What happened to the popular toylines you loved as a child, or discovered as a collector? Some of my favorites not on shelves right now: Battlebeasts - A line closely related to the Transformers brand. Rights are currently held by Diamond Select Toys, and for a time a line based on Minimates and heavily retooled was being considered. For now, all Diamond is releasing is this countdown. Whatever happens, I've been spoiled by this. Micronauts - American version of the line that spawned Transformers and introduced the 3.75 inch figure. In 2006, SOTA toys had planned on releasing a "Micronauts: Evolutions" collector oriented line, with some nice sculpts. Strangely, the original plan was to release them in the 6 inch scale. Even their Japanese progenitor, Microman, is inactive at this time. Micronauts will be back. Hasbro mentioned them in the Unit:E campaign, and JJ Abrams is moving forward with his Micronauts movie. M.A.S.K. - Hasbro holds the rights to MASK. They've been mentioned in connection to both Unit:E and the Hasbro Factory movie, but good information on the future of those projects seems hard to find.
