Toy Fair 2018 – Hasbro picks up license for Power Ranger’s toys

Today, Hasbro, Inc., a global play and entertainment company, and Saban Brands announced that Hasbro has been named the global master toy licensee for Saban’s Power Rangers. Under the terms of the agreement and in collaboration with Saban Brands, Hasbro will design, produce and bring to market a wide variety of toys, games and role play items inspired by the franchise and its entertainment properties. Hasbro will hold the worldwide rights, excluding Japan and certain other Asian markets, effective as of April 1, 2019.

“We are honored to create a world of play experiences for such an iconic action brand,” said Brian Goldner, Chairman and CEO of Hasbro. “Saban’s Power Rangers are universally recognized and their hallmark attributes of teamwork and inclusivity perfectly align with our core values at Hasbro.”

“Hasbro leads the way in brand storytelling and creating engaging experiences across its exceptional portfolio of blockbuster and partner brands,” said Haim Saban, founder of Saban Brands and creator of Power Rangers. “Quality, innovation and a focus on designing dynamic products for fans of all ages makes Hasbro a great partner for Power Rangers.”

Created by Haim Saban and launched in 1993, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers quickly became a pop culture phenomenon. Today, Power Rangers is one of the longest running kids’ live-action series in television history with nearly 900 episodes produced to date. The TV series, currently in its 25th season with Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel, and feature films, including 2017’s movie with Lionsgate, follows the adventures of a group of ordinary teens who morph into superheroes and save the world from evil. Saban’s Power Rangers currently airs in 150 markets around the world and is translated into numerous languages.

The first set of products from Hasbro will be available in spring 2019. Both Hasbro and Saban Brands are dedicated to continue growing this iconic brand. In recognition of this investment, during a period of time after Hasbro becomes the master toy licensee, the arrangement between the parties provides Saban Brands and Hasbro with the opportunity to initiate Hasbro’s purchase of the Power Rangers property.

First Look At New Power Rangers Reboot outfits

After months of speculation, at last we have our first glimpse of what the Power Rangers will look like in their upcoming gritty reboot.

Entertainment Weekly broke the news on twitter:

new power rangers

Apparently, Tony Stark designed their super-suits with leftover parts from his Iron Man outfits. Oh, and boob armor.

“Ours is an alien costume that grows on them, that’s not man-made,” production designer Andrew Menzies told Entertainment Weekly in reference to the Rangers look.

It is a very unique update to a dated spandex look, but will moviegoers take to it? If their hatred over anything related to the Ghostbusters reboot is a sign, then the answer is a resounding no.

I am open to the film, though, and hope that once we see some better photos and some footage that we can get on board the hype train and enjoy this new version of the TV classic.

NY Toy Fair 2016: The Loyal Subjects – TMNT, Power Rangers, Masters of the Universe – VIDEO

The Loyal Subjects started their business with two lines of mini-figures – GI Joe and Transformers. From there, they began rapidly branching out and increasing the type of products they were producing. Now at NY Toy Fair 2016, TLS has unveiled how deep their line goes, with new figures from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, and The Masters of The Universe.

Also at their booth were new mini-figures and vehicles from GI Joe and the classic My Little Pony.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Power Rangers figures, Megazords & Props – VIDEO

Bandai was well represented at NY Toy Fair 2016, and unveiled a load of new items for their vast Power Rangers line, ranging from the new TV show, “Power Rangers Super Dino Charge”, to their “Power Rangers Legacy” line.

In this video, we learn about the action figures for the new TV show, as well as the Legacy figures. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to film the new Legacy figures, but I can tell you that they are light years beyond the movie figures that the company released last year and fans will be extremely happy with them. Additionally, we also see the new Thunder Megazord and each of the zords, as well as new communicators and morphers from the show.

Also shown was the Ninja Megazord, but photos were prohibited since they did not have it at the show, and instead had a placeholder which will not represent the final product.

In this video, we get a walk through of the new roleplaying items, weapons, and zords from the “Power Rangers Super Dino Charge” series. Learn about all the new things you can do with these toys, as well as how the zords will work, combine, and play, along with how the Dino Chargers will affect them.

New Power Rangers figures from Ban Dai at NY Toy Fair 2014 – MMPR, Power Rangers Super Megaforce

We got a special sneak peek inside the Ban Dai booth at NY Toy Fair 2014 of the new “Power Rangers: Super Megaforce” toy line, as well as some other awesome MMPR figures and vehicles!

Kicking things off with the new TV show, “Power Rangers: Super Megaforce” has all sorts of new zords and roleplaying items, as well as a new line that features ALL of the classic Power Rangers from across the universe, along with special keys that you can scan on your smart phone to play a game with, or use on other items in the line for additional effects.

We also have new highly articulated Green Ranger and White Ranger toys in a great scale, a Legendary edition Dragon Dagger that is 24 Karat gold-plated and that you can play like a flute without putting your mouth on it, and at last – the Dragonzord! And yes, he can combine with the Megazord to make the Dragon Megazord… oh, and a little zord named Titanus that also joins with those two to make the Ultra Dragon Megazord. No big deal. Now, excuse me while I get a towel.
