I know it’s a little late to talk about those ranger designs, but fuck it, I’m gonna analyze them.

On the one hand, they look a little…cluttered. They suffer in part from the same thing that ails the Bayformers–they’re unnecessarily complex. There’s nothing wrong with trying to make the designs look more updated and futuristic; that’s part of the fun of a reboot. However, looking at typical ranger designs from the different incarnations of the TV show, this is just…overboard.

It also feels like something else is off. I want to say they’re too…geometric? The male rangers feel like trapezoids; much more so than a shirtless guy, which is how you know there’s a problem because bodybuilders have this same visual quality. It’s kinda hard to explain, but I don’t know how to put it other than “the guys look like bricks with legs.”

The boobs in the girls’ suits are also downright lame. If you’re gonna do fanservice, do it right; AKA not like this. Make it feel like it’s a legitimate part of the design that adds something, not a fucking tit pocket. Because that’s what this is: a tit pocket. Tit pockets are dumb. Just give them a really tight suit if you really want to expand our Zordongs, but this…this is just not right. The heels are stupid too, but they’re not running from a T. rex in them, at least.

And is it just me, or are their helmets really…blocky, for lack of a better word? They just don’t feel as streamlined as they should be. In fact, their entire suits should be more streamlined. I get that it’s supposed to be more like armor, but can’t it be less bulky?

That said, they do have some redeeming qualities. The color schemes work out pretty well, and the placement of the lights in the armor is a neat touch. Most importantly, they’re easily recognizable as the OG Power Rangers.

I’m surprised no one posted Dino Zords posters yet.

Welp guess it wasn’t supposed to be out yet. They deleted the post. Just a few more hours until it’ll officially be unveiled!

Oh…hell, no…this just looks boring. I’ll wait to actually judge the movie because trailers can be deceiving, but this…this just looks like another cringey attempt by Hollywood to cash in on nostalgia.


#84

I almost spit out my cereal…


#85

The trailer actually has me looking forward to this movie. Maybe it’s the nostalgia talking, but w/e. It seems from the trailer like it won’t take itself too seriously. I mean, it has like every classic movie troupe ever in one trailer, so I think going into it having this in mind will make it enjoyable.


#86

I saw the trailer and my first thought was “Oh hell yes!”.


#87

Opposite for me. I was excited at first, now the trailer made it look like it’s going to be more focused on the drama and them out of costume.
Looks like there won’t be much zord stuff, classic monster appearances, or them in their ranger outfits much at all.


#88

I don’t think they’re going to do much in the trailers with the costumes or Zords yet. They have 5 months left.


#89

I don’t know, even the basic things like their costumes didn’t appear really even in that trailer really. Just a hint that they will at some point.
I’ve seen trailers like this before and then that turns out to be the case in the end, so I am more cynical in my pre-release judgement of things like this.

If it turns out to be amazing and has all these things on release, I will happily admit I was wrong though! I would very much like to be!

It’s a teaser trailer, probably only showed the first 30mins of the movie. I’m sure there will be more stuff coming.


#91

I’m digging it, it seems they’re trying to flesh their characters out more. :smiley:

That end part seems to imply that the kids aren’t the first power rangers in the universe…

I have to say the megazord looks pretty dumb.
