Maybe it was for the stunt teams' benefit. Those suits looked a lot more mobile than the standard costumes...

I don't mean to sound facetious, but what's "half-right" about point 3? I literally covered the same topics you did: it saved money on not having to pay the cast to be there, and it was cheaper with stunt guys. So why am I only half right?

Granted, they could just morph, but why not play with your cool toys if you can? It was no different than the civilian powers of the Disney years which also would have been useless if the Rangers had just morphed first.
The Disney civilian powers were definitely a move away from violence and martial arts. Sometimes the in-universe explanations for their powers was better than others, but it's no coincidence nearly every Disney season had them.

I go with the 'Made to Sell Toys' theory. Hell, Saban has been known to skip seasons of Super Sentai just because the toys didn't sell overseas (Go-Busters & To-Qger, anyone)?

They didn't have the same powers, unless you were meaning having the power the morph and become power rangers. But they were different rangers with different powers.

you mean aside from the battleborgs looking like pretty much the exact same thing as the shogun zords but thinner? Also, didn't they control shogun and Ninja zord at some point?

The Alien Rangers weren't seen controlling the Ninja Zords at all. Falconzord doesn't count here since it was already shown to be compatible with the Shogun Megazord which the Aquitians did control. Yeah, the Battle Borgs were thinner Shogunzords that couldn't combine.

Regardless of the Battleborgs looking similar to the ninjazords due to footage, in the show their powers were different. And the only reason they used the shogunzords was because Billy & Alpha rigged things so they could if needed, since they were there to fill in. Doesn't mean they had the same powers, cause they didn't.

Yeah, the Falconzord was operated by remote control, not by the Aquitians. The remote was destroyed with the Command Center.

Yes, I forgot to mention the remote. Thanks, Digifiend!! (you got it emoticon) The point is, if the Falconzord hadn't been compatible, they would've been screwed.
