Can someone help answer this question that always bug me? How is it that Megabloks, a TOY COMPANY, is able to obtain Hot Wheels and Barbie licenses, which belong to Mattel, another TOY COMPANY? I thought that toy companies have something against licensing their properties to other toy companies. It would be like, if for example, Bandai creates action figures of Kai, Johnny Thunder, Agent Chase, Laval, etc. I understand with Kre-O making Transformers, since Hasbro seems to have, at least partially, purchased Kre-O, and making toys based on IPs you make yourself is completely normal.
I think it has to do with Mattel not having a construction line of toys. The other possibility is that Mattel owes a piece of MegaBlok or visa versa. Either way Mattel makes money with the license and doesn’t have to put any money into developing it’s own construction line.
Yes, the Call of Duty sets, and the other Collectors series sets are all much better quality. I will be posting an article tomorrow (see the homepage) about my encounters with MegaBloks. You might be interested to read it and participate in the discussion. 🙂
While it’s an open and never ending argument, I am and forever will be a loyalist to LEGO products. Whenever I see Megabloks, or MegaJunk as I call, I immediately throw them away:)
