More Power Rangers Samurai Stuff: Parades, Floats, and the greatest Panel EVER.

Hey, don’t be fooled by shiny specials, this week has practically been dedicated to all things Power Rangers. As proof, we have video of the Power Rangers Samurai in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, along with a few photos, a new design for a Tournament of Roses Parade float, and video from the Tsuyoshi Nonaka Panel at the Pacific Media Expo (PMX) talking about the desings for the Mega Mode figures. Let’s get this Samurai celebration started!

First, for those of you who didn’t catch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this year, here’s the Power Rangers Samurai’s official appearance in the parade:

And here’s a small gallery for you:

Who doesn’t like a little Ranger live-action show? And the little affair is fine, but it could have been really jazzed up with a float like this:

Yes, this float will be created and submitted to the 123rd Annual Tournament Of Roses Parade by Namco Bandai, and will feature all six Rangers standing amongst their zords and the Samurai Megazord, the float itself being made with precisely arranged flowers and organic materials. Just a little over-the-top promotion for the Wii game.

And finally, we have a video from the PMX featuring the Tsuyoshi Nonaka Panel, and during this panel they reveal some secrets behind the design of the Mega Mode figures, including:

  • That the “Battilized” Ranger figure would appear in the show
  • That the ninja/wrestler-style masks were originally included in the design because they had no idea who would be on the final cast, and Saban just decided to incorporate the masks into the toys
  • That the Mega Mode was partly inspired by the suit designs from the MMPR Movie
  • And that they usually use these kinds of designs mainly with Kamen Rider

Check out the panel video here (for the stuff about the PRS Mega Mode, skip ahead to about 8:47):

And that should be everything Power Rangers-related for now. If anything else pops up, I’ll let you know!

    thank you for the emails :D

      Okay, I didn’t send you any emails Alexa. Seriously, I would be very cautious about what may be in or on whatever emails were sent to you. You never know who might have sent them. And let me just say again that they’ve postponed auditions until next Spring, so I don’t know who you’re getting this stuff for (and you can be honest if you’re just looking for yourself, no judgements here), but just keep that in mind. Mostly because the casting people could change their minds and go a different direction entirely by then.

      And just a little advice: never post your real e-mail address in a comment on a random website. That’s a great way to fill your inbox with spam and junk e-mails. Also, don’t mention the fact that you’re a 9 year-old girl. Not my job to explain why, but let’s just say that some really bad people could try to trick you into doing something you know you shouldn’t. Just be careful who you trust on the internet.

      Just lookin’ out for my readers!
