Yes, it’s that time again… time to archive more Power Rangers revelations. These are mostly facts, rumors, and trivia surrounding the history and storylines of the TV series. Feel free to check out the previous installments: Part 1 & Part 2…
Superpower1979: But here’s something you didn’t know.. Ryan and Trip were in Forever Red, cut scenes.
Cyrax9: I heard Max was i the Hummer in another as well.
Jnkhill1480: what scenes? do you know?
Jnkhill1480: hey…how come i don’t know about this….
Superpower1979: There was a scene where Wes and Eric contacted the future to see if the fight would interfere with the timeline
Jnkhill1480: how’d you find out about it?
Digimansion02: how else
Jnkhill1480: Oh, yeah.
Superpower1979: and the other scene was at the Lightspeed Aquabase, apparently rebuilt. where Ryan was the new Captian
Superpower1979: The Wild Force originally got more screentime as well, that was cut too.

SirStack: “Early script drafts for “Reinforcements From The Future” imply they desired using the Gaoranger movie Duke Orgs, but since they didn’t have the suits, they used hybrids for the Mut-Orgs. It was either that or harken back to season 2 and use horrible footage cutting & pasting to try to imply they’re fighting the two teams of Rangers. Smarter to use what you have instead of pretending to have what you don’t. ”
CLFunaro: Bandai footed the bill for Ryan.
CLFunaro: Random fact in the PRLR credits sequence.
CLFunaro: Look at the skyline behind Ryan.
CLFunaro: That’s Tokyo.
CLFunaro: Test footage Rainbow did of the suit in action, we think.
CLFunaro: Video mastered, thus why it doesn’t look much like PR or Sentai.
Superpower1979: What was the Titanium Ranger doing in Tokyo?
CLFunaro: The suit was made in Tokyo.
CLFunaro: You guys noticed the original Titanium suit was all… Shiny like a Toei suit, right?
CLFunaro: Lasted for two eps.
CLFunaro: It WAS a suit like Toei got, made by Rainbow Productions in Japan.
CLFunaro: Fitted to Rhett — thus why it looked baggy on the suit actor in stunts.
Superpower1979: Then why aren’t they shiny in PR footage?
CLFunaro: The suits cost a ton of money.
CLFunaro: It’s the only JP suit to be used on PR for a Ranger.
navythunderrngr: yeah what, is the material difference. PR uses generic Lycra right? so sentai…?
CLFunaro: It’s a form of spandex they can’t make in the US.
CLFunaro: I know that, they’ve tried.
CLFunaro: It’s a brand name, I think.
Superpower1979: But aren’t the Hurricanger suits on lend to VRKP?
CLFunaro: Yeah, they’re leasing them.
CLFunaro: Which is just…
CLFunaro: I GUESS it’s cheaper than fabricating.
CLFunaro: All PR helmets needed new master molds struck.
CLFunaro: (I know for a fact some of these were destroyed in the Disney buyout, thus my panic the sky was falling…)
Superpower1979: What was destroyed in the Disney buyout?
CLFunaro: Master molds for helmets, that I can verify from someone in props.
CLFunaro: The stock cars they refit for seasons, too.
Superpower1979: Why’d they burn them?
CLFunaro: The Rover. :~(
fireforce112383: why did disney destroy everything anyways
CLFunaro: Beats me.
CLFunaro: They didn’t destroy a LOT, just…
CLFunaro: Anything that wasn’t going to be sold to staff, on ebay, or be retained in storage was junkable.
navythunderrngr: idiots!, I want a PR museum
CLFunaro: So Goldar and shit are still in a warehouse in the desert.
CLFunaro: PR had three enormous warehouses.
CLFunaro: Just… Saban kept EVERYTHING.
CLFunaro: Disney, understandably, wanted that space.
Digimansion02: Chris, all this never used episode stuff sparked a recent question,whas Dream Force Angels?
CLFunaro: Also known as Dream Force Princesses…
CLFunaro: The Girly Mystic Knights for Fox Girlznet.
CLFunaro: Ali’s first work for Saban.
CLFunaro: Four girls, all hot, who fight crime in bodices.
CLFunaro: Circa PRLG.
Digimansion02: were any Dream Force episodes filmed?
CLFunaro: Yes, and it made it to the pilot stage, I know that.
CLFunaro: Should have somebody ask Ali if she did beyond that.
CLFunaro: Any show with Ali’s booooooosoms on display is aces with my crew.
CubeRanger: Ashley is the ugliest girl Ranger ever.
CubeRanger: ::waits for disagreement::
CubeRanger: I’m kidding.
CubeRanger: Ashley was pretty.
CubeRanger: Someone got thrown of the set because he said he impregnated her.
CubeRanger: Anyone remember thaT?
Superpower1979: I heard that too.
CubeRanger: I think it was like a 15 year old kid.
CubeRanger: Max something.
CubeRanger: They used to talk about it all the time in the newsgroup.
CubeRanger: The kid would deliver all the latest info.
CubeRanger: He used to write a newsletter too.
Superpower1979: I probably wasn’t around for that.
Superpower1979: But I heard it screwed fan relations for a while.
CubeRanger: It was back in Turbo, I wasn’t either. I did a search in the google groups.
CubeRanger: The kid played a character on Buffy recently.
CubeRanger: And had deleted scenes in Catch Me If You Can
Superpower1979: I heard Kat had stalkers.
CubeRanger: Amy Jo Johnson quit Power Rangers because of the stress it put her under. So she probably had stalkers too.
CubeRanger: Infact, she and Steve Cardenas were at a shopping mall promoting the movie, and she wouldn’t come out of her dressing room. Steve told her that she could stay inside, and disapoint hundreds of kids. Or she could come out, and greet
CubeRanger: all the fans that came to see her.
CubeRanger: She came out, but said when they got back home she needed to make a few changes, and wah-lah a few months later bye bye Kimberly.
Superpower1979: I heard Patricia Ja Lee was injured on the set, but Saban still made her finish up the day, and she had to drive herself to the hospital.
CubeRanger: I heard that too,.
Dr Victor Adler: i wonder why they dropped the Divatox/Dimitria storyline in Turbo
Superpower1979: I’m sure it had something to do with Hillary Sheppard reprising the role.
CLFunaro: Chip didn’t wanna do it, and Hilard was back…
CLFunaro: Hilary, bah
CLFunaro: They [Transformers fans] accept separate but equal canon statuses
CLFunaro: This fandom NEVER has.
Dr Victor Adler: Well, it’s hard when there’s only one continuity for it.
Dr Victor Adler: I wonder if they’ll be able to carry on one continuity forever.
CLFunaro: It’s PR’s greatest strength AND greatest weakness.
Superpower1979: Well, one good thing about continuity is, it’s one of the few things that sets it apart from Sentai.
CLFunaro: Like Dr. Who, PR becomes impossible to “get into” past a certain point.
CLFunaro: Roadshow had a five year contract. Assuming Disney honors it…
CLFunaro: PR will hit 620 eps or so.
CLFunaro: That’s 80 short of Who.
CLFunaro: Who took twenty five years to get there.
Superpower1979: Well, it can always be renewed if things go well.
CLFunaro: But you see my point.
CLFunaro: That’s REMARKABLY.
CLFunaro: I think, when PR hits the fifteen anniversary…
CLFunaro: Do it, end it.
CLFunaro: Like DC comics.
Superpower1979: Why end it?
CLFunaro: And for the twentieth anniversary, we GO BACK to Earth-1 for a crossover.
CLFunaro: Digimon had to end the Adventure continuity after 02.
Superpower1979: yeah, Digimon was more complex than PR.
CLFunaro: It had gotten, in the space of two years, so convoluted and overburdened that it could NOT sequel itself.
CLFunaro: PR has hit saturation, I feel.
CLFunaro: Give us a new dimension, and give us a new Zordon figure, new mysteries, etc.
CLFunaro: Don’t say “it doesn’t matter anymore,” say…
CLFunaro: “We loved it so much we’re afraid we’re just going to keep cheapening it, so we’re going to try something new.”
Superpower1979: Well they try to keep it fresh, even with the continuity that every so often gets the chance to show up.
CLFunaro: Right, but you see my point here.
CLFunaro: PR can’t suddenly say…
CLFunaro: “This is Lord Bukaa — he was more powerful than Zordon, and has been around twenty thousand years.”
CLFunaro: If you suddenly minimize Zordon, the fans… Will hate you.
CLFunaro: Conversely, in ANOTHER DIMENSION, they won’t care. They’ll like world building then.
Superpower1979: Well they don’t have to say that he’s more powerful than Zordon.
CLFunaro: But you see my point, I think.
Superpower1979: Yeah, even though I thought Wild Force and Gaoranger over did it a bit on the amount of Zords, I wish they would’ve used the Gao Knight footage at least once.
CLFunaro: They wanted to.
Superpower1979: What stopped them?
CLFunaro: Lack of time, as I understand it. Also, no suit.
CLFunaro: And yeah, you can color correct Kongazord and pretend…
CLFunaro: But that looked cheap when they did it to Demonite’s clone.
CLFunaro: And also, he didn’t have a hockey mask.
Dr Victor Adler: They could’ve just used Sentai footage.
Superpower1979: Well, I guess you can only do so much footage with 40 episodes.
CLFunaro: * is checking something *
CLFunaro: I think I recall WHY they didn’t use Fire Mountain Howls at all, despite the lack of the suits in the US…
Dr Victor Adler: Really?
CLFunaro: The Dukes were going to be the Mutorgs.
Superpower1979: That would’ve been cool.
CLFunaro: * checks, looks *
CLFunaro: I think the idea was (if they used series footage and not film) that they’d have done something with Volcano Aurg and Fire Monkey — but they didn’t want an Org embodying nature used.
CLFunaro: This has been a while, I may be off somewhat.
CLFunaro: And, you know, no suit.
Superpower1979: ahhh, yeah.. it sounds like they had a lot of reasons
CLFunaro: Shame, but I know Derik was delighted.
Superpower1979: Why was he delighted?
CLFunaro: He really, really loves Ultimus.
CLFunaro: He wanted Gao Panda, and for the US to actually DO Grizzly…
CLFunaro: But they basically made the color corrections he wanted to the Bison.
CLFunaro: Ultimus was his baby.
CLFunaro: When we found out Fire Monkey was getting a toy anyway, he started yelling at a mutual friend in Bandai.
CLFunaro: The orange and black striped Tigershark was his compromise for Grizzly…
CLFunaro: Ultimately Sharky himself just got used.
CLFunaro: The motorized Bison was SUPPOSED to be Aurochzord.
CLFunaro: Stupid packaging people.
Superpower1979: I thought that was weird for them to recolor everything like that.
CLFunaro: The intent was “all-US Wildzords along with Red Ape.”
Superpower1979: And we never got the Elephant because of it.
CLFunaro: That didn’t all come together.
CLFunaro: As I understand it, we weren’t EVER getting Elephant.
CLFunaro: Bandai US just didn’t want to release it.
Superpower1979: Really? any particular reason?
CLFunaro: Not that I ever got, just “we didn’t want to use it.”
Superpower1979: The Elephant was one of my favorites.
CLFunaro: (I find it amusing, per the Sentai art book, what originally was meant to be GaoMammoth became Revolver Mammoth)
Dr Victor Adler: Yeah they didn’t release the Mighty Mammoth either.
Superpower1979: There was a GaoMammoth?
CLFunaro: The art book Will Maberry scanned had a bunch of Gao animals they’d pitched in the planning stages, or designed.
Superpower1979: Crazy.. I heard they actually intended to release 100 Power Animals originally.
Dr Victor Adler: Is it true that the Blast Dragons were remodeled from the Zyu2 Zord sketches?
CLFunaro: * shrug *
CLFunaro: And dammit, don’t call them that. If John was here I’d beat him SO MUCH for it. 😉
CLFunaro: Zyu-Dai Hybrid, or if you have to, Zyu3. I prefer hybrid.
CLFunaro: See, if MMPR Prod. had had enough lead time…
CLFunaro: I think they should have worked something out with Bandai JP and Toei.
CLFunaro: “So, we’re gonna reuse Serpentera this season.”
CLFunaro: “Any desire to do a BIG Gao Serpent toy, that’s evil?”
CLFunaro: Venjix tricked it out.
CLFunaro: Of course, I’m stupid this way.
CLFunaro: I always thought Saban should have sent a Zedd costume to Japan.
CLFunaro: “We’re paying for one monster. Saving you hundreds of thousands.”
Superpower1979: That might have worked, I wasn’t too thrilled with the cgi design they made.
CLFunaro: “Please use him as a monster du jour. Don’t feel beholden to our use of Zedd.”
CLFunaro: Understand, FR’s budget was slashed repeatedly.
Dr Victor Adler: Why was it slashed?
CLFunaro: They couldn’t hire an outside studio to do Serpentera, as was intended.
CLFunaro: PRWF kept getting its budget undercut by Disney.
Superpower1979: ahh, that sucks
CLFunaro: And they had… Weeks to get the CG done.
Superpower1979: I wonder why they kept cutting it.
CLFunaro: Whereas the US Wildzords do look JP-accurate.
CLFunaro: Disney didn’t want to pay what Saban did.
Superpower1979: And here I thought Saban was cheap.
CLFunaro: PRNS’s budget is smaller than any past season. The move to New Zealand was the only way to keep the show in the black.
CLFunaro: Saban actually paid quite a bit for the show over the years.
CLFunaro: PRNS had a nice ad budget, but… Disney doesn’t mind that stuff.
Superpower1979: It must be a lot cheaper to do things in NZ, because production value seems to be up this year.
CLFunaro: It is.
CLFunaro: Their CG is world reknowned.
CLFunaro: Plus, you save a ton if you don’t have to maintain the suits.
CLFunaro: Of course, MMPR prod. wasted money with the scourge of the series.
CLFunaro: City fights.
CLFunaro: Oh god, the money they wasted on city fights.
CLFunaro: * hits head *
CLFunaro: Nobody cares, past a certain point.
Superpower1979: city fights cost more?
CLFunaro: You have to block off blocks of downtown LA.
CLFunaro: And get major clearance to use explosives.
CLFunaro: Insurance, coordination, lighting…
CLFunaro: It’s like eight times what an Angel Grove Park fight runs, at the low end.
Superpower1979: Yeah, PRNS didn’t have much city fights I noticed, but fortunately, neither did Hurricanger.
CLFunaro: City fights are great when it’s Countdown.
CLFunaro: When it’s WEEKLY?
CLFunaro: Well, PRNS did a couple. All About Beevil leaps to mind.
CLFunaro: But that was so fucking beautiful, I forgive.
CLFunaro: I think they gave PRLR their all, but they knew PRTF was going to have this huge media push across the board.
CLFunaro: So they didn’t do what they did for Galaxy.
CLFunaro: There was no investment for a cast that won’t carry over, irrelevant stories…
CLFunaro: I wonder at what point they decided to cut Ryan.
Superpower1979: ahhh, yeah. I noticed that PRLR didn’t really stand in comparison to PRLG in some aspects.
CLFunaro: If nothing else, I give Chip credit for that idea.
Dr Victor Adler: They cut Ryan?
CLFunaro: I was never sure if they would cut Timefire out entirely, or always keep him a semi-antagonist.
CLFunaro: Also note the US-Quantum design they used heavily in promotion.
CLFunaro: I think what they wanted to DO with Timefire was in flux.
CLFunaro: And Titanium had a great suit, and only needed a new belt buckle.
CLFunaro: He was to debut with the Time Shadow.
Superpower1979: That would’ve been interesting.
CLFunaro: Well, look at how the Time Shadow arrives.
CLFunaro: And eclipse… Of the sun.
CLFunaro: Cute narrative tie.
Dr Victor Adler: Did they not like Time Fire, because of the similarities to Red?
CLFunaro: I think that was the main logic.
CLFunaro: People ask why Cam never popped the helmet rather than remove it…
CLFunaro: Duh, they won’t make new helmets.
CLFunaro: Stupid hobbitses.
Superpower1979: Yeah, they could’ve made a suggestion to Toei on that one.
Superpower1979: To make Shurikenger’s helmet openable, even though they would have no use for it.
CLFunaro: I’m reminded of a story from the old days, about the PR/Sentai staff conferences in Japan.
CLFunaro: “Why didn’t you just ask Toei–”
CLFunaro: And I’m stopped.
CLFunaro: “Look — nobody TELLS Toei to do anything. We ask nicely, or we have Bandai do it for us.”
CLFunaro: “We TOLD Toei to do Zyu2. And they did it with super high production values, new Zord summonings and poses…”
CLFunaro: “And we paid through the nose for it.”
CLFunaro: Saban basically paid for half a season of Zyuranger, rather than just some cheapo monster fights.
CLFunaro: That’s… Evil brilliance.
CLFunaro: Incidentally, Roger Velasco is making porn movies now.
CLFunaro: I just found this out.
CLFunaro: His gimmick is, and I swear to god…
CLFunaro: He does a woman, and then farts on her.
CLFunaro: God bless America.
CLFunaro: Disney didn’t buy Saban for PR.
CLFunaro: They bought it for Fox Family.
CLFunaro: Disney had NO IDEA what to do with PR for months.
CLFunaro: Some great stories to be told one day, once gag orders end.
CLFunaro: Everyone wishes PRTF had more time travel in it.
CLFunaro: The writers wanted that.
CLFunaro: My god, we didn’t get a five-part “lost in time” miniseries so we could get Movie Madness.
CLFunaro: That fucking OFFENDS ME.
Superpower1979: yeah, that would have been nice
Superpower1979: I loved Movie Madness and all, but that would’ve been cool.
CLFunaro: I think you can see most of what it would have been in its original form.
CLFunaro: Eric and Circuit desperately trying to get the team back…
Superpower1979: and what was with Time for Lightspeed? It seemed incredibly rushed, and I’ve seen Timeranger vs Gogo Five.. and while I’m not one to push Sentai plots, it was really good compared to what we got
CLFunaro: If it’s Forever Red?
CLFunaro: If it’s an event which DEMANDS epic treatment and a big budget?
CLFunaro: Then yes.
CLFunaro: If it’s “annual crossover?” No.
CLFunaro: Time For Lightspeed — two episodes of plot hastily rewritten to be one.
CLFunaro: It was gonna climax with the wedding. :~(
Puperazzi: Now that would have been good.
Superpower1979: another budget cut I assume?
CLFunaro: Time Force didn’t get the “back sixteen” picked up.
CLFunaro: And, you know, the movie was never made because of that SAG thing.
navythunderrngr: why in the world was the gingaman henshin sequence used in trakeenas revenge?.. anyone know?
Superpower1979: yeah, I was wondering that myself.
Superpower1979: They already had the Lost Galaxy morphs, yet all the sudden it’s Gingaman.
Superpower1979: very weird.
DavidGoode: You mean when they turned the dial on their morphers to their respective colors before morphing?
CLFunaro: Bad editing.
CLFunaro: Remember, Trakeena’s Revenge was raced through production in time for the premium.
CLFunaro: They had a week and a half post-prod, IIRC.
CLFunaro: They had to get them shipped nation-wide, and even THAT was a crock of shit.
Superpower1979: yeah, that mcdonald’s thing was dumb
DavidGoode: Then maybe they should’ve just forgot the whole thing.
CLFunaro: Not really possible.
CLFunaro: They had a contract.
CLFunaro: And you don’t break that shit, not with McDonalds.
CLFunaro: Kendrix and Leo had the romantic music.
CLFunaro: That’s as maintext as PR gets.
Trickstyle182x: it couldnt get build on cuz kendrix left the show
CLFunaro: Yes, I am aware.
Trickstyle182x: i know your aware.
DavidGoode: They could’ve built on it before then.
Superpower1979: I wanted the Ancient Rangers saga.
CLFunaro: They were too busy badly adapting Gingaman plots in 13 eps.
Superpower1979: Yeah, but they didn’t expect her to get sick.
CLFunaro: And now she’s working at a Denny’s in Pasadena…
CLFunaro: Poor Val.
Superpower1979: It would’ve been great.
Puperazzi: Denny’s is no place for her!
Trickstyle182x: are u serious chris!??
CLFunaro: Last I heard.
DavidGoode: That would’ve been interesting, with an Ancient Rangers saga. Kind of how they did the “Wild West Rangers” thing in MMPR season 2, right? Minus one of the Rangers going back in time.
CLFunaro: Well, it would have been the five Galaxy Rangers being thrown back in time via the Galaxy Book.
CLFunaro: Witnessing the final battle of the previous team.
CLFunaro: Their deaths, the capture of the three Galactabeasts by Deviot…
Superpower1979: wow, that would’ve been cool
CLFunaro: They’d have been active participants in it.
Superpower1979: I had always wondered how they would’ve done it.
Superpower1979: Was it going to be all American footage?
DavidGoode: There’s something that didn’t make much sense in Lost Galaxy, though. How did Deviot get that key for the box with the Pyscho Ranger datacards? They never explained that, or how that alien got the datacards in the first place.
Superpower1979: who said there was a key?
CLFunaro: Deviot had the key because he’d last —
CLFunaro: We saw one, Matt.
DavidGoode: He had it in his hand.
CLFunaro: He had the key to the lockbox.
Superpower1979: I forget 😛
CLFunaro: He’d last experimented on the Psychos during the “five year intermezzo.” They had apparently been stolen or something.
CLFunaro: Remember, Deviot was the original creator of the Psychos.
Superpower1979: say what?
CLFunaro: Yeah, Chip and I talked about this for a bit.
Trickstyle182x: “five year intermezzo”???
Trickstyle182x: whats that?
CLFunaro: That was always how Derik and I read their dynamic, and Chip was —
CLFunaro: “Yeah, that was basically what we were going for.”
DavidGoode: When was this? That was never explained anywhere in the entire series.
Superpower1979: Why’d he base them off the Space Rangers?
CLFunaro: Well, recall that Deviot and the Psychos kept referring to a shared past.
CLFunaro: I really didn’t think they were.
CLFunaro: Similar color scheme, but the core MMPR had the exact same.
DavidGoode: But that still doesn’t explain how he got the key, or how the alien got the datacards.
CLFunaro: He’d last experimented on the Psychos during the “five year intermezzo.” They had apparently been stolen or something.
CLFunaro: He’d gotten the datacards BACK.
CLFunaro: And then lost them again.
CLFunaro: He’d apparently just found them again on the black market.
CLFunaro: They had to scramble for backstory.
CLFunaro: But it all makes sense.
CLFunaro: Deviot in both instances made Megazords and Rangers that didn’t work without ACTIVE lifeforces to animate them.
DavidGoode: Umm, okay.. That still doesn’t make sense to me.
CLFunaro: The Rangers used monster souls, and the Megazords used Galactabeast souls.
CLFunaro: He couldn’t just… Do this stuff, he had to BASE it off things.
CLFunaro: You see how sensible this is, on the whole.
CLFunaro: GOOD retcon.
CLFunaro: The real question is where the Psychos were before Astronema got them.
CLFunaro: But that is a story for another time.
Superpower1979: Dark Specter, the Quasar Sabers.. what connection do they have?
CLFunaro: They’re active power sources to energize the Rangers/Megazords.
CLFunaro: Indeed, the Psychos could not fully die while Spec lived.
DavidGoode: Which is why they were turned into spirits, and then put into datacards, I guess.
Superpower1979: wait, so Deviot created them from Dark Specter?
Superpower1979: I guess he would’ve had to, but that would mean that he was affiliated with him as well.
DavidGoode: Which would mean that Deviot has gotten around more than it seems.
CLFunaro: You know, the five year intermezzo. Originally ten, then kicked down to five, now pretty much cemented as one.
CLFunaro: Does NOBODY remember Paulie’s notes on PRLG?
DavidGoode: Oh, so you mean that Deviot found the datacards after Countdown to Destruction, but lost them, then he searched for them on the black market?
DavidGoode: I would assume the “intermezzo” thing is the “break” between PRiS and Lost Galaxy.
Superpower1979: it was originally supposed to be the time period
CLFunaro: Given that’s what the word means, yes.
CLFunaro: I had a GREAT fic once set between Chameliac Warrior and PRiS/PRLG that set up how/why Deviot found the Psycho cards again.
Superpower1979: but future seasons counterdict it
CLFunaro: And what this “new technology” he installed was.
CLFunaro: Well, I think I can forgive five years between 1998 and 1999.
CLFunaro: Simpsons time.
CLFunaro: This is PR, I can accept that.
DavidGoode: I guess it makes more sense now, but it doesn’t explain how Deviot got the key, though. I know it explains the datacards being with the alien.
CLFunaro: He had the key because the lockbox was his.
CLFunaro: That’s why.
CLFunaro: proof of ownership.
CLFunaro: You CAN blast it open — but he had the actual key.
Superpower1979: besides, it’s not like a lockbox can’t be broken
CLFunaro: I suspect it wasn’t locked.
CLFunaro: But just… To prove it was his.
CLFunaro: After all, the alien still planned to kill Deviot.
Superpower1979: I’m actually curious.. was Deviot still a part of Trakeena in Trakeena’s Revenge?
Puperazzi: I’d say Deviot was gone after the final mutation.
CLFunaro: He was expunged, she no longer had ANY Deviot elements in her.
CLFunaro: Besides, I think we all know Final Form Deviot is the Gregory suit.
CLFunaro: He even has the cable-dreds.
Superpower1979: the Gregory suit?
DavidGoode: “Gregory suit”? I’m out of the loop, obivously..
CLFunaro: Mutiny’s, um… Brother.
CLFunaro: From Ginga/Mega.
CLFunaro: GREAT suit.
CLFunaro: He was a teched out pirate guy.
CLFunaro: He’s exactly how I’d picture technorganic Deviot.
Superpower1979: oh I get what you’re saying
CLFunaro: God, I miss Deviot.
CLFunaro: He was the man.
Superpower1979: He was pretty cool.
CLFunaro: Well, Prince whatsiface only had two forms in Ginga.
Superpower1979: Gregory is from the Gingaman vs Megaranger team up
CLFunaro: I’m just saying Gregory, another character…
CLFunaro: He looks JUST like how I’d imagine technorganic Deviot would look.
CLFunaro: And thus, if we presume Deviot was expelled from Trakeena in the final mutation…
CLFunaro: I think we can all pretend that’s what he would have looked like.
