    Power Rangers Lives again!

    My show returns from the brink of death yet again! Saban has just bought back the franchise from Disney. Following sometime after the completion of Disney's 32 episode "MMPR Reversion" season on ABC Kids (which should be early September 2010), Saban (via Nicktoons) will air a new Power Rangers season consisting of at least 20 episodes.
    Rogue Squadron-19 Golds, Battle For Naboo-18 Platinums, Rogue Leader-15 Golds/15 Aces, Rebel Strike-19 Single Golds/19 Single Aces

    That's great!

    Agreed.

    Occasionally when I'm Star Wars hunting I check out other toy isles. The other day I came across new original Power Ranger figures. What gives?
    The best part is, Galactic Heroes versions! Zedd included!
    Nowhere in your incoherent ramblings did you come anywhere close to the answer. Thanks to you, everyone in this room is now stupider having heard you. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul. -Billy Madison-

    I saw this article, and expected to find a thread here about it started by you, LM. Even if I don't much care for it, I'm happy for you.

    (Now to get Arrested Development back on the air.)

    I remember when my sister was in high school and running a day care with her boyfriend's cousin, and a few times I'd go with her and take care of the cousin's 2 little little kids, and that's what we'd do, they'd go nuts for Power Rangers.

    Those 2 little kids are now about to hit their 20s. I'm old. Power Rangers is old.

    If you are into kids shows what isn't there to like about Power Rangers. Godzilla type action battles every episode. Based on the Kimberly comments, you could say the new scantily dressed ladies every season. Most seasons have at least a few interesting characters and "action-adventure" stories, which (depending on the season and who is in charge of the current story) can range from 80's quality like Generation 1 Transformers, Thundercats, 80's He-Man etc. to more recent shows like Transformers Beast Wars, 00's He-Man and 03's TMNT. While most would consider it primarily aimed at kids (like how Looney Tunes and Flintstones are perceived) it does try to appeal to both kids and adult audiences compared to 90% of the shows aimed at kids today on the E/I bent broadcast television channels (though going to Nick almost certainly means the end of broadcast television airings).

    This deal does present me with a minor problem... If there are no broadcast airings I won't be able to watch it given my current situation (no cable).

    For 2010 Disney chose not to produce/air a new season of the Power Rangers show. Instead Disney chose to outsource the the first season (well... the first 32 epsisodes of season 1 anyway) of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to have a new "Reversioned" Mighty Morphin Power Rangers season made (think the Transformers Generation 2 show). To reflect this "Reversion" season Bandai made a new Mighty Morphin line of toys, with a good deal of the toy ideas for the new line being copied from their (and other toy companies) recent successes. This includes "Ben 10" mix & match type figures and Star Wars "Galactic Heroes" type figures.

    Using that logic everything is old. Power Rangers, Transformers, TMNT, He-Man, GI Joe, Star Trek and Star Wars.

    Which deluxe set with Lord Zedd are you talking about, the "Galactic Heroes" style figure set or the normal 4" figure set?
    Rogue Squadron-19 Golds, Battle For Naboo-18 Platinums, Rogue Leader-15 Golds/15 Aces, Rebel Strike-19 Single Golds/19 Single Aces

    the normal 4" inch set..have yet to see the GH style figures of the Power Rangers... the only other figures I have seen are about 2" tall and you can re-arrange the parts of the figures with various Zords to create a sorta ultra Ranger or Ultra Zord.

    I broke down last night and picked up a Puddie and the Pink Ranger (going to try and customize the pink ranger a bit. going to see if I can find a head sculpt that looks close to Amy Jo Johnson.). actually thinking about getting the rest of the rangers and maybe getting the Mega Zord (only $23.00 which is not a bad deal for a Voltron sized version that can seperate into all the individual Zords).
