Yeah Netflix pulled the rug out from under me so to speak. I was on Super Megaforce. Which I was actually enjoying, mostly because of the fight/action scenes. I did jump in on Beast Morphers, and it's okay. Not awful, but certainly a product of the declining quality and overly formulaic and pedantic writing. There is zero depth. I think Nate and Steel are my favorite characters...but there's not much to grab onto and I can only watch an episode or two at a time before I have to switch out.

Though a new MMPR based (animated?) series with the same quality and care as the new Voltron, She-Ra, Carmen Sandiego, or Dragon Prince really excites me...

It really annoys me hearing about how basic and formulaic Beast Morphers is since the source material is ironically one of the more serious Sentai series in the franchise and is fairly popular with older viewers. To the point where they had to try and lighten it up halfway through since kids weren't connecting with it as much.

I adore the sentai and was really glad to see it brought over for PR, but the outcome outside of some details sounds disappointing.

I only saw Zach once and I grabbed him. He was almost invisible. Never saw him again after that.

I'm hoping we get a Scorpina and a Divatox reveal on Friday.

I'm hoping we get a look at those turtle sets as well. And the new monsters. I just have a feeling they may just show us most of the stuff we know about already.

I told myself for the longest time that I didn’t need the Zeo Rangers, but saw the green one today and caved. I have a bit of nostalgia for them and think they just look cool.

Red and Blue are still easy to find, but Gold (who I passed on multiple times) has gone up. Anyone have a lead on one for a non-crazy price? (Well, under $40. He’s not going for too crazy prices)

And here I thought Trey would be easy to get since it's not the Jason head and the one with the Jason head already came out.

...well those were some weak reveals. Repaints of already released Rangers and a Target Exclusive Tyrannosaurus sentry.

Looks like Hasbro fixed their awful red ranger helmet. The new metallic armor red ranger has a far better helmet as does the Tyrano Sentry figure they just announced. Hopefully there is a regular newly released red MMPR figure with the new helmet.

BOOM! Red Sentry looks good. Was hoping it would be a shared exclusive between Target & Pulse, but looks like Just Target...

On a side note, Paul is super cute :D

Honestly kinda disappointed in the Fan Fest reveals.

The rest of the metallic rangers which...cool but it's more MMPR so okay. Then the Tyrannosaurus Sentry which I was super happy to see cause I love the Drakkon army suit variations and could already visualize having at least 4 flanking him on all sides, but then they drop the bomb that it's Target exclusive and my excitement just vanished.

And that was it. I need variation with this line outside of what gets leaked. No monster teases? No news about those Ninja Turtle listings? Like what's the plan for this line going onward?

Hopefully they have the original 5 MMPR re-released with both unhelmeted heads in the future.

Yeah.... I was expecting more. Like... a lot more.... there are a bunch of codes for yet to be revealed product, including 2 more monsters that are suppose to be out in a few months.

I was surprised by and very happy to see the sentry, and then they crushed it with the Target Exclusive thing. Hopefully it won't sell out in seconds like every other target exclusive.

It seems like they don't want to announce stuff too far in advance for some reason. We know there is a lot more coming, but they don't want to confirm it. Or maybe they are just behind in production. They didn't even have the pics for the metallic stuff ready for the stream, but at least they were on the pre-order pages.
