  1. So basicsally everything would be different, with only the Zeo Crystal and Dino Gems being the only things preserved from the original timeline, along with a MMPR/DT team member combo? That sounds cool. But I'd rather come up with a plot where Time Force would have to figure out who would be the members of versions of the Ranger teams prior to and after our Time Force season in the new timeline. The TF Rangers would manage to track them down before they're chosen and give them information and instructions on everything. Of course they would not be listened to, however, this would make Alex go really evil on everyone and try to kill every potential/future Ranger. After being successful of killing portions of various future/potential Ranger teams, the remainder of the potential/future Rangers eventually regroup and form an elite organization after a few of them witness the killing of the Time Force Rangers. Somehow they would get to the research of the killed "to-be" Rangers and the killed Time Force Rangers and figure out how to find & combine the Zeo Crystal and Dino Gem technologies together, which would give the 2 MMPR Rangers and 3 PRDT Rangers the powers that you mentioned, this enabling them to form the first official Power Ranger team since Alex had begun killing potential/future Power Rangers. Also, it'd be better to save the Ranger timeline pulling ability for the end of the story (as in for the final battle) against Alex and have a "Legendary Battle" type of ending, but better-executed. Just go with the available potential/future Rangers from the new timeline after Alex had destroyed Ninjor and all of the Power Coins, which would eventually include the Dragon and White Tiger Coins. I'd not change the rest.
  2. I like your idea. This should definitely get made into a separate multi-season spin-off. BTW, I'm also (albeit slowly) getting ideas for a PR's crossover with another franchise.

    Saban Brands is shutting down

    AlwaysARanger85 posted on Ranger Crew that Hasbro has plans for future PR movies (here's the link to the actual post). Looks like they are planning to take the franchise seriously, although the article itself does not say anything about the TV series.

    What are your favorite intros?

    My Top 10 - From top to bottom: 1. MMPR S1 with Tommy 2. MMPR S2 with original cast and with Tommy as either Green or White Ranger 3. RPM 4. Zeo 5. In Space 6. Lightspeed Rescue 7. Jungle Fury 8. Time Force 9. DinoThunder 10. SPD Mystic Force's Intro was good, but does not even begin to compare with what came before it. Overdrive's Intro was too rushed, especially towards the end of that season, when Disney tried to get as many shots to be a part of it as possible. RPM was a totally a different caliber of PR season, that's why I gave it spot no. #3 instead of the MMPR Intro with Kat. Oh and like you said, but with different words - Saban gets an "F" for the intros from Samurai onwards. Dino Charge tried to do something new and it does sound great, but enter Ninja Steel and there's another full "Go Go Power Rangers" re-hash.

    Saban Brands is shutting down

    As per this announcement, as a part of acquiring Power Rangers, Hasbro has acquired Saban Brands as well. 60 employees will be laid off due to the closure. As for the Saban Capital Group - that will still remain in operation. Current rights (Saban Brands - created or owned) Beetleborgs Cirque du Soleil Media Cubix Emojiville Kibaoh Klashers Masked Rider Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty VR Troopers Digimon (all seasons except Digimon Adventure tri and Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters.) Former rights (Saban Brands - created or owned) Sonic X (currently by Discotek Media) Power Rangers (currently by Hasbro) Glitter Force (currently by Toei Animation) Treehouse Detectives (currently by Hasbro) My Pet Monster purchased from American GreetingsTCFC, Inc. (currently by Hasbro) Popples purchased from American GreetingTCFC, Inc.[56] (currently by Hasbro) Luna Petunia (currently by Hasbro) Julius Jr. (currently by Hasbro) Saban Brands will be dissolving this Summer. However, Saban will still act as an consultant for the Power Rangers franchise. This news was already shared by other PR forums, such as PRO, RangerCrew and RangerBoard (I'm assuming, because I can't seem to get on it for some reason).

    Correcting the Power Rangers canon

    Unrealistically thinking: The only way (in my opinion) to correct the cannon is to create a season dedicated to correcting the cannon. Start the season with the plot of the various Power Rangers Multiverses being altered by a new powerful foe who wants to wipe the Power Rangers from existence and make sure the United Alliance of Evil (from PRiS) succeeds in conquering our Galaxy in all Multiverses. Establish that all the seasons (except R.P.M.) are in a single multiverse, which is later established to be the main one. Have a mentor-type of leader bring a new Power Ranger team together and later, bring in some Rangers from previous seasons (at least 1 PR cast main member from each season) to wrap up some long-running storylines and end the season with a proper version of Legendary Battle where the veteran Rangers actually give a crap about stuff rather than just standing in the crowd and look worried and alerted/alarmed. Maybe have the season show various versions of some Rangers in various Multiverses just to make the whole thing more interesting. Use the various Multiverses concept to fix some of the potholes from earlier seasons. Maybe even have various versions of the same Rangers present at the final battle against the main villain or selection of versions of the Ranger characters from every season from various Multiverses and the final episode(s) explore how they function in the final fight together. I say go all out and make the new LB episode a 2-hour movie all 199 Heroes movie, just without the Pre-Zyu and the core 5 Dairanger teams. Bring in Ninjor, Auric, Blue Centurion, original Magna Defender, Titanium Ranger, Sentinel Knight and Spirit Rangers in suit-only just for the heck of it (well, maybe have their original actors just do the ADR or just use the ADR from their own seasons). Have the Veteran Rangers actually aid the new PR team in their fight not just in the main Multiverse, but in others as well. Use the season's plot to bring Zordon back by pulling him out of another Multiverse and bringing him into ours for a couple of episodes. No Gosei/Tensou crap, no Overdrive Alpha, bring back the original, but an upgraded version of Alpha 5 too with a new voice actor. Then have the next season set in the main Multiverse and each other season in one of the other Multiverses. Realistically thinking: The show needs better writers, better composers, each new season needs to have an original theme song and catchy soundtrack music. Those problems need to be fixed first because the Power Rangers Franchise has given up its true identity and desperately needs to re-claim it. That will be the foundation for actually making any cannon corrections.

    Correcting the Power Rangers canon

    Megaforce and Super Megaforce were the opportunity to get the Power Rangers canon back on course. However, splicing two different Sentai seasons together and compressing them to a 40-episode format didn't help, it actually made things worse. Obviously, Saban couldn't do the anniversary season like it should have been done, so he opted to do what could be done. Gokaiger had references, tributes and even sub-plots of its previous seasons in it. It was the perfect season to adapt into a PR anniversary season. According to JDF, Saban could not license all the Ranger teams and it's the reason of why we got what we've got as the anniversary season and so much hyped, expected and anticipated Legendary Battle. Gokaiger even did PR references and their season was mostly focused on newer teams, while the older ones were featured in 199 Hero movie and in various episodes throughout its run. Toei basically delivered both footage and story elements for Saban to use. It was the perfect opportunity to get the cannon back on track and to wrap up some long-running storylines and finally fix some potholes that have been bothering the fandom for two decades. While I don't think Toei will ever do a season like Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, I think Saban has a lot of homework to do on that area. The next big Super Sentai anniversary season that will feature at least the suits from the past seasons should be fully adapted for Power Rangers and that means no pre-Zyu, and Dairanger (except Kibaranger) stuff and of course, exclude the newer unadapted Sentai seasons. The franchise needs a TV season that actually gives a crap about what came before. From MM 1 and all the way to the season that precedes the anniversary one. Well... that and actually a well-written current season, where the main characters and villains are actually involved in a proper storyline and have proper character and season's plot and storyline development. Also, whenever a chance, use at least sound effects and soundtrack songs from the early seasons if not the actual themes of previous seasons during battle scenes. However, for that, Saban needs to start actually caring about the canon rather than just making tons of money. Because if Saban doesn't give a crap about the PR canon, I don't think the writers and the producers ever will. Especially since re-visiting old plots and storylines involves the usage of classic characters from the classic seasons (both Saban's and Disney's) and that means Saban would have to open a giant money bag (especially for some of the MM cast members), so I would'n exactly count PR canon as "fixable". The only true way to "fix it" or "get it back on the track" is for every fan to just write their own versions of the TV series (for those that truly desire it and are true fans of the TV show and the franchise). Which is something that I'll be contributing to on my PR-based board once it launches. If not anything else, it could offer a decent closure to the PR canon issue-based discussions and a chance for those fans to move on to other topics about the franchise.

    PRE Update and Clubs!

    Nice updates, it's necessary to keep the board up-to-date. I'm actually thinking about bringing one of my old PR boards back, but in a new fashion.

    The Problems With Power Rangers Continuity

    For me, Power Rangers ended with RPM. I consider everything from Samurai onwards to be made for a new target audience. Seriously, no-one is going to make a TV show for 20-year old or 30-year old people (or older) who grew up watching it and became fans some 20 years ago. That's why I think that us, older fans should just keep the classic Saban and the Disney seasons close to our hearts and minds and just pass the torch to the new audience members. Life goes on and new shows come along the way whenever television programming is in question.
  11. Well, Super Sentai has been getting weirder and weirder with their Ranger suit designs lately. I have seen some Kyuranger clips on YouTube and the suit designs look wired, plus each Ranger in that season has a different Ranger name as if they belonged to several different Ranger teams. It's strange. The Sentai producers had had enormous success with Shinkenger, then with Gokaiger and then some other seasons that were obviously made with just their own audience in mind. It's clear they are sticking with that concept. And with Lynn being in charge of the writing/producing for Power Rangers, I think we just might see Super Sentai and Power Rangers go separate ways soon, because both are trying to be original and both are trying to tell a story with a theme that might work with/for their individual audiences. If Saban went for Go-Busters, I say that's great. Go-Busters was a great season and a great follow-up to Gokaiger. Plus it did some PR nodding. I wonder how they are going to adopt the Buddyloids since they played a major role in that Sentai season. It'd be nice if they left Beet J Stag in. We could finally see the first robot Ranger in action during a whole season, instead of just 1 episode.

    The future of Power Rangers

    Going back to the seasons being tied together better might require Saban to bring out more money and that's not happening. MMPR had 60, 52 and 43 episodes in its individual seasons, Zeo had 50 and so on. Anything from Lightspeed to Wild Force had 40 episodes and anything NZ-produced under Disney was also a single-year season. So to get the seasons tied together better, PR would need to go back to single year season format, which means the series would either need to give up the 40 episodes format and go back to the 32 episode format in order to ensure better continuity connections and the team-up episodes between the current and previous year's team. That's not happening either because so far, the Nickelodeon contract has been working for Saban pretty well. The team-up spot has been taken over by the "Super" part of the seasons. It makes the show more affordable to produce. Plus there's Nick's "20 episodes per season" rule. So unless Saban finds another network which would be a good outlet for Power Rangers that would allow for the show to go back to a single-year season format, I don't see continuity being maintained, at least not the way it used to be. But that's also something called "Clash of the Red Rangers" and "Legendary Battle", which are both MINI CROSSOVERS, but it's still better than nothing.

    Introduce yourself!

    Welcome back, PRE! mihandj/mnikolic from the old board here - who stayed trough all the vB/IPB form software changes, even though most of them - at least for me - were always a surprise and even many versions of PRE, like OddEmpire and Henshin Empire. I wish for PRE that it gets a 100th member soon, and after that, we'll see... All the best!

    Pr Mess Ups With Sentai Footage

    Actually,all 5 rangers got their Thunderzords in ''The Mutiny,Part III'' after Alpha located the remainings of the original Dinozords after Lord Zedd stripped them of their powers. Thunderzords were only introduced in ''The Mutiny,Part II''. If Jason would have gotten the Red Dragon Thunderzord in ''The Mutiny,Part III'' and other Rangers wouldn't have gotten theirs,they wouldn't be able to form the Thunder Megazord in the same episode. I think you got this one totally wrong...
