|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 non-canon toy-exclusive vehicles. 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. They also made the stickers accurate to the show. Unfortunately, the 2010 Megazord lacks too much detail from the original 1992/1993 Megazord. Examples include: The tip of the tail on the Tyrannosaurus does not collapse, The tusks on the Mastodon can not go up and down, the wheels on the Triceratops and Saber-Toothed Tiger are hollow and can not move, the tail guns on the Triceratops can not move, and the back of the Megazord's arms are hollow and need to be swapped when combing the zords into the Tank Mode. Also, all of the chrome is not present.
This version of the toy was rereleased again in 2013 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, accurately 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 was released, it is a reproduction of the Black and Gold Daizyujin from 1992 & the Special Edition release of the original Megazord from 1994. It has the same updates that the 2015 re-release of the normal Legacy Megazord has.
Soul of Chogokin
- by Bandai Japan (2017)
At Power Morphicon a Soul of Chogokin version of Daizyujin/Megazord was announced with the individual zords shown while at NYCC 2016 the full combined form was shown. It was released in April 2017. Just like the original DX & the 2010/Legacy releases it's able to combine to form the tank mode and Megazord. Unlike the previous releases the Tyrannosaurus, Mastodon, Triceratops, & Sabertooth Tiger have a ton of articulation like fully articulated legs, the Triceratops has detachable horns with chains just like in both shows, the Mastodon has a fully articulated trunk and shoulder panels covering the legs, the Tyrannosaurus has 3d mouth blasters, fully articulated arms & tail, & the Triceratops and Sabertooth Tiger have opening mouths which all previous releases lacked. It's not compatible with the Legacy Dragonzord or Titanus. The individual zords resemble the scale models used in footage in both Zyuranger & MMPR Season 1 and the Tyrannosaurus also resembles the suit used during stand-alone fights with monsters while the like 2010 Dino Megazord/all releases of the Legacy Megazord when in Megazord mode resembles the suit used in both shows. The Pterodactyl also like the previous releases can also use the cannons as feet. This release is also not zord builder compatible nor is compatible with the original releases either. The Big wheels on the Sabertooth Tiger's front legs don't move.
- by Hasbro (2020)
Hasbro released their own version of the Megazord by selling each zords seperately similar to how the components of Daizyujin were also sold in Japan along side the set. The Tyrannosaurus Dinozord comes with the Power Sword, while the Triceratops & Sabertooth Tiger are sold together, & the Mastodon & Pterodactyl are sold together & come with the canons that like with prievous releases can be used as feet for the Pterodactyl. The paint job is basic, the Tyrannosaurus has pegs on the knees similar to the 2010 & Legacy releases & the tip of the tail doesn't fold up as its one solid piece, while the Triceratops & Sabertooth Tiger also has non moveable wheels similar to the 2010 & legacy releases along with the Triceratop's tail being one piece with non moveable guns. When combined in the tank mode it differs from previous releases, & when in Megazord mode it's taller than the 2010 & Legacy releases. However similar to the 2010, Legacy, & Soul of Chogokin releases it resembles the sleek suit design, and like the Soul of Chogokin release it also has articulated elbows. The components do also come with show accurate markings like some previous releases too.
