Holy crap... Shout Factory is making a complete series (as of the end of this year anyway) DVD box set. That's right, all 20 seasons as of the end of 2013, from MMPR through Megaforce.

The set will consist of a whopping 98 discs. 6 of these discs contain the bonus features, which includes some material made especially for the set. There are also two empty slots, so you can add the two movies if you have them.

The case for the set is a replica of the original Red Ranger helmet.

It will be released on December 3. No price has been announced yet.

Rangercrew Blog
The price has been announced: It's $650, with free shipping in the continental US.

Suffice to say only the truly diehard fans will be getting this.

Re: Power Rangers

Okay, I think we have a new winner for the stupidest-looking Ranger power-up ever. First off, those new swords are ridiculous, with the big plastic globes on the hilts. What the hell is that supposed to be? But just as stupid is the new armor with the big dragon heads sticking out of their chests. It's painfully obvious that the huge dragon heads limit their freedom of arm movement, especially when trying to spin those ridiculous swords with the big plastic globes on them. And the armor was basically doing the fighting for them, so why were the Rangers even needed? This was really pretty awful.

And while the climax of the episode made the Rangers look stupid, the first half of the episode made them act stupid. They were way too slow to catch on to the fact that the monster was just creating illusions, even though he was very obvious about his fakery.

Oh, and it was pretty incongruous when the Wild Sword broke free and destroyed all the buildings for a block around -- buildings that I doubt would've had time to be evacuated -- because it didn't want to hurt anyone. Talk about your mixed messages.

I haven't caught up yet, but the power up we already have is pretty convoluted already with them having to stick a card in their brick phones. And those protruding heads from the chest in the armor... Not looking forward to those.

Re: Power Rangers

While there are elements of the Goseiger production design that are clever (the suits themselves are amazing, as are many of the monster designs) the Headder gimmick was pretty dumb.

Those swords always reminded me of those toys that kids push along the floor that have parts in them that "pop" as they go. And the stupid microphones that they tried to sell when they had the cast do their own version of the already obnoxious ending song? Urgh.

Re: Power Rangers

The name of the 2014 sentai series has officially been licensed


http://henshinjustice.com/2013/09/25...tai-tokkyuger/

Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger.


The title Ressha is a pun on the Japanese word ressha, which means train using the kanji characters for 烈車 vehement car instead of the usual 列車 line car. While Tokkyu means limited express train. Our new Super Sentai will most likely be train-based!
All that's known are it will involve trains

^I didn't know about that, but I did think there was a chance someone had already done it. Ideally there should be a yellow component and a pink one, though.

Actually, that would be the battlizer from Lightspeed Rescue, IMO. It has the giant protruding chest armor, and then some.



In fact, pretty much all of the battlizers look more ridiculous than Megaforce's Ultra Mode. The Quantum Ranger's battlizer even gives him roller blades.

This reminded me of Lightspeed Rescue's Supertrain Megazord.

Which is not a good thing.

Granted, that's a little unwieldy, but it's not as bad as these. The chest piece is more tapered and doesn't seem to interfere with movement nearly as much. And it isn't alive and moving. And it doesn't have a stupid-looking sword with a big plastic globe on the pommel. It's the double awkwardness of the armor with the big unnecessary piece getting in the way combined with the sword with the big unnecessary piece getting in the way that really pushes it over the top.

There's the "Trainsformers" videos on Youtube, if you haven't seen these before.

It's loud and colorful but that's what's making this season the most balls to the walls season yet







It's certainly reviving sales and ratings a bit after the incredibly depressing "Gobusters"



It's even got kid's up and dancing






There was even a couple getting married that did the dance.
