Every fandom has them, that one piece of merchandise or memorabilia that directly connects the fan to the series, or the series characters, or perhaps to their childhood, or more simple time in their life. Star Wars collectors have the original Kenner figures, and realistic light sabers, Star Trek collectors buy pieces of the set, and Ghostbusters fans have their proton packs. My fandom is what many may consider a little lower on the geek totem pole. What am I talking about? Power Rangers, and what is the center piece for my fandom? The Original Mighty Morphin Power Ranger power morpher.
Anyway, that concludes my first and probably last Power Rangers Morpher review. Stay tuned as I promise that my next video really will be of the Gripphone.
If you know the Power Ranger’s television show, you know that the Power Rangers morph and change when going into battle with evil. The Gosei Morpher is part of the gear needed for a Power Ranger to go into battle.
Most of the Power Rangers morphers are adapted directly from the designs seen in . The first morpher not to have a Super Sentai counterpart was the White Ranger morpher used by Tommy from the second season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. As the Green Ranger, he had used a gold Power Morpher with the Dragon Coin, but since the Power Morphers and Coins were lifted from , the White Ranger (being a character from ) used a different henshin device and so the gold morpher was reused with a specially created Tiger Coin. The seldom seen Ninja Coins given to the Rangers in the third season were an entirely American addition.
