    August Update

    The other problem is that Power Rangers isn't really a significant source of income for most people to invest a lot of time and effort into as fans. It's more a labor of love than it is something financially rewarding. Thats part of why many websites/forums/etc come on strong when they launch, then eventually start to die away or are infrequent at updates. Unless you can find something that doesn't take up much time, doesn't require much money, and isn't a big financial loss, you will do ok. But where forums were the primary source of communication with fans, now social media has completely changed and fragmented that landscape. And as the fans age, the dynamics of the fandom age too. When the original actors like JDF eventually step away, there won't be much left to fall back on. And this game of hot potato with the franchise also keeps risking putting it into worse shape if the fans don't like the new directions. Plus Power Rangers is linear. It has limited talking about potential and appeal. Plus many of the newer actors are lacking that appeal. Time will tell. And I agree PRE needs more done. But it has to be done in a way where its not about money and where its sustainable for the long term. And thats the real battle. What happens when those doing the interviews and appearances for PRE decide to move on? Especially if they were popular? It's tough to replace them. I'm gonna be doing more research into things in how to further improve PRE and expand it's reach. But even popular forums have turned more into general discussion forums rather than PR forums anymore. Only time will tell where things go next.

  4. http://comicbook.com/powerrangers/2018/08/11/power-rangers-25th-anniversary-photos-black-dino-tommy/ The 25th Anniversary episode of Power Rangers is right around the corner, and we've got some exclusive behind the scenes photos from the anticipated event. As fans saw in the first trailer for the Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel episode Dimensions in Danger, Jason David Frank will be making a return in his Black Dino Ranger for from Dino Thunder, and you can get an up-close look at the fan favorite Ranger suit as well as his trademark weapon the Brachio Staff. The cast seemed to have quite a fun time on the set, as Frank takes a selfie with his Ranger counterpart. You can check out all the photos below. (Photo: Hasbro/Jason David Frank) Frank had a ball working with the new Rangers, including Jason Faunt (Wes Collins) and Catherine Sutherland (Katherine Hillard), and is excited for fans to see the finished product. "Working side-by-side with Faunt was really cool because we worked together in Forever Red, but we haven't worked together since, although we do a lot of comic cons together," Frank said. "To bring him in was like, "Oh, wow, Wes, that's crazy, that's cool. That's something new." Then, of course, Catherine was the pink. She was a different pink. Again, go to the picture and it will tell you what she has, I just don't want to say anything." (Photo: Hasbro/Jason David Frank) "There are a lot of other team members, part of the franchise, I think people are going to be excited about," Frank said. "I think it is reaching different age groups. Power Rangers has been around for 25 years, so it's just going to make people wonder, 'Who's involved?'" (Photo: Hasbro/Jason David Frank) You can find the official episode description below. "Dimensions in Danger (8/28): In a special 25th-anniversary episode, the Super Ninja Steel Rangers team up with Legendary Rangers in an epic battle to save the world." The series synopsis reads as follows: 1COMMENTS "In Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel, the heroic teens find themselves face-to-face with an old enemy when they discover Madame Odius is still alive and more determined than ever to steal the Ninja Nexus Prism and revive its powers for her nefarious purposes. Now it’s up to the Rangers, and some unexpected help from new friends, to use the power of teamwork to protect the Prism, defeat Odius and save the world!" The 25th-anniversary special airs in primetime on Nickelodeon Tuesday, Aug. 28 at 8 p.m. ET.

Power Morphicon Convention has been held every other year since 2007, and Scott Zillner has been in control of the show since its second run in 2010. Since then, Power Morphicon Convention has been held consistently on even-numbered years. Power Morphicon Convention hosts the largest number of actors and crew from the Power Rangers franchise, including artists and actors from the original Japanese Super Sentai series, upon which the Power Rangers television show is based. In addition to meeting their favorite actors from Power Rangers, fans and convention attendees will be able to purchase some convention exclusive merchandise. These special convention-only items are available for pre-order with your paid convention membership (attending or non-attending), or at the expo during the show.

  7. https://www.cinemablend.com/news/2455551/hasbro-responds-to-power-rangers-2-rumors Studios are looking for any IP that they can turn into a money earning franchise, and one series that seems ripe with potential is Power Rangers. The classic multi-colored heroes were turned into a movie last year in the appropriately titled Power Rangers, which was intended to be the first in a series of films. However, the movie underperformed at the box office, and news of a sequel basically ground to a halt. Now Hasbro has acquired the entire brand, and the company issued a statement hinting that they were only getting started with Power Rangers, but there were no big plans for the near future. We see tremendous potential for the Power Rangersfranchise around our entire brand blueprint, including feature films. We have nothing specific to announce at this time, but please stay tuned for future news and updates around the Power Rangers brand. In May, Hasbro acquired the entire Power Rangers brand, along with other entertainment brands including My Pet Monster, Popples, Julius Jr., Luna Petunia and Treehouse Detectives, from Saban in a deal valued at $522 million. The toy maker announced that consumers could expect to see the first line of products in the spring of 2019, and that big things were to come from Power Rangers. Hasbro has stated that it see's a "significant opportunity" for Power Rangers across all forms of entertainment, which left many to wager that that includes a movie. Per Comic Book Movie, Hasbro issued a statement that revealed that they have nothing specific to announce, but that people should be on the lookout for Power Rangers related news in the future. But it's not a downright confirmation, so there's no guarantee that Power Rangers will return to the big screen anytime soon. There's some debate as to whether a new Power Rangers movie would start from scratch or serve as a follow up to 2017's movie, but there are hopes that the latter is the case. While last years movie wasn't bad, it's tone was all over the place and suffered from not having any actual Power Rangers until the third act. But the inclusive cast was a highlight, and it'd be nice to see them get a second chance after some retooling. Plus, they set up the fan-favorite Green Ranger for a sequel, so people are excited to see that character one day.

    August Update

    The server transfer is complete. Thanks for your patience, if you even noticed. lol
  10. Mesogog

    August Update

    The first order of business is moving PRE to a different server. Be aware that while the move will be quick, you may experience issues accessing PRE the next 24 hours. Although it should be relatively painless for most people, a few may experience some issues for a short period of time so be aware of that.

    August Update

    The August Update is underway and may take a few days so please be patient. You may see some things come, go, change, or be modified during this time so don't worry it's not you. lol Stay tuned!

    Pro Wrestling Discussion Thread

    WWE keeps swerving us on Lesnar. I don't know that he's actually leaving WWE. IMO Lesnar in person is a pretty nice guy and respectful if you are the same to him. I met him one night many years ago at a private function totally unexpected. He was pretty cool IMO. His character on TV is nothing like him. I think WWEs story telling has gotten a bit stale and off the rails IMO. I still watch it but they need to really fix their storyline problems.

    Power Morphicon 2018

    Would love to hear about any Power Morphicon experiences here!
  15. Mesogog

    Does Power Rangers excite you anymore?

    What do you think is the one thing that keeps PR going after all of these years, failed movies, plot holed tv show, etc? Is it the toys alone? What do you think? Or do you think there is a genuine interest to see it succeed so people stick around, stay active, and keep trying to keep it alive?
