Oh dear. The suit designs for the upcoming Power Rangers movie have been revealed and they're... Yeah... The suits mix the scaling and curves of fantasy armor with a few cues from recent superhero armor designs. The suits are very busy and the helmets look more than a bit insect-like. The production designers obviously wouldn't want to just copy previous Power Rangers suits, but these are very out-there. I remember really liking what the original Power Rangers movie did with the suits. They took the original nylon / spandex designs from the Japanese show (all action scenes in Power Rangers used footage from Super Sentai: Zyuranger) and expanded upon them, making the suits look like real armor instead of fabric. I'd love to have seen something more along those lines. Oh well.
