LEGO Stomps Right Over Mattel, Is Now The #1 Toy Maker

Posted by Paul | September 11, 2014 at 08:51 PM EDT |

It's official. LEGO is now the #1 toy company. They've just bypassed Mattel. (Mattel has followed the "cheap route" like Hasbro as well. Gee folks. It's not working!) While contrarians will defend every last move Hasbro makes, it's evident that by Hasbro alienating collectors and making second rate toys just isn't even close to being the answer even during a bad economy. LEGO is one of the few companies, from a Star Wars standpoint, that listens to its fans, makes a ton of collector-friendly Original Trilogy focused products, and doesn't let cost prevent them from making the things collectors want to see. We hope and pray that Hasbro will take cues from from the new leader and get back to basics as expediently as possible.

Wouldn't It Be Nice?

Posted by Paul | February 25, 2014 at 08:38 PM EDT |

It's very hard to see a magnificent display of LEGO figures (amongst many The Clone Wars figures we are dying to see in 3.75" scale) like this when we know that we will never see them get made in the Hasbro line. This isn't a jab at Hasbro, but come on already. Look at all of these great characters. What kid and collector wouldn't buy all of these amazing characters in 3.75" realistic scale? When I think of how many missed opportunities Hasbro made with The Clone Wars line. It stopped in the middle of nowhere and the best characters never got a shot in this scale. But yet great companies like LEGO keep on banging them out. Why Hasbro? Why?! Click through for a bigger picture and to leave your own thoughts on this topic.
