awesome, but I have to say that Super Sentai is much better than the Western counterparts, it was way more depth, it is more darker.

An aversion to that is RPM vs. Go-onger. Go-onger featured cartoonish-looking Zords who talked, and the monsters would often sing and dance and give melodramatic monologues in the heat of battle. RPM did away with this, monster never sang or dance and, in fact, rarely ever spoke, (Battles were over quick as a result) and neither did the Zords. They also question why the Zords have "big googly anime eyes" at one point. Also, I'm not certain if Go-onger took place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Admittedly, I watched the Power Rangers sets for a good while even though I was well outside the target demographic. :-$ Watched from the beginning up through Turbo, dropped out after in space, but came back for Lost Galaxy and lightspeed rescue. Never really got back into it after that.

I have to look through my storage, but I do have the Thunderzord, NinjaZord, and ShogunZord sets in my possession.
Next up on Pimp My Jeager.

Go-onger takes place on present-day day earth. A couple errors/freedoms were taken with Zords btw:

- The Shark Spinner is actually a killer whale or orca whale, as the tail fin is horizontal instead of vertical like on all fish, including sharks.
- The Falcon Copter is, get this, based on a chicken. This is referenced in the series, so it's probably intentional.

Not the first time different animals were used between Sentai and Power Rangers. Look at Dairanger and PR Season 2:

- The Unicorn Thunderzord is actually a Pegasus
- The Griffin Thunderzord is really a Kirin, or Chinese Unicorn, or Golden Dragon
- The Lion Thunderzord is more akin to a Shisa, guardian liondogs you often see in temples.
- To "top" it off, the Dragozord in Dino Thunder is a Tupuxuara.

"If you try to please everyone, nobody will like it" - a very wise guy.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

OH YEAH!

Caught the Dynaman series on USA, curious becuse it reminded me of Voltron, hooked because of how funny it was. When MMPR came out I thought it looked awfully familiar (and I developed an instant crush on Trini). Watched regularly until early Lost Galaxy, got regular again with Lightspeed Rescue through Dinothunder. Missed most of SPD because I could never find it on the TV. Watched Mystic Force and Operation Overdrive, missed a lot of Jungle Furry and RPM because it kept getting preempted on the local ABC station. Was throughly disgusted with the "re-imaging" Disney did with MMPR season one and glad the new series is back in Saban's hands and on a different network and that Bulk is back.

Started Super Sentai with Boukenger and have kept up pretty well, though I'm behind on Goseiger right now. Also went back and have seen all of Magiranger, some Megaranger, Zyuranger, Dairanger, Kakuranger, and a number of the team up movies.

The Hurricanger/Gaoranger team up was neat, the scene where the Gaoshark and Gaotiger form the arms of the Hurricanger mecha works with the toys, even the ones released in the U.S.

I'm hoping with Saban back in charge the toys will once again be straight imports of the Japanese counterparts instead of the watered down versions we've been getting since Operation Overdrive.

Dude, you just made my day. I present you with the ceremonial Cookie given to bearers of good news. Be careful with it, though, it's nearly identical to the one we give to bearers of bad news, and I am horribly disorganized when it comes to cookies.

Also, why is it Xandred, the big bad for the season, looks almost exactly like a Dremora from Elder Scroll IV: Oblivion? Dare to compare.

That figure is sweet. I bought it for sheer nostalgia. It's like my slimmed down original.

I own every single Megazord from the first season all the way to Space. I got out of the series though when they killed off Zordon.

I came back for Dino Thunder though cause my all time favorite Power Ranger Tommy Oliver came back.

Now I want to watch RPM Shadowman. If it's as good as you say then I will be all over it.

agreed, I thought the new release of the original MMPR Megazord, eventhough not as big as the original one, the stickers on it are more TV accurate
