Hasbro speak out on Disney buy-over rumours

November 8th, 2012 by Marc 1 Comment

In the midst of Disney’s buying of Lucasfilm there were worries (!) that they also bought Hasbro…

But it seems these were unfounded. Hasbro, who are world famous for their Star Wars and Transformers toys as well as games like Monoploy and Hungry Hippos, have said regarding the rumors that there’s “absolutely nothing going on that they are aware of at all, in any way, shape or form.”

Short, sweet and to the point. Whether or it it stays like that is another thing, but right now there’s nothing going on.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
