Even though the entirety of Power Rangers is available on Net Flix to watch, there could be a chance that the streaming rights might expire one day. Saban comes to the rescue again, as they join up with Shout! Factory to release the whole series on home media (There could be a chance for a Blu-ray release as well.). Now that's a whole lot of Power Rangers that is going to be released, since they are releasing over 700 episodes.
Power Rangers is not the only series that is getting a release, since VR Troopers, Big Bad Beetleborgs, and Ninja Turtles the Next Mutation are also going to be available.
I know a couple of you are wondering why this news is being mentioned here, but lets face it people. To many young people in the 90s, Power Rangers served as a gateway series into the realm of tokusatsu (Including myself.). Even if most of the shows don't give off the same feel as the Super Sentai counterpart, most of them were able to win the hearts of many young fans with the way they were handled as Power Rangers.
I wish Saban the best of luck in making money off of these releases, since the money from sales will help them in the production of future shows. People who experienced these shows could go back and relive them, along with giving their children a taste of what live action superhero shows were like in the 90s.
You can look forward to these releases to start coming out around the Summer of 2012.

Both VR Troopers and Big Bad Beetleborgs obtained most of their action scenes from the Metal Hero series. Beetleborgs and its second season Metallix uses footage from Juukou B-Fighter and B-Fighter Kabuto, which the Metal Hero counterparts have nothing to do with a group of foolish children wishing to be like their favorite comic book superheroes. To me, I think that B-Fighter will be the perfect antidote to undo the memories of Beetleborgs, if you ever get to see the original.
VR Troopers took notes from the first three season of Power Rangers by using three series for theirs show, except that the footage overlapped between episodes instead of being split up by seasons. Choujinki Metalder, Jikuu Senshi Spielban, and Space Sheriff Shaider served as the costumes and various scenes that were done between the series. As an older person, you might notice the different qualities behind each of the Japanese scenes that were used in the series.
The only one out of place is Next Mutation, since it is a live action spin off of the Ninja Turtles series. All I remember about the show was that the weapons for the turtles were off, and that it featured a whole new array of villains. If one good thing came out of this, we were shown that turtles are better than Rangers. All thanks to the crossover in Power Rangers in Space where the Space Rangers were taken down by the Ninja Turtles.
