    This is a grail of mine that I doubt will ever fall into my lap. Great vid Brian, as always. I would love to know how many of these made it out of the factory door, and onto retail shelves. Were some destroyed due to lawsuit threats? Were some just thrown away in a dumpster?

    In a near perfect Bizarro world, Mr. Rock gets his own Netflix show, and Mego 2.0 puts out a new figure making my grail hopes a grail achievement realized.
    I post in thy general direction!

    Thank you!

    The whole lawsuit thing is mere conjecture on my part, I doubt I'll ever know for certain. One of the things I hope for is a huge caselot find of these someday. Stranger things have happened.

    From the video,it sounds like Lincoln also took Hasbro's "Boy oh boy it's a Hasbro toy" thing too.
