Distribution woes – trying to get store’s online component to carry exclusives.
Quality Control? Concerted effort to make the best figures as possible looking at individuals, but focus is on cases
Marvel Legends – SRP is $14.99
Giagantic Battles will continue
Character who rides a floating chair will be coming to Marvel U.  Professor X?
Are action figures as we know it going to die out?  Boys like action figures. They’re going to be around a long time.
Peter Parker and a guy in a suit are going to appear in Marvel U
Death’s Head is a wish-list figure – would be a good Transformers/Marvel U crossover
Legends style tie in waves are likely.  I.E. Spider-man Legends, etc.
