I love the BAD they do, but that's Hasbro stuff... Would Disney take over 4"? I don't even know that they could, as Hasbro paid to do it. Forget when the contract is up though?
I'm by no means a business lawyer, but I wonder if Disney inherited the contract Hasbro had when they bought LFL as is, or if there is an exit/performance clause (maybe it originally had one)? Or perhaps Disney could buy it off Hasbro (or maybe just buy Hasbro in whole)?
I doubt this is the case (Disney taking over) but it still frustrating to get a non-committal answer to something so simple as "Will we get still SA SW figures in the near future and beyond?" It doesn't infringe on any movie spoilers or anything like that which would fit under the "We can't discuss TFA at the moment." Instead we get "We can't talk about 2015 and beyond," so it sounds like there is a possible shift coming up and Hasbro is keeping tight lips anymore (maybe due to the backlash from the perceived misunderstanding they got about the lack of female figures) so they are covering their behinds. I mean, saying "we are (no longer) going to continue producing super-articulated figures for the fans/collectors " is all they have to say and we know. I guess in the end, we will know if there will be 3.75" SA figures when they let us know.
