Re: Power Rangers

I like the idea of Cat Rangers, but I'm not sure it could work.

"Rangers! A monster is attacking the city!"
"Aww, go away, we're taking a nap."

Re: Power Rangers

The monsters would quickly learn to attack only on Mondays.

I'm surprised Sentai hasn't done a full-on train theme yet. There's the occasional train mecha in series, but not a complete theme. Trains permeate everyday life in Japan so thoroughly, so hitting on this would have to happen eventually. Just imagine! five-plus youngsters making sure the city is safe from monsters, AND keeping the trains on time!

^Umm, no, those were the specifically car-themed ones, but as Mark said, we've also seen ones based on rescue vehicles, police vehicles, and construction vehicles -- not to mention the odd spaceship or timeship theme.
It seems I misinterpreted your question. I thought you meant the theme of the team in general, not just their mechas.

Re: Power Rangers

Yikes. I can certainly understand the desire to let the actors' faces show through the helmets, but wow, that is totally not the way to do it. But then, I hated the movie version of the MMPR costumes anyway -- they took something rather elegant and made it all clunky and angular.

Re: Power Rangers

Kyoryuger VS Go-busters just got more awesome














The Daizyujin suit is probably still new since they created a new one for the Gokaiger movie



Story summary

"The Great Gathering of History's Dinosaur Sentai Teams"

The Kyoryuger and Go-Busters challenge the "Greatest Dinosaur Battle" ever seen on Earth!

Suddenly, both Tyrannoranger of Kyoryuu Sentai Zyuranger and AbaRed of Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger appear before the the Kyoryuger and explain of a great enemy that threatens them.

The identity of this enemy is "Uchuu Ikusagami Borudosu" (Space War God Borudosu), who will use the feelings of revenge from past enemies of Dinosaur Super Sentai, creating "Neo Grifforzar" and "Neo Gailton". Borudosu also resurrects Enter and Escape, whom the Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters had fought, and the villains unite into a single evil force!

The Kyoryuger, who are fighting an unseen evil, meet with the Go-Busters, and the "Greatest Trap ever seen on Earth" is sprung. What rises up against the true dinosaurs, and the death of your best friends? Now, the Kyoryuger must try and use the "True Brave".


"Neo Grifforzar" and "Neo Gailton" in MMPR was Goldar and Zeltrax in Dinothunder


These might some kind of updated/distorted version of the original characters brought back

Re: Power Rangers

^"Zeltrax" from DT was actually a piece of armor in Abaranger. Galilton was just the first wielder who only lasted two episodes into the show before being killed. The armor was used mostly by Abareblack's wife and later Abareblack before becoming a puppet for the main villian.

Re: Power Rangers

Well, "End Game" was pretty mediocre, like the whole season. It flirted with being a big event, but too much of it was just a routine battle, without the Megazords even coming into play. For a moment, it looked like it was going to be the kind of cliffhanger finale they had in the early seasons, where the Rangers were left without their powers and Zords at the end of a season, to pave the way for getting new ones the following season. But instead they got their destroyed morphers conveniently restored and they were back in costume at the end.

Not only that, but there was nothing really going on character-wise either. The only one who got any remotely interesting characterization was Metal Alice. So it wasn't much of a climax from that perspective either. Overall, this has been a weak season for characterization. They haven't done anything of note with the supporting characters, Ernie and the kooky teacher. And we barely know anything more about the Rangers as people, especially Troy, then we knew in episode 1. Even Samurai had more character development than Megaforce has had.

That said, the final moments of the alien armada attacking were pretty darn impressive. Hopefully next season will be at least superficially more interesting with the Legend War/anniversary stuff kicking in. At least I hope we've seen the last of Robo Knight, whose voice was seriously annoying.

Re: Power Rangers

That was like, 5-6 episodes of Goseiger plus some Gokaiger movie footage, plus an episode of Gokaiger rolled into one.


This 20 episode season thing is really stupid. I don't have high hopes for Super Megaforce.




In other news. "Neo Gailton"(Zeltrax and "Neo Grifforzar"(Goldar) revealed for Kyoryuger VS Go-busters

Re: Power Rangers

Apparently the Tokkyuger will be able to switch colors, that's why they have the numbers in their names instead of the colors.

There's a picture of a green ranger with the number 1 in the toy catalogue, at first I thought it was green changing from number 4 to 1 but instead it's number 1 changing from red to green.

Re: Power Rangers

Maybe Den-O will return for a movie with them. It's been years since he last showed up.

Judging by the designs, it's all Bandai now.
