        Huh, I wasn't expecting that. I wonder why Hasbro isn't doing their own distribution there anymore. This could be a good thing, Hot Toys knows that market a lot better than Hasbro. This makes a very weird licensing triangle: Hasbro sub-licenses 12-inch figures to Sideshow, Sideshow distributes and works with Hot Toys for some 12-inch pieces, and now Hot Toys distributes Hasbro product in Japan.

        Didn't Tomy do it in the past? Did they do it up until this Hot Toys deal?

      Poetic justice that the ballot stuffers end up with Rosie O'Donnell instead of Jaina?
