One of the things I've enjoyed about both GL and YJ is that they've been different. Too different and original to last, it seems. But what else is new?
I think it's been mentioned in this thread, but, I don't think it's about being to different and to original to last, but YJ and GL didn't sell enough toys. And that's ultimately why they are being cancelled.
Right, I read that. I wasn't exactly making a factual claim, so much as just venting, in the form of stereotypical nerd rage (in a manner that I'd hoped would have come through clearly enough to read).

However, in all seriousness, perhaps the shows being too off-beat had something to do with the toys not selling?

Or, more precisely, perhaps it was a combination of the shows' audiences simply not demanding the toys that were supplied, and of people who buy such toys not being interested in those shows in particular. I don't really know, because I never even saw the toys. It's a foregone conclusion that I wouldn't have bought them, unless they just happened to be some exquisitely crafted collectibles.
