Issue

Mini Review Date
30

This is the first Super Megaforce issue and it features a new layout.

New Sections: How to make a ranger belt and find a green XBorg hiding somewhere in the magazine. The new Mr Burley Science section (2 pages) and the Levira cooking page don't feel like power rangers at all and should be in a different magazine all together.

Make Mini Rangers: Last issue they showed 5 mini Megaforce rangers that we were to make in this issue, we only get to make the 3 male rangers not the girls. In their photo they just made three red rangers and changed the colours to get a pink and yellow ranger. You also have to photocopy the one body in the magazine then colour in all three of them whereas they show three fully printed rangers on the cover.

Is There a Comic?: No and there's no mention of it for next issue either.

Posters: Yes, we still get the centre page poster and 2 one page posters, they also no longer have a border around them any more which is good.

Favourites: How to draw the red ranger's helmet, The new poster backgrounds and the small Mighty Morphin group photo on page 32.

What's The Price?: It's back to it's normal 2.99 on the cover but when they scan it, it says 3.99. If this happens just show the store person the price on the cover and you should only be charged the 2.99.

Is the Price Up?: Yes, it's up by 1 to 3.99. There was no mention that this would be a special issue but you get 2 gifts instead of 1. The second one is a mystery gift from one of the seven older issues: 20-23, 26, 29, 32.

It comes in a Bag?: Yes, a sealed clear bag, that means no sticky tape ruining the cover or back page and you can see which mystery gift you get. I wish every issue was like this.

Are The Non-PR Science and Cooking sections Still Here?: No, only a 2 page 'Make' section featuring the Silver Ranger's Super Spear.

Is There a Comic?: No.

Wordsearch Trouble: You can find all of the words except "Levira", there is "Levir" but no 'a' to complete it. It looks like it was meant to join to the first 'a' in "Damarus" but its one box out.

Favourites: The clear bag instead of sticky tape. The double page poster of the six rangers holding their helmets, the 1 page poster of the silver ranger holding his helmet next to gosei and the back page poster of the green, red & Blue rangers. Also the Random Red Rangers page as it features at least five previous red rangers, plus the Spot The Difference as the rangers are wearing the Wild Force suits and the Odd One Out as it features clipart of previous ranger's helmets including the Mighty Morphin green ranger.
