Shout! Factory broke the news back in March that they'd signed a deal with Saban Entertainment for home video rights to 17 years of Power Rangers television history: every American TV show (sorry, no Sentai) from 1993's Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers to 2009's Power Rangers RPM is included in the deal...but only those shows, however. The '95 and '97 theatrical films are still with Fox, and the most recent TV series - as we recently reported - is coming to DVD from Lionsgate Entertainment instead. But all of the previous programs from the hugely popular franchise are in Shout!'s hands now, and they are beginning their mega-assault on stores this summer!

Overnight the studio's first plans for this show have been revealed with an Amazon pre-order entry for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers - Season 1, Vol.1, arriving in stores on August 21st. This 3-DVD set priced at $19.93 SRP brings you the first portion of the first of Morphin's three seasons. That includes "Day of the Dumpster," the very first episode which introduces us to Jason, Kimberly, Zack, Billy, Trini, Zordon, Alpha 5, Ernie, Bulk, Skull, Rita Repulsa, Goldar, Finster, Baboo and Squatt. We also ought to get on this collection the legendary 5-part story "Green With Evil," which first introduces Jason David Frank as "Tommy Oliver," the Green Ranger (the first of several colors Tommy would sport over the years!).

We're still waiting on Shout! Factory's press release (possibly next week) with all the details of this exciting brand launch for them. Hopefully it will have word of other releases in this long-running franchise (maybe other configurations for us more passionate fans, perhaps?). Stay tuned and we'll fill you in, as further developments occur!

This is awesome news. I can soon move all those early MMPR one-episode-to-a-tape VHS editions into storage.

This is good news. Season One consisted of 60 episodes, so I wonder how many volumes Shout! has in store.

Two volumes at 30 episodes each
or
Three volumes at 20 episodes each

"Green With Evil" miniseries:
-episode 17 (Part I)
-episode 18 (Part II)
-episode 19 (Part III)
-episode 20 (Part IV)
-episode 21 (Part V)

I would rather see two volumes released for the First Season. If not, then Vol.1 had better contain the first 21 episodes. I shouldn't worry though because Shout! Factory doesn't disappoint.

I wonder if this will have the unaired pilot with different actors in some of the parts. Knowing Shout Factory, I'd say this first volume will probably have 30 episodes on it. Probably no extras, though, but considering how big a part of teenage life PR was, I'll be happy with just the episode. I'll finally be able to not have to worry about finding the rest of the episodes online.

I fucking loved Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers as a kid. I even won a contest in which I received I believe a 5-VHS set of the Green Ranger's introduction, as well as a toy replica of the Dragon Dagger (I think that's what it was called). With that said, as a 25 year old man, I don't know how well these would hold up for me, even when factoring in the nostalgia. Might give the first volume a try just to see.

I'm so unbelievably excited about this. I have the German sets of the first four seasons (including Zeo) and am looking forward to finally being able to watch these on a non-region free DVD player! I read on a PR site that the person in charge of the DVD releases mentioned something about getting 10 episodes on a disc and having them still maintaining their quality. So this could be half the seasons, lets hope!

Wow. This is great news. Hard to believe, but this August will make 19 years since MMPR premiered.

I remember getting hold of VHS tapes with episodes of "Zyuranger," the Japanese series which provided MMPR with its action footage, and showing them to my daughter and the neighbor kids after MMPR had been on for a few weeks. They were astounded. One of the kids kept saying, "My friends aren't gonna believe me when I tell them I saw this." And guess what? They didn't! Except for one girl who noticed that the Yellow Ranger's costume didn't have a skirt which backed up the neighbor boy's story that the Yellow Ranger in the Japanese original was a guy.

Wouldn't it be great if they included some original Japanese episodes--with subtitles!--as bonus episodes in these sets?

I am absolutely getting that 40-DVD set! I've been waiting YEARS for US releases of this show and am such a huge fan! I imported the first 4 seasons from Germany (and got my season 1 autographed by Jason Narvy, a.k.a. Skull) but I will gladly rebuy them for the region 1 (and English audio that those 3 episodes on season 1 did not have).

I've been watching every season, but I still like to go back to the original season every so often and those episodes always bring a smile to my face. Except when I think about Thuy Trang (Trini, the original Yellow Ranger) and her tragic fate. Then it's tears, not smiles.

The current season, Power Rangers Super Samurai, is now on Nickelodeon.

Here's an update about S1-S7 in a set.

Your favorite childhood show has morphenomenal action, adventure, and meaningful lessons for both original and young fans. Now you can relive these action-packed adventures and share them with the next generation when we unleash the ORIGINAL POWER RANGERS on DVD for the very first time! Plus, you'll get exclusive in-depth bonus content, including a retrospective featurette on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers phenomenon, brand new interviews with the cast and creative teams, and much, much more!

Emphasizing the importance of teamwork, fitness, responsibility and helping others, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers follows the thrilling and humorous adventures of ordinary teens who "morph" into extraordinary superheroes over the course of three seasons. The adventures continue with Power Rangers Zeo, as the team takes on a new member, new zords, and meets new challenges and enemies. Then shift into Power Rangers Turbo, with the fastest team yet! Next, "Let's Rocket!" as we blast off for Power Rangers In Space; then we'll "Go Galactic!" as we join a new team in unexplored territory with Power Rangers Lost Galaxy. Order your own incredible POWER RANGERS box set today!
A few hours ago today, TimeLife.com began accepting pre-orders for their 40-DVD collection of Power Rangers - Seasons 1-7: From Mighty Morphin to Lost Galaxy. You'll get 338 episodes which aired from 1993 to 1999, plus tons of bonus material including 2 DVDs completely dedicated to extras.

Additionally, with this title you'll also get a rare Bandai-made action figure of Morphin Red Ranger (Jason) wearing the "Dragon Shield" (which, in case you've forgotten, is the golden shoulder pad/chestpiece assembly) usually seen on the Morphin Green Ranger (Tommy). You can see a high-res image of this action figure at the bottom, complete with accessory sword and blaster. This toy was once available for collectors, but not for a long time; it is currently available exclusively from Time Life with the purchase of this title. And don't think this combination of Red and Green Ranger uniforms is simply out-of-the-blue; it is taken directly from two Mighty Morphin: Season 1 episodes: "Birds of a Feather" and "Clean-Up Club"...both of which you can watch on these discs!

Note that there is NOT any overall "slipcase" packaging for this title: these are the same sets that Shout! Factory will be selling individually, and 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. The price is $219.95 SRP, which may sound like a lot at first, but at 40 discs it breaks down to just $5.49 per DVD. Or, putting bonus stuff aside, it's just 65 per episode...$31.42 per season. And standard shipping is available for free. It's a great value, any way you look at it. And if you cannot afford the entire $219.95 cost at once, you can break it down into 5 easy installments of $43.99 per payment. Sounds good to us!

The current planned ship date is August 6th, just a week later than what we originally reported. Time Life, Shout! Factory and Saban are working on getting a full press release to us soon; stay tuned for that!

I hope that they do get around to putting out the whole run of the show, as this is just the first seven seasons. I want at least up to Mystic Force. After hearing about it, it will be a kick to see Rita as the main, Zordon-like good guy leader of the power rangers.

Unfortunately, there's no option for just the 19 disc set. The 40 Disc Set is being broken into 2 collections. "Mighty Morphin", with the image of the slipcover posted above, consisting of 19 discs and Seasons 4-7 consisting of the other 21 discs. Purchasing the 40 Disc Collection is the only way to own the 19 disc set of just "Mighty Morphin" unless of course you choose to wait for the individual seasons/volumes of those releases.

It may be available at some point in general stores but I understand why it's split up like that. MMPR was it's own series and then Zeo, Turbo, In Space and Lost Galaxy were their own series. So the first 3 seasons were MMPR so that would get it's own box. Now having the other 4 seasons boxed together makes no sense. I guess for the people buying the 40 disc set it's better doing it that way, but I don't see seasons 4 - 7 being boxed together when they eventually make their way to general stores.

In addition to the 40 disc Mega Set, The entire first season will be released in its own collection in a 6 disc collection. No details or dates have been revealed for that release yet though. I know it seems a little confusing with so many different versions being released so let me try to break it down:

1) Time Life is releasing the 40 Disc Mega Set consisting of 2 collections ("Mighty Morphin" which encompasses 19 discs, two of which are bonus features and "Seasons 4-7" consisting of 21 discs where 1 will be for bonus features).

2) Shout! Factory (at this time) will be releasing Season 1, Volume 1 this August with Season 1, Volume 2 to follow in the fall. It looks like Shout!'s own release strategy will be breaking the seasons into volumes to minimize cost and disc count for the more casual shopper.

3) A full "Season 1" collection consisting of 6 discs will be released as well although a release date and details have not been revealed yet for it. It is uncertain whether this collection will be available exclusively through Time Life or via Shout!'s website or other online/store retailers.

Loved Power Rangers growing up. Even though the episodes are all the same, you gotta love the Bulk and Skull moments. Especially in the second season when they try to uncover the secret identities of the power rangers.

The mini-series episodes were awesome though. The five part intro to the green ranger was good but i loved the two parter "Green No More" and of course the three part season two premiere with the introduction of Lord Zedd. I remember that was the first time power rangers aired in prime-time.

Oh and Amy Jo Johnson in a leotard :drool:

Still on the fence of buying the complete series sets.

I haven't ordered the DVD set yet, but I did dig out my VHS tapes to watch some episodes for the Sci-Fi Challenge (see separate list thread). I watched the 3-part "The Wedding" in which Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa get married. Interestingly, Part 1 is the last episode in which we see footage of Rita as played in the Japanese original by Machiko Soga. At some point in the three-parter, I believe in episode 2, the character undergoes a makeover to look younger, and comes out being played by a new actress, Carla Perez, in all-new, American-shot scenes. (Machiko Soga had played the character in only one Japanese season, "Zyurangers," so the American producers had simply run out of footage. In subsequent seasons, starting with "Turbo," they would change the American show every season to match the Japanese show.)

Personally, I think it's a steal at that price. Your getting 338 episodes which consists of 7 seasons altogether plus 3 of the discs that are packed with special features such as retrospective interviews. In addition, the sets come with a pretty hefty booklet that gives details of each episode and you also get the exclusive action figure. I know it's a lot to drop on one purchase but if you ask me, it's more than worth it.

Well, Shout does in fact have the rights to every season of the show up until RPM. The latest season and beyond is with Lionsgate. I believe Shout's plan in the future is to release another massive box set that covers Lightspeed Rescue to RPM. It should be really exciting to follow their progress on the remainder of the show.

The Lost Episode is the second pilot. Audri DuBois was in the first.

I'm wondering if you ever actually watched this...? Audri DuBois was in The Lost Episode that was hosted by Austin and Walter. It aired on TV. I actually saw it when I was a kid and have it on VHS tape.

Just go to the Wiki if you still don't get it:

Or go to Youtube and look at the promos which very obviously have DuBois playing Trini.

Can't wait for this. When I was a kid (Well, 13), Power Rangers was my favourite show. I can't wait to watch the dvds. Hopefully, they'll do another set with the next 7 seasons.

So I didn't realize until reading the review on here that the individual volumes weren't going to have the extras at all. That was part of the appeal for me to want to buy these. I don't really want to have to buy the whole damn box set for it either as I really only like Mighty Morphin and In Space.

My sets just got here. I haven't watched them yet, though. But the packaging is great. Not quite as sparkly as the JEM sets Shout Factory did, the boxes are still incredible quality. I'm a bit disappointed by the "exclusive Power Rangers figure" that comes with the set. From the pictures online, I was thinking it would a lot bigger than it actually is. I was expecting something like the large PR figures that came out years ago. Not quite as big as a barbie/gi Joe, but bigger than the little 80s gi Joes. The figure is actually only slightly bigger than an 80s gi joe. It does look cool, though.

Got my set early morning. The toy is okay but i never wanted it anyways. Watched a few episodes and i find the Bulk and Skull stuff the best part. They're also better actors than the rangers :lol:

Also Amy Jo Johnson is still :drool:

Well, I've watched the first 10 or 11 episodes, and I have to say the quality is great. Definitely a LOT better than what you would have seen on tv in 1992. With 10 episodes on each disc, I would have thought there'd be a lot of compression. But I haven't seen any artifacts. At least, not that I noticed. The audio is standard stereo. A bit hollow sounding, but the All Channel Stereo setting on my surround sound makes it sound a lot better. I'm sure it would sound just fine through tv speakers, though.

I'm happy with how great the VHS specials look. But by far, the coolest feature is the Galaxy Rangers easter egg. Could watch that over and over again, with how awesome/hilarious it is.

Okay, I'm a bit slow here. I haven't ordered anything yet. I want to order the big box set, the one that has, like, 7 seasons, but when I went to Shout's site all I could find was Season 1, Vol. 1. And that's all I found on Amazon.

How does one order the larger box set?

Thanks.

I can't wait to get to Space and Lost Galaxy. After the original team, Lightspeed, Wild Force, and Time Force, those are my favourite seasons. I'm really hoping that Shout does more sets with the next 7 seasons of the show.

From Ranger Crew:
The next Shout! PR set containing Lightspeed to (probably) Wild Force will be out sometime next year. The set may or may not include NS

I'm hoping they'll do Ninja Storm, Dino Thunder, SPD, and at least Mystic Force. The other series would be alright, too.

Not that I'm complaining, but I am slightly surprised that the PSA's that used to air on Fox Kids aren't on here.
The Bulk and Skull PSA is on The Good, The Bad, and The Stupid after the end credits. That one was always my favorite, so at least that's on there.

Cool, but umm... how much?

LosingMyMind
07-18-13, 02:44 PM
Probably a lot. I would hope for no more than $450, but it'll probably be $500-$600. I wouldn't even consider getting it, but the set is going to have some exclusive special features that aren't part of the other mega sets.

I guess the press release doesn't state it, but the helmet also has two empty slots to slide in the movies as well.
