 Since were talking different Saban properties, we can't forget their foray into original production with Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog!

 

 

I really liked that show, it was Saban's foray into a Power Rangers style show without the Sentai footage and using its own footage.

You've been here for four days.  What do you know about the Goldmine?

That's what they all say.  They "lurk", they finally join, they scantly post, then ramp up their posts until their tendencies get noticed, etc.

What if she's telling the truth? I'd feel bad to throw false accusations.

 

I know situations like this could go both ways. But that's what IP checks are for.

45 posts in three days is scant? I've been lurking since the days before pantone became colorwerx and I seem to recall Chris getting angry at the babe of the week thread turning into pornography.

Actually, in my CMQ-related Power Rangers fanfiction story or series, I had an original character by the name of Zothar as the team's main mentor, not Zordon, it seems.  I'd have to find as many of my related notes and story chapter as possible, though, to be sufficiently sure what I had in mind while I was doing most, if not all, of my related work to it, folks.  Perhaps sometime soon, I'll be able to figure those kinds of things out well enough, if I have to reimagine things related to it later, instead of using whatever I may still have available for such a story or series of stories.  Turtle Pilgrim out.

Not sure if this is the best place for fan fiction.  This discussion seems to be directed towards the subject of what is Power Rangers, not what could be.

Point taken.  But I still think we all have our favorite Power Rangers, and have other related thoughts about them and the franchise and the interconnected Super Sentai seasons/series, et cetera, just the same.  And we may wonder how things would be with different combinations of Rangers and/or Sentai Warriors on certain teams as well, of course.  Or different potential boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife-type pairings, as well.  Turtle Pilgrim out.

No, I don't have to.  I often close, or have closed, posts in that way, or in similar ways, when I have posted or do post on various message boards online before.  You just worry about yourself, not me, in terms of how certain posts are closed.  I have a right to close my posts any way I so choose, as long as I don't break any rules or laws in the process of doing so.  If you don't like it, then so be it, but I will not change who I am just to make you happy.  Ignore me or not, as you choose, but I will not let you rattle me, or anything, if I can possibly avoid it at all, sir or madam, as the case may be.  I do and will welcome your reasonable enough thoughts here, for sure, mind you, but I still will not be bullied into changing who I am for anyone, not even you.  You are not the owner or a moderator or anything except a member of this board, nor am I the owner or moderator or anything else other than a member of this board in like manner, so you have no say in how I choose to post, and I have no say in how you choose to post, generally, at least.  So just worry about yourself, not me, here.

 

Anyway, back to the topic of this particular thread, and that is Power Rangers.  So what are people's favorite seasons or series of Power Rangers, et cetera, and why?  And if you could mix up every Ranger and/or Sentai Warrior to make up teams, et cetera, other than what was ever shown on screen or in other forms of media, especially in light of the previous team-up episodes, or the movies, both pre-reboot and the current reboot, how might you each perhaps do so, if you could?  Just wondering, that's all.  Turtle Pilgrim out.

I'm thinking the Green Ranger. I see Zedd showing up in the third one.

Dean Israelite had this to say about the Mastodon having eight legs:

 

Quote

http://collider.com/power-rangers-dean-israelite-interview/

“The idea of the Zords is that they’re machines that take on the form of the most powerful organism on the planet. When these Zords came to Earth, dinosaurs reigned supreme, so they took on the mythology of these dinosaurs. That’s the mythology we put into the movie. The Zords are supposed to be inspired by those animals, not an actual literal version of them. We also looked at the Zord renderings in a 3D space, and how they move, and the Mastodon is so big that with added legs, it would just move better in a CG environment. The legs would make it a more nimble machine. It felt more practical. If you were an alien creating this machine, you’d want those added legs.”

 

It never bothered me that much to begin with, and to be honest this kind of makes sense. If you think about it, the original Mastodon Dinozord was shown to be kind of slow. And real life elephants aren't exactly the most agile creatures either. In the brief glimpses we've seen of it running in the trailers, it's clearly able to keep up with the other Zords. I think it works. Well, except for the fact that Mastadon and Sabertooth are mammals that came well after the dinosaur age but whatever I'm willing to suspend my disbelief because nostalgia and it's cool.

 

Also, the more I see of the new Megazord design, the more I like it. There are some subtle visual cues to the original which I really appreciate. It definitely looks better on screen and that dull grey toy that was revealed doesn't do it justice at all. It's still kind of hard to see how the Zords are going to combine into this thing as there's not a lot of visual references to go by except for the obvious Pterodactyl wings on the back, though I've also spotted the Sabertooth's front paws forming cockpits on the upper legs, and the Triceratops head crest forming armour on the knees. I think they're going to cheat a bit with the combination (kind of like how Age of Extinction Optimus Prime barely has any visible truck parts) but I also have a feeling that they're really going to play with the "morphing" aspect of the franchise.

 

This new TV spot gives us a better look at the Megazord:

Speaking of the Transformers, the new Megazord does look a little bit like Optimus Prime from the movies.

 

They don't all unite in one cockpit anymore. Hopefully, it will still use the Mega Sword & maybe the Mastodon head shield that would be nice.

So there is a YouTube video of how atleast the toys go together and it shows the shoulders arms and head are the Trex, torso and upper thigh area is the saber tooth. The triceratops and mastodon are each of the legs and the Petradon is obviously the wings.
