Hasbro Gains Power Rangers Toy Rights

Hasbro Gains Power Rangers Toy Rights

After 25 years of products that ranged from eh to confirmed epic status, Bandai is set to lose their title of: master rights license holder for Saban’s Power Rangers at the end of 2018.  Starting in 2019 toy juggernaut: Hasbro will gain the license with new products expected to hit stores in Spring 2019.

If Hasbro handles this license the way they have both Star Wars and Marvel from Disney, there is a lot to stoked for in 2019.  With both Star Wars, and Marvel the legendary toy company has been able to appeal to collectors through their Star Wars Black, and Marvel Legends lines, while at the same time producing mass product for children to enjoy.

I look for Hasbro to the same thing when it comes to the Power Rangers license: quality products for collectors in probably a 6 inch scale, and more playable toys for the children who actually watch the current incarnation the show.  Bandai did some great things for the Power Rangers property in the past few years by targeting their legacy line toward collectors, while still maintaining a children’s line.  However they never could find the perfect balance, the legacy line prop replica’s would be incredible, while their 6 inch figures left a lot to be desired in terms or sculpt, articulation, and accessories.

Look for the first wave of Hasbro Power Ranger figure to hit store shelves, and online retailers in Spring of 2019.

I grew up in North Carolina, where my love for the Spiderman and Batman the Animated Series on Fox Kids fueled my journey of Geekdom. In January 2013 I started my own site: thepicreview.com and for over two years hosted my own podcast the Confirmed Epic Podcast. Since 2016 the podcast continues on the gww radio network. As of early 2015 I joined the geeks with wives crew for a greater opportunity to work with similar people who let the passion for the properties they love drive them, and a chance to interact with a world wide fan base of fellow geeks. I am a happily Married Geek, as of November 2014 to my Wife Abby who only shares my geek passions when it comes to Superman, Wonder Woman,the Flash, as well as Captain America. We live just outside of Charlotte, NC with our three dogs: a Golden Doodle: Sadie, our Jackabee: Penney, and our Beagle: Cookie. In April of 2018 we were blessed with our first child: Harper Jane Bell, who we named after Harper Row from Scott Snyder's Batman run. When I’m not covering or taking part in geek culture as The Reel Brad Bell my secret Identity is Mr. Bell a High School U.S History Teacher and AP Gov. Teacher. My Wife is an ICU/PICC/Charge Nurse. The only thing that comes close for my love of Superhero’s and Star Wars is my love for the Carolina Panthers! #KeepPounding Much to my Wife’s chagrin I am a self proclaimed poster addict and add a couple of Mondo Posters to my collection a year.
