The sentai Mighty Morphin' is based on actually has a higher quality release in Japan the problem is it was shot with cheaper cameras in America so the American footage looks worse and it's even more noticeable if you take the better quality Sentai footage and mix it with the less than stellar American one, it works better when all the footage is the same quality even if a bit lower.

True. Mixing mid 70's film with early 90's video isn't going to make for a consistent look, but I assumed even for a cash grab they'd have released something somewhere by now

It looks like the show was shot on video, which is an awful source but it can still look better than it is.

The only benefit of MMPR being on Blu-ray is having more episodes on a disc. Thus resulting in a complete set that contains less discs. Shout! Factory, being a North American company, wouldn't be allowed to even put it on Blu-ray for that reason alone. They'd be required to improve the picture and sound quality of the episodes as well, although that rule doesn't seem to apply to non-North American studios.

As for cash grabs, I guess not even Shout! Factory is that greedy. As of March 27th, they'd have released RPM, which is the last PR season to which they have the distribution rights. They've already released Green with Evil on DVD, and a Best of Blue DVD consisting of six MMPR episodes that feature Billy. So things like that are about the only PR-related cash grabs I can see Shout! Factory producing, once they've released that one last season individually.

Why is that? So dumb, I read in another place it's part of the license agreement so that people would realize Blu-Ray meant higher quality? But now that Blu-Ray is over a decade old they should let those releases happen.

The only way I'm ever buying tv shows on physical media again is if I can get old complete SD shows in one Blu-ray. I'd totally buy a "All of MMPR on 2 BR discs" or "Complete PRs collection on on 5 BR". Or heck why use BR, 4k Bluray is essentially a new format just re-using the Blu-Ray name to trick people into thinking it's not a new format and they go along with it and not feeling burned when having to rebuy all their movies for a fourth time. But yeah I think all seasons MMPR-RPM would likely fit in one 4K blu-ray and likely an entire season of HD PRs in one 4K BR.

This video is almost a year old, but since all discussion of the MMPR fanfilm is banned from Rangerboard and most PR fan communities, I was never aware of this tell-all video on it's troubled production until today. Give it a go

Blu-ray was mentioned in the agreement, but there are probably conditions to that. Unless they'd be trying to improve the picture quality somehow, they won't be putting PR out on Blu-ray any time soon. They even talk about it in a discussion in this tweet.

Plus again, the episodes most likely aren't suitable for Blu-ray. Mill Creek was going to put He-Man on Blu-ray too, but then decided the masters they had for the episodes weren't suitable for Blu-ray. Media Blasters was also going to put Voltron: Fleet of Doom on Blu-ray, but then the plans were cancelled, and probably for the same reason.
