Power Rangers Samurai coming Mcdonalds Happy Meal

In a few weeks in September Power Rangers Samurai is finally coming to McDonalds. I expected this to happen. There is eight toys: Samurai Megazord, Gold Ranger, Red Ranger, Blue Ranger, Spin Disc, Fire Smasher Cannon Blast mode, Hydro Bow and a spinner thing. I have covered what toys there has been before in McDonalds (it sure has been a lot) and what I liked and didn't. The girl toy is iCarly. My niece and nephew (Jaiden) frequent McDonalds a lot. I even had a poll about it. STARTS SEPTEMBER 16, 2011

 UPDATED 9/19/11
  I recently checked it out, and the Happy Meal box only has Red, Gold and Blue and has their names but lacks Mike (:(), who seems to be the fan favorite (with kids too). I got the Red Ranger spinner toy and it is quite detailed even though it lacks paint.

The following is my own creation:
Instead of iCarly, they should had made a girl version for PR. I would had the spinner be Yellow's weapon and have a cheaper version of the toy. And I couldn't think of a replacement for the Megazord. For the turtle on the spin disc sword, I use the turtle they have in the actual background of the picture. I also used the girl weapons from the Bandai America Mega Mode toys. The photoshop is badly done on purpose, for people not to think its real.

Official Press Release:
LOS ANGELES (September 20, 2011) – Saban Brands announced today that the #1 kids action series Power Rangers Samurai is teaming up with McDonald’s to offer Power Rangers toys in Happy Meals at participating McDonald’s restaurants throughout North America. The relationship between these two iconic brands began in 1994 with a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Happy Meal. Over fifteen years later, today’s collaboration focuses on positive lifestyle choices, including fun fitness and balanced eating for America’s youth, and coincides with the roll-out of McDonald’s new Happy Meal, that now includes apple slices in every Happy Meal purchased.

“We are so proud of the long relationship between the Power Rangers and McDonald’s,” said Saban Brands president Elie Dekel. “It is a testament to the legacy of the Power Rangers that McDonald’s and this iconic franchise have sustained their collaboration long enough to introduce a new Power Rangers Happy Meal to a second generation.”

Power Rangers fans visiting participating North American McDonald’s restaurants between Friday, September 16 and Thursday, October 13 will receive one of eight limited edition toys inspired by the hit series Power Rangers Samurai, now airing on Nickelodeon, with the purchase of a Happy Meal or Mighty Kids Meal. This new promotion brings a mix of action figures and role-play items where kids can recreate high-action moves in the palms of their hands and inspire fun, active play.

McDonald’s new Happy Meal, which will begin to roll out in select McDonald’s locations across the U.S. this month, will include a smaller, 1.1-ounce portion of fries along with produce (apple slices, a quarter cup or half serving) with the choice of a hamburger, cheeseburger or Chicken McNuggets, and choice of beverage, including new fat-free chocolate milk and 1% low fat white milk.

In addition, this promotion coincides with the newest cycle of Power Rangers emPOWER, an initiative that inspires kids and families to put the Power Rangers values of teamwork, confidence, health and physical activity into action through programs at schools, online and at events in local communities. Another way is to encourage exercise and active play in and after school by using The Power Rangers emPOWER Activities. The emPOWER Activity Kit Sweepstakes is offering schools and youth organizations the chance to win a $10,000 donation and a visit from the Power Rangers and is available through November 11, 2011 on

1986 LA Times Article Haim Saban was to adapt Bioman first

Many thought Jetman was the first Super Sentai series that Haim Saban wanted to adapt, this 1986 LA Times article confirms that Saban planned to adapt Bioman. There were rumors for the last couple of years that Saban wanted to adapt Bioman. The article says: "Bio-Man and his squad were in danger. This time, however, their fate wasn't resting in the hands of Zadar, the evil half-human, half-robot thug who wants to conquer the world..." Also: "He has lofty ideals, and I wish him luck in reaching them. But there is a substantial difference in being a producer of music and being a producer of entire television programs," said Karyn Ulman, vice president of music for Taft Entertainment." In 1986 I was four, I was eleven when Mighty Morphin Power Rangers first aired, wonder what the world would be like if Power Rangers had already had its 20th anniversary in 2006? And 25th would be 2011 I suppose. I remember them saying for MMPR that Fox Kids wasn't sure about the violence, that is probably what hindered the series in 1986.
