    Ryusoulger will be adapted into Hasbro's First Completely Owned Power Rangers Live Action Show in 2021. I'm thinking Hasbro will want to show connections or Easter eggs to Cybertron and the Transformers. Not doing so seems like a complete waste to me. I haven't watched PR in years, but I watched All of Ryusoulger and Loved It. I honestly think it's the Best Super Sentai Hasbro could have picked to adapt.
    I'm sure we won't see Power Rangers fighting Decepticons in the show, but knowing they are in the same universe solves a big complaint I've had that has existed in the Transformers universe since it started with G1.
    Humans actually having powers and weapons to actually fight Transformers on an even scale.
    How about you guys, Do you want Transformers referenced in the new Hasbro owned Power Rangers show, or do you want them to remain separate? Ryusoul-redmax.png Optimus-Prime-More-Than-Meets-The-Eye-02.jpg

    Haven't cared about PR since Turbo. I got a bit interested again for Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder but even that died off quick.

    They are two completely different franchises. I feel there's no really good reason to mix for several reasons:

    1. This feels like one fandom trying to justify itself to the other fandom. Basically, "Cybertron exists in Power Rangers, so now you Transformers fans have to accept us" or vice versa.
    2. Having a ton of transforming sentient robots running around would make the Megazords seem less special. Why call upon Kishiryuoh when you can just call the Autobots for Defensor?
    3. Rangers use a lot of "magic". While Transformers sometimes does the same when it comes to the Matrix and Sparks, I'm inclined to minimize the mumbo jumbo in the Transformers canon rather than add to it.

    That's exactly the reason to add at least a few Transformers references to Power Rangers. The Power Rangers fandom really isn't doing too well right now with the low ratings and Toy sales of Beast Morphers.
    Plus Ryusoulger already has a major built-in Transformers reference in the show. The Megazord is a Head Master!
    I've always liked the Megazords in Power Rangers. I just thought it would be nice if long time PR fans got the same Treatment toy wise as Transformers Fans have been getting for so many years now. I honestly think it would make both brands stronger.

    I felt the same way, but I'm really excited for the Ryusoulger adaption next year. The action and theme of the show really suits my tastes. I hope adding a few Transformers references will bring some Transformers Fans over to help the show and the brand be a bit more popular.

    Why?

    Why would you want this, though? Doesn't that delete the entire appeal of Transformers?

    I mean, just look at the Bay movies. It's stupid and unsatisfying to watch Transformers be beaten by people.

    But how? You keep saying you want to the two to overlap, but you haven't actually explained why or how.

    If PR isn't doing well after Beast Morphers, I feel like that's Beast Morphers' problem.

    I don't see any reason why they'd need to reference Transformers in a Power Rangers show. That seems more like a thing for comic books.

    Slight turn away from the main topic, the only reason I got interested in Power Rangers when they first came out is the Zords reminded me of Transformers combiners. I had no idea Super Sentai had been a thing for years back then.

    I'm not saying I want to see Transformers in PR, Just a few references and Easter eggs . Like Cybertron being mentioned or the Zords actually being Cybertronians. Just a few clues showing they both exist in the same universe.

    It would do better if they made better toys and made those toys more widely available for all retailers. The transforming zords are only available at Target and then ones that make it so you can't complete the Megazord. Major bungling.
    So was Beast Morphers. It really doesn't work that way in the show.
    It sure would. But crossing over the franchises are not necessary. Hasbro just needs to figure how to "do Power Rangers". Bandai of America at least had a plan. Hasbro seemed caught off guard with Beast Morphers so I'm hoping they will right the ship with next year's attempt.
    Fans either like Power Rangers or they don't. Forcing Transformers into the story won't make Transformers fans like ninjas in spandex fighting cheesy kaiju any more than they did before.

    Transformers are way more popular then Power Rangers right now. I'd think Hasbro would want to add Transformers in the mix to boost PR popularity.
    Plus I would love to get some Megazords with the same Size and Quality as Siege Jetfire!

    I'm a Mecha Fan first and foremost, be it Transformers, PR, Gundam, Macross, put a cool Giant Robot in it, I'm all in!

    I believe the brands have more in common with each other then most think, I believe that's true of the fans also. If one fandom can help another fandom out, isn't that good for everyone especially since the main theme of both Fandoms are Giant Transforming Robots.

    KSR-Tyramigo.png Hasbro is already planning a Transformers vs Power Rangers movie in the Future. Season 28 Ryusoulger adaption seems like the perfect chance to start planting those seeds for a future team up.

    I seriously suspect they are going to call Tyramigo Grimlock in the PR version.



    Here's a cool Fan Made intro for Season 28. The main TRex Zord even talks like Grimlock.

    Me too. You can see it from my Power Rangers collection, which is 97% Megazords and Zords. But Transformers and Power Rangers have about as much in common as Gundam, Pacific Rim or Voltron...which is actually very little aside from the fact they feature robots.

    Well, it's a very optimistic viewpoint. Just not a very realistic one because, again, Megazords are not Transformers and Transformers are not Megazords. It would be about as well received as Transformers: Animorphs.

    If PR's only trick to gain popularity is to leech of whatever is popular, it will never be successful.

    No they are not. People blew that article way out of proportion.

    No they are not.

    Don't you want Megazords that have the same Articulation as say Siege Jetfire? The main problem I have with Megazords is that they are mostly Bricks. I'm hoping for Transformers elements in PR so Hasbro can see PR also has a large Collector demographic like Transformers. I would love to see an Astro Megazord, Shogun Megazords, etc with the same quality as the Earthrise Supreme Class Skylinks that's coming out.

    Even if Hasbro put no Transformers elements in PR, I think if they want to make PR profitable they will have to appeal to PR fans like they do with G1 Fans

    You seem pretty negative on the idea. If they do end up doing a few things I suggested. How would that effect you? Would it make you like Transformers less?

    Involving Transformers with Power Rangers doesn't have anything to do with that. Hasbro just needs to make better toys for Power Rangers.

    Buy the Super Minipla Super Sentai kits. It's exactly what you are looking for.

    That means going back to MMPR for the umpteenth time. And you aren't going to get better MMPR Megazords than what's already come out in Soul of Chogokin.

    To be blunt, why should non PR fans give any sort of damn? I don't need a tapeworm failed sentai series forcefed into something I like. It's like Black September all over again, but shittier if that is fathomable.

    I hate model kits, they never last.

    I disagree, putting Transformers in PR will make it more popular leading to better Toys for both brands.Kids seeing Transformers elements in PR will definitely make them more interested in PR.
    Would love to see Optimus Prime combined with the Dino Megazord, and No, Energon Optimus Prime doesn't count.

    There are non TF fans who Love PR and Super Sentai. Since both are officially owned by Hasbro I just thought it would be nice they are in the same universe now. Like how Marvel has all their characters in the same universe. You don't see Spider-Man in every X-Men book and vice versa. I believe Transformers and PR can exist the same way.

    First, google "Ultraverse" and "Black September".


    Second, multiquote is a necessity if you're going to bump this thread every few seconds.

    What does a Terrorist Group attacking the Olympics have to with TF and PR?

    Anyhow, you're arguing on opinion. No one "wins" an opinion contest. So we'll just have to agree to disagree.

    ...


    Oh, my God. You're serious, aren't you? I underestimated the possibility of the term Black September having multiple uses, and overestimated your ability to process that those two terms I asked you to google might somehow be in context with one another.

    Oh, well. Guess I'll have to do your google fu for you...

    I forgot about this. They were trying even back then to combine the universes. Or at least reference each other. Which I believe will happen in PR season 28 also.


    Still don't see the connection, I'm talking about TF and PR.

    Thanks for the replys, not saying I'm right or wrong just something I wanted to discuss, that's all. I personally hope their are Major Transformers connections in PR Season 28. Just have to wait and see. Going to sleep now Later
