Power Rangers will have a big presence at San Diego Comic-Con, including several exclusives you will definitely want to make room for, both in your luggage and your wallet.

Each year San Diego Comic-Con offers up several great exclusives for just about any genre or license, and Power Rangers is no different. Whether you're a collector of Bandai America's Legacy figures or like the more premium-priced S.H. Figuarts line, there's something here for any action figure fan.

Fans of Power Ranger Zords are also in luck, as are fans of role playing items. Fan of the Power Rangers comics? So are we, and it so happens we're all in luck because BOOM! Studios and Hasbro are going to have more than a few items you'll covet.

Fans will also be able to meet several Power Ranger actors and actresses at the show itself, so if you do snag a few of the comics you will have a prime opportunity to get them signed. We're also hoping a Hasbro, BOOM! Studios, and Bandai America have at least one or two tricks and surprises up their sleeves. Will we find out more about Shattered Grid, Beast Morphers, or the 25th Anniversary episode?

Who knows, but we do know there will be plenty of sweet swag to add to your Power Rangers collections at the show, and we've collected them all into one handy list. If new ones are announced we'll update the post accordingly, and any price information or location information will be updated as well.

Without further ado, here are all the Power Ranger exclusives that will be available at Comic-Con.

EVIL IN SILVER

Fans can add In Space villain Psycho Silver to their collection at SDCC, but if there are any leftover you can also pre-order the figure at Entertainment Earth.

The figure was previously a Toys "R" Us exclusive, but due to the retailer going out of business Entertainment Earth has picked up the baton. If you want to complete your set you'll need to make sure to pick one up.

The figure will cost $44.99 and can be picked up at Entertainment Earth's booth #2343. The official description is below.

"We're the Psycho Rangers. We're faster than you. Smarter than you. Stronger than you. But we're evil!" From the Power Rangers in Space TV series, comes this Power Rangers in Space Psycho Silver Ranger Legacy Collection 6-Inch Action Figure - Entertainment Earth Exclusive. The evil counterpart of the Silver Ranger from Power Rangers in Space makes his appearance in the Legacy line of highly detailed and articulated action figures from Bandai as this collectible 6 1/2-inch tall figure. With show-accurate styling and premium decoration, there are 21 points of articulation and a muscular, heroic design that's perfect for play or display! Great for adult collectors and kids alike, the Psycho Silver Ranger comes in premium Legacy Collection packaging. Don't miss out on this opportunity to pick-up this former Toys "R" Us exclusive!"

SOUL OF CHOGOKIN MEGAZORD GETS A NEW PAINT JOB

It won't just be figures that will be up for grabs, as fans can also get ahold of an exclusive Soul of Chogokin Black Megazord from Tamashii Nations.

The impressive Zord will boast a black and teal paint job with gold accents and is pretty dang slick. No price has been announced yet, but we do know it will be available at the Bluefin Brands Booth.

"This special edition Megazord Black Version has been designed exclusively for the 25th Anniversary of the Power Rangers brand. With gleaming, plated die-cast parts, this version of the Megazord is particularly suited to commemorating the brand’s “silver anniversary.” In addition to the black, silver, and gold commonly used in the black versions of Soul of Chogokin series figures, the Megazord Black Version adds the color green, the signature color of the Dragonzord, making the Dragonzord Fighting Mode and Mega Dragonzord combinations all the more spectacular."

Tamashi Nations will have several exclusives at the event, including an S.H. Figuarts Red Ranger figure from Tamashii Nations.

The new Red Ranger figure will be a special 25th-anniversary edition, with the biggest difference being a brand new head sculpt of Jason Scott, played by Austin St. John. The figure will come with a number of accessories, and will also sport a swappable head with the iconic helmet.

No price has been announced, but you can check out the official description below.

"The Red Ranger returns as a special 25th Anniversary commemorative edition featuring a new head sculpt of Jason from the original series. Digital painting is used to replicate Jason’s face in minute detail."

S.H. Figuarts will also have another Ranger on hand, which will be the Green Ranger himself Tommy Oliver.

This limited edition Tamashii Nations S.H. Figuarts figure will boast a new head sculpt like its Red Ranger cousin, with a likeness similar to Tommy Oliver, played by Jason David Frank. It will come with his trademark Dragon Dagger as well as swappable hands, and you can find the official description below. No price has been announced.

MIGHTY MORPHIN STEELBOOK FOR THE WIN

This one is actually not exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con, but fans that are there can pick this up there before it officially releases.

The set will feature the entire series of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, which will be spread out over 20 discs. Fans can pick up the Power Rangers 25th Anniversary Steelbook DVD from Shout Factory's Booth.

"Features 2 DVDs of bonus content including interviews with members of the cast and crew, and original fan club videos, promos and more! Also Includes MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS: THE MOVIE™ making its Blu-ray debut, with bonus features including brand-new interviews with Director Bryan Spicer and Stars Johnny Yong Bosch and Paul Freeman! And more!"

"Power up with six incredible teens who out-maneuver and defeat evil everywhere as the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! But this time, the Power Rangers may have met their match when they face off with the most sinister monster the galaxy has even seen –Ivan Ooze. Unleashed upon the good citizens of Angel Grove after six thousand years of imprisonment, Ivan Ooze strips the Power Rangers and their leader, Zordon, of their powers. Now the Power Rangers must journey to a distant planet to learn the secrets of the ancient Ninjetti. Only then will they become empowered with a force strong enough to restore their Morphin ability and defeat the evil Ivan Ooze. Join the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and their new Ninja Megazord as they fight to save Angel Grove, and the world, from the forces of evil!"

GOTTA GET THOSE PINS!

As has become tradition BOOM! Studios will have several new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Pins on hand at the show, and fans of Shattered Grid are going to love them.

That's because the new pins, which were designed by Phil Murphy, include two Lord Drakkon versions (Evolution I Samurai and Evolution II Zeo), Ranger Slayer, Gravezord, and a Green Ranger to round out the set. They will be limited to 500 units per pin, and can be picked up from BOOM! Studios' booth #2229.

TIME FOR SOME RANGER SLAYING

While Lord Drakkon is getting plenty of love these days, BOOM! Studios hasn't forgotten about its other creation the Ranger Slayer.

Fans will be able to pick up this gorgeous San Diego Comic-Con exclusive cover of Go Go Power Rangers #11, which features the Ranger Slayer front and center. Montes did it in the form of his other popular covers, as the Ranger Slayer holds her helmet with a reflection of the Gravezord in the visor. The cover can be found at the BOOM! Studios booth.

HYPERFORCE!

The crew of Hyper RPG's Power Rangers HyperForce are making an appearance at SDCC in the form of an amazing new cover.

The cover accompanies BOOM! Studios' Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #29, and is drawn by Jordan Gibson. The cover features the whole HyperForce team, including Alpha 55 and the team's Green Ranger, and also features the likenesses of the Rangers from the show. You can grab the cover from BOOM! Studios' booth #2229.

Bandai America will also have the Psycho Green Legacy Figure at the show as well, but he'll be in a different location at the show.

Unlike Psycho Silver, Psycho Green will be available at the BOOM! Studios booth, which makes sense since the character was featured in the popular Rangers of 1969 arc. The resulting battle was deadly, showing just how lethal Psycho Rangers can be. Even better is fans can also pick up a special bundle featuring the Psycho Green figure and a gorgeous Lucas Werneck variant to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #28. You can see both in the image below.



SDCC Exclusive: The Green Psycho Ranger Legacy Action Figure and #MMPR #28 exclusive variant cover by Lucas Werneck will be available as a bundle at the BOOM! booth #2229!

IT'S ZEO TIME!

Bandai America will have one more exclusive for fans at the show, and if you're a fan of the Zeo Gold Ranger you're in luck.

At SDCC will be a Zeo Gold Ranger Edition Legacy Zeonizer, which will feature brand new sounds from Jason Lee Scott (as seen in Power Rangers Zeo). It will also feature several other sounds and light effects and will retail for $120 dollars. This will be exclusively available at Banda America's booth.

"Created by Zordon of Eltar, the Zeonizers utilized the power of the legendary Zeo Crystals to connect to the Morphin Grid and morph five heroes into the Power Rangers Zeo. These wrist-mounted devices use an interlocking feature that also helped to pilot the Zeo Zords. The Limited Edition Power Rangers Zeo Zeonizer Legacy Zeonizer, Zeo Gold Ranger Edition is a toy original Zeonizer. Featuring quotes straight from Jason Lee Scott, premium die-cast parts, motion activated sound effects and show accurate lights & sounds for all six Zeo Rangers – the Legacy Zeonizer, Zeo Gold Ranger Edition is perfect for display or cosplay. Go Go Power Rangers!"

I discovered I, Prevail this May and they have very quickly become one of my favorite bands. The group randomly popped up as a suggested artist on YouTube and I decided to give it a go. I am not typically a fan of screamo bands, but I, Prevail seems to do it just right. If you watch their videos, you will very quickly learn one of the band members has a pretty funny crush on Taylor Swift. They are a very likable group and I will now post my two favorites songs by them.


Stuck In Your Head is a very catchy song. Don't blame me if it does get stuck in your head.


Blank Space is the I, Prevail cover of the Taylor Swift song. I think it is better than the original. As I mentioned, one of the band members has a funny crush on Taylor Swift and that is why I believe they covered this song.

Are there any other fans of I, Prevail here?

That's right, after nearly a year of disappearing I am back. I have been around the past week or so updating some things and posting around, but thought I would make a post to announce I am officially back.

I definitely did not plan to be gone for so long, but real life had to take the forefront for a bit. I completed my graduate assistantship with an NAIA school here this past May and graduated with my Master's Degree. I worked for the athletic department on campus and constantly put in 50+ hour work weeks. I am not complaining, as it bolstered my resume even more and gave me more experience in my field. I was even the official statistician for four complete National Championship tournaments over the past two years. Life was complicated some when our Sports Information Director had twins this March and I inherited the office when we had seven home events in eight games, but I survived and each event ran smoothly.

The left side of my left arm (elbow down to pinky/ring finger) kept going numb randomly back in November, but I ignored it. Sometime around February, it went numb completely and I kind of kept it a secret. When our Sports Information Director had twins, I definitely kept it a secret because without me there wouldn't be anyone to cover the athletic department at our college. Once he returned in April, I finally shared the news as I was having trouble feeling anything in my pinky and ring finger. I finally scheduled a doctor's appointment and learned I had ulnar nerve entrapment on my left arm. This is the exact same thing I had on my right arm in 2016 and is the same nerve WWE superstar Daniel Bryan has trouble with. Bryan's problem is in his neck, thankfully mine was in my arms. Anyway, the doctor's appointment confirmed I had ulnar nerve entrapment in my elbow, I had lost most strength in my hand (which I didn't realize beforehand) and I needed immediate surgery. Surgery went well and the doctor said I have a muscle in my left elbow that less than 10% of the population has. What happened was my nerve got trapped in my elbow, the extra muscle shifted and pretty much made the nerve entrapment impossible to correct without immediate surgery. My ulnar nerve and extra muscle are now living on the inside of my elbow, as that is where they were moved to. I am essentially funnybone-less on both arms because the ulnar nerve is the one responsible for the funnybone feeling when you hit your elbow, but both of mine are now on the inside of my elbows. The good news is I now have full strength in that arm/hand again, but unfortunately the numbness remains. The doctor said it could take nine months to a year before I gain any feeling or the numbness may be permanent.

As I mentioned, I graduated in May and began the job hunt. I am still not sure how I managed to get every research paper complete and worked the office without feeling the left side of my hand, but somehow I got the job done.

My dad passed away towards the end of May, so that obviously complicated life even further. I always had a rocky relationship with him and he hasn't been in my life much the past several years and hasn't been a father figure to me since around the age of nine. Even with all of this, it was nice to be there with him in his final moments. We told each other we loved each other and it was nice to hear this before he passed.

Currently, I am living the struggle. I have a Master's Degree, but with collegiate athletics being such a hard field to get into, I am pretty much stuck. I have 30+ athletic applications out and had interviews with Duke, Jackson State and Cal State San Marcos, but nothing has stuck. At the same time, I am applying almost everywhere in town just to have something right now. Most jobs seem to be afraid to hire because they see the Master's Degree and assume I am overqualified or will only be using the job until something opens up in my field. I was told the overqualified and afraid to hire thing through the grapevine and so far it seems to be true.

At the same time, the struggle has helped me have enough free time to return to Generation Z. It seems like growing up in general and the PhotoBucket and ImageShack fiasco's have done a number to this place. Looking at the calendar, I realize today marks the eight year anniversary of moving Generation Z to JCInk from ReGeneration Z (our temporary one-day outpost after iPBFree went offline without notice). It's still hard to believe we managed to rebuild GZ in a day.

Anyway, I am glad to be back and look forward to improving the forums even more!

As you may recall, PhotoBucket did a number to Generation Z and several other forums that used them as an image hosting site over the years. Last year, PhotoBucket decided to put the axe on image hosting. Without notice, they pulled all of our images and wanted $400 in order to share images online.

It took them a year to realize the error of their ways, but PhotoBucket is attempting to fix some of their mistakes. The company stated they rejiggered management and want to do the right thing for customers.

The photo hosting site has fired most members of their staff and is now led by Ted Leonard, who is their new CEO. "Our focus since I took over has been customers first," said Leonard. "We've turned back on the images. It's an important day. Millions of images were restored that were lost forever. Our mission is to bring back customers and regain their trust."

After the stunt last year, PhotoBucket has a long way to go to regain my trust. Many of our images are still corrupt/gone for ever thanks to that site, but there is some good news with some of the images returning. I will be looking into our skins once again in the coming days and see if I can fix any of them.

Believe it or not, today is Generation Z's 12th birthday. I started creating the forums on July 6, 2006 and the boards went online for the first time on July 8, 2006. Generation Z began as an anime/manga forum on InvisionFree and racked up a total of 22 members, which I thought was a huge amount at the time.

On December 27, 2006, I started creating Generation Z on iPBFree because it seemed more advanced than InvisionFree and it looked to be an upgrade. I let the members know of the decision on January 1, 2007 and we moved as a whole to iPBFree and remained an anime/manga forum. Ryu Hardt was the admin of the popular anime forum, MyFavoriteGames, at this time, but decided to come over to Generation Z because he saw the change as a move in the right direction.

Midway through July of 2007, we officially decided to become a Power Rangers message board. At that time, we had 21 members as we lost a few in the relocation and some had left. Fast forward a few more months and we started advertising ourselves as a Power Rangers forum. By the end of 2007, we had 300+ members and by the beginning of 2008 we started averaging roughly 100 new members each month and continued growing. We continued our rapid growth until July 13, 2010 when iPBFree went offline completely without any warning. We still do not have any concrete answers as to why iPBFree went down. We had almost 6,000 members around the time iPBFree went under.

On July 14, 2010 I began piecing together the puzzle of iPBFree and attempted to find any remains of our previous host. I started a temporary board, ReGeneration Z on InvisionFree to try and spread the news. Generation Z officially moved to JCInk on July 15, 2010 and we had to start over from scratch. We continued rebuilding with the Power Ranger theme until April 23, 2011 when we decided to change our theme to a nostalgia/nerd culture board. At this time we had 307 members.

On our 10th anniversary, we rebranded ourselves once again and went back to our roots as a Power Ranger forum. We have continued this theme ever since. It is sad to realize that modern technology has swallowed up most forums, but I am happy to still have Generation Z. Most of our members have grown up and moved on, so I do not believe we will ever be as active as we once were. I am guilty of suffering the responsibility/growing up bug as well, but it is nice to still have this slice of the internet.

Thank you to everyone who has made Generation Z what it is today. Whether you are someone from way back on our InvisionFree days, an old member who occasionally lurks as a guest, or someone who just joined yesterday, I want to extend my gratitude for the time you have spent helping us throughout the years. We have had some tough times, interesting times and theme changes, but we are glad you chose to stick with us through it all. Here's to celebrating 12 years as a community!
