    Toybiz/Marvel Toys is slowly dying heh, LCBH sells like crap and TNA does for the most part and is now going to Jakks, hope they have another line or two planned out to try and get a success.

    As for the changes in licenses i dunno, i suppose if Mattel used the DCU/SH people the WWE figs might turn out good.

    And i guess Jakks WWE figs were already OK so the TNA figs should be ok.

    Looks like Toybiz is done. It's an end of an era. I've been collecting Toybiz figures for 18 years, guess nothing good can last forever.

    I always liked Toybiz's Marvel toys and what they did with them (even though I never collected them), But I NEVER liked the WCW/NWO figs, and I could not even stand the way the TNA figs looked. I gave up collecting wrestling figs about 3 years ago (to much $$$) but I still enjoy looking at the detail that Jakks put into them. Ecspecially the Classics line. This will be a good move for TNA. I'm wondering what magic Mattel will make with the WWE.

    Damn, with the license going to Mattel, there is no hope of them letting Hasbro "borrow" the Sgt. Slaughter license to use in the GI Joe line. I was kinda hoping there would be a way to make a Sgt. Slaughter in the new 3 3/4 scale that JAKKS was using.

    While I doubt Jakks will let Hasbro make Sgt. Slaughter there is still hope for one in the new 3 3/4 Jakks wrestling figures.

    Actually I don't think Jakks has anything to do with that, I think that's all Vince and Sarge because he's not a main line wrestler.
