This week I finally got to play with the toys and now I get to share with you this first look at our version of Twinduction™!

Hey Power Rangers fans! Our new collection Mega Bloks Power Rangers Megaforce will be hitting stores this Spring. One of the new things we’ve done this year is completely re-imagined our figures from the ground-up with a focus on action and battle poses.
In addition to both the arms and legs using ball joints, we’ve added articulation to the ankles! This makes the figure easy to manipulate even while it’s attached to block pegs, and adds a surprising amount of posing diversity. Check out some more poses we did:
Our Megaforce collection has a lot of cool new weapons, vehicles, and Mechazords and Megazords! Stay tuned to the blog for more Mega Bloks Megaforce news.
Now you can watch the first four episodes of our hit Halo toymation series – Assault on Squad 45 – in a single video! Stay tuned for more cool Halo videos in 2013.
