  • Hasbro-DreamWorks Animation Merger Falls Through

    He-Man can breath a little easier today. It is being reported by Variety Magazine that the merger between Hasbro and DreamWorks Animation has fallen through. Neither party is saying why talks fell apart, but industry analysts are suggesting that DreamWorks was asking for too much money. Hasbro was willing to pay $2.3 billion for the merger, but DreamWorks was asking for about $3 billion. You can read more over at by clicking HERE!

    Wow. I'm surprised that the deal didn't go through. It sounded like it was a sure thing. Hopefully this will be a wakeup call for Mattel, and they will buy the entertainment rights back.

        How much did Disney pay for Marvel? Wasn't it 12 billion?

          Thanks Toy & Media Guru! Hey, I hear there's a spot open at Mattel! Your ability to connect with others, your endless patience, personal integrity, and limitless passion for MOTU would make you a perfect fit. You should apply.

          And on a side note, there's already an existing MOTU head that looks enough like you that you wouldn't have to use up a SKU to get your mug in there.

          God, I'm hilarious.
