“Form feet and legs! Form arms and torso! And I’ll form the head!”
If you’re already a kid by 1984, then most likely you’ll know how shouting these very words will result in 5 Lion robots combining to be an awesome Defender of the Universe. Now for those who were born 9 years after this series was aired, another mecha was introduced. Familiar with this one?
“We need Megazord power NOW! Mastodon! Pterodactyl! Triceratops! Sabertooth Tiger! Tyrannosaurus!”
So with these two mechas ruling over their respective domains (Voltron on animation, Megazord on live action), what do you think will happen if these 2 ever faced off for supremacy? Rather, what would happen if the Voltron team gets in a ruckus with the Power Rangers? Will it be the 5 Lions or will it be the 5 Dinos? That 3-decade question is about to be answered right now!
Youtube channel Ismahawk has put the exclamation point on this intriguing cocktail of his own concoction, Minute Match-Ups: Power Rangers VS Voltron!
This fan video features none other than bonafide Power-Ranger-fan-turned-Power-Ranger, the Blue Dino Charge Ranger himself, Yoshi Sudarso, only this time he will be in a different position as he honors the role of Keith Kogane, the leader of the Voltron Force and pilot of the Black Lion. On the other hand, the Ranger team has been filled in with another HUGE Power Ranger fan, the only sports entertainment athlete to ever shout the time-tested “IT’S MORPHIN’ TIME!” catchphrase during a match, Austin Creed/Xavier Woods, as he joins the team as the Black Ranger, Zack.
Here’s a short synopsis on how things got messy with those 2 teams:
The Voltron Force is searching for clues on Prince Lotor’s whereabouts when they stumbled upon a black hole, sucking them in. This sent them crashing into midtown Angel Grove, a very familiar place. Meanwhile, a certain group of “teenagers with attitude” were hanging out at their usual spot in the Youth Center when they felt a strong rumble. A voice alerted them via their communicators telling them, “Rangers! There has been a great disturbance downtown. I’d like you to investigate on what is happening there.” and without a second thought, these teenagers looked for an empty spot, and transformed to beams of light heading downtown.
Pretty exciting eh? Now, all you have to do is tune in to this fan video and soon you’ll know who has the baddest mecha fist, MEGAZORD or VOLTRON?
