Default Hasbro To Aquire Power Rangers

Hasbro has bought the Power Rangers franchise/property as a whole from Saban with the exception of the music.

Wow I can't believe he actually sold. I figured we would get hold on to it forever once good he got it back.

Very surprised it happened now. But I figured this was coming once it was mentioned Hasbro had an option to buy. But I figured it would be five to ten years down the line. It was impossible for Saban to own the franchise forever. PR was going to get sold again. Hasbro sounds like a better fit then Disney was when they purchased the brand. They definitely want PR.

I wonder what this means for Morphicon, Boom Comics, and Hyperforce? Also will the writers go union? I expect preduction to remain in New Zealand unless Hasbro has a cheaper alternative.

No!!!!!This is a truely dark day for the franchise. I was hoping the Hasbro Option to buy thing was just a smokesscreen or at least wouldn't happen for long time. I can't believe Saban has given up his baby a second time, after he fought so hard to get it back. Without Saban in charge, PR is doomed. No one cares about that series as much as Haim.

I would rather Saban still own the series too. But you have to believe part of the deal is that Haim will still be running day to day operations. Saban will continue to be the driving force behind the series. Hasbro isn't foolish enough to think they can do it without Saban, not like Disney.

Maybe he can buy it back again if Hasbro does a bad job.

Thats not usually how this works. Hasbro won't ever want to sell the ip itself. Whoever owns PR next will probaboy buy Hasbro itself.

Yes, companies don't usually like to sell ip. Even if its not being used. Since if it succeeds with someone else. they look bad. We are lucky Disney was even willing to sell to Saban in the first place. Its unlikely this happens with Hasbro. Who aren't buying pr by accident and the show's toyline is related to a core part of its business! PR just didn't fit in Disney's profile at the time. Lets not forget that when Disney bought the franchise, they didn't own Marvel or Lucasfilm.
