    I mean, Hasbro did alright toys with another Bandai property, YoKai Watch, so I'm... hesitantly hopeful for now??

    Is Megaforce a good watch or crap?
    I like the ranger's costume design though.

    YoKai Watch is a Level-5 and Nintendo property, Bandai is just a license holder.

    Megaforce is by far one of the worst seasons.
    I meant how Hasbro adapted the Japanese Bandai toy designs.

    There was a few pics of the Dinobots as the Megazord. I hope this is a lot of fun, Hasbro could be the next Marvel if they play their cards right

    It may be the worst tokusatsu ever made, just watch Gokaiger instead.

    If Power Rangers was to be put in a Hasbro Shared Universe of some kind, do you guys think they would make Lightspeed Rescue apart of G.I. Joe?

    With this happening that Hasbro buying the power rangers brand and the others that comes with it. I hope we see some really cool stuff Hasbro does with the new license. I hope we get to see some popples and my pet monster plush come out of this as well.

    They'd put MMPR in and maaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe Beast Morphers, or Train wars, or nine-way space punch. Whatever's current basically, nothing else would be considered.

    The least I hope from this is that kids can get a good Megazord at retail.
    I got my kid the last zords to complete the movie Megazord for his birthday and that combined mode really sucks.
    He typically doesn't mind one bit, but I hope Hasbro can do better for PR fans in the future.

    HAHAHAHA!!!! Good one!!!

    I can agree with some of what you've said (M.A.S.K. and Gobots) but not so much others (Visionaries and, especially, Micronauts). I think they have done something with the latter two but the former? Ugh.

    Anyway, this news of Saban property acquisition worries me somewhat. I'm not a Power Rangers fan but I do have memories of the show when I was a wee teen. Still, I know a lot of people have a lot of love for the franchise and I want to see it done justice by Hasbro. Lately, Hasbro hasn't proved it can handle other franchises as well as it should. Let's see what comes of all this in 2019.

    Now PR fans can find empty shelves where PR toys should be. Yay.

    I thought they were skipping GoBusters?

    EDIT: Wow Hasbro, you surprise me by going backwards. GoBusters was a great season.

    Just wait. I bet the 2020 season of Power Rangers will be based on Toqger.
