Now that we've met the cast of POWER RANGERS and had our first look at Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, it's time to finally check out the new and improved costumes that these tenacious teens will be donning. Straight from Entertainment Weekly is our first look at the Rangers' new suits, complete with barely-painted wooden crates for them to stand on!

Power Rangers new costumes suits armor

Production designer Andrew Menzies on the new suits:

It’s tricky finding a new language for a superhero costume. Ours is an alien costume that grows on them, that’s not man-made. You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans.

I see Lionsgate has decided to go with boob armor. That sure is...considerate? Comparisons from Iron Man to Halo are already being made, but really, how many directions can you really go with the classic Power Rangers suit design? In case you need a refresher course on the who's who of it, that's Becky G as the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin as the Black Ranger, Dacre Montgomery as the Red Ranger, Naomi Scott as the Pink Ranger, and RJ Cyler (woot!) as the Blue Ranger. It's morphin' time...or something!

POWER RANGERS opens in theaters on March 24, 2017.

Can't say I'm surprised by the design direction, but with all the Crysis nanosuits and Black Panthers and Max Steels and all the other power suit designs already out there, these doesn't look all that unique.

for those complaining about the breast plates on the women. Listen, in the policing world, womens body armor has to be tailor fit to each individual woman because of their breasts, compared to men who get their vests right away. Is it slightly over sexualized. ya sure, but it isn't out of the ordinary. BTW the armor looks great

Nice try dude! First of all, the breasts on the suits are much larger than the breasts on the women wearing them. second, Yeah sure female body armor has to take in to account that women have breasts, but they don't build to accentuate them. I've never seen tactical body armor that lifts and separates. Finally, the material around the breast matches the material of the suit itself, the suit that goes under the breast plates on the male rangers, which means that because they have boobies, the

And finally, there is the issue of those boots...because every soldier worries about look short with chunky calves when the go into a fight.

Oh I see what they did there.

See, the characters are wearing the same colors in their street clothes as their costumes. Man,never seen that done before.

The more I'm seeing, the more I'm intrigued. I don't understand why everyone is getting all worked up over the costumes? I'm sure the actors can move perfectly fine when fighting and running in the suits. Is it over sexualized? Yeah so what? The men's outfit are too. Power Rangers has always been a guilty pleasure show. This isn't Oscar material.

People debating the merits of a new Power Rangers uniform like it actually means anything important haha. The show was schlock then and it will be now. If they want to add tits to the girl uniforms, I say good for them. To people complaining about how woman look like woman, give your head a shake

It's too Iron Man/ Robocop Reboot

I wish they kept it a bit more realistic instead of turning this into a Guyver clone. They already fucked up Rita, now we have alien suits that grow on them. What's next? All CGI shitty looking monsters?? You betcha.

Interesting. I get more of an Alien/Predator vibe. And Batman Begins a little. And sure, a little bit of Iron Man.

The Guyver!

These suits look straight up Guyver. I'm okay with that.

Just above this I gave my two cents in a reply. But you nailed it! I haven't seen The Guyver, but that, and a handful of other characters and properties from the '80s and '90s that don't look like people in spandex is what I'm getting here.

The guy that was in charge of boxes on the Guyver set needed an award.

It looks pretty good to me. Considering this is supposed to be a summer blockbuster tentpole, I'd expect them to improve on the nylon unitard from the series. This is a vast improvement over that and looks really good if they're going after a more mature audience.

Sexualized much?

The Yellow and Pink Rangers have high heels and boob cutouts? Wth. I'm going to go into this film completely expecting it to be utter garbage--purely for nostalgic reasons.

What about the martial arts?

It's hard to do it when wearing a metallic armor. Some characters on the show have done it, but the suits looked very fake. If the makers of this movie are going for a realistic metallic look, they'll have to sacrifice the martial arts.

At 1st, the design itself caused a weird impact on me, but it's because I'm used to the old design. Now I can see that it's not bad at all. It's certainly better than the design from the 1995 movie, but that's not saying much.

They are better than I expected. Hope the Power Rangers still get to pose a Ridiculous Super Power Transformation Pose every time each of them transform, hehe.

I never got into this as a kid, maybe the fans of the shows will really like it. It doesn't really stand out much to me yet.

boobs and high heels

looks rather silly. But, maybe that's the tone of the film I guess.

Cool

I am very curious to see how this turns out. I kind of like the dark vibe they are giving everything. I love Banks, who I think is actually a really talented actress, and everything I have seen so far hasn't been terrible.
