Q&A: Ships, Licensing, and More Star Wars Ships

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 28, 2014

Let's talk Vehicles in Q&A! I like them. And so do you, because I got a couple of similar questions and posted them both to clear out my mailbag. Let's also talk licensing and how Disney is really getting in to bed with Hasbro over the princesses and Frozen this week. It's license musical chairs time again!  Oh, and there's a really short video of the new Transformers Generations Leader Jetfire at the bottom.  It's cool. You'll like it.

As always, send in your questions for next time. My mailbag is empty. Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 27, 2014

I wrote most of this Q&A before going to San Diego this week, because of schedules and multiple trips - so very little SDCC. Instead, have 3D Movies Stuff, the 6-inch line, and of course let's complain about vehicles as that seems to be our lot. More newness next week!
