Dino Fury S2 links in the OP are still dead.
>>21569081The KRSentai ones have been long dead, but the Dex ones seemingly alive? They have part 2 of S2 as well: https://dexuploads.blogspot.com/2022/09/the-tv-show-dino-fury-season-2-episodes.htmlAnd just noticing the Dino Fury S1 Mega is only the first half of it, should probably just replace it all with Dex links if they all still work.
>>21569100Oh I didn't realise Dex had the rest of season 2.
I just realized how Masked Rider was destined to die. Even if it took off in the states, there wasn’t like anymore Kamen Rider to pull from to use. Meaning crossovers would have just been dead in the water
>>21569124You can say that for every non-PR toku localization that came here.
No Once & Always poster for the OP image, OP?
>>21569346Waiting for full Robo Rita reveal
>>21569124It's so obvious when you compare Masked Rider to MMPR in quality that the only reason it was made was to make sure other studios couldn't snatch up their own Toku and copy Saban's success, and they didn't have any interest in actually doing it, it may have even been deliberately set up to fail so that they wouldn't have to spend money making future seasons but could still ensure the IP was off the board.
>>21569358I hope she's still hot
>>21569361>it may have even been deliberately set up to fail so that they wouldn't have to spend money making future seasons but could still ensure the IP was off the board.Except if Toei believed that to be true, they would've severed ties with Saban years earlier. Haim's a snake, but even he knows pissing off the people making his golden goose isn't a smart idea..
>>21569361But Syber Squad and two Western Ultraman series had happened by that point.
Dead thread, dead franchise
>>21569358>>21569363Thinking about it just now, I wonder if she's going to be full-on "Robot Rita" from the get-go, or if they're going to try to make it seem like Rita has returned and then halfway through the special her human face gets ripped off and they're going to be all "OMG it's not Rita, it was a robot all along!"
>>21569398He just did that by selling off PR to Hasbro, a major competitor to Bandai. Guess he got senile or just doesn't give a fuck about pissing off Japan since he's worth billions>>21569421Real surprised Tsuburaya even allowed it. They usually protect their shit from foreigners to maintain its integrity. >>21569124Same with VR Troopers. I wished they had adapted Janperson, Blue SWAT, or any of the other 90's cop Metal Heroes. The footage was still recent enough compared to Kamen Rider Black and Black RX.
>>21569421And if it weren't for the fact that Toei and Tsuburaya are two separate companies and Haim only had a relationship with one of them, he would've been the one making those too.
>>21569453>Guess he got senile or just doesn't give a fuck about pissing off Japan since he's worth billionsOr because the movie bombed and PR wasn't a golden goose anymore by the time Haim sold it.
>>21569453>Real surprised Tsuburaya even allowed it. They usually protect their shit from foreigners to maintain its integrity.They were actually semi-hands on with their western projects except for Tiga, weirdly enough. To the point where they still treat the dropped pitch for a Hanna-Barbera series as canon.>Same with VR Troopers. I wished they had adapted Janperson, Blue SWAT, or any of the other 90's cop Metal Heroes. The footage was still recent enough compared to Kamen Rider Black and Black RX.That one was a matter of face actors being much more prevalent in the police/rescue series and Jiban just being Japanese Robocop. Even with Spielvan, they could barely get around the original footage at points.
>>21569505This. Adapting any of the cop/rescue Metal Heroes shows would've been difficult or impossible because there's less than a minute of footage per episode where there aren't any Japanese people in the scene, and sometimes there isn't even a monster for them to fight, just a face actor. Watch a random episode of Solbrain and see how little footage they could have used.
A show like Janperson is so awesome and insane, I'm sure kids wouldn't have even cared about it being dubbed desu or at least I wouldn't have
>>21569451Probably the latter since while they haven't gone out of their way to hide Robo Rita, we haven't really seen anything concerning the central villain of the special. I could totally see them hyping up Rita's return only to pull the reveal near the end.
>>21569451>>21569709They probably couldn't find an actress who looked enough like Machiko Soga, so made a robot suit in lieu of that.
>>21569791Uhh, anon...?>But Carla's probably gotten old and ugly since 1998IT'S RITA
>>21569453>Real surprised Tsuburaya even allowed it. They usually protect their shit from foreigners to maintain its integrity.Gridman was considered expendable and it did so well as Syber Squad it actually outperformed the Japanese original. But since they wouldn't let them touch Ultraman, that was the end of it.
>>21569835Yeah it's not like Machiko Soga was particularly young in the first place. She was like 53 when she played Bandora/Rita. She had Asian tier aging genes admittedly as she looks almost exactly the same in all 3 of her evil Queen roles in Toku despite 13 years passing between Denziman to Zyuranger. Hell get Ami Kawai (Scorpina) to play her. She still looks moderately attractive for her age and probably remembers Machiko well enough to emulate her role.
Man, Once & Always just keeps being a rollercoaster for me. At first I have no ibterest, but then feeling it might be good and look forward to it, and now for some reason back to skepticism.
Looking back what was his issue?
>>21570431Honestly the novelty of seeing some of these people back in an MMPR focused story 30 years later pretty much outweighs any concern I have.The story and other parts could be absolute dogshit and I'm keeping my expectations measured in that regard, but all I really care to see is how these old veterans are doing after all this time, it can only really fail in my book if they give them two or three lines like they did with most of the veterans in Dimensions in Danger, which seems impossible.
>>21570535Alzheimer's? All the Megaforce cast and crew who had shit to fling at the production never used it to shit on Tzachor as a person even though he was a major source for all those production issues. Maybe they all found out about his condition and felt bad.
>>21570895the OG cast members all only ever have positive things to say about him. which makes it a shame that he doesn't talk to the media. since his point of view would be valuable.
>>21570895According to Amit, Tzachor had no idea what Forever Red was. Though Amit's a chronic liar, and even if he was telling the truth, FR was ultimately just one episode among hundreds to the rest of the production staff. It's beloved by the fans, but it didn't exactly break the ratings or convince Disney that Amit was worth hiring.
>>21571766>FR was ultimately just one episode among hundreds to the rest of the production staff.I mean, on one hand, yeah, on the other hand... it was the 10 year anniversary episode with ten Red Rangers in it. You'd think that'd stick out among the endless "insert Sentai footage of Rangers fighting ___ monster" episodes.
>>21571782In a recent interview on that Power Rangers Playback channel by Sutherland and Burrise, ASJ asked why Lauren from Samurai wasn't in Forever Red. Either he has brain damage, or FR meant so little to him that he forgot what year it was made if he was curious why a character who debuted in 2012 didn't show up in a 2002 episode. It honestly seems like Amit was the only part of the cast and crew who thought the episode was an important memory.
For Amit, the day Forever Red started production was the most important day of his life. But for the crew, it was Tuesday.
>>21571999>>21571997>when you're the hasbeen of hasbeensWho'd be lower than Amit?
Nobody on the staff remembering Forever Red explains why nobody there told Guzelian there was already a villain named Venjix.>>21572002TJ Roberts of course. At least we know Amit's still alive.
>>21571999Reminds me when Higgins said some people literally measure success based on what characters or franchises you worked on
I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I like the comics because of the OC rangers. I'm autistic about ranger OCs.
>>21572038I like them too but I can get where the gripes come fromThe Omegas getting their own ongoing was for the best but forcing it all together with the MMPR made me groan when I first found out I don't hate Matt as much as others but again, I can see where the distaste stems from when Adam still hasn't had much going for him and my mindset on him has been enjoying what's there while knowing it'd be best when he inevitably loses his powersThe Solar Rangers I feel nothing towardPsycho Green is a waste since hardly anyone agrees of how to handle himThe Legendary Squadron in PRU reeks of wasted potential and really bad continuity managementDrakkon is alright in my book but needs a lengthy break from even a mention and the Ranger Slayer is cool and I wouldn't mind seeing more Sentries
>>21572006We know TJ became a bike messenger at some pointI think the first Jo actress is the one lead Saban Ameritoku actor we don't know shit about
>>21571997It's like a combination of Austin having done so much it kind of blurs together and Austin not really following the franchise that strongly to know which season was what year. He remembers he came back for an episode with all the other Reds at one point and knows that one of the seasons had a temporary female Red and but doesn't know the specifics of the years to know what season she was from and what year.
>>21572168Real swing and a miss of him though if he wanted to team up with Kimberley Crossman but thought she was a decade older than she actually is.
Name this team.
>>21572024I think he was saying that in reference to the comics industry but with the state of pop culture as a whole I'd wonder if it translates than I remember most writers on franchise shows hate the material they work with so probably not.>>21572168I think people tell them things and he just makes up the context. It's like his comments about his sentai counterpart. Somebody told him his title is "Kingranger" so he assumes he's the king of all rangers and that it translates into his own status when it's really more of a pun name.
>>21571766Amit himself posted detailed notes and such about how "Forever Red" came to be, and Tzachor played a big role. Maybe he forgot about it 10 years later given how many hundreds of episodes he produced, but at the time he was certainly very involved in it's conception.
Here's your Robo Rita boys.
>>21572796Seems really lazy.Also, is Robo Rita going to have a connection to the Machine Empire?I honestly feel like Scorpina should’ve been the main villain. Turns out she managed to obtain Rita’s staff and is trying to make her own empire from scratch.
>>21572796fake and gay, using the robot batman funko as basis for the edit
>To celebrate the monumental 30th Anniversary of the hugely influential Mighty Morphin Power Rangers franchise, writer Adam Cesare (Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal), and Mighty Morphin artist Moisés Hidalgo (Dark Blood), along with colorist Arthur Hesli (Heavy Metal Magazine), and letterer Ed Dukeshire (Irredeemable) enter the Grid this summer with POWER RANGER UNLIMITED: THE COINLESS–a new 40-page one-shot from BOOM! Studios, available June 2023.>“I got to work in the world of the Power Rangers once before, a short story way back during Shattered Grid, and I’ve wanted back in ever since. And to get to help tell this story? Drakkon assembling a new team of rangers? And the Coinless world is super messed up so the storytelling’s coloring with shades of George Romero and Mad Max? And Moisés Freakin’ Hidalgo? Come on. This is incredible,” said Cesare.>“Coming back to work with Power Rangers and Boom! Studios is such a special thing for me. As another Chilean (Pedro Pascal) says ‘This is the way.’ Adam´s scripts are really fantastic, and it’s a joy to draw each page. We are all doing our best work for all fans of the Power Rangers universe,” said Hidalgo.>“Bringing back Adam to write this horror-infused Power Rangers one-shot was a no-brainer. Seeing his vision come to life with the incredible art from Moisés is a treat for every Power Rangers fan, and is a story I’m incredibly proud of,” said editor Allyson Gronowitz.https://www.boom-studios.com/archives/power-rangers-unlimited-the-coinless-announcement/Call to Darkness isn't a graphic novel, it's description got updated to say it's collecting this and more
>>21573386Oh hey Kiya's therePart me of hopes this is a red herring since I wouldn't like that line-up to be called the "Drakkon Rangers", I know they're desperate with no powers and Drakkon's a petty asshole to name the team that but I think it'd be more interesting if it was Conner, Ethan, and Kira
>>21570905Because he actually tried to make a good product back then. Samurai and Megaforce were pretty much translations with no understanding about anything in the source material. Even some of the Megaforce cast was vocal about their show sucking.
I hope they bring back the sudarso brothers at some point so I can justify following them on twitter.I'm starting to feel a little gay from all the thirst traps
>>21573501Sudarsos are overrated. Though I would love an official Hyperforce animation, just recently got into Vox Machina and while I never saw the original tabletop I can imagine what a Hyperforce animated series would be.
>>21573501We’re all a little gay, anon. We’re on a Malaysian squid fishing forum talking about Power Rangers.
>>21573541Speak for yourself I'm fully gay.
>>21572068>Drakkob needs a lengthy break from even a mention >>21573386lol
>>21572796So, wait, Funko still has the rights to PR, or at least MMPR? Why did they stop making Pops, then? I still want Pops of Rito, Ninjor, Bulk & Skull, Finster, Squatt & Baboo, etc.
>>21573587I was already aware it was comingWe've known about the tpb release for a month nowI'm just saying when he inevitably gets killed/removed again, he should fuck off for yearsYou can't convincingly permakill him at this point
>>21572780>Amit himselfYeah, himself. My point is that nobody else in the crew seems to look at it as anything more another work week.
>>21573406>Conner, Ethan, and Kira>no corrupted alternate reality Dino Thunder team mentored by DrakkonIt's such an obvious turn but it requires them to think beyond MMPR or their own established(and incredibly flimsy) lore so they'd never take it.
>>21573386do you think the artist is going to beg to fix Drakkon's suit so he doesn't have to draw those details every single time?
>>21574270>beyond MMPRThey did during Drakkon's New DawnIt wasn't good
>>21573386I legit thought Scorpina was Wonder Woman at first. Fuck Boom's redesigned outfit for her.
>>21574358i mean it was still largely MMPR focused since the main twist was revealing Jason was still alive, but fine "beyond the Zordon era".
>>21574276I'd be more surprised if he didn't, but it's easy enough to cheat around.>Show Drakkon in full once or twice>Batman it up by having his cape draped around him the majority of the time>Only fights in long distance shots
>>21574597The writer wants to include horror elements in this, close-ups are pretty much necessary Even Drakkon was framed like a slasher monster in the Shattered Grid short comic he contributed to
>>21573386So I guess the Omegas are gonna bust out Kiya and put her on parole as an additional team spare team member (granted they don't have a morpher lying around for her) and then she chases after Drakkon which segways into this then
>>21574682I'm still waiting for the inevitable Omega Pink.
>>21574699It'd be Silver at best where they're powered by the moon (which I never understand how that works as an element) to keep up with the Alchemy theme
>>21574682That is unless this cover is a deliberate red herring and she's just there to make it color-coordinated (we never saw Coinless Billy)Which yeah is a total copeI expect at least ONE person to die to set up stake and that might just be Finster-5
>>21574721But anon, there's a Fifth Element. Or it'll be some shit like aether cause mythical shit.
>>21574758Isn't the fifth element sex
>>21574760Honestly I haven't seen the movie since it came out but what little I remember implied it either to be love or life I think.
>>21572168>>21572763Don't talk shit bitch they call me King Tyranno in Japan... no, wait, they call me Prince Tricera in Korea... I mean they call me Queen Ptera in Brazil.
>>21574797>ASJ is the sleepy Joe of /prg/
Ya know even though JDF isn't it, I was kinda hoping Once and Always would feature all 7 MMPR fighting together for the first time.Either the plot says they bring back Tom Oliver (but still in suit and silent or VA) or somehow not-Tommy gives someone else the Green or White powers, which the best candidate would be Adam.
>>21574832They should unironically have brought in Jeffrey Parazzo. Of all the fake shemp VAs we've had I appreciate that he actually tried to imitate JDF in Wormhole.
>>21574835Was that the one who said "NO ONE GETS IN THE CIRCLE" ?
>>21574832>I was kinda hoping Once and Always would feature all 7 MMPR fighting together for the first time.Unless O&A does it, it honestly is kinda shocking this has never happened before, the worst offender of course being Return of the Green Ranger in Season 2.
>>21574850We've only seen 6 Rangers based on behind the scenes, with white nowhere being found unless they're planning for a suprise which I doubt. Would suck though, having 7 MMPR Rangers at the same time even without all the actors is the dream.
Once and always is a stealth pilot to see if adults are interested in PRhttps://www.youtube.com/live/O8NuaQCkVfY?feature=share&t=11578
Do AJJ and ASJ have beef irl?I'm sorta just now catching up on power rangers for the first time snce i was a kid, literally a 30 year gap lol, and i can't see any videos or any evidence of them interacting with each other or even mentioning each other. There's plenty of evidence of them interacting with and talking about other rangers whether their fellow ogs or even ones that came later, but they don't seem to even acknowledge each other's existence.
>>21570105Actually it's because Ultraman by that point was somewhat recognizable in America, so doing an adaptation like PR was out of the question. Plus don't forget TsuPro patented a tech that would have made it super easy to swap Japanese actors for American ones only to never use it. And that's also not getting into the legal stuff that the franchise was going through.
>>21575466>Plus don't forget TsuPro patented a tech that would have made it super easy to swap Japanese actors for American ones only to never use it.Seriously? Sauce on this?Why doesn't TsuPro just sub-license it to Toei so that sentai just gets a palette swap?
>>21575465walter and asj both feel they were backstabed by the rest of the cast that stayed. They were in contract negotiations to get raises, and then amy jdf and billy made a side deal to stay.
>>21575501I mean, I can't exactly blame either side. Amy and Yost had to look out for their own careers. JDF was a real mercenary and lapdog for Saban so no surprise there. Walter, Thuy, and ASJ should've realized that nobody is irreplaceable in Hollywood. Yes they were the stars of a hit show that stapled together footage and props from Japan, but they were just the accessories. Kids just care about the action scenes and Zord battles with giant monsters, not the actual actors.
>>21575506jdf apparently had a kid and another on the way at the time, you cant expect him to drop his job with nothing to provide for his family. Also, not defending saban, but they all signed those contracts willingly, they weren't forced to.
>>21575506saban called them helmet heads
>>21575513I know and Saban showered him with money, allowing him to stay in his mansion, and promises of more roles. Very few people could resist that. As for the contracts, well, no offense to the MMPR cast, but they could've made more working at a regular job than the wages that cunt offered with the long hours and difficult conditions.
>>21575516He also called sentai "Five retards in spandex". This is why I can never give a shit about PR when it's just some greedy fuck.
>>21575501>walter and asj both feel they were backstabed by the rest of the cast that stayed.I know, but there's evidence of ASJ and Walter interacting with Yost, and being very friendly and cordial. And there's Yost and AJJ and JDF sharing kind words in tribute to TT. Even a little online interaction between Walter and AJJ. And at the movie premiere the 4 og guys including ASJ and JDF being cordial and posing together on the red carpet. But nothing between ASJ and AJJ, total freeze. AJJ was even at the premiere too obv, but she didn't pose with the 4 guys, only sat and watched the movie with JDF later.
>>21575527Yost always had nothing but good things to say about ASJ and Walter compared to the annoyance he had with JDF. No, JDF was not the anti-gay bully, he just got irritated with JDF playing pranks. And everyone loved Thuy. She was a real sweetheart from what I heard. As for AJJ, not sure if she has a beef with ASJ, but she really tried to move as far away from PR when her career branched off into more mainstream stuff like Killing Mr. Griffin, Suzie Q, and especially Felicity. Can't say I blame her from wanting to distance from PR.
>>21575498There's a gif that /m78/ often posts that's directly from a TsuPro marketing meaning
>>21575524>Five retards in spandexHave you actually paid attention to some of the subjects Miss Applebee was teaching in her classes? He might've been meaning that literally.
>>21575751Whether literal or figurative, that's a very disrespectful comment on another country's pop culture that he's making money off of.
>>21575783It's a toy commercial not a cultural Japanese treasure. Get over yourself.
>>21575452>>21575453Not a good way to do it. Once and Always will lure in the guys who watched MMPR back in the day, but those people already consume PR product in the first place. Nothing about it looks like it will appeal to the adults who passed on PR back when they were kids, or the adults who weren't alive when MMPRmania happened.
>>21575861Unfortunately, 2017 was their one chance to recapture that and they shit the bed bad.
>>21575540>Suzie QI loved that movie as a kid.
>>21575783I took that to be a flip denigration of his own production, given the amount of financial success he shared with the actors. Full quote from the New Yorker for those who hadn't seen if before:>After two years of construction, Matthew Krane recalled, he met Saban for a tour of the house. Krane had left the Pollock firm in 1992, and was working from his house in the Hollywood Hills. Saban was his biggest client, and Krane had become Saban’s trusted financial and legal adviser, involved in structuring and implementing major transactions; later, he also became the co-executor of Saban’s estate. Krane had seen the house as it took shape, but he was dazzled as Saban led him from room to room. Saban seemed to have some trouble finding his way around, and after he discovered a back stairway for the first time he turned toward Krane, gave a shrug, and said, “Five retards in spandex.”https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2010/05/10/the-influencer>>21575452>>21575453>>21575861What makes this guy's theory crafting any more valid than any other forum dweller online?
>>21575498>>21575566And if you don't believe the pichttps://www.scifijapan.com/ultraman-tsuburaya/tsuburaya-pro-unveils-new-visual-translation-system
>>21572330Pink looking hella thicc.
>>21575954hes an investigator that did a series on jdfs death. Other pr actors have shared his videos, and he said he talks to them
>>21576570>Other pr actors have shared his videos,Which ones?
>>21576570But how does that make his theory credible? You're not going to convince normal adults that PR is worth watching again by showing them actors who haven't been on TV in 25 years fighting Putties. You'll convince the fanboys, but they'll watch it regardless.
>>21575861>Nothing about it looks like it will appeal to the adults who passed on PR back when they were kids, or the adults who weren't alive when MMPRmania happened.I guess that's why I'm back to being skeptical about it, because it's going to feel exactly like MMPR which I'm not into.
>>21577510>because it's going to feel exactly like MMPR which I'm not into.the trailers have it coming across as another overly nostalgic product that have been shit out since the 2010s. Doesn't help that MMPR is way too trite to pull of any pathos. Yeah I'm totally sentimental for the Radbug guys...
21577369Nakia, cat , & faunt>>21577453He talked to jdfs assistant, who said pretty much the same thing that bat in the sun said regarding the special
>>21568942Is Anubis Cruger coming back to be the North American Ookami Blue?
>>21569346Why no Yellow? I know Trini's actress died a long time ago but there were other Yellow actresses, wheren't there?
I know rocky was never a leader, but it's weird to see red on the side, I guess billy is in charge
>>21578081Her daughter is the new yellow ranger and they probably don't want to put her there to spoil it but especially confusing people by thinking Trini is backAisha is back but probably doesn't morph so they might not want people to think its her. Idk
>>21578142>red on the sideWelcome to Rocky's entire career as MMPR Red.
>>21578243I'm incredibly curious about Aisha and Adam in SPA.
>>21578081>>21578550I'm fine with Blue/Billy being the "leader" on the poster, but it's weird that Red is all the way in the corner, even if it is Rocky. Pink being so prominent would make sense if it was Kimberly, but it's just Kat, so you'd think they'd make Red a bit more prominent.
>>21578073Sadly no. All they're using from Kyuranger is the mecha footage.
>>21578550I’ll never get over how much they look like Ku Klux Klan robes.
>>21573386>>21573406>>21574270I just want a Dr O vs Drakkon storyline damn it
What became of him after Countdown to Destruction?
>>21578984Presumably just goes around the Universe righting wrongs and helping other Rangers
>>21578984>>21579145Occasionally hooking up with Cassie as she goes around doing space things.
JDF apparently hated playing Lord Drakken: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lr3rwNW_xpE
>>21579206How does a being of pure morphing grid energy have sex?
>>21579207Seems pretty legit in his reasoning. I can imagine it would be frustrating dealing with things even before Hasbro owned the brand.
>>21578006How does JDF's assistant make the theory any credible?
>>21579520Cause she's his assistant/friend. She was involved with Jdfs business
>>21579316he has fingers doesn't he?
kinda weird how many photos of the original princess shayla actress on set there are. must have really been an 11th hour replacement.
>>21579316Anywhere he wants! ...no, wait...
did dustin always have the body of a svelte teen girl
>>21579207We discussed the problems with Aaron's claim about the pitch to Saban & Boom since he said it was done a decade ago which was before Boom even had the license Even if you want to argue it was faulty memory evil Rangers with a red visor isn't new at all, it's been done since 2003That and evil universe counterparts are a common trope as-is and the apparent proto-Drakkon Aaron showed wasn't even a hybrid
>>21579534No, how does that make the theory that Once and Always is meant to appeal to adults more credible?
>>21577810>Doesn't help that MMPR is way too trite to pull of any pathos. Yeah I'm totally sentimental for the Radbug guys...Yeah. This feels only a little more dignified than if next year, whoever owns the rights made a Tattooed Teenaged Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills 30th anniversary reunion special, that expected a normal person to get hyped to see Gorganus and Knightron for the first time in decades.
>>21579207It does sound a little more plausible than before, but Aaron really hurt their argument by acting hysterical on social media.>>21579601Yeah, I can understand getting details mixed up given the circumstances, but "Saban/Hasbro blueballed us for years then tried to pitch our own fan film plot to us" is way different than "they've been mining our pitches for material for a decade".And again, I don't care what kind of NDAs they may have had, if JDF really felt he was getting ripped off, he would've hinted at it during one of his tantrums. Not to say that absolves Hasbro of any wrongdoing, but Adam's definitely blowing the situation out of proportion.
So how well do you think the MMPR method with original suit footage and stock zord footage will work this time around?
dead thread for a dead franchise
>>21580846I don't know. Maybe it'll be fine if they have all the monster suits they need for the ground fights, instead of just some like season 2, but the ranger suits just plain don't look good on film, and they don't even look like they have decent mobility either.
>>21580856Really sullying the US's rep on suit design. Especially since these will be season long. But not everyone can be the Titanium ranger I guess.
>>21580871I'm pretty sure the budget to create each individual suit for Cosmic Fury was much higher than the titanium rangers, even if we take into account inflation. what's lacking is was not money but creativity and imagination.. or dare I say soul..
>>21580912It seems like more than anything that they're trying to avoid spandex or even pleather. Huge mistake.
>>21580912It's really an issue of original concept. The titanium ranger has the beauty of being a 6th ranger for a team that didn't have one. You have a base to go off and plenty of things in the season to use for inspiration like having the max solarzord M on the helmet. Cosmic just feels flawed from the start. I think the big one is too much open chest space, no logo or stripes to break it up. Also those shoulder pads are just a mess, save that stuff for the 6th not the whole team.
>>21579607did you watch the video or read the initial post? its not being made to appeal to adults, its a test to see if adults are interested.
>>21580871>>21580938Everytime Hasbro makes a Lightning Collection of a Boom OC or pop culture crossover over the Titanium Ranger my soul hurts.
>>21580856Japanese porn parody sentai suits look better
>>21580912It's kinda strange how weird the cosmic fury suits look. Cosplayers with much lower budgets, while their suits don't look high quality, usually design striking designs that can be easily mistaken as real.The Cosmic Fury suits look like original designs for rangers from an old comic or something. Not terrible, but could've looked much better.
>>21580871Ryan’s origin didn’t really make sense, but man was he awesome. His debut whooping 3 major demons was so good.
>>21578243>Her daughterShe had kids? Then who rasied then when she died? Her husband?
>>21581079I enjoy his role in the story as well being the guy who's looking to deal with the demons while the main team focuses on keeping them at bay. A good way to deal with the limitations of footage while keeping him involved.
>>21581089Talking about the character, not the actress.
>>21581248That makes more sense.
>>21578142>>21578550>>21578599If we’re just talking about character development, Billy and Zach make the most sense to be the leaders, though I’d say Billy edges out purely by tenure and successes. Rocky was such a not-leader that sometimes it felt like Billy and Adam were in charge when Tommy wasn’t there during MMPR. Then in Zeo Rocky felt even more like a side Ranger, though better developed than when he was red.Zach is charismatic enough to take the lead, but Billy’s been around too long.
alleged plot leak for once and alwayshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iN33O7XWv9M
>>21581359And wasn't Billy "leader" when all the other Rangers were kids?>>21581367It's in less than a month, I think I'm good to wait, if you guys talk about it, spoiler tags please.
>>21581367tldr or GTFO
>>21581006Anon, what about this looks like it will interest adults who aren't already PR fans?
>>21581448i always wished they did a reaction ot the gameinformer article that goes into all the weird things george lucas did and said while interfering with lucasarts games. "Darth Icky"
>>21581359>Rocky was such a not-leaderHe was never supposed to be the leader anyway so I don’t understand why people hold it against him.
>>21580871Fuck I wasn't even thinking of Titanium Ranger when I made that reply but yeah the cosmic fury suits don't hold a candle to it, or the spirit rangers for that matter, or even the toy exclusive RPM suits...>>21580938>You have a base to go off and plenty of things in the season to use for inspirationarguably so do the cosmic fury suits between them being upgrades on the previous Dino Fury suits(they have the same helmets) or even the Kyuranger mecha they're planning on using.>>21581010it's such a shame the first American original ranger gets no respect from the franchise. Lightspeed is a solid season too. It's not a masterpiece or the greatest season but it's honestly the ideal that any season should aim to be at the least.
>>21581603>it's such a shame the first American original ranger gets no respect from the franchise.Yeah, with as much as the series whores out the first American original villain, you'd think they'd do the same for the first American original Ranger. It's weird there's not more Titanium merch, at the very least.
… so the comics have gay lesbian space furries? These people just can’t help themselves can they? TMNT is a furry soap opera now, and Power Rangers sounds like it’s going the way of the Transformers comics.
>>21581640>… so the comics have gay lesbian space furries?If you're talking about the Solar RangersJust lesbian aliensNot furries They've been present since 2017 or 2018 and hardly show up in the grand scheme of thingsThey were literally relevant ONCE after their initial arcEven the show has a lesbian with Izzy and the movie made Trini gay
>>21581662I am so glad I stopped at Dino Thunder.
>>21581672It's fucking Power Rangers, it was inevitable
>>21581672>stopped at Dino Thunder to avoid space furries
>>21581640Wait a fucking sec, are you talking about the pic in the OP?JFC, it's literally just Cruger's wife and Raptor from Kyuranger for some reason
>>21581683“Lesbian” space furries. Lesbians are the safest way to appeal to the mass media and score some free marketing. Progressives will circle jerk em, and coomers will defend them to the death. It’s lazy.But I guess it doesn’t really matter. I was just sorta looking around to see if I’d want to get into any of the more modern PR media and decided against it. Like the other anon said, it was inevitable anyways, and I just don’t want to support that stuff so oh well. Back to my other toku.
>>21581640>>21581695You're screaming about something that isn't even in PR, you retard.
>>21581672Sloan and Marchand said Hayley, Tommy's assistant in PR, was a lesbian.
>>21581697Not screaming, just not interested in entertainment that caters to “that” audience. I’ll probably cut out of the thread here though as I don’t want to derail it. I should have personally known better anyways as there really isn’t any major western IP that they haven’t tried to force LGBT content in.
>>21581705>Not screaming, just not interested in entertainment that caters to “that” audience.Anon...https://kamenrider.fandom.com/wiki/Category:LGBThttps://powerrangers.fandom.com/wiki/Sonoshi#Notes>According to the production notes, Sonoshi is identified as "neither a lady or an effeminate man", confirming that they are non-binary.https://powerrangers.fandom.com/wiki/Iyo_Kodera
If you're watching toku, a genre where effeminate men dress up in tight brightly-colored spandex and pose, and get shocked that it occasionally gets gay, you played yourself.
>>21581705You saw a picture of two female characters next to each other, one of whom we know is married to a male, and instantly assumed it was lesbian propaganda. You're screaming.
>>21581711I drop any show that has it, just with the west there’s more of a malicious intent behind it. With Japanese entertainment it’s usually done due to the directors perversion or comedic purposes in mind, but I still don’t agree with it. Perhaps they are trying to influence kids as much as western entertainment, either way I pretty much only stick to the older stuff. I was just disappointed to see PR had done it on numerous occasions with the comics looking the most poz.>>21581720Your minds in the gutter son.>>21581731… you may want to go back and reread the posts. I think you think I was commenting on the op pic?
>>21581711Both of those sentai examples are played for comedy. Comedy gays have been a thing in Japanese culture since basically forever.
>>21581743You randomly brought up "gay lesbian space furries" when all the anons who replied to you said that wasn't the case and asked what you were talking about.
>>21581743>the westAnon, quit acting like Japan isn't full of queers.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1utDiVEtyw
>>21581746No, I thought I clarified right from the get go I was talking about the comics. The other anon got it. I really didn’t want to derail the thread. I was just disappointed and didn’t know if anyone else shared it. Since not I was just gonna leave.
>>21581711>sentai gay are a literal murdering villain and a celeb stalkerbased japs
>>21581743>Your minds in the gutter son.Ultraman's about a guy who has to expand in size to wrestle one-eyed monsters. That's pretty gay.
>>21581760Not really? Unless you think wrestling is inherently gay. You should've just said that a space man goes inside of another man, THEN he expands. Now THAT is gay.
>>21581748Most of those examples are newer which is what I expected, but that’s still kinda unsettling. I think I’m gonna need to pray about continuing to watch newer toku. I didn’t realize this element was so prevalent in some of the newer shows.
>>21581748Fujo bait is hardly a good example since it's just to get degenerate middle aged virgin women hot and bothered.
>>21581748What a boatload of nothing. It's all BL movies/shows or BL baiting (all shit aimed at lonely female yaoi fans). Only tranny shit is Jun Shison in that one drama.
>>21581805What it’s going to come down to for me is: were these actors roles and lifestyles revealed before their toku career or after? Knowingly hiring people like this for your kids shows isn’t right, but if it was after their career took off then what can you do?
>>21581827>Knowingly hiring people like this for your kids shows isn’t rightSentai's hired porn stars before. Kamen Rider Blade was led by a guy who did gay porn. Quit pretending this is new.
>>21581827Inoue, the writer of Donbrothers wrote that episode of Dirty Pair defending trannies.https://twitter.com/incineroarings/status/1634986954763960322https://dirtypair.fandom.com/wiki/Love_is_Everything._Risk_Your_Life_to_Elope!!
>>21581827It's just acting anon. They're not gay. When you're a new actor getting paid peanuts and your entire life is controlled by your agency, you take whatever roles you are given. 80% of the works from that video were just before or after their toku jobs, so they weren't given the opportunity to be choosey.
>>21581837I’m telling you, I’m finding out a lot about this as it’s being shared. Giving me a lot to think about. I’ve cut out a lot of degenerate media from my life and haven’t regretted it one bit. Some were vidya and anime I really liked. When the shows age group goes up, then I’m less judgmental about the people involved as the content of the show can speak for itself, but when it’s entertainment directed at kids, I don’t like that. Not pushing that on anyone else, just speaking for myself as it has done me a lot of tangible good guarding my heart and mind.>>21581850Right, it mostly comes down to it being content directed for little kids (for the most part). Like I said, gonna do some praying tonight and see what I get. and again, sorry the thread got derailed so bad. I really didn’t want that to happen. It has given me a lot to think about though.
>>21581837That was after Blade and it was a scandal at the time.
>>21580856You know, they could've made the weapons based on the Kyuranger zords so that it would made more sense.>>21580871>>21581102>>21581603Watching Lightspeed recently, I feel like they could've had him hang around with the team more, especiqlly since there are times when they still use original footage. It really sucks how limited Titanium Ranger suit appears, even worse when Neo-Saban and Hasbro refuse to take advantage of him. Like if I'm in charge I would've pushed for more Titanium appearances, even have solo comic of him and such.
>>21582451>Not a female ranger>Not MMPRNgmi
https://twitter.com/fishertheband/status/1638002890416734208?s=20Hasn't been brought up yet here, but Ron Wasserman composed Once & Always.
>>21581760>one-eyed monstersNot a single one of OG Ultraman’s enemies had one eye. The projection is embarrassing.
>>21580871Titanium wasn't a US suit design nor were Jungle Fury's Spirit Rangers. They were all designed by Plex. Whenever a suit is truly designed by Americans it is inherently shit. >>21581603>the first American original ranger gets no respectHe gets plenty of respect. He was one of the few Rangers to get a Super Legends figure, and he got a Super Megaforce Action Hero figure when not all the 6ths did. That Super Megaforce figure was re-released in a ten-pack during Dino Super Charge, and was scheduled to be re-re-released in a two-pack during Super Ninja Steel until Bandai lost the license and stopped trying. Lightspeed Rescue's popularity is mid-tier, which is why it wasn't tackled in the Legacy line before it died, and why the Lightning Collection is only getting to it now. His actor didn't appear in "Legendary Battle" but his suit was in the US footage team shot on the cliff, and he was pretty prominently shown behind his sister on the ground. He was going to appear in "Dimensions in Danger" at one point as well, but plans changed.
Alpha five wasn't the only robot assistant the rangers had.Across the universe, the other ranger teams also had their robot assistant
>>21582856Looks like Zordon had placed these robots assistance in many of the rangers team, to help the teenage warriors
>>21582856>>21582864One team even had a fembot as their assistant/friend
>>21581504It’s not about holding it against him, it’s that Billy makes more sense as leader.
>>21581102His solo stuff was a highlight of LR.
>>21581367If Zordon being revived is true I’m probably going to hate it.
>>21582936I just love the way Titanium Ranger fights. So aggressive martial arts.
>>21582864Remember Alpha is a holdover of Peebo from the Bio-Man pilot.
>>21582740Ok, now that's actually really cool.
>>21582808>he did get respect>5 years ago and when the brand was under different management I repeat: the Titanium Ranger doesn't get enough respect for being the first Power Rangers original ranger.
>>21583107Hell, he wasn't prominent in Shattered Grid or any part of the comics, still no Lightning Collection, and the only thing he got since Hasbro was just being added to Legacy Wars.
>>21581367>>21582939he fucking won!
>>21582856Considering Xi existed for eons, yeah that wouldn't be surprisingHell, if back-ups were still a thing, I'd love to see a comic of Alpha vising a support group for robot sidekicks (both original and being lifted from pre-Zyu Sentai) and they treat it as a family reunion
>>21580938>I think the big one is too much open chest space,my critique as well.Even just lines to break the color would improve a lot.
>>21583521here, 3000 light years in mspaint.exeTurn it into a stripe and use it for the zipper.Perfect.
>>21582808>Titanium wasn't a US suit design nor were Jungle Fury's Spirit Rangers.The super samurai forms as well, I think my point stands though, really should have gotten them to design the cosmic suits.
>>21583579The suits are OK, but the fabric used makes them so plain looking. It's just like they're wearing a t shirt underneath all that equipment, not something that would give you superpowers.
>>21583579Plex is owned by Bandai and so they aren't an independent design firm. There is no universe where they'd have been contracted for Cosmic Fury.
>>21583592So what I'm getting from this is that Hasbro was a mistake?
>>21583599If you wanted original designs, sure.
>>21582808>He was going to appear in "Dimensions in Danger" at one point as well, but plans changed.I'll never not be salty that he, Phantom, Shadow, and Ninjor got cut out of that episode.
>>21582790Where did I say "OG", anon?
>flunk out of the academy >get to work with her all day Was it a major loss?
>>21582740You think he's sticking around now that Saban's gone?
Where does A Squad fall on the original design scale?
>>21583592>>21583599>>21583625The problem is that Hasbro lacks design bibles and doesn't understand the design philosophies Japan hasThey used a cosplay pic of Jack when presenting the rough draft of his Lightning Collection figureAs much as I like the Omegas and Dimension X Turtle Rangers, the uniform visors is a glaring flaw, even the fucking porn parody designs in this thread understood that Sentai Rangers aren't palette swaps It's like why even some good Fakemon designs have an uncanny feel despite replicating Sugimori's design perfectly at first glance
>>21583941Legit good but the recycled helmets hold them backThey look great for villains but not for heroic Rangers, I see them the same way I see Ranger Sentries without any reason why they're using the In Space helmets
>>21583910>One monster from LeoBoy anon, you sure got me. You really are reaching, dude.Freud would love you.
>>21583941Pretty crap, but the good idea outweighs the design.
>>21583951You know that reminds me did we ever get an explanation for the Space ranger powers? I them and Turbo were the only ones from the Zordon era without it.
>>21583961They're the default powers of same alien planet and were passed from team to teamThat's about it
>>21583971Yeah sounds about right. Odds are the Turbo powers are just as mundane. If only Ninjor didn't just disappear from the plot entirely.
>>21582790A couple are birds so he’s definitely choking a chicken.
>>21583996shoulda just left it at >>21581764
>>21583530I'd do it like this>silver layer under the shoulder pads, parallel with the waist triangles (the mismatched angles look weird)>mirror the waist triangles horizontally and also have them mirrored below the belt on all rangers, not just Amelia >get rid of the MMPR bolts because this team has nothing to do with Zordon>if they won't give Izzy a skirt, don't give one to Amelia either>get rid of Javi's armoured arm, but maybe give similarly styled additional armour to Zayto?>obviously swap out the helmets, morphers and weapons for something better fitting the space/animal themeMight be too much silver though.
>>21581749>>21581764>>21581777>>21581855The way you use spoiler tags is annoying as shit. Stop it.Have fun praying about children's television, that's really gonna change the world.>>21583940Inclined to believe this is a one time thing, but who knows, on Twitter he's keen on saying "that's all I can say for now", which can mean anything.
>>21575453Who the fuck is this dude and how would he know?
>>21583941Despite how obviously cobbled together the A-Squad suits are, my only major problem with them are the black undersuits. Swap those out for coloured ones and they could pass as a main ranger team.
>>21581013>>21581029>>21581035It's an open secret that they (Giga) use the same designers as Plex/Toei/Bandai.

>>21584409No more D-word
>>21584409>>21584421>>21584429This is a fuckin frame, man.
>>21584195I think they work fine as a power up mode, but it's odd to look at them as base suits.
>>21584409>Megazord confirmedOkay, I'm interested >>21584444At least it's not a car crash
>>21584409Rocky gets zero respect
Here's Minotaur and Bryan Cranston
>>21583954I love reaching for my one eyed monster
Here are the Dino Zords
Here's the Megazord
>>21584479Better than Toei's CG at least.>>21584483Although the Megazord shot looks worse than that one.
>>21584467Lol>>21584479Eyes look weird on T-Rex Zord, and weird toy quality in general>>21584483CGI was iffy. But not really here to nitpick on visuals, I got excited.
>>21583941Shit. They're just recycled helmets and paintball gear. But they're evil Rangers who became evil because they wanted to, so the novelty outweighs that.
>>21584488I think they used toys as reference and not the actual suitsAgain, Hasbro lacks a design bible
>>21584409Netflix took it down for some reason, here it is on Twitter: https://twitter.com/KRSentai/status/1638364104686465027?s=20>>21584491Guess it was a tall order to make new full sized props. Oh well. We're probably only gonna see them in those few shots.
>>21584513Robo-Rita is cheap as hell but the monsters actually look greatDoes the Once & Always ate Cosmic Fury's budget theory still line up?
>>21584226Source? I've never heard that.
>>21584409>https://fb.watch/jq7XaHJoDT/Why is this link not working for me?
>>21584525They took it down for some reason, maybe they uploaded it too early, see here for link: >>21584513
>>21584409>>21584421>>21584429I love these guys but I don't believe they would still be raners and not have found replacements
>>21584536Isn't the Power Rangers Earth more doomed now than it was back in the early 90s if Rangers are unable to fully retire even though they keep forming new teams of Rangers every other year?
they should have brought back her generals,
>>21584536Assuming it works like Sentai/Rider morphing reverts someone to physical prime, so age is no longer a factor so long as they want to keep fighting. With all the various Ranger teams being created they probably figured it was easier to just let the old guard keep their powers and rely on New teams to give them breaks.
>>21584479>>21584483We have come a long-ass way
>>21584491Don't they have the right to get a copy of stuff like that as per their contract?
>>21584486>>21584488>>21584483Looks not great. Honestly they could have just borrowed the suit if they really needed a Zord scene. It was still in good enough shape to be used for a minute or so long fight scene only a year and a half ago for Sentai.
>>21584486>Better than Toei's CG at leastThe movements are awful. It's better rendered, but this is a single special vs Toei having to shit out an episode every week year round.
>Tommy is present when Rita kills Trini>JDF isn't in the special so Tommy presumably doesn't help the other Rangers avenge his fallen teammateHow the fuck are they going to explain this?
>>21584486>Better than Toei's CG at leastThis is current Toei CGI.
>>21584607I don't think either side cares outside of a few exceptionsPeople question why Power Rangers or other Ameritoku are the way it is and simply put, Toei never gave translated episodes so a lot of context ended up lost IIRC John Warden or someone else made sure the person designing Finster's toy to use the Sentai Monster book as reference
>>21584621Apparently he gets captured off-screen
>>21584622For the first couple episodes because they need to sell it. It will decrease before long like they've done before.
>>21584622that zoom in before the punch is really cool
>>21584626At least it's true to form for Green Ranger Tommy to get captured for out of show reasons.
>>21584444I'm sorry but does anybody find it a little odd to put the main emotional focus on an actress who died 2 decades ago?
>>21584611Are the individual Dinozord props still in-tact?
Concerning the voices: Barbara sounds absolutely perfect as Rita. It's like she never left. Holy FUCK is Richard rough as Alpha. I know it's been a long time, but goddamn. And really, not a single 'aye-yi-yi' for the trailer?
>>21584503>Reefside>Coral Harbor>Astro Megaship>>21584621Maybe it's after he gave the dragon coin to JJ
>>21584621>Tommy and Jason reaction to Trini's death is hilarious>Oops, she's dead
>>21584653I doubt it. Toei did remake the Megazord prop around 2012 at least so it's in very good condition.
>>21584660>Holy FUCK is Richard rough as AlphaThat's his normal speaking voice
>>21582884Lynn Minmay from RoboTech/Macross!??!
>>21584622The motion blur is doing a lot of heavy lifting to make this look not as cheap as it probably is. Makes the fight a little harder to follow though.
>>21583530Why do they all have tits. LoL
>>21584681It's just a recognizable Chinese style
>>21584622The city looks like it came right out of Reboot.
>>21584690Focus groupsBurgerland kids love action figures with muscle
>>21584479>>21584483Are they seriously using the ZAP Megazord figures
>>21583961Turbo was explained.Kind of.We saw them get the powers in the movie Zordon and Billy created them because the ZEO powers weren't good or stong enough ( even though ZEO said they powers would grow stronger with time) but the scene was never shown. Considering when Turbo came out and ZEO ended, I believe the scene was shot.We kept getting advertising for a ZEO movie in some comic books before turbo was hinted at.
>>21584165The boots NEED Silver between the Gold stripes.The gauntlets have it, the chest pieces as well
>>21584705I don't see the greeble on the Megazord itself
>Rita comes back; Alpha puts every(?) Ranger team on high alertI can't help but wonder... Do the MMPR know that Zedd is back?
>>21584653Not at all, but they remade the suit about a decade ago and it was still shown to be usable only a year and half or so ago.
so is trini now the american counterpart to bioman yellow
>>21584694Have you watched Reboot lately? You're like the guy who says everything looks like PS2 graphics when a new game doesn't look photorealistic.
>>21584742Yellows died before her actually. In the very first show in fact.
>>21584745inb4 he was talking about THIS Reboot
>>21584745It's a city. Those shouldn't be that hard to make photorealistic unless you're intentionally using 20-year-old computers to create the graphics.
>tommy only show up morphedIf he's still around this would get a major backlash
>>21584746sadly trini joined the family of passed away yellow rangers now
>>21584742How funny would it have been if the Bioman pilot went to series. Would they have cut that episode out of the adaption?
>>21584769Most likely. Or just made it so that she survived. They only killed her in the first place because the original actress walked away suddenly and they needed a last second recast.
>>21584756Why is that color so cursed. It has the most number of dead characters, as well as actors in both series.
imagine if they went meta and had the cast of zyuranger included. it could be like when the 80s turtles show up in an episode of tmnt
>>21584752You underestimate how difficult it is rendering a city on that scale and timetable then if that's your expectation.
>>21584787theres a city builder plugin for that type of shit
>>21584753Hasbro killed JDF
>>21584483it makes me think of Optimus Prime... so I guess there's Hasbro trying to devour this brand.
>>21584793There's a city builder plugin for cyberpunk magitech cities? Tell me all about it.
>>21584622This looks like shit. I can barely tell what's happening outside of the zords wrecking buildings.
>>21584802Citybuilder3dIt even has a cyberpunk style
>>21584409Didn't some guy say she was gonna die in a car accident and posted set pics as "proof"
>>21584728I wonder how they're going to reconcile Robo-Rita with Mystic Mother
>>21584444As sweet as that is, and as unavoidable as it is, I wish they could've used a different picture than a headshot that's widely available when you google her.
>>21582856>>21582864>>21582864Alpha five 's radical, genocidal "older brother ", Alpha one.Original design to be warriors, supporter of justice,who help the rangers, along with his four younger brothers.Alpha one is the strongest and most skilled of all the alpha robot but he went mad and radical.Alpha one wanted to genocide all biological being because he believed they're the source of all the problem of the universe.
>>21584892That's not far-off from the Alpha-1 we do have
>>21584651yea it makes more sense to do it about JDF but they filmed it before that
>>21582884>>21584681>>21584693This friend/assistant robot of her ranger teams has Chinese girl design yes, she's also kind of badass.
>>21584878I get the feeling Robo-Rita is going to be Rita's "evil side/power" inhabiting a new body, that the evil essence known as "Rita Repulsa" has been formless ever since Countdown to Destruction. This way Rita can be back and Mystic Mother is still out there, fighting the good fight. Though why she wouldn't pop in to deal with her former evil self is beyond me.
>>21584920There's a guy under that costume ain't it
>>21581855You are exactly the kind of ignorant shit who gives religious people a bad name.
>>21584779they could cast chamelon green, she can speak english
>>21584409So do you think they'll reference Billy hooking up with an alien? Or really I guess the question is will this be an AU or not. Granted I don't think too much continuity issues arise from this, it's basically been established the MMPR powers have been fixed/fixable for decades now.
>>21585000If the plot leak is real, it's leading right into Cosmic Fury.
>>21584667Someone should edit in this video when the Netflix special gets released. Right when Trini dies, show this clip. It would be a funny prank on unsuspecting viewers.
You think he competes with Hartford?
>>21585019read the thread
>>21585010Well they are putting some effort in there so I do expect it to be referenced then. I do also expect an explanation for robo Rita and the Z-wave since Zedd actually did get that.
Ninjor bros I'm not feeling so good.
So are they gonna explain how Billy returned to Earth after leaving the planet to bang some Aquatar woman?
>>21585052Same way Bulk came back to Earth after leaving the planet to party at Mirinoi.
>>21584920>>21584952in a motorcycle stunt yes. there's always different stunt performers for specialized stunts like that. in ninja steel you can see sarah grow a foot taller immediately after getting on the motorcycle in the motorcycle episode. and there was a guy just for skateboard stunts in dino charge.
>>21584917Considering he died after they finished filming this was never likely, but I'm not even saying it HAS to be about one of the rangers being killed just feels strange for the franchise to suddenly get super sentimental about her 20 years after the fact.
>>21585090Got to make something the emotional beat for an hour-long special. It was either that or Zack or Billy going through a midlife crisis.
>>21585010I wouldn't be surprised if MMPR appears in Cosmic Fury, since they posted pics of both casts hanging out.
>>21584622>9/11 x 100RIP Tokyo
>>21584409>>21584421Those collars aren't sitting right with me. I'm not sure if they're too loose or if it's that they had them on over the sock they wear under the helmet which made them look worse in some shots.>>21584429Was the set CGI?
>>21585148Don't worry, it's isekai cyberpunk tokyo. No fictional nips were harmed in the making of this film.
>>21584746Yet despite that, we still haven't gotten a Fat Yellow despite there being 3 or 4 examples of them in Sentai
>>21585148This honestly already happens all the time in Power Rangers anywaysMILLIONS DEAD
>>21585186It's weird, you'd have thought Power Rangers would've had at least ONE actual fat ranger. We've got diversity of skin color, gender, and gender identity, but all the rangers are still just beautiful young people.
>>21585194Why doesn't pic related happen in Power Rangers? You'd think in a season like Time Force, Mr. Collins would tell Wes something like "My Silver Guardians might ask a tidy sum for security, but at least they don't wreak havoc and let collateral damage happen like your friends and their giant robots".
>>21585226They don't want children to ask questions despite EVERYONE making jokes about the collateral damage already
>>21585211>you'd have thought Power Rangers would've had at least ONE actual fat ranger.Imagine if they just suddenly jumped in at the 11th hour and helped the Rangers against Robo-Rita.
>>21585226Because how are you supposed to handle it? The rangers can learn a lesson that sometimes they need to be pragmatic when dealing with monsters, or learn to take monster fights outside of populated areas, but that won't sync up with the Sentai footage where city fights happen all the time. Having the characters ask why the rangers are okay with letting giant fights happen in cities every week opens a can of worms the show can never address without looking retarded.
Is this the Hyperforce logo?
>Juice Bar shownAre they gonna mention Ernie is dead as well?
>>21585253Didn't they already said he was eaten by an alligator
>>21585251Funny that they're doing this CGI Command Center when literally all they had to do was send a cameraman over to the Brandeis Bardin Campus for like 15 minutes.
#106 spoilerThis is the last page people hyped up on Flores' feed about the surprise revealHuh, so that's how he's gonna compensate without his staff
>>21585238>>fat ranger.Fat rangers did exist , they're just not earth rangers.
>>21585274Bad CGI is cheaper
>>21585151>Was the set CGI?Doubt it
Oh, for the love of... They fucked up the Putties' heads. They put the rear hood on OVER the face mask, instead of the reverse, which is the correct way. Now it looks like the Putties have weird flesh-hoods around their faces. Jesus Christ, what is with them and fucking up old characters' heads?
>>21584728At least another ranger team is bothering to acknowledge Zedd. An evil version of Rita has just killed a ranger in 2023 and plans to rewrite history to erase the rest of the MMPR rangers. Apparently, this such is a low priority for:>Grid Battleforce>Mystic Force>SPD A-Squad>SPD 2040>Time Force...that they're going to let the remaining old farts handle it.
>>21585291Hasbro wanted another excuse to not make LC Ninja Storm figures.
>>21585381Isn't it funny the one time every Ranger team decided to team up to stop one threat instead of letting the current team solve it themselves, it was in the Legendary Battle when all they had to do was fight some henchmen?
>>21585381To be fair, we do see Alpha alerting other teams in the trailer.>>21585400Goddamn I still hate Super Megaforce so fucking much.
>>21585251oh wow that's bad>>21585274I've always wondered what the campus policy on PR fans is
>>21585421>I've always wondered what the campus policy on PR fans ishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kf8dGiE7Gu0
>>21585431do you need to pay the jews a fee to take pictures?
>>21585017I wonder if his company is interstellar
>>21585323>7 actors>7 MMPR Ranger colorsCould Adam and Aisha show up at the last second as MMPR Green and White?
>>21585462Why would they show up in Tommy's colors? That makes no sense.
>>21584488They used the ZAP Megazords as either the actual models or they based the renders off of them. You can tell by the T-Rex's eyes, the detailing on the Sabertooth Tiger, the way the yellow on the Mastadon looks, as well as connector ports for the Mastadon to connect to the Rex. Wish they used the SoC instead, it's not 100% screen accurate either but it looks SO much better than the ZAP.
>>21585336Its revenge on the Jews for circumcison
>>21585291STOP MAKING OC RANGER SUITS FOR THE LOVE OF GOD
>>21585025What was the explanation for Zedd and the Zwave?
>>21584651I find it odd that her death happens in the actual anniversary special. It seems like Trini's death should have been something that happened years ago for it to be tasteful. I have no idea why that's just the feeling I get.
>>21585536Dino Fury Zedd's a clone one of Tarrick's monsters made by scanning Zedd from his most evil days and manifesting that. The real Zedd is out with the Mystic Mother or dead if you count Super Legends.
>>21584917>it makes more sense to do it about JDFIt doesn't because Tommy in canon lives to be a grandpa, and it would be pretty fucked up of Hasbro to recon his happy ending and kill him off prematurely just because JDF died.>>21585090>just feels strange for the franchise to suddenly get super sentimental about her 20 years after the fact.They're not getting sentimental, they're exploiting Thuy's real life death for television drama. They have Rocky in Red and Kat in Pink, so they could have easily had Trini captured off-screen and used Aisha as Yellow. They're killing off Trini to try to emotionally manipulate the audience into thinking this shitty special is deeper than it is. JDF dying kind of takes the wind out of their sails though. It's difficult to feel emotionally affected by Trini's character being killed 20 years after Thuy's real life death when JDF just died in November.
>>21585580>emotionally manipulate the audienceAnon, all media is emotionally manipulative.
>>21585589Besides, I don't see how this is any more emotionally manipulative than having a suit actor dress up as the Yellow Ranger and convince fans that Trini the character is still alive and none of their childhood heroes will ever die.
Trini's been the Schrodinger's Cat of Power Rangers for long enough that they're better off killing her now than later. Was the franchise just supposed to pretend she lived well into old age, with photoshopped pictures of a 90-year-old Thuy Trang? For whose sake? The fans who can't handle a fictional character's death?
>>21585580>It doesn't because Tommy in canon lives to be a grandpacomic universe is different from tv one
It's really weird that they really pushed this anniversary special when austin and jdf aren't available
>>21585685>jdf>availableWas Hasbro supposed to wait until necromancy was invented before they could do an anniversary special?
>>21585614You say this as if the show has constantly been referencing Trini until now. The point is it comes across as exploitative. It was tasteful and appropriately timed to dedicate a Time Force episode to her memory, this comes across as the bug men who produce the show trying to harvest any emotion out of the special by drudging up a real life actor's passing for the sake of fans who I hope never learn where Thuy's body is buried.
>>21585717>exploitativeIt's Power Rangers, anon. This is a franchise that got off the ground by exploiting countless people. Compared to ripping off actors and composers, and everything Shuki Levy did to that VR Troopers actress, acknowledging that Trini died is small potatoes. Besides, how is it less exploitative to keep Trini alive and having her show up in the Legendary Battle or the Beast Morphers teamup? Why would it be preferable to have Trini show up in Once and Always as a voiceless suit actor?
>>21585741>Trini alive and having her show up in the Legendary Battle or the Beast Morphers teamup? Why would it be preferable to have Trini show up in Once and Always as a voiceless suit actor?yes because these are the only options for the MMPR yellow ranger...
>>21585741>Why would it be preferable to have Trini show up in Once and Always as a voiceless suit actor?evidently Tommy will be so nobody wins!
>>21585752Speaking of JDFIt's pretty jarring that a major factor with his grudge on Hasbro was his accusation over the original idea for Once & Always ripping off Legend of the White DragonNow that's his swan song yet it has almost zero appeal to PR fans after Aaron's drama mongering and has zero normalfag appeal because well, look at itMeanwhile Once & Always is setting itself up for positive reception from PR fans and already has nostalgic normalfags willing to watch (granted, it's more out of novelty)
>>21585760I don't find either appealing.
>>21585151>collarsLooks like they're actively using puffy necks to as a throwback to original MMPR.>>21585685>austin For the jillionth time, Austin was charged mere months before this filmed, and the rumors of this special existed before then, he was definitely planned to be a part of this before that ended up happening. What are they supposed to do, cancel the whole anniversary because of one of your stars got in wrapped up in tax fraud? >>21585580>they're exploiting Thuy's real life death for television drama.I don't inherently disagree with that notion, but there's definitely worse ways to do this. I would rather Trini live on personally. Just because Thuy's no longer with us doesn't mean Trini has to be gone too, but again, she'd just be a big elephant in the room as a helmet head or always off screen doing something else, so writing off her character in a heroic sacrifice is kind of the logical way to go about acknowledging her absence while maximizing drama. It has the ability to work depending on how much actual respect and tribute they pay to Thuy herself.
>>21585237>>21585242Also I don't think it happens all that much as people think. In season 1 I think they mentioned they fought in a warehouse district (so minimal civilians) at least once, and in Doomsday which had an extremely destructive fight mid city thanks to Zyuranger finale footage they specifically had Rita teleport capture everyone in the city except the Rangers so they "couldn't hide" in order to avoid the implication that hundreds of people died from all the destroyed buildings in the fight between Megazord and Cyclopsis.
>>21585056At least Bulk had justification to come back since he left Skull behind.
>>21585789This. Austin would have been in and probably would have been alongside Billy and Zack as one of the leads. But after he got charged he couldn't make the shoot. JDF was never gonna be a thing even when he was alive because of how he burnt bridges with Hasbro.
>>21585806>Austin would have been in and probably would have beenhe literally said he hated coming back for Beast Morphers and never wanted to do it again.
>>21585749whatever happened to the Tanya actress?
>>21585789>Looks like they're actively using puffy necks to as a throwback to original MMPR.that's fucking retarded, even as a kid I hated it. Is their green ranger going to use a cheap foam shield too?
>>21585810because they made him shave his beard and everyone mad fun of him for being fat
>>21585819>whatever happened to the Tanya actress?she has a podcast with Catherine Sutherland
>>21585819Look at her IMDB page, she actually works a lot. She constantly expresses interest in returning though. I feel like her and Adam being SPA would have made more sense than Aisha since they were sort of a thing in Zeo/Turbo. She was technically in MMPR, so why not? I'd say make her SPA, make Aisha Yellow, and don't kill Trini, but what do I know?
>>21585789Rocky being a ranger was a last minute change, he was supposed to be in SPA.
>>21585819She went back to her time and Aisha returned?
>>21585667We see him and Kat as grandparents in Zeo. Ninja Steel already established these events are in process, with Kat and him together and they both have a son, presumably the father of the grandkids that appeared in Zeo. Killing him would make no sense with what they established that'll be future of the PR universe.
>>21585832oh yea she wasn't MMPR, still kinda feel like she should have returned though
>>21585851>Killing him would make no sense with what they established that'll be future of the PR universe>thinking PR writers give a fuck about lore
>>21585614>Was the franchise just supposed to pretend she lived well into old age, with photoshopped pictures of a 90-year-old Thuy Trang? For whose sake? The fans who can't handle a fictional character's death?When an actor who plays a beloved character dies in a tragic manner, it's cathartic to be able to imagine that character will at least live on off-screen. It's why Fast and Furious doesn't kill Brian.>>21585789>she'd just be a big elephant in the room as a helmet head or always off screen doing something elseWhat difference does it make? Kim will always be a helmet head or off doing something else, and relations with JDF got so bad he said he was done with Power Rangers for good, so even if he were still alive he wasn't gonna be making any future appearances out of costume. There was really no reason to kill Trini when another MMPR Yellow already existed to take her place.
>>21585866Have you even watched the last couple of seasons?
>>21585867>There was really no reason to kill Trini when another MMPR Yellow already existed to take her place.I get it and honestly I'm iffy on killing Trini myself, but in terms of story reasons for having an anniversary special to begin with, five alumni just coming back to fight a new threat doesn't have as much dramatic weight as formally acknowledging the death of one of their OG cast mates and hopefully paying tribute to her.Sure, they coulda killed off Alpha or some shit to accomplish that, but again, really waiting to see how much they pay tribute to Thuy herself before I come to a conclusion on if this good or not.
>>21585789If you compare heights of the Pink doubles, the one in the all 6 fight is def shorter and has a bigger butt, so probably Kimberly in this scene and maybe Amy Jo lent her voice?
>>21585910with old rangers coming back with powers that were lost or destroyed?
>>21585336I'm tired of this type of autism from the fandom. Why can't people just be happy?
>>21585938I can see her being guilt tripped into doing that after JDF
>>21585972I don't think any of the Rangers that cameod since Ninja Steel had that problem, but even if they did its easy to assume they got them back or fixed them off screen years ago. That's completely different from a flash forward showing Tommy as an old man, then having him die in his late 40s in a later season.
>>21585973Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to see the Putties back and this is hardly going to ruin the special for me, I just find it aggravating that the crew keeps fucking up really obvious aspects to the costumes like this (another example being Titanium Ranger's visor, or the Z-crest on Zedd's mask).
>>21585464Adam was Zeo and Turbo Green and Aisha was a Tiger ranger too
>>21585274The Command Center blew up.
>>21585834Yeah didn't Aisha like, get reverted in time and choose to grow up in Africa, swapping lives with Tanya essentially?
