But, this dose not affect the super sentai and bandai japan

And according to that article hasbro ceo and saban are close friends.
May not be a good thing. Eventually Disney will own it.

From memory, Disney did own the rights to Power Rangers at some stage (between Power Rangers Wild Force and Dino Thunder)

I have no problem with Disney owning all the stuff I like as they have been great stewards for Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars so far. If Hasbro bought Power Rangers completely and then Disney bought Hasbro I'd be cool with that.

Disney owns nothing of Netflix and is busy pulling it's properties from it as it sets up it's own competitor to it.

Hasbro just spent over half a billion dollars to own Saban and the Power Rangers. I'd love to have a MMPR X Transformers line.

This is going to be interesting. From my understanding, Power Rangers is basically the western adaption of Super Sentai, which is owned by Bandai.

EDIUT: Whoops, just looked it up. Super Sentai are owned by Toei. Ignore me.

So I just looked up what Hasbro gets with their deal for Saban. Some sites have been saying that Hasbro will get the rights back to the 2001 Transformers RID, however that was sold by Saban to Disney long ago and thus Hasbro would have to work out a deal with Disney not Saban to get RID. Bummer.
