Pokemon has been my main obsession since it came to the States in 1998, but one other franchise with Japanese roots that captured my heart at even earlier age is Power Rangers. Power Rangers is currently on its 20th/21st season, and in the new season this year, which adapts Japanese footage from Super Sentai’s 35th season Gokaiger, the current team of Rangers gains the ability to morph into the suits of every older Power Ranger. Because of this, and because my boyfriend and I have been watching the series from the beginning on DVD throughout the last year, I put my Pokemon TCG collecting on hold to try to get an action figure of every single Power Ranger or Ranger-like ally. Here is my progress so far:
It’s Morphin Time! (Missing: Billy)

Ninja Ranger Power! (Missing: Ninjor and the Alien Rangers)
It’s Morphin Time! Power Rangers ZEO!
