The question would be then, at least I'd think, whether or not the game is the "flagship" of the multi-media blitz. Is everything centered on the game, or do the book/comics hold enough weight that you think the toy subline is going to be ok?
Personally I think the video game would have been the thing that was catching the most attention immediately, and thus you'd want the subline released with it, but pushing a figure line back a year is no small thing for Hasbro... I bet someone's pissed in Pawtucket tonight.
They could try filling that timeframe's void with repacks... I'm sure there will be figures, come that point in time, that people haven't had enough of from 2007's line. Interesting situation. Should make for good questions for the Q&A next time around. I'm kinda bummed it's not as frequent as it had been because it'd be nice to ask tomorrow what they'll be planning on doing with the FU line.
