The stunt suit will probably be different.

Re: Power Rangers

Haim Saban caught lightning in a bottle with the original MMPR cast + Jason David Frank.

Did they even need Bulk & Skull?

Anyways, if they just decide to stick any attractive martial artist/gymnast/dancer in those latex suits the shows and the concepts won't be as successful.

Or else you endup with Rocky ("Shudder!") and Aisha.

Re: Power Rangers

Bulk and Skull's son are just there to infuse "Samurai" with some MMPR nostalgia

Let's Morphin!

STAFF:

Chief Producer- Takebe Naomi
Main Writer- Kobayashi Yasuko
Action Director- Fukuzawa Hirofumi


STORY:

The Go-Busters. 3 Heroes, and their 3 Partners, the BuddyRoids. Their "Mission"- Protect the Earth, as only they can, a battle for their fate tinged with "Special Mission" begins!

The stages for their battle are the Earth, and another world that looks just like Japan. Events that happened 13 years ago are where the story starts. 13 years ago, a Bug-like Program was created accidentally, and began to run wild on the Energy Management Office's Main Computer. Somehow, the building is transported to another dimension. As a by-product of the battle, man obtains the mysterious energy known as "Vaam".

13 years later. In the present time, Vaam has become an indispensable energy source. The bug program, from another dimension, once again begins its invasion of Earth. 3 children who escaped from the Energy Management office building 13 years ago appear. Acting together with their BuddyRoids, they have obtained specific abilties beyond what normal humans can do! They are the Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters!


RedBuster:
Legs have been empowered with unbelievable speed. Makes Chida Nikku his partner.


Chida Nikku:
Cheetah-type mecha. Positive thinker, and though a robot, has no sense of direction. Acts like an older brother to RedBuster. Able to transform into a motorcycle for RedBuster to ride into battle (where his face becomes the handle and meter.) When fighting in robot mode, Nikku can also use his rear wheels as handheld weapons.


BlueBuster:
The fated youth who gained awesome physical strength. Eldest of the Go-Busters. Makes Gorisaki Banana into his partner.


Gorisaki Banana:
Gorilla-type mecha. Faint hearted character who falls easy, and apologizes immediately for it. Always worried about BlueBuster. Acts as a mechanic in the base.


YellowBuster:
Girl of fate who gained incredible kicking and jumping power. Makes Usada Letas into her partner.


Usada Letas:
Unyielding and selfish. Always quarreling with YellowBuster. Works on Data Management in the Control Room.


Buster Gear:

Equipment the Go-Busters use to go into battle, and conduct espionage. The Go-Busters suits also carry the spy motif (glasses and shoulder straps.) Indeed one of the themes of Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters is Spy Action. The first Super Sentai, Goranger, had the spy game as a main component, and in a way, Go-Busters marks the "first new sentai series."



Morphin Brace:

Transformation item which is equipped on the left arm. By calling out "Let's Morphin!", transformation is activated.



Ichigan Buster:

Single-Lens Reflex Camera that transforms into a gun, long range battle weapon. Has a special function in Camera mode.


Sougan Blade:

Binoculars that transform into a sword, short range battle weapon. Has a special function in Binocular mode.



(Ichigan Buster)Special Buster Mode:

Ichigan Buster + Sougan Blade. Fires a more powerful attack.


Transpod:

Buster Gear equipped to the Shoulder Strap of the Go-Busters' suits. Has the Go-Busters' mark. Transmission equipment which transports different items and weapons. (As from the toys, we also know it's a communicator/voice changer.)



Also, Koyasu Takehito:
http://koyap.jugem.jp/

is currently rumored to be voicing Gorisaki Banana. Given the character, that totally works

Re: Power Rangers

Chief Producer - Naomi Takebe
Main Writer - Yasuko Kobayashi

So it's going to be a stinking pile of shit judging by the staff. I'm really not surprised that "morphing" was used since Kobayashi was the one who had "G-Zord" in the Timeranger series.

Huh? Kobayashi's a great writer, I loved every series she wrote. I don't know what Naomi Takebe did exactly, only that she worked on Kamen Rider for years and considering that Kamen Rider kicks ass, I'm pretty exited.

Re: Power Rangers

She produced Kamen Rider OOO recently. I watched the whole series and to me the whole thing just zoomed by.

One minute you're on episode 4 and the next you're on episode 30.

I think this series will have alot more "Kamen Rider" influence in style and tone.

The background plot of the building transported to another dimension and three kids escaping the building sounds like something Kamen Rider would do.

She did Kamen Rider Kiva which essentially Twilight + KR.

She also known for stuffing her shows with toys, relatively little plot progression through the series, no continuity with the movies and for destroying the ratings for the Rider franchise, which still haven't recovered.

Basically a kind of producer the people selling toys would love.

Edit: which also means that she won't be back for the next rider series

Which is funny because Go-buster lacks a gimmick.

No special key's or engine souls or auxiliary animals.

Apparently Gokaiger's Ranger key's are doing so well that they're continuing the line till early 2012.

Re: Power Rangers

I'm digging the suits this time out. I've always liked the more mecha-oriented / paramilitary / police Sentai versus the magical / mystical editions, and these guys look like they could actually WEAR their threads in mixed company. This may be the first one I have more than a passing interest in since Dekaranger.

That said, I recently caught the Gokaiger vs. Goseiger movie and enjoyed it. The cameos from Sentai series I both did and didn't know was great, and they even featured the Daedenjin toy I actually HAD as a kid! Now, I know that continuity is hardly a priority in this sort of show,but it did seem wierd that ALL of the previous Sentais were still up and around fighting... Don't some of them lose their powers at the end of their series, akin to their Ranger counterparts?

First rule of Sentai (and PR) Club...never ask WHY things are the way they are. As you've mentioned, the teams typically lose their powers at series end-regain them for the for a one shot movie, then lose them again. Gokaiger's premise dictated, all 34 previous teams somehow gathered to fight the Zangyack empire, lost their powers after winning, with the pirates venturing out and gaining possession of them.
