KyuuKyuu Sentai GogoFive, the basis for Lightspeed Rescue, is scheduled for release on April 24th.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078X95TQ9...=Power+Rangers

Gingaman comes out in three weeks, and we could get GogoFive in three months. Just like with the original August 15, 2016 release date for Megaranger, it looked like they could put out more than just two Sentai last year. So I'm aware that the April 24th date for GogoFive could still change. Even still, it's still nice to see that they're getting even further with these Sentai releases.

To be honest, I've personally been anticipating news on a Ninja Steel DVD release, but I'm definitely not complaining about this one. This was a huge shock to me, but it made me happy.

I wish they would release DVDs of pre zyuranger Sentai or even the skipped modern sentais. I somehow doubt casuals people nostalgic for Lost Galaxy are buying these sets, it has to be tokusatsu fans.

For those that like both the Sentai and PR versions of each series, do any of you usually prefer the Sentai version, the PR version, or like them both equally?

I actually watched Zyuranger and am liking it a lot, especially through a story perspective. There were quite a few people that insisted that I watch the Carranger version over the Turbo series, mostly for being a spoof of its own self.

Really dependent of course on each individualís taste.

Of course what I have seen are things like Time Force and Timeranger being in the same level

Though then you have modern power rangers where Shinken/Gosei/Gokai are just seen as much better then Samurai/Megaforce

Then you have ninja steel and ninninger. Both god awful but in their own ****** ways.

I think they'd put out pre-Zyuranger Sentai before they start putting out later Sentai at random. They're clearly going in order with the Sentai they've already released. There's no doubt that tokusatsu fans are going after these sets. They know the order in which these Sentai came out. So they should know what to expect to get next. Plus we don't even know that they'd skip Go-Busters, ToQger, and Zyuohger if they were to get as far as those two. In fact, they probably won't skip those since they did say everything is fair game.

They started with Zyuranger since it's the first one adapted for PR, and now they're close to getting to GogoFive, the EIGHTH Sentai to be adapted for PR. I personally would have been happy with just Zyuranger, but the sales are apparently proving to justify more releases. So as long as they want to keep these releases going, I'll be supporting them. We should be glad they're even doing this at all, and that they seem to be trying to put these out at a faster pace now. There have only been two Sentai sets released per year since they started doing this in 2015. If they keep the April release date for GogoFive, then we could get a third Sentai released this year, and maybe even a fourth. If that's the case, one of them might even be a pre-Zyuranger Sentai that people like you are thirsty for.

If they get to Timeranger, it's definitely going to be on my list.

I've also heard Ninpuu Sentai Hurricanger (sp?) is better than the PR version.

#23 of Boom's comic series is out this Wednesday. Rita returns to fix her damaged palace to make it look like Zedd's remodeling? Also, a conspiracy theorist in denial suggesting that the Olsens were not twins, but one girl? Both are out there. The latter is Kyle Higgins being tongue-cheek and the Power Rangers self-aware of absurdities that surround them.

Full frontal cover art of the GogoFive release, and 3D image of the packaging.






As for Super Ninja Steel, the first episode is called "Echoes of Evil". Episode description is in the link.

The 23rd issue
Spoiler:
had an odd monster of the day which was played for laughs and the Rangers had some meta humor in the situation with the conspiracy theorist in denial sheep who spits wool. Also, Billy finds where Lord Drakkon/alternate Tommy is being held prisoner for questioning. I guess it was supposed to be a shock to the Rangers and the reader, but we already know that Lord Drakkon was taken into custody by Prometha. Not to mention he will get free at the end of next issue to start a variation of the war he provoked and won in his alternate dimension. I am curious what Grace did with the Psycho Green Ranger's dagger.


On a related note, what exactly are the Psycho Rangers. It was after my time of viewership. Are they mutants like the putties with badges or corrupted teenagers like Lord Zedd's team from Green No More or robotic?

In Power Rangers in Space, Astronema created them from energy of her superior, Dark Specter. The more active they were, the weaker Dark Specter would get. Once the rangers defeated them all, he stopped feeling weak.

They'd return again in the form of ghosts, and brought themselves back to life by going through this machine Astronema was using to capture civilians in data cards. The civilians would be restored, and the rangers captured them in the data cards.

The Psycho Rangers returned in Lost Galaxy, where Trakeena got a hold of the data cards and brought them back. The Space Rangers returned to help the Galaxy Rangers get rid of them for good, even though the Pink Psycho Ranger would somehow survive, and go after the Pink Rangers. She'd finally be defeated, however.

Sharing a life force of a powerful being it reads like. Okay, I will go with that. However, trapping them in plastic cards like a credit card to beat them? 😒

Was there ever an HD release of the MMPR seasons? I tried looking online and was surprised I couldn't find it anywhere.

There isn't, and why be surprised? The way it was filmed probably isn't even suitable for HD.

Not to mention it would probably make the Sentai footage more glaring

I'm just saying. Considering the legacy it's created I'm surprised it hasnt gotten an HD makeover, even if it's synthetic upscaling.

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