The individual zords mostly look fine, the mastadon being the hardest to tell what I'm looking at. Its the megazord that needed another pass in the design department.

But my ooint was they didnt instantly draw from Bayformers. You cant throw Gypsy Danger into the world of TF because he doesnt fit in whereas this new megazord does. I don't follow anime mecha but Pacific Rm really is the first big budget live action monster vs mecha film. Those designs were made from scratch without drawing any influences from anime mecha according to Del Toro. At least he was trying to be original.

Your bitterness about what my Colts did to your season should not spill over into other threads.

Ehhh, I haven't seen the full scene so I can't really speak to the first.

And yeah, the visual cues are definitely similar. But like I said before, that's kinda always been the thing with PR. It was like a soap opera but with aliens and kung-fu. So that's kinda the vibe I'm getting here. Easily digestible plot points so that you can quickly get to the fun character interactions and kicking.

I get where you're coming from, but you could also throw Gypsy Danger into Big O and it'd blend right in. Del Toro may not have intended it, but that's the case for me at least. That doesn't make it bad though. So maybe the Zord looks a little Bayformerish, but then again the Bayformers just look like Gundams.

All this stuff looks the same is what I'm saying lol. It's up to you if you like it or not. Nothing wrong with either.

And really transforming robot dinosaurs look a bit alike? No kidding, (it's probly why they went more alien with them) dinobots look more scrap metal and armor, dinozords look much bulkier/solid and more xenomorph and are color coded like the originals.

And that's fair enough. I don't like it because for me its all been there done that territory. P

That wasn't even my point. Regardless, its still been there done that territory. And the funny thing is, PR didn't jump to me when I first saw that, transformers did. Because it's all the same aesthetic. There's no identity. It all looks the same.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:



Look! You can even see Optimus Prime's face on the Megazord's knee! lol!

You know the design of the Megazord is bad when Real Steal has more Megazord-like robots than the official PR movie.



Strengthen the joints and give it some fingers and you'd have a solid base model for a Megazord!

Aside from the humanoid appearance (a head, two arms, two legs) Bayformers looks NOTHING like Gundams...

I'm really puzzled by the Rita/Loki comparisons. Because they don't seem that much in common at all really imo. I mean I have issues with her visual design, which I've mentioned repeatedly before, but not because she seems like Loki (because she doesn't to me).

Sadistic villain wanting to take over the world by summoning aliens, wears lots of green, and wields a magical sceptar? I don't necessarily think she's a Loki knockoff but I can certainly see the comparisons.

Cool Re: Lionsgate "Power Rangers" - - - - - - Part 15

Like I said elsewhere...

Don't know where ya'll goin' be but I will be sitting with a bucket of popcorn in the theaters watching this movie when it comes out...

Don't like the movie, skip it! Wait for the next PR film that will hopefully fit your standards.

Bruh, that looks like a base for a Transformer.
The Megazords we're used to seeing are guys in color-coded storage bins.
That's how you know it's Power Rangers.

Looks like they should power him up with kryptonite and have him fight Superman.

It's the Megazord, not Voltron.

Umm, always?

And Voltron and the Megazord share a lot of similarities due to both being a combined form. You look at the new Megazord, and you can't tell that it is made of different robots.

You conveniently left Goldar out...but the original Megazord at least had eyes and the Megazords that followed had faces or similar eye/mask combinations as the original Megazord. Even if the original Megazord didn't have a face, this incarnation is obviously a significant departure so why not give it a face? And are you trying to argue that NO face is the best route to go?

Also...it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that the original Megazord was heavily inspired by Voltron. Even if you're too dense to see it, Tsuyoshi Nonaka (known for his work on Super Sentai) said that Megazord was inspired by Voltron. So

Yeah I'm not exactly sure what PR he has been watching but the megazords have had faces. Half of them look like they have helmets and armour on but the face features are there.
