Is it too early to start bitching that if the do Doctor Who they need to me classic not modern?

If Doc.W is announced, then i think theyll run it a bit like StarTrek - different series, different doctors from through-out time.

Don't you mean focus on classic until it's run into the ground, then do a mix of all series when retailers are stuck with old product and there's no more support and then say the line is a failure?

:rolleyes: What he said . . .

Well, it worked for Star Tre... um, never mind.

Hey... what happened to odds on Harry Potter? That would be a pretty big deal, and timely, with the big finale of the movies/inevitable merchandising bonanza. Has Chuck ever said explicitly, absolutely, positively, never, never, no?

Lots of easy pieces for that; most hairpieces could be retools, one or two robe sculpts for everyone, then it's just wands.

check facebook tomorrow for the annoucement of the winner....

the only ones on the entire list that would bankrupt me would be GI Joe (which we know it isn't) and DC (which we also know it isn't) so really the annoucement for me will be a sigh a head shake and a wish of what could be....

Last excitement before we'll see what it is. This is my very professional and completely subjective analysis:

We now those wont be or will definitley be made:

X-Men: First Class

Simpsons

Star Wars

DC

Blackest Night

Cap America

GI Joe

Mortal Comba

Horror

Those are too arkward or that train already left:

Jurassic Park

Highlander

A-Team

Beetlejuice

Buffy

Detroit 1-8-7

Harry Potter

Goonies

Men In Black

Tron

Possible license issues:

Indiana Jones

Green Lantern

Not very possible because i.e. too many civilians:

Cowboys VS. Aliens

The Walking Dead

Baceball

True Blood

Vampire Diaries

Glee

Real Steel

The Hobbit (not at this point)

Dark Knight Rises (not at this point)

Voltron (not as minimates, right?)

Transformers (not as minimates, right?)

Not a huge surprise:

Disney

Battle Beasts

Which leads us to the following in my eyes realsitic possibilities:

The Tick

Image Comics i.e. Invincibles

Mass Effect

James Bond

Thundercats

WoW

Pirates of the Caribbean

Hellboy

NHL Guardians

TMNT

MotU

I hope it's Hellboy. Or Thundercats. Or MotU. Or TMNT.

Regarding how good Halo works out, I could imagine it will be WoW or Mass Effect. (Don't really know the latter.)

If they got the license, it would be a very good moment to do Pirates of the Caribbean and it would be huge. And they already produced pirates, right. (Wait, is this a pro or a con for this line?)

So my guess is Jack Sparrow.

EDIT: Just read about the Lego pirates line. Those the mini block figure license is already gone.
