    This is a custom, masterpiece-esque, 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 Movie 1 leader class 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. The total time this build required from start to finish is roughly 30+ hours.

    Yes, it can transform into Tiger mode. No, it cannot combine with the Thunderzord assault team.

    Reproduction stickers were purchased from Reprolabels.com

    Any comments and criticisms are welcome.

    Nononononono...

    Oh thank god. This looks really good but I have one of these toys probably about 6 feet away from me (through a wall). I was super concerned that this would tempt me to do something to mine.

    While yours looks fantastic and is an incredible display piece I am extremely relieved that I feel no desire what so ever to emulate it. :p

    Cool. I'll be interested to see what you do with this.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I plan on selling this one, but am very tempted to perform this procedure on the kinda beat up Tigerzord in my own collection.

    Thank you! However, I am nowhere near the level of a pro customizer. This is just something I do for fun. This is only my 10th custom or so. Easily the one I'm most proud of though.

    Yeah, I didn't plan to start with the tigerzord but I found all the parts so went for it. This guy is going to be up on ebay soon and I do have all the parts and plans to recreate the season 1 and season 2 Megazords. I hope to start on the original megazord here early next week. It's going to be about a foot tall and pure awesome.

    This is amazing, it just reminds me how badly I want to see a Soul of Chogokin version of this.

    I couldn't disagree more. This is excellent. Also, all of my favorite artists "do this for fun" as well :wink:
