    It hasnt occured to you guys, that they arent successful because Hasbro might not have handled them right? Or in cases at all? Honest question here.

    Didn't say why I'm just saying what their perception of the situation is.

    I thought that was pretty much a given. Hasbro bought them out completely. What else were they going to do after?

    Surprising exactly no one. it sucks for the people working there, but I think they'll be able to find other work in the industry, but overall I do not mourn it's passing.

    I’d rather not have JDF inside of my toys.

    Still no reference to the status of the original Robots in Disguise line...

    It seems all but certain that Disney never sold it back to Saban, and now no one at Disney even knows they own it, making a video release impossible for all the stupidest reasons....

    They operate like locusts. Look at their shift towards becoming a licensing company.

    I think they'll restart it. But knowing Hasbro they may just rerelease the Zord ranger tears a trillion times.

    I assumed Bandai had until the end of the month to ship out whatever they had left in their warehouses as June 30 heralds the end of Q2. Now, I'm not so sure. We know that Bandai has still been shipping product, so I don't expect Bandai's Power Rangers toys to blip out of existence overnight at retail. Chances are high that we'll continue to see some stuff ship from regional distribution centers at least through the end of the summer/early fall until retailer's warehouses dry up.

    Its not a new thing really. Its been their MO since the mid 90s I believe. My heart was broken several times with the end results Hasbro provided into several loved video game franchises.....
