So this is a bit of interesting news on TokuNation front:

The hype for the 25th Anniversary of Power Rangers will have to wait – at least from Bandai America. We reported on Twitter last week (follow us @TokuNation on Twitter!) that Bandai America did not have an exhibitor booth for the upcoming Toy Fair 2018 event held at the end of February. That information is readily available for everyone by browsing through the exhibitor list at the Toy Fair New York City website. They do have a meeting room registered to them so we held back on posting a news story until we reached out to Bandai America regarding their Toy Fair New York City plans.

Well, we reached out and got a response.

Bandai America will not have an exhibitor booth at this year’s Toy Fair 2018. No marketing or media representatives will be traveling to the tradeshow this year. The only representatives from Bandai America that will be in attendance are sales representatives. Here is the response we received:

Thank you for reaching out to Bandai. We will not be hosting a booth on the floor of New York Toy Fair this year. You can find images and descriptions of our key items on the official New York Toy Fair Press site. Thanks! -Bandai

This will undoubtedly come as a disappointment to many fans who were hoping to kick off the 25th Anniversary of Power Rangers with excitement and anticipation. Whether or not Bandai America has new product at the show at all is unknown and perhaps other outlets will receive the courtesy to report on those products. We do know some of the products making their way out this year thanks to Bandai UK‘s exhibitor booth at the Toy Fair 2018 London event. You can find those updates by clicking here, here and here.

While this may be discouraging to collectors and adult fans we do hope you will exercise patience before passing judgement on the year itself as a whole. Our friends at Saban Brands have assured us there is so much more to come in terms of the 25th Anniversary of Power Rangers. After all, Toy Fair is a tradeshow not meant for collectors and press coverage akin to San Diego Comic Con or New York Comic Con.

We will continue to update you as news and information trickles out from this year’s Toy Fair, especially from other licensees of the Power Rangers brand.

Further proving my personal theory that Bandai is tiring of Power Rangers and is trying to slowly distance itself from the franchise.

So, RangerNation.com just had a revamp and they're doing a "25 for 25" reveal - gradually revealing 25 different items for the anniversary.

The first is already up - the Auto Morphin re-releases. However, I did a little tinkering and revealed the next two - the Boom! Studios Artist Tribute book and... press photos of the Legacy Psycho Rangers and the White Dino Ranger.
Unfortunately everything past the third reveal hasn't been uploaded yet. There also isn't any text for reveal 2 and 3, just the "Lorem ipsum" spiel.

They look fantastic in the press photos at least! Can't wait to get my hands on them.

Eager to see what the other releases are, but I'll be patient.

The Psychos look awesome, but... Black instead of Pink. Oh joy.

Until further notice, the question is do I want to spend (probably upwards of) £60 getting three figures of a set of five I'll quite likely never complete?

(DT White looks great too, of course!)

Wow no booth at Toy Fair for Bandai? What is going on with them? Haven't they had a booth every other year?

Yeah, but he's a guy so he's probably just been shuffled to a later... assortment?

Are we definitely getting Ninja Steel? I recall hearing about it, at least... did we see some control art? My memory's hazy on it now.

There was a site that said they talked to bandai directly saying ns was next, but bandai never directly confirmed it, and even the site wasnt sure if theyd be an exclusive wave or just shuffled in with another team.

Ah, fair enough, thanks. I could picture control art but that would just be my imagination, I suppose.

That’s the image we all saw for this year. That’s all we know although if it’s true it would probably only be zhane and the ninja steel guys with blue and gold

Aaah, I wasn't wrong! Don't recall having seen Psycho Black and Yellow, though.

Zhane with the four Ninja Steel guys sounds about right... *sigh*

Still no announcement on yellow zeo, or the silver space ranger to complete the space set. Not even the ninja storm team is complete.

This is exactly why bandai needs to just release 6 pack teams. This is getting out of hand.

Those Psycho Rangers NEED to feature metallic paint for at least their colors (e.g. red, blue, yellow, etc.).
