Saban Brands to Shut Down this July
After Hasbro's acquisition of its properties, most notably the Power Rangers franchise, Saban Brands announced that the company will shut down on July 2nd.
Hasbro announced that they will acquired the Power Rangers franchise by purchasing it from Saban Brands for US$522 million in cash and in stocks.
Saban Brands recently announced that after 25 years, they will part ways with long-time partner, Bandai America for their Power Rangers toy license.
For weeks now, I can't help but notice the number of fans who are complaining about their "precious" Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger becoming a Power Rangers show. They think that it ruined the spirit of Gokaiger and such. Oh come on, I don't hear people complain when when it was first announced that Shinkenger will become Power Rangers Samurai! In short, the aim of this post is to educate those fans that Power Rangers is not a Super Sentai rip-off, but a licensed adaptation.
