    Oh sweet. What are the chances of a similar deal between Hasbro and LEGO? We could get so many Hasbro brands made into LEGO sets which would make both companies a lot of money; MLP, D&D, Transforners, G.I. Joe, Magic the Gathering, it could be huge.

    I mean we already got LEGO Optimus, so I guess there’s a chance we might see another team up, but I kinda doubt it seeing as stuff like G.I. Joe is a bit too militant for LEGO

    Wait, you mean the Spychangers? Hmmm, I would love to see how Mattel would handle recreating these. Perhaps as a series of Character Cars that just Transform?

    Yes! That’s exactly what I meant! I just forgot the name Spychangers and hoped someone would understand what I meant

    Oh, imagine LEGO Power Rangers... Now that would be quiet fantastic

    If anything, the Ninjago 'Ultra Combo Mech' is proof that "LEGO Megazords" can work.[​IMG]

    I wonder if this is the first step toward that merger that Hasbro wanted years ago.

    I'm kind of impressed that they could work together after all of these years. On the other hand, where does this lead?

    For the fans, it sounds super neat to have Optimus Prime and MOTU all under one roof. For the rest of us, it sounds like it could turn into what's going on over at Disney right now. We've seen what one umbrella does to a bunch of properties. Besides, competition is good for consumers.

    As long as it stays an agreement such as this, we're good. It'll make for some fun toys and we've nothing to worry about. If it morphs into something more...yikes.

    But, yeah, I'm down for a Transformers UNO or Transformers Hot Wheels. *opens wallet*
    I do wonder about the Micro Machines thing and the Jada stuff now that they're signing a contract with Mattel for Hot Wheels... Oof.

    Likeliest stuff is outlined in the deal announcement:

    Uno Transformers
    Monopoly Barbie
    Hot Wheels Transformers (The 1:24 ones will be something to watch and compare to Jada)

    Transformers Crossover Potential:

    Thomas the Tank Engine
    Barbie
    MOTU Vehicles

    Barbie Crossover Potential:

    Power Rangers Barbie
    G.I. Joe Barbie

    Others I can see off the top of my head:

    Lightning Collection Mattel Crossovers: He-Man, Barbie, Major Matt Mason, Pulsar, and Big Jim as a Ranger team.

    MOTU Origins Hasbro Crossovers: Visionaries, G.I. Joe, MASK, etc. in the Origins form factor.

    More gaming potential:

    Barbie, Thomas, Monster High, and MOTU Magic Cards and D&D modules.

    I'd like to see some crossover figures with TMNT and MOTU.
    But I hope they'll not only do regular alt modes but character cars, too.
    Then check out these:
