In Space is a FAR cry Megaranger, so it's different enough to be called it's own show

Samurai though for example re-uses Shinkenger plots almost words for word (Save some sugar coating)

Though to my understanding their re-filming action scenes from Gokaiger to erase Goranger-Jetman out of the series.
Pity Jetman episode was boss as skreeonk.


It's going to be a while until they got to a Power Ranger-version of Gokaiger though, isn't it? Wasn't there another season of Super Sentai in between Shinkenger and Gokaiger? If so, do we know if they'll be making a Power Ranger-version of that first?

I would watch a Power Ranger-version of Gokaiger, but at this point in time, that feels like a fantasy that may or may not come true.


I've heard Goseiger will be glossed over so they can do Gokai when PR turns 20, an anniversary series for an anniversary series.
Toei just announced it was reshooting the opening scene a few days ago.


Oh wow, that's news to me!

That's great to hear. Can't wait to see where it'll lead.

Speaking of not knowing power rangers was based off of sentai I didn't know till recently beetleborgs was based off of Juukou B-fighter.

Oh, I never thought you were bullshitting me. When you said that they were re-filming the opening scene, I believed you. But thanks for the link, I appreciate it.

No not really. Unless the new definition of sick is "indifference."

From my understanding, Saban is doing with Goseiger what they did to Dairanger 20 years back. In Power Rangers: Super Samurai, it actually uses footage from Goseiger (they share the same main villain from my understanding) but keeps the Shinkenger suits. Since Super Samurai only has a run of about 20 episodes, they could easily start on the Gokaiger adaptation by the end of the year.

I am going to assume there's some collectors in here, so I got questions.

This guy's from Power Rangers in Space, right?

Obviously it's Jason Red Ranger, but what is this thing? It has no identifying markings.

Ia that second one a coin bank? I think I had one of those.

The first looks familiar, but I can't seem to place him.

No it's not a coin bank. That thought passed my mind but it isn't big enough and there's no slot anyway. I'm totally puzzled.

It looks as if maybe something can be inserted into his front fist. A toothbrush holder? Maybe a pencil holder?

At a quick glance, all I saw was "insert" and "fist." -_-

Ah, Trini... Kimberly was obviously supposed to be the "hot" one, but I can only really go for Trini.

I dunno why people always got all fussy about her being Asian and the Yellow Ranger. In Japan, ALL the Yellow Rangers are Asian.

I'm more bothered by the fact that in Ranger mode, she's a dude. Methinks Trini had more secrets than she was telling anybody.

I haven't seen a current incarnation of Super Sentai, so things may have changed due to American influence, but tradition since the early 70's has always been in Japanese Sentai (and even Anime with super robot teams i.e. Combattler V ", Voltez V,Golion aka Volron,etc...) They all follow the same basic formula of 4 males and 1 female on the team. Since Saban decided to try to make it more even (3 to 2) There would have to be 1 character that obviously didn't match up. The yellow would obviously mean a less feminite female, but I wouldn't take it anything beyond that. Japan does the same. Transformers "Beast Wars" had too many female characters for them, so they made at least 1 "Airazor" into a male to make it more marketable to Japanese kids target audiance.

The basic Sentai team is:

Leader (Male)
Rebel/Cool Guy (Male)
Strong Guy (Male)
Kid Genius (Male)
Token Girl.
and more recently the "6th" member usually an evil or rogue hero turned good (Male)

Not trying to be chauvinistic, thats just the ways its always been as far as I know. But again I think the last Super Sentai I saw was at least 10 years ago. Saban's influence may have changed the way things are done in Japan.
