“Power Rangers Megaforce & Super Megaforce DVD Sets Review”

August 23, 2016



Power Rangers Megaforce and Power Rangers Super Megaforce have been released in 5-DVD Complete sets. Each set contains all the main episodes from the seasons (no holiday episodes included), as well as some bonus features. Let’s take a closer look.


POWER RANGERS MEGAFORCE SET OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION

When the evil Warstar aliens plot a massive invasion of our planet, Earth’s supernatural guardian, Gosei, mobilizes a team of five extraordinary teens with the talent and attitude to oppose them: the Power Rangers Megaforce!





POWER RANGERS SUPER MEGAFORCE SET OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION

In order to stop ruthless Prince Vekar and his massive alien Armada, the Rangers have only one hope: to unlock the special keys -- and harness the amazing powers of Legendary Rangers of the past!





PACKAGING, ARTWORK & DISC

This Megaforce DVD set artwork isn’t too bad. It’s basic with just showing off the core team standing on the front cover. The back is a bit more dynamic with the Rangers & their weapons. I prefer the Super Megaforce set imagry more, since I’ve always been a fan of that group shot. The back of the Super Megaforce set has a nice battle shot of the team. Both backs of the sets list all the episodes, and remind you that you can download the sets digitally. For each set, the five DVDs are the same as were released in their individual volumes. This means that all the menus are the same as when they were released individually. Each set as a advertising slip showing off the Dino Charge DVDs that have been released thus far. On the back of each slip is a code to download the seasons digitally.


One flaw with the packaging is the tape Lionsgate placed on the slip covers. Due to the cases containing five DVDs, the weight is more than a standard release. To keep the main DVD cases from sliding out of the slip covers, two large pieces of tape were placed on the top & bottom of the covers. This tape is NOT easy to remove if you want to maintain the quality of the cover. I think Lionsgate could have gone for a more collector friendly tape.


BONUS FEATURES
The Megaforce set comes with a Zord Gallery, and the Super Megaforce contains the “Power Rangers: A Legacy” feature that was borrowed from the Shout! Factory set Legacy Set. The Super Megaforce set does included the extended version of the Legendary Battle.


FINAL VERDICT
These are good DVDs to get for Power Rangers fans. Speaking strictly on value, you cannot go wrong with getting 40 episodes of a series for only $20 (or just 20 episodes for $10). While these seasons were not the most well received by fans,  each season does still contain enjoyable and fun episodes. Kids who watched these seasons and enjoyed them will likely love having these complete sets, if they did not have the individual volumes before.


The Power Rangers Megaforce & Power Rangers Super Megaforce Complete Season DVD Sets were released on August 16th, 2016, and is are available wherever DVDs are sold. They should cost $10 to $15, depending on the retail store.



Be sure to also pick up the Power Rangers Dino Charge: Rise DVD on September 27, 2016, and then the Power Rangers Dino Charge: Hero DVD on November 1, 2016.


ALLONS-Y!
