Behold, Our New Power Rangers!
The new movie suits of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers hit the Internet today, and they’re pretty much what one would expect. Snazzy, alien-looking, more detailed than the jumpsuits they had on TV. I like them.
These were probably a no-brainer. Take the classic concept, keep enough of it to look familiar, but jazz them up a little bit. They seem fine to me.
Also, I’m kind of digging this popular Internet theory that Rita Repulsa, based on her new green outfit, is a former Green Ranger who went evil. That would be a pretty solid origin behind where she gets the Green Ranger powers from. Maybe we’ll get a sequel and can see the Green Ranger come to life on the big screen. He is the best Ranger after all.

I like the aesthetic of them, for sure, but they feel just a little too busy. There’s a lot of unnecessary line work on the costumes. I’d rather they have focused on making their silhouettes more dynamic than clutter up the costume.
They are definitely way too busy. The original movie costumes were pretty darn good, but I can see why they wouldn’t want to go that route. Hopefully in motion they’ll make more sense.
Someone should call Tony Stark and tell him some of his suits from the house party protocol escaped destruction.
