Maybe, though there are no dragons so far :P
Who really cares what Gekiranger will be called when its turned into a PR season, lets just enjoy it for now.

I did watch some of the PR shows, most noticeably MMPR, Turbo, Zeo, Lightspeed Rescue and SPD

I did read on the internet that since PR has always been made by Toei, some of the staff who worked on transformers, designed most of the zords. That would explain why some of the later Megazords and Zords resembled the likes of Trypticon, Predaking, the Dinobots and Defensor

To clarify: Toei makes the Super Sentai shows Power Rangers is based on, Bandai Japan makes the toys. Companies do look at eachother from time to time though.

Yup, the Dragonzord was quite awesome:

Who doesn't love a mechanical dragon that shoots missiles from it's fingertips? And I agree, after the In Soace season, I lost interest yet kept watching it. Most of the post MMPR era series were okay, but would never be the same as the first, the best, the original. I think the overdid it w/evil rangers, & put too much dependance on the zords, plus there were way too many zords. I liked it when there were usually 7 that formed the Ultrazord when needed & then annihilated the monster. I've also begun to watch Zyuranger on Youtube & it's not bad at all. Saw the season finale & thought it was pretty good. What's great about the Sentai is that it can be more violent & look more menacing. *cough* Lokar/Dai Satan *cough*


Ah yes, the Dragonzord. Always wanted it when I was a kid, and I distinctly remember one time my parents said they would buy it for me, I looked around several different stores, and couldn't find it :( . Having resemblence to Mecha-Godzilla and green being my favorite color also contributed as to why it was one of my favorite Zords in the show.

I also lost interest around Power Rangers in Space. Think I saw the first couple episodes or so, and just kinda forgot about it. I would also have been about 12 or 13 when it came out, so that's probably also why I lost interest. I still have a nastalgia for the original series though, but I just can't get into the newer stuff.

Now the Japanese Sentai stuff might be something I'd get into, cause I feel that things are always better in there original format.

I (for some reason) have seen every form of PR since MMPR except for PR: Mystic Force. The best is MMPR

Eh. I always loved the original Megazord, where the formation sequence was actually good, as were all Pre-CGI Megazord formations.

*recalls being lucky to find a Dragonzord at a KB during season 3 and how was even luckier to get the original Megazord during year 1*

If it's any compensaiton dude, I never could get Titanus.

Anywho. I liked PR until the end of ZEO. The I lost interest. Right when Billy and Jason left for good. The team I liked best (the orignals) was completely gone. Yes Tommy was there but he wasn't of the original five. I recall the early years, trying to find all those toys and they didn't become commonplace until Christmas of 94 (when season 2 was airing).

I do miss those days but looking at them in PRG, it just doesn't feel the same anymore.

Power Rangers was great, up until the point where Billy was replaced by that kid. By that point, most of the original characters were gone, and I lost interest. I never got much into the later series, but I saw some of SPD and quite liked it.(it didn't hurt that there were a few attractive females on the show)

I recently found The Movie at Wal-Mart on dvd. It was in the toy section with TF Armada and Energon dvds, and only cost 5 bucks! Me and the Mrs. had a blast watching it. I really wish they would release season sets of MMPR though.

I also still bump the song "Call The 5-4-1" on my ipod quite often.

In case anyone wants to know, Lesson two of Gekiranger is online at YouTube.
This is shaping up to be a really good series so far.

I watched that on Youtube & it was hilarious. They had almost eveything from the MMPR pilot, including Zordon, Alpha, & even Rita. It was pretty funny. They all have emo powers & they fight the Hoodie Patrol. Good funny spoof if you need a laugh.

I just went and watched it. I'm not emo and never will be, but it just rocked.

Very well done!
