You don't know what you are talking about. This came out in 1987..long bfreoe Power Rangers. It wasn't even like Voltron at that time (the only show similar to Power rangers). This show was interactive. You could fire lasers (from Capt. Powers jet) at the tv cover, and it would show battle hurt. You could take hurt as well. It was really the 1st of it's kind!
