Easily the most anticipated part of the Legacy 6.5″ Figure line is the release of the Power Rangers Zeo figures. On display at Toy Fair 2017 was the entire assortment of Power Rangers Zeo including the Build a Megazord figure, the Zeo Megazord.

The hits just keep coming with another new reveal from Bandai America’s panel at Power Morphicon!
Long awaited by many collectors, the Zeo Rangers will be the next team to receive the Legacy treatment in Bandai’s 6.5″ collector aimed line. Presumably the build-a-figure would be of the Zeo Megazord but there’s no confirmation on that currently. Though we can confirm the massive smile on Kickback’s face with that Legacy Zeo Gold Ranger reveal ;)
After Bandai of America had mentioned both at San Diego Comic Con 2014 and Power Morphicon 2014 that they were interested in making a more exciting exclusive for their appearances at New York Comic Con, today they revealed through the official @PowerRangers Twitter account their upcoming New York Comic Con 2014 Limited Exclusive. Fans of the character Tommy Oliver will be ecstatic to see an entire Power Rangers Super Megaforce Ranger Key set of all of the different Power Rangers that famed Power Rangers actor Jason David Frank has portrayed.
This limited set comes with the following Ranger Keys:
– Mighty Morphin Green Ranger
– Mighty Morphin White Ranger
– Zeo Red Ranger
– Turbo Red Ranger
– Dino Thunder Black Ranger
It is important to note that all of these keys are currently available at retail. This set will be released in limited numbers and will most likely run in the $20 price range. When more information comes available we will share it.

We will have SO MUCH MORE on our coverage for this year’s San Diego Comic Con 2014 in the coming weeks. Stay tuned to TokuNation.com, the only site you need for all your SDCC 2014 news, updates, and live coverage!
The original trio of the Talkin Toku Podcast are back together for the first time in a month! Join Kickback (Chris, @rankal), Den-O (Jordan, @DenO_Tokunation), and Sentai Tamashii (Tom, @SoulInkChu)) in their latest adventure of discussing all things tokusatsu! The last time the group was together was before events like NJCC and LexCon, and now that they’re together, they spend some time remembering the conventions. Listen to Tom’s story of how he missed purchasing a holy grail for his collection by a matter of minutes! Find out what Steve Cardenas (Rocky, Mighty Morphin Red Power Ranger #2, Zeo Blue Power Ranger) did to troll Jordan at LexCon!
Gears shift as the crew then discusses the recent developments on Kamen Rider Gaim. What was everyone’s most “OMG” moment when watching the show? What are their thoughts on DJ Sagura? The trainbow is tasted once more as Tom and Jordan discuss the Shadow Line extensively with Ressha Sentai ToQGer and Jordan makes a bold prediction for just who ToQ #6 will end up being! Finally, Chris gushes over the episode “Spirit of the Tiger” from Power Rangers Super Megaforce. But, as with anything Power Rangers related, someone ends up hogging the spotlight as the crew discusses, for the last time in a public format, the entire debacle that was Morphin Madness Round 3.
For those who were caught up heavily in Morphin Madness, this is your chance to get the scoop behind the controversial Twitter campaign with the hash tag #NoMoreTommy from the creator of that movement himself – Jordan. What was the real purpose behind it? Was there any spite attached to it, and if so, why? Jordan reveals all this episode. Check out the episode details below and take a listen for yourself!
IMPORTANT NOTE: Unfortunately, we had some technical difficulties with the audio on this podcast. The problem has been identified and will be corrected going forward, but sadly the original source for the audio is lost forever, meaning the only way you can hear this episode is through the current quality. After spending a few days trying to fix the audio from the source material, the decision was made by all three hosts to release the episode because, honestly, we thought it was a pretty damn good episode. We do apologize for the lackluster quality of the audio and hope you will still give the episode a listen. Again, future episodes will not have this problem.

On the heels of this year’s LexCon, arguably the most popular Power Ranger of all time, Jason David Frank who played the Green Ranger and White Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the Red Ranger in both Power Rangers Zeo and Power Rangers Turbo, as well as the Black Ranger in Power Rangers Dino Thunder, has released the second episode of his self-created reality show titled My Morphin Life. The video is below.
This episode features what many of us have come to known as convention burnout and convention hangover, where the crowds and the excitement literally drain every bit of energy from your body. Follow Jason David Frank as he attempts to survive LexCon 2013. This video features interviews with other former Power Rangers about Jason David Frank, including Walter Jones, Blake Foster (who is credited as his character’s name instead of his actual name), Catherine Sutherland, Karan Ashley, and the always lovable Jason Narvy. Click on the discussion link to share your thoughts about the episode!
If you’re a fan of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers then you might be interested to know that Jason David Frank, who played Tommy Oliver the Green Ranger and White Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers has released the first episode of his documentary My Morphin Life through the popular YouTube channel BatInTheSun. The video is shown below. If you’re hoping for some cool behind-the-scenes Power Rangers footage, you’ll be sad to see that there is none. And there looks to be none in the next episode. This series looks to be, for the moment, strictly about the man behind the helmet, Jason David Frank.
NOTE! If you only see a black screen with audio, change the video’s resolution settings, then switch it back to what you want. This will fix the problem immediately.
So what did you think? Are you going to tune in to the next episode of My Morphin Life? What could be added or removed from the show to make it better, or is it pretty awesome as is? Sound off!
In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Power Rangers, we asked the users at TokuNation to rank who they thought the 10 Best Power Rangers were (with #1 being, of course, their top choice). We then took the nominations, what rank they were, and assigned each rank a certain numerical value that would allow them to be added and averaged in a fair way. In overwhelming fashion (literally more than twice the number that the #2 entrant received), the fans at TokuNation.com selected Jason David Frank – who played Tommy Oliver the Green Ranger and White Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the Red Ranger for both Power Rangers Zeo and Power Rangers Turbo, and finally the Black Ranger from Power Rangers Dino Thunder – as the Greatest Power Ranger of All Time.
The character Tommy Oliver first appeared in the episode “Green With Evil Part 1” on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Tommy was the new kid in school and showcased an incredible, aggressive style of martial arts. He befriends Kimberly immediately, but as he’s supposed to meet her, Rita Repulsa appears and sends the Putty Patrol after him. Tommy is victorious, and Rita Repulsa decides that Tommy will be the one to wield the Dragon Coin and become her evil Green Ranger.
Given the Sword of Darkness, Tommy overpowers the other Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. He separates the Red Ranger, Jason, away from the others and systematically picks them apart piece by piece, removing Zordon and Alpha 5 from the equation. Good always triumphs over evil however, and the Power Rangers restore Zordon, who shares Tommy’s secret identity with the team. Together, they destroy the Sword of Darkness, thus freeing Tommy from evil, and he, along with his mighty Dragonzord, join the team. At this point, Tommy is nothing more than reinforcements – while he will fight with the others in civilian form, his only scenes in the Green Ranger costume are to call forth the mighty Dragonzord to aid the others. However, Rita Repulsa uses the Green Candle to absorb Tommy’s powers. The others are unable to destroy the candle, and Tommy has to give his power coin to Jason, thus leaving the team.
But when you’re the Best Power Ranger of All Time, you never get to leave for good. When the other Power Rangers had their parents kidnapped and they were duped in to giving up their Power Coins, as well as losing the Dragon Dagger to Goldar, they brought Tommy back as their only hope for salvation. Zordon infused his own energy with the Green Power Coin, and Tommy’s Green Ranger powers were restored, at least for small bursts of time. As soon as he grabbed the box containing the Power Coins, his body absorbed the energy from the force field and restored his powers. Tommy, and the Green Ranger, were back!
Sadly, the Green Ranger powers were limited and destined to run out, this time for good. When Lord Zedd ousted Rita Repulsa and took over, he made it his primary goal to eliminate the Green Ranger once and for all. He would succeed, draining all of the Green Ranger energies, but not before Tommy saved the day one last time. With Lord Zedd stronger than ever, the Power Rangers knew they needed another 6th Ranger. Unbeknownst to the team, Zordon and Alpha 5 create the White Ranger, and in one of the most watched children’s television shows of all time, White Light Part 2, the White Ranger is revealed to be Tommy, his powers created completely from good powers and bestowed as the new team leader. With Tommy as the White Ranger and leader of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, they would defeat Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa time and time again.
When Goldar and Rito Revolto manage to destroy the Command Center, along with the arrival of the evil Machine Empire, Zordon uses the powerful Zeo Crystal to create the Power Rangers Zeo, with Tommy becoming the Red Ranger. When the evil space pirate Divatox arrives on Earth, Zordon creates the Turbo Powers to combat this new threat, giving creation to the Power Rangers Turbo. Tommy would continue to lead as the Red Ranger until he, and the others, decide that it’s time to pass on the power so they can continue on with the next phase of their lives. Tommy, as a race car driver, would leave the Power Rangers for many years (and miss out on some of the biggest battles!).
When General Venjix, a leftover from the evil Machine Empire, surfaces and attempts to restore Lord Zedd‘s personal zord, Serpentera, Tommy gathers a team of veteran Red Rangers to come together and destroy the Machine Empire once and for all in the episode “Forever Red”, which acted as the franchise’s 10th Anniversary special.
During all this down time, Tommy went to college and become a doctor of paleontology. He discovered the Dino Gems, mysterious jewels taken from the asteroid that crashed on Earth and killed the dinosaurs. When an evil creature known as Mesogag appears, Tommy knows he has to harness the energies of the gems to create a new team of Power Rangers. Three of his high school students stumble in to his secret lab and bond with the gems. With Tommy’s help, they morph in to the Power Rangers Dino Thunder, and Tommy is thrown in to the role of a mentor to his new team. But when he detects the presence of a fourth gem, Tommy goes to inform his students when he is kidnapped by Mesogag, who wants Tommy to show him how to free the Dino Gem from it’s prison. Through a twist of fate, Tommy ends up bonding with the gem and morphing in to the Dino Thunder Black Ranger, stating that he “might be old, but can still pull it off”. In one of the most beloved episodes of the entire franchise, Tommy winds up in a coma, fighting for his life, and ends up fighting his former incarnations – the Mighty Morphin Green & White Rangers, as well as the Zeo Red Ranger. Victory means life, defeat means death. When all is said and done, Tommy implies that he will stay in Reefside and continue teaching.
But you can’t keep the Best Power Ranger of All Time down. When The Armada overpowers the Power Rangers Super Megaforce, Tommy will once again take up the power to help save the world. Tommy will return as the Mighty Morphin Green Ranger in the series finale of Power Rangers Super Megaforce, airing in late 2014.
Jason David Frank is the actor who played Tommy Oliver for more episodes in the franchise than any other actor or character. Jason David Frank is a 7th degree black belt, an inductee in to the World Karate Union Hall of Fame, a Guinness Book of World Records record holder, an undefeated MMA Fighter, owner of the Rising Sun Karatae schools, creator of the clothing brand Jesus Didn’t Tap, an accomplished sky diver, an actor, a husband, a father, a reoccurring guest of the Wizard World convention circuit, and according to our users, The Best Power Ranger of All Time. Congratulations Jason David Frank.
