Unless I'm really mistaken, that's a part to a part of the Lion Mechazord from Power Rangers Megaforce. It's a fold-out panel to the back piece, which folds around the hips of the combined Gosei Great Grand Megazord.




Got given a lot of stuff from the charity shop to sort out and sell for them this week... and it includes more parts of that Mechazord and others in that line. Still not complete but getting there. :P

Also found the crossbow in there of the Beast Hunters Bumblebee I bought from there last week. So that's mine. :P

I had one of those as a kid but in different colors. Couldn't name it for you on my best day, but I can tell you it was from a discount chain and connected with a few similarly sized modules to make a, idk, crappy moon train or something. It's only worth is in whatever fun you might eke from it.

Well, the artwork is from Armada, but the logo is from G1, and the use of "The Original Series" would suggest that they're G1 DVDs, but no official G1 DVD releases used Armada artwork on their covers. They might be bootlegs.

Those are DVDs of transformers Armada from around 2002 (though not a set of DVDs I recognise), a somewhat notorious series in terms of production quality but with some reasonable plots. Not exactly pushing the boundaries of entertainment but pretty fun- though seemingly being earlier episodes, they'll probably be quite human-centric and the humans are... an acquired taste.

I'd recommend it (though not if you're paying top dollar), but as the name suggests I'm a little biased ;)

EDIT: As Sabr rightly points out, there are actually quite a few red flags that they're probably bootlegs. I'd be half tempted to get them and see what episodes they are out of curiosity if they're on the cheap, but that's just me being nosy having a healthy curiosity for life :lol:

Sorry, that was too easy. :lol: They're bootlegs for sure, they aren't worth anything.

This is the only kind of "bootlegs" that matter and are actually worth it:

I'd hold off on the "bootleg" claim guys, until we see the back of the cases. If anything, it's just a re-release done via a cheap distributor.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD 2001 Dreadwind & Smokejumper
3) RiD 2001 Destructicons Bludgeon & Scourge
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Doesnt change the fact that these arent worth much regardless.

Nah, there's no reason even a cheap distributor would not have access to the appropriate Armada logo if they have access to correct character art. Or be using Armada character Art for G1. There's tons of G1 character art to choose from more so if its a licensed release.

10 to 1 these are bootlegs of G1 with Armada Character art for some reason.

A re-release wouldn't be done by a cheap distributer unless it's a bootleg. All of the major markets have a company with the license to produce these that know what they're doing. Even those crappy collected DVDs for G1 and the Unicron Trilogy back in the late '90s and mid '00s were done by Rhino and Paramount. Any market that would produce something this poor isn't too likely to be doing it legally.
