In 1983, a group of five heroic inventors united against the evil Jashinka Empire in Kagaku Sentai Dynaman. Three years later, their harrowing adventures were broadcast for American audiences as part of the USA network's Night Flight block. Simply titled Dynaman, this was a parody series capitalizing on the apparent B-movie aesthetic and playing up the silliest aspects of the show. A precursor to 1993's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, this was among the first times Super Sentai would be viewed by American masses, albeit in an altered form. My, how things have changed. But if you want a taste of what it was like for potential tokusatsu fans back in the day, Dynaman is now available to watch online. Courtesy of Night Flight Plus, the Dynaman dub is viewable now, with three episodes. Curio...

The Power Rangers launch into the world of tabetop RPGs with the new Power Rangers Hyperforce. This new role-playing experience comes to us from Hyper RPG on the Twitch streaming platform, featuring a gaggle of geek-centric talents that many will recognize from both within and without the growing Ranger community. Den of Geek provides a synopsis: Power Rangers Hyperforce is set in the year 3016 at Time Force Academy. A team of Time Force Ranger cadets must band together to defeat an ancient evil who is set on unraveling the very fabric of the universe. Under the leadership of their mentor, Jen Scotts, and with the show’s Game Master, Malika Lim, the newly minted Rangers will cross both time and space to complete their mission while running into many familiar eras (and faces) alo...

2017’s Best Power Rangers Episode Is a Voltron Episode

2017’s Best Power Rangers Episode Is a Voltron Episode

Voltron: Legendary Defender is back at it, with another burst of hilarity and excitement in the show's fourth season on Netflix. And, as we hunkered down to catch up with the heroic, space-faring Paladins of Voltron and their robotic lions, we were treated to a special episode that some of us in the tokusatsu fandom couldn't help but find a bit familiar. While there are plenty easy comparisons to be made between them and the multi-colored Teenagers With Attitude of the live-action Power Rangers franchise (and their Super Sentai cousins from across the pond), none would be so bold as with this season's striking fourth episode, "The Voltron Show". We're not just throwing shade, folks. We're launching it out of a circus cannon to the tune of a full-scale marching band. And the result, true ...

UPDATE: Shout! Factory confirmed earlier this year their official release of Seijuu Sentai Gingaman coming in 2018. The original story follows. Shout! Factory has been kicking ass and taking names these past few years, putting out one quality release after another from the worlds of Power Rangers, Super Sentai, and other tokusatsu titles. Continuing their trend of releasing each yearly Super Sentai series, beginning from 1992's Kryoryu Sentai Zyuranger (from which Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was adapted), we now have 1998's Seijuu Sentai Gingaman (Power Rangers Lost Galaxy) to add to the growing Sentai pantheon. At least we think we do. With no official release date announcement from Shout, we only have the brief Amazon listing for the DVD set to go on. Which means the releas...

Move Over, Michael Meyers – The Power Rangers Are Taking Over Halloween, With These Costumes

Halloween is fast approaching, and for some that means the search for the perfect costume may soon begin, if it hasn't already. If you're feeling like letting your nerd flag fly, you might consider these suits and props inspired by the Power Rangers movie. If nothing else, you know you won't have to suffer being the fifteenth Stranger Things kid people see by the time you show up to the party. These costumes come from the people at Disguise. They're sporting a wide range of sizes and styles, available for child and adult fans alike. Among their offerings are Ranger suits in both "classic" and "muscle" form, as well as gloves, weapons, helmets, and even a full Megazord outfit.   I love that even the costume model is wearing heels here. Because nothing says "mortal combat...

Naomi Scott's star is on the rise lately. The British import starred in this year's Power Rangers reboot film as high school queen bee superhero Kimberly, the Pink Ranger, only to be later cast as Arabian Princess Jasmine in the live-action reboot of another beloved franchise, Disney's Aladdin. She may be putting her singing chops to good use in that role, but in the meantime, she's got new music of her own to show off. From her upcoming EP, here's the official video for her latest single, Vows. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWxk3bNXgAk In this artful R&B music video, Naomi is seen in the reflection of her rearview mirror as she drives through the neon-soaked Tokyo, Japan. Astute Ranger fans may raise an eyebrow at the subtitles which alternate between a pink and yellow font, ...
Justice League Comic vs Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Comic: Who Won The Week?

Justice League Comic vs Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Comic: Who Won The Week?

Articles, Blog, Books, Comics, Movies & TV, Power Rangers, Reviews, Toku
This week, I read a fun comic book packed with everything I wanted out of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, from exciting action to cool character moments, and an interesting peek into new corners of the universe sure to keep me coming back for more. And then I read the Justice League crossover. To say that these two titles, each with our color-coded Teenagers With Attitude in common, are on opposite ends of the fun spectrum for me would be an understatement. The title of this review suggests a decision must be made about which of the two comic stories rose up to take the crown for this week's best. But let's be honest. Though Justice League / Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #6 has its fans, sending it into the ring with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #19 is a TKO waiting to happen. With sticks o...

Power Rangers Show Their Fighting Spirit in New York Comic-Con 2017 Exclusives

New York Comic-Con presents a batch of new Power Rangers merchandise to add to your collection, and we'll give you zero guesses about which season they've chosen to showcase the most. Check out this new action figure set as well as a sweet, new Megazord and let's wonder together when we're getting around to some of those other seasons. To be fair, Bandai has announced a number of special items in recent years ranging across a few different beloved seasons, and the Fighting Spirit set technically encompasses multiple incarnations (all centered around one dude) but none so prevalent as the unstoppable Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Bandai's golden goose, Tommy Oliver. While we appreciate the love, we're also still checking our watches as we wait for more stuff from elsewhere in th...
