@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  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.

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

They seem to be treating all the games with the same reverence.Even ReCoded, which was just an excuse to redo the first game again.

I've mentioned it before, but in terms of the 'Zordon Era' Lost Galaxy is pretty much the Epilouge, as everything after are more self contained series, out side a few crossovers.

It was pages ago anyway. hehe. :) The series mostly stands on its own legs, as such we don't see stuff like Alpha or the Megaship often, but they provide a more direct connection to the Zorda Era and the last series. The Galaxy Rangers never really use the Space Ranger's tech beyond of the Megaship now and then for transport. There will be other things later that also serve to connect to the Zordon era, places, people, etc.

Well it also would have helped if one of the guys in charge didn't go "THIS HAS TO BE SPACE THEMED!" and have everyone else go. "Uh.. how?"

Well the whole reason it was Space themed, is because 'In Space' was stupidly successful, so TPTB felt that obviously space was the reason... despite 'In Space' actually being much less 'In Space' then the title leads you to believe.

Amit didn't come on until Wild Force, if I remember correctly. Even then, I'm not sure he was ever really "in charge"?

 

On LG Rangers using Space Ranger tech: I remember when I first saw the Jet Jammers, I thought they were modified Galaxy Gliders.

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.

John Tzachor is who you are thinking of. He decided that Lost Galaxy needed to be Space themed, becuase Space was obviously popular. He decided that Lightspeed Rescue shouldn't have any ties to Zordon for a fresh start like the Sentais have (Lynn's original proposal was that the LR tech had some connection to Billy iirc), he's also the one that made Samurai be almost a straight 1:1 adaption of Shinkenger and the hot mess that was Mega Force becuase the dude apparently has no actual creativity, as his ideas always seem to come down to 'mirror the sentai'

No, that was Nickelodeon responsible for that.

 

As for more about Tzachor's working on the show, read this to see how Judd Lynn worked his butt off to make the seasons he worked on (the second half of Turbo through Time Force) as good as they could be (and were) while working under Tzachor - http://deriksmith.li...l.com/4099.html

So, is this series worth reading/buying?


--SoS

 

Context: I grew up with Power Rangers and have a passing nostalgic interest in MMPR, but not much love for the stuff that came after that wasn't tied specifically to the original. I have not watched an episode of PR since...Dino Thunder, I guess. 

 

I think the comic is fantastic. Adds some great depth and gravitas to some of the events of the series. It's very much the kind of book I would want for PR, and really elevates the source material. There are 4 issues (starting with #0) of the main book, and one issue of the Pink Ranger spinoff. It's far better than it has any real right to be. I highly recommend it.

I had hoped to get an answer like you have given just now. Your opinion is certainly valued. I grew up with Power Rangers as well, I think the last series I fully watched and invested my time with was in Space. Only recently have I had a nostalgic kick and all due to my 7 year old, who stumbled into Power Rangers via Netflix. We are having a blast watching Dino Charge together.

 

I cannot wait to read the comic now. That first trade come out soon enough.

Guess here no-one told the director to redesign the suits and make them "more believable". (Sorry Bay, never gonna forget...)
Curious about this thing, anyway, the designs look good, wonder how the Zords will look like.

I do think the suits look a bit better in practical form instead of stock imagery.
