Power Rangers Ultrapost: Samurai are Super!

Hey, there’s been a lot of Power Ranger news that’s come out over the last month, and for some reason I keep missing it! So, I’m just going to take some of the biggest headlines from the past month or so and thow them all into one Gigantor post! And coming up first we have this new poster for the the new season of PRS, Power Rangers Super Samurai!:

Yep, next season, the “Super” mode will be officially incorporated into the series, including this new Super Mega Mode. And if I’m not mistaken, I can see a new enemy in the corner. No info yet on when the next season will start.

And this poster actually came from the Power Morphicon Facebook page, who also announced the official date for Power Morphicon 2012! This year, it will take place from August 17th-19th 2012 at the Pasadena Convention Center (same location as the last), and Registration is open for anyone interested.

Speaking of Pasadena, anyone who saw this year’s Tournament of Roses Parade (and not on ABC) might have caught a glimpse of the Power Rangers Samurai Video Game float. If not, you can check out this video from the HGTV coverage of the parade:

And here’s a nice gallery of pics:

And here’s a couple of behind-the-scenes videos, one of which includes Andre from BlackNerdComedy:

Now this next part, I don’t have a decent segway for, but it was still awesome.

Yep, this happened, for 48 hours on Nicktoons back on the 6th (January 2012), and I’m assuming it was awesome since I couldn’t watch it because we had downgrade our cable package literally the week of. My life sucks sometimes…

BTW they have been playing that on there regularly as well, so go check it out if you can! Because I can’t. 😦

Now let’s move onto some newer news thst came out while I was working on this ultra-post!

Mainly, Kimberly Crossman has been 100% CONFIRMED to play a future Red Ranger Role! YAY!! This confirmation via a recent video post on Carlos Pena’s YouTube Channel (Carlos Pena from Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush) where she comes on and outright says it, though she does keep us in the dark about the details. You can check out the whole video below (though I can’t guarantee you’ll be that impressed):

So yeah, there’s that. And then there’s this:

Yep, this is the cover of the latest issue of Hyper Hobby Magazine, which your going to see a lot of as I do more of these ultra-posts, and the portion of it that I want to cover here is this: while full translations of this are STILL not available, we can confirm that Toei did discuss the 20th Anniversary of Power Rangers, and those discussions included possibly re-shooting the Legend War scene from the opening of Go-Kaiger with teams from MMPR onward. Whether the 20th season of Power Rangers will be the Go-Kaiger adaption is anyone’s guess. But that’s still big news, though I wouldn’t expect any adaptions of the movies to be quite as spectacular as the Go-Kaiger movies have been so far.

And that should be about everything, barring nothing comes out in the next five minutes. If anything else pops up, I make no guarantees, but I’ll try to let you know.

Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan Rumors: Metal Heroes in the Legend War!

After the news of the confirmation of the Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan movie, we now have a new set of rumors that say that all of the Metal Heroes participated in the Legend War! Check them out below:

  • The movie starts with an opening narration that not only the 34 Super Sentai teams participated in the Legend War and fought the Zangyack armada. The 3 Space Sheriffs and the rest of the Metal Heroes participated as well. It is not sure if Hiroshi Watari will reprise his role as Den Iga/Sharivan in the movie. As for Dai Sawamura/Shaider‘s actor, Hiroshi Tsuburaya, he passed away years ago.
  • The original 3 B-Fighters are shown fighting Gormin. For some reason B-Fighter Kabuto is fighting alongside Janperson and Gun Gibson. SolBraver and Knight Fire are working hard saving lives and helping civilians escape.
  • Jealousitt, the 3 Gaiark Ministers and Shizuka of the Winds will appear in Gokaiger vs. Gavan. Their parts are only minor ones, just like the G3 Princess had in the Summer movie.
  • Some guy saw them filming a scene (could be for an ep in the TV series) where Jealousitt is in a fist fight with a dead Walz Gil (has one of those triangular cloths wrapped around his head signifying him being a ghost).

So, did the Metal Heroes lose their powers in the Legend War as well? And what role will Gavan play in this movie? And why all of these side characters? 0.o

Writers’ qualm: How Black Condor nearly didn’t make it into the Legend War.

Original Post: http://www.jefusion.com/2011/09/black-condor-didnt-appear-in-legend-war.html

Well, it looks like if it had been solely up to Go-Kaiger head writer Arakawa Naruhisa, then Black Condor of Jetman wouldn’t have appeared in the Legend War. Here’s a translation of text found on the Go-Kaiger main site:

The main writer for Gokaiger, Mr. Arakawa. The first ever Sentai series he wrote for was Jetman. during development stage, the one thing he went against to the very end was having Black Condor fight in the Legend War.

Utsumiya said, “I can’t understand why you can have AbareKiller & Dragon Ranger in it but not Black Condor” (for those who knew nothing about the older series, AbareKiller & Dragon Ranger were both dead near the end of their respective shows)

Arakawa replied, “I can’t understand why you can’t understand that”

The argument turned into a brawl… almost but not there yet, at the end of the heated argument Utsumiya insisted to have him participate in the war, & now there seems to be some understanding.

Wow, these writers are so obsessed with Jetman. Credit to UkiyaSeed of Jefusion and Orends:Range (and a couple of other site) for finding this, and to Windmaster Hiroaki who translated the page for Jefusion.

Go-Kaiger Legend War: The Making of the Legend War and behind-the-scenes footage from the first episode.

Here’s a short, 15 minute behind-the-scenes featurette about filming the Legend War scene, as well as soom footage from the first episode. This comes from a DVD/Bluray release of the first few episodes of Go-Kaiger.

As you can see, that really was a bunch of suit actors, and they managed to film all of that and the stuff for the promos that same day. And if you pay attention to the dates in this video, you can see that filming started within three weeks of the official annnouncement. I don’t know why it almost took a whole month before they started filming the rest of that episode, but that’s what happened. There are a few other surprises in their, but I’ll let you see them for yourself.
