Hey, you know how you wanted to spend the next 15 minutes watching a Norwegian metal singer belting out every Power Rangers theme song from the past 20 years? No? Well, too bad, because that's what we're doing, and it's going to be awesome.
The singer in question is PelleK, who's been getting attention lately for his energetic, soaring cover songs like Frozen's "Let It Go" and Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball," but since those songs aren't about teenagers with attitude fighting monsters in a giant robot, I'm comfortable in declaring that nobody cares about them. This, however, is fantastic -- and considering that he sings every song from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers all the way up to Power Rangers Super Megaforce in one continuous shot, it's actually really impressive, too. Check out the full video below!
Following the successes of its G.I. Joe and Transformers 3" blindbox minifigure series, The Loyal Subjects hit Toy Fair 2014 with morphenomenal 3D-printed Mighty Moprhin Power Rangers figures and corresponding removable helmet prototypes.
Saban's localization of Toei's Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, Power Rangers Super Megaforce, finally kicked off on Nickelodeon this past weekend, and Bandai was celebrating the premiere in a big way at Toy Fair 2014. The core component of the line, of course, is Ranger Keys -- the tiny totems of every Power Ranger's abilities that the Super Megaforce crew use to transform into any Ranger from history -- but the team's default pirate-themed gear was also prominently displayed. Classic Mighty Morphin reissues were also on display, including the Legendary Dragonzord and Titanus the Carrierzord. You can see all of the upcoming action figures, Zords, roleplay/costume toys and of course Ranger Keys, after the cut.
Following its Power Rangers Super Megaforce localization of Toei's Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger series, Saban will return to the dinosaur motif that made Mighty Morphin Power Rangers a huge hit in America back in 1993. According to USA Today, in 2015 Power Rangers Dino Charge will debut on Nickelodeon, meaning that Saban will skip the spy-themed 36th Japanese Sentai Series known as Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters in favor of a show with more humor, more rangers and a lot more dinos.
Before Papercutz started telling new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book stories (in addition to its recent Power Rangers Samurai and Power Rangers Megaforce offerings), the franchise spent most of the past two decades bouncing between Hamilton Comics, Marvel Comics, Disney and even -- in a glorious style lampooned by the official Super Sentai parody series Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger -- at Image Comics. Depending on how much nostalgia you can muster, your enjoyment of these various 1990s releases as pure comics will... vary, to say the least. However, thanks to the official Official Power Rangers Facebook page, you can read some particularly wild short stories from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Magazine circa 1994-1996 by Paul Kirchner and others.
Fans will finally be able to assemble the full Mighty Morphin Power Rangers team in S.H. Figuarts form this summer with the official arrival of the Yellow Ranger. Previously showcased (alongside her male counterpart from Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger) at conventions through 2013, the Yellow Ranger will sport all kinds of articulation and stand roughly 6" tall.
When you think about ancient Egyptian superheroes, there aren't a whole lot that come to mind. Apocalypse was around back then, right? And presumably there was some version of Moon Knight running around before the Fist of Khonshu was a dude who hung out with a French helicopter pilot, but really, that's all that comes to mind off the top of my head. But what if... what if... there were more?
That is the question that artist Josh Ln has answered in a series of prints called "Hero-Glyphics" that he "excavated and restored," presumably from a pyramid that was just full of pitfalls and tripwires connected to poison arrows. Check 'em bout below to see hieroglyphic-style reimaginings of some of our favorite characters! And also Kick Ass.
As you might already know from the constant chatter about the Power Rangers and Kamen Rider, we here at ComicsAlliance are pretty big fans of Japanese tokusatsu. Something about those live-action shows where teenagers with attitude transform to kick monsters and summon giant robots just speak to us on a fundamental level. That said, the actual behind-the-scenes origins of the franchises is even more interesting than the stuff that makes it on the screen.
It's a complicated story, but thankfully, the folks at ToyBountyHunters have decided to break it down for us. In the first two parts of It's Henshin Time, their multi-part examination of the history of Super Sentai and its American counterpart, they get into the origins of the franchise, starting with creator and CA favorite ShotaroIshinomori and a look at Kamen Rider and the first two (and a half) installments of the Sentai franchise. It's interesting stuff, so check out the videos below!
Following the current season of the dance/gun/dinosaur-themed Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, Toei will launch its 38th Super Sentai series, Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger. It's all about trains! Train track helmets, railroad crossing chest motifs, a giant combined train mech known as the TokkyuOh, electronic train ticket device morphers called Tokkyu Chargers -- this show looks like it's going to be the right kind off the rails.
Knowing what to buy anyone during the holidays can make for a pretty dicey season of giving. But toy collectors with discerning tastes? That's usually gift card territory.
