I dunno, I kinda like the sense of legacy it gives the franchise, much like in Japan. Or with Star Trek, where basically that role belongs to them.I get why long term fans would be happy to see them, but as with Jason in Beast Morphers, they are both just so old now it feels weird to me.
I guess part of it is gonna come down to how they use them.
-ZacWilliam, it's a fun idea at least.
Another consideration is looking back over the past several years of Sentai series….a LOT of them have questionable value in terms of a conversion to Power Rangers. Hasbro might be trying to stay out of a position where they get stuck with a lackluster or culturally conflicting Sentai series by taking lead for their own markets.Its been rumored for awhile that Hasbro is wanting to try to produce all in house, this has lead to people thinking something gone wrong on the back end between them and Toei; but the Cosmic Fury panel states that their relationship is still strong as ever. I think we might see something like what we get with Transformers, where Hasbro gets help on designing stuff. So even if its all original, Toei might still help in creating stuff for the series; just unique stuff separate from whatever Sentai they are working on. While its just a theory, it does follow a known pattern of theirs.
Before the announcement of Cosmic Fury, I had been thinking that a way they could have adapted Zenkaiger for the 30th anniversary season would have been to take advantage of the four megazord-styled suits and the one Gokaiger-based suit and try to get back the actors who played the respectively-colored rangers in the seasons that those suits are based on.and having a team of Androids instead of assorted people.
Ahhhhhh, interesting. I never knew. I always figured it was his friction with JDF and his being their go-to guy for stuff like this that kept him away.He originally wasn't even going to do it at all. He only agreed to do it for one specific reason related to something that was only happening in that season of the show:
Well, for Super Megaforce, he declined to come back for the Legendary Battle because he was busy serving in Iraq at the time:Ahhhhhh, interesting. I never knew. I always figured it was his friction with JDF and his being their go-to guy for stuff like this that kept him away.
Thanks for sharing that!
