On June 3, 2014 join the Power Rangers as they battle the dreaded villain Divatox at rapid speed when Shout! Factory releases Power Rangers Turbo, Volume 2, a 3-DVD box set that contains the final 22 episodes of the series.
Continuing from the exciting events of Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, the five Turbo Rangers use their new powers, weapons and high-tech supercharged vehicles to battle evil at faster speeds than ever before! The beautiful yet vicious space pirate Divatox follows the Power Rangers to Angel Grove to get revenge for ruining her planned wedding to the volcanic island deity Maligore. From her mobile Subcraft armed to the gills with torpedoes and explosives and crewed by a motley bunch of monsters, she relentlessly pursues our heroes. But the Rangers are not alone in their fight, as they are aided by Dimitria, a wise sage and friend of Zordon; Alpha 6, an advanced robotic sidekick with a streetwise demeanor, the Blue Senturion, a robotic intergalactic traffic cop from the future; and the elusive Phantom Rangers, a one-man army whose very identity is a mystery. An all-new team of Rangers is armed and ready to carry on the Power Rangers legacy!
Following its debut in 1993, Saban’s iconic live-action pop culture series, Power Rangers quickly became the most watched children’s television program in North America. Emphasizing the importance of teamwork, responsibility and helping others by following the adventures of a group of ordinary young people who “morphed” into superheroes, this long-running series has been seen in more than 60 countries, translated into numerous languages, and remains a mainstay in children’s programming blocks. For 20 years, the highly entertaining saga and fan favorite characters from Power Rangers have captivated children and adults alike and are beloved by legions of fans worldwide.
I am so amazed that Power Rangers are still so huge for kids. When they first came out my oldest two children were small – they are now 25 and 27. I remember the first Christmas they were out. It was a madhouse at the store. Everyone was waiting for the day the figurines were to arrive. Then it was one of those thunderous herds of people fighting to get to the toys. I simply had my 5 year old squeeze through everyone and grab two. That was the very original Power Rangers. Now 20 or so years later my 9 and 13 year old still love Power Rangers. Their videos and characters have come a long way but still the general theme is the same. This is another exciting Power Rangers DVD with so much action – so many chances to see the new Rangers fighting for good versus evil. Watch for the DVD and your children will be thrilled.
