Licensing Show Preview Page Posted

Posted by BurgundyRanger at RangerBoard via TL Power Up from SPRC board (no links altered by me):

Disney Consumer Products has put up their preview page for the Licensing International Expo 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada, and in the Logo Kit section, towards the end on Page 4, is the generic “Power Rangers” logo Disney uses. Compare that to the 2008 Licensing Show page and Logo Kit where no PR logo was included and we only got one piece of Go-onger artwork at the show.

Note that this does not mean something related to Samurai Sentai Shinkenger is in the works or will be announced. It is possible that Disney is only going to focus on “legacy” Power Ranger products instead of adapting a new sentai series. Also, more importantly, as Burgundy Ranger has mentioned in the past, it clearly indicates the Power Rangers property is not for sale, as why on Earth would any company be licensing out consumer products based on PR if they were going to sell the rights to it soon?
