[RUMOR] Tell Me If You Have Heard This Before, Disney Is Buying… Hasbro?

toy-news-and-talkPlease, before you start rioting and looting, this is just a rumor and considering all the rumors flying around since Disney bought Lucasfilm LTD and the Star Wars brand, who know if there is any weight to this at all. Now MTV Geek is reporting they are hearing rumblings that Disney and Hasbro are in serious discussions for the former to buy the latter. From a business standpoint, this kind of makes sense since Hasbro makes both Marvel and Star Wars toys right now. And would bring many new popular brands to Disney, including Transformers, G.I. Joe, My Little Pony and more. If this turns out to be true, and goes through, it would be huge for the entertainment industry and monster effects on the movie, comic book and toy industries. So what do you think? If it is true, is this a good thing? (Source: MTV Geek)

UPDATE: And this has turned out to be just that a rumor. Hasbro has let it be known that there is no negotiations going on for Disney to buy them. (Source: Providence Journal)
