Saban’s Power Rangers and thousands of fans will join forces to celebrate the fourth bi-annual Power Rangers official fan-run convention, Power Morphicon, at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, CA August 22-24. Fans can expect an action-packed experience from Saban Brands with the cast of Power Rangers Super Megaforce and a super-charged panel that will reveal an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming season, Power Rangers Dino Charge.

“Saban Brands is excited to participate once again in this year’s Power Morphicon,” said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands. “It is always a thrill to see Ranger Nation come together in full force and we can’t wait to celebrate the Power Rangers franchise with thousands of our passionate and loyal fans.”

To kick off the opening of Power Morphicon, fans can gather for an exciting event on Saturday, August 23, at 8:45 a.m. outside the Pasadena Convention Center. Saban’s Power Rangers and special “Junior Ranger” guests from Make-A-Wish will take part in an epic stunt to POWER UP Power Morphicon, which originally started in 2006 to grant the wish of a child in the Make-A-Wish program. The Power Rangers are partnering with Make-A-Wish, the official 2014 Power Morphicon Charity Auction beneficiary, and special guests to transform the lives of five kids from around the country with life-threatening medical conditions by granting their wishes to meet the Power Rangers.

At 1 p.m., fans can attend the Power Rangers Super Megaforce Panel in Ballroom D&E, moderated by Judd “Chip” Lynn, Executive Producer of the upcoming Power Rangers Dino Charge season. Fans can expect a lively Q&A session with the Super Megaforce cast, followed by a never-before-seen look at the highly anticipated upcoming 2015 season. Following the panel, attendees can meet the cast of Power Rangers Super Megaforce at the official cast signing from 2-4 p.m. in the Main Hallway. In addition, fans can expect to meet and pose for photos with various legendary Rangers on the show floor throughout the full run of the convention.

Join us and special guest co-host @rankal/Kickback for a “Ranger Nation Interview: Cisco Davis Jr. Fan Films and Post #SDCC Talk”

We interview Cisco Davis Jr. (@ciscodavisjr),  creator, director, writer, producer and visual effects of the Power Ranger fan film projects Zordon of Eltar and Teenagers with Attitude.

“Zordon of Eltar” and “Teenagers With Attitude” are unofficial, non-profit fan films that re-imagine the saga of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

“Zordon of Eltar” is a “reboot” prequel that centers around the two quintessential characters that make up the backbone of the Power Rangers lore: Rita Repulsa and Zordon.

“Teenagers With Attitude” is the second fan film in the series. It will be a short fan film that features a re-imagined cast of the original five teens (Jason, Zack, Trini, Billy and Kimberly) before they meet Zordon and become the Power Rangers.

Cisco is planning to have the fan film screened at Power Morphicon this month.

We also discuss Kickback’s experience at San Diego Comic Con and all of the Power Rangers related news that happened there.

The time is here. Two podcasts, one destiny. THE TALKIN’ RANGER TOKU COMMAND AT THE NATION SUMMER CROSSOVER SPECIAL PART 1!

We are joined by our brothers in Podcast Arms – Talkin’ Toku At The Nation – Chris @rankal, Jordan @DenO_Tokunation and Tom @SoulinkChu!

In part one of the crossover, we discuss the latest news of Power Rangers Dino Charge casting, a new installment of #JDFWatch2014, then we discuss the pros and cons of all aspects of Power Rangers. Drama strikes as things are “taken care of”, the curse of “he who shall not be named”, and the egos of the hosts turn ugly. Literally. The dramatic conclusion occurs in Episode 11 of Talkin’ Toku At The Nation.

Will things ever be the same again?
