Unboxed: DC Legion of Collectors Green Lantern Box (Last one)

So I got a delivery notification for the final Legion of Collectors box and naturally went to YouTube to check out Funko’s video.  Well I guess they were still worn out from ECCC and haven’t got around to it year. In the meantime I went to eBay to check listing to see what was in the box.  I am hoping they get a video posted soon because it looks like they went all out with their finale box.  The items themselves might be ‘meh’ but the value is for sure there with the amount of stuff you get.  Check it all out below if you’re curious.  Like stated earlier, this is the last subscription box for Legion of Collectors as they move them to retailer exclusives.   (more…)

Hasbro in Talks to Buy Mattel, Again

UPDATE (11/16 12:40 PST):

Mattel (MAT) doesn’t appear to want to play with Hasbro (HAS). Both stocks are lower after Mattel reportedly rejected a takeover offer from rival Hasbro. Mattel told Hasbro the offer undervalues the company and didn’t factor in the potential rejection from anti-trust regulators. Mattel will reportedly continue to negotiate. (Yahoo financial)

It looks like Hasbro has their eye on Mattel once again. Many would think that the two companies combined would dominate the market. Realistically, the result of a combined Hasbro and Mattel would be a large company, but far from dominant in the fragmented toy industry. Together, they would control one third of the US market for traditional toys and games, and just 22% globally. The rise of companies such as Lego, Funko, NECA, Just Play, and others are starting to offer a counterbalance with their growing market share. (more…)
