More Details on Power Rangers Megaforce

The past few days have been a bit hectic with information and misinformation about Power Rangers Megaforce, so hopefully I can break it down for you with some commentary. Here we go:

1. Megaforce is using Goseiger for adaption because Saban isn’t skipping Sentai seasons. Why would they anyway? “Oh yes, let’s skip this entire season so that we can throw money out the window. No worries!” Gokaiger did make more sense for an anniversary season, but let’s be honest. The fans made this item more newsworthy than it really was suppose to be. I got caught up in the hype too because it was so “obvious” that Gokaiger was going to be used. It should have been more obvious to us that skipping seasons wouldn’t make financial and television production sense.

2. According to Rangercrew Media, Megaforce “will have an original story that is centered on five high-school teenagers. The concept sounds familar to the first season (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) [...], but the story will be completely new and original.” For example, “RoboKnight (placeholder name) will appear fairly early in the season.” As much as I’d like to believe that Megaforce will be different from the Sentai counterpart, I’ll believe it when I see it. We are still in the hype machine that is the Licensing Expo, to be fair.

3. Promotion for Power Rangers Megaforce will be in full swing starting with San Diego Comic-Con. Saban Brands will have a big presence there and at Power Morphicon with “MEGA” surprises and giveaways. (Yes, they said “MEGA”. No, I’m not making this up.) Megaforce will also be in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, so promotion for the new season will not be lacking. Disney could learn something.

It’s nice to see that Goseiger isn’t getting lost in the proberbial shuffle and btw, I Love these Helmets!

I’m guessing they’re changing up the Tensouder morpher. For some reason I can’t see them using the Tensouder as is. (hope I’m wrong.) As long as they keep the cards. I’ll be happy.

As long as they do change the story. Goseiger is the worst SS season. I’m not going to even bother watching PRM. If they foul up, and copy and paste. Like they did with Shinkenger.

I’ll be honest, I was in the group of people who wanted Gokaiger to come over here first. But I’m kinda hoping this brings Saban back into the Angel Grove groove of making the stories we love out of nothing but the power of cultural adaptation, good writing, and toyeticness!

I know this is just crazy talk, but if that had skipped over Goseiger to make Gokaiger the anniversary season, they could have always went back and used the footage from Goseiger for a future season. Skipping over it doesn’t have to mean not using it at all.

I myself so saw it being Goseiger, I mean why would you think they’d skip a Sentai Season? SERIOUSLY!? What sense would it make!? And I know alot of people hate Samurai, heck it seems like if something isnt done the way they want it, most people lose their minds over it, but seriously I loved Samurai and I’m gonna miss it, and btw I’ve seen Shinkenger and loved it too so I have no shame in admitting both were truly worth my time :D And I liked Goseiger myself, it was fantastic! And I welcome Megaforce into the power rangers history book with a big bright smile, and expect great things from it.

gothamninja394, I’m curious what Ranger/Sentai season you did not like?

I just wanted to know, since I’ve got plenty that I love, despite the fact that they’re not exactly what I expected or wanted. Samurai just doesn’t fall into that category.

WHY!? Why must they continuously use “force”… its getting old.

I hope they used GoseiGreen as part of the cast because he’s that type of ranger the you want to see more of, but never do. Can’t wait!

I agree with Smashkote with the name. They could have use “squad” or “guardians”. Force is a bit overused.
