPD (2005).

Power Rangers SPD Academy Training Set
The first of the Training sets, with  Red mask, not show accurate with gold badge on helmet. Came with a hostler, belt buckle and two blasters.

 
Omega Ranger Academy Training Set
Omega Ranger got one too, not sure if Blue did. It came with belt buckle, hostler, one repainted blaster and Omega Morpher. Mask is more or less show accurate. 

Mystic Force Training Sets
 Red and Green sets, each came with masks, cape smock, ranger-color morphers and Magi Staffs. Red came with a generic buckle and Green came with a thunder bolt badge.

 
Solaris Knight Training Set
Solaris Knight mask (not show accurate), smock, buckle, morpher and repainted Mystic Staff.

 Titan Megazord Training Set
The Phoenix Titan came with a smock, mask, Titan Megazord sword, buckle and Solaris Knight buckle. The first set to be a zord.

Red Operation Overdrive Academy Training Set
Repainted SPD blaster, Red OO smock, mask, buckle and Overdrive Tracker.

Mercury Ranger Academy Training Set
Mercury Ranger mask, smock, morpher and buckle with repainted SPD blaster.

  
 Red Sentinel Ranger Training Set
Red Sentinel Ranger (Battlizer) mask, smock, morpher and badge with Red and Sentinel Knight. SPD Blaster was repainted again.

Red Tiger Training Set
Red Jungle Fury Ranger with mask, smock, nunchucks and buckle.

Blue Jaguar Training Set
Blue Jungle Fury Ranger with mask, smock (sigh) repainted nunchucks and buckle.





 Jungle Master Rhino Ranger Training Set

 Power Rangers RPM Red Ranger Rally Crew Set
Came with Red mask, morpher, sword, blaster, buckle and card.

 Power Rangers RPM Red Ranger Rally Crew Set
Came with Blue mask, blaster, blue individual weapon, yellow individual weapon, morpher, buckle and card.

  
Gold RPM Ranger Engine Crew Set
Came with Gold Ranger mask, Cloud Hatchet, Morpher, buckle and the other weapon. Gold Ranger did not get a Halloween costume.

 Mighty Morphin Red Ranger Training Set
Came with blaster, mask, sword, morpher and lord zedd prop back in 2010.

Red Ranger Training Gear
There was different versions of this, smaller to bigger, Toys R Us exclusive too. 

 Blue Ranger Training Gear
This one came with the Hydro Bow.

 Gold Samurai Ranger Training Gear
Came with all pictured, I think there was a simple one and deluxe one. 

 Red Megaforce Training Gear
A lot of versions of this, small, bigger and Toys R Us Exclusive.

Blue Ranger Training Gear
Strange it came with Ultra Mode on the box but nothing about it in the items.


Red Super Megaforce Training Set
Regular and Deluxe Toys R Us exclusive set. The Toys R Us exclusive set came with a glittery translucent key. Blue came with a simple set. They come with open visor masks, unlike the Halloween costumes.

Silver Super Megaforce Training Set
There is only the Toy R Us Exclusive set which comes with glittery translucent key and blaster mode of the trident. The morpher is the same version of the regular Silver Legendary Morpher.


found that Good Morning America/ABC News burned the Silver Ranger Gold Mode deluxe kids costume this morning, showing that the material burns easily. That it is a fire danger. 





My special weeks are back, presenting Toy Week (10/26 to 11/1/2014)

UPDATED 10/28/14
Updated with the Space Titanus

I covered Toy-Only Megazords during the Disney Era (Operation Overdrive to RPM) but now I'm covering some zords that were new and only for toys. Meaning they never appeared in Sentai either, so I am not including Shogun EngineOh that was in the RPM toyline and Battle Buggy in the SPD toyline.
Scorpion Zord
A re-painted and re-designed (slightly) Clawzord for Power Rangers Samurai coming with Deker figure. It didn't sell well as it still seen in stores. It became an arm for Samurai Megazord.

 Zeo Racer Zord
In Super Megaforce toyline, this zord was a redesigned SPD Patrol Zord. It becomes parts on top of the Legendary Megazord similar to the SPD Legendary Megazord. 

Amnonite Zord
Razzle1337 found this listing for Dino Charge, hopefully it does come out, I would like to see it. It seems to be based on the above Zyudenchi/Dino Charger.

Claw Cannon zord
To have another zord to go along with the Lion, Chameleon and Wolf, they made a zord based on the Claw Cannon, based on the Cheetah and Jaguar. It came in the Transforming Battle Megazord package.

Power Rangers in Space Silver Titanus Carrier Zord
This was based on Titanus but was considered a new zord as it was space themed. It could carry the Mega Voyager Megazord. It was not on the show.






Episode Summary:
We see "Previously On..." talking about Vekar's death at the hands of the Rangers. Out of the rubble, Vrak takes out a blue feather, saying Vekar was a distraction. That he is prepared with his plan, a giant drill is planted on Earth. Orion gets garbage bags and says goodbye to Ernie, he hears a noise in the darkness of the mall and there are familiar glowing green eyes behind him that say "Surprise." Later Vrak has Orion unconscious draining his energy at his underwater base. His plan is to drain their Legendary powers to turn someone against them. Troy in his school bus gets out to see a giant drill, which is seen by the other Rangers, they are called by Gosei and they go to the quarry.

In the command center, the Legendary Ranger keys turn to stone. They meet with Vrak, which turns into his cyborg form. Vrak talks about his brother being a failure. Emma says how can you talk about your own brother in that way. Troy wonders where Orion is. They morph in Megaforce and use their cards and try hitting Vrak but he mirrors their attacks. Vrak says he is power incarnate, with his new alien power source. He changes through his modes and shows his true form. The Rangers try going to Super Mega Mode but it doesn't work. Vrak tells the Rangers what we already know about Orion and the rock keys.

Orion will be drained of his life force and nothing will be left by an empty shell. (cool imagery) They form their blaster but Vrak blasts them before using it. They shoot their individual weapons with no luck. Troy fights Vrak. Troy does his sky strike but is pushed away. All the Rangers get blasted at. Vrak says they will get crushed like bugs, Troy mentions they killed his bug friends. Vrak knocks the Rangers out. They are all on the ground groaning. Vrak says someone else will destroy them. He takes out a little Lion zord, which Noah calls "Robo Knight zord."

In Vrak's base, Robo Knight is chained up and suffering though a fog with black energy. Vrak says the sixth ranger power is corrupted and will reprogram him. Vrak calls two 'Commanders,' saying they were loyal to him. Dark Robo Knight walks towards to them (without red visor) and calls Vrak his lord. The Rangers walk into the command center and see the stone keys. Gia asks about Orion. Gosei says defeating Vrak is the only way to get Orion. Troy says Vrak is one step ahead of them. At the pier, the Rangers meet Vrak and the two Commanders appear and turn into arm gauntlets.

The Rangers use their cards but no good. Vrak says Orion doesn't belong on this planet, saying he'll use his Legendary powers. Robo Knight arrives, shocking the Rangers. Emma and Jake say they must save him, they go forward and Robo Kngiht stops them with his sword. He says he is eliminate the protectors of Earth, that Vrak showed him another way. Noah goes forward and Robo Knight holds him up by the neck and throws him. He fights the Rangers. Vrak says they haven't suffered enough, he wants to see them see the drills destroy their planet. They de-morph, Troy says he can't believe after all this time, they have to fight Robo Knight and they'll go Ultra.

Vrak plans a drill at the sea and the Rangers in Ultra Mode face him. Emma says Vrak is a coward to let Robo Knight fight him. Robo Knight blasts at them. Troy tries speaking to him, Vrak says their friend is gone. Noah charges towards Vrak but is kicked down. Robo Knight and Noah fight. The Rangers go to help but one of the monsters face them. Vrak says every time they use their Ultra powers, the monster will take it. Noah attacks Vrak but is knocked down again. Vrak has two orbs, powers he stole from Orion and talking to Noah about science. The monster blasts the Rangers down. Noah says Orion and Robo Knight's powers are good. Vrak says nothing will be left. 

Vrak and Noah battle. The other four do attacks on the white unicorn-looking Commander. Noah slashes Vrak and hurts him. Vrak calls Zombats to make the monster big, he leaves with Robo Knight. The Rangers call their Mechazords after a year (Jake saying they still rock). They form the Sea Megazord and attack the monster. They do Victory Charge attack and the monster absorbs the powers. They destroy the monster. Vrak sees this from his lab. The monster becomes a drill in the sea, the Rangers freak out. Vrak laughs at his success.

Episode Review:
Fans have complained that there is no Gokaiger footage in this episode and it is mostly Goseiger. Basically it interrupts the Gokaiger footage and finishes the Goseiger story. And it had a lot to cover so the first part come off running, giving Orion one or two lines and immediately knocking him out. It would had been nice if the Rangers had mentioned Robo Knight before. Or even had Gosei explain why they had to go to the quarry. The crowds of people seeing the drills was a nice touch. But it would've been nice to see the Armada react to it or even try to interfere like they did with Professor Cog.

My nephew has been looking forward to 'Evil Robo Knight' for a whole year. He had seen Goseiger but of course, not understanding Japanese (which he calls Spanish--any language other than English is Spanish for him), he couldn't wait to see it in Power Rangers. I feel like this episode is like past Megaforce episodes in that it rushed the footage and not much human footage. Vrak and Robo Knight's voice actors do great jobs and I kind of miss them. In the dialogue, they tied Vrak to current characters like the Armada and Orion. One thing people didn't like was Gosei's voice running when Dark Robo Knight called his stuff, but I guess it's just a recorded voice.


Also the use of the Mechazords... It is that they basically abandoned them. I thought it would've been better to  have had the Megaforce powers destroyed and not have the annoying Megaforce to Super Megaforce every ep but I guess they did it to excuse these two episodes. But basically this stalls the Super Megaforce storyline. I think they did this to tie in Vrak with Vekar but they could've just had this at the end of the first season.


 These are not my pics. Razzle1337 & Pocky Bandit have found these All Yellow keys on eBay but theres no Yellow Ranger Costumes (like the Halloween kid costumes that have the all-color keys at Toys R Us). One eBay listing says its from SDCC but no one reported this key. Also, Saban Brands gave Power Force members at PMC the All Red Super Megaforce key and translucent Mighty Morphin Green key that were reported to be at SDCC. Plus those all Red Keys were everywhere on the tables at the Power Force Breakfast. If anyone has any info, please let me know!!!


William Rodriguez says he went to the Nick Hotel Super Megaforce weekend they gave out the Pink, Red and Yellow Opaque keys. Pocky Bandit hypothesized that they were from the Nick Hotel since the eBay seller was from Florida. I live in Miami, I am out of money and wished I had gone.

All items here were, are or will be only available at Toys R Us unless other wise specified.

Legacy Power Morpher
 Deluxe Power Morpher, even better than the Zyuranger version and the MMPR version. There was different versions of these morphers, the first wave had glitches. It came with five different coins. The back look like the Zyuranger Dino Buckler. It can fit as an adult buckle. It came out in 2013. This item was originally 60 to 70 dollars.

Deluxe Legacy Dino Megazord
This came out in 2013, not available in 2014 but said to be re-released for a short time very soon. It is diecast. This originally was 70 to 80 dollars in the US.

 Legacy Mask Collection
This originally came out as $30 but it wouldn't sell, it eventually decreased to $15 for a little bit. Some come with mistakes, like two red helmets or wrong name on the wrong mask.

 Green and White Ranger's Power Morpher
At the San Diego Comic Con 2013, a special gold version was released. Later this was announced and released in early 2014. It was the same price as the morpher with 5 coins, this only comes with two coins.

Since Halloween is upon us, I figured I'd cover the masks they made. Japan has them for many years since Sentai started I believe.
 Samurai Red Masks
The one on left is from Bandai and is Mega Mode. It is heavy duty, with a nose protector in the back. The one on the right is from Party City, a basic mask with skinny string on back.

Both in Mega Mode, I think there was a regular gold one too.

Power Rangers SPD Academy Training Set
The first of the Training sets, with  Red mask, not show accurate with gold badge on helmet. Came with a hostler, belt buckle and two blasters.

 
Omega Ranger Academy Training Set
Omega Ranger got one too, not sure if Blue did. It came with belt buckle, hostler, one repainted blaster and Omega Morpher. Mask is more or less show accurate.

 Red and Green sets, each came with masks, cape smock, ranger-color morphers and Magi Staffs. Red came with a generic buckle and Green came with a thunder bolt badge.

 
Solaris Knight Training Set
Solaris Knight mask (not show accurate), smock, buckle, morpher and repainted Mystic Staff.

Red Ranger Training Gear
There was different versions of this, smaller to bigger, Toys R Us exclusive too. 

 Blue Ranger Training Gear
This one came with the Hydro Bow.

 Gold Samurai Ranger Training Gear
Came with all pictured, I think there was a simple one and deluxe one. 

 Red Megaforce Training Gear
A lot of versions of this, small, bigger and Toys R Us Exclusive.

Blue Ranger Training Gear
Strange it came with Ultra Mode on the box but nothing about it in the items.


Red Super Megaforce Training Set
Regular and Deluxe Toys R Us exclusive set. The Toys R Us exclusive set came with a glittery translucent key. Blue came with a simple set. They come with open visor masks, unlike the Halloween costumes.

Silver Super Megaforce Training Set
There is only the Toy R Us Exclusive set which comes with glittery translucent key and blaster mode of the trident. The morpher is the same version of the regular Silver Legendary Morpher.


found that Good Morning America/ABC News burned the Silver Ranger Gold Mode deluxe kids costume this morning, showing that the material burns easily. That it is a fire danger. 





My special weeks are back, presenting Toy Week (10/26 to 11/1/2014)

UPDATED 10/28/14
Updated with the Space Titanus

I covered Toy-Only Megazords during the Disney Era (Operation Overdrive to RPM) but now I'm covering some zords that were new and only for toys. Meaning they never appeared in Sentai either, so I am not including Shogun EngineOh that was in the RPM toyline and Battle Buggy in the SPD toyline.
Scorpion Zord
A re-painted and re-designed (slightly) Clawzord for Power Rangers Samurai coming with Deker figure. It didn't sell well as it still seen in stores. It became an arm for Samurai Megazord.

 Zeo Racer Zord
In Super Megaforce toyline, this zord was a redesigned SPD Patrol Zord. It becomes parts on top of the Legendary Megazord similar to the SPD Legendary Megazord. 

Amnonite Zord
Razzle1337 found this listing for Dino Charge, hopefully it does come out, I would like to see it. It seems to be based on the above Zyudenchi/Dino Charger.

Claw Cannon zord
To have another zord to go along with the Lion, Chameleon and Wolf, they made a zord based on the Claw Cannon, based on the Cheetah and Jaguar. It came in the Transforming Battle Megazord package.

Power Rangers in Space Silver Titanus Carrier Zord
This was based on Titanus but was considered a new zord as it was space themed. It could carry the Mega Voyager Megazord. It was not on the show.






Episode Summary:
We see "Previously On..." talking about Vekar's death at the hands of the Rangers. Out of the rubble, Vrak takes out a blue feather, saying Vekar was a distraction. That he is prepared with his plan, a giant drill is planted on Earth. Orion gets garbage bags and says goodbye to Ernie, he hears a noise in the darkness of the mall and there are familiar glowing green eyes behind him that say "Surprise." Later Vrak has Orion unconscious draining his energy at his underwater base. His plan is to drain their Legendary powers to turn someone against them. Troy in his school bus gets out to see a giant drill, which is seen by the other Rangers, they are called by Gosei and they go to the quarry.

In the command center, the Legendary Ranger keys turn to stone. They meet with Vrak, which turns into his cyborg form. Vrak talks about his brother being a failure. Emma says how can you talk about your own brother in that way. Troy wonders where Orion is. They morph in Megaforce and use their cards and try hitting Vrak but he mirrors their attacks. Vrak says he is power incarnate, with his new alien power source. He changes through his modes and shows his true form. The Rangers try going to Super Mega Mode but it doesn't work. Vrak tells the Rangers what we already know about Orion and the rock keys.

Orion will be drained of his life force and nothing will be left by an empty shell. (cool imagery) They form their blaster but Vrak blasts them before using it. They shoot their individual weapons with no luck. Troy fights Vrak. Troy does his sky strike but is pushed away. All the Rangers get blasted at. Vrak says they will get crushed like bugs, Troy mentions they killed his bug friends. Vrak knocks the Rangers out. They are all on the ground groaning. Vrak says someone else will destroy them. He takes out a little Lion zord, which Noah calls "Robo Knight zord."

In Vrak's base, Robo Knight is chained up and suffering though a fog with black energy. Vrak says the sixth ranger power is corrupted and will reprogram him. Vrak calls two 'Commanders,' saying they were loyal to him. Dark Robo Knight walks towards to them (without red visor) and calls Vrak his lord. The Rangers walk into the command center and see the stone keys. Gia asks about Orion. Gosei says defeating Vrak is the only way to get Orion. Troy says Vrak is one step ahead of them. At the pier, the Rangers meet Vrak and the two Commanders appear and turn into arm gauntlets.

The Rangers use their cards but no good. Vrak says Orion doesn't belong on this planet, saying he'll use his Legendary powers. Robo Knight arrives, shocking the Rangers. Emma and Jake say they must save him, they go forward and Robo Kngiht stops them with his sword. He says he is eliminate the protectors of Earth, that Vrak showed him another way. Noah goes forward and Robo Knight holds him up by the neck and throws him. He fights the Rangers. Vrak says they haven't suffered enough, he wants to see them see the drills destroy their planet. They de-morph, Troy says he can't believe after all this time, they have to fight Robo Knight and they'll go Ultra.

Vrak plans a drill at the sea and the Rangers in Ultra Mode face him. Emma says Vrak is a coward to let Robo Knight fight him. Robo Knight blasts at them. Troy tries speaking to him, Vrak says their friend is gone. Noah charges towards Vrak but is kicked down. Robo Knight and Noah fight. The Rangers go to help but one of the monsters face them. Vrak says every time they use their Ultra powers, the monster will take it. Noah attacks Vrak but is knocked down again. Vrak has two orbs, powers he stole from Orion and talking to Noah about science. The monster blasts the Rangers down. Noah says Orion and Robo Knight's powers are good. Vrak says nothing will be left. 

Vrak and Noah battle. The other four do attacks on the white unicorn-looking Commander. Noah slashes Vrak and hurts him. Vrak calls Zombats to make the monster big, he leaves with Robo Knight. The Rangers call their Mechazords after a year (Jake saying they still rock). They form the Sea Megazord and attack the monster. They do Victory Charge attack and the monster absorbs the powers. They destroy the monster. Vrak sees this from his lab. The monster becomes a drill in the sea, the Rangers freak out. Vrak laughs at his success.

Episode Review:
Fans have complained that there is no Gokaiger footage in this episode and it is mostly Goseiger. Basically it interrupts the Gokaiger footage and finishes the Goseiger story. And it had a lot to cover so the first part come off running, giving Orion one or two lines and immediately knocking him out. It would had been nice if the Rangers had mentioned Robo Knight before. Or even had Gosei explain why they had to go to the quarry. The crowds of people seeing the drills was a nice touch. But it would've been nice to see the Armada react to it or even try to interfere like they did with Professor Cog.

My nephew has been looking forward to 'Evil Robo Knight' for a whole year. He had seen Goseiger but of course, not understanding Japanese (which he calls Spanish--any language other than English is Spanish for him), he couldn't wait to see it in Power Rangers. I feel like this episode is like past Megaforce episodes in that it rushed the footage and not much human footage. Vrak and Robo Knight's voice actors do great jobs and I kind of miss them. In the dialogue, they tied Vrak to current characters like the Armada and Orion. One thing people didn't like was Gosei's voice running when Dark Robo Knight called his stuff, but I guess it's just a recorded voice.


Also the use of the Mechazords... It is that they basically abandoned them. I thought it would've been better to  have had the Megaforce powers destroyed and not have the annoying Megaforce to Super Megaforce every ep but I guess they did it to excuse these two episodes. But basically this stalls the Super Megaforce storyline. I think they did this to tie in Vrak with Vekar but they could've just had this at the end of the first season.
