Power Rangers Return to HAIM SABAN! + New Series Spring 2011!

Ultraman would be a cheap buy. So, It's possible but considering it's new to the generation, It's a risk.

No kidding, Tsuburaya was only asking like what? $700,000 a year or two back.

It would be dead easy for Saban to pick up compaired to a eight-nine figure deal that got the PR back.

A new movie?! Already thought about?! That is awesome.

I don't remember where, but I read off a thread on this board that there was an idea of starting off the franchise again with a movie. Then start a new series. That may became a reality.

Hell, Saban could buy Ultraman, Tomica Hero, Garo all in one swoop if Nick was interested in broadcasting it.

Sometimes things get complicated.
I highly doubt he is gonna buy Ultraman or Tomica. KRDK didn't really do well at all, and Ultraman already failed as well back in '02. I know you guys like to be blindly optimistic. But the history shows that things haven't really been good for other toku franchises on American TV. PR is the only tried and true franchise. :disappoin

Despite my utter disgust for what it's become, I cannot deny that.

1. KRDK didn't do well since it wasn't marketed properly and nothing does 'well' on 4Kids. Hence why Yugioh is failing on there and TMNT is not there anymore. Hell, It got a Daytime Emmy Nomination, It should count for something.

2. Ultraman didn't fail since it was a cheap ass dub that nobody should want to watch in the first place. Doing it with an American cast, different story is a whole new ballpark.

What's blind about it? Even when shows failed in the past, Saban continued to try to find the next PR with different adaptations. It's no stretch of the imagination to assume they might try it again, especially with how marketable certain series are now.

Anywho, I actually think it'd be neat if they did adapt something else...well if they could somehow work it into being a PR spin-off. Would love to see something like that with the Chou Seishin series.

I wonder if Nickelodeon would be able to show "A Friend in Need", even though it has Masked Rider in it. Hopefully they can also air the first 32 episodes in production order of MMPR1 without all the dung that got smeared on them. I also hope they can show episodes that they never aired on ABC Family and ToonDisney.

As for the 20-episode count for the upcoming 18th season, I think I'm going to take that with a grain of salt. One source said that there would be 26 episodes of PRDT or something, and there ended up being plenty more than that. So hopefully that will change in the final product we get.

It's cool that we'll get to see more episodes soon, especially with the second Power Morphicon convention on the horizon.

Thank you for telling me things I already knew, and I don't deny that. But despite those shortcomings on the part of their production companies, it wouldn't be advantageous for him to do so. I doubt he will.

Look at the history. The proof is in the pudding.

Saban didn't make money by being stupid. Back in the 80s and 90s he would have loved nothing better than to bring the Space sheriff series to western audiance but he knew it wouldn't sell without adaptation.
