Hasbro is doing well right

Hasbro is doing well right now, and i'm happy to see that they are putting some of that money into collectors items. This toy may be one of those rarities that hits the market, so i'm very tempted.

Though I have zero desire to get this...

...I'm actually pretty glad this is being made.

It's nice to see a bloated company like Hasbro having the hutzpah to make a collector toy that will appeal to a market they don't normally pander to.

I didn't hate this movie, but I didn't love it either. I have no desire to get toys of the Cloverfield monster, but to be fair, I loved The Host...and I have no desire for toys of that monster either. 14" really that "huge"? Hasbro's own Transformers Unicron and Primus are around that and also some of Bandai's Megazords. Then again, those robots have a much smaller "shelf footprint" as this thing probably does.

Anyway, if I'm gonna get a monster like this, it'll be this handsome gentleman.
