When Saban Brands purchased the Power Rangers brand back from Disney a new trend accidentally began. Due to Nickelodeon’s scheduling demands, Power Rangers slowly began to fall behind Super Sentai. Previously, Power Rangers was a single season behind Super Sentai. Today, Power Rangers has either fallen behind or missed numerous Sentai seasons. We can now have an actual discussion on what Super Sentai series could be next. So join us as we debate which series is the next Power Rangers.
To answer this burning question we turned inwards to our own staff. The rules of this discussion are a simple – each staff member gave a percentage chance on whether or not a Super Sentai would be adapted. The closer to 0% means they feel it is less likely to be adapted, closer to 100% means they feel it is more likely to be adapted.
The staff participating in this editorial are TokuChris, Trekkieb47, KyoryuZeo93, CollectorShuki, Long’s Toys, JmannDX, and Toast.
Ressha Sentai Toqger
Ressha Sentai Toqger aired in Japan from February 2014 through February 2015. The major motif of this season was trains and the Rangers had the unique ability to change colors – yes we even had the Red Ranger become the Pink Ranger. The sixth Ranger of this season was an Orange Ranger which is something Power Rangers has yet to adapt or embrace fully. A Purple Ranger would join via a movie release. This series has a beloved fan following and to say a debate or two has broken out over whether a toy line featuring trains would be successful is an understatement.
I like trains. I do. And I think a Power Rangers team based around trains would be fun, exciting, and potentially very creative for the brand. At the same time I don’t think it’s a safe option for Hasbro to pursue. With toy prices likely to go up starting in 2020 thanks to trade tariffs there is very little wiggle room for failure as consumers will continue to decrease their toy purchasing as prices go up.
We can argue the semantics on whether or not a train series could sustain itself financially in the United States but at the end of the day the reason it was even done was because of the sheer abundance that trains are used in the day to day lives of Japanese residents. The end credits even featured facts and details about trains – something no middle class demographic-fitting child in the United States is going to care about due to the likelihood that trains are not a part of their day to day life.
I just can’t picture a world where Hasbro will choose ToQGer for it’s first 100% their own thing.
While we have trains in America, they are simply just not as ingrained into our daily life outside of major metropolitan cities. While toy brands exist for train here (Thomas the Tank Engine), I don’t think Hasbro would have enough interest competing in that space.
Look, I love trains….like a lot….but just because kids like trains, does not mean it could work for a full Power Rangers season. First off, let us get this out of the way, just because kids love Thomas and Friends does not mean for a second it would work for Power Rangers. There are so many variables as to why such as the show being geared at a much younger audience and the fact that Thomas is actually doing horribly sales wise right now. The two are very different brands. We can’t compare the two. Secondly, the designs are horrible. The basic designs, the turntable/track designs on the chest, the limited variations in trains. It makes for a very lack luster and boring design. This is something that worked very well in Japan. Lots of trains that kids see on a daily basis, designs that were simple and kid friendly, a fun collectable line. It’s very Sentai, but not very Power Rangers. Does that make sense? It does? Good. I can’t see it happening over here.
I’ll be honest. I’m hard up for more ToQger. It’s one of my favorite Sentai, and trains just really get me going. That being said, we’ve got to look at the big picture. Trains are plenty popular with kids (look at things like Thomas and Chuggington) but with the toy market declining, you have to bank on something that has more eye-catching designs than ToQger. The robots are rather basic, the suits are incredibly so, and the roleplay gear isn’t that cutting edge. While it’s definitely a “different strokes for different folks” situation, as much as I love ToQger, the series as a whole just doesn’t have what it takes to hit the spot.
Long’s Toys: Can we do negative percentages?
This is a real shame too because its an interesting season with some amazing villains that Hasbro could have made excellent figures from (and at the end of the day, that’s whats its all about right?) but according to everyone on this side of the world “TRAINS DONT SELL” which I guess I get. The only train property I know of is Thomas the Tank Engine, which most agree has been in decline over the last few years in terms of toy quality and desirability. But don’t they have whole stores dedicated to model Trains? And what about Christmas time??? Someone is buying this [censored].
But you’ll have to tell ToqOh, I’m not breaking his little heart, look how excited he was
Trains are neat. However, they don’t have massive appeal here like they do in Japan. A show that focuses entirely on them just wouldn’t be able to pick up steam in the West. Plus, they’d run into stiff competition with other toy-lines based around vehicles. And in this case, there’d be almost no variety in the types of vehicles in the line even if you could erect a giant robot with some of them.
And I’m just going to come out and say it: I don’t care for the suit designs. There’s just something about the suits and helmets that feel bland to me. There’s nothing on them that really pops. If these suits were made into action figures, they’d likely be left to dangle from the shelves. Combine that with an unappealing theme, and you have a recipe for a big flop. I’m pretty sure Hasbro is going to give this series the shaft.
Although rather sleek, the lackluster suit designs I think won’t appeal much to the target audience and in today’s market/climate, they won’t stand out amongst competition. Trains might be fun for some, but trains alone might not withstand a possible 2 year push.
Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger
Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger aired in Japan from February 2016 through February 2017. The Rangers had an animal motif but featured a unique feature with the zords – they were all cubes. In fact, when forming the Megazord, the zords actually stacked on top of each other. It was even part of the actual toy transformation. The suits featured animal prints on the actual colored fabric and brought back traditional white boots with black highlights from classic Super Sentai seasons past. The sixth Ranger is easily the most uniquely colored – he was gold, black, and silver all in one, with an animal power for each color. An Orange hued Ranger also joins in the finale. The season, like Toqger, has a devoted fan following and many agree the Red Ranger is one of the best in the last decade.
I’m making this my safe pick and the one I think Hasbro is going to go with. A simple six member team with animal motifs and a unique play pattern in cubes. That screams Hasbro and their love of a brand tied around a certain feature. You only have to look at Transformers as an example (Combiner Wars = combiners, Titans Return = Titan Masters, Power of the Primes = Prime Masters, War for Cybertron = Battle Masters) or even how their Marvel Legends choices are all themed (movies, X-Force, Fantastic Four, Sinister Six, etc.).
With the surging popularity of Minecraft again (thanks Pewdiepie) cubes are in – and I think for Power Rangers in 2021, cubes are going to be REALLY in. Compare this choice with other choices (an unsafe play pattern of trains, a series involving a giant cast, or a series where only four of seven characters are ever portrayed together) and I think we have our winner.
Animals are always popular with kids, and there are video game like aspects of these series that could work well for the Minecraft generation of gamers here in the U.S. While the cube zords are simple in design, I think Hasbro could improve on the transforming aspect and create some very detailed toys. The sixth ranger for Zyuohger is very unique, even for sentai, and would be very cool to see a Lightning Collection figure of that ranger.
This is a tricky one. I’m sure Hasbro could do a fun and imaginative series with Zyuohger. Between the cubes, animals, and Zyuman, I bet this could be really cool…but man are these designs unappealing. I won’t go all in on it, but this goes back to me feeling the designs are very Sentai but not very Power Rangers. I wouldn’t be shocked if we did see it though. I actually would like to see it happen over here for the simple fact that I’d like a second chance at liking these designs again. Will it? Who knows.
Zyuohger is another series full of simple designs. However, with Minecraft suddenly stacking up in the minds of kids yet again, now is as good of a time as any to strike with the blocky themes of Zyuohger. Granted, this series wouldn’t hit until 2021, so who knows the state of Minecraft come then. Animals are always a hit with kids, and the Zyuohger designs, while simple, translate really well into secondary merchandise like shirts, pillows, notebooks, and the like. Not to mention the robots could easily add a few joints to make them a bit superior to their Japanese counterparts, while still being blocks. It’s also a prime opportunity to add some alternate forms for the other four Rangers. There’s a lot of stuff they could add to this series to make it even better for the western market.
Long’s Toys: 50%
I think this one has a decent chance. The suits are decent and the block zords are certainly a choice, but with how popular lego and minecraft are over here I think they could market it to kids. It might even give Hasbro a chance to bring Kreon back!!! Look how excited no one is :)
But seriously just name the red ranger Steve, turn his sword upside down an call it a pick axe – instant millions.
Animals and blocks, yo. Kids will always love animals (especially the bitey ones) so building a show where the heroes have animal powers would likely strike a chord with the younger audience.
Plus, Minecraft is at least marginally popular still, but that won’t last very long. If Hasbro wants to ever utilize the concept of cubes that turn into robots, they’ll need to do it pretty quickly or their Roblox window will close.
Plus, blocks are easy to make. It’s a win-win.
Beast Morphers has been fairly well received, and that’s a mix of Animals and Technology…so why not do it again? Might be an easy next step for Hasbro in the creative department, though the proposed toyline may be a little too basic for fans as well as Hasbro, to be honest.
Uchu Sentai Kyuranger
Uchu Sentai Kyuranger aired in Japan from February 2017 through February 2018. It stands as the largest starting cast in Super Sentai history with a whopping nine Rangers to begin the series with. Nearly every color is represented – Red, Blue, Black, Yellow, Green, Pink, Orange, Silver, Gold, Purple, Sky Blue, Crimson, and White (as a power-up). The series itself was a space drama with the power of constellations (serving as the motif), spaceships, numerous Megazords, and an evil space army attempting to take over the universe. Transparency note – it remains one of the favorite series of many of the staff members here.
I love Kyuranger. It’s my favorite Super Sentai since Gokaiger. I love the suit designs. I love the Zords. And in my heart I dream for a day of holding these figures as Lightning Collection figures. But I don’t think that’s going to happen in 2021.
For starters – this has potential to be a giant cast, even if you keep three of the Rangers as “rubber suits”. That still leaves NINE Power Rangers to cast. From a production standpoint that’s an investment and Hasbro isn’t really known for their stellar live-action series (because they don’t have any prior to Beast Morphers). Secondly, this is a giant toy investment as well. The sheer amount of “Kyutamas” the show utilizes both as power ups and as plot devices as the season goes on requires a price point at retail. And if Beast Morphers has been any indication there has not been a lot of retailer buy-in for Power Rangers in 2019.
At the same time if they swing and connect – you could be looking at a revitalization of the brand not seen since Power Rangers Samurai and before it Power Rangers Dino Thunder. But the only way to do that is to spend money and if the brand isn’t performing at top levels right now then that money may not be there in 2021.
I hope I’m wrong but I don’t think I am.
This is my personal bias since I really love this series. The gimmick of Kyutamas is fun and I could see many assortments of packs of these if Hasbro adapted this series. While there are a ton of rangers, you would need just voice actors for some of them. Bring Kelson back as Gold! The theme very much lends itself to Power Rangers and we could have Rangers from planets already established in the Power Rangers Universe.
Wouldn’t it be great to have another spaced themed season? It’s been awhile since out last Power Rangers space opera. This seasons has everything. Lots of Rangers, lots of Zords, a fun gimmick, fun weapons, and amazing designs! Traversing the galaxy with a team of Power Rangers on a mission to take out the biggest evil in the galaxy? What fan of the show wouldn’t be excited? It’s a big undertaking for sure, but I can see Hasbro being all over this in the future.
Kyuranger has “success” written all over it. Why so low? The cast. Hasbro (and Bandai for that matter) had a rather traditional system of “5 Rangers + Foot Soldier for the first wave, with the sixth ranger and more villains rounding out Wave 2 or 3. Kyuranger has a huge 9 member roster to get through, meaning some of the team wouldn’t release right when the show airs. It also means some Rangers wouldn’t get 12” figures, and the individual Zord style of releases would prove to be difficult with that many too. While I think the toys would be great, and the series would be just as good, the sheer amount of product opportunities and roles to fill might turn Hasbro off of doing Kyuranger as its first independent go-around.
Long’s Toys: 75%
Uchu Kitaa!!!!! Oh wait, wrong franchise. This one kinda seems like a no brainer with it being space themed. Kids love space right? Star Wars has shown us that as long as you don’t fire the most recent movie plot into the wall you can sell decent toys for a space themed franchise. Only problem with this one is the number of Rangers is higher than a giraffe’s fun-sack. Hasbro may not want to invest in that many Rangers, but it did kind of work for Dino Charge, so who knows? The zords and gimmick here might be a challenge for Hasbro as well, little orbs don’t really scream “Action Features!” and most of the zords are rectangles with one good hinge joint if I’m being honest, but still … SPACE!!!!
Kyuranger is amazing. The suits are killer, the robots exist, and tiny globes are cooler than tiny trains. While I don’t think the American equivalent of the Kyutama would sell particularly well, they’d at least have the slick hero designs to fall back on.
But here’s where the problem lies. THERE ARE LIKE 5 MILLION RANGERS. They attempted this with Dino Charge and it nearly killed them. I think there’s just too much here for Hasbro to take on right now. I’m sure it’ll get adapted down the line, but Hasbro will need to find some solid footing for Power Rangers before they could commit to a series that would likely be really expensive to produce.
Plenty of Rangers to choose from, with a killer aesthetic design, I’d honestly be surprised if this isn’t next. I’m a big fan of astrophotography anyway, so that places a bias on this season for me. Plus, if it’d be airing 2021/22, then it might coincide with some genuine Mars milestones, which could be really fun and also really good for the brand. Only downside is the probability of them adding NERF to the morpher and…let’s not. Alas, bring on Power Rangers Space Balls
Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger
Lupinranger vs Patranger (or Patoranger depending on how you want to spell/translate it) aired in Japan from February 2018 through February 2019. For the first time the show featured two different teams of Rangers with two unique storylines that throughout the series intertwined with each other. Essentially, the theme was “cops vs robbers”, with a police force (Patrangers) seeking down and trying to bring to justice the criminals (Lupinrangers). The Super Sentai twist, obviously, is that the Lupinrangers aren’t evil at all and their actions are justified by the fact that they too are trying to save people – and examining the barriers and biases between perception vs reality as the teams mingled. The gimmick of the season was ‘trigger machines’ more or less – zords that had a quick change feature and both combined with the morpher (a gun) and with each other to form various Megazord combinations. The extra Ranger of the season (technically being a seventh member for the whole) had the ability to change forms between a Gold Ranger and a Silver Ranger depending on which team he was assisting.
I am going to incense some readers today, I know it. Look – I loved Lupin vs Pat. I loved the suit designs – especially for the Lupinrangers with the Time Force feel with the visors – and I eagerly watched every single Saturday when the episodes released. I was entrenched in the story. I loved the characters and feel they’re some of the best in the history of Sentai in terms of development.
That being said – I have to cringe-face myself at the usage of guns guns guns. This show features the morpher (a gun) heavily – they’re pulling guns on each other, they’re pulling guns on the monsters, and there’s no way to get around the fact that yes indeed it is a gun (like you could with Dino Charge and how they rarely used the morpher as a gun). And to avoid getting political but a series that pits Power Ranger thieves fighting Power Ranger cops? That just screams “skip skip skip” to me to the world leading toy company.
Dino Charge got a pass because “OMG DINOSAURS”. Sadly, there aren’t any dinosaurs in Lupin/Pat to hide all the other blatant issues that just wouldn’t translate well in to the United States today.
That, or I obviously really hate trains because Gold/Silver has a train.
The morphers are guns, so you have an instant connection to make the toys NERF compatible. This would also be a first for Power Rangers with two competing teams of Rangers. This could be very marketable with a “which side are you on?” campaign. A lot of playability with the many different types of zords in this series. This could be really fun.
I’d make this lower, but I could honestly see Hasbro taking a chance with the thief vs cops concept. Going even deeper, could Hasbro just focus on the police side? Hear me out. The show is about the Patrangers (maybe they’d even create a blue and yellow?) as faction of SPD. They have been tasked taking out an underground gang of thieves when all of a sudden a team of anti heroes takes the stage to keep the collection for themselves! Maybe it’s a stretch, but I could see a fun show being made out of this.
LuPat brings some interesting things to the table. It’s core roster of six adds a little bit of fluff to the toy line, but doesn’t put a huge burden on casting to fill roles like Kyuranger would. To top it off, “cops and robbers” is still a common schoolyard game and entertainment motif that gives Hasbro a lot of opportunities to work with. The Zords are on the simplier side of things, which gives them more room to make some more that Japan never did, which is ultimately why I didn’t enjoy LuPats toy line as much as I really wish I did. There’s a lot of possibilities here and I would love to see it happen.
Long’s Toys: 25%
They may get to this one eventually, but I don’t think it would be next in their sights. I thought it was a fun season with great suits and neat mecha. I think having the cars and jets connect to the morpher is 100% something Hasbro could accomplish. They could play the cops & Robbers aspect up more than it was in the sentai and actually make both teams seem equally important, or even better yet, make the Lupinrangers the villains this year, having them ultimately be redeemed or find out they have been being manipulated this whole time. I think this has potential if they don’t mess it up, but if we do get it I think it will be a few years
Lupinranger vs Patranger was a really clever and unique concept for a Sentai series, so it would of course be a very clever and unique concept for a Power Rangers series. Every child plays Cops n’ Robbers at some point in their lives. Lawmen versus thieves is a staple that has existed since the dawn of entertainment, so it would have fairly universal appeal.
But here’s the problem: the thieves are the good guys too. LuPat makes it clear that the Lupinrangers are only Phantom Thieves because they want to bring back their loved ones. But it’s still a pretty terrible message to children. “Hey, it’s cool to do crime as long as your friend is dead.”
Plus GoodStriker is creepy and I hate him.
Honestly I forgot this season happened, for such a monumental thing to have in it’s Sentai (the two team concept), nothing about it seems too memorable. And I don’t just mean narratively, the designs are very ‘meh’ to me. I can’t see them selling too well. NERF comment applies here too, unfortunately.
Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger
Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger began airing in March of 2019 and is still airing to this day. The motif of the season is once again dinosaurs but also crossed with a look of “knights”. The Zords and Megazords are a departure of years past as it focuses on almost a “building block” like technology where pieces are placed on the main mecha – a tyrannosaurus zord for the Red Ranger – and a huge amount of customizability with it. The sixth Ranger this season is a Gold Ranger (with blue highlights, think Power Rangers Samurai). The collectible gimmick are “souls” which are essentially Ranger Keys that combine in to the Megazord to form the head based on whatever combination you are creating.
A Power Rangers team based on dinosaur motifs with an ability to once again try and crack your way in to the building block genre of toys that you, as a company, have failed to do before? Sounds like a winning formula for an up and coming marketing exec who is trying to get their next promotion. You get to harken back to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers – the only Power Rangers series that 85% of the population remembers – and try a new formula of building block toys that is actually incredibly marketable.
I put it a sliver of a percentage behind Zyuohger only because I know that Hasbro is currently deciding – or has already decided – on what the next series is going to be and due to Ryusoulger not yet concluding in Japan makes for a possibility of “do this one next time”. But then again, Saban Brands and Bandai originally scrapped the GoBusters adaptation at the 12th hour to adapt Kyoryuger to become Dino Charge because of the benjamins so anything is game, really.
I’m not super familiar with this series (not currently watching it) so I would have interest in seeing an adaptation of it. But I’m going to be blunt – the only reason it’s at 74% is because of the dinosaurs. In terms of sales/success, Power Rangers as a brand is 3 for 3 with dinosaurs. 4 for 4 sounds very enticing to executives.
While this would be a chance for Hasbro to do their own take on a Dinosaur series, are kids feeling the burnout with Power Rangers based dinosaurs? Or could the potential tie in to MMPR, Dino Thunder, and Dino Charge be too great for Hasbro to pass up? All were solid sellers for their respective toy lines. Is the rumored Dino War in Beast Morphers a set up for this series to be adapted?
Would Hasbro allow dinosaurs so soon? We’ve had 2 Ranger teams since Dino Charge. As profitable and fun as it would be to see this adapted (Plus I need Lightning Figures for Max Ryusoul Red NOW), I can’t see it happening right away. Eventually? Yes. Next? No.
This is a weird one. Come 2021, Ryusoulger will have been a thing of the past, so while thinking about turning Power Rangers into Ryusoulger now seems “too soon”, it won’t be come the show’s premier. Dinosaurs is a safe motif to use, and the secondary motif of knights is a big hit with kids as well. It’s mostly up to whether Hasbro would really want to make full use of the “LEGO” style of Zords we have for this season. I feel like this one is a pretty decent possibility, I just feel like Zyuohger and LuPat offer a lot of possibilities without jumping into something that’s a bit more out of the norm like Kyuranger’s cast or Ryusoulger’s Zord design.
Long’s Toys: 100%
Lets face it, they are just going to faceroll dinosaurs because OMG DINOSAURS EQUAL INSTANT MONEY. To be fair everyone likes dinosaurs or at least finds them interesting. Girls & boys alike as well as the parents ultimately buying these things. The reason Sentai keeps coming back to them is because they always work out even if you put no effort into the story. Which Ryusoulger has proven to us…….its actually getting better……….just took 30 episodes…..
I don’t want to see Dinosaurs again, but if Hasbro wanted to replicate whatever successes Dino Charge had, then I can see them taking this route. Personally, it’s too soon (as was Ryusoulger).
Nothing is ever guaranteed in the world of business. Maybe in 2021 Hasbro decides to take Power Rangers animated rather than continue live production contracts in New Zealand. Could Sun Vulcan get an adaptation in 2021? Or maybe Hasbro decides not to do anything – and for the first time in almost 30 years Power Rangers is cancelled as a television program. We sound off on what we think may happen and the likelihood of that below.
NOTE: Not everyone chose to include an answer in this one. And then there’s JmannDX who gave multiple. So yeah.
TokuChris: Power Rangers is Cancelled (50%) or Power Rangers Goes Animated (50%)
I love Power Rangers. If I didn’t love it I wouldn’t have created a website specifically dedicated to just Power Rangers when I had a whole other website that covered it along with the rest of the tokusatsu genre. But the reality I have gathered from talking with people in the toy industry (NOTE: excluding Hasbro employees) is that Power Rangers under Hasbro just isn’t doing it in 2019. A marketing executive with a rival toy company told me recently that per their competitor estimates Power Rangers in 2019 is going to move less product overall than in almost every other year since 2010.
We have never received an official word from Hasbro but I’ve never seen a Zord in Walmart. Does that mean Walmart, the largest retailer in the world, elected to pass on carrying what was the bread and butter for Bandai – the zords and Megazords? That’s a huge, Huge, HUGE blow. There is no roleplay element or collectible gimmick (ie: NINJA THROWING STARS, Dino Chargers, Ranger Keys, Gosei cards, etc.), electronic Megazords that do not transform clog the shelves, and my stores are two waves behind on the 6″ figures. And now the Lightning Collection is having a random 9 month gap in release in 2020.
Things that make you go HMMM…
As for animated – I think it has potential. It would remove the magical element that live-action brings but in 2021 is live action still a thing? Even Star Wars elects to go animated on television rather than doing anything live-action. Some of the most beloved Marvel shows are animated shows. And, for whatever reason, people feel less “childish” watching a cartoon than they do watching Power Rangers live-action. It also gives Hasbro full control, allows for universe building, any Power Ranger can guest star, and you can just have the actors do voice overs rather than lose 30lbs to try and fit in to one shot of wearing spandex.
Will it happen? Coin toss. Guess we’ll find out sometime next year.
TrekkieB47: Animated Power Rangers – 95%
Hasbro is known for their animated series in My Little Pony and Transformers. Could Power Rangers be next? I would say so. With the contract extension of Power Rangers and Nickelodeon only running through 2021 and with Beast Morphers ending in 2020, a year of Animated could save costs versus a live action series. Battle for the Grid is already using past actors to voice their past characters, so cameos and crossovers could be done more easily in animation. New ranger teams could be created like the comics, without relying on Sentai. From start to finish Hasbro can control all aspects of the toy line and story.
CollectorShuki: Animated 5%
While I think it’s safe to think of the chance Hasbro could go animated, I don’t think they’re going to go animated without at least attempting a completely independent live-action show first. With Beast Morphers still carying much of the Saban staff, and Hasbro trimming their numbers slowly but surely, Power Rangers 2021 is Hasbro’s first chance of using their own in-house team and make something new. I think this could happen down the line, but for 2021, I don’t think we’re gonna go animated (at least not fully) and I doubt we’re going to go way back before Zyuranger or do something 100% independent of Super Sentai footage.
Give Haim what he always wanted, and bring back Mark Dacascos as the Red Ranger! DO IT YOU COWARDS.

ShouGeki GouRaiGan: 12%
A team of 5 color-coordinated heroes join together to combat an alien invasion? THAT SURE SOUNDS LIKE POWER RANGERS TO ME! They adapted Go-Busters so anything is possible. Even impossible things like adapting a completely unrelated show made by a completely different studio they don’t even have the license for.
And even if they had to cut out all of the nudity, there’d still be like, 12 minutes of footage they could use. LOOK AT ALL THOSE SAVINGS!
Toast: Animated (no % given)
I can’t see them going purely animated. I’d like to think that Hasbro realise one of Power Rangers main appeals is the fact that it is a live action show, and has been for over 25 years.
