Imaginext Power Rangers Green Ranger & Dragonzord RC

2 from 1 review(s)

The Power Rangers were widely popular when I was a kid. I remember playing Power Rangers on the playground at recess all the time. Parts of the iconic Power Rangers were the Dragonzord. Fisher-Price Imaginext brings a blast from the past with the Power Rangers Green Ranger & Dragonzord RC.

Unboxing

Unboxing the Fisher-Price Imaginext Power Rangers Green Ranger & Dragonzord RC was actually very time consuming and relatively frustrating. Unfortunately, there is no frustration free option available at this time via Amazon.com but I am hopeful there will be in the future. In the meantime, make sure you prepare to unbox this toy with a good pair of scissors and ample patience.

There are several plastic zip ties holding the Dragonzord and his accessories in place. Additionally, at the bottom of the toy there are several twist and remove plastic clips. However, these plastic clips don’t work very well and I ended up wrestling them out of the package by force.

The Playtime Experience

Playing with the Fisher-Price Imaginext Power Rangers Green Ranger & Dragonzord RC left me somewhat unimpressed although he did have some cool features. I had to install 2 AAA batteries in the remote Dragonzord sword. This toy came with 6 AA batteries but he doesn’t move unless the remote is operational.

Dragonzord has an on and off switch but no volume control. He is very loud and makes a lot of noise. The Dragonzord has many mechanical sound effects and plays music very loudly. This toy is very responsive to his remote control and responds quickly when buttons are pressed. When you wave the Fisher-Price Imaginext Power Rangers Green Ranger & Dragonzord RC sword accessory, he plays music and spins while shaking his tail. The power pad on his head also makes his chest open and activates more mechanical sounds when twisted to the left or right.

Things I Liked

I liked that the Fisher-Price made this toy so responsive to his remote and that you can fire his missiles from across the room. The Power Rangers Green Ranger & Dragonzord RC advertises an impressive 12-foot radius where it is still able to receive signal and respond from the Dragonzord sword remote.

Things I Didn’t Like

I really don’t like how loud the Power Rangers Green Ranger & Dragonzord is and how many batteries it takes to operate. Although there is an on/off switch on the back, this toy, doesn’t have any volume control and I found him startlingly loud. Additionally, I have said before that my son’s toys eat me “out of house and home” in the batteries department. So getting behind a toy that takes 8 batteries just to perform basic operations is rather difficult from where I sit as a mom.

I also feel that the as an RC toy it could use more directional abilities via the remote control. The fun of RC toys is being able to drive them around and the Fisher-Price Dragonzord is not generally very maneuverable in my opinion.

Appropriate Ages

Ages 3-8 tends to be the standard age range on many of the Fisher-Price Imaginext sets. The Fisher-Price Imaginext Power Rangers Green Ranger & Dragonzord RC is marketed for that same 3-8 age range. I can’t argue with this age recommendation because I feel they hit the nail on the head with it. Younger than 3 I would worry about choking on the missiles and over 8 I am just not sure the entertainment value is the same. There are so many RC types’ toys I think that this toy will lose his entertainment fairly quickly with older children.

Green Ranger & Dragonzord RC: Worth it?

I just don’t get a lot very well with this toy. I really do not feel I can get behind it to recommend to you and your family knowing how loud he is. As a mom, I get tired of hearing toys over and over again, and loud toys definitely don’t win any favorites from me when I can’t adjust the volume. The Fisher-Price Imaginext Power Rangers Green Ranger & Dragonzord RC isn’t a bad toy but it doesn’t have enough for me to justify choosing it over a differently and more economically priced RC option.

    Too loud to enjoy

    I remember playing Power Rangers on the play ground at school and the Fisher-Price Imaginext Dragonzord really brought back a lot of memories for me! I just wish I could like this toy. He is really responsive to the remote but he is so loud I am unable to really enjoy the experience of playing with him.
