My sister found and sent this to me this morning... I want it.

It's a shameless knock-off that's a chimera...

But screw all that, it looks awesome!

I'm not sure what that is. The writing is in Korean.

Got this guy in a few days ago. The interchange robot is actually a very cool idea, what I imagine zordbuilder should have been like. Smaller and more affordable, but with more/better compatibility. Something like a $20-$25 price point at a more intermediate megazord size where they can easily produce more and make more versions. Looked like what they were going for here, with WF and JF. This is the size of a Build-a-figure megazord.

All pics here https://ibb.co/album/gd6vYv




Overall, actually neat and pretty detailed figure and zords. Of course, it is very cheap plastic, but they did surprisingly well with the accuracy, aside from deer zord. I find the cyberkey ankylozord tail sword very amusing, considering the megazord can't hold it. I wanted to get the other one just for the dino zords, but this thing is too cheaply made to warrant another $30 for that. The giraffe helmet pegs on, but of course it broke right away. Bison doesn't transform at all, solid plastic aside from moving head and horns, and condor's megazord head doen't turn around. The pegs where you attach the lion to the bison are surprisingly good, but condor locks too tightly into the lion, so it feels like it's going to break when you pull it out, but so far it hasn't. But the lion does retain the automatic pop up piece on the head (spring-loaded) where the condor attaches.

Didn't mean to do a review here, but this was just too interesting a knock-off for me to pass up on, especially considering all the other versions they have out. Also, got this on Wish, if anyone wants to know.
Oh yeah, and the website showed a yellow-bluish lion, the box shows black lion, but it came with red. Another neat, but cheap thing about these is the legs are made to detach and reattach. I was just able to put the giraffe's back legs on the lion. Condor and Bison are the only ones that can't do that here.

Correction: The bison's legs from the megazord's knees to the bison's front knees are each one solid part that can detach completely and can be posed to make the bison stand, but it looks horribull. Hehe, sorry.

I, too, find the Cyber Key weapon amusing. At least they picked an appropriate key for the job!

My Ape, Bear, and Wolf Ninjazords are bootlegs I found at a yard sale, and my Falconzord is a mishmash of parts from a one-winged tailless legit one my dad picked up at a thrift store ages ago and a more intact bootleg from the same yardsale lot. I used the chest and backplate of the bootleg because it's based on the BoJ version and thus has a dummy switch and functioning battery cover. Why yes, I am enough of a nutbar that I plan on rigging it up with DIY electronics, why do you ask?

Wow, and the irony of this is I just saw a video of another of these knockoff megazord, only the one in the video I saw was a mix up of Wildforce zords and Dino Thunder zords.

here's the video in question.
