MMPR White Tiger Megazord by puzzledperplexity MMPR White Tiger Megazord by puzzledperplexity
This is a custom, one of a kind White Tiger Megazord from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.

This figure was made using the original White Tigerzord toy, a 10 inch Gundam, and hands from a Transformers Optimus Prime.

In warrior mode, the Megazord stands at 10 inches tall and has 22 points of articulation (in comparison to the original's 2).

*Warrior head is on a ball joint
*2 points in shoulder, 1 swivel in bicep, 1 at the elbow, and 1 swivel in the forearm.
*Hands are on a ball joint and have individually moving digits
*Waist
*4 points in each leg

The figure was given a new paint-job with both spray and acrylic paints.

Yes, it can transform into Tiger mode. I chose to remove it's ability to combine with the Thunderzord Assault team because I would never display as such, it would remove all articulation I put into it, and avoiding paint rub would be near impossible.

Reproduction stickers were purchased from Reprolabels.com

Seeing an old Power Rangers toy used in such a creative manner that actually helps pay tribute to the show is so touching. The fact that you were able to do this proves that not only are you honoring the show but you are also honoring yourself with such ingenuity. The care that you took in making sure that each piece fit perfectly together and each piece doesn't show any signs of scuffing, damage or wear and tear from the years you owned the toy help convince me that you truly loved your toys and that is always a pleasure to hear. All around well done on this and thank you for your tribute to a classic TV series. I hope to see more of your work in the future.

Don't cry. As mentioned before, the Tigerzord I used came from a flea market. It was used, abused, and yellowed horribly. It would never held a place in someone's collection like that.

Thanks for the compliment!

I really wish that Bandai actually put out toys like this. Transformers has this down pat, why can't Bandai?

Why is removing the brick hands a problem when I gave it ones that can turn at the wrist and each finger can move?

Most people would say that that's better...
