So, if you have Power Ranger stuff on your newsfeed, this just kinda exploded all over the place this morning. The new movie suits, for the new reboot movie coming out next year, have finally been released!
I am… torn.
First of all, I like (most) of the actual suit itself. I liked the original movie armor over the t.v. show spandex, and this is a big move in the right direction. I was really afraid we would get spandex in this new movie, so right off the bat, I am super pleased!
I’m pleased the Pink Ranger doesn’t have a skirt.
I’m not pleased that she and the Yellow Ranger have a heel on their boot, but it’s not a Batgirl-esque heel, so I can deal.
I wish there was a belt, but again… I can deal.
I like the chrome highlights. I think these suits look powerful, and I can’t wait to see them in action.
There is one thing that, at the moment, I do not like.
The helmets. The Red Ranger and Pink Ranger are the only two helmets where I can “see” the dinosaur that makes them up. And frankly, they all look too similar.
Still, I’m thrilled to see this sneak peek, and I’m okay with them changing things up. This is a reboot, after all, not a remake, so things do need to be a bit different.
I just want to see dinosaurs on those helmets!
