    I hope we get a Dragonzord, otherwise buying a Titanus seems pointless to me.

    Now that I've finished Wild Force after finishing SPD after finishing Dino Thunder after finishing Time Force, what would you guys recommend I watch next?

    If you haven't already seen RPM or MMPR-Space, I'd suggest those.

    I have. RPM got me back into PR, and I watched the Zordon era growing up.

    Lightspeed Rescue. After the three seasons of MMPR, that was my favorite series.

    I'm going to be very honest. I don't understand the love for the Dragonzord or Titanus. They don't do anything special on their own, and the combination looks pathetic.

    Well, the Dragonzord at least can combine with the mastadon, sabertooth and triceratops, but yeah, it's nostalgia.

    I always like the 'Dragonzord Battle Mode' and also the weapons that the Mega Dragonzord (name?) has. The fact he doesnt really hold it doesnt matter.

    I've been watching a lot of episodes on youtube lately, and a thought just occurred to me - why don't the monsters ever attack the zords while combining?

    That's the oldest Japanese toku/anime trope in the book. Answer that and you may just figure out the meaning of our existence.

    It HAS been subverted before, but only rarely. I don't believe MMPR/Zyuranger was one of those cases.

    Sometimes In Space would show monsters or whatever shooting at it, but it's sheilds would deflect it.

    And some like the Time Force Megazord, being jets, just moves too fast to catch.

    The same reason monsters don't GTFO of the way when the Rangers use a finishing move.

    Well, I, a grown man, just had a blast playing with my Dino Megazord. Still need to make up for the years of not having it as a child.

    Or rather...

    Why don't the monsters attack the rangers while they're morphing? The most we've ever seen of that was that one Lost Galaxy episode where that monster stole the rangers' abilities as they morphed.

    The zord battle was hilarious. The giant monster tried to copy Stratoforce and generated a duplicate of the Megazord's blue boomerang only to see Stratoforce suddenly pull out Centaurus's gun and kill him with one blast.

    I lol'd anyway

    It's common courtesy. The monsters don't attack during transformations and the Rangers don't skip the on-foot battle and squish the tiny monster with their megazord's foot.
