To some, it was their first ever Megazord. To others, it was the first ever Super Sentai Robo to be completely made up of mechanized creatures. Whichever they were, this combining super robot has carved a special place in the hearts of many fans of both Power Rangers and the Super Sentai Series. From the makers of the adult collectors' toy line Soul of Chogokin comes the Dinosaur themed Super Sentai Robo, DaiZyuJin!

From the sixteen Super Sentai Series, Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger, Shinka Gattai DaiZyuJin (known as THE Megazord to Power Rangers fans) was the first ever Super Sentai combining Robo to be made up of mechanized creatures rather than vehicles with animal themes. It is made up of the five Guardian Beast which are Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus, Guardian Beast ZyuMammoth, Guardian Beast TriceratopsGuardian Beast SaberTiger, and Guardian Beast Pteranodon. These would firstly combine into what was called Dino Tanker before fully transforming into DaiZyuJin.

As we've come to expect from Soul of Chogokin toys, each of the Guardian Beast is highly detailed, articulated and made with die-cast parts! We can clearly see the Sonic Energy blasters housed inside Tyrannosaurus' mouth and is designed in such a way that the connecting joints and tabs are hidden from sight. ZyuMammoth's slightly more complex design allows it to neatly fold away the back flaps that normally cover DaiZyuJin's arms.

Triceratops may be a simpler design compare to the others but that doesn't make it any less playable as it's horns can be removed and linked with a chain. SaberTiger has a bit of gimmick with its tail that allows it to extend, giving it a more screen accurate appearance. Lastly, Pteranodon makes use of the included blasters to stand up-right. Do be sure to fold its wings in the proper order when transforming.

When combined together they first form the Dino Tanker with Triceratops and SaberTiger attaching to  Tyrannosaurus' knees, ZyuMammoth attaching to Tyrannosaurus chest and back, and Pteranodon riding on his back. Transforming into DaiZyuJin, the Dino Tanker stands upright and tucks the Tyrannosaurus head into its chest before Pteranodon attaching itself.

Once the horns flip out into place the Five Guardian Beasts have transformed into the physical incarnation of the Ruling God of the five tribes, DaiZyuJin! The end result is a sight to behold, even with some of the liberties taking with the design, Tamashii has created an amazingly screen-accurate recreation of Super Sentai Robo. Of course, he wouldn't be complete without his weapon, the God Horn!

Soul of Chogokin has once again outdone themselves with this one. So whether you're a Super Sentai Purist or a Nostalgic Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger fan, this is a must have collector's piece! Who knows what might be next in line from Tamashii, Soul of Chogokin Dragon Caesar? Or maybe King Brachion?
