Hasbro is ending Galactic Heroes, and moving to a pre-school line of figures. Is the door open for Star Wars Minimates?

How much more pre-school can you get from Galactic Heroes? Two points of articulation just too fast-eddie for the tykes? :)

I wonder if Super Hero Squad is ending, too... That line has been scraping bottom with endless Iron Man repaints and only one or two new characters at most per wave.

That would be awesome, but it might also be the Lego line that's keeping Lucas from agreeing to license mates.

Still surprises me that Minimates of Halo were made when Mega Bloks has been making Halo sets for a few years now, so anything is possible. Though STar Wars is a much bigger franchise then Halo obviously.

I'm pretty sure the show officially starts tomorrow (the 13th) and runs to the 16th.

Thor movie figures:

Mattel's going to be previewing stuff tomorrow as well. Toyfare isn't like a con, where companies stagger their rollouts; we should see everything by Monday. BTW, a friend of mine was able to attend last year (and will again this year, lucky bastard) and he said that Melissa & Doug is by far the biggest exhibitor at the show.

One of my best most memorable Christmas memories was getting the Skystriker. Cool they're finally revisiting it, though I would have no space for either of those and I'm not really into the line anymore anyway. Starscream repaint is pretty nifty, as well. Too bad Hasbro scrapped the idea of Transformers the Joes could fit into.

SDCC, not ToyFair. None the less: OMG GIMMIE!!!!!

I will sell body parts for that Starscream. Especially since I guarantee he will be 4X the price on ebay the weekend of.

I like it, but it doesn't transform. Considering it's limited availability, I'll really have to think about it. It seems hard to pass up, but hard to justify too.

I know what you mean, but I am serious, this will quickly become the most expensive exclusive ever. Though when I first predicted $3000 I thought they weren't releasing the Skystriker, so it would be the only way to get the mold. Now I'm still thinking expensive, but the price by better than two thirds. :P

How Thor SHOULD have looked in the movie, IMHO.

I won't be happy until we see Thor's motorbike, 4x4 or something equally daft

i am happy to see DC Direct bringing back the Green Lantern line, probably to keep the Blackest Night line going without keeping the name. next to minimates this was the highest requested line.

Did we know Diamond got the Musters licence before today? No Minimates - just 7" figures:

http://www.artasylum.com/blog/2011/02/munsters-blog/

I saw that too. I kinda hope that we don't get Munsters Minimates announced; I can't imagine there'd be a buyer for them when there wasn't for things like the Godfather, Beverly Hills Cop, ect. And no, the Munsters wouldn't qualify as "huge".
