Shout Factory is releasing an exclusive DVD set that will have every episode of Power Rangers until the end of Megaforce (presumably Super Megaforce). The picture shows a giant Red Ranger helmet, but that is probably an exclusive pack-in and not the DVD case.

EDIT: OK, that is the case after all.

...How the Fuck are they gonna fit 98 DVDs in there?

Eh. Thanks, but all of the Power Rangers series after SPD took a dive in quality, IMO.

...And couldn't they just put all 98 DVDs in paper sleeves or something and stack them together in the helmet? I dunno. :???:

The only good one though, sadly. Everything else is pretty god awful.

 

I would love to own this set, but it's not practical when only 4-5 seasons are worth owning.

Well, a standard DVD case can hold 6 DVDs, max. To fit 98 DVDs, you would need 17 cases. This is more than double the amount of discs in the entire DCAU. More than likely it will be on a spindle, but the helmet has to be freaking huge.

Couldn't they stretch it out and make it an even 100? :bow:

I keep hearing good things about RPM, but I've never actually watched it. I really should try it out soon... :-k

How in the blue hell can they possibly get 98 discs in there? And more importantly, how can they ensure that they won't get scratched to shit during shipping?

I have zero interest in that helmet, because my OCD would not allow it on my shelf, and since I bought the MMPR-LG set that was previously released. I'm going to pretty pissed if they don't release a smaller set of LR-SM, but I really doubt Shout! and Saban would Fuck the fans like that.

They will probably release a set of Lightspeed Rescue/Time Force/Wild Force/Ninja Storm/DinoThunder and another one with SPD/Mystic Force/Operation Overdrive/Jungle Fury/RPM.

Might be a while since they just finished MMPR in the single releases.

I'm sure Shout will release them separate, they been cranking out the rest of the single Power Rangers DVD sets, almost monthly as of late, I would expect them to release them separate and maybe 2 more box sets to match those who got the Legacy set.

First of all, the DVDs are stored in slots in the back of the helmet, separated into 10 tins. "The tins are going to look like the Power Coins," Ward explained. "Each one of those tins will hold 10 discs." And as an added bonus, "there are two empty slots for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie and Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie.

OK, so that's 6 OG Rangers, plus the White Ranger. I guess the other 3 are going to be from Season 3?

That is still a gigantic helmet. May even be life-size.

Holy crap, it IS life size. Dayum.

Part of me is tempted by this. Not only would I not have to wait for the seasons between Lost Galaxy and Samurai, but I would also be able to get Samurai as one set. LionsGate released Super Samurai complete on DVD and Blu-ray, but not OG Samurai. That series is on 5 singles only for some reason.

Then again, I already own the two previous boxsets and already condensed them and put the movies in there.

Does anyone know if Shout charges prior to shipping. Im imagining this will be quite pricey but I'd love to throw down a preorder when its available but im curious to know?

Depends on where you buy it from.

And there's no back plate or something? I hope the tins lock in at least. If I am paying multiple hundreds of dollars, I don't want a glorified CD Holder.

From what I read it's going to be exclusive to Shout's website.

Yeah... Im horrified both by the price and just imagine what it's gonna pop up for on ebay and such... it'll probably be nearly unobtainable after sellout...

If you look at Shout Factory's prices for seasons 1-7 it's close to $200! I guess you could always buy 2 in hope of flipping one to pay for the majority of the other one... People will probably get on my case for saying that, it's not like I said buy 20 of them.

Well do we know a price yet? Every single epuisode is streaming and... since Mega Force is still going, it'll likely only go up to the first season of Mega Force.. so it'll be quite incomplete as more power rangers series come out. And what would they do with a future set? Start at Season 2 of Mega Force? I'd get it if it was a.) in a green Ranger Helmet b.) Less than $150 c.) was on Blu ray.

They confirmed it's only going to be up to Megaforce, not Super Megaforce.

To be fair, we don't know that. They said up to Megaforce, but we don't know if Shout Factory is splitting up Samurai or not, especially since they are using they own pressings and not the currently released Lionsgate discs. Super Megaforce has pretty much wrapped up filming, hasn't it?

There is no way in hell this will be $150. The two boxsets were $200 and only had 7 sets, not to mention that Red Ranger helmet (which they are using instead of the Green Ranger because the Red Ranger is the leader and the most iconic) will probably cost a ton to make.

As for Blu-ray, why don't you go and find all those currently released Power Ranger Blu-rays? Especially on store shelves instead of online. Better yet, why don't you go and find the massive amount of Blu-rays Shout Factory releases?

TV on Blu-ray is still in the far minority. Kids TV on Blu-ray is even rarer. When DVDs no longer exist, then you'll see TV on Blu-ray become dominant.

Well while Red is the leader, the Green Ranger is 100% more iconic. I ask anyone about power rangers and their first instinct is Green or White Ranger. They had the distinction of having their own zords while the power rangers had smaller zords becoming one big one. Dragonzord was almost the same size as Megazord. And casual fans, those who caught smoe episodes and want to say they loved power rangers, always talka bout the green ranger. Not to mention the popularity JDF gets frmo being 5 rangers. If the other Rangers embraced their power rangers pride they too could be making a fortune off their 90 kids show fame.

 

So while this set is cool, the site seems to say its out december 3rd. No way would all mega force be on dvd and shipping by december 3rd. Did the show not last long? don't power rangers shows often go for a few seasons? This would indicate MegaForce only has like 2 seasons.  If thats the case and its all there well then that is defintely a cool set. But if this sucker goes for like $400, no thanks. I'd pay half that. Otherwise, they're all streaming on Netflix right now. And if the 2 movies aren't included in this set then it's not complete also.

Did an estimate as to how many discs are for each series using current series as a guide.

MMPR S1: 6 discs
MMPR S2: 6 discs
MMPR S3: 5 discs
Zeo: 5 discs
Turbo: 5 discs
In Space: 5 discs
Lost Galaxy: 5 discs
Lightspeed Rescue: 5 discs
Time Force: 5 discs
Wild Force: 5 discs
Ninja Storm: 5 discs
DinoThunder: 5 discs
SPD: 4 discs
Mystic Force: 4 discs
Operation Overdrive: 4 discs
Jungle Fury: 4 discs
RPM: 4 discs
Samurai: 5 discs
Megaforce: 5 discs (assuming same # of episodes as Samurai)
Extras: 6 discs

The post-LSR episodes are tricky since most are around 40 episodes, which is the limit for 4 discs.

Unless they are re-using Lionsgate's singles for the first half of Samurai, this set will include both Megaforce and Super Megaforce.
