What a time to be a Power Rangers fan. A certain number of years ago, the thought of more seasons of the show would have seemed farfetched, let alone the release of a feature-length film, a live streaming show, an addictive mobile game, and a successful line of ongoing comics to add on top of that. There's a lot to be thankful for in 2018, and the hits, it seems, just keep on coming. Now, as we rev up for the launch of the Power Rangers: Shattered Grid comic event, the main writer of the BOOM! Studios publication brings to us this live-action teaser short, starring none other than original Green Ranger Jason David Frank from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (and, like, fifty other seasons) as the villainous Lord Drakkon. Kyle Higgins has been putting in work these past couple years with B...

(Kyoryu) Brave New World Tokusatsu hero shows, and the worldwide fandom surrounding them, have changed greatly over the past fifteen years. Beyond genre, beyond formula, beyond character archetypes, beyond even cinematography and direction, the greatest way that change has manifested is cross-pollination. Super Sentai—in its original, unedited form—currently gets official DVD releases in the West. GARO went from a pet project known only to the hardcore, to a running franchise and a mainstay event for one of the biggest MMOs in the world. Kamen Rider has radically reinvented itself several times tonally, and Ultraman is finally getting significant amounts of love by way of behemoth streaming service Crunchyroll.  Meanwhile, more and more properties are adopting the "live-action...

What do Kamen Rider Drive, Spyro The Dragon, Super Mario Bros, and Buzz Lightyear of Toy Story all have in common? They each have their own line of video game gimmick figures. Let's rewind it back to December 2014. Bandai Namco had just pumped out another game for their live-action Kamen Rider franchise on TV in Japan, this one with a slight twist. Bandai Namco wanted to hop in on the gimmick figure market much like like its competitors at Skylanders, Amiibo, and Disney Infinity, so they made Kamen Rider Summonride. Unfortunately, due to poor game design, bad controls, and the fact that the figures are extremely lackluster, Summonride fell flat. It's time to pick up that Dualshock 3, and watch as our Friends of Justice at Fighting Frogs Ultra attempt to get down and dirty with some ...

Are we all feeling nostalgic today? Well, too bad, because there's nothing here for you. Recently, a trailer dropped for the new ReBoot: The Guardian Code, the modern follow-up to the 1990s original ReBoot, in which a group of computer-generated characters live in a video game world where they must battle it out in varied scenarios for the amusement of the players out in the real world. At the time, the 3D animated title could be seen as a forward-thinking series exploring the possibilities of technology and using new visual techniques to bring to life its experimental adventure story. Which is why it puzzles many to find that what we have in this new ReBoot is a derivative, backward-glancing live-action series with CG integration that looks like something we've already seen and forgo...

The New York Toy Fair is currently in full swing. This is the time when companies create booths and give presentations to the press to show up what direction they are heading and what toys are coming out for the year. For toy geeks, it's like Christmas seeing all the new reveals. But one announcement that rocked the toy world was made a couple days prior. In probably the greatest shock to the fandom, it was revealed that Bandai of America and Saban Brands would be parting ways in 2019! After 25 years, Bandai of America will no longer make Power Rangers toys or import items from Toei Co's Super Sentai. Though it should be noted that Bandai of Japan will still continue to support Super Sentai with toys and merchandise. To put this announcement in perspective this would be like Hasbro di...

Grab your hoverboard and activate your self-lacing shoes. A manga adaptation of Back to the Future is on its way to reinvent our history one page at a time. The 1985 Robert Zemeckis classic about a teenager who travels back thirty years and meets his future parents only to potentially ruin the events that lead to his own birth, is being revived in comic form, as only Murata Yuusuke can depict. The manga artist's biggest claim to fame is his highly celebrated series One-Punch Man, which itself has been adapted as an anime title of the same name. News of this first came to us during a press event for the upcoming Ready Player One, directed by Steven Spielberg, who of course was heavily involved with the Back to the Future movie series through his company Amblin Entertainment.
