A car Grand Prix/ duel format/Olympics /competition would be interesting.

Cars are definitely high on the "motifs that sell" list. But to that point, the Patranger stuff didn't sell anywhere near well, so I'm not sure cars would be used again so soon.

Yeah I’m bored of cars but if they can make it interesting more power to them.

I can already picture a car carrier. It wouldn’t be the brick of the season but maybe it can load 3

Cars mixed with animals could sell

A giant snake or rhino car transporter similar to zyuohger

Maybe we'll have a metallic trio, gold silver and bronze? Or maybe the main five will have accents of those in their suits? Or Red will have a Gold power up?
Now that I think about it,a trio of Gold,Silver and Bronze debuting at the same time would actually be pretty cool.

This feels misplaced. The Pataranger aesthetic is distinctly retro. It's retro Sentai, and it's retro police. To contrast, Dekaranger built on SWAT motifs, which is a comparatively new look, and makes for cooler toys.

Pataranger looks like my dad's Sentai.

Good lord, can you imagine if Lupinranger lacked a cool design? Based on insiders, Lupinranger went through a drastic redesign, partly initiated to Bandai America. Just speculation, but I think Lupinranger was also a retro throwback, in the vein of Poitrine.

Definitely valid. I'm just saying, I don't think they would pick cars over animals, as an example. The last time we had legitimate animal mechs was....a long time ago. They could also, and probably will, surprise us entirely.

Such is the rumor cycle.

Zero-One quarter 2 catalog comes out around October. By that point, we'll have a better idea of what direction Sentai is heading in.

This has got to be almost a given, doesn't it? People have been suggesting an Olympics-themed season for years. And 2020 is the most perfect time to do a general sports-themed season.

I'd like to believe so. The general consensus on this is about as strong as last year's discussion of "mystical themed w/swords".

I can't see them not playing into the Olympics, as they've done it before. It's just a matter of how much they lean into it.

Since the 90s! It's one of the oldest rumours, next to bugs.

It's probably just because Olympic colours perfectly match with the Sentai slots, so every Olympic cycle, people think about the idea again.

LupinPat was clearly a we don't give two fucks season. It was an entire season about collection and we got a handful of toys barebones release. They really just took a breath of fresh air and we okay we do barebones then Dinosaurs.

The Olympics theme would make sense seeing as Tokyo has the Olympics next year I believe so it'd make total sense to go with that as a Tie-In.

Honestly the only reason I can see them NOT using the Olympics is because the committee is notorious for enforcing copyright, I've mentioned the time they went after a video game because it was called "the five rings" but if they do it right I doubt it'd be a problem.

Trademark not copyright they are not the same things. Trademark has to be enforced or you lose it. Copyright is anther issue and they wouldn't lose it if they didn't enforce it. What you described is a trademark as it is the name of a thing. The 5 rings clearly infringes on the trademark. You can't copyright a name you trademark them.

Yup. It's definitely doable. I would theorize that they further extrapolate on the mechanism tested out with YokuRyuOh, and have several ball-animal-robot mecha. But that's just me theorizing.

Olympics feels like such a retro theme.
I wouldn't mind if they took some cues from old sentai designs for the mechs.

They could go the Battle Fever J route and have each Ranger be a representative from different countries, though I definitely wouldn't tie them to color.
