    The one thing I remember is hearing how the guys running the toy companies know and respect him for his legacy. I think if he wanted Micronauts, he could get it. My impression is the license(s) are based on what the buyer is looking for.

    Pure speculation:
    I was reading another thread where Doc had a planned new body, then people were disappointed he didn't release them yet. Is this the new Mego body???????
    That is fantastic! I'd like to see what comes out next and find out what new toys there will be in the future.

    New Mego playsets too?, perhaps, I wonder.

    I wanna see the whole range that is licensed!

    I wouldn’t dispute that for a moment. On top of that, you guys have a much better feel and knowledge for this stuff than I.

    Rampart, this is Squad 51. How do you read?

    Yep, I was in the same room and Brue is correct.

    To a point. Marty told a story where Hasbro president Steve Hassenfeld gave Marty a lot of help after the demise of Mego, financially and otherwise, whenever he had a good idea for a toyline because of his respect for him (plus Marty had told Takara to go to Hasbro with the figures that would eventually become Transformers). But then when Hassenfeld suddenly passed away, the new folks in charge wouldn't even return his calls.

    Obviously I get that what EMCE did/does is with Marty's blessing and endorsement what with his image on the backer card.
    I would assume that it would not do anything as the "New Mego" would be different then "Old Mego"
