If you think that, along the way, you're not going to fail... you're blind.

There's no one I've ever met, no matter how successful they are, who hasn't said they had their failures along the way.

I don't know about Shou, but what the english version of Kyuranger needs to do is adapt Garu as a member of Doggy Kruger's people.

So a direct adaptation of the one episode with Dekaranger and Gavan?

no, make it so Garu is really the same kind of alien and it's not a joke.

I think I would say to my daughters if they were to ask me this question... A shitpost is the greatest gift that you can give someone, the ultimate gift of giving and don't give it to someone lightly, that's what I would say.

By the way, Ninja Steel is back. Not much to say about this episode though aside from it introducing Levi's Zord (they also kept the cheeseburger morpher after all, it just functions as a camera/communicator in this series).

While this hasn't been the best season so far it's at least a step up from its Sentai counterpart in my opinion (though that's not exactly a high bar to clear).

"I always wanted to finish high school!" was kind of a sad way to end the episode. The ninja suits with the hoods and masks look pretty cool, though.

Cheeseburger morpher did that in Ninninjer, too, IIRC. He took selfies with the yokai he was fighting.

I know, only difference is it's not a morpher in the PR version (which makes me wonder why they bothered including it at all then).

The same could be asked about why they decided the sword couldn't be the Morpher but the thing that's three weapons in one can be.

I remember it being mentioned somewhere that they included it because there were too many scenes with it being used to take selfies so they just kept it in.

No he is still Zedd but I did once have some one ask me about how they spell it out loud and asked a couple of UK PR fans. They in fact go Zed-E-D-D

Making the shuriken the morpher would boost sales of the shuriken because the swords would sell well anyhow because they're swords.

So I managed to get a legacy Ninja Megazord at Barnes and Noble and I am hoping there are still clearance Falconzords at TRU next week ether on Mon or Sat when I can go up. I have a Dragonzord on the way so Now I just need to figure out how to get a Titanus without paying an arm and a leg for it now.

Oh my sweet summer child. That would take nothing short of a Toys R Us truck travelling through time from the past somehow bouncing a single box out of it into your lap and then going back in time where it belonged. They simply don't sell for any less than MSRP anywhere.

That part I get. I am just trying to avoid paying upward of $500+ for one. maybe in the range of $300-$400. or wait about a year and see what I can find at Power Morphicon.

Yeah. Wait for Power Morphicon. We have an awesome thrift shop near us that happened to have a Pyramidas zord with the box for $80. That's better than PMC and eBay prices from what I'm seeing. This same shop has a life sized Ninja Storm Red Ranger that talks when you press a button. If only it weren't $500.

So something possessed me to check out Super Mega Force on Netflix and the concept is pretty cool and the theme song kicks rear end when it's a remix of the original but lmao their morphers communicators are shaped exactly like their zordon and I know it's for toyetic reasons but it's hilarious how when they want to covertly communicate with a teammate as civilians they have to pull out this huge super conspicuous chunk of plastic shaped like a space moai man

We're only 10 episodes into Ninja Steel, why are they already recycling monsters? Overall that was a pretty mediocre episode at best, saved only by the reveal in the last few seconds.

Aiden's sudden appearance seemed way too convenient to me so I'm guessing they're going somewhere with this.

They're reusing monsters because Ninninger also reused monsters and they're kind of bound by what they have available to them.

True, I just didn't expect them to start doing it this soon (but we did get the Megazord fight that was cut out of said monster's first appearance for whatever reason though).

So for those who are interested, I just managed to snag a Titanus for $350 ($10 shipping included in that) off of ebay from a best offer on a $425 listing.
