Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Couple of thoughts-

 

I do feel for Linkara when a season just fails to make the team engaging. I don't agree with all his ideas (not sure why Turbo should have been about the existing team learning to juggle Ranger duties with adult life) but I always agree when he comments on teams not really displaying heroic qualities. As he's mentioned many times, my vision of a Ranger is someone who deserves the powers because they would be a hero to the best of their ability even without them. Yeah the costumes and gadgets are cool but the moments that stick in my mind are always when a ranger or team is outgunned but still gives it their all to save the world. Even the cheesy first movie got that concept right. A season that gives us boring mannequins that just wear the powers is so boring.

 

I am disappointed in his thoughts on the costumes though. He's made it very clear that he doesn't care what the sentai does but I think Gokaiger had a brilliant concept with the team being human-like aliens from an already conquered planet who 'pirate' the past powers and slowly grow into caring about the virtues super sentai champions. Super Megaforce just keeping the pirate motif for stuff and not actually doing anything with it is a huge waste. I feel the same way about Magiranger vs Mystic Force, where the family connection in the Japanese series had much more going for it then 'RED IS THE ONLY ONE WHO MATTERS' in the Power Rangers take.

 

Also think Gokaiger made the 'why is no one else helping?' stuff make more sense since, from memory, wasn't the initial Legend War the opener and we're told the assembled teams lost their powers in exchange for unleashing a sure kill attack against the initial armada?

 

Keeping the sentai teams in is stupid. Yes, as he points out and many of us said at the time it's easy enough to say these are alien teams or ancient rangers. But they have no significance to an adaptation that started with Zyuranger. It might have been cool if they'd kept in an appearance by the original sentai team and explained with some mildly meta dialogue that we were seeing the original team that all Rangers across time and space were spawned from....but they didn't do that. There doesn't seem to be any reason beyond, as the video says, a weird mix of lazy and sentai fanboying.

Yep. But the geniuses behind Megaforce were all like "Oh, let's save that big battle for the series finale, kids'll love it and think it's an epic ending!" :rolleyes

Dino Charge fixes most everything, likely in large part to the fact Judd Lynn is involved. Just about any series he's involved in turns out to be really solid; and he's always been about telling a good story while also being able to keep to a budget. The seasons where he as head writer: He gets the promotion about half-way through Turbo so he's likely why the season got salvaged as much as it did near the end. Then he's the main creative force for Space, Lost Galaxy, Lightspeed Rescue, and Timeforce. Then Comes back to help finish up RPM when it starts going over budget; and now after two seasons that are very much 'use as much of the sentai as possible' we get a return to a focus on characters and story where it feels like things have weight and consequences again, as well as creativity with not following its counterpart too closely. It was pretty much a given that Dino Charge had to at the very least be a good, fun series just because of his track record when he has creative control.

The only Sentai I really give them something of a pass on Using is Dairanger... because "they" (Power Ranger production crews in general) have been trying to make a 'lost team of rangers' based on them for years, but it always got cut. It's still badly handled here, but them getting used at least finally gets all post zyu-teams PR counterparts. Older teams then that though is where my issue is... though part of me might have forgiven any use of Jetman... for my own personal reasons.

So, while waiting for Dino Charge's full season to go up on Netflix, I've decided to revisit another series: Mystic Force.

Say what you will, but Kalish's series tended to do really good with the majority of their characters, PROO being the big exception. Toby, Phineus, Clair, Udonna, and even Leelee are generally fun to watch. Even the core aspects of the rangers are good... except Nick. I still feel Nick is the worst Red Ranger. I judge more on personality and actions then acting performance. Nick is pretty much the antithesis of what a Red Ranger should be, he has no faith, he gives up easily, he rarely even leads. Zander is closer to team leader, and the rangers end up being relegated to his support group since they've always got to convince him to keep going it feels like.

Also, I have to wonder just how bad the amount of Mythos in this season really is. Yes it pretty much pushes the rangers to the background and that is bad, but at the same time this is a series that had a firm grasp of its characters, history, and settings. Very few other rangers series get a strong mythos, and most the time it ends up being window dressing at best or tacked on at worst... no non-existance at worst thanks to SMF. Hell, just looking at the Kalish era series... each one really tried to be something different and unique. SPD being set completely in the future; Mystic Force is a fantasy epic; PROO is trying to capture the spirit of the adventure serials that inspired Indiana Jones, Tomb Raider, and Uncharted; and Jungle Fury is a martial arts movie. RPM of course also follows this with being a Post-Apocalyptic series, but they all really try to be something completely different then standard Power Ranger series. For as bad as PROO is, it did succeed in capturing the style and spirit of Adventure Serials and that ends up being one of its few strengths.

I honestly wouldn't mind seeing Kalish return in the Neo-Saban era, 3 outta 4 series being good and creative... it'd be interesting what he could do with some of the good PR production team; I mean for one thing Neo-Saban's action scenes and stunts are much better done then most anything in Disney's era. Just compare any of Samurai's original sword fights to those in Mystic Force and you can really see the difference.

BoA really have got my wallet with the Dino Charge zords. I love them, can't wait for Bragigas or whatever his English name will be. They're just so fun, I liked the Super Megaforce stuff fine enough but these just blow them out the water.

 

Got Plesio Zord today and I think he's fantastic. I even like the T-Rex and Pachy combo (it looks a lot better in person than the stock photos).  Btw does anyone know if we're getting more original auxiliary zords with the last Megazord wave? They did such a great job with the Deinosuchus and Ammonite zords it would be a shame if that was it.

They're already out I saw them today. I imagine that there might be black reprints of the triceratops and stegosaurus to go with the black t-rex and part of me hopes that they reissue the normal color pachy in another wave assortment.

I'm starting to be happy that all the Sentai mecha designs have sucked since Kyoryuger, it's easier on the wallet this way lol.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

There was one released alongside an aqua green version of the Ammonite zord in the last assortment of the non super Dino Charge releases, but it was very rare and goes for a lot online.

 

Personally I like the purple version more, but I'm still annoyed by the fact that I can't own the more show accurate one.

 

http://shukuenshinob...rs-dino-charge/ here's a link to a review of the grey one. I don't blame you for not knowing it exists.

And Liege, you're words really have had an effect on me. It made me relise I've shouldn't care about what others think of me, I should only care about what I think of myself.

Liege is a small dude with a lot of wisdom.

Well one of those descriptive words is accurate I suppose!

I dislike Mystic Force since I find it this odd mix of sticking too close to the sentai for parts but then changing what I think made that version work. In Magiranger the team are siblings with Red as the youngest, hence making him obviously appealing to kids and generally setting him up for this arc of proving himself that isn't as over bearing as some other examples in children's media. In MF, they keep the family ties minus the other four rangers and replace the Harry Potter influence with more LOTR type stuff. Plus said fantasy stuff often feels like it's pushing out the PR stuff which is a complaint I have about Kalish in general. On the one hand it's nice to see someone try new things but you could feel the known fact he wanted to be doing his own shows, not Power Rangers. It's weird because SPD for me is pretty much perfect.

And yet, once he left Power Rangers to do his own shows, the first one he made was the very American Toku-esque Aaron Stone.
