Green Ranger vs. White Ranger

February 12, 2010 19 comments

Probably one of the biggest discussions of anything related to Power Rangers.  Other than the Jason the Red Ranger, who would win in a fight? The Green Ranger or the White Ranger?  Seeing as both are leaders and both are just indescribably cool it’s such a hard decision.   So what I’m going to do today is try and figure out which is better.  Also who was a better leader, Tommy as the Green Ranger or Tommy as the White Ranger?

Form:

The green ranger has a modified helmet of the Red Ranger, seeing as in the Sentai series that it was adapted from the Green Ranger and Red Ranger were brothers.  The Green Ranger has his Gold chestplate and bearings around his arms, which is totally cool.  Especially with all the episodes were different Rangers had the Green Ranger gold chest.

Now the white ranger has the kick ass helmet signaling the leader ranger, since when the White Ranger came into the series he practically took over Jason’s position as the leader.  Now he resembles an eagle, appealing to the American culture.  With the same Gold colors.  Seems bigger though and in a fight seems like all this gear would weigh someone down.

Winner: Green Ranger

The Zord:

Probably one of the most “F*** YEAH” zords ever to be brought out into a battle.  You know when you heard that Green Ranger play his Dragon Dagger.  The colors are awesome.  The form is awesome.  The guy had his own Zord that was capable of fighting 5 zords in one.  This would even turn a 5 part Zord into a 6 part, creating a Overkill effect, just look how awesome this is.

The White Rangers zord was alright but seemed weak.  It was designed to be 1/5 of a 5 part zord.  So of course it was going to be smaller than the Dragon Zord.  The chest area of the Zord is pretty slick featuring the White Tiger Zord head.

The Winner:  Green Ranger

Background/Leadership skills:

The Green Ranger originated as a Villan in the series.  He was defeated though by the Red Ranger, and came to his senses.   The idea of a even cooler looking ranger who was evil and then decides to join the team was just awesome.  Note: Another F*** YEAH! moment.  He still was under Jason’s leadership and seemed to be less powerful than he was as the evil Green Ranger.  The Green Ranger has the Dragon Dagger used as a flute to bring in the Dragon Zord.

Probably one of the best Leaders in history.   A ranger with powers that could not be made evil. The white ranger brought the team through many stages.  He was always positive and was a great contribution to the team.  He fought for justice and knew his right.  He was the best Leader ranger ever.  The White Ranger holds Saba, the talking White Tiger sword.

The Winner:  White Ranger

Final Conclusion:

Both are amongst the best of the best for Rangers, heck they’re the same guy.  But for some retro is just is better.  The White Ranger was too child friendly and too Perfect Warrior like.  The Green Ranger is just that awesome bad ranger turned good, he’s hardcore.  His Dagger, Zord, even his outfit makes you wish you had that Gold chest plate.   You know back in the 90s every kid wanted to be the Green Ranger.  So altogether 2/3 for Green, 1/3 for White.

The Winner:

Why there isn’t a new Power Rangers for 2010?

February 11, 2010 3 comments

I’ve been doing some research on line as to why we haven’t heard anything recently about a new Power Rangers.

Now Wikipedia states that Disney said that Power Rangers Rpm was to be the final Power Rangers installment.  Now some of this seems true.  The Japan team helping with the training has returned to Japan, one of the producers for the show left for Aaron Stone, and the 2009, Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, is WAY too Japanese to adapt.  It could be changed around, Turbo was nothing like the original in japan and they just made up stories and after while they ran out of stock footage.   There has already been a Ninja series, I don’t see why a Samurai one wouldn’t fit, kids love learning about Samurais and other japanese culture.

Now there have been rumors that their might be a newer Power Rangers once there is a new Super Sentai that is adaptable.   Even the remastering of Mighty Morphin has given light to the situation.  What my theory is that Disney will be playing Mighty Morphin until they can think up some way for a new series.  The only one really that COULD be adapted might be Goseiger.

Now this show could be adapted, but we won’t know anything until Disney releases some info.

New Kamen Rider Dragon Knight for 2010?

Alot of castings are going off and apparently Kamen Rider is listed as “On-Hiatus” for Cartoon Network.

Check here

What’s surprising is that this isn’t the only news for a New Kamen Rider series in America.

Bandai is going to be creating more Kamen Rider toys throughout 2010, here’s what they stated on the official Bandai site:

Bandai America Incorporated will continue to distribute the Kamen Rider Dragon Knight toys/products in 2010. We will maintain our support for our long-term partner, Adness Entertainment, and Kamen Rider Dragon Knight.

Now isn’t that a little weird that Bandai is going to continue to create more Kamen Rider products even though the show is “canceled.”

Now there talk at once of a Kamen Rider Dragon Knight movie to be produced but since the show has been canceled the talk has stopped but with this news it might bring back a movie into the picture.

What I’m guessing is that Cartoon Network is trying to improve CNReal by bringing Kamen Rider into the line up, from there they’re hoping to improve on ratings and hopefully we’ll see either a new Kamen Rider series or a Kamen Rider movie.
