That's just semantics. However you want to categorize him, it's another Alpha. I've had enough of stories with "another" versions of pre-existing characters. "Another" Tommy, "another" Kimberly, "another" Matt, "another" Alpha... Just stop.

Bring Lord Zedd in already. It's been three years now.
I too want Zedd to appear but like I said, Alpha 1 is not like those you mentioned because he's not an alternate universe version of a pre-existing character. It's not semantics at all when he's the original Alpha, not "another" version of him. People really need to stop implying that Alpha 1 is an alternate version of a pre-existing character, when he's actually the predecessor of a pre-existing character. Predecessor of a pre-existing character =/= alternate version of a pre-existing character.

My point was more that I was happy to see the Power Blaster get some love rather than anything to do with Adriyel, but whatever. Cool, I guess? I mean I don't dislike Adriyel but I was hardly clamoring to see more of her.

Zedd's currently busy with the Council of Alphas who are making sure he won't get nerfed like did in the show by parents.

It's not the same Alpha, therefore it's another Alpha.

Alpha 1 is a different version of Alpha than Alpha 5. Just like Alpha 5 is a different version of Alpha than Alpha 6. So saying it's an alternate version isn't entirely wrong. This just feels like nitpicking.

As Much As I prefer Tommy as Green to white, Im ready for them to move on from season 1 and dive into stories with him leading the team with the stone canyon trio. (Or hell, the stone canyon team without Tommy is fine as well)

The whole color swapping thing just seems like a desperate attempt of milking the mmpr1 team as long as they can.

I'm debating on whether or not I should buy the GGPR trades or wait a bit longer and see if they do a deluxe edition like they did for MMPR.

I'm actually hoping they play with the Green and White ranger change a little. Maybe let another character take the green powers while Tommy becomes the white ranger or vice versa.

Maybe they'll stretch out the stone canyon team and their relation with the Rangers.

Or maybe (extremly unlikely) they'll hold off on changing the zords onto the Stone Canyon teens join and use it to change all the suits to dairanger (I CAN DREAM DANGIT)

Do... Do you really not understand what I'm saying? I don't care if he's an alternate realty Alpha, or a predecessor, or an ancestor, or another robot that dresses up like Alpha because he's Alpha's biggest fan. IT IS A SECOND, ADDITIONAL ALPHA BECAUSE IT IS NOT ALPHA 5. Stop getting hung up on the word "alternate." I mean, hell, I CALL him a predecessor the first time I mention him:

What the hell is that? An old, pre-5 Alpha?

I'd be happy with simply giving Jason the Dragonshield permanently like they did in Shattered Grid.

It's just that the word "alternate" can mean a lot of things but not meaning predecessor or successor.

Finally read Soul of the Dragon with it finally being out in the UK (or Amazon were just late).

Loved it! Honestly, the use of Lokar, Scorpina and Finster was really well done. The use of Finster being purified was really nice. They made sense for this story and I kind of like how Lokar can be used in future if required.

If it was a bit longer I'd have liked to see more of modern SPD and maybe a Zord fight against Scorpina's monster form until Lokar destroys her.

All the nods to general lore/continuity, the Z wave, Blue Centurion, Triforia name drop and SPD in general was great.

It is the kind of thing I'd love for PR to do more often. The odd Forever Red like special that brings up plot devices from the past to tell a fun story.

Or in general, Boom should do more of these stories and focus on different Rangers/Time periods.

Any chance to get a Reprint of "MMPR Year One Deluxe HC" ? Did BOOM say something about that?

I'd rather Kim get the Dragon Shield permanently. I feel like she did more with it in two issues than Jason did in four, hehe.

They don't intend to reprint it any time soon.

One print run and done. Year 2 book is nice at least but I kinda want the Year 1 book now too.

Will most likely stop buying trades and just get the yearly collections.

That was it, huh?

The Cosmic Cannon reference was cool and unexpected.

So that was confirmed to be Alpha-1 at the end? He looks a bit odd. I'll have to wait to see a better picture of him. He doesn't even look like he has legs.

I sent an email to them a few months ago with Year one having completely disappeared from retail. They said it was limited and they had no plans to re-release it.

There maybe a small chance they will bow to fan demand in a few years but I imagine IF they did, they would change it up slightly like make it paperback or remove the cover pictures in the back or something.

Year one seems to be increasing in price all the time so best bet is to bite the bullet and just grab it as soon as you can.

They're not going to reprint Year One, but they'll eventually do more hardcovers of the same material just in different configurations. Like probably a deluxe hardcover that collects everything written by Kyle Higgins. Or once Go Go wraps, hardcovers that collect issues in-universe chronologically.

i love the fact that Alpha 1 has a design similar to jonny five and the robot from lost in space, im thinking of doing a cosplay of Sky in his uniform from Soul of the dragon does any one have any full look pictures of him?

im loving the fact that we are getting a look into rita and and the sixth power coin origins and a reason why he the powers have a dragon shield

While I'm not 100% sold on the head, THIS is a far better "more robot-y" redesign of Alpha than the 2017 movie gave us.
