    Well, nothing really in the way of transformers. But for anyone who who knows disney, they do not like the "properties" reproduced.

    Just like when Warner got me banned from ebay for making a custom Nurse Joker, I know guys that airbrushed a mickey mouse on a shirt in Fl and then got some papers from Disney that he was being sued!!!

    So basically, BE CAREFUL IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A CUSTOM MARVEL FIGURE!! Disney just may be watching.

    HAHA. Well, for sale I mean.

    That is why we all owe Habsro a big thank you. They get it. Oh, look, more promotion for us!!! Guy buys one toy to make custom, buy 5 more to make more of the same, gets other people to buy more!!! Now they are buying t-shirts, hats, underwear, socks, panties...speaking of that, I am going to check to see if there are some Autobot panties out there.

    I didn't even think about that. That's really awful for some people. Jin Saotome and Satomiblood especially spring to mind.... jeeze, I'd hate to see them not busting out as many awesome customs because they can't sell them without being sued.

    I didn't even think of that, but I do remember that nurse joker! I was bidding on it, before I knew you.

    Man, so, someone customizing say, a Marvel Legends figure could be sued/harassed by Disney?

    Man, that is F'd up.

    Well thats good. I'm curious just what exactly Disney has the rights over now. Obviously the comics and any new films made, but I wonder what else?

    Damn it! I'm working on a ww2 Marvel Diorama of Sabretooth and Wolverine at the D-day beachs and I'm using Indiana Jone's German action figures and Marvel's figures..Disney has stake in MGM as well. This could be bad, haha.

    Means Jack.

    Disney owns lots of companies you wouldn't even think of and doesn't really meddle with them all that much. Plus doesn't Marvel still own all the licenses and rights? That means while the legal team of Disney can intervene if they really want to, the company Marvel still has their say in their licenses and what goes on between them and their contract with Hasbro about their toys(Which I believe ends in 2017). All I really see outta this deal is the possibility of some really kick ass Pixar made, Marvel License Movies. Which would be awesome without a doubt.
