Childhood gives you rose-tinted glasses about a lot of things, not least of which is the role toys played on your purchase decisions growing up. I can remember having a large collection of action figures from movies like Aliens and Batman and using them to recreate some of my favorite moments from the movie; if you had asked me then, I would have said that toys were only for playing, never imagining that the toy commercials on TV were probably what spiked my interest in the movies to begin with

In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
This week's selection of the best cosplay ever includes Garnet, Mars Attacks, Blastoise, Black Cat and more.
This week, we journey to 1997 for a story where the Rangers fight... A vampire! Yes, again.
This week, the Rangers fight their evil doppelgangers, except Jason, who will be represented by a very large and very angry shrimp. I don't get it either.
We’ve seen them in all their gear, but we haven’t seen the new Power Rangers with their cool visors down — until now. Yesterday, the official Power Rangers movie Twitter account unveiled a new motion poster that shows off the Power Rangers’ cool helmets and what they look like when they’re in full Ranger mode.
Adapted from Japan's long-running Super Sentai series, created by manga legend Shotaro Ishinomori, the Power Rangers combined the giant robots and monsters of their Japanese counterpart with a completely different set of secret identities and problems, and became a pop cultural phenomenon.
This week, Tommy keeps accidentally doing karate when he's trying to do football! You know, teen problems.
When DC and IDW published Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles earlier this year, I honestly thought that DC Comics had hit the apex of putting out crossovers that fans have been wanting since at least 1993. It turns out that I was wrong, because in January, DC and Boom Studios are teaming up for Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a six-issue mini-series in which Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Green Lantern and the Flash team up with Angel Grove's favorite Teenagers With Attitudes for an all-new adventure.
Last week, NYCC gave us our first official look at the new Power Rangers movie: five teens happen upon alien artifacts that give them super ninja powers, which they must use to fight off evil. It all looks pretty Power Rangers-y, but also very serious. It’s the dark and gritty Power Rangers reboot nobody was asking for, but we’re getting one anyway. Luckily, we have YouTube, and an evil genius with enough time on their hands to recut the new trailer with footage from the original show.
I am an adult, and that means that if I want to, I can spend a very large amount of money on a high-end metal action figure of Daizyuzin, the gestalt robot better known to American audiences as the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Megazord. Unfortunately, that also means that I have a lot of other things to spend money on --- like, say, food, or my home --- and today, that's something I need to remind myself of a lot. Because today, Bandai has released some high quality images of the next entry in the Soul of Chogokin line.
As I watched the Power Rangers teaser yesterday in line at a Dunkin’ Donuts in a highway reststop (VIVA LE CINEMA!), I thought to myself “Man, this really doesn’t look like Power Rangers, but it really looks like Chronicle,” the 2012 film about a trio of high school kids who discover a strange object underground and gain superpowers. Although this Power Rangers still has costumes and big transforming robots and stuff, none of that is in this first teaser. Instead it’s about ... a group of school kids who discover a strange object underground and gain superpowers. Weird.
