I don't know why, but I felt the classic vintage Megazord to be more show-accurate with its boxy chunky proportions. Legacy Megazord looks more "what if the Megazord were instead of a guy in a suit."
Dragonzord, on the other hand... his vintage figure was just... fat. I can't wait to get the Legacy one because he does look more show-accurate, especially the hands! (Vintage Dragonzord had hands, but they were not sculpted, just 2 flat things with stickers to represent the barrels in the fingers).
Titanus was already release a long time ago, it was called the MMPR 2010 Titanus. You could still combine it with the Megazord, but they added this gimmick into it that you could take some PR figures and mix and match it around, quite a lame figure if you ask me. Because of the gimmick some aesthetic looks where sacrifice. However, i commend them on actually making the actual stickers base on the show.
Gonna need to pick up this legacy Dragonzord to combine with my legacy Megazord. Thinking of going with Amazon for $79.

Did anyone received the cancellation from Toys R US on the Pre-order? I must of pre-ordered this like 2 months ago at least and now they said they are unable to fill and cancelled mine. It was listed at the time for 59.99, I checked Amazon and their pre-order is 79.99 with same release date of 6-30-14.
I am starting to boycott ever buying anything from TRU as this is the second time they did this sh*t.
Well, the diecast parts reported in that video is great news...but, ack...$199 price-tag...
I pre-ordered it! I hate the price too. I am also curious if Bandai will release a more developed Legacy Dino Megazrod or not! The Legacy Dino Megazord we have is nice but we surly know we dislike the stickers and we surly know Bandai can do better than this in terms of sculpt and the mechanism of movements.
There is a rumor that they will be doing another production run of the Legacy Dino Megazord, but it is unknown if they will be making any modifications to it. One of the issues is that the weight of the diecast causes issues, especially when combined with the Dragonzord. The new Titanus includes little plastic knee stabilizers that help a little bit, but ultimately they need to redesign it or make an all-plastic version of all of them (I know that the Legacy Dino Megazord was just the same as the 2010 Megazord with the added diecast and better paint apps - it's the weight of the Dragonzord especially that causes the problems).
