>>6113437>Then why did the Jackman Wolverine get released by DST in their Select line? That was a 2013 figure, well within the supposed embargo period.
Because a business is a business, they have contracts and still need to make money.
Late 2013 was when Fox gave Marvel the finger and Marvel started saying fuckeverythingFox.
So you really can't have a company have hundreds of thousands of units on a boat or warehouse, comic and toy stores having hundreds of thousands of orders, and have them eat it up just because of your feud.
You think Perlmutter is going to hand Diamond nearly a million bucks just to cover the losses they'd experience?
That Mystique? Only the prototype existed. No factory with thousands of figures in production. No molds. No orders. Very easy to can and give Fox a semi-competent lie on why they're not going pay them royalty bucks.
You think Marvel/Hasbro/Diamond/etc actually tell Fox "Fuck you, no toys for you?" They feed them the same type of bullshit line that you actually believe.
Admitting that Hasbro/Diamond/Marvel/Bandai are purposely cockblocking Fox movie designs would likely lead to a lawsuit.
