Offered by Shout! Factory, the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: The Complete Series 25th Anniversary Limited Steelbook is a must-have for any Power Rangers fan who fondly remembers these teenagers with attitude.
Announced earlier in the year, Shout! Factory gathered every single Mighty Morphin Power Rangers episode and a special Blu-Ray copy of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie into a gorgeous collector’s set. The set contains bonus features such as new interviews with director Bryan Spicer, Johnny Young Bosch (Adam Park/Black Ranger) and Paul Freeman (Ivan Ooze) alongside a slew of extra content:
- “Morphin Time!”- A Look Back At Mighty Morphin Power Rangers With Interviews Featuring Members Of The Cast And Creative Team
- “A Morphenomenal Cast”- Casting Director Katy Wallin And The Cast Recall What It Took To Become Power Rangers
- “Lord Zedd’s Monster Heads”
- “Alpha’s Magical Christmas”
- “The Good, The Bad And The Stupid”
- “The Fans Power Up”- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Fans Remember The Series
- “MMPR Karate Club”- The White Ranger Kata
- “Power Rangers Live”- The World Tour
As a long-time fan of the franchise with fond memories of the show, getting to relive the action in this set makes the collection worthwhile. Bringing back flashbacks to a younger version of me idolizing Kimberly and getting to rewatch the action (and sometimes silliness) of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers was a delight.
The real treat of this boxset is the Blu-Ray version of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. I remember being excited about the movie when it first premiered in 1995 and getting to rewatch the movie decades later was a treat. While the movie was corny and full of ’90s stereotypes, it’s as fun as I remembered. Getting to see the movie suits in Blu-Ray was my favorite part as I remembered loving those suits for its armor motif.
Nonetheless, no matter what kind of Power Rangers fan you are, this Steelbook is highly recommended for its value and nostalgia. The gorgeous packaging also makes it a great display piece for collectors.
