    So after seeing the movie for the 2nd time yesterday, Im wondering how come they never made a toy line? They have at least enough for a McFarlane type line. You could have the different variations of the NS4, NS5 and that big robot that crushed the house.

    I could say the same for the War of the Worlds reboot, both of these could use at least a one shot toy of maybe Sonny/Sunny and the Tripods would've done me over. Ah well, at least we're getting a Cloverfield toy >_>

    Not enough of the 'core action figure market' liked the movie. That's kids and collectors.

    i can explain why no I AM LEGEND toys:
    would it be that the monsters were so bland that infants were not afraid of em?
    or do you really want the video store playset with all those mannequin figures?

    They were supposed to make Minimates of Spooner & the 'bots awhile back, and while there's been no news of "won't happen", there hasn't been any news of "happening soon" either. :redface2: 

    They weren't Nike, they were Converse. ;)
