    I watched the same three episodes you did. I may catch Barbie later.

    I felt they sort of glossed over Kenner's acquisition by Hasbro. They talked about Hasbro's bungling of the perfect contract and having to renegotiate. But why exactly did Kenner have to sell?


I remember Kenner. I don't know what toy of theirs I had but I definitely had something.

    They didn't talk about the commonly held belief that Marvel contracted Hasbro for a SHIELD vs Hydra line of figures and when they pulled the license, Hasbro replaced SHIELD with GI Joe and Hydra with Cobra.


Wow! I never heard that. How cool would a SHIELD versus Hydra line have been? Nick Fury! I loved that guy. I would definitely have bought toy versions of him. Even in my 20s!
