I'm not that much against it as that's just a rather generic looking logo just like the new movie which also bombed. At least the lightning bolt is the same.

Wow, so the speculation of stretching 13 episode seasons over 3 years is crazy but I could see it happen if not for toys which as of right now we don't know if there'll be toys. Could be that the 3 year speculation is correct while Saban finds a new toy partner.


BOA no longer making figures is also crazy but not unheard of, many gaming companies choose not to publish a title in certain regions and others take care of it like THQ did for Sega or how Star Wars has some comics being published by IDW instead of only Marvel. They're choosing what is profitable.


There goes the "We expect to make every ranger in the 6" Legacy collection", I almost got into it but the scale was off, not including weapons, not wanting to start a new line, not being sold in my country so I had to pay more than retail all added up to me not getting them and now I'm glad. Sucks for those that are going to get burnt on that promise.

Whoever gets the license now I hope they realize how important legacy is too PRs. It's obvious we'll get toy of the new season and their take of MMPR because it's flippin' MMPR but besides that they might not care to do the other teams, hope they committ. 3.75" or 5" would be great. I'm excited, I'm cautiously optimistic at whoever gets the license but Bandai just wasn't doing it for me so even if it's another horrible line I won't feel we're any worse off.

2019 season revealed

Spoiler:


https://twitter.com/PowerRangers/sta...42245110493185

Synopsis

Quote:
Set in the future, a secret agency combines a newly discovered substance called “Morph-X” with animal DNA to create the Power Rangers Beast Morphers team. The Rangers must fight off an evil sentient computer virus bent on taking over the source of all Ranger power, the Morphin Grid itself. Featuring never-before-seen leather suits and an all-new beast-themed arsenal (including dynamic new Zords), fans should get ready for a season full of secret ops and morphinominal fun.

Wow, this is the best of news, I was so bummed that they skipped it originally I was going to make it the first sentai I ever watched but looks like that won't be needed anymore

That sentai BOA helped make with all the rangers looked cool ass well but I definitely prefer this move. The new logo is growing on me, I mean I didn't mind it but it just felt too generic but it really depends, it does give it a fresh take.

It's worth watching the Sentai even if you've seen the show. I've watched every Sentai since Goseiger (never finished Zyuohger, I fell behind), plus several old ones (Zyuranger, Dairanger, Abaranger, Magiranger, Boukenger, Gekiranger, and Go-Onger). It's a lot of fun.

But yeah, glad to see Saban adapt this. Go-Busters screamed RPM sequel with its computer virus enemy. Totally could be set after humanity recovered from that disastrous future. Would explain the Enetron-powered future.

This is the most excited I've been about the franchise since Saban bought the property I think. The new logo, Go-Busters adapted, the rumors of yearly theme changes again, the promise of better toys. Sure it could all go down south but I feel this is the re-energizing the franchise needed for me since I had pretty much lost most of my passion towards the show, at least towards the future of the franchise.

I don't see them making any references to RPM (ony of my fav. seasons) but we can hope a small easter egg. At least we can see they're referencing the morphin' grid!

I don't doubt the writing is better in sentai, The thing is I don't have a lot of time to watch TV and when I do I do it multi-tasking doing other stuff on my computer so I just don't have the patience to sit through so many repetitive episodes with subtitles since it means I can't do other things at the same time if I'm reading. Also part of what makes PRs cool to me is the universe it has built over the last 25 years. So when it comes to subtitles toku I avoid sentai and instead look for Kamen Rider or other tokus which there's no alternative.
