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...

In the future, weapons will both inflict and treat the damage they deal to their targets. There's something different about the next destination for the time-tossed heroes of Power Rangers HyperForce. The Twitch roleplay series rolls forward with more fun traipsing about the Power Rangers multiverse, now crossing over with the likes of the much-beloved Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book series from publisher BOOM! Studios. And who better to serve as the guest in this episode than the ongoing book's author Kyle Higgins, playing a character fans of his work on the series may know both from the comic and the series it takes inspiration from. A shattering burst of nostalgia awaits. https://youtu.be/2us14qDVo34 Higgins' appearance coincides with the Shattered Grid comic event, which...

POWER RANGERS Star Amy Jo Johnson Pitches Her New Digital Series

The Pink Ranger needs your help. Amy Jo Johnson, likely known to readers as high school hero Kimberly Hart from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, is hoping to garner support for her new project The Has Been. The Has Been follows an aging actress, Jordana, who, while currently down on her luck, starred in a popular children's show "a couple decades ago." In order for Jordana, played by Johnson, to pay her debts and maintain her lifestyle, she turns to touring the fandom convention scene. In her pitch video, Johnson states, "Because my first job I ever had was that of a Power Ranger, I've discovered this whole wacky, awesome world of conventionhood." However, with a smirk, Johnson assures us "it's not about me." Johnson intends to wear multiple hats as actress, writer, director, and p...

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...

Well, this is an interesting turn of events. After a partnership that endured across two and a half decades, entertainment company Saban Brands has taken a page out of the playbook of their most famous characters and decided to sacrifice the zords. Bandai America, who has worked with Saban for 25 years to produce toys based upon the long-lasting Power Rangers brand, has jointly announced its separation from the media company. Fans are already reeling from the thought that the one other consistent name that carried alongside Saban's where its multicolored superheroes were concerned may soon fade into memory. But as the news comes as a surprise, it's also not one that causes much confusion either. Bandai and Saban's statement follows: "After a successful 25-year partnership building ...

You can find Part 1, which covered some basic gaming tips and tricks for maxing your Megazord damage score, here. Part 2 of Maxing Megazord is going to focus on the effective use of Mega abilities.

Before we discuss Mega abilities, we will start with a few corrections and updates that we all went through during the last Megazord event together: Patch 1.7.0 brought some interesting changes to the game.
