UPDATE (10/4): Amazon has the complete series for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (this is only the original series and doesn't include Zeo and what follows), scheduled for release 11/20, to preorder at $83.99, 30% off the $119.99 list price!

----------
Original post:

http://www.timelife....CzTWV76s6u.svHA

TimeLife said they'd be releasing a set of the first seven seasons of Power Rangers (338 episodes), and they've finally revealed further details including the high(?) price tag, ship date, and extras (including a bonus collectible action figure only acquirable through preordering this collection).

Paying in $43.99 installments is an option if you don't want to or can't pay the full $219.95.

Yes, yes, this is technically MSRP, but collections like this are deals to the right people...though I'm wondering if $219.95 for seven seasons (~$31.42 per season) is too high.

For comparison, Amazon has the first half of Season 1 up for preorder here for $17.94.

Thoughts on whether this is a good deal?

EDIT: According to ssjmichael, you can take 10% off your next order (i.e., this) if you sign up for the TimeLife newsletter on the main page.

EDIT 2: Here's a link to images of the two packages you'll receive through this deal (as well as the bonus action figure).

Say it with me now: DO WANT. :drool::drool::drool:

The action figure makes it an amazing deal. At 7 seasons for $220, it would make each season cost $31.43. I just don't think he show is worth it at that price!

:shock: Cool, thanks for the info! I already updated the OP. I'm assuming this means you couldn't do the paying-in-installments option with that code applied?

Does anyone know if TimeLife charges you immediately if you were to pay the entire price right away?

The installment option still appears to be there, so it should work out to 5 payments of $39.59 each. Their FAQ says they won't charge your order until it ships

When will my credit card be charged?
Time Life will not charge your credit card until your order ships. If the item(s) is in stock there will be a short processing time to fulfill your order (an average of one to three business days). During this time you may see a pre-authorization on your card, but you won’t actually be charged until your order ships from our warehouse.

Damn, I'd love to have the seasons with the original Rangers (series went downhill from there) but I wouldn't mind having that figure. But the fact that they're charging so much for the individual seasons and an action figure seems too much... there isn't even a special package or anything.:-/

The reason the seasons seem expensive is because the seasons are really large. I think season 1 is like 60 episodes. I don't think there is a season less than 45 episodes or so. Considering how many episodes you get, it isn't that bad of a price.

yep, a typical season length here is like 2+ seasons on most shows. If you actually break down on a per episode cost, it isn't that expensive. It works out to about $0.58 an ep.

Has anyone bought from them before? in the installments? are they like some stores that pend the full amount to make sure you have it? or do they just pend and take out the $50 or whatever?

Defiantly want to pick up the full set, and that figure is pretty awesome.

My pre-order has been placed, with the coupon code. I'll be paying $39.59 for the next 4 months!

Assuming that Shout Factory is releasing 2 sets per season. It comes out to be 14.14 per volume, not including bonus disc and figure (14 volumes in all).

Not sure on preorders but when I ordered Ghostbusters Animated series, I got charged about 46.?? then 3 weeks later another installment.

I know what you mean, I'm awful tempted but the $200 tag with coupon is still an awful lot and hard to swallow, and I don't think I could wait with 3 half seasons and all. The other thing I wonder is if the 2 bonus DVDs are only available through this order- if they are, I'll more than likely have to cave and go for it.

This is a great example where quantity over quality isn't worth it at all.

Time Life + Power Rangers + Installment Payments = Nostalgia oozing out of every corner. I wonder if they'll accept Diner's Club and COD payments as well.

Time Life will take the separate disc cases and the action figure, and wrap them in bubble wrap and send them to you in a regular shipping carton.


This right here is a steaming pile of ghetto fail.

Shout! Factory is releasing individual sets of Power Rangers beginning in August. I really only have interest in the original series, as I grew up and lost interest by the time the second series came around, so I will wait.

I agree, once you go Japanese unadulterated violence, you never go back.
As much as this would be a killer nostalgia fix, I sure as hell do not want to plunk down $200 for Power Rangers.

Think the last thing I bought from them was the Get Smart collection because at the time it had an exclusive disc of bonus features for each season which wasn't in the retail release, quality set.

We only need one more thing to complete the time warp.

Why? It's a cappy non-canon cash in. We still don't have Schindler's List or Indiana Jones on Blu Ray either.

wouldn't you want season 3 too then? Season 3 was still Mighty Morphin.

I liked Zeo. Turbo is where it went downhill for me. Having a kid as a Ranger? Idiotic

That's been corrected:

What we were trying to communicate to our readers is this: there will not be a single slipcase (or any other sort of packaging) which houses all 7 seasons together on your shelf. What we made it sound like is that you won't get any slipcases at all, which is where we steered you wrong. Shout! Factory is producing these DVDs, and the packages, for Time Life. What they will do is take the first 3 seasons (the entire run of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and house them in one slipcase, and then separately there will be a second slipcase housing Power Rangers: Seasons 4-7 (Zeo, Turbo, In Space and Lost Galaxy). Time Life will take those two collections, and the special bonus action figure, and those three items are what will be taken to "wrap them in bubble wrap and send them to you."





wouldn't you want season 3 too then? Season 3 was still Mighty Morphin.

I liked Zeo. Turbo is where it went downhill for me. Having a kid as a Ranger? Idiotic


Agreed -- Zeo was pretty awesome, Turbo sucked, but it definitely picked back up with In Space, and Lost Galaxy is generally well regarded. As for seasons not yet scheduled for release, Dino Thunder is great, and RPM is fucking *excellent*.

Why? It's a cappy non-canon cash in. We still don't have Schindler's List or Indiana Jones on Blu Ray either.


Non-canon, yes, but crappy? I love that movie!
