    It's funny to realize that until a month ago I have been ignoring the Power Rangers franchise My whole life. A month ago I wouldn't have imagined writing about the Power Rangers. One day I was surfing the Internet minding My own business when I stumbled across this image. upload_2016-7-20_0-15-5.jpeg
    Right away I realized that these were Power Rangers but way cooler looking so I decided to investigate.
    So apparently on March 23rd next Year The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are getting a face lift. It's amazing how one photo can not only upset die hard Power Rangers fans but also catch the interest of those who previously wanted nothing to do with Power Rangers (like me). It's this photo that has made me want to go back to this Franchises origin and catch up with the 20+ Years of Power Ranger's existence. I for one am looking forward to another sci-fi story to soak in. I just hope it's good.

    Well let me tell you that you are not alone out there my friend cause I too also like the Power Rangers and I was pummped as well when I saw the news. Though I am not a super hardcore fan that has seen every single series, from time to time I sit down and watch the Power Rangers and have some fun. I had been disconnected for a LONG time but I recently have been enjoying Dino Thunder and have been surprised at how the show has evolved. From a show that featured a funky looking robot that looked like a guy in a cardboard suit that made firecracker type explosions:

    To this:

    The Power Ranger really have some good things going for them! Sure the show is still mainly aimed for kids and it has some incredibly crazy and goofy looking villains

    And the Zord is STILL just a guy in a suit for most of the time (even if it's a way cooler one), the show is still fun to watch and it's really cool that the Rangers are coming back to the big screen with such an awesome look. Any idea who the bad guy will be? It would be awesome if it was a new version of Lord Zedd who was one of my all time favorite Ranger villains (minus the Rita love thing) of all time!

    Like I said Above the photo That photo was Concept Art, that might not be what the Rad Ranger's Zord will even look like.

    But it makes me think how the megazord's legs and arms and stuff won't shatter the cockpits if they are damaged and the logistics of them walking if ONE zzord is that big

    Also in the tv show you rarely saw the Zords fight next to trees or buildings, mostly in an open field (though I think I saw a Megazord battle around buildings)

    Looks better than the T-rex-ish looking crap that Michael Bay forced on us.. That is how Grimlock should have looked. Instead we got this.

    How True, The Dinobots looked awful in that movie.

    They just released photos of the Power Rangers Helmets and Power Coins at Comic-Con:
