Starting off a new decade, here is the Chrono Changer from Timeranger!
This toy serves as the weld between two pieces of metal. It is the last toy of the old styling, yet the first toy of the 2000s.
For starters, despite it's sleek and futuristically simple design it is on par with the 90s Sentai Changers. It's silver, it's wrist mounted, it comes in a red box, it has a game, and it has that awful plastic wristband that we've all grown to tolerate since the early 90s [though the last official toy to have it was Gaosilver's G Brace Phone from 2001].
On the other hand, this toy features quite the lightshow. Red and green lights everywhere. Enough to keep my zoom out of whack on my camera while filming.
The game is a nice feature, though it is a bit simple and not as fun as the Megaranger game or the Gogo V games. I give them absolute props though since I can't imagine what else they could come up with here.
Speaking of the game, for the Power Rangers Time Force Chrono Morpher...well it's more a lack thereof. Instead of using the arrow to move to the different sounds as on the Chrono Changer, each button activates one of three sounds on the Chrono Morpher. Not exactly sure why the game wasn't included as the toys are identical.
Overall, the Chrono Changer is a very common toy that is well worth the buy. You can easily find a brand new one for dirt cheap on Yahoo Japan and they randomly pop up on places like ebay as well.
