    By far, my least favorite games in the series.

    I'm 18 and I literally don't think I've watched Power Rangers since I was like 10. I used to like it when I was like, 7-9. At 10, it started getting old. Now I just look back, laugh, and facepalm at some of the stuff in those shows. A small, nostalgic part of me remembers the fun, but I just...ugh, it was so silly. I'm sorry, but the idea of a Power Rangers movie in theaters? It'd have to literally blow me out of the water to get me to see it–and I hate swimming so I'm rarely in the water. :p

    !

    Forget MMPR, this is huge. The people who have been begging for these for ages will be happy.

    I agree that it was my least favorite but that was not a fault of the setting. It was the decision to only use new Pokemon and it was the flaws of the unpolished engine that made it the only one I don't care for. The elite four was pretty lackluster too.

    But I'm still happy about the news.

    I will admit, MMPR is better than the rest. The others are bleh. :p

    Given his frequent failure to supply the requisite amount of cynicism, he has time to grow into it! ;)

    Indeed. Obi-Wan was what, near sixty by the time he went by that name again?

    :( *just got struck by the thought that neither Xizor, Jerec or Trachta are canon any more*

    I found a tick.

    You are all now itchy.

    And last I checked, wasn't SotE G-canon, thus making Xizor canon? Or is Schrödinger's Canon screwing that up, too?

    Why do you think SotE is g-canon?

    Yeah but he would just be another random person in the crowd, as much as the Outrider is just a random ship in Ep 4.

    The Xizor micro machine toy is G-canon, yes.

    I could've sworn Lucas was on board with making SotE, but I must be remembering wrong.

    Only his clothes are canon, on account of being worn by every Falleen in Black Sun per TCW. :p

    All humans wear Han Solo's clothes, right?

    He was involved with a few different things, although AFAIK he wasn't particularly involved with SOTE. But he was involved with the NJO and TFU, basically reading over the treatment for each and giving his thoughts.

    No, no, Revanfan1 is the one who's 18. I'm 24. And I never watched Power Rangers growing up, I watched Beast Wars instead. Which means that, unfortunately, my nostalgia-fueled movie based on a property meant for children will be directed by Michael Bay.

    You wound me, sir.

    The announcement happened pretty much the day after I got it framed. Irony not lost on me- I waited so long it wasn't canon! ;)

    Though I'm not sure to what degree he had input on SOTE, Lucas's involvement isn't grounds for canon anymore- ie: Ewok movies or (thankfully) TFU.

    Oh. We'll, you're still a youngling :p

    As for Han, the guy never changes clothes ! At least when he was an NR general, he was forced to adjust his wardrobe.
