You know you’re a 90’s kid when you come home from school and you turn your tv to watch the latest episode of “The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers” – I certainly did, and would often time extend my arms out forward with my imaginary power morpher and yell “Saber Tooth Tiger.” Yup I was that kid, but could you blame me? I do sorta look like Trini 🙂
Recently Nucleus, an intimate art gallery and geek shop in Alhambra, hosted a Power Rangers Tribute Exhibition and Comic Launch to showcase the artists work. Patrons who purchased the set of comics at this event had the opportunity to get them signed by the artists. Naturally, I attended and boy did it bring back memories.
Now I knew based on the invitation that we should get there early, but boy the line was out the door and wrapped around the building!
After waiting about an hour or so outside my party of Power Ranger enthusiast gazed upon the various memorabilia and artwork. I snapped a bunch of photos and was really impressed by the authenticity of the guest cosplayers outfits. The helmets alone looked like they could have been used in the actual tv and movies.
The exhibit was pretty small, but with free admission and memories that brought me back to my childhood was certainly well worth it. Can you believe it’s been over 20 years since the original “Mighty Morphin’ Power debuted? Crazy how time flies.
Who’s your favorite Power Rangers character?
