Which cover looks the best VISUALLY?
Not who your favorite ranger is, but just aesthetically.
I can only afford one
When I went to my LCS, there was only blue, yellow, and pink left on the shelves. Telling of which ones were the most popular. I picked up the yellow ranger one (of course, given the options)
I thought it was pretty good, especially the Bulk & Skull part, only real complaint I have is that the original monster has an awful design(at least as far as being a Rita monster, it'd be ok if bland in a more recent series)
I loved it. I'm sure you can get away by just starting on #1 or waiting for the trade but I'm actually going to my LCS for the first time in a long long time because I want to support this title.
Yellow seems pretty popular here. I love the hand and hair too but the eyes on the Sabertooth Tiger helmet look kinda like a sad/lazy faced cartoon tiger and the shading on the yellow outfit looks kinda green and less pleasant to me. It has both pros and cons I guess.
For me Black has the best manly shoulders, his hand positions are kinda lame but his helmet design, size and position (doesn't collide with the belt like Red Ranger) are all top notch.
Here's how I would rank them:
Fucking exactly. I remember back in elementary school when a new Power Ranger series came out you were liable to get into friendship ruining arguments over who's now the best ranger. Now that I'm older and wiser I know that the only true answer is "whichever one Tommy Oliver currently is".
Nah man, JDF is an ass. He still holds grudges against Austin St. John. He was the prankster on set but it went too far when David Yost (Billy) was suicidal and shit JDF kept calling him a faggot. I just think he's an egomaniac dude but everyone seems to support that by acting like he's the most special ranger ever. If you've seen interviews with him, it's always about him and how he's the best and how he cares about fans the most and did cons before everyone else, blah blah blah. Johnny Yong Bosch did cons way before him for his anime dubbing career. And when Rick Medina (Wild Force Red stabbed some guy with a sword in real life) all the rangers were trying to show some kinda respect towards the situation but JDF decides to talk shit on him before knowing the full story.
Torn between the yellow and the green, but the red is nice too.
alright guys, rank them
as of now, Dino charge is decent.
JDF talking shit:
David Yost's interview about being gay:
>it went too far when David Yost (Billy) was suicidal and shit JDF kept calling him a faggot
JDF did prank him but never called him a faggot, Yost even confirmed that it was the crew and some of the producers, but not a single cast member.
Yeah, design-wise it peaked at dairanger.
Probably pink or black. Red's hand is fucked up, blue's torso looks a bit off, the colors on Yellow look weird to the point of looking lime green because of the shading, and Green's hands also look weird.
Maybe. But he might secretly love the Black Ranger anyway. I know this Vietnamese dude, who just says up front, he loves the Yellow Ranger because it was cool to see a Vietnamese person as a superhero. He got the Yellow one.
A Zyuranger comic? Such a weird choice to base a comic on seeing how it's number 16 of 40, it's not that signifigant.
But it is pretty pathetic to still be milking MMPR in 2016. I can't imagine there are many 30somethings still hung up over it, whatever JDF's limited success to milk money out of the few remaining.
MMPR nostalgia is so shitty but most casuals don't even know that the series continued after that. There are so many more awesome iterations that will never get the push they deserve.
Remember the season 3 episodes where she's dressed like a complete slut? This caused me to fap before I was able to even produce sperm.
I enjoyed Mystic Force mostly for Xander. That, and they had pretty sexy capes.
Who goes first?
If only I could find it. Not seeing it for sale anywhere, though and my LCS doesn't know anything about it
I would flip so hard for one of this.
They both seem equally qt 3.14 to me. Were they really THAT different?
B-but being a fagget was actually the key to being close to her in real life. Out of all the male rangers, David Yost is the closest to her.
What you guys think of the new costumes?
...I hope the animal faces get emblazoned armor for super animal modes.
Power Primal Rangers?
Is Galaxy the one where they live on the millennium falcon or where they have jungle based megazords or something like that?
The one on the spaceship was cool and the other was meh.
YES, YES, YES!
RPM was Disney's give no fuck series. They were going to end the series and let the producers do nearly whatever they wanted.
>villain wins and kills humanity like Skynet
>humans trapped in one city
>great rangers with personalities
>great non-ranger leader with Doctor K.
>ending was originally super dark and not happy resolution until Disney stepped in.
You know what I hope for this series?
That they use the concept of the Dinozords combining with the White Tigerzord
The only Thunderzord worth a damn was the Red Dragon anyway
while i like the masks, i hate the chest
it looks like someone on production got their hands on a screen printing machine and just said "fuck it, we're not sewing anything this season"
Post your favourite scene from any of the series
>Wes' last stand against the mooks after he sent his team home to the future
since my childhood I liked green ranger the best, so he was just like a dude with his own big badass dinosaur robot on par with megazord
what's up with his dagger though? is there a lore thing explaining this?
>This seems like the best place to ask
Jesus you fucked up
I don't know why, but I really dislike these, even though I loved Gekiranger's suits.
Actually, these new suits have produced me some second feelings of disgust over Gekiranger's. These fucking suits ruined me some of my favorite rangers desings. What the fuck.
GekiChopper still looks baller.
From what I remembered, only retailers who attended a conference got it. In short, if your retailer is a member of that group and he wants to sell, you can get it.
So can someone explain to me why I should consider Power Rangers a seperate thing from Super Sentai?
The story can be a bit different but that doesn't change the fact that all they did was carve out the asians and replace them with white people.
It's easier to think of them as an alternate universe. Think like, 616 and Ultimate Marvel. Similar designs, different story for a different group of people, ultimate is built off the existance of 616, etc.
Except Samurai. Fuck Samurai. It was literally Shinkenger with white people.
super sentai actually refrence power rangers is a separate thing
essentially, power rangers takes the fight scenes, and overarching plot of a series, then rewrites it with america/canada
the biggest change (other than the obvious you mentioned) is it will often remove segments/stories and add more plain clothes, or just remove whole episodes to change and/or leave out plot points
the biggest of which, lord zedd, isn't from super sentai
While I too think Kuuga is the best I for one tell new people to save it for last. I have always been one who like to save the best for last cause once you go Kuuga all other Heisei riders just to stack up.
Stupid Go Busters why did you have to have Human Villains that shit makes it much harder to adapted over here. Also Fuck you Bandai, just cause Japanese kids have shit tasted doesn't mean Kids over here wouldn't buy the toys. Hell Kids bought Samurai toys and Samurai was ass.
Pretty Much all of Kuuga was based. They wanted to bring Rider into the 2000's and they knocked it out the park.
Too bad I don't have the md of the first bike fight that shit was amazing.
The 2000-present ones, made after a long break, are alright but the older ones have their own charm.
The older and cheaper they get, the more it feels like Adam West Batman but more serious. And if I can make just one quibble with the newer ones they get too gadgety and alt-modey, including the transformation devices. But hey it's all toyetic.
The yellow ranger was NOT A GIRL!
America was LIED TO by a JEW!
>tfw I find the blue RPM ranger totally dreamy
I wanna diddle his willy
Black people fucking love Zack, man
We've still got the mangas - you can even buy some of them off ComiXology!
Heisei have been hitting it out of the park with most of their recent shows, but there's still something to be said for the Showa stuff. The original Kamen Rider series hasn't been completely subbed (to be fair, it's 99 episodes long) but you could always check out the first couple of episodes, just to get a feel for the franchise.
That said, the most beloved Showa series are V3, Amazon and Black. Just be aware that the fight scenes in Amazon tend to get pretty fucked up... like, REALLY fucked up.
>I was a Threaterfag as they call it
Do people really say that?
He also doesn't say JDF called him a fag at all. I didn't watch the first two videos because it seems he was heated and being asked question to bait him into saying stuff. The guy can be made and not like someone, that doesn't make him a dick. I'm a nice guy but I don't people I don't like and won't put up with.
To me it seems he chilled out after he found Jesus. He does a lot of fan stuff that he doesn't need to do for Power Rangers. People give him a bad rap because he was a bit of a jerk when he was younger, most people are.
Yellow Ranger was my waifu
too bad she couldn't drive
What is the best Megazord, and why is it the Mega Voyager?
>Zack is Chinese
>Trini is Latina
>Billy is black
>Kimberly is Indian
>Jason is still white
Bravo, they made the team Burger King Kids levels of inclusive and no one bitched. Has there not been any word on Tommy yet?
Divatox was the only good thing about that season. Everything else is fucking horrible. Not to mention they tried to make a serious show out of series that was making fun of itself, and in the end we got a really awkward looking PR season.
Actually, Black is considered one of the best Showa series you fucking idiot. It's Black RX which is considered weird since it's a direct sequel to Black yet feels completely different, both in tone and portrayal of main character.
I'm not really a KR fan, but when I was interested in it back like 10 years ago I remember V3 being considered one of the best Showa series? What happened? What Showa series are generally considered the best now?
>Black is considered one of the best Showa series
It WAS. Not anymore though. Since the other shows got more subs people have reevaluated it. Go on /m/ in /krg/ and start whining about how great Black is compared to the previous series and watch how you get your ass raped.
>It's a Power Rangers thread
>Immediately slips into sentai
>Completely derails into Kamen Rider
Zordbuilder is the only thing the western toys have over the originals.
god dammit, i'm so tired of this exclusive cover shit.
white and green aren't that bad but 'ask your retailer if they will sell you theirs!' has just turned me off on collecting this issue.
Ever since Stronger was subbed it pretty much took the spot of best Showa. Black for all it's bluster of being 'dark' and 'mature' is actually worse in many respects to the previous series (Black always having to call his bike to save him every single episode, the same two attacks at the end of every episode).
In general it comes down to original, Stronger, and Amazon. Nobody even likes V3 that much anymore. Toei themselves shit on him in GP.
Actually /toy/ sales were spectacular for Ohranger, it's the show ratings that were bad. Granted, Ohranger kinda muscled in on /toy/ sales by being the second series with two main combining mecha, in addition to a bunch of other support mechas and a carrier mecha. Its what kept the show alive while the ratings sank.
Actually, fansites from the 90's. Yeah, I've been around that long. Some of the earliest information in english about Kamen Rider centered on V3
Forget everything years of Western capeshit has brainwashed into you, almost everything you know will no longer apply.
Read up on series you think look good and find where you can download them
Also don't watch Power Rangers (except RPM), watch Sentai if anything
Almost everything you know about superheroes as forced into your head from western capeshit. Just purge it from your mind.
Always and forever, no contest.
>tfw finally pulled the trigger on a Legacy White Tigerzord in anticipation of the Thunder Megazord set
So hyped. It's awesome how much better Legacy version is to the original Tigerzord
>The season when it was all about Max "Black Ranger" Rockatansky
>Red Ranger mattering at all
He did more in the crossover episode in Samurai than in his entire show, and that's because he was the only one from RPM there.
There is only one right answer and none of you fuckers got it.
Don't get me wrong, Shogun is great and probably my second favorite, but it's hard to top the joy that is the Thunder Megazord.
There's only one way this can be settled.
Ninja Megafalconzord is better, IMO
>tfw can't find a single decent picture of it on google images
Red was from the present and had a rich father, Pink was a hardass and had a husband in the future, Green could see the future and was a sperg, Yellow was super strong... What was Blue's thing again? Race cars?
I miss traditional 2D fighting games that just HAPPENED to be about giant characters. Sure, there were never many of those in the first place, but still, Pacific Rim is the molds of this would be cool.
>see someone is selling a ninja megazord
>see that the frog zord is signed by JYB
It was the last decent song before the intros went straight to shit with Mystic Force through RPM, then uninspired retreads with Samurai through Super Megaforce and back to shit in Dino Charge. It's actually pretty impressive they managed to keep a streak of godlike intros until Mystic Force, tho.
You took both of mine.
I guess I'll go back to the old classic.
Question for the posters in this thread.
Are you regulars on /co/ that held back on talking about Power Rangers until now? or are you actually from /m/ and decided to migrate over here to discuss the comics?
Nice. I was wondering why the /prg/ thread over there was kinda quiet about the comic.
I consider myself more /co/ but I have 2 main loves in life. Power Rangers as a franchise but comics as a medium. I've always sorta jumped back and forth between /co/ and /m/ (specifically, I only go to the /prg/ thread) but this is a wonderful time to see both Power Rangers and Comics collide.
>STILL full of arguing
Not really. You occasionally get a sentaifag trying to start shit, but no-one cares anymore. There's a Sentai general, there's a PR general, there's no need for anyone to get mad.
Xenos back here again
I got him the black ranger cover and his girlfriend called me a racist, my trans gf tried to defend me saying I was no racist but she went on a racist speech and my friend asked me to leave because I was making his family unconfortable with my racism
I really liked power rangers and gundam when I was a kid. I haven't seen either since, but I'd like to get back into Gundam via the Origin books and I'm thinking about starting kamen rider
It's hard to believe because /co/ isn't blessed enough to get a qt trans gf.
sorry if what went down is true. I was the one that recommended it after my Vietnamese friend liked the Yellow Ranger cover
Tyrannosaurus zord from the new movie.
I dislike the Bayformer organic-metal looks.
It'd be cool to have something like this.
Haven't seen the show since childhood. Do they STILL cut to footage of Jap shows for the action scenes or did they get it together to film their own yet?
RPM was almost entirely an American show, but used assets from the Sentai.
Samurai was a watered down copy of the Sentai.
[Super] Megaforce copied the stuff that didn't need to be copied and didn't use the jap footage that was practically made for PR
Dino Charge has a really good balance between JP/US footage, and some new fights
Well, facing the inevitability that it won't be the boxy look I want, this is not the worst design in the world. I could work with it.
Honestly, my expectations for this movie are so low that as long as it's better than that travesty Power/Ranger thing, I'm cool.
I don't even understand. Your black friend's gf was probably already pre-bitch mode waiting for a chance to strike. She probably wanted to ruin your friendship. It's not normal to start yelling at someone for buying a gift.
fuck man, i want that thunder megazord so bad. I'm trying to be more selective with the legacy line now though, because it's too expensive buying everything. I skipped titanus, saba, and the white tigerzord (which i still have the urge to buy...)
Wish I had your self restraint man, I have the megazord, dragonzord, titanus, dragon dagger, saba, morpher with the original 5 coins, dragon and tiger coin morpher and the the movie edition white ranger morpher with the tiger and falcon coin. Just picked up the blade blaster a couple days ago. I have all this shit displayed on my dresser in my room and it is literally the first thing you see when you open my door, thus assuring I will never have sex again.
>Murderer Red Ranger
>Cringeworthy Blue/Black bromance
>Followed Time Force
The best thing about Wild Force was Forever Red and that one part when Quantum Ranger almost fucked Wild Force Yellow with his Quantum dick
I disagree about it being better than half of Disney era, but I agree with you about Megaforce and Supermegaforce. I don't care so much that they wasted Goseiger, but the wasted potential of Gokaiger footage, costumes, and powers combined with possibly the worst Ranger actor in history with Troy really ruined that series. Not to mention the horrible way the Ranger war was handled. It was absolute shit tier as well.
>Go check up on Cole's situation
>Got released two days after initial arrest for further investigations
>Arrested again this past Friday to face the charges
>Looking at life sentence with chance of parole after 26 years
Well, shit. Don't murder your roommates with fucking katanas, kids.
I actually watched it just to see the end battle thinking man this season is shit but the pay off should be worth it, epic battle blah blah blah.
Finally get to the end and I feel cheated out of my time. Holy shit it was done so poorly
That's an amazing set anon. Be proud!
I restrain myself by thinking about how I'll probably run out of display area in the future. I have a pretty small room and I'm screwed if the Legacy line decides to continue covering more seasons beyond MMPR since there are just so many beautiful looking morpher/weapon/megazord designs in the franchise. I basically caused myself to have missing legacy items in my collection early on, so I can avoid the completionist habit... otherwise, I'd end up homeless.
Do you buy the legacy figures as well?
This is my current collection. I'm not planning on buying any of those figures yet but if I can budget it in the future (and find more space) I definitely will
>high quality mecha toys in japan cost $50-80
>high quality mecha toys in america cost $150+
Are we sure what the murder weapon was?
Either way, in my mind he used this.
Iv thought the same thing. Only problem is my apartment has a slant that runs right through my room, between that and how ridiculously top heavy the ultazord is with all that diecast metal I'm scared it would roll into the floor.
As it is I already prop something in front of titanus and have it sitting at an angle so it doesn't roll away
Those were the 3 I was thinking of actually. So I guess almost half of disney is what I should have said.
Yep, saw them at Toys R Us. They are pretty sexy because they come with the movie alt mode helmets too. I'm thinking about getting Red just because he has that scanning visor thing.
>Pac Rim 2D fighter
Why has nobody made that yet?
I'unno... that cat chick from SPD?
I assumed she'd get with Rex at the end, maybe give him some closure on his dead wife, but nope - turns out his wife was alive after all
/co/ born and bred. I pop over to /m/ once in a blue moon, but only to lurk. One guy gave me dl links to Supaidaman back when I was fuming at Spider-Verse
Wow... sorry. I honestly didn't think it'd turn out like THAT.
I'm kind of kicking myself for not getting the Figuarts Green or White when I could. I go back and forth on how much I like them, but the Green Ranger looks pretty great. And now it's $100+. Maybe one day it'll get a rerelease or renewal...
Red + Shield is still available for cheap, but it's just not as cool looking.
>It's a spy themed sentai that got skipped from adaptation into Power Rangers
I like the idea, but when I last tried to get into sentai with Dekarangers I couldn't do it, should I bother to try again with this?
Yeah it'is heavily inspired by Power Rangers. (e.g. their bracers say it's morphin time, big bad is based off the one from rpm; the enemies they fight use "megazords")
It's written by the best Sentai writer and it does a lot of interesting stuff with the formula like having rangers with radically different ages, only needing one pilot for the megazord so the others can continue battling the monster of the week; actually having the megazord break and need repairs.
Another good one is Toqger which won't be adapted and is my personal favourite of all sentai or power rangers. It's really lighthearted but super fun and will fill your life with Joy. The theming in it is also fantastic.
Just look for subs by Overtime for either and not TV Nihon.
I wanted to but that shit is expensive, I know that sounds dumb when you look at the rest of the collection but I had to cut cost somewhere or I wouldn't be able to get all the other shit I have. Plus they were kind of an after thought to the rest of it.
Thanks a bunch, I'll give them both a watch. Although I have to say, even for a lighthearted series, this might be the worst sentai costume I've seen.
Something about the jungle fury theme makes me cringe so hard. Its like trying to be good until it makes me realize im a permanent virgin.
I hate when america adapts the more asian themed sentais like ninjas/samurai/martial arts cause it comes off so fuckin cheesy beyond weeb level. Only ninja storm did ok.
How come Geki/Jason never used the Dragon Armor that often? And in America, the Red Ranger completely stopped using it altogether when Tommy came back as the White Ranger. Did Rocky not have access to it?
/co/ and /m/ are those brothers who like the same thing but one of them is an asshole who puts on how what he likes is more sophisticated than his brothers despite them being the exact same thing
