I Find Your Lack Of Faith... Refreshing

Last month I reviewed the dreadful new Power Rangers movie, saying that Lionsgate Studios took a fast-paced, colorful and exciting kids' show from the 1990s and turned it into a dull, dour, desaturated and overlong teen angst-fest that's completely devoid of any sense of fun.

Looks like I'm not the only one who was less than happy with the new movie. Apparently Fisher-Price agreed with me and thought it sucked as well. I was in Target last night and saw this action figure playset, based on the characters from the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers show. 

Note that I looked all around on the shelf, and didn't see a single toy (from Fisher-Price at least) based on the movie. Ouch!

It's definitely a bad sign when a toy company would rather make figures from a twenty four year old TV show instead of ones from your brand new big budget Hollywood movie.

By the way, get a load of the massive meat hooks on that Rita Repulsa figure! She definitely ain't related to Emperor Trumpy!
