That's still not much of a case, then. HG's argument will be that Hasbro is infringing on HG's license and that the use of trademarked property to sell toys at SDCC robs HG of revenue. However, if the art in question is inside the box, it's not being used to sell the toy, as a prospective buyer cannot see it. If it's inside the box and not visible until after purchase, it's merely a "historical document" that records a known product in Hasbro's past. HG might as well sue a retrospective book about TFs for including a picture of G1 Jetfire's toy. HG's case will further be hindered by the fact that they have never tried to sell a product containing a Jetfire-decoed Veritech in the Robotech line. It's essentially impossible for HG to prove their case, as the art is inaccessible to potential buyers and the toy itself is a non-transforming version of the character that is a remold of a toy Hasbro originally released in stores in 1983, two full years before Robotech premiered in the US and likely before HG even had the license to SDF Macross at all. It's very clearly patterned on the Grumman F-14 Tomcat, just as the Macross Valkyries were, and no claim that one is derivative of the other can really be asserted or proven since they're both derivatives of another company's product in the first place (Grumman's F-14). Finally, the most glaring tell that HG is just looking for some quick "go away and shut up" money is their hilarious demand that Hasbro go get the toys back from everyone who bought one at SDCC, which they know full well is impossible. HG just wants Hasbro to pay them to go away, and in all likelihood that's exactly what will happen, because it's cheaper to do that than deal with what may end up being exorbitant court fees. However, if Hasbro's legal team feels they could turn the tables on HG and hit them with a frivolous suit judgment, that could force HG to pay both parties' legal fees, which would be just delicious to watch. It wouldn't take HG down, I don't think, because they actually mostly trade in real estate these days (and pre-Robotech, as well), but it might at least result in some loosening of their deathgrip on Macross/Robotech in the West.
