Bandai and the Power Rangers Are Looking for a Hero Building Champion

Are You the Ultimate ZordBuilder?

CYPRESS, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 14, 2012) -   Bandai America Incorporated and Saban's Power Rangers are challenging kids across the U.S. to put their Zord building skills to the test. Fans can create and submit their unique Zord combinations for a chance to win weekly prizes as well as the grand prize -- a visit from the Power Rangers themselves! Power Rangers is the iconic action toy line from Bandai America that is universally recognized throughout the world for its innovation and creativity; and Zord building epitomizes those attributes. Unique to the brand, Zords and Megazords are the larger than life animal inspired mechanical robots that the Power Rangers use to defeat evil. This new ZordBuilder line of Power Rangers toys from Bandai has fused action with construction to deliver a creative toy line that allows kids to mix and match parts to build show accurate Zords and Megazords or hundreds of their own unique creations. Now, kids can win great prizes just for building their own Zord in the "Are You the Ultimate ZordBuilder?" contest.

Entering the contest is easy and can be done in a few different ways. Kids can get their hands on the product and enter in person at malls across the country from August through November. At these 27 mall events Zord experts will teach kids how to play with the ZordBuilder collect & combine system. Kids will be able to build their Zords on-site and submit a photo of their creation for entry into the contest. For those that are not able to attend one of these awesome mall events, they can enter online at Kids can build their Zord at home using their own Power Ranger toys, take a photo and submit online or they can experience the Virtual ZordBuilder. This virtual online tool allows kids to simply drag and drop their favorite Zords into the system and it will process and reveal their unique and creative Zord or Megazord combination. Kids are only limited by their imagination.

Each week one winner will be chosen to receive a Power Rangers Toy Prize Pack and, in December, a grand prize winner will be chosen for a Power Ranger Ultimate ZordBuilder party in their hometown including a visit from the Power Rangers themselves!
