Why Mephisto won't happen in ML (t)
Posted by WC on August 16, 2006, 8:44 am, in reply to "Mephisto will never happen in ML - and stop posting these random choices - use a single thread (t)"
Because of Walmart - they won't stock any toys with either a blatantly demonic or Nazi connection. They probably didn't know about Ghost Rider too much, but the other two are not family friendly and would not go down well with Walmart customers and parents. Mephisto is being done in Marvel Select anyway so those of you who wish to have that character can get it there. But for Legends, it's a definite no-no. Hasbro confirmed this at SDCC when asked about these types of figures.

: one choice after another.
: And try thinking about your choices for a

: Taskmaster? What purpose would that serve if
: you understand the true nature of a
: "Build A Figure"? Taskmaster can
: be just sold as a single figure without
: needing to be assembled from various parts
: to make a larger figure.
