The annual Power Rangers Morphicon took place this past weekend in Pasadena, California, and out of the fan event came quite a bit of news straight from the creative forces responsible for Saban's Power Rangers franchise.

Ranger Nation: Saban Brands is partnering with Toys "R" Us to create the "ultimate fan destination giving visitors access to a completely immersive Power Rangers experience including exclusive content, first looks at Power Rangers products and announcements, plus aggregated fan content across social media channels and more." RangerNation.com will be launching in the very near future.

Saban's Power Rangers Super Dino Charge: The current series returns with new episodes starting this Saturday, August 20, only on Nickelodeon. There's new allies, new Zords, and of course, many new adventures on-deck. 

Fans at Morphicon also got a look at Blooper Reel that the Power Rangers crew has now posted for all to see...

Finally, Power Rangers Ninja Steel (first covered here back in January) will be coming to Nick in January of 2017, and for the 24th season, the villain will be Galvanax. The first-look at the new baddie can be seen below, while the Rangers themselves appeared in-costume with Will Shewfelt as Brody, the Red Ranger, Chrysti Ane Lopes as Sarah, the Pink Ranger, Chantz Simpson as Calvin the Yellow Ranger, Zoe Robins as Hayley, the White Ranger, and Peter Sudarso as Preston, The Blue Ranger.
