Had to google it up cause I had no idea what it was, my childhood was mainly mickey mouse and I only watched a bit of power rangers on the side.

Super Sentai is just Power Rangers in japan. In fact, Power Rangers actually used some of the footage from the Japanese show. And, it has been airing since 1975.

Yep. I remember watching RPM.

That's as good a reason as any to be a Power Rangers fan. RPM was pretty much the pinnacle of older children's programming as conceived of by American civilization.

And also exorbitantly pricey to make, by the look of it. That was probably a wake-up call for Disney that their "cash cow" was looking to be more trouble for them than it was worth, so they sold it to people who didn't give a hoot about quality work or production value and pinched pennies all the way through every new season from 2011 to the present.

What happened to Power Rangers was a shame. By all indicators even the Hasbro purchase didn't solve anything. It's safe to say that the "glory days" of 2003-2009 are never coming back.

You should check the Japanese version of that show where it was adapted from. (It's called Engine Sentai Go-Onger).

Transformers was good. But perhaps Power Rangers was better as an idea.   But the concept was nothing new.
Just ask the creators of Vol-tron
