That's crazy.

I keep hearing people think they're going with Hasbro as a replacement.

I thought that was Kenner? They may have been bought by Hasbro since then.

But in any case this is shocking news. Bandai is a huge deal and so is the Power Rangers Toy Brand. We know Bandai has had a lot of influence on the brand as well. There could be a potential wierd dynamic down the line since Bandai and Super Sentai will still be working together.

Hasbro's possible involvement has me thinking they may have outbid Bandai. Hasbro is a powerful company itself. This os a major shift in power.

I can't believe Saban Brands is ditching Bandai. They have had such a big part in Power Rangsrs and continue to have a big part in Super Sentai. I can't imagine Bandai is very happy about this.

This can't be a move Saban Brands made lightly. Since Bandai has been their partner with them for both their runs in charge of the franchise. And was partnered with Power Rangers for what will end up being 25 years.

I took a look at Kenner's Wikipedia page and VR Troopers was indeed something in a previous license but as part of a merger with Hasbro the Kenner company closed.

yea that'll be weird since Toei and Bandai of Japan will still have their partnership.

yea I would have to agree that this isn't a move that Saban Brands made lightly in fact I would have to agree with PRangerX that someone had just outbid them for the license.

I really wish Disney would have partnered with Saban Brands.
