    Ugh. A littlest pet shop cartoon with Blythe.

    I'm kind of disappointed with duel masters. but maybe if I watch more of it there will be better episodes. Prime only got better after darkness rising after all.

    And nothing other than reminding investors that Hasbro is keeping these specific propertys in their core lineup for the coming year.

    Would like to see Micro Machines, M.A.S.K., Visionaries, and Primordia/Inhumanoids get some more refreshing Action Toys, games, and Media into the Hasbro lineup.

    Hasbro has a very strong roster of IP's and I wish them well at the upcoming Expo. Now if they can just avoid any Battleship licensing related catastrophies going forward (i.e., turning an innocuous board game into a Michael Bay wannabe movie), they should be fine.

    Here's hoping they find a new licensee to handle the fan-club duties.

    Ha ha, do they really want to claim Battleship after what happened at the US box office?

    You almost make it sound like something actually happened for that film at the box office. Almost. ;)

    I don't think it's that kind of expo. They might announce new media-related stuff, though, perhaps relating to Prime season 3 or Transformers 4.

    See the failure of the Thunder cats revamp for why those won't happen.

    I wonder if anything will come out of this licensing expo due to lack of updates.

    What's wrong with the Thunder cats revamp? That's a cartoon network project anyway. I think bandai of Americas mixed bag toyline played the biggest disappointment. But I'm Happy with the six inch figures and the lizard cannon.

    You besides that it's a big fat failure? It's Warner bros studios that owns it. And it's produced through WB animation. All of which are part of Time-Warner, like Cartoon Network. The toys not selling well are why it's a failure.
