way to insult the blind
1. Hasbro, at one point, was almost losing the rights to make Power Rangers. Also, the major collaboration is between BandaiNamco and TakaraTomy. Hasbro is sort of the middleman. Considering that Hasbro owns Power Rangers, it makes it more likely for a Transformers X Super Sentai.
2. Imagine Mecha based upon the actual Transformers in their alternate modes.
3. Super Sentai is to Power Rangers as an original Anime is to the Dub. So, essentially, I am not talking about Power Rangers, I am talking about Super Sentai. They may have the same costumes, similar Transformation Devices, and the use of Mecha/Zords, but they aren't the same. In fact, a lot of the Super Sentai-exclusive Mecha that were exclusive to the toyline or to Super Sentai-Exclusive Movies weren't released in the West.
I see that you don't exactly have a good relationship with Power Rangers, but Super Sentai is different, but the same. Can you see what I am talking about? Anyways, what about the previous points? Imagine Transformers based upon Gundam and Gundam based upon Transformers. Imagine Transformers X GoBots. And what about Kamen Rider? Remember Kamen Rider Dragon Knight and Saban's Masked Rider? They were the only 2 adaptations in the West of Kamen Rider. Meanwhile, Super Sentai is the more popular of the two because "oh, giant robots". Kamen Rider is essentially Super Sentai without the Giant Robot Battles.
So, I wonder whether Super Sentai could somehow lessen the trauma and/or allow you to put it in the past. Anyways, if you see different characters besides the characters who the kids looked like, it could work better.
Sorry if this seems disrespectful. Trust me, I have something that I absolutely HATE due to teasing in Elementary School. That is "Michael Finnegan". The constant teasing and taunting has caused me to HATE anyone who references that song. It PLAGUES me to this day. If I wasn't teased and taunted by that song. In fact, it has been hard to make friends due to that song. Sorry. for this sounding rant-like.
BACK ON TOPIC:
Purple paleotrex & Megatron IS the "spoiler box " , which much like the last 2 boxes the spoiler is the text written on the inside packaging, which is basically useless out of context of watching the Netflix show.
Do we know if spoiler box 3 will have energon cubes + "play doh"?
Bandai is scarily big , it completely dominates the Japanese market if I’m not wrong . Last I checked Takara is pretty far away from even being in the same league as Bandai . There’s a reason why there’s a walking 1:1 Gundam and all the Gundam related places there and not Transformers or Zoids ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
Bandai is massive. The even own some of the broadcast stations in the country. If you're watching TV over there, chances are it's one of their divisions. (Well, that was true last I checked 2-3 years ago, may have changed since.)
This does remind me, I'm kind of surprised no one's posted the interior quote yet. Granted there's the possibility that these samples were stolen straight from the factory without the packaging, but I'd have figured we would've seen it by now. We haven't seen the Megatron this will be packaged with either yet, so maybe when one crops up, so will the other in short succession.
Didn't realize they owned Gundam either but yeah that's a massively popular franchise.
Ok first see above. Second. Bandai America is not a completely separate company that would violate international copy right laws considering they use the same name, the same logo, and for the most part sell the same products... with a few exceptions which is only because toy safety laws in America are completely different than toy safety standards in Japan. It's the same company just a different branch of that company. Any completely separate company using their name and likeness illegally would be sued in a heart beat.
I appreciate the thought but I honestly can't stand anything even remotely related to that Franchise. Masked Rider was a spin off of Power Rangers with his origin actually being explained in a Power Rangers episode and some scenes from that episode were shown in the opening of the series as they quickly explain who he is.
I don't have an issue with Go-Bots or Gundam cause those things have nothing to do with Power Ranger. And that's actually partly why I say keep the hell away from Transformers. If they start having crossovers... I might possibly end up selling off my entire collection of Transformers... Or trying to anyway... I still have some Power Rangers stuff I haven't been able to sell. I keep it in storage out of my sight and only get something out if I'm about to ship it off to someone. All the morphers and role play weapons Donald had have been sold off already. Most of the Zords are gone. All that's left after that is a few little figures that I'm not sure are even in good enough to condition to be worth anything. I think the pegs are broken on the Dragon Shield and White Ranger shields so they don't even stay on anymore. I don't even know where most of the accessories even are for those figures.
Your fine just please don't push it any further. I mean I can't stop you from having your own opinion. If you want to continue to discuss that stuff with other people who actually share your interests, all I ask is not to quote me or tag me in those posts so I don't get notifications sent to me about it.
I don't even know who that is or what song you're talking about...
*Spongebob Narrator* One google search later...
Oh my gawd that's annoying! Also that's far less of a rant then the one I did. I only listened to this song for a few seconds and I already hate it. It doesn't make any sense, it just repeats the same nonsense over and over again, WHY IS THIS A THING?!
To be fair... is Zoids even still a thing anymore? I think that was around the same time as DinoZaurs and lasted just as long. But there are Transformers... like Japan has actually built some life sized Transformers that you can actually drive, and they aren't really practical in Robot mode, it's basically just for show, really freaking slow, but still cool that they even did that at all.
Yep, Zoids has been an ongoing series for a while, not sure exactly how long.
And my name is Michael. So they were constantly teasing me. UGGH
And noticed that I added red text. Especially on "Hate" and "Plagues". Like the infamous Hate Plague.
We had an alter named Michael but he's recently fused/integrated with another alter and now goes by Mike. I say recently but it was like a few months ago the new alter made himself known. Anyway that's not really the same though when most people aren't even aware we exist and even some people who are aware they always call us either by our birth name or by the system host's name and that's only because certain people don't even know our birth name. The only people who actually use our actual names right now are some friends in another system who also have DID.
A. That response was in direct response to you ignorantly just throwing out that "Takara is the biggest toy company in Japan don't argue with me" and BEFORE you responded and quoted both of us. B. I didn't mean it was a completely different company like some yahoo was just willy nilly using the name outside of Bandai. I meant that it is run and controlled by completely different people than Bandai Japan. And I think you know that.
I don't know the current standing, but years back (around the time of Power Rangers RPM), Bandai of America was bought out by another company and licensed the name/logo and PR properties, but effectively became it's own company completely independent of Bandai of Japan. (They may have become something else since that time, but at one point, they were not a division of anything and were their own company.)
Right. I'm not sure of the business hoops Bandai America employed but, the arrangement was touched on briefly in the Power Rangers episode of The Toys That Made Us.
Can we please get back on topic?
Any rumors about how Megatron will be retooled? I hope it isn't just a 5mm hole drilled thru his chest...
Apparently he is being changed to beable to have the allspark attached to his chest.
I remember Wreckgar39 saying that the chest itself isn't actually retooled, he just comes with an accessory that fits over his chest to put the other accessory in
But, if this is the truth, then how would it attach?
Megatron's shoulder flaps that flip around for transformation have a little slit on top next to them that I imagine you could slot something with tabs into. If not that then it just snuggly slides on somehow.
It reminds me of a certain character.
Separate names with a comma.
