Agreed on Cat in the Hat, but I think Van Helsing - among other choices mentioned - simply needed to be done differently rather than not at all.

Anyway, chalk both of those wonderful properties up to the brilliant minds at Universal. I can't wait to see what they give us with Curious George and King Kong.  ::)

Van Helsing should have been done by a company that knows how to sculpt monsters *coughMcFarlanecough*

As it stands, the only figure that doesn't look like **** is the Frankenstein Monster. Stupid Jakks.

I totally agree with this statement.
In my opinion, X-Men 2 could of been really good, if Toy Biz would have paid more attention to that line, and gave us more characters.  

Hulk - Should of never been made, never!!!

Yu-Gi-OHH!! - I hate the cartoon, hate the cards, hate the toys, these toys are a big waste of shelve space.

Mission Impossible - A toy line, WOW!! Could have never imagined that film to be made into toys at all.

Planet of the Apes - Yuk, Yuk, Yuk!! Whoever made this series must have lost a lot of money? A whole lot, I still see these at TRU on the clearence shelves.

I have never seen the E.T. figures, do they still make them?

X2 is another case though of companies catering adult type stuff to try and get the kids...We'll see how Spiderman 2 goes, there are an awful lot of toys all looking the same on the pegs at Target, WM and TRU...no Doc Ocks ::)

Oh yeah.  Spidey2 has some very serious cloggage issues.  Every single store has a pile of them.  The movie's not out for a couple of months yet(?) so why the hurry?  They are targeted at kids, so that may help.  But I see Hulk-proportioned clearances on some of them.  The lack of Ock is....perturbing (or perhaps I'm just frustrated that the Carnage wave showed up and I missed it).

Toy Biz has repeatedly said that despite the appearance that Hulk figs didn't move, they sold really well...I just don't see that happening. Spidey 1 figs did pretty well though, no reason these won't either...except the fact that they are pretty much identical to the first movie's look
