    Power Rangers Realm

    As of now, I'm almost done with the following: forum layout (categories & forums & sub-forums) Board Wrappers (codes) This is the list of the things which still need to be done: Forum Seassonial Skins (1 skin for the representation of every season) Forever Ranger Skins (based on the MMPR suits color scheme - Black, Pink, Blue, Yellow and Red) 6th Ranger Skins (Green, Silver, Black, White, Combo Rangers, color variations included) Creating a test board for some code & skin testing. Going trough the Admin CP's every setting and to put the best system & board settings in place. Member Groups Re-Structure (new staff concept & system) A lot of work remains to be done and October's already started. I'll post when I'm done with setting the forum layout and the board wrappers. Which should be sometime around next weekend (GMT+1 Time Zone). Unofficially - I'm also thinking of doing a beta testing for Power Rangers Realm. I'm still looking for 2 Administrators and 2 Moderators - all of who, besides getting to be involved in the building of the board - will get to see its development in progress.

    Power Rangers Realm

    Power Rangers Realm is coming back this December! Just in time for the Hasbro Era of Power Rangers, there will be a new kind of PR board on the Internet! But before the opening, the board needs to be set up the right way. So I'm posting this thread for those who would be willing to give good and constructive feedback for the comeback of Power Rangers Realm. What would you want to see of a PR-based boards that isn't yet on any other? My goal is to make a one-of-a-kind website. I already have a base forum structure set, but it is no different from the one used on, for example, here on RangerCrew. Feel free to leave your suggestions in this thread or via PM. I'm also available on RangerCrew (I'm mnikolic over there). In addition, if you have forum admin experience and know how to add forum categories, forums and set forum permissions and member groups settings and if you are familiar with Jcink, I can pre-register you with the username and the e-mail you want (to send via PM). Also, if you are interested in taking a closer look as a regular member, pre-registrations are now open. I've already got some ideas, and one of them is to create an index of all common Power Ranger topics. The primary focus of the board will be just Power Rangers at first, and depending on how it all works out, Super Sentai sections will be added as well. The board's address is https://powerrangersrealm.jcink.net/index.php. See you there!
  3. From left to right (on the left fence): Gemma (Ranger Operator Series Silver) Gia (Megaforce Yellow) Rocky (Mighty Morhin' Red) T.J. (Space Blue) Trent (DinoThunder White) From left to right (on the right fence): Kat (Turbo Pink) Wes (Time Force Red) Tommy (Mighty Morphin' Green/White, Zeo Red, Black DinoThunder) Koda (Dino Charge Blue) Antonio (Samurai Gold) In the middle (from left to right): Sarah (Ninja Steel Pink) Calvin (Ninja Steel Yellow) Brody (Ninja Steel Red) Preston (Ninja Steel Blue) Hayley (Ninja Steel White) Levi (Ninja Steel Gold) I've got to say - that was an interesting choice of Veteran Rangers. The first 6 seasons and the first 4 Earth-based teams are represented (MMPR S1-2-3, Zeo, Turbo, Space). Of course, Lightspeed is skipped over once again. From the latter SE Power rangers season, only Wes is present. The Disney seasons are represented by Tommy, Trent and Gemma. It would have been kind of cool if they had brought someone from Ninja Storm, since this was a Ninja-based season - yet another missed opportunity. Any Ranger from that season would've fit in here perfectly. Neo-Saban Rangers: Antonio, Gia, Koda. Another letdown was the quick-morph scene. Seriously, couldn't they just throw in a version of Adam's morphing sequence from OAR for Rocky and Tommy? Or is that present in the extended version? However, I didn't expect the Falconzord to return, but it was nice to see that Zord again. Plus it made sense using it since it's a Ninja Zord. The arrow finish was nicely done, I guess it was easier for the production team to do that instead of having the Falconzord using its cannons to fire at Draven. Hasbro - MM Dragonzord for the 30th anniversary episode, please! Thank you.

    Power Rangers Unworthy

    A possible scenario just came trough my mind: Everything takes place in exactly the same way it did like in the video. The only difference I'd make is to use the actual cast playing their characters from the series and showing them in multiple dimensions. So following the events in the video, the ranger murderer goes beyond Mighty Morphin' and starts going after other teams across all dimensions, including Zeo, Turbo2, Space and all the Ranger teams beyond that season. He even gets the RPM and the Dino Charge Rangers. Somehow, the Time Force Rangers (including Wes and Eric) manage to bypass the encounter with the ranger murderer (the 4 TF Rangers arrived from the future for that reason, to be with their two friends) in the main PR dimension. Eventually, the ranger murderer catches up with them and kills Jen, Katie, Lucas, Trip and Eric. Nadira and Ransik, who accompanied the 4 from the future also can't strike even a little bit of luck. Wes starts traveling trough different dimensions, this time all alone, however, the ranger murderer somehow manages to follow him. The chase drags on and on until Wes accidentally finds a more modern version of the Timeship, secretly hidden by the main-dimension Jen, Katie, Lucas and Trip in another dimension. Wes manages to board the ship without the ranger murderer being able to follow him in it. In the ship's database, Wes finds a message by Alex and his 4 deceased friends, saying that he is the Universe's only hope to turn back the clock and stop some events from taking place. Later, Wes watches a video, which appears to have been secretly filmed by Jen. It is a video of the ranger murderer killing the S.P.D. Rangers. From the hot discussion between them and their foe, Wes finds out that he needs to go back to Lord Drakkon's dimension and stop Tommy Oliver from becoming the Lord and betraying the Rangers and the Morphin' Grid. However, that is easier said than done, since he's all alone and due to him using the dimensional portal technology a lot, he's made the Morphin' Grid too unstable for doing any morphing. Due to food & drink stock in the ship he is able to survive for a few days, trying to figure out how to outsmart the Ranger murderer and to bring the Tommy from Drakkon's dimension to justice. He goes back to re-watch the clip of the S.P.D. Rangers being murdered and he finally spots a direct message from Jen to him - she asks him to ask Doggie Cruger for help, who is also hiding in the S.P.D.'s base, surrounded by the shielding technology of Time Force. Wes finally figures out how to get back to the main Ranger dimension. Despite the fact that no-one seems to be following him any more, he can't let his guard down. Once in the main Ranger Universe, he travelers to the time of the S.P.D. Rangers and recruits Doggie Cruger to help him. Somehow, Sam and Kat had survived their attacks. Wes takes his dimensional controller and connects him to the Timeship's computer systems, thus allowing them to instantly travel between different time periods in different dimensions. They go straight to Lord Drakkon's dimension and try to talk to Tommy before he puts his plan into motion, but he chooses not to listen to them. He summons his soldiers instead and captures the four. However, a group of his soldiers decides to betray their boss and help the 4 Rangers instead. They take them to a secret location, where they find another Tommy - his clone that Tommy left in Colonial Angel Grove. Tom reveals that he was captured to because he was mistaken for the real Tommy from the main PR dimension. Now, as a team of 5 people working with the soldiers, they come up with a plan on how to bring Tommy down. The soldiers reveal that the Morphin' Grid has the ability to create an evil Ranger of its own if one or few of the Rangers betray it and turn against those they had sworn to protect. However, before they can act, Lorn Drakkon, now ready to put his plan into the motion, locates the gang the confronts them. When the 4 Rangers are injured, the soldiers reveal their true identity: It's Jason, Trini, Zack, Billy, Kimberly, Adam, Rocky and Aisha from the Drakkon's Ranger universe. They all morph and manage to heal the wounds of the 4 injured Rangers and Tom. At that time, the ranger murderer appears after tracking down, Wes, Cruger, Sam and Kat. After seeing what the 5 are trying to do (Tom even without any Ranger power), the ranger murderer starts loosing its strength. While the 8 MM Rangers deal with the now weekend murderer, the Red Time Force, Shadow, Omega and Kat Rangers manage to weaken Lord Drakkon's power in a long, 24-hour long confrontation. With both of the villains now severely weakened, the Morphin' Grid starts repairing itself once again. The ranger murderer switches sides and faces Lord Drakkon, while trapping the 12 Rangers in a magnet-based force shield. The murderer captures Drakkon, who morphs back to Tommy, who is introduced to a horrifying vision. The ranger murderer disappears from existence completely. He sees the 12 Rangers being sucked by the shield's magnet powers and realizes what he had done. Tommy morphs into the Green Ranger and starts absorbing the shield's magnetic powers. But the shield's power is too much from him to take, and he looses his life in the process, along with his fellow soliders. The lives of the 12 Rangers are saved, who thank the 4 traveling ones for their help. Wes, Cruger, Sam and Kat return to the main PR dimension and to their own time periods. But only to find out that a lot had been changed. After finding out what could have happened, Tommy's confidence in being a Ranger is shaken. Wes visits him with his Ranger friends, the MM and the DT Rangers, who tell him that he's needed now more then ever - as a friend, as a parent, as a science teacher and as a Power Ranger. This leads into Time Force enforcing some ground rules and laws considering the Morphin' Grid, Ranger powers and the usage of Ranger fighting techniques/styles and technology across all dimensions and time periods in order to prevent Lord Drakkon ever coming back into existence. -------------------------------------------------- It's a good story, isn't it?

    Power Rangers Unworthy

    This would make an excellent spin-off. Lord Drakkon's existence causes the Morphing Grid to turn against the Rangers in every Ranger dimension, which results in the creation of the ranger murderer in the video, thus preventing Rangers from different dimension to warn each other and their own Zordon. I'd love to see how Time Force would have been involved in this and what would be Wes's role.

    August Update

    Let's hope Hasbro will eventually get some established actors/actresses who will eventually become the supporters of the franchise or if Hasbro manages to push some now to-be-cast members around following their role in Power Rangers, maybe it'll help the franchise as well. Maybe the show becoming union again will give the boost that the franchise needs. I mean, why not give a chance to those cast members who right now, because of the Union rules, can't appear in the show? I say bring them back and use their existing characters to wrap up some plots and storylines from the past. Then use the same cast members and give them new roles, since it's been confirmed that PR is a multi-verse series. Or just go the path where the union cast members show up in the series playing new roles. Start with that and then work their old characters in. There are a million possibilities on how to improve Power Rangers. The only problem may be... the finances and of course, even if the show goes union again, some actors/actresses STILL won't be willing to come back because of various professional and/or personal reasons. Of course, hiring an all union main cast would also help a lot. PRE needs a power boost, but that power boost can only come in the fandom expands and becomes stronger. Primarily, the show needs to get back on its old track - to the 40-episode per year format. Team-ups included. It needs to start doing original theme songs for each new season, needs to get good soundtracks to go along with a specific season's theme. It needs better writers and people who actually will care about it. Without that, PRE and other PR/Sentai-based sites/boards have no chance to even dream of remaining online in the long-term. The days of just adding new features, skins, content etc. have long since passed. I remember back in the day, you would do an update to PRE and even if it would be a small(er) one, the activity on the board would break the roof. Even old threads that would be inactive for a couple of months would get bumped although it would be against the forum rules back then. PRE needs that kind of activity and overall interest in it. However, everything depends on the franchise itself. It needs breakthrough plots, characters and storylines that will bring a complete overhaul to it. It needs to attract new audiences, audiences that will stick for at least the next decade, if not more. It'd be a good idea if PR went back to the primetime again. That would be a good start and I'm sure it'd help. Also, shorter breaks between episode batches of a singe season wouldn't be too much. Long story short: if the franchise returns to its regular shape, PRE and other PR/Sentai-based websites/boards have a chance. Otherwise, we can pretty much do what we want, but it won't be enough and it won't have the desired effect. If it doesn't have the desired effect, all we can do is close shop for good.

    August Update

    You did the right thing by removing the unecessary features. There's social media now, so Gallery isn't really needed anymore, except if you bring it back so members can share their experience with their favorite PR/Sentai cast members from all those events. Plus anyone can make millions of screen-shots from the TV show and the movies, not to mention that a lot of pictures featuring both PR and Sentai can already be found all over the internet. The same goes for the video sections, if PRE's members don't share their own videos with the cast or even the crew members in them, it makes no sense keeping those mods. Not sure about the cubs mod, I never used it. PRE needs to be put out there. It needs representatives and advertisers to go to Comic Cons and similar events. It needs to do Cast & Crew Interviews on-spot. Just advertising it on social media sites and other websites & forums is not enough anymore.
  8. I just wish they would've been able to find a way to make a full Goseiger adaptation first and do Gokaiger since it would give them the necessary time to get everyone they wanted on board for the Ranger cameos, license Ranger teams (as per JDF), get the movie footage rights for the 199 Hero Battle and just do a better anniversary season overall, with a mixture of footage from the movie itself and original footage for the LB itself. The Megaforce Rangers should've already been Veteran Rangers by the time the Legendary Battle took place and it should have been an entirely separate Ranger team in the Gokaiger suits leading the whole thing. Anyway, I'm going to give this anniversary episode a chance and if it's good, I'll find a way to watch the full Ninja (Super) Steel season and give it a try so I can make my own comparation between how Saban and Hasbro do certain things for the show and then, if Beast Morphers turns out good, maybe I'll give the franchise one last chance.

    The Hasbro Era

    If they manage to get the season splitting/Supering dropped and by the chance, turn Power Rangers back into its old self (at least back in its Disney-era form), I positive that the franchise will do good under them. But for the start, let's just hope that Hasbro gets the old 40-episode per season format back, because that's one of the more important things that Power Rangers has been missing out on for more than a decade. Not to mention that we've drastically fallen back from the Sentai, we are no longer just 1 season behind, plus we've skipped some and now we've gone back to adapt the season that was supposed to be adapted after (Super) Megaforce.
  10. So basicsally everything would be different, with only the Zeo Crystal and Dino Gems being the only things preserved from the original timeline, along with a MMPR/DT team member combo? That sounds cool. But I'd rather come up with a plot where Time Force would have to figure out who would be the members of versions of the Ranger teams prior to and after our Time Force season in the new timeline. The TF Rangers would manage to track them down before they're chosen and give them information and instructions on everything. Of course they would not be listened to, however, this would make Alex go really evil on everyone and try to kill every potential/future Ranger. After being successful of killing portions of various future/potential Ranger teams, the remainder of the potential/future Rangers eventually regroup and form an elite organization after a few of them witness the killing of the Time Force Rangers. Somehow they would get to the research of the killed "to-be" Rangers and the killed Time Force Rangers and figure out how to find & combine the Zeo Crystal and Dino Gem technologies together, which would give the 2 MMPR Rangers and 3 PRDT Rangers the powers that you mentioned, this enabling them to form the first official Power Ranger team since Alex had begun killing potential/future Power Rangers. Also, it'd be better to save the Ranger timeline pulling ability for the end of the story (as in for the final battle) against Alex and have a "Legendary Battle" type of ending, but better-executed. Just go with the available potential/future Rangers from the new timeline after Alex had destroyed Ninjor and all of the Power Coins, which would eventually include the Dragon and White Tiger Coins. I'd not change the rest.
  11. I like your idea. This should definitely get made into a separate multi-season spin-off. BTW, I'm also (albeit slowly) getting ideas for a PR's crossover with another franchise.

    Saban Brands is shutting down

    AlwaysARanger85 posted on Ranger Crew that Hasbro has plans for future PR movies (here's the link to the actual post). Looks like they are planning to take the franchise seriously, although the article itself does not say anything about the TV series.

    What are your favorite intros?

    My Top 10 - From top to bottom: 1. MMPR S1 with Tommy 2. MMPR S2 with original cast and with Tommy as either Green or White Ranger 3. RPM 4. Zeo 5. In Space 6. Lightspeed Rescue 7. Jungle Fury 8. Time Force 9. DinoThunder 10. SPD Mystic Force's Intro was good, but does not even begin to compare with what came before it. Overdrive's Intro was too rushed, especially towards the end of that season, when Disney tried to get as many shots to be a part of it as possible. RPM was a totally a different caliber of PR season, that's why I gave it spot no. #3 instead of the MMPR Intro with Kat. Oh and like you said, but with different words - Saban gets an "F" for the intros from Samurai onwards. Dino Charge tried to do something new and it does sound great, but enter Ninja Steel and there's another full "Go Go Power Rangers" re-hash.

    Saban Brands is shutting down

    As per this announcement, as a part of acquiring Power Rangers, Hasbro has acquired Saban Brands as well. 60 employees will be laid off due to the closure. As for the Saban Capital Group - that will still remain in operation. Current rights (Saban Brands - created or owned) Beetleborgs Cirque du Soleil Media Cubix Emojiville Kibaoh Klashers Masked Rider Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty VR Troopers Digimon (all seasons except Digimon Adventure tri and Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters.) Former rights (Saban Brands - created or owned) Sonic X (currently by Discotek Media) Power Rangers (currently by Hasbro) Glitter Force (currently by Toei Animation) Treehouse Detectives (currently by Hasbro) My Pet Monster purchased from American GreetingsTCFC, Inc. (currently by Hasbro) Popples purchased from American GreetingTCFC, Inc.[56] (currently by Hasbro) Luna Petunia (currently by Hasbro) Julius Jr. (currently by Hasbro) Saban Brands will be dissolving this Summer. However, Saban will still act as an consultant for the Power Rangers franchise. This news was already shared by other PR forums, such as PRO, RangerCrew and RangerBoard (I'm assuming, because I can't seem to get on it for some reason).

    Correcting the Power Rangers canon

    Unrealistically thinking: The only way (in my opinion) to correct the cannon is to create a season dedicated to correcting the cannon. Start the season with the plot of the various Power Rangers Multiverses being altered by a new powerful foe who wants to wipe the Power Rangers from existence and make sure the United Alliance of Evil (from PRiS) succeeds in conquering our Galaxy in all Multiverses. Establish that all the seasons (except R.P.M.) are in a single multiverse, which is later established to be the main one. Have a mentor-type of leader bring a new Power Ranger team together and later, bring in some Rangers from previous seasons (at least 1 PR cast main member from each season) to wrap up some long-running storylines and end the season with a proper version of Legendary Battle where the veteran Rangers actually give a crap about stuff rather than just standing in the crowd and look worried and alerted/alarmed. Maybe have the season show various versions of some Rangers in various Multiverses just to make the whole thing more interesting. Use the various Multiverses concept to fix some of the potholes from earlier seasons. Maybe even have various versions of the same Rangers present at the final battle against the main villain or selection of versions of the Ranger characters from every season from various Multiverses and the final episode(s) explore how they function in the final fight together. I say go all out and make the new LB episode a 2-hour movie all 199 Heroes movie, just without the Pre-Zyu and the core 5 Dairanger teams. Bring in Ninjor, Auric, Blue Centurion, original Magna Defender, Titanium Ranger, Sentinel Knight and Spirit Rangers in suit-only just for the heck of it (well, maybe have their original actors just do the ADR or just use the ADR from their own seasons). Have the Veteran Rangers actually aid the new PR team in their fight not just in the main Multiverse, but in others as well. Use the season's plot to bring Zordon back by pulling him out of another Multiverse and bringing him into ours for a couple of episodes. No Gosei/Tensou crap, no Overdrive Alpha, bring back the original, but an upgraded version of Alpha 5 too with a new voice actor. Then have the next season set in the main Multiverse and each other season in one of the other Multiverses. Realistically thinking: The show needs better writers, better composers, each new season needs to have an original theme song and catchy soundtrack music. Those problems need to be fixed first because the Power Rangers Franchise has given up its true identity and desperately needs to re-claim it. That will be the foundation for actually making any cannon corrections.
