Licensing International Expo 2011 is now in full swing; the trade show kicked off yesterday, and will run through the 16th. Saban Brands is in attendance, and can be found at table 1864, which is significantly larger then most tables at the show. This photo on Rangerboard shows a presentation for Saban’s emPower campaign that took place on the first day of Licensing Expo 2011.
More impressive then the size of Saban Brands’ booth, or even that photo though, is the news that something pertaining to Power Rangers will be announced at Licensing Expo International 2011, which is supposedly “mind–blowing.” Power Rangers On–Air Central initially reported the “mind–blowing” comment, which has now surfaced elsewhere, and was supposedly made on Twitter by someone close to Saban Brands that didn’t want to spoil the news.
So what exactly is the “mind–blowing” event? To be honest, no one outside of Saban Brands seems to know right now, at least no one whose able to speak about it. At present, the best that The Power Rangers Samurai Times, or anyone else can do is to speculate. 732 episodes of Power Rangers on NetFlix is certainly significant, but not exactly “mind–blowing;” 732 episodes of Power Rangers coming to DVD on the other hand, now that would definitely qualify as “mind–blowing.” The announcement of a new Power Rangers movie already in pre–production stages would also qualify as “mind–blowing,” at least for me. Other then that, I’m not sure what this announcement could be. Have a guess? Post a comment and share it with us here at The Power Rangers Samurai Times. We’re going to try and stay on top of this story, and as soon as we know what the “mind–blowing” announcement is, we’ll cover it.
UPDATE: Licensing Expo International 2011 has now ended, and no “mind–blowing” announcement pertaining to the future of the show was made. It is now believed that the “mind–blowing” announcement may have been that NetFlix licensed all 732 episodes prior to Power Rangers Samurai for instant streaming, but this obviously contradicts the statement that the announcement would pertain to the future of the show.
