Power Rangers Returns to Dinosaur Theme

It's arguable that the height of Power Rangers' popularity in North America reached its peak during Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, so it's no wonder that Bandai is looking to revisit its Dinosaur theme for the 37th entry in their long-running Super Sentai series, Juuden Sentai Kyoryuger.

Bandai's president is actually blaming the dark tone of the last series, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters for its sub par market performance, so Juuden Sentai Kyoryuger aims to take the series back to a more upbeat, lighthearted format with lots of music and "ridiculously" powerful heroes.

The Kyoryugers are composed of Red, Blue, Green, Black and Pink with Pink being the only female hero and no Yellow included for the first time since 1986's Dengeki Sentai Changeman. This team will pilot five mecha, which form a three-piece main robot with one main body piece and two arms.
