Default Regarding the Monster suits

I always wondered this and maybe someone here can answer this for me, were the suits on the show for the main villain cast and monster of the day, were those taken directly from Toei for Saban to use OR were they replicated? I ask because I'm sure most of the suit actors in Japan were a little shorter than the suit actors for MMPR and such, I only assume this because I did research and the actor who played Gasha Skull (Rito Revolto) is only 5'5" and I'm sure that Danny Wayne is taller than that, can anyone help clerify this?

Yeah, typically they are shipped over along with props and other stuff the production crew don't want to make from scratch (motorcycles would be shipped, I'd imagine). Moving to NZ saved on shipping for obvious reasons.

Sometimes (always?) just the additions/modifications are sent.

Ahh so the custom fairings are just bolted onto a bike bought locally? Would be cheaper.

I think Goldar, Elgar and Rygog have different suits in the Japanese version, which is why in some shots, you will see Elgar and Rygog looking more threatening than they normally do as some of it is stock footage then the next scene, you will see them in their American counterparts.

he's right generally the majority of the suits that they get are the same but I do think they generally receive the stunt suits but don't quote me on that stunt part.

that's interesting I never knew that but it would make sense since they would have hero versions of them (to make the Cycles look good) and stunt versions of them and it would be cheaper to just buy a bike locally and bolt the extra stuff to it.

yes you're right but that's not always the case with Goldar in fact during most of the first season we saw him with his original Zyuranger suit including his fight against Jason in the Dark Dimension in Green with Evil problem is those suits weren't made to last long and it was falling apart so they had to re-make a Goldar suit from scratch and we first saw their re-made suit in Crystal of Nightmares but we didn't get to see it again until The Mutiny.

Anyone else notice that Goldar's voice changed too? Which was weird since it was the same VA.

nope I didn't notice that but it happens since actors tend to experiment with their roles since some voices might be harder on their throats.
