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.

Watch the Brand new Series of Power Rangers Samurai on Nickelodeon and Nickelodeon HD nick.co.uk/powerrangerssamurai

Well, doesn’t that all sound fun for the kiddies. So if you live near or are plan on visiting Blackpool this Saturday, why not stop by the new Nickelodeon Land and meet up with the Samurai Rangers? Maybe you’ll get to ride a roller coaster or two with them. 😉

Also, to my readers from the UK: Is watching videos on Nick.co.uk just as much of a pain as it is for people watching videos on Nick.com? Serieously, you just can’t sit theough a single episode of any show over here without dealing with the worst lags. Have those problems too?

Power Rangers Jungle Fury Coming to Nicktoons: This November, Unleash the Beast!

Well, it looks like someone’s finally making good on their promise. 😛

Nickelodeon announced on Twitter yesterday that their would be a Power Rangers 48-hour marathon, but it’s not for the one you think it is. It’s for Power Rangers Jungle Fury! Check out the original Tweet:

Hey Power Rangers fans, wanna see some of the previous Ranger series? JungleFury joins #Nicktoons on 11/18 at 7pm ET w/ a 48 hr marathon!

For something that hasn’t gotten a lot of attention, this is actually HUGE news! While Jungle Fury might not be everyone’s favorite season (btw it is one of my personal favorites), they are actually running an older season of Power Rangers on Nicktoons, like they said they would, and this could lead to other older seasons seeing new life on this new network. And besides, it’ll be fun to re-watch Jungle Fury, relive all your favorite moments. I plan on trying to catch at least part of it, and you should too! 😉 And remember, that’s November 18th at 7 p.m. EST on Nicktoons.

Jungle Beast, Spirit Unleashed!

Voltron Force: The new Nicktoon series rebooting an old favorite for those who just can’t let go of the 80’s.

Images from new Voltron Force animated series that will air on Nicktoons

I know I’m tardy to the party on this, but Nicktoons showed an ad today about the reboot of the popular 80’s series based on the anime Go-Lion. Nothing really pertaining to the show, but the series will be premiering sometime in June.

For those of you unaware (I didn’t actually know until today myself) VIZ Media recently announced a reboot of Voltron, and apparently the show was picked up by Nick. All part of a recent trend to modernize and reboot popular kid’s television series like TMNT, He-Man, Thundercats, and even Scooby-Doo and Looney Tunes.

Personally, I could care less whether or not they remake this. However, I would like to reiterate that Power Rangers IS NOT a ripoff of Voltron. The series Voltron is based off of the anime Go-Lion, which came over five years after the original Super Sentai series, Himistu Sentai Goranger. And by that point, transforming, combining giant robots had already been integrated into the series. So to everyone out there that still thinks that Power Rangers is a gaint ripoff, if you don’t believe me, GOOGLE IT!

Anyway, good luck to VIZ Media and Nicktoons, and unlike my feelings towards Supah Ninjas (why is this still a thing?) I have no animosity or concern that it might overshadow Power Rangers Samurai while the series is trying to recover, although they’ve been doing pretty well for the time being. Just wish someone other than Toys’R’Us would carry toys for it, for their sake more than mine.
