    Barbie - Some direct to DVD stuff, but nothing that could carry a whole movie unless it was a comedy of sorts, kinda like Enchanted

    He-Man, Masters of the Universe - If they follow one of the last script treatments it will AWESOME.

    Hot Wheels - Some crappy direct to DVD crapfest

    Max Steel - I know nothing of Max Steel

    Magic 8 Ball - Not as a movie, but a twilight zone episode where the magic eight ball really worked, but screws people over. Some kind of metaphor for hell would have to be worked in since it TZ. In reality it will be a movie where some kids get a magic eight ball that works and a sinister CEO wants to magic eight ball for himself and they use the eight ball's power to save the local community center with a break dance competition. Basically take Breakin' 2 and add a magic eight ball.

    You're assuming it actually could work in the first place?

    A He-man movie could work, but I bet this'll all just be direct-to-DVD/Blu-ray crap.

    I won't see all of them but I can see how they could be made into movies.

    Barbie - A teen oriented girl movie. Barbie's adventures with her friends & boyfriend Ken. Maybe she is just out of college & tries out a bunch of jobs (AKA the various Barbie job oriented dolls)

    He-Man, Masters of the Universe - no need to explain this one

    Hot Wheels - Some sort of racing oriented movie or something like Fast & Furious

    Max Steel - Was an action cartoon years ago. If they can translate GIJoe, they can translate this.

    Magic 8 Ball - Maybe some sort of fantasy film where whatever the 8-Ball comes up with, changes the course of their lives. OR Someone who can't made decisions for themselves & relies on the 8-Ball to make the decisions for them. Potential for some funny scenes when it comes up with a choice not right for the situation.

    Monopoly movie- A cute as hell kid lives on Baltic with his parents in a roach infested, condemned tenement. Kid impresses some dude, gets a job doing nothing but saying lame Bart Simpson-esque zingers and in the end, bests a bad guy's schemes and his parents are given a house at Park Place.

    and...Fails as a movie.

    hey, if they could make a saturday morning cartoon out of a Rubik's Cube, someone in a studio can pinch out a two hour turd from a Magic 8 Ball.

    I know Bionicle had at least 1 DTV, but there is enough in that toy line for a feature- more than a Max Steele movie.
