About The Hasbro Deal...

So I suppose I should offer my five-cents on the news regarding Hasbro's acquisition of the entire Power Rangers brand from Saban and what my thoughts are on the matter. I could offer my thoughts on the matter, but the only thought that comes to mind is... meh.

I suppose there are concerns going forward. After all, the brand has changed hands twice before and the change in leadership has somehow degraded the overall product even further down. The Disney-era stuff started off well enough despite early misgivings before falling somewhat off the rails and while I haven't seen enough of the current "Neo-Saban" line of products to form a solid opinion, what little I have seen hasn't given me much hope.

I guess there is something of a cautious optimism and perhaps even hope for the best in that Hasbro will bring the brand to bigger heights. I'd like to think that, given the numerous properties under their belt, they'll treat the brand as well as they did those, for whatever that's worth, of course. I mean, they got a new logo that looks current yet slick. They've got a new season based on a somewhat ancient Super Sentai series that has something of a unique look. It's a promising start, if nothing else.

In any event, I shall wait and see where this leads. And then I either praise them to the heavens or damn them to hell.

Or, you know, I'll just shrug my shoulders and move on with my life.
