Thread: Mattel loses DC Action Figure license to Spin Master

  1. #21
    I have bought 22 of the new 8 inch Mego figures. I have not bought any of the 14 inch DC figures because I don't care for the scale. If those figures were 8 inch I would by most of them.

    I don't really care for the Mattel DC stuff, but I'm hoping Imaginext stays put! I love collecting those little guys!

    I think it was a missed opportunity they didn't do an Injustice vs Masters of the Universe line.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Imaginext would be gone too wouldn't it? Its part of Mattel so it should be in the same boat. I would guess all these sub licenses like FTC, Mego, Mezco etc would have to renegotiate with Spin Master.

    IDK, Fisher-Price/Imaginext may be another license?

    EDIT: A google seach yielded: Mattel will retain preschool and "girls'"-toy rights. And supposedly Hasbro has made attempts to buy out Mattel, as it is struggling amidst lay-offs.

    It's a different category, i.e. Toddler Toys, and Mattel retained the toddler toy license, it didn't go to Spin Masters.
