w00t finally found a Funko Pop Dr Doom. There aren't a lot of places that carry Funko stuff around here and the ones that do have very little variety. I know I could just go to Amazon but where is the fun in that?

Here's How Hasbro Decides Which Toys It Will Turn Into Movies

It's [Transformers] one of a few Hasbro brands that has been adapted to the big screen alongside G.I. Joe and Battleship.

With several more brands set to get the movie treatment in the next few years, we spoke with Hasbro Chief Marketing Officer John Frascotti to find out exactly how the company selects which of its toy lines get adapted to the big screen and how you can possibly turn a board game into a movie.

"We look for those brands that have story and character at their foundation because inevitably for any type of storytelling format, whether it's a movie, a television show, a digital comic ... it has to have great story and great characters at it's foundation," says Frascotti.

STAR WARS CAR, A DOOMSDAY DOLL: TOYS OF COMIC-CON

LOS ANGELES (AP) — When it comes to designing coveted collectible toys for sale at Comic-Con, the annual celebration of pop culture lifting off Thursday in San Diego, the sky's the limit for the designers at Mattel. Fittingly, the building where Mattel's dreamers conceive of their limited-edition playthings is just down the street from the Los Angeles International Airport.

Inside the colorful design center — a Hot Wheels-themed shuttle bus transports employees from Mattel's parking garage — the designers have spent the past year working on 10 toys created especially for the Comic-Con crowd, including a replica of the Batmobile from the upcoming game "Batman: Arkham Knight" and a 9-inch-tall action figure of Superman killer Doomsday.

"We don't have to worry about retail. We don't have to worry about margins," said Doug Wadleigh, Mattel's senior vice president of global brand marketing for boys and entertainment. "We don't have to worry about operational efficiencies. We only have to worry about creating the coolest toys for our fans. Period."

So far only Spidey, Spidey 2099, Mayday, and Hobgoblin (Phil Urich) are the only announcements on the Spidey wave.

It looks like I'll be able to add Radioactive Man and classic Hawkeye Marvel Legends to my Thunderbolts shelf.
