Movie Tie-ins Galore but Latest Potter Is Too Dark for Lego
Posted 02.17.09 by reelz
Reports back from the 2009 Toy Fair in New York offer first looks at the Terminator Salvation, Watchman, and Dragonball Evolution product lines. Check out the picture-filled displays over posted over at MTV. The goodies up for viewing weren't limited to toys though. The Watchmen display included everything from a themed doormat, to a Rorschach ski mask, to "a framed display case featuring The Comedian's dog tags and a pair of guns given to him in 'Watchmen' by US President Richard Nixon."
The one sour note at the Fair was sounded by the Lego representative, who explained that "there are no plans on producing any new Harry Potter sets. With the films getting darker, it has become very hard to produce kid-friendly sets."
