No More Saban Brands

Source article here.

TLDR (am I doing that right?): Saban Brands closes its doors July 2nd.

Well, you knew the Hasbro deal had to come to this. And given that Saban Brands existed solely for the sake of getting Power Rangers off Disney and try to make it viable in the interim years before the recent acquisition, I don't think it was any surprise that this company would not last long beyond that. Sucks for the guys and gals getting laid off as a result and I do wish them all the best in whatever future endeavors they pursue.

That having been said, this DOES put a lot into question what happens to a lot of the older stuff they do own, such as the Beetleborgs, VR Troopers, and that Next Mutation series. Is Shell-Shocked once again going to be the only semblance of Saban's Ninja Turtles the world is going to see come July?

I shudder to think.
