Breaking Down new Power Rangers Merchandise Partners

 (Pictures from SamuraiCast.com)
 In the press release from Saban Brands says that these are their licensees: Accessory Innovations (accessories), Bandai (toys), Concept One (accessories), Disguise (costumes), Hot Properties (gifts and novelties), JEM Sportswear (apparel), Li & Fung USA/Briefly Stated (sleepwear), Mattel (toys), Mega Bloks (toys), Mighty Fine (apparel), Shout! Factory (DVD’s), and TreeHouse (toys).

We know about Bandai, Mega Bloks and Shout! Factory. Mattel has announced that there will be Power Rangers Hot Wheels. I thought they would be Power Rangers Samurai-themed but it seems it will be 20th anniversary themed.

 I was curious about the other licensees. 
JEM Sportswear
"Founded in 1971, JEM’s unparalleled ability to deliver top-quality collections across a full range of price points has made JEM the leader in high-end specialty stores, department stores, mid-tier and mass market apparel for Men, Boys and Toddlers. Through strategic licensing partnerships and private label collections, JEM’s commitment to design and quality has enormous appeal to today’s consumers with collections that display a wide range of original looks and individual fashion statements."

Treehouse toys
It seems to be a store.

Li & Fung USA/Briefly Stated
"As a global supply chain manager, Li & Fung is committed to achieving the highest standards of service and meeting the needs of international businesses through competitive pricing, quality, and reliable delivery."

Hot Properties
They already have Power Ranger buttons and stickers. They make key chains and bottle openers and other novelties.

 Concept One
"Concept One Accessories is the premier resource for licensed fashion, sports, and entertainment accessories.  The company was established in 1999 by brothers Sam and Bernie Hafif and employs over 150 people worldwide."  
Headwear, Cold Weather Accessories, Bags, Small Leather Goods, Belt and Belt Buckles, Umbrellas, Seasonal Footwear and Board Shorts

 Mighty Fine
They do clothing for 'tweens,' toddlers, men and women. Some of their products are Disney related.

I couldn't find a website for Accessory Innovations. They do make Dora and Mario Plush backpack and Monster High Tote Bag. So it looks like we will be getting Adults clothing from Mighty Fine and JEM Sportswear, children sleepwear from Li & Fung USA, Adult accessories from Concept One, Kids accessories from Accessory Innovations, and novelties from Hot Properties.
