Review: Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #10 and #11 from BOOM! Studios

Editor’s Note: If you haven’t read the comic and like the element of surprise, STOP. Do not read any further! Spoilers are ahead!

The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers ongoing comic book series from BOOM! Studios is entering what could be deemed its second phase. Having dealt with Rita Repulsa’s dangerous new ally, Black Dragon, the series could have moved on to a new threat for our team. Instead, writer Kyle Higgins has pivoted slightly to the right and added a new layer of intrigue. It turns out the previous nine issues have only been the groundwork for a far more dystopian tale.

Reviews on Power Rangers Movie Toys: 5-in-1 Megazord, Movie Team, and Movie Morpher

The new Power Rangers movie is only two months away and that means it’s time for a new round of merchandise. Bandai America is here with their offerings for the film. First up is the largest megazord in Power Rangers toy history. Retailing at $19.99 for each individual zord ($39.99 for Jason’s tyrannosaurus) you can build the Movie Megazord. However, Toys “R” Us has an exclusive offer that packs in all five zords at a twenty dollar savings.

Also available is the basic line of five inch action figures. I review the Target exclusive, metallic five pack of the rangers along with Goldar and Alpha 5. Each figure clocks in $9.99 a pop and Goldar is free in the collector’s pack.

Finally, check out the movie exclusive Power Morpher for $29.99 complete with the five ranger coins. You first saw the Red Ranger coin in my review of the New York Comic Con exclusive Legacy version of the movie figure. Check out all of these Power Rangers movie-related reviews and much more at my YouTube channel Captain Subpar’s Toy Reviews. There you will find reviews for the Legacy line, Super Sentai reviews, and an assortment of other unboxing videos.

“Power Rangers: Legacy Wars” Mobile Game Coming March 2017

nWay’s Power Rangers movie tie-in title has been revealed: Power Rangers: Legacy Wars!

GameSpot describes the game as follows:

Called Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, it’s a multiplayer fighting game that will feature villains from the long-running TV series. The characters seen in-game will be based on the versions seen in the upcoming Power Rangers film.

But Jason Bischoff (Director of Global Consumer Products for Power Rangers & Saban Brands) corrects Gamespot:


Power Rangers: Legacy Wars launches on both Android and iOS operating systems in March 2017.

“Blood Punch”: RPM Rangers Die Trying, Again

As a collective whole, the cast of Power Rangers RPM is undoubtedly one of the most talented ensembles ever to be squeezed into butt-hugging spandex. From Eka Darville’s recurring stint on shows like “Empire” and “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” to Rose McIver’s starring role as the title hero in “iZombie”, this bunch has talent for days. It was this thought that took me into Blood Punch, the decidedly not-suitable-for-Nickelodeon horror comedy about a love triangle gone cray-cray in the woods.

Filled to the brim with RPM alums, would my affection for these young adults with attitude be affirmed through this twisted affair, or would it prove to be, as with the film’s central characters, a seemingly endless nightmare? Climb aboard the dimension-hopping train as we chug along through a spoiler-filled review, and pray that our sanity doesn’t get off at the wrong stop.
