Would you like one? Can it work?
(Most will probably say "no" but I'm asking anyway)
Hm...Well...not on Earth? Because their realities do seem quite different. But lets assume, for fun, that Zed or someone else, finds out there is a great power on Cybertron so they go there and the Rangers follow to try stop him. I think something like that could work. xD
How bad ass would it be if the Rangers Zords were destroyed and partnered with a combiner team instead?
It sounds like a bad fanfic, but damn it really speaks to my inner 10 year old. As well as my inner 35 year old.
Just as long as it didn't take itself seriously. But yeah, I love Power Rangers
I'd love a crossover between BOOM's Power Rangers and IDW's Transformers comics.
Power Rangers achieved a crossover with the Ninja Turtles... but the Turtles and Rangers were on a similar level, being martial arts warriors.
The Zords would be the only means, as far as I know, to bridge the Rangers and Transformers, and even then those guys are only called out when the monster they're fighting gets kaiju-sized. Zords are awesome, but there were occasions when the Rangers proved their worth by beating the monster without needing to call on their Zords.
So, I think not.
Well, Masterforce is more of a mixture than a crossover, but that might be right up your alley.
Well, I'd be game. Some rangers are just really good martial artists with a high threshold for pain, but others have legit super powers, so things will really vary depending on which Power Rangers are picked.
Sure, why not? I feel like that makes more sense than TF and G.I.Joe.
I wonder if TFs could morph? In some series, non-humans morph into standard Ranger humanoid forms. So what if, like, Optimus had an SPD morpher?
Why is that? You could swap out the normal military for G.I. Joe in the cartoons and movies and it wouldn't make a difference.
I was going to suggest Masterforce would be a suitable avenue for a crossover, since both shows have some common elements which could play off of each other. Not just the emphasis on the human casts "turning into" the robots, but also how the big bag in Masterforce was an alien intelligence which seems to have a bit in common with your typical Sentai show villain.
I can see it going a few ways. Obviously these would be Elseworld Stories.
1) In Zeo the Machine Empire forms an alliance with Megatron and the Rangers, thanks to Trey and the Aquesians, make contact with Optimus who comes to their aid.
2) A freak accident causes the rangers' zords to suddenly gain sentience and we learn that Zordon didn't build them... he discovered them. The Zords are a team of Autobots that crashed when searching for Prime.
3) Rita, in an attempt to destroy the rangers, casts a spell that is supposed to break the bonds between them and their zords. Instead the spell backfires and the rangers merge with their zords, becoming Transformers with beast forms (IE the T-rex zord can transform into a humaniod and has Jason's mind and spirit). The Rangers are naturally freaked out and are unable to control their new powers so Zordon sends them to Cybertron to learn under the tutelage of the Autobots.
Power Rangers meeting with Voltron would make more sense.
Unless they are fighting Rumble/Frenzy, Rangers out of the Zords couldn't really do anything. In the Zords, they tower over normal TFs so they'd really just have to fight combiners.
I think with their numbers, Transformers could still pose a challenge.
Rangers could interact with decepticon pretenders, human size monster shells/inner robot "grows". Rangers are headmasters, or interact with autobot head/titan masters.
But lots of fans hate the military in TFs, and they're usually at a distinct disadvantage.
Power Rangers, though, have superpowered suits and robots of their own, so while different, are on a comparable level to TFs.
The main reason I got into Power Rangers back in the day was because they reminded me of Transformers combiners. I couldn't see the crossover having any sort of longevity but a few good fights would be something I could get into.
Maybe as headmasters of some sort
I know the Power Rangers would feel right at home in the Transformers Bayverse. Explosions everywhere!
Galvatron and Lord Zed team up to take over Earth. Zordon contacts Prime and they develop a new kind of Ranger that can merge with Autobots to make Autorangers. Essentially the Human Rangers become the morpher for the Autobots.
