Settled out of court eh? So a toy manufacturer cold war then? We won't sue you if you don't sue us?

Could that mean we might see a figure released with the name Autobot Hot Rod ;) :lol:

Motto: "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes"
Probably dismissed because the DC Superhero girls toy line was discontinued. They still make animated films/series but no more toys, which is all Hasbro really cares about. Too bad. My daughter was taking advantage of the clearance prices/closing of TRU to snatch the basic figures up dirt cheap, and she never did get a Bumblebee.
