Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
Hasbro's license to make STAR WARS toys and collectibles runs out in 2017(unless, of course, the company wants to hold onto it and it's renewed by the folks at Lucasfilm). Some collectors in the SW toy community have suggested the possibility that Mattel could take over the reins and reboot the entire line starting in 2018, but based on what you just said about the DC UNIVERSE toys and other things I've heard and seen about Mattel over the years I don't think it'd be the best hands to put the STAR WARS toy franchise in. For all the problems that Hasbro's had in recent times I think Mattel would find ways to be even worse.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
