Where did life go so wrong?
And now some Bulk & Skull.
Hope you enjoyed.
Do the zords apply mass displacement when combining? The sabertooth tiger is barely bigger than the feet of Golder, and yet it then turns into an entire leg from knee down on the Megazord. Either it gets much bigger while transforming, or the T-Rex-zord is three times the size of all the other ones.
Yeah, it was never directly stated, but it is the case.
The Tyrannosaurus Zord was always the size of the monster it was fighting, if it didn't change size the Megazord would be twice the size of the monster
I'm about to sound like a tremendous faggot, but I hate when comic artists/writers are so out of touch from Toku monsters like this. It looks like some random Hollywood monster, not like something Rita/Bandora would make.
They aren't adapting it, they're doing something different with the same idea. Which in this case is Power Rangers, but trying to be more "serious" by not having the monsters be stuff like giant pig faces that hate spicy foods.
Personally I think you can have wacky toku monsters in a comic and make them threatening. Just write them as actually threatening villains instead of jokey pun throwing monsters they are usually portrayed as in show. Sure some people might think its wierd seeing the rangers fight giant pigs, chickens and toads. But the monsters are one of my favourite things about power rangers. Along with the multi colored suits and combining robots.
They might focus on a another ranger next issue, I'm pretty hopeful for this comic book series. I've already asked my comic book store to order the boom comic for me. Can't wait to see what comes next.
That's what I've been saying.
She needs to have that toned down before she starts knocking things off of tables so she can cozy up next to Zedd when he shows up without stabbing him.
You're not, though until MMPR season 2 it was something of a given. Geki and Burai basically WERE the plot of Zyuranger.
Then after they started using Dairanger footage, they realized how much kids loved Tommy (Hint: it's for the same reason kids loved Vegeta) that they decided to use him more. Kids continued to love him, he continued to stay on. He decided to leave, so he left. Can't force an actor to stay on.
Then Dino Thunder was the first dino-themed season since MMPR 1, so they figured they'd bring someone back as a veteran character. Austin St John was off in Afghanistan doing relief work, most of the rest had severely distanced themselves from the franchise, but Jason David Frank didn't have a problem with it AND he'd been there for the Forever Red reunion episode.
Tommy is a perfectly alright character - a villain who becomes not only a hero but the hero with the single longest tenure of any of them, with enough powersets from his various teams to have a full team of 5 on his own - but JDF himself is arrogant and unlikeable in his public dealings.
Honestly, I don't think Frank is like that on his own. I remember up until a few years ago his con appearances were pretty casual and he said that he isn't tommy. Then he reinvented himself as an MMA fighter JESUS DIDN'T TAP GO GREEN GREEEEN guy. I think his agent or his wife is to blame.
Close second is Lost Galaxy for me. Love the lighting.
>Austin St John was off in Afghanistan doing relief work
What the fuck? I knew about him being an EMT or whatever but he did that too? What'll be revealed next? Did he help in the Indian Ocean tsunami aftermath? Was he a 9/11 first responder?
If anyone from MMPR would've become a professor mentor, it would have been Billy. But, you know, Yost cut his ties after the gay bashing. And Billy's out there in space getting alien booty.
Damn nigga, that's a good joke.
Jason Geiger, to be exact
>"Austin" came from STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN
Can this man be any more based
Dino Thunder was the last one I watched regularly, came back when everything got on Netflix. Jungle Fury and RPM did not disappoint.
I think Goldar blocked it early and used the surprise to push him back. That hand has to hurt.
>Watching Power Rangers
>Not just watching the original Super Sentai
As a Sentai fan with only a faint recollection/nostalgia for PR, I still dug this issue. It isn't amazing, but it was fun and they hired great artists for it. I almost want to financially support it just because it isn't Big 2.
I won't expect the book to handle anything deeper than the plot itself, but that's probably the way it should be - toku isn't known for that and I'd be silly to expect otherwise.
In Space was probably the best time to quit, but I stayed on through Wild Force; I should have just left at Time Force.
>dat feel when the simple glance at the cover makes you hear the guitar riff in your mind
Well, her Zyuranger character was pregnant with Goldar's kid
I skipped OO, but Jungle Fury and RPM brought me back in.
I feel like SPD doesn't get enough credit. RPM, Time Force, and In Space always get love, and I've even heard more from Dino Thunder fans than SPD.
That's more the Vegeta effect, since Wolverine didn't start out a villain for most people. Sure, he was tasked with taking Hulk down, but everyone does that.
But then you miss out on Jen in Time Force
JF has the best fights, morphed and unmorphed, of the entire series. The Spirit Ranger fights, which were entirely original since the Spirit Rangers didn't exist in Gekiranger, were top-tier
Lightspeed didn't do it for me. I get the notion of fighting ancient evil magic with science, but I didn't like the execution.
Dat Yellow, tho.
>They took Carranger, one of the funniest Sentai seasons ever, and turned it into the dreck that was PR Turbo
Zeo wasn't great, and Lightspeed Rescue was average. Saban had In Space, Lost Galaxy and Time Force, whereas Disney had Dino Thunder, SPD, Jungle Fury, and RPM. Hell, you can even make a case for Mystic Force and especially Ninja Storm. Basically the only actual blemish on the Disney era is Operation Overdrive, whereas the early Saban era was the drizzling shits held up only by nostalgia.
Enter and Escape make it impossible.
Think of the trains, Lenny. Just think of the trains.
There's no way Saban or Disney would do ToQger.
Kids old enough to watch Power Rangers in America just don't like trains. The only kids media in America involving trains is Thomas the Tank Engine.
Also, it's a very kiddy series. If Sentai is light shonen, Kamen Rider is dark shonen, and Garo is seinen, then ToQger is kodomo.
Broken clocks, anon
Power Up! accuses them of stealing their gimmick.
Only Nickelodeon knows, and they stopped knowing what they were doing about a decade ago.
There was some wooden acting, resulting from them bringing in Japanese directors like Sakamoto to direct episodes. Which ties in to the other big gripe: it's basically just a 1:1 translation of Gaoranger, when the big draw of Power Rangers now is that it takes the Sentai footage and does something new with it (though it's not as bad is this respect as Samurai).
>See this thread
>Remember Power Rangers
>Immediately hear "GO GO POWER RANGERS" from out of nowhere
Jesus brain, I know you like it, but stop lying to my ears. You'll get me all excited then let down.
in comparison to other kids shows, how do you feel that Power Rangers stands
In the early 2000's - 2008, despite what some people say about that era, I feel that Power Rangers stood up high with some of the big name kid's shows, only really ever beaten out by the likes of Justice League and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
But Power Rangers now? Even with Dino Charge being "decent" it still just feels like it's just "there," not really much of a reason but to take up space. it honestly it feels like one of those moments one might say "Why watch this, when there are better kid's shows out there." Power Rangers now just feels like it is only just hitting the "check-box." [SPOILER]I mean, when a little girl's show has the main character a prison baby, you know you need to step your game up.[/SPOILER]
But enough about my thoughts, where do you think Power Rangers stands in the kid show hierachy
How would history have changed had Stan succeeded in bringing over Sun Vulcan way before Saban did MMPR?
There was, is and always will be a place in kids' media for martial arts action shows. I mean, TMNT's still going strong.
But I'd have to look at ratings and toy sales and all that to get a real grasp on it. Or I'll ask my friends who are in elementary ed if kids still like Power Rangers.
Wasn't Sun Vulcan a satire season?
How big was PR in Japan? Some people say it was pretty big, others (mostly sentai purists who cannot post without calling the show shit, compulsively) say it didn't register at all.
Does anyone know for sure?
I mean, I don't think it'd be that great, but at the same time there's a Maasaki Endoh cover for its title song...
you would be surprised.
you can tell alot by the products they put out.
Unless people can bring up specific numbers, at best it's a niche product for Westaboos (unless they need to make fun of it like in Akibaranger). Nowhere close to the popularity of Sentai, even now that it's taken a dip.
only like a few seasons aired. the first movie and I think like space - light speed. Samurai, SPD, and Mystic Force were dubbed on Toei's on demand...
so it is just...kind of there.
>>Drawing based on a bad screenshot from the show and not concept art
That's a shame.
>Jason and Tommy are at each other's throats in the comic
>Jason and Tommy were true bros in MMPR and Zeo
>Find out that the actual actors absolutely hate each other IRL today
I guess it's just a lazy artist in general
How true is that? The actors hating each other, I mean. I don't really follow actors' lives outside f their parts, but it seems more like an act to generate buzz than anything else.
Power Ranger's problem is that it's to tame and generic to be entertaining right now. They didn't even want the Rangers to have personalities in Samurai and Megaforce.
They had all this hype about owning the franchise again and they botched it because they put as little money and care into Samurai as humanly possible. It was just stilted translated watered down scripts attached to wooden acting.
And Nick didn't start with the first episode for whatever terrible reason... It was going to blow up in their face and it really did.
damn, that's some great quality of shit turtles.
Literally the best Power Rangers has is
>legacy set: which is just slightly better old toys
>"Nippon edition" of Samurai and Megaforce zords, which is just japanese imports.
Power Rangers blown the fuck out.
Apparently they did not get along.
Still don't, if what I've heard was true. Jason David Frank apparently never let what Austin claimed was childish bragging go.
But then, Tommy was always cooler.
Supposedly Austin St John was at a con talking to someone there who asked a question about fighting someone with long hair, to which Austin referred to as a "bitch grip", and Jason David Frank saw the clip of this on Youtube and took offense to it due to his time having long hair while filming MMPR and Zeo. As far as I know the two of them haven't patched things up yet.
If you read the interview with the one kid from Dino Thunder the man was fucking unhinged. He would constantly try to start fights with the kid that played Conner and was a general ass on set.
I still don't get how In Space can be god tier.
The writing and the story was fantastic but oh god the acting was the drizzling shits.
I'd imagine a god tier series would have both good acting and good writing/story which both RPM and Time Force has.
But then, I'm in no place to really judge having not watched every season
I watched up to In Space then stopped, then picked up again during Time Force when it became a guilty pleasure while I was baby sitting then stopped again.
Then I would watch years later when I heard RPM was supposed to be the final season.
Good to know the 2 seasons I stumbled upon are both seen as the best of the franchise.
That's from a movie that just came out and the show that's airing is producing a new mold for nearly every figure and in most stores it takes up about half an aisle compared to most lines having two or three peg rows.
all of the original cast pretty much patched everything out. JDF is still a massive faggot though.
That said, Walter Jones (Zack) and Austin st John (Jason) are still best bros to this day if interviews from a couple of years ago are anything to go by.
I really hope there are some nice character focus issues. Things are a bit vague at the moment of Tommy is hearing the actual Rita or if its some kind of PTSD but I think either way it's a really fun hook and if it is PTSD it does a lot to flesh his character out right off the bat.
Higgins is a pretty good idea guy and I think he'll do well in a book with no editorial bullshit mucking things up.
You make this too easy man.
Just in general, Nick/Viacom is really going all out with all of these collectors stuff.
I mean, what else have they done on this quality? Lin from Karra got a figure...and that was it.
That's literally only because he realizes there is more money to be made in embracing that fact. It's really all he has left.
It wasn't long ago JDF avoided his PR history like the plague and would even go off on people who brought it up. Kinda like Amy Jo Johnson did minus the going off on people. like JDF however, AJJ seems to be receptive to her PR fame now as well
Pacific Rim 2 might never happen but at least Japan will keep giving us a yearly dose of giant robot action until it stops selling merchandise.
>That's literally only because he realizes there is more money to be made in embracing that fact. It's really all he has left.
Well, considering the guy is not an actor, getting some money on the side from his past fame doesn't seem too bad to me.
AJJ is a better (I didn't say good) actress and has worked on more shows. Dunno where she is now, last I knew she was playing a Swat team cop or something.
>hey guys let's make a power rangers movie
>sure, what studio do we give it to?
>How about Legendary, who basically just made a power rangers movie?
>Nah, let's give it to Lionsgate, the YA fiction studio
I don't know how that is cherry picking? I mean, the whole point of the original point was that TMNT has more variety.
What, Power Rangers panders to MMPR...that's about it.
TMNT has done high quality figures for: the platinum movie, Nick turtles, Mirage stuff, some things not based on an iteration (Good Smile statues, The "First Turtle" figure by Mondo, and Three Zero is teaming up wtih Kevin Eastman to provide some figures on some old concept art.
that's a bit more than what power rangers has done.
Jungle Fury was great. The original choreography was leaps and bounds ahead of the Sentai counterparts. I'd also move mega force up a tier because it had the two hottest ranger in the history of the series.
I think it was pretty good. Only thing I regret about it is that they did not have the balls to actually kill the future red, when in the first episode they had killed him on fucking screen. It was done! You had gotten away with it!
I mean, I don't really want PR to be edgy or anything like that, but it felt nice that it pushed the envelope a little. Kids have been able to handle death in their media since forever.
>Aside from Hannibal Lecter-esque villain who was set free when Blue cried, it was forgettable as fuck.
You might be confused by the fact that Wesley is actually Sky's father.
It had some of the best storytelling and acting in the entire franchise. The scene between Edward Albert and Jason Faunt when Wes's helmet is broken is one of the most memorable PR moments in terms of actual drama.
no idea how he lost it
whats with this boring as fuck generic kaiju? it is defiantly not a power ranger monster.
I am also a little sad it is a reboot and not just new stories set in the 90s, it was not the best time but it would be interesting to see a comic set in the 90s
It's not a matter of them backing off on "edgy" material, it's the same thing that happened in Timeranger (and Kobayashi doesn't shy away from that shit). Because it's a part of the overarching theme that history is not set in stone.
>Win Power Ball
>offer 100 mil Amy Jo Johnson to fuck her in the Pink PR suit.
>like fuck she's gonna say no
I'm gonna do it bros
Why stop at Amy?
I'd go for every pink, yellow and any other female ranger.
Make them form a female team with me as their Red. We'd shoot an actual three and half hour movie for this.
Then I'd make the porno sequel four hours long.
>They can just make new monsters, anon.
judging by the monster in this issue no they can't sure its a nice looking monster for godzilla but not power rangers.
I really dislike how they made it set in the 10s, I can forgive it though if the comic if they get better monsters
> PR2 is re-cancelled
Stacker Pentecost died for nothing. Thanks for reminding me, anon.
At least they didn't get the chance to fuck up the others as much.

Still fucking would
You obviously aren't aware exactly how autistic /co/, and the internet in general, can get when it comes to changing things. There's people in this thread complaining that the fucking triangles on the suits are drawn wrong.
Man, I would really dig a buddy-cop style version of Kamen Rider W.
It's a reality-tv contest theme
Nininger was all about flashy ninja
Time Force Yellow is still cute as fuck because that black don't crack, and while I hate tsundere, Wild Force Yellow's personality and her interaction with Eric in the crossover pushed my buttons
You were four years old and watching it on a shitty old TV with a small screen and rabbit ears.
>Go-Onger into a post-apocalyptic series inspired by Mad Max.
I thought it was inspired by Terminator. You know, evil AI kills all humans, human resistance, cyborg agents pretending to be human.
It's kind of fucking terrible, anon. You remember the good parts like that whole depowered Jason versus Goldar scene in the mists, and Tommy's betrayal/"death", but forget about things like the pineapple monster that turns people into cardboard cutouts, and Billy's flying car.
Yeah, but as anon said in >>78969994 at the beginning of RPM you have Dillon being a solitary badass in a leather jacket driving a beast of a car. The tone is much more Mad Max; the future is barely presented in the earlier Terminator movies.
They did show laser guns, though. And in Salvation there were no laser guns. What the actual fuck.
My little cousin is four and he fucking loves Power Rangers. That's all he wants to watch when he comes over.
Now I'm sure most of /co/ is not aware of what 4 year olds like, but I think as a kids show, it's still quite popular. /toy/ will probably tell you that stores still keep a good inventory of Power Rangers toys on hand because little kids will always eat that shit up.
Yeah, in spite of what people may think there are a lot of kids who got into Power Rangers with Samurai. To the point where Saban worried that kids might get confused when Mega Force came on and it wasn't the same characters.
I was watching the feed for last year's Power Morphicon (or the year before) and they had these little documentary-style things with interviews and shit, and one of them was all about the prop department.
That's when I learned probably my favorite thing about SS/PR as franchises: the morpher toys ARE the morpher props.
On the one hand, that means you can get a new prop if there's an accident by driving to the nearest Wal-mart.
On the other hand, that means your kid isn't getting a hilariously oversized version, or a hilariously undersized version. He's getting the real thing.
idk i feel like if the people who employed you bullied you it be worse than if the people who work with you did. bc if it were people you work with, you could talk to employer and they could resolve, but since its emplyer, no one can resolve.
>watching For Whom The Bell Tolls
>suddenly random giant asian kid behind Mega Zord
what the hell is this shit
Honestly, in the wake of the Neo-Saban era, it's hard to call In Space's acting bad.
The thing is that with most of those early seasons of Power Rangers, while many members of the cast weren't exactly great actors, they had some charisma that meant it wasn't painful to watch. I'd include In Space with that. Yeah, Andros, Ashley and Zhane weren't great, but they were still likable. And Astronema/Karone chewed the scenery, but she was such a qt3.14 that you didn't care (seriously, watch the bloopers at the end of each In Space episode, she's having a great time).
If you watch Samurai, you get the distinct impression that none of the actors want to be there, as they all vaguely stare into the middle distance.
Nah, the problem is that he's too fully embraced his role as the franchise ambassador to the world.
A few years ago when Rick Medina stabbed a crazy roommate to death with a sword (Australia = no guns), in what court agreed was a case of self defense, JDF was on Twitter the night the event happened talking about how much damage he was doing to the brand. No need to wait for a trial or anything.
I have to admit, this wasn't half bad.
Unofficial Sentai Akibaranger
>Time Force Yellow is still cute as fuck because that black don't crack
Well the acting is the same quality.
Surely Judd Lynn will get us Power Rangers Fetish Force. Who are the members?
Not the same actor, just similar voices.
You know who else has a similar voice?
The tune there appears to be
>G E F G A G
There are 2 main Dragon Dagger themes in the show, the most common one being
>A E G A B A
The other being
>A Bb A Bb Eb C
On top of that, the rhythm isn't all wrong, too.
It'd be nice for them to get this right, but it would essentially just be an easter egg music nerds, and if no-one on the creative team is actually a musician, I can't expect them to do it.
One of the all-time greats.

Why was Justin added anyway?
I continued up through Dino Thunder, dropped off during SPD
both are great, currently watching Zyuranger and it's pretty amazing, Witch Bandora is best villain
with Mighty Morphin you have to rate it by season, and Turbo is only terrible till Tommy and the other veterans leave, then it becomes ok

Hah! I love it.
I dont' recommend looking for current pictures
>"alright we have our sympathetic terrorist villain, this season is going to be great"

I had an idea for an Alternate History Timeline where Marvel and Saban collaborate to bring Maskman over as the first Power Rangers series in late 1988, leading to Toku getting a stronger presence in the US than in the real world
it's basically a semi well known oddity
I really should storytime those Monster Art books some day
the original episode of Zyuranger that one is based on is kinda weird
Unofficial Sentai Akibaranger, can't you read?
That's a justified complaint.
When the name of the monster was announced I thought it was gonna be bulldozer themed monster. Or a bull themed one at the very least. The one we got does not compliment the setting at all and looks totally out of place.
>Why was Justin added anyway?
Ok so Power rangers was a gigantically huge franchise around 93-95ish. During this time, Saban purchased rights to a SHITTON of Toku so no other company could really rival him, this gave us VR Troopers, Masked Rider, Super Human Samurai, etc etc...
PR's popularity gave birth to an era of henshin shows in America each trying to piggyback on PR's success (Vanpires/Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters From Beverly Hills) or capitalize on it (Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog)
For years nothing could usurp Power Rangers from it's throne as top dog...Until a show called Big Bad BeetleBorgs.
Power Rangers viewership began to plummet at around season 3 and by Zeo it was falling faster and faster. Meanwhile BeetleBorgs was beginning to overtake PR in ratings at this time. The thought here was that kids were flocking to Beetleborgs more because of who the MCs were, it was the first of all the "ride on PR coat-tales" shows where the heros were all KIDS and thus far more relatable to the target audience than a group of teens.
So "let's try a kid as a ranger out? what could go wrong?"
They had their "kid" but he was nothing like a kid. He was just another teen in a kids body, he was super smart and went to high school. Unlike the BeetleBorg cast, he wound up being a caricature of what a kid actually was and just came off as annoying.
Early Turbo, Saban had already purchased the rights to Denji Sentai Megaranger (In Space), the gamble was that if the Justin experiment worked, the next season would be a full child cast since Megaranger was pretty much a video game. Justin also would've likely been the new Red.
Then most of the main cast jumped the sinking ship because PR studios were pretty much broke after the Turbo movie and couldn't meet their financial demands. re-writes were done, new contracts for new rangers were signed and ratings weren't getting any better the Justin project failed and was dumped as soon as the next season hit.
strangely enough, I always found that justin actually wasn't that bad when he was part of the cast instead of the show focusing on him. even when he cameo'd in In Space, he really wasn't as bad as I remember...though I think turbo was the last season I watched as a child.
Nope. People claim that the 2-part finale to In Space was originally going to be 3 parts, and the Phantom Ranger's identity was going to be revealed in it.
Realistically though, "Countdown to Destruction, Part 3" has been the go-to reservoir for fans to claim their fanon for any unresolved plot for the entirety of the Zordon era. Including stupid shit like how "Silver Titanus", a shitty Titanus re-design made for the toyline, would make an appearance.
Didn't he only appear in one episode of Carranger? Saban wanted to cash in on that Sixth Ranger money, though, so made a bunch of original footage with him, to make him another "Mysterious" sixth ranger
Keep in mind that In Space is the result of massive re-writes and everyone going balls to the walls because they all thought it was going to be the last season
If the Justin experiment succeeded, there would be no In-Space, it would be Video Game based.
Probably would've been called "Virtual Force" or something.
Neat. Thanks for that bit of history. So why WAS Beetleborgs so popular? Was it really because of the kids? I don't really remember watching it, but I must have since I still remember the theme song.
I rewatched Ninja Storm recently and I noticed a few things that made me appreciate it more
The villain's antics on the ship were actually pretty amusing and it made all of the backstabbing at the end was pretty awesome.
The rangers didn't pose and say their names after they morphed, they just started fighting right away.
Even towards the end they actually had a couple of zord fights that at least started with them using their individual zords in combat. The episode before the finale even had the Dolphin zord kicking ass separated from the megazord.
Ah yes, three of my favorite dinosaurs. The Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Triceratops, and the
Weren't they supposed to start out with dinosaurs/prehistoric life?
because the writers can't tell the difference between a mammal and a reptile
This is how it was in the show, and the 'power rangers' were cobbled together from footage and props from several sentai shows.
In continuity terms, Rita made the green ranger. Naturally she's going to cheat for the sake of power.
It was a mix of that and timing, really. Some kids were just getting tired of the same old especially when at this time it was just the Tommy show featuring Kim/Kat, and the others. BB was a fresh shiny new show and maintained that by having actual arcs and an endgame for each season. Even more intriguing was the fact that at times, the kids in Beetleborgs are a bit hesitant to reach that end game as they'll lose their powers if they ever do beat the final boss.
Also making the PR Movie non canon probably pissed some kids off.
Either way season three of PR was a pretty big blow with kids.
PRS3 actually gave the full kid team first but they were completely useless and still unrelatable in comparison to BB. The Alien Rangers were a pretty damn big mistake and weren't received well.
MMPRS3 told kids that they are weak and can do nothing without an adult and pounded in that idea daily while BeetleBorgs told kids "you have power, you have strength". It's easy to see which message a kid would flock to even without they knowing it.
DINO THUNDER MASTER RACE REPORTING IN
It has been YEARS and I still have that based theme song stuck in my head. Plus the game for DT is the source of the vast majority of my boners in life
if you want to whine, the zords were all supposed to be based on dinosaurs, even zordon said this.
dinosaurs like the ....mastodon.
or...the sabre-toothed tiger.
>literally didn't even read my first post
Anyway, ignoring that, pterodactyl is a little more understandable than the other two because
A) it was a reptile
B) it lived at the same time as the dinosaurs
C) everyone back in that era thought everything living back then was a dinosaur
SPD's opening is still superior.
special mention: the unused RPM opening: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEKDAlYoYe4
special mention: wasserman's pitched opening for mystic force: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VclgxwWO474
Again, the kids is Season 3 rangers weren't the main fighting squad, the Alien Rangers were until they got their bodies back.
Beetleborgs gave kids an actual fighting squad composed of their own peer group and this was a concept the PR staff wanted to attempt for themselves after seeing Beetleborg's success.
Pacific Rim 2 is still a thing, Del Taco tweeted two days ago that it's still alive and well, and he is sumiting the script and budget, and I imagine that if Universal are faggots about it he will go to another studio or release it himself, I mean, that shit is his baby there's no way he is going to let the franchise die
I thought it wasn't the suit, just the left over material used to make the suit?
This was just before I blocked his posts on Facebook. Nice to see him embrace the role but holy fuck that ego, and holier fuck he types like a preteen girl
He claimed it was the actual suit. At least his ad did.
And that's nothing to say of the time he got his fans to raid an exclusive toy contest to make sure his suits where in the running, when their release was a given.
I stopped when they started completely ripping off sentai, when there was no connection to past series it became so dull. If they kept passing the torch to new people and did call backs to previous team members like have an old blue be the next red the series would be much more original.
The worst season was samurai almost every scene was a copy paste of shinkenger.
he was a cunt on set too, and was one of the leading forces behind the harassment david yost complained about.
david yost is also a faget and a diva, but yeah, JDF has been a cunt since he landed the role.
mystic force was a copypaste remake too.
and then they tried to do something new with megaforce, and it was fucking awful.
>tiki themed morphers and sensei
>HURR LETS USE THE GOSEIGER ANGEL SUITS...THEN ABRUPTLY SWITCH TO GOKAIGER PIRATES!
Speaking of Japanese things that were a hit in France, I've recently started watching the French version of UFO Robo Grendizer (localized as "Goldorak le robot de l'espace") and it's surprisingly pretty good so far. The theme song's fucking catchy too, and as far as I can tell, the show's much more faithful to the original series than anything Saban has ever localized.
Is RPM the only series where everyone still acting?
I know Tenaya and Summer are on the CW, Scott was on Jessica Jones and Terra Nova, ziggy, K and Sam did that weird ass meth movie...
>Keep in mind that In Space is the result of massive re-writes and everyone going balls to the walls because they all thought it was going to be the last season
Two of the best PR seasons ever made happened solely because of this

It would have been so easy to adapt. It COULD have been great. No doubt they would have gutted it too.
I think that may partly be due to the fact that the RPM cast were in an actors union.
Or at least, joined one after the show
It's why in the Samurai and RPM crossover Scott couldn't show his face
Beetleborgs had an interesting development, basically Saban combined two different show concepts together when he realized he didn't have the money to do both, one was a more standard Toku concept using B-Fighter as the source footage, the other was a goofy comedy idea involving monsters living in a mansion, those got mixed together to make Beetleborgs(which is why that show is so freaking weird even by Saban standards)
yeah that whole arc(indeed most of season 3) was kinda lame
I don't remember all my reasons but part of it had to do with it being the first Sentai to have each Ranger have their own vehicle to make up the robot, also would have it be such a success that Saban would bring over both Kamen Rider(Black to be specific), and Metal Heroes(starting with Juspion) as well, although Kamen Rider's initial US run is short since the franchise went into hibernation after RX ended(though both ZO & J would have their movies adapted as specials in the 90's), and at least two Metal Heroes series would be skipped over in the US(Jiraya and Blue SWAT)
I have a soft spot for s3 mmpr and zeo, so I would personally move those up, but in terms of quality, I have to agree with this.
Funny how the best 3 seasons of power rangers were all meant to be the "last season"
I thought she stole the green power coin just before landing in the space dumpster.
Also explained why she needed two sets of spells in order for Tommy to stay loyal to her (the initial spell, then the sword of darkness)
It had two other redeeming things
