The Power Rangers have taken over the week, it seems. In the aftermath of the Power Morphicon event, where fans from across the globe gathered to share in their love of all things spandex, the franchise's 25th anniversary was celebrated with a special crossover episode on television, while the comics paid tribute in their own way with the finale issue to the Shattered Grid event, with more colorful shenanigans on the way. But for those who couldn't make it out to Morphicon, or those who want to remember some of the good times, here are a few helpful reminders of this year's festivities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsktb315JCE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpu995Rvf60 See you at the next convention.   You might also like: POWER RANGERS BEAST MORPHERS Trailer: Now W...

As Power Rangers fans bid farewell to the superhero franchise's long-standing toy makers at Bandai, they're offering one more special item before closing up shop and passing the torch to new owner Hasbro. As a special convention exclusive, Bandai America will make available the Lord Drakkon figure, as well as his iconic throne, from the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book series from BOOM! Studios. Hailing from a dark alternate universe in which Green Ranger Tommy Oliver never joined the show's familiar heroes in their quest to save Earth from evil, Drakkon quickly became one of the book's most prominent villains, now featured in the Shattered Grid mini-series event. The Lord Drakkon figure and the Lord Drakkon throne are sold separately, but are available for order by attendin...

Hold onto your Pocky, anime fans. Batman is coming back to the Japanese animation world with an all-new project, descending upon us in 2018. This time, he brings with him a pool of talent that gave us the likes of the animated Afro Samurai as well as the special effects actioner Kamen Rider Fourze. While Batman inches one step closer to his apparent goal of filling every possible screen on every continent at the exact same time, here's a brief rundown of what we know so far. This feature-length anime, titled simply Batman Ninja, is the work of director Mizusaki Junpei, whose talents were brought to several MegaMan X video games before landing a producing gig with the popular JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime. Joining him is Nakashima Kazuki, best known to some of us as a lead writer f...

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...
